Dear Aspirants,

Reasoning Questions for IBPS RRB PO and Clerk 2018

Reasoning Ability is an onerous section. With the increasing complexity of questions, it becomes hard for one to give it the cold shoulder. The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming banking exams like IBPS RRB PO and Clerk is to practice continuously with all your heart and soul. And, to let you practice with the best of the latest pattern questions, here is the Adda247 Reasoning Quiz based on the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

23
26
25
22
None of these
Solution:
No of boys = x; No of girls = 2x;
x+2x = 90 => 3x = 90
x (Boys)= 30 ; 2x(Girls) = 60
Number of student behind Rakesh = 90 – 14 = 76
No of girls behind Rakesh = 60 – 10 = 50
No of boys behind Rakesh = 76 – 50 = 26
