# Quantitative Aptitude: Data Sufficiency Set 3

Directions (1-5): In each of the following questions, a question is followed by two statements numbered I and II. Read both the statements and answer accordingly.

1. A and B are two numbers. What is the ratio of A/B
Statement I: Their average is 5/2 times B
Statement II
: Their sum is 6

A) If the data in statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.
B) If the data in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.
C) If the data either in statement I alone or statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
D) If the data given in both I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
E) If the data in both the statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Option A
Explanation
:
From I : (A+B)/2 = 5B/2 => (A+B)/B = 5 =>A/B=4
2. Average age of employees working in Bank is 30 years. Next year, 10 workers will retire. What will be the average age next year?
Statement I: There are 90 employees in bank
Statement II
: Retirement age is 60 year

A) If the data in statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.
B) If the data in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

D) If the data given in both I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
E) If the data in both the statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Option E
Explanation
:
Total age now = 90*30 =2700 (Using I)
Total age of outgoing people next year =60*10=600 (Using II)
New total age of remaining 80 people next year = 2700 -600 +80 =2180
Average = 2180/80

E) If the data in both the statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Option B
Explanation
:
Using II : (x+6)=3x
find x, find all the 7 terms and hence average.

Thank u

8)
Let total students =100x
from I : Mechanical = 20x
From II : remaining students afte mech = 80x = comp +elex
ratio=5:3
=> C=50x ; E=20x
From III : E-M=100
=>30x-20x=100 =>10x=100
=> total student = 1000

1. ^^^Jaga^^^....

Thank u sir
