1. A can finish a work in 24 days, B in 9 days and C in 12 days. B and C start the work but are forced to leave after 3 days. The remaining work was done by A in:  A. 5 days 
  B. 6 days 

 C. 10 days 
  D. 10 1 days
 2 
 

Answer: Option C
Explanation:
(B + C)'s 1 day's work =  1 + 1  = 7 .
  9  12   36 
Work done by B and C in 3 days =  7 x 3  = 7 .   36    12 
Remaining work =  1  7  = 5 .
   12   12 
Now, 1 work is done by A in 1 day.
 24 
So, 5 work is done by A in  24 x 5  = 10 days.  12    12

The percentage increase in the area of a rectangle, if each of its sides is increased by 20% is:  A. 40% 
  B. 42% 

 C. 44% 
  D. 46% 

Answer: Option CExplanation:Let original length = x metres and original breadth = y metres.Original area = (xy) m2. New length =  120 x m =  6 x m.   100     5  
New breadth =  120 y m =  6 y m.
  100     5  
New Area =  6 x x 6 y m2 =  36 xy m2.   5  5     25  
The difference between the original area = xy and newarea 36/25 xy is= (36/25)xy  xy= xy(36/25  1) = xy(11/25) or (11/25)xy Increase % =  11 xy x 1 x 100 % = 44%.   25  xy

3x  2x = 60x = 60 km. Time taken to travel 60 km at 10 km/hr =  60 hrs = 6 hrs.   10  
So, Robert started 6 hours before 2 P.M. i.e., at 8 A.M. Required speed =  60 kmph. = 12 kmph.   5
