LakshmiVilas Bank question paper

Two traders, Chetan and Michael, were involved in the buying and selling of MCS shares over five trading days. At the beginning of the first day, the MCS share was priced at Rs.100, while at the end of the fifth day it was priced at Rs.110. At the end of each day, the MCS share price either went up by Rs.10, or else, it came down by Rs.10. Both Chetan and Michael took buying and selling decisions at the end of each trading day. The beginning price of MCS share on a given day was the same as the ending price of the previous day. Chetan and Michael started with the same number of shares and amount of cash, and had enough of both below are some additional facts about how Chetan and Michael traded over the five trading days.

(5) Both had the same number of shares.-Answer

5. What could have been the maximum possible increase in combined cash balance of Chetan and Michael at the end of the fifth day?

(1) Rs.3700 (2) Rs.4000 (3) Rs.4700 (4) Rs.5000 -Answer(5) Rs.6000

Explanation:

Here the total increase in the price of the share is Rs.10.

Hence, of the five days, there must be an increase for three of the five days and there is decrease for two days.

1. (3) Given that, Michael sold 10 shares only once. Hence, the price is more than 110 for only one day and on all the remaining days it is not more than 110. We can get the share price as 120 with three increase and two decreases. But as the three increases are on consecutive days, the three days can be (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3) or (Day 2, Day 3, Day 4,) or (Day 3, Day 4, Day 5). But it cannot be (Day 1, Day 2, Day3), the reason being that the price will be more than 110 on day 2 as well as Day 3, It cannot be (Day 3, Day 4, Day 5) the reason being that the price cannot be 120 on any of the days.

The increase must be on (Day 2, Day3, Day4,).

There is a decrease on Day 1 and Day 5

The price at the end of Day 3 is 100-10+10+10=110.

2. (2) Given that Chetan ended up with Rs.1300 more than Michael at the end of Day 5. The maximum possible change in the amount with Chetan with Rs.1300, as he sells shares on three days and buys shares on the remaining two days.

Michael should not have sold any shares and also he should not have bought any shares.

The share price did not cross 110 or did not fall below 90 on any of the days. The price of the share at the end of Day 4 cannot be 120. It must be 100.

3. (1) Chetan will sell 10 shares each for three days and buy shares for two days. Hence, if he had x shares at the beginning of Day 1, he finally had (x-10) shares at the end of Day 5. Michael had (x+10) shares on Day 5. He bought 10 shares on one of the five days i.e shares price should be less than 90 on that day. It should be 80. Hence, the only possibility is 100-90-80-90-100-100 Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 It is 90 at the end of Day 3.

4. (5) If the difference in the shares is 10 or more, the difference in the amounts would be close to Rs.1000, but it is given the difference is Rs.100.

The number of shares with them must be the same. The following table represents one of the possibilities where Michael ended up with Rs.100 less than Chetan, while both of them ended up with the same number of shares.

Beginning Ending

Day 1 100 110

Day 2 110 120

Day 3 120 110

Day 4 110 100

Day 5 100 110

5.(4) The maximum possible cash balance is possible, when both of them sell the maximum number of shares.

That happens in the following case.

Beginning Ending

Day 1 100 110

Day 2 110 120

Day 3 120 130

Day 4 130 120

Day 5 120 110

The change in amount with Chetan

= (110×10) + (120×10) + (130×10) – (120×10) – (110×10) =1300

That with Michael = (120×10) + (130×10) + (120×10) = 3700

Total = Rs.5000.

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
