Any serious policy discussion about acceptable levels of risk in connection with explosions is not well served
if the participants fail to use the word “explosion” and use the phrase “energetic disassembly” instead. In fact, the
word “explosion” elicits desirable reactions, such as a heightened level of attention, whereas the substitute
phrase does not. Therefore, of the two terms, “explosion” is the one that should be used throughout discussions
of this sort.
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument above depends?
(A) In the kind of discussion at issue, the advantages of desirable reactions to the term “explosion” outweigh the
drawbacks, if any, arising from undesirable reactions to that term.
(B) The phrase “energetic disassembly” has not so far been used as a substitute for the word “explosion” in the
kind of discussion at issue.
(C) In any serious policy discussion, what is said by the participants is more important than how it is put into
words.
(D) The only reason that people would have for using “energetic disassembly” in place of “explosion” is to render
impossible any serious policy discussion concerning explosions.
(E) The phrase “energetic disassembly” is not necessarily out of place in describing a controlled rather than an
accidental explosion

A certain shade of gray paint is obtained by mixing 3 parts of white paint with 5 parts of black paint. If 2

Re: TCS Placement Papers with solutions

As you require the Latest Placement Papers of TCS Exam with solutions so here I am sharing the same with you

1. Ray writes a two digit number. He sees that the number exceeds 4 times the sum of its digits by 3. If the number is increased by 18, the result is the same as the number formed by reversing the digits. Find the number.
a) 35
b) 42
c) 49
d) 57

Solution:
Let the two digit number be xy.
4(x + y) +3 = 10x + y .......(1)
10x + y + 18 = 10 y + x ....(2)
Solving 1st equation we get 2x - y = 1 .....(3)
Solving 2nd equation we get y - x = 2 .....(4)
Solving 3 and 4, we get x = 3 and y = 5

2. a, b, c are non negitive integers such that 28a+30b+31c = 365. a + b + c = ?
a) Greater than 14
b) less than or equal to 11
c) 13
d) 12

Solution:
In a calender,
Number of months having 28 days = 1
Number of months having 30 days = 4
Number of months having 31 days = 7
28 x 1 + 30 x 4 + 31 x 7 = 365
Here, a = 1, b = 4, c = 7.
a+b+c = 12

3. George can do a piece of work in 8 hours. Paul can do the same work in 10 hours, Hari can do the same work in 12 hours. George, paul and hari start the same work at 9 am, while george stops at 11 am, the remaining two complete the work. What time will the work complete?
a) 11.30 am
b) 12 noon
c) 12.30 pm
d) 1 pm

Solution:
Let the total work = 120 units.
As George completes this entire work in 8 hours, his capacity is 15 units /hour
Similarly, the capacity of paul is 12 units / hour
the capacity of Hari is 10 units / hour
All 3 started at 9 am and worked upto 11 am. So total work done upto 11 am = 2 x (15 + 12 + 10) = 74
Remaining work = 120 - 74 = 46
Now this work is to be done by paul and hari. 46 / (12 + 10) = 2 hours (approx)
So work gets completed at 1 pm

4. If x^y denotes x raised to the power y, Find last two digits of (1141^3843) + (1961^4181)
a) 02
b) 82
c) 42
d) 22

Solution:
Remember 1 raised to any power will give 1 as unit digit.
To find the digit in the 10th place, we have to multiply, 10th digit in the base x unit digit in the power.
So the Last two digits of the given expression = 21 + 61 = 82

Re: TCS Placement papers with solutions

The placement paper of TCS with solutions is as follows:

TCS Aptitude-reasoning placement paper:

1) The water from one outlet, flowing at a constant rate, can fill the swimming pool in 9 hours. The water from second outlet, flowing at a constant rate can fill up the same pool in approximately in 5 hours. If both the outlets are used at the same time, approximately what is the number of hours required to fill the pool?

ans: (1/A) + (1/B) = 1/T
So when you solved, and got 14/45, that was equal to 1/T. To find T, you need to take the reciprocal; T = 45/14,
(3.21)
u
2) If 75 % of a class answered the first question on a certain test correctly, 55 percent answered the second question on the test correctly, and 20 percent answered neither of the questions correctly, what percentage answered both correctly?

ans: n(a ^ b) =n(a)+n(b)-n(a v b)
= 0.75+0.55-0.8
= 0.5
(50%)

3) A student's average ( arithmetic mean) test score on 4 tests is 78. What must be the students score on a 5th test for the students average score on the 5th test to be 80?

ans: 4 tests sum=78*4=312
5 tests sum=80*5=400
then 5th test score=400-312=88
(88)

4) Rural households have more purchasing power than do urban households at the same income level, since some of the income urban and suburban households use for food and shelter can be used by the rural households for other needs. Which of the following inferences is best supported by the statement made above?
(A) The average rural household includes more people than does the average urban or suburban household.
(B) Rural households have lower food and housing costs than do either urban or suburban households.
(C) Suburban households generally have more purchasing power than do either rural or urban households.
(D) The median income of urban and suburban households is generally higher than that of rural households.
(E) All three types of households spend more of their income on housing than on all other purchases combined.

ans: B

5) Jose is a student of horticulture in the University of Hose. In a horticultural experiment in his final year, 200 seeds were planted in plot I and 300 were planted in plot II. If 57% of the seeds in plot I germinated and 42% of the seeds in plot II germinated, what percent of the total number of planted seeds germinated?

ans: 200 * 57 % = 114 and 300* 42% = 126.
Total = 240 out of 500.
(48%).

6) A closed cylindrical tank contains 36 pie cubic feet of water and its filled to half its capacity. When the tank is placed upright on its circular base on level ground, the height of water in the tank is 4 feet. When the tank is placed on its side on level ground, what is the height, in feet, of the surface of the water above the ground?

ans: What given Volume = 36
Height = 4ft
Volume = Pi* r2 * h
36 = Pi*r2 * 4
r2 =9
r = 3
So the radius is 3 which means the diameter is 6.

7) The present ratio of students to teachers at a certain school is 30 to 1. If the student enrollment were to increase by 50 students and the number of teachers were to increase by 5, the ratio of the teachers would then be 25 to 1 What is the present number of teachers?

ans: 30/1 = s/t Current student to teacher ratio
s+50/t+5 = 25/1 Future student to teacher ratio
solving the first equation first equation for s gives s = 30t.
Substitute this value of s into the second equation, and solve for t.
s+50/t+5 = 25/1
30t + 50 = 25t + 125 multiply both sides by t+5
5t = 75 simplify by subtraction
t = 15
(15)

8) College T has 1000 students. Of the 200 students majoring in one or more of the sciences,130 are majoring in Chemistry and 150 are majoring in Biology. If at least 30 of the students are not majoring in either Chemistry or Biology, then the number of students majoring in both Chemistry and Biology could be any number from

ans: total=200
neither>=30
chemistry=130
bio=130
maximum common=minimum of the two=130
if neither=30
then common=150+130+30-200=110
range is 110-130

9) Kelly and Chris are moving into a new city. Both of them love books and thus packed several boxes with books. If Chris packed 60% of the total number of boxes, what was the ratio of the number of boxes Kelly packed to the number of boxes Chris packed?

ans: 100-60=40
40:60=2:3

10) A drug that is highly effective in treating many types of infection can, at present, be obtained only from the bark of the ibora, a tree that is quite rare in the wild. It takes the bark of 5,000 trees to make one kilogram of the drug. It follows, therefore, that continued production of the drug must inevitably lead to the ibora's extinction. Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument above?

ans: The ibora can be propagated from cuttings and grown under cultivation.

11) Machine A produces bolts at a uniform rate of 120 every 40 second, and Machine B produces bolts at a uniform rate of 100 every 20 seconds. If the two machines run simultaneously, how many seconds will it take for them to produce a total of 200 bolts?

ans: Machine A produces 120/40 = 3 bolts in 1 seconds and machine B produces 100/20 = 5 bolts in one second.
Hence, both of them will produce 8 bolts per second.
Hence, they wil take 200/8 = 25 seconds to produce 200 bolts.
(25)

12) Wood smoke contains dangerous toxins that cause changes in human cells. Because wood smoke presents such a high health risk, legislation is needed to regulate the use of open-air fires and wood burning stoves

ans: In valleys where wood is used as the primary heating fuel, the concentration of smoke results in poor air quality.

