Q11.
The ratio of the adjacent angles of a parallelogram is 7 : 8. Also, the ratio of the angles of quadrilateral is 5 : 6 : 7 : 12. What is the sum of the smaller angle of the parallelogram and the second largest angle of the quadrilateral ? 
1) 136° 2) 156°
3) 168° 4) 208°
5) None of these
Answer : 168°
Explanation :
Sum of the adjacent angles of a parallelogram is 180°.
Smaller angle of the parallelogram = 7/15 × 180 = 84°
Second largest angle of the quadrilateral = 7/30 × 360 = 84°
Required sum = 84 + 84 = 168°

The smallest side of a right-angled triangle is 8 cm less than the side of a square of perimeter 56 cm. The second largest side of the right-angled triangle is 4 cm less than the length of the rectangle of area 96 sq cm and breadth 8 cm. What is the largest side of the right-angled triangle ? 
1) 10 cm 2) 12 cm
3) 15 cm 4) 18 cm
5)None of these
Answer : 10 cm
Explanation :
Side of the square = 56/4 = 14 cm
smallest side of the triangle = 14 – 8 = 6 cm
Length of the rectangle = 96/ 8 = 12 cm
Second largest side of the triangle = 112 – 4 = 8 cm
So, Largest side of the triangle =  square root of 62 + 82  = 10 cm

In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘PREVIOUS’ be arranged in such a way that the vowels always come together?
1) 2420 2) 2880
3) 3260 4) 4840
5)None of these
Answer : 2880
Explanation :
Treating the group of four vowels (E, I O and U) as one distinct letter then total number of letters will be 8 - 4 + 1 = 5 [i.e. P, R, V, S and (E, I, O, U)].
The five letters can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways The vowels among themselves can be arranged in 4! = 24 ways,
The letters of the word ‘PREVIOUS’ can be arranged in 120 × 24 = 2880 ways such that vowels always come together.

3) Rs.6090 4) Rs. 7500
5)None of these
Answer : Rs.6090
Explanation :
Short- Cut Methods:

C.P = 600/(25-15) x 100 = 6000 

So, S.P  = 6000 x 115/100 = Rs.6900

A milkman buys some milk. If he sells it at rupees 16 a liter, he losses 600 rupees but when he sells it at 20 a liter, he gains 600 rupees. How much milk did he purchase ?
1) 200 litre 2) 250 litre
3) 300 litre 4) 400 litre
5)None of these
Answer : 300 litre
Explanation : Let, the milkman buy x liter of milk.
He sells at at rupees 16 a liter.
SP1 = Rs.16x, but losses Rs.600/
If he sells at 20 a liter, the SP2  = Rs.20x , but gains Rs.600/ 
Difference in SP = Rs.20x - Rs.16x = Rs.4x
Difference in actual SP = Rs.600 + Rs.600 = Rs.1200
So, 4x = 1200
or x = 1200/4 = 300
