A mixture contains sugar solution and colored water in the ratio 4 : 3. If 14 liters of colored water is added to the mixture, the ratio becomes 2 : 5. Find the initial quantity of sugar solution in the given mixture (in liters).
The initial ratio is 4 : 3.
Let â€˜kâ€™ be the common ratio.
=> Initial quantity of sugar solution = 4 k
=> Initial quantity of colored water = 3 k
=> Final quantity of sugar solution = 4 k
=> Final quantity of colored water = 3 k + 14
Final ratio = 4 k : 3 k + 14 = 2 : 5
=> 20 k = 6 k + 28
=> k = 2
Therefore, initial quantity of sugar solution in the given mixture (in liters) = 4 k = 8 liter
Majnu Bhai is facing northwest. He turns 90 degrees in the clockwise direction, then he turns 45 degrees in the anti-clockwise direction and finally he turns 135 degree in clockwise direction. Which direction is he facing now?
OPtion
1) Esst
2) North East
3) North West
4) West
5) South
6) North
7) South West
8) South East
9) North East or North West
10) None of these
Solution
Clockwise turns = 90+135 = 225
Anti-Clockwise turn = -45
Consolidated turn in clockwise direction = 225-45 = 180 degrees
Majnu bhai initially was facing north west direction, so on turning 180 degrees in clockwise the new direction would be south east
A number consists of 3 digits whose sum is 10. The middle digit is equal to the difference of the other two and the number will be increased by 99 if its digits are reversed. The square of the number is:

Rahmatullah could either walk or drive to office. The time taken to walk to the office is 11 times the driving time. One day, his wife took the car making him walk to office. After walking 2.5 km, he reached a temple when his wife called to say that he can now take the car. Ramanujam figured that continuing to walk to the office will take as long as walking back home and then driving to the office. Calculate the distance between the temple and the office in KMs.
Suppose the distance between his home and office is x km. Then, distance between his office and temple is (x â€“ 2.5) km.
If he walks at a speed of y km/hr. Then his driving speed = 11y km/hour, as he is 11 times faster in car.
Then,
2.5/y + x/11y = (x â€“ 2.5)/y
Or, 2.5 + x/11 = x â€“ 2.5
or 10x/11 = 5
Or, x = 11/2
Finally, x â€“ 2.5 = 11/2-5/2 = 6/2 = 3