13) Analysing the good returns that Halocircle Insurance Pvt Ltd was giving, Ratika bought a 1-year, Rs 10,000 certificate of deposit that paid interest at an annual rate of 8% compounded semi-annually.What was the total amount of interest paid on this certificate at maturity?

ans: @8%, for half year you get 400/- 10000x 8/100x1/2=400
for the next year there will be interest on your investment of 10000 and also on your accrue interest of Rs.400/-
that means another 400/+ interest on 400/- @8% for half year.=400+ (400x8/100x1/2)
400+400+16=816

14) Juan is a gold medalist in athletics. In the month of May, if Juan takes 11 seconds to run y yards, how many seconds will it take him to run x yards at the same rate?

ans: 11x/y

15) A certain company retirement plan has a rule of 70 provision that allows an employee to retire when the employee's age plus years of employment with the company total at least 70. In what year could a female employee hired in 1986 on her 32nd birthday first be eligible to retire under this provision?

ans: The female employee must gain at least 70 points.
Now she has 32 and every year gives her two more points: one for age and one for additional year of employment, so 32 + 2 * (number of years) = 70
(Number of years) = 19
So, 1986 + 19 = 2005

16) Homeowners aged 40 to 50 are more likely to purchase ice cream and are more likely to purchase it in larger amounts than are members of any other demographic group. The popular belief that teenagers eat more ice-cream than adults must, therefore, be false. The argument is flawed because the author _____

ans: fails to distinguish between purchasing and consuming

17) Andalusia has been promoting the importance of health maintenance. From January 1,1991 to January 1,1993, the number of people enrolled in health maintenance organizations increased by 15 percent. The enrollment on January 1,1993 was 45 million. How many million people(to the nearest million) was enrolled in health maintenance organizations on January 1,1991?

ans: let there are 'x' population at jan1,1991
15% of x = 15/100*(x)
(x)+[15/100*(x)]=45 /* as there is 15% increase from 1991 to 1993*/
x=39.13

18) What is the lowest possible integer that is divisible by each of the integers 1 through 7, inclusive?

ans: L.C.M of(1,2,3,4,5,6,7)=2*2*3*5*7=420

19) If the area of a square region having sides of length 6 cms is equal to the area of a rectangular region having width 2.5 cms, then the length of the rectangle, in cms, is

ans: Area of a Square
s x s
6 x 6 = 36
Area of a Rectangle
lw
?(2.5)
=36 as it is equal to the area of a square
36/2.5 = 14.4 cm

20) A tank contains 10,000 gallons of a solution that is 5 percent sodium chloride by volume. If 2500 gallons of water evaporate from the tank, the remaining solution will be approximately what percentage of sodium chloride?

ans: Original =10,000 ----> sodium chloride = 5% ie 500
New = 10,000-2,500 = 7500.
New % = (500/7500) * 100
= 6.67%

21) After loading a dock, each worker on the night crew loaded 3/4 as many boxes as each worker on the day of the crew. If the night crew has 4/5 as many workers as the day crew, what fraction of all the boxes loaded by two crews did the day crew load?

ans: Number of workers
Day shift: 5 workers (this is an easy number to find 4/5 of)
Night shift: 4 workers (4/5 of 5 = 4)
Day shift: 4 boxes per worker
Night shift: 3 boxes per worker (3/4 of 4 = 3)
Day shift: 5 workers times 4 boxes per worker = 20 boxes
Night shift: 4 workers times 3 boxes per worker = 12 boxes
Combined total boxes for both shifts = 20 + 12 = 32
Of the 32 boxes, the day shift loaded 20 of them.
20/32 = 5/8

22) A bakery opened yesterday with its daily supply of 40 dozen rolls. Half of the rolls were sold by noon and 80 % of the remaining rolls were sold between noon and closing time. How many dozen rolls had not been sold when the bakery closed yesterday?

ans: 4 rolls were not sold.............half of them were sold by noon.......so 20 rolls remain....and then 20% were not sold,, so 20% of the 20 rolls is 4 then it is the answer

23) If n=4p, where p is a prime number greater than 2, how many different positive even divisors does n have including n?

ans: 4

24) A dealer originally bought 100 identical batteries at a total cost of q rupees. If each battery was sold at 50 percent above the original cost per battery, then, in terms of q, for how many rupees was each battery sold?

ans: bought for q/100 dollars per battery
each battery sold with profit 50% is
q/100 + q/100*50/100
=q/100+q/200
=3q/200

25) The price of lunch for 15 people was 207 pounds, including a 15 percent gratuity of service. What was the average price per person, EXCLUDING the gratuity?

ans: Let the net price excluding the gratuity of service = x pounds
Then, total price including 15% gratuity of service = x + 0.15 x = 1.15 x pounds
So, 1.15 x = 207 pounds
==> x = 207 / 1.15 = 180 pounds
Net price of lunch for each person = 180 / 15 = 12 pounds

26) Of the following, which is the closest approximation of (50.2*0.49)/199.8 ?

ans: For approximation
(50.2*0.49)/199.8 can be taken as
50*0.5/200 = 25/200 = 1/8 = 0.125

27) How many prime numbers between 1 and 100 are factors of 7150?

ans: 7,150 = 2 * 5 * 5 * 11 * 13
so there are 4 distinct prime numbers that are below 100

28) Guitar Strings often go dead - become less responsive and bright in tone - after a few weeks of intense use. A researcher whose son is a classical guitarist hypothesized that dirt and oil, rather than changes in the material properties of the string, were responsible. Which of the following investigations is most likely to yield significant information that would help evaluate the researcher's hypothesis?

ans: Determining whether smearing various substances on new guitar strings causes them to go dead

29) Red blood cells in which the malarial-fever parasite resides are eliminated from a person's body after 120 days. Because the parasite cannot travel to a new generation of red blood cells, any fever that develops in a person more than 120 days after that person has moved to a malaria free region is not due to malarial parasite. Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the conclusion above?

ans: In some cases, the parasite that causes malarial fever travels to cells of the spleen, which are less frequently eliminated from a person’s body than are red blood cells.

30) Among a group of 2500 people, 35 percent invest in municipal bonds, 18 percent invest in oil stocks, and 7 percent invest in both municipal bonds and oil stocks. If 1 person is to be randomly selected from 2500 people, what is the probability that the person selected will be one who invests in municipal bonds but not in oil stocks

ans: 7/25

31) When a polygraph test is judged inconclusive, this is no reflection on the examinee. Rather, such a judgment means that the test has failed to show whether the examinee was truthful or untruthful. Nevertheless, employers will sometime refuse to hire a job applicant because of an inconclusive polygraph test result. Which of the following conclusions can most properly be drawn from the information above?

ans: An inconclusive polygraph test result is sometimes unfairly held against the examinee

33 A dog taken four leaps for every five leaps of hare but three leaps of the dog is equal to four leaps of the hare. Compare speed?
Let the distance covered by dog in 1 leap is x and hare covered 1 leap is y.
then, 3x = 4y
=> x =(4/3) y
=> 4x =(16/3) y

Then, The ratio of speeds of dog and hare = Ratio of distances covered by them in the same time
= 4x : 5y
= (16/3)y : 5y
=(16/3) : 5
= 16:15 Ans...=16:15

34 There are two boxes,one containing 39 red balls & the other containing 26 green balls.you are allowed to move the balls b/w the boxes so that when you choose a box random & a ball at random from the chosen box,the probability of getting a red ball is maximized.this maximum probability is
a)60 b)50 c)80 d)30

the probability of getting a red ball should be maximized so we will keep 1 red ball in the first box and transfer remaining 38 red balls to other box which has green. The reason for doing this only this combination will make the probability of getting red ball is maximum (i.e) 1.
In the question its mentioned that first we have to choose a box at random.
So 2 boxes are there, probability of selecting a bag is 1/2

