SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 5

Which two numbers should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?

48 + 37 × 5 – 36 ÷ 12 = 274

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 5

Given : 48 + 37 × 5 – 36 ÷ 12 = 274

So, by interchanging the number according to question :

• Option - (1) : 37 and 48

​37 + 48 × 5 - 36 ÷ 12 = 274

37 + 48 × 5 - 3 = 274

37 + 240 - 3 = 274

277 - 3 = 274

274 = 274 (LHS = RHS)

• Option - (2) : 12 and 5

​48 + 37 × 12 - 36 ÷ 5 = 274

48 + 37 × 12 - 7.2 = 274

48 + 444 - 7.2 = 274

492 - 7.2 ≠ 274 (LHS ≠ RHS)

484.8 ≠ 274 (LHS ≠ RHS)

• Option - (3) : 12 and 36

​48 + 37 × 5 - 12 ÷ 36 = 274

48 + 37 × 5 - 0.33 = 274

48 + 185 - 0.33 = 274

233 - 0.33 = 274

232.67 ≠ 274 (LHS ≠ RHS)

• Option - (4) : 48 and 12

12 + 37 × 5 - 36 ÷ 48 = 274

12 + 37 × 5 - 0.75 = 274

12 + 185 - 0.75 = 274

197 - 0.75 = 274

196.25 ≠ 274 (LHS ≠ RHS)

Hence, "37 and 48" is the correct answer.

Interchanging the signs and using BODMAS rule,

Option (A) → +, -

104 ÷ 8 - 6 + 9 × 3 = 34

⇒ 13 - 6 + 9 × 3 = 34

⇒ 13 - 6 + 27 = 34

⇒ 40 - 6 = 34

⇒ 34 = 34

Option (B) → +, ×

104 ÷ 8 × 6 - 9 + 3 = 34

⇒ 13 × 6 - 9 + 3 = 34

⇒ 78 - 9 + 3 = 34

⇒ 72 ≠ 34

Option (C) → -, ×

104 ÷ 8 + 6 × 9 - 3 = 34

⇒ 13 + 6 × 9 - 3 = 34

⇒ 13 + 54 - 3 = 34

⇒ 64 ≠ 34

Option (D) → ÷, +

104 + 8 ÷ 6 - 9 × 3 = 34

⇒ 104 + 1.33 - 9 × 3 = 34

⇒ 104 + 1.33 - 27 = 34

⇒ 103.33 ≠ 34

On a certain principal if the simple interest for two years is Rs. 1400 and compound interest for the two years is Rs. 1449, what is the rate of Interest?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 51

Let the principal amount = Rs.100x

Rate of interest = r%

Time period = 2 years

Simple Interest

⇒ 2rx = 1400

Compound Interest

⇒ 7r + 1400 = 1449
⇒ 7r = 1449 - 1400 = 49

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 52
A pupil multiplied a figure by  rather than . What is the percentage error in the calculation?
Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 52

Given:

Wrong number multiplied =

Correct number should be multiplied =

Calculation:

Let the figure be 15a

So, the wrong number after multiplying = 15a × (3/5)

⇒ 9a

Correct number which should have get = 15a × (5/3)

⇒ 25a

Difference of error = 25a - 9a

⇒ 16a

% of error = (16a/25a) × 100

⇒ 64

So, error % = 64 %

∴ The percentage error in the calculation is 64.

