A. 80

B. 81

C. 82

Solution :

Ramu Marks in English be X then

((x+83+87)/3 + 100 + (87+83+85)/3 +(99+97)/2 +79)/5 = 90

Ramu’s English marks is 94 which is same as Ravi’s telugu marks

Then Ravi’s Java Marks will be

((98+96+94)/3 + 100 + (99+100+95)/3 +(98+98)/2 + java) ) /5 = 95

Java marks = 83**What is the mark obtained by Raju in Maths if his mark in Maths and Hindi mark are equal?**

1.3X * 15 * 2/ 100 = 39X/ 100

39X/100 – 24x /100 = 750

Then X = 5000**Kajal lent sum money at CI rate of 10% per annum for 2 years. He would have got Rs 2753125 more if he lent it for same CI rate but compounded half yearly. Then what is the amount lent by Kajal?**

P ( (1+5/100) 4 – (1+10/100) 2 ) = 2753125

By solving We get P = 50 crores**A square field is having the area of 58564 Sq m is to be fenced with Four poles & Three wires.Four poles are kept on corners of the Square field. Three wires are fenced at height of 1,2,3 respectively from the ground coiling the Poles. Due to coiling each wire used for fencing is 5% greater than the perimeter of the square. The cost of one-meter wire is Rs. 10 and cost of each Pole are Rs 1127 then the total cost of fencing is?**

A. Rs.30000

B. Rs.32000

C. Rs.33000

D. Rs.35000

E. None

Answer –**D. Rs.35000**

Solution:

S 2 = 58564

4S = 968

Wire used = 3*968*105/100

Cost of wire = 30492

Cost of poles = 4 x 1127 = 4508

Total cost of fencing = 30492+1127 = 35000**A pipe can fill a tank in 15 minutes and another pipe can fill it in 12 minutes, but a third pipe can empty it in 6 minutes. The first two pipes are kept open for 5 min in the beginning and then third pipe is also opened. Time taken to empty the water tank is?**

A. 10 mins

B. 25 mins

C. 35 mins

D. 45 mins

E. None of the Above

Answer –**D. 45 mins**

Explanation :

x/6 – (x+5)/15 – (x+5)/12 = 0

x = 45 mins**Two containers A & B are having volumes 140 Litre and 60 litres filled with oil having different prices. Now equal quantities are withdrawn from both containers A & B such oil drawn from A is poured in B and oil drawn from B is poured in A . Then the price per litre becomes equal in both the containers. Then what is amount of oil drawn from B in litres**

A. 32

B. 36

C. 42

D. 48

E. Cannot be determined

Answer –**C. 42**

Solution:

Let price of oil in container A is R and price of oil in container in B is P

Then total price of A is 140*R

Total of Price of B is 60*R

Now suppose L litres are withdrawn and replaced

Then the price of oil in Container A will be (140*R – L*R + L *P)

Price of one litre is (140*R – L*R – L *P)/140

Similarly price of oil in container B is (60*P – L*P + L *R)

Price of one ltre is (60*P – L*P + L *R)/60

Now both prices are equal

Solving equations we get L is 42