35 A number has exactly 3 prime factors, 125 factors of this number are perfect squares and 27 factors of this number are perfect cubes. overall how many factors does the number have???
Answer for this question is 729
The explanation goes like this
Let a,b,c be three prime no.
since the no. of perfect square as a factor is 125
which can only be if every prime no. has power in the multiple of 2 including zeros(bcoz any no. to the power of zero is a perfect square)
so power must be 0,2,4,6,8
thereby 5*5*5=125
Since no. of cube as a factor is 27
therefore power in the prime no. will be in the multiple of 3
so power are 0,3,6
hence the no. N=a^8*b^8*c^8
hence total no. of factor is (8+1)(8+1)(8+1)=729

if p(x)=ax^4+bx^3+cx^2+dx+e has roots at x=1,2,3,4 & p(0)=48.what is p(5)
if 1 is a root then x-1 is a factor of p(x)
similarly x-2 is a factor,x-3 ,x-4 are factors
but p(x) is 4th degree polynomial therefore it can be in the form
p(x) = Q(x-1)(x-2)(x-3)(x-4) , where Q is a constant
but given p(0) =48
therefore 24 Q =48
Q=2
p(x) =2(x-1)(x-2)(x-3)(x-4)
p(5)= 2*4*3*2*1 = 48

2 Messrs. Siva Constructions, leading agents in Chennai prepared models of their lands in the shape of a rectangle and triangle. They made models having same area. The length and width of rectangle model are 24 inches and 8 inches respectively. The base of the triangle model is 16 inches. What is the altitude of triangle model from the base to the top?

a) 24 inches b) 8 inches c) 20 inches d) 32 inches
Area of a rectangle= Area of the Triangle
So, l*b=1/2(b*h)
24*8=1/2(16*8)
therefore 24inches will be the answer

4 Tim and Elan are 90 km from each other, they start to move each other simultaneously, Tim at speed 10 and Elan 5kmph, if every hour they double their speed what is the distance that Tim will pass until he meet Elan?
Tim and Elan will cover the distance in ratio of 2: 1 in same time.
so out of 90 kms, Tim will travel 60 kms and Elan will travel 30 mtrs.
he length and breadth of a field is 300x400ft,if there are 3 ants on average per square inch of field,find the approximate number of ants in field
as 300 ft=3600 inch and 400 ft=4800 inch.then area in sqr inch=17280000
1 sqr inch need 3 ant hence 17280000 sqr inch need 3*17280000 ants.
.diagonal of a square is double the side of an equilateral triangle find the ratio of area of triangle to area of square
let sides of equilateral triangle be 'a', therefore area= √3/4 * a^2

now, diagonal of square is 2a therefore sides of square will be √2*a
and area of square = 2 a^2

hence, ratio = (√3/4* a^2)/(2* a^2)

5 Given a collection of points P in the plane, a 1-set is a point in P that can be separated from the rest by a line, .i.e the point lies on one side of the line while the others lie on the other side.
The number of 1-sets of P is denoted by n1(P). The minimum value of n1(P) over all configurations P of 5 points in the plane in general position(.i.e no three points in P lie on a line) is
a)3 b)5 c) 2 d)1

The meaning of this question is little complicated. In easy language the question should be:

6 There are some points in the plane. We have to make a separation between these points by forming a line in such a way that one point could be separate from the others. No 3 points are in a line. Maximum no of methods for plotting the line and minimum no of methods for plotting the line will be (arrangement of points is your choice)

For Maximize: The number of methods, Points should be drawn in the circumference of the CIRCLE So answer would be the number of total point in the plane.

For minimize: The number of methods we should draw 3 points in a TRIANGLE and all other point inside this triangle in such a way that no 3 points could be in a line.

If it will be allowed to draw the points in a line then minimum possibilities will be 2 only, because if we take all points in a line then you can separate only the corner points from the others.

For example
If we have 10 points then maximum possibilities = 10
and minimum = 3

similarly for 5 points
Max = 5, Min = 3

for 19
max= 19 Min = 3

In a sequence of integers, A(n)=A(n-1)-A(n-2),where A(n) is the nth term in the sequence, n is an integer and n>=3, A(1)=1,A(2)=1. Calculate S(1000), where S(1000) is the sum of first 1000 terms.
check it now
A(1)=1,A(2)=1.
A(3)=A(2)-A(1) acc to the given formula A(n)=A(n-1)-A(n-2)
A(3)=1-1=0.
similarliy,A(4)=A(3)-A(2)=0-1=-1.
A(5)=A(4)-A(3)=-1-0=-1.
A(6)=A(5)-A(4)=-1-(-1)=0.
after 6th term seq is repeating like...1,1,0,-1,-1,0...after every 6 terms
so the sum of these 6 terms are 1+1+0+(-1)+(-1)+0=0.
now we have to find sum of 1000 terms...
sum of first 600 terms is 0...(as consider 1,1,0,-1,-1,0 as one sequence,now consider 166 seq i.e 166*6=996 terms)
so the sum of first 996 terms is 0...after that 4 terms come i.e 1,1,0,-1
so the sum of last 4 terms = 1+1+0+(-1)=1.

13 n! has 13 zeros than wat is the higest and lowest value of n??
Here we have to consider only the 5,10,15,20.... these terms..
so form (5,10,15,20,30,35,40,45,55 ) we got 1 no of zero from each.
Now from 25(5*5) and 50(5*5*2) we got 2 no of zeroes form each.
so upto 55 factorial we get (9+4)= 13 zeroes.
so 55! is the smallest value and 59! is the largest value.

The sequence {A(n)} is defined by A(1)=2 and A(n+1)=A(n)+2n. What is the value of A(100).
The sequence {A(n)} is defined by A(1)=2 and A(n+1)=A(n)+2n.
The value of A(100)=A(99+1)=A(99)+2*99
=A(98)+2*98+2*99
=A(97)+2*97+2*98+2*99

A(100)=A(1)+2*1+2*2+2*3+......+2*98+2*99
= 2+(2*1+2*2+2*3+......+2*98+2*99)
= 2+2(1+2+3+.....+98+99)
= 2+2(sum of the first 99 natural numbers)
= 2+2(99*100/2) [sum of the first n natural numbers={n*(n+1)/2}]
= 2+9900
= 9902
14 A,B COMMON TO ALL THREE. THEN ATLEAST 1 ELEMNT COMMON TO 2 IE X1,X2,X2,X3,X3,X1. FINDMINIMUM ELEMENTS IN EACH GROUP. ANSWER IS 4.

15 Directions for Q. 1 to Q. 5: Refer the data:
J, K, L, M and N collected stamps. They collected a total of 100 stamps. None of them collected less than 10.
No two among them collected the same number.
(i) 3 collected the same number as K and M together.
(ii) L collected 3 more than the cube of an integer
(iii) The no. collected by J was the square of an integer.
(iv) Total no. collected by K was either the square or cube of an integer.

1. The no. collected by J was:
(1) 27 (2) 49 (3) 36 (4) 64

2. The no. collected by K was:
(1) 16 (2) 27 (3) 25 (4) 36

3. The difference of numbers collected by L & M was:
(1) 3 (2) 2 (3) 5 (4) 9

in the question the number collected by J should be cube of the integer and l should collect 3 more than square of integer.
J+L+N=K+M
so the sum of J+L+N=K+M=50
l=3^2+3=12
so J=3^3=27
n=50-27-12=11
now k is either square or cube so possibilty are 36 or 16.and m=14 or 34
so j=27
now value for k can come after solving question 3
m-l=14-12=2 or 34-12=22
so there is 2 in option so value of m is 14 and k=36.

