- Question 6 of 10
##### 6. Question

1 pointsCategory: Quantitative Aptitude**Directions For questions 6-8:**There takes a race between A and B under different conditions. Answer the following questions accordingly.A runs 5/3 times as fast as B. If A gives B a start of 80 m, how far must the winning post be so that A and B might reach it at the same time?

CorrectSolution: Speed of A : Speed of B = 5/3 : 1 = 5 : 3 i.e., In a race of 5 m, A runs 5 m and B runs 3 m i.e., A gains 2 m over B in a race of 5 m, therefore A gains 80 m over B in a race of 5/2×80 = 200 m. Hence, winning point should be 200 m away from the starting point.

IncorrectSolution: Speed of A : Speed of B = 5/3 : 1 = 5 : 3 i.e., In a race of 5 m, A runs 5 m and B runs 3 m i.e., A gains 2 m over B in a race of 5 m, therefore A gains 80 m over B in a race of 5/2×80 = 200 m. Hence, winning point should be 200 m away from the starting point.

- Question 7 of 10
##### 7. Question

1 pointsCategory: Quantitative Aptitude**Directions For questions 6-8:**There takes a race between A and B under different conditions. Answer the following questions accordingly.In a 100 metres race. A runs at a speed of 2 metres per seconds. If A gives B a start of 4 metres and still beats him by 10 seconds, find the speed of B.

CorrectSolution: Speed of A = 2 m/s, Time taken by A to run 100 m distance/speed=100/2 = 50 seconds. A gives B a start of 4 metres and still A beats him by 10 seconds =>B runs (100-4)=96 m in (50+10)=60 seconds, Speed of B = distance/time = 96/60 = 1.6 m/s

IncorrectSolution: Speed of A = 2 m/s, Time taken by A to run 100 m distance/speed=100/2 = 50 seconds. A gives B a start of 4 metres and still A beats him by 10 seconds =>B runs (100-4)=96 m in (50+10)=60 seconds, Speed of B = distance/time = 96/60 = 1.6 m/s

- Question 8 of 10
##### 8. Question

1 pointsCategory: Quantitative Aptitude**Directions For questions 6-8:**There takes a race between A and B under different conditions. Answer the following questions accordingly.A and B run a km race. If A gives B a start of 50 m, A wins by 14 sec and if A gives B a start of 22 sec, B wins by 20 m. The time taken by A to run a km is?

Correct**Solution:**Let time taken by A to run 1000 m = a and time taken by B to run 1000 m = b. If A gives B a start of 50 m, A wins by 14 sec, distance travelled by A = 1000 and distance travelled by B = (1000-50)=950. Time taken by B to run 950 m – Time taken by A to run 1000 m = 14 sec.

(950/1000 )b−a=14 therefore (95/100)b−a=14—(Equation 1)

If A gives B a start of 22 sec, B wins by 20 m i.e., A starts 22 seconds after B starts from the same starting point. i.e., here B runs for b seconds where A runs for (b-22) seconds => Distance Covered by B in b seconds – Distance Covered by A in (b-22) seconds = 20 =>1000−1000/a×(b−22) =20 therefore 1000/a×(b−22) =980., hence 1000b−22000 =980a, 100b−2200 =98a therefore 50b−1100 =49a therefore 50b−49a=1100—(Equation 2)

(Equation 1)×49 ⇒95×49/100*b−49a =14×49 ⇒46.55b−49a=686—(Equation 3) Now, (Equation 2) – (Equation 3) ⇒3.45b =414 ⇒b=414/3.45=120 seconds. Substituting this value of b in Equation 1⇒95×120/100 −a= 14⇒114−a=14 ⇒a=114−14=100

i.e., The time taken by A to run a km = 100 seconds.Incorrect**Solution:**Let time taken by A to run 1000 m = a and time taken by B to run 1000 m = b. If A gives B a start of 50 m, A wins by 14 sec, distance travelled by A = 1000 and distance travelled by B = (1000-50)=950. Time taken by B to run 950 m – Time taken by A to run 1000 m = 14 sec.

(950/1000 )b−a=14 therefore (95/100)b−a=14—(Equation 1)

If A gives B a start of 22 sec, B wins by 20 m i.e., A starts 22 seconds after B starts from the same starting point. i.e., here B runs for b seconds where A runs for (b-22) seconds => Distance Covered by B in b seconds – Distance Covered by A in (b-22) seconds = 20 =>1000−1000/a×(b−22) =20 therefore 1000/a×(b−22) =980., hence 1000b−22000 =980a, 100b−2200 =98a therefore 50b−1100 =49a therefore 50b−49a=1100—(Equation 2)

(Equation 1)×49 ⇒95×49/100*b−49a =14×49 ⇒46.55b−49a=686—(Equation 3) Now, (Equation 2) – (Equation 3) ⇒3.45b =414 ⇒b=414/3.45=120 seconds. Substituting this value of b in Equation 1⇒95×120/100 −a= 14⇒114−a=14 ⇒a=114−14=100

i.e., The time taken by A to run a km = 100 seconds. - Question 9 of 10
##### 9. Question

1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeIt is decided to construct a 2 metre broad pathway around a rectangular plot on the inside. If the area of the plot is 96 sq.m. and the rate of construction is Rs.50 per square metre, what will be the total cost of construction?

Correct**Solution:**Let length and breadth of the rectangular plot be l and b respectively.

Area of the rectangular plot =96 sq.m.

⇒lb=96

Width of the pathway =2, Length of the remaining area in the plot =(l−4)

Breadth of the remaining area in the plot =(b−4)

Remaining area in the plot =(l−4)(b−4)

Area of the pathway = Area of the rectangular plot – Remaining area in the plot =96−(l−4)(b−4) =96−(lb−4l−4b+16)= 96−(96−4l−4b+16) =4l+4b−16

We do not know the values of l and b and hence area of the pathway cannot be found out. So we cannot determine total cost of construction.Incorrect**Solution:**Let length and breadth of the rectangular plot be l and b respectively.

##### 10. Question

1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeA large tanker can be filled by two pipes A and B in 60 minutes and 40 minutes respectively. How many minutes will it take to fill the tanker from empty state if B is used for half the time and A and B fill it together for the other half?

Correct**Solution:**Part filled by pipe A in 1 minute =1/60, Part filled by pipe B in 1

minute =1/40, Part filled by both pipes A and B in 1 minute

=1/60+1/40=(2+3)/120 =5/120=1/24, Suppose the tanker is filled in x minutes.

Then, to fill the tanker from empty state, B is used for x/2 minutes and A and B

together is used for the rest x/2 minutes.

x/2×1/40+x/2×1/24=1⇒x/2(1/40+1/24)=1 ⇒x/2×8/120 =1 ⇒x/2×1/15=1,

x=15×2=30 minutesIncorrect**Solution:**Part filled by pipe A in 1 minute =1/60, Part filled by pipe B in 1

minute =1/40, Part filled by both pipes A and B in 1 minute

=1/60+1/40=(2+3)/120 =5/120=1/24, Suppose the tanker is filled in x minutes.

Then, to fill the tanker from empty state, B is used for x/2 minutes and A and B

together is used for the rest x/2 minutes.

x/2×1/40+x/2×1/24=1⇒x/2(1/40+1/24)=1 ⇒x/2×8/120 =1 ⇒x/2×1/15=1,

x=15×2=30 minutes
