let the degrees be 2x, 3x and 4x.
Sum of degrees = 9x
9x = 180 degrees, solving for x, x= 20 degrees

Thus, the smallest angle = 2x = 2x20= 40 degrees
The largest angle = 4x = 4x20 = 80 degrees

Sum of smallest and largest angles = 40+80 = 120 degrees


Let x miles be the distance between A & B.
Time taken in reaching from A to B = Dist/speed = x/4
Time taken in reaching from B to A = Dist/speed = x/8
Total distance = x+x=2x
Total time = x/4+x/8 = 3x/8
Avg speed = total dist/total time = 2x/3x/8 = 16/3 miles/hr
Thus ans is C.


It will take the needle to reach to 8 intervals to reach the starting point.
Thus, 1174/8=1168 full circles and 6 intervals. Thus, the needle will be at E


Let the No. of fishes be X
After selling 1/4x fishes, fishes left = 3/4x.
He gave away 2/3rd of fishes left. Thus, he now has 1/3rd of fishes left = 1/3 * 3/4x = 1/4x
This 1/4x is equal to 4. Thus, x = 16

The question is of an arithmetic progression. The series goes like this ....x+2x+3x+4x+.....x.x Taking x common, we get, x(1+2+3+4+...x) The sum of arithmetic series = no. of terms .(first term+last term)/2 No. of terms is x. Thus, Sum = x ( x.(1+x)/2), which simplifies to x2(1+x)/2 Thus, B is the a...


An urn contains 10 balls, numbered from 1 to 10. If 2 balls are selected at random with replacement from the urn, what is the probability that the sum of the 2 numbers on the balls will be even? A. 25% B. 37.5% C. 50% D. 62.5% E. 75% OA C Source: Veritas Prep Ok. since the question includes the ter...


For the sum to be even, the balls selected must be both odd or both even. Both odd numbered balls will mean, balls with numbers 1,3,5,7,9 i.e. 5 Both even numbered balls will mean balls with numbers 2,4,6,8,10 i.e. 5 Any other combination will yield an odd sum. For selecting 2 odd numbered balls, nu...


The answer should be E. Let us assume that the amount invested in the fund be x. 40% of that amount is in stocks. Thus, 0.4x is in the form of stocks. of that, 20% is in preferred stocks, thus 0.4x*.02=0.08x is in preferred stocks. This amount is equal to $576. Solving for X, we get X= $7200 which i...
