ARITHMETIC ABILITY:

Q1. 3 3/8 * 6 5/12 - 2 3/16 * 3 1/2 = ?

a. 21
b. 18
c. 14
d. 15
e. 16

ANS:

Explanation:

? = 3 3/8 * 6 5/12 - 2 3/16 * 3 1/2
= (27/8) * (77/12) - (35/16) * (7/2)
= (693/32) - (245/32) = 448/32 = 14.
Hence the answer is option C.

Q2. 12 years ago the ratio between the ages of A and B was 3 : 4 respectively. The present age of B is 3 3/4 times of Cs present age if Cs present age is 16 years, then what is As present age? (in years)

a. 48
b. 42
c. 60
d. 54
e. 36

ANS: a

Explanation:

We are given that (A - 12) / (B - 12) = 3/4 ... (1)
and B = 3 3/4C = (15/4)C ... (2)
Since, C = 16 yrs, put this value in equation (2)
we get B = (15/4) * 16 = 60 years.
Now put this value in equation (1), we get
A - 12 = (3/4) * (60-12) = 36
=> A = 48 yrs.

Q3.

a. 13 1/4
b. 14 1/4
c. 11 5/6
d. 12 3/4
e. 12 1/8

ANS: d

Explanation:

Q4. (1/3) rd the diagonal of a square is cube root of 2. What is the measure of the side of the concerned square?

a. 12 m
b. 9 m
c. 18 m
d. 6 m
e. 7 m

ANS: b

Explanation:

Let a be the side of a square.
Therefore, diagonal (d) = sqrt (2a)
We are given that
Hence the answer is option B.

Q5.

a. 6 1/2
b. 5 1/2
c. 5 3/4
d. 6 3/4
e. 6 1/4

ANS: d

Explanation:

Q6. The perimeter of a rectangle whose length is 6m more than its breadth is 84m. What would be the area of a triangle whose base is equal to the diagonal of the rectangle and whose height is equal to the length of the rectangle? (in m2)

a. 324
b. 372
c. 360
d. 364
e. 348

ANS: c

Explanation:

Let l, b and d be the length, breadth and diagonal of the rectangle
Therefore, l â€“ b = 6 and 2(l + b) = 84 or l + b = 42
Solving the above equations, we get l = 24m and b = 18m
Therefore, d2 = ( l2 + b2)  Putting the values, we get
d2 = 242 + 182 = 576 + 324 = 900 => d = 30m
Let b and h be the base and height of the triangle
We are given that b = d = 30m and h = l = 24m
Thus, area of triangle = (1/2)bh = (1/2) * 30 * 24 = 360 m2

Q7. M, N, O and P divided Rs. 44,352/- among themselves M took (3/8)th of the money, N took (1/6)th of the remaining amount and the rest was divided among O and P in the ratio of 3:4 respectively. How much did O get as his share?

a. Rs. 9,600/-
b. Rs. 20,600/-
c. Rs. 10,300/-
d. Rs. 8,700/-
e. Rs. 9,900/-

ANS: e

Explanation:

Share of M = (3/8) * 44352 = 16632/-
Remaining amount = 44352 â€“ 16632 = 27720/-
Share of N = (1/6) * 27720 = 4620/-
Remaining amount = 27720 â€“ 4620 = 23100/-
Share of O = (3/7) * 23100 = 9900/-

Q8. The respective ratio of salaries of A and B is 8:7, if the salary of B increases by 20% and the salary of A increases by 21% the new ratio becomes 96 : 77 respectively. What is As salary?

a. Rs. 22,560/-
b. Rs. 21,600/-
c. Rs. 20,640/-
d. Rs. 23.040/-
e. Cannot be determined

ANS: e

Explanation:

Only ratio of the salary is given, but salary is not given, so we cannot determined the salary of A . Hence answer is option E.

Q9. (sqrt 4356 * sqrt?) / sqrt (6084) = 11

a. 144
b. 196
c. 169
d. 81
e. 121

ANS: c

Explanation:

Therefore, ? = 132 = 169

Q10. 3 ? 14 55 274 1643

a. 11
b. 5
c. 6
d. 8
e. 7

ANS: b

Explanation:

Here the given pattern is:
3         ?       14        55         274        1643
The pattern:
3 Ã— 2 â€“ 1 = 5, 5 Ã— 3 â€“ 1 = 14
14 Ã— 4 â€“ 1 = 55, 55 Ã— 5 â€“ 1 = 274
274 Ã— 6 â€“ 1 = 1643, So ? = 5

DIRECTIONS for questions 27 to 30:  Read the given passage and answer the questions.

In Sheela Barse v. Union of India, the Supreme Court of India, had issued various directions in regard to the physically and mentally retarded children as also abandoned or destitute children who are lodged in various jails in the country for safe custody. The Court further held:

So far as concerns pending cases relating to offences punishable with imprisonment of not more than 7 years, it is directed that every State Government shall complete the investigation within a period of 3 months from today if the investigation has not already resulted in filing of charge-sheet and if a charge-sheet has been filed, the trial shall be completed within a period of 6 months from today and if it is not, the prosecution shall be quashed.

The State Governments must set up necessary remand homes and observation homes where children accused of an offence can be lodged pending investigation and trial. On no account should the children be kept in jail and if a State government has not got sufficient accommodation in its remand homes or observation homes, the children should be released on bail instead of being subjected to incarceration in jail.

Instead of each State having its own Childrens Act different in procedure and content from the Childrens Act in other States, the Central Government should initiate Parliamentary Legislation on the subject, so that there is complete uniformity in regard to the various provisions relating to children in the entire territory of the country. The Childrens Act which may be enacted by Parliament should contain not only provisions for investigation and trial of offences against children below the age of 16 years but should also contain mandatory provisions for ensuring social, economic and psychological rehabilitation of the children who are either accused of offences or are abandoned or destitute or lost.
