QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE
Directions (1 – 5): In the following questions two equations numbered I and II are given. You have to solve both the equations and choose the correct option:
a) x> y
b) x ≥ y
c) x< y
d) x ≤ y
e) x = y or the relationship cannot be determined
1).  I. 9x2 – 9x + 2 = 0; II. 20y2 + 1 = 9y
2).  I. x2 = x + 12; II. y2 + 7y + 12 = 0
3). I. 2x2 + 5x + 2 = 0; II. 4y2 = 1
4). 12x2 – 17x + 6 = 0; II. 2y2 – 17y + 35 = 0
5). x2 + 44 = 64.25; II. y = √20.25

Solutions:
1. A)
From I: (3x – 1)(3x – 2) = 0 => x = 1/3, 2/3
From II: (4y – 1) (5y – 1) = 0 => y = ¼, 1/5
Hence x > y
2. B)
From I: (x + 3) (x – 4) = 0 => x = -3, 4
From II (y + 3) (y + 4) = 0 => y = -3, -4
Hence x ≥ y
3. D)
From I: (2x + 1)(x + 2) = 0 => x = -1/2, -2
From II: y = ±1/2
Hence x ≤ y
4. C)
From I: (3x – 2)(4x – 3) = 0 => x = 2/, ¾
From II: (y – 5)(2y – 7) = 0 => y = 5, 7/2
Hence x < y
5. D)
From I: x2 = 20.25 => x = ± 4.5
From II: y = 4.5
Hence x ≤ y
