150°.

B

160°.

C

140°.

D

165°.

Soln.
Ans: a

In 60 mins the angle is 360°. So in 1 min it will sweep by 360/60 = 6°. Therefore in 25 mins it will sweep by 6 x 25 = 150°

### Question 4

Radhika is 83 weeks and 6 days older than me, whereas John is 72 weeks and 7 days older than Radhika. If John was born on a Sunday, on which day of the week was I born?

A

Saturday.

B

Monday.

C

Friday.

D

Sunday.

Soln.
Ans: a

John is 83 + 72 = 155 weeks and 6 + 7 = 13 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 13 days alone. Since 13 = 1 X 7 + 6, the excess days are 6. So we can count the day to Sunday + 6 = Saturday.

.

### Question 5

If 22nd January of an ordinary, non-leap year falls on a Monday, then what will be the day of week on 26th February of that year?

A

Monday.

B

Friday.

C

Saturday.

D

Thursday.

Soln.
Ans: a

Count the days from months between January 22 and February 26 like this: January days = 31;Add 26 days of February. Subtract 22 days of January. So total days = 35. Since 35 = 5 X 7 + 0, so excess days are 0. So we can count the day to Monday + 0 = Monday.
