Q.

Common Information Question: 1/4

Of the visitors who entered the museum or exited the museum at 1:00 p.m., the number of visitors who stayed in the museum for not more than two hours is at most:

 A.

240

 B.

360

 C.

480

 D.

540

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

Out of those who entered at 11:00 a.m., 150 would have exited at 12:00 p.m.

Hence the remaining 60 persons would have exited at 1 p.m. and out of 240 persons who entered at 12:00 p.m., 120 persons would have exited at 1:00 p.m.

And out of 360 persons who entered at 1:00 p.m.. all of them would have exited at 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. together.

⇒ Total number, $= 180 + 360$

$= \textbf{540}$

@1pm, 360 entered, 180 exited.

now doing further calculations accordingly, people who stayed max of 2hrs is 510.. but the options doesnt have it.

Bcoz out of people who entered @ 1pm, 30 people exit @ 4pm only..

so they had stayed more than 2hours.

Can someone explain??
