QUESTION: 25

A certain product C is made of two ingredients A and B in the ratio of 2 : 5. The price of A is three times that of B. The overall cost of C is Rs. 5.20 per kg including labour charges of 80 paisa per kg. Find the cost of B per kg ? 

Solution:

Let the price of B per kg be Rs. X. Then,
the price of A per kg = Rs. 3X
1kg of C contains 2/7 kg of A and 5/7 kg of B
Price of 1 kg of C = (2/7) x 3X + (5/7)X = (11/7)X
By the given condition, 11X/7
= 5.20 - 0.80
= Rs. 4.40
⇒ X = 4.40 x (7/11) = Rs. 2.80
Hence the price of B per kg = Rs. 2.80.

In the given questions, two quantities are given, one as ‘Quantity I’ and another as ‘Quantity II’. You have to determine relationship between two quantities and choose the appropriate option:
Quantity I - Volume of a solid sphere is 4851 m³ then find radius of sphere.
Quantity II - Radius of a cylinder is 18 m and volume of cylinder is 10,692 m³. Find height of cylinder. 

Solution:

QUESTION: 32

In the given questions, two quantities are given, one as ‘Quantity I’ and another as ‘Quantity II’. You have to determine relationship between two quantities and choose the appropriate option:

Four year hence average age of A, B & C will be 42 years, ratio between present age of A to C is 6 : 5.
Quantity I - If age of B is 12 years more than A, then find age of C.
Quantity II – 32 years 

Solution:

Total age of A, B and C = 42 x 3 - 4 x 3 = 114 year:
Let age of A & C be 6x & 5x years respectively.
Quantity I—
Age of B = (6x + 12) years
ATQ,
6x + Sx + (6x + 12) = 114
17x = 102
x = 6 year
Age of C = 6 x 5 = 30 years 
Quantity II—
32 year
So, Quantity I < Quantity II 

QUESTION: 33

In the given questions, two quantities are given, one as ‘Quantity I’ and another as ‘Quantity II’. You have to determine relationship between two quantities and choose the appropriate option:

A train moves at the speed of 108 km/hr, passes a platform and a bridge in 15 sec and 18 sec respectively. If the length of platform is 50% of length of bridge.
Quantity I – Find length of train.
​Quantity II – 300 meter 

Solution:

Let's length of train is X meter and length of
bridge and platform are 2L and L meter respectively
Speed of train
= 30 m/s
When train passed the bridge
Distance covered = X + 2L
X + 2L = 540 ...(i)
When train passes the platform
Distance covered = X + L
X + L = 450 ...(ii)
From (i) and (ii)
L = 90 meter
Quantity I - X = 450 - 90 = 360 meter
Quantity II - 300 meter
So, Quantity I > Quantity II

QUESTION: 34

QUESTION: 35

In the given questions, two quantities are given, one as ‘Quantity I’ and another as ‘Quantity II’. You have to determine relationship between two quantities and choose the appropriate option:

A is 20% more efficient than B, who complete the work alone in 20 days. A work for the first two days alone
Quantity I – Find in how many days remaining work will be completed if both work together.
​Quantity II – 10 days 

Solution:

A:B = 120:100
= 6:5
Let A & B one day work be 6x units &
Sx units respectively
Total work = 20 x Sx = 100x units
Remaining work =100x - 6x x 2
= 88x units
Quantity I
Required days  
= 8 days
Quantity II- 10 days
So, Quantity I < Quantity II

QUESTION: 41

In the following questions, a sentence is divided into five parts with last part of each sentence is highlighted in underline suggesting the grammatically correct part of the sentence. Out of the four other parts, choose the part of the sentence which contains grammatical or contextual error in it. If the given sentence is both grammatically correct and contextually meaningful, choose option (E) i.e., “No error” as your answer.

Q. Public sector banks (A)/ accounts (B)/for about 85% of the cumulative amount involved(C)/ in frauds till March 31, 2018,(D)/ while private banks accounted for a little over 10%(E). 

