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

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

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 76

Direction: Find out which part has an error and mark it as your answer. If there is no error, mark 'No error' as your answer.

I was just getting (A) / into the bath unless (B) / the phone rang. (C) / No error (D)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 76

The correct answer is '(B)​.'

Key Points

  • The error lies in part (B) of the sentence.
  • We use unless to say except if.
    • Example: You can't get a job unless you have experience.​
  • We use when as a conjunction meaning ‘at the time that’.
    • ExampleNobody spoke when she came into the room.
  • Therefore, the use of 'unlessin part '(B)​​' part of the sentence should be replaced by 'when' to make it grammatically correct.
  • Hence, the correct answer is '(B)​.'
  • Correct sentence: I was just getting into the bath when the phone rang.

Additional Information  

  • In references to the future with when, we use the present simple or the present perfect in the when-clause, not the future with shall and will

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 77

Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blanks.

I happily _______ to the demand of our workmen for extra bonus. After all, this year our sales had _______ all expectations.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 3 - Question 77

The correct answer is "acceded, exceeded".

Key Points

  • To choose the most appropriate option, let's consider the meaning of the words "acceded" and "exceeded."
  • "Acceded" means "agreed to a demand, request, or treaty," while "exceeded" means "went beyond what is allowed or expected."
  • Looking at the sentences:
    • In the first sentence, the speaker is agreeing to a demand from the workmen for an extra bonus.
    • Hence, the word should be "acceded."
    • In the second sentence, the context shows that the sales have gone beyond what was expected.
    • So, the appropriate word should be "exceeded."
  • Therefore, the most appropriate option to fill in the blanks is: acceded, exceeded
  • The filled sentences read: "I happily acceded to the demand of our workmen for extra bonus. After all, this year our sales had exceeded all expectations."

Hence, the correct answer is "Option 4".
