# Quant Miscellaneous Questions Quiz-1

1. In Delhi there are 80 people. The number of people who likes dogs are twice the number of people who like cats. The number of people who don’t like dogs are 32 and the number of people who don’t like cats are 56. The number of people who like both dogs and cats are twice the number of those who like only cats. What is the number of people who neither like dogs nor cats?

A. 29
B. 22
C. 24
D.19
E. 25

C. 24

Let w be the number of people who like only dogs

X be those who like both dogs and cats

Y be those who like only cats

Z be those who neither like dogs nor cats.

So, w+x+y+z=80

Now, w+x=2*(x+y)

Hence, w-x=2y

It is given,

y+z=32 and w+z=56

We know, x=2y

So, we get w=2x

Similarly, we also get w+x=48(since y+z=32)

Hence, Putting w=2x in the above we get,

X=16, W=32, Y=8 and Z=24

2. A can do a piece of work in 12 days, B can do the same work in 18 days. They worked for 6 days and C does the rest of work in 4 days. If they get Rs. 1650 for the whole work, find the individual share of A,B and C respectively?

A. 825, 550, 275
B. 550, 825, 275
C. 825, 275, 550
D. 850, 525, 225
E. None of these

A. 825, 550, 275

Work done by A in 6 days= 6/12=1/2

Work done by B in 6 days= 6/18 = 1/3

Remaining work= 1 – (1/2+1/3)= 1/6

This work is done by C in 4 days i.e. C can complete the whole work in 24 days.

So, Ratio of work= 6/12 : 6/18 : 4/24

=1/2 : 1/3 : 1/6 = 3 : 2 : 1

Share of A= (3/6*1650)=Rs.825

Share of B= (2/6*1650)=Rs.550

Share of C=(1/6*1650)=Rs.275

3. A man X is driving to work. In order to reach office for meeting he drives faster and the speed is increased by 5km/h and he reached office 30 minutes early. Assuming that due to traffic his speed is decreased by 3 km/h he will be late for the meeting by 30 minutes. Calculate the Speed and the distance to the office?

A. 15km/h and 30km
B. 18km/h and 30km
C. 15km/h and 87km
D. 17km/h and 88km
E. None of these

A. 15km/h and 30km

Let the distance be=x

Speed be=y

Time be=z

So according to question=

x/y – x/(y+5) = x/(y-3) – x/y

1/y – 1/(y+5) = 1/(y-3) – 1/y

(y+5-y)/[y(y+5)] = (y – y+3)/[(y-3)y]

5/[y+5] = 3/[y-3]

2y = 30

Y = 15km/h

Putting the value in the equation –

(y+5)*(z-30/60) = (y-3)*(z+30/60)

(y+5)*(2z-1) = (y-3)*(2z+1)

20*(2z-1) = 12*(2z+1)

10z-5=6z+3

4z=8

Z=2hours (120 Minutes)

Distance=15*120/60=30kms.

4. A maid borrowed money from 2 houses (X and Y) she works in. From X she borrowed money at an interest rate of 15% and from Y at the rate of 18%. The total money she borrowed was Rs. 24000. She paid Rs. 4050 as an interest in addition to the amount borrowed after 1 year. Find how much money she borrowed at 18% interest rate?

A. 12000
B. 13800
C. 15000
D. 20000
E. 25000

C. 15000

Let the Sum at 15% be Rs. X

Then at 18% be Rs. (24000-x)

P1=x, R1=15

P2=(24000-x)R2=18

After 1 year T=1

(P1*T*R1)/100 * (P2*T*R2)100=4050

(x*1*15)/100 + {(24000-x)*1*18}/100=4050

15x + 432000 = 18x+405000

X=9000

Money Borrowed at 15% =9000

Money Borrowed at 18%=(24000-9000)=15000

5. A business man invested in 2 types of Simple interest bearing securities ( S1 and S2). He invested in S1 at the rate of 6% p.a and 7% p.a. for the S2. After 2 years, he earned  Rs. 354. One fourth of the amount invested in S1 is equal to the one-fifth of the amount invested in S2. Calculate the total money the man invested in the securities?

A. 2500
B. 2700
C. 3500
D. 3400
E. 3000

B. 2700

Let the sums be X and Y

R1=6, R2=7, T=2

(P1*R1*T)/100 + (P2*R2*T)/100 =354

(x*6*2)/100  + (y*7*2)/100 = 354

6x+7y = 17700

Also, x/4 = y/5

5x – 4y=0

X=1200

Y= 1500

Sum=1200+1500=2700
