Their were 15 questions time was only 45 minutes. Most aptitude questions were the previous CAT questions. One have to shown the details of the answers in the work sheet .dont mug the answer...solve it out..and dnt ask silly question to hr...... 1) In how many ways can the letters of the word 'PROBLEMS' be arranged in row such that the first letter is p and last letter is s always? Ans: Problems So we have to change the middle 6 letters. So as to keep p and s constant. Hence 6! is the answer. 2) In a village 5/9 ratio are males. If 30 per of males are married how much percent of females are unmarried in total population? Answer: Let the population =x Males=(5/9)x Married males = 30% of (5/9)x = x/6 Married females = x/6 Total females = (x-(5/9)x)=4x/9 Unmarried females = (4x/9 x/6) = 5x/18 Required percentage = (5x/18 * 1/x * 100) = (250/9)% 3) Pipe A can fill the tank in 15 minutes, pipe B can fill the tank in 12 minutes and C can empty the tank in 6 minutes. If Pipe A and B open for for first 5 minutes and then C opened. Calculate the total time for emptying the tank? Answer: In 5 mins the tank 5(1/15+1/12) =3/4 is filled up in one min all three work is (1/15+1/12-1/6)= -1/60(-ve sign means the tank is done empty) hence time taken to empty 3/4 of tank is (3/4)*60= 45 mins 4) C takes two times as long A and B together take to complete work and B takes three times A and C together to complete the work. Working together A, B and C can do the work in 15 days. In what time A, B, and C complete work individually? Ans: c=2(a+b) Hence c 1 day work = 1/(2(a+b)) 2* c 1 day work= 1/(a+b) 2* c 1 day work + c 1 day work=c 1 day work+1/(a+b) 3 c 1 day work =(a+b+c) 1 day work 3 c 1 day work =1/15 c 1 day work=1/45 Hence C can do the job in 45 days. In the same way find b=60 days 5) The minute hand of a clock overtakes the the hour hand by 68 minutes of the correct time. How much time does the clock gain or lose in a day? Ans: The clock gains 10 10/43 minutes Sol: In a correct clock, the minute hand gains 55 min. spaces over the hour hand in 60 minutes. Answer: To be together again, the minute hand must gain 60 minutes over the hour hand. 55 minutes are gained in 60 min. 60 min. are gained in [(60/55) * 60] min == 65 5/11 min. But they are together after 65 mins.

Therefore, gain in 65 minutes = (65 5/11 - 65) = 5/11 mins. Gain in 24 hours = [(5/11) * (60*24)/65] = 10 10/43 mins. Therefore, the clock gains 10 10/43 minutes in 24 hours. 6) If father age is four time of son age 1 year ago. After 6 year father age exceed twice of age of son by 9. Find the ratio of father and son? Ans: 11:3 If father age is x and son age is y

(x-1)= 4(y-1) and (x+6)= 2(y+6)+9 => x=33, y=9

1. A three digit number consists of 9, 5 and one more number. When these digits are reversed and then subtracted from the original number the answer yielded will be consisting of the same digits arranged yet in a different order. What is the other digit? Sol. Let the digit unknown be n. The given number is then 900+50+n=950+n. When reversed the new number is 100n+50+9=59+100n. Subtracting these two numbers we get 891-99n. The digit can be arranged in 3 ways or 6 ways. We have already investigated 2 of these ways. We can now try one of the remaining 4 ways. One of these is n 95 100n+90+5=891-99n or 199n =796 So, n=4 The unknown digit is 4. 2.

