Quantitative Aptitude: Data Interpretation Set 34 (SBI PO Mains Memory Based)

Below are 2 sets of Data Interpretation Questions – Â SBI PO Mains 2017 Memory Based DIÂ

Directions (1 – 5): Study the following table carefully and answer the questions that follow:

The table shows the discount % given by stores on different items. The Market Price of any article on all stores is same. Some values are missing. Answer the questions on the basis of given table and information in question.

1. If the average SP of article II by in all the stores is Rs 2568, Find the MP of article II.
A) Rs 3200
B) Rs 4500
C) Rs 3600
D) Rs 4300
E) Rs 4000
Option C
Solution:

SP by store A = (100-28)/100 * MP = 72% of MP, by B = 82% of MP, by C = 60% of MP
So (72+82+60)/3 * MP/100 = 2568
Solve, MP = Rs 3600
2. Difference between SP of article I by stores A and B is Rs 486, Find the SP of same article by store C.
A) Rs 3506
B) Rs 4005
C) Rs 4808
D) Rs 4104
E) Rs 3205
Option D
Solution:

Difference in SP = 93% of MP â€“ 84% of MP
So 9% of MP = 486
Solve, MP = 5400
So SP by store C = 76% of 5400 = Rs 4104
3. Average SP of article III by stores A and B is Rs 3608, by stores B and C is Rs 3300. Find the SP of article III by store C.
A) Rs 2984
B) Rs 3122
C) Rs 3080
D) Rs 2764
E) Rs 3452
Option C
Solution:

Let x% discount by store B
So [84 + (100-x)]/2*100 * MP = 3608
And [70 + (100-x)]/2*100 * MP = 3300
Put value of (100-x) from 1 equation to another and solve for MP
MP = Rs 4400
So SP by store C = 70/100 * 4400 = Rs 3080
4. Store A earned 10% profit by selling product V. If CP of articles at all articles is same, find the ratio of profits by B and C in selling V.
A) 6 : 15
B) 9 : 16
C) 8 : 15
D) 6 : 13
E) 9 : 14
Option E
Solution:

MP = x
SP by A = 88% of x
So CP by A = 100/110 * 88/100 *x = 4x/5
Now CP is same
SP by B = 89x/100, so profit of B = 89x/100 â€“ 4x/5 = 9x/100
SP by C = 94x/100, so profit of B = 94x/100 â€“ 4x/5 = 14x/100
So required ratio = 9 : 14
5. Ratio of discounts on article IV by stores A and B is 2/3. Difference in SP of article IV by stores A and C is Rs 432. If SP of article IV by store A is Rs 216 more than that by store B, find the SP of article IV by store C?
A) Rs 2138
B) Rs 2687
C) Rs 2736
D) Rs 2522
E) Rs 2544
Option C
Solution:

x/18 = 2/3
So discount by A = 12%
Now
88% of MP = 82% of MP + 216
Solve, MP = Rs 3600
Now:
let y% discount by store C
[88 â€“ (100-y)]/100 * MP = 432
MP = Rs 3600
Solve, y = 24%
So SP by C = 76% of 3600 = Rs 2736

Directions (6 – 10): Study the following pie-chart and table carefully and answer the questions that follow:
Some values are missing. Answer the questions on the basis of given table and information in question. Speed of stream is same for both upstream and downstream distance on respective days

1. Time taken to cover the upstream distance on Friday is same as time taken to cover the downstream distance on Thursday. Total speed of still water on Thursday and Friday is 10 km/hr. Find the ratio of speed of still water on Thursday and Friday.
A) 6 : 13
B) 4 : 11
C) 7 : 13
D) 4 : 15
E) 7 : 12
Option C
Solution:

Distances upstream:
Monday = 18/100 * 150 = 27 km, Tuesday = 12/100 * 150 = 18 km. Wednesday = 39 km, Thursday = 45 km, Friday = 21 km
Similarly Distances downstream:
Monday = 27 km, Tuesday = 45 km. Wednesday = 18 km, Thursday = 36 km, Friday = 54 km
Let speed of still water upstream on Friday = x, then downstream on Thursday = (10-x)
Now
21/(x-3) = 36/[(10-x)+2.5)]
Solve, x = 6.5
So required ratio is 3.5 : 6.5 = 7 : 13
2. On Monday, the boat takes a total of 4 hrs 30 minutes to cover both upstream and downstream distance. Ratio of speed of boat in still water in going upstream to downstream is 4 : 5. Find the speed of boat in still water while going downstream.
A) 13 km/hr
B) 15 km/hr
C) 9 km/hr
D) 10 km/hr
E) 12 km/hr
Option B
Solution:

speeds â€“ 4x and 5x
So on Monday
27/(4x-3) + 27/(5x+3) = 9/2
Solve, x = 3
So downstream speed = 5x = 15 km/hr
3. On Tuesday, Ratio of speed of boat in still water in going upstream to downstream is 3 : 8. Also difference in speed of boat in still water in going upstream and downstream is 5 km/hr. If the total time taken by boat to cover upstream and downstream distance is 14 hours on Tuesday, find the speed of stream.
A) 2 km/hr
B) 1Â km/hr
C) 3 km/hr
D) 2.5 km/hr
E) 1.5 km/hr
Option B
Solution:

8x and 3x, Also 8x â€“ 3x = 5
So x = 1, speeds are 8 and 3 km/hr
So for Tuesday
18/(3-b) + 45/(8+b) = 14
Solve, b = 1 km/hr
4. On Wednesday, Ratio of speed of boat in still water in going upstream to downstream is 4 : 5. The difference between time to cover upstream distance and downstream distance is 5 hours, find the total time taken to cover upstream distance and downstream distance.
A) 5 hours
B) 4 hours
C) 7 hours
D) 8 hours
E) 6 hours
Option D
Solution:

On Wednesday
39/(4x-2) â€“ 18/(5x+2) = 10
Solve
Solve, x = 2 km/hr
So required distance :
39/(8-2) + 18/(10+2) = 8 hours
5. Time taken to cover the upstream distance on ThursdayÂ is 12 hours more thanÂ time taken to cover the downstream distance on Friday. Total speed of still water on Thursday and Friday is 11 km/hr. Find the ratio of speed of still water on Thursday and Friday.
A) 6 : 7
B) 4 : 5
C) 7 : 9
D) 5 : 6
E) 7 : 8
Option D
Solution:

Let speed of still water upstream on ThursdayÂ = x, then downstream on Friday = (11-x)
Now
45/(x-2.5) – 54/[(11-x)+3)] = 12
15/(x-2.5) – 18/(14-x) = 4
The time is integral value, so by putting values higher than 2.5, x can be found
x = 5
So required ratio is 5 : 6Â
