  1. Question 1. A 600m Long Train Is Running At 73 Kmph. How Much Time Train Will Take To Cross An Electric Pole?

    Answer :

    Formula Used: Time = ( Distance / Speed) 

    As all the option given in sec., so convert the train speed (Kmph) in to mps multiply by 5/18

    speed (mps) = 73 * 5/18 

    Time = 600 / (73 * 5/18)

    = (600 * 18 )/(73 * 5) sec

    = (10800 / 365)

    Time take by Train = 29.58Sec.

  2. Question 2. A 120 M Long Train Is Running At 72 Kmph. How Much Time Will It Take To Cross A Man Standing On The Platform?

  4. Question 3. Two Trains 400m And 300m Long Run At The Speeds Of 50 Kmph And 40kmph Respectively In Opposite Directions On Parallel Tracks. The Time Taken To Cross Each Other?

    Answer :

    Trains are running in opposite Direction:

    So need to find Length of two Trains = 300m + 400m = 700m

    and Total Speed = 40 Kmph + 50 Kmph (Opposite Direction)

    = 90 Kmph

    so speed (m/sec) = 90 * 5/18 m/sec = 25 m/sec

    Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed

    Time = 700/ 25 sec

    Time = 28 Sec.

  5. Question 4. Two Stations A And B Are 110 Km Apart On A Straight Line. One Train Starts From A At 7 A.m. And Travels Towards B At 20 Kmph. Another Train Starts From B At 8 A.m. And Travels Towards A At A Speed Of 25 Kmph. At What Time Will They Meet?

    Answer :

    Let they meet x hours after 7 a.m.

    Distance covered by A in x hours = 20x km.

    Distance covered by B in (x – 1) hours = 25(x – 1) km.

    So Total Distance

    => 20x + 25(x – 1) = 110

    => 45x – 25 = 110 => 45x = 135

    => x = 3.

    As They meet x hrs after 7 a.m. so they meet at 10 a.m.

  6. Question 5. Two Trains Are Running At 40 Km/hr And 20 Km/hr Respectively In The Same Direction. Fast Train Completely Passes A Man Sitting In The Slower Train In 5 Seconds. What Is The Length Of The Fast Train?

    Answer :

    As train are running in same direction 

    so Relative speed = (40 – 20) km/hr = 20 km/hr

    = ( 20 x 5/18 ) m/sec = 50/9 m/sec.

    Formula Used: Distance = Speed * Time

    Now Length of Faster Train = ( 50/9 x 5 ) m = 250/9 m 

    = 27 7/9 m.

  7. Wipro Aptitude Interview Questions

  8. Question 6. A Train Moves Past A Telegraph Post And A Bridge 264 M Long In 8 Seconds And 20 Seconds Respectively. What Is The Speed Of The Train?

    Answer :

    Let the length of the train be x meters and its speed by y m/sec.

    Then, x/y = 8 => x = 8y ———– (1)

    As per the question total distance = (x + 264) meters.

    (x + 264)/20 = y

    Put the value of x from equation 1. 

    => 8y + 264 = 20y

    => y = 22.

    Therefore Speed = 22 m/sec = ( 22 x 18 /5) km/hr = 79.2 km/hr.

  9. Question 7. An Athlete Runs 200 Metres Race In 24 Seconds. His Speed Is?

    Answer :

    Speed = (200/24) m/sec = 25/3 m/sec 

    convert m/sec to km/hr 

    (25/3 * 18/5) km/hr = 30 km/hr.

  11. Question 8. Albert Is Travelling On His Cycle And Has Calculated To Reach Point A At 2 P.m. If He Travels At 10 Kmph, He Will Reach There At 12 Noon If He Travels At 15 Kmph. At What Speed Must He Travel To Reach A At 1 P.m.?

    Answer :

    Let’s Assume the distance travelled Albert = x km.

    Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed

    so (x/10 – x/15) = 2 hrs

    => (3x – 2x)/30 = 2 hrs.

    => (3x – 2x) = 60

    x = 60 km.

    Time taken to travel 60 km at 10 km/hr = 60/10 hrs = 6 hrs.

    Formula Used: Speed = Distance/Time

    So, Albert started 6 hours before 2 P.M. i.e @ 8 A.M.

    Required speed = 60/5 kmph. = 12 kmph.

  12. Question 9. A Person Travelled By Train For 1 Hour At A Speed Of 50 Kmph. He Then Travelled By A Taxi For 30 Minutes At A Speed Of 32 Kmph To Complete His Journey. What Is The Average Speed At Which He Travelled During The Journey?