16 Bhanu spends 30% of his income on petrol on scooter. ? of the remaining on house rent and the balance on food. If he spends Rs.300 on petrol then what is the expenditure on house rent?

let the income x,so in petrol he spends 3x/10 rs,remaining x-3x/10=7x/10 on house rent and balance on.now 3x/10=300,so x=1000,on house rent he spends rs 700-balane..
Let exp(m,n) = m to the power n. If exp(10, m) = n exp(2, 2) where to and n are integers then n = exp(m,n) = m to the power n= m^n

exp(10, m) = n exp(2, 2) = n*2^2 = 4*n
10^m =4*n
when m=2,
n=25
so min integer values of m and n are 2 and 25 respectively.
A Grocer bought 24 kg coffee beans at price X per kg. After a while one third of stock got spoiled so he sold the rest for \$200 per kg and made a total profit of twice the cost. What must be the price of X?
A. \$33 1/3 B. 66 2/3 C.44 4/9 D.50 1/3
ns: C. 44 4/9

cost price= 24*X \$,
spoiled= 24*1/3=8 kg, now total amount= (24-8)=16 kg
selling price= 16*200\$ =3200\$
profit= (3200-24*X)
profit=2* cost , (3200-24*X)= 2*24*X, x=44 4/9

17 Leena cuts small cubes of 3 cubic cm each.She joined it to make a cuboid of length 10 cm,width 3cm, and depth 3 cm.How many more cubes does she need to make a perfect cube?
a)910 b)250 c)750 d)650
ns is a)910. To make cube we need 10*10*10=1000. now we have only 10*3*3=90.so the more cube we need are 1000-90=910.

18 Q:- A boy wants to make cuboids of dimension 5m,6m & 7m from small cubes of .03m^3.Later he realized that he can make some cuboids by making it hollow.Then it takes some cubes less.What is the number of cubes to be removed
a)2000 b)5000 c)3000 d)7000
Volume of the cuboid= 5*6*7
No of cubes needed = (5*6*7)/0.03 = 7000
Volume of hollow cube= (5-2)(6-2)(7-2)
No of cubes needed = (5-2)(6-2)(7-2)/0.03 = (3*4*5)/0.03= 2000
So, number of cubes to be removed = 7000 - 2000 = 5000

19 An empty tankbe filled with aninlet pipe 'A' in 42 minutes. after 12 minutes an outlet pipe 'B' is opened which can empty the tank in 30 minutes. After 6 minutes another inlet pipe 'C' opened into the same tank, which can fill the tank in 35 minutes and the tank is filled find the time taken to fill the tank?
he milk and water in two vessels A and B are in the ratio 4 : 3 and 2: 3 respectively. In what ratio, the liquids in both the vessels be mixed to obtain a new mixture in vessel C containing half milk and half water?
let c.p. of 1liter milk is 1RS.
now milk in 1st mixer is 4/7 and in 2nd mixure is 2/5.
milk in finle mixer is 1/2
now from mixure formula..
4/7 2/5
1/2
1/10 1/14
so ratio is 14/10 =7/5
20 How many kgs. of wheat costing Rs. 8 per kg must be mixed with 86 kg of rice costing Rs. 6.40 per kg so that 20% gain may be obtained by Belling the mixture at Rs. 7.20 per kg ?
Ex. 4. .How many kgs. of wheat costing Rs. 8 per kg must be mixed with 86 kg of rice costing Rs. 6.40 per kg so that 20% gain may be obtained by Belling the mixture at Rs. 7.20 per kg ?

Sol. S.P. of 1 kg mixture = Rs. 7.20,Gain = 20%.
? C.P. of 1 kg mixture = Rs.[(100/120)*7.20]=Rs. 6.
By the rule of alligation, we have:
C_P. of 1 kg wheat of 1st kind C.P. of 1 kg wheat of 2nd kind
(800p) . (540 p)
Mean price
( 600 p)
60 200
Wheat of 1st kind: Wheat of 2nd kind = 60 : 200 = 3 : 10.
Let x kg of wheat of 1st kind be mixed with 36 kg of wheat of 2nd kind.
Then, 3 : 10 = x : 36 or lOx = 3 * 36 or x = 10.8 kg.

21 In what ratio must water be mixed with milk to gain 20 % by selling the mixture at cost price?
let the sp op 1 l mix is =re 1
cp =(100/120)*1=5/6
cp of one let. water =0
so ratio=1-(5/6)/(5/6)-0=1/5
so required ratio =1:5

Re: Solved Placement Papers for TCS

Here are Tata Consultancy Services placement solved questions:

1) If log 0.317=0.3332 and log 0.318=0.3364 then find log 0.319 ?
Sol) log 0.317=0.3332 and log 0.318=0.3364, then
log 0.319=log0.318+(log0.318-log0.317) = 0.3396

2) A box of 150 packets consists of 1kg packets and 2kg packets. Total weight of box is 264kg. How many 2kg packets are there ?
Sol) x= 2 kg Packs
y= 1 kg packs
x + y = 150 .......... Eqn 1
2x + y = 264 .......... Eqn 2
Solve the Simultaneous equation; x = 114
so, y = 36
ANS : Number of 2 kg Packs = 114.

3) My flight takes of at 2am from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place with coordinates 36N70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?
6:00 am b) 6:40am c) 7:40 d) 7:00 e) 8:00
Sol) The destination place is 80 degree west to the starting place. Hence the time difference between these two places is 5 hour 20 min. (=24hr*80/360).
When the flight landed, the time at the starting place is 12 noon (2 AM + 10 hours).
Hence, the time at the destination place is 12 noon - 5:20 hours = 6: 40 AM

4) A plane moves from 9°N40°E to 9°N40°W. If the plane starts at 10 am and takes 8 hours to reach the destination, find the local arrival time ?
Sol) Since it is moving from east to west longitide we need to add both
ie,40+40=80
multiply the ans by 4
=>80*4=320min
convert this min to hours ie, 5hrs 33min
It takes 8hrs totally . So 8-5hr 30 min=2hr 30min
So the ans is 10am+2hr 30 min
=>ans is 12:30 it will reach

5) The size of the bucket is N kb. The bucket fills at the rate of 0.1 kb per millisecond. A programmer sends a program to receiver. There it waits for 10 milliseconds. And response will be back to programmer in 20 milliseconds. How much time the program takes to get a response back to the programmer, after it is sent? Please tell me the answer with explanation. Very urgent.
Sol) see it doesn't matter that wat the time is being taken to fill the bucket.after reaching program it waits there for 10ms and back to the programmer in 20 ms.then total time to get the response is 20ms +10 ms=30ms...it's so simple

6) A file is transferred from one location to another in 'buckets'. The size of the bucket is 10 kilobytes. Each bucket gets filled at the rate of 0.0001 kilobytes per millisecond. The transmission time from sender to receiver is 10 milliseconds per bucket. After the receipt of the bucket the receiver sends an acknowledgement that reaches sender in 100 milliseconds. Assuming no error during transmission, write a formula to calculate the time taken in seconds to successfully complete the transfer of a file of size N kilobytes.
(n/1000)*(n/10)*10+(n/100)....as i hv calculated...~~!not 100% sure

7) A fisherman's day is rated as good if he catches 9 fishes, fair if 7 fishes and bad if 5 fishes. He catches 53 fishes in a week n had all good, fair n bad days in the week. So how many good, fair n bad days did the fisher man had in the week
Ans:4 good, 1 fair n 2 bad days
Sol) Go to river catch fish
4*9=36
7*1=7
2*5=10
36+7+10=53...
take what is given 53
good days means --- 9 fishes so 53/9=4(remainder=17) if u assume 5 then there is no chance for bad days.
fair days means ----- 7 fishes so remaining 17 --- 17/7=1(remainder=10) if u assume 2 then there is no chance for bad days.
bad days means -------5 fishes so remaining 10---10/5=2days.
Ans: 4 good, 1 fair, 2bad. ==== total 7 days.

x+y+z=7--------- eq1
9*x+7*y+5*z=53 -------eq2
multiply eq 1 by 9,
9*x+9*y+9*z=35 -------------eq3
from eq2 and eq3
2*y+4*z=10-----eq4
since all x,y and z are integer i sud put a integer value of y such that z sud be integer in eq 4 .....and ther will be two value y=1 or 3 then z = 2 or 1 from eq 4

for first y=1,z=2 then from eq1 x= 4
so 9*4+1*7+2*5=53.... satisfied
now for second y=3 z=1 then from eq1 x=3
so 9*3+3*7+1*5=53 ......satisfied
so finally there are two solution of this question
(x,y,z)=(4,1,2) and (3,3,1)...

