A potter asked his two sons to sell some pots in the market. The amount received for each pot was same as the number of pots sold. The two brothers spent the entire amount on some packets of potato chips and one packet of banana chips. One brother had the packet of banana chips along with some packets of potato chips, while the other brother just had potato chips. Each packet of potato chips costs 10/- and the packet of banana chips costs less than 10/-. The packets of chips were divided between the two brothers so each brother received equal number of packets. How much money should one brother give to the other to make the division financially equitable?

× 2 The numbers from 1 to m are written one after another as follows 1234567&&.m. The resulting number is divisible by 3 if m is of the form (n is a natural number):
I. 3n
II. 3n - 1
III. 3n - 2

1. A I only 37%
2. B I and II only 31%
3. C I and III only 23%
4. D II and III only 9%

A rural child specialist has to determine the weight of five children of different ages. He knows from his past experience that each of the children would weigh less than 30 Kg and each of them would have different weights. Unfortunately, the scale available in the village can measure weight only over 30 Kg. The doctor decides to weigh the children in pairs. However, his new assistant weighed the children without noting down the names. The weights were: 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42, 45, 46 and 47 Kg. The weight of the lightest
child is:

1. A 15 32%
2. B 16 25%
3. C 17 29%
4. D 18 13%
5. E 20 1%

As each child appears for four times in the given ten pairs,

Sum of the weights of the five children = 408 / 4 = 102

Let weight of the lightest child and that of hevaiest child be x

and y

Then the weight of the second lightest child = 35 - x

The weight of the third lightest child = 36 - x

The weight of the second heaviest child = 47 - y

(x + 35 - x + 36 - x + y + 47 - y) = 102

=> x = 16 Question of the Day!
