Total number of Vehicles = 160
There are 70 red vehicles thus rest 90 are green vehicles,
out of which 18 are green trucks then we get,
Green cars = 90 - 18 = 72.
Given, Number of cars = 120.
Then, number of red cars,
= 120 - 72
= 48 Red cars.

A man is 24 years, older than his son. In two years, his age will be twice the age of his son. The present age of his son is ?

a

14 years

b

20 years

c

22 years

d

18 years

correct answer c

Let the present age of his son be X years.

So, present age of his father = X+24 (as he is 24 years older than his son)

After 2 years, father's age become (X+24+2) years and Son's age will be (X+2).
Now, according to question,
X+24+2 = 2*(X +2)
Or, X = 22 years.
Son's present age = 22 years.

Grass in lawn grows equally thick and in a uniform rate. It takes 24 days for 70 cows and 60 days for 30 cows to eat the whole of the grass. How many cows are needed to eat the grass in 96 days?

a

20 cows

b

22 cows

c

18 cows

d

16 cows

correct answer a

Let initially X grass was present there,and it is increasing by Y grass per day, then for the first condition We get,
X+24*y = 24*70 ----(1)
For the 2nd condition, we have,
X+60*Y = 60*30----(2) Now, On solving equation (1) and (2), we get
X = 1600 and
Y = 10 /3
Third Condition,
X+96*Y = 96 *N -----(3) [N = Number of Cows required]
Putting the values of X and Y in equation (3), We get
N = 20.
