The price of a product is P. A shopkeeper raises its price by X% and then offers a discount of Y% on the raised price. The discounted price again becomes P. If Y is the difference between X and Y, then find X.
A mixture comprises water and liquids A and B. The volume of water is 1/3 of the total mixture and the volume of liquids A and B are in the ratio 5:3. To remove the water, the mixture is passed through a porous medium which completely absorbs the water and partially absorbs liquid A. Altogether this porous medium absorbs 200 ml of the initial mixture. If the ratio of volume of liquids A and B in the residual concentrated mixture becomes 7:9 then find the volume of water absorbed by the porous medium.

Every day a person walks at a constant speed, V1 for 30 minutes. On a particular day, after walking for 10 minutes at V1 , he rested for 5 minutes. He finished the remaining distance of his regular walk at a constant speed, V2 , in another 30 minutes. On that day, find the ratio of V2 and his average speed
(i.e., total distance covered /total time taken including resting time).
A boat, stationed at the North of a lighthouse, is making an angle of 30° with the top of the lighthouse. Simultaneously, another boat, stationed at the East of the same lighthouse, is making an angleof 45° with the top of the lighthouse. What will be the shortest distance between these two boats? The height of the lighthouse is 300 feet. Assume both the boats are of negligible dimensions.
Two different quadratic equations have a common root. Let the three unique roots of the two equations be A, B and C - all of them are positive integers. If (A + B + C) = 41 and the product of the roots of one of the equations is 35, which of the following options is definitely correct?
An antique store has a collection of eight clocks. At a particular moment, the displayed times on seven of the eight clocks were as follows: 1:55 pm, 2:03 pm, 2:11 pm, 2:24 pm, 2:45 pm, 3:19 pm and 4:14 pm. If the displayed times of all eight clocks form a mathematical series, then what was the displayed time on the remaining clock?
The number of boys in a school was 30 more than the number of girls. Subsequently, a few more girls joined the same school. Consequently, the ratio of boys and girls became 3:5. Find the minimum number of girls, who joined subsequently.
A girl travels along a straight line, from point A to B at a constant speed, V1 meters/sec for T seconds. Next, she travels from point B to C along a straight line, at a constant speed of V2 meters/sec for another T seconds. BC makes an angle 105° with AB. If CA makes an angle 30° with BC, how much time will she take to travel back from point C to A at a constant speed of V2 meters/sec, if she travels along a straight line from C to A?
In the final semester, an engineering college offers three elective courses and one mandatory course. A student has to register for exactly three courses: two electives and the mandatory course. The registration in three of the four courses is: 45, 55 and 70. What will be the number of students in the elective with the lowest registration?
X and Y are the digits at the unit's place of the numbers (408X) and (789Y) where X ≠ Y. However, the digits at the unit's place of the numbers (408X)63 and (789Y)85 are the same. What will be the possible value(s) of (X + Y)?
Example: If M = 3 then the digit at unit's place of the number (2M) is 3 (as the number is 23) and the digit at unit's place of the number (2M)2 is 9 (as 232 is 529).
If 2 ≤ |x – 1|×|y + 3| ≤ 5 and both x and y are negative integers, find the number of possible combinations of x and y.
David has an interesting habit of spending money. He spends exactly £X on the Xth day of a month. For example, he spends exactly £5 on the 5th of any month. On a few days in a year, David noticed that his cumulative spending during the last 'four consecutive days' can be expressed as 2N where N is a natural number. What can be the possible value(s) of N?
A cone of radius 4 cm with a slant height of 12 cm was sliced horizontally, resulting into a smaller cone (upper portion) and a frustum (lower portion). If the ratio of the curved surface area of the upper smaller cone and the lower frustum is 1:2, what will be the slant height of the frustum?
Two circles with radius 2R and √2R intersect each other at points A and B. The centers of both the circles are on the same side of AB. O is the center of the bigger circle and ∠AOB is 60°. Find the area of the common region between two circles.

Six teams are playing in a hockey tournament where each team is playing against every other team exactly once. At an intermediate stage, the status is as follows:
1. The team that scores more goals than it concedes wins the match, while if both the teams score the same no. of goals, the match is declared drawn.
2. In a match played between Team X and Team Y , if team Xscores 1 and concedes none, then the score line would read: Team X-Team Y (1-0).

The graphs below represent the performance of four professors, across years, measured on four variables: Percentage of time spent on teaching, percentage of time spent on research, feedback (on a scale of 10, right-hand side) and number of publications (right-hand side). Assume that the cumulative time spent per year on research and teaching activities are same for all four professors and each of them taught only one course of 90 classroom hours.
Which of the following, shows the maximum year to year percentage growth in feedback?
Count the number of instances in which "annual decreasing efforts in research" is accompanied with "annual increase in feedback"?
