1) Find the Next Number 2,6,12,20?

A. 24
B. 29
C. 42
D. 30
E. None of these

Solution: 30

Explanation: 2, 6, 12, 20 1 x 2, 2 x 3, 3 x 4, 4 x 5, (5 x 6) Answer is 30. Product of two consecutive natural numbers

2) The marked price of a radio is 30% more than its cost price. If a discount of 10% is given on the marked price, find the gain percent.

A. 20%
B. 17%
C. 19%
D. 21%
E. None of the above

Solution: B

Explanation:
Given Let Cost Price = 100 Rs
Marked price = 30 % more than Cost Price
= 30 % of C.P + C.P
= ( ( 30 / 100 ) x 100 ) + 100
= 30 + 100
= 130 Rs
Given Discount = 10 % of marked price
= ( 10 / 100 ) x 130
= 13 Rs
Selling Price = Marked Price - Discount
= 130 - 13

3) There are two sections in a question paper each contains five questions. A student has to answer 6 questions. The maximum number of questions that can be answered from any section is 4. How many ways he can attempt the paper?

a) 50
b) 100
c) 120
d) 200

Solution: 200

Explanation: Possible ways in which he can attempt 6 questions are
5C4*5C2 = 50
5C3*5C3 = 100
5C2*5C4 = 50
50+100+50 = 200

4) The HCF of two numbers is 24. The number which can be their LCM is

A. 84
B. 128
C. 120
D. 274

Solution: D

Explanation: Let the two numbers be x and y , HCF = 24
LCM = 1344
HCF × LCM = x×y
24×1344 = xy
xy = 32256
(x-y) = 80
x = 80+y
(80+y)×y = 32256
y^2 +80y -32256 = 0
y^2 +224y -144y -32256 = 0
y(y+224) -144(y+224) =0
y = 114 & -224
x = 80+114
x = 194
x+y = 194+80 = 274

6) A person receives a sum of Rs. 2100 as interest for investing some amount at 10% p.a compounding annually for 2 years. Find the amount invested at the beginning?

A. 9000
B. 10000
C. 9500
D. 10500

Solution: B

Explanation: Given Compound Interest = Rs.2100
Rate of Interest ( r ) = 10 % p.a
No.of years ( n ) = 2
To find , amount received at the beginning => principal
Compound Interest = P [ 1 + ( r / 100 )n- 1 ]
=> 2100 = P[ 1 + ( 10 / 100 )2- 1 ]
=> 2100 = P[ 1 + ( 1 / 10 )2- 1 ]
=> 2100 = P[ ( 11 / 10 )2- 1 ]
=> 2100 = P[ ( 121 / 100 ) - 1 ]
=> 2100 = P[ 21 / 100 ]
=> 2100 x ( 100 / 21 ) = P
Principal = Rs. 10000
Amount invested at the beginning = Rs. 10000

7) What is the value of c , If 8 is 4% of a, and 4 is 8% of b. c equals b/a

A. 12
B. 1/4
C. 0.155
D. None of these

Solution: B

Explanation:
Let be the 4% of a is 4a/100.
Since this equals 8, we have 4a/100=8.
Solving for a yields a=8×(100/4)=200.
Also, 8% of b equals 8b/100, and this equals 4.
Hence, we have (8/100)×b=4.
Solving for b yields b = 50.
Now, c=b/a=50/200=1/4.

8) P, Q and R can do a work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. How many days does it need to complete the work if P does the work and he is assisted by Q and R on every third day?

A. 10 days
B. 14 days
C. 15 days
D. 9 days

Solution: C

Amount of work P can do in 1 day = 1/20
Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/30
Amount of work R can do in 1 day = 1/60
P is working alone and every third day Q and R is helping him
Work completed in every three days = 2 × (1/20) + (1/20 + 1/30 + 1/60) = 1/5
So work completed in 15 days = 5 × 1/5 = 1
That is, the work will be done in 15 days

9) Manu, Manju and Maya can do a work in 90, 30 and 45 days respectively. If they work together, in how many days will they complete work?

A. 15
B. 10
C. 20
D. 25

Solution: A

Explanation: Manu, Manju and Maya together can do the work = 1/90 + 1/30 + 1/45 = 1+3+2 /90= 1/15 So, They will complete the work in 15 days.

## Aptitude-set 2

1. The cost price of an article is Rs. 480. If it is to be sold at a profit of 6.25 percent, what would its selling price be?

A. Rs. 510
B. Rs. 530
C. Rs. 503
D. Rs. 519
E. None of these

Explanation
The selling price of the article is, Selling price = Cost Price + Selling price * (Percent Profit/100)
Selling Price = 480 + (6.25/100)*480 = 510
Hence, the correct option is option A.

2. The profit earned after selling an article for Rs 996 is the same as the loss incurred after selling the article for Rs 894. What is the cost price of the article ?

A. Rs 935
B. Rs 905
C. Rs 945
D. Rs 975
E. None of these

Explanation Let the CP be the Cost Price and SP be Selling Price.
Profit = SP – CP = 996 – CP
Loss = CP -SP = CP – 894
Now as Profit = Loss
2*CP = 1890
CP =945
Hence, the cost price is 945.

3. The ages of Nishi and Vinnee are in the ratio of 6:5 After 9 years the ratio of their ages will be 9:8 What is the difference in their ages?

a) 9 years
b) 7 years
c) 5 years
d) 3 years
e) None of these

Explanation Let the ages of Nishi and Vinnee be x and y.
Now, as per given conditions,
(x/y) = (6/5) i.e 5x=6y
after 9 years,
(x+9)/(y+9) = 9/8 i.e 8x-9y=9
After solving we get x = 18 and y = 15.
Differences in the ages = 18-15=3
Hence, option D is correct.

4. Find out the wrong number in the given series 9050, 5675, 3478, 2147, 1418, 1077, 950

a) 3478
b) 1418
c) 5673
d) 2147
e)1077

Explanation
9070 – 15^3 = 5675 , 5675 – 13^3 = 3478 , 3478 – 11^3 = 2147 , 2147 – 9^3 = 1418 , 1418 – 7^3 = 1075 ≠ 1077 , 1075 – 5^3 = 950

5. Profit earned by the organisation is distributed among officers and clerks in the ratio of 5:3 If the number of officers is 45 and the number of clerks is 80 and the amount received by each officer is rs 25,000 what was the total amount of profit earned?

A. Rs. 22 lakh
B. Rs. 18.25 lakh
C. Rs. 18 lakh
D. Rs. 23.25 lakh
E. None of these

Explanation The total amount distributed among officers = 45*25000= 11,25,000
If the total amount is x, then this amount is (5/8)x=11,25,000
Hence, x=18,00,000
