## Quant Miscellaneous Questions for SBI PO/ Clerk: Set-22

1.A, B and C can do a work individually in 12 days, 15 days and 20 days respectively. A, B and C together started the work and worked for 2.5 days and then B and C left the work. If A works for ‘x’ days after B and C left the work and the remaining work is completed by B alone after A has worked for x days, then find the value of ‘x’. The total work is completed in 9.4 days.

A 2.25 days
B 2.2 days
C 2 days
D 2.4 days
E None of these

D. 2.4 days

Let the total work be LCM of (12, 15 and 20) = 60 units

Number of units of work completed by A in one day = 5 units

Number of units of work completed by B in one day = 4 units

Number of units of work completed by C in one day = 3 units

Number of units of work completed by A, B and C together in one day = (5 + 4 + 3) = 12 units

According to question,

12 × 2.5 + 5x + 4(9.4 – 2.5 – x) = 60

=> 30 + 5x + 4(6.9 – x) = 60

=> 30 + 5x + 27.6 – 4x = 60

=> x = 60 – 57.6

=> x = 2.4 days

2.A train crosses a bridge of length ‘x’ metres at the speed of 72 km/hr in 72.5 seconds. If the train crosses a man standing on the platform at the same speed in 32 seconds, then find the value of ‘x’.

A 980 metres
B 850 metres
C 810 metres
D 740 metres
E None of these

C. 810 metres

Speed of train = 72 km/hr = 20 m/s

Length of the train = 20 × 32 = 640 metres

According to question,

(640 + x) = 20 × 72.5

640 + x = 1450

x = 810 metres

3.There are two pipes, pipe P which fills the cistern and Q which empties the cistern. P and Q together can fill a cistern in ‘x’ minutes. If inlet pipe P can fill the cistern alone in (x – 40) minutes and outlet pipe Q can empty the cistern alone in (x – 30) minutes, then find the time taken by P and Q together to fill the cistern.

A 75 minutes
B 70 minutes
C 80 minutes
D 50 minutes
E None of these

E. None of these

4.The cost price of ‘x’ litres of oil is Rs. 16/litre. If 2 litres of freely available water is mixed to the oil and the whole mixture is sold at the price of Rs. 15.2/litre such that there is no loss or profit, then find the value of ‘x’.

A 32 litres
B 28 litres
C 33 litres
D 36 litres
E None of these

E. None of these

According to question,

16x = 15.2 (x + 2)

=> 16x = 15.2x + 30.4

=> 0.8x = 30.4

=> x = 38 litres

5.A man deposited Rs. 24500 in scheme A at ‘x’% simple interest per annum for ‘x’ years. The simple interest earned from the scheme A is Rs. 6125. If Rs. 18000 is deposited in another scheme B which gives compound interest at the rate of 2x%, then find the compound interest earned from scheme B after 3 years.

A Rs. 6124
B Rs. 5958
C Rs. 5876
D Rs. 6214
E None of these

B. Rs. 5958

6.Bag A contains 2 red balls, 3 green balls and ‘x’ white balls. The probability of drawing a red ball from the bag is 0.2. If another bag B contains (x + 2) white balls, 3 red balls and (x – 2) green balls and a man randomly selects 3 balls from bag B, then find the probability that he selects one ball of each color.

A 57/241
B 63/286
C 6/29
D 41/264
E None of these

B. 63/286

7.The population of a village consisting of males and females is ‘x’. If the female population in the village is 45% and the difference between the male population and female population is 440, then find the value of ‘x’.

A 4800

Given, total population of the village = x

Female population = 45% of x = 0.45x

Male population = 55% of x = 0.55x

According to question,

0.55x – 0.45x = 440

=> 0.1x = 440

=> x = 4400
