SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 1

Study the following information carefully to answer the given questions.

There are ten boys who sits on two parallel rows of bench containing five people each, in such a way that there is an equal distance between adjacent boys, for doing some office work and they like different laptops viz. H.P, Lenovo, Compaq, Dell, Apple, Acer, Asus, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba. In row 1 – Mehul, Varun, Sumit, Rahul and Rohit are seated and some of them are facing south and some of them are facing north. In row 2 – Ajay, Ajit, Ashish, Arun and Amit are seated and some of them are facing south and some of them are facing north. Therefore in the given seating arrangement, each member seated in a row either faces another member of the other row or seated behind each other.

(i) The boy who likes Dell sits to the immediate right of Ajit, who seated exactly in the middle of the row.

(ii) One who of the immediate neighbours of the boy, who likes Apple, sits behind the boy who likes Compaq. Arun does not like Compaq.

(iii) Rahul likes neither Apple nor Acer. Ajay sits immediate right of the boy who likes Sony.

(iv) Sumit sits third to the right of the boy who likes Lenovo. Ajay does not face Mehul and faces north direction.

(v) The boy who likes HP sits exactly between the boys who like Toshiba and Apple. Mehul likes Apple and sits in the middle of the row 1.

(vi) Amit faces North Direction and sits immediate left of Ajit. Only one boy sits between the boys who like Compaq and Dell.

(vii) Ajay sits opposite to one of the immediate neighbours of the boy who likes Lenovo. Rahul faces one of the immediate neighbours of the boy who likes Compaq.

(viii) Only one boy sits between the boy who likes Sony and Ajit who likes Asus. Sumit sits to the immediate right of the boy who faces Arun.

(ix) Only two people sit between Sumit and Rohit. Arun likes neither HP nor Samsung.

(x) The boy who likes Apple sits second to the right of the one who faces North Direction. Ashish sits one of the extreme ends of the line and likes Sony.

(xi) Mehul faces the opposite direction to the boy who likes Asus. Rahul faces north direction and the one who faces Rahul, faces south direction. Varun faces north direction.

(xii) Sumit is facing opposite direction to Amit.

Q. Which of the following is true regarding Arun?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 1 From (i) The boy who likes Dell sits to the immediate right of Ajit, who seated exactly in the middle of the row. Ajit is sitting in the middle of row 2.

(vi) Amit faces North Direction and sits immediate left of Ajit. Only one boy sits between the boys who like Compaq and Dell.

(viii) Only one boy sits between the boy who likes Sony and Ajit who likes Asus.

(iii) Rahul likes neither Apple nor Acer. Ajay sits immediate right of the boy who likes Sony. If in case 1 Sony faces north direction then Ajay will be in his right position but already Amit is sitting so this case gets violated. Now in case 2 Sony is facing towards south direction then Ajay can be his immediate neighbour.

Now, (iv) Sumit sits third to the right of the boy who likes Lenovo. Ajay does not face Mehul and faces north direction.

(vii) Ajay sits opposite to one of the immediate neighbours of the boy who likes Lenovo. Rahul faces one of the immediate neighbours of the boy who likes Compaq.

(ii) One who of the immediate neighbours of the boy, who likes Apple, sits behind the boy who likes Compaq. Arun does not like Compaq.

(x) The boy who likes Apple sits second to the right of the one who faces North Direction. Ashish sits one of the extreme ends of the line and likes Sony.

So Ajay is sitting opposite to neighbour of Lenovo and Rahul faces one of the immediate neighbours of the boy who likes Compaq. So Rahul can be at the 3rd place or at the extreme right end of Row 1. Arun doesn’t like Compaq and there is only one place left for Arun is extreme right end of Row 2. The boy who likes Apple sits second to the right of the one who faces North Direction that means the person liking Lenovo laptop is facing north. Ashish likes Sony. Sumit sits third to the right of the boy who likes Lenovo. If Lenovo is facing north and cannot be at position 3rd according to this so it will be at 1st position and Sumit is sitting at its third right. From

(iii) Rahul likes neither Apple nor Acer. So its confirm Rahul is not an extreme right end he will be at the position opposite to Ajit.

(xi) Mehul faces the opposite direction to the boy who likes Asus. Rahul faces north direction and the one who faces Rahul, faces south direction. Varun faces north direction. Mehul faces north direction as opposite to him Ajit is facing south direction. Arun is facing Rahul and he is facing south direction.

(ix) Only two people sit between Sumit and Rohit. Arun likes neither HP nor Samsung.

(v) The boy who likes HP sits exactly between the boys who like Toshiba and Apple, Sumit likes HP. Mehul likes Apple and sits in the middle of the row 1. Varun likes Samsung and Arun likes Acer.

(xii) Sumit is facing opposite direction to Amit.

Directions: In this question, the relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. These statements are followed by two conclusions.

Statement: H = M ≤ W; C ≥ W < S

Conclusions:

I. C = M

II. C > M

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 17 Given statements are: H = M ≤ W; C ≥ W < S

On rearranging: H = M ≤ W ≤ C; W < S

Conclusions:

I. C = M (False as C ≥ M)

II. C > M (False as C ≥ M)

But both the conclusions form a complementary pair; hence either I or II follows.

Hence, the correct option is (C).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 18

The argument about whether demonetisation was good or bad for the economy refuses to die down even a year after the event. While one can endlessly debate, with very little data, on whether the ban on high-value currency notes dealt a body blow to terrorism, corruption and counterfeiting, one area in which its impact can be quantified with data is tax compliance. In FY18, net collections increased by 17.1%.

Which of the following can be postulated from the given statement?

I. Counterfeiting of notes was one of the major concern for Government of India.

II. Many economists has termed it wrong as it has impact badly on the weaker section of the society.

III. There has been revamp in the percentage increase of direct tax with respect to indirect tax.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 18 For I: Yes, about counterfeiting is mentioned, whether ban on high currency notes gets success in terrorism, corruption and counterfeiting. So, we can easily assume that Govt. was concerned about the counterfeiting of notes. For II: Yes, as according to statement demonetization is good or bad is a matter of debate, but its impact on weaker section is not mentioned, but if we assume it as bad we can consider that it has bad impact on weaker sections of society. For III: No, from statement we can conclude that there is revamp in tax compliance but to classify its increment into direct and indirect tax, it’s not possible to assume according to statement.
SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 19

Study the following information carefully and answer the below questions.

In a machine language numbers from 0 to 9 are coded as different letters of alphabetical order. Each digit can be coded with only one letter. Now, study the below arithmetic problem given below.

B S M D + H L P S = H L M S Z

What is the perfect square of HD?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 19

We have

From the left side, we have: B + H = H L

Since, each number represents different numbers, and the sum of two different digits gives a maximum (9 + 8) = 17. Even if we get any carry forwards we only have possible carry forward 1.

17 + 1 (carry) = 18.

But, as B is added with H, and the maximum possible number of H must be 1.

Thus, H must be 1, and we have two possible values of B must be 9 or 8.

Based on the above given information we have:

Again, we have:

Since, (S + 0) = M, thus we must get a carry forward from (M + P).

For case (1):If S = 2, then M = 3.

Similarly, (3 + P) = 12, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 2) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 3 + P)

That means, the maximum possible number for D must be 7, but (7 + 2) = 9, which never produces any carry.

Thus, S can’t be 2.

Case (1a):

Now again, let’s take S = 3, and M = 4.

Similarly, (4 + P) = 13, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 3) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 4 + P)

That means, maximum possible value of D must be 7, but (7 + 3) = 10, and Z can’t be 0.

Thus, S can’t be 3.

Case (1b):

Now again, let’s take S = 4, and M = 5.

Similarly, (5 + P) = 14, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 4) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 5 + P)

That means, maximum possible value of D must be 7, but (7 + 4) = 11, and Z can’t be 1.

Thus, S can’t be 4.

Case (1c):

Now again, let’s take S = 5, and M = 6.

