Solution:

 

Oops! Wrong answer!

Only Part B is correct.
Part A is wrong because, ‘seize’, although a legitimate word, is not the correct word that needs to be used here. The correct word is ‘cease’. ‘Ceasefire’ is a temporary suspension of fighting; a truce.
Part C is wrong because, once we have used the article ‘a’ everything needs to be singular. So ‘reviews’ is wrong. We must use ‘review.’
Part D is wrong because, we can’t use ‘lasted’ here. If we continue reading the sentence into the ‘Part E’ we will find that the connection between D and E is not correct. It is because of the word ‘lasted.’ Lasted is used to mean ‘duration’ of something. Here it doesn’t make sense. The correct word is ‘last’ which combines well with ‘year’ to mean ‘last year.’

The United Nation’s mission (A)/ in Afghanistan welcomed the offering (B)/ and said it strongly supports (C)/ the vision for peace throughout (D)/ intra-Afghan dialogue.

Solution:

 

Oops! Wrong answer!

Only Part C is correct.
Part A is wrong because ‘United Nations Mission’ is the name of an institution. There is no need to use an ‘apostrophe.’ Also it doesn’t make sense, when we say ‘United Nation’s mission welcomed.’ A mission can’t welcome or denounce anything.
Part B is wrong because the word ‘offering’ used in this part of the sentence is wrong. Offering has a completely different meaning. It means ‘a thing offered, especially as a gift or contribution.’ But what we are focussing on in here is an ‘offer’ a peace keeping offer.
Part D is wrong because, peace is achieved ‘through’ dialogue, not ‘throughout’ dialogue. ‘Throughout’ means ‘from beginning to end of an event or period of time.’

Solution:

 

Correct Answer

Only Part A is correct.
Part B is wrong because, we must use ‘ventures’ here. After ‘one of the’, we must always use a plural noun.
Part C is wrong because, the correct phrase is ‘way back’ which means ‘long ago.’
Part D is wrong because, ‘to’ must be used after words like ‘contribute.’ We can’t use ‘on.’

If you wish to success, (A)/ you should use persistency (B)/ as your good friend, experience in your (C)/ reference, prudence as your brother (D)/ and hope as your sentry.

Solution:

 

Oops! Wrong answer!

Only option D is correct.
‘Success’ is a noun. But here we can’t use this form. We must use the verb form. So, option A is wrong
B is wrong because the correct word is ‘persistence.’ It means ‘the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.’
C is wrong because in all other parts of the sentence we can see a pattern or flow of writing the sentence. The idea is to consider various attributes as a friend or reference or brother etc. Here, ‘in your reference’ is wrong in this flow. It should be ‘as your reference.’

Question 11

The batting average of a cricket player for 40 innings is 52 runs. His highest score exceeds his lowest score by 164 runs. If these two innings are excluded, the average of the remaining 38 innings is 49 runs. The lowest score of player is how much?

Solution:

 

Correct Answer

Total score in 40 innings = (40*52) = 2080
Let highest inning be x and lowest inning be y
total score of 38 innings (excluding highest and lowest) = 38*49= 1862
As per statement:
x + y + 1862 = 2080
x + y = 218
x – y = 164 (given)
Solving :
x = 191
y = 27 (lowest score)

Solution:

 

Oops! Wrong answer!

 The capacity of the bucket is 5 litres

So, tap A fills 40 litres water in 24 min.

Tap B fills 80 litres water in 60 min and tap C fills 20 litres water in 20 min

The remaining profit is divided among the three in the ratio of their capitals. At the end of year, the profit of Amit is Rs. 2200 less than the sum of the profits of Bhaskar and Chetan. How much profit Chetan will get?

Solution:

 

Correct Answer

Here, we can see that the capitals of Amit, Bhaskar and Chetan are in the ratio 2: 4: 3 respectively.
Let the total profit be x.
By conditions,

0.8x * 7/9 – [0.8x * 2/9 + 0.2x] =2200

Question 15

Speed of boat in still water is x km/hr and the speed of the stream is y km/hr. It can cover 52 km downstream and 35 km upstream in 9 hours. Find the value of y if the boat can cover 63 km upstream and 78 km downstream in 15 hours

Solution:

 

Correct Answer

Downstream speed of boat = x+y kmph
Upstream speed of boat = x – y kmph
According to the question,
=
Let and
So the equation becomes,
52a+35b=9
52a=9-35b
a=
Also given that
=
So, 78a + 63y=15
=
702-2730b+3276b=780
546b=78
b=
a=
So, x + y = 13 and x – y = 7
So, x = 10 and y = 3
So, the value of y = 3 kmph

So option (e) is the correct answer.
