A train 125 m long passes a man, running at 5 km/hr in the same direction in which the train is going, in 10 seconds. The speed of the train is:

**A. ** 45 km/hr

**B. ** 50 km/hr

**C. ** 54 km/hr

**D. ** 55 km/hr

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Speed of the train relative to man = | 125 | m/sec | |

10 |

= | 25 | m/sec. | |

2 |

= | 25 | x | 18 | km/hr | |

2 | 5 |

= 45 km/hr.

Let the speed of the train be *x* km/hr. Then, relative speed = (*x* - 5) km/hr.

*x* - 5 = 45 *x* = 50 km/hr.

What was the day of the week on 28^{th} May, 2006?

**A. ** Thursday

**B. ** Friday

**C. ** Saturday

**D. ** Sunday

**Answer : ****Option D**

**Explaination / Solution: **

28 May, 2006 = (2005 years + Period from 1.1.2006 to 28.5.2006)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

5 years = (4 ordinary years + 1 leap year) = (4 x 1 + 1 x 2) 6 odd days

Jan. Feb. March April May

(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 28 ) = 148 days

148 days = (21 weeks + 1 day) 1 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 6 + 1) = 7 0 odd day.

Given day is Sunday.

Running at the same constant rate, 6 identical machines can produce a total of 270 bottles per minute. At this rate, how many bottles could 10 such machines produce in 4 minutes?

**A. ** 648

**B. ** 1800

**C. ** 2700

**D. ** 10800

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Let the required number of bottles be *x*.

*More machines, More bottles (Direct Proportion)*

*More minutes, More bottles (Direct Proportion)*

Machines | 6 | : | 10 | :: 270 : x | |

Time (in minutes) | 1 | : | 4 |

6 x 1 x *x* = 10 x 4 x 270

x = | (10 x 4 x 270) |

(6) |

*x* = 1800.

A man has Rs. 480 in the denominations of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes and ten-rupee notes. The number of notes of each denomination is equal. What is the total number of notes that he has ?

**A. ** 45

**B. ** 60

**C. ** 75

**D. ** 90

**Answer : ****Option D**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Let number of notes of each denomination be *x*.

Then *x* + 5*x* + 10*x* = 480

16*x* = 480

*x* = 30.

Hence, total number of notes = 3*x* = 90.
