Section I (QA + DI) Solutions

1. b The cyclicity of each digit from 0 to 9 is a factor of 4. Hence any digit raised to a power of the type 4k + 1 will always end in the same digit. Hence the answer is x13 + y13. 170!.130! = (130.129.128.3.2.1).170! 300! = (300.299. 298172.171).170! This clearly shows that 300! is greater than 170!.130!. Similarly we can prove that 300! Is greater than all the other options as well. Hence the answer is 300!. Let assume that n + 4 is positive i.e. n > 4. 5n + 20 < 3n and 3n < 14n + 56 8. d Also QR = PR ( 3 PQR is an equilateral triangle) Hence, PR = RS Now PRQ = 60 PRS = 120 So, RPS + PSR = 60 But RPS = PSR ( 3 PR = RS)
RPS = 30

2. d

Therefore, QPS = 60 + 30 = 90 x 50 paise coins and y 1 Re. coins amount to

x Rs. + y 2 y 50 paise coins and x 1 Re. coins amount to y Rs. + x 2 It is also given that, y x + x = 1.3 + y 2 2 0.8y = 0.35x

3. c

56 , so no solution is possible. 11 Now let us assume that n + 4 is negative i.e. n < 4. 5n + 20 > 3n and 3n > 14n + 56
n < 10 and n >

56 11 So n can take 4 integral values 6, 7, 8, 9.

n > 10 and n <

4. c

Let the distance travelled by each of the 50 wheels be x km. So, 50x = 42 20000 x = 16800 Case 1: All three balls selected are of the same colour. The balls selected could be all blue, all white or all black. Hence there are 3 possible colours for selection. Number of ways = 3C1 Case 2: Exactly two balls selected are of the same colour. The two same coloured balls selected could either be both red, both blue, both white or both black. Hence 4 possible colours for selection give 4C1 ways. The third ball selected could of any of the remaining three colours and hence can be selected in 3C1 ways. Number of ways = Total ways =

6. d

Let the number of Cars, Puzzles and Planes be X, Y and Z respectively. So X + Y = 25, Y + Z = 32, X + Z = 27 Solving we get X = 10, Y = 15 and Z = 17.
P

The ratio of the number of employees in Office B to Office D is 1 : 13. So the possible solutions are: B D 1 13 2 26 3 39 ...

7. a

As the number of employees in Office A is 13 and number of employees at any office is at least 2, therefore the number of employees at B, D and C is 2, 26 and 13 respectively. 9. b The total age of the employees in Office A is = 42x + 3(2 + x) + 28(13 x) + 10(26 + 13 x) = 42x + 6 + 3x 38x + 58 13 = 58 13 + 6 + 7x The average age of the employees working in any of the four offices is an integer.

The area of PRS is half the area of PQS which means that PR is a median. So QR = RS

Average age for office A =

58 13 + 6 + 7x 13
16. a

8 triangles in which exactly two sides are equal and all the interior angles are acute.
The figure would look like the one given below:

6 + 7x 13 x = 1 for average age to be an integer. Average age = 59 = 58 +

10. c The average salary = Rs 39200 39200 54 = 40000 13 + A 2 + 36000 13 + 42000 26 So A = Rs.18400

11. a From the above figure.

R 2 + R + r + r 2 = 10 2

12. b

Area of any polygon = r s (where r is the inradius and s is the semiperimeter) Hence, for any n sided regular polygon with inradius r and side x units,

R+r=

1 Area = (nx) r 2 Since the area is given as 10x sq units

1 n x r = 10x 2
n r = 20 Here n must be more than or equal to 3. So the possible values of (n, r) are (4, 5), (5, 4), (10, 2), and (20, 1).

10 2 = 10 2 2 2 +1

17. d

The value of a three digit number in base 10 will be from 102 to 103 1. Similarly, the value of a three digit number in base 7 will be from 72 to 73 1. And the value of a three digit number in base 13 will be from 132 to 133 1. So the common numbers are from 132 to 73 1. 169 to 342 Hence, 174 such numbers would be there. Let the three roots be a, b, c. Then a + b + c = 10. Since the sum of the three prime numbers is even, one of them has to be 2. So the three roots have to be 2, 3, 5 as every other combination would give a value greater than 10. If we cross check using ab + bc + ac = 6 + 15 + 10 = 31, it is consistent with the value in the equation (i.e. the value of c/a). Hence, K = abc = 30. Lets assume that 1 man does 1 unit of work in 1 day. So the total units of work will be 150. Work done in the first three days = 30 units Next three days = 36 units Next three days = 42 units Next three days = 48 units So, 156 units of work can be done in 12 days. But we have to do only 150 units. So on the last day, only 10 units of work is done. Hence, the work gets completed on the 12th day.