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 53

A shopkeeper claims that he is selling rice at Rs.27/kg which cost him Rs.30/kg, but he gives 750 grams instead of 1000 grams. What is his profit or loss percentage?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 53

Given

Price at which he sells rice = 30Rs/kg

Price shopkeeper claims = 27Rs/kg

Quantity marked = 1000g

Quantity given = 750g

Formula used

Profit %

Calculation

The shopkeeper claims he is selling 1000g at price of 27Rs/kg=27Rs

But originally he uses 750g for 30Rs/kg = 22.5Rs

From the above, cost price = 22.5Rs

Selling price = 27Rs

Profit % =%

The total profit shopkeeper earned is 20%
Shortcut Trick

⇒ CP : SP = 30 × 750 : 27 × 1000 = 5 : 6
so profit = 6 - 5 = 1 P% = (1/5) × 100 = 20

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 56

In what ratio must a person mix two kinds of sugar costing Rs.85/kg and Rs.105/kg so that the resultant mixture when sold at Rs.108/kg yields a profit of 20%?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 56

Given:

Cost of the first type of sugar = Rs. 85/kg

Cost of the second type of sugar = Rs. 105/kg

The selling price of mixture = Rs. 108/kg

Profit percentage 0 20%

Formula used:

C.P S.P

The ratio between two variety of sugar be x : y

C.P Rs. Rs.

⇒ 85x + 105y = 90(x + y)
⇒ 85x + 105y = 90x + 90y
⇒ 5x = 15y
⇒ x = 3y
⇒ x = 3, y = 1

∴ The ratio in which two varieties of sugar should be mixed is 3:1

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 60

If the average of 3-digit numbers 235, 2x5, x35, 63x and 116 is 333, then what is the average of x + 1, x + 3 and x + 8 ?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 60

Given:

Average of 5 numbers = 333

Formula used:

Average of 'n' numbers = (Sum of 'n' numbers)/n

Calculation:

∵ Average of 5 numbers = 333

∴ Sum of all 5 numbers = 333 × 5

= 1665

⇒ 235 + 2x5 + x35 + 63x + 116 = 1665

⇒ 2x5 + x35 + 63x = 1665 - 235 - 116

⇒ 2x5 + x35 + 63x = 1314      ------(1)

∵ We need 4 at the unit digit.

∴ The sum of the unit digits of "2x5 + x35 + 63x" should have 4 as its unit digit.

∴ To make it 4, we need to add '4' to it. (5 + 5 + 4 = 14)

⇒ x = 4

Verify the value of 'x' by putting it in the equation (1)

⇒ 245 + 435 + 634 = 1314

∴ (x + 1) + (x + 8) + (x + 3) = 5 + 12 + 7

= 24

∴ Average of x + 1, x + 3 and x + 8

= 24/3

= 8

In ΔPQT, PQ = PT. The points R and S are on QT such that PR = PS. If ∠PTS = 62° and ∠RPS = 34°, then measure of ∠QPR is:

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 63

Given:

PQ = PT

PR = PS

∠PTS = 62°

∠RPS = 34°

Two sides of the triangle are equal thus,

∠PQT = ∠PTQ

⇒ ∠PTS = ∠PTQ

⇒ ∠PQT = 62°

In ΔPRS, PR = PS

⇒ ∠PRS = ∠PSR

⇒ ∠PRS

⇒ ∠PRS

⇒ ∠PRS = 73°

∠PRT = ∠QPR + ∠PQR  (Exterior angle)

∠QPR = ∠PRS - ∠PQT  [Exterior angle theorem]

⇒ ∠QPR = 73° - 62°

⇒ ∠QPR = 11°

∴ The measure of ∠QPR is 11°.

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 85

Direction: In this question, a sentence has been divided into four parts (A), (B), (C) and (D). Read the sentence to find out whether there is any grammatical error in it. The error if any, will be in one part of the sentence. Mark that part as your answer. Ignore the error of punctuation if any.

I was as eager (A)/ as the others (B)/ to hearing results, (C)/ but my mind shifted to the practical. (D)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 85

The correct sentence is: "I was as eager as the others to hear results, but my mind shifted to the practical."

The present continuous tense hearing used in part (C) is incorrect. We don't use the present continuous with some verbs, for example - verbs expressing feelings, describing senses, mental process verbs. The sentence can be made correct if we use the simple present tense hear.

Therefore the error lies in part (C) of the sentence.
