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.

**Q1. Pipes A and B can fill a tank in 5 and 6 hrs, respectively. Pipe C can empty it in 12 hrs. The tank is half full. All the three pipes are open simultaneously. After how much time the tank will be full?**

**Q2. Two cars, an Alto and a Swift, start at the same time in opposite directions from two distinct points P and Q. Starting from P, the Alto reaches Q in 6 hrs 20 minutes and the Swift starting from Q, reaches Pin 4 hrs 45 minutes. What is the speed of the Swift, if the speed of the Alto is 60 Km/h?**

110 Km/h

100 Km/h

90 Km/h

80 Km/h

50 Km/h

**Q3. Smriti drove at the speed of 45 kmph from home to a resort. Returning over the same route, she got stuck in traffic and took an hour longer; also she could drive only at the speed of 40 kmph. How many kilometres did she drive each way ?**

250 kms

300 kms

310 kms

275 kms

360 kms

Solution:

Let time taken by him from home to resort is t hours

∴ 45t = (t + 1) × 40

⇒ t = 40/5

⇒ t = 8 hrs

∴ Required distance travelled by him each way

= 45 × 8

= 360 km

∴ 45t = (t + 1) × 40

⇒ t = 40/5

⇒ t = 8 hrs

∴ Required distance travelled by him each way

= 45 × 8

= 360 km

**Q4. The ratio between the speed of a SUV and a Tata Tiago is 16 : 15 respectively. Also a Omni Van covered a distance of 480 kms. In 8 hours. The speed of the Omni Van is three-forth the speed of the SUV. How much distance will the Tata Tiago in 6 hours ?**

**Q6. Wheels of radius 7 cm and 14 cm start rolling simultaneously from X and Y, which are 1980 cm apart, towards each other in opposite directions. Both of them make same number of revolutions per second. If both of them meet after 10 seconds, the speed of the smaller wheel is**

**Q7. Pankaj walked at 5 km/h for certain part of the journey and then he took an auto for the remaining part of the journey travelling at 25 km/h. He took 10 hours for the entire journey. What part of journey did he travelled by auto if the average speed of the entire journey be 17 km/h:**

750 km

100 km

150 km

200 km

500 km

Solution:

Let time taken by Pankaj during walking be t hours

∴ 5t + 25 [10 - t] = 17 × 10

⇒ 20t = 80

⇒ t = 4 hours

∴ Part of journey travelled by auto

= 25 × 6

= 150 km

∴ 5t + 25 [10 - t] = 17 × 10

⇒ 20t = 80

⇒ t = 4 hours

∴ Part of journey travelled by auto

= 25 × 6

= 150 km

**Q8. A man covers 1/3rd of his journey by cycle at 50 km/ h, the next 1/3 by car at 30 km/h, and the rest by walking at 7 km/h. Find the average speed during the whole journey.**