Solution:

The error lies in the second part i.e., part (B) of the sentence. Here in the sentence a comparison is done between the PSBs and private banks on the basis of cumulative amount involved in fraud and that too till some past time, so the tense used here should be past instead of present indefinite, the word accounts should be replaced by accounted. Also, it creates an error of subject-verb agreement, since the noun [Public sector banks] associated to the verb (accounts) is in its plural form, therefore, the verb should also be in its plural verb [account]. The option (a) should be the correct answer choice. 

QUESTION: 42

In the following questions, a sentence is divided into five parts with last part of each sentence is highlighted in underline suggesting the grammatically correct part of the sentence. Out of the four other parts, choose the part of the sentence which contains grammatical or contextual error in it. If the given sentence is both grammatically correct and contextually meaningful, choose option (E) i.e., “No error” as your answer.

Q. If the arrest of five prominent(A)/ activists by the Pune police in a coordinated operation(B)/ across four States has result in(C)/ such indignation, it is because of the widespread suspicion(D)/ that this is a part of an orchestrated crackdown on political dissent(E).

Solution:

The error lies in the third part i.e., part (C) of the sentence. Result should be replaced by resulted as here the present perfect tense has been used. The option (b) should be the correct answer choice. 

QUESTION: 43

In the following questions, a sentence is divided into five parts with last part of each sentence is highlighted in underline suggesting the grammatically correct part of the sentence. Out of the four other parts, choose the part of the sentence which contains grammatical or contextual error in it. If the given sentence is both grammatically correct and contextually meaningful, choose option (E) i.e., “No error” as your answer.

Q. One reason (A)/ for the failure is that prosecuting agencies (B)/ typically believe in guilt by association(C)/; they confuse empathy with incitement (D)/ and compassion with collaboration (E). 

Solution:

​The given sentence is grammatically correct and contextually meaningful and hence, does not require any corrections. Therefore, option (e) is the most suitable answer choice.  

QUESTION: 44

In the following questions, a sentence is divided into five parts with last part of each sentence is highlighted in underline suggesting the grammatically correct part of the sentence. Out of the four other parts, choose the part of the sentence which contains grammatical or contextual error in it. If the given sentence is both grammatically correct and contextually meaningful, choose option (E) i.e., “No error” as your answer.

Q. Two recent developments hold out hope (A)/, One was the indictment of a Bill in Parliament to remove leprosy as a ground for legal separation from one’s spouse(B)/, and the other was the Supreme Court asking the Centre(C)/ whether it would bring in a positive law conferring rights and benefits on persons(D)/ with leprosy and rules that perpetuated the stigma associated with it. (E) 

Solution:

The error lies in the second part i.e., part (B) of the sentence. The word indictment should be replaced by introduction, as the word indictment means a ‘formal charge or accusation of a serious crime’ which doesn’t fit in the given context. Introduction of a bill in parliament fits well in the context of given sentence. Therefore, option (b) is the most suitable answer choice.  

QUESTION: 45

In the following questions, a sentence is divided into five parts with last part of each sentence is highlighted in underline suggesting the grammatically correct part of the sentence. Out of the four other parts, choose the part of the sentence which contains grammatical or contextual error in it. If the given sentence is both grammatically correct and contextually meaningful, choose option (E) i.e., “No error” as your answer.

Q. While governments may have (A)/ to handle the legislative part, society has an even larger role (B)/ to play. It is possible to end(C)/ discrimination through law, but stigma tends to survive reform and (D)/ may require more than legal efforts to eliminate(E). 

Solution:

The error lies in the fourth part i.e., part (D) of the sentence. ‘through’ in the fourth part has been wrongly used, through is used to imply the meaning from one position to another position of something; often from one end to the opposite end of something whereas ‘by’ is used when referring to the mode of something. Here in the fourth part it is discussed to end the discrimination by mode of law, so the correct answer choice should be option(c).

