SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 41

Direction: Read the given information and carefully answer the following question.

Eight people A, B, C, D, P, Q, R and S are sitting in a straight line facing both north and south direction. Three people are facing north while others are facing south. They bought cars in different years such as 1974, 1987, 1999, 2003, 2008, 2011, 2016 and 2019. Assuming they bought the cars in the same month.

The person who bought a car in the year 1987 faces the opposite direction to the person who bought a car in the year 2008. The person who bought a car in the year 2003 faces the same direction as the person who bought the car earliest. R is an immediate neighbor of D and A. Q sits sixth to the left of S and bought a car in the year whose sum of its all digits is a common multiple of 4 and 7. S bought the car five years after C but three years before R. B faces the same direction as A and three people sit between them. S sits on one of the extreme ends. C is an immediate neighbor of Q and faces south direction. Difference between the years in which Q and P bought the cars is thrice the difference between the years in which Q and D bought their cars. R bought a car in the year whose last two digits form a prime number but their sum is multiple of 5. Q is an immediate neighbor of A, who faces the opposite direction to S. B does not sit at the second position from the left end. Q faces the same direction as B who bought the car earliest. C bought the car in the year whose last two digits do not form a composite number.

**In which year did A buy the car?**

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 41
Three people are facing north while others are facing south.

7) S sits on one of the extreme ends.

4) Q sits sixth to the left of S and bought a car in the year whose sum of its all digits is a common multiple of 4 and 7.

8) C is an immediate neighbor of Q and faces south direction.

11) Q is an immediate neighbor of (A), who faces the opposite direction to S.

6) B faces the same direction as (A) and three people sit between them.

13) Q faces the same direction as (B) who bought the car earliest.

So, B bought car in 1974.

12) B does not sit at the second position from the left end.

So, case 2 is eliminated.

3) R is an immediate neighbor of D and A.

So, case 1.1 and 2.1 are eliminated as there is no such place for R and D.

10) R bought a car in the year whose last two digits form a prime number but their sum is multiple of 5.

So, the year is 2019 as 9 + 1 = 10 is a multiple of 5.

14) C bought the car in the year whose last two digits do not form a composite number.

So, the years can be either 2003 or 2011.

5) S bought the car five years after C but three years before R.

S bought the car = R – 3 = 2019 – 3 = 2016.

So, C bought the car 2016 - 5 = 2011.

9) Difference between the years in which Q and (P) bought the cars is thrice the difference between the years in which Q and D bought their cars.

(Q – P) = 3 (Q – D)

(1999 – 1987) = 3 (1999 – 2003)

12 = 4 × 3

12 = 12

So, P bought the car in 1987 and D bought in 2003.

1) The person who bought a car in the year 1987 faces the opposite direction to the person who bought a car in the year 2008.

A bought the car in the year 2008 and faces south so P faces north.

2) The person who bought a car in the year 2003 faces the same direction as the person who bought the car earliest.

So, D faces south and so R faces north.

So, in 2008 A bought the car.

Hence, the correct option is (D).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 46

Study the following data carefully and answer the questions:

Data given below is related to the temperature (in ˚c) of 3 cities A, B and C recorded on 5 different days Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu and Fri.

Pie chart given below shows the degree distribution of temperature of city A in the given 5 days.

**In city A, if average temperature of that week is 38˚c and ratio of temperature on Sat to that on Sun is 20: 23, then find that temperature on Sun is what per cent more than that on Mon in city A.**

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 46
Let temperature of city B on Mon = p˚c

