Question Detail
A flagstaff 17.5 metre high casts a shadow of length 40.25 metre. The height of building, which casts a shadow of length 28.75 metre under similar conditions will be :
 12 metre
 12.5 metre
 13.5 metre
 14 metre
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
Less shadow, Less Height (Direct Proportion)
So, let height of building be x metre
then,
\begin{aligned}
40.25 : 17.5 :: 28.75 : x \\
=> x = \frac{17.5*28.75}{40.25} \\
=> x = 12.5
\end{aligned}
So height of building should be 12.5 metre
1. 36 men can complete a piece of work in 18 days. In how many days will 27 men complete the same work ?
 24 days
 28 days
 34 days
 35 days
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
Less Men, means more Days {Indirect Proportion}
Let the number of days be x
then,
27 : 36 :: 18 : x
[Please pay attention, we have written 27 : 36 rather than 36 : 27, in indirect proportion, if you get it then chain rule is clear to you :)]
\begin{aligned}
x = \frac{36*18}{27} \\
x = 24
\end{aligned}
So 24 days will be required to get work done by 27 men.
2. 4 matweavers can weave 4 mats in 4 days. At the same rate, how many mats would be woven by 8 mat weavers in 8 days ?
 12
 14
 16
 18
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
Please always remember, that what exactly we need to calculate before applying chain formula. As in this question we need to find how many mats, RIGHT !
So we will compare everything with "number of mats"
As,
More men, More number of mats (Direct Proportion)
More days, More number of mats (Direct Proportion)
So, it can be solved as,
\begin{aligned}
\begin{bmatrix}Weavers & 4 & 8 \\Days & 4 & 8 \end{bmatrix} :: 4 : x \\
=> x*4*4 = 8*8*4 \\
=> x = 16
\end{aligned}
3. In a camp, there is a meal for 120 men or 200 children. If 150 children have taken the meal, how many men will be catered to with the remaining meal ?
 38 men
 32 men
 34 men
 30 men
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
There is meal for 200 children. 150 children have taken the meal.
Remaining meal is to be catered to 50 children.
Now, 200 children = 120 men
So, 50 Children = 120/200 * 50 = 30 men
4. If the price of 23 toys is 276, then what will the price of 12 toys ?
 144
 148
 156
 186
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
Less toys, Less Price (Direct Proportion)
So, let the price be Rs. x
then,
\begin{aligned}
23:12 :: 276:x
=> x = \frac{276*12}{23} \\
=> x = 144
\end{aligned}
So price of 12 toys will be Rs. 144
