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/-

    Answer: Option E
    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/-
    Hence, the answer is E.
  2. 412 + (1 ÷ 289) - 3113 = ?
    1. 1926
    2. 2713
    3. 11126
    4. 2413
    5. 11013

    Answer: Option E
    412 + (1 ÷ 289) - 3113
    => 9/2 + 9/26 - 40/13
    => 11013
  3. {√7744 * 112} ÷ (2)3 = (?)3
    1. 7
    2. 9
    3. 11
    4. 13
    5. 17

    Answer: Option C
    ? = [{√7744 * 112} ÷ (2)3]13
    [(88 * 121) / 8]13
    = (1331)13 = 11
    Hence the answer is option C.
  4. 456 ÷ 24 * 38 - 958 + 364 = ?
    1. 112
    2. 154
    3. 128
    4. 136
    5. 118

    Answer: Option C
    Applying BODMAS
    ? = 456 ÷ 24 * 38 - 958 + 364
    = 19 * 38 - 958 + 364
    = 722 - 958 + 364
    = 1086 - 958
    = 128
    Hence, the answer is option C.
  5. (34.5 × 14 × 42) ÷ 2.8 =?
    1. 7150
    2. 7365
    3. 7245
    4. 7575
    5. 7335

    Answer: Option C
    ? = (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

    Answer: Option A
    (?)2 = (3617 ÷ 2734 - 1925)
    = [(57/17) / (75/34)] - 34/25
    = 4/25
    Therefore, ? = 2/5
    Hence, answer is option A.
  2. -676.76 + 1237.87 + 897.34 - ? = 1294.25
    1. 168.6
    2. 164.2
    3. 156.4
    4. 172.2
    5. 158.6

    Answer: Option B
    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

    Answer: Option A
    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
    Hence answer is option A.
  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

    Answer: Option B
    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
    Hence answer is option D.
  5. A merchant bought some goods worth Rs. 6,000/- and sold half of them at 12% profit. At what profit percent should he sell the remaining goods to make an overall profit of 18%?
    1. 24%
    2. 28%
    3. 18%
    4. 20%
    5. 26%

    Answer: Option A
    Let CPT = 6000/-
    Therefore, cost of half of goods CP1= 3000/-   and of  other half goods = CP2= 3000/-
    So, SP1=3000 × 1.12 = 3360/-    and      SPT= 6000 × 1.18 = 7080/-
    Thus, SP2= 7080 – 3360 = 3720/-
    Profit % = [(3720 - 3000) / (3000)] * 100 = 24%
    Hence answer is option A