So, temperature of city A on Mon = 64% of ‘p’ = (16p/25)˚c

And temperature of city C on Mon = (p – 6)˚c

Average temperature of all the 3 cities on Mon = 180 * (84/360) = 42˚c

So,

(16p/25) + p + (p – 6) = 3 * 42

16p + 50p = 3300

p = 50

Temperature of city A on Mon = 50 * (16/25) = 32˚c

Temperature of city B on Mon = 50˚c

Temperature of city C on Mon = 50 – 6 = 44˚c

Average temperature of all the 3 cities on Tue = 180 * (72/360) = 36˚c

Temperature of city A on Tue = 32 * (80/64) = 40˚c

Let temperature of city B on Tue = q˚c

And temperature of city C on Tue = (q + 4)˚c

So, q + (q + 4) = 3 * 36 – 40

q = 32

Temperature of city B on Tue = 32˚c

Temperature of city C on Tue = (32 + 4) = 36˚c

Average temperature of all the 3 cities on Wed = 180 * (80/360) = 40˚c

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 55

Study the following data carefully and answer the questions:

Four trains A, B, C and D take different – different time from station P to reach station Q, when they run at their original speeds (in m/s).

Table given below shows the departure time (hh:mm) of each train from station P and arrival time (hh:mm) of each train at station Q.

**Note:**1: If train A runs at 5m/s less than its original speed, it reaches station Q 1 hour 10 minutes late from the arrival time.

2: Length of a train can be different for a particular question.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 55
Train A

Departure time of train A from station P = 13:10

Arrival time of train A at station Q = 17: 50

Running time of train,A from station P to station Q:

4 hours 40 minutes = 280 minutes = 16800 seconds

Extra time taken by train A, when it runs at 5 m/s less than its original speed:

1 hour 10 minutes = 70 minutes = 4200 seconds

So, total time taken by train A to reach station Q with its new speed:

16800 + 4200 = 21000 seconds

Let original speed of train A = ‘x’ m/s

Also let distance between station P and station Q = ‘d’ m

So,

x = d/16800 ----------------(1)

And,

(x – 5) = d/21000 ----------------(2)

From equations (1) and (2):

16800x = (x – 5) * 21000

16800x = 21000x – 105000

x = 25, d = 420000

Original speed of train A = 25 m/s

Distance between station P and station Q = 420000 m = 420 km

Train B:

Departure time of train B from station P = 06:50

Arrival time of train B at station Q = 10:10

Running time of train B from station P to station Q:

3 hours 20 minutes = 200 minutes = 12000 seconds

So, speed of train B = 420000/12000 = 35 m/s

Train C:

Departure time of train C from station P = 23:30

Arrival time of train C at station Q = 05:20

Running time of train C from station P to station Q:

5 hours 50 minutes = 350 minutes = 21000 seconds

So, speed of train C = 420000/21000 = 20 m/s

Train D:

Departure time of train D from station P = 18:10

Arrival time of train D at station Q = 05: 50

Running time of train D from station P to station Q:

11 hours 40 minutes = 700 minutes = 42000 seconds

So, speed of train D = 420000/42000 = 10 m/s

If train A crosses train B in 7 seconds, while running in opposite direction, then what can be the possible lengths of trains A and B

Speed of train A = 25 m/s

Speed of train B = 35 m/s

Relative speed when train A crosses train B while running in opposite direction:

25 + 35 = 60 m/s

Time taken by train A to cross train B while running in opposite direction = 7 sec

So, sum of their lengths will be = 60 * 7 = 420 m

From option (a):

Sum of length of trains A and B = 165 + 275 = 440 m

From option (b):

Sum of length of trains A and B = 145 + 265 = 410 m

From option (c):

Sum of length of trains A and B = 165 + 255 = 420 m

From option (d):

Sum of length of trains A and B = 155 + 275 = 430 m

From option (e):

Sum of length of trains A and B = 155 + 245 = 400

Hence, option (c) is correct.

Table given below shows the departure time (hh:mm) of each train from station P and arrival time (hh:mm) of each train at station Q.

**Note:**1: If train A runs at 5m/s less than its original speed, it reaches station Q 1 hour 10 minutes late from the arrival time.

