# Mixed Quantitative Aptitude Questions Set 241

1. A bag contains (x + 1), green balls and (x + 4) yellow balls. If one ball is drawn at random from the bag, the probability of getting a green ball is 3/7. Find the total number of balls in the bag ?
34
23
28
42
21
Option E
Probability = 3/7
x + 1/x + 1 + x + 4 = 3/7
x + 1/2x + 5 = 3/7
x = 8
total balls in the bag = 9 + 12 = 21 balls

2. A alone can do a work in 20 days and efficiency of A is 7 1/7% more than B. If efficiency of C is 20% less than A, then find in how many days B and C together can complete the same work ?
100/9 days
15 days
18 days
200/3 days
30 days
Option A
Fraction value 7 1/7% = 1/14
efficiency of B = 14
efficiency of A = 15
total work = 15 * 20 = 300
efficiency of C = 15 * 4/5 = 12
time = 300/15 + 12 = 100/9 days

3. The ratio of milk and water in a mixture is 11 : 4. When 30 liters of mixture is taken out and 18 liters of milk is added in the remaining mixture, the ratio of milk to water is 5 : 1, find the initial quantity of milk.
44 liters
65 liters
40 liters
50 liters
62 liters
Option A
Let quantity of milk = 11x
and water = 4x
(11x – 30 * 11/15 + 18)/4x – 30 * 4/15 = 5/1
11x – 4/4x – 8 = 5/1
11x – 4 = 20x – 40
x = 4
initial quantity of milk = 11 * 4 = 44 liters

4. An amount is divided among A, B and C, amount of B is average of amount A and C and when amount of B is reduced by 20% of that of A, it becomes equal to that of C. Find amount of C is what percent of total amount ?
20%
30%
40%
15%
25%
Option E
Let amount of A and C is rs.x and rs.y respectively.
amount of B = x + y/2
x + y/2 – x/5 = y
3x = 5y
x/y = 5/3
amount of A = rs.5a
amount of B = rs.4a
amount of C = rs.3a
% = 3a/12a * 100 = 25%

5. Train A running at speed of 108 km/hr crosses a platform having twice the length of train in 24 sec. Train B whose length is 420m crosses same platform in 36 sec, then find the speed of train B ?
108 km/hr
45 k/hr
76 km/hr
90 km/hr
72 km/hr
Option D
Let length of train A = x
length of platform = 2x
x + 2x/24 = 108 * 5/18
x = 240m
let speed of train B is y km/hr
420 + 2 * 240/36 = y * 5/18
y = 90 km/hr
