36. In the reading room of a library, they are 23 reading spots. Each reading spot consists of a round table with 9 chairs placed around it. There some readers such that in each occupied reading spot there are different number of readers. If in all there are 36 readers, how many reading spots do not have even a single reader?

The key here is realizing that the tables that aren't empty each have a DIFFERENT number of readers. There's only one way to do this.

The very least number of people you could have at a table is just 1. The next highest number that's different than that is 2, so another table can have 2 people. Then another table might have 3, and so on. But if you add up 1 + 2 + 3 + and so on up to 8, you get 36 people. So if we seat 36 people at different tables such that there's a different number at each table, the number of tables we used is 8. And since the table with the most number of people has eight people, then there are enough seats at the table, so we don't have to worry about that.

That means 23 - 8 = 15 tables are empty.

57. How to solve cube problems, like a big cube is divided into 64 smaller cubes. Some sides are painted in blue, red or green. Can you plz. guide me how to approach these types of problems?

The given question is not fully correct .

I will give u another eg ...

If a cube is painted red and cut into 64 pieces .

Approach this question as ,,

64 pieces = 4 *4* 4 so take n=4

just use this formula

1. no sided painted =(n-2)^3

2. 1 sided painted =6 * (n-2)^2

3. 2 sided painted = 12 *(n-2 )

4. 3 sided painted = always 8 (a cube has 8 corners)

59. Suppose we have 10 liters of water... we have only two buckets, 1 of capacity 3liter and another of 7 liter.so how will we make combinations such that 1 bucket will have exactly 5 liters of water?

Fill the 7L bucket. Empty water from the 7L bucket into the 3L bucket, until the 3L bucket is full. Empty the 3L bucket and repeat. Now there is 1L of Water in the 7L bucket. Empty the 3L bucket and transfer the 1L of water from the 7L into it. Now fill the 7L bucket again. This time fill the 3L bucket until it is full, you will remove 2L of water from the 7L bucket because there is already 1L of water in the 3L bucket. Now you have 5L remaining in the 7L bucket.

60. If the list price of a book is reduced by Rs. 5, then a person can buy 5 more books for Rs. 300. The original cost of the book is
(1) Rs. 15
(2) Rs. 20
(3) Rs. 25
(4) Rs. 30

Let 'x' be the no of book that we buy with 5 rupee less from the original book price and we buy 5 more books with the rest money each costing original book price.

so the no of cases arises are

Case 1:
Solving this equation we get the value of x =22.5 (which is a fraction value)
so this case is not possible.

Case 2:
Solving this equation we get the value of x =13.33 (which is a fraction value)
so this case is not possible.

Case 3:
Solving this equation we get the value of x =8.75 (which is a fraction value)
so this case is not possible.

Case 4:
Here we get the value of x =6 (which can be possibly a no. of book, so the original price of the book is 30).

74. If A can copy 50 pages in 10 hours and A and B together can copy 70 pages in 10 hours, how much time does B takes to copy 26 pages?

A can copy 50 pages in 10 hrs.

A can copy 5 pages in 1hr.(50/10)

now A & B can copy 70 pages in 10hrs.

thus, B can copy 90 pages in 10 hrs.[eqn. is (50+x)/2=70, where x--> no. of pages B can copy in 10 hrs.]

so, B can copy 9 pages in 1hr.

therefore, to copy 26 pages B will need almost 3hrs.

since in 3hrs B can copy 27 pages.

79. A mixture of 50 liters of milk and water contain 10% of water. How much water must be added to make water 20% in the given mixture?

That's wrong, realize as you add water to the mixture, the volume of the mixture increases as well. Thus if you added 10 ltr of water to the 50 ltr mixture you would get a 60 ltr mixture. made of 45 ltr milk and 15 ltr water. That's 25% water in the mixture, not the 20% water being asked.

