Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 32

Given,

⇒ Principal = P = 25000

⇒ Rate = R = 5%

⇒ Time = N = 2 years

⇒ Compound interest = [P{1 + R/100}n] – P = [25000{1 + (5/100)}2] – 25000 = 27562.5 – 25000 = 2562.5

Now,

⇒ Principal = P = 25000

⇒ Rate = R = 10%

⇒ Time = N = 1

⇒ Compound interest = [25000{1 + (10/100)}] – 25000 = 27500 – 25000 = 2500

⇒ Total compound interest = 2500 + 2562.5 = Rs. 5062.5

A palm tree and a mango tree of same height stand on either side of lake which is 80 m wide. Angle of elevations from a point somewhere in the lake are 60° and 45° respectively. What is the height of the trees?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 36

From figure,

Let the height of Palm tree = AB = H units

⇒ Height of Mango tree = CD = H units

From figure,

⇒ PD = x units

⇒ BP = 80 – x units

Now, In triangle CPD,

⇒ tan 45° = CD/PD

⇒ 1 = H/X

⇒ H = X

Now, in triangle ABP,

⇒ tan 60° = AB/BP

⇒ √3 = H/(80 – X)

⇒ 80√3 – √3H = H

⇒ 138.56 = 2.732 H

⇒ H = 50.7 m

Fred starts from a point O. He turns North and walks 10 m. Then he turns right 90° and walks 5m. He then turns right 90° and walks 5 m. He then turns left 90° and walks 7 m.

Q. How far is Fred from his initial position?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 39

Note: For calculation purpose, various points are taken in the form of variables O, A, P, B, C and X.

We have to find the distance OX.

From the diagram we know that,

OA = 10 m

AB = 5 m

BC = 5 m

CX = 7 m

PC = AB = 5 m

PX = PC + CX = 12 m

AP = BC = 5 m

OP = OA – AP = 5 m

Using Pythagoras theorem in triangle OPX,

(OX)² = (OP)² + (PX)²

(OX)² = (5)² + (12)²

(OX)² = 25 + 144 = 169 m²

Hence OX = 13 m.

Hence, the distance between Fred’s initial position and the final position is 13 m.

⇒ Mean of the series = (9 + 13 + 15 + 8 + 6 + 11 + 7 + 3 + 10 + 1)/10 = 83/10 = 8.3

Now,

⇒ (Standard deviation)2 = {(92 + 132 + 152 + 82 + 62 + 112 + 72 + 32 + 10+ 1)/10} – 8.32 = 85.5 – 68.89 = 16.61

RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 48

The age of four family members is in the ratio 2 ∶ 3 ∶ 7 ∶ 8. If their average age is 25 years, find the difference between the age of the eldest and the youngest member of family.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 48

Let the age of 4 family members be ‘2x’, ‘3x’, ‘7x’ and ‘8x’ years

Now, average age = 25

⇒ (2x + 3x + 7x + 8x)/4 = 25

⇒ 20x = 100

⇒ x = 100/20 = 5

Hence,

⇒ Age of eldest member = 8x = 8(5) = 40 years

⇒ Age of youngest member = 2x = 2(5) = 10 years

∴ Required difference = 40 - 10 = 30 years

In the figure given below, OD is the perpendicular bisector of the chord AB. If the diameter of the circle is 20 cm and the length of chord AB is 16 cm, find the length of CD.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 56

In the figure given below,

As we know, the perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through the centre of the circle

⇒ OA = OB = OD = Radius of circle = 20/2 = 10 cm

⇒ AC = AB/2 = 16/2 = 8 cm

Now, applying Pythagoras theorem in ΔOCA,

⇒ OA2 = OC2 + AC2

⇒ 102 = OC2 + 82

⇒ OC2 = 100 – 64

⇒ OC = √36 = 6 cm

∴ CD = OD – OC = 10 – 6 = 4 cm

Two years ago, the population of a village was 62500. If in two years, the population of the village increased by 24525, what is the rate of increase in population per year, if the rate of increase is same for both years?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 59

Let the rate of increase be ‘R%’

Population of village two years ago = 62500

Present population of village = 62500 + 24525 = 87025

∵ Population after n years = Population n years ago × (1 + Rate/100)n

Putting n = 2,

⇒ 87025 = 62500 × (1 + R/100)2

⇒ 1.3924 = (1 + R/100)2

⇒ √1.3924 = (1 + R/100)

