Directions (1 – 10): Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/ phrases are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

In 2015(IHR) the Global Nutrition Report (GNR) and India Health Report on Nutrition(IHR), offer a critical analysis of the state of nutrition in India. The first report was, the India Health Report: The state-wise data dashboards it gives a comprehensive view of nutrition 2015(IHR) and its determinants, and provides easy-to-understand, It looks at disparities in these outcomes and their multiple determinants across geographical regions, socio-economic classes, and demographic groups to help identify strategic choices for policy-making at the State level. In turn, GNR assesses progress in reducing malnutrition for all 193 countries. It concludes that while India is on track to meeting only two of the eight global targets on nutrition, it has significantly improved its nutrition performance in the past 10 years. GNR notes that there has been a big increase in the number of countries on track to meet global nutrition targets, and encourages countries, including India, to establish specific and time-bound targets for malnutrition reduction that are consistent with the new Sustainable Development Goals. Together, thesereports paint several pictures about India, a data-poor country. They portray one of great progress in improving nutrition across India; stunting among children, a marker of the most persistent types of malnutrition, has declined rapidly in the last ten years. And this decline has been faster than in many other countries. But as we dig deeper, there are diverse pictures about the life conditions of Indian children — positive stories about children’s lives and futures in Goa, Kerala, Manipur and Tamil Nadu, but dismal ones in Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh. What cannot be debated is the reality of deep, systemic inequality; of inequality in the circumstances that children are born into, that they live and grow in. For those of us who are worried about India’s economic growth, these are also pictures of inequality that point to how well these children will be able to contribute to India’s economic growth and their own prosperity. Their poor nutrition stunts more than their bodies. It stunts their well-being, and, consequentially, that of their home States and their nation. Two other things, both related to inequality, stand out as well in the data. First, the data point to tremendous variability across States in delivering what should be universal, rights-based and already mandated health and nutrition services. For example, sample this for intra-State disparity. Food provided by the Integrated Child Development Services reaches barely 1 in 5 children in Uttar Pradesh but over 90 per cent in Odisha. Less than 33 per cent of children in Nagaland are fully immunised; in Goa, it is more than 90 per cent. Close to 80 per cent defecate in the open in Odisha; barely 2 per cent do so in Kerala. Why?

These are disparities across States that operate in the same national framework, and there is, let’s face it, no good reason for this other than an inability or unwillingness to invest in changing ground realities, for everyone and everywhere. This is not an insurmountable challenge and it’s certainly an area where States can, if they want it, make dramatic change in short timeframes. Examples abound from within India. The data in the reports show that, clearly, the imperative for introspection, and looking within for solutions was never clearer. No child should go without basic health care, food security and things like water and a toilet. Indeed, no adult should either. No society should condone such inequalities in the basics. And no society has progressed without addressing these basics.

1. A spiral is made up of 12 successive semi-circles with centre at X and Y, starting with centre at X. The radii of semi-circles thus developed are 1.0 cm, 2.0 cm, 3.0 cm and 4.0 cm and so on. The total length in the spiral is

(A) 245cm (B) 143 cm (C) 174 cm (D) 194 cm (E) None of these



10 arithmetic progression exercise solution

Circumference of first semicircle = 1π

Circumference of second circumference= 2π

Circumference of third circumference= 3π

It is clear that a = 1 π, d = 1π and n = 12

Hence; length of spiral can be calculated as follows

\(s=\frac{n}{2}\times (2a+(n-1)d)\) \(s=\frac{12}{2}\times (2\prod +(12-1)\prod )\) \(s=\frac{12}{2}\times (2\prod +11\prod )\) \(s=\frac{12}{2}\times (13\prod )\)

Let the five consecutive numbers be 2(x-2), 2(x-1), 2x, 2(x+1), 2(x+2).

\(10x= 440\) \(x= 44\)

Second least \(= 2(84)-121= 47\)

This set as its least number as 46

\(46+47+48+49+50 = (48-2)+(48-1)+(48)+(48+1)+(48+2) = 240= 5(48)\)

\(X-40000-35000= \frac{28X}{100}\) \(X-75000= \frac{28X}{100}\) \(\frac{(100X-28X)}{100}= 75000\) \(\frac{(72X)}{100}= 75000\) \(X= \frac{75000\times 100}{72}\) \(X=104167\)

5. Anita got married 9 yr ago. Today her age is 3/4 times her age at the time of marriage. At present, her daughter’s age is one-fifth of her age. What was her daughter’s age two years ago?

