# Sample Aptitude Questions of Aricent

1. A, B and C started a business by investing Rs. 12,800/-. Rs.16,800/- and Rs. 9,600/- respectively. If after 8 months B received Rs. 13,125/- as his share of profit, what amount did C get as his share of profit?
1. Rs. 7,800/-
2. Rs. 7,150/-
3. Rs. 7,750/-
4. Rs. 8,250/-
5. Rs. 7,500/-
Here the profit will be distributed in the ratio of their investments
i.e. 12800:16800:9600 → 16:21:12
Let 'x' be the total profit
we know that profit received by B = 13125/-
Therefore,
21 / (16+21+12) * x = 13125
Share received by C = (12 / 49) * 30625 = 7500/-
1. 412 + (1 ÷ 289) - 3113 = ?
1. 1926
2. 2713
3. 11126
4. 2413
5. 11013
412 + (1 ÷ 289) - 3113
=> 9/2 + 9/26 - 40/13
=> 11013
2. {√7744 * 112} ÷ (2)3 = (?)3
1. 7
2. 9
3. 11
4. 13
5. 17
? = [{√7744 * 112} ÷ (2)3]13
[(88 * 121) / 8]13
= (1331)13 = 11
Hence the answer is option C.
3. 456 ÷ 24 * 38 - 958 + 364 = ?
1. 112
2. 154
3. 128
4. 136
5. 118
Applying BODMAS
? = 456 ÷ 24 * 38 - 958 + 364
= 19 * 38 - 958 + 364
= 722 - 958 + 364
= 1086 - 958
= 128
Hence, the answer is option C.
4. (34.5 × 14 × 42) ÷ 2.8 =?
1. 7150
2. 7365
3. 7245
4. 7575
5. 7335
? = (34.5 × 14 × 42) ÷ 2.8
= 20286 / 2.8
= 7245
Hence, the answer is option C.
1. (3617 ÷ 2734 - 1925) = (?)2
1. 2/5
2. 1/3
3. 4/5
4. 1/5
5. 3/5
(?)2 = (3617 ÷ 2734 - 1925)
= [(57/17) / (75/34)] - 34/25
= 4/25
Therefore, ? = 2/5
2. -676.76 + 1237.87 + 897.34 - ? = 1294.25
1. 168.6
2. 164.2
3. 156.4
4. 172.2
5. 158.6
Applying BODMAS
? = -676.76 + 1237.87 + 897.34 - 1294.25
= 164.2
Hence, the answer is option B.
3. Pure milk costs Rs. 16/- per liter. After adding water the milkman sells the mixture @ Rs. 15/- per liter and thereby makes a profit of 25% in what respective ratio does he mix milk with water?
1. 3 : 1
2. 4 : 3
3. 3 : 2
4. 5 : 3
5. 4 : 1
If SP of mixture is 15/- per liter and profit is 25%, then
CP of mixture = (100/125) * 15 = 12/- liter
As 16/- is the cost of pure 1000 ml, therefore, for 12/-, the quantity of milk =
(12/16) * 1000 = 750 ml
So for 12/- per liter, the milk is 750 ml, then water will be 250 ml.
Thus, required ratio = 750:250 = 3:1
4. What will come in place of question mark (?) in the given question?
36 38.8 42.8 ? 54.4 62
1. 46.2
2. 46.6
3. 48.2
4. 48
5. 49
Here the given pattern is as follows:
36      38.8      42.8      ?      54.4      62
+2.8      +4.0      +5.2      +6.4      +7.6
+1.2      +1.2      +1.2      +1.2
So ? = 42.8 + 5.2 = 48
