Ques:- There are 3 baskets. one of them have apples, one has oranges only and the other has mixture of apples and oranges. The labels on their baskets always lie. (i.e. if the label says oranges, you are sure that it doesn’t have oranges only,it could be a mixture) The task is to pick one basket and pick only one fruit from it and then correctly label all the three baskets.

Take one fruit from box with label mixture. If we see
orange, because the basket lies (it cant have a mixture),
then it has only oranges. The other 2 are labeled apples and
oranges. The one labeled apples,
cannot have oranges inside, cos they are allready been
identified, and because it lies, it cannot have apples either.
So it has a mixture. And we are left with the one labeled
oranges that lies and has apples.

Ques:- Current General Knowledge
Ques:- 1) In a club there are certain no. of males and females. If 15 females are absent then no. of males will be twice that of females. If 45 males are absent then female strength will be 5 times that of males. Find no. of males actually present.

Let the number of males be given the name M.
Let the number of females be given the name F.
If 15 females are absent, then M will be twice that of
present females.
This means that M = 2 * (F – 15)
M = 2 * F – 30.
or 2 * F – M = 30.
Now if in addition to the 15 females being absent, we also
have 45 males being absent,
then this gives the equation,
(F – 15) = 5 * (M – 45)
which simplifies to
F – 15 = 5 * M – 225
5 * M – F = 210
Pulling the equations together, we get
5 * M – F = 210
-M + 2 * F = 30
Multiply the first equation by 2, and keep the second
equation as is.
10 * M – 2 * F = 420
– M + 2 * F = 30
9 * M = 450
M = 50
Calculate F
from – M + 2 * F = 30
-50 + 2 * F = 30
2 * F = 30 + 50
F = 40.
If 15 females are absent, then number of males will be twice
that of females.
40 – 15 = 25.
50 = 2 * 25. Confirmed.
If also 45 males were absent, then female strength would be
5 times that of males.
Female strength is 25 due to the 15 females being absent.
50 – 45 = 5.
25 = 5 * 5. Confirmed.
