6. Tom, Dick and Harry went for lunch to a restaurant. Tom had \$100 with him, Dick had \$60 and Harry had \$40. They got a bill for \$104 and decided to give a tip of \$16. They further decided to share the total expenses in the ratio of the amounts of money each carried. The amount of money which Tom paid more than what Harry paid is

A. 120

B. 36

C. 60

D. 24

Congrats!!
• Correct Answer

Next Question

Wrong Answer
• Correct answer is 36
• Total money they had = 100+60+40=200
• Ratio of expense to Money = 120/200=60
• Tom’s share= 100X0.6=60
• Dick’s share = 60X0.6=36
• Harry’s share = 40X0.6=24

A. 50 m

B. 64 m

C. 72 m

D. 84 m

Congrats!!
• Correct Answer

Next Question

Wrong Answer

Length of AC can be calculated as follows:

DF2=132-122=25 Or, DF=5, So, EC=30-9+5=16

BC2=162+122=400 Or, BC=20

Perimeter=13+30+20+9=72 metre

Next Question

8. Four concentric ( having the same center ) circles with radii, x, 2x, 3x and 4x are drawn to form two rings A and B as shown in the figure. Ratio of the area of inner ring A to the area of outer ring B is

A. 1:2

B. 1:4

C. 2:3

D. 3:7

Congrats!!
• Correct Answer

Next Question

Wrong Answer

Areas of four circles will be in the squared ratio of their radii as follows: 1:4:9:16

Ratio of Area of inner grey ring to that of inner circle = 1:3

Ratio of area of outer grey ring to that of inner circle = 1:7 (16-9=7)

Required ratio = 3:7

• Correct Answer

Next Question

Wrong Answer

Solution:

p=3/6 and q=3/15

So, p-q=3/6-3/15=3/10

Next Question

10. A father is three times as old as his son. After fifteen years the father will be twice as old as his son's age at that time. Hence the father's present age is

A. 36

B. 42

C. 45

D. 48

Congrats!!
• Correct Answer

Next Question

Wrong Answer

Solution:

Options A, B, and D will result in odd numbers after 15 is added to them. So calculate on option C.

Father’s current age = 45, So son’s current age = 15

After 15 years father’s age= 60

Son’s age = 30

This combination matches the condition
