To get the proper idea of question paper a candidate has to be focused on previous years question papers. Here we provide SBI clerk mains previous years question paper 2020 of Quantitative Aptitude section.

Direction (1 – 5) : In an examination, six subjects – S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, and S6 have equal maximum marks. The number of marks scored by one particular candidate in subject S1 is 20% less than his marks in subject S6. The ratio of marks scored by the same candidate in subject S2 to that in S3 is 4:5 and that in S4 to S5 is 3:4. The number of marks scored by this candidate in subject S5 is 25% more than that of S6. He scored 65 marks in the subject S3. He scored 436/9% in the examination and the average of marks scored by him in all the subjects is 218/3.

Solution (1-5) :

Let marks scored in subject S6 = P

Marks scored in subject S1 = P × (80/100) = 4P/5

Marks scored in subject S5 = P × (125/100)= 5P/4

Ratio of marks in subject S2 and S3 = 4 : 5

Ratio of marks in subject S4 and S5 = 3 : 4

Here, 4 unit = 5P/4

=> 3 unit = (5P/4) × (3/4) = 15P/16

Marks scored in subject S4 = 15P/16

Marks scored in subject S3 = 65 ( 5 unit)

5 unit = 65

=> 4 unit = 52

Marks scored in subject S2 = 52

Total marks scored in all subjects together = (218/3) × 6 = 436

Now,

S1 + S2 + S3 + S4 + S5 + S6 = 436

=> 4P/5 + 52 + 65 + 15P/16 + 5P/4 + P = 436

=> (64P+75P+100P+80P)/80 = 436 – 117

=> 319P = 319 × 80

=> P = 80

Marks scored in subject S6 = 80

Marks scored in subject S5 = 5P/4 = 100

Marks scored in subject S4 = 15P/16 = 75

Marks scored in subject S3 = 65

Marks scored in subject S2 = 52

Marks scored in subject S1 = 4P/5 = 64

The candidate scored marks = 436/9 %

436/9 % = 436

=> 100% = 436 × (9/436) × 100 = 900

∴ Total marks = 900

Que 6.  A man spends 15%, 20% & 25% of his monthly income on mutual funds, travelling & medicines respectively and remaining of the Income on households. If the difference between expenditures on households & mutual funds is Rs. 16,800 then calculate his monthly income.

A) Rs. 55,300
B) Rs. 58,400
C) Rs. 67,200
D) Rs. 75,200
E) Rs. 62,500

Explanation :

Let Total income = 100 %

Spend on household = 100 – (15+20+25) = 40 %

According to question,

40% – 15% = 16800

=> 25% = 16800

=> 100% = 16800 × (100/25)

=> 100% = 67200

His monthly income = Rs. 67,200

Here the correct option is C.

Que 7. A man has a total of Rs. 5450 in Rs 10, Rs. 20, and Rs. 50 denomination notes. If ratio of number of Rs. 10 notes to Rs. 50 notes is 19:6 and number of notes of Rs. 50 denomination is 80% less than Rs. 20 notes, then find the total value of Rs. 20 notes.

A) Rs. 4500
B) Rs. 3000
C) Rs. 1500
D) Rs. 950
E) Rs. 900

Explanation :

Let the number of notes of Rs.10 and Rs.50 be 19x and 6x respectively.

Number of Rs.20 notes = 6x * (100/20) = 30x

Total value of Rs.10 notes = 19x * 10 =Rs.190x

Total value of Rs.20 notes = 30x * 20 =Rs.600x

Total value of Rs.50 notes = 6x * 50 = Rs.300x

According to question,

190x + 600x + 300x = 5450

=> 1090x = 5450

=> x = 5450/1090

=> x = 5

Now, 600x = 600 * 5 =Rs.3000

Total value of Rs. 20 notes is Rs. 3000

Here the correct option is B.

Que 8.  Pipe A takes 10 hours more than Pipe B to fill a tank. Pipe C(which is equally efficient as Pipe A and Pipe B together), fills the same tank in 12 hours. In how many hours will Pipe A, Pipe B and Pipe C fill the tank if Pipe A is accompanied by B and C on alternate hours.

A) 20 hours
B) 30 hours
C) 10 hours
D)  5 hours
E) None of these

Explanation :

Let pipe B can fill the tank in X hours

Pipe A can fill the tank in (X + 10) hours

Pipe (A+B) together fill the tank in hours = 1/X + 1/(X+10)

Pipe C fill the tank in 1 hour = 1/12

As the efficiency of pipe C is equal to Pipe A and Pipe B together, so

1/X + 1/(X+10) = 1/12

=> (X + X + 10)/X(X+10) = 1/12

=> X² + 10X = 24X + 120

=> X² – 14X – 120 = 0

=> X² – 20X + 6X – 120 = 0

=> (X – 20) (X + 6) = 0

=> X = 20, -6

Time can’t be negative so X = 20 is only acceptable.

