SOLUTIONS:

Candidates appeared for IBPS Clerk in all the years = 1850/37 × 18 + 2000/125 × 54 + 2120/53 × 26 + 2540/127 × 60

= 900 + 864 + 1040 + 1200 = 4004

Candidates appeared for NABARD in all the years = 680 + 755 + 844 + 867

= 3146

Candidates appeared for RBI in all the years = 225 + 241 + 236 + 188 = 890

Candidates appeared for NABARD & RBI together in all the years = 3146 + 890

= 4036

Difference of IBPS Clerk candidates & NABARD and RBI together = 4004 – 4036

= -32

∴more candidates appeared for NABARD & RBI together than IBPS Clerk

Required % = -32/4036 × 100 = 0.79%

Total candidates appeared for LIC in all the years = 530 + 612 + 792 + 836

= 2770

Candidates not qualified in all the years = 2770 - 1875 = 895

Candidates not qualified in 2016 = 895/179 × 42 = 210

Candidates not qualified in 2017 = 895/179 × 39 = 195

Candidates not qualified in 2018 = 895/179 × 53 = 265

Candidates not qualified in 2019 = 895/179 × 45 = 225

In order for maximum selection in 2019, there should be minimum selection in 2016, 2017 & 2018 together = 30% of (selection in 2016, 2017 & 2018)

=30/100 × [(530 - 210) + (612 - 195) + (792 - 265)] = 379.2 ≈ 379

Maximum possible selection in 2019 = 800 - 379 = 421

Required % = 421/800 × 100 = 52.625%

Candidates who appeared for only SBI = (1720 - 680) + (1840 - 755) + (2115-844) + (2230 - 867) = 4759

Candidates who did not get selected through SBI = (530 - 225) + (612 - 241) + (792 - 236) + (836 - 188) = 1880

Required answer = 1880/4759 = 0.4

A) SBI in 2017 = (1840 - 1720)/1720 × 100 = 6.98% ≈ 7%

B) LIC in 2017 = ((612 - 530))/530 × 100 = 15.47% ≈ 15%

C) IBPS in 2019 = (2540 - 2120)/2120 × 100 = 19.81% ≈ 20%

D) NABARD in 2018 = (844 - 755)/755 × 100 = 11.79% ≈ 12%

E) RBI in 2018 = (236 - 241)/241 × 100 = -2.07% ≈ -2% (decrease in number of candidates)

5.From I,

Number of Candidates in Science course = 1080

Number of candidates in Arts course = 880

Let number of boys in Arts course = a

Number of girls in Engineering course = a + 50/100 × a = 1.5a

From II,

Let number of girls in Science course = 3b

Number of boys in Commerce course = 3b + 33.33/100 × 3b = 4b

Number of girls in Commerce course = ¾ × 4b = 3b

From III,

Number of boys in Science course = ½ ×1.5a = 0.75a

Number of girls in Arts course = ½ × 0.75a = 0.375a

Now, 880 = a + 0.375a

a = 640

1080 = 0.75a + 3b

b = 200

Total candidates in Commerce course = 4b + 3b = 7b = 1400

Total candidates enrolled in all the courses together = 1400/25 × 100 = 5600

Total candidates in Engineering course = 5600 - (1080 + 880 + 1400) = 2240

Number of boys in Engineering course = 2240 - 1.5a = 1280

Then,

Engineering:

Total = 2240

Boys = 1280

Girls = 1.5a = 960

Science:

Total = 1080

Boys = 0.75 a = 480

Girls = 3b = 600

Art:

Total = 880

Boys = a = 640

Girls = 0.375 a = 240

Commerce:

Total = 1400

Boys = 4b = 800

Girls = 3b = 600 A = number of girls in Arts = 240

B/C = (total number of boys)/(total number of girls)

= (1280 + 480 + 640 + 800)/(960 + 600 + 240 + 600) = 3200/2400 = 4∶ 3

A = 240; B > C

Number of boys in Management course = 50/100 × 600 = 300

Total candidates in Management = 880 - 25/100 × 880 = 660

Number of girls in Management course = D= 660 – 300 = 360

Clearly, A < D

Number of candidates in Engineering in next year = 110/100 × 1280 + 960 = 2368

Number of candidates in Science in next year = 110/100 × 480 + 600 = 1128

Required ratio = 2368∶ 1128 = 296∶ 141

Number of boys divided = 480/3 = 160

Number of girls divided = 600/3 = 200

Number of boys in Engineering & Arts together = 1280 + 160 + 640 + 160 = 2240

Number of girls in Arts & Commerce together = 240 + 200 + 600 + 200 = 1240

Required ratio = 2240∶ 1240 = 56∶ 31

Number of boys in Science & Commerce together = 480 + 800 = 1280

Number of girls in Engineering & Arts together = 960 + 240 = 1200

Required % = 1280/1200 × 100 = 106.67%

Distance, D = VT (km)

Let he saves ‘x’ hours by travelling at increased speed

D = (V + 6)(T - x) = VT

D/(V + 6) = T - x; D/V = T

From I,

D/V + D/(V + 6)=2T - 1

T + T - x = 2T - 1

x = 1 hour

This statement alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

From II,

Speed of Ajay = 150/100 × V = 1.5V kmph

Since meeting time is same

(3D⁄5)/1.5V = (D - 3D/5)/V

Nothing can be find from statement II. So,

This statement alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

From III,

Distance, (D2 - 100D – 2400 = 0)

On solving, D = 120 km (another value is -20 which is not possible)

This statement alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

From I & III,

120/(V + 6) = 120/V - 1

120V = 120V + 720 - V2 - 6V

V2 + 6V – 720 = 0

V = 24 kmph (neglecting negative value)

So, Statement I & III together are required to answer the question.