Similarly, (6 + P) = 15, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 5) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 6 + P)

That means, maximum possible value of D must be 7, but (7 + 5) = 12

Thus, S = 5, and Z = 2.

Case (2):

Since, (S + 0) = 1 M, as 1 carry forward given to (B + H), thus maximum possible value of S = 9, and (9 + 0 + 1) = 10, thus value of M = 0, but already L = 0. Thus, case (2) is not valid.

Based on the above given information we have the following result:

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 20

Study the following information carefully and answer the below questions.

In a machine language numbers from 0 to 9 are coded as different letters of alphabetical order. Each digit can be coded with only one letter. Now, study the below arithmetic problem given below.

B S M D + H L P S = H L M S Z

What is the product of SD?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 20 We have

From the left side, we have: B + H = H L

Since, each number represents different numbers, and the sum of two different digits gives a maximum (9 + 8) = 17. Even if we get any carry forwards we only have possible carry forward 1.

17 + 1 (carry) = 18.

But, as B is added with H, and the maximum possible number of H must be 1.

Thus, H must be 1, and we have two possible values of B must be 9 or 8.

Based on the above given information we have:

Again, we have:

Since, (S + 0) = M, thus we must get a carry forward from (M + P).

For case (1):If S = 2, then M = 3.

Similarly, (3 + P) = 12, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 2) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 3 + P)

That means, the maximum possible number for D must be 7, but (7 + 2) = 9, which never produces any carry.

Thus, S can’t be 2.

Case (1a):

Now again, let’s take S = 3, and M = 4.

Similarly, (4 + P) = 13, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 3) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 4 + P)

That means, maximum possible value of D must be 7, but (7 + 3) = 10, and Z can’t be 0.

Thus, S can’t be 3.

Case (1b):

Now again, let’s take S = 4, and M = 5.

Similarly, (5 + P) = 14, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 4) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 5 + P)

That means, maximum possible value of D must be 7, but (7 + 4) = 11, and Z can’t be 1.

Thus, S can’t be 4.

Case (1c):

Now again, let’s take S = 5, and M = 6.

Similarly, (6 + P) = 15, thus, P must be 8.

Now, again (D + 5) = 1 Z (as, we have to forward carry to 6 + P)

That means, maximum possible value of D must be 7, but (7 + 5) = 12

Thus, S = 5, and Z = 2.

Case (2):

Since, (S + 0) = 1 M, as 1 carry forward given to (B + H), thus maximum possible value of S = 9, and (9 + 0 + 1) = 10, thus value of M = 0, but already L = 0. Thus, case (2) is not valid.

Based on the above given information we have the following result:

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 21

Direction: In the question below is given a statement followed by three assumptions numbered I, II and III. An assumption is something supposed or taken for granted. You have to consider the following assumption and decide which of the assumption is implicit in the statement.

Statement: The Indian authorities have allowed commercial operations to all the airports that were shut after a few fighter jets of the Pakistani Air Force entered the Indian side of Kashmir. The authorities had informed all airlines that airports near the Jammu & Kashmir region and Dehradun have been closed.

Assumptions:

I. The Pakistani Air Force entered the Indian side of Kashmir after the Indian Air Force entered the Pakistani territory and bombed a terrorist training center in Pakistan.

II. Several airline executives confirmed that the government has informed them that flights to Jammu, Srinagar, Leh, Amritsar, Dehradun & Dharamshala have been suspended ‘till further notice.’

III. One official added that no Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) has been issued yet. It is a notification to the government that the airlines have received, the source in the know said.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 21 The correct answer is option (A), i.e. None is implicit.

An assumption is a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof.

From the statement, it is evident the Indian authorities have allowed commercial operations to all the airports near the Jammu & Kashmir region and Dehradun that was shut after a few fighter jets of the Pakistani Air Force entered the Indian side of Kashmir. And further information regarding its components is also mentioned.

Assumption I can be rejected as the information stated in it is not backed by the context given.

Assumption II is not an apt assumption that can be made on the basis of the information provided. All the places mentioned for example Amritsar, Dharamshala are not evident from the given context.

Assumption III is rejected as it is contradictory to the information stated. It states that no NOTAM has been issued whereas the given information states that information has been sent to the authorities.

Thus, all of the assumptions are irrelevant and can be rejected and the most appropriate answer choice is option (A).

Hence, the correct option is (A).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 37

Directions: Study the following information and answer the given questions.

In a numeric series, all the even numbers are represented as the sum of digits of its square and if the sum consists of more than 1 digit then again add the digits (For Ex. 8 square is 64 then the sum is 10 hence, 8 is coded as 1 (1 + 0)). All the odd numbers are represented as consecutive 5th alphabet of the alphabetical series starting from E (For ex. 1 is coded as E, 3 is coded as J)

In coded language:

“42765” is coded as - 74T9O

Now following operations are to be applied to the coded number:

I. If the number formed by adding all the digits in the coded number is divisible by 3 then all the digits must be again coded as the corresponding alphabets of all those digits.

II. If there is any prime number in the coded form then they are to be coded as $.

III. If there is more than 1 vowel in the coded number then all those vowels must be replaced with the next alphabet.

IV. If the coded form starts and ends with a consonant then they must be interchanged.

If the coded form does not satisfy the conditions given above then it should be kept as it is.

If both the conditions, I and II are satisfied then directions given in condition I must be followed and accept this if any two or three conditions are satisfied at the same time then the directions given in all the conditions must be followed.

Q. What will be the coded form of “762147” after applying the given conditions?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 37 “762147” can be coded as ⇒ “T94E7T”

Since there is one prime number ‘7’ in the coded form, it must be replaced with $.

Since coded form starts and ends with a consonant then they must be interchanged.

So, “762147” is coded as “T94E$T”.

Hence, the correct option is (B).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 38

Q. Which of the following number will be coded as “TGDETJD” after applying the given conditions?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 38 Checking all the options will be tedious so use the elimination method.

T can only be the code for 7 (1 or 3 will never give T)

So, options (B) and (C) are eliminated.

Now checking option 1 and 4:

7421532 can be coded as ⇒ T74EOJ4 ⇒ TGDFPJD

7421732 can be coded as ⇒ T74ETJ4 ⇒ TGDETJD

So, the correct option is '7421732'.

Hence, the correct option is (D).

Q. How many consonants will be there in the coded form of “68581247818” after applying the given conditions?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 40 “68581247818” can be coded as ⇒ “91O1E47T1E1”

The coded form has the digits 9, 1, 1, 4, 7, 1, 1 and their sum is 24. So, it is divisible by 3, so condition 1 satisfies.

The coded form has the prime number 7 also hence condition 2 satisfies.

But we know that when both conditions I and II are satisfied then directions given in condition I must be followed.

Therefore, the coded form is “IAOAEDGTAEA"

The coded form has more than 1 vowel, hence condition 3 satisfies.

So, the coded form ⇒ “JBPBFDGTBFB”

Therefore, there are 11 consonants.

Hence, the correct option is (C).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 46

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday told the Supreme Court that allowing dealings in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoins would encourage illegal transactions and it has already issued a circular prohibiting use of these virtual currencies. Cryptocurrencies are ‘a stateless digital currency’ in which encryption techniques are used for trading and these 'currencies' operate independently of a central bank like the RBI, ‘rendering it immune from government interference’. A bench headed by Chief Justice was informed that a committee has been set up by the Centre to deal with the issues relating to cryptocurrencies and the matters required a final and early decision from the top court.

Q. Which of the following can be logically deduced from the above information?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 46 We first make sure to read the statement carefully and then see what immediate inferences can be drawn based on our first reading. The next step is to look at the statements given in the options, analyze them and see if they seem relevant with respect to the information/data provided to us. From the statement, we can infer that RBI has told the Supreme Court that cryptocurrencies might pose as a threat and to focus on this grave issue a committee has been formed to deal with the matter.

(1) can be rejected as no information regarding the fact that some petitions or all, challenged the use of virtual currency is evident thus, it can be rejected.

