1. 15
2. 26
3. 34.5
4. Cannot be determined
5. None of these

Solution: Let breadth of a rectangle be x

Then length = x + 15x/100

= x + 3x/20

= 23x/20

Area of a rectangle = 460

x 23x20 = 460

xx = 400

x = 20

1. If the length of the diagonal AC of a square ABCD is 5.2 cm, then the area of the square is :
1. 15.12 sq. cm
2. 13..52 sq.cm
3. 12.62 sq.cm
4. 10.00 sq. cm

Solution: since the square is a rhombus and the diagonals of a square are equal

Area of a rhombus =  12 product of diagonals

= 125.2 5.2

= 2.65.2

= 13.52

3.if the diagonal of two squares are in the ratio of 2:5, their area will be in the ratio of

1. 2:5
2. 2:5
3. 4:25
4. 4:5

Solution: let the diagonals of the square be 2x and 5x respectively

Area of one square =  122x 2x

= 4x2/2

Area of other square =  125x 5x

= 25x2/2

Ratio of areas of both the square = 4x22/ 25x22

= 4/25

= 4:25

1. 12
2. 24
3. 6
4. 18

Solution: a = 10, b = 8, c = 6

s= (6 + 8 + 10)/2

S = 12

Area of a triangle ABC = 12(12-10) (12-6) (12-8)

= 12(2) (6)) (4)

= 24

All the four triangles ADE, BDF,CEF and DEF are congruent, so their area are equal

Hence, area of triangle DEF = 24/4

= 6 sq cm.

1. If D and E are the mid_points of the side AB and AC respectively of the ABC in the figure given here, the shaded region of the triangle is what percent of the whole triangular region?

1. 50%
2. 25%
3. 80%
4. 75%

Solution: Since D and E are the mid_ points of AB and AC respectively

So, DE is parallel to BC and 2DE = BC

area ADEarea ABC = (DE)2 (BC)2

= (DE)2 (2DE)2

= 1/4

area of shaded partarea ABC = ¾

% = 3/4100

= 75%

1. If the length of a rectangle is increased by 20% and breadth is decreased by 20% . then its area
1. Increases by 4%
2. Decreases by 4%
3. Decreases by 1%
4. Remains unchanged

Solution: let the length of rectangle be 10

Then, area = 100

When the length is increased by 20%, new length = 12

then , new area = 96

So, area decreased by 4%

1. If the surface area of a cube is 294 sq. cm, then its volume(in sq. cm) is
1. 216
2. 125
3. 343
4. 512

Solution surface area of a cube = 294

6a2= 294

a2= 49

a = 7

Volume of a cube = a3

= 777

= 343

1. 16
2. 12
3. 15
4. 20

Solution:

when a triangle of side 3cm, 4cm and 5cm is rotated about the side 3 cm, then a cone of radius 4 cm and height 3 cm is formed

Volume of a cone = 13r2h

=  13443

= 16

1. A wooden box measures 20 cm by 12 cm by 10 cm. Thickness of the wood is 1 cm. Volume of wood to make the box (in cubic cm) is
1. 960
2. 519
3. 2400
4. 1120

Solution outer dimension of wooden box = 20 cm , 12 cm and 10 cm

Outer volume of box = 201210

= 2400 cc ( cubic centimeter)

Thickness of wood = 1 cm

Inner dimension of wooden box = 20 – 2 = 18 cm, 12 – 2 = 10 cm and 10 – 2 = 8 cm

Inner volume of box = 18108

= 1440 cc

Volume of wood in the box = 2400 – 1440  = 960 cc

1. Water flows into a tank which is 200m long and 150m wide, through a pipe of cross-section 0.3m0.2m at 20 km/hour. Then the time (in hours) for the water level in the tank to reach 8m is
1. 50
2. 120
3. 150
4. 200

Solution: speed of water = 20 km/hour

= 20000 m/hour

Area of base = 0.3m0.2m

= 0.06 sq. meter

Volume of water flows in 1 hour = area of base speed of water in 1 hour

= 0.06 20000

= 1200 cubic meter

Volume of tank upto 8 m height = 2001508

= 240000 cubic meter

Time to reach the water 8 m high = 240000/1200

= 200 hours

1. The base of a right prism is a quadrilateral ABCD. given that AB = 9 cm, BC = 14 cm, CD = 13 cm, DA = 12 cm and angle DAB = 90 degree. If the volume of the prism be 2070 cm3, then the area of the lateral surface is
1. 720
2. 810
3. 1260
4. 2070

Solution Area of quadrilateral ABCD = area of ABD + area of BCD

Since   ABD is a right angled triangle

= 92 + 122

= 225

= 15 cm

Area of ABD = 12912

= 54 sq.cm

For BCD, s = (13 + 15 + 14)/2

= 21

area of BCD =  21(21 – 13) (21 – 14) (21 – 15)

=  21876

= 84 sq. cm

Area of quadrilateral ABCD = 54 + 84

= 138 sq. cm

Volume of prism = area of baseheight

2070 = 138h

Height = 2070/138

= 15 cm

Perimeter of quadrilateral ABCD = 9 + 14 + 13 + 12

= 48 cm

Area of lateral surface = perimeter of baseheight

= 48 15

= 720 sq. cm

Dec 5 • Uncategorized • 3123 Views

The much awaited IBPS PO Mains 2017 exam was held on 26th November 2017. Many students do not even get a chance to appear in the exam. If you are among the lucky ones, who got a chance to appear in mains, you are already a step ahead of your peers but you need to work hard to clear this hurdle.

The IBPS PO selection process consists of three phases

1. Prelims

2. Mains

3. Interview.

The preliminary exam is of qualifying nature only and the final merit list will be prepared by combining your score of mains and interview in the ratio of 80:20 .

The IBPS PO prelims exam 2017 was of moderate to difficult level with a lot of changes in pattern in various shift. This led to a decrease in cut off from the previous year. So, it was expected that the mains paper will have a lot of surprises in store. And definitely this was the case observed.

The Mains exam was very difficult for the students especially for those who had just started their preparation. Changed pattern in almost all sections was a major setback in the performances of students. There were a very few conventional questions. Also the addition of descriptive test made it all the more difficult for students. So if you are not happy with your performance, don’t worry as you are not the only one who has not fared well. It can be expected that there will be a decrease in cut-off as well. So students try to be optimistic.

Sectionwise, English section was the toughest followed by Reasoning ability, Data Analysis and Interpretation and General/Economic/Financial Awareness.The English Section had extreme changes in pattern with new pattern questions of Errors, Double Fillers, and Cloze test. To add to the level of difficulty, the None of these option was present in almost all the questions in this section.

In Reasoning Section, most of the questions, apart from the ones on Data Sufficiency, followed a new and convoluted pattern that took the students to invest more time than usual in this section.The questions were very tricky and time consuming. ’Can’t be determined’ option was given in most of the questions, which added to the difficulty level of the questions. The puzzles were very tough to crack and there was only 2-3 questions from each set. No questions were asked from the computer aptitude although it was merged with the Reasoning section .

The Data Analysis and Interpretation section was not very tough yet it  was calculative & based on concepts. The questions could not be solved with tricks. New pattern Caselet and inclusion of Geometry in Data Sufficiency made this Section more difficult and complicated than ever before. Inequalities were asked in the form of Quantity 1 and Quantity 2.
