# Lakshmi-Vilas-Bank Placement-Paper : Practice questions

**Lakshmi Vilas Bank Limited (LVB) Practice questions
Question 1**

Bala buys an equal number of pens, pencils, sketch pens of Rs.2.50, Rs.3, Rs.5 respectively. How many of each did he buy if he spends Rs.168 ?

a)12 b)16 c)18 d)20

Answer: b)16

Solution:

Let us assume that he buy X number of pens, pencils and sketch pens.

Then 2.50 x X + 3 x X + 5 x X = 168

10.50X = 168

X = 168 / 10.5 = 16

Hence he buys 16 numbers of pencils, pens, sketch pens respectively.

**Question 2**

Prabha and Aarthi paid a total of Rs.600 for some good. If Prabha paid 120 more than that of Aarthi, then how much is already paid?

a)Rs.250 b)Rs.150 c)RS.550 d)Rs.240

Answer : d)Rs.240

Solution :

Let the amount paid by Aarthi be Rs.X

Then, the amount paid by Prabha = Rs. X + 120

The total amount paid = Rs.600 = X + X + 120 = 2X + 120 = X = 240

Thus the amount paid by Aarthi is Rs.240

**Question 3**

A fruit seller had some apples. He sells 30% apples at the rate of Rs.30 per apple and the remaining 315 apples at the rate of Rs.20 per apple. The total selling price is :

a)Rs.15900 b)Rs.10350 c)RS.11550 d)Rs.12420

Answer :b)Rs.10350

Solution :

Let the total number of apples be X.

Then X = 30X / 100 + 315

70X / 100 = 315

X=3150 / 7 = 450

Now 30% of X = 30 x 450 / 100 = 135

He sells 135 apples at the rate of Rs.30 per apple and 315 at the rate of Rs.20 per apple

Then the total selling price = 135 x 30 + 315 x 20 = 4050 + 6300 =Rs.10350

Hence the answer is Rs.10350

**Question 4**

Devi buys some material worth Rs.X.She gets a deduction of Rs.650 on it. After getting deduction she pays tax of Rs.169. Then find X the value if she pays Rs.6000 for that material.

a)Rs.6481 b)Rs.5689 c)RS.6819 d)Rs.5181

Answer :Rs.6481

Solution :

Let the total amount be Rs.X

After getting deduction the amount will be X – 650

And after paying the tax Rs.169,

Rs.6000 = X – 650 + 169 = X – 481.

X =6481

Hence she buys material worth Rs.6481

**Question 5**

The percentage of numbers from 11 to 75 which are divided by 5 or 7 is:

a)31 b)35 c)36 d)41

Answer : a)31

Solution:

Clearly, the numbers which divided by 5 or 7 from 11 to 75 are 14, 15, 20, 21, 25, 28, 30, 35, 40, 42, 45, 49, 50, 55, 56, 60, 63, 65, 70, 75.

The number of such numbers = 20

Total numbers from 11 to 75 = 65

Then the required percentage = (20/65) x 100 = 30.76% = 31 %

Hence the answer is 31%

**Question 6**

If P is X% of Y and Q is Y% of X then the relationship between P and Q is :

a)P < Q b)P > Q c)cannot be determined d)none of these

Answer :d) none of these

Solution:

P = X% of Y = (X/100)xY

= (XY/100)

= (Y/100)xX

= Y% of X = Q

i.e., P = Q

Thus the relationship between P and Q is P = Q.

**Question 7**

If A has weight 9kg more than B and his weight is 56% of the sum of their weights then their weights are :

a)31,40 b)33,42 c)36,45 d)41,50

Answer :b) 33,42

Solution:

Let B’s weight be X then A’s weight is X+9.

And,

X+9 = 56% of X+X+9

= 56/100 (2X+9)

25(X+9)= 14(2X+9)

3X = 99 => X=33 and X+9 = 42

So, their weights are 33kg,42kg

**Question8**

What will be the Y% of 25 when 24% of X = Y

a)16% of X b)26% of X c)36% of X d)6% of X

Answer :d) 6% of X

Solution:

Given that,

24% of X = Y i.e, 24X/100 = Y

and, Y% of 25 = 25Y/100

= (25Y/100) x (24X/100)

= (1/4) x (24X/100)

= (6/100)x X

= 6% of X

Hence the answer is 6% of X.

**Question 9**

What will come in the place of ? in the following question?

(88.128 / ? ) / {(2.4 x 0.3)/(0.2 x 1.5)} = 18

a)1.04 b)2.04 c)3.04 d)4.04

Answer : b)2.04

Solution:

Given that (88.128 / ? ) / {(2.4 x 0.3)/(0.2 x 1.5)} = 18

Let us take ? as X.

Then, (88.128/X)/{(0.72) / (0.3)} = 18

(88.128/X)/2.4 = 18

88.128/X = 18 x 2.4

88.128/X = 43.2

43.2 x X = 88.128

X = 88.128 / 43.2

X = 2.04

Hence the answer will be 2.04

**Question 10**

One-fifth of sqrt(X) x 3 = 37.2 – sqrt(12.96)

a)2601 b)2916 c)3136 d)2704

Answer : c)3136

Solution:

Given that one-fifth of sqrt(X) x 3 = 37.2 – sqrt(12.96)

i.e., 1/5 x sqrt(X) x 3 = 37.2 – 3.6

3/5 x sqrt(X) = 33. 6

sqrt(X) = 33.6 x 5/3

sqrt(X) = 11.2 x 5 = 56

X = 562 = 3136.

Hence the answer is 3136.

**Question 11**

What will come in the place of X in the following question:

3.5 – { 2.5 – [6.5 – (1.4/X)]} x 8.24 /(0.2)2 = 813.08

a)20 b)25 c)40 d)5.5

Answer : a)20

Solution:

3.5-{2.5-(6.5-(1.4/X))}x(8.24/0.04) = 813.08

3.5-{2.5-{(6.5X-1.4)/X)}x(824/4) = 813.08

3.5-{(2.5X-6.5X+1.4)/X} x 206 = 813.08

3.5-{(-4X+1.4)/X} x 206 = 813.08

3.5-{(-824X-288.4)/X} = 813.08

(3.5X+824X-288.4)/X = 813.08

827.5X-288.4 / X = 813.08

827.5X-288.4 = 813.08X

827.5X-813.08X = 288.4

14.42X = 288.4

X = 288.4 / 14.42

X = 20
