## IRDA Mock Test 1

**Q.1.** An employee may claim ₹7 for each kilometer when he travels by taxi and ₹6 for each kilometer if he drives his own car. If in one week he claimed ₹675 for travelling 90 kilometers, how many kilometers did he travel by taxi?

- 170
- 155
- 162
- 135

**Answer 4**

**Solution 1. ** Let the distance travelled by taxi be Y km.

Then, distance travelled by own car = (90 – Y) km.

Therefore, 7Y + 6 (90 – Y) = 675

Y = 675 – 540

Y – 135 km.

**Q.2.** A bonus of ₹1000 is to be divided among three people so that Rajat gets twice as much as Suraj, who receive ⅕ as much as Ganga. How much money should Ganga receive?

- ₹625
- ₹375
- ₹250
- ₹100

**Answer 1**

**Solution 2. ** Let Ganga’s share be = Y

Then, Suraj’s share = ₹(Y/5) and Rajat’s share = (2Y/5)

Therefore, [(2Y/5) + (Y/5) + Y] = 1000

8Y = 5000

Y = 625

**Q.3. **In an examination, Preeti scores 4 marks for every correct answer and loses 1 mark for every wrong attempt. If she attempted all 200 questions and scored a total of 200 marks. The number of questions she answered correctly was?

- 68
- 80
- 60
- 82

**Answer 2**

**Solution 3. **Let the number of question-answer correctly = Y

Then, number of wrong answer = (200 – Y)

Therefore, 4y – (200 – y) = 200

5y = 400

Y = 80

**Q.4.** 1250 Oranges were distributed among a group of students in a class. Each student got twice as many oranges as the number of students in that group. What is the number of students in that group?

- 45
- 50
- 25
- 100

**Answer 3**

**Solution 4. **Let the number of student in the group be = y

Then, the number of oranges given to each student on the group = 2Y

Therefore, Y x 2Y = 1250

2y^{2} = 1250

Y^{2} = 625

Y = √625 = 25

**Q.5. **The average sale of a car dealership is 15 cars per week. After the promotion, the average sale increased to 21 cars per week. What is the percentage increase in the sales of the car?

- 140%
- 40%
- 42 6/7%
- 39.33%

**Answer 2**

**Solution 5. **Number of cars sold per week originally = 15 x 7 = 105

Number of cars sold per week after promotion = 21 x 7 = 147

Increase in sale = 147 – 105 = 42

Therefore, percentage increase in sales = (42/105) x 100 = 40%

**Q.6.** Four years ago, the average age of a family of four people was 18 years. During this period, a baby was born. Today if the average age of the family is still 18 years, then what is the age of the baby?

- 2 years
- 3 years
- 1.2 years
- 2.5 years

**Answer 1**

**Solution 6. **Sum of the ages of 4 members, 4 years ago = (18 x 4) = 72 years

Sum of the ages of 4 members now = (72 + 4 x 4) = 88 years

Sum of the ages of 5 members = (18 x 5) = 90 years

Therefore, age of the baby = (90 – 88) = 2 years

**Q.7. **A number consists of two digits whose sum is 9. If 63 is subtracted from the number the digits are interchanged. What is the number?

- 63
- 72
- 81
- 96

**Answer 3**

**Solution. 7. **Let the tens digit = Y then units digit will be (9 – y)

Y = 10y + (9 – y) = 9y + 9

Number obtained by reversing the digit = 10 (9 – y) + y = 90 – 9y

Therefore, (9y + 9) – 63 = 90 – 9y

18y = 144

Y = 8 i.e. tens digit is 8 and units digit is 1

Hence the number is 81.

**Q.8. **The difference between two positive integers is 3. If the sum of their square is 369, then the sum of the number is?

- 81
- 33
- 27
- 25

**Answer 3**

**Solution 8. **Let the number be Y and (y + 3),

Then, y^{2} + (y + 3)^{2} = 369

Y^{2} + Y^{2} + 9 + 6Y = 369

2y^{2} + 6Y – 360 = 0

Y^{2} + 3Y -180 = 0

(y + 15) (y – 12) = 0

Y = 12, so the numbers are 12 and 15

Hence, the required sum = (12 + 15) = 27

**Q.9. **The sum of the squares of three numbers is 138, while the sum of their products taken two at a time is 131. What is the sum?

- 30
- 20
- 40
- 50

**Answer 2**

**Solution 9.** Let the numbers be a, b, and c.

Then, a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} = 138 and (ab + bc + ca) = 131

Now, (a + b + c)^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} +2 (ab + bc + ca) = 138 + 2 x 131 = 400

I.e. (a +b +c) = √400 = 20

**Q.10. **Reena’s age after 6 years will be 3/7th of her father’s age. 10 years ago, the ratio of their ages was 1 : 5. What is the father’s age at present?

- 45 years
- 50 years
- 56 years
- 62 years

**Answer 2**

**Solution 10.** Let reena’s age 10 years ago = Y years

Then, fathers age 10 years ago was= 5y years

(y + 10) + 6 = 3/7 x [(5y + 10) + 6]

Y + 16 = 3/7 (5y + 16)

7y + 112 = 15y + 48

8y = 64

Y = 8

Therefore, reena’s father’s present age = (5y + 10) i.e. (5 x 8 + 10) = 50 years.
