Dear Students,

Quantitative Aptitude Quiz For IBPS PO Mains

Numerical Ability or Quantitative Aptitude Section has given heebie-jeebies to the aspirants when they appear for a banking examination. As the level of every other section is only getting complex and convoluted, there is no doubt that this section, too, makes your blood run cold. The questions asked in this section are calculative and very time-consuming. But once dealt with proper strategy, speed, and accuracy, this section can get you the maximum marks in the examination. Following is the Quantitative Aptitude quiz to help you practice with the best of latest pattern questions.

SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Working efficiency of A = 120% of working efficiency of B
B can complete ‘X’ work = 36 days
A can complete ‘X’ work = 30 days
Let ‘X’ work = 180 unit
Working efficiency of A = 6 unit/day
Working efficiency of B = 5 unit/day
Now ATQ,
15×6+10×5+C×10=180
So, C’s working efficiency = 4 unit/day
Total units of work ‘Y’= (6+4)×12+16×5=200 units
Total units of both work ‘X’ and work ‘Y’ = 180+200= 380 units
So, Working efficiency of D = 380/38=10 unit/day
Now: A, B and C work together in ‘x’ work =1/3×180 unit=60 unit
A + B + C = (6 + 4 + 5) unit per day
So, time required to complete 60 unit by A, B and C =60/15=4 days
Remaining work = 180-60= 120 unit
(B + D) ⇒ (5 + 10) unit per day
=120/15=8 days.
B worked for = 4 + 8 = 12 days.

S2. Ans.(e)
Sol.
‘X’ work = 180 unit
A + C + D ⇒ 6 + 4 + 10 = 20 unit/day
Days=180/20=9 days
Work = 200 unit
(A + B + C + D) ⇒ (6 + 5 + 4 + 10) = 25 unit/day
=200/25=8 days
Total time = (9 + 8) = 17 days

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let efficiency of E is Z unit/day
he works for 12 days
work complete = 12Z unit
B and C work for 8 days = (5 + 4) × 8 unit = 72 unit
Remaining work = 180 - 72 = 108 unit
Efficiency of E=108/12= 9 unit⁄day
Now,
A and E completed work ‘X’
=180/15=12 days
D, B and C completed both work ‘X’ and ‘Y’
=(200+180)/19=20 days
Required Ratio = 12: 20 ⇒ 3: 5