⇒ 1.18 = 1 + R/100

⇒ R = 0.18 × 100 = 18%

∴ Rate of increase of population per year = 18%

A dishonest man marks up the price of goods by 25% and gives discount of 10%. But while selling he cheated by 150 gm per kg. Find percentage profit.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 61

Let CP of 1000 gm be Rs. 100

⇒ Marked price = 100 + 25% of 100 = 125

⇒ Discount = 10%

⇒ Selling Price of 850 gm = 125 – {125 × (10/100)} = 112.5

Now,

⇒ CP of 850gm = Rs. 85

⇒ Profit = Rs. (112.5 – 85) = Rs. 27.5

⇒ Profit percentage = (27.5/85) × 100 = 32.35%

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 80

⇒ Quantity of bottle = 1 litre = 1000 ml

After 60% of the mixture is poured out,

⇒ Quantity of mixture remaining in bottle = 40% of 1000 = 400 ml

⇒ Ratio of milk-water in the initial mixture = 7∶ 3

⇒ Quantity of milk in bottle = (7/10) × 400 = 280 ml

⇒ Quantity of water in bottle = (3/10) × 400 = 120 ml

Now,

⇒ Quantity of bottle to be filled = 1000 – 400 = 600 ml

⇒ Quantity of honey filled = 100 ml

⇒ Quantity of milk filled = 200 ml

⇒ Quantity of water filled = 600 – 100 – 200 = 300 ml

⇒ Quantity of milk in final mixture = 280 + 200 = 480 ml

⇒ Quantity of water in final mixture = 120 + 300 = 420 ml

⇒ Ratio of milk and water in final mixture = 480 ∶ 420 = 8 ∶ 7

It is given that,

P = 3, Q = 14, R = 23, S = 4,T = 2, U = 13 and V = 2.

Given expression : (P3 + Q - R × S ÷ T + U □ V) = 164.

→ (33 + 14 – 23 × 4 ÷ 2 + 13 □ 2) = 164

→ (27 + 14 – 23 × 4 ÷ 2 + 13 □ 2) = 164

→ (27 + 14 – 23 × 2 + 13 □ 2) = 164

→ (27 + 14 – 46 + 13 □ 2) = 164

→ (– 5 + 13 □ 2) = 164

→ (13 □ 2) = 164 + 5 = 169

If [{b/(a – b)} + {a/(a + b)} + {2ab/(a2 – b2)}] = 8, find the value of a/b.

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 93

Given,

⇒ [{b/(a – b)} + {a/(a + b)} + {2ab/(a2 – b2)}] = 8

We know that, (a + b)(a – b) = (a2 – b2)

⇒ {b(a + b) + a(a – b) + 2ab} / (a2 – b2) = 8

⇒ (ab + b2 + a2 – ab + 2ab) / (a2 – b2) = 8

⇒ (a2 + b2 + 2ab) / (a2 – b2) = 8

As, (a + b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab

⇒ (a + b)/ {(a + b)(a – b)} = 8

⇒ (a + b) / (a – b) = 8

⇒ a + b = 8a – 8b

⇒ 8a – a = b + 8b

⇒ 7a = 9b

∴ a/b = 9/7

RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 97

Directions: In the following questions are to be based on the details given below :

In a city of 300 people, 180 speak French. 20 people speak only Italian while 190 people don’t know Italian at all. 110 people speak exactly two languages and 60 people know both English and French. 30 people know only French and Italian.

Q. Which language is spoken by most people?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 97

We represent the whole scenario as a Venn diagram.

Now according to the question:

Total population = a + b + c + d + e + f + g = 300.

People who speak French = a + b + d + e = 180.

People who only speak Italian = c = 20.

People who don’t know Italian = a + d + g = 190. Hence people who know Italian = b + c + e + f = 300 - 190 = 110.

People who speak exactly two languages = b + d + f = 110.

People who know both French and English = d + e = 60.

People who know only French and Italian = b = 30.

Since b + c + e + f = 110 and c = 20, then b + e + f = 90.

Now, b + e + f = 90 and b + d + f = 110. Subtracting, we get d - e = 20. Also, d + e = 60. Solving, we get d = 40 and e = 20.

Now, b = 30, d = 40, e = 20 and a + b + d + e = 180. Solving, we get a = 90.

