## Correction in Quantitative Question No.4 by Ankit

by Ankit
(India)

In Question number 4 whose solution reads as
Then k*16.4+1*15.4 + (k+1)*15.8 (16.4-15.8)k = 15.8 - 15.4 k=0.4/0.6 = 2/3 so required ratio = 2:3

There should be an equal to rather than a "+" and the solution should read as.

Then k*16.4+1*15.4 = (k+1)*15.8 (16.4-15.8)k = 15.8 - 15.4 k=0.4/0.6 = 2/3 so required ratio = 2:3

## Quantitative Question 8

(Rasol)

I think quantitative question No.8 is solved wrongly. The answer is taking 16 instead of 15. Any feedback shall be appreciated.

## The moon has no gravity ??? What planet are you from ?

Neither aircraft would be able to fly for multiple reasons, none of which has anything to do with gravity, which the moon does have, it is simply less than that of the earth because of the lower mass of the moon.

The aircraft would not be able to fly because there is no atmosphere on the moon. This would then not allow the internal combustion engines to operate since no oxygen = no combustion. Second, even if the motors could be made to run (bottled air) with no atmosphere, there is nothing for the rotor blades or propellers to create lift from so no lifting or forward movement could occur.

## Question No 10

by Abhijeet Choudhury
(Mumbai)

Milk:Water = 7:2
i.e milk is 567 ml and water is 162ml
now to make them equal in ratio i.e 1:1 we have to add water 567-162=405ml
now it will be 567:(162+405) = 567:567 = 1:1

this will make both the liquids equal in quantity

## Wrong Answer Provided For Question 10

(Abuja, Nigeria)

The quantity of milk in the mixture is
7/(7+2) X 729
= 7/9 X 729
= 567mL
The quantity of water then shall be
729 - 567 = 162mL

If the final mixture would contain half milk and half water, there must be equal quantity of both.
So in order to make up for water, we'll need to add
567mL - 162mL
= 405mL of water

## Solution for question No.10

by mayur nenwani
(Rajkot, gujarat, india)

As it is stated that 729 ml of mixture containing milk and water in ratio of 7:2.

Solution:

Milk portion : 7/(7+2)*(729) = 567ml
Water portion : 2/(7+2) * (729) = 162ml

Difference of ml b/w milk n water = 405ml

So for making ration of 1:1 i.e half of both, 405ml water should be added so that it contain 567ml of milk and water each.

## Question 6 in Math (enough information to answer)

Comment that not enough information for Math #6 to be solved is in error.

Start at the end, last 15 minutes (at 45 minutes) require 20,000 lbs for payload but additional will be needed to carry weight of fuel. So 2 fuel rockets total needed at 45 minutes.
20,000 plus 20,000 fuel require 40,000 plus fuel needed to carry that load at 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Hence, 2 rockets plus 1 additional to carry the 2 fuel rockets plus 1 additional to carry the additional fuel rocket. So 4 fuel rockets needed from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
Same logic applies from 15 minutes to 30 minutes (yielding 8 rockets) and from 0 minutes to 15 minutes (yielding 16 rockets).

Add 16 + 8 + 4 + 2 = the grand total of 30 rockets.

## Question no 10---Solution Must Read

by Samast
(Pune)

In this question the data is not sufficient.
Actually he forgot to mention the ratio at the last...that is 7:3.

the solution is right.
the correct question statement is--

729ml of mixture contains milk and water in the ratio 7:2 how much more water is to be added to get a new mixture containing milk and water in the ratio 7:3?

by Dhaval Bhatti
(Rajkot, Gujarat, India)

I think correct answer is 405. Following is the explanation for it. We know that 567 ml is milk and 162 is water..now out target is to reach 567 ml of water to fulfill the condition..so we must add 405 ml of water to the given mixture... therefore the correct answer is 405.

## Question No.6 is Awful

Question 6 in the math section is awful. It is indeterminable based on the information provided (or at least the way its worded).

a) You don't take into account that the fuel burns continuously and therefore the weight constantly decreases.

b) you don't indicate how much the rocket engine itself weighs - only that it contains 10000 lbs of fuel. Even if the rocket was one pound, you'd still require more rockets.

c) you don't indicate how much fuel each engine can hold, you only mention the rate at which it burns. Based on your answer, its implied that its 10,000, but it could hold more or less.

## Question 6

Unless I missed something, which is possible, question 6 in the first section does not give you the information necessary to make the assumptions shown in the answer. No where does it tell you that there are 16 rocket engines in the first stage.

## Quantitative Aptitude Testing Question 4

(Buxar )

Hi

I am going to suggest a good method

This type of questions can be solved easily using AVERAGE-METHOD

Boys'average Girls'average

16.4 15.4

15.8 (Combined avg)

Cross diffrence: 0.4 0.6

Required ratio is: 0.4/0.6=2/3

## How Much of Water is to be Added...?

729 ml of a mixture contains milk and water in ratio 7:2. How much of the water is to be added to get a new mixture containing half milk and half water?

given mixture = 729
ratio = 7:2
milk = 7*729/9 = 567
water = 162
so for half water and half milk
567milk = (162+405)water
so extra water = 405ml
