# Quantitative Aptitude for IBPS RRB PO and Clerk Mains: 26th September 2018

Dear Students,

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. Quantity I:’x’ -. Two circles are concentric with center ‘O’. Their radii are 8cm and 10cm respectively. ‘B’ and ‘C’ are the points of contact of two tangents drawn from bigger circle to smaller circle from point ‘A’ lying on bigger circle. ‘x’ is area of quadrilateral ABOC formed in cm^2
Quantity II: - ‘y’ - The lengths of two parallel sides of a trapezium are 6 cm and 8 cm. If the height of the trapezium be 6 cm, then its area is ‘y’ cm^2
(a) Quantity I > Quantity II
(b) Quantity I < Quantity II
(c) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II
(d) Quantity I ≤ Quantity II
(e) Quantity I = Quantity II or No relation

Q2. Quantity I: ‘x’ -. Kundan invested Rs. 20,000 in a scheme offering 22% p.a. at Simple interest. After 2 years he withdraws his money and invested in a bank which is offering ‘x%’ p.a. at compound interest. After 3 years, interest earned by him is Rs.1350 less than amount invested by him in this bank.

(a) Quantity I > Quantity II
(b) Quantity I < Quantity II
(c) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II
(d) Quantity I ≤ Quantity II
(e) Quantity I = Quantity II or No relation

Q3. Quantity I—‘x’: P alone can do the work in ‘x’ days. Q can complete a work in 5 more days than P while Q does the same work in 9 more days than R. If Q and P can complete the whole work in same time as time taken by R alone to do the whole work.
Quantity II —‘y’: ‘y’ is the days taken by 8 men and 14 women to reap 7/12  part of 360-hectare land by working 7 hrs per day if 6 men and 10 women can reap 5/12 part of the land in 15 days by working 6 hrs per day. It is also given that work of 2 men is equal to that of 3 women.
(a) Quantity I > Quantity II
(b) Quantity I < Quantity II
(c) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II
(d) Quantity I ≤ Quantity II
(e) Quantity I = Quantity II or No relation

Q4. Quantity I — ‘x’: ‘x’ is the difference between the speeds of X and Y. Distance between P and Q is 60 km. X and Y start from P at same time & meet 1st time at a place 12 km from Q. They return to P immediately after reaching Q. The speed of slower person is 48 km/hr.
Quantity II —‘y’: ‘y’ is the average speed of train if a distance of 600 km is to be covered in 2 parts. In 1st phase 120 km is traveled by train and rest by car and it took total of 8 hrs, but if 200 km is covered by train and rest by car it takes 20 min more.
(a) Quantity I > Quantity II
(b) Quantity I < Quantity II
(c) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II
(d) Quantity I ≤ Quantity II
(e) Quantity I = Quantity II or No relation
