Then, n(S)  = number of ways of drawing 3 balls out of 15   = ^{15}C_{3}   =  (15 x 14 x 13)  (3 x 2 x 1) 
  = 455. 
Let E = event of getting all the 3 red balls. n(E) = ^{5}C_{3} = ^{5}C_{2} =  (5 x 4)  = 10.  (2 x 1) 
P(E) =  n(E)  =  10  =  2  .  n(S)  455  91 

13.  Two cards are drawn together from a pack of 52 cards. The probability that one is a spade and one is a heart, is:  Answer & Explanation Answer: Option D Explanation: Let S be the sample space. Then, n(S) = ^{52}C_{2} =  (52 x 51)  = 1326.  (2 x 1) 
Let E = event of getting 1 spade and 1 heart. n(E)  = number of ways of choosing 1 spade out of 13 and 1 heart out of 13   = (^{13}C_{1} x ^{13}C_{1})   = (13 x 13)   = 169. 
P(E) =  n(E)  =  169  =  13  .  n(S)  1326  102 

14.  Three taps A, B and C can fill a tank in 12, 15 and 20 hours respectively. If A is open all the time and B and C are open for one hour each alternately, the tank will be full in:  Answer & Explanation Answer: Option C Explanation: (A + B)’s 1 hour’s work =   1  +  1   =  9  =  3  .  12  15  60  20 
(A + C)’s hour’s work =   1  +  1   =  8  =  2  .  12  20  60  15 
Part filled in 2 hrs =   3  +  2   =  17  .  20  15  60 
Part filled in 6 hrs =   3 x  17   =  17  .  60  20 
Remaining part =   1 –  17   =  3  .  20  20 
Now, it is the turn of A and B and  3  part is filled by A and B in 1 hour.  20 
Total time taken to fill the tank = (6 + 1) hrs = 7 hrs. 
15.  72519 x 9999 = ?  A.  725117481  B.  674217481  C.  685126481  D.  696217481  E.  None of these   
Answer & Explanation Answer: Option A Explanation: 72519 x 9999  = 72519 x (10000 – 1)   = 72519 x 10000 – 72519 x 1   = 725190000 – 72519   = 725117481. 
 16.  If the number 517 * 324 is completely divisible by 3, then the smallest whole number in the place of * will be:  Answer & Explanation Answer: Option C Explanation: Sum of digits = (5 + 1 + 7 + x + 3 + 2 + 4) = (22 + x), which must be divisible by 3. x = 2.  17.  Simran started a software business by investing Rs. 50,000. After six months, Nanda joined her with a capital of Rs. 80,000. After 3 years, they earned a profit of Rs. 24,500. What was Simran’s share in the profit?  A.  Rs. 9,423  B.  Rs. 10,250  C.  Rs. 12,500  D.  Rs. 10,500 
Answer & Explanation Answer: Option D Explanation: Simran : Nanda = (50000 x 36) : (80000 x 30) = 3 : 4. Simran’s share = Rs.   24500 x  3   = Rs. 10,500.  7 



18.  What is the rate of simple interest?  I.  The total interest earned was Rs. 4000.  II.  The sum was invested for 4 years. 

A.  I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer  B.  II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer  C.  Either I or II alone sufficient to answer  D.  Both I and II are not sufficient to answer  E.  Both I and II are necessary to answer 
Answer & Explanation Answer: Option D Explanation: We know that, R =   100 x S.I.   P x T 
Now, I gives, S.I. = Rs. 4000. II gives, T = 4 years. But, P is unknown. So, we cannot find R. So, given data is insufficient to get R. Correct answer is (D). 19.  How many 4letter words with or without meaning, can be formed out of the letters of the word, ‘LOGARITHMS’, if repetition of letters is not allowed?  Answer & Explanation Answer: Option C Explanation: ‘LOGARITHMS’ contains 10 different letters. Required number of words  = Number of arrangements of 10 letters, taking 4 at a time.   = ^{10}P_{4}   = (10 x 9 x 8 x 7)   = 5040. 


20.  What is the length of a running train P crossing another running train Q?  I.  These two trains take 18 seconds to cross each other.  II.  These trains are running in opposite directions.  III.  The length of the train Q is 180 metres. 

A.  I only  B.  II only  C.  III only  D.  All I, II and III are required  E.  Even with I, II and III, the answer cannot be obtained. 
Answer & Explanation Answer: Option E Explanation: Let the length of the train P be x metres. II. These trains are running in opposite directions. III. Length of the train Q is 180 m. I. Time taken by P to cross Q =  (180 + x)  18 =  (180 + x)  Relative speed  Relative speed 
Thus, even with I, II and III, the answer cannot be obtained. Correct answer is (E).
