The mean marks obtained by 300 students in a subject are 60. The mean of top 100 students was found to be 80 and the mean of last 100 students was found to be 50. The mean marks of the remaining 100 students are?

A)
70

B)
65

C)
60

D)
50


Correct Answer :

50


Explanation :

Total marks of remaining/middle 100 students
= 300*60 - 100*80 - 100*50
= 18000 - 8000 - 5000
= 18000 - 13000 = 5000

Mean marks of remaining 100 students = 5000/100 = 50

The average salary of the entire staff in a office is 120 rs per month. The average salary of officers is 460 rs and that of non­officers is 110 rs. If the number of officers is 15, then the number of non­officers in the office is?

A)
500

B)
488

C)
510

D)
450


Correct Answer :

510


Explanation :

Let the required number of non officers = x
Then, 110x + 460 * 15 = 120 * ( 15 + x )
or, 120x - 110x = 460 *15 - 120 * 15
10x= 15 *( 460 - 120 )
So, x = 510

Average of 11 numbers is 36, whereas average of 9 of them is 34. If the remaining two numbers are in the ratio 2:3, then find the value of the smallest number (between remaining two numbers) ?

A)
36

B)
45

C)
48

D)
54


Correct Answer :

36


Explanation :

Average = Sum of quantities/ Number of quantities
Let the remaining two numbers are 2x and 3x
Then ,Sum of remaining two numbers = Sum of 11 numbers - Sum of 9 numbers
2x+3x = 11*36 - 9*34
5x = 396 - 306
5x= 90
x=18

Therefore,the numbers are 2x=>36 and 3x=>54
the value of the smallest number=>36

The average salary of all the 60 employees in an office is Rs. 12,000 per month. if the number of executives is twice the number of non executives employees, then the average salary of all the non executives employees is ?

A)
Rs. 9000

D)
Can't be determined


Correct Answer :

Can't be determined


Explanation :

No. of executives / No. of non- executives = 2 / 1
Therefore, Number of executives = 40 , and number of non executives employees = 20
now , go through the options
Total salary = 40 x salary of executives + 20 x salary of non-executives
60 x 12000 = 40 x k + 20 x l, here k, l are unknowns
so we con't determine the required average salary

A)
16

B)
20

C)

Correct Answer :

18


Explanation :

Let x1, x2, x3, ......., x8, x9 be the numbers

x1+ x2+ x3+ x4+ x5+ x6+ x7+ x8+ x9= 18*9
x1+ x2+ x3+ x4+ x5+ x6+ x7+ x8+ x9= 162 .... (1)

x1+ x2+ x3+ x4+ x5= 19*5
x1+ x2+ x3+ x4+ x5= 95 ....(2)

x5+ x6+ x7+ x8+ x9= 17*5
x5+ x6+ x7+ x8+ x9= 85 ....(3)

Adding equations (2) and (3) and then subtracting equation (1) from it, we get
x5= 18

Five years ago the average age of four men is 48 yr. Now, a new man joins and the average age increases by 2 yr.What is the age of the new man?

A)
36 yr

B)
42 yr

C)
41 yr

D)
38 yr


Correct Answer :

38 yr


Explanation :

Sum of the ages of the four men five year ago= (48 *4) year = 192 year
Present sum of the ages of the four men= 192 + (5* 4) year = 212 year
Now, 50 =(212+ Age of the new man) / 5

Age of the new man = (50* 5)- 212 year = 38 year

The mean yearly salary of employees of a company was 20000. The mean yearly salaries of male and female employees were 20800 and 16800 respectively. Find the ratio of males to females employed by the company?

A)
3 : 2

B)
4 : 1

C)
2 : 1

D)
5 : 3


Correct Answer :

4 : 1


Explanation :

Let the number of males be x and the number of females be y.
Sum of the salaries of the men = 20800x
Sum of the salaries of the females = 16800y
Now, 20000 = 20800x + 16800y / (x + y)
20000 (x + y) = 20800x + 16800y
800x = 3200y
x/y =4/1
x : y = 4 : 1