(3) can be eliminated as exact details regarding the hearing on ‘May 17’ cannot be deduced as no information regarding it is stated in the given statement. Based on the similar grounds we can reject (4) also, as ‘three weeks’ time cannot be inferred. If it would have written ‘some weeks’ then it could have been a suitable deduction but also nothing has been mentioned about the role of ‘Federal bank’ thus, it is definitely not a deduction of the given statement.

(2) is the most promising deduction. It captures the general fact that the bench headed by the CJI has given time to the Center and the RBI for filling their responses. Moreover, we don’t have any option like ‘none can be deduced’. Therefore, option (B) is the only option choice that we have.

As all the other options except (2) are irrelevant with respect to the data provided in the statement. Thus, the correct answer is option (B).

Hence, the correct option is (B).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 47

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

P and Q started from point A, at same time and running towards point D. Point A, B, C and D are collinear (same order). Time taken by P to travel distance from B to C is 6 hours more than that of Q, while time taken by P to travel from A to B and from C to D respectively is 8 hours and 14 hours less than that of Q. Distance between A and B is twice as that of distance between C and D, while distance between B and C is thrice of distance between C and D. Average speed of P for overall journey is 90 km/h while of Q is 60 km/h.

Find total distance between point A and point D.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 47 Ratio of speed of P to Q = 90:60 = 3:2

Ratio of time taken = 2:3

Difference between travelling time of P and Q = 8 + 14 – 6 = 16 hours

So, travelling time of P = [2 / (3 – 2)] x 16 = 32 hours

Travelling time of Q = 32/2 x 3 = 48 hours

Distance between A and D = 32 x 90 = 2880 km

Ratio of distance between, AB, BC, and CD respectively = 2:3:1

Distance between AB = 2/6 x 2880 = 960 km

Distance between BC = 3/6 x 2880 = 1440 km

Distance between CD = 1/6 x 2880 = 480 km

According to question,

Required distance = 2880 km

Hence answer is option D

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 48

Difference between travelling time of P and Q = 8 + 14 – 6 = 16 hours

So, travelling time of P = [2 / (3 – 2)] x 16 = 32 hours

Travelling time of Q = 32/2 x 3 = 48 hours

Distance between A and D = 32 x 90 = 2880 km

Ratio of distance between, AB, BC, and CD respectively = 2:3:1

Distance between AB = 2/6 x 2880 = 960 km

Distance between BC = 3/6 x 2880 = 1440 km

Distance between CD = 1/6 x 2880 = 480 km

Required time = 48 hours

Hence answer is option A

Average speed of P for overall journey is 90 km/h while of Q is 60 km/h.

If speed of P for covering BC is 100% more than that while covering CD, and time taken to travel CD is 4 hours less than that of BC. Find the speed of P while travelling from BC?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 49 Ratio of speed of P to Q = 90:60 = 3:2

Ratio of time taken = 2:3

Difference between travelling time of P and Q = 8 + 14 – 6 = 16 hours

So, travelling time of P = [2 / (3 – 2)] x 16 = 32 hours

Travelling time of Q = 32/2 x 3 = 48 hours

Distance between A and D = 32 x 90 = 2880 km

Ratio of distance between, AB, BC, and CD respectively = 2:3:1

Distance between AB = 2/6 x 2880 = 960 km

Distance between BC = 3/6 x 2880 = 1440 km

Distance between CD = 1/6 x 2880 = 480 km

Ratio of speed of P while covering BC and CD = 2:1

Ratio of distance between BC and CD = 3:1

Ratio of time taken = 3/2: 1/1 = 3:2

Time taken by P to cover BC = 3/ (3 – 2) x 4 = 12 hours

Required speed = 1440/12 = 120 km/h

The hundredth digit of n is 3 times the unit digit and the hundredth digit of n is 3 more than the tens digit.

⇒ x = 3z and x = y +3

Here we can observe that only 3 values of z are possible that are 1, 2 and 3

So, only three values of x are possible that are 3, 6 and 9 and three values of y are 0, 3 and 6

⇒ Three possible numbers are 301, 632 and 963

Statement II:

n is divisible by 7

Only 301 is divisible by 7 here.

So, 301 is the number and sum of digits = 4

∴ All three statements together are required to answer the question.

Hence, the correct option is (E).

There is a gambling point “KAVANDERS” in East Delhi. There are five gamblers – Arun, Raman, Rajjan, Brijesh and Aashu. They play a game called SATTE PE SATTA, includes two persons at a time. A game between two persons is called BAAJI. Each person plays one BAAJI with other person. If a person won the BAAJI, the owner of ‘KAVANDERS’ gives Rs. 8000 to a winner. If no result of a BAAJI, (called BHANCHAK) so owner of the gambling point, gives equal amount to both persons. Each BAAJI is of Rs. 8000. There is only two BHANCHAK in all BAAJI played between these five persons.

NOTE: We DON’T promote any kind of ‘GAMBLING’. It is simply a question.

The line graph given below shows the earnings of some pairs. (Out of five given persons)

Q. If Aashu won BAAJI against Raman, then Brijesh got BHANCHAK with _____.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 52 Arun + Raman = 48000

Arun + Rajjan = 32000

Arun + Aashu = 44000

Arun + Brijesh = 40000

On adding all, we get

4 x Arun + Raman + Rajjan + Aashu + Brijesh = 48000 + 32000 + 44000 + 40000 = 164000………………… (1)

Each person plays one BAAJI with another person, total number of BAAJI = 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 10

In each BAAJI, Owner Spends Rs. 8000

So,

Arun + Raman + Rajjan + Brijesh + Aashu = 10 x 8000 = 80000………... (2)

On solving both equations, we get

3 x Earnings of Arun = 164000 – 80000

Earnings of Arun = 84000/3 = 28000

So, Arun won three BAAJI and there is one BHANCHAK (3 x 8000 + 4000)

Earnings of Rajjan = 32000 – 28000 = 4000

So, no BAAJI won by Rajjan and there is one BHANCHAK.

Earning of Raman = 48000 – 28000 = 20000

So, Raman won two BAAJI and there is one BHANCHAK.

Earnings of Aashu = 44000 – 28000 = 16000

So, Aashu won 2 BAAJI.

Earnings of Brijesh = 40000 – 28000 = 12000

So, Brijesh won One BAAJI and there is one BHANCHAK.

If there is a BHANCHAK between Arun and Rajjan, and another BHANCHAK between Raman and Brijesh.

If there is BHANCHAK Between Arun and Raman, and another BHANCHAK between Brijesh and Rajjan

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 56

Direction: The following questions have three statements. Study the question and the statements and decide which of the statement(s) is/are necessary to answer the question.

A person borrowed some money at compound interest for 2 years. What will be the amount required to return after 2 years?

Statements:

I. The ratio of principal and the amount of simple interest of 2 years is 25 : 3.

II. If the amount was borrowed at simple interest, then after 5 years Rs 720 was required to pay as simple interest.

III. The rate of interest is 6% per annum.

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 56 Statement I

P : (SI for 2 years) = 25 : 3

⇒ r = 6%

Statement III:

r = 6%

Statement II:

Using the value of r (Either from statement I or from statement III), we can get the value of P.

Then using P and r, we can get the amount required to return after 2 years at compound interest.

∴ Either statement I or III and statement II are required to answer the question.

Hence, the correct option is (C).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 58

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

The man has three daughters- Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka. Priyanka is ..A….. years younger to Rakhi and Rakhi is younger to Vibha by the same. The man was planning to invest for her daughters in a monthly scheme. According to this scheme if the man invests for 5-10 years, he will get 2 times the money invested in total while if he invests for 10-15 years, he will get 3 times the total money invested. If the man invests for more than 15 years (maximum possible investment tenure is 18 years), he will get 3.5 times of total money invested. The plan starts from 1st January and ends on 31st December such that it matures on 31st December of the year when the girl turns 18. The man planned to invest in a ratio 25:32:20 for his daughters Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka respectively. Sum of the amount invested for Rakhi and Vibha is Rs 14250 per month. Difference in amount at maturity between Rakhi and Priyanka is …..B…..Vibha and Rakhi get 3 times of the total money invested while Priyanka gets 3.5 times of the money invested. Vibha plans to buy a house whose 40% payment will be through the amount that she gets at maturity. Cost of the house is Rs ……..C……At the time of investing, Rakhi’s age is less than 5 years, while Priyanka’s age was not 1 year. Maturity value that Priyanka gets is ……D…… less than what Vibha gets. If the total amount invested by the father on his three daughters was invested at once and he was to get 10% SI on the investment, the maturity value after 10 years of investment would be…..E……

Note:- Vibha age is not less than 5 Years.

