What is the compound interest earned at the end of 3 years?

I. 

Simple interest earned on that amount at the same rate and for the same period is Rs. 4500.

II. 

The rate of interest is 10 p.c.p.a.

 III. 

Compound interest for 3 years is more than the simple interest for that period by Rs. 465.

A.
I and II only
B.
II and III only
C.
I and III only
D.
I and Either II or III only
E.
Any two of the three

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option D

Explanation:

  I. gives, S.I for 3 years = Rs. 4500.

 II. gives, Rate = 10% p.a.

III. gives, (C.I.) - (S.I.) = Rs. 465.

Clearly, using I and III we get C.I. = Rs. (465 + 4500).

Thus, II is redundant.

Also, from I and II, we get sum = 100 x 4500 = 15000.
10 x 3

Now C.I. on Rs. 15000 at 10% p.a. for 3 years may be obtained.

Thus, III is redundant.

Either II or III is redundant.

A and B can complete a work in 15 days and 10 days respectively. They started doing the work together but after 2 days B had to leave and A alone completed the remaining work. The whole work was completed in :

A.
8 days
B.
10 days
C.
12 days
D.
15 days

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option C

Explanation:

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = ( 1 + 1 ) = 1 .
15 10 6

Work done by A and B in 2 days = ( 1 x 2 ) = 1 .
6 3

Remaining work = ( 1 - 1 ) = 2 .
3 3

Now, 1 work is done by A in 1 day.
15

Therefore 2 work will be done by a in ( 15 x 2 ) = 10 days.
3 3

Hence, the total time taken = (10 + 2) = 12 days.

20 30 60 60 10

Work done in 3 days = 1 + 1 = 1 .
10 10 5

Now, 1 work is done in 3 days.

What is the speed of the train?

I. 

The train crosses a signal pole in 18 seconds.

II. 

The train crosses a platform of equal length in 36 seconds.

 III. 

Length of the train is 330 metres.

A.
I and II only
B.
II and III only
C.
I and III only
D.
III and either I or II only
E.
Any two of the three

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let the speed of the train be x metres/sec.

Time taken to cross a signal pole = Length of the train
Speed of the train

Time taken to cross a platform = (Length of the train + Length of the Platform)
Speed of the train

Length of train = 330 m.

I and III give, 18 = 330     x = 330 m/sec = 55 m/sec.
x 18 3

II and III give, 36 = 2 x 330     x = 660 m/sec = 55 m/sec.
x 36 3

Correct answer is (D).

A train moves past a telegraph post and a bridge 264 m long in 8 seconds and 20 seconds respectively. What is the speed of the train?

A.
69.5 km/hr
B.
70 km/hr
C.

Let E = Event of drawing 2 balls, none of which is blue.

n(E) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of (2 + 3) balls.
= 5C2
= (5 x 4)
(2 x 1)
= 10.

P(E) = n(E) = 10 .

Let the number of students in rooms A and B be x and y respectively.

Then, x - 10 = y + 10      x - y = 20 .... (i)

     and x + 20 = 2(y - 20)      x - 2y = -60 .... (ii)

Solving (i) and (ii) we get: x = 100 , y = 80.

The required answer A = 100.
