**ANSWERS WITH EXPLANATION**

**Answer1: B) 30****Explanation:**

Total age increased = (8 * 2) years = 16 years.

Sum of ages of two new men = (21 + 23 + 16) years = 60 years

The average age of two new men = (60/2) years = 30 years.**Answer2: A) 77****Explanation:**

Product of numbers = 11 x 385 = 4235

Let the numbers be 11a and 11b . Then , 11a x 11b = 4235 => ab = 35

Now, co-primes with product 35 are (1,35) and (5,7)

So, the numbers are ( 11 x 1, 11 x 35) and (11 x 5, 11 x 7)

Since one number lies 75 and 125, the suitable pair is (55,77)

Hence, required number = 77**Answer3: B) 150****Explanation:**

Suppose there are all the pigeons then the total no of heads is 340 and the total no of legs is 680.

Now, since 380 (1060-680) legs are extra, it means there will be 190 (380/2) rabbits. As we know a rabbit has two extra legs than that of a pigeon.

Therefore, number of rabbits =190

and number of pigeons = 340- 190 = 150**Answer4: A) 7/18****Explanation:**

Clearly, n(S) = 6 x 6 = 36

Let E be the event that the sum of the numbers on the two faces is divided by 4 or 6.

Then,E = {(1,3),(1,5),(2,2),(2,4),(2,6),(3,1),(3,3),(3,5),(4,2),(4,4),(5,1),(5,3),(6,2),(6,6)}

n(E) = 14.

Hence, P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 14/36 = 7/18**Answer5: A) 5****Explanation:**

The pattern is -45, -35, -25, -15

The next number = 20-15= 5**Answer6: C) 166252****Explanation:**

Given 92613 x 62742241 = ? + 89

Using unit digit method,

On LHS,

1 x 1 x 1 = 1

sqrt of last digit 1 => it must end with either 9 or 1

so now

1 x 1 = 1

1 x 9 = 9

On RHS,

? + 89

=> ? = ...1 - 89 = last digit is 11- 9 = 2

or

=> ? = ...9 - 89 = last digit is 9 - 9 = 0

Here in the options last digit 2 is option C.**Answer7: B) 120****Explanation:**

Other side = [(17 x 17) - (15 x 15)] = (289 - 225) = 8m

Area = 15 x 8 =120 sq. m**Answer8: D) 750****Explanation:**

Let C.P be Rs. x

900 - x = 2(x - 450) => x = Rs.600

C.P = 600 gain required is 25%

S.P = [(100+25) x 600] / 100 = Rs.750**Answer9: C) 37****Explanation:**

Let the ten's digit be x. Then, unit's digit = 2x + 1.

[10x + (2x + 1)] - [{10 (2x + 1) + x} - {10x + (2x + 1)}] = 1

<=> (12x + 1) - (9x + 9) = 1 <=> 3x = 9, x = 3.

So, ten's digit = 3 and unit's digit = 7. Hence, original number = 37.**Answer10: D) 12, 24, 36****Explanation:**

Let the required numbers be x, 2x, 3x. Then, their H.C.F =x. so, x= 12

Therefore, The numbers are 12, 24, 36.
