(a) 2x+2ykmh-1/3.
(b) x+ ykmh-1/3
(c) x+2 ykmh-1/3
(d) 2x+ ykmh-1/3
Travelled x km/h for 1 hour traveled x km in the first hour.
Traveled y km/h for 2 hours traveled 2y km in the next 2
Total distance = x+2y
Total time= 1+2=3
Average speed = Total distance/total time
note km-1 stands for km per hr
Answer: C

27. The ages of three men are in the ratio 3:4:5. If the difference between the ages of the oldest and youngest is 18 years, find the sum of the ages of the three men.
(a) 45 years
(b) 72 years
(c) 108 years
(d) 216 years
Answer: C
Let the rational between their ages be x
As per statement, the ages of the three men are in the
ratio 3 : 4 : 5
Hence their ages are 3x, 4x and 5x
Difference between the ages of the oldest man and
youngest man is 18 years
Oldest man age is 5x and youngest man age is 3x
5x – 3x = 18 years
2x = 18
x = 18 / 2
x = 9 years
The rational is 9 years, hence their respective ages
Oldest man age= 5x = 5 × 9 = 45 years
Middle man age = 4x = 4 × 9 = 36 years
Youngest man age = 3x = 3 × 9 = 27 years
The sum of the ages of the three men =
45 years + 36 years + 27 years = 108 years

28. A bicycle wheel of radius 42cm is rolled over a distance of 66m. How many revolutions does it make?
[Take π=22/7] (a) 2.5
(b) 5
(c) 25
(d) 50
Answer: C
radius = 42 cm
Distance = 66 m = 6600 cm I.e 100cm=1m
Circumference of the wheel of a cycle = 2πr
= 2×(22/7) × 42 = 264 cm.
Number of revolutions = distance /circumference of wheel
= 6600 cm /264 cm = 25
Number of revolutions of cycle = 25

29. In a bag of oranges, the ratio of the good ones to the bad ones is 5:4. If the number of bad ones in the bag is 36, how many oranges are there altogether?
(a) 81
(b) 72
(c) 54
(d) 45
Answer: A
Ratio of good ones to bad ones is 5:4; If 36 is bad;
Then we solve for the good ones
We have 5/4*36=45 Oranges ie the good oranges
∴ The total number of oranges is 36 + 45 = 81.

30. A man is four times as old as his son. The difference between their ages is 36. Find the sum of their ages.
(a) 45 years`
(b) 48 years
(c) 60 years
(d) 74 years
Answer: C
Let age of son be Q.
Since the man is four times as old the age of his son, his age
Difference between their age is 36 years.
4*Q – Q = 36
Q=12, that is, age of son is 12 years.
Age of the man = 4*Q = 4*12 = 48.
Sum of their ages = 48 + 12 = 60.

31. If 4m+3n = 5, find the ratio m:n 4m-3n= 3
(a) 7:4
(b) 4:3
(c) 3:4
(d) 4:7
Answer: A
m implies 4m+3n=5 while n implies 4m-3n=3
So, m:n gives us 4m+3n=5/4m-3n=3 pls note that the division sign starts from 4m+3n=5
After cross multiplying, we have
=5(4m-3n) = 2(4m+3n) note: bracket means multiplication
Collect like terms
= 20m-8m=6n+15n
= 12m=21n
We then separate m and n to be m/n. To achieve this, we
Divide both sides by 12 to get m=21n/12 on the left hand side
And we multiply both sides by 1/n to get m/n = 21/12.
We then divide to its lowest term to give us 7/4
Hence m:n = 7:4 note that in ratio, m:n is also expressed as m/n

32. If 2x : (x+1) =3:2, what is the value of x?
(a) ½
(b) 1
(c) 1½
(d) 3
Answer: D
2x : (x+1) = 3 : 2
The above expression can also be written as:
2x/(x+1) = 3/2
Cross multiply;
2(2x) = 3 (x+1)
4x = 3x + 3
Collect like terms:
4x – 3x = 3
x = 3

33. The ratio of the number of men to the number of women in a 20 member committee is 3:1. How many women must be added to the 20 member committee so as to make the ratio of men to women 3:2 ?
(a) 2
(b) 5
(c) 7
(d) 9
Answer: B.
20 members in the ratio 3:1
Number of women =1/4*20 = 5
Let the number of women to be added = x
Total number of members in the committee = 20 + x
now since we are asked to find the number of women added in the committee
5+x/20+x = 2/5
Cross multiply to get
5(5+x) =2(20+x)
Open bracket
25+5x = 40+2x
Collect like terms
which means 5 must be added

34. What is the probability of having an odd number in a single toss of a fair die?
(a) 1/6
(b) 1/3
(c) ½
(d) 2/3
Answer: C
Formula for probability of an event = number of required outcome / number of total outcome
The total outcome is the possible values in a die which is 6
The required outcome here is having an odd number in a die which is (1,3,5)= 3 that is by counting the num of elements in the bracket
Probability of an event= 3/6 = 1/2 to the lowest term.

Use the following information for question 36 and 36.
The surname of 40 children in a class were arranged in alphabetical order,16 of the surnames begin with O and 9 of the surnames begins with A. 14 letters of the alphabet do not appear as the first letter of a surname.

35. What is the probability that the surname of a child picked at random from the class begins with either O and A?
(a) 5/8
(b) 7/8
(c) 9/16
(d) 14/25
Answer: A
No. of possible outcome = 40
No. of expected outcome = 16 + 9 = 25
Probability = 25/40 = 5/8 note that probability relating to ‘or/either’ means + while ‘and’ means multiplication

36. If more than one surname begins with a letter besides A and O, how many surnames begin with the letter?
(a) 2
(b) 3
(c) 4
(d) 6
Answer: B
14 of the letters of the
alphabet do not appear as the
first letter of surname
∴ the no. of letters that
appeared = 26-14 = 12 Letters appear as the first letter of a surname
Total numbers of arranged letters is 16+9=25 which is the total nos of surnames arranged
Total surnames = 40
Number of surnames not arranged = 40-25= 15 surnames besides A and O
Number of surnames that begin with a letter= 15-12 = 3
∴ 3 surnames begin with the letter

37. Have you moved into your new house yet? Not yet. The rooms________.
(a) is being painted
(b) None of the options

(a) greater than 90 and less than
(b) degrees.
(c) 160 degrees.
(d) less than 45 degrees.
(e) less than 90 degree.
There’s no answer in the options above.
The reflex angle is the larger angle. It is more than 180°
but less than 360° If you choose the smaller angle you
might have an Acute Angle, or an Obtuse Angle instead:
The larger angle is a Reflex Angle, but the smaller angle
is an Acute Angle.
