Practice the questions so as to familiarize yourself with the pattern of questions to be asked in the exam.Â

Directions(1-5): What should come at the place of question mark (?) in the following question?

1. (0.76 * 0.76 * 0.76 â€“ 0.008)/(0.76 * 0.76 + 0.76 * 0.2 + 0.04) = ?
0.33
0.45
0.56
0.81
0.49
Option C
(0.76 * 0.76 * 0.76 â€“ 0.008)/(0.76 * 0.76 + 0.76 * 0.2 + 0.04) = ?
= (0.438 -0.008)/(0.5776 + 0.152 + 0.04)
= (0.43)/0.7696
= 0.56

2. 832/24 * 84/26 /252/72 = ?
27
40
35
22
32
Option E
832/24 * 84/26 /252/72 = ? = 32

3. (4096)^2/3/ (65536)^3/4 * (16)^? = 4^4
3
7
5

2
Option A
(4096)^2/3/ (65536)^3/4 * (16)^? = 4^4
=> (16)^3*(2/3) / (16)^4*(3/4) * (16)^? = 16^2
=> (16)^(2-3) * (16)^? = 16^2
=> ? = 3

4. 2(17/23) + 1(15/46) â€“ 3(27/92) = ? â€“ 6(13/23)
3(33/92)
2(44/90)
5(11/94)
7(31/92)
1(33/90)
Option D
2(17/23) + 1(15/46) â€“ 3(27/92) = ? â€“ 6(13/23)
=> (2+1-3+6)(68+30-27+52)/92 = ?
=> 6(123/92) = ?
=> ? = 7(31/92)

5. (?)^2 + (65)^2 = (160)^2 â€“ (90)^2 â€“ 7191
80
78
66
70
85
Option B
(?)^2 + (65)^2 = (160)^2 â€“ (90)^2 â€“ 7191
=> (?)^2 = (160)^2 â€“ (90)^2 â€“ 7191 â€“ (65)^2
=> (?)^2 = 25600 â€“ 8100 â€“ 7191 â€“ 4225
=> ? = 78

6. Directions(6-10): Study the following table carefully and answers the question.

7. How many approximate Bank PO books were given to each distributor by publisher D, if all distributor distributes only bank PO books.
250
300
420
399
345
Option D
No. of Bank PO books distributed by publisher D
= 34236 Ã— 63% = 21568.68 âˆ¼ 21569 * 7/18 = 8388
No. of books given to each distributor by publisher D = 8388/21
= 399

8. The number of books distributed by F is how much percent more or less than the number of books distributed by C?
14.44%
18.49%
11.25%
20.22%
19.51%
Option B
F = 21590 Ã— 76% = 16408
C = 25480 Ã— 79% = 20,129
Required answer = (20129-16408)/20129 x 100 = 18.49%

9. If the number of books distributed by publishers B, D & E are increased by 25% & the number of books distributed by publishers A, C & F are decreased by 30%. What will be the new average of books distributed by all the publishers?
17981
15480
18812
16230
11745
Option A
B = 13200 Ã— 84% = 11088
D = 34236 Ã— 63% = 21569
E = 27300 Ã— 82% = 22386
Books distributed by B, D and E = (11088 + 21569 + 22386 ) Ã— 125% = 68804
A = 21440 Ã— 90% = 19296
C = 25480 Ã— 79% = 20129
F = 21590 Ã— 76% = 16408
Books distributed by A, C and F = ( 19296 + 20129 + 16408 ) Ã— 70% = 39083
New average = (68804 + 39083)/6 = 17981

10. If the number of distributors by publisher E was increased by 40% and if each publisher gets equal number of books, then the number of books each publisher got before increase in the number of distributor is how much percent more than the number of books each publisher got after increase in number of distributors?
40%
20%
60%
50%
30%
Option A
No. of distributor = 35+40% of 35 = 35 + 14 = 49
No. of books each publisher got after 40% increase in number of distributors = = 27300/49 = 557
No. of books each publisher got before increase = 27300/35 = 780
Therefore, required percent = (780-557)/557 x 100 = 40%

11. If 55.55% of books distributed are of SSC by Publisher A and the number of defected books of SSC by publisher A are 9.11% of total no. of books distributed by Publisher E. Then find the approximate average number of distributed books of SSC which are not defected by publisher A and the number of books which are not distributed by publisher E?
6797
4450
5750
6670
8250
Option A
Total number of SSC books = 21440 x 9/16 = 12060
No. of distributed books by publisher A = 21440 x 90% = 19296
No. of books of SSC distributed by publisher A = 19296 x 55.55 % = 10719
No. of defected books of SSC by publisher A = 27300 x 82% x 9.11% = 2039
No. of distributed SSC books which are not defected by publisher A = 10719 â€“ 2039 = 8680
No. of books which are not distributed by publisher E = 27300 Ã— 18% = 4914
Average = (8690 + 4914)/2 = 6797
