4. In Tnagar many buildings were under residential category.for buildings they number as 1 to 100. For shops, corporation numbered between 150 and 200 only prime numbers. how many time 6 will appear in building numbering?
Ans:
For 1 to 10 - 1 six
2 to 20 - 1 six
Similarly up to 59 we utilise six, 5 times
from 60 to 69 (including 66) - 11 times
from 70 to 100 - 3, hence ans = 5+11+3 = 19
Ans:19.
5. One grand father has 3 grand child. Eldest one age is 3 times of the youngest child age. Sum of two youngest child age is more than two of eldest one age. Find the eldest one age?
Ans: 15(we can easily predict from options, as we take y as 15)
6. Difefrence between two numbers is 4 and their product is 17. Then find the sum of their squers?

Solution: Here the question appear as an easy one, but carried a lot of unwanted sentences and unwanted datas(i didn't mention above) in exam which may confuse you on solving technique.
So now we can compute x from above equation. (x = 41, 6x = 246)
Let now we compute y,((6x+y)/7) = 45, as we have value of x, compute y.
Ans: 69
13.The ratio between the ages of two pwrsons is 6:5 and sum of there ages is 77 then how many years later there ratio becomes 8:7?
Ans: we can easily predict from options
14. Horse started to chase dog as it relieved stable two hrs ago. And horse started to ran with average speed 22km/hr, horse crossed 10 mts road and two small pounds with depth 3m, and it crossed two small street with 200 mts length. After traveling 6 hrs, 2hrs after sunset it got dog. compute the speed of dog?
Ans: As we have speed and travel time of horse, we can get distance travelled by it.
Hence d = 22*6 = 132km,
Exactly this 132km was travelled by dog in 8 hours (as it started two hours earlier).
Hence speed of dog = 132/8 = 16.5km/hr
Ans:16.5km/hr.

Ans:6C2
16. 3, 22 , 7, 45, 15, ? , 31
Solution: Here it appear simple, because it arranged in arranged in sequence manner, but the actual question was some what twist mentioning fibonacci series and more over question was in statements (no numbers). Hence first try to understand the question well.
Here let group alternate terms 3,7,15,31 (3+4 =7, 7+8 =15, 15+16=31)
Similarly for second group (22,45,? (22+23 = 45, 45+46 = 91) hence ans is 91.
17. Cycles and 4 wheelors problem?
Ans: We can easily predict from options