2: Length of a train can be different for a particular question.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 56
Train A

Departure time of train A from station P = 13:10

Arrival time of train A at station Q = 17: 50

Running time of train,A from station P to station Q:

4 hours 40 minutes = 280 minutes = 16800 seconds

Extra time taken by train A, when it runs at 5 m/s less than its original speed:

1 hour 10 minutes = 70 minutes = 4200 seconds

So, total time taken by train A to reach station Q with its new speed:

16800 + 4200 = 21000 seconds

Let original speed of train A = ‘x’ m/s

Also let distance between station P and station Q = ‘d’ m

So,

x = d/16800 ----------------(1)

And,

(x – 5) = d/21000 ----------------(2)

From equations (1) and (2):

16800x = (x – 5) * 21000

16800x = 21000x – 105000

x = 25, d = 420000

Original speed of train A = 25 m/s

Distance between station P and station Q = 420000 m = 420 km

Train B:

Departure time of train B from station P = 06:50

Arrival time of train B at station Q = 10:10

Running time of train B from station P to station Q:

3 hours 20 minutes = 200 minutes = 12000 seconds

So, speed of train B = 420000/12000 = 35 m/s

Train C:

Departure time of train C from station P = 23:30

Arrival time of train C at station Q = 05:20

Running time of train C from station P to station Q:

5 hours 50 minutes = 350 minutes = 21000 seconds

So, speed of train C = 420000/21000 = 20 m/s

Train D:

Departure time of train D from station P = 18:10

Arrival time of train D at station Q = 05: 50

Running time of train D from station P to station Q:

11 hours 40 minutes = 700 minutes = 42000 seconds

So, speed of train D = 420000/42000 = 10 m/s

Speed of train B = 35 m/s

Speed of train C = 20 m/s

Length of train C = 200 m

Let the length of train B = ‘b’ m

So,

35 – 20 = (b + 200)/25

b = 175

Length of train B = 175 m

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 57

2: Length of a train can be different for a particular question.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 57
Train A

Departure time of train A from station P = 13:10

Arrival time of train A at station Q = 17: 50

Running time of train, A from station P to station Q:

4 hours 40 minutes = 280 minutes = 16800 seconds

Extra time taken by train A, when it runs at 5 m/s less than its original speed:

1 hour 10 minutes = 70 minutes = 4200 seconds

So, total time taken by train A to reach station Q with its new speed:

16800 + 4200 = 21000 seconds

Let original speed of train A = ‘x’ m/s

Also let distance between station P and station Q = ‘d’ m

So,

x = d/16800 ----------------(1)

And,

(x – 5) = d/21000 ----------------(2)

From equations (1) and (2):

16800x = (x – 5) * 21000

16800x = 21000x – 105000

x = 25, d = 420000

Original speed of train A = 25 m/s

Distance between station P and station Q = 420000 m = 420 km

Train B:

Departure time of train B from station P = 06:50

Arrival time of train B at station Q = 10:10

Running time of train B from station P to station Q:

3 hours 20 minutes = 200 minutes = 12000 seconds

So, speed of train B = 420000/12000 = 35 m/s

Train C:

Departure time of train C from station P = 23:30

Arrival time of train C at station Q = 05:20

Running time of train C from station P to station Q:

5 hours 50 minutes = 350 minutes = 21000 seconds

So, speed of train C = 420000/21000 = 20 m/s

Train D:

Departure time of train D from station P = 18:10

Arrival time of train D at station Q = 05: 50

Running time of train D from station P to station Q:

11 hours 40 minutes = 700 minutes = 42000 seconds

So, speed of train D = 420000/42000 = 10 m/s

Original speed of train C = 20 m/s

The speed, at which train C started running from station P = 80% of 20 = 16 m/s

The time, for which train C travelled at 16 m/s = 4 hours 10 minutes = 15000 seconds

Distance covered by train C in 15000 seconds at 16 m/s:

16 * 15000 = 240000 m

Distance between station P and station Q = 420 km = 420000 m

Remaining distance to be travelled by rain C = 420000 – 240000 = 180000 m

Remaining time = 350 – 250 = 100 minutes = 6000 seconds

So, the speed, at which train C will have to cover remaining distance:

