c)   9
d)   1/3

b)   3833.6
c)   3388.6
d)   3500

9). [(8 1/3) ÷ (175/27)] / (2 5/14) – (1 1/28) = ?
a)   36/37
b)   35/37
c)   35/36

10). √(0.2304) x0.012x16 =?
a)   0.09467
b)   0.02216
c)   0.9858
d)   0.09565
e)   None of these

1). E)
We have to arrange 3 letters (O, O and K) out of which 'O' occurs two times. So, reqd no. = 3! / 2! = 3 ways

2). E)
The total number of pen drives = 5 + 6 + 4 = 15
n(S)= 15C3 = (15x14x13) / (3×2) = 455
Now, 3 pen drives out of 15 pen drives can be drawn in 455 ways.
If all 3 pen drives are of the same company
It Can be done in 5C3 + 6C3 + 4C3 = 10 + 20 + 4 = 34 ways
Probability that all 3 pen drives are not of the same company = 1 – (34/455) = (421/455)

3). B)
Area of the field
= (Base x Height) / 2 = (660 x 440)/2  sq metre
= (660 x 440)/( 2x100x100) sq metre
= 14.52 sq hectmetres
Cost of watering 1 sq hectometre = Rs.26.5
Cost of watering the field = 26.5 x 14.52 = Rs.384.78

4). A)
Proportion of milk in the mixture =250 x (70/100) = 175gm
Water = 75 gm
After 100 gm water added in mixture the percentage of water = (75 +100) / (250+100) x 100
= (175/350) x 100 = 50%

5). D)
Let the capacity of the tank be 336 litres
LMC of (28, 24 and 16 = 336)
Waste pipe empties the tank in (12 + 14 - 21) 5 litres per minute
Waste pipe empties the tank in (336/5) = 67.2 minutes

6). D)
We know that
a3 + 3ab (a+b) + b3 = (a+b)3
? = [ 3√(2197+3x13x14x27+2744) / (196+364+169)]1/3
= [ 3√(13+14)3 /729]1/3
= (27/729)1/3 = 1/3

7). B)
? = (28/9) × (17/8) × (6/153) × (1 41/45)
= (7/27) + (86/45) = (35 + 258) / 135 = 293/135 = 2 23/135

8). C)
Solving by breaking method,
? = 20% of 3540 + 8% of 3540 + 20% of 4550 + 6% of 4550 + 20% of 5060 + 4% of 5060
= 708 + 283.2 + 910 + 273 + 1012 + 202.4
= 3388.6

9). A)
[(25/3)×(27/175)] / {(2-1) + [(5/14) – (1/28)]}
= (9/7) / {1+ [(10-1)/28] } = (9/7) / (37/28)
= (9/7) × (28/37) = 36/37

10). E)

? = √(0.23.4) x 0.012 x 16 = 0.48 x 0.012 x 16 = 0.09216
