Answer : Option C
Explaination / Solution:
No Explaination.

Q2. If a and b are rational numbers and , then a : b is equal to
Answer : Option B
Explaination / Solution:

(a + b√3) = [1 / (2 - √3)]
= [(2 + √3) / (2 - √3) (2 + √3)]……..(multiplying numerator and denominator by conjugate of denominator)
= [(2 + √3) / {(2)2 – (√3)2}] …………(x – y) (x + y) = (x2 – y2
= [ (2 + √3) / (4 – 3) ]
= ( 2 + √3)
Ã (a + b√3) = ( 2 + 1√3)
Ã a = 2, and b = 1
Ã a:b = 2:1

How many employees working in neurology know only either English or Hindi?
Answer : Option D
Explaination / Solution:

Total employees = 200

NEUROLOGY

CANCER CENTER

Employees working in neurology know only English = 8 + 8 = 16
Employees working in neurology know only Hindi = 5 + 4 = 9
∴Employees working in neurology know only either English or Hindi = 16 + 9 = 25

Q5. Direction: What should come in place of the question mark (?) in the following number series?

400, 240, 144, 86.4, 51.84, 31.104, ?
Answer : Option D
Explaination / Solution:

18.6624
400 × 0.6 = 240
240 × 0.6 = 144
144 × 0.6 = 86.4
86.4 × 0.6 = 51.84
51.84 × 0.6 = 31.104
31.104 × 0.6 = 18.6624

Q6. When you reverse the digits of the number 13, the number increases by 18. How many other two digit numbers increase by 18 when their digits are reversed?
Answer : Option C
Explaination / Solution:

Let the number be (10x + y), so when the digits of number are reversed the number becomes (10y + x).

According the question, (10y + x) – (10x + y) = 18

⇒ 9 (y – x) = 18           ⇒y – x = 2

So, the possible pairs of (x, y) are

(1, 3), (2, 4), (3, 5), (4, 6), (5,7), (6, 8) and (7,9).

But we want the number other than 13.

Thus, there are 6 possible numbers, i.e., 24, 35, 46, 57, 68, 79.

So, total number of possible numbers are 6.

Q7.
Directions: Study the following graph carefully and answer the questions given below:

Number of soldiers (in thousands) joining five different forces during six different years

The total soldiers joining BSF in the years 2010, 2012 and 2014 was approximately what per cent of the total number of soldiers joining Navy over all the years together?
Answer : Option A
Explaination / Solution:

Total soldiers joining BSF in the years 2010, 2012 and 2014
= (4.8+5.2+7.2) = 17.2 thousands
Total number of soldiers joining Navy over all the years
= (0.75+1.2+1.8+3.25+4.25+5.2) = 16.45 thousands
Required percentage = (17.2*100)/16.45 = 104.5 = 105%
