5. The ratio between the angles of a quadrilateral is 6 : 3 : 4 : 5. The smallest angle of a triangle is one-fourth the largest angle of the quadrilateral. Largest angle of the triangle is 10° more than second largest angle of the triangle. What is the second largest angle of the triangle ?
A)  80°
B)  60°
C)  70°
D)  Cannot be determined
E)  None of these

6) A boat goes 48 km downstream in 20 h. it takes 4 h more to cover the same distance against the stream. What is the speed of the boat in still water?
A) 2.2 km/h
B) 2 km/h
C) 4 km/h
D) 4.2 km/h
E) None of these

1. C)
C.P. of the item = ( 6750 ×100 )/75 = Rs 9000
So, Reqd. S.P. of the item = (9000 × 11E)  /100=Rs 10350

2. A)
Length of the rectangle = 112/8 = 14 cm, so  perimeter= 44 cm,
Circumference= 132-44=88 cm,
R = (88 × 7 )/(2 ×2B)    = 14cm

3. D)

4. B)
Number = 740 × 35/100 - 34 = 225
2/5  of the number=90

5. C)
The largest angle of the quadrilateral (6 ×360)/(6+4+3+E)   = 120 degrees
Smallest angle of the triangle = 120 × 1/4 = 30 degrees
If second largest angle of the triangle = (x + 10)
So 30+ x+ x+10 = 180 , x = 70 degrees

6. A)
Speed downstream = 48/20 = 2.4 km/h
Speed upstream = 48/24 = 2 km/h
Speed of boat in still water
= ½(2.4+B)
= 2.2 Km/h

#### English Language:

Directions (1-10): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are given in Italic bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

The subject “Good Governance” is both topical and timely. It is an axiom of political science that a State comes into being for life but it exists for good life. The duty of the state is not only to protect life and liberty but goes further, to enable the people to live in a measure of physical and mental comfort. Democracy is a government by the citizens themselves. The people should realise that they are responsible for choosing the right and proper persons to represent them in national affairs. In colonial administration the government was different from the people. Those governments ruled but without the consent and concurrence of the people. This old concept still persists in the masses today. They do not realise that the general election is the occasion for them to choose a government for themselves. On the contrary, the masses feel that the franchise is a patronage to be conferred on their kith and kin, or the local candidate, or one of their caste and religious fraternity. In mature democracies, a person who changes his party affiliation or crosses the floor, seldom gets re-elected by the electorate. They do not trust him to stand firm by the policies and programmes proposed by him. In India a person who was in the Congress Government and immediately thereafter in the Janata Government and then in Chandrashekhar Government was re-elected and came once again into the Congress Government!

The electorate votes for a criminal or a corrupt candidate, and bemoans that the country has a bad government. The electorate does not realise that even as it contributes to its own household expenditure, it has to contribute to the country’s governance. It is easily misled by the unscrupulous promises of political parties of free food, free clothes, free electricity, free everything. Even enlightened people plead for tax concessions, subsidies and incentives oblivious of the fact that they are met by borrowings which in turn impose burdens indirectly on themselves. Besides, in a true democracy, the people voluntarily observe the laws, rules and regulations as they are forged by themselves in the interest of good governance. It is only because 90% of the people abide by the laws and 10% transgress them that the state is able to maintain order and harmony. If the situation were reversed with 90% transgressing the law and 10% abiding by it, there can be no organised society, no peace and harmony. Some of the advanced countries, notably Switzerland, have perhaps the highest degree of compliance. A mere board stating that the road is closed will be complied with by almost 100% of the people.