8) Y catches 5 times more fishes than X. If total number of fishes caught by X and Y is 42, then number of fishes caught by X?
Sol) Let no. of fish x catches=p
no. caught by y =r
r=5p.
r+p=42
then p=7,r=35

9) Three companies are working independently and receiving the savings 20%, 30%, 40%. If the companies work combinely, what will be their net savings?
suppose total income is 100
so amount x is getting is 80
y is 70
z =60
total=210

but total money is 300
300-210=90
so they are getting 90 rs less
90 is 30% of 300 so they r getting 30% discount

10) The ratio of incomes of C and D is 3:4.the ratio of their expenditures is 4:5. Find the ratio of their savings if the savings of C is one fourths of his income?
Sol) incomes:3:4
expenditures:4:5
3x-4y=1/4(3x)
12x-16y=3x
9x=16y
y=9x/16
(3x-4(9x/16))/((4x-5(9x/16)))
ans:12/19

11) If G(0) = -1 G(1)= 1 and G(N)=G(N-1) - G(N-2) then what is the value of G(6)?
ans: -1
bcoz g(2)=g(1)-g(0)=1+1=2
g(3)=1
g(4)=-1
g(5)=-2
g(6)=-1

12) If A can copy 50 pages in 10 hours and A and B together can copy 70 pages in 10 hours, how much time does B takes to copy 26 pages?
Sol) A can copy 50 pages in 10 hrs.
A can copy 5 pages in 1hr.(50/10)
now A & B can copy 70 pages in 10hrs.
thus, B can copy 90 pages in 10 hrs.[eqn. is (50+x)/2=70, where x--> no. of pages B can copy in 10 hrs.]
so, B can copy 9 pages in 1hr.
therefore, to copy 26 pages B will need almost 3hrs.
since in 3hrs B can copy 27 pages.

13) what's the answer for that :
A, B and C are 8 bit no's. They are as follows:
A -> 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 1
B -> 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1
C -> 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 ( - =minus, u=union)
Find ((A - C) u B) =?

To find A-C, We will find 2's compliment of C and them add it with A,
That will give us (A-C)
2's compliment of C=1's compliment of C+1
=11000101+1=11000110
A-C=11000101+11000110
=10001001
Now (A-C) U B is .OR. logic operation on (A-C) and B
10001001 .OR . 00110011
Whose decimal equivalent is 187.

14) One circular array is given(means memory allocation tales place in circular fashion) diamension(9X7) and sarting add. is 3000, What is the address of (2,3)........
Sol) it's a 9x7 int array so it reqiure a 126 bytes for storing.b'ze integer value need 2 byes of memory allocation. and starting add is 3000
so starting add of 2x3 will be 3012.

15) In a two-dimensional array, X (9, 7), with each element occupying 4 bytes of memory, with the address of the first element X (1, 1) is 3000, find the address of X (8, 5).
Sol) initial x (1,1) = 3000 u hav to find from x(8,1)so u have x(1,1),x(1,2) ... x(7,7) = so u have totally 7 * 7 = 49 elementsu need to find for x(8,5) ? here we have 5 elements each element have 4 bytes : (49 + 5 -1) * 4 = 212 -----( -1 is to deduct the 1 element ) 3000 + 212 = 3212

16) Which of the following is power of 3 a) 2345 b) 9875 c) 6504 d) 9833

17) The size of a program is N. And the memory occupied by the program is given by M = square root of 100N. If the size of the program is increased by 1% then how much memory now occupied ?
Sol) M=sqrt(100N)
N is increased by 1%
therefore new value of N=N + (N/100)
=101N/100
M=sqrt(100 * (101N/100) )
Hence, we get M=sqrt(101 * N)

18)

2.OXYGEN----------- WATER ------- B. A Type of
3.SHOP STAFF------- FITTERS------ C. NOT A TYPE OF
4. BUG -------------REPTILE------ D. A SUPERSET OF
1)B 2)A 3)D 4)C

19) A bus started from bustand at 8.00a m and after 30 min staying at destination, it returned back to the bustand. the destination is 27 miles from the bustand. the speed of the bus 50 percent fast speed. at what time it returns to the bustand
this is the step by step solution:
a bus cover 27 mile with 18 mph in =27/18= 1 hour 30 min. and it wait at stand =30 min.
after this speed of return increase by 50% so 50%of 18 mph=9mph
Total speed of returnig=18+9=27
Then in return it take 27/27=1 hour
then total time in joureny=1+1:30+00:30 =3 hour
so it will come at 8+3 hour=11 a.m.
So Ans==11 a.m

20) In two dimensional array X(7,9) each element occupies 2 bytes of memory.If the address of first element X(1,1)is 1258 then what will be the address of the element X(5,8) ?
Sol) Here, the address of first element x[1][1] is 1258 and also 2 byte of memory is given. now, we have to solve the address of element x[5][8], therefore, 1258+ 5*8*2 = 1258+80 = 1338 so the answer is 1338.

21) The temperature at Mumbai is given by the function: -t2/6+4t+12 where t is the elapsed time since midnight. What is the percentage rise (or fall) in temperature between 5.00PM and 8.00PM?

22) Low temperature at the night in a city is 1/3 more than 1/2 high as higher temperature in a day. Sum of the low temperature and highest temp. is 100 degrees. Then what is the low temp?
Sol) Let highest temp be x
so low temp=1/3 of x of 1/2 of x plus x/2 i.e. x/6+x/2
total temp=x+x/6+x/2=100
therefore, x=60
Lowest temp is 40

23) In Madras, temperature at noon varies according to -t^2/2 + 8t + 3, where t is elapsed time. Find how much temperature more or less in 4pm to 9pm. Ans. At 9pm 7.5 more
Sol) In equestion first put t=9,
we will get 34.5...........................(1)
now put t=4,
we will get 27..............................(2)
so ans=34.5-27
=7.5

24) A person had to multiply two numbers. Instead of multiplying by 35, he multiplied by 53 and the product went up by 540. What was the raised product?
a) 780 b) 1040 c) 1590 d) 1720
Sol) x*53-x*35=540=> x=30 therefore, 53*30=1590 Ans

25) How many positive integer solutions does the equation 2x+3y = 100 have?
a) 50 b) 33 c) 16 d) 35
Sol) There is a simple way to answer this kind of Q's given 2x+3y=100, take l.c.m of 'x' coeff and 'y' coeff i.e. l.c.m of 2,3 ==6then divide 100 with 6 , which turns out 16 hence answer is 16short cut formula--- constant / (l.cm of x coeff and y coeff)

26) The total expense of a boarding house are partly fixed and partly variable with the number of boarders. The charge is Rs.70 per head when there are 25 boarders and Rs.60 when there are 50 boarders. Find the charge per head when there are 100 boarders.
a) 65 b) 55 c) 50 d) 45
Sol)
Let a = fixed cost and k = variable cost and n = number of boarders
total cost when 25 boarders c = 25*70 = 1750 i.e. 1750 = a + 25k
total cost when 50 boarders c = 50*60 = 3000 i.e. 3000 = a + 50k
solving above 2 eqns, 3000-1750 = 25k i.e. 1250 = 25k i.e. k = 50
therefore, substituting this value of k in either of above 2 eqns we get
a = 500 (a = 3000-50*50 = 500 or a = 1750 - 25*50 = 500)
so total cost when 100 boarders = c = a + 100k = 500 + 100*50 = 5500
so cost per head = 5500/100 = 55

