SSC CGL Mock Test 1
Q. (1) In a row of girls, position of Shreya from the left side of the row is 11th and Aishwarya from the right side of the row is 17th. If Reema is sitting just in the middle of Shreya and Aishwarya and her position from Shreya is 5th, then how many girls are sitting in the row?
- 35
- 37
- 26
- 29
- 31
Answer: 2
Solution: Position of Reema from left = Position of Shreya from left + Position of Reema from Shreya = 11 + 5 = 16th
Position of Reema from right = Position of Aishwarya from right + Position of Shreya from Aishwarya = 17 + 5 = 22nd
Total number of girls = (Sum of the positions of Reema from both sides) – 1
= (16 + 22) – 1
= 37
Directions Q. (2-3): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions that follow:
- ‘A * B’ means ‘A is the mother of B’
- ‘A x B’ means ‘A is the father of B’
- ‘A + B’ means ‘A is the sister of B’
- ‘A – B’ means ‘A is the brother of B’
- ‘A > B’ means ‘A is the son of B’
- ‘A < B’ means ‘A is the daughter of B’
Q. (2) In the expression ‘P x Q + Y > Z’, how is Z related to P?
- Daughter-in-law
- Daughter
- Wife
- Sister
- Brother
Answer: 3
Solution: P x Q → P is the father of Q
Q + Y → Q is the sister of Y
Y > Z → Y is the son of Z
Hence, Z is the wife of P.
Q. (3) In the expression ‘ X + Y > M – N’, how is X related to N?
- Son
- Daughter
- Nephew
- Niece
- Mother
Answer: 4
Solution: X + Y → X is the sister of Y
Y > M → Y is the son of M
M – N → M is the brother of N
Therefore, X is the niece of N.

Directions Q. (12-15): The table given below shows the ratio between literate and illiterate persons and the population of seven villages of a district. Study the table and select the most appropriate answers.
Villages | Ratio (literate: illiterate) | Population |
A | 9: 2 | 2354 |
B | 4: 1 | 2540 |
C | 7: 2 | 2709 |
D | 13: 4 | 5100 |
E | 5 : 3 | 3248 |
F | 5: 2 | 4921 |
G | 13: 6 | 3990 |
Q. (12) If 42% of the illiterates of village D are males, then what is the number of illiterate women in this village?
- 600
- 696
- 750
- 830
- 800
Answer: 2
Solution: Number of illiterates in village D = (4 / 17) x 5100 = 1200
Number of illiterate females in village D = (100 – 42) % of 1200
= 58% of 1200 = (58 / 100) x 1200 = 696
Q. (13) If the ratio between males and females in the village G is 11: 8 and 60% females in village G are illiterates, then how many males of this village are illiterate?
- 200
- 252
- 320
- 380
- 170
Answer: 2
Solution: Number of literates in village G = (8 / 19) x 3990 = 1680
Number of illiterate women = 60% of 1680 = (60 / 100) x 1680 = 1008
Number of illiterates in village G = (6 / 19) x 3990 = 1260
Therefore, number of illiterate males in village G = 1260 – 1008 = 252
Q. (14) What is the difference between the number of literates in Village C and the number of illiterates in Village A?
- 1500
- 1679
- 1342
- 230
- 1670
Answer: 2
Solution:
Number of literates in Village C = 7/9 x 2709 = 2107
Number of illiterates in Village A = 2/11 x 2354 = 428
Difference between the number of literates in Village C and the number of illiterates in Village A = 2107 – 428 = 1679
Q. (15) By what percentage is the number of literates in village F is more than the number of literates in village A?
- 80%
- 60%
- 82.50%
- 88%
- 75%
Answer: 3
Solution: Number of literates in village F = (5 / 7) x 4921 = 3515
Now, the number of literates in village A = (9 / 11) x 2354 = 1926
Therefore, required percentage = [(Number of literates in village F – Number of literates in village A) / Number of literates in village A] x 100
= [(3515 – 1926) / 1926] x 100
= 82.50
Directions Q. (16 -17): In each question, two equations numbered I and II are given. You have to solve both the equations and mark answer as
- If p < q
- If p > q
- If p ≥ q
- If p ≤ q
- If p = q
Q. (16) I. p = (729)^{⅔}
II. q^{2} = 7225, q > 0
Answer: 1
Solution: Equation I ⇒ p = (9^{3})^{⅔ }
⇐ p = (9)^{3 x ⅔ }= (9)^{2 }= 81
Equation II ⇒ q^{2} = (± 85)^{2}
⇐ q = ± 85
But since q > 0, therefore, q = 85
Hence, p < q
Q. (17) I. p^{2 }– 22p + 121 = 0
II. q^{2} = (1331)^{⅔ }
Answer: 5
Solution: Equation I ⇒ p^{2} – 11p – 11p + 121 = 0
⇐ p(p – 11) – 11(p – 11) = 0
⇐ (p – 11) (p – 11) = 0
⇐ p = 11
Equation II ⇒ q^{2} = (11^{3})^{⅔ }
⇐ q^{2} = (11)^{2}
⇐ q = 11
Therefore, p = q