13. d

CCC = C 111 = C 37 3 Since 3 ABC = 3 C 37, we can say that ABC = C 37. Now we can observe that C can take only one value, which is 5. So ABC = 5 37 = 185. Hence, B = 8. Let us assume the sequence to be a1, a2, a3,a100. According to the question: a1 + a2 +a6 = a2 + a3 +.a7. a1 = a7. Similarly we can prove that a2 = a8, a3 = a9 and so on. Combining these equations we get ak = ak+6 = ak+12 = .. for all natural numbers k. Therefore a19 = a25 == a55 = 55 Also a33 = a39 =. = a99 = 33. So the required sum is 55 + 33 = 88.

52 triangles would be required as follows:

20 triangles in which all the sides are equal and all the interior angles are acute. 12 triangles in which exactly two sides are equal and one interior angle is obtuse. 12 triangles in which all the sides are of different lengths and one interior angle is obtuse.

Case (1) - n is odd: Then 8n + 2n is divisible by (8 + 2). Similarly 7n + 3n is divisible by (7 + 3). So the remainder when the expression is divided by 10 is 0. Case (2) - n is even: Then 8n + 2n is not divisible by (8 + 2). Similarly 7n + 3n is not divisible by (7 + 3). So we shall find the last digits to find the remainders. n is an odd multiple of 2: The last digits of 8n, 7n, 3n, 2n are 4, 9, 9, 4 respectively. So the remainder when the expression is divided by 10 is 6. n is an even multiple of 2: The last digits of 8n, 7n, 3n, 2n are 6, 1, 1, 6 respectively. So the remainder when the expression is divided by 10 is 4. So the sum of all the possible distinct remainders is 0 + 6 + 4 = 10

The fuel consumption between Bangalore and A is

354 320 34 L (say X) = 17 17 The fuel consumption between A and B is 354 252 3 34 L (say Y) = 18 18
So the fuel efficiency between A and B

21. a

i =1

= 2log10! 2log7!

10! = 2log = 2log720 7!

= 2[log(10 9 8)] = 2[1 + 3log2 + 2log3]

25. c

340 = 20L. 17 Fuel consumed between Bangalore and A

At A the amount of fuel in the Car =

= 2 [1 + 3x + 2y ] = 2 + 6x + 4y
So 2 + 6x + 4y = m + nx + ay (m, n, a) = (2, 6, 4) 22. b To form a trapezium using a single cut, the line drawn must be parallel to the base. Lets assume that the line divides the sides in the ratio K : 1 K. Then the sides of the trapezium are 40(1 K), 40, 40(1 K) and 40K. When two such trapeziums are placed beside each other such that one side is common we get a parallelogram whose sides are 40(1 K ), 40 + 40K, 40(1 K) and 40 + 40K . So the perimeter = 4 40 = 160 cm.

354 320 = 2L. 17 So the amount of fuel after filling at Bangalore = 22 L Fuel consumed between Bangalore and C
=

354 165 = 10.5 L 18 Fuel at C before filling is 22 10.5 = 11.5 L

= At E the amount of fuel in the Car =

=

165 66 =6L 16.5 So the amount filled in at C = (14 + 6) ( 11.5 ) = 8.5 L

26. d Since we do not know the consumption from E to Chennai, the answer cannot be determined. 11x + 7y + 8z = (6x + y + 3z) + (5x + 6y + 5z) From Statement A: 6x + y + 3z is multiple of 5 but we cannot say whether 5x + 6y + 5z is a multiple of 5 or not. So Statement A alone is not sufficient.

EF =

From Statement B: 11x + 7y + 8z = (x + 2y + 3z) + (10x + 5y + 5z) We know that x + 2y + 3z is a multiple of 10 and 10x + 5y + 5z is a multiple of 5. So from Statement B we can say that it is divisible by 5.

For questions 28 to 30: 28. a The ratio of Total Revenue to Total cost for

30. b

Let the total number of couriers be 360N while the Total Cost be 360C for ABC Ltd. in the year 2006. So the cost per courier for: Road transport = Rail transport =

10R Air transport = 11C Where R is the Revenue Generated of the company. C is the Total Cost of the company. R If the profit% of the company is 20%, then = 1.2 C So Total Revenue / Total Cost, for couriers sent through Air transport
=

90C 0.75C = . 120N N

10 1.2 = 1.0909 11

198C 2.2C = . 90N N It is clear from the above that the Road transport has the least cost of transport per courier.
Air transport =

Hence, the profit% for couriers sent through Air transport = 9.09% 29. d Let the Total Cost be 360C while the Revenue Generated be 360R for ABC Ltd. in the year 2006. Profit generated by: Road transport = 72R 72C. Rail transport = 108R 90C. Air transport = 180R 198C. The profit generated is a function of R and C whose value are not known. So the answer cannot be determined.
