# Mixed Quantitative Aptitude Questions Set 217

1. Train A crosses a 400m long bridge and a pole in 32 second and 12 seconds respectively. If length of train B is 40m more then the length of train A and speed of train B is 32m/sec. Then how much time required if train A and B is running in opposite direction ?
14 sec
4 sec
18 sec
10 sec
19 sec
Option D
Let length of train A = x
x+400/32 = x/12
32x = 12x + 4800
20x = 4800
x = 240
speed of train A = 240/12 = 20m/sec
length of train B = 240 + 40 = 280m
speed of train B = 32m/sec
Time = 240 + 280/32 + 20 = 520/52 = 10sec

2. The ratio of number of male and female in a group is 8 : 5. If the percentage of male and female increased by 20% and 25% respectively. Then find the new ratio of male and female, if total number of male and female is 260 initially.
8 : 3
5 : 4
7 : 8
5 : 3
4 : 11
Option D
Total number of male and female = 260
number of male = 260 * 8/13 = 160
number of female = 260 * 5/13 = 100
increased male = 160 * 5/4= 200
increased female = 100 * 6/5 = 120
ratio = 200 : 120 = 5 : 3

3. The ratio of age of A and B before 5 years is 2 : 3 and D is 12 years elder than B. The present age of C is one fourth of the present age of D. If the age of C after 6 years is 14 years, then find the present age of B.
28 years
20 years
34 years
38 years
42 years
Option B
Let the age of A and B before 5 years = 2x and 3x
present age of A = 2x + 5
present age of B = 3x + 5
present age of D = 3x + 5 + 12 = 3x + 17
present age of C = 3x + 17/4
present age of C = 14 – 6 = 8 years
3x + 17/4 = 8
3x + 17 = 32
3x = 32 – 17
3x = 15
x = 5
present age of B = 3x + 5 = 20 years.

4. A bag contain 4 red pens, 6 green pens and 8 blue pens. If 2 pens are taken at randomly, then find the probability that there are no blue pens.
8/17
5/17
8/15
2/8
4
Option B
required = 10C2 = 10 * 9/2 * 1 = 45
total = 18C2 = 18 * 17 / 2*1 = 153
probability = 45/153 = 5/17

5. Shiva invested rs.4200 in a scheme at 18% per annum for 3 years at simple interest and he also invested same amount in another scheme at 20% per annum for 3 years. What is the difference between simple interest and compound interest which he earned from both the scheme ?
880
789.6
435.6
940
840
Option B
simple interest = 4200*18/100*3 = 2268
by applying successive method,
20 + 20 + 400/100 = 44%
44 + 20 + 880/100 = 72.8
compound interest = 4200 * 72.8/100 = 3057.6
Difference = 3057.6 – 2268 = 789.6
