# Target SBI PO Mains- Day 14 – Aptitude – DI Table

Direction (1-5): Classification of 100 Students Based on the Marks Obtained by them in Physics and Chemistry in an Examination.

 Subject Marks out of 50 40 and above 30 and above 20 and above 10 and above 0 and above Physics 9 32 80 92 100 Chemistry 4 21 66 81 100 Average (Aggregate) 7 27 73 87 100

1. What is the different between the number of students passed with 30 as cut-off marks in Chemistry and those passed with 30 as cut-off marks in aggregate?

(a) 3

(b) 4

(c) 5

(d) 6

(e) None of these

d) (d) 6

Required difference

= (No. of students scoring 30 and above marks in Chemistry) – (Number of students scoring 30 and above marks in aggregate)

= 27 – 21

= 6.

2. If at least 60% marks in Physics are required for pursuing higher studies in Physics, how many students will be eligible to pursue higher studies in Physics?

(a) 27

(b) 32

(c) 34

(d) 41

(e) None of these

(d) 41

3. The percentage of number of students getting at least 60% marks in Chemistry over those getting at least 40% marks in aggregate, is approximately?

(a) 21%

(b) 27%

(c) 29%

(d) 31%

(e) None of these

(c) 29%

4. The number of students scoring less than 40% marks in aggregate is?

(a) 13

(b) 19

(c) 20

(d) 27

(e) None of these

(d) 27

5. If it is known that at least 23 students were eligible for a Symposium on Chemistry, then the minimum qualifying marks in Chemistry for eligibility to Symposium would lie in the range?

(a) 40-45

(b) 30-40

(c) 20-30

(d) Below 20

(e) None of these

(c) 20-30

Since 66 students get 20 and above marks in Chemistry and out of these 21 students get 30 and above marks, therefore to select top 35 students in Chemistry, the qualifying marks should lie in the range 20-30

Directions (6-10): Financial statement of a company over the years (Rupees in Lakhs)

6. During which year did the ‘Net Profit’ exceed Rs. 1 Crore for the first time

(a) 1981-82

(b) 1982-83

(c) 1984-85

(d) 1985-86

(c) 1984-85

Only a look is needed (can be studied in the table).

7. During which year was the ‘Gross Turnover’ closet to the thrice the ‘profit before interest and depreciation’?

(a) 1981-82

(b) 1982-83

(c) 1984-85

(d) 1985-86

(b) 1982-83

8. During which of the given year did the ‘net profit’ form the highest proportion of the ‘profit before interest and depreciation’?

(a) 1981-82

(b) 1982-83

(c) 1984-85

(d) 1985-86

(c) We look at the ‘Net profit’ and ‘Profits before Interest and Depreciation’. We need to find the year in which ‘profits before……..’ is the smallest multiple of ‘Net Profits’. Use approximations, 38 ÷ 1, 40 ÷ 2, 52 ÷ 5, 60 ÷ 6.5, 80÷20, 92 ÷ 22 and make quick mental calculation. Obviously any one of the last two is the answer. We have 80 ÷20=4,92 ÷22>4,and hence 80 ÷20 is the minimum.

Hence, 1984 – 85 is the answer.

9. Which of the following registered the lowest increase in terms of rupees from the year 1980-81 to year 1985-86?

(a) 1981-82 to 1982-83

(b) 1982-83 to 1983-84

(c) 1983-84 to 1984-85

(d) 1984-85 to 1985-86

69. (d) Mental calculation with approximation is sufficient. Among 2700 – 2500, 900 – 800, 600 – 500, 99 – 92 and 220 – 212, the fourth is a single digit figure and it is the least.

10. The ‘Gross Turnover’ for 1982-83 is about what percent of the ‘Gross Turnover’ for 1984-85?

(a) 40

(b) 50

(c) 60

(d) 70
