### Quantitative Analysis

**What is the sum of two consecutive odd numbers, the difference of whose squares is 56?**.- 30
- 28
- 34
- 32

**Answer:****28****Explanation:**Let the no. be x and (x +2).

Then (x +2)2 – x2 = 56

4x + 4 = 56

x + 1 = 14

x = 13

Sum of numbers = x + (x +2) = 28**Express 252 as a product of primes.**- 2 * 2 * 3 * 3 * 7
- 3* 3 * 3 * 3 * 7
- 2 * 2 * 2* 3 * 7
- 2 * 3 * 3 * 3 * 7

**Answer:****2 * 2 * 3 * 3 * 7****Two numbers are in the ratio 3 : 5. If their L.C.M. is 75. what is sum of the numbers?**- 25
- 45
- 40
- 50

**Answer:****40****Explanation:**1st number = 3x

2nd number =5x

LCM of 3x and 5x is 15x

=> 15x = 75

=> x = 5

sum = 15+25 =40**A person employed a group of 20 men for a construction job. These 20 men working 8 hours a day can complete the job in 28 days. The work started on time but after 18 days, it was observed that two-thirds of the work was still pending. To avoid penalty and complete the work on time, the employer had to employ more men and also increase the working hours to 9 hours a day. Find the additional number of men employed if the efficiency of all men is the same.**- 40
- 44
- 64
- 80

**Answer:****44****Explanation:**Let the total work be 3 units and additional men employed after 18 days be ‘x’.

=> Work done in first 18 days by 20 men working 8 hours a day = (1/3) x 3 = 1 unit

=> Work done in last 10 days by (20 + x) men working 9 hours a day = (2/3) x 3 = 2 unit

Here, we need to apply the formula**M**, where_{1}D_{1}H_{1}E_{1}/ W_{1}= M_{2}D_{2}H_{2}E_{2}/ W_{2}

M_{1}= 20 men

D_{1}= 18 days

H_{1}= 8 hours/day

W_{1}= 1 unit

E_{1}= E_{2}= Efficiency of each man

M_{2}= (20 + x) men

D_{2}= 10 days

H_{2}= 9 hours/day

W_{2}= 2 unit

So, we have

20 x 18 x 8 / 1 = (20 + x) x 10 x 9 / 2

=> x + 20 = 64

=> x = 44

Therefore, additional men employed = 44**Three pipes A, B and C were opened to fill a tank. Working alone, A, B and C require 10, 15 and 20 hours respectively. A was opened at 7 AM, B at 8 AM and C at 9 AM. At what time the tank would be completely filled, given that pipe C can only work for 3 hours at a stretch, and needs 1-hour standing time to work again.**- 12 : 00 PM
- 12 : 30 PM
- 1 : 00 PM
- 1 : 30 PM

**Answer:****12 : 30 PM****Explanation:**Let the capacity of the tank be LCM (10, 15, 20) = 60

=> Efficiency of pipe A = 60 / 10 = 6 units / hour

=> Efficiency of pipe B = 60 / 15 = 4 units / hour

=> Efficiency of pipe C = 60 / 20 = 3 units / hour

=> Combined efficiency of all three pipes = 13 units / hour

Till 9 AM, A works for 2 hours and B work for 1 hour.

=> Tank filled in 2 hours by A = 12 units

=> Tank filled in 1 hour by B = 4 units

=> Tank filled till 9 AM = 16 units

=> Tank still empty = 60 – 16 = 44 units

Now, all three pipes work for 3 hours with the efficiency of 13 units / hour.

=> Tank filled in 3 more hours = 39 units

=> Tank filled till 12 PM = 16 + 39 units = 55 units

=> Tank empty = 60 – 55 = 5 units

Now, C is closed for 1 hour and these remaining 5 units would be filled by A and B working together with the efficiency 10 units / hour.

=> Time taken to fill these remaining 5 units = 5 / 10 = 0.5 hours

Therefore, time at which the tank will be completely filled = 12 PM + 0.5 hours = 12 : 30 PM**Rajdhani Express halts for 3 minutes every time it covers a distance of 75 km. If the train runs at a speed of 100 km/h and the destination is 600 km away from the source, find out the time taken to reach the destination station from the source station.**- 6 h 21 min
- 6 h 22 min
- 6 h 23 min
- 6 h 24 min

**Answer:****6 h 21 min****Explanation:**Since the train runs at a speed of 100 km/h, the time taken to cover 600 km = 600/100 = 6 h.

Number of times the train halts = 600/75 – 1 = 7.

Since the train halts for 3 minutes at each stop, the time spent waiting = 7 * 3 = 21 min.

Therefore, total time taken = 6 h 21 min.**A train crosses a pole in 20 sec. If the length of train is 500 meters, what is the speed of the train?**- 27 m/s
- 20 m/s
- 25 m/s
- 30 m/s

**Answer:****25 m/s****Explanation:**V = 500/20 = 25 m/s

**Felix spends 66.66% of his salary and saves Rs 1200 every month. Calculate his monthly expenditure in Rupees.**- Rs 2402
- Rs 2400
- Rs 2401
- Rs 2405

**Answer:****Rs 2400****Explanation:**Let Felix’s monthly salary be Rs x. Then,

(100 – 66.66)% of x = Rs 1200

=> 33.33 % of x = Rs 1200

=> x/3 = Rs 1200

=> x = Rs 3600.

Therefore, his monthly expenditure = 3600 – 1200 = Rs 2400.**Mark, Steve and Bill get their salaries in the ratio of 2:3:5. If their salaries are incremented by 15%, 10%, and 20% respectively, the new ratio of their salaries becomes:**- 8:16:15
- 23:33:60
- 33:30:20
- 21:25:32

**Answer:****23:33:60****Explanation:**Let their old salaries be 2a, 3a, 5a respectively.

Then, their new salaries become:

115% of 2a = 2a x 1.15 = 2.3a

110% of 3a = 3a x 1.10 = 3.3a

120% of 5a = 5a x 1.20 = 6a

So, the new ratio becomes

2.3a:3.3a:6a

Upon simplification, this becomes

23:33:60**The present ages of A, B and C are in proportions 4:5:9. Nine years ago, sum of their ages was 45 years. Find their present ages in years**- 15, 20, 35
- 20, 24, 36
- 20, 25, 45
- 16, 20, 36

**Answer:****16, 20, 36****Explanation:**Let the current ages of A, B and C be ax years, 5x years and 9x respectively.

Then (4x-9) + (5x-9) + (9x-9) =45

=> 18x – 27 = 45

=> 18x = 72

=> x = 4

Present ages of A, B and C are 4x = 16, 5x = 20, 9x = 36 respectively.