    Answer :

    Total distance travelled in 1 hour

    = 50 + (&frac; x 32) km

    = 66 km

    ? Average speed = Total distance/Total time

    = 66/(3/2) = 44 kmph.

  14. Question 10. A Car Covers Four Successive 6 Km Stretches At Speeds Of 25 Kmph, 50 Kmph, 75 Kmph And 150 Kmph Respectively. Its Average Speed Over This Distance Is?

    Answer :

    Time = Distance/Speed

    Time taken for each 6 km can be given by

    6/25, 6/50, 6/75 and 6/150

    Total time = (6/25) + (6/50) + (6/75) + (6/150) = (36 + 18 + 12 + 6)/150 = 72/150

    Average speed = Distance/time = (24/72) x 150 = 50 kmph.

  15. Question 11. A’ And ‘b’ Complete A Work Togather In 8 Days.if ‘a’ Alone Can Do It In 12 Days.then How Many Day ‘b’ Will Take To Complete The Work?

    Answer :

    A & B one day work = 1/8 

    A alone one day work = 1/12

    B alone one day work = (1/8 – 1/12) = ( 3/24 – 2/24) 

    => B one day work = 1/24

    so B can complete the work in 24 days.

  16. Abaxis Aptitude Interview Questions

  17. Question 12. If A Alone Can Do A Piece Of Work In 8 Days And B Alone Can Do The Same Work In 12 Days. How Many Days A And B Required To Finish The Same Work If They Work Togather?

    Answer :

    A alone one day work = 1/8

    B alone one day work = 1/12

    Both A and B one day work = (1/8 + 1/12) = (3/24 + 2/24)

    = 5/24

    so A and B together finish the work in 24/5 day 

    or 4 4/5 days.

  18. Aptitude Interview Questions

  19. Question 13. A Can Finish A Piece Work In 18 Days And B Can Do The Same Work In Half The Time Taken By A. So If They Working Together, What Part Of The Same Work Can Finished In A Day?

    Answer :

    First find the 1 day work of both (A & B)

    A’s 1 day’s work = 1/18

    and 

    B’s 1 day’s work = 1/9 (B can do work in half time)

    (A + B)’s 1 day’s work = (1/18+1/9) 

    = (1+2)/18 = 3/18 = 1/6 

    so A & B together can do 1/6 of work in 1 day.

  20. Question 14. A And B Can Together Finish A Work In 30 Days. They Worked Together For 20 Days And Then B Left. After Another 20 Days, A Finished The Remaining Work. In How Many Days A Alone Can Finish The Job ?

    Answer :

    (A + B)’s 1 day’s work = 1/30

    so (A&B) 20 days work = (20*1/30) = 2/3

    so left work = (1?2/3)=1/3

    1/3 work is done by A = 20 days.

    So whole work will be done by A = (20 x 3) = 60 days.

  21. Question 15. A And B Together Can Do A Piece Of Work In 30 Days. A Having Worked For 16 Days, B Finishes The Remaining Work Alone In 44 Days. In How Many Days Shall B Finish The Whole Work Alone ?

    Answer :

    A’s 1 day’s work = x 

    and B’s 1 day’s work = y

    So (A & B) 1 day work = 1/30 => x+y =1/30

    => 30x + 30y = 1 ——– (1)

    So 16x + 44y = 1 ——– (2)

    By Solving above two equations,

    x = 1/60 and y = 1/60

    B’s 1 day’s work = 1/60

    Hence, B alone shall finish the whole work in 60 days.

    total time=1hr24min

    A to T :: speed=4kmph

    diistance=2/3S

    T to S :: speed=5km

    distance=1-2/3S=1/3S

    21/15 hr=2/3 S/4 + 1/3s /5

    84=14/3S*3

    S=84*3/14*3

    = 6km.

  24. Question 17. A Cistern Can Be Filled By A Tap In 4 Hours While It Can Be Emptied By Another Tap In 9 Hours. If Both Taps Are Opened Simultaneously, Then After How Much Time Will The Cistern Get Filled ?

    Answer :

    Time taken by tap A to fill the cistern=4 hrs

    so work done by tap A in 1 hour = 1/4th

    Time taken by tap B to empty the full cistern = 9 hours

    so work done by tap B in 1 hour = 1/9th

    => Work done by (A + B) in 1 hour=(1/4 – 1/9)=5/36

    Therefore, the tank will fill the cistern = 36/5 hours=7.2 hours.

  26. Question 18. In A Class, There Are 15 Boys And 10 Girls. Three Students Are Selected At Random. The Probability That 1 Girl And 2 Boys Are Selected, Is?

