Details of the exam are as under: Practice the questions so as to familiarize yourself with the pattern of questions to be asked in the exam.

Directions(1-5): What should come in place of question mark “?” in the following questions.

1. 3(6/17) / 2(7/34) – 1(9/25) = ?^2
1/8
2/7
3/5
4/7
2/5
Option E
3(6/17) / 2(7/34) – 1(9/25) = ?^2
=> 55/17 / 75/34 – 34/25 = ?^2
=> 55/17 * 34/17 – 34/25 = ?^2
=> 114/75 – 34/25 = ?^2
=> (114 – 102 )/75 = ?^2
=> ?^2 = 12/75
=> ? = 2/5

2. (216)^1.3 * (36)^1.8 / (6)^0.5 = (6)^?
3
9
5
7
6
Option D
(216)^1.3 * (36)^1.8 / (6)^0.5 = (6)^?
=> ? = 7

3. 23*2(45-15) + 168 / 4 /2 – (11)^2 = ?
1108
1250
1280
1155
1004
Option C
23*2(45-15) + 168 / 4 /2 – (11)^2 = ?
=> 23 * 2(30) – 100 = ?
=> 1380 – 100 = ?
=> ? = 1280

4. 48% of 4800 + 24% of 1260 = ?
2606.4
2000.5
2100.2
2300.5
3020.3
Option A
48% of 4800 + 24% of 1260 = ?
=> 48 * 48 + 24 * 12.6 = ?
=> ? = 2304 + 302.4
=> ? = 2606.4

5. [784.92+54.945×(85.971-54.101)]÷4.93=?
555
510
560
532
590
Option B
[784.92+54.945×(85.971-54.101)]÷4.93=?
=> [788 + 55 * 32]/5 = ?
=> 2548/5 = ?
=> ? = 509.6 = 510

6. Four years ago Shyam’s age was ¾ times that of Ram. Four years hence, Shyam’s age will be 5/6 times that of Ram. What is the present age of Shyam ?
9 years
20 years
14 years
16 years
32 years
Option D
Four years ago,
Shyam : Ram = 3 : 4
After four years,
[3x +8]/[4x+8] = 5/6
=> x = 4
Shyam’s present age = 3x + 4
= 3 × 4 + 4 = 16 years

7. Two cyclists start on a circular track from a given point but in opposite directions with speeds of 7 m/s and 8 m/s respectively. If the circumference of the circle is 300 m after what time will they meet at the starting point ?
30 sec.
20 sec.
40 sec.
10 sec.
50 sec.
Option B
According to the question,
Relative speed = (8 + 7) = 15 m/s
Distance = 300 m
Time taken to cover this distance = 300/15 = 20 s

8. Satish invests Rs. 35,500 in a scheme which earns him simple interest at the rate of 15 p.c.p.a. for two years. At the end of two years he reinvests the principal amount plus interest earned in another scheme which earns him compound Interest at the rate of 20 p.c.p.a. What will be the total interest earned by Satish over the principal amount at the end of 5 years ?
Rs. 52230.45
Rs. 44247.20
Rs. 324512.8
Rs.50025.5
Rs.45225.30
Option B
Simple interest = [35500 * 15 *2]/100 = Rs. 10650 Principal for another investment = 35500 + 10650 = Rs. 46150
C.I = Rs. 46150[(6/5)^3 – 1] = Rs. 46150 * 91/125 = Rs. 33597.20
Total interest earned = Rs (10650 + 33597.20)
= Rs. 44247.20

9. The total area of a circle and a rectangle is equal to 1166 sq.cm. The diameter of the circle is 28 cms. What is the sum of the circumference of the circle and the perimeter of the rectangle if the length of the rectangle is 25 cm ?
182 cm
220 cm
100 cm
150 cm
190 cm
Option A
Area of circle = pi*r*r
= 22/7 × 14 × 14
= 616 sq. cm.
Area of rectangle = 1166 – 616 = 550 sq.cm.
Breadth of rectangle = 550/25 = 22cm.
Circumference of circle
= pi × diameter = 22/7× 28 = 88 cm.
Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)
= 2 (25 + 22) = 94 cm.
Required sum = 88 + 94 = 182 cm.

10. 8 men can complete a piece of work in 4 days. 12 women can complete the same piece of work in 4 days whereas 8 children can complete the same piece of work in 8 days. 2 men, 8 children and 3 women work together for 2 days. If only women were to finish the remaining work in 2 days, how many total women would be required ?
15
24
18
12
20
Option D
As per given information, 8 × 4 men = 12 × 4 women
= 8 × 8 children
32 men = 48 women = 64 children
2 men = 3 women = 4 children
2 men + 8 children + 3 women = (3 + 6 + 3) women =12 women
12 women’s 2 day’s work = 1/2
Remaining work = 1/2
Required number of women = 12
