. A hare and a tortoise have a race along a circle of 100 yards diameter. The tortoise goes in one direction and the hare in the other. The hare starts after the tortoise has covered 1/5 of its distance and that too leisurely. The hare and tortoise meet when the hare has covered only 1/8 of the distance. By what factor should the hare increase its speed so as to tie the race? if the hare starts after 1/4 th then asnwr 35







Hare starts after tortoise covers 1/5th distance .

When hare covers 1/8th of distance tortoise meets hare

So distance covered by tortoise = 1-(1/5 + 1/8)

= 27/40

Time taken by both is same

time = dist/speed

So (dist/ speed) of tortoise = (dist / speed) of hare

let speed of tortoise be t and of hare be h

27/40t = 1/8h

h = (40/(8*27) )* t = 5/27 * t

Now for the next part hare has to cover 7/8 th distance when tortoise covers 1/8 th distance

so we get

1/8t = 7/8h

h = 7t

so the factor by which h,s speed increases = 7t/ (5/27 * t)

= 37.8

Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game. Given the expression

N = 12 + X*(Y - Z)

where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (0 to 9), Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z). Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variable to substitute the value. Finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable. Assuming both plays to their optimal strategies, the value of N at the end of the game would be






if the expr is x*(y-z) then its 18

if its x-(y-z) then its 2

if its x+(y-z) then its 12

adjust accordingly

Anoop managed to draw 7 circles of equal radii with their centres on the diagonal of a square such that the two extreme circles touch two sides of the square and each middle circle touches two circles on either side. Find the ratio of the radius of the circles to the side of the square.

1:(2+ 6

1:(2+ 6√2)

1:(4+ 7

1:(4+ 7√3)


1:(2+ 7

1:(2+ 7√2)

(2+ 7√2):1


Let the radius of circle be r

let the side of square be a

then diagonal of square= a*sqrt(2)

This diagonal length = 12*r + 2r * sqrt(2)

(because the extreme circle,s radius is perpendicular to side of square.)

Thus we get




Thus ratio: r:a = 1:(6*sqrt(2)+2)

Ans: 1:(6*sqrt(2)+2)

40. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 20 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack.

Alice starts and the players take turns

s. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (0 ≤ i ≤ 20). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move.

If the gold coin happens to be on top when it,s a player,s turn then the player wins the game.

Initially, the gold coins the third coin from the top. Then

Alice has no winning strategy.

In order to win, Alice,s first move should be a 0-move.

In order to win, Alice,s first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move.

In order to win, Alice,s first move should be a 1-move

ANS1 move

How many 5 digit numbers can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (but with repetition) that are divisible by 4?

Can you help Alok find the answer?






no divisible by 4 if its last 2 digits is divisible by 4 so we find 5 such numbers 12,24,44,32, the last 2 digits are fixed...and the remaining 3 digits can be formed by 5C1 for each digits i.e. for 3 digits 5*5*5 =625 and the last 2 digits 5 is possible so 625*5==3125.


10 people meet and shake hands. The maximum number of handshakes possible if there is to be no "cycle" of handshakes is (A cycle of handshakes is a sequence of k people a1, a2, ......, ak (k > 2) such that the pairs {a1, a2}, {a2, a3}, ......, {ak-1, ak}, {ak, a1} shake hands).
