# Mixed Quantitative Aptitude Questions Set 239

1. A train , 240 m long crosses a man, walking along the line in opposite direction at the rate of 3 km/hr in 10 seconds. What is the speed of train ?
80 km/hr
75 km/hr
83.4 km/hr
92.8 km/hr
68 km/hr
Option C
Let speed of train = x m/hr
240/(3 + x) 5/18 = 10
x = 83.4 km/hr

2. A boat takes a total of 24 hours to over 90 km in downstream and 90 km in upstream. If the ratio of speed of boat in sill water and speed of stream is 4 : 1, then find how much time is required to cover 120 km distance in down stream speed ?
8 hours
14 hours
20 hours
15 hours
12 hours
Option E
Let speed of boat in still water = 4x
speed of stream = x
downstream speed = 4x + x = 5x
upstream speed = 4x – x = 3x
90/5x + 90/3x = 24
x = 2
downstream speed = 5 * 2 = 10 km/hr
time = 120/10 = 12 hours

3. A equilateral tringle and a square have the same area. If the perimeter of the square is 88cm, then find what is area of the equilateral tringle ?
196 cm^2
256 cm^2
144 cm^2
484 m^2
125 cm^2
Option D
Perimeter of square = 88cm
side of square = 88/4 = 22cm
area of square = 22 * 22 = 484 cm^2
area of tringle = 484 cm^2

4. Pipe A can fill a tank in 15 hours and pipe B can fill the same tank in 60 hours, pipe C can empty in 10 hours. Pipe A and B are kept opened for 10 hours in the beginning and then pipe C is also opened, what is the time taken to empty the tank ?
60 hours
40 hours
30 hours
25 hours
50 hours
Option E
Capacity of the tank = 15, 60, 10 = 60 units
efficiency of pipe A = 60/15 = 4 units
efficiency of pipe B = 60/60 = 1
efficiency of pipe C = 60/10 = 6 units
tank filled in 1st 10 hours = (4 + 1) * 10 = 50 units
now, when all the pipe work together, 1 unit of water will out in every minute from tank.
50 units of water will be in 50 hours.

5. The ratio of age of A and B, 6 years ago was 3 : 4. Sum of the present age of B and C is 80 years. C is 12 years elder to A. Find the difference of age of B and C after 4 years ?
5 years
6 years
8 years
4 years
12 years
Option D
6 years ago age of A = 3x
age of B = 4x
present age of A = 3x + 6
present age of B = 4x + 6
present age of C = 3x + 6 + 12 = 3x + 18
4x + 6 + 3x + 18 = 80
7x = 56
x = 8
age of B after 4 years = 4x + 6 + 4 = 42 years
age of C after 4 years = 3x + 18 + 4 = 46 years
difference = 46 – 42 = 4 years
