## Quantitative Aptitude Mock Test-5: Answers with Solutions

Explanation: Let the smaller number be x. Then larger number = (x + 1365)
∴ X + 1365 = 6x + 15
5x = 1350
X = 270
∴  Smaller number = 270

Explanation: When profit calculate on S.P
Then Profit = 20% of 3600 = 720
When Profit calculate on CP = (x)
x + x/5 = 3600
x = 3000
Profit = 600
Required difference = Rs. 120

Explanation: Let quantity of Desi ghee = 100 litre
Then quantity of Vanaspati Ghee mixed = 25 litre
Let cost price of one litre Desi ghee = Rs.10
Let cost price of one litre Vanaspati Ghee = Rs.5
Total cost price = 100 × 10 + 25 × 5 = 1125
Total selling price = (100 + 25)×10 = 1250
Profit = 1250 - 1125 = 125
Net profit percentage
(125×100)/1125 = 100/9 = 11 1/9%

Explanation: Simple Interest = P×R× T/100
(2000×4×3)/100 = Rs.240

Explanation:

Explanation: a + b + c = 6
a2+b2+c2 = 14
a3+b3+c3 = 36
Put value as
a=1, b=2,c=3
1+2+3 = 6
1+4+9 = 14
1+8+27 = 36
∴ abc= 1×2×3 = 6

Explanation:

Explanation: Ratio of Speed  9 : 8 and Time  8 : 9
1 = 20
7 = 8 X 20 = 160 min
= 2 hour 40 minutes

Explanation: 1/A = 1/20 and
1/B + 1/C = 1/8 (Given)
1/A + 1/B + 1/C = 1/8 + 1/20 = 7/40
In 40 hours, working together they will complete 7 products.
Thus in 160 hours they will complete 28 products

Explanation: Total weight of 20 student = 20 × 44 = 880
Total weight of 10 student = 10 × 38 = 380
Average weights of all the students = (880 + 380)/30 = 1260/30 = 42 kg

Explanation: Ratio of weights of B : A : C = 9×1 : 5×1 : 5×3 = 9 : 5 : 15
∴ 9x + 5x + 15x + 15 = 189 ∴ x = 6, Present weight of A = 5 × 6= 30kgs

Explanation: Ratio of their incomes is X : Y : Z = 7/20 : 6/15 : 19/25 = 35 : 40 : 76
Income of Y = 40/151 × 1812 = Rs.480

Explanation: Let the roots of the quadratic equation be x and 3x.
Sum of roots = - (-12) = 12
=a + 3a = 4a = 12 => a = 3
Product of the roots= 3a2 = 3(3)2 = 27

Explanation:

Explanation:

Explanation: Since ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
∴    ∠BCD + ∠BAD = 180°
∠BCD + 70° = 180°
∠BCD = 110°
∴ In ∆ABCD we have
∠CBD + ∠BCD+∠BDC = 180°
30°+110°+∠BDC = 180°
∠BDC = 40°
In ∆ABD, ∠ ABD = 180° - (90° + 70°)
∠ABD = 20°

Explanation:

Explanation: Maximum value of sinθ + cosθ = √a2+b2
So, maximum value = √242+72
=√625 = 25

Explanation: tan2θ.tan4θ = 1
tan2θ = 1/tan4θ
tan2θ = cot4 θ
tan2θ = tan(90 - 4θ)
2θ = 90 - 4θ
6θ = 90
3θ = 45
tan3θ.tan45 = 1

Explanation:

Explanation: 110/90 × 100 = 122 2/9

Explanation: (85 - 35)/360 × 24 = 3hours 20min

Explanation: 40/360 × 100 = 11 1/9%

Explanation: If the time spends in school is equal to that of spent in sleeping, then angle of sleeping is increased by 20 degrees. Hence, his time of games is decreased by 20degrees.
= 20/35 × 100 = 57 1/7%

Explanation: 3/4 × 40/360 × 24 = 2 hours
