Aptitude test pattern:
Test is of 35 marks for 30 minutes.

1)QUANTITATIVE (20 Questions):
problems based on heights & distances, boats & streams, numbers,
profit-loss, percentage, time n work, time n distance, allegation or
mixtures, pipes & cisterns (RS Aggrawal is enough).
Following are some question that I remembered…
1)50 man can build a wall of 40m height 30m breadth 50m width in 20 days.
then in how many days 40 man can build a wall of 30m,40m,60m?
2)There are three pipes A,B,C . A can fill a tank in 15hours, B can fill a
tank 20hours,c can empty a tank in 25 hours.a man can start a tap A at 3
o'clock B at 4 o'clock & C at 5o'clock.find at what time tank can full? (pls
note ,values are incorrect).
3) abcd = 1 then minimum possible value of (1+a)(1+b)(1+c)(1+d)?
4)Fresh grapes contain 90% water when they are dried they turn into resins
containing 20% water .find how many kg of resins can be obtained from 20kg
of fresh grapes
5) a,a+2,a+4 are prime numbers ,then find number of possible solution of a?
(ans. only 3 satisfies)
6)2 boats running in opposite direction with 10 km/hr & 5 km/hr(distance
between boats is given).Find distance between 2 boats ,1 min before
Its really very very easy .Some part of sentence is underlined & we have to
replace it with appropriate sentence from given options.
