**Q 1.**The value of x + x(x^{x}) when x = 2 is:

**10**
- 16
- 18
- 8
- Answer is: 10

**Solution** with Explanation
- Since, x = 2x

∴ 2 + 2 (2²)

⇒ 2 + 2 (4)

⇒ 2 + 8

⇒ 10

**Q 2. **Sum of two number = 16 and product = 48, find the difference between the two numbers ??

- 4
- 6
**8**
- 10
- Answer is: 8

**Solution** with Explanation
- There are 4 possiblilities :

⇒ 1+15 = 16 but 1*15≠48

⇒ 2+14 = 16 but 2*14≠48

⇒ 3+13 = 16 but 3*13≠48

⇒ 4+12 = 16 and 4*12 = 48. Thus, two numbers are 4 and 12

⇒ Thus, the difference between the two numbers is 12 – 4 = 8

**Q 3. **A man complete a journey in 10 hours. He travels first half of the journey at the rate of 21 km/hr, and second half at the rate of 24 km/hr. Find the total journey in km.

- 220 km
**225 km**
- 230 km
- 234 km
- Answer is: 225 km

**Solution** with Explanation
- The first half of the journey ↔ Speed = 21 km/hr ; time = 5 hours

∴ distance = speed*time = 21*5 = 105 km

The second half of the journey ↔ speed = 24 km/hr ; time = 5 hours

∴ distance = speed*time = 24*5 = 120 km

total journey = 105 + 120 = 225 km

**Q 4.** A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3 : 2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A’s share is Rs. 855, the total profit is:

- Rs. 1425
**Rs. 1500**
- Rs. 1557.50
- 1576
- Answer is: 1500

**Solution** with Explanation
- Let the total profit be Rs. 100.

After paying to charity, A’s share = 95 x 3/5 = Rs. 57.

If A’s share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100.

If A’s share Rs. 855, total profit = 100/57 x 855 = 1500.

960/8 = LCM

LCM = 120

- 8 hours 40 minute
- Answer is: 7 hours 30 minute

**Solution** with Explanation

x hours = 30 KM

(2*30)/8 = 60/8

15/2

7 hours 30 minutes

**Q 8. **If A ={5,6,7} and B = {7,8,9} then A∪B is equal to

**{5,6,7,8,9}**
- {7,8,9}
- {5,6,7}
- ϕ
- Answer is: {5,6,7,8,9}

B = {7,8,9}

A∪B will be the combination of the two, taking elements in common

{5,6,7,8,9}

**Q 9. **Two adjacent angle on a straight line are in the ratio 5 : 4. The measure of each one of these angles are?

**100**^{0}, 80^{0}
- 90
^{0}, 90^{0}
- 110
^{0}, 80^{0}
- 110
^{0}, 70^{0}
- Answer is: 100
^{0}, 80^{0}

**Solution** with Explanation
- Let, the two angles be 5x and 4x

The angle on the straight line is 180°

∴ 5x + 4x = 180°

9x = 180°

x = 20°

Thus, 5*20 = 100°

4*20° = 80°

**Q 10. **2, 9, 28, 65, 126,……

- 129
- 216
**217**
- 178
- Answer is: 217

**Solution** with Explanation
- As, 2 = 1*1*1 + 1

9 = 2*2*2 + 1

28 = 3*3*3 + 1

65 = 4*4*4 + 1

126 = 5*5*5 + 1

the next will be

6*6*6 + 1 = 217

**Q 11. **The surface area of a cube one of whose edge is 9 cm is?

- 486
**729**

**Q 12. **A and B can finish a work together in 12 days, and B and C together in 16 days. If A alone works for 5 days and then B alone continues for 7 days, then remaining work is done by C in 13 days. In how many days can C alone finish the complete work?

- 15 days
**24 days**
- 45 days
- None of these
- Answer is: 24 days

**Solution** with Explanation
- A = 5 days

B works = 7 days

C works = 13 days

A + B = 5 days

∴ They will do 5*4 units/day = 20 units

Now 2 days are left for BB + C = 2 days

∴They will do 2*3 units/day = 6 units

Total job done = 20 units + 6 units = 26 units

Remaining work = 48 units – 26 units = 22 units

total days left for C = 13 days – 2 days = 11 days∴ C does 22 units of work in 11 days

Or, C does 2 units of work in 1 day

Hence time taken by C to complete the whole work = 24 days

**Q 13. **Find x, if 25x – 19 – [ 3 – { 4x – 5 } ] = 3x – (6x – 5)

**x = 1**
- x = -1
- x = 1/2
- x = 2
- Answer is: x = 1

**Solution** with Explanation
- 25x – 19 – [ 3 – { 4x – 5 } ] = 3x – (6x – 5)

25x – 19 – [3 – 4x + 5] = 3x – (6x – 5)

25x – 19 – [8 – 4x] = 3x – (6x – 5)

25x – 19 – 8 + 4x = 3x – 6x + 5)

29x – 27 = -3x + 5

29x + 3x = 27 + 5

32x = 32

x = 32/32

x = 1

**Q 14. **When 35 is added to 5 times a certain number the result is 100, the number is:

- 12
- 65
**13**
- 25
- Answer is: 13

**Solution** with Explanation
- Let the number be x

∴ 35 + 5x = 100

5x = 100 – 35

5x = 65

x = 13

**Q 15. **Kabir buys an article with 50% discount on its marked price. He makes a profit of 10% by selling it at Rs.660. The marked price is :

- 685
- 700
- 600
**800**
- Answer is: 800

**Solution** with Explanation
- Cost price for Kabir = 100/ (100+10)*660 = 600

But this price is what he got after having a discount of 50%. Let the marked price be x.

Then (100 – 25)% of x = 600

x = Rs.800

**Q 18. **The average of 11 results is 30 that of the first five is 25 and that of the last five is 28. The value of the 6th number is

- 64
**65**
- 66
- 45
- Answer is: 65

**Solution** with Explanation
- Average = Sum of numbers/ number of observations

For 11 numbers, sum = 11*30 = 330

For first 5 numbers, sum = 5*25 = 125

For last 5 numbers, sum = 5*28 = 140

∴ 330 – [140+125]

65

**24**
- 48
- 10
- None to these
- Answer is: 24

25*x = 15*40

25*x = 600

x = 600/25

= 24

Sir me army ki race ko 4:50 me kar deta hu.

I’m Vijay Choudhary army jobs

hey Vijay, i did not understand your query. Please be more clear so that i could give you the appropriate answer. Do comment again.

sir army me race ka koi qualify time nahi hai? maine race 6 minute se kam time me kar di thi phi bhi nikaal diya gaya.

Hey Sonu, though the standard time to qualify for soldier clerk is 6:20 minutes (max), but in reality due to the competition. The standard timings are rarely applied.

suppose there are 10 candidates participating in the rally, but there is only 2 vacancies. So, it’s obvious that all 10 candidates can not be selected. So, the two who will perform the best will be selected. Same way they select the best performers in the race.

This concludes that you will need to do better if you want to pass the running test.

What is the running time in army clerk?

Hey Akash, to qualify for the next round, a candidate must complete the race within 6.20 minutes (as per standards).