27) Amal bought 5 pens, 7 pencils and 4 erasers. Rajan bought 6 pens, 8 erasers and 14 pencils for an amount which was half more than what Amal had paid. What % of the total amount paid by Amal was paid for pens?
a) 37.5% b) 62.5% c) 50% d) None of these
Sol)
Let, 5 pens + 7 pencils + 4 erasers = x rupees
so 10 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erasers = 2*x rupees
also mentioned, 6 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erarsers = 1.5*x rupees
so (10-6) = 4 pens = (2-1.5)x rupees
so 4 pens = 0.5x rupees => 8 pens = x rupees
so 5 pens = 5x/8 rupees = 5/8 of total (note x rupees is total amt paid byamal)
i.e 5/8 = 500/8% = 62.5% is the answer

28) I lost Rs.68 in two races. My second race loss is Rs.6 more than the first race. My friend lost Rs.4 more than me in the second race. What is the amount lost by my friend in the second race?
Sol)
x + x+6 = rs 68
2x + 6 = 68
2x = 68-6
2x = 62
x=31
x is the amt lost in I race

53) There is a six digit code. Its first two digits, multiplied by 3 gives all ones. And the next two digits multiplied by 6 give all twos. Remaining two digits multiplied by 9 gives all threes. Then what is the code?
sol) Assume the digit xx xx xx (six digits)
First Two digit xx * 3=111
xx=111/3=37
( first two digits of 1 is not divisible by 3 so we can use 111)
Second Two digit xx*6=222
xx=222/6=37
( first two digits of 2 is not divisible by 6 so we can use 222)
Thrid Two digit xx*9=333
xx=333/9=37
( first two digits of 3 is not divisible by 9 so we can use 333)

54) There are 4 balls and 4 boxes of colours yellow, pink, red and green. Red ball is in a box whose colour is same as that of the ball in a yellow box. Red box has green ball. In which box you find the yellow ball?
ans is green...
Sol) Yellow box can have either of pink/yellow balls.
if we put a yellow ball in "yellow" box then it wud imply that "yellow" is also the colour of the box which has the red ball(becoz acordin 2 d question,d box of the red ball n the ball in the yellow box have same colour)
thus this possibility is ruled out...
therefore the ball in yellow box must be pink,hence the colour of box containin red ball is also pink....
=>the box colour left out is "green",,,which is alloted to the only box left,,,the one which has yellow ball..

55) A bag contains 20 yellow balls, 10 green balls, 5 white balls, 8 black balls, and 1 red ball. How many minimum balls one should pick out so that to make sure the he gets at least 2 balls of same color.
Ans:he should pick 6 ball totally.
Sol) Suppose he picks 5 balls of all different colours then when he picks up the sixth one, it must match any on of the previously drawn ball colour.
thus he must pick 6 balls

56) What is the number of zeros at the end of the product of the numbers from 1 to 100
Sol) For every 5 in unit palce one zero is added
so between 1 to 100 there are 10 nos like 5,15,25,..,95 which has 5 in unit place.
Similarly for every no divisible by 10 one zero is added in the answer so between 1 to 100 11 zeros are added
for 25,50,75 3 extra zeros are added
so total no of zeros are 10+11+3=24

57) 10 Digit number has its first digit equals to the numbers of 1's, second digit equals to the numbers of 2's, 3rd digit equals to the numbers of 3's .4th equals number of 4's..till 9th digit equals to the numbers of 9's and 10th digit equals to the number of 0's. what is the number?.(6marks)
ans:2100010006
2---shows that two 1's in the ans
1---shows that one 2 in ans
0---shows no 3 in the ans
0---shows no 4 in the ans
0---shows no 5 in the ans
1---shows one 6 in the ans
0---shows no 7 in the ans
0---shows no 8 in the ans
0---shows no 9 in the ans
6---shows six 0's in the ans

58) There are two numbers in the ratio 8:9. if the smaller of the two numbers is increased by 12 and the larger number is reduced by 19 thee the ratio of the two numbers is 5:9. Find the larger number?
sol) 8x:9x initialy
8x+ 12 : 9x - 19 = 5x:9x
8x+12 = 5x
-> x = 4

59) There are three different boxes A, B and C. Difference between weights of A and B is 3 kgs. And between B and C is 5 kgs. Then what is the maximum sum of the differences of all possible combinations when two boxes are taken each time
A-B = 3
B-c = 5
a-c = 8
so sum of diff = 8+3+5 = 16 kgs

60) A and B are shooters and having their exam. A and B fall short of 10 and 2 shots respectively to the qualifying mark. If each of them fired atleast one shot and even by adding their total score together, they fall short of the qualifying mark, what is the qualifying mark?
ans is 11
coz each had atleast 1 shot done so 10 + 1 = 11
n 9 + 2 = 11
so d ans is 11

61) A, B, C, and D tells the following times by looking at their watches. A tells it is 3 to 12. B tells it is 3 past 12. C tells it is 12:2. D tells it is half a dozen too soon to 12. No two watches show the same time. The difference between the watches is 2,3,4,5 respectively. Whose watch shows maximum time?
sol) A shows 11:57, B shows 12:03, C shows 12:02, and D shows 11:06 therefore, max time is for B

62) Falling height is proportional to square of the time. One object falls 64cm in 2sec than in 6sec from how much height the object will fall.
Sol) The falling height is proportional to the squere of the time.
Now, the falling height is 64cm at 2sec
so, the proportional constant is=64/(2*2)=16;
so, at 6sec the object fall maximum (16*6*6)cm=576cm;
Now, the object may be situated at any where.
if it is>576 only that time the object falling 576cm within 6sec .Otherwise if it is situated<576 then it fall only that height at 6sec.

63) Gavaskar average in first 50 innings was 50. After the 51st innings his average was 51 how many runs he made in the 51st innings
Ans) first 50 ings.- run= 50*50=2500
51st ings.- avg 51. so total run =51*51=2601.
so run scored in that ings=2601-2500=101 runs.

64) Anand finishes a work in 7 days, Bittu finishes the same job in 8 days and Chandu in 6 days. They take turns to finish the work. Anand on the first day, Bittu on the second and Chandu on the third day and then Anand again and so on. On which day will the work get over?
a) 3rd b) 6th c) 9th d) 7th
Ans is d) 7th day
Sol) In d 1st day Anand does 1/7th of total work
similarly,
Bithu does 1/8th work in d 2nd day
hence at d end of 3 days, work done = 1/7+1/8+1/6=73/168
remaining work = (168-73)/168 = 95/168
again after 6 days of work, remaining work is = (95-73)/168 = 22/168
and hence Anand completes the work on 7th day.(hope u understood.)

65) A man, a women and a child can do a piece of work in 6 days,man can do it in 14 days, women can do it 16 days, and in how many days child can do the same work?

Re: TCS Solved Placement papers with

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) placement papers pattern help the fresher as well as experienced candidates who are waiting to get place in TCS.

Sample Questions:

1. Ray writes a two digit number. He sees that the number exceeds 4 times the sum of its digits by 3. If the number is increased by 18, the result is the same as the number formed by reversing the digits. Find the number.
a) 35
b) 42
c) 49
d) 57
Solution: Let the two digit number be xy.
4(x + y) +3 = 10x + y .......(1)
10x + y + 18 = 10 y + x ....(2)
Solving 1st equation we get 2x - y = 1 .....(3)
Solving 2nd equation we get y - x = 2 .....(4)
Solving 3 and 4, we get x = 3 and y = 5

2. a, b, c are non negitive integers such that 28a+30b+31c = 365. a + b + c = ?
a) Greater than 14
b) less than or equal to 11
c) 13
d) 12
In a calender,
Number of months having 28 days = 1
Number of months having 30 days = 4
Number of months having 31 days = 7
28 x 1 + 30 x 4 + 31 x 7 = 365
Here, a = 1, b = 4, c = 7.

a+b+c = 12

3. George can do a piece of work in 8 hours. Paul can do the same work in 10 hours, Hari can do the same work in 12 hours. George, paul and hari start the same work at 9 am, while george stops at 11 am, the remaining two complete the work. What time will the work complete?
a) 11.30 am
b) 12 noon
c) 12.30 pm
d) 1 pm
Let the total work = 120 units.
As George completes this entire work in 8 hours, his capacity is 15 units /hour
Similarly, the capacity of paul is 12 units / hour
the capacity of Hari is 10 units / hour
All 3 started at 9 am and worked upto 11 am. So total work done upto 11 am = 2 x (15 + 12 + 10) = 74
Remaining work = 120 - 74 = 46
Now this work is to be done by paul and hari. 46 / (12 + 10) = 2 hours (approx)

