# Quantitative Section : Quantitative Ability

Below are the few important questions with answers on Multiple choice. Question 211

1. If j/m = 0.625, then m/j is equal to which of the following?

1. 1.50
2. 2.67
3. 0.678
4. 9.76
5. 675

Explanation: Make the base on both sides of the equation same. 8 is similar as 24. So 24x  = 24,which means that x = 8

2. If h - 5 = 5 (1 - h), then what is the value of h?

1. 0.33
2. 9.56
3. 5.987
4. 3.876
5. 1.34

Explanation: The fraction d/n is a reciprocal of n/d. To find the numerical value of d/n, just flip the numerical value of n/d, which is 0.625. Your calculation will tell you that 1/0.625 = 1.6.

3. Points P, N Y and R are arranged in a line in the same order. If PY = 13, NR = 14 and PR = 21 then NY =

1. 43
2. 9
3. 8
4. 89
5. 4

Explanation: To solve the problem algebraically isolate u one step at a time. First multiply through by 4 on the right, u - 4 = 4 - 4u. Next add 3x to each side and then add 3 to each side to get 4u = 6. Divide each side by 4 to get u = 6/4 or 1.5

4. The distance between the points (-5, 8) and (-5, -12) is

1. 90
2. 76
3. 15
4. 23
5. 78.50

Explanation: Notice that the m coordinate in both points is the same. So you just have to find the difference in the n coordinates. The difference is 5 - (-18) = 23

5. If the cube root of the square root of a number is 4, what is the number?

1. 87
2. 64
3. 148
4. 10
5. 157

Explanation: Translate the whole into math's 3√x = 4. Now take away. First cube both sides. √x = 8. Now square both sides; x = 64

6. If the ratio of sec p to cosec p is 1:4, then the ratio of tan p to cot p is

1. 1:16
2. 5:48
3. 9:78
4. 3:45
5. 4:45

Explanation: The ratio which is given can be written in fractional form like sec p/cosec p = 1/5. The secant and cosecant can also be expressed in terms of sine and cosine. 1/cos p/1/sin p = 1/5. The cotangent is the reciprocal of the tangent so cot p = 5. Therefore the correct answer would be (a)

7. If i/j = 0.694, then j/i is equal to which of the following?

1. 8.45
2. 2.67
3. 3.45
4. 9.41
5. 4.26

Explanation: Make the base on both sides of the equation  same. 243 is similar as 25. So 25x  = 25,which means that g = 1

8. If 0 < w < 1 then all of the following must be true except:

1. w2 < n
2.    28w
3. w < w
4.    24w
5.    89w

Explanation: Plug in 0.4 for w. Now w2 = 0.25, square root of w = 0.707, w = 0.4, - w = - 0.4, -w = -0.4, and 1/w = 2. This makes A B D and E true and (c) is false.

9. If v(p) =2p2+ 2 then what is the value of v(p + 4)?

1. 2v
2. 98/76
3. 43
4. 56v
5. 2p2+ 16p +34

Explanation: Since there are variables in the answer choices you should insert in. Try p = 3. We are trying to find v(3 + 4) = v(7) = 2(7)2 + 2 which is 100 our target number. Now insert 3 in for p in the answer choices to see which answer choice goes with the target its (e)

10. If (b - 3) = 4b - 7, then which of the following could be the value of b?

1. 15
2. 987
3. 18/87
4. 2
5. 89

Explanation: The first equation is b - 3 = 4b - 7, which simplifies to b = 4/3 but this is not the answer. Let us look at the second equation - (b - 3) = 4b - 7. This simplifies to 3 - b = 4b - 7 that means 5b = 10 and b = 2.
