Ans:
The given sequence is a combination of two series:I. M,O,R.V AND II. N,L,I,?

The pattern in I is : M-(+2)→O-(+3)→R-(+4)→V The pattern in II is: N-(-2)→L-(-3)→I-(-4)→E.

So, the missing letter is E.

The pattern in I is : M-(+2)→O-(+3)→R-(+4)→V The pattern in II is: N-(-2)→L-(-3)→I-(-4)→E.

So, the missing letter is E.

**16. A and B started a partnership business investing some amount in the ratio of 3 : 5. C joined them after six months with an amount equal to that of B. In what proportion should the profit at the end of one year be distributed amount A, B and C?**

3:7:5

6:10:5

6:10:7

6:7:5

Ans:
Let initial investment of A is 3x and B is 5x, then C investment is also 5x, but most important to note in this question is the time duration of investment

Like, A invested for 12 months, B invested for 12 months and C invested for 6 months.

A:B:C =(3x*12):(5x*12):(5x*6)

= 36:60:30

= 6:10:5

Like, A invested for 12 months, B invested for 12 months and C invested for 6 months.

A:B:C =(3x*12):(5x*12):(5x*6)

= 36:60:30

= 6:10:5

**17. Three partners A,B and C shared the profit in a software business in the ratio 5:7:8. They had partnered for 14 months, 8 months and 7 months respectively. Find the ratio of their investments?**

19:49:64

20:49:64

20:49:65

20:50:64

Ans:
Let their investments be Rs. x for 14 months, Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months respectively

Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8

Now, 14x/8y = 5/7

y = (49/20)x

14x/7z = 5/8

z = (16/5)x

x:y:z = x:(49/20)x:(16/5)x

20:49:64

Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8

Now, 14x/8y = 5/7

y = (49/20)x

14x/7z = 5/8

z = (16/5)x

x:y:z = x:(49/20)x:(16/5)x

**18. A circular garden has a circumference of 440 m. There is a 7 m wide border inside the garden along its periphery. The area of the border is :**

2918 m^2

2921 m^2

2924 m^2

2926 m^2

Ans:
2Ï€R = 440

2 × 22/7 x R = 440

R = 70 m.

Inside radius = ( 70 – 7 ) m = 63 m

Area of the border = Ï€ [(70)^2 – (63)^2]m^2

= [22/7 x (70 + 63 ) x ( 70 – 63 ) ] m2 = 2926m^2

2 × 22/7 x R = 440

R = 70 m.

Inside radius = ( 70 – 7 ) m = 63 m

Area of the border = Ï€ [(70)^2 – (63)^2]m^2

= [22/7 x (70 + 63 ) x ( 70 – 63 ) ] m2 = 2926m^2

**20. Two pipes A,B can fill a tank in 24 min. and 32 min. respectively. If both the pipes are opened simultaneously, after how much time B should be closed so that the tank is full in 18 min.?**

8 min

12 min

15 min

20 min

Ans:
let B be closed after x min. then ,

Part filled by (A+B) in x min. +part filled by A in (18-x)min.=1

Therefore x*((1/24)+(1/32))+(18-x)*(1/24)=1

(7x/96) + ((18-x)/24)=1.

7x +4*(18-x)=96.

Hence, be must be closed after 8 min.

Part filled by (A+B) in x min. +part filled by A in (18-x)min.=1

Therefore x*((1/24)+(1/32))+(18-x)*(1/24)=1

(7x/96) + ((18-x)/24)=1.

7x +4*(18-x)=96.

Hence, be must be closed after 8 min.