So work gets completed at 1 pm

4. If x^y denotes x raised to the power y, Find last two digits of (1141^3843) + (1961^4181)
a) 02
b) 82
c) 42
d) 22

Remember 1 raised to any power will give 1 as unit digit.
To find the digit in the 10th place, we have to multiply, 10th digit in the base x unit digit in the power.
So the Last two digits of the given expression = 21 + 61 = 82

5. J can dig a well in 16 days. P can dig a well in 24 days. J, P, H dig in 8 days. H alone can dig the well in How many days?
a) 32
b) 48
c) 96
d) 24
Assume the total work = 48 units.
Capacity fo J = 48 / 16 = 3 units / day
Capacity of P = 48 / 24 = 2 units / day
Capacity of J, P, H = 48 / 8 = 6 units / day
From the above capacity of H = 6 - 2 - 3 = 1
So H takes 48 / 1 days = 48 days to dig the well

6. If a lemon and apple together costs Rs.12, tomato and a lemon cost Rs.4 and an apple costs Rs.8 more than a lemon. What is the cost of lemon?
L + A = 12 ...(1)
T + L = 4 .....(2)
L + 8 = A
Taking 1 and 3, we get A = 10 and L = 2

7. 3 mangoes and 4 apples costs Rs.85. 5 apples and 6 peaches costs 122. 6 mangoes and 2 peaches costs Rs.144. What is the combined price of 1 apple, 1 peach, and 1 mango.
a) 37
b) 39
c) 35
d) 36
3m + 4a = 85 ..(1)
5a + 6p = 122 ..(2)
6m + 2p = 144 ..(3)
(1) x 2 => 6m + 8a = 170
4 x (3) => 6m + 2p = 144
Solving we get 8a - 2p = 56 ..(4)

(2) => 5a + 6p = 122
3 x (4) = 24a - 6p = 168
Solving we get a = 10, p = 12, m = 15
So a + p + m = 37

8. An organisation has 3 committees, only 2 persons are members of all 3 committee but every pair of committee has 3 members in common. what is the least possible number of members on any one committee?
a) 4
b) 5
c) 6
d) 1

(i) Ladu not eaten on monday
(ii) If Jamun is eaten on Monday, Ladu should be eaten on friday.
(iii) Peda is eaten the day following the day of eating Jilebi
(iv) If Ladu eaten on tuesday, kaju should be eaten on monday

based on above, peda can be eaten on any day except
a) tuesday
b) monday
c) wednesday
d) friday

From the (iii) clue, peda must be eaten after jilebi. so Peda should not be eaten on monday.

10. If YWVSQ is 25 - 23 - 21 - 19 - 17, Then MKIGF
a) 13 - 11 - 8 - 7 - 6
b) 1 - 2-3-5-7

12. Value of a scooter depriciates in such a way that its value at the end of each year is 3/4th of its value at the beginning of the same year. If the initial value of scooter is 40,000, what is the value of the scooter at the end of 3 years.
a) 23125
b) 19000
c) 13435
d) 16875
value of the scooter at the end of the year = 40000×(34)3 = 16875

13. At the end of 1994, R was half as old as his grandmother. The sum of the years in which they were born is 3844. How old R was at the end of 1999
a) 48
b) 55
c) 49
d) 53
In 1994, Assume the ages of GM and R = 2k, k
then their birth years are 1994 - 2k, 1994 - k.
But given that sum of these years is 3844.
So 1994 - 2k + 1994 - k = 3844
K = 48
In 1999, the age of R is 48 + 5 = 53

14. When numbers are written in base b, we have 12 x 25 = 333, the value of b is?
a) 8

3) My flight takes of at 2am from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place with coordinates 36N70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?
6:00 am b) 6:40am c) 7:40 d) 7:00 e) 8:00
Sol) The destination place is 80 degree west to the starting place. Hence the time difference between these two places is 5 hour 20 min. (=24hr*80/360).
When the flight landed, the time at the starting place is 12 noon (2 AM + 10 hours).
Hence, the time at the destination place is 12 noon - 5:20 hours = 6: 40 AM

4) A plane moves from 9°N40°E to 9°N40°W. If the plane starts at 10 am and takes 8 hours to reach the destination, find the local arrival time ?
Sol) Since it is moving from east to west longitide we need to add both
ie,40+40=80
multiply the ans by 4
=>80*4=320min
convert this min to hours ie, 5hrs 33min
It takes 8hrs totally . So 8-5hr 30 min=2hr 30min
So the ans is 10am+2hr 30 min
=>ans is 12:30 it will reach

5) The size of the bucket is N kb. The bucket fills at the rate of 0.1 kb per millisecond. A programmer sends a program to receiver. There it waits for 10 milliseconds. And response will be back to programmer in 20 milliseconds. How much time the program takes to get a response back to the programmer, after it is sent? Please tell me the answer with explanation. Very urgent.
Sol) see it doesn't matter that wat the time is being taken to fill the bucket.after reaching program it waits there for 10ms and back to the programmer in 20 ms.then total time to get the response is 20ms +10 ms=30ms...it's so simple....

6) A file is transferred from one location to another in 'buckets'. The size of the bucket is 10 kilobytes. Each bucket gets filled at the rate of 0.0001 kilobytes per millisecond. The transmission time from sender to receiver is 10 milliseconds per bucket. After the receipt of the bucket the receiver sends an acknowledgement that reaches sender in 100 milliseconds. Assuming no error during transmission, write a formula to calculate the time taken in seconds to successfully complete the transfer of a file of size N kilobytes.

Ans:4 good, 1 fair n 2 bad days
Sol) Go to river catch fish
4*9=36
7*1=7
2*5=10
36+7+10=53...
take what is given 53
good days means --- 9 fishes so 53/9=4(remainder=17) if u assume 5 then there is no chance for bad days.
fair days means ----- 7 fishes so remaining 17 --- 17/7=1(remainder=10) if u assume 2 then there is no chance for bad days.
bad days means -------5 fishes so remaining 10---10/5=2days.
Ans: 4 good, 1 fair, 2bad. ==== total 7 days.

x+y+z=7--------- eq1
9*x+7*y+5*z=53 -------eq2
multiply eq 1 by 9,
9*x+9*y+9*z=35 -------------eq3
from eq2 and eq3
2*y+4*z=10-----eq4
since all x,y and z are integer i sud put a integer value of y such that z sud be integer in eq 4 .....and ther will be two value y=1 or 3 then z = 2 or 1 from eq 4

for first y=1,z=2 then from eq1 x= 4
so 9*4+1*7+2*5=53.... satisfied
now for second y=3 z=1 then from eq1 x=3
so 9*3+3*7+1*5=53 ......satisfied
so finally there are two solution of this question
(x,y,z)=(4,1,2) and (3,3,1)...

8) Y catches 5 times more fishes than X. If total number of fishes caught by X and Y is 42, then number of fishes caught by X?

then p=7,r=35

9) Three companies are working independently and receiving the savings 20%, 30%, 40%. If the companies work combinely, what will be their net savings?
suppose total income is 100
so amount x is getting is 80
y is 70
z =60
total=210

but total money is 300
300-210=90
so they are getting 90 rs less
90 is 30% of 300 so they r getting 30% discount

10) The ratio of incomes of C and D is 3:4.the ratio of their expenditures is 4:5. Find the ratio of their savings if the savings of C is one fourths of his income?

12) If A can copy 50 pages in 10 hours and A and B together can copy 70 pages in 10 hours, how much time does B takes to copy 26 pages?
Sol) A can copy 50 pages in 10 hrs.
A can copy 5 pages in 1hr.(50/10)
now A & B can copy 70 pages in 10hrs.
thus, B can copy 90 pages in 10 hrs.[eqn. is (50+x)/2=70, where x--> no. of pages B can copy in 10 hrs.]
so, B can copy 9 pages in 1hr.
therefore, to copy 26 pages B will need almost 3hrs.
since in 3hrs B can copy 27 pages.

