Dear Aspirants,

### Quantitative Aptitude Quiz For IBPS PO/Clerk Prelims

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.

12.5 kmph
14 kmph
Solution:

Q3. A man can row a boat at 5 kmph in still water. If the velocity of current is 1 kmph and it takes him 1 hour to row to a place and come back, how far is the place?
2.4 km
2.5 km
3 km
3.6 km
4.6 km
Solution:

Q4. A man can row a boat against the current three fourth of a kilometer in 15 min and returns same distance in 10 min, then ratio of his speed in still water to that of current is:
3 : 5
5 : 3
1 : 5
5 : 1

Solution:

Q5. If the speed of a swimmer in still water is 9 kmph. Find the downstream speed of the swimmer, when the river is flowing with the speed of 6 kmph.
15 kmph
18 kmph
3 kmph
12 kmph
10 kmph
Solution:

Q6. A man can row a boat 6 kmph in still water. If the speed of the current is 2 kmph, it takes 3 hours more in upstream than in the downstream for the same distance. The distance is:

4 kmph
3 kmph
6 kmph
2 kmph
8 kmph
Solution:

Q8. A boat has to travel upstream 20 km distance from point X of a river to point Y. The total time taken by boat in travelling from point X to Y and Y to X is 41 min 40 s. What is the speed of the boat?
66 kmph
72 kmph
48 kmph
Cannot be determined
None of these
Solution:

Here, we cannot find the required answer as there are two variables in one equation.

Q9. A swimmer goes downstream from one port to another in 4 hr. It covers the same distance upstream in 5 hr. If the speed of the stream is 2 kmph, then find the distance between the two ports.
80 km
60 km
70 km
50 km
75 km
Solution:

Q10. A boat running upstream takes 528 min to cover a certain distance, while it takes 240 min to cover the same distance running downstream. What is the ratio between the speed of the boat in still water and speed of the current respectively?
2 : 1
3 : 2
8 : 3
3 : 8
5 : 9
Solution:

Q11. The ratio of speeds of a motorboat in still water to that of the speed of current is 36 : 5. The motorboat goes along with the current in 5 hours 10 min. Find the time taken by motorboat to come back.
5 hours 50 min
6 hours
6 hours 50 min
12 hours 10 min
None of these
Solution:
