The questions are tough.

for the fifth one i think i got the answer :๐

(0!+0!+0!+0!+0!)!
=>(1+1+1+1+1)! (since0!=1)
=>5!=120

am i correct :?:

K: I don't understand this question. ๐

5:-Can you make 120 with 5 zeros?

K: cos 0 = 1 ๐ (wink!)
yes biggie you are right for 1st and 2nd question only
One more question to add you have two candles each will burn for 1 hour individually ie one candle will take 1 hour to burn completely.Now if you are asked to burn both of these candle for 90 minutes ie both candles must burn in 90 minutes?Can you explain me how?
cooltwins • Jan 16, 2010
by melting them and casting them as one we can extend the burning time more right ๐
or do you want to make them burn to 90 min each :roll:

can you please be more specific.... :-o
Each candle take 1 hour to complete

My question is to burn both candles in such a way that both will take 90 minutes collectively

ie total time should be 90 minutes to burn both

First light up the two ends of the 1st candle and one end of the 2nd candle.

When the 1st candle will burn out ,then light up the other end of the 2nd candle too

4th ques:

If you throw a ball to the any direction ,due to heavy air in opposite direction it return to your place and u can able to catch the ball by not moving from your original place.

4th ques

Throw the ball on the wall
it will rebound and u can catch it standing at your own place in the very same direction

Okay it was kind of easy for me
I heard similar question few years back which i quite correctly remember
Although i don't know it was really a aptitude question or my cousin fooling around
The question was
Everyone was showed the window of the room.
and asked to jump from the window

but a guy climbed on the window pane
and jumped back in the room
and he was selected
So applied kind of same logic
The question was
Everyone was showed the window of the room.

we have two candles have to burn completely in 90 minutes
we will start second candle after 30 minutes of the first candle
sherya mathur • Feb 19, 2010
for 45 minutes start burning the one candle from both ends and at the same time start burning second one from the one end
lets see after 30 minutes the the first one will completely burnt out
and second one will out half now
lit the second end of the second candle it will take 15 minute to completely burnt

1) Place thermometer perpendicular to the floor and against the wall.
2) Make a mark on the wall at the top of the thermometer.
3) Shift thermometer up so bottom is at mark.
4) Repeat 2) and 3) until close to the ceiling.
5) Shift thermometer up until it touches ceiling and mark location of highest mark on thermometer to determine fraction of thermometer length for last segment.

This would give the height of the room in units of "thermometers". This is not a standard unit of measurement, but it is a measurement. If you desire a more standard unit like centimeters, then measure the length of the thermometer and multiply by height of the room in "thermometers".

-How would you catch and receive a ball in same direction? (Dropping is from north
and receiving from bottom not accepted, as it is 2 directions)

isnt it the same? catching a ball or receiving a ball?
Anunay Sinha • Mar 23, 2014
he meant throwing and recieving the ball.

and i think the simplest way is to use the ball in pendulum, push it in any direction, wait for it to reach the extreme position in opposite direction, then recieve it in between. ๐

There are 3 people A,B,C. Liars are of same type and truth speaking are of same type. Find out who is speaking truth and who is speaking false when they say:

A says, B is liar.

B says, A and C are of same type.