(A) 120% (B) 80% (C) 125% (D) 75% (E) 95%



Required percentage

\(= \frac{3+27}{24}\times 100\) \(= 125%\)

10. Find the ratio between the total number of cases in the five states to that in the rest of country in 2011.

(A) 9 : 67 (B) 2 : 29 (C) 29 : 4 (D) 9 : 58 (E) None of these

(A) 144 (B) 121 (C) 194 (D) 169 (E) 256



11*11=121, 12*12=144, 13*13=169, 14*14=196, 15*15=169, 16*16=256.

Directions (21 – 25): Study the pie-charts carefully and answer the questions based on it.


21. Total number of luxury watches sold by stores C and H together is by what percent less than total number of watches (sports watches and luxury watches) sold by stores F and H together?

(A) 295/6 (B) 273/7 (C) 313/5 (D) 284/7 (E) 265/9



Sports watch and luxury watches: sports watches: Luxury watches:

A=18% =10080 A=16% =5120 A=10080-5120=4960

B=11% =6160 B=16%=5120 B=6160-5120=1040

C=14% =560 C=7%=2240 C=2240-560=1680

D=15% =8400 D=13%=4160 D=8400-4160=4240

E=20% = 11200 E=22%=7040 E=11200-7040=4160

F=8% =4480 F=8%=2560 F=4480-2560=1920

G=5% =2800 G=6%=1920 G=2800-1920=880

H= 9% = 5040 H=12%=3840 H=5040-3840=1200

Luxury watches = C+H


Sports watches+ luxury watches = F+H

4480+5040 = 9520

\(\frac{2880}{9520}\times 100= 30\)


22. Number of watches (sports watches and luxury watches) sold by store D is by what percent more than total number of sports watches sold by stores C, F and G together ?

(A) 22.5 (B) 25 (C) 27.5 (D) 35 (E) 30



Number of watches (sports and luxury watches) sold by store ID = 15% of 56000 = 8400

Number of sports watches sold by stores C, F and G together

\(= (7+8+6)%(32000)\) \(= 21%(32000)= 6720\)

Therefore, required percentage

\(= \frac{(8400-6720)}{6720}\times 100\) \(= \frac{1680}{6720}\times 100\) \(= 25%\)

23. What is the respective ratio between total number of sports watches sold by stores A and B together and total number of watches (sports and luxury) sold by stores C and F together?

(A) 64 : 77 (B) 48 : 61 (C) 56 : 77 (D) 64 : 81 (E) 48 : 73



Total number of sports watches sold by stores A and B together

\(= (16+16)%(32000)\) \(= 32%(32000)\) \(= 10240\)

Total number of watches (sports and luxury) sold by stores C and F together

\(= (14+8)%(56000)= 22%(56000)= 12320\)

Therefore, required ratio = 10240 : 12320 = 64 : 77

24.The average number of luxury watches sold by stores A,D, E, F and H together is?

(A) 3152 (B) 3296 (C) 3548 (D) 3186 (E) 3428





\(\frac{16480}{5}\) \(= 3296\)

25. If the number of watches sold by stores A, D, and E increased by 10%, 35%, and 15% respectively from 2012 to 2013 what was the total number of luxury watches sold by these three stores in 2013?

(A) 16172 (B) 14966 (C) 15848 (D) 15964 (E) 16392

(A) If x < y

(B) If x ≤ y

(C) If x > y

(D) If x ≥ y

(E) If x = y or the relation cannot be established.

26. I. x2 – 7x + 120 = 0

II. y2 – 8y + 240 = 0

27. I. x2 – 33x + 200 = 0

II. y2 – 27y + 180 = 0

28 . I. x2 – 14x + 49 = 0

II. y2 = 49

29. On selling 17 balls at Rs. 720, there is a loss equal to the cost price of 5 balls. What is the price of the ball?

(A) RS. 43 (B) RS. 56 (C) RS. 60 (D) RS. 49 (E) RS. 57

30. A person crosses a 600 meters long street in 5 minutes. What is his speed in km per per hour?
