  1. Mola is a digital platform for taxis in a city. It offers three types of rides – Pool, Mini and Prime. The table below presents the number of rides for the past four months. The platform earns one US dollar per ride. What is the percentage share of revenue contributed by Prime to the total revenues of Mola, for the entire duration?
    1. 23.97
    2. 16.24
    3. 38.74
    4. 25.86

    Here,
    Revenue shared by pool = 170 + 320 + 215 + 190 = 895$
    Similarly,
    Revenue shared by mini = 110 + 220 + 180 + 70 = 580$
    and,
    Revenue shared by prime = 75 + 180 + 120 + 90 = 465$
    Now, percentage share of revenue contributed by prime

    =
    465
    = 23.97%
    895 + 580 + 465

    Correct Option: A

    Here,
    Revenue shared by pool = 170 + 320 + 215 + 190 = 895$
    Similarly,
    Revenue shared by mini = 110 + 220 + 180 + 70 = 580$
    and,
    Revenue shared by prime = 75 + 180 + 120 + 90 = 465$
    Now, percentage share of revenue contributed by prime

    =
    465
    = 23.97%
    895 + 580 + 465


  1. Two pipes P and Q can fill a tank in 6 hours and 9 hours respectively, while a third pipe R can empty the tank in 12 hours. Initially, P and R are open for 4 hours. Then P is closed. The total time taken to fill the tank (in hours) is _____.
    1. 13.50
    2. 16.50
    3. 14.50
    4. 15.50

    Here,

    In 1 hr, part of tank filled by P alone is =
    1
    6

    In 1 hr, part of tank filled by Q alone is =
    1
    9

    In 1 hr, part of tank emptied by R is =
    1
    12

    Initially, P and R opened for 4 hr,
    So part of tank filled = 41-1= (4 / 12) = (1 / 3)
    612

    After 4 hr, P is closed and for 6 more hr Q and R are opened.
    So part of tank filled = 61-1= (1 / 6)
    912

    So, total tank filled in 10 hr =
    1
    +
    1
    =
    2 + 4
    =
    1

    63122

    So, remaining 1/2 part of the tank is filled by Q alone
    Now, Q will take 9/2 = 4.5 hr to fill remaining half of the tank.
    Hence, total time taken = 4 + 6 + 4.5 = 14.5 hr

    Correct Option: C

    Here,

    In 1 hr, part of tank filled by P alone is =
    1
    6

    In 1 hr, part of tank filled by Q alone is =
    1
    9

    12

    So part of tank filled = 41-1= (4 / 12) = (1 / 3)
    612

    After 4 hr, P is closed and for 6 more hr Q and R are opened.
    So part of tank filled = 61-1= (1 / 6)
    912

    So, total tank filled in 10 hr =
    1
    +
    1
    =
    2 + 4
    =
    1

    63122

    So, remaining 1/2 part of the tank is filled by Q alone
    Now, Q will take 9/2 = 4.5 hr to fill remaining half of the tank.
    Hence, total time taken = 4 + 6 + 4.5 = 14.5 hr



  1. Fiscal deficit was 4% of the GDP in 2015 and that increased to 5% in 2016. If the GDP increased by 10% from 2015 to 2016, the percentage increase in the actual fiscal deficit is
    1. 25.00
    2. 37.50
    3. 35.70
    4. 10.00

    Let GDP in 2015 be x
    Now, in 2016, GDP will be 1.
    1x Fiscal deficit in 2015 = 0.04 × x
    Fiscal deficit in 2016 = 0.05 × 1.1 x
    Here percentage increase in the actual fiscal deficit

    =0.05 × 1.1x - 0.04 × x× 100 = 37.5%
    0.04x

    Correct Option: B

  1. The product of three integers X, Y and Z is 192. Z is equal to 4 and P is equal to the average of X and Y. What is the minimum possible value of P?
    1. 6
    2. 9.5
    3. 7
    4. 8

  1. View Hint View Answer Discuss in Forum

    Given product of three integers, X.Y.Z = 192
    Given: Z = 4

    ∴ X.Y =
    192
    = 48
    4

    ∵ P =
    X + Y
    2

    Now,
    Possible value of (X, Y) are (48, 1), (24, 2), (16, 3), (12, 4), (8, 6)
    So, (P)min<
    8 + 6
    = 7
    2

    So, min value of P is 7.
