1. 1,-1,1,-3,-5,?
1. -7
2. -11
3. 77
4.-77
5. None
Solution:
1*1-2 =-1
-1*3+4 = 1
1*5-8 = -3
-3*7+16 =-5
-5*9-32 = -77
2. 1,?, 15, 51, 131, 281
1. 1
2. 2
3. 3
4. 4
5. 5
Solution:
1+12+13 = 3
3+22+23 = 15
15+32+33 = 51
51+42+43 = 131
131+52+53 = 281
3. Satish rows downstream from P to Q in 3 hours. In return journey his boat is powered by an engine due to which speed of the boat increased by 20% by this he reached the point P in 3 hours. If the speed of the stream is 2 Km/hr then what is the initial speed of the boat?
1. 20 Km/hr
2. 22 Km/hr
3. 24 Km/hr
4. 26 Km/hr
5. Cannot be determined
Solution:
S+R = 1.2S-R
S =20
4. A train with ‘X’ Km/hr speed starts from station A towards station B at 6 AM. After 3 hours another train starts from Station B towards Station A with speed ‘X+15’. If the distance between A and B is 1080 Km and the trains meet at mid way then at what time they meet?
1. 12 Noon
2. 3:00 PM
3. 6:00 PM
4. 9:00 PM
5. Cannot be determined
Solution:
540 = x(t+3)
540 = (x+15)t
solving t =9 hours
5. A train of certain speed crosses a platform of length of 200 m in 24 sec. Some additional bogies were added to the train due to which length of train increased by 400 m and speed of the train reduced by 36 km/hr. Now it crossed a person in 48 sec. Then what is the length of the train?
1. 300 m
2. 400 m
3. 420 m
4. 480 m
5. Cannot be determined
Solution:
s = (x+200)/24
s-10= (x+400)/48
x = 480
6. A takes twice as much time as B and thrice as much time as C to finish a piece of work. Working together they can finish the work in 12 days. B can do the work alone in ?
1. 24 days
2. 36 days
3. 54 days
4. 72 days
5. None
Solution:
1/x+2/x+3/x =1/12
x =72 days
B = 36 days
7. Three pipes A, B and C can fill a cistern in 12 hours. After working at it together for 4 hours, C is closed and A and B can fill the remaining part in 12 hours. The number of hours taken by B alone to fill the cistern is?
1. 12 hours
2. 24 hours
3. 36 hours
4. 54 hours
5. Cannot be determined
Answer : 5. Cannot be determined
Solution:
Based on above solution cannot be determined

1. 5 liters
2. 10 liters
3. 15 liters
4. 20 liters
5. None
Solution:
Milk =70
water =50
50+x/x+120 = 50%
x =20
