Convergys Aptitude Test Sample Papers

1. The ratio of the age of a man & his wife is 4:3.After 4 years this ratio will be 9:7. If the time of marriage the ratio was 5:3, then how many years ago were they married?

D.none of these

Answer: C

The age of a man is 4x. The age of his wife is 3x. After 4 years their ratio's will be 9:7 i,e, 4x + 4/3x+4 = 9/7 28x - 27x = 36 - 28 x = 8. Age of a man 
is 4x = 4*8 = 32 years. Age of his wife is 3x = 3*8 = 24 yeras. Let us assume 'y' years ago they were married, the ratio was 5:3 i.e. 32 - y/24 - y = 5/3 y = 12 years.
i.e. 12 years ago they were married.

2. A,B,C enter into partnership  invests 3 times as much as B invests and B invests two third of what C invests. At the end of the year ,the profit earned is Rs 6600. what is the share of B ?

D.none of these

Answer: A

Let C's capital = Rs.x B's capital = Rs (2/3) * x A's capital = 3 * (2/3) * x = Rs 2x ratio of their capitals = 2x : (2/3) * x:x = 6x : 2x;3x B's share = Rs 6600(2/11) = Rs 1200.

3. A can do a piece of work n 7 days of 9 hours each and B alone can do it in 6 days of 7 hours each. How long will they take to do it working together 8 2/5 hours a day?

D.none of these

Answer: B

A can complete the work in (7 x 9) = 63 hours. B can complete the work in (6 x 7) = 42 hours. A's 1 hour's work = (1/63) and B's 1 hour's work = (1/42)
(A + B)'s 1 hour's work = (1/63) + (1/42) = (5/126) Both will finish the work in (126/5)hrs. Number of days of (42/5)hrs each = (126 x 5) / (5 x 42) = 3 days.

4. Bucket P has thrice the capacity as Bucket Q. It takes 60 turns for Bucket P to fill the empty drum. How many turns it will take for both the buckets P&Q, having each turn together to fill the empty drum?

D.none of these

Answer: B

Let the capacity of P be x litre. Then capacity of Q = x/3 litre. Capacity of the drum = 60x litre. Required number of turns = 60x/ (x+(x/3)) = 60x * 3/4x = 45

5. A train running at 54 kmph takes 20 sec to pass a platform. Next it takes 12 sec to pass a man walking at 6kmph in the same direction in which the train is going.Find the length of platform ?

A.160 m  
B.140 m   
C.112 m
D.none of these

Answer: B

Relative speed w.r.t man = 54 - 6 = 48kmph The length of the train is 48 * 5/18 * 12 =160m Time taken to pass platform = 20 sec Speed of the 
train = 54 * 5/18 =15m/s 160+x = 20 *15 x = 140m Length of the platform is 140m

6. A man can row 7 1/2kmph in still water. If in a river running at 1.5 km an hour, if takes him 50 min to row to place and back. how far off is the place ?

A.3 km 
B.6 km 
C.9 km
D.None of these

Answer: A

Speed downstream =(7.5+1.5)km/hr=9 km/hr; Speed upstream=(7.5-1.5)kmph=6kmph. Let the required distance be x km.then, x/9+x/6=50/60.
2x+3x=(5/6*18) 5x=15 x=3. Hence,the required distance is 3km.

7. How many 4-letter words with or without meaning, can be formed out of the letters of the word, 'LOGARITHMS', if repetition of letters is not allowed?



'LOGARITHMS' contains 10 different letters. Required number of words = Number of arrangements of 10 letters, taking 4 at a time. = 10P4 = (10 x 9 x 8 x 7) 5040.

8. A man spends 2/5 of his salary on house rent, 3/10 of his salary on food, and 1/8 of his salary on conveyance. if he has Rs 1400 left with him, find his expenditure on conveyance?

