In a mile race, Yuvraj can be given a start of 128 m by Virat. If Virat can give Rohit a start of 4 m in a 100 m dash, then who out of Yuvraj and Rohit will win a race of one and half miles, and what will be the final lead given by the winner to the loser? One mile is 1,600 m.
OPtion
1) Yuvraj, 10 m
2) Rohit, 10 m
3) Yuvraj, 25 m
4) Rohit, 25 m
5) Yuvraj, 50 m
6) Rohit, 50 m
7) Yuvraj, 80 m
8) Rohit, 80 m
9) Rohit, 100 m
10) None of these
Solution
In a mile race, Yuvraj can be given a start of 128 m by Virat. This means that Virat can afford to start after Yuvraj has traveled 128 m and still complete one mile with him. In other words, Virat can travel one mile, i.e. 1,600 m in the same time as Yuvraj can travel (1600 – 128) = 1,472 m. Hence, the ratio of the speeds of Virat and Yuvraj = Ratio of the distances traveled by them in the same time = 1600/1472 = 25 : 23.
Virat can give Rohit a start of 4 miles. This means that in the time Virat runs 100 m, Rohit only runs 96 m. So the ratio of the speeds of Virat and Rohit = 96 : 100 = 25 : 24.
Hence, we have B : A = 25 : 23 and B : C = 25 : 24. So A : B : C = 23 : 25 : 24. This means that in the time Rohit covers 24 m, Yuvraj only covers 23 m. In other words, Rohit is faster than Yuvraj. So if they race for 1.5 miles = 2,400 m, Rohit will complete the race first and by this time Yuvraj would only complete 2,300 m. In other words, Rohit would beat Yuvraj by 100 m
In a 10 km race. Sushant, Rajkumar, and Suraj, each running at uniform speed, get the gold, silver, and bronze medals, respectively. If Sushant beats Rajkumar by 1 km and Rajkumar beats Suraj by 1 km, then by how many metres does Sushant beat Suraj?
OPtion
1) 1.5 km
2) 1.6 km
3) 1.8 km
4) 1.9 m
5) 2.0 km
6) 2.1 km
7) 1900 km
8) 1800 m
9) 1900 m
10) None of these
Solution
Sushant : Rajkumar = 10 : 9
Rajkumar : Suraj = 10 : 9
⇒ The ratio of speeds of Sushant : Rajkumar : Suraj = 100 : 90 : 81
In the same time that Sushant travels 100 m, Suraj travels 81 metres ⇒ In the same time that Sushant travels 10000 m, Suraj would travel 8100 m
or Sushant would beat Suraj by 1900 m.
A tea seller prepares and sells 150 tea cups every day. The total cost incurred on preparing 150 cups of team without any profit or loss is Rs 1275, he sells each cup of tea at Rs 10.
One day while preparing tea, unfortunately, 5 cups of tea get spilled while boiling.
How much is his profit or loss percentage for that day?
OPtion
1) Profit 13.17
2) Profit 12.75
3) Loss 13.73
4) Loss 12.75
5) Profit 13.13
6) Profit 13.87
7) Loss 13.13
8) Loss 13.87
9) Profit 13.73
10) None of these
Solution
CP of 150 Cups = 1275
SP of 150 Cups = 1500
SP of 145 Cups of tea = 1450

Dhanloot bank is running an offer for its customer. On the date 03-08-2020, any amount which is fixed deposited for 3 years would earn a interest rate of 8%.
What would be the simple interest earned by a customer who books fixed deposit on 03-08-2020 on an amount of Rs. 2020 for a period of 3 years?
Let the total pages are 'n'. We have
1 + 2 + 3 + .........+n = 138
⇒ n(n+1) = 276
n (n+1) = 276
The square nearest to 276 is 289.This is the square of 17. Hence, we will take n= 17.
Therefore, sum of the pages= n(n+1)/2 = 17*18/2=153
Missing number = 153-138 =15.
Now, we have to think of 2 consecutive numbers whose sum is 15.
x+x+1=15 ⇒ ×= 7, 8
