Check here below for the detailed solution of the above aptitude questions:

1).
Five years ago Ram’s age = 5x and Shyam’s age = 7x
Now, 5 years hence, (5x+10)/(7x+10) = 7/9
Or, 45x+90=49x+70
Or, x=5
Shyam’s present age=7×5+5=40 years
Answer: c

2).
90 kmph = (90×5)/18=25 m/second
Let the speed of the second train be x m/s.
Then, 25-x=200/30
Or, x=25 – (20/3) = (75-20)/3 = 55/3 m/seconds
X= (55/3) ×(18/5) = 66 kmph
Answer: b

3).
7m×13+10w×13 = 5m×15+14w×15
Or, 91m+130w = 75m+210w
Or, 16m = 80w
1m = 5w
Now, 7m+10 women can complete a piece of work in 13days.
= (7×5) w+10 women can complete the same piece of work in 13 days
Or 45 women can complete the piece of work in 13 days.
in (45×13)/39 = 15 days.
Answer: a

4).
Let the nos. be x and y.
Then, (x-y) : (x+y) : xy=5: 17: 132
X-y=5k, x+y=17k
Adding, we get
2x = 22k
X = 11k ………. (i)
Again xy = 132
Or, 11k×6k=132k
(From (i), x=11k)
K=2
Y=6k
Now, the product of the nos. = xy=22×12=264
Answer: d

5).
Difference between CI and SI
=6032 – 5800 = 232
Difference = 232
Rate = (2×Difference)/SI×100
= (2×232)/5800×100=8%
Answer: b

6).
Let the capacity of the tank be x litres
Part of the tank filled in 1 minute
= x/18+x/45-35
Now, 90[(x/18)+(x/45)-35] = x
Or, (x/18+x/45-x/90) = 35
Or, (5x+2x-x)/90 = 35
Or, 6x=35×90
X= (35×90)/6=35×15=525 litres
Answer: c

7).
Let the third number be x.
Then, the second number = 2x
First number = 6x
Now, x+2x+6x=180×3
Or, 9x=180×3
X=60
First number = 6×60=360
Answer: a

8).
Then, (x/5-x/8) = 18/60
Or, (8x-5x)/40 = 18/60
Or, (3x/4) = 3
Or, x = 4 km
Answer: d

9).
SP after 1st discount
=4500-4500×15/100 = Rs. 3825
Now, let the second discount be x%
3825×x/100=3825-3633.75=191.25
X= (191.25×100)/3825=5%
Answer: b

10).
Reducing percentage
=(x/x+100) ×100 = (75/175) ×100 = 300/7 = 42×6/7%
Answer: c
