Ans. 175
Relative speed in m/s=40-22=18X5/18=5m/s
Total distance=125+x m
T=1min=60 s
D=sXt
125+x=5X60
x=175

Ques:- Out of 10 persons working on a project, 4 are graduates. If 3 are selected, what is the probability that there is at least one graduate among them?

Out of 10 persons, 4 are graduates; so, (10 – 4) = 6 are under-graduates.

If there is no restriction, any three can be chosen from the ten in (10C3) = 120 ways.

Now, if all three chosen are under-graduates; it can take place in (6C3) = 20 ways.

Therefore, the probability that there will be no graduate among the three chosen = (20 / 120) = (1 / 6).

Therefore, the probability that there will be at least one graduate among the three chosen = {1 – (1 / 6)} = (5 / 6) = 0.8333.

A. 13
B. 15
C. 16
D. 25

G.c.d=num1 *num2/lcm
Num1=20
Gcd=5
Lcm=60
5=(20*num2)/60
Num2= 5*60/20
Num2=15

Ques:- Arun, Kamal and Vinay invested Rs.8000, Rs.4000 and Rs.8000 respectively in a business. Arun left after six months. If after eight months, there was a gain of Rs.4005, then what will be the share of Kamal?
A. Rs. 1780
B. Rs. 1602
C. Rs. 1335
D. Rs. 890

Total inversement =20000
Arun and vinay =40% ,40%
Kamal =20%
8 month gain = 4005
Arun and vinay share of 6 months=1201.5
Kamal share of 6 month = 600.75
Now Arun left, then remaining 2 month’s profits =1001.25
In this case kamal have 33.3% and vinay have remaining percentage of 1001.25
33.3% of 1001.25 is 333.4
Now, total share of kamal is 600.75+333.4=934.16

Ques:- These words follow a logical progression: CODIFYLAMINASTOVERESETJOKULQUIRESWhich one of these comes next?REST, GRAIL, STOIC, ORDEAL
Ques:- A circle and a rectangle have the same perimeter. The sidesof the rectangle are 18 cm and 26 cm. What will be the areaof the circle?

perimeter of rectangle = 2(l+b)
given l abd b as 18 cm and 26 cm
therefore perimeter of rectangle = 2(44)
perimeter of circle = 2*pi*r
given 2*pi*r=2(l+B)
i.e, 2*(22/7)*r= 2(44)
(22/7)*r=44
r=14 cms
area of the circle = pi*r*r
=(22/7)*14*14