QUESTION: 51

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are given in Underline to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

With highly-skilled candidates making intentional job choices, carefully evaluating organizations, the war for software-engineering talent has never been as fierce as it is now. Too many jobs are competing for a very limited supply of in-demand talent. This is a challenge for companies of all sizes — FANGs and startups alike. While seeking critical talent, the challenge before any company is to have a recruitment process that offers a higher chance of closing the candidate quickly. Given the race to close quickly, recruitment teams might reduce steps in the interviewing process, or deploy various techniques to optimize the process. No harm there, but it’s critical that, in doing so, these teams retain a personalized path for the candidate that could lead to a more empathetic interview process. Now, ‘Adaptive Recruiting’ is a model that is agile and personalizes the experience for the candidate.
Adaptive Recruiting begins with understanding the candidate's motivation, as soon as a lead becomes a candidate. Organizations have a window to identify the top three things the candidate cares about or wants to know about, which can inform the recruitment process. Why would someone pick up the phone to talk to a start-up? What is their intrinsic motivation? As a first step, assess what really matters to your candidate. Tap into the candidate’s individual drivers. These could vary from identifying with your company’s mission to solving problems of scale and technical complexity or wanting to learn. Candidates are at a stage in their careers where they are looking to make a more direct impact as part of a much smaller cohort. They seek ownership and autonomy, which a start-up could provide. Spotify for example, has an agile structure that groups employees into small, lean squads that run like individual startups, making their own decisions. For some candidates, it is about the users halfway across the world whose lives they can touch. Others want to build out the tech engineering processes or drive the technical vision at a company. But beyond their career aspirations, understanding where a candidate’s personal drivers or life stage intersects their work, is as important to map their needs and build out a personalized path for the candidate. The motivation and profile you arrive at through the interview process, then funnel to what you can offer — customized mapping or threading based on an informed assessment of what the candidate is looking for.
Adaptive recruiting relies on completing the jigsaw of what a candidate wants, with real-time sharing of these motivating factors between the many participants in the interview process. Adapting traditional progression, where feedback and comments are typically viewed at the end of the process, requires a delicate balance. Whether it is the hiring manager, a peer or the head of the business unit, each participant needs to piece together and share what motivates the candidate through an interview process that is dynamic and adaptive. An interviewer should inform the next person in the process on what the candidate is really looking for. However, tread carefully to keep unconscious bias out and not influence each other’s reasoning. Be nimble to share information for probing and selling across the pipeline, but reserve feedback for the end to maintain the integrity of the process.
A recurring theme through recruitment conversations right now, is how to better understand and shape a candidate’s experience. Hays picked “Recruitment remodeled to Find & Engage” as its Number One recruitment trend for 2018. Digital technology and data science powers the “find” element. The “engage” element understands a candidate’s personal priorities and aspirations for a successful outcome. With smart tools, adaptive recruiting can personalize candidates’ experience at scale, while improving future hiring effectiveness too. In a session at LinkedIn’s 2017 Talent Connect, on how Artificial Intelligence is disrupting talent management, Przemek Berendt, Luxoft’s Vice President of Global Marketing, offered a glimpse of how candidate outreach could be personalized using technology. Imagine if instead of a single version of your Employee Value Proposition (EVP), you could analyze data to understand different personas and build multiple ways to convey your EVP. This would enable organizations to personalise the value proposition for candidates, tailoring it to their individual aspirations and what they value most. The one thing that matters to every software developer is the kind of work they do — the hard problems they solve, the impact they make, the products they build. “It’s not thinking about yourself as an individual just trying to maximize your revenue,” behavioral economist Dan Ariely once said in an interview. There is clearly no substitute for doing what you love, which brings you to work each day.

Q. What do the candidates seek in a start-up while they go for a recruitment process? 

Solution:

Option (d) is the suitable choice. Refer to paragraph 2 which talks about adaptive recruiting and quotes a text,“Candidates are at a stage in their careers where they are looking to make a more direct impact as part of a much smaller cohort. They seek ownership and autonomy, which a start-up could provide.”