Time taken by A = (20+10) = 30 hours

Time taken by B = 20 hours

Time taken by C = 12 hours

LCM of 30, 20, 12 = 60  (total capacity)

Pipe A’s efficiency = 60/30 = 2

Pipe B’s efficiency = 60/20 = 3

Pipe C’s efficiency = 60/12 = 5

(A+B)’s together efficiency = (2+3) = 5

(A+C)’s together efficiency = (2+5) = 7

Tank fill in 2 hour = (5 + 7) = 12

Tank fill in 1 hour = 12/2 = 6

Required time taken to fill the tank = 60/6 = 10

Time taken by Pipe A, B and C to fill the tank alternatively in 10 hours.

Here the correct option is C.

Que 9.  A and B started a business with some amount ratio of 2:1. After some months they double their share and after 2 months, B leaves the business and C joined the business with an amount Rs.10000. After 4 months of joining, C doubles his money, and B comes back to the business with his initial principal Rs. 2000. At the end of the year, it is seen that the share of A and C are the same. After how many months A and B double their amount?

A) 3 Months
B) 4 Months
C) 2 Months
D) 6 months
E) None of these

Explanation :

Initial investment of B = 2000

Ratio of investment of A and B = 2 : 1

Investment of B = (2×2000) = 4000

Let after P month they double their investment.

After P month investment of A = 8000

Total share of A = (4000×P) + 8000 × (12-P)

After P months C joined with an investment of Rs.10000 and after 4 months C double his investment.

So, Total share of C = (10000 × 4) + 20000 × [12 – (P+2) – 4] = 40000 + 20000 × (6 – P)

According to question,

4000P + 8000×(12 – P) = 40000 + 20000× (6-P)

=> 4000P + 96,000 – 8000P = 40000 + 120000 – 20000P

=> 16000P = 64000

=> P = 4

After 4 months A and B double their amount.

Here the correct option is B.

After 4 months A and B double their amount.

Here the correct option is B.

After 4 months A and B double their amount.

Here the correct option is B.

Que 10.  A man sold his article at 35% gain. If he sold articles for Rs. 50 more, he would have gained 45%, If he wants a profit of 56% then what should be the marked price of the article if there is no discount offered?

A) Rs. 780
B) Rs. 886
C) Rs. 892
D) Rs. 986
E) Rs, 850

Explanation :

CP                   SP

100                 135

145

(145-135) unit = 50

=> 10 unit = 50

=> 100 Unit = 500

Cost price (CP) =Rs. 500

If there is no discount on marked price it means Marked price is equal to Selling price.

To get 56% profit ,

Selling price = 500 × (156/100) = 780

The mark price is Rs.780.

Here the correct option is A.

A) 350
B) 375
C) 400
D) 455
E) 505

Explanation :

x² – 12x + 36 = 0

=> (x – 6)² = 0

=> (x – 6) = 0

=> x = 6

Length of Side of P = 6 cm

Length of Side of A = (6+2) = 8 cm

Required number = (64 × 65 × 56)/8³  = 455

The number of cubes of type A can be made from the cuboid = 455

A) 16.5% less
B) 20% more
C) 25% less
D) 33.33% more
E) 42.45% less

Explanation :

y² + 21y – 46 = 0

=> y² + 23y – 2y – 46 = 0

=> (y + 23)(y – 2) = 0

=> y = 2, -23

Length can not be negative so y = -23 is not acceptable.

y = 2

Length of Q = 2

Length of B = (2+3) = 5 cm

z² – 10z + 25 = 0

=> (z – 5)² = 0

=> z – 5 = 0

=> z = 5

Length of R = 5 cm

Length of C = (5+4) = 9 cm

Average length of P, B and C = (6+5+9)/3 = 20/3

Average length of A, Q and R = (8+2+5)/3 = 5

Required percentage = {(20/3 – 5)/5}×100 = 33.33%

∴ The average length of side of cube P, B and C is 33.33% more than the average length of side of cube A, Q and R .

Here the correct option is D.

Que 13. What is the ratio of volume of cube A and P together to the volume of cube B and Q together?
A) 10 : 31
B) 100 : 11
C) 104 : 19
D) 19 : 104
E) 11 : 100

Explanation :

Volume of cube A = 6³ = 216 cm³

Volume of cube P = 8³ = 512 cm³

Volume of cube A and P together = (216 + 512)   = 728 cm³

Volume of cube Q = 2³ = 8 cm³

Volume of cube B = 5³ = 125 cm³

Volume of cube B and Q together = (125 + 8) = 133

Required ratio = 728 : 133 = 104 : 19

∴ The ratio of volume of cube A and P together to the volume of cube B and Q together is 104 : 19

Here the correct option is C.

