- Question 1 of 10
##### 1. Question

1 pointsCategory: AptitudeA bottle is fully filled with a mixture of which 5 parts are water and 10 parts of another liquid . What fraction of the mixture must be taken and replaced with water. So, that there is equal quantity of water and other liquid in the bottle?

Correct(a)

Let the bottle contain total 15 parts,

Let x parts of the mixture be taken off

So,

10- 10x/15=5-5x/15+x

x=15/4

So, part of mixture replaced with = 15/(4×15)=1/4

Incorrect(a)

Let the bottle contain total 15 parts,

Let x parts of the mixture be taken off

So,

10- 10x/15=5-5x/15+x

x=15/4

So, part of mixture replaced with = 15/(4×15)=1/4

- Question 7 of 10
##### 7. Question

1 pointsCategory: AptitudeIn 1kg mixture of sand and cement, 20% is cement. How much sand is to be added so that the proportion of cement becomes 10%

Correct(a)

There are 200 grams of cement in 1 kg (1,000 grams) of the mixture.

If we add x grams of sand, the total amount would be (1,000 + x) grams of mixture and we need 200 grams of cement to be 10% of that:0.1(1,000 + x) = 200

x = 1,000.

Incorrect(a)

There are 200 grams of cement in 1 kg (1,000 grams) of the mixture.

If we add x grams of sand, the total amount would be (1,000 + x) grams of mixture and we need 200 grams of cement to be 10% of that:0.1(1,000 + x) = 200

x = 1,000.

- Question 8 of 10
##### 8. Question

1 pointsCategory: AptitudeA certain quantity of milk is mixed with 10 litres of water and the resultant mixture is worth Rs.12/- per litre. If the cost of pure milk is Rs.20/- per lit, then how much milk is there in the mixture?

Correct(b)

Mixture = Milk + Water

Cost of pure milk = Rs.20 per litre

Cost of water = Rs.0

Mean price of mixture = Rs.12

The required ratio is 2:3 =>10:15

Given quantity of water is 10 litres

Milk = 10 ×1.5 = 15 litres

Validation total water 10 + total milk: 15

Mixture -> 25

Mixture cost = 25 × 12 = 30

Original cost = 15 × 20 = 300

Incorrect(b)

Mixture = Milk + Water

Cost of pure milk = Rs.20 per litre

Cost of water = Rs.0

Mean price of mixture = Rs.12

The required ratio is 2:3 =>10:15

Given quantity of water is 10 litres

Milk = 10 ×1.5 = 15 litres

Validation total water 10 + total milk: 15

Mixture -> 25

Mixture cost = 25 × 12 = 30

Original cost = 15 × 20 = 300

- Question 9 of 10
##### 9. Question

1 pointsCategory: AptitudeIn what ratio must water be added to milk gain 20% by selling the mixture at cost.

Correct(c)

Let the cost price of milk be Rs.10/-

Then S.P of mixture: Rs.10/-

It is given that the S.P. is with a profit of 20%.

That is if Rs.100 is CP -> S.P is 120

or if SP is 120 -> CP 100

If SP of mixture 10 -> CP 100/120×10 = 25/3

Now allegation formula

The ratio of water to milk is 1:5,

Validation: Let no take litre of water, and then it is 5 litres of milk.

Original cost of milk: 5 10 = Rs. 50

Cost of mixture = 6 10 = Rs. 60

(1 water + 5 milk)

Profit 60 – 50 = 10

=> % 10/50×100 = 20%

Incorrect(c)

Let the cost price of milk be Rs.10/-

Then S.P of mixture: Rs.10/-

It is given that the S.P. is with a profit of 20%.

That is if Rs.100 is CP -> S.P is 120

or if SP is 120 -> CP 100

If SP of mixture 10 -> CP 100/120×10 = 25/3

Now allegation formula

The ratio of water to milk is 1:5,

Validation: Let no take litre of water, and then it is 5 litres of milk.

Original cost of milk: 5 10 = Rs. 50

Cost of mixture = 6 10 = Rs. 60

(1 water + 5 milk)

Profit 60 – 50 = 10

=> % 10/50×100 = 20%

- Question 10 of 10
##### 10. Question

1 pointsCategory: AptitudeIn what ratio must a businessman mix two types of rice costing Rs.36 and Rs.48 per kg. So that by selling this mixture at Rs.44 per kg he gains 10% profit.

Correct(a)

The S.P of the mixture is Rs.44 which includes a profit of 10%.

Find the C.P of the mixture: of Rs.100 in CP -> S.P is 110 (10% Profit)

110 is SP -> CP 100

44 is SP ->100/110×44 = 40 (C.P)

By allegation method,

I type & II type should be mixed in the ratio 2:1.

Validation: Cost of 2 kg of I type = 36 2 = 72

Cost of 1 kg of II type = 48 1 = 48

120

S.P of 3kgs @ 44 per kg = 132

Profit % = 12/120×100=10%

Incorrect(a)

The S.P of the mixture is Rs.44 which includes a profit of 10%.

Find the C.P of the mixture: of Rs.100 in CP -> S.P is 110 (10% Profit)

110 is SP -> CP 100

44 is SP ->100/110×44 = 40 (C.P)

By allegation method,

I type & II type should be mixed in the ratio 2:1.

Validation: Cost of 2 kg of I type = 36 2 = 72

Cost of 1 kg of II type = 48 1 = 48

120

S.P of 3kgs @ 44 per kg = 132

Profit % = 12/120×100=10%
