# Mixed Quantitative Aptitude Questions Set 226

1. A shopkeeper X sold an article for rs.850 at a profit of 25%. Another shopkeeper Y sold the another article and earned 30% more profit than the profit earned by X. If the selling price of article Y is three-fifth of selling price of article X, then find the profit percent of article Y ?
64 2/17%
76 8/17%
52 3/34%
52 3/8%
78%
Option B
SP of article X = 850
CP of article X = 850 * 100/125 = 680
profit = 170
profit of article Y = 170*130/100 = 221
SP of article Y = 850 * 3/5 = 510
CP = 510 – 221 = 289
profit percent = 221/289* 100 = 76 8/17%

2. Mixture A contains milk and water in the ratio of 3 : 2 respectively, while mixture B contains water and milk in the ratio of 4 : 3 respectively. If the quantity of water in mixture B is twice the quantity of water in mixture A, then find the quantity of milk in mixture A is what percent quantity of water in mixture B ?
68%
60%
82%
75%
56%
Option D
Quantity of milk and water in mixture A = 3x and 2x
according to questions,
quantity of water in mixture B = 2*2x = 4x
quantity of milk in mixture B = 4x/4 *3 = 3x
required percentage = 3x/4x*100 = 75%

3. 340 liters of mixture of milk and water is contained in a container having milk and water mixed in the ratio of 3 : 1 respectively. 76 liters of this mixture is taken out from the container and replaced with (x + 7) liters of milk so that the ratio of water to milk is 6 : 11. What is the value of ‘x’ ?
42
48
38
35
52
Option D
Quantity of milk in the container = 340 * 3/4 = 255
quantity of water in the container = 340*1/4 = 85
76 liters of mixture is taken out and (x + 7) liter of water is added.
(255 – 57) / 85 – 19 + (x + 7) = 11/6
198/(73 + x) = 11/6
11x = 385
x = 35

4. A can do a piece of work in 30days while B and C together can complete the work in 20 days and A and C together can complete the work in 24 days. If B is worked in two-fifth of his efficiency, then in how many days A and B together complete half of the work ?
8 days
6 days
8 1/3 days
5 days
10 days
Option E
LCM of 30 , 20 and 24 = 120
efficiency of A = 120/30 = 4
efficiency of B and C = 120/20 = 6
efficiency of A and C together = 120/24 = 5
efficiency of C = 5- 4 = 1
efficiency of B 6- 1 = 5
two-fifth of efficiency B = 5 * 2/5 = 2
time required to complete half of the work = 60/2 + 4 = 10 days

5. Rohan and Sivan started a business together with initial investments of rs. 1500 and rs.1800 respectively. If after 2.5 years profit share of Rohan and Sivan are rs(x + 80) and (x + 120) respectively, then find the difference between profit of Rohan and Sivan ?
180
120
320
130
340
Option B
Profit sharing ratio of Rohan and Sivan = (1500 * 2.5) : (1800 * 2.5) = 5 : 6
x + 80/x + 120 = 5/6
6x + 480 = 5x + 600
x = 120
