Tom takes a piece of fruit from the box with the labels ‘Apples and Pears’. If it is an apple, then the label ‘Apples’ belong to this box. The box that said ‘Apples’, then of course shouldn’t be labeled ‘Apples and Pears’, because that would mean that the box with ‘Pears’ would have been labeled correctly, and this is contradictory to the fact that none of the labels was correct. On the box with the label ‘Appels’ should be the label ‘Pears’. If Tom would have taken a pear, the reasoning would have been in a similar way. .

Q19. A Boy Leaves Home In The Morning To Go To School. At The Moment He Leaves The House He Looks At The Clock In The Mirror. The Clock Has No Number Indication And For This Reason The Boy Makes A Mistake

The difference between the real time and the time of the mirror image is two hours and ten minutes (two and a half hours, minus the twenty minutes of cycling).

Therefore, the original time on the clock at home that morning could only have been five minutes past seven: The difference between these clocks is exactly 2 hours and ten minutes (note that also five minutes past one can be mirrored in a similar way, but this is not in the morning!).

Conclusion: The boy reaches school at five minutes past seven plus twenty minutes of cycling, which is twenty-five minutes past seven!.

Q22. A Swimmer Jumps From A Bridge Over A Canal And Swims 1 Kilometer Stream Up. After That First Kilometer, He Passes A Floating Cork. He Continues Swimming For Half An Hour And Then Turns Around And Swim

If you have written down a full paper of mathematical formulas, you have been thinking too complicated…It is obvious that the cork does not move relatively to the water (i.e. has the same speed as the water). So if the swimmer is swimming away from the cork for half an hour (up stream), it will take him another half hour to swim back to the cork again. Because the swimmer is swimming with constant speed (constant relatively to the speed of the water!) you can look at it as if the water in the river doesn’t move, the cork doesn’t move, and the swimmer swims a certain time away from the cork and then back. So in that one hour time, the cork has floated from 1 kilometer up stream to the bridge. Conclusion: The water in the canal flows at a speed of 1 km/h..

Q23. An Old Farmer Died And Left 17 Cows To His Three Sons. In His Will, The Farmer Stated That His Oldest Son Should Get 1/2, His Middle Son Should Get 1/3, And His Youngest Son Should Get 1/9 Of All The

The neighbour borrowed an extra cow, to make the total number of cows 1@Then the oldest son got 1/2 of 18 is 9 cows, the middle son got 1/3 of 18 is 6 cows, and the youngest son got 1/9 of 18 is 2 cows. Since 9+6+2 = 17, the cows could be divided among the three brothers in such a way that the borrowed cow was left over, and could be returned to its owner

Q24. There Are 200 Questions On A 3 Hr Examination.among These Questions Are 50 Mathematics Problems.it Is Suggested That Twice As Much Time Be Spent On Each Maths Problem As For Each Other Question.how Ma

72

Explanation : let time taken for each of 150 questions is x

time taken for each maths question is 2x

total time period is 3hr=180min

150x+50(2x)=180

250x=180min

x=180/250=0.72min=43.2sec

time taken for maths problems is 43.2*2*50=72 min

Q25. General Gasslefield, Accused Of High Treason, Is Sentenced To Death By The Court-martial. He Is Allowed To Make A Final Statement, After Which He Will Be Shot If The Statement Is False Or Will Be Hung

General Gasslefield said:

“I will be shot.”

If this statement was true, he would have been hung and thus not be shot. But then his statement would be false, which implies that he should be shot, making the statement true again, etc… In other words: the verdict of the court-martial could not be executed and the general was released..

Q33. You Walk Upwards On An Escalator, With A Speed Of 1 Step Per Second. After 50 Steps You Are At The End. You Turn Around And Run Downwards With A Speed Of 5 Steps Per Second. After 125 Steps You Are Ba

Let v be the speed of the escalator, in steps per second. Let L be the number of steps that you need to take when the escalator stands still. Upwards (along with the escalator), you walk 1 step per second. You need 50 steps, so that takes 50 seconds. This gives: L – 50 × v = 5@Downwards (against the direction of the escalator), you walk 5 steps per second. You need 125 steps, so that takes 25 seconds. This gives: L + 25 × v = 12@From the two equations follows: L = 100, v = @When the escalator stands still, you need 100 steps.

Q35. Here Is A Sequence Of Numbers: 1 11 21 1211 111221 It Seems To Be A Strange Sequence, But Yet There Is A System Behind It… What Is The Next Term In This Sequence?

Again, the system behind the sequence is that each number (except the first one of the sequence) “describes” the previous number. Now, however, the number of occurrences of each cipher is counted. So 1231 means one “2” and three times a “1”, and 131221 means one “3”, one “2”, and two times a “1”. The number following on 131221 is therefore 132231 (one “3”, two times a “2”, and three times a “1”). The complete sequence is as follows: 1 11 21 1211 1231 131221 132231 232221 134211 14131231 14231241 24132231 14233221 14233221 etcetera .

Q36. On A Sunny Morning, A Greengrocer Places 200 Kilograms Of Cucumbers In Cases In Front Of His Shop. At That Moment, The Cucumbers Are 99% Water. In The Afternoon, It Turns Out That It Is The Hottest Da

In the morning, the 200 kilograms of cucumbers are 99% water. So the non-water part of the cucumbers has a mass of 2 kilograms. At the end of the day, the cucumbers are 98% water. The remaining 2% is still the 2 kilograms of non-water material (which does not change when the water evaporates). If 2% equals 2 kilograms, then 100% equals 100 kilograms. So, the greengrocer has 100 kilograms of cucumbers left at the end of the day..