Now b + d + f = 110, b = 30 and d = 40, hence f = 40.

Finally, g = 300 – (a + b + c + d + e + f) = 60.

Hence French is spoken by (a + b + d + e) = 180 people.

English is spoken by (d + e + f + g) = 160 people.

Italian is spoken by 110 people.

Hence French is the most popular.

RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 98

Directions: In the following questions are to be based on the details given below :

In a city of 300 people, 180 speak French. 20 people speak only Italian while 190 people don’t know Italian at all. 110 people speak exactly two languages and 60 people know both English and French. 30 people know only French and Italian.

Q. How many people speak all three languages?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 98

We represent the whole scenario as a Venn diagram.

Now according to the question:

Total population = a + b + c + d + e + f + g = 300.

People who speak French = a + b + d + e = 180.

People who only speak Italian = c = 20.

People who don’t know Italian = a + d + g = 190. Hence people who know Italian = b + c + e + f = 300 - 190 = 110.

People who speak exactly two languages = b + d + f = 110.

People who know both French and English = d + e = 60.

People who know only French and Italian = b = 30.

Since b + c + e + f = 110 and c = 20, then b + e + f = 90.

Now, b + e + f = 90 and b + d + f = 110. Subtracting, we get d - e = 20. Also, d + e = 60. Solving, we get d = 40 and e = 20.

Now, b = 30, d = 40, e = 20 and a + b + d + e = 180. Solving, we get a = 90.

Now b + d + f = 110, b = 30 and d = 40, hence f = 40.

Finally, g = 300 – (a + b + c + d + e + f) = 60.

Hence French is spoken by (a + b + d + e) = 180 people.

English is spoken by (d + e + f + g) = 160 people.

Italian is spoken by 110 people.

Hence 20 people speak all three languages.

RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 99

Directions: In the following questions are to be based on the details given below :

In a city of 300 people, 180 speak French. 20 people speak only Italian while 190 people don’t know Italian at all. 110 people speak exactly two languages and 60 people know both English and French. 30 people know only French and Italian.

Q. How many people know English but no other language?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 99

We represent the whole scenario as a Venn diagram.

Now according to the question, we need to find g:

Total population = a + b + c + d + e + f + g = 300.

People who speak French = a + b + d + e = 180.

People who only speak Italian = c = 20.

People who don’t know Italian = 190. Hence people who know Italian = b + c + e + f = 300 - 190 = 110.

People who speak exactly two languages = b + d + f = 110.

People who know both French and English = d + e = 60.

People who know only French and Italian = b = 30.

Since b + c + e + f = 110 and c = 20, then b + e + f = 90.

Now, b + e + f = 90 and b + d + f = 110. Subtracting, we get d - e = 20. Also, d + e = 60. Solving, we get d = 40 and e = 20.

Now, b = 30, d = 40, e = 20 and a + b + d + e = 180. Solving, we get a = 90.

Now b + d + f = 110, b = 30 and d = 40, hence f = 40.

Finally, g = 300 – (a + b + c + d + e + f) = 60.

Hence English alone is spoken by 60 people.

Directions: In the following questions are to be based on the details given below :

In a city of 300 people, 180 speak French. 20 people speak only Italian while 190 people don’t know Italian at all. 110 people speak exactly two languages and 60 people know both English and French. 30 people know only French and Italian.

Q. How many people know French but no other language?

Detailed Solution for RRB NTPC Mock Test - 15 (English) - Question 100

We represent the whole scenario as a Venn diagram.

Now according to the question, we need to find a :

Total population = a + b + c + d + e + f + g = 300.

People who speak French = a + b + d + e = 180.

People who only speak Italian = c = 20.

People who don’t know Italian = 190. Hence people who know Italian = b + c + e + f = 300 - 190 = 110.

People who speak exactly two languages = b + d + f = 110.

People who know both French and English = d + e = 60.

People who know only French and Italian = b = 30.

Since b + c + e + f = 110 and c = 20, then b + e + f = 90.

Now, b + e + f = 90 and b + d + f = 110. Subtracting, we get d - e = 20. Also, d + e = 60. Solving, we get d = 40 and e = 20.

Now, b = 30, d = 40, e = 20 and a + b + d + e = 180. Solving, we get a = 90.

Hence French alone is spoken by 90 people.
