Question of the day:
A reduction of 10% in the price of wheat enables a man to buy 50 gram of wheat more for a rupee. How much wheat could originally be had for a rupee ?
(A) 400 grams
(B) 500 grams
(C) 450 grams
(D) 350 grams

View Answer

Answer: (C) 10% reduction in price
=> 11.11% increase in quantity
(when expenditure is constant)
A.T.Q,
11.11% of original amount of wheat = 50 gm
=> Original amount (ie.100%) of wheat
= (50 × 9) gm
= 450 gm

Question of the day 22-7-2014


Question of the day:
A man sells an article at 5% above its cost price. If he had bought it at 5% less than what he paid for it and sold it for Rs. 2 less, he would have gained 10%. Find the cost price of the article.
(A) Rs 500 (B) Rs 360
(C) Rs 425 (D) Rs 400

View Answer

Answer: (D) Let the C.P. = x
So, S.P. in 1st case = 1.05x
now, C.P. in 2nd case = 0.95x
and S.P. in 2nd case = 1.05x – 2
Now, A.T.Q. 0.95x × 1.1 = 1.05 x – 2
or, 1.045x = 1.05x – 2
=> 1.05x – 1.045x = 2
=> 0.005x = 2
=> x= 2/0.005= 400

The price of sugar falls by 20%. How much sugar can be bought now with the money that was sufficient to buy 20 kg of rice previously ?
(A) 5 kg
(B) 15 kg
(C) 25 kg
(D) 30 kg

View Answer

Answer: (C) 20% decrease in price
=> 25% increase in consumption
(when expenditure is constant)
=> increased amount of sugar = 25% of 20kg
= 5 kg
=> Total amount now of sugar = (20 + 5) kg
= 25 kg

Question of the day:
Question asked in CAT exam:
P, Q and R are three consecutive odd numbers in ascending order. If the value of three times P is 3 less than two times R, find the value of R.

a. 5
b. 7
c. 9
d. 11

View Answer

Answer: c As P, Q and R are consecutive odd numbers,
Q = P + 2 and R = P + 4. Now 3P = 2(P + 4) – 3.
On solving this equation, we get P = 5.
Therefore, R = 5 + 4 = 9

Question of the day 15-7-2014


Question of the day:
The average marks of a student in 10 papers are 80. If the highest and the lowest scores are not considered, the average is 81. If his highest score is 92, find the lowest.

a. 55
b. 60
c. 62
d. Cannot be determined

View Answer

Answer: b Total marks scored by the student in 10 papers = (80 × 10) = 800. If we exclude the papers in which he scored the highest and the lowest marks, then the total marks scored by him in remaining 8 papers = (81 × 8) = 648. Hence, his total in these two papers in which he scored the highest and the lowest marks = (800 – 648) = 152. Since his highest score is 92, his lowest score is (152 – 92) = 60.

Question of the day 14-7-2014


Question of the day:
P and Q are two positive integers such that PQ = 64. Which of the following cannot be the value of P + Q?
a. 20 b. 65 c. 16 d. 35

View Answer

Answer: d If we were to express 64 as product of two positive integers, we can get the following combinations:
(64 × 1), (32 × 2), (16 × 4), (8 × 8).
Thus, we find that P + Q cannot be 35.

Question of the day 13-7-2014