180000/6000 = 30 m/s

Required percentage = [(30 – 16)/16] * 100 = 87.5%

Train A

Departure time of train A from station P = 13:10

Arrival time of train A at station Q = 17: 50

Running time of train,A from station P to station Q:

4 hours 40 minutes = 280 minutes = 16800 seconds

Extra time taken by train A, when it runs at 5 m/s less than its original speed:

1 hour 10 minutes = 70 minutes = 4200 seconds

So, total time taken by train A to reach station Q with its new speed:

16800 + 4200 = 21000 seconds

Let original speed of train A = ‘x’ m/s

Also let distance between station P and station Q = ‘d’ m

So,

x = d/16800 ----------------(1)

And,

(x – 5) = d/21000 ----------------(2)

From equations (1) and (2):

16800x = (x – 5) * 21000

16800x = 21000x – 105000

x = 25, d = 420000

Original speed of train A = 25 m/s

Distance between station P and station Q = 420000 m = 420 km

Train C:

Departure time of train C from station P = 23:30

Arrival time of train C at station Q = 05:20

Running time of train C from station P to station Q:

5 hours 50 minutes = 350 minutes = 21000 seconds

So, speed of train C = 420000/21000 = 20 m/s

Train D:

Departure time of train D from station P = 18:10

Arrival time of train D at station Q = 05: 50

Running time of train D from station P to station Q:

11 hours 40 minutes = 700 minutes = 42000 seconds

So, speed of train D = 420000/42000 = 10 m/s

Time taken by train D to reach station Q, when runs with original speed:

11 hours 40 minutes = 700 minutes

Time taken by train D to reach station Q, when runs with new speed:

(11 hours 40 minutes) – (3 hours 20 minutes) = 700 – 200 = 500 minutes

Since, ratio of original time to new time = 700: 500 = 7: 5

So, ratio of original speed to new speed = 5: 7

So, x = [(7 – 5)/5] * 100 = 40%

So, marked price of item Q = 1518 * (100/92) + 350 = Rs.2000

MP of item M = Rs.1200

So, additional discount on item M = 20% of (1200 – 100) = Rs.220

MP of item N = Rs.1800

So, additional discount on item N = 6% of (1800 – 250) = Rs.93

MP of item O = Rs.1000

So, additional discount on item O = 16% of (1000 – 150) = Rs.136

MP of item P = Rs.1600

So, additional discount on item P = 10% of (1600 – 300) = Rs.130

MP of item Q = Rs.2000

So, additional discount on item Q = 8% of (2000 – 350) = Rs.132

Hence, additional discount is maximum on item M.

A swimmer swims from point A against a current for 8 minutes and then swims backwards in favor of the current for next 8 minutes and comes to the point B. If AB = 200 meter, then what is the speed of the current (in kmph)?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 67
Given

Man swimmer swims from point A against a current for 8 minutes.

Man Swims backwards in favor of the current for next 8 minutes and comes to the point B.

Distance between A and B = 200 m

Speed upstream = (x + y) km/hr

Speed downstream = (x – y) km/hr

Where x and y are speed of boat and speed of stream respectively.

Let speed of swimmer be x km/hr and speed of current be y km/hr

⇒ Downstream speed = (x + y) km/hr

⇒ Upstream speed = (x – y) km/hr

Downstream distance covered in 8 minutes by swimmer

Upstream distance covered in 8 minutes by swimmer

∴ Speed of stream = 0.75 km/hr

Hence, the correct option is (B).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 75

Answer the questions based on the information given below.

