**DIRECTIONS for questions 1 and 2**: These questions are based on the following data.

Rama went to the market and bought some apples, mangoes and bananas. He bought 42 fruits in all. The number of bananas is less than half the number of apples; the number of mangoes is more than one-third the number of apples and the number of mangoes is less than three-fourths the number of bananas.

(1) 20 (2) 23 (3) 26 (4) 28

2. How many bananas did Rama buy?

**DIRECTIONS for questions 3 to 5**: These questions are based on the data given below.

Everyday, Saddam, the office attender fetches water for the office in container A which has certain rated capacity.

However, because of a dent at the bottom of the container, only 80% of the rated capacity of the container can be used to fill water. This water is transferred periodically into a smaller container B - for people in the office to use this water for drinking. There is an outlet (a faucet) in B from which water is let out. Since the faucet is fixed at a level above the base of B, water upto 10% of the rated capacity of B cannot be let out through the faucet. Everyday in the morning, after Saddam fetches water in container A, he cleans B and fills B to the brim by pouring water from A into B. Whenever the water level falls to the faucet level in B, he again fills B to the brim by pouring water from A into B. The questions in this set are independent of each other.

3. On a particular day, Saddam finds that he filled B five times (including the first time) and at the end of the day, A was empty. The water level in B reached the faucet level. What is the ratio of the rated capacities of A and B?

(1) 4.6 : 1 (2) 5 : 1 (3) 5.75 : 1 (4) 6.25 : 1

4. If Saddam gets the dent in container A removed (so that water can be fetched in this container to its rated capacity) how many times can he fill container B (including the first time in the morning) given that the rated capacities of the two containers are in the ratio 10 : 1?

(1) 9 times (2) 10 times (3) 12 times (4) 11 times

5. Saddam gets the dent in container A removed. He also gets the faucet in container B refixed so that all the water filled into B can be used. He keeps filling B from A everytime B gets emptied. After he pours out water from A into B the last time (i.e., A gets emptied), what percentage of B is empty? The ratio of the rated capacities of A and B is 7.5 : 1?

(1) 0% (2) 331/3% (3) 25% (4) 50%

**DIRECTIONS for questions 6 and 7**: These questions are based on the following data.

Amar, Akbar and Anthony sold their three cycles manufactured in different years to Mr.Kishanlal. Mr.Kishanlal gave a total of Rs.1700 to the three and said that Amar should get about one-half of the total amount as his cycle was used less. Akbar’s cycle being used more than Amar’s, he should get about one-third of the total amount and the last one gets about one-ninth. Each individual gets his amount only in denominations of Rs.100.

6. What is the difference between the amounts received by Amar and Anthony?

(1) Rs.900 (2) Rs.700 (3) Rs.800 (4) Rs.600

7. The amount that Amar has is how much more than what Akbar and Anthony together have?

(1) Rs.200 (2) Rs.300 (3) Rs.100 (4) Rs.400

**Directions for questions 8 to 12**: Select the correct alternative from the given choices.

8. A, B and C start running simultaneously from the points P, Q and R respectively on a circular track. The distance (when measured along the track) between any two of the three points P, Q and R is L and the ratio of the speeds of A, B and C is 1 : 2 : 3. If A and B run in opposite directions while B and C run in the same direction, what is the distance run by C before A , B and C meet for the first time?

(1)10/3L (2)11/3 L

(3) All three of them will never meet. (4) Cannot be determined

9. A circle of radius 1cm circumscribes a square. A dart is thrown such that it falls within the circle. What is the

15. A baker had a certain number of boxes and a certain number of cakes with him. Initially he distributed all the cakes equally among all the boxes and found that there was no cake left without a box.
