Time Speed and Distance 


There is an escalator going up from the ground floor to the first floor. Varsha is climbing up the escalator while Sumit is climbing down (from the first floor to the ground floor) on the same escalator. On a stationary escalator, the time taken by Sumit to climb 8 steps is same as the time taken by Varsha to climb 6 steps. On the moving escalator, if Varsha takes 18 steps to reach the first floor while Sumit takes 60 steps to reach the ground floor, how many steps are there on the escalator?

Arithmetic 


The individual earnings of A, B and C are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 8 and their individual spending are in the ratio 2 : 3 : 5. If the individual earnings of A is equal to the individual spending of C, then what is the ratio of the individual savings of B and C?

Numbers 


How many different positive integral values, less than 1000, y = x[x] can take where x is a positive real number.

Note:- [x] is greatest integer less than or equal to x
For eg.  [3.5] = 3, as 3 is the largest integer less than or equal to 3.5
Similarly [4] = 4, [3.99] = 3
1. 31
2. 496
3. 30
4. None of these