Que 21. A can do a piece of work in x days, B can take 10 more days than A to complete the same work, and C can do the same work alone in 10 days. If A, B and C together can do 50% of the total work In 2(13/31) days, then find the value of x.
A) 12 days
B) 10 days
C) 15 days
D) 18 days
E) 9 days

Explanation :

A, B and C together can do 100%(total) work in 2×(75/31) = 150/31 days

(A, B and C)’s 1-day work = 31/150

Let A can complete the work in x days.

B can complete the work in (x + 10) days

C complete the work in 10 days

A’s 1 day work = 1/x

B’s 1 day work = 1/(x+10)

C’s 1-day work = 1/10

(A+B+C)’s 1 day work = 1/x + 1/(x+10) + 1/10

Now,

1/x + 1/(x+10) + 1/10 = 31/150

=> (x + 10 + x)/x(x+10) = (31-15)/150

=> (2x + 10)/(x² + 10x) = 8/75

=> 8x² + 80x = 150x + 750

=> 8x² – 70x – 750 = 0

=> 4x² – 35x – 375 = 0

=> 4x² – 60x + 25x – 375 = 0

=> (x – 15) (4x + 25) = 0

=> x = 15, – 25/4

Time can’t be negative so (-25/4) value is not acceptable.

x = 15

∴ The required value of x is 15 days.

Here the correct option is C.

Que 24.  In a family of 4 persons, A and B are husband and wife. C and D are daughter and son of A and B respectively. D’s age 8 years ago was 2 years. The ratio of the present ages of mother and daughter is 7:1. The sum of the present ages of A, B, and C is 80 years. At the time of the birth of C, the age of A was equal to the present age of B. Find the present age of A.
A) 30 years
B) 40 years
C) 60 years
D) 45 years
E) 50 years

Explanation :

Here A = Father, B = Mother , D = Son and C = Daughter

Present age of D = (2 + 8) = 10 years

B : C = 7 : 1

A + B + C = 80    ———-(1)

At the time of birth of C, A’s age = B’s present age   ——–(2)

Let the present age of mother (B) = 7x

present age of daughter ( C) = x

Now putting the values of B and C in equation (2), we get

A – x = 7x

=> A = 8x

Now putting the values of A,B and C in equation (1), we get

A + B + C = 80

=> 8x + 7x + x = 80

=> 16x = 80

=> x = 5

∴ Present age of A = 8 × 5 = 40 years.

Here the correct option is B.

Que 25.  The average weight of a class of 50 students is 80 kg. If two of the students with weight 40% & 50% of ‘x’ leave the class & two new students with weight ‘x’ & ‘x-10’ Join the class, then the average weight of the class Is Increased by 2 kg. Find the value of ‘x’?
A) 80
B) 110
C) 90
D) 120
E) 100

Explanation :

Total sum of weight = (80×50) = 4000 kgs

New average = (80 + 2) = 82

40% of x = (40/100) * x = .4x

50% of x = (50/100) * x = .5x

According to question,

82 = (4000 – .4x – .5x + x + x – 10)/50

=> 4100 = 3990 – 1.1x

=> 1.1x = 110

=> x = 100

∴ The required value of x = 100

Here the correct option is E.

Que 47. Find the Marked Price of Article A.

I. The Selling Price of Article A is 25% of the Selling Price of Article B.

II. The cost price of the Article A is Rs. 300. When a discount of 25% is given on the marked price of the Article, the loss incurred is 10%.

Explanation :

Statement I –

Let selling price of B = 100

Selling price of A = 25

Statement II –

Cost price of article A = 300

Loss = 10%

Selling price = 300 × (90/100) = 270

Let market price = P

Selling price = P × (75/100) = 3P/4

Now,  3P/4 = 270

=> P = 270 × (4/3)

=> P = 360

Market price of article A = Rs.360

Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.

Here the correct option is B.

Que 48. Find the average of five consecutive even numbers.

I. The sum of the first two numbers is 8 more than the fifth number.

Let five consecutive even numbers be X, (X+2), (X+4), (X+6), (X+8)

According to question,

X + (X+2) – (X+8) = 8

=> X = 8 + 6

=> X = 14

Five consecutive even numbers are = 14 , 16 , 18, 20, 22

Average of this numbers = (14+16+18+20+22)/5  = 90/5 = 18

Statement II –

4th number – 1st number = 12

∴ Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.

Here the correct option is A.

Que 49. The Average age of A, B, C, D, and E is 36 years. Find the age of C.

I. Age of A is 36 years and E is 4 years elder than B and 12 years smaller than D.

II. Age of B is 12 years less than C and E is 8 years elder than C.

Explanation :

Total age of Five people = (36×5) = 180

Statement I –

A = 36 years

E = B + 4

E = D – 12

Statement II –

B = C – 12

E = C + 8

From statement I and II ,

E = D – 12

=> C + 8 = D – 12

=> D = C + 20

Now, (A + B + C + D + E) = 180

=> 36 + (C – 12) + C + (C + 20) + (C + 8) = 180

=> 52 + 4C = 180

=> 4C = 180 – 52

=> C = 128/4

=> C = 32

Age of C = 32 years.