Q. How can organizations be sure to maintain the integrity of the recruiting process?

Solution:

Only option (b) is the right choice. The answer can be deduced from paragraph 3 where it is given that whether it is the hiring manager, a peer or the head of the business unit, each participant needs to piece together and share what motivates the candidate through an interview process that is dynamic and adaptive. Be nimble to share information for probing and selling across the pipeline, but reserve feedback for the end to maintain the integrity of the process.

QUESTION: 57

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are given in Underline to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

With highly-skilled candidates making intentional job choices, carefully evaluating organizations, the war for software-engineering talent has never been as fierce as it is now. Too many jobs are competing for a very limited supply of in-demand talent. This is a challenge for companies of all sizes — FANGs and startups alike. While seeking critical talent, the challenge before any company is to have a recruitment process that offers a higher chance of closing the candidate quickly. Given the race to close quickly, recruitment teams might reduce steps in the interviewing process, or deploy various techniques to optimize the process. No harm there, but it’s critical that, in doing so, these teams retain a personalized path for the candidate that could lead to a more empathetic interview process. Now, ‘Adaptive Recruiting’ is a model that is agile and personalizes the experience for the candidate.
Adaptive Recruiting begins with understanding the candidate's motivation, as soon as a lead becomes a candidate. Organizations have a window to identify the top three things the candidate cares about or wants to know about, which can inform the recruitment process. Why would someone pick up the phone to talk to a start-up? What is their intrinsic motivation? As a first step, assess what really matters to your candidate. Tap into the candidate’s individual drivers. These could vary from identifying with your company’s mission to solving problems of scale and technical complexity or wanting to learn. Candidates are at a stage in their careers where they are looking to make a more direct impact as part of a much smaller cohort. They seek ownership and autonomy, which a start-up could provide. Spotify for example, has an agile structure that groups employees into small, lean squads that run like individual startups, making their own decisions. For some candidates, it is about the users halfway across the world whose lives they can touch. Others want to build out the tech engineering processes or drive the technical vision at a company. But beyond their career aspirations, understanding where a candidate’s personal drivers or life stage intersects their work, is as important to map their needs and build out a personalized path for the candidate. The motivation and profile you arrive at through the interview process, then funnel to what you can offer — customized mapping or threading based on an informed assessment of what the candidate is looking for.
Adaptive recruiting relies on completing the jigsaw of what a candidate wants, with real-time sharing of these motivating factors between the many participants in the interview process. Adapting traditional progression, where feedback and comments are typically viewed at the end of the process, requires a delicate balance. Whether it is the hiring manager, a peer or the head of the business unit, each participant needs to piece together and share what motivates the candidate through an interview process that is dynamic and adaptive. An interviewer should inform the next person in the process on what the candidate is really looking for. However, tread carefully to keep unconscious bias out and not influence each other’s reasoning. Be nimble to share information for probing and selling across the pipeline, but reserve feedback for the end to maintain the integrity of the process.
A recurring theme through recruitment conversations right now, is how to better understand and shape a candidate’s experience. Hays picked “Recruitment remodeled to Find & Engage” as its Number One recruitment trend for 2018. Digital technology and data science powers the “find” element. The “engage” element understands a candidate’s personal priorities and aspirations for a successful outcome. With smart tools, adaptive recruiting can personalize candidates’ experience at scale, while improving future hiring effectiveness too. In a session at LinkedIn’s 2017 Talent Connect, on how Artificial Intelligence is disrupting talent management, Przemek Berendt, Luxoft’s Vice President of Global Marketing, offered a glimpse of how candidate outreach could be personalized using technology. Imagine if instead of a single version of your Employee Value Proposition (EVP), you could analyze data to understand different personas and build multiple ways to convey your EVP. This would enable organizations to personalise the value proposition for candidates, tailoring it to their individual aspirations and what they value most. The one thing that matters to every software developer is the kind of work they do — the hard problems they solve, the impact they make, the products they build. “It’s not thinking about yourself as an individual just trying to maximize your revenue,” behavioral economist Dan Ariely once said in an interview. There is clearly no substitute for doing what you love, which brings you to work each day.
