1. Find the odd no: 2,3,12,36,86,167
Sol:  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 37-12=25 =>5^2=25
86-36=50 => Similary 86-37=49 =>7^2=49
167-86=81 =>9^2=81

2.   8,12,24,60,... what is the next number?
Sol:  12-8=4;                        24-12=12;            60-24=36...
the difference like this 4*3=12,12*3=36 then next 36*3=108.so the answer is 108+60=168.

3. 3,7,10,11,12,17,? find out next number?
Sol:   sum of alternates -1 equal to next alternate number.
3+10-1=12;                          7+11-1=17;                          so the next number will be 10+12-1=21

4. Cost price of 4 calculators and 2 pencil is 6200. What is the cost of ten calculators and five pencils.
Sol: C+2P=6200-->2C+P=3100
SO 10C+5P=5(2C+P)=5(3100)=15,500 RS

5. 12 men can complete work in 6 days whereas 10 men and 21 women take 3 days to finish the same work .in how many days can 12 women alone complete.
Sol:  10 men's, 1 day work=10/(12*6)=5/36
If 21 women's, 1 day work= 21/W ,then
3[(5/36)+(21/W)]= 1 ,On solving, W=108
So, 12 women can complete the work in 108/12=9 days

6. 2718/14  find the remainder value?
Sol: Any number of the form (a*x-1)^n /a the remainder will be +1 if the power n is even.
and the remainder will be -1 or (a-1) if the power is odd. According to this the remainder will be 1

7. What is the probability of getting a odd sum when two dice are thrown.
Sol: odd numbers 3,5,7,9,11(between 2(min sum)-12(max sum))
cases:-  3-(1,2),(2,1)                                        5-(3,2),(2,3),(4,1),(1,4)                   7-(1,6),(6,1),(2,5),(5,2),(3,4),(4,3)
9-(3,6),(4,5),(5,4),(6,3)                                   11-(5,6),(6,5)
total cases=18                                   therefore probability=18/36=>1/2

8. If log(p+q)(p-q)= -1;                   then find the value of: log(p+q)(P2-q2)
Sol: log(p+q)(p2-q2)=log(p+q)2(p-q)=log(p+q)2  + log(p-q) = 2 log(p+q) + log(p-q) = log(p+q)+log(p+q)+log(p-q)
log(p+q)-1= log(p+q)-log 10= log (p+q)/10;

9. If peacock = 11526312316 then feather=

and 2nd letter is decoded on the position of letter in alphabetic order in peacock
p=11      e=5        a=26      c=3         o=12      c=3         k=16
so, feather
f=21       e=5        a=26      t=20       h=19      e=5        r=9
Ans: 21526201959

10. Find the number of consecutive zeros at the end of 72!
Sol: By using formula round(n/5)+round(n/25)+..........round(n/5^n)
round(72/5)+round(72/25)=14+2=16
11. Find the maximum value of n such that 77! is perfectly divisible by 720^n
Sol: 720 = (2^4) x (3^2) x (5)
Number of twos in 77! is:             38 + 19 + 9 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 73
So number of 2^4 will be: = 18
Similarly, Number of threes in 77! is:
25 + 8 + 2 = 35
So number of 3^2 will be: = 17
and number of fives will be:
= 15 + 3 = 18
Hence the number of 720s that we can obtain is 17.

12. Some persons can do a piece of work in 12 days. Two times the number of such persons will do half of that work in:
Sol: 3 days

13. If log102 = 0.3010, what is the number of digits in 264

18. What is the remainder when 1723 is divided by 16?
a. 1         b.0          c.2          d.3
Sol:  Apply bionomial theorem. 17 can be written as (16+1)
similarly 1723= (16+1)23
expand above equation using bionomial theorem then we get 24 terms, in that 23 terms contain 16x as one term for x>0; 24th term will be 24c24 124 =1  when you divide 1 with 16 you get 1 as remainder.

19. antilog10100
Sol: All you need to know is that AntiLog(X) = 10x.
so ans is 10^(10100)

20. Four bells begin to toll together and then each one at intervals of 6 s, 7 s, 8 s and 9 s respectively. The
number of times they will toll together in the next 2 hr is:
Sol: lcm of 6,7,8,9=504 sec;                                          in 2 hrs =3600*2 sec
so no times they will ring =3600*2/504==14 times
21. The students are in the ratio 2:3:5.if 20 students are increased in each batch the ratio changes to 4:5:7
The total number of students in the three batches before the increase was
Sol: Let number of students be x
2x+20 : 3x+20 : 5x+20 = 4:5:7 --> x = 10
Initially the number of the students would be 20,30 and 50 --> 100 ans

22. sum of money doubles itself in 9 years, in how many years it will become 8 times itself?

23. What is the smallest four-digit number which when divided by 6, leaves a remainder of 5 and when
divided by 5 leaves a remainder of 3?
1. 1043                  2. 1073                  3. 1103                  4.None of these
Sol: ans is none of these because :
let us assume the smallest 4 digit number be 1000 if we divide it with 6 we get remainder 4 so to get a rem of 5 add 1 to it => 1001.
Then the general form of a number is 1001+6k for every positive integer value of k it always yields rem 5 when divided by 6
then by trail and error if we take k=2 then number is 1013
which when divided by 5 gives a rem of 3
so the right ans is 1013 which is none of these from options

24. A, B, C started a business with their investments in the ratio 1:3:5. After 4 months, A invested the double  amount as before and B as well as C withdrew half of their investments. The ratio of their profits at the end of the year is:
Sol: Let their initial investments be x, 3x and 5x respectively. Then,
A : B : C = (x * 4 + 2x * 8) : (3x * 4 + 3x/2 * 8 ) : (5x * 4 + 5x/2 * 8)
= 20x : 24x : 40x = 5 : 6 : 10.

65. A ,B, C are three students who attend the same tutorial classes. If the Probability that on a particular day exactly one out of A and B attend the class is 7/10,Exactly one out of B and C attends is 4/10 exactly one out of A and C attends is 7/10.if the probability that all the three attend the class is 9/100 then find the probability that all at least one attends the class.
Sol: Probability(at least one attending ) = 1- Probability(none attending)
Let the Probability of A,B,C attending the class be a,b,c
So not attending will be 1-a,1-b,1-c
Exactly one of A,B
a(1-b) + b(1-a) = 7/10
a+b -2ab =7/10

B,C
b(1-c)+c(1-b) = 4/10
b+c -2bc =4/10

C,A
a(1-c) + c(1-a) =7/10
c+a -2ac=7/10

2(a+b+c) - 2(ab+bc+ca) = 18/10
a+b+c -ab -bc-ca =9/10

P(atleast one ) = 1 - P(none)
1 - [ (1-a)(1-b)(1-c)]