There are four boats P, Q, R and S which are travelling in four different streams. The speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water is equal to the upstream speed of boat ‘P’ such that the difference between the upstream speed of boat ‘Q’ and downstream speed of boat ‘P’ is 27 km/hr. The time taken by boat ‘P’ to travel 510 km in downstream is 15 hours. The ratio of the speeds of boat ‘P’ and boat ‘R’, in still water is 5:8, respectively. If the speed of boat ‘R’ in still water had been 30% less then it would take 13.8 hours to cover 690 km in downstream. The speed of the current for boat ‘S’ is 6 km/h less than that of the speed of current for boat ‘R’. If the speed of the boat ‘S’ in still water had been 4 km/hr more, then the time taken by boat ‘S’ to travel 330 km in upstream would have been 27.5 hours. The speed of the current for boats ‘P’ and ‘Q’ is same.

**Which of the following cannot be determined using the information given above?**

**I. Speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water**

**II. Speed of current for boat ‘S’**

**III. Upstream speed of boat ‘R’**

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 75
Let the speed of the boat ‘P’ in still water and the speed of the current be ‘x’ km/hr and ‘y’ km/hr, respectively

Therefore, speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = (x – y) km/hr

According to the question,

(x + y) – (x – y – y) = 27

Or, 3y = 27

Or, y = 9

Also, (x – y – y) – (x + y) = 27

Or, -3y = 27 (not possible because the speed of the current cannot be negative)

Therefore, speed of the current = 9 km/hr

According to the question,

(x + 9) = 510/15

Or, x = 34 – 9 = 25

Therefore, speed of boat ‘P’ in still water = 25 km/hr

Speed of current = y = 9 km/hr

Speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = (x – y) = 16 km/hr

Therefore, speed of boat ‘R’ in still water = 25 × 8/5 = 40 km/hr

Let the speed of the current for boat ‘R’ be ‘z’ km/hr

According to the question,

0.70 × 40 + z = 690/13.8

Or, z = 50 – 28 = 22

Therefore, speed of the current for boat ‘R’ = 22 km/hr

Speed of current for boat ‘S’ = 22 – 6 = 16 km/hr

Let the speed of boat ‘S’ in still water be ‘m’ km/hr

Therefore,

(m + 4 – 16) = 330/27.5

Or, m = 12 + 12 = 24

Therefore, speed of boat ‘S’ in still water = 24 km/hr

**For I:**

Speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = 16 km/hr

So, I can be determined.

**For II:**

Speed of current for boat ‘S’ = 16 km/hr

So, II can be determined

**For III:**

Upstream speed of boat ‘R’ = 40 – 25 = 24 km/hr

The time taken by boat ‘P’ to travel 510 km in downstream is 15 hours. The ratio of the speeds of boat ‘P’ and boat ‘R’, in still water is 5:8, respectively. If the speed of boat ‘R’ in still water had been 30% less then it would take 13.8 hours to cover 690 km in downstream. The speed of the current for boat ‘S’ is 6 km/h less than that of the speed of current for boat ‘R’. If the speed of the boat ‘S’ in still water had been 4 km/hr more, then the time taken by boat ‘S’ to travel 330 km in upstream would have been 27.5 hours. The speed of the current for boats ‘P’ and ‘Q’ is same.

**The downstream speed of boat ‘R’ is how much percent more/less than that of boat ‘Q’?**

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 76
Let the speed of the boat ‘P’ in still water and the speed of the current be ‘x’ km/hr and ‘y’ km/hr, respectively

Therefore, speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = (x – y) km/hr

According to the question,

(x + y) – (x – y – y) = 27

Or, 3y = 27

Or, y = 9

Also, (x – y – y) – (x + y) = 27

Or, -3y = 27 (not possible because the speed of the current cannot be negative)

