First u have to clear in all section then try to manage atleast 130 to 140 minimum...but try to manage 150 up .higher marks will give you posting near to your location but for lower marks you have to go away in ur respective state at finall ...best luk

Anonymous said...

i think 130/200 more than enough.in spi po exam out of 15 lac student only 3000 got 150/250.ie 60%.
vacancy was only 1500.and questions were easy.
but in ibps po around 15 lac student applied.vacancy is 20000.so now you can imagine cut off for individual category.and questions are really tough in ibps po exam.so if anyone score 100/200 then he will definitely get a job

If 60 men consume 45kg sugar in 120 days.
then in how many days 15 men consume 40kg sugar?

please solve this and if possible gave explanation also.
this question was asked in RRB-Clerk dated 6th october evening shift.

thanks

m s d
60 45 120
15 40 ?
60 men can take 120 days so 15 men means definitely take more days so (60/15)
45 kg sugar can consume 120 days so 40kg means definitely take more days so (45/40)

then
(60/15)*(45/40)*(120)=540 days
