Q1. In a triangle with integer side lengths, one side is three times as long as a
second side, and the length of the third side is 15. What is the greatest possible
perimeter of the triangle?
(a) 43
(b) 44
(c) 45
(d) 46
1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Lets us assume that 1st side is a, second is b and third is c.
For perimeter to be maximum c should not be the largest side (see the qn).
Let us assume that a is the smallest side (you can assume b also to be the smallest side). So b is the largest
side, It is also given that 3a = b
Now 15 + a > b b a < 15 3a a < 15 2a < 15
So maximum vlaue of a = 7 (integer value)
Hence maximum perimeter = 7 + 21 + 15 = 43 untis

Q1. How many men were working on the day the project was completed as per the date
of client wanted to complete it?
(a) 5
(b) 10
(c) 20
(d) 14
(e) None of these
ANS(c); Total work = 5 20 = 100 man- days.
Let the client needed to complete it in n days then
Hence, in 8 days all the work will be completed as per the requirement of client.
And on the 8th day 20 men were working.
Q2. Find the number of days in which client wanted to complete his work.
(a) 15
(b) 10
(c) 8
(d) cant be determined
(e) None of these
ANS(c); It requires total 8 days by adding the work force successively.
Q3. If the work was further increased by 50% but the contractor continues to increase the
5 workers on every 2 days then how many more days are required over the initial time
specified by the client?
(a) 1 days

(b) 2 days
(c) 5 days
(d) cant be determined
(e) None of these
ANS (b); Total work = 100 + 50 = 50 man-days
In 8 days 100 man days work has been completed. Now on 9th and 10th day there
will be 25 workers. So in 2 days they will complete additional 50 man days work.
Thus the work requires 2 more days.
Q4. A tank is connected with 8 pipes. Some of them are inlet pipes and rest work as
outlet pipes. Each of the inlet pipe can fill the tank in 8 hours. Individually, while each of
those that empty the tank i.e., outlet pipe, can empty it in 6 hours individually. If all the
pipes are kept open when the tank is full, it will take exactly 6 hours for the tank to empty.
How many of these are inlet pipes?
(a) 2
(b) 4
(c) 5
(d) 6
(e) None of these
ANS (b); Let there be n inlet pipes then there must be(8-n)outlet pipes.
Therefore (8-n) 1/6-n(1/8)=1/6n=4
Q5. A tank has two inlet pipes which can fill the empty tank in 12 hours and 15 hours
working alone and one outlet pipe which can empty the full tank in 8 hours working
alone. The inlet pipes are kept open for all the time but the outlet pipe was opened after 2
hours for one hour and then again closed for 2 hours then once again opened for one
hour. This pattern of outlet pipe continued till the tank got completely filled. In how many
hours the tank has been filled, working on the given pattern?
(a) 8 hours 24 minutes
(b) 10 hours 15 minutes
(c) 9 hours 10 minutes
(d) 9 hours 6 minutes
(e) None of these

Direction for question number (Q. 6 7) :8 men and 5 women working 6 hours a day can
compelte a work in 4 days. Also 4 men and 5 women working for 8 hours a day can complete
the same job in 5 days. Similarly 5 boys working 8 hours a day can complete the same job in 30
Q6. If 4 men, 3 women and 4 boys worked together every day for 5 hours, then in how
many days they have completed the work?
(a) 3
(b) 4
(c) 8
(d) 6
(e) None of these
ANS (c) Now, substituting the value M by W, we get total work done
Work = (8 2.5 + 5) 6 4 = 600 women days hours
= 240 man days hours
Again work = 5 8 30 = 1200 boy days hours
1M = 2.5 W = 5B
4M + 3W + 4B = 30 boys
Required number of days = 12000/(30*5) = 8 days
Q7. If woman and children (boys) cant be employed, then minimum how many men are
required to complete the job in 6 days if the working hours per day cannot exceed 9?
(a) 4
(b) 5
(c) 6
(d) 7
(e) None of these
ANS(b); 96M =240
M = 4.4 men
Therefore, minimum 5 men are required.
