- [The correct sequence to form a meaningful paragraph is AECBD. A must be the ᳄rst sentence as it talks about India’s diverse and rich built heritage. E should follow A as it explains further what is mentioned in sentence A. B-D makes a combination and D should be the concluding sentence of the paragraph.]
- [The correct sequence to form a meaningful paragraph is CDBAFE. The paragraph is about the Poker Sports League (PSL) and hence it can be easily connected with one another. C must be the first sentence as it gives the inside view of the next statement. D should follow C and B should follow D. A-F makes a combination as they define the rules of the game.]

A. 12 h
B. 16 h
C. 18 h
D. 15 h
- Option B.
15M = 23W = 36B
SO, M1 * D1 * T1 *W1 = M2 * D2 * T2 * W2
151289/4 = ( 10+X) *306 = 8
- Option A.
According to the question- X/ 8 + (X-1)/16 + (X-2)/24 = 1
X = 5 Days.
- Option B.
Work di-one by A and B in 6 days = 6 × [ 1/20 +1/15] = 7/10
Remaining work = 1- 7/10 = 3/10
If C is able to do the work in X days , then
4/20 + 4/X = 3/10 = 40 days
- Option D.
Work done by A in 1 hr = work done by A and C in 1 hr – work done by B and C in 1 hr =
3/8 – ¼ = 1/8
So, work done by A and C in 1 hr = 1/8 +1/6 = 7/24
Hence, A and B complete a piece of work in 24/7 days.
- Option D.
Work done by (P+Q+R) = 1 ………….(i)
Work done by (P+Q) = 19/23 ………….(ii)
Work done by (Q+R) = 8/23 ………….(iii)
FROM (ii) + (iii) – (i) = Q = 19/23 +8/23 – 1 = 4/23
Work of Q = 4/23 ×5750 = 1000
- Option A.
Part of the cistern filled in 2hr by pipe A = 2/3
Part of the cistern filled in 1hr by pipe B = ¼
Total part filled up = 2/3 + ¼ = 11/12
When all pipe open together = 1/3 +1/4 – 1 = – 5/12
So, time take to empty 11/12 part = 11/12 × 12/5 =11/5 hr = 2hr 12 min
Req. time 5 + 2:12 = 7:12 pm
- Option D.
According to the question = work by both = √4×16 = √64 = 8 days
- Option C.
According to the question = 250 2050 = M2 * 10*10 = M2 = 250
- Option A.
( 2M + 5 W ) × 12 = (5M +2W) × 9
2W = 1M
2M+5W = 9W = 9 × 12 = 3 ×D2 = 36 days.
- Option B.
P1 20 9
P2 30 6
Time take to fill 1/3 rd tank = 180 /3× 5 = 4 Hr
After, this actual work done by ( P1 +P2) = (15) – 1/3 (15)
Time taken for fill remaining tank = 180 – 60 /10 = 12 hr
Total time Req. for fill the tank = 4+12 = 16 Hr
