# Quantitative Aptitude Questions for IBPS Exam Set – 29

Hello Aspirants. Welcome to Online Quantitative Aptitude section in AffairsCloud.com. Here we are creating question sample From all topics , which are Important for upcoming IBPS and RRB exams. We have included Some questions that are repeatedly asked in exams.

1. Ages of A and B are in the ratio 1 : 2 and that of B and C are in the ratio of 3 : 4. Also 5 years ago the average of their ages was 12 years. Then find C’s age?
A. 20
B. 24
C. 26
D. 30
B. 24
Explanation:
A/B = 1/2, B/C = 3/4
A : B : C = 3 : 6 : 8
Their total ages 3x+6x+8x = 17x
5 yrs ago, sum of their ages = 17x –(5+5+5) = 17x – 15
So (17x-15)/3 = 12
This gives x =3
So C’s age = 8x = 24 yrs

2. There are 3 red balls, 4 blue balls and 5 white balls. 2 balls are chosen randomly. Find probability that 1 is red and the other is white.

7C1*5C1/12C2

5. A man goes from A to B at 14 km/hr and comes back from B to A at 15 km/hr. He covers both the journeys in 5 hrs 48 min. Find the distance from A to B?
A. 38 km
B. 40 km
C. 42 km
D. 44 km
C. 42 km
Explanation:
Distance = (S1*S2)/[(S1+S2)t,
t = 5 hrs 48 min = 5 48/60 = 5 4/5 = 29/5 hrs
Distance A to B = (14*15)/[(14+15)*29/5] = 42 km

6. 40 men cut 20 tress in 6 days working 6 hours a day. How many trees will be cut by 30 men in 12 days working 4 hours a day?
A. 18
B. 20
C. 24
D. 30
B. 20
Explanation:
Let x trees
40*6*6*x = 30*12*4*20

7. A does a work in 15 days, and B does the same work in 16 days. A and B started the work, and after 6 days B left. A completed the remaining work. Find the total number of days after which the work will be completed?
A. 7 days
B. 8 ¾ days
C. 9 days
D. 9 3/8 days
D. 9 3/8 days
Explanation:
Let A completed remaining work in ‘x’ days. So,
(1/15 + 1/16) * 6 + 1/15 * x = 1
x = 3 3/8
Total days = 6 + 3 3/8 = 9 3/8

8. A and B are 250 km apart. A train started from A at 9 AM at 60 km/hr. Another train started from B in opposite direction to A at 9:40 AM at 40 km/kr. At what time will they meet?
A. 11:40 AM
B. 12:05 PM
C. 11:46 AM
D. 12:46 PM
C. 11:46 AM
Explanation:
9:40 – 9 = 40 minutes
After 40 minutes the train started from A with speed 60 km/hr will be 40/60 * 60 = 40 km apart from A.
Now distance left is 250-40 = 210
After 9:40 AM, the two train will meet after = 210/(60+40) = 21/10 hrs or 21/10 * 60 = 126 minutes = 2 hrs 6 min
9:40 + 2 hrs 6 min = 11:46 AM

9. A and B are 250 km apart. A train started from A at 9 AM at 60 km/hr. Another train started from B in opposite direction to A at 9:40 AM at 40 km/kr. At what distance from A they will meet?
A. 126 km
B. 120 km
C. 130 km
D. 166 km
D. 166 km
Explanation:
From 8th ques, t = 21/10 hrs
Speed of first train is 60. After 40 km from A, the distance travelled by first train in 21/10 hrs = 21/10 * 60 = 126 km.
From A, they will meet at 40+126 = 166 km far

10. The radii of the bases of cylinder and a cone are in the ratio of 3 : 4 and their heights are in the ratio 2 : 3. Find the ratio of their volumes.
A. 8 : 9
B. 9 : 8
C. 7 : 8
D. 7 : 9
B. 9 : 8
Explanation:
Let radii of cylinder and cone be 3r and 4r, heights be 2h and 3h.
Vol of cylinder = πr2h
Vol of cone = 1/3 πr2h
Divide the two and put the values of radii and heights