Q. The annual budget of a company was equal to Rs E. Out of it, 15% was allotted for employee cost while 10% was allotted for capex. The company board proposed to increase the capex by 25% for next year while limitingthe employee expenses to 12% of annual budget for next year. The budget was also proposed to increase by 5%. What is the difference between the budget allocated for capex and employee expenses for next year?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 58 For age of the daughters, we have information:
  • Priyanka is as many years younger to Rakhi as Rakhi is younger to Vibha. Thus, Vibha is eldest while Priyanka is youngest.

  • Vibha and Rakhi get3 times of the total money invested while Priyanka gets 3.5 times of the money invested. Thus, for Vibha and Rakhi the man must have invested for 10-15 years while for Priyanka the man must have invested for more than 15 years. Thus, maximum possible age for Vibha is 8 years and minimum possible age for Priyanka=2

  • Rakhi’s age is less than 5 years while Priyanka’s age was not 1 year.

If Vibha = 8, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka=0, not possible

Vibha =7, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 1, not possible

Vibha = 6, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 2. Possible case

Vibha = 5, Rakhi = 4, Priyanka = 3, not possible.

Thus, at the time of investing, Vibha’s age = 6 yrs, Rakhi’s age = 4 years and Priyanka’s age = 2 years

⇒ A = 2

The man planned to invest in a ratio 25:32:20 for his daughters Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka respectively. Sum of the amount invested for Rakhi and Vibha is Rs 14250 per month.

Let the amount invested per month for Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka be 25x, 32x and 20x respectively

⇒ 57x = 14250

⇒ x = 250

Investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250 per month (for 14 years)

Investment for Vibha = Rs 8000 per month (for 12 years)

Investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000 per month (for 16 years)

Total investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250*12*14 = Rs 1050000

Total investment for Vibha = Rs 8000*12*12 = Rs 1152000

Total investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000*12*16 = Rs 960000

Maturity Value for Rakhi = Rs 3150000

Maturity Value for Vibha = Rs 3456000

Maturity Value for Priyanka = Rs 3360000

⇒ B = Difference in maturity value for Rakhi and Priyanka = Rs 2,10,000

D = Difference in maturity value for Vibha and Priyanka = Rs 96000

Vibha’s maturity value is 40% of cost of house

⇒ C = Cost of house = Rs 3456000/0.4 = Rs 86,40,000

Total investment of the man for all his daughters = Rs 31,62,000

At 10% SI for 10 years, the money will get doubled at the end of 10th year

⇒ E = 2*3162000 = Rs 63,24,000

Annual budget of the company in present year = Rs E = Rs 6324000

Capex cost = 10% of Rs 6324000 = Rs 632400

Employee cost = 15% of Rs 6324000 = Rs 948600

Capex for next financial year = 1.25*Rs 632400 = Rs 790500

Budget for next financial year = 1.05*6324000 = Rs 6640200

Employee expenses in next financial year = 12% of Rs 6640200 = Rs 796824

Thus, the required difference = Rs 796824 - Rs 790500 = Rs 6324

Q. After some years, Vibha planned to renovate her house. The painting cost 7.5% of the cost of the house. The labor cost is 20% of the cost of painting. Vibha gets a quote from another contractor who offers to renovate her house in 10% less than the 1st quote and labor cost is equal to 17.5% of the cost of painting. What is the difference of painting cost and labor cost with respect to the two quotes that Vibha gets?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 59 For age of the daughters, we have information:
  • Priyanka is as many years younger to Rakhi as Rakhi is younger to Vibha. Thus, Vibha is eldest while Priyanka is youngest.

  • Vibha and Rakhi get3 times of the total money invested while Priyanka gets 3.5 times of the money invested. Thus, for Vibha and Rakhi the man must have invested for 10-15 years while for Priyanka the man must have invested for more than 15 years. Thus, maximum possible age for Vibha is 8 years and minimum possible age for Priyanka=2

  • Rakhi’s age is less than 5 years while Priyanka’s age was not 1 year.

If Vibha = 8, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka=0, not possible

Vibha =7, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 1, not possible

Vibha = 6, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 2. Possible case

Vibha = 5, Rakhi = 4, Priyanka = 3, not possible.

Thus, at the time of investing, Vibha’s age = 6 yrs, Rakhi’s age = 4 years and Priyanka’s age = 2 years

⇒ A = 2

The man planned to invest in a ratio 25:32:20 for his daughters Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka respectively. Sum of the amount invested for Rakhi and Vibha is Rs 14250 per month.

Let the amount invested per month for Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka be 25x, 32x and 20x respectively

⇒ 57x = 14250

⇒ x = 250

Investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250 per month (for 14 years)

Investment for Vibha = Rs 8000 per month (for 12 years)

Investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000 per month (for 16 years)

Total investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250*12*14 = Rs 1050000

Total investment for Vibha = Rs 8000*12*12 = Rs 1152000

Total investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000*12*16 = Rs 960000

Maturity Value for Rakhi = Rs 3150000

Maturity Value for Vibha = Rs 3456000

Maturity Value for Priyanka = Rs 3360000

⇒ B = Difference in maturity value for Rakhi and Priyanka = Rs 2,10,000

D = Difference in maturity value for Vibha and Priyanka = Rs 96000

Vibha’s maturity value is 40% of cost of house

⇒ C = Cost of house = Rs 3456000/0.4 = Rs 86,40,000

Total investment of the man for all his daughters = Rs 31,62,000

At 10% SI for 10 years, the money will get doubled at the end of 10th year

⇒ E = 2*3162000 = Rs 63,24,000

Cost of house = 8640000

Painting cost w.r.t to 1st quote = 7.5% of 8640000 = Rs 648000

Painting cost w.r.t to 2nd quote = 0.9*648000 = Rs 583200

Difference between two costs = Rs 64800

Now, labor cost w.r.t to 1st quote = 20% of Rs 648000 = Rs 129600

Labor cost w.r.t to 2nd quote = 17.5% of Rs 583200 = Rs 102060

Difference between the two labor costs = Rs 27540

The third friend pulled out his capital and profits both at the end of the 1st year and invested the money in a scheme with 10% annual return (compounded yearly). What is the capital with the third friend at the end of 3rd year?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 60 For age of the daughters, we have information:
  • Priyanka is as many years younger to Rakhi as Rakhi is younger to Vibha. Thus, Vibha is eldest while Priyanka is youngest.

  • Vibha and Rakhi get3 times of the total money invested while Priyanka gets 3.5 times of the money invested. Thus, for Vibha and Rakhi the man must have invested for 10-15 years while for Priyanka the man must have invested for more than 15 years. Thus, maximum possible age for Vibha is 8 years and minimum possible age for Priyanka=2

  • Rakhi’s age is less than 5 years while Priyanka’s age was not 1 year.

If Vibha = 8, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka=0, not possible

Vibha =7, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 1, not possible

Vibha = 6, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 2. Possible case

Vibha = 5, Rakhi = 4, Priyanka = 3, not possible.

Thus, at the time of investing, Vibha’s age = 6 yrs, Rakhi’s age = 4 years and Priyanka’s age = 2 years

⇒ A = 2

The man planned to invest in a ratio 25:32:20 for his daughters Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka respectively. Sum of the amount invested for Rakhi and Vibha is Rs 14250 per month.

