NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 1

### What is the maximum power of 10 in 125 ! ?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 1

Since 10 is not a prime number, we have to first find the maximum power of 2 and 5 in 125!.
Maximum power of 2 = Multiples of 2 in 125! + Multiples of 4 in 125! + Multiples of 8 in 125! + Multiples of 16 in 125! + Multiples of 32 in 125! + Multiples of 64 in 125!

Where [x] = Maximum integer less than or equal to x. = 62 + 31 + 15 + 7 + 3 + 1 = 119
Similarly the maximum power of 5

= 25 + 5 + 1 = 31
To get the number 10, we need one 2 and one 5.
As the number of 5's are lesser, the highest power of 10 in 125! will be 31.
Hence, option 5.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 2

### S is the set of all possible permutations of the letters of the word APPLE. In how many of these permutations does the letter A come before the letter P?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 2

A can take 4 places - first to fourth - to have a P after it.
Case 1: A is first i.e. A

There are 4 letters, out of which P is present twice.

∴ No. of permutations possible =

Case 2: A is second i . e . __A _______ Within this, there are two possibilities: 1) Both P’s are after A.
Here, one of L and E is also after A.
So, there are three letters after A i.e. P, P and E or L

∴ No. of permutations possible =

2) Exactly one P is after A.
Here, the letters after A are P, E and L, and there is no repetition.
∴ No. of permutations possible = 3! = 6
∴ Total no. of permutations when A is second = 6 + 6=12

Case 3: A is third i . e . ____ A _____ Again, within this, there are two possibilities: 1) Both P’s are after A.
Hence, L and E are before A, without any repetition.
These L and A can be arranged in 2! ways No. of permutations possible = 2! = 2 2) Exactly one P is after A.
So, one of L and E is before A and one is after A.
The two letters before A can be arranged in 2! ways.
Similarly, the two letters after A can also be arranged in 2! ways. Finally, L or E can be after A in another 2 ways.
∴No. of permutations possible = 2! *2! x 2 = 8

∴Total no. of permutations when A is third = 2 + 8 = 10 Case 4: A is fourth i . e . _______ A __

Now, exactly one P is after A.
So, the letters before A are P, L and E, without any repetition.
∴No. of permutations possible = 3! = 6

∴Total number of permutations = 12 + 12 + 10 + 6 = 40 Hence, option 5.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 3

### Answer the following question based on the information given below. The first table shows the birth rate and natural growth rate per thousand in a country. The second table shows the infant mortality rate. Natural growth rate = Birth rate - Death rate and Infant Mortality rate = number of infant deaths per thousand births Q. If the population of Maharashtra on 1st January, 2009 was 100 crores, what was the  population of Maharashtra on 31st December 2010 (in crores)?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 3

The natural growth rate gives the growth in population for every 1000 people. Natural growth rate for Maharashtra in 2009 = 17.4

∴ Population at the end of 2009 =

Natural growth rate for Maharashtra in 2010 = 17.3

∴ Population at the end of 2010 =

Hence, option 4.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 4

If an infant death is defined as the death of a child on the very day that it is bom, then approximately what percent of the total deaths in Maharashtra are infant deaths in the year 2009?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 4

In 2009, the growth rate in Maharashtra =17.4 per 1000

Birth rate = 26 per 1000
∴ Overall death rate = 26 - 17.4 = 8.6 per 1000
Infant mortality in Maharashtra in 2009 = 70 ∴ Infant mortality for 26 births on 1000 = (70 x 26)/1000 = 1.82

∴ Required percentage = (1.82/8.6) x 100 = 21.16%
Hence, option 3.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 5

Which of the following states recorded the highest percentage decrease in death rate over the entire period?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 5

The death rate for each state for each year is as shown below:

The death rate for Karnataka is the same in 2007 and 2010.
Hence, the percentage decrease for Karnataka is 0.

Observe that the death rate in West Bengal is greater than 10% while in the remaining states, it is less than 10%.

Hence, the greatest death rate is in West Bengal over the given period.

Hence, option 4.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 6

Which state never saw a decrease in birth rates over the given period?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 6

The birth rate in Tamil Nadu increased from 2007 to 2008 and then remained constant throughout. Hence, it never decreased.

The birth rate in each of the other states decreased atleast once.

Hence, option 2.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 7

Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below.
The chart below shows the income and expenditure (in Rs. crores) of a firm for four successive quarters in an year.

Q.

