There is a jar containing toffees that can be either orange flavored or strawberry flavored. You know the fact that there is at least one orange flavored toffee in that jar. You close your eyes and pick two toffees on random.
You are provided with the fact that at least one of them will be strawberry flavored. Can you now find out how many strawberry toffees are there in that jar?
There are 99 strawberry toffees in that jar.
We know for sure that there is at least one orange toffee in that jar. Now the question tells us that on picking two random toffees, one must be strawberry. This can only be possible if all the other 99 toffees are strawberry flavored.

In a particular game, there can be eight players at one time on the pitch and they last for seventy minutes. In the total duration, six players substitute with each player. All the players are then for the same time on the pitch including the substitutes. Can you calculate the time each player was on the pitch?
The total number of players = 8 + 6 = 14
According to the question, only eight players can be present on the field. Thus calculating the total time:
70 * 8 = 560
We know that there are 14 players in total so dividing the total time by 14 will give us the time spent by each player.
560/14 = 40 minutes
There are three cars in a racing track. The track is made forming a perfect circle and is quite wide so that at one time, multiple cars can pass through it. The car which is leading is driving at 55 MPH and the slowest car is driving at 45 MPH. The car that is in middle of these two is driving in between the two speeds. For the time being you can say that the distance between the fastest car and the middle car is x miles and it is same between the middle car and the slowest car. Also, x is not equal to 0 or 1.
The car keeps running till the leading car catches up with the slowest car and then every car stops. Given the case, do you think that at any point, the distance between any two pairs will again become x miles?
In the question, the distance of x miles is given at a particular moment. The middle car is running at that time at 50 MPH. The distance will keep increasing with time as three are running at different speeds. It will increase by x miles every hour till a certain point of time and then it will start decreasing till the fastest car meets the slowest again.
As per question, all the cars stop then. Thus, the distance will never be x miles again.
A petri dish kept in a lab has a colony of healthy bacteria. Every bacterium divides itself into two in exactly two minutes. Now the colony started with a single cell at 2 pm. If the petri dish was exactly half full of bacteria at 3 pm, when will the dish become full of bacteria?
Since every bacterium divides into two in two minutes and we know the fact that the dish was half filled with bacteria at 3 pm, after exactly 2 minutes, all will divide into two and will fill the petri dish. Thus, the petri dish will become full at 3:02 pm.