Ten years ago, chandrawathis mother was four times older than her daughter. After 10years, the mother will be twice older than daughter. The present age of Chandrawathi is: Ans:20 years Sol: Let Chandrawathis age 10 years ago be x years. Her mothers age 10 years ago = 4x (4x+10)+10=2(x+10+10) x=10 Present age of Chandrawathi = (x+10) = 20years 20. Finding the wrong term in the given series 7, 28, 63, 124, 215, 342, 511 Ans: 28 Sol: Clearly, the correct sequence is 2^3 1, 3^3 1, 4^3 1, 5^3 1, . Therefore, 28 is wrong and should be replaced by (3^3 1) i.e, 26. 21. If a man walks at the rate of 5kmph, he misses a train by only 7min. However if he walks at the rate of 6 kmph he reaches the station 5 minutes before the arrival of the train.Find the distance covered by him to reach the station. Ans: 6km. Sol: Let the required distance be x km. Difference in the times taken at two speeds=12mins=1/5 hr. Therefore x/5-x/6=1/5 or 6x-5x=6 or x=6km. Hence, the required distance is 6 km 22. Walking 5/6 of its usual speed, a train is 10min late. Find the usual time to cover the journey? Ans: 50 mins

Sol: New speed = 5/6 of usual speed New time = 6/5 of usual time Therefore, (6/5 of usual time) usual time = 10min Therefore Usual time = 50min 23. A train running at 54 kmph takes 20 seconds to pass a platform. Next it takes 12 seconds to pass a man walking at 6 kmph in the same direction in which the train is going. Find the length of the train and the length of the platform. Ans: length of the train=160m length of the platform=140 m. Sol: Let the length of the train be x meters and length of the platform be y meters. Speed of the train relative to man=(54-6) kmph =48 kmph. =(48*5/18) m/sec =40/3 m/sec. In passing a man, the train covers its own length with relative speed. Therefore, length of the train=(Relative speed *Time) =(40/3 * 12) m =160 m. Also, speed of the train=(54 * 5/18) m/sec=15 m/sec. Therefore, x+y/2xy=20 or x+y=300 or y=(300-160 m=140 m. Therefore, Length of the platform=140 m. 24. A man is standing on a railway bridge which is 180m long. He finds that a train crosses the bridge in 20seconds but himself in 8 seconds. Find the length of the train and its speed. Ans: length of train=120m Speed of train=54kmph Sol: Let the length of the train be x meters Then, the train covers x meters in 8 seconds and (x + 180) meters in 20 seconds. Therefore x/8 = (x+180)/20 20x = 8(x+180) x = 120 Therefore Length of the train = 120m Speed of the train = 120/8 m/sec = 15 m/sec =15 * 18/5 kmph = 54kmph 25. A man sells an article at a profit of 25%. If he had bought it at 20 % less and sold it for Rs.10.50 less, he would have gained 30%. Find the cost price of the article? Ans: Rs. 50. Sol: Let the C.P be Rs.x. 1st S.P =125% of Rs.x.= 125*x/100= 5x/4. 2nd C.P=80% of x. = 80x/100 =4x/5.

2nd S.P =130% of 4x/5. = (130/100* 4x/5) = 26x/25. Therefore, 5x/4-26x/25 = 10.50 or x = 10.50*100/21=50. Hence, C.P = Rs. 50. 26. A grosser purchased 80 kg of rice at Rs.13.50 per kg and mixed it with 120 kg rice at Rs. 16 per kg. At what rate per kg should he sell the mixture to gain 16%? Ans: Rs.17.40 per kg. Sol: C.P of 200 kg of mix. = Rs (80*13.50+120*16) = Rs.3000. S.P = 116% of Rs 3000= Rs (116*3000/100) = Rs.3480. Rate of S.P of the mixture = Rs.3480/200.per kg. = Rs.17.40 per kg. 27. Two persons A and B working together can dig a trench in 8 hrs while A alone can dig it in 12 hrs. In how many hours B alone can dig such a trench? Ans: 24hours. Sol: (A+B)s one hours work =1/8, As one hours work =1/12 Therefore, Bs one hours work = (1/8-1/12) =1/24. Hence, B alone can dig the trench in 24 hours. 28. A and B can do a piece of work in 12 days ; B and C can do it in 20 days. In how many days will A, B and C finishes it working all together? Also, find the number of days taken by each to finish it working alone? Ans: 60 days Sol: (A+B)s one days work=1/12; (B+C)s one days work=1/15 and (A+C)s one days work=1/20. Adding, we get: 2(A+B+C)s one days work = (1/12+1/15+1/20)=1/5. Therefore, (A+B+C)s one days work=1/10. Thus, A, B and C together can finish the work in 10 days. Now, As one days work = *(A+B+C)s one days work+ *(B+C)s one days work+ = 1/10-1/15) = 1/30. Therefore, A alone can finish the work in 30 days. Similarly, Bs 1 days work = (1/10 -1/20) = 1/20. Therefore, B alone can finish the work in 20 days.

