 A

69.

 B

23.

 C

67.

 D

73.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let there be N coins of each denomination. Then N × (1 + 5 + 10) = 368, which gives N = $368/16$, and 3N = 3 × $368/16$ = 69.


Question 2

The maximum value of the expression 31 - |x - 6| is?

 A

31.

 B

33.

 C

29.

 D

35.

Soln.
Ans: a

The maximum occurs when the value of |x - 6| is the lowest, which is 0, so the maximum value is 31.


Question 3

The maximum value of the expression 46 - |x - 9| is?

 A

46.

 B

48.

 C

44.

 D

50.

Soln.
Ans: a

The maximum occurs when the value of |x - 9| is the lowest, which is 0, so the maximum value is 46.


Question 4

A bag contains equal number of coins each of Rs. 1, 5 and 10. What is the total number of coins in the bag, if the total money is Rs. 496?

 A

93.

 B

31.

 C

91.

 D

97.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let there be N coins of each denomination. Then N × (1 + 5 + 10) = 496, which gives N = $496/16$, and 3N = 3 × $496/16$ = 93.


Question 5

A piece of length $10{2/23}$ is cut out of a pipe of length $46{2/5}$. What is the length of the remaining pipe?

 A

$36{36/115}$.

 B

$37{73/114}$.

 C

$34{83/117}$.

 D

$38{25/39}$.

Soln.
Ans: a

We have to find $46{2/5}$ - $10{2/23}$, which is same as ${232/5}$ - ${232/23}$ = 232 × ${23 - 5}/{23 × 5}$ = ${4176/115}$. So ${4176/115}$, which is same as: $36{36/115}$ is the required answer.
