**4. 15, 16, 34, 105, 424, 2124, 12756**

- A. 16

B. 34

C. 105

D. 2124

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

\({2}^{nd}\) term = \({1}^{st}\) x 1 + 1 = 15 x 1 + 1 = 16

\({3}^{rd}\) term = \({2}^{nd}\) x 2 + 2 = 16 x 2 + 2 = 34

\({4}^{th}\) term = \({3}^{rd}\) x 3 + 3 = 34 x 3 + 3 = 105

\({5}^{th}\) term = \({4}^{th}\) x 4 + 4 = 105 x 4 + 4 = 424

\({6}^{th}\) term = \({5}^{th}\) x 5 + 5 = 424 x 5 + 5 = 2125

\({6}^{th}\) term should 2125 instead of 2124

**5. 10, 26, 74, 218, 654, 1946, 5834**

- A. 26

B. 74

C. 218

D. 654

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

\({2}^{nd}\) term = \({1}^{st}\) x 3 – 4 = 10 x 3 – 4 = 26

\({3}^{rd}\) term = \({2}^{nd}\) x 3 – 4 = 26 x 3 – 4 = 74

\({4}^{th}\) term = \({3}^{rd}\) x 3 – 4 = 74 x 3 – 4 = 218.

\({5}^{th}\) term = \({4}^{th}\) x 3 – 4 = 218 x 3 – 4 = 650.

\({5}^{th}\) term must be 650 instead of 654

- A. 123

B. 127

C. 235

D. 305

**Answer**: Option B

**Explanation**:

Required number = H.C.F. of (1657 – 6) and (2037 – 5)

= H.C.F. of 1651 and 2032 = 127.

**2. Which of the following has the most number of divisors?**

- A. 99

B. 101

C. 176

D. 182

**Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

99 = 1 x 3 x 3 x 11

101 = 1 x 101

176 = 1 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 11

182 = 1 x 2 x 7 x 13

So, divisors of 99 are 1, 3, 9, 11, 33, .99

Divisors of 101 are 1 and 101

Divisors of 176 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 11, 16, 22, 44, 88 and 176

Divisors of 182 are 1, 2, 7, 13, 14, 26, 91 and 182.

Hence, 176 has the most number of divisors.

**3. The L.C.M. of two numbers is 48. The numbers are in the ratio 2 : 3. Then some of the number is:**

- A. 28

B. 32

C. 40

D. 64

**Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

Let the numbers be 2x and 3x.

Then, their L.C.M. = 6x.

So, 6x = 48 or x = 8.

The numbers are 16 and 24.

Hence, required sum = (16 + 24) = 40.

**4. The greatest possible length which can be used to measure exactly the lengths 7 m, 3 m 85 cm, 12 m 95 cm is:**

- A. 15 cm

B. 25 cm

C. 35 cm

D. 42 cm

**Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

Required length = H.C.F. of 700 cm, 385 cm and 1295 cm = 35 cm.

**5. The least number, which when divided by 12, 15, 20 and 54 leaves in each case a remainder of 8 is:**

- A. 504

B. 536

C. 544

D. 548

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Required number = (L.C.M. of 12, 15, 20, 54) + 8

= 540 + 8

= 548.

- A. 4 months

B. 5 months

C. 6 months

D. 8 months

** Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Suppose B joined for x months. Then,

Then, \(\frac{85000 Ã— 12}{42500 Ã— x }\) = \(\frac{3}{1 }\)

x = \(\frac{85000 Ã— 12}{42500 Ã— 3 }\) = 8

**2. Aman started a business investing Rs. 70,000. Rakhi joined him after six months with an amount of Rs.. 1,05,000 and Sagar joined them with Rs. 1.4 lakhs after another six months. The amount of profit earned should be distributed in what ratio among Aman, Rakhi and Sagar respectively, 3 years after Aman started the business?**

- A. 7: 6: 10

B. 12: 15: 16

C. 42: 45: 56

D. Cannot be determined

** Answer**: Option B

**Explanation**:

Aman : Rakhi : Sagar = (70,000 x 36) : (1,05,000 x 30) : (1,40,000 x 24) = 12 : 15 : 16.

**3. Arun, Kamal, and Vinay invested Rs. 8000, Rs. 4000 and Rs. 8000 respectively in a business. Arun left after six months. If after eight months, there was a gain of Rs. 4005, then what will be the share of Kamal? **

- A. Rs. 890

B. Rs. 1335

C. Rs. 1602

D. Rs. 1780

** Answer**: Option A

**Explanation**:

Arun : Kamal : Vinay = (8,000 x 6) : (4,000 x 8) : (8,000 x 8)

= 48 : 32 : 64

= 3 : 2 : 4.

Kamal’s share = Rs. 4005 X \(\frac{2}{9 }\) = Rs. 890.

**4. Simran started a software business by investing Rs. 50,000. After six months, Nanda joined her with a capital of Rs. 80,000. After 3 years, they earned a profit of Rs. 24,500. What was Simran’s share in the profit?**

- A. Rs. 9,423

B. Rs. 10,250

C. Rs. 12,500

D. Rs. 10,500

** Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Simran : Nanda = (50000 x 36) : (80000 x 30) = 3 : 4.

Simran’s share = Rs. 24500 x \(\frac{3}{7 }\)

**5. A and B started a partnership business investing some amount in the ratio of 3 : 5. C joined then 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 among A, B and C?**

- A. 3 : 5 : 2

B. 3 : 5 : 5

C. 6 : 10 : 5

D. Data inadequate

** Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

Let the initial investments of A and B be 3x and 5x.

A : B : C = (3x x 12) : (5x x 12) : (5x x 6) = 36 : 60 : 30 = 6 : 10 : 5.
