HURDLE-09 : CISTERN

(Solve this Hurdle by 3rd March)

A tank of 600 liters. Pipe A can fill the tank alone in 20 hours. Pipe B can fill the tank alone in 10 hours. Pipe C can empty the tank in 24 hours and Pipe D can empty the tank in 120 hours.

Q1(a). The 4 pipes (A,B,C,D) are put into action one by one for 1 hour each in the sequence. In how many hours will the tank be full.
Q1(b). 3 pipes ( B,C, D) are put into action one by one for 1 hour each in the sequence and there is no action during every fourth hour. In how many hours will the tank be full.


A tank of capacity 5000 liters has 4 inlet pipes. The first inlet pipe can fill the tank in 50 hours alone and so can the second one. The third pipe can fill the tank alone in 200 hours and so can the fourth one. There are 2 outlet pipe, each one of which can drain the tank out in 100 hours. Also there are 5 leaks on the tank, each of the leak can empty the tank in 1,000 hours when working independently.
Q2. If all the inlets pipes, outlet pipes and the leaks are working together in how many hours can the tank be full.
Q3. If all the leaks are repaired and all the outlet pipes are closed in how many hours will the tank be full.
Q4. If the tank is full and all the inlet pipes are closed and all the leaks and outlet pipes are allowed to work, in how many hours will the tank empty.

----------------------------
A tank has 5 inlet pipes. Two of the inlet pipe are of same capacity and each one of them fill the tank at rate of 20 litres per hour when working independently. The reaming three inlet pipes are of similar type and each of them fill the tank at rate of them fill the tank at 40 litres/ hour. There are 10 outlet pipes attached to the tank which are of two types. The first type which are 2 in numbers empty the tank at rate of 10 litres/ hour each when working independently. (UrPercentile.com) The second type are 8 in numbers and each one of them empty the tank at rate of 5 litres per hour. When all the inlet and outlet pipes are working together it takes
80 hours for the tank to fill.
Q5. What is the capacity of the tank.
Q6. How much time will it take to fill the tank if only the inlet pipes are working?
Q7. How much time will it take to empty the full tank if only the outlet pipes are working.
Q8. If bottom of another tank of similar capacity is connected to the bottom of first tank with a pipe of diameter 10 cms , in how many hours will the two tanks get full if all the above mentioned inlet and outlet pipes are working. Consider the volume of the connecting pipe as negligible.

-------------------------------
A tank has a capacity of 6,500 litres. There are 4 inlet pipes attached to the tank. The first inlet pipe can fill the tank in 65 hours and so can the second one. The third and the fourth inlet pipe are of same capacity. (UrPercentile.com) There are 2 outlet pipe each one of which can drain at capacity of 50 litres/ hour. There are five leaks on the tank, each one of which independently can drain the tank out in 1,300 hours. When all the inlet pipes , out let pipes and leaks are working together the tank get s full in 52 hours.
9) What is the capacity of third and fourth inlet pipe.
10) If the leaks are repaired and the outlet pipes are blocked in how many hours will the tank get full.
11) In how many hours will the full tank get empty if all the inlet pipe are closed and the leaks and outlet pipes are allowed to work.

-----------------------------
A tank has 9 inlets pipes and 6 outlet pipes. Out of the 9 inlet pipes 8 are of same capacity. The ninth inlet pipe is 4 time more powerful than each of the remaining 8 inlet pipes. (UrPercentile.com) When all the inlet pipes are working and no
outlet pipe is working they fill at rate of 120 litres per hour and it takes 60 hours to fill the tank. Out of the six outlet pipes 5 are of same kind and each one of them drain out at rate of 5 litres per hour while the sixth one drains at the rate of 15 litres per hour.
Q 12. What is the capacity of the tank.
Q13. When all the inlet pipes and outlet pipes are working in how many hours will be the tank full.
Q14. If the tank is full and all the outlet pipes are working and inlet pipes are not working in how many hours will the tank be empty.

---------------------------------
A tank has a capacity of 2100 litres. It has two inlet pipes, each one of which can fill the tank individually in 105 hours. 6 more inlet pipes are attached to the tank.
Q15. What should be the capacity of each of the six inlet pipes attached so that the tank can full in 21 hours when all 8 inlet pipes work together.
Q16. What should be a capacity of a outlet pipe which if working together with above mentioned 8 inlet pipes makes the tank fullin 30 hours.

-------------------------------
A tank has a capacity 7500 litres. There are 15 inlet pipes each one of which can individually fill the tank in 150 hours. There are 7 outlet pipes. 6 of the outlet pipes are of same capacity and can individually drain the tank in 300 hours each. The seventh can drain the tank in 75 hours.
Q17. In how many hours will the tank fill if all the inlet and outlet pipes are working. (UrPercentile.com)
Q18. In how many hours will the tank get full, if all the inlet and outlet pipes except the one which can drain the tank out in 75 hours are working.
Q19. In how many hour can the full tank be emptied if only the 7 outlet pipes are working.

READING COMPREHENSIVE (RC)

Read the article below and answer the question mentioned after the passage :

Source: Danny Reviews

" Loosely based on historical events, Strandloper tells the story of William Buckley, who is transported to Australia, escapes, becomes an Aboriginal law-giver and healer, and returns to England thirty years later. This is a plot with obvious potential, but what Garner does with it is completely original: in Strandloper he has produced one of the most innovative novels in years.

The immediately startling thing about Strandloper is its language. It is dominated by dialogue (and some stream of consciousness) and Garner reproduces a multitude of voices with their colloquial idioms: we begin in the Cheshire countryside, with characters speaking dialect English; on board ship we add to this thieves' cant, Irish brogue, and even Latin; and in Australia words from various Aboriginal languages. Throughout there is repetition of nursery rhymes, chants, and nonsense syllables, which also takes some getting used to. The narration, in unadorned modern English, complements this nicely and has a poetry of its own.

What makes Strandloper really extraordinary, however, is its ethnographic depth. Enmeshing the reader in an alien culture is never easy, but Garner attempts it twice in the one short novel (eighteenth century rural England being in some ways as foreign to the modern reader as Aboriginal Australia). Garner's earlier children's novels demonstrated his affinity for English folklore and myth; in Strandloper he demonstrates an equally impressive feel for Aboriginal culture. Even more ambitiously, he hints at links between the two, at a shared pattern. Hubris would be a reasonable accusation, were it not that he succeeds so well!

This probably makes Strandloper sound unreadable, but that is not the case at all. Once one adapts to its rhythms and its language and the intensity of the engagement it demands, it moves along as compellingly as any mundane thriller could. Though it is finished all too quickly, when the end is reached it is as if five hundred pages rather than two have passed, so much does it hold. Strandloper is definitely out of the ordinary."

Q26. What makes Strandloper sound unreadable ? ( Select the best option)
1) It is loosely based on historical events.
2) The language used .
3) The author tries to establish link between two cultures and does not do it well.
4) The length of the novel.
