The questions asked in the quantitative aptitude 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**Directions (1-3): The following questions are accompanied by two statements (A) and (B). You have to determine which statements(s) is/are sufficient/necessary to answer the questions.**

**Q1. In a box three type of balls are there, Black, Red and White. If no. of white balls is given then find out the probability of getting one white ball.**

**(A) Probability of getting one Red ball is given.**

**(B) Probability of getting one black ball is given.**

Only A

Only B

Either Only A or Only B

A and B together

A and B together are not sufficient

**Q2. What is the volume of the sphere?**

**(A) Surface area of hemisphere is equal to the total surface area of the cylinder having radius and height in ratio 3 : 4.**

**(B) When we cut sphere into two hemi-sphere then total surface area is equal to the area of a circle whose radius is 21 cm.**

Only A

Only B

Either Only A or Only B

A and B together

A and B together are not sufficient

Solution:

Only B is sufficient to answer the question

When we cut sphere into hemisphere

Total surface area of two hemisphere

3Ï€r² + 3Ï€r² = Ï€ × 21 × 21

r = find out

So, volume of sphere can be find out.

When we cut sphere into hemisphere

Total surface area of two hemisphere

3Ï€r² + 3Ï€r² = Ï€ × 21 × 21

r = find out

So, volume of sphere can be find out.

**Q3. A shopkeeper gets a loss of 70 Rs. when he sold an article at 20% discount on M.P. Find cost price of Article.**

**(A) % of mark up above cost price is equal to % discount given on M.P.**

**(B) when no discount is given, article sold at profit of 350 Rs.**

Only A

Only B

Either Only A or Only B

A and B together

A and B together are not sufficient

Solution:

From A→

Discount % = 20% = Mark up%

If cost price is 100x then Markup price 120x and selling price is → 96x

So ATQ,

100x – 96x = 70

From B→

Let mark up price is → 100x

When discount is given

Then selling price is → 80x

And cost price is → 80x + 70

When no discount is given

Then selling price is → 100x

And cost price is → 100x – 350

ATQ,

100x – 80x = 350 + 70

20x = 420

100x = 2100

80x = 1680

C.P. → 1680 + 70 = 1750

So Either A or B alone required.

Discount % = 20% = Mark up%

If cost price is 100x then Markup price 120x and selling price is → 96x

So ATQ,

100x – 96x = 70

From B→

Let mark up price is → 100x

When discount is given

Then selling price is → 80x

And cost price is → 80x + 70

When no discount is given

Then selling price is → 100x

And cost price is → 100x – 350

ATQ,

100x – 80x = 350 + 70

20x = 420

100x = 2100

80x = 1680

C.P. → 1680 + 70 = 1750

So Either A or B alone required.

**Q15. Ratio of age of Vikas to age of Rohit 2: 3 and average age of Rohit, Vikas and Rahul is 23. When Arjun joins the group average age of these 4 persons is 25 years. Calculate sum of age of Arjun and Rahul, if Rahul is 13 years older than Vikas ?**

40 years

47 years

60 years

can’t be determined

None of these

Solution:

Let age of Arjun, Vikas, Rohit and Rahul is a, b, c and d respectively

Now,

b : c = 2 : 3 …(i)

b + c + d = 23 × 3 = 69 …(ii)

a + b + c + d = 25 × 4 = 100

∴ a = 31 years.

Also d – b = 13

d = b + 13

Put this value in eq. (ii)

2b + c = 56

From (i) b = 16 years, d = 29 years

c = 24 years

∴ a + d = 31 + 29 = 60 years.

Now,

b : c = 2 : 3 …(i)

b + c + d = 23 × 3 = 69 …(ii)

a + b + c + d = 25 × 4 = 100

∴ a = 31 years.

Also d – b = 13

d = b + 13

Put this value in eq. (ii)

2b + c = 56

From (i) b = 16 years, d = 29 years

c = 24 years

∴ a + d = 31 + 29 = 60 years.
