A can contains a mixture of two liquids A and B in the ratio 7:5. When 9 litres of mixture are drawn off and the can is filled with B, the ratio of A and B becomes 7:9. How many litres of liquid A was contained by the can initially ?
Option 1 : 10 Option 2 : 20 Option 3 : 21 Option 4 : 25
Let total liquid = x
a = 7x/12
b = 5x/12
when 9 litre is drawn
a=(7(x-9))/12
b=(5(x-9))/12
Than 9 litre of b is added
hence, b = (5(x-9))/12 + 9
Now a:b = 7:9
Hence ->
((7(x-9))/12) / ((5(x-9))/12 + 9) = 7/9
x = 31
Hence, a = 7.36/12 = 21
A man bought a number of clips at 3 for a rupee and an equal number at 2 for a rupee. At what price per dozen should he sell them to make a profit of 20% ?

Geetika writes a piece of code, where a set of eight lines occur around 10 times in different parts of the program (Code
A). She passes on the code to Deva. Deva puts the set of eight lines in a function definition and calls them at the 10
points in the program (Code B). Which code will run faster using an interpreter?
Option 1 : Code A
Option 2 : Code B
Option 3 : Code A and Code B will run with the same speed
Option 4 : None of these
I think code A. this is a case of function vs macro.
in code A the space occupied in memory will be larger but the code will run faster and in B code space will be same, but the time taken to execute will be more.
Diesel costs Rs.4per lit and petrol costs5.23 per litre.If the price of diesel rise by 10% a month and the price of petrol is unchanged.How many months will it take untill a litre of Diesel costs more thatn a litre of petrol.
Answer is 3 Months.
In the First Month the price of the diesel would be 4*110/100 = 4.4
In the Second Month the price of the diesel would be 4.4*110/100 = 4.84
In the Third Month the price of the diesel would be 4.84*110/100 = 5.324 which is higher than the price of the patrol!
What does this function compute for positive n?
function f(int n)
{
if (n equals 1)
{ return 1 }
else
{ return f(n-1)/f(n-1) + n }
}
Option 1 : 1 + n
Option 2 : 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + n
Option 3 : 1 + n, if n > 1, 1 otherwise
Option 4 : None of the above
option 3 : suppose n=2 the it will return f(2-1)/f(2-1)+2 i.e. f(1)/f(1) +2 which implies 1 +2 ..
similarly in case of n >1 say 3 we get 1+3...
so the ans is 1+n ,if n>1 ,otherwise 1
what is the least amount that a person can have, such that when he distributes it into groups of rs 16 or rs 18 or rs 20 or rs 25, he is always left with rs 4?
a)rs 1796
b) rs 1804
g)rs 2596
d)3604
ans is d)3604
the amount is 4 greater than the lcm of 20 25 16 and 18
so the lcm is 3600.
so the amount is 3604

A sorting algorithm iteratively traverses through a list to exchange the first element with any element less than it. It then
repeats with a new first element. What is this sorting algorithm called?
Option 1 : insertion sort
Option 2 : selection sort
Option 3 : heap sort
Option 4 : quick sort
It is Insertion Sort:
selection sort searches for the minimum element in the list then replaces with the first element:
Insertion sort is the one which selects first element and replaces with the next element less than it!!

Q5. Any program residing in the memory contains a set of instructions that need to be executed by the computer in a sequential manner. This cycle for every instruction is known as the instruction cycle. The cycle consists of the following steps which may or may not be the proper sequence of the execution.
1. Fetch the operand from the memory
2. Execution
3. Fetch instruction
4. Decode the instruction
5. Result
In which of the following steps, is the Program Counter(PC) loaded with the address of the next instruction?
o 5.2
o 6.2
o 7
o 8
o Execution
o Fetch instruction
o Decode the instruction
o Result
it is case of subroutine in program when we call the SB for execute the instr..then PC is set on the stack for fetching the next instruction

6,3,18,36... next digit of no;

6+3 = 9+9 =18
6+3+18 = 27+9 =36
6+3+18+36=63+9 =72
find the odd no:2,3,12,36,86,167
given series. 2,3,12,36,86,167
now,
3-2=1 => 1^2=1
12-3=9 => 3^2=9
36-12=24 => here if we change 36 into 37 then 36-12=25 =>5^2=25
86-36=50 => Similary 86-37=49 =>7^2=49
167-86=81 =>9^2=81
so answer will be 36.

the condition is
for i=0 to n increment 1
so in first loop ll take i=0
now, for j=0 to i increment
now j=0
now i-j=1
then print 1 else 10
so here i-j=0-0=0,therefore ll print 10
then in second loop i=1 nd j=0,1 coz we hav to take from 0 to i
so here for j=0, i-j=1-0=1 and for j=1.i-j=1-1=0
therefore ll print 110
and so on and the answer is option (e)