Let the amount invested per month for Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka be 25x, 32x and 20x respectively

⇒ 57x = 14250

⇒ x = 250

Investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250 per month (for 14 years)

Investment for Vibha = Rs 8000 per month (for 12 years)

Investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000 per month (for 16 years)

Total investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250*12*14 = Rs 1050000

Total investment for Vibha = Rs 8000*12*12 = Rs 1152000

Total investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000*12*16 = Rs 960000

Maturity Value for Rakhi = Rs 3150000

Maturity Value for Vibha = Rs 3456000

Maturity Value for Priyanka = Rs 3360000

⇒ B = Difference in maturity value for Rakhi and Priyanka = Rs 2,10,000

D = Difference in maturity value for Vibha and Priyanka = Rs 96000

Vibha’s maturity value is 40% of cost of house

⇒ C = Cost of house = Rs 3456000/0.4 = Rs 86,40,000

Total investment of the man for all his daughters = Rs 31,62,000

At 10% SI for 10 years, the money will get doubled at the end of 10th year

⇒ E = 2*3162000 = Rs 63,24,000

Total money invested = 3B + 4D =3*210000+4*96000 = Rs 10,14,000

The friends invested money in ratio (A+3):(A+2):(2A+3) i.e.,5:4:7

Thus, share of 3rd friend in the invested capital = 7/16*1014000 = Rs 4,43,625

Total profit at end of the year = Rs 64576

Share of 3rd friend in total profit = 7/16*64576 = Rs 28252

⇒ Total capital with the 3rd friend at the end of 3rd year = 443625+28252 = Rs 471877

He invested the money at 10% returns compounded annually.

Thus, capital at the end of 3rd year = (1+10/100)2*471877 = Rs 570971

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

The man has three daughters- Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka. Priyanka is ..A….. years younger to Rakhi and Rakhi is younger to Vibha by the same. The man was planning to invest for her daughters in a monthly scheme. According to this scheme if the man invests for 5-10 years, he will get 2 times the money invested in total while if he invests for 10-15 years, he will get 3 times the total money invested. If the man invests for more than 15 years (maximum possible investment tenure is 18 years), he will get 3.5 times of total money invested. The plan starts from 1st January and ends on 31st December such that it matures on 31st December of the year when the girl turns 18. The man planned to invest in a ratio 25:32:20 for his daughters Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka respectively. Sum of the amount invested for Rakhi and Vibha is Rs 14250 per month. Difference in amount at maturity between Rakhi and Priyanka is …..B…..Vibha and Rakhi get 3 times of the total money invested while Priyanka gets 3.5 times of the money invested.

If the total amount invested by the father on his three daughters was invested at once and he was to get 10% SI on the investment, the maturity value after 10 years of investment would be…..E……

Note:- Vibha age is not less than 5 Years.

Q. 3A men and 4A-2 women can finish a work in 4.5 days while 5A-1 men and 4A+1 women can finish the work in 3 days. If one man and women alternately do the work, on which day the work will get finished?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 61 For age of the daughters, we have information:
  • Priyanka is as many years younger to Rakhi as Rakhi is younger to Vibha. Thus, Vibha is eldest while Priyanka is youngest.

  • Vibha and Rakhi get3 times of the total money invested while Priyanka gets 3.5 times of the money invested. Thus, for Vibha and Rakhi the man must have invested for 10-15 years while for Priyanka the man must have invested for more than 15 years. Thus, maximum possible age for Vibha is 8 years and minimum possible age for Priyanka=2

  • Rakhi’s age is less than 5 years while Priyanka’s age was not 1 year.

If Vibha = 8, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka=0, not possible

Vibha =7, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 1, not possible

Vibha = 6, Rakhi = 4 and Priyanka = 2. Possible case

Vibha = 5, Rakhi = 4, Priyanka = 3, not possible.

Thus, at the time of investing, Vibha’s age = 6 yrs, Rakhi’s age = 4 years and Priyanka’s age = 2 years

⇒ A = 2

The man planned to invest in a ratio 25:32:20 for his daughters Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka respectively. Sum of the amount invested for Rakhi and Vibha is Rs 14250 per month.

Let the amount invested per month for Rakhi, Vibha and Priyanka be 25x, 32x and 20x respectively

⇒ 57x = 14250

⇒ x = 250

Investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250 per month (for 14 years)

Investment for Vibha = Rs 8000 per month (for 12 years)

Investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000 per month (for 16 years)

Total investment for Rakhi = Rs 6250*12*14 = Rs 1050000

Total investment for Vibha = Rs 8000*12*12 = Rs 1152000

Total investment for Priyanka = Rs 5000*12*16 = Rs 960000

Maturity Value for Rakhi = Rs 3150000

Maturity Value for Vibha = Rs 3456000

Maturity Value for Priyanka = Rs 3360000

⇒ B = Difference in maturity value for Rakhi and Priyanka = Rs 2,10,000

D = Difference in maturity value for Vibha and Priyanka = Rs 96000

Vibha’s maturity value is 40% of cost of house

⇒ C = Cost of house = Rs 3456000/0.4 = Rs 86,40,000

Total investment of the man for all his daughters = Rs 31,62,000

At 10% SI for 10 years, the money will get doubled at the end of 10th year

⇒ E = 2*3162000 = Rs 63,24,000

Let a man and a woman finish the work in ‘a’ and ‘b’ days respectively.

3A men and 4A-2 women can finish a work in 4.5 days i.e., 6 men and 6 women can finish the work in 5 days

⇒ 6/a+6/b=1/4.5

⇒27/a+27/b=1

Now, 5A-1 men and 4A+1 women can finish the work in 3 days i.e., 9 men and 9 women can finish the work in 3 days.

⇒ 9/a+9/b=1/3

⇒ 27/a+27/b=1

The two equations are the same and hence the data present in the question can’t be used to solve it.

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 62

Direction: Given below are three quantities named 1, 2 and 3. Based on the given information, you have to determine the relation among the three quantities. You should use the given data and knowledge of Mathematics to choose between the possible answer. The options represent the relations among three quantities.

A. <

B. >

C. ≤

D. ≥

E. =

Quantity 1: Find the next term.

12, 20, 28, 44, 52, (?)

Quantity 2: Find out the wrong number.

18, 48, 110, 180, 294

Quantity 3: Find the next term.

22, 30, 39, 49, (?)

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 62 Quantity 1

The above series is based on the given pattern,

4 × 3 = 12, 4 × 5 = 20, 4 × 7 = 28, 4 × 11 = 44, 4 × 13 = 52, 4 × 17 = 68

Quantity 2:

The series given is: 33 - 32, 43 - 42, 53 - 52, 63 - 62 and 73 - 72

= 18, 48, 100, 180, 294.

So, 110 is the wrong term.

Quantity 3:

The pattern followed is:

22 + 8 = 30

30 + 9 = 39

39 + 10 = 49

As we see, every time a digit is added to the previous digit and the difference between two subsequent added digits is of ‘1’.

Now the next will be:

49 + 11 = 60

So, Quantity 1 < Quantity 2 > Quantity 3

Hence, the correct option is (A).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 63

In the questions below consists of a question and three statements numbered I, II and III given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in all the three statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read all the statements and give answer –

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 63 From (I) & (II),

Let MP = 100 then CP = 110 & SP = 95

So loss% = (110-95)/95 × 100 = 15/95 × 100 = 300/19%

So answer can be determined by both (1) & (2).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 64

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

Four surfaces- a cube, a cuboid, a cylinder and a sphere are in consideration. The length of the cube is (2x-8) cm while its lateral surface area is 4(yz-4y) sq cm. The length and breadth of the cuboid is (x+y) cm and (y+z) cm respectively. Volume of the cuboid is (5xyz-688) cubic cm. The radius of the cylinder is x cm and its height is (z-3) cm. If it’s dimensions were reversed, the volume of the cylinder will become 3/2 times of its original volume. The radius of the sphere is (y+1) cm. If it was melted into smaller spheres of radius (x/2) cm, the number of spheres that would be formed is 27. The radius of both the smaller and larger spheres is more than 5 cm.