    Answer :

    Let’s assume the sample space = S

    and Event of selecting 1 girl and 2 boys = E

    So, n(S) = Number ways of selecting 3 students out of 25 = 25C3

    => (25 * 24 * 23)/(3 * 2 * 1) = 2300.

    n(E) = (10C1* 15C2)

    = 10 * [(15 * 14)/(2 * 1)] = 1050.

    P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 1050/2300 = 21/46.

  32. Question 22. Two Pipes A And B Can Fill A Tank In 9 Hours And 3 Hours Respectively. If They Are Opened On Alternate Hours And If Pipe A Is Opened First, In How Many Hours Will The Tank Be Full?

    Answer :

    Tank part filled by pipe A in 1 hour =1/9

    Tank part filled by pipe B in 1 hour =1/3

    Given Pipe A and B are opened alternatively.

    So Part filled in every 2 hours =(1/9+1/3)=4/9

    Tank Part will be filled in 4 hour =2*4/9=8/9

    Remaining part = (1-8/9)=1/9

    So next is A turn.

    So Pipe A will fill remaining 1/9 part in next 1 hour.

    Total Time = (4 hrs + 1 hrs) = 5 hrs.

  33. Question 23. Pipe A Can Fill A Cistern In 6 Hours Less Than Pipe B. Both The Pipes Together Can Fill The Cistern In 4 Hours. How Much Time Would A Take To Fill The Cistern All By Itself?

    Answer :

    Let’s assume time required by Pipe A to fill the cistern = X hours

    So Time required by Pipe B to fill the cistern = (X + 6) hours

    ? Both Pipes (A+B) can fill cistern in 1 hour = [1/X + 1/(X + 6)]

    Given Both pipe fill the cistern in 4 hours

    => [1/X + 1/(X + 6)] = 1/4 => [(X+6) + X]/(X+6)*x = 1/4

    4X + 24 + 4X = X2 + 6x 

    X2 – 2X – 24 = 0

    (X-6)(X+4) = 0 

    => A can fill cistern in 6 hours.

  37. Question 25. 13 Sheeps And 9 Pigs Were Bought For Rs. 1291.85.if The Average Price Of A Sheep Be Rs. 74. What Is The Average Price Of A Pig?

    Answer :

    Average price of a sheep = Rs. 74

    :Total price of 13 sheeps = (74*13) = Rs. 962

    But, total price of 13 sheeps and 9 pigs

    = Rs. 1291.85

    Total price of 9 pigs

    = Rs. (1291.85-962) = Rs. 329.85

    Hence, average price of a pig

    = (329.85/9) = Rs. 36.65.

  38. Question 26. Three Pipes A, B And C Can Fill A Tank In 6 Hours. After Working At It Together For 2 Hours, C Is Closed And A And B Can Fill The Remaining Part In 7 Hours. The Number Of Hours Taken By C Alone To Fill The Tank Is?

    Answer :

    Tank part filled by pipes (A+B+C) in 1 hrs = 1/6 ——- (1)

    so tank part filled by (A+B+C) in 2 hrs = 2*1/6 = 1/3

    Now find the remaining part = (1-1/3) = 2/3 

    => (A+B) 7 hs work = 2/3 

    so (A+B) 1 hrs work = 2/21 —— (2)

    To find the C 1 hrs work use eq. 1 & 2 

    => 1/6-2/21 = 1/14

    so C alone can fill the tank in 14 hrs.

    Answer :

    Given sum of ages is 360 years.

    The ratio of children and parents ages is 2:1.

    So total age of parents = 360 x 1 / 3 = 120 years

    Given Ratio of wife and husband age is 5:7. 

    So the age of husband = 120 x 7

  47. Question 32. The Sum Of The Ages Of A Mother And Her Son Is 45 Years. Five Years Ago, The Product Of Their Ages Was 3 Times The Mother Age At That Time, Then The Present Age Of The Son?

    Answer :

    Let’s assume mother age = x years. —– (1)

    sum of mother and her son age = 45 

    so son age will be = (45-x) years. ——- (2)

    Five year ago:

    mother age will be = (x-5) years

    son age will be = (45-x-x) years = (40-x) year.

    As per question

    (x-5) * (40-x) = 3*(x-5)

    => (40-x) = 3 

    => x = 37 year. 

    so son age will be (45-37) = 8 years.

    So,x*y=135*9=1215 —–(1)

    and x^2+y^2=2754

    So,(x+y)^2=x^2+y^2+2*x*y = 2754+2*1215=5184

    So,x+y=72 ———– (2) 

    By solving eq. (1) & (2) 

    nos. are 45 and 27.
