Question: Imagine a printer which prints 64 pages in a minute. When that printer printed for 3 hours except 10 minutes when there was paper jam, then how many pages will it print?
(a)         10000
(b)         20000
(c)         10880
(d)         11520
Answer: (c)
Solution: Printer prints 64 pages in a minute
Minutes it printed in 3 hours are:  60min*3hr-10min =170min
170*64=10880 pages

Question: An internet recently hired 8 new network, in advertisement 20 network already employed. All new network came from university A. In addition 75%of computer advertisement came from same university A. What fraction of original 20 network advertisement came from same university A?

(a)         13/20
(b)         20/13
(c)         15/20
(d)         15/13
Answer: (a)
8 new n/w,20 is already employed
total n/w=20+8=28n/w
so that 75% came from same university then 28*75/100=21
we all know 8 n/w is recently hired then 21-8=13
so that the fraction is=13/20

Question: A foreign language broadcast records which last 75 minutes on each of two sides. If it take 3 hours to translate one hour of broadcast, then how long will it take to translate 20 full records?

Answer: 150 hours



time taken to complete one record is 75*2=150,150/60=2.5hrs
so 2.5*20=50 full records
3 hrs to take onr hr broadcast ,so 50*3=150

Question: Let X be a four-digit number with exactly three consecutive digits being same and is a multiple of 9. How many such X?s are possible?

(a) 22

(b) 20

(c) 21

(d) 23

Answer: (b)


Let the four digit number be ′aaab′ or ‘baaa′.

Since, the number has to be a multiple of 9, therefore 3a+b should be either 9, 18 or 27.

Case I: 3a+b=9
Possible cases are: (1116,6111,2223,3222,3330,9000)

Case II: 3a+b=18
Possible cases are: (3339,9333,4446,6444,5553,3555,6660)

Case III: 3a+b=27
Possible cases are: (6669,9666,8883,3888,7776,6777,9990)

Hence, total number of cases is 20.

Question: In a software company 4/10 of people know C++, 2/4 of them know java, 2/8 of them know neither,find the total possibility to know C++?

Answer: ¼


possibility of knowing c++= 4/10
possibility of knowing java=2/4

there are 4 possibilities, 
a person knows java but not c++=2/4*(1-(4/10))=3/10
a person knows c++ but not java= 4/10*(1-(2/4))=1/5
possibility of knowing neither =2/8
therefore, probability of knowing any one language only= 3/10+1/5=1/2
therefore ,possibility of knowing both= total probability- probability of knowing neither- probability of knowing anyone language only 
total probability is always 1 
so, required probability= 1 -(2/8) -(1/2) =1/4


Question: How many rational numbers are between 1 and 5

(a) 3

(b) 2

(c) 0

(d) infinite

(e) finite.

Answer: infinite


let cost price is 100rs
then marked price will be:175rs
so to make no profit or loss the product should be sold at 100rs
now discount:175-100=75rs
so % discount:(75/175)x100=42.85%

Question: A man ate 100 bananas in five days, each day eating 6 more than the previous day. How many bananas did he eat on the first day?

Answer: 8


Intially 1st day=x
2nd day=6+x
3rd day=12+x
4th day=18+x
5th day=24+x
as per condition 5 days
