2014 Q Explanation neededA question paper must have a question on

one of the eight poets: A, B, C, D, E, F, G

or H. The first four belong to the medieval

period while the rest are considered modern

poets. Generally, modern poets figure in the

question paper in alternate years. Generally

those who like H like G also; and those who

like F like E also. The paper-setter does not

like to ask about F as he has written a book

on F, but he likes F. Last year, the paper

contained a question on A. On the basis of

the information given, this year’ s paper is

most likely to contain a question on

(a) C

(b) E

(c) F

(d) H

1. If 1st March 2014 is Monday, then in which of the following years will the 1st of March be Sunday?

a. 2020

b. 2018

c. 2019d. 2017

Sol.

1st March 2014 is Monday

1st March 2015 will be Tuesday

1st March 2016 will be Thursday (2016 is divisible by 4 => hence a leap year)

1st March 2017 will be Friday

1st March 2018 will be Saturday

1st March 2019 should be Sunday

2. At what time after 3:20 p.m. will the hour and minute hands of a clock make an angle of 75°?

a. 3:22 p.m.

b. 3:24 p.m.

c. 3:28 p.m.

d. 3:30 p.m.Sol.

60 minutes = 360 deg

5 min = 30 deg (360/12)

1 min = 6 deg

use these^

If you still have any doubt let me know.

3. A milkman bought 10 L of milk and added 5 L of water to it. If the price of 1 L of the mixture is Rs. 15 and that of water is Rs. 5, then find the price of 1 liter of milk.

a. Rs. 10

b. Rs. 15

c. Rs. 20d. Data Insufficient

Sol.

Total Mixture = 15 L (10L milk + 5L water)

If, 1L of this Mixture coasts Rs. 15

then, 15L Mixture = 15*15 = Rs. 225

If 1 L of water= Rs. 5

=> 5 L water costs = 5*5 =Rs 25

Now, find cost of 10 L milk,

10L milk = cost of mixture - cost of water

=> Rs 225 - Rs 25 = Rs 200

But ques asks cost of 1 L milk

If cost of 10L milk = Rs 200

then cost of 1L milk = 200/10 = Rs 20

2014 QIf Sohan, while selling two goats at the same

price, makes a profit of 10% on one goat

and suffers a loss of 10% on the other.

(a) he makes no profit and no loss.

(b) he makes a profit of 1%.

(c) he suffers a loss of 1%.

(d) he suffers a loss of 2%

For hour hand-

60 minutes = 30 deg

1 min = 1/2 deg; this means for every 1 min hour hand travels 1/2 deg

therefore, 3:30 p.m. => for 30 min = 15 deg is swapped by the hour hand

hence, angle between the hour hand and '4' will be 30 deg - 15 deg = 15 deg.

θ = 30H - 11M/2

In Q.44, the answer given is (a). But I found (d) as the most suitable option. Option 4 has to be inferred, and not directly mentioned in the passage.

Also, in Q.45, answer given is (c), whereas I found (b) as the appropriate answer.

During Population inversion in three state laser:

1) Metastable state is most populated
