• ( 2 ) A printer numbers the pages of a book starting with 1 and uses 3189 digits in all. How many pages does the book have?

• 1) 1080
• 2) 1075
• 3) 1074
• 4) 1000
• Discussion in forum
Answer : 3) 1074
Solution : No. of digits in 1-digit page nos. = 1 * 9 = 9.
No. of digits in 2-digit page nos. = 2 * 90 = 180.
No. of digits in 3-digit page nos. = 3 * 900 = 2700.
No. of digits in 4-digit page nos. = 3189 - (9 + 180 + 2700)
= 3189 - 2889
= 300.
Number of pages with 4-digit page nos. = 300/4
= 75.
Hence total number of pages = (999 + 75) = 1074.

• ( 3 ) The total monthly salary of 4 men and 2 women is Rs. 46,000. If a woman earns Rs. 500 more than a man, what is the monthly salary of a woman?

• 1) 7500
• 2) 6500
• 3) 8000
• 4) 9000
• Discussion in forum
Answer : 3) 8000
Solution : Let the monthly salary of a man be Rs. 'x'.
Then, monthly salary of a woman = Rs. (x + 500).
So, 4x + 2(x + 500) = 46000.
=> 6x + 1000 = 46000
=> 6x = 45000
=> x = 7500.
Monthly salary of a woman = Rs. (x + 500) = Rs. 8000.

• ( 5 ) Income of a company doubles after every one year. If the initial income was Rs. 4 lakhs, what would be the income after 5 years?

• 1) Rs. 2.52 crores
• 2) Rs. 2.56 crores
• 3) Rs. 1.28 crores
• 4) Rs. 1.24 crores
• Discussion in forum
Answer : 3) Rs. 1.28 crores
Solution : Income after 1 year = Rs. (4 * 21) lakhs.
Income after 2 years = Rs. (4 * 2 * 2) = Rs. (4 * 22) lakhs.
So, the income after 5 years = Rs. (4 * 25) lakhs
= Rs. 128 lakhs
= Rs. 1.28 crores.

Answer : 3) Rs. 1.28 crores

• ( 6 ) If 2x + 3y = 31, y - z = 4 and x + 2z = 11, then what is the value of x + y + z?

• 1) 16
• 2) 15
• 3) 13
• 4) 12
• Discussion in forum
Answer : 2) 15
Solution : 2x + 3y = 31-----eq.(1)
y - z = 4------eq.(2)
x + 2z = 11-----eq.(3)
multiplying eq.(3) by 2, we get 2x + 4z = 22 ------eq.(4)
Subtracting eq.(4) from eq.(1), we get 3y - 4z = 9 ------ eq.(5)
By solving eq.(5) and eq.(2), we get y = 7 and z = 3.
Putting y = 7 in eq.(1), we get x = 5.
Now x + y + z = 5 + 7 + 3 = 15.

• ( 9 ) If a * b = a2+2b, what is the value of 'p' if 4 * (3 * p) = 50 ?

• 1) 8
• 2) 12.5
• 3) 4
• 4) 7
• Discussion in forum
Answer : 3) 4
Solution : 3 * p = 32 + 2p = 9 + 2p.
4 * (3 * p) = 50
=> 42 + 2(9 + 2p) = 50
=> 16 + 18 + 4p = 50
=> 34 + 4p = 50
=> 4p = 50 - 34
=> 4p = 16
=> p = 4.

• ( 10 ) If a * b = 2a - 3b + ab, then 3 * 5 + 5 * 3 is equal to:

• 1) 22
• 2) 26
• 3) 28
• 4) 24
• Discussion in forum
Answer : 1) 22
Solution : 3 * 5 = (2 * 3 - 3 * 5 + 3 * 5) = (6 - 15 + 15) = 6.
5 * 3 = (2 * 5 - 3 * 3 + 5 * 3) = (10 - 9 + 15) = 16.
So, 3 * 5 + 5 * 3 = 6 + 16 = 22.
