Check here the solutions for the above Aptitude questions:
 Plan A (Simple interest) B (Simple interest) C Compounded annually) D(Compounded annually) Principle Rs.15,000 Rs.20,000 Rs.10,000 Rs.25,000 Term 42 months 30 months 24 months 12 months Interest rate 10% 7.5% 9% 12.50% Interest Rs.5250 Rs.3750 Rs.1881 Rs.3125
1).
Interest earned under default plan C = Rs.1881
Interest rate of plan A=10%
Interest earned under plan C at 10% p.a compounded annually = Rs.2100
Difference in interest earned = 2100 – 1881= Rs.219
2).
Original term is 12 and when it is tripled it becomes 36 months.
Interest on Rs.25,000@12.50p.a (Compounded annually) for 36 months is Rs.10,595.70
3).
Maturity amount of plan B = Rs.23,750
Rs.23,750 deposited for 2 years in plan A gives Rs.28,500 on maturity.
4).
Interest earned under plan C (Compounded annually) = Rs.1881
Interest earned underplan C (If the interest is not compounded) = Rs.1800
Ratio will be 1881:1800=209 : 200
5).
Investment of Rs.25,000 in plan D will earn Rs.6640.25 in 24 months.
Directions(6-10): Perimeter of a square= 4 ร length of its one side
Ladies: 41.67% of 240= 100m (each side is 25m and area is 625m2)
Gents: 33.33% of 240= 80m (each side is 20m and area is 400m2)
Kids: 25% of 240= 60m (each side is 15m and area is 225m2)
From the above data we can arrive create the following table.
 Bulb Type Distribution Ladies Gents Kids Total LED 1 per 5 m2 125 80 45 250 CFL 1 per 25 m2 25 16 9 50 Incandescent 1 per each 4m of perimeter 25 20 15 60

6).
Ratio between the areas of ladies, kids and gents sections is 625 : 225 : 400 = 25 : 9 :16
7).
Area of gents section – Area of kids section = 400 – 225=175m2
Furnishing charge is Rs.125/m2
Expense for furnishing extra 175 m2 = 175 ร 125= 21875