So, from the start:

m = Milk
w = Water
x = amount of water to add

For the mixture without any additional water:

w = 5 ltr
m = 45 ltr

Thus :

(45 + (5 + x)) - ((45 + (5 + x)) * 8/10) = (5 + x)
(50 + x) - ((50 + x) * 8/10) = (5 + x)
(50 + x) - (40 + (x * 8/10)) = (5 + x)
(50 + x) = (5 + x) + (40 + (x * 8/10))
50 + x = 45 + x + (x * 8/10)
50 = 45 + (x * 8/10)
5 = x * 8/10
5 * 10/8 = x
6.25 = x

The new mixture = 56.25 ltr
And 20% of 56.25 = 11.25 ltr = 5 (original amount) + 6.25 (amount of water added)

Thus, How much water must be added to make water 20% in the given mixture?

6.25 ltr water

80. After 10 years A will be twice the age of B before 10 years and now if the difference is 9 years between them then what is the age of B after 10 years?

84. Pipes are laid by an oil company. If the company has to lay down 3km of pipes and each pipe is 25 meters long, calculate and print the number of pipes needed to cover the distance?

I presume "cober" is a typo for "cover".

3km of pipes is 3000 meters.

3000 meters divided by each pipe length of 25 meters is 120.

Experience and prudence dictates that the oil company should acquire 126 pipes so that there will be no slow-down in the event of breakage or defects. But that's probably not really part of the question.

93. A man walks at 4 km/hr on plain, then at 3 km/hr uphill and then returns through the same road at 6 km/hr downhill and at 4 km/hr on the plain. It takes altogether 6 hours. So what distance he covered in one way?

total distance 2 reach up d top and return back =24km!!!

let us consider flat land=x km and slope land=y km

speed @ flat land=4kmph,==> 4km=1hr=>1km=1/4hr
thus, for x km==>x/4hr

speed a@ walkin up @ slope=3kmph==>3km=1hr==>1km=1/3 hr
thus for ykm==y/3hr

speed returning back in slope=6kmph==>6km=1hr==>1km=1/6hr
thus for ykm==y/6hr

thus total hour for travel=x/4 +y/3 +y/6 +x/4 =6 hours
solving , x+y=12km

thus total distance to go to top of hill and return back =12+12=24km :)

a) 13
b) cannot be determined
c) 3
d) 42

suppose the no. is a
a = Dx +8 ...1
a = 3Dy + 21 ...2
So from 1 & 2 we get
D(x-3y) = 13
13 is prime so x-3y has to be 1
let x = 4 and y = 1
We get a = 60
2a = 120
So 120 when divided by 3D = 39
we get remainder as 3
So answer is 3

so they are getting 90 rs less
90 is 30% of 300 so they r getting 30% discount

143. What is the number of zeros at the end of the product of the numbers from 1 to 100?

zeros are obtained when the product of numbers involves the number '5' or multiples of number '5'.

for example,the product of 1*2*3*4*5=120 i.e there is only one zero bcoz there is only one '5' and no other multiple of '5' is involved in multiplication.

similarly 1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9*10=3628800 i.e there are 2 zeros in the end product bcoz there is a '5' and a '10' which is a multiple of '5' are involved.

however in 25*24=600 you see 2 zeros in the end product bcoz 25 can be written as 5*5.

therefore the number of zeros in the end product of numbers 1 to 100 is 23

155. Falling height is proportional to square of the time. One object falls 64cm in 2sec than in 6sec from how much height the object will fall?

The falling height is proportional to the squere of the time.

Now,the falling height is 64cm at 2sec

so, the proportional constant is=64/(2*2)=16;

so, at 6sec the object fall maximum (16*6*6)cm=576cm;

Now, the object may be situated at any where .

if it is>576 only that time the object falling 576cm within 6sec .Otherwise if it is situated<576 then it fall only that height at 6sec.

158. Paul, the octopus who has been forecasting the outcome of FIFA world cup matches with tremendous accuracy has now been invited to predict ICC world cup matches in 2011. We will assume that the world cup contenders have been divided into 2 groups of 9 teams each. Each team in a group plays the other teams in the group. The top two teams from each group enter the semi finals (after which the winner is decided by knockout).
However, Paul has a soft spot for India and when India plays any team, Paul always backs India. Alas, his predictions on matches involving India are right only 2 out of 3 times. In order to qualify for the semi finals, it is sufficient for India to win 7 of its group matches. What is the probability that India will win the ICC world cup?

