Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 9

To find the angle between hour hand and minute hand, when minute hand is ahead of the hour hand. We use formula

= 30( 9 – 7) – (45/2)

= 60 – (45/2)

= (120 – 45)/2

= 75 / 2

= 37(1/2) Degree

Hence, the angle between the minute hand and hour hand at time 45 minutes past 7’O clock is 37(1/2) Degree

RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 19

A trader marks price of his goods 45% above the cost price and gives a discount of 20% on the marked price. What percentage of profit will the trader have?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 19

Discount% = (MP - SP)/MP × 100

SP = MP - (Discount%/100) × MP

Let the cost price be Rs. X

Marked price = X + (45/100) × X = 1.45X

Discount = 20%

SP = 1.45X - (20/100) × 1.45X = 1.16X

Profit% = (SP - CP)/CP × 100

Profit% = (1.16X - X)/X × 100 = 16%

Rohan sells two articles. The cost price of the first article is equal to the selling price of the second article. The first article is sold at a profit of 40% and the second article is sold at a loss of 40%. What is the ratio of the selling price of the first article to the cost price of the second article?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 30

Let cost price of First article be Rs. X

Profit % = 40%

So, Selling price = x + 40% of x = x + 0.4x = 1.4x = 7x/5

And, Selling price of second article = Rs. x

Loss % = 40%

Cost price = Selling price + loss % of cost price

⇒ (1 - loss%) cost price = selling price

⇒ (1 - 0.4)Cost price = x

⇒ 0.6 cost price = x

⇒ Cost price = x/0.6 = 5x/3

∴ Required ratio = (7x/5) ∶ (5x/3) = 21 ∶ 25

So, total boys in this row = 7 + 14 – 1 = 20.

RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 46

A man travelled a distance in 10 hours, the first half at 15 kmph and the rest at 5 kmph. Find the distance.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 46

Option ( c)  75  is correct.

:- Let total distance travelled =2x

We know, time = distance/speed

Therfore, T1= x/15

T2 = x/5

=>  T1+T2 = 10 hours

=> x/15 + x/ 5 = 10

By solving the equation,

x  = 37.5

Therefore, Total distance traveled =  2x

= 2*37.5 = 75 km.

Find the area of shaded trapezium if the area of the rectangle is 4800 cm2 and the area of ΔAPD is 300 cm2.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 63

Given,

Area of rectangle ABCD = 4800 cm2

⇒ 4800 = Length × breadth

⇒ AD = BC = 4800/80 = 60 cm

Area of ΔAPD = 300 cm2

As ΔAPD is right angled triangle –

⇒ Area of ΔAPD = 1/2 × AP × AD

⇒ 300 = 1/2 × AP × 60

⇒ AP = 10 cm

Then, BQ = 10cm

⇒ PQ = 80 – 10 – 10 = 60cm

Area of trapezium PQCD

= 1/2 × (sum of parallel side) × Distance between them

= 1/2 × (60 + 80) × 60

= 4200 cm2

Three containers A, B and C are having mixtures of milk and water in the ratio 1 : 5, 3 : 5 and 5 : 7, respectively. If the capacities of the containers are in the ratio 5 : 4 : 5, then find the ratio of the milk to the water if the mixtures of all the three containers are mixed together.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 65

⇒ Let the quantity be 5x, 4x and 5x litres respectively in the 3 containers.

⇒ Quantity of milk in 1st container = 5x x (x/6x) = 0.833x

⇒ Quantity of milk in 2nd container = 4x x (3x/8x) = 1.5x

⇒ Quantity of milk in 3rd container = 5x x (5x/6x) = 2.0833x

⇒ Total quantity of milk is = 0.833x + 1.5x + 2.0833x = 4.4166x litres

⇒ The amount of water in the mixture = 14x - 4.4166x = 9.5833x

⇒ Hence, the ratio of milk to water = 4.4166x/9.5833

∴ Ratio of milk to water = 53 : 115

The difference between simple interest and compound interest for a sum of money of Rs. 1500 is Rs 25.35 for 2 years. Find the rate of interest.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 1 (English) - Question 84

Given: t = 2 years

n = 1 [Compounded annually]

C.I. – S.I. = Rs. 25.35

p = Rs. 1500

Compound Interest (Net Amount) = p(1 + r/n)nt = p(1 + r)2 = p(1 + 2r + r2)

Simple Interest(Net Amount) = p(rt) + p = p(1 + 2r)

Difference = C.I. – S.I. = p(1 + 2r + r2 – 1 – 2r) = p(r2) = 25.35

⇒ 1500r2 = 25.35

⇒ r2 = 0.0169

⇒ r = √0.0169= 0.13 = 13%.

∴ the rate of interest is 13%.
