**Answers:**

**Direction (1-5)**

**1). Answer a**

Total number of flights in SpiceJet = 2000

Number of National Flights in Vistara = 1250 × 60/100 = 750

Number of International Flights in Jet Airways = 3000 × 45/100 = 1350

Total = 750 + 1350 = 2100

Required percentage

= 2000/2100 × 100

= 95%

**2). Answer b**

Number of National Flights in IndiGo = 2500 × 60/100 = 1500

Number of National Flights in Jet Airways = 3000 × 55/100 = 1650

Number of International Flights in Vistara= 1250 × 40/100 = 500

Number of International Flights in AirAsia= 1000 × 12.5/100 = 125

Required average = 1/4 × (1500 + 1650 + 500 + 125)

= 1/4 × 3775

= 943.75

**3). Answer c**

Number of International Flights in SpiceJet = 2000 × 27.5/100 = 550

Number of International Flights in GoAir = 2250 × 30/100 = 675

Total = 1225

Number of National Flights in Vistara = 1250 × 60/100 = 750

Number of National Flights in AirAsia = 1000 × 87.5/100 = 875

Total = 1625

Required ratio = 1225: 1625

= 49: 65

**4). Answer d**

Number of National Flights in Spice Jet = 2000 × 72.5/100

= 1450

Number of National Flights in AirAsia = 1000 × 87.5/100

= 875

Total = (1450 + 875) = 2325

Required percentage = 2325/3000 ×100

= 77.5

**5). Answer e**

Number of National Flights in IndiGo = 2500 × 60/100

= 1500

Number of National Flights in GoAir = 2250 × 70/100

= 1575

Number of National Flights in Vistara = 1250 × 60/100

= 750

Total = 1500 + 1575 + 750

= 3825

**Direction (6-10)**

**6). Answer d**

18.05 x 8.99 – 52.02 =?

18 x9 – 52 =?

162 -52 =?

? = 110

**7). Answer b**

149.96 x 3.02 – 114.57 x 1.93 = ?

150 x3 -115 x2 = ?

450 – 230 = ?

? = 220

**8). Answer d**

45.04 ÷ 4.97 = ? ÷ 12.99

45 /5 = ?/13

9 x 13 = ?

? = 117

**9). Answer e**

135.594 ÷ 7.62 x 2.93 = 75.01% of ?

(136/8) x 3 = (75/100) × ?

17 x3 = (3/4) x ?

? = 68

**10). Answer d**

75.05% of (289.96 + 142.01) = ?^{2}

75/100 x (290 + 142 ) = ?^{2}

3/4 x432 = ?^{2}

3 x 108 = ?^{2}

324 = ?^{2}

? = √324

? =18

**11). Answer: (c)**

Consider M & N pipes opened together for x min

M——24min total work

N——-32min 96 units

Efficiency of M is 4

Efficiency of N is 3

7x+4(18-x) = 96

X = 8 minutes

**12). Answer: a**

2 Bananas 40 Rs

1 banana 20 Rs

(80/100)X = 20

X= 25

Original price for 1 banana = Rs. 25

**13). Answer: c**

Let x km be the distance

Time1 = x/24 hrs

While travelling at 25% faster speed

24 + 25% 24 = 30 kmph

Time2= x/30 hrs

Total time difference 9 minutes

x/24 – x/30= 9

x = 18km

**14). Answer: c**

Let total No. of employees be 100

(40 x 390 + 60 x 420)/100 = 408

**15). Answer b**

Income ratio of Raghu and Raju =5:4

Expense ratio of Raghu and Raju = 2:1

Given,

Raghu’s savings = 5x-2y=12000 — (1)

Raju’s savings = 4x-y=12000 — (2)

Simplify the above equation (1) and (2), we get x= 4000

Raju’s annual income = 16000*12=Rs.192000

**16). Answer e**

Area of 4 walls of a room

= 2(Length + Breadth) * Height

= 2(12 + 10)* 4 = 176m^{2}

Required cost = 176 x 12.6 = Rs.2217.60

**17). Answer a**

Total number of ball pens = n(S)

= 6 + 7 = 13

Required probability (6C2 x7C2)/ 13C4= (15x 21)/715 = 63/143

**18). Answer a**

Total work = 15 x 60 = 900 units

Remaining work = 900 – 12 x 45 = 360 units

Let x men be added to finish the remaining work in 8 days

Then, (12 + x) 8 = 360

Or, 8x = 360 – 96

x= 264/8 =33

**19). Answer: b**

Let’s assume that the required time = T years

Hence in 2nd case, (6336 – 4800) = (4800’8’T)/100

=> T = (1536’100)/(4800’8)

=> T = 4 years

Let’s suppose that the principal amount be Rs P in 1St case.

Hence, P + (P'((5’4)/100)) = 7200

=> 1.2P = 7200

=> P = Rs 6000

**20). Answer b**

Let the income of A and B be Rs 9n and 4n respectively and the expenditure of A and B be Rs 7m and 3m respectively.

Hence according to the question; 9n – 7m = 4000… (1)

Similarly; 4n – 3m = 2500… (2)

Solving (1) and (2) we will get; n = 5500, m = 6500

Hence income of A = 9n = Rs 49500, Income of B = 4n = Rs 22000

**Direction (21-25)**

**21). Answer e**

Passed students from IBPS Exam= 37500

Passed students from RRB Exam = 17500

Difference = 37500 – 17500

= 20000

**22). Answer d**

Passed Boys from IBPS Exam and SBI Exam

= 15000 + 17500

Passed Girls from RBI Exam and SSC Exam

= 35000 + 30000

% = 32500/65000 × 100 = 50%

**23). Answer b**

Passed Girls from RBI Exam = 35000

Passed Girls from All exams = 117500

Approximate % = 35000 / 117500 × 100 = 29.78% = 30%

**24). Answer c**

Average number of passed students in all Exams

Boys + Girls = Students

IBPS =15000 + 22500= 37500

SBI = 17500 + 20000= 37500

RBI = 27500 + 35000= 62500

SSC = 25000 + 30000= 55000

RRB = 10000 + 7500 = 17500

Total = 210000

Average = 210000/5

= 42000

**25). Answer a**

Ratio between passed all boys and all girls in all exams

= Boys: Girls

= 92500: 117500

= 37: 47
