__Check Below for Detailed Solutions of the above Aptitude Questions__:

ย

1). Rameshโs monthly income = 642000/12 = Rs. 53,500

Now, expenditure on household goods

= 53500ร(1/5)= 10700

Remaining income = 53500-10700

= Rs.42800.

Again, expenditure on childrenโs school fees

= (3/8)ร 428000= Rs. 16050

Remaining monthly income= 42800-16050= Rs. 26750

Again, he denotes 12% of this to NGO

Donated amount [(26750ร12)/100]= Rs. 3210

Remaining amount = 26750-3210

= Rs. 23540.

**Answer: d)**

**ย**

2). CI= P {(1+r/100)

^{n}-1}Or, 5984=P {(I+20/100)

^{2}-1}Or, 5984=P {(6/5)

^{2}-1} = P {(36-25)/25}โดP=(5984ร25)/11 =544ร25 =Rs.13600

Now, SI =(Pรrรt)/100 =(13600ร9ร6)/100 =Rs.7344

**Answer: e)**

**ย**

3). Milk in vessel =(72/9)ร5 =40 litres

Water in vessel =(72/9)ร4 =32 litres

According to the question, milk in 18 litres mixture=18ร(5/9) =10 litres

New mixture=(72-18+10) =64litres

Now, milk in new mixture=40-10 =30 litres

Reqd percentage of milk in the mixture =(30/64) ร100 =46ร(7/8)%

**Answer: a)**

**ย**

4). Let the number be x.

Then, (x/2) +234 =5x

Or, 5x-x/2 =234

Or, 9x =234ร2

โดx=(234ร2)/9 =52

**Answer: b)**

**ย**

5). Reqd cost price

=[11200ร(84/100)ร(100/112)]

=100ร84 =Rs.8400

**Answer: c)**

**ย**

6).

New area =ฯ r

^{2ย }=[(22/7)ร35ร35] =3850m^{2}**Answer: a)**

**ย**

7). Let the length be 9x and the breadth be 7x

Then, 9xร7x =1008

Or,63x

^{2}=1008Or,x

^{2}=1008/63 =16โดx=4

Now, perimeter of the rectangle

=2(l+b) =2(9ร4+7ร4)

= 2(36+28) =2ร64 =128m

^{2}**Answer: e)**

**ย**

8). Downstream speed=(15.2ร60)/24

=912/24 =38 kmph

Speed of the stream

=2.5 kmph

ย โดSpeed of the boat = (38-2.5)

=35.5 kmph

Now upstream speed =35.5-2.5

=33 kmph

โดDistance covered in 18 minutes =(33/60)ร18 =9.9 km

**Answer: e)**

**ย**

9). Let the male population in the year 2013 be 6x and the female population that year be 7x.

ย Now, according to the question,

6xร(115/100) + 7xร(112/100) =5896

Or,6.9x + 7.84x =5896

Or,14.74x =5896

โดx=(5896/14.74) =400

Thus, the female population in 2014 =7.84ร400 =3136

**Answer :e)**

**ย**

10). Work efficiency of A to B =180:100 =9:5

When they work together they finish the work in 19ร2/7 days =135/7 days

Now, B alone can finish the work in (135/7 ร14/5) =54 days

**Answer: c)**

**ย**

**ย**ย
