# Mixed Aptitude Quiz - 5 (For SBI Clerical 2016) #### Ques 1.

X, Y and Z are situated at the bank of river which is flowing at a constant rate. Y is at an equal distance with X and Z. A swimmer Aviral takes 10 h to swim from X to Y and Y to X. Also, he takes 4 h to swim from X to Z. What is the ratio of speed of Aviral in still water and speed of stream?

Solution :

Speed with stream " u " =a+b
Speed against stream "v"=a-b
Distance between X to Z = 2D
==>2D/u = 4 hours
==> D=2u
D/u + D/v = 10 hours
==>2u/u  + 2u/v = 10
==>u/v=4
put  u nd v value.
==>a+b/a-b = 4
==>a/b = 5/3

#### Ques 2.

If s1 nd s2 be the surface area of a sphere and the curved surface area of the circumscribed cylinder respectively, then s1 is equal to?

Solution :

Radius of cylinder= r
Height=2r
S1= 4πr²
S2=2πr×2r=4πr²
S1=S2

#### Ques 3.

8,12,24,60,180,630 ?

Solution :

12= 8*1.5
24= 12*2
60= 24*2.5
180= 60*3
630= 180*3.5
630*4 = 2520

#### Ques 4.

A train starts from Jammu for Srinagar at 13:30 and reaches at 17:30. Another train starts from Srinagar at 15:30 and reaches Jammu at 19:00. At what time both train meet?

Solution :

Speed of first train D/4
Speed of second  train D/7/2=2D/7
Second  train starts 2 hrs after first train so,distance travelled by first  train by that time is (D/4)*2=D/2
So,for remaining distance time taken by both trains is equal to meet each other so, (2D/7)*T=D/2-(D/4)*T
T=14/15=56 mins
13:30+56mins=16:26

#### Ques 5.

A and B can do a piece of work in 30 days .A having worked for 16 days , B finished the remaining work alone in 44 days .In how many days shall B finish the whole work alone?

Solution :

A and B did work in 30 days ==> 30A+30B=1 ---  i
A works for 16 days and B works for 44 day ==>16B+44B=1 --- ii
solving  A,B  from i and ii
We get 1/60
so B done 1/60 days

#### Ques 6.

A contractor employed 25 labourers on a job. He was paid 275 for the work. After retaining 20% of this sum, he distributed the remaining amount amongst the labourers. If the number of men to women labourers was in the ratio 2 : 3 and their wages in the ratio 5 : 4, what wages did a woman labourer get ?

Solution :

Men 25×2/5= 10
Women 25×3/5=15
Wage each man 5x
Woman 4x
20% of amount retaining = 275* 20% = 55
Remaining amount = 275-55=220
==>10×5x + 15×4x= 220
==>110x= 220
==>x= 2
Wages of women = 4X = 4×2=8

#### Ques 7.

A certain amount was to be distributed among A,B,C in the ratio 3:4:5 respectively,but was erroneously distributed in the ratio 9:4:7 respectivly. As a result of this B got 260 less. What is the amount?

Solution :

3+4+5 = 12
9+4+7 = 20

( 3:4:5 ) *20 = 60:80:100 = 240 parts
( 9:4:7 ) *12 =  108:48:84

Error in B = 80-48 = 32 parts
B less than 260 with error.

32 parts.            ---- 260
240 parts.          ----    x

==> Total amount (x) = (260*240)/32 = 1950

#### Ques 8.

If the coin is  to be tossed three times, what is the probability that on  at least  one of the  tosses of the coin will turn up Tails ?

Solution :

1 - 1/8 = 7/8

#### Ques 9.