Therefore, speed of the current = 9 km/hr

According to the question,

(x + 9) = 510/15

Or, x = 34 – 9 = 25

Therefore, speed of boat ‘P’ in still water = 25 km/hr

Speed of current = y = 9 km/hr

Speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = (x – y) = 16 km/hr

Therefore, speed of boat ‘R’ in still water = 25 × 8/5 = 40 km/hr

Let the speed of the current for boat ‘R’ be ‘z’ km/hr

According to the question,

0.70 × 40 + z = 690/13.8

Or, z = 50 – 28 = 22

Therefore, speed of the current for boat ‘R’ = 22 km/hr

Speed of current for boat ‘S’ = 22 – 6 = 16 km/hr

Let the speed of boat ‘S’ in still water be ‘m’ km/hr

Therefore,

(m + 4 – 16) = 330/27.5

Or, m = 12 + 12 = 24

Therefore, speed of boat ‘S’ in still water = 24 km/hr

Downstream speed of boat ‘Q’ = 16 + 9 = 25 km/hr

Downstream speed of boat ‘R’ = 40 + 22 = 62 km/hr

Required percentage = {(62 – 25)/25} × 100 = 148%

Therefore, speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = (x – y) km/hr

According to the question,

(x + y) – (x – y – y) = 27

Or, 3y = 27

Or, y = 9

Also, (x – y – y) – (x + y) = 27

Or, -3y = 27 (not possible because the speed of the current cannot be negative)

Therefore, speed of the current = 9 km/hr

According to the question,

(x + 9) = 510/15

Or, x = 34 – 9 = 25

Therefore, speed of boat ‘P’ in still water = 25 km/hr

Speed of current = y = 9 km/hr

Speed of boat ‘Q’ in still water = (x – y) = 16 km/hr

Therefore, speed of boat ‘R’ in still water = 25 × 8/5 = 40 km/hr

Let the speed of the current for boat ‘R’ be ‘z’ km/hr

According to the question,

0.70 × 40 + z = 690/13.8

Or, z = 50 – 28 = 22

Therefore, speed of the current for boat ‘R’ = 22 km/hr

Speed of current for boat ‘S’ = 22 – 6 = 16 km/hr

Let the speed of boat ‘S’ in still water be ‘m’ km/hr

Therefore,

(m + 4 – 16) = 330/27.5

Or, m = 12 + 12 = 24

Therefore, speed of boat ‘S’ in still water = 24 km/hr

Required time taken = 576/(16 + 16) = 18 hours

**The total number of Nike T - shirts with either Full sleeves or Blue color or both is what percent of the total number of T - shirts in the shop?**

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 1 - Question 79
Total number of Blue color T - shirts in the shop = 3000

⇒ Total number of t - shirts in the shop

Total number of Blue color Nike long sleeves T - shirts in the shop = 1000

⇒ Total number of Long sleeves T - shirts in the shop = 1000 × 5 = 5000

⇒ Total number of Nike T - shirts in the shop = 110% of 5000 = 5500

Total number of Blue color Nike T - shirts in the shop = 1500

⇒ Total number of Blue color Nike T - shirts but not of Long sleeves = 1500 - 1000 = 500

Total number of Long sleeves Nike T - shirts in the shop = 3500

Total number of long sleeves Nike T - shirts but not of blue color = 5500 - (2500 + 500 + 1000) = 1500

Let the total number of Long sleeves T - shirts of other brands than Nike and of color other than Blue be x.

Total number of Blue color T - shirts of Brand other Nike and other than long Sleeves t - shirts = x

Let the total number of Long sleeves blue color T - shirts be y.

Total number of Blue color T - shirts = 1000 + y = 1500

⇒ y = 500

Total number of Blue color T - shirts = 500 + 1000 + 500 + x = 3000

⇒ x = 1000

Total number of Long sleeves T - shirts of Brand other than Nike and of color other than Blue = x = 1000

Total number of Blue color T - shirts of brands other than Nike and other than Long sleeves T - shirts = x = 1000

Total number of Nike T-shirts of either Long sleeves or color blue or both = 2500 + 1000 + 500 = 4000

Total number of T-shirts in the shop = 8000

Hence, the correct option is (A).

Repo Rate

Reverse Repo Rate

Liquidity Adjustment Facility

Cash Reserve Ratio

Statutory Liquidity Ratio

Open Market Operations
