General Ability for CSS~2016~Let's practice

Guys, let's practice EDS~40 marks. We can come up with a good result if exercised this portion well.

1~How many pieces of 85 cm length can be cut from a rod 42.5 meters long?

2~Village X has a population of 68000, which is decreasing at the rate of 1200 per year. Village Y has a population of 42000, which is increasing at the rate of 800 per year. In how many years will the population of the two villages be equal?

3~4,8,10,20,30,32,64, what is next digit ?

4~Income of a company doubles after every one year. If the initial income was Rs.4 lakhs, what would be the income after 5 years?

5~On sports day, if 30 children were made to stand in a column, then 16 columns could be formed. if 24 children were made to stand in a column, then how many columns could be formed?

That's a great initiative --indeed. Please proceed this thread by providing comprehensive answers to the questions. Arduously hectic schedule will not allow me to join frequently; however, I will try to participate as soon as possible.

1) In a queue, Mr. X is fourteenth from the front and Mr. Y is seventeenth from the end, while Mr. Z is exactly in between Mr. X and Mr. Y. If Mr. X is ahead of Mr. Y and there are 48 persons in the queue, how many persons are there between Mr. X and Mr. Z?

2) The letters L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S and T in their order are substituted by nine integers 1 to 9 but not in that order. 4 is assigned to P. The difference between P and T is 5. The difference between N and T is 3. What is the integer assigned to N?

3) A question paper must have a question on one of the eight poets: A, B, C, D, E, F, G or H. The first four belong to the medieval period while the rest are considered modern poets. Generally, modern poets figure in the question paper in alternate years. Generally those who like H like G also; and those who like F like E also. The paper-setter does not like to ask about F as he has written a book on F, but he likes F. Last year, the paper contained a question on A. On the basis of the information given, this years paper is most likely to contain a question on
a) c
b) e
c) f
d) d

4) In a row A is in the 11th position from the left and B is in the 10th position from the right. If A and B interchange, then A becomes 18th from the left. How many persons are there in the row other than A and B?