The profit earned by the firm in Q1 is invested at the start of Q2 in T-bills at simple interest at 8% per annum for three months. What is the total profit made by the firm (in Rs. crores) at the end of Q2?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 7

Total profit made by firm = profit made in Q1 + profit made in Q2 + interest income
Profit made in Q1 = 4.3 - 3.1 = Rs. 1.2 crores
Profit made in Q2 = 5.2 - 4.4 = Rs. 0.8 crores
Rs. 1.2 crores is invested at 8% per annum for 3 months

∴ Interestin come =

∴ Total profit = 1.2 + 0.8 + 0.024 = Rs. 2.024 crores
Hence, option 1

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 8

Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below.

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 8

Average quarterly income of previous year =

Average quarterly  expenditure of previous year =

∴ Profit in Q1 of next year = 4.375 - 3.525 = Rs. 0.85 crores

Hence, option 2.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 9

Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below.
The chart below shows the income and expenditure (in Rs. crores) of a firm for four successive quarters in an year.

Q.

What is the maximum percentage profit earned by the company in any of the given quarters?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 9

This question can be solved faster by observation.
Note that the income is less than expenditure in Q3. Hence, there is a percentage loss in
Q3. Hence, Q3 can be ignored in calculations.
Now, compare Q1 and Q4.
The income in Q4 is more than the income in Ql, while the expenditure in Q4 is less than the expenditure in Ql.
Hence, the percentage profit in Q4 is more than that in Ql and so, Ql can be ignored in calculations.

For Q2: percentage profit =

For Q4: percentage profit =

Thus, the maximum percentage profit is approximately 61%.
Hence, option 4.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 10

Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below.
The chart below shows the income and expenditure (in Rs. crores) of a firm for four successive quarters in an year.

Q.

What is the income (in Rs. crores) in Ql of the next year, if the expenditure in that quarter is the same as the expenditure in Q4 this year, while the percentage profit has gone up by 5 percentage points from Q4 this year?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 10

Expenditure in Ql of next year = expenditure in Q4 of this year = Rs. 2.8 crores From the solution to the previous question, percentage profit in Q4 this year = 60.71%
∴ Percentage profit in Ql next year = (60.71 + 5)% i.e. 65.71%.

Hence, option 2.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 11

Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below.
The chart below shows the income and expenditure (in Rs. crores) of a firm for four successive quarters in an year.

Q.

A circle of maximum area is cut out from a square cardboard of side a cm. The cardboard left is thrown away. Now, a right angled triangle is cut out from the circle such that all three vertices of the triangle lie on the circumference of the circle and touch the sides of the square. Again the cardboard left is thrown away. What is the ratio of the area of the triangular cardboard to the area of the cardboard that is thrown away?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 11

The given data can be represented as shown below:

Let the area of the square, circle and triangle be S, C and T respectively.
Area o f cardboard thrown away when the circle is cut = A - C
And, area o f cardboard thrown away when the triangle is cut = C - T
∴ Total area o f cardboard thrown away = A - C + C - T = A - T

Area of square =A = a2 sq.cm

Since all three vertices of the right triangle lie on the circle, the hypotenuse of the triangle is the same as the diameter of the circle (which in turn is the same as the side of the square i.e. a cm).

If the centre of the circle is joined to the third vertex of the triangle, it becomes the height of the triangle (as shown in the figure). The hypotenuse becomes the base of the triangle.

∴  Area of triangle =

∴ Required ratio =

Hence, option 4.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 12

Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below.
The chart below shows the income and expenditure (in Rs. crores) of a firm for four successive quarters in an year.

Q.

The weight of a circular disc is proportional to the square of the radius of the disc when the thickness of the disc is kept constant, whereas the weight of the disc is proportional to its thickness when the radius of the disc is kept constant.

What is the ratio of the radii of two circular discs, if their thicknesses are in the ratio 9 : 8 and their weights are in the ratio 2 : 1 ?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 12

Let w, r and t be the weight, radius and thickness of the circular disc respectively.
∴ w ∝ r2 x t

∴ w = k x r2 x t

∴ W1 = k x r12 x t

Hence, ratio of radius of two discs is 4 : 3.
Hence, option 2.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 13

∴  A + B + C + D + E + F + G + H + I = 1 0 * 9 = 630 ...(i)

Since the average age of the first four members is 64 years,

A + B + C + D = 6 4 x 4 = 256 ...(ii)

§jnce the average age of the last seven members is 80 years,

C + D + E + F + G + H + I = 80 x 7 = 560 ...(iii)

Subtracting (iii) from (i),

A + B = 70 ... (iv)
Subtracting (iv) from (ii),
C + D= 186

∴ Averageage of third and four the member =

Hence, option 3.

