Q.4 The ratio of the present ages of Asha and Lata is 5 : 6. If the difference between their ages is 6 years, then what will be Lata’s age after 5 years?

1. 35
2. 41

3. 45
4. 40

The correct answer is option 2 i.e. 41 Explanation:

According to the given information,

• The ratio of present ages of Asha and Lata = 5 : 6

Let the ages of Aha and Lata be 5x and 6x respectively.

Difference between their ages is 6 years

6x – 5x = 6

x = 6

Then,

Asha’s age, 5x = 5 × 6 = 30

Lata’s age, 6x = 6 × 6 = 36

Lata’s age after 5 years = 36 + 5 = 41

Lata’s age after 5 years is ‘41’

Hence, “41” is the correct answer.

Q.5  Select the option in which the numbers are related in the same way as the numbers in the given set.

(269, 278, 296)

1. (313, 322, 340)
2. (577, 586, 598)
3. (419, 430, 448)
4. (109, 118, 128)

The correct answer is option 1 i.e. (313, 322, 340)

(269, 278, 296) → 269 + 9 = 278, 278 + 18 = 296

Similarly,

Option 1 → (313, 322, 340) → 313 + 9 = 322, 322 + 18 = 340

Option 2 → (577, 586, 598) → 577 + 9 = 586, 586 + 12 = 598

Option 3 → (419, 430, 448) → 419 + 11 = 430, 430 + 18 = 448

Option 4 → (109, 118, 128) → 109 + 9 = 118, 118 + 10 = 128

‘(313, 322, 340)’ is related in the same way as the numbers in the given set.

Hence, “(313, 322, 340)” is the correct answer.

Solution

The correct answer is option 1 i.e.

Interchanging ‘ + ’ and ‘-‘ and ‘6’ and ‘7’,

Option 3 :

72 + 76 – 67 = 83

148 – 67 = 83

81 is not equal to 83

Option 4 :

68 + 78 – 77 = 59

146 – 77 = 59

69 is not equal to 59

Option 2:

67 + 65 – 66 = 57

132 – 66 = 57
