Question 1 Explanation:

To win the race first, A has to cover (1000 – 280) m = 720m
B covers 4 part of distance when A covers 3 part of it.
So, if A covers 720m, then B covers (4/3 * 720)m i.e. 960m
Hence, A will win the race by 40m.

Question 2 Explanation:

Let the age of youngest brother be x
Then, x + (x + 3) + (x + 6) + (x + 9) + (x + 12) = 100 => 5x = 70 => x = 14
Therefore, age of 2nd most elder brother = 14 + 9 = 23.

Question 3 |

If there are 5 persons who can work individually and complete a work in 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8 hours respectively. If they work together then how much time will it take to finish the work ?

Question 3 Explanation:

In 1 hour, ½ + ¼ + ⅕ +⅙ + ⅛ = 149/120 = 1.24 is the work done.
Hence, total time to complete the work would be = 1/1.24 = 0.80 hours

Question 4 |

If we increase the sides of a rectangular park by 20% , then, what is the total increase in the area of that park ?

21 % | |

33 % | |

42 % | |

44 % |

**GATE 2017 MOCK II**

**Discuss it**

Question 4 Explanation:

Let length of park = L and breadth of park = B
Original Area = BL m2
New Length = 120L/100 = 6L/5
New Breadth = 120B/100 = 6B/5
New Area = 36LB/25 m2
so, Change in area = New – Original = 11LB/25 m2
% increase = Change / original * 100 = 44%

Question 5 Explanation:

Required sum = 3!(3 + 4 + 5 + 6) = 108 [If we fix 3 of the unit place, other three digits can be arranged in ways similarly for 4, 5, 6.]
