Thus, option (D) is the right answer.

4) If 'relftaga' means carefree, 'otaga' means careful and 'fertaga' means careless, which of the following could mean 'aftercare'?

  1. zentaga
  2. tagafer
  3. tagazen
  4. relffer

Answer: C

Explanation:

According to the question,

relf taga = care free
o taga = care full
fer taga = care less

Now, from the above, it is clear that taga means to care. In the given worlds, we can see that if taga present in the second part, care comes in the first part in English translation.

So, for "aftercare" word "taga-er" and "tagazen" are the options. But "fer" means less. Therefore tagazen is the right answer.

Hence option (C) will be the correct answer.


5) A cube is built using 64 cubic blocks of side one unit. After it is built, one cubic block is removed from every corner of the cube. The resulting surface area of the body (in square units) after the removal is __________.

  1. 56
  2. 64
  3. 72
  4. 96

Answer: D

Explanation:

Given,

Cube is built using 64 cubic blocks of side one unit.

So, side * side * side = 64 = 4 * 4 * 4 *

Hence, side = 4 sq. Units

number of faces in a cube = 6

Now, we know that the surface area of the body will remain unchanged when any cubic block is removed from every corner of the cube. A cube contains eight corner pieces (containing three visible sides) which make the number of visible faces same as after and before removal.

So, surface area of the body before removal = surface area of the body after removal

= Face * side * side = 6 * 4 * 4 = 96.

Therefore option (D) will be the correct answer.


6) A shaving set company sells 4 different types of razors, Elegance, Smooth, Soft and Executive. Elegance sells at Rs. 48, Smooth at Rs. 63, Soft at Rs. 78 and Executive at Rs. 173 per piece. The table below shows the numbers of each razor sold in each quarter of a year.

Quarter\Product Elegence Smooth Soft Executive
Q1 27300 20009 17602 9999
Q2 25222 19392 18445 8942
Q3 28976 22429 19544 10234
Q4 21012 18229 16595 10109

Which product contributes the greatest fraction to the revenue of the company in that year?

  1. Elegance
  2. Executive
  3. Smooth
  4. Soft

Answer: B

Explanation:

To calculate the revenue generated by each product in a year we need first to calculate total units of each category sold, and then multiply it with the cost per unit.

Given,

   Cost per unit:- Elegance = Rs. 48, Smooth = Rs. 63, Soft = Rs. 78 and Executive = Rs. 173

Total revenue generated from Elegance = (27300+25222+28976+21012) * Rs. 48 = Rs. 4920480

Total revenue generated from Smooth = (20009+19392+22429+18229) * Rs. 63 = Rs. 5043717

Total revenue generated from Soft = (17602+18445+19544+16595) * Rs. 78 = Rs. 5630508

Total revenue generated from Executive = (9999+8942+10234+10109) * Rs. 173 = Rs. 6796132

So, Total revenue from all product = Rs. 22390837

Now,

   Fraction of Revenue for Elegance = 4920480 / 22390837 = 0.2197

   Fraction of Revenue for Smooth = 5043717 / 22390837 = 0.2252

   Fraction of Revenue for Soft = 5630508 / 22390837 = 0.2514

   Fraction of Revenue for Executive = 6796132 / 22390837 = 0.3035

Hence, the greatest fraction to the revenue of the company in that year is: Executive (0.3035).

Therefore option (B) will be the correct answer.

Option C is incorrect because the number of languages in India is not mentioned in the question.

Option D is correct as it can be easily inferred from the above statement.

Therefore option (D) will be the right answer.

Therefore option (D) will be the correct answer.
