### Altair Engineering Aptitude Test Placement Papers

Candidates who are preparing hard for the Altair Engineering written test, they all can check these latest questions and answers with a detailed solution. For more latest questions please bookmark our site.

1. A 300 m long train crosses a platform in 39 sec while it crosses a signal pole in 18 sec. What is the length of the platform?

A. 320 m
B. 350 m
C. 650 m
D. None of these

Solution:

Speed = 300/18 = 50/3 m/sec.
Let the length of the platform be x meters.
Then, (x + 300)/39 = 50/3
3x + 900 = 1950 => x = 350 m.

2. A shopkeeper sold an article offering a discount of 5% and earned a profit of 23.5%. What would have been the percentage of profit earned if no discount was offered?

A. 24.5
B. 28.5
C. 30
E. None of these

Solution:

Let C.P. be Rs. 100.
Then, S.P. = Rs. 123.50
Let marked price be Rs. x. Then, 95/100 x = 123.50
x = 12350/95 = Rs. 130
Now, S.P. = Rs. 130, C.P. = Rs. 100
Profit % = 30%.

3. In a 100 metres race, A can beat B by 10 metres and B can beat C by 5 metres. In the same race, A can beat C by

A. 14.5 metre
B. 14 metre
C. 15.5 metre
D. 15 metre

Solution :

While A runs 100 metre, B runs 100-10=90 metre
While B runs 100 metre, C runs (100-5)=95 metre
=> While B runs 90 metre, C run 95100×90=95×910 = 85.5 metre
ie, when A run 100 metre, B run 90 metre and C run 85.5 metre
Hence, A beat C by (100-85.5)= 14.5 metre

4. In a colony of 70 residents, the ratio of the number of men and women is 4 : 3. Among the women, the ratio of the educated to the uneducated is 1 : 4. If the ratio of the number of educated to uneducated persons is 8 : 27, then find the ratio of the number of educated to uneducated men in the colony?

A. 1 : 2
B. 3 : 4
C. 1 : 4
D. 2 : 3
E. None of these

Solution:

Number of men in the colony = 4/7 * 70 = 40.
Number of women in the colony = 3/7 * 70 = 40.
Number educated women in the colony = 1/5 * 30 = 6.
Number of uneducated women in the colony = 4/5 * 50 = 24.
Number of educated persons in the colony = 8 /35 * 70 = 16.
As 6 females are educated, remaining 10 educated persons must be men.
Number of uneducated men in the colony = 40 – 10 = 30.
Number of educated men and uneducated men are in the ratio 10 : 30 i.e., 1 : 3.

5. An amount of Rs. 100000 is invested in two types of shares. The first yields an interest of 9% p.a and the second, 11% p.a. If the total interest at the end of one year is 9 3/4 %, then the amount invested in each share was?

A. Rs. 52500; Rs. 47500
B. Rs. 62500; Rs. 37500
C. Rs. 72500; Rs. 27500
D. Rs. 82500; Rs. 17500

Solution:

Let the sum invested at 9% be Rs. x and that invested at 11% be Rs. (100000 – x). Then,
(x * 9 * 1)/100 + [(100000 – x) * 11 * 1]/100 = (100000 * 39/4 * 1/100)
(9x + 1100000 – 11x)/100 = 39000/4 = 9750
x = 62500
Sum invested at 9% = Rs. 62500
Sum invested at 11% = Rs. (100000 – 62500) = Rs. 37500.

6. [10 + {4 * ({2/3 + 1/4} * √144/121 + 23) ÷ 12 + 5} – 3] = ?

A. 20
B. 8
C. 10
D. 15
E. 5

Solution:

[10 + { 4 * (2/3 + 1/4 * √144/121 + 23) ÷ 12 + 5} – 3] = ? [10 + { 4 * (11/12 * 12/11 + 23) ÷ 12 + 5 } – 3] = ?
= [10 + {4 * 24 ÷ 12 + 5} – 3] = ?
= [10 + 13 – 3] = ? = > 20

7. If a student walks from his house to school at 5km/hr he is late by 30 minutes. However, if he walks at 6km/hr he is late by 5 minutes only. The distance of his school from his house

A. 2.5km

8. Twelve men can complete a piece of work in 32 days. The same work can be completed by 16 women in 36 days and by 48 boys in 16 days. Find the time taken by one man, one woman and one boy working together to complete the work?

A. (64 * 36)/13 days
B. (32 * 36)/13 days
C. (96 * 36)/13 days
D. (128 * 36)/13 days
E. None of these

Solution:

12 men take 32 days to complete the work.
One man will take (12 * 32) days to complete it.
Similarly one woman will take (16 * 36) days to complete it and one boy will take (48 * 16) days to complete it.
One man, one woman and one boy working together will complete = 1/(12 * 32) + 1/(16 * 36) + 1/(48 * 16)
= 1/(4 * 3 * 16 * 2) + 1/(16 * 4 * 9) + 1/(16 * 3 * 4 * 4)
= 1/64(1/6 + 1/9 + 1/12) = 1/64 * 13/36 of the work in a day.
They will take (64 * 36)/13 days to complete the work working together.

9. A tank 3 m long, 2 m wide and 1.5 m deep is dug in a field 20 m long and 14 m wide. If the earth dug out is evenly spread out over the field, the level of the field will raise by nearly?

A. 0.299 cm
B. 0.29 cm
C. 2.98 cm
D. 4.15 cm

10. A table is bought for Rs.400/- and sold at Rs.500/- find gain or loss percentage

A. 25% Loss
B. 30% Gian
C. 25% Gian
D. 30% Loss

Solution:
Formula = (Selling price ~ Cost price)/Cost price × 100
= (500 – 400)/400 = 25% gain

11. A is 2 1⁄3 times as fast as B. If A gives B a start of 80 m, how long should the race course be so that both of them reach at the same time?

A. 170 metre
B. 150 metre
C. 140 metre
D. 160 metre

Solution :
Solution 1

Speed of A : Speed of B = 7⁄3 : 1 = 7 : 3

It means, in a race of 7 m, A gains (7-3)=4 metre

If A needs to gain 80 metre, race should be of 74×80 = 140 metre

Solution 2

If A is n times as fast as B and A gives B a start of x meters, then the length of the race course , so that A and B reaches the winning post at the same time = x(nn−1) metres

Here, n=213=73 , x=80

Length of the race course = x(nn−1)=80⎛⎝⎜⎜7373−1⎞⎠⎟⎟=80(77−3)=80×(74)=20×7=140 metre

12. If a : b = 2 : 3 and b : c = 4 : 3, then find a : b : c

A. 8 : 12 : 9
B. 3 : 7 : 10
C. 2 : 7 : 3
D. 8 : 12 : 3

Solution:

a:b=2:3
b:c=4:3=(4∗3/4:3∗3/4)
=3:9/4
a:b:c=2:3:9/4
=8:12:9

13. If Rs. 64 accounts to Rs. 83.20 in 2 years, what will Rs. 86 amount to in 4 years at the same rate per cent pr annum?

A. 51.60 Rs.

A. 40km/hr
B. 60km/hr
C. 90km/hr
D. 120km/hr

Solution:

Initial speed = 80km/hr
Total distance = 80 * 10 = 800km
new speed = 800/4 =200km/hr
Increase in speed = 200 – 80 = 120km/hr
