For your idea , here I am providing the list of few questions :
Question 1: If (m – 3) = 4m – 5, then which of the following could be the value of m?

98
6
85
2
47

Answer (d)

Explanation: The first equation is m – 3 = 4m – 5, which simplifies to m = 4/3 but this is not the answer. Let us look at the second equation – (m – 3) = 4m – 5. This simplifies to 3 – m = 4m – 5 that means 5m = 10 and m = 2.

Question 2: If w = 2/3 and a = 6 then a/w + 4/w2 =

323
76
10
11
2346

Answer (e)

Explanation: Insert the values given for w and a into the equation a/w + 4/w2 = 5/2 + 3 (4/2)2 = 7/2 + 5/5 = 5/2 + 12 = 7/2 + 5/5 = 29/2 = 7/2 = 11 therefore the correct answer is (d).

Question 3: As an agent, Leonardo receives a \$20,00 commission for each unit he sells more than 500 units, she receives an additional bonus of \$2,000,00. What was the total amount Leonardo received in bonuses in 2011?

\$987
\$4,00,000
\$238
\$127
\$56

Answer (b)

Explanation: Leonardo sold more than 500 units in only 4 month in the year 2011; therefore, 4 months bonus will be quiet equal to the option (b).

Question 4: If (w – 5) = 4w – 7, then which of the following could be the value of w?

985
784
364
2
89

Answer (d)

Explanation: The first equation is w – 5 = 4w – 7, which simplifies to w = 4/3 but this is not the answer. Let’s look at the second equation – (w – 5) = 4w – 7. This simplifies to 5 – w = 4w – 7 that means 5w = 10 and w = 2.

Question 5: If u = cos Θ and v = sin Θ, then for all Θ, u2 + v2 =

12
1
23
78
78

Answer (b)

Explanation: Substitute for m and n. So u2 + v2 = cos2Θ + sin2Θ. But you should the correct identity of cos2Θ + sin2Θ = 1. Therefore the correct option is (b).

Question 6: If log5 = 7 then c =

23.74
74
1.09
56
98

Answer (c)

Explanation: The equation log 5 = 7 in exponential form, c8= 5. Now you have to find the value of c, you are required to take the 7th root of both the sides. You will see that m = 1.09. The correct option is (c).

Question 7: If q < a < 2 then all of the following must be true except:

a
25q
a < a
89a
16q

Answer (c)

Explanation: First place the amount 0.5 in place of a. Now a3 = 0.25, cube root of a = 0.707, a = 0.5, - a = - 0.5, -a = -0.5, and 1/a = 2. This makes (a), (b), (d) and (e) true and (c) false.

Question 8: Points B, W G and P are arranged in a line in the same order. If BG = 13, WP = 14 and BP = 21 then WG =

12
45
8
89
97

Answer (c)

Explanation: To answer the problem algebraically separate one step at a time. First you are required to multiply by 4 on the right, k – 4 = 4 – 4k. Next add 3k to each side and then add 4 to each side to get 4k = 6. Divide each side by 4 to get k = 8.Therefore the correct answer is (c).

Question 9: If g = log, (ax) then pz =

23g
px
19
21a
25

Answer (b)

Explanation: If (ax) = c is a component then g will turn into p and it will turn into az you can compute the value of g = 4.0103. The only answer choice that equals to 2,054. Therefore (b) is the answer.

Question 10: If x – a > x + a, then which of the following must be true?

t
a < 0
25x
16
98

Answer (b)
