 # Sample Aptitude Questions of Commscope

DIRECTIONS for the questions 1 to 10:  Solve the following question and mark the best possible option.
1. Dharma invested Rs. P for 3 years in scheme A which offered 12% p.a. simple interest. She also invested Rs. P + 400 in scheme B which offered 10% compound interest (compounded annually), for 2 years. If the amount received from scheme A was less than that received from scheme B, by Rs. 304, what is the value of P?
1. Rs. 1400
2. Rs. 1000
3. Rs. 1500
4. Rs. 900
5. Rs. 1200
As given, P + 3*12*P/100 + 304 = (P+400)(1+11/100)2
P(0.15)= 180;
P= 1200
2. Shiva gives 20% of her monthly salary to his mother, 50% of the remaining salary he invests in an insurance scheme and PPF in the respective ratio of 5 : 3 and the remaining he keeps in his bank account. If the sum of the amount he gives to his mother and that he invests in PPF is Rs. 12,600, how much is Shiva’s monthly salary?
1. Rs. 36,000
2. Rs. 64,000
3. Rs. 42,000
4. Rs. 40,000
5. None of these
Let the total amount be x.
0.2x = given to mother.
0.25x= invested in insurance
0.15x= invested in ppf
0.4x= Bank account
Given, 0.2x+0.15x = 0.35x = 12600; x=36000
3. The respective ratio of radii of two right circular cylinders (A & B) is 4 : 7. The respective ratio of the heights of cylinders A and B is 2 : 1. What is the respective ratio of volumes of cylinders A and B?
1. 25 :42
2. 23 : 42
3. 32 : 49
4. 30 : 49
5. 36 : 49
VA:VB = πrA2hA : πrB2hB
= 42x2 : 72x1 = 32:49
4. If (x – 3)2 + (y – 5)2 + (z – 4)2 = 0 , then the value of x2/9 + y2/25 + z2/16 is
1. 12
2. 9
3. 3
4. 1
(x – 3)2 + (y – 5)2 + (z – 4)2 = 0
⇒ x – 3 = 0 ⇒ x= 3
Y – 5 = 0 ⇒ y = 5
Z – 4 = 0 ⇒ z = 4 5. If 4x/3 + 2P = 12 for what value of P, x = 6?
1. 6
2. 4
3. 2
4. 1
When x = 6, (4 * 6)/3 + 2P = 12
⇒ 8 + 2P = 12
⇒ 2P = 12 – 8 = 4
⇒ P = 2
6. In ΔABC, ∠A + ∠B = 65°, ∠B + ∠C = 140°, then find ∠B.
1. 40°
2. 25°
3. 35°
4. 20°
∠A + ∠B = 65°
∴ ∠C = 180° - 65° = 115°
∠B + ∠C = 140°
∴ ∠B = 140° - 115° = 25°
7. There are two motor cycles (A & B) of equal cost price. Motorcycle A was sold at a profit of 14% and motorcycle B was sold for Rs. 4,290/- more than its cost price. The net profit earned after selling both the motor cycles (A & B) is 20%. What is the cost price of each motorcycle?
1. Rs. 16,500/-
2. Rs. 16,000/-
3. Rs. 15,500/-
4. Rs. 71,500/-
5. Rs. 17,000/-
Let the cost price of each motorcycle be Rs. ‘A’. So SP of A = 1.14A and SP of B = A + 4290. Total CP = 2A. As net profit is given to be 20% on both the motorcycles, so we can form the equation as (2.14A + 4290 - 2A)/2A = 20%. Solving it further, we get (0.14A + 4290)5 = 2A. Solving this equation, we get value of A as 16,500. Hence answer is option A
8. Raman invested Rs. P for 2 years in scheme A which offered 20% p.a. compound interest (compounded annually). He lent the interest earned from scheme A to Shubh, at the rate of 7.5% p.a. simple. If at the end of 2 years, Shubh gave Rs. 3036 to Raman and thereby repaid the whole amount(actual loan + interest), what is the value of P?
1. Rs. 6000
2. Rs. 5800
3. Rs. 6800
4. Rs. 5400
5. Rs. 6400
P*(1.2)2 = 1.44P
Interest = P – 1.44P = 0.44P
0.44P + (0.44P * 7.5 * 2)/100 = 3036
Solving, we get P = 6000.
9. Three persons work independently on a problem. If the respective probabilities that they will solve it are 1/3, 1/4 and 1/5, then the probability that none can solve it is
1. 1/5
2. 1/3
3. 2/5
4. None of these