And, Cs 1 days work= (1/10-1/12) = 1/60. Therefore, C alone can finish the work in 60 days. 29. A is twice as good a workman as B and together they finish a piece of work in 18 days. In how many days will A alone finish the work? Ans: 27 days. Sol: (As 1 days work): (Bs 1 days work) = 2:1. (A + B)s 1 days work = 1/18. Divide 1/18 in the ratio 2:1. Therefore As 1 days work = (1/18 * 2/3) = 1/27. Hence, A alone can finish the work in 27 days. 30. 2 men and 3 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days while 3 men and 2 boys can do the same work in 8 days. In how many days can 2 men and 1 boy do the work? Ans: 12 days. Sol: Let 1 mans 1 days work = x and 1 boys 1 days work =y. Then, 2x+3y=1/10 and 3x+2y=1/8. Solving, we get: x=7/200 and y=1/100. Therefore (2 men +1 boy)s 1 days work = (2*7/200 + 1*1/100) = 16/200 = 2/25. So, 2 men and 1 boy together can finish the work in 25/2 =12 days. 31. What was the day of the week on 12th January, 1979? Ans: Friday Sol: Number of odd days in (1600 + 300) years = (0 + 1) = 1 odd day. 78 years = (19 leap years + 59 ordinary years) = (38 + 59) odd days = 6 odd days 12 days of January have 5 odd days. Therefore, total number of odd days= (1 + 6 + 5) = 5 odd days. Therefore, the desired day was Friday. 32. Find the day of the week on 16th july, 1776. Ans: Tuesday Sol: 16th july, 1776 means = 1775 years + period from 1st january to 16th july Now, 1600 years have 0 odd days. 100 years have 5 odd days.

75 years = 18 leap years + 57 ordinary years = (36 + 57) odd days = 93 odd days = 13 weeks + 2 odd days = 2 odd days Therefore, 1775 years have (0 + 5 + 2) odd days = 0 odd days. Now, days from 1st Jan to 16th july; 1776 Jan Feb March April May June July 31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 16 = 198 days = (28 weeks + 2 days) odd days Therefore, total number of odd days = 2 Therefore, the day of the week was Tuesday 33 .Find the angle between the minute hand and hour hand of a click when the time is 7.20? Ans: 100deg Sol: Angle traced by the hour hand in 12 hours = 360 degrees. Angle traced by it in 7 hrs 20 min i.e. 22/3 hrs = [(360/12) * (22/3)] = 220 deg. Angle traced by minute hand in 60 min = 360 deg. Angle traced by it in 20 min = [(360/20) * 60] = 120 deg. Therefore, required angle = (220 - 120) = 100deg. 34.The minute hand of a clock overtakes the hours hand at intervals of 65 min of the correct time. How much of the day does the clock gain or lose? Ans: The clock gains 10 10/43 minutes Sol: In a correct clock, the minute hand gains 55 min. spaces over the hour hand in 60 minutes. Answer: To be together again, the minute hand must gain 60 minutes over the hour hand. 55 minutes are gained in 60 min. 60 min. are gained in [(60/55) * 60] min == 65 5/11 min. But they are together after 65 mins. Therefore, gain in 65 minutes = (65 5/11 - 65) = 5/11 mins. Gain in 24 hours = [(5/11) * (60*24)/65] = 10 10/43 mins. Therefore, the clock gains 10 10/43 minutes in 24 hours. 6) Father was 4 times his son 1 year ago after 6 years father age will be 9 more than twice his son ages find treir present age?
