6 Bananas can be transported to the city.

The camel carries 15 bananas for a kilometer and comes back (15 bananas becomes 13). It carries the second set of 15 bananas for a kilometer and comes back (15 bananas becomes 13). It carries the third set of 15 bananas for a kilometer (15 bananas becomes 14). Now we have 40 bananas which has to be carried for 14 kilometers.

At the end of the second kilometer the total number of bananas becomes 35.
At the end of the third kilometer the total number of bananas becomes 30.

5 :: A Father, son and grandson are walking in the park. A man approaches them and asks for their age. The Father replies, "My son is as many weeks as my grandson is in days, and my grandson is as many months old as I am in years. We are all 100 years together.
60,35,5?

The detail solution to this question is like this.

Let's Say father's age in year is Y yr. Son's age in weeks is x week, which if converted to year is 7x/365yr. Now as per the question,

The Father replies, "My son is as many weeks as my grandson is in days

so grandson's age in days is X days.,which if converted to year is x/365 yr.

So 1st equation: y+7x/365+x/365 = 100....................(1)

Father says My grandson is as many months old as I am in years.

means, grandson is y months old,b'coz father is y yrs old.So equating grandson's age in days(x days) from above statement with his age in months (y month),both converted in years, gives us

x/365 = y/12.......................(2)

solving these two equations gives y=60 in years,that is father' age.grandson is as many months old as father is in years.So grandson's age is 60 months,i.e 5yrs,which converted to days is 1825 days.As son's age is as many weeks as grandson's age is in days.So son's age is 1825 weeks,that is converted in yrs is 1825*7/365=35yrs.

father 60yrs

son 35yrs

Grandson 5yrs

8 :: Next number in the series 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8?
1/16

The next number is 1/16.
Becoz The diff b'ween 1/2 and 1/4 is "+2"

and next 1/4 and 1/8 is "+4"

means 1 1/2 (+2) 1/4 (+4) 1/8 (+8) 1/16

9 :: A clock is late by 1 minute 27 seconds in a month. Then how much will it be late in 1 day?
2.9 seconds

1min=60sec, so 1min 27 secs is=60+27=87
then 1 month=30days

now, 30days=87secs late
1day = ? x

x = (87*1)/30=2.9 secs

Ans: 2.9 secs per day it will be late.

10 :: Y catches 5 times more fishes than X. If total number of fishes caught by X and Y is 42, then number of fishes caught by X?

r+p=42

then p=7,r=35
