### Question 9

Jashn is 22 weeks and 12 days older than me, whereas Rajiv is 86 weeks and 12 days older than Jashn. If Rajiv was born on a Sunday, on which day of the week was I born?

Friday.

D

Thursday.

Soln.
Ans: B

Rajiv is 22 + 86 = 108 weeks and 12 + 12 = 24 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 24 days alone. Since 24 = 3 X 7 + 3, the excess days are 3. So we can count the day to Sunday + 3 = Wednesday.

### Question 24

Six dice with their top faces erased have been given. The opposite faces of each dice have numbers which add to thirteen.

If dice, A, B and C have odd numbers at their upper faces and dice D, E and F have even numbers on their bottom faces, then what would be the difference in the totals of top numbers of these two sets ?

A
4
B
8
C
1
D
0
Soln.
Ans: A

Since the sum of the numbers on the opposite sides is 13, one of those numbers would be odd, and the other even. So we can say the all these dice have odd numbers at the top.

1. Dice No. A: Face opposite 6 is 7 because 6 + 7 = 13. Similarly, face opposite 4 is 9. So, the numbers that appear on the sides are 4, 6, 7 and 9. Out of the remaining 5 and 10, the top face is 5.
2. Dice No. B: Face opposite 8 is 5 because 8 + 5 = 13. Similarly, face opposite 9 is 4. So, the numbers that appear on the sides are 4, 5, 8 and 9. Out of the remaining 6 and 7, the upper face is 7.
3. Dice C: Similarly, 5 is at the top.
4. Dice D: Similarly, 7 is at the top.
5. Dice E: 9 is at the top.
6. Dice F: 5 is at the top.

The difference is (7 + 9 + 5) - (5 + 7 + 5) = 4.
