295 sq m.

**b.**

**299 sq m.**

c.
300 sq m.

d.
375 sq m.

e.
None of these

**Answers :**

1.C

Let their present ages be 4x, 7x
and 9x years respectively.

Then, (4x - 8) + (7x - 8) + (9x -
8) = 56

20x = 80

x = 4.

**Their present ages are 4x = 16 years, 7x = 28 years and 9x = 36 years respectively.**

2.B

(A's 1 day's work) : (B's 1 day's
work) =7/4 :1 = 7:4

Let A's and B's 1 day's work be
7x and 4x respectively.

Then, 7x + 4x =1/7 x = 1/77

A's 1 day's work = 1 X7 /77 =
1/11

**= 11 Days**

3. D

New speed = 6/7 of usual speed

Now time taken = 7/6 of usual
time

(7/6 of the usual time) – (usual
time) = 10 min

==> 1/6 of the usual time = 10
min

**==> usual time = 60 min.**

4.D Required number = (L.C.M. of 12, 15, 20, 54)
+ 8

**= 540 + 8 = 548.**

5.D

X + Y + Z = (45 x 3) = 135 ....
(i)

X + Y = (40 x 2) = 80 .... (ii)

Y + Z = (43 x 2) = 86 ....(iii)

Adding (ii) and (iii), we get: X
+ 2Y + Z = 166 .... (iv)

Subtracting (i) from (iv), we get
: Y = 31.

**Y's weight = 31 kg.**

6.A

Here, X = 15, Y = 30 and Z = 25

C can empty the full tank in =
(XYZ /YZ +ZX –XY) Minutes

= ( 15*30*25/ ( 30*25 +15*25
-15*30)

**= 11250/1125 = 10 Minutes**

7.C

s1 = 60, s2 = 80, T = time from 4
A.M. to 5 A.M. = 1 hr

Distance of meeting point from
Hyderabad = S1 {( d +S2 t) / (S1 +S2)} km

= 60 {( 340 + 80X1) / (60+80)} =
180 km

Time of their meeting = {( d +S2
t) / (S1 +S2)}

{( 340 + 80X1) / (60+80)}

**3 Hrs after 4 o [email protected] 7:00 AM**

8.B

C's 1 day's work =

1/3−( 1/6+ 1/8) = (1 / 3 − 7 /24)

=1/ 24

=
A:B:C=1/ 6:1/8:1/ 24

=4:3:1

**C′s Share=3200 * 1/8 =400**

9.D

200men x 50Days = 1/4 of work ,

so Total work = 200*50*4.

Now Let extra Men required is x

Therefore, (200+x)*100(remaining
Days) =3/4 of work (That is remaining work).

So , (200+x)*100 = 200*50*4*(3/4)

=> 200+x=300

**=> x= 100**

10. B

Here l=25 m ,b= 15 m , x= 2m

Then, area under the grass

=
area of rect angular – area of passage

=
lXb – x(l+b-x)

=
25X15-2(25+15-2)

**= 375-76 = 299 sq m.**
