Question 1 of 25.

Veena bought a watch costing Rs. 1404 including sales tax at 8%. She asked the shopkeeper to reduce the price of the watch so that she can save the amount equal to the tax. The reduction of the price of the watch is?

1. 120
2. 104
3. 112
4. 108

B. Rs.104

1.08x = 1404
x = 1300
The reduction of the price of the watch = 104

Question 2 of 25.

A Sales Executive gets a commission on total sales at 8%. If the sale is exceeded Rs.10,000 he gets an additional commission as a bonus of 4% on the excess of sales over Rs.10,000. If he gets the total commission of Rs.950, then the bonus he received is?

1. 50
2. 40
3. 36
4. 48

50

Commission up to 10000 = 10000 * 8/100 = 800
Ratio = 2x:x ; Commission = 2x, Bonus = x ;
Bonus = 950 – 800 * 1/3 = 150 * 1/3 = 50

Question 3 of 25.

In a library 60% of the books are in Hindi, 60% of the remaining books are in English rest of the books are in Malayalam. If there are 4800 books in English, then the total number of books in Malayalam are?

1. 3400
2. 3500
3. 3100
4. 3200

3200

Let there are X books in the library.
Hindi books = 60% of X = 60X /100 = 0.6X
Remaining Books = X – 0.6X = 0.4X
English books = 40% of reaming books = 60% of 0.4X = 0.24X.
Malayalam Books = X-0.6X -0.24X = 0.16X
Given,
0.24X = 4800
X = 4800/0.24 = 20000
Malayalam Books = 0.16X = 0.16*20000 = 3200.

Question 4 of 25.

Initially, Suresh has Rs.200 in his paytm wallet then he increased it by 20%. Once again he increased his amount by 25%. The final value of money in his wallet will be how much % greater than the initial amount?

1. 40%
2. 50%
3. 80%
4. 60%

50%

200 + 20% of 200 = 240
240 + 25% of 240 = 300
Required percentage = 300 – 200/200 * 100 = 50%

Question 5 of 25.

In an office there are 40% female employees. 50% of the male employees are UG graduates. The total 52% of employees are UG graduates out of 1800 employees. What is the number of female employees who are UG graduates?

1. 362
2. 412
3. 396
4. 428

396

Total employees = 1800
female employees = 40%
male employees = 60%
50% of male employess = UG graduates = 30%
Female employees who are UG graduates = 22%
22% of 1800 = 396

Question 6 of 25.

In an election only two candidates A and B contested 30% of the voters did not vote and 1600 votes were declared as invalid. The winner, A got 4800 votes more than his opponent thus he secured 51% votes of the total voters on the voter list. Percentage votes of the loser candidate, B out of the total voters on the voter list is:

1. 5.6%
2. 3%
3. 6.2%
4. 5%

3%

Total voters on the voter list = x
0.51x + 0.51x – 4800 = 0.70x – 1600
1.02x – 4800 = 0.70x – 1600
x = 10000
Votes of the loser candidate = 5100 – 4800 = 300
Percentage votes of the loser candidate = 300/10000 * 100 = 3%

Question 7 of 25.

The monthly income of Shyama and Kamal together is Rs.28000. The income of Shyama and Kamal is increased by 25% and 12.5% respectively. The new income of Kamal becomes 120% of the new salary of Shyama. What is the new income of Shyama?

1. 15000
2. 18000
3. 16000
4. 14000

15000

The monthly income of Shyama and Kamal => S + K = 28000 —(1)
Shyama’s income = x; Kamal’s income = 28000 – x.
K = 120/100 * S —(2)
S’s new income = (28000 – x)*112.5/100
K’s new income = x * 125/100
(28000 – x)*112.5/100 = x * 125/100
x = 12000
New Income of Shyama = 125% of 12000 = 15000

Question 8 of 25.

The maximum marks per paper in 3 subjects in Mathematics , Physics and Chemistry are set in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3 respectively. Giri obtained 40% in Mathematics, 60% in Physics and 35% in Chemistry papers. What is overall percentage marks did he get overall?

1. 32%
2. 50%
3. 60%
4. 44%

44%

40*1/100  : 60*2/100 : 35*3/100 = 0.4:1.2:1.05
Overall % =100* [0.4+1.2+1.05]/1+2+3 = 265/6 = 44.16 = 44%

Question 9 of 25.

Fresh fruits contain 75% while dry fruits contain 20% water. If the weight of dry fruits is 300 kg, what was its total weight when it was fresh?

1. 900kg
2. 850kg
3. 960kg
4. 920kg

960kg

Quantity of water in 300 kg dry fruits, = (20 /100) *300 = 60 kg
Quantity of fruit alone= 300-60 =240 kg
25 kg fruit piece in 100 kg fresh fruits
For 240 = (100 *240)/25 = 960 kg.

Question 10 of 25.

The prices of two articles are in the ratio 3 : 4. If the price of the first article be increased by 10% and that of the second by Rs. 4, the original ratio remains the same. The original price of the second article is

1. 40
2. 35
3. 10
4. 30

40

Let the price of two articles are 3X and 4X.
After increment the ratio will be:
110% of 3x/(4X+4) = 3/4
x=10
Thus the CP of second article = 4X = 4*10 = Rs. 40.

Question 11 of 25.

A reduction of 20% percent in the price of rice enables a housewife to buy 5 kg more for rupees 1200. The reduced price per kg of rice

1. 36
2. 35
3. 48
4. 60

48

let original price is x rupees per kg
1200/(4x/5) – 1200/x = 5
We will get x = 60, so reduced price = (4*60)/5 = 48

Question 12 of 25.

The population of a village has increased annually at the rate of 20%. If at the end of 3 years it is 21600, the population in the beginning of the first year?

1. 10000
2. 12500
3. 15000
4. 17500

12500

21600 = P*(1 + 20/100)^3

Question 13 of 25.

The ratio between male and female in a city is 3: 7. The children percentage among the males and females of the city is 25 and 30 percent respectively. If the number of adult males in the city is 18000, then find the population of the town

1. 70000
2. 80000
3. 85000
4. 95000

80000

Males and females are 3x and 7x respectively
(3x)*75/100 = 18000. X = 8000
so total population = 10*8000 =  80000

Question 14 of 25.

Weight of A and B are in the ratio of 3:5. If the weight of A is increased by 20 percent and then the total weight becomes 132 kg with an increase of 10 percent. B weight is increased by what percent.

1. 4%
2. 2%
3. 3%
4. 5%

4%

Weight of A and B are 3x and 5x.
Initial weight before increase = (132*100)/110 = 120
8x = 120. X = 15
Initial weight of A and B are 45 and 75 kg respectively.
New weight of A = 54 so weight of B = 132 – 54 = 78.
So % increase = [(78-75)/75]*100 = 4 %

Question 15 of 25.

One type of liquid contains 20 percent of milk and second type of liquid contains 40 percent milk. If 4 part of the first and 6 part of the second are mix, then what is the percent of water in the mixture.

3. 68%
4. 70%

68%

Do these type of question by taking 100 litre
water = 80ltr and 60ltr in first and second mixture respectively
now percent of water  = [(80*4 + 60*6)/1000]100 = 68%
