Question 1 of 15
1. Question
1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeDistance between point P and Q is 480 km. A train starts from point P at 6:00 AM with 60 km/hr towards Q. Another train starts from point Q towards P at 7:00 AM with 80 km/kr. At what time the trains will meet?
Correct
Explanation:
When 2^{nd} train starts i.e. at 7 AM (1 hr after 6 AM), distance covered by first train is 60 km (i.e. in 1 hr).
Now 2^{nd} train also starts and distance between them is now (48060) = 420 km
Both coming in opposite direction, so relative speed = (60+80) = 140 km/hr
So time = 7:00 AM + (420/140) = 7:00 AM +3 hrs = 10:00 AMIncorrect
Explanation:
When 2^{nd} train starts i.e. at 7 AM (1 hr after 6 AM), distance covered by first train is 60 km (i.e. in 1 hr).
Now 2^{nd} train also starts and distance between them is now (48060) = 420 km
Both coming in opposite direction, so relative speed = (60+80) = 140 km/hr
So time = 7:00 AM + (420/140) = 7:00 AM +3 hrs = 10:00 AM 
Question 2 of 15
2. Question
1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeA and B started a business by investing Rs 5000 and Rs 6000 respectively. After 4 months C came with investment of Rs 7000 and B withdrew his whole amount. Now after another 4 months, B reinvested the money as before and A withdrew half of his money. If at the end of year the total profit is Rs 22,000, what is the difference between the share of profit that C gets as compared to his investment?
Correct
Explanation:
A invested 5000 for 8 months and then 2500 for 4 months. B invested 6000 for initial 4 months and then for last 4 months i.e. for 8 months. C invested 7000 for (124)= 8 months.
So A : B : C is
5000*8 + 2500*4 : 6000*8 : 7000*8
50*8 + 25*4 : 60*8 : 70*8
50*2 + 25 : 60*2 : 70*2
10*2 + 5 : 12*2 : 14*2
25 : 24 : 28
So C got = [28/(25+24+28)] * 22,000 = 8000
So xtra money C got is 80007000Incorrect
Explanation:
A invested 5000 for 8 months and then 2500 for 4 months. B invested 6000 for initial 4 months and then for last 4 months i.e. for 8 months. C invested 7000 for (124)= 8 months.
So A : B : C is
5000*8 + 2500*4 : 6000*8 : 7000*8
50*8 + 25*4 : 60*8 : 70*8
50*2 + 25 : 60*2 : 70*2
10*2 + 5 : 12*2 : 14*2
25 : 24 : 28
So C got = [28/(25+24+28)] * 22,000 = 8000
So xtra money C got is 80007000 
Question 3 of 15
3. Question
1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeFrom a bag containing 7 white and 5 black balls, 2 balls are drawn one by one without replacement. Find the probability that either both balls are white in color or both are different colored?
Correct
Explanation:
Case 1: When both white in color: prob. = 7/12 * 6/11 = 7/22 or 7C2/12C2 = 7/22
Case 2: When both different:
7C1 * 5C1/12C2 = 35/66
Now add both cases: prob. = 7/22 + 35/66 = 56/66 = 28/33Incorrect
Explanation:
Case 1: When both white in color: prob. = 7/12 * 6/11 = 7/22 or 7C2/12C2 = 7/22
Case 2: When both different:
7C1 * 5C1/12C2 = 35/66
Now add both cases: prob. = 7/22 + 35/66 = 56/66 = 28/33 
Question 4 of 15
4. Question
1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeTwo varieties of rice are mixed in the ratio 5 : 3. The mixture is sold at a profit of 10% for Rs 24.53 per kg. If the value of 1st variety of rice is Rs 20.50 per kg, how much is the cost of the 2nd variety of rice (per kg)?
Correct
Explanation:
SP = 24.53, profit = 10%, so CP = (100/110)*24.53 = Rs 22.30
1st rice………………2nd rice
20.50……………………..x
…………….22.30
x22.30…………………..1.80
So (x – 22.30)/ 1.80 = 5/3
Solve, x = 25.30Incorrect
Explanation:
SP = 24.53, profit = 10%, so CP = (100/110)*24.53 = Rs 22.30
1st rice………………2nd rice
20.50……………………..x
…………….22.30
x22.30…………………..1.80
So (x – 22.30)/ 1.80 = 5/3
Solve, x = 25.30 
Question 5 of 15
5. Question
1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeAn article is sold at a discount of 25% making a profit of 20%. What would have been the profit percent if the article was sold without discount?
Correct
Explanation:
Let MP = Rs 100
at 25% discount gives: SP = Rs 75, so Discount = 25
Now profit = 20%
so CP = (100/120) * 75 = 62.5
No discount given means SP = MP = 100
So Profit% when no discount = [10062.5/62.5]*100Incorrect
Explanation:
Let MP = Rs 100
at 25% discount gives: SP = Rs 75, so Discount = 25
Now profit = 20%
so CP = (100/120) * 75 = 62.5
No discount given means SP = MP = 100
So Profit% when no discount = [10062.5/62.5]*100 
Question 6 of 15
6. Question
1 pointsCategory: Quantitative AptitudeDirections (610): Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question:
What is the two digit number?
I. The number obtained by interchanging the digits of original number is more than the original number by 36.
II. The difference between the digits is 4 and there addition gives 8.Correct
Explanation:
Let number if 10x+y
From I: (10y+x) = (10x+y) + 36
From II: x+y = 8 and xy = 4 or yx = 4
If x+y = 8 and xy = 4 gives x=6 and y=2
If x+y = 8 and yx = 4 gives x=2 and y=6
Since we don’t know that difference between which digits is 4, cant be determined.Incorrect

Explanation:
From I: A+B twice work in 12 days, so 1 work in 6 days
From II: B half work in 5 days, so 1 work in 10 days
So from both, 1/A = 1/6 – 1/10Incorrect
Explanation:
From I: A+B twice work in 12 days, so 1 work in 6 days
From II: B half work in 5 days, so 1 work in 10 days
So from both, 1/A = 1/6 – 1/10
