Question 5


A survey of 450 students about their subject of interest results in the following outcome.

  • 150 students are interested in maths

  • 200 students are interested in physics

  • 175 students are interested in chemistry

  • 50 students are interested in maths and physics

  • 60 students are interested in physics and chemistry

  • 40 students are interested in maths and chemistry

  • 30 students are interested in maths, chemistry and physics


The remaining students are interested in humanities. The students interested in humanities is:


  1. 10

  2. 45

  3. 30

  4. 40


Question 6


Given below are 2 statements and 4 conclusions drawn based on the statements:

Statement 1: Some soaps are clean

Statement 2: All clear objects are wet

Conclusion 1: Some clear objects are soaps.

Conclusion 2:No clear object is a soap

Conclusion 3:Some wet objects are soaps.

Conclusion 4:All wets objects are soaps.


Which is logically inferred?


  1. Either conclusion 3 or 4 is correct

  2. Either conclusion 1 or 2 is correct

  3. Only conclusion 1 is correct

  4. Only conclusions 1 and 3 are correct




Question 7


In the last few years, several new shopping malls were opened in the city. The total number of visitors to the malls is impressive. However, the total revenue generated through sales in the shops in these malls is generally low.


Which of the following statements is logically inferred?


  1. Fewer people are visiting the malls but spending more.

  2. Fewer people are visiting the malls and not spending enough.

  3. More people are visiting the malls and spending more.

  4. More people are visiting the malls but not spending enough.


Question 8


Consider the following equations of straight lines:

L1: 2x-3y =5

L2: 3x+2y =8

L3: 4x-6y =5

L4: 6x-9y =6


Which is correct?

  1. L2 is parallel to L4 and L2 is perpendicular to L1

  2. L1 is parallel to L2 and L1 is perpendicular to L3

  3. L3 is parallel to L4 and L3 is perpendicular to L2

  4. L4 is parallel to L3 and L4 is perpendicular to L2


L1: y = (2/3)x - 5/3

L2: y = -(3/2)x + 8/3

L3: y = (4/6)x - 5/6

L4: y = (6/9)x - 6/3


Slopes of L3 and L4 are the same thus they are parallel

The product of slopes of L1 and L2 is -1 thus they are perpendicular


Question 9


If p:q = 1:2, q:r = 4:3, r:s = 4:5, and u is 50% more than s. p:u = ?


  1. 2:15

  2. 16:45

  3. 1:5

  4. 4:25


p:q = 1:2 = 2:4 and q:r = 4:3 so p:q:r = 2:4:3

r:s = 4:5 = 12:15 and p:q:r = 2:4:3 = 8:16:12 so p:q:r:s = 8:16:12:15

u:s = 1.5:1 = 3:2, s:u = 2:3 = 30:45 and p:q:r:s = 8:16:12:15 = 16:32:24:30

Then p:q:r:s:u = 16:32:24:30:45


Thus, p:u = 16:45


Question 10


P invested 5000/month for 6 months/yr and Q invested x/month for 8 months/yr for a partnership business. The profit is shared in proportion in the total investment made in that year. If at the end of the investment year, Q receives 4/9 of total profit, what is x:


  1. 8437

  2. 3000

  3. 2500

  4. 4687


P’s profit = (1 - 4/9) of total profit = 5/9 total profit

P’s profit/Q’s profit = 5/4

(P’s investment x 6months/yr) / (Q’s investment x 8months/yr) = 5/4

(5000 x 6) / (‘x’.8) = 5/4

x = 3000


Question 11


x:y:z = ½ : ⅓ : ¼

What is (x+z-y)/y ?


  1. 1.25

  2. 0.75

  3. 3.25

  4. 2.25


Multiplying by 12, x:y:z = 6:4:3

(x+z-y)/y = (6+3-4)/4 = 5/4 = 1.25