Q. The cuboid is cut into 22 parts along its breadth. What is the sum of the total surface area of the 22 parts?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 64 Length of the cube = 2x - 8

⇒ Lateral surface area of the cube = 4a2 = 4(2x - 8)2 = 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x)

⇒ 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x) = 4y (z - 4) ---------- (1)

Radius of cylinder = x

Height of cylinder = (z - 3)

Volume of the cylinder = π * x2 *(z - 3)

If the dimensions were reversed = π*(z - 3)2*x

Thus, π*(z - 3)2*x = 3/2* π*x2*(z - 3)

⇒ z - 3 = 3/2*x

⇒ z = (3x/2) + 3

Now, radius of sphere = y + 1 cm

Volume of sphere = 4π/3*(y + 1)3

Radius of smaller sphere = x/2

Volume of smaller sphere = 4π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ 4π/3*(y + 1)3 = 27*4 π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ y + 1 = 3(x/2) = 3x/2

⇒ y = (3x/2) -1

From equation (1) we get

4(4x2 + 64-32x) = 4y (z - 4) = 4(3x/2 - 1)(3x/2 + 3 - 4) = (3x - 2)2

⇒ 16x2 + 256 - 128x = 9x2 + 4 - 12x

⇒ 7x2 - 116x + 252 = 0

⇒ (x - 14)(7x - 18) = 0

⇒ x = 14 or x = 18/7

So, z = 3x/2+3 = 24 or 48/7

And, y = 3x/2-1 = 20 or 20/7. But y + 1 = 27/7<5

Thus, y = 20, x = 14 and z = 24

Now, length of cuboid = x + y = 14 + 20 = 34 cm

Breadth of cuboid = y + z = 20 + 24 = 44 cm

Volume of cuboid = 5xyz - 688 = 5*14*20*24 - 688 = 32912 cubic cm

Height of cuboid = 32912/34/44 = 22cm

Thus,

For cube, edge = 2x - 8 = 2*14 - 8 = 20 cm

For cuboid, length = 34 cm, breadth = 44 cm, heigh t= 22 cm

For cylinder, radius=14 cm, height = 24 - 3 = 21 cm

For smaller sphere, radius = 7 cm

For larger sphere, radius = 21 cm

For all the 22 parts, we have

Length = 34 cm

Height = 22 cm

Breadth = 2 cm

Total surface area of one part =2(lb+bh+hl) =2(34*2+2*22+34*22) = 1720 sq cm

Thus, total surface area of the cuboid = 22*1720 sq cm = 37840 sq cm

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 65

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

Four surfaces- a cube, a cuboid, a cylinder and a sphere are in consideration. The length of the cube is (2x-8) cm while its lateral surface area is 4(yz-4y) sq cm. The length and breadth of the cuboid is (x+y) cm and (y+z) cm respectively. Volume of the cuboid is (5xyz-688) cubic cm. The radius of the cylinder is x cm and its height is (z-3) cm. If it’s dimensions were reversed, the volume of the cylinder will become 3/2 times of its original volume. The radius of the sphere is (y+1) cm. If it was melted into smaller spheres of radius (x/2) cm, the number of spheres that would be formed is 27. The radius of both the smaller and larger spheres is more than 5 cm.

Q. What is the height of the cone of maximum volume that can be inscribed into the larger sphere?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 65 Length of the cube = 2x - 8

⇒ Lateral surface area of the cube = 4a2 = 4(2x - 8)2 = 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x)

⇒ 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x) = 4y (z - 4) ---------- (1)

Radius of cylinder = x

Height of cylinder = (z - 3)

Volume of the cylinder = π * x2 *(z - 3)

If the dimensions were reversed = π*(z - 3)2*x

Thus, π*(z - 3)2*x = 3/2* π*x2*(z - 3)

⇒ z - 3 = 3/2*x

⇒ z = (3x/2) + 3

Now, radius of sphere = y + 1 cm

Volume of sphere = 4π/3*(y + 1)3

Radius of smaller sphere = x/2

Volume of smaller sphere = 4π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ 4π/3*(y + 1)3 = 27*4 π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ y + 1 = 3(x/2) = 3x/2

⇒ y = (3x/2) -1

From equation (1) we get

4(4x2 + 64-32x) = 4y (z - 4) = 4(3x/2 - 1)(3x/2 + 3 - 4) = (3x - 2)2

⇒ 16x2 + 256 - 128x = 9x2 + 4 - 12x

⇒ 7x2 - 116x + 252 = 0

⇒ (x - 14)(7x - 18) = 0

⇒ x = 14 or x = 18/7

So, z = 3x/2+3 = 24 or 48/7

And, y = 3x/2-1 = 20 or 20/7. But y + 1 = 27/7<5

Thus, y = 20, x = 14 and z = 24

Now, length of cuboid = x + y = 14 + 20 = 34 cm

Breadth of cuboid = y + z = 20 + 24 = 44 cm

Volume of cuboid = 5xyz - 688 = 5*14*20*24 - 688 = 32912 cubic cm

Height of cuboid = 32912/34/44 = 22cm

Thus,

For cube, edge = 2x - 8 = 2*14 - 8 = 20 cm

For cuboid, length = 34 cm, breadth = 44 cm, heigh t= 22 cm

For cylinder, radius=14 cm, height = 24 - 3 = 21 cm

For smaller sphere, radius = 7 cm

For larger sphere, radius = 21 cm

The cone of maximum area will be in the form of an equilateral triangle. The ratio of height of the cone with the radius of the sphere is 4:3.

Radius of sphere = 21 cm

⇒ Height of the cone of maximum volume = 4/3*21 = 28 cm

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 66

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

Four surfaces- a cube, a cuboid, a cylinder and a sphere are in consideration. The length of the cube is (2x-8) cm while its lateral surface area is 4(yz-4y) sq cm. The length and breadth of the cuboid is (x+y) cm and (y+z) cm respectively. Volume of the cuboid is (5xyz-688) cubic cm. The radius of the cylinder is x cm and its height is (z-3) cm. If it’s dimensions were reversed, the volume of the cylinder will become 3/2 times of its original volume. The radius of the sphere is (y+1) cm. If it was melted into smaller spheres of radius (x/2) cm, the number of spheres that would be formed is 27. The radius of both the smaller and larger spheres is more than 5 cm.

Q. Which of the following surfaces have maximum total surface area?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 66 Length of the cube = 2x - 8

⇒ Lateral surface area of the cube = 4a2 = 4(2x - 8)2 = 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x)

⇒ 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x) = 4y (z - 4) ---------- (1)

Radius of cylinder = x

Height of cylinder = (z - 3)

Volume of the cylinder = π * x2 *(z - 3)

If the dimensions were reversed = π*(z - 3)2*x

Thus, π*(z - 3)2*x = 3/2* π*x2*(z - 3)

⇒ z - 3 = 3/2*x

⇒ z = (3x/2) + 3

Now, radius of sphere = y + 1 cm

Volume of sphere = 4π/3*(y + 1)3

Radius of smaller sphere = x/2

Volume of smaller sphere = 4π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ 4π/3*(y + 1)3 = 27*4 π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ y + 1 = 3(x/2) = 3x/2

