12 year old Manick is three times as old as his brother Rahul. How old will Manick be when he is twice as old as Rahul ?

**Answer: **B

Manick's present age = 12 years, Rahul's present age = 4 years.

Let Manick be twice as old as Rahul after x years from now.

Then, 12 + x = 2 (4 + x)

\(\Rightarrow 12 + x = 8 + 2x\)

\(\Rightarrow x = 4.\)

Hence, Manick's required age = 12 + x = 16 years

A girl counted in the following way on the fingers of her left hand : She started by calling the thumb 1, the index finger 2, middle finger 3, ring finger 4, little finger 5 and then reversed direction calling the ring finger 6, middle finger 7 and so on. She counted upto 1994. She ended counting on which finger ?

**Answer: **B

Clearly, while counting, the numbers associated to the thumb will be : 1, 9,17, 25,.....

i.e. numbers of the form (8n + 1).

Since 1994 = 249 x 8 + 2, so 1993 shall correspond to the thumb and 1994 to the index finger

A father is now three times as old as his son. Five years back, he was four times as old as his son. The age of the son (in years) is

**Answer: **B

Let son's age be x years. Then, father's age = (3x) years.

Five years ago, father's age = (3x - 5) years and son's age = (x - 5) years.

So, 3x - 5 = 4 (x - 5)

\(\Rightarrow 3x - 5 = 4x - 20\)

\(\Rightarrow x = 15\)

A, B, C, D and E play a game of cards. A says to B, "If you give me three cards, you will have as many as E has and if I give you three cards, you will have as many as D has." A and B together have 10 cards more than what D and E together have. If B has two cards more than what C has and the total number of cards be 133, how many cards does B have ?

**Answer: **C

Clearly, we have :

B-3 = E ...(i)

B + 3 = D ...(ii)

A+B = D + E+10 ...(iii)

B = C + 2 ...(iv)

A+B + C + D + E= 133 ...(v)

From (i) and (ii), we have : 2 B = D + E ...(vi)

From (iii) and (vi), we have : A = B + 10 ...(vii)

Using (iv), (vi) and (vii) in (v), we get:

\((B + 10) + B + (B - 2) + 2B = 133\)

\(\Rightarrow 5B = 125 \)

\(\Rightarrow B = 25\)

Mac has £ 3 more than Ken, but then Ken wins on the horses and trebles his money, so that he now has £ 2 more than the original amount of money that the two boys had between them. How much money did Mac and Ken have between them before Ken's win ?

**Answer: **C

Let money with Ken = x. Then, money with Mac = x + £ 3.

Now, 3x = (x + x + £ 3) + £ 2

\(\Rightarrow x = £ 5.\)

Therefore Total money with Mac and Ken = 2x + £ 3 = £ 13

There are deer and peacocks in a zoo. By counting heads they are 80. The number of their legs is 200. How many peacocks are there ?

**Answer: **D

Let x and y be the number of deer and peacocks in the zoo respectively. Then,

x + y = 80 ...(i) and

4x + 2y = 200 or 2x + y = 100 ...(ii)

Solving (i) and (ii), we get) x = 20, y = 60
