**Aspirants can check the answers for the above Questions from the below given ones. **

**1. (b) **

Only two languages (One is COBOL)= 1200- (404+388+222+40+74)= 72

**2. (a) **

COBOL+BASIC and COBOL+C = 1200- (404+388+222+40+74)= 72

Exactly any two languages only = = 72+74 = 146

**3. ( b ) **

COBOL+BASIC and COBOL+C = 1200- (404+388+222+40+74)= 72

C language= 404+74+40+(72-COBOL language and BASIC only)=554

Therefore, COBOL+BASIC =( 404+74+40+72)-554=36

Required total = 222+74+40+36 = 372

**4. (e) **

BASIC language = 222+74+40+(BASIC and COBOL only)=384

BASIC and COBOL only=384-(222+74+40)=48

Therefore, COBOL and C only=72(BASIC and COBOL only + COBOL and C only) – 48=24

Both COBOL and C = 40+24=64

**5. (c) **

Number of students study C and BASIC language = Total-COBOL only

=1200-388=812

**6. (a)**

Dhoni:

Let the distance between his house and school be Y km

Time taken when he walks at 6 km/hr = Y/6

Time taken when he walks at 8 km/hr = Y/8

In the first case he is late by 8 minutes while in the second case he reaches early by 8 minutes. So, time difference = 16 minutes.

So, we have,

Y = 6.4 km

**7. (a) **

Dhoni:

Let the distance between his house and school be Y km

Time taken when he walks at 6 km/hr = Y/6

Time taken when he walks at 8 km/hr = Y/8

In the first case he is late by 8 minutes while in the second case he reaches early by 8 minutes. So, time difference = 16 minutes.

So, we have,

Y = 6.4 km

Dhoni needs to cover 6.4 km

In 1st case he walks at 6 km/hr

Required time = = 64 minutes

Therefore, 8 minutes late, = 64-8 = 56 minutes.

Required speed =

Kohli:

Let the distance between his house and school be Z km

Time taken when he walks at 6.5 km/hr = Z/6.5

Time taken when he walks at 8 km/hr = Z/8

In the first case he is late by 12 minutes while in the second case he reaches early by 6 minutes. So, time difference = 18 minutes.

So, we have,

Z = 10.4 km

In 2nd case he walks at 8 km/hr

Required time == 78 minutes

Therefore, 6 minutes late, = 78+6 = 84 minutes.

Required speed =

**8. (d) **

Kohli:

Let the distance between his house and school be Z km

Time taken when he walks at 6.5 km/hr = Z/6.5

Time taken when he walks at 8 km/hr = Z/8

In the first case he is late by 12 minutes while in the second case he reaches early by 6 minutes. So, time difference = 18 minutes.

So, we have,

Z = 10.4 km