⇒ y = (3x/2) -1

From equation (1) we get

4(4x2 + 64-32x) = 4y (z - 4) = 4(3x/2 - 1)(3x/2 + 3 - 4) = (3x - 2)2

⇒ 16x2 + 256 - 128x = 9x2 + 4 - 12x

⇒ 7x2 - 116x + 252 = 0

⇒ (x - 14)(7x - 18) = 0

⇒ x = 14 or x = 18/7

So, z = 3x/2+3 = 24 or 48/7

And, y = 3x/2-1 = 20 or 20/7. But y + 1 = 27/7<5

Thus, y = 20, x = 14 and z = 24

Now, length of cuboid = x + y = 14 + 20 = 34 cm

Breadth of cuboid = y + z = 20 + 24 = 44 cm

Volume of cuboid = 5xyz - 688 = 5*14*20*24 - 688 = 32912 cubic cm

Height of cuboid = 32912/34/44 = 22cm

Thus,

For cube, edge = 2x - 8 = 2*14 - 8 = 20 cm

For cuboid, length = 34 cm, breadth = 44 cm, heigh t= 22 cm

For cylinder, radius=14 cm, height = 24 - 3 = 21 cm

For smaller sphere, radius = 7 cm

For larger sphere, radius = 21 cm

For A, we have

Lateral surface area of the surface = xy + 3x + z2 + 12y + 62

= 14*20 + 3*14 + 242 + 12*20 + 62 =1200

⇒ 4*area of base = 1200

⇒ Area of base = 300 sq cm

⇒ Total surface area of the cube=6*area of base=6*300=1800 sq cm

For B, we have

Radius of hemisphere = (x+y+z+5)/3= (14+20+24+5)/3 = 21 cm

Total surface area of the hemisphere=3 π*21*21 = 4158 sq cm

For C, we have

Radius of the cone= y2/(2x-12)=20*20/(28-12) = 25 cm

Height of the cone = z + 1 = 25 cm

⇒ Slant height of the cone=√(252 +252) = 25√2 cm

Total Surface area of the cone = π*radius2 + π*radius*slant height = π*252+ π*25*25√2 = 1964.28+2777.919 = 4742.204 sq cm

For D, we have

Radius of cylinder = 3x - z = 3*14 - 24 = 18 cm

Volume of the cylinder = z3 + y3 - 440 = 243 + 203 - 440 = 21384 cubic cm

Area of base = π*18*18 = 324 π sq cm

Height of the cylinder = Volume of the cylinder/Area of base = 21384/324 π = 21 cm

⇒ Total surface area of the cylinder = 2*area of base +2 π*radius*height = 2 π*182 + 2 π*18*21 = 2036.57 + 2376 = 4412.57 sq cm

Thus, total surface area of the cone is maximum

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 67

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

Four surfaces- a cube, a cuboid, a cylinder and a sphere are in consideration. The length of the cube is (2x-8) cm while its lateral surface area is 4(yz-4y) sq cm. The length and breadth of the cuboid is (x+y) cm and (y+z) cm respectively. Volume of the cuboid is (5xyz-688) cubic cm. The radius of the cylinder is x cm and its height is (z-3) cm. If it’s dimensions were reversed, the volume of the cylinder will become 3/2 times of its original volume. The radius of the sphere is (y+1) cm. If it was melted into smaller spheres of radius (x/2) cm, the number of spheres that would be formed is 27. The radius of both the smaller and larger spheres is more than 5 cm.

Q. What is the length of the rod of maximum length that can be inserted into the cube without disturbing its dimensions?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 67 Length of the cube = 2x - 8

⇒ Lateral surface area of the cube = 4a2 = 4(2x - 8)2 = 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x)

⇒ 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x) = 4y (z - 4) ---------- (1)

Radius of cylinder = x

Height of cylinder = (z - 3)

Volume of the cylinder = π * x2 *(z - 3)

If the dimensions were reversed = π*(z - 3)2*x

Thus, π*(z - 3)2*x = 3/2* π*x2*(z - 3)

⇒ z - 3 = 3/2*x

⇒ z = (3x/2) + 3

Now, radius of sphere = y + 1 cm

Volume of sphere = 4π/3*(y + 1)3

Radius of smaller sphere = x/2

Volume of smaller sphere = 4π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ 4π/3*(y + 1)3 = 27*4 π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ y + 1 = 3(x/2) = 3x/2

⇒ y = (3x/2) -1

From equation (1) we get

4(4x2 + 64-32x) = 4y (z - 4) = 4(3x/2 - 1)(3x/2 + 3 - 4) = (3x - 2)2

⇒ 16x2 + 256 - 128x = 9x2 + 4 - 12x

⇒ 7x2 - 116x + 252 = 0

⇒ (x - 14)(7x - 18) = 0

⇒ x = 14 or x = 18/7

So, z = 3x/2+3 = 24 or 48/7

And, y = 3x/2-1 = 20 or 20/7. But y + 1 = 27/7<5

Thus, y = 20, x = 14 and z = 24

Now, length of cuboid = x + y = 14 + 20 = 34 cm

Breadth of cuboid = y + z = 20 + 24 = 44 cm

Volume of cuboid = 5xyz - 688 = 5*14*20*24 - 688 = 32912 cubic cm

Height of cuboid = 32912/34/44 = 22cm

Thus,

For cube, edge = 2x - 8 = 2*14 - 8 = 20 cm

For cuboid, length = 34 cm, breadth = 44 cm, heigh t= 22 cm

For cylinder, radius=14 cm, height = 24 - 3 = 21 cm

For smaller sphere, radius = 7 cm

For larger sphere, radius = 21 cm

Length of rod of maximum length that can be inserted = √3*edge length = 20√3 cm

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 68

Read the following information carefully and answer the questions based on it.

Four surfaces- a cube, a cuboid, a cylinder and a sphere are in consideration. The length of the cube is (2x-8) cm while its lateral surface area is 4(yz-4y) sq cm. The length and breadth of the cuboid is (x+y) cm and (y+z) cm respectively. Volume of the cuboid is (5xyz-688) cubic cm. The radius of the cylinder is x cm and its height is (z-3) cm. If it’s dimensions were reversed, the volume of the cylinder will become 3/2 times of its original volume. The radius of the sphere is (y+1) cm. If it was melted into smaller spheres of radius (x/2) cm, the number of spheres that would be formed is 27. The radius of both the smaller and larger spheres is more than 5 cm.

Q. A hemi-sphere of radius (2x-3) cm was melted into small bullets of radius x/10 cm and length y/125 cm. What is the maximum number of bullets that can be made?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 68 Length of the cube = 2x - 8

⇒ Lateral surface area of the cube = 4a2 = 4(2x - 8)2 = 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x)

⇒ 4(4x2 + 64 - 32x) = 4y (z - 4) ---------- (1)

Radius of cylinder = x

Height of cylinder = (z - 3)

Volume of the cylinder = π * x2 *(z - 3)

If the dimensions were reversed = π*(z - 3)2*x

Thus, π*(z - 3)2*x = 3/2* π*x2*(z - 3)

⇒ z - 3 = 3/2*x

⇒ z = (3x/2) + 3

Now, radius of sphere = y + 1 cm

Volume of sphere = 4π/3*(y + 1)3

Radius of smaller sphere = x/2

Volume of smaller sphere = 4π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ 4π/3*(y + 1)3 = 27*4 π/3*(x/2)3

⇒ y + 1 = 3(x/2) = 3x/2

⇒ y = (3x/2) -1

From equation (1) we get

4(4x2 + 64-32x) = 4y (z - 4) = 4(3x/2 - 1)(3x/2 + 3 - 4) = (3x - 2)2

⇒ 16x2 + 256 - 128x = 9x2 + 4 - 12x

⇒ 7x2 - 116x + 252 = 0

⇒ (x - 14)(7x - 18) = 0

⇒ x = 14 or x = 18/7

So, z = 3x/2+3 = 24 or 48/7

And, y = 3x/2-1 = 20 or 20/7. But y + 1 = 27/7<5

Thus, y = 20, x = 14 and z = 24

Now, length of cuboid = x + y = 14 + 20 = 34 cm

Breadth of cuboid = y + z = 20 + 24 = 44 cm

Volume of cuboid = 5xyz - 688 = 5*14*20*24 - 688 = 32912 cubic cm

Height of cuboid = 32912/34/44 = 22cm

Thus,

For cube, edge = 2x - 8 = 2*14 - 8 = 20 cm

For cuboid, length = 34 cm, breadth = 44 cm, heigh t= 22 cm

For cylinder, radius=14 cm, height = 24 - 3 = 21 cm

For smaller sphere, radius = 7 cm

For larger sphere, radius = 21 cm

Radius of hemisphere = 2x - 3 = 2*14 - 3 = 25 cm

Volume of hemisphere = 2π/3*253 cubic cm

Radius of bullet=x/10 cm=14/10=1.4 cm

Length of bullet=y/125 cm=20/125 cm=0.16 cm

Volume of one smaller bullet=π*1.42*0.16 cubic cm

Number of bullets that can be made= (2π/3*253)/π*1.42*0.16=33216

Q. If the number of students in the classroom IX D is least possible, then find a minimum of how many students are there in classroom IV A such that the number of students in the classroom XI C and V C are equal and the number of students in the classroom VII A is 40?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 77 Let the number of students in each of the classes V C and IX C be = x

Now, least possible number of students in IX D = 10

Thus, the total number of students in classes IV A, V C and XI C is,

= (3 × 150) – (90 + 60 + 80 + 40 + 40 + 10 + 10)

= 450 – 330

= 120

As the number of students in each class is a multiple of 10.

