### Question 3

Sunita is 14 weeks and 11 days older than me, whereas Kirat is 17 weeks and 14 days older than Sunita. If Kirat was born on a Wednesday, on which day of the week was I born?

A

Tuesday.

B

Thursday.

C

Sunday.

D

Friday.

Soln.
Ans: C

Kirat is 14 + 17 = 31 weeks and 11 + 14 = 25 days older than me. Weeks are in multiples of 7 days. So we can ignore them. We can deal with the 25 days alone. Since 25 = 3 X 7 + 4, the excess days are 4. So we can count the day to Wednesday + 4 = Sunday.

### Question 23

Six cubes with their upper faces erased are as shown.

The sum of the numbers on the opposite faces is 7.

If the even numbered dice have odd numbers on their top faces and odd numbered dice have even numbers on their bottom faces, then what would be the sum of the numbers on the top faces of all the dice?

A
12
B
14
C
18
D
16
Soln.
Ans: D

Since the sum of digits on opposite faces is 7, faces with odd digits would have even digits opposite them. Hence, the digits at the top of all these dice are odd. Let's deduce them. We have been given that the sum of the digits on each of the opposite faces is 7. To find the odd number at the top, we should prove that two out of the three odd numbers 1, 3 and 5 appear on the sides. Then the third will automatically be on the top.

1. Dice 1: The number opposite 6 is 1, and the number 3 is already visible, so the number at the top is 5.
2. Dice 2: The number opposite 4 is 3, so the number at its top is 1.
3. Dice 3: The number opposite 6 is 1, the number opposite 4 is 3, so the number at the top is 5.
4. Dice 4: By the same logic as above, the number at the top is 1.
5. Dice 5: By the same logic as above, the number at the top is 3.
6. Dice 6: By the same logic as above, the number at the top is 1.

The sum is 5 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 3 + 1 = 16.
