The total number of digits used in numbering the pages of a book having 366 pages is?

A)
732

B)
990

C)
1098

D)
1305


Correct Answer :

990


Explanation :

Total number of digits= No. of digits in 1- digit page nos.(1 to 9) + No. of digits in 2-digit page nos.(10 to 99) + No. of digits in 3- digit page nos(100 to 999).

First 9 pages having 1 digit nos (1x9=9 digits).
Next 90 pages having 2 digit nos (2 x 90=180 digits).
Remaining 267 pages having 3 digit nos (267x3 = 801 digits)

So total will be = (1 x 9 + 2 x 90 + 3 x 267) = (9 + 180 + 801) = 990.

In a garden, there are 10 rows and 12 coloumns of mango trees. The distance between two trees is 2 meters and a distance of one meter is left from all sides of the boundary of the garden. The length of the garden is?

Total number of poles needed = 27 x 4 - 4 = 108 - 4 = 104.

Which of the following operations will result in 22?

A)
16 / 12 + 8 - 13 * 15

B)
16 - 12 * 8 / 13 + 15

C)
16 * 12 / 8 + 13 - 15

D)
16 + 12 - 8 * 13 / 15


Correct Answer :

16 * 12 / 8 + 13 - 15


Explanation :

16 * 12 / 8 + 13 - 15
=((16*12) / 8) + 13 -15
= 24 + 13 - 15
= 37 - 15
= 22

If 6★5 = 31, 7★8 = 57, 3★4 = 13, then 9★10 = ?

A)
90

B)
91

C)
81

D)
19


Correct Answer :

91


Explanation :

As, 6★5 = 6 * 5 + 1 = 31
7★8 = 7 * 8 + 1 = 57
and 3★4 = 3 * 4 + 1 = 13
Similarly, 9★10 = 9 * 10 + 1 = 91

If 879 = 8, 625 = 1 and 586 = 9 then, 785 = ?

A)
6

B)
7

C)
8

Correct Answer :

6


Explanation :

879 => (7 + 9) - 8 = 8
625 => (2 + 5) - 6 = 1
and 586 => (8 + 6) - 5 = 9
Similarly, 785 => (8 + 5) - 7 = 6

If given, 12 (169) 5, 4 (20) 2 and 1 (26) 5 then 7 (--) 3 ?

42 + 22 => 16 + 4 = 20
and 12 + 52 => 1 + 25 = 26
Similarly, 72 + 32 => 49 + 9 = 58
