Dear Students, Defence Adda is providing you all with this quiz on Mathematics questions for CDS, AFCAT, CAPF and other Defence Examinations. The questions asked in Mathematics Section of most of the defence examinations are based on the topics from Mathematics of Class 11th and 12th. The questions asked in this section are complex and comparatively difficult but once attempted with high accuracy, can fetch you full marks in this section. Also, practice on a daily basis helps one dive into the core concepts of a subject and thus, help her perform to the best of her ability in the real examinations. So, attempt the daily quizzes being provided by Defence Adda and score to the maximum in the Mathematics Section of all sorts of defence examinations.

Q5. Tea worth Rs. 126/kg and Rs. 135/kg are mixed with a 3rd variety in the ratio 1 : 1 : 2. If the mixture worth Rs. 153/kg. The price of 3rd variety per kg is
(a) 165.5
(b) 192.5
(c) 179.5
(d) 175.5

SOLUTIONS

S4. Ans.(b);
Sol.
HCF of 336, 240 & 96 is 48.
No. of stacks = 7+5+2=14 stacks

S5. Ans.(d);
Sol.
Ratio of mixture =1∶1∶2
Let price of third variety per kg be x
ATQ,
126×1+135×1+x×2=153×4
x=175.5

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol.
Required percentage:
[(3.00 + 2.52 + 3.84 + 3.68 +  3.96 ) / ( 288 + 342 + 324 + 336 + 420 )] x 100%
= (17/1710) x 100%
= 1 % ( Approx.)

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.
(sin5° + cos85°)/ (sin5° – cos85°)
= (sin5° + sin5°)/(sin5° – sin5°) = 2sin5°/0 = Not defined
