Ques 24: A sum of money with compound interest becomes 2400 in one year and 3000 in two years. Find the principal amount.

  • 1900
  • 1910
  • 1915
  • 1920

Mathematical Reasoning and Aptitude
We need to go for reverse calculation. The rate of interest is same in both the calculations.
Interest = 3000 = 2400 = 600
Principal = 2400
Time = 1 year
R = I⨯100/P⨯T
R = 25%
The rate of 25% can be applied to earlier year calculation also. This will bring the amount of interest down by 25%. For first year, it will be 480.
The basic principal amount
= 2400-480 = 1920

Ques 25: Effective classroom communication can transform :

HCL computer sale has decreased continuously over the years.

Ques 29: Name the type of computer for which the total sale in all the seven years is maximum ?

  • IBM
  • Lenovo
  • Acer
  • HCL

total sale of IBM (in thousands) = 50+60+50+40+70+80+100 = 450
Similarly,
Total sale of Lenovo = 400
Total sale of Acer = 375
Total sale of HCL = 295
Therefore, the sale of IBM computer is maximum in all the seven years.

Comprehension : read the passage carefully and answer the questions from 46 to 50.
The pre-first world was era is really in a well-suited way for an in-depth evaluation of popular movements, as they were spontaneous and no more than, marginally affected intelligentsia ideologies, objectives or techniques. The limitations of such spontaneity are fairly clear. Popular movements were directed usually against the immediate Indiara oppressor, rather than the distant white superior and so were often not consciously or subjectively anti-imperialist. They tended to be fairly widely scattered in both space and time and were extremely volatile with different social forms of articulation interpenetrating and passing over each other with bewildering ease. All this makes it rather difficult to accept without some qualification the concept of ‘peasant nationalism’ as a coherent alternative to elite patriotic ideologies and movements, popular initiative and autonomy were undoubted, even remarkable at times but unlike middle class nationalism which does have certain continuity, at the level of ideology at least, from the formulation of the drain of wealth theory in the 1870s onwards, the movement that have been considered were clearly fragmented. Yet despite such limitations and crudities, popular unrest did anticipate much of middle class nationalism in terms of issues and forms of struggle, while its specific gains were at times not inconsiderable. Forest rights, the burdens of rent, usury and land revenue, planter exploitation and labour grievances, were all themes taken over by middle class nationalism later.