We have two chances to win the world cup.
Either India can win all 10matches or Win 7 out of 8 group matches + win the semi final and final matches.
Case 1: To win all 10, probability is (2/3)^10.
Case 2: Probability of winning 7mathces out of 8= (2/3)^7 and
Probability of Loosing the 1 match= 1/3.
This process can occur in 8 ways.
probability= 8*((2/3)^7 * 1/3)
To win semi final and final match probability is (2/3)^2
Total probability=8*((2/3)^7 * 1/3) * (2/3)^2 = 8/3 * (2/3)^9.
So total probability, Case1+Case 2= (2/3)^10 + 8/3 * (2/3)^9

166. What is the sum of all the four digit numbers formed using the digits 0, 1, 2 and 3. None of the two digits should be repeated?

Process of solving
From these four digits '0' cannot be at first place to form four digit number
so we have 1, 2, or 3 can be at thousand's place
keeping one digit at thousand place can have 6 different four digit number
so that means
1000*6 + 2000* 6 + 3000* 6 = 36000

Now come to hundred's place we can have all four digit at this place , '0' will not contribute any thing to sum so in all four digits number 1,2,3 will be at 4 times on same place
so that means
100*4 + 200* 4 + 300 * 4= 2400

Now come to tenth's place ...same as hundred
10*4 + 20*4 + 30*4= 240

same for unit place
1*4 + 2*4 + 3*4= 24

in last if you add whole the total sum of all possible four digit number formed is 38664

169. Ten boxes are there. Each ball weighs 100 gms. One ball is weighing 90 gms.
i) If there are 3 balls (n=3) in each box, how many times will it take to find 90 gms ball?
ii) Same question with n=10
iii) Same question with n=9

If n=3 then answer is:1

Take two balls and weigh. If both are equal then remaning ball is 90 gms
else if second is less than first one then second ball is 90gms
else if first is less than second on then first ball is 90 gms

If n=10 answer is: 3

Divide the n=10 into two 5-sub groups

compare the both the groups

If 1group<2group then 90 gms ball is present in the first group
else it is present in the second group.

Take the less weight group and divide it into 2-2-1 subgroup.
Now compare the 2-subgroups first. If first 2-subgroup is less than the second 2-subgroup then 90gms is present in the first 2-subgroup otherwise it is present in the second 2-subgroup. If both are equal then the remaing 1-subgroup ball is 90gms ball.

Now take less weigth subgroup of 2-subgroups. Now compare the two balls that are existing in the 2-subgroup group. Then we can find the 90 gms ball.

So we require 3 chances for detection of 90 gms ball when n=10

If n=9 then answer is :3

170. There are two square rooms. Both are of same height. The second room is 5m longer than the first room. The rate for papering the walls is 10 paisa per square meter. The total cost for papering the rooms is Rs 60 and Rs 80. What is the height of the rooms?

A house will have four walls...
papers used only for construction of walls!!!!

1st House: 4 *a (side) *h (height) * 10 = 60 =======> 4ah=6 --(1)

Given 10 paise reqd...per construction of 1 square meters

2nd House: 4*(a+5) (side)*h (height) * 10 = 80 =======> 4ah + 20h=8---(2)

Area formula will be horizontal side*vertical height
the plane of wall will be along it's height!..

Solving (1) & (2) we get 20h=2.
Hence, h=0.1m

answer, about 26%

square of 10cm by 10cm equal 100cm2
for it to increase by 60% then the new size is 160cm2
so each side would now be about 12.6cm by 12.6 cm
then each side went from 10 to 12.6cm for an increase of about 26%

175. Tanyas grandfather was 8 times older to her 16 years ago. He would be three times of her age 8 years from now. Eight years ago what was ratio of Tanyas age to her grandfather?

at -16 the ratio is 8
at -8 the ratio is ?
at 0 the ratio is ?
at +8 the ratio is 3

so the ratio went down from 8 to 3 (5times) in 3 period of 8 year.
i.e. every 8 year is goes down by 5/3

so after one period of 8 years it was 24/3 - 5/3 = 19/3 or 6.33

so 8 years ago he was 6.33 years older than her.

206. What is the minimum no of coins of the same size that can be placed on a table so that each coin touches only three, others? All coins must lie flat on the table. What will be the arrangement of the coins?

