3) In a certain year, the number of girls who graduated from City High School was twice the number of boys. If 3/4 of the girls and 5/6 of the boys went to college immediately after
graduation, what fraction of the graduates that year went to college immediately after graduation?

Assume that number of boys graduated from City High School = B
Therefore, number of girls graduated from City High School = 2*B
It is given that 3/4 of the girls and 5/6 of the boys went to college immediately
Hence, total students went to college
= (3/4)(2*B) + (5/6)(B)
= B * (3/2 + 5/6)
= (7/3)B
Fraction of the graduates that year went to college immediately after graduation
= [(7/3)B] / [3*B]
= 7/9
Therefore, the answer is 7/9

4) A mule and a donkey were carrying full sacks on their backs.The mule started complaining that his load was too heavy. The donkey said to him "Why are you complaining?

## ICICI Placement Papers - general aptitude

Here are some solved questions from ICICI Placement Papers

1) Which one of the following conditions must p, q and r satisfy so that the following system of linear simultaneous equations has at least one solution, such that p + q + r not=0?
x+ 2y – 3z = p
2x + 6y – 11z = q
x – 2y + 7z = r

a) 5p –2q – r = 0
b) 5p + 2q + r = 0
c) 5p + 2q – r = 0
d) 5p – 2q + r = 0

Solution:
It is given that , if we consider the first option, and multiply the first equation by 5, second by –2 and third by –1, we see that the coefficients of x, y and z all add up-to zero.
Thus, 5p – 2q – r = 0. No other option satisfies this.

2) In a 4000 meter race around a circular stadium having a circumference of 1000 meters, the fastest runner and the slowest runner reach the same point at the end of the 5th minute, for the first time after the start of the race. All the runners have the same staring point and each runner maintains a uniform speed throughout the race. If the fastest runner runs at twice the speed of the slowest runner, what is the time taken by the fastest runner to finish the race?

a) 20 min
b) 15 min
c) 10 min
d) 5 min

Solution:
The ratio of the speeds of the fastest and the slowest runners is 2 : 1. Hence they should meet at only one point on the circumference i.e. the starting point (As the difference in the
ratio in reduced form is 1). For the two of them to meet for the first time, the faster should have completed one complete round over the slower one. Since the two of them meet for the first time after 5 min, the faster one should have completed 2 rounds (i.e. 2000 m) and the slower one should have completed 1 round. (i.e. 1000 m) in this time. Thus, the faster one would complete the race (i.e. 4000 m) in 10 min.

3) Dealer sold a radio at a loss of 2.5 %. Had he sold for Rs. 100 more, he would have gained 7 %.In order to gain 12 %, he should sell it for:

a) 850
b) 1080
c) 925
d) 1120

Solution:
Let c.p be c
let s.p be s
s = 0.975c
Had he sold for Rs. 100 more, he would have gained 7 %
(100+0.975c-c)/c*100=7
(100-0.025c)*100 = 7c
10000-2.5c=7c
c=1000
The answer should be 1120.

4) At the end of the year 1998, shepard bought nine dozen goats.Henceforth, every year he had P% of goat at the beginning of the year and sold q% at the end of the year where p>0 and q>0.If the shepard had nine dozen goat at end of the year 2002, after making the sales for the year, which of the following is true??

a) p=q
b) p>q
c) p<q
d) p=q/2

Solution:
The number of goats remain the same.If the percentage that is added every time is equal to the percentage that is sold, then there should be a net decrease. The same will be the case if the percentage added is less than the percentage sold.The only way, the number of goats will remain the same is if p >q.
