Quantitative Aptitude Mock Test-3: Answers with Solutions

Explanation: Explanation:  35% of 40% =0.14 = 14%
Rest of the houses have exactly one female or one male = (40 – 14) = 26%

Explanation:   In the case of milk & water, the milk amount is considered as 100. Now during the comparison of water with milk, the water amount is taken as profit %.
Then, M:W = 5:1
100: 20% profit on selling milk on CP but he sold it 25% gain
So , total profit = 20+25+ (20*25)/100= 50%

Explanation: Explanation: Explanation: Explanation: Explanation: Explanation:  Let the sum of money that Aabha has be Rs x.
Now, 1 day’s wages of gardener = x/36 rupees
1 day’s wages of cook = x/45 rupees
1 day’s wages of both = x/36 + x/45 = x/20 rupees
Thus, same amount of money will sufficient to pay the wages of both for 20 days.

Explanation: Sum of the remaining two numbers = (5 × 6) – [(3.5 × 2) + (3.8 × 2)]
= 30 – (7 + 7.6) = 30 – 14.6 = 15.4
∴ Required average = 15.4/2 = 7.7

Explanation: Originally, let the number of seats for Science, Mathematics and Biology be 5x, 7x and 8x respectively. Number of increased seats are (140% of 5x),(150% of 7x)(175% of 8x).
= (140/100 × 5x),(150/100 × 7x) and (175/100 × 8x)
= 7x, 21x/2 and 14x
= 14x : 21x : 28x
= 2 : 3 : 4

Explanation: Explanation: Applying Rule of Alligation, Explanation: And     TR = SR = 15 cm
Let      QU = x cm
Then    PQ = (6 + x) cm
And      PR = 6 + 15 = 21 cm
∴         (QR)2 = (PQ)2 + (QR)2
(x + 15)2 = (6 + x)2 + (21)2            (∵ QR = QS + RS)
⇒ x = 14 cm
⇒ QS = 14 cm
∴ RS – QS = 15 – 14 = 1cm

Explanation: Let the angle is x°
Hint: Complement of the angle will be 90-x (If two angles add to 90°, we say they "Complement" each other.)
Given, angle = 5 × Complement of the angle
∴ x = 5(90 – x)
⇒ x = 450 – 5x
⇒ 6x = 450
⇒ x = 75

Explanation: Since OC and OD are in the same line.
∴ ∠AOC + ∠AOP + ∠POD = 180°
⇒ 4b° + 75° + b° = 180°
⇒ 5b° + 75° = 180°
⇒ 5b° = 105°
⇒ b = 21°

Explanation: AB is a diameter ∠ABC = 90° (by semi circle angle property) so, in triangle ABC
ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
So, ∠ADC + ∠ABC = 180°
∠ADC = 180°-70°= 110°

Explanation: Explanation: Explanation: Explanation: The average number of junior engineers = 850/5 = 170

Explanation:  Increase in the number of engineers:
Company A = (400*120)/100 = 480
Company C = (700*130)/100 = 910
Company D = (950*140)/100 = 1330
Total engineers = 480 + 650+ 910 + 1330 + 750 = 4120
Total original number of engineers = 400 + 650 + 700 + 950 + 750 = 3450
% increase = [(4120 – 3450)/3450]*100 = 19% (approx.)

Explanation: Required ratio = 150:200 = 3: 4

Explanation:  Number of assistant engineers after 37% increase = (1050*137)/100 = 1438.5
Number of post graduate engineers after 20% decrease = (1500*80)/100 = 1200
Required % = [(1438.5 – 1200)/1200]*100 = 19.87%

Explanation:  The average number of junior engineers = 850/5 = 170
The average number of assistant engineers = 1100/5 = 220
Difference = 50
