Each item has a question followed by two statements, I and II.

them alone can answer

the team?

I. The average weight of the team increases by 20 kg.

II. The three new men substitute earlier members whose weights are 64 kg, 75 kg and 66 kg.

ratio would the profits change?

I. The cost price remains constant. II. The cost price increased by 10%.

(a) A (b) B (c) C (d) D (e) E

and each boy gets 3 sweets, what are the numbers of boys and girls?

I. The number of girls is not more than 5.

II. If each girl gets 3 sweets and each boy gets 2 sweets, the number of sweets required for

the children will still be the same.

a ditch in ‘a’ days and B can dig in ‘b’ days, will the work get done faster if A begins?

I. For a positive integer n, = 1. II. b > a

home?

I. The time taken to travel from home to office is as much as the time taken from home to the

cinema hall, both distances being covered without stopping.

II. The road from the cinema hail to home is bad and speed reduces, as compared to that on the

road from home to the office.

(a) A (b) B (c) C (d) D (e) E

I. x + y + t is even. II. t and z are odd.

(a) A (b) B (c) C (d) D (e) E

I. The LCM of x and 18 is 36. II. The HCF of x and 18 is 2.

(a) A (b) B (c) C (d) D (e) E

I. Area of the rectangle is 48 square units. II. Length of the diagonal is 10 units.

(a) A (b) B (c) C (d) D (e) E

I. Sum of the squares of the first and the second term is 116.

II. The fifth term is divisible by 7.

(a) A (b) B (c) C (d) D (e) E

I. With $ 84, 1 can buy 14 bananas and 35 oranges.

II. If price of bananas is reduced by 50%, then we can buy 48 bananas for $ 12

require the total number of members in the team to calculate the total increase in weight of the

team. Hence, the questions cannot be answered even with the help of both the statements

together.

Original profit = (S.P. – C.P.) Sale

and new profit = (1.1 S.P. – C.P.) 0.9 Sale

Hence, from statement (I) ratio of profit =

From here we cannot calculate ratio of profits

However, if we use statement (II) then ratio =

Hence, statement (II) alone is sufficient to answer the question.

than 5, then we have G = 1, B = 6 OR G = 4, B = 4. Since we cannot get a single solution from

this statement it is not sufficient to answer the question. If we use statement (II) 3B + 2G = 20 we

have G = 4 and B = 4.

Hence, statement (II) alone is sufficient to answer the question.

a and b have to be assigned in such a way that n is an integer. It means that number of days in

which the entire work is to be finished should be an integer. Suppose if a = 2 and b = 3 then

whosoever starts the work, number of days to complete the work would be same. If n is not an

integer, the situation would be entirely different. Hence, statement (I) alone is sufficient to answer

the question.

with that of cinema hall to home because speed of both ways is not given. However in statement

(II) it is given that speed from cinema hail to home is less as compared to that of office to home.

Hence, we conclude that distance between home to cinema hall is more.

whether z is even or odd. However if we know that z is odd, then (x +y + t) – z will always be odd.

Hence both the statements (I) and (II) are needed to answer the question.

LCM HCF = First number second number.

Hence required number = = 4. Hence both the statements are required.

we can find L (length) of the rectangle. Hence, both the statements are required to answer the

question.

and there exist two such numbers only 4 and 10 such that (4)2 + (10)2 = 116. Hence question can

be answered with the help of statement (I) alone.

question can be answered with the help of statement (II) alone.
