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%
