Answers With Explanation :-

1. (B)

After taking LCM of 4 , 6 , 11 = 132
The students left in each case = 3
Required number of students = 132 + 3 = 135

2. (D)

3. (A)
Initial population = 15,00000;
After first year increment of 10 %, population = 1500000 + 10/100 × 1500000 = 1650000
After second year decrement of 20%, population = 1650000 - 20/100 × 1650000 = 1320000
After increment of 30 % in third year = 1320000 + 30/100 × 1320000 = 1716000

4. (D)
Daily  wages are in the ratio 3 : 4 : 5 , working days of A,B,C = 8,9 and 12 so the wages they get will be in ratio 24 : 45 : 48,
Share of C = 48/(24+45+48) × 1950 = Rs 800

5. (B)  
use chain rule ; if 100 men will do one job in 100 days individually , so one man will do one job in 100 days .

6. (D)
C.P. of one mango = 12/15 = 80 paise ; S.P. of one mango = 15/12=Rs 1.25 ;
Gain = 45 paise , gain = 45/80 × 100 = 56.25 %

7. (A)  
Average speed = (2x×y )/((x+y))=(2 × 50 × 60)/(50 + 60) = 600/11 = 54 6/11 km/hr

Answers with Explanation

1.(e) It is clearly mentioned in the call letter itself in order to avoid a situation in which the candidates demand for their travelling expenses. So assumption I is implicit. Special mentioning of the fact means that some companies do reimburse the travel expenses.

2.(d) Clearly assumption I is not implicit. Indiscipline in industry and poor quality of life for worker are the two problems pointed at in the statement. But it-is not mentioned that one is the cause of other. So assumption II is also not implicit.

3. (e) As the people surprise the fact that the princes has married a commoner , i.e, a person not of her status and 'not' of royal blood' suggest that assumptions I and II are implicit.

4. (e) When a notice is issued it is expected that the people for which it is issued will pay attention to it. Also the theme of the statement is desirable. Here the theme is reduction of tax, which can be constructed as reduction in expenditure. Hence, the required answer is 5.

5. (a) Since the statement itself says that economic prosperity is measured by the quality of its human resources, we can say that assumption I is implicit. However, assumption II leaves much to be desired for.

6. (b) The people were not enthused by the campaign does not imply that people do not want to keep their city clean. Thus assumption I is not implicit. Also the main notice. Of the campaign was to involve as many citizens as possible to keep the city clean but it failed to achieve its stipulated target. Thus assumption II is implicit.

7.(d) Assumption I is not at all related to the statement just because private bus operators have gone on strike does not mean that every employee has a right to go for strike (even though it may be true legally, but it is not relevant in this statement). Assumption II is totally irrelevant, hence both the assumptions are not implicit.

8.(b) Since nothing has been said about the earlier scheme or law so we cannot say about the efficiency of the new scheme. Thus assumption I is not implicit. The highlight of the scheme is that people may retain their property by paying lowest ever rate of tax. Thus it can be safely assumed that people desire to pay less tax and own things legally. Thus assumption II is implicit. Hence the required answer is b.