D.none of these

Answer: B

Part of the salary left = 1 - [2/5 + 3/10 + 1/9] = 1 - 33/40 = 7/40 Let the monthly salary be Rs x. Then, 7/40 of x = 1400 x = [1400 * 40] / 7 x = 8000
Expenditure on food = 3/10 * 8000 = Rs 2400 Expenditure on conveyance = 1/8 *8000 = Rs 1000

9. A man invested 3/3 of his capital at 7% , 1/4 at 8% and the remainder at 10% If his annual income is Rs.561. The capital is:

D.none of these

Let the capital be Rs. x. Then, (x/3 + 7/100 + 1) + (x/4 + 8/100 + 1) + (5x/12 + 10/100 +1) = 561 7x/300 + x/50 + x/24 = 561 51x = 561 * 600 x = 6600.

10. A man buys a watch for Rs.1950 in cash and sells it for Rs. 2200 at a credit of 1 year. If the rate of interest is 10% per annum, the man:

A.gains Rs.55
B.gains Rs.50 
C.losses Rs.30
D.gains Rs.30

Answer: B

S.P. = P.W. of Rs.2200 due 1 year hence = Rs. [2200 x 100/100 + (10 x 1)] = Rs.2000. Gain = Rs.(2000 - 1950) = Rs.50.

Answer: C

Let the cost of single ticket be $x. The cost of 3 tickets is $3x. The cost of 5 tickets is $5x. The amount saved, when 5 tickets are purchased 
at sale = 5x - 3x = $2x The percent of the amount saved to the original price of the 5 tickets = (2x/5x)*100 = 40%

14. An investor purchased a shares of stock at a certain price. If the stock increased in price Rs 0.25 per share and the total increase for the x shares was Rs 12.50, how many shares of stock had been purchased?

15. 72519 x 9999 = ?


Answer: A

72519 x 9999 = 72519 x (10000 - 1) = 72519 x 10000 - 72519 x 1 = 725190000 - 72519 = 725117481.

16. Which of the following numbers will completely divide (325 + 326 + 327 + 328) ?


Answer: D

(325 + 326 + 327 + 328) = 325 x (1 + 3 + 32 + 33) = 325 x 40 = 324 x 3 x 4 x 10 = (324 x 4 x 30), which divisible by 30.

17. A cylindrical container has a radius of eight inches with a height of three inches. Compute how many inches should be added to either the radius or height to give the same increase in volume?

A.16/5 inches
B.16/3 inches
C.16/7 inches
D.none of these

Answer: B

Let x be the amount of increase. The volume will increase by the same amount if the radius increased or the height is increased.
So, the effect on increasing height is equal to the effect on increasing the radius. i.e., (22/7)*8*8*(3+x) = (22/7)*(8+x)*(8+x)*3 Solving the
quadratic equation we get the x = 0 or 16/3. The possible increase would be by 16/3 inches.

18. One year ago the ratio of Ramu & Somu age was 6:7 respectively. Four years hence their ratio would become 7:8. How old is Somu ?

D.none of these

Answer: C

Let us assume Ramu &Somu ages are x &y respectively. One year ago their ratio was 6:7 i.e x-1 / y-1 = 7x-6y=1 Four years hence their ratios,
would become 7:8 i.e x-4 / y-4 = 7 / 8 8x-7y=-4 From the above two equations we get y= 36 years. i.e Somu present age is 36 years.

19. What is the length of a running train? I.The train crosses a man in 9 seconds. II.The train crosses a 240 metre long platform in 24 seconds.

A.I alone is sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer.
B.II alone is sufficient while I not alone sufficient to answer.
C.Either I or II alone sufficient to answer.
D.Both I and II are necessary to answer.

Answer: D

Time taken by train to cross a man = Length of train/Speed of train = Speed = l/9 ...
(i) Time taken by train to cross a platform = (Length of train + Length of platform)/Speed of train = Speed = (l+240)/24...
(ii) From (i) and (ii), we get l/9 = (l+240)/24 Thus, l can be obtained. So both I and II are necessary to get the answer

20. If Rs.10 be allowed as truedscount on a bill of Rs.110 at the end of a certain time ,then discount allowed on the same sum due at the end of double the time ?
