Q.1) c

According to the question,

P:Q = 5:8 ,

At present P = 20+4=24 years, Q= 32+4=36 years

Q.2) e

Parents average age = 42

Average of parents and son = 32

Total ages = 32 X 3 = 96

Age of son = 96 – 84 = 12

Total ages of Son and daughter = 12 + (12 – 4) = 12 + 8 = 20years

Q.3) b



By solving the two equations, we get

A=17, B=32

Q.4) b

By solving (1) and (2), we get


A=23, B=27

Q.5) d

The present age of A = 20-5= 15 years

The present age of B

Required age = 20-5= 15 years

Q.6) c

Except Saturday in one month = 30 – 4 = 26

Required distance

Q.7) c

Total time = 2 and half a day = 24 + 24 + 12 = 60 hours

Average speed


Remaining part = 3300 – (1250+1450) = 600 km

Remaining time = 12 hours

Speed of remaining journey =

Q.8) c

Ratio between the length of faster and slower train = 150: 100= 3:2

From the question,

X= 110

Hence, length of slower train = 2 × 110 = 220 m

Q.9) d

Q.10) d