A boy plucked 15 mangoes in 4 days. On the first day, he plucked 4 mangoes. Find the number of mangoes that he plucked on each day (ignoring the order in which they were plucked), if he plucked at least one mango every day.

A. He plucked an odd number of mangoes on each of the remaining days.
B. He plucked an equal number of mangoes on no two days.

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 22

The boy picked 11 mangoes in the remaining 3 days.
Using statement A alone: The number of mangoes plucked could be (1, 1, 9), (1, 3, 7), (1, 5, 5) and (3, 3, 5).
Thus, the question cannot be answered using statement A alone.
Using statement B alone: The number of mangoes plucked could be (1, 3, 7), (1,2, 8) and so on.
Thus, the question cannot be answered using statement B alone.
Using both the statements together: When conditions are combined, (1, 3, 7) is the only combination satisfying both conditions.
Thus, the boy picked 1, 3 and 7 mangoes (in no particular order) on the remaining 3 days.

A. By selling x pens at Rs. x per pen, shopkeeper earns a profit of Rs. 150.
B. Pens are brought at Rs. x per gross and are sold at Rs. x/8 per pen. (1 gross = 12 pens)

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 24

Using statement A alone: Let the cost price of each pen be Rs. y.

∴ Profit = (x x x) - (x x y) = x2 - xy = Rs. 150

Since we don’t know the value of x, we cannot find the profit percent.
Thus, statement A alone is not sufficient to answer the question.
Using statement B alone: Cost price of 12 pens = Rs.

∴Cost price of one pen = Rs. x/12

Selling price of one pen = Rs. x/8

Thus, statement B alone is sufficient to answer the question.
Hence, option 2.

If p and m - 8 are positive integers, is p/m less than one?

A. p - m > 0

B.p < 8

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 26

(P/m)< 1 is possible when p < m .

Using statement A alone:

∴  p - m > 0

∴  p > m

∴  p/m > 1

Thus, p/m is not less than one.
Thus, the question can be answered using statement A alone. Using statement B alone:

p < 8 and m - 8 > 0

∴  m > 8

∴  p < m

∴ p/m < 1

Thus, the question can be answered using statement B alone.

Thus, the question can be answered using either statement alone.
Hence, option 3.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 27

Each question is followed by two statements, A and B. Answer each question using the following instructions: Mark option (1) if the question can be answered by using statement A alone but not by using statement B alone.
Mark option (2) if the question can be answered by using statement B alone but not by using statement A alone.

Mark option (5) if the question cannot be answered on the basis of the two statements. What is the value of the positive integer N.

A. Sum of all the factors of N, excluding itself, is 56.
B. The total number of factors A has is 4.

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 27

Statements A and B alone cannot give a unique solution.

Using both the statements, the number is in the form of (a1 x b1) or a3, where a and b are prime.

If the number is of the form a3, its factors will be 1, a, a2 and a3.

Therefore the number cannot be in the form of a3 since a2 + a + 1 = 56 does not have any integer solutions.

∴ The number is of the form a1x b1
Its factors are 1, a, b and ab.
Sum of the factors excluding N is given to be 56.

a + b = 56 - 1 = 55

∴ a and b should be two primes such that,

a + b = 55

∴ a = 2, b = 53

∴ N= 53 x 2 = 106

∴ Statements A and B together are together sufficient to answer the question.
Hence, option 4.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 28

What is the remainder when 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + ... + 55! is divided by 12?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 28

Remainder when (a + b + c) is divided by n = rem (a/n) + rem (bln) + rem (dn) x! = X x (x - 1) X (x - 2) x ... X 3 X 2 x 1 Thus, every term from 12! to 55! will have a ‘12’ in it. Thus, every term from 12! to 55! is divisible by 12.
Since 12 = 4 x 3 , any x! that has a term (4 x 3) in it will also be divisible by 12. 4! =4x 3x 2xl
Since every subsequent term from 4! to 11! will have a 4! in it, each term from 4! to 11! is divisible by 12.

∴ Required remainder = rem(l !/12) + rem (2!/12) + rem (3!/12) = rem(l/12) + rem (2/12) + rem (6/12) = 1 + 2 + 6
= 9
Hence, option 5.

