Question 1 of 5

1. Question

How many three-digit numbers can be formed from numbers 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 which are

divisible by 5 or 2 (repetition of numbers is allowed).

Correct

Answer : D

Explanation:

Among given numbers, only when ‘0’ comes at the unit digit, that particular 3 digit number is

divisible by 5. In this condition even that 3 digit number is divisible by 2 also because it ends

with 0.

Now, we can find out the numbers divisible by 2 units place can be occupied by 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8.

Therefore 5 ways Hundred’s place can be occupied by all numbers except ‘0’ i.e., 4 ways

Ten’s place can be occupied by any given number that is, 5 ways.

Therefore, number of numbers with the given condition are,

5×4×5=100.

Incorrect

Answer : D

Explanation:

Among given numbers, only when ‘0’ comes at the unit digit, that particular 3 digit number is

divisible by 5. In this condition even that 3 digit number is divisible by 2 also because it ends

with 0.

Now, we can find out the numbers divisible by 2 units place can be occupied by 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8.

Therefore 5 ways Hundred’s place can be occupied by all numbers except ‘0’ i.e., 4 ways

Ten’s place can be occupied by any given number that is, 5 ways.

Therefore, number of numbers with the given condition are,

5×4×5=100.

Question 2 of 5

2. Question

A pair of dice is thrown simultaneously, find the probability that the sum is obtained 9 when there is an odd number on the first side.

Correct

Answer : D

There are 3 ways the first dice reads odd number i.e. 1, 3 or 5.

When first dice reads, the second dice can read any of the numbers from 1 to 6.

Number of possibilities = 3 × 6 =18.

But the sum of 9 can be obtained on two occasions i.e. (3,6) and (5,4).

Hence, the probability = 2/18 = 1/9.

Incorrect

Answer : D

There are 3 ways the first dice reads odd number i.e. 1, 3 or 5.

When first dice reads, the second dice can read any of the numbers from 1 to 6.

Number of possibilities = 3 × 6 =18.

But the sum of 9 can be obtained on two occasions i.e. (3,6) and (5,4).

Hence, the probability = 2/18 = 1/9.

Question 3 of 5

3. Question

A principle of Rs.1000 is being charged at 50% per annum. What is the interest for

3rd year at compound interest?

Correct

Answer – A

Since compound interest rate is 50%, then the principle will earn half of it every year.

So, simple interest or compound for the first year = 50% of Rs.1000 = Rs.500

Principle for the second year = Rs.1000 + Rs.500 = Rs.1500

Incorrect

Answer – A

Since compound interest rate is 50%, then the principle will earn half of it every year.

So, simple interest or compound for the first year = 50% of Rs.1000 = Rs.500

Principle for the second year = Rs.1000 + Rs.500 = Rs.1500

Question 4 of 5

4. Question

A, B and C invest in the ratio of 3:4:5. The percentage of return on their investments are 6%, 5% and 4% respectively. Find the total earnings, if B earns Rs.250 more than A

Correct

Answer : B

Let the investments of A, B and C be 3x, 4x and 5x respectively.

The earnings of A = 6% of 3x = 0.18x

The earnings of B = 5% of 4x = 0.2x

The earnings of C = 4% of 5x = 0.2x

B earns Rs.250 more than A i.e. 0.2x – 0.18x = 0.02x = Rs.250
