## SSC CGL Mock Test 1

Q. (1) In a row of girls, position of Shreya from 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?

1. 35
2. 37
3. 26
4. 29
5. 31

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?

1. Daughter-in-law
2. Daughter
3. Wife
4. Sister
5. Brother

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?

1. Son
2. Daughter
3. Nephew
4. Niece
5. Mother

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. (4-5): In these questions, the relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. The statements are followed by two conclusions. Mark your answer as:

1. If only conclusion I is true
2. If only conclusion II is true
3. If either conclusion I or II is true
4. If neither conclusion I nor II is true
5. If both the conclusions I and II are true.

Q. (4) Statement: A > B ≥ C; D < B < E

Conclusions:

1. A > D
2. C < E

Solution: From the given statement, A > B ≥ C; D < B < E , we can conclude:

• A > B, D < B. Therefore, A > D.
• B ≥ C, B < E. Therefore, C < E.

Q. (5) Statement: P < Q = O ≥ N > M

Conclusions:

1. Q > M
2. P < N

Solution: From the given statement, P < Q = O ≥ N > M, we can conclude:

• Q = O, O > M, therefore, Q > M
• P < N

Directions Q. (6-7): Read the following statement carefully and answer the question given below.

• Point Q is 6 metres towards the North of point P.
• Point T is 10 metres towards the East of point Q.

2. If the data in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question while the data in statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.
3. If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Q. (8) Six girls A, B, C, D, E and F are sitting around a circular table with an equal distance between them. If all the girls are facing the centre, then who is sitting opposite to F?

Statements:

1. F is sitting between A and D while E is sitting adjacent to B and D.
2. A is adjacent to both F and C while B is sitting adjacent to C.

Answer: c (If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question)

Solution: As per the question, we get the following two arrangements:  Therefore, either from statement I or statement II alone, we can conclude that B is sitting opposite to F. Thus, the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.

• 52 + 52 = 77
• 77 + 62 = 113

5. 7650

Solution: The pattern of the given series is:

• (5 x 5) + 5 = 30
• (30 x 6) + 5 = 185
• (185 x 7) + 5 = 1300
• (1300 x 8) + 5 = 10405
• (10405 x 9) + 5 = 93650

Q. (11) 330, 547, 673, 738, 766, (?)

1. 775
2. 873
3. 947
4. 830
5. 780

Solution: The pattern of the given series is:

• 330 + 63 + 1 = 547
• 547 + 53 + 1 = 673
• 673 + 43 + 1 = 738
• 738 + 33 + 1 = 766
• 766 + 23 + 1 = 775

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?

1. 600
2. 696
3. 750
4. 830
5. 800

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?

1. 200
2. 252
3. 320
4. 380
5. 170

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) Which village has the maximum percentage of illiterates?

1. A
2. C
3. D
4. E
5. G

Solution: From the given table, it can be found that the ratio of literates to illiterates in village A is maximum as compared to the other six villages. Therefore, village A has the maximum percentage of literates.

Q. (15) By what percentage is the number of literates in village F is more than the number of literates in village A?

1. 80%
2. 60%
3. 82.50%
4. 88%
5. 75%

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

1. If p < q
2. If p > q
3. If p ≥ q
4. If p ≤ q
5. If p = q

Q. (16) I. p = (729)

II. q2 = 7225, q > 0

Solution: Equation I ⇒ p = (93)

⇐ p = (9)3 x ⅔ = (9)2 = 81

Equation II ⇒ q2 = (± 85)2

⇐ q = ± 85

But since q > 0, therefore, q = 85

Hence, p < q

Q. (17) I. p2 – 22p + 121 = 0

II. q2 = (1331)

Solution: Equation I ⇒ p2 – 11p – 11p + 121 = 0

⇐ p(p – 11) – 11(p – 11) = 0

⇐ (p – 11) (p – 11) = 0

⇐ p = 11

Equation II ⇒ q2 = (113)

⇐ q2 = (11)2

⇐ q = 11

Therefore, p = q