13) what's the answer for that :
A, B and C are 8 bit no's. They are as follows:
A -> 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 1
B -> 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1
C -> 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 ( - =minus, u=union)
Find ((A - C) u B) =?

To find A-C, We will find 2's compliment of C and them add it with A,
That will give us (A-C)
2's compliment of C=1's compliment of C+1
=11000101+1=11000110
A-C=11000101+11000110
=10001001
Now (A-C) U B is .OR. logic operation on (A-C) and B
10001001 .OR . 00110011
Whose decimal equivalent is 187.

26) The total expense of a boarding house are partly fixed and partly variable with the number of boarders. The charge is Rs.70 per head when there are 25 boarders and Rs.60 when there are 50 boarders. Find the charge per head when there are 100 boarders.
a) 65 b) 55 c) 50 d) 45
Sol)
Let a = fixed cost and k = variable cost and n = number of boarders
total cost when 25 boarders c = 25*70 = 1750 i.e. 1750 = a + 25k
total cost when 50 boarders c = 50*60 = 3000 i.e. 3000 = a + 50k
solving above 2 eqns, 3000-1750 = 25k i.e. 1250 = 25k i.e. k = 50
therefore, substituting this value of k in either of above 2 eqns we get
a = 500 (a = 3000-50*50 = 500 or a = 1750 - 25*50 = 500)
so total cost when 100 boarders = c = a + 100k = 500 + 100*50 = 5500
so cost per head = 5500/100 = 55

27) Amal bought 5 pens, 7 pencils and 4 erasers. Rajan bought 6 pens, 8 erasers and 14 pencils for an amount which was half more than what Amal had paid. What % of the total amount paid by Amal was paid for pens?
a) 37.5% b) 62.5% c) 50% d) None of these
Sol)
Let, 5 pens + 7 pencils + 4 erasers = x rupees
so 10 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erasers = 2*x rupees
also mentioned, 6 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erarsers = 1.5*x rupees
so (10-6) = 4 pens = (2-1.5)x rupees
so 4 pens = 0.5x rupees => 8 pens = x rupees
so 5 pens = 5x/8 rupees = 5/8 of total (note x rupees is total amt paid byamal)
i.e 5/8 = 500/8% = 62.5% is the answer

28) I lost Rs.68 in two races. My second race loss is Rs.6 more than the first race. My friend lost Rs.4 more than me in the second race. What is the amount lost by my friend in the second race?

2x + 6 = 68
2x = 68-6
2x = 62
x=31
x is the amt lost in I race
x+ 6 = 31+6=37 is lost in second race
then my friend lost 37 + 4 = 41 Rs

if we put a yellow ball in "yellow" box then it wud imply that "yellow" is also the colour of the box which has the red ball(becoz acordin 2 d question,d box of the red ball n the ball in the yellow box have same colour)
thus this possibility is ruled out...
therefore the ball in yellow box must be pink,hence the colour of box containin red ball is also pink....
=>the box colour left out is "green",,,which is alloted to the only box left,,,the one which has yellow ball..

55) A bag contains 20 yellow balls, 10 green balls, 5 white balls, 8 black balls, and 1 red ball. How many minimum balls one should pick out so that to make sure the he gets at least 2 balls of same color.
Ans:he should pick 6 ball totally.
Sol) Suppose he picks 5 balls of all different colours then when he picks up the sixth one, it must match any on of the previously drawn ball colour.
thus he must pick 6 balls

56) What is the number of zeros at the end of the product of the numbers from 1 to 100
Sol) For every 5 in unit palce one zero is added
so between 1 to 100 there are 10 nos like 5,15,25,..,95 which has 5 in unit place.
Similarly for every no divisible by 10 one zero is added in the answer so between 1 to 100 11 zeros are added
for 25,50,75 3 extra zeros are added
so total no of zeros are 10+11+3=24

57) 10 Digit number has its first digit equals to the numbers of 1's, second digit equals to the numbers of 2's, 3rd digit equals to the numbers of 3's .4th equals number of 4's..till 9th digit equals to the numbers of 9's and 10th digit equals to the number of 0's. what is the number?.(6marks)
ans:2100010006
2---shows that two 1's in the ans
1---shows that one 2 in ans
0---shows no 3 in the ans
0---shows no 4 in the ans
0---shows no 5 in the ans
1---shows one 6 in the ans
0---shows no 7 in the ans
0---shows no 8 in the ans
0---shows no 9 in the ans
6---shows six 0's in the ans

58) There are two numbers in the ratio 8:9. if the smaller of the two numbers is increased by 12 and the larger number is reduced by 19 thee the ratio of the two numbers is 5:9. Find the larger number?
sol) 8x:9x initialy
8x+ 12 : 9x - 19 = 5x:9x
8x+12 = 5x
-> x = 4

59) There are three different boxes A, B and C. Difference between weights of A and B is 3 kgs. And between B and C is 5 kgs. Then what is the maximum sum of the differences of all possible combinations when two boxes are taken each time
A-B = 3
B-c = 5
a-c = 8
so sum of diff = 8+3+5 = 16 kgs

60) A and B are shooters and having their exam. A and B fall short of 10 and 2 shots respectively to the qualifying mark. If each of them fired atleast one shot and even by adding their total score together, they fall short of the qualifying mark, what is the qualifying mark?
ans is 11
coz each had atleast 1 shot done so 10 + 1 = 11
n 9 + 2 = 11
so d ans is 11

61) A, B, C, and D tells the following times by looking at their watches. A tells it is 3 to 12. B tells it is 3 past 12. C tells it is 12:2. D tells it is half a dozen too soon to 12. No two watches show the same time. The difference between the watches is 2,3,4,5 respectively. Whose watch shows maximum time?
sol) A shows 11:57, B shows 12:03, C shows 12:02, and D shows 11:06 therefore, max time is for B

62) Falling height is proportional to square of the time. One object falls 64cm in 2sec than in 6sec from how much height the object will fall.
Sol) The falling height is proportional to the squere of the time.
Now, the falling height is 64cm at 2sec
so, the proportional constant is=64/(2*2)=16;
so, at 6sec the object fall maximum (16*6*6)cm=576cm;
Now, the object may be situated at any where.
if it is>576 only that time the object falling 576cm within 6sec .Otherwise if it is situated<576 then it fall only that height at 6sec.

63) Gavaskar average in first 50 innings was 50. After the 51st innings his average was 51 how many runs he made in the 51st innings
Ans) first 50 ings.- run= 50*50=2500
51st ings.- avg 51. so total run =51*51=2601.
so run scored in that ings=2601-2500=101 runs.

64) Anand finishes a work in 7 days, Bittu finishes the same job in 8 days and Chandu in 6 days. They take turns to finish the work. Anand on the first day, Bittu on the second and Chandu on the third day and then Anand again and so on. On which day will the work get over?
a) 3rd b) 6th c) 9th d) 7th
Ans is d) 7th day
Sol) In d 1st day Anand does 1/7th of total work
similarly,
Bithu does 1/8th work in d 2nd day
hence at d end of 3 days, work done = 1/7+1/8+1/6=73/168
remaining work = (168-73)/168 = 95/168
again after 6 days of work, remaining work is = (95-73)/168 = 22/168
and hence Anand completes the work on 7th day.(hope u understood.)

65) A man, a women and a child can do a piece of work in 6 days,man can do it in 14 days, women can do it 16 days, and in how many days child can do the same work?
The child does it in 24 days

66)
A: 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1
B: 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 0
C: 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1
Find ( (A-B) u C )==?
Hint : 109
A-B is {A} - {A n B}
A: 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1
B: 0 1 1 1 1 0 1 0
by binary sub. a-b = 01100001 (1-0=1, 1-1=0,0-0=0, n for the 1st 3 digits 110-011=011)
now (a-b)uc= 01100001
or 01101101
gives 1101101... convert to decimal equals 109
