# Quant Test for IBPS PO 2018 Prelim Exam Set – 21

Directions(1-5): Find the relation between I and II and choose a correct option.

1. I. 4x^2 – 25x + 36 = 0
II. 2x^2 – 19x + 44 = 0

I>=II
II>=I
II>I
I = II or relation cannot be established.
I>II
Option B
I. 4x^2 – 25x + 36 = 0
=> 4x^2 – 16x – 9x + 36 = 0
=> x = 9/4,4
II. 2x^2 – 19x + 44 = 0
=> 2x^2 – 8x – 11x + 44 = 0
=> x = 11/2,4
II >= I

2. I.3x + 5y = 32
II.8x – 4y = 16

I>II
I = II or relation cannot be established.
II>I
I>=II
II>=I
Option B
I = II = 4

3. I.x^2 – 27x + 180 = 0
II.y^2 – 20y + 96 = 0

I>II
I = II or relation cannot be established.
II>=I
II>I
I>=II
Option E
I.x^2 – 27x + 180 = 0
=> x^2 – 15x – 12x + 180 = 0
=> x = 15, 12
II.y^2 – 20y + 96 = 0
=> y^2 – 12y -8y + 96 = 0
=> y = 12, 8
I >= II

4. I.3x^2 – 17x + 10 = 0
II.y^2 – 11y + 30 = 0

I = II or relation cannot be established.
II>I
I>=II
I>II
II>=I
Option E
I.3x^2 – 17x + 10 = 0
=> 3x^2 – 2x – 15x + 10 = 0
=> x = 2/3,5
II.y^2 – 11y + 30 = 0
=> y^2 – 6y – 5y + 30 = 0
=> y = 6,5
II >= I

5. I.x^2 –x – 6 = 0
II.y^2 + 7y + 12 = 0

I>=II
II>=I
I>II
II>I
I = II or relation cannot be established.
Option C
I.x^2 –x – 6 = 0
=> x^2 – 3x + 2x – 6 = 0
=> x = 3, -2
II.y^2 + 7y + 12 = 0
=> y^2 +3y + 4y + 12 = 0
=> y = – 3 , – 4
I>II

6. A hemispherical bowl of internal diameter 54 cm contains a liquid. The liquid is to be filled in cylindrical bottles of radius 3 cm and height 9 cm. How many bottles are required to empty the bowl?
100 bottles
162 bottles
150 bottles
174 bottles
181 bottles
Option B
Volume of hemi-sphere = 2/3*pi*(27)^3 cm^3
Volume of cylindrical bottle = pi*(3)^2*9 cm^3
Required No. of bottles = Volume of hemi-sphere/ Volume of cylindrical bottle
= 162 bottles

7. According to a new plan rolled out by HISP Bank, the rate of simple interest on a sum of money is 8% p.a. for the first two years, 10% p.a. for the next three years and 6% p.a. for the period beyond the first five years. Simple interest accrued on a sum for a period of eight years is Rs. 12,800. Find the sum.
Rs. 30000
Rs. 25000
Rs. 40000
Rs. 50000
Rs. 20000
Option E
Let the sum be Rs. ‘x’.
[x*8*2]/100 + [x*10*3]/100 + [x*6*3]/100 =12800
=> 64x/100 = 12800
=> x = Rs. 20000

8. A and B are partners in a business. They invest in the ratio 5 : 6, at the end of 8 months A withdraws. If they receive profits in the ratio of 5 : 9, find how long B’s investment was used?
18
12
20
8
14
Option B
5x : 6x Let B investment was used for y months
8 * 5x : 6x * y = 5 : 9
=> 40x/60xy = 5/9
Y = 12

9. Two trains, A and B, start from stations X and Y towards each other, they take 4 hours 48 minutes and 3 hours 20 minutes to reach Y and X respectively after they meet if train A is moving at 45 km/hr., then find the speed of the train B.
60 km/hr.
58 km/hr.
52 km/hr.
54 km/hr.
44 km/hr.
Option D
S2/S1 = (24/5/10/3)^1/2
=> S2 = 45*6/5 = 54 km/hr.

10. A college has 10 basketball players. A 5-member team and a captain will be selected out of these 10 players. How many different selections can be made?
1100

Option C
A team of 6 members has to be selected from the 10 players. This can be done in 10C6 or 210 ways.
Now, the captain can be selected from these 6 players in 6 ways.
Therefore, total ways the selection can be made is 210×6 = 1260