So, x is a multiple of 10 and 2x is a multiple of 20.

Now, the minimum number of students in class IV A will be when x = 50

Thus, the minimum number of students in IV A is,

= 120 – 100 = 20

Hence, the required answer is = 20.

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 78

Direction: The given caselet shows the statistics of India’s literacy rate according to the 2011 census. Study the caselet and answer the questions that follow.

The literacy rate is the basic and an important measure to indicate the development in a developing nation like India. It indicates the quality of life and the level of skill and awareness in the people of the nation. Higher level of literacy leads to awareness and improves the social and economic conditions of the country. The effective literacy rate in India is computed relating the population with 7 years of age and above, that can read and write with understanding, while the crude literacy rate is computed relating the total population of the country. According to the 2011 census of India, India’s literacy rate is reported as 74.04%, in which the female literacy rate is 65.46% and the male literacy rate is 82.14%. The adult literacy rate (above the age of 15 years) for males is 78.8%, while that of females is 59.3%. From the year 2001, the female literacy rate has increased by 22% and that of male has increased by 9%, indicating the narrowing of gender gap, thereby, providing an increment of 14% in the total literacy rate. Out of 35 states and union territories, only 3 states have a literacy rate higher than 90%, in which Kerala has the highest literacy rate of 94%, followed by Lakshadweep and Mizoram with a literacy rate of 91.8% and 91.3% respectively. 14 states have a literacy rate higher than 80%, while only 8 states have a literacy rate below 70%, with Bihar having the lowest literacy rate of 61.8%. The highest male and the female literacy rate of 96.1% and 92.1% respectively is also reported from the state of Kerala.

Q. If the female literacy rate in 1951 was 8.86%, by how much percentage has it increased from 1951 to 2001?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 78 Female literacy rate in 2011 = 65.46%

Increment from 2001 = 22%

⇒ (100 + 22)% of (Female literacy rate in 2001) = female literacy rate in 2011

⇒ Female literacy rate in 2001 = 65.46/1.22 = 53.66%

Let the percentage increment from 1951 to 2001 be x%

⇒ (100 + x)% of (Female literacy rate in 1951) = female literacy rate in 2001

⇒ 100 + x = 6.055 × 100

⇒ x = 605.5 – 100 = 505.5%

∴ From 1951 to 2001, the female literacy rate has increased by 505.5%

Hence, the correct option is (A).

Q. By how much percentage has the gender gap in the literacy rate declined from 2001 to 2011?

Detailed Solution for SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 80 Female literacy rate in 2011 = 65.46%

Increment from 2001 = 22%

⇒ (100 + 22)% of (Female literacy rate in 2001) = female literacy rate in 2011

⇒ Female literacy rate in 2001 = 65.46/1.22 = 53.66%

Male literacy rate in 2011 = 82.14%

Increment from 2001 = 9%

⇒ (100 + 9)% of (male literacy rate in 2001) = male literacy rate in 2011

⇒ Male literacy rate in 2001 = 82.14/1.09 = 75.36%

Gender gap in 2001 = 75.36 – 53.66 = 21.7

Gender gap in 2011 = 82.14 – 65.46 = 16.68

∴ Percentage decline in gender gap

Hence, the correct option is (D).

SBI PO Mains Mock Test - 3 - Question 125

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/ Phrases have been printed in underline to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

India’s law governing motor vehicles and transport is archaic, lacking the provisions necessary to manage fast motorisation. The lacunae in the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, require to be addressed to improve road safety, ensure orderly use of vehicles and expand public transport. The Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, passed by the Lok Sabha last year, seeks to do this, but it has now run into opposition in the Rajya Sabha because of its perceived shift of power from the States to the Centre. The issue is not one of legislative competence; as the subject is in the Concurrent List, Parliament can make a law defining powers available to the States. Some State governments are concerned about the new provisions, Sections 66A and 88A, which will empower the Centre to form a National Transportation Policy through a process of consultation, and not concurrence. The changes will also enable Centrally-drafted schemes to be issued for national, multi-modal and inter-State movement of goods and passengers, for rural mobility and even last-mile connectivity. Since all this represents a new paradigm that would shake up the sector, several States have opposed the provisions as being anti-federal. Doing nothing, however, is no longer an option. The passenger transport sector operating within cities and providing inter-city services has grown amorphously, with vested interests exploiting the lack of transparency and regulatory bottlenecks. With a transparent system, professional new entrants can enter the sector. As things stand, State-run services have not kept pace with the times. Major investments made in the urban metro rail systems are yielding poor results in the absence of last-mile connectivity services.

Creating an equitable regulatory framework for the orderly growth of services is critical. This could be achieved through changes to the MV Act that set benchmarks for States. Enabling well-run bus services to operate across States with suitable permit charges is an imperative to meet the needs of a growing economy. Regulatory changes introduced in Europe over the past few years for bus services have fostered competition, reduced fares and increased services operating across European Union member-states. Other aspects of the proposed amendments deal with road safety. These, however, are likely to achieve little without strong enforcement by the States. The effort to curb institutionalised corruption at Regional Transport Offices by making it possible for dealers to directly register new vehicles, and enabling online applications for driving licences is welcome. Care is needed to see that other measures, such as sharply enhancing fines for rule violations, do not only result in greater harassment. It is the certainty of enforcement, zero tolerance and escalating penalties that will really work. There are some new provisions to harness technology, including CCTV monitoring, to improve road safety, but these cannot produce results when there is no professional accident investigation agency to determine best practices.

The changes will also enable Centrally-drafted schemes to be issued for national, multi-modal and inter-State movement of goods and passengers, for rural mobility and even last-mile connectivity. Since all this represents a new paradigm that would shake up the sector, several States have opposed the provisions as being anti-federal. Doing nothing, however, is no longer an option. The passenger transport sector operating within cities and providing inter-city services has grown amorphously, with vested interests exploiting the lack of transparency and regulatory bottlenecks. With a transparent system, professional new entrants can enter the sector. As things stand, State-run services have not kept pace with the times. Major investments made in the urban metro rail systems are yielding poor results in the absence of last-mile connectivity services.

Creating an equitable regulatory framework for the orderly growth of services is critical. This could be achieved through changes to the MV Act that set benchmarks for States. Enabling well-run bus services to operate across States with suitable permit charges is an imperative to meet the needs of a growing economy. Regulatory changes introduced in Europe over the past few years for bus services have fostered competition, reduced fares and increased services operating across European Union member-states. Other aspects of the proposed amendments deal with road safety. These, however, are likely to achieve little without strong enforcement by the States. The effort to curb institutionalised corruption at Regional Transport Offices by making it possible for dealers to directly register new vehicles, and enabling online applications for driving licences is welcome. Care is needed to see that other measures, such as sharply enhancing fines for rule violations, do not only result in greater harassment. It is the certainty of enforcement, zero tolerance and escalating penalties that will really work. There are some new provisions to harness technology, including CCTV monitoring, to improve road safety, but these cannot produce results when there is no professional accident investigation agency to determine best practices.