Hence, option 2.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 30

Esha is 28 years old. She is twice as old as Ankita was when Esha was as old as Ankita is now. How old is Ankita now?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 30

Let the present age of Esha and Ankita be E and A years respectively.
Number of years between Esha’s current age and the age when she was as old as Ankita’s current age = E - A Ankita’s age when her age was reduced by this number = A - ( E - A ) = 2 A - E

∴ E = 2(2A-E)
i.e. 28 = 4A - 56

∴ 4A = 84
∴ A = 21

Hence, option 3.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 31

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 31

When the hour hand is ahead of the minute hand, the angle is positive and when the hour hand is behind the minute hand, the angle is negative.

∴ Difference between Raju and Shyam’s viewing = 36.72 - 6.91 30 minutes

Hence, option 2.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 32

There are 35 students in a hostel. If the number of students increases by 7, the expenses of the mess increase by Rs.42 per day while the average expenditure per head per week diminishes by Rs.7. What is the original weekly expenditure of the mess (in Rs.)?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 32

Let the average daily expenditure per student be Rs. a.

∴ Total weekly expenditure for 35 students = 35 x a x 7 = Rs. 245a Also, average expenditure per head per week = Rs. la

When the number of students increases by 7 to 42, average expenditure per head per week reduces by Rs. 7

∴ Total weekly expenditure for 42 students = 42 x (la - 7) = Rs. 294(a - 1)

However, it is also known that in the same case of 42 students , total expenditure increases compared to the previous case by Rs. 42 per day.

∴ Total weekly expenditure for 42 students as per this data = 245a + 42(7) = Rs. 49(5a + 6)
Equating the two, 294(a - 1) = 49(5a + 6)

∴  5a + 6 = 6(a - 1)

∴  a = 12

∴  Original weekly expenditure of the mess = 245 x 12 = Rs. 2,940

Hence, option 4.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 33

ABC is a right angled isosceles triangle such that AQ = QP = PC. If AC = 12 cm, find the value of:

where x is the radius of the circle.

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 33

Since AQ = QP = PC and AC = 12, AQ = QP = PC = 4 cm

Let the radius of the circle be jc cm as shown above.
Since OSBR forms a square, BR = BS = x cm

Also, AR2 = AQ.AP

∴ AR2 = 4(8) = 32

Since ΔAEC is a right isosceles triangle, AE = EC = x + 4√2

Hence, option 3.

A triangle ABC is such that a line from A on side BC meets BC at point P and divides it in the ratio 2 : 5 . Another line is drawn parallel to AP at a distance o f 2 units from it. This line touches BC at Q and divides it in the ratio 1:2. If B-P-Q as well as P-Q-C and Q is farther from C compared to B, what is the length of side BC?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 34

The data given in the question can be represented as shown below.

The order of B, P, Q and C is because B-P-Q and P-Q-C.
Based on the figure,

BP = 2x, PC = 5x, BQ =y and QC = 2y

BC = BP + PC = BQ + QC
∴ 2x + 5 x = y + 2y

∴3y-7x = 0 ...(i)

Since the two lines are drawn parallel to each other, PQ = 2 units ... QB - PB = 2

∴ y - 2x = 2

∴ 3 y - 6 x = 6 ...(ii)

Solving (i) and (ii), x = 6 and y = 14

∴ BC = lx = 42 units

Hence, option 1.

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 35

Let the price of 1 apple, 1 orange and 1 guava be x, y and z respectively.
∴ 3x + 5y + 7z = 317 ...(i)

2x + 3y + 4z=191 (ii)

We need to find the value of 7x + 11y + 15z

Multiplying equation (ii) by 2 and then adding to equation (i),

∴ 7x + Uy + 15z = 317 + 191 x 2 = 699

Hence, option 1.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 48

In the figure below, ΔPQR is an equilateral triangle of side 7 cm and radius of the circle is 3.5 cm. What is the ratio of area of the circle to that of the shaded region?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 3 - Question 48

Length of the diameter of the circle = 2 x 3.5 = 7 cm

Since the chord of maximum length is the diameter, QR passes through the centre of the circle.

Let O be the centre of the circle and the triangle intersects the circle at the points S and T.

Draw OS and OT.

In ΔQOS,

OQ = OS and m∠OQS = 60°

∴  ΔQOS is an equilateral triangle and OQ = 3.5 cm

Similarly, we can prove that ΔSOT and ΔTOR are equilateral triangles and since OQ = OS = OT = OR = 3.5 cm, ΔQOS, ASOT and ATOR are congruent.

A(n QRTS) = 3 x A(ΔOQS)

Area of shaded region = Area of semicircle - A(ΔQRTS)

Area of the circle
