Directions (1-3):

Quantity I:

Area of the rectangle = 16 * 10 = 160 Sq cm

320 = 20 * b

B = 320/20 = 16 cm

Quantity II:

14 cm

Quantity I > Quantity II

Quantity I:

15 years

Quantity II:

The ratio of ages of Priya and Manoj, after 3 years = 3 : 4

The ratio of ages of Manoj and Rahul, after 3 years = 5 : 7

The ratio of ages of Priya, Manoj and Rahul, after 3 years = 15 : 20 : 28

63’s = 54 + 9

63’s = 63

1’s = 1

Present age of Manoj = 20’s – 3 = 20 – 3 = 17 years

Quantity II > Quantity I

Short cut:

The average of consecutive numbers/odd numbers/even numbers always will be the middle numbers.

For example,

The average of 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 will be 5 (middle number)

The average of 1, 3, 5, 7 will be (3 + 5)/2 = 4

Here the middle number will be 19. So the five consecutive odd numbers will be,

15, 17, 19, 21, 23

Required difference = (17*21) – (15*19) = 357 – 285 = 72

Quantity I:

Let assume the first number of the consecutive number be ‘a’.

Then the consecutive numbers are a, a + 2, a + 4, a + 6, a + 8

Average of these numbers = (a + a + 2 + a + 4 + a + 6 + a + 8)/5

=> (5a + 20)/5 = a + 4

Given that,

a + 4 = 19

a = 15

Then

The series = 15, 17, 19, 21, 23

Then

N1 * N3 = 15 * 19 = 285

N2 * N4 = 17 * 21 = 357

Required difference = 357 – 285 = 72

Quantity II:

72

Quantity I = Quantity II

The share of P, Q and R,

= > [5*5 + 5*(5/7)*7] : [7*5 + 14*7] : [9*5 + 9*(2/3)*7]

= > [25 + 25] : [35 + 98] : [45 + 42]

= > 50 : 133 : 87

270’s = 99450

1’s = 368 1/3

The share of R = 87’s = Rs. 32045

Shortcut:

Percentage change in area of rectangle = x + y +xy/100

=> 25 – 20 – 25 *20/100 = 0

Let the length and breadth of the rectangle is 10 cm and 10cm,

Previous area = 10 * 10 = 100

New length = 10 * 125/100 = 12.5

New breadth = 10 * 80/100 = 8

New area= 12.5 * 8 = 100

No change in the area of the rectangle

Directions (6-10):

Total number of officers working in SBI in the year 2014

= > 32000 * (5/16) = 10000

Total number of clerk working in SBI in the year 2017

= > 21000 * (5/7) = 15000

Required % = (10000/15000)*100 = 66 2/3 %

The average number of clerk working in SBI in the year 2014, 2015 and 2016 together

= > [(32000*(11/16) + 36000*(3/4) + 25000*(4/5)]/3

= > [22000 + 27000 + 20000]/3

= > 23000

The total number of male officers working in SBI in the year 2015

= > 36000*(1/4)*(56/100) = 5040

The total number of female clerk working in SBI in the year 2015

= > 36000*(3/4)*(38/100) = 10260

Required difference = 10260 – 5040 = 5220

The total number of clerks working in SBI in the year 2016

= > 25000*(4/5) = 20000

The total number of officers working in SBI in the year 2013

= > 28000*(2/7) = 8000

Required ratio = 20000 : 8000 = 5 : 2

Total employees working in SBI in the year 2013 and 2015 together

= > 28000 + 36000 = 64000

Total employees working in SBI in the year 2014 and 2016 together

= > 32000 + 25000 = 57000

Required % = (64000/57000)*100 = 112.28 % = 112 %
