Quants Quiz Week 5-

1.It takes 36 seconds for a monorail going at a speed of 90 kmph to cross a tunnel. The same tunnel is crossed at 45 kmph by another monorail which is 100 meters shorter than the first. How long did it take for the second monorail to cross the tunnel?

Solution- Let speed of train A, s = 90kmph = 90*(5/18) m/s = 25 m/s
Time taken by train A, t = 36s
Length of train A, L’ = t*s = 36*25 = 900m
Therefore, Length of train B, L” = 900-100 = 800m
Speed of train B, s’ = 45*(5/18) = 25/2 m/s
Time taken by train B, t’ = (distance/speed) = 800÷(25/2) = 1600/25
=64 seconds

2.  For 600 men, it takes 30 minutes to dig a 405 m long tunnel having a depth of 4 m and width of 5 m. What would be the length of a tunnel, which is 10 m wide and 8 m deep, if dug by 2500 men in 6 hours?

Solution- 600 men dig 5.5*4*405 = 8910 cu.m. in half an hour
600 men dig 106920 cu.m. in 6 hours
2500 men dig 445500 cu.m. in 6 hours [(106920/600)*2500]
Again, 2500 men dig (8*10)x cu.m. in 6 hours [where x = length of canal ]
(8*10)x = 445500
X = 445500/80 = 5568.75 m

3. There are 1,66,000 males in a district with a population of 2,96,000. Half of the population is illiterate. What will be the number of literate women in the population if 60% of the men are literate?

Solution- Total population = 2,96,000
Males = 1,66,000
Females = 1,30,000
Literate males = 60% of (166000) = 99,600
Now 50% of total population is literate
So, literate females = (50% of 296000)-99600 = 48,400

4. 75 percent of fresh grapes is water while it makes up only 15 percent in the case of dry grapes. What was the weight of 250 kg of dry grapes when it was fresh?

Solution- Total mass of grapes in 250 kg of dry grapes = 85% of 250 kg = 212.5 kg
Since 75% of fresh grapes is water, 212.5 kg will be 25% of fresh grapes
So, total weight of fresh grapes = 212.5*(100/25) = 850 kg

5. Of the 1500 seats in Shatabdi Express, 80% are Chair cars while the remaining make up the Executive Class. During one journey, the train was booked to 85% of its capacity. How many Chair Car seats were empty during the journey if 96% of the Executive Class seats were booked?

Solution- Total no. of seats = 1500
No, of seats in Executive Class = 300
No. of seats in Chair Car = 1200
Total seats occupied = 85% of 1500 = 1275
Total seats occupied in Executive Class = 96% of 300 = 288
Total seats occupied in the chair car = 1275-288 = 987
Therefore, no. of seats vacant in the chair car = 1200-987 = 213