I belive the answer is 20. 5 sets of four diamonds which when put together form a circle. Hard to eplain without a picture. The each daimond has no space in the middle. Two coins are touching three others and the other two coins are only touching two. But when the ends of these diamonds are put together each coin is touching only 3 others.

207. In a office, 30% are supervisors, 40% are male employees, 60% of supervisors are male. Probability that a random chosen employee is a male or a female?

I would say probability of randomly chosen a male employee is 22% while that of female is 48%.

Base on my understanding of the question,

let 'x' be the total employee (supervisors and ordinary employees)

supervisor: 30% of 'x' = 0.3x
male supervisors: 60% of 0.3x = 0.18x
and female supervisor: 40% of 0.3x = 0.12x

total male employees: 40% of 'x' = 0.4x
therefore, number of ordinary male employee = 0.4x - 0.18x = 0.22x

=> P(male employee) = 0.22x/x = 0.22
i.e. probability of male employee is 22%

total female employees: 60% of 'x' = 0.6x
therefore, number of ordinary female employee = 0.6x - 0.12x = 0.48x

=> P(female employee) = 0.48x/x = 0.48
i.e. probability of female employee is 48%

I hope I've interpreted the question correctly.

208. One Rectangular Plate with length 8inches, breadth 11 inches and 2 inches thickness is there. What is the length of the circular rod with diameter 8 inches and equal to volume of rectangular plate?

Given volume of the rectangualr plate is equal to volume of circular rod (cylinder).

diameter of the circular rod is 8 inches
so, radius is 4 inches

length of the rectangualr plate is 8 inches
breadth of the rectangualr plate is 11 inches
width of the rectangualr plate is 2 inches

volume of the rectangle is length*breadth*width
volume of the cylinder is PI*radius*radius*length


volume of the rectangle = volume of the cylinder
8*11*2 = (22/7)*4*4*length
length = 8*11*2*(7/22)*(1/4)*(1/4)
length = 1232/352
length = 3.5inches

a) 6 6/13 days
b) 3 3/13 days
c) 9 2/5 days
d) 12 12/13 days

3 men -> 8 days

as men decrease => days increase

=> 1 man ->24 days =>1 man's 1 day work = 1/24

4 boys -> 7 days

=> 1 boy ->28 days => 1 boy's 1 day work = 1/28

so 2 men + 2 boys 1 day work = 2/24 + 2/28 = 1/12+ 1/14 = 13/84

so 2men + 2boys finish 13/84 of work in 1 day

so days to finish total work = 84/13 i.e 6 6/13

231. A number of cats got together and decided to kill between them 999919 mice. Every cat killed an equal number of mice. Each cat killed more mice than there were cats. How many cats do you think there were?

Assume ,
n=Number of cats and
m=Number of mice per cat

Given that,
n*m=999919 and m>n

Finally , n*m=109*13*7

The following possibilities are rules out because m>n

Number of Mice per cat (m)
Number of cats(n)

So n and m can take the following values (possibly)
Number of Mice per cat (m)
Number of cats(n)

I think any of the above 3 could be the answer.
Let me know if you get to know any other solution!!!

39explain :: the digits shown in the clock are 1,2,3........12. their total sum is 1+2+3+....12 = 78. since it is given that sum of one bigger part is equal to total sum of another 2 smaller parts.=> bigger part = 78/2 = 39.

253. A shopkeeper allows discount of 10% on the marked price of an item but charges a sales tax of 8% on the discounted price.If the customer pays Rs.680.40 as the price including the sales tax , what is the marked price?
(b)Rs 700
(d) none


let the market prise be M.
10% discount of M=M/10
selling prise excluding tax=M-discount=>M-M/10=9M/10
8% tax on discounted prise=9M/10*8/100
=>actual selling prise including tax= 9M/10 + 72M/1000
which is equal to Rs.680.40
=>9M/10 + 72M/1000 = 680.40

256. A ship leaves on a long voyage. When it is 18 miles from the shore, a seaplane, whose speed is 10 times that of the ship is sent to deliver mail. How far from the shore does the seaplane catch upo with the ship?

