iv. If 2 other gems in one pane, possible combi in the other. I don't remember exactly But ans for the whole question was like

---=====---

1) Ans : 24

Keeping 1 and 6 fixed, we can have two combinations of 6 and 3, and two of 2 and 4 that means four. And interchanging 1 and 6 we can have two more combinations that means with one pair 8 combinations are there : 4*2=8. Similarly with other two also 8 combos. So in all 8*3=24 combos are possible

---=====---

2) Ans:52.5

from Que we find the relation A=((7/3)B-70)

put A=B

A=((7/3)A-70 solving we get A=52.5

---=====---

3) Ans:12 km

Solution: Let plain road = x km

And hill road = y km

x/4 + y/3 + y/6 + x/4 = 6

x/2 + y/2 = 6

? x + y =12

---=====---

4) Ans: 39

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ....

1 2 3 4 ......

let the no. of cards picked be n

as shown above, he will pick cards. Now the sum of cards will be n(n+1)/2 in the upper series as he picks up 5% cards of total cards so

According to given condition, ( n(n+1)/2)*(5/100) = n

So onfiltered=39.

(5% of total cards)

---=====---

5) Ans: i) girl

ii) mother

---=====---

6) Ans: 20 hrs

From the condition given above the difference between two clock in one hour is 3 min. so for one hour difference i.e. 60 min. difference the clock should run for 60/3=20hrs

---=====---

7) Ans: 99

---=====---

8) Ans a)231 2^2-1^2=3, 3^2-2^2=5 similarly 16^2- 8^2=231 b) 27
