Written exam pattern:

  1. There are three sections

    1. Quantitative aptitude = 30 ques.

    2. Logical Reasoning = 40 ques.

    3. English = 30 ques.

  2. There is negative marking ½ (0.5) so be careful

  3. There is sectional cut off in each section. So time management is very important try to solve at least 50% question of each section. Some questions.

Quantitative Aptitude

Quantitative questions are easy one R. S. Aggarwal is more then enough some questions are from percentage, profit and loss etc

  1. Two successive discounts are 20% 40% then its equivalent discount

  2. if radius of cylinder is incresed by 30% and height is decresed by 40% then what will % effect on volume of cylinder.

  3. The total expense of a boarding house are partly fixed and partly variable with the number of boarders. The charge is Rs. 70 per head when there are 25 boarders and Rs. 60 when there are 50 boarders. Find the charge per head when there are 100 boarders.

    1. 65

    2. 55

    3. 50

    4. 45

  4. Amal bought 5 pens, 7 pencils and 4 erasers. Rajan bought 6 pens, 8 erasers and 14 pencils for an amount which was half more than what Amal had paid. What % of the total amount paid by Amal was paid for pens?

    1. 37.5%

    2. 62.5%

    3. 50%

    4. None of these

  5. 2 oranges, 3 bananas and 4 apples cost Rs. 15.3 oranges, 2 bananas, and 1 apple costs Rs. 10. What is the cost of 3 oranges, 3 bananas and 3 apples?

    1. 10

    2. 20

    3. 30.45

    4. 15

  6. age of mohan's sister is thrice of mohan's age then what will be sister's age if mohan's age is 4 year at present. Some questions are also from data interpretation. i can't remember other questions but these question certainly give you some ideas. About question level

Solution

Solution for question 3

a = fixed cost and

k = variable cost and n = number of boarders

total cost when 25 boarders c = 25 * 70 = 1750 i.e., 1750 = a + 25k

total cost when 50 boarders c = 50 * 60 = 3000 i.e., 3000 = a + 50k

solving above 2 eqns, 3000 − 1750 = 25k i.e., 1250 = 25k i.e., k = 50

therefore, substituting this value of k in either of above 2 eqns we get

a = 500 (a = 3000 − 50 * 50 = 500 or a = 1750 − 25 * 50 = 500)

so total cost when 100 boarders = c = a + 100k = 500 + 100 * 50 = 5500

so cost per head = 5500/100 = 55

Solution for question 4

Let, 5 pens + 7 pencils + 4 erasers = x rupees

so 10 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erasers = 2 * x rupees

also mentioned, 6 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erarsers = 1.5 * x rupees

so (10 − 6) = 4 pens = (2 − 1.5) x rupees

so 4 pens = 0.5x rupees ⇒ 8 pens = x rupees

so 5 pens = 5x/8 rupees = ⅝ of total (note x rupees is total amt paid by amal) i.e. ⅝ = 500/8% = 62.5% is the answer

Solution. Of 5.

2x + 3y + 4z = 15

3x + 2y + z = 10

adding

5x + 5y + 5z = 25

x + y + z = 5 that is for 1 orange, 1 bannana and 1 apple requires 5Rs.

so for 3 orange, 3 bannana and 3 apple requires 15Rs.

i.e.. 3x + 3y + 3z = 15

Logical Reasoning

Data sufficiency about 4 question. statement and conclusion about 4 ques, 4 puzzles about 16 question, number series 4 question data interpretation

some questions are from data sufficiency

  1. a, b and c are three cities in straight then what will be distance between a and b

    1. if distance between a and c is 60 k. m.

    2. ratio of distance between a and b and b and c is 2: 5

  2. mohan is taller then ram, mohan is taller then sohan, then what can be say

    1. ram is taller then sohan

    2. sohan is taller then ram

    3. can't tell

    soln. c

English

4 question. Like this i.e.find out error in the following sentence:

  1. one of the men has:

    1. /to teach them properly

    2. /because he is

    3. /the teacher in this school

    4. /no error

Ans: (d) because before profession a is not used so error in d means a teacher in this school is correct

3 ques. Antonyms (easy one)

4 ques. Word meaning analogy (difficult one i can't solve any one)

4 ques. From passage (average)