Consider the speed of ship be a then the speed of plane is 10a;
Let t be the time taken by the ship to travel 18 miles then a= 18/t;
Speed of plane =180/t;
Distance covered by the ship during next t' time = 18+ 18*t'/t;
Distance covered by sea plane = 180*t'/t;
Equating both 162*t'/t =18 ;
t'/t = 18/162;
Distance to be covered = 180* 18/162 =20 miles ;

a) 65
b) 55
c) 50
d) 45

let total cost be c= a + nk

where a = fixed cost and

k = variable cost and n = number of boarders

total cost when 25 boarders c = 25*70 = 1750 i.e. 1750 = a + 25k

total cost when 50 boarders c = 50*60 = 3000 i.e. 3000 = a + 50k

solving above 2 eqns, 3000-1750 = 25k i.e. 1250 = 25k i.e. k = 50

therefore, substituting this value of k in either of above 2 eqns we get

a = 500 (a = 3000-50*50 = 500 or a = 1750 - 25*50 = 500)

so total cost when 100 boarders = c = a + 100k = 500 + 100*50 = 5500

so cost per head = 5500/100 = 55

258. A ship started from a port and moving I miles per hour. And other ships strated from L and moving with H miles per hour.At the place where these two ships will meet
port G H I J K L

Let us consider that the distance betwn each ports be 1 mile because all of them are same ..
By the question we find that the speed of the ship frm the port is equal 2 distance from the port 2 the port I , so he will arrive at I in 1 hr , n similarly the other ship will reach J in 1 hr as port H is 2 mile aways from port

Therefore the meeting point must be betwn the port I and J , (ANS ) ,

By calculation i m getting the metting point as 0.6 miles from the port I and 0.4 miles from the port J..

Formula is ::
Distance covered =6H/ (H+I) for the ship left from the port ..

259. Some are 1 kg weights and some are 2 kg weights. The sum of the weights is 260.What is the number of 1kg weights?

There are a total of 150 weights. Let the number of 1 Kg weights be 'x'. Then the number of 2 Kg weights is '150 - x'. The sum of the weights is 260 Kg. ie [x * 1 + (150 - x) * 2] = 260. By solving this you will get 'x' as 40.

261. A Car has run 10000 miles using 5 treys interchangeably have an equal worn out by all treys How many miles each Tyre should have run?

I think the answer should be 8000 miles per tyre... because the remaining 2000 miles you use the other tyre... and for 4 wheels the fifth tyre would have run 4*2000=8000 miles... thus the answer should be 8000 miles per tyre...

262. A power cable is to be run from a power plant on the bank of a river 900 meters wide to a factory that is located 3000 meters downstream on the opposite bank. If the cost of laying cable under water is Rs. 5 per meter and that of laying overhead on land is Rs. 4 per meter, find the point downstream where the cable is to cut across the river.

(a) 450
(b) 3900
(c) 1800
(d) 2100
(e) 2700

tht point downstream where the cable is to cut across the river = 3000-900=2100
so the answer is 2100.
if cost is to be calculated then (2100*4)+(2100*5)=18900

273. If the product of the 3 consecutive integers is 210, then the sum of the two smaller integers?

the three consecutive integers be x,y and z.
given: xyz=210. the unit place ends with 0. so it must be a multiple of 5,10,...
if it is a multiple of 10 means it must lead to a large number because 10*9*8=720 or 10*11*12=1320. so it must be a multiple of 5.
so now 5*6*7=210 or 5*4*3=60.
according to the given question 5,6,7 only satisfies. so the numbers must be 5,6 and 7.
the sum of smallest integers is 5+6=11.

288. In the following figure:A B C
Each of the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 is:

a)Represented by a different letter in the figure above.
b)Positioned in the figure above so that each of A + B + C,C + D +E,E + F + G, and G + H + I is equal to 13.

Which digit does E represent?

