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). Let the distance from the office to his
house be x km.

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 1

^{st}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**
