1) A water tank is hemispherical below and cylindrical at the top. If the radius is $12$ m and capacity is $3312\pi$ cubic metre, the height of the cylindrical portion in metres is:

2) If three metallic spheres of radii $6$ cms, $8$ cms and $10$ cms are melted to from a single sphere, the diameter of the new sphere will be:

3) Sixty men can build a wall in $40$ days, but though they begin the work together, $5$ men quit every ten days. The time needed to build the wall is:

4) Shyam is travelling on his cycle and has calculated to reach point 'A' at $2$ PM If he travels at $10$ kmph. he will reach there at $12$ noon if he travels at $15$ kmph. At what speed must he travel to reach point 'A' at $1$ PM:

5) An aeroplane travelling at $700$ kmph in level flight drops a bomb from a height of $1000$ metres on a target. The time taken from releasing the bomb to hitting the target is nearest to the figure:

6) In a History examination, the average for the entire class was $80$ marks. If $10\%$ of the students scored $95$ marks and $20\%$ scored $90$ marks. What was the average marks of the remaining students of the class

3) Total man days $=2400$

$60×10+55×10+50×10+45×10=2100$ man days
$\dfrac{300}{40}=7.5$ days

Total days $=10+10+10+10+7.5=47.5$ days

2) $\dfrac{4}{3}×\dfrac{22}{7}×r×r×r=\dfrac{4}{3}×\dfrac{22}{7}×(216+512+1000)$

1) Volume, V $=\dfrac{22}{7}×12×12\left(\dfrac{4}{3}×12×\dfrac{1}{2}+h\right)=3312×\dfrac{22}{7}$
h=23-8=15\text{ m}$

we will have to take up physics formulae for 5th one

here $s=1000$
$u=0$ (initial speed)
$a=g=9.8$ m/s2

So time can be calculated as $14.14$ sec

Answer for Q2:
If three metallic spheres melted down and formed a new sphere, volume of all three sphere will be equivalent to the volume of new sphere and final equation will be

\Rightarrow 216+512+1000=R^3\\
\Rightarrow R=1728^{1/3}\\
\Rightarrow R=12\text{ cm}$

Hence, diameter of the new sphere will be $(2R)$
i.e $24$ cm.

4. Since distance is same,
$s_1×t_1=s_2×t_2\quad$($s_1=10$ kmph, $s_2=15$ kmph)
$10(14-t)=15(12-t)\quad$ ($2$ o'clock on $24$ hrs clock is $14,$ while $12$ is $12$)
$140-10t=180-15t\quad$ ($t$ is the start time)
$t=8$ hrs, means he had started journey at $8$ am

d=60\text{ km}$

Time to reach destination $=13-8=5$ hrs
Speed $=\dfrac{d}{t}=\dfrac{60}{5}=12$ kmph

$4.$ Since we do not know at what time Shyam actually sets on his journey, we will consider any one of the time limits provided (either $12$ p.m or $2$ p.m) to be taking $x$ hours from the time he started, that is we have to consider either duration to be $x$ (or $y$ or $z$ or whatever you wish to take) hours. Now, if we consider this for $2$ p.m, then by time = distance/speed, we have


Now, $(x-2)=\dfrac{d}{15}$
$\Rightarrow 15x-30=d\\
\Rightarrow 15x=30+d\\
\Rightarrow x=\dfrac{d+30}{15}~~\cdots(2)$

From $(1)$ and $(2)$, we have
\Rightarrow 10d+300=15d\\
\Rightarrow 5d=300\\
\Rightarrow d=60\text{ km}$

[We are talking about $1$ p.m and we have chosen the time duration of up to to $2$ p.m to be $x$, so up to $1$ p.m,it is $(x-1)$ hours]

So,the time taken up to $1$ p.m is $5$ hours.
Therefore, speed = distance/time $=\dfrac{60}{5}$ km/hr
$=12$ km/hr