By given condition, we have
A+B+C = 13...(1)
C+D+E = 13...(2)
E+F+G = 13...(3)
G+H+I = 13...(4)
Add up (1)+(2)+(3)+(4), we get
52=13*4 = A + B + C+ C + D + E+ E + F + G+ G + H + I = C+E+G+(A + B + C+ D +E + F + G + H + I)
= C+E+G+(1+2+ 3+ 4+ 5+ 6+ 7+ 8+ 9) = C+E+G+(1+9)*9/2 = C+E+G + 45

Hence,C+E+G = 52 - 45 = 7...(5)

By (5), we have E = 7-C-G <= 7-3 = 4 (since, the smallest C,G are 1 or 2)
By (2)-(5)., we get D-G = 6, or D = G+6...(6)
Since D,G are between 1 and 9,
so D= 7, 8,or 9, and we have G=1,2 or 3

By (3)-(5)., we get F-C = 6, or F = C+6...(7)
Since F,C are between 1 and 9,
so F= 7, 8,or 9, and we have C=1,2 or 3

By (6) ,(7) & (5):
Case(i) When G =1, D = G+6 =7,
and then C = 2, F = C+6=8, E = 7-C-G= 4
Or C = 3, F = 9, E = 3 (invalid,since the same C,E value)

Case(ii) When G =2, D = G+6= 8,
and then C = 1, F = C+6=7, E= 7-C-G=4
Or C = 3, F = 9, E = 2(invalid,since the same C,G value)

Case(iii) When G =3, D = G+6=9,
and then C = 1, F = C+6=7, E =7-C-G= 3(invalid,since the same E,G value)
Or C = 2, F = C+6=8, E=7-C-G = 2(invalid,since the same C,E value)

In these three possible cases of the values of G, we obtain that the only valid value of E is 4

291. The length of a rectangle is increased by 60%. By what % would the width have to be decreased to maintain the same area?

Let the length be L and breadth be B...therefore initial area ia A=L*B
Now if we increase length by 60%, the new length will be L+3L/5...
Let the decreased amount of breadth be x...
since the area is same in both the cases, we can equate the area as
L*B=8L/5(B-x)...Solving this we get x as 3/8...which is nothing but 37.5%
Therefore the breadth shld be decreased by 37.5%

292. An aircraft takes off from A (72° N Lat, 40° E Long) at 2.00 Am local time to B (32° N Lat, 50° W Long). If the flying time is 10 hours what is the local time of landing at B?

40+50 =90.
for 1 deg 4 minutes, so for 90 (90*4)=360minutes =6hours
2am+10hours journey-6hours=6hours.
so the answer is 6am.

293. The size of a program is N. And the memory occupied by the program is given by M = square root of 100N. If the size of the program is increased by 1% then how much memory now occupied?

therefore suppose that X=2n-1 any odd no. where n=1,2,3.........

y=2n-3 we have to choose Z such that n should be real no.

suppose z=2n-7; therefore (X+Z)/2=114; (2n-1 + 2n-7)/2=114; solving this we get n=59; Y= 115

324. How many positive integer solutions does the equation 2x+3y = 100 have?

a) 50
b) 33
c) 16
d) 35

Its very simple... See by observing that in 2x+3y=100 2x is always even and 100 is also even so u need to have 3y also positive. so within 100 3 can be multiplied by 100/33 times to get an even number. So (b) 33 is the answer.

325. My flight takes of at 2am from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place with coordinates 36N70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?

a) 6:00 am
b) 6:40am
c) 7:40
d) 7:00
e) 8:00

The Answer is 6:40 AM

The destination place is 80 degree west to the starting place. Hence the time difference between these two places is 5 hour 20 min. (=24hr*80/360).

When the flight landed, the time at the starting place is 12 noon (2 AM + 10 hours).

Hence, the time at the destination place is 12 noon - 5:20 hours = 6: 40 AM

329. A non stop bus to Amritsar overtakes an auto also moving towards Amritsar at 10 am. The bus reaches Amritsar at 12.30 pm and starts on the return journey after 1 hr. On the way back it meets the auto at 2 pm. At what time the auto will reach Amritsar?
a) 2.30pm
b) 3.00pm
c) 3.15pm
d) 3.30pm

Answer:b:3 P.M.


Distance between two points where Bus meets auto=x

Distance between the point where bus meets auto for the second time and Amritsar=y

velocity of bus=Vb

velocity of auto=va




time taken by auto for covering the distance y=y/va=1 Hour

hence time at which auto reaches Amritsar=2 P.M.+1 hour=3 P.M.
