151. The direct distance between City A and City B is 300 miles. The direct distance between city B and City C is 400 miles. What could be the direct distance between city C and City A?

151. The direct distance between City A and City B is 300 miles. The direct distance between city B and City C is 400 miles. What could be the direct distance between city C and City A?

a. Between 100 and 700 b. Less than 100 c. More than 900 d. More than 700

Ans: . There are two possibilities with the given data.

So answer is : a. Between 100 and 700

152. If the curved surface area of a cone is twice that of another cone and slant height of the second cone is twice that of the first. Find the ratio of the area of their bases.

a. 2:3 b. 1:4 c. 4:1 d. 16:1

Ans: Curved surface area of a cone = Pi * r * l;

2/1=(r1*1)/ (r2 * 2) so r1/r2 = 4/1

Answer: 4:1

153. What is the least number which when divided by 3,8,11,21 and 27 leaves a remainder of 5 in each case

a. 149688 b. 16637 c. 125466 d. 1253

Lcm of (3,8,11,21,27) = 16632

Add 5 to 16632 = 16637

154. (x

^{4}+1/x^{4}) = 14 then (x-1/x)^{2}is
a. -2 b. 2 c. 4 d.-4

Ans: 2

155. A cone of slant height 20 cm has a curved surface area of 880 cm2. Determine the base radius of the cone.

Curved surface area of a cone = Pi * r * l;

880= (22/7) * r * 20

So r = 14

156. The ratio of three numbers is 4:5:6 and sum of their squares is 7700. What is the sum of the numbers.

a. 100 b. 90 c. 120 d. 150

let the numbers be 4k,5k,6k

Sum of their squares is 7700

16k

^{2 }+ 25k^{2}+36k^{2}=7700
K=10

Sum of their numbers= 4k+5k+6k = 15k = 150

Ans: 150

157. Two cone have their heights in the ratio 2:1 and their base radius in the ratio 1:4 . what will be their volumes ratio?

a. 2:1 b. 3:2 c. 2:3 d. 1:2

cone volume = (1/3) * Pi * r * r * h

So volumes ratio = 1:8

158. if m=2-√3 then (m

^{6}+m^{4}+ m^{2}+1)/m^{3}is
Apply denominator to individual terms then give equation becomes

m

^{3}+m+1/m+ 1/m^{3}
1/m= 2+√3

Ans: 56

159. Anitha has 3 novels and 4 dictionaries. Determine the number of ways in which all 7 books can be arranged on the shelf so that the books of the same kind must be kept together.

a. 2120 b. 288 c. 144 d. 5040

Assume 3 novels as object-A and 4 dictionaries as object-B

Now keeping together means…

We can arrange A and B in two ways

A contains 3 novels, we can arrange 3! Ways internally

B contains 4 Dictionaries, we can arrange 4! Ways internally

So total= 2*3! * 4! = 288 ways

160. A container contains a mixture having orange juice, pine apple juice and water in the ratio ½ : 1/3: 1/5. What is the approximate percentage of pine apple in the container?

a. 20% b. 32% c. 30% d. 36%

Ans: lcm of (2,3,5) = 30

Multiply ratios with 30

15: 10: 6

Pineapple percentage = (6/31) * 100 = 20%
