1. The average of the first fifteen natural numbers is

Correct Answers :

[D]

Explanation :

Required average = (1 + 2 + 3 + … + 15)/15 = 120/15 = 8. Alternately you could use the formula for sum of the first n natural numbers as n (n + 1)/2 with n as 15. Then average = Sum/15 = (15 x 16/2)/ 15 = 8

2. The average of the first ten whole numbers is

Correct Answers :

[A]

Explanation :

Required average = (0 + 1 + 2 + … + 9)/10 = 45/10 = 4.5

3. The average of the first ten even numbers is

Correct Answers :

[D]

Explanation :

Required average = (2 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 10 + 12 + 14 + 16 + 18 + 20)/10 = 110/10 = 11. Alternately you could use the formula for sum of the first n even natural numbers as n (n + 1) with n as 10. Then average = Sum/10 = 10 x 11/10 = 11.

4. The average of the first ten odd numbers is

Correct Answers :

[B]

Explanation :

The sum of the first n odd numbers = n2. In this case n = 10 --> Sum = 10^{2} = 100. Required average = 100/10 = 10.

5. The average of the first ten prime numbers is

Correct Answers :

[D]

Explanation :

Required average = (2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29)/10 = 129/10 = 12.9.

6. The average of the first ten composite numbers is

Correct Answers :

[C]

Explanation :

Required average = (4 + 6 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 12 + 14+ 15 + 16 + 18)/10 = 112/10 = 11.2.

7. The average of the first ten prime numbers, which
are odd, is

Correct Answers :

[D]

Explanation :

Required average = (3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19+ 23 + 29 + 31)/10 = 158/10 = 15.8.

8. The average age of 13 boys and the principal is
10 years. When the principal’s age is excluded, the average age decreases by 2 year. What is the age of
the principal?

Correct Answers :

[B]

Explanation :

P = 14 x 10 – 13 x 8 = 140 –104 = 36

9. The average weight of 3 boys A, B and C is 74 kg.
Another boy D joins the group and the average now becomes 70 kg. If another boy E, whose weight is 3
kg more than that of D, replaces A then the average weight of B, C, D and E becomes 75 kg. The weight
of A is

Correct Answers :

[D]

Explanation :

D's weight = 4 x 70 – 3 x 74 = 280 – 222 = 58.
E's weight = 58 + 3 = 61.

Now, we know that A + B + C + D = 4 x 70 = 280
and B + C + D + E = 75 x 4 = 300. Hence, A's
weight is 20 kg less than E 's weight. A = 61 - 20= 41 kg.

10. The mean temperature of Monday to Wednesday was
35 °C and of Tuesday to Thursday was 30 °C. If the temperature on Thursday was ½ that of Monday, the
temperature on Thursday was

Correct Answers :

[B]

Explanation :

Monday + Tuesday + Wednesday = 3 x 35 = 105; Tuesday + Wednesday + Thursday = 3 x 30 = 90.Thus, Monday – Thursday = 15 and Thursday = Monday/2 --> Monday = 30 and Thursday= 15

11. Five years ago, the average age of *A*, *B* and *C* was
25 years and that of *B* and *C* 10 years ago was 20 years. *A*'s present age is

Correct Answers :

[A]

Explanation :

Total present age of A, B and C = 25 x 3 + 15 = 75+ 15 = 90.

Total present age of B and C = 20 x 2 + 20 = 60.A 's age = 90 – 60 = 30.

12. Ganguly has a certain average for 4 innings. In the
5th inning, he scores 40 runs thereby increasing his average by 4 runs. His new average is

Correct Answers :

[B]

Rs.2250 for the first 3 months, Rs.2150 for the next three months and Rs. 5750 for the next three months. Find
the average income of the family for the 9 months, if they save Rs.500 per month.

and Friday was 20 °C. The average for Thursday, Friday and Saturday was 21 °C. If the temperature
on Saturday was 22 °C, what was the temperature on Wednesday?
