LIC AAO REASONING QUESTIONS PDF

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Let temperature on monday be a and that on thursday be y.

(x+y)/2 = 36

Now, y = 0.8x

Hence, we get Monday’s temperature as 40

Therefore, none of these is the answer.

**2) Answer (A)**

Let the numbers be a, b, c, d, and e.

a+b+c+d+e = 555

Now, (a+b)/2 = 75

a+b = 150

and c = 115

therefore, d+e = 290

Average, (d+e)/2 = 145

**3) Answer (B)**

Let the common multiple be x.

There are x girls and 3x boys.

Now, let girls score be N.

$\frac{N*x+(A+1)*3x}{4x}$ = A

N = 4A – 3(A+1)

= A – 3

Hence, the average score of girls is A-3

**4) Answer (A)**

Let the number of students be ‘x’

Given that the average is increased by $\Large\frac{1}{3}$ due to the increase of $18$ marks ( $64$ $-$ $46$ $=$ $18$ marks )

Actual increase in marks $=$ $\Large\frac{1}{3}$ $\times$ x

$\Rightarrow$ $\Large\frac{1}{3}$ $\times$ x $=$ $18$

$\therefore$ Number of students(x) $=$ $54$

**5) Answer (B)**

Let the total age of boys be ‘B’

Average age of boys = 18

$\Large\frac{B}{22}$ $=$ $18$

$\Rightarrow$ B $=$ $396$

Let the total age of Girls be ‘G’

Let the number of girls be ‘x’

Average age of girls $=$ $14$

$\Large\frac{G}{x}$ $=$ $14$

$\Rightarrow$ G $=$ $14$x

Total average of students $=$ $12$

Total age of students $=$ Total age of boys $+$ Total age of girls $=$ $396$ $+$ $14$x

Total number of students $=$ Number of boys $+$ Number of girls $=$ $22$ $+$ x

Average age of class $=$ $12$

$\Rightarrow$ $\Large\frac{396 + 14x}{22 + x}$ $=$ $12$

$\Rightarrow$ $396$ $+$ $14$x $=$ $462$ $+$ $12$x

$\Rightarrow$ $2$x $=$ $66$

$\Rightarrow$ x $=$ $33$

$\therefore$ Number of girls $=$ $33$

Total number of students $=$ $22$ $+$ $33$ $=$ $55$

**6) Answer (B)**

Run-rate = 4.5 runs per over

$1$ over $\rightarrow$ $4.5$ runs

$20$ overs $\rightarrow$ $20\times4.5$ $=$ $90$ runs

Total target $=$ $210$ runs

Remaining score $=$ $210$ $-$ $90$ $=$ $120$ runs

Remaining overs $=$ $30$ overs

$\therefore$ Required run-rate $=$ $\Large\frac{120}{30}$ $=$ $4$ runs per over

**7) Answer (B)**

Let the total number of residents be 100x

People who own car = 60k

People who own a bike = 40k

People who work in the banking sector = 25k

People in the banking sector who own a bike = 20% of 25k = 5k

Rest of the people who work in the banking sector must be owning a car

Number of people owning a car and working in banking sector = 25k – 5k = 20k

Number of people owning a car and working in non-banking sector = 60k – 20k = 40k

Required % = 40k/100k * 100 = 40%

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**8) Answer (D)**

Let Sumit scored 100x marks

Then, Amit scored 90x marks

Amit’s score is 20% more than that of Rakesh.

So, Rakesh’s score = 75x

Tina’s score = Amit’s score + 35 = 90x + 35…..(i)

Tina’s score = Sumit’s score + 20 = 100x + 20…(ii)

On comparing (i) and (ii),

90x + 35 = 100x + 20

On solving, we get x = 1.5

So, Rakesh’s score = 75x = 75* 1.5 = 112.5

And Tina’s score = 90x + 35 = 170

Difference = (170 – 112.5) = 57.5

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (C)**

Let the total salary be Rs. 100x

Amount spent on education = Rs. 30x

Amount left = Rs. 70x

Amount spent on household expenditures = 50% of Rs. 70x = Rs. 35x

Amount left = Rs. (70x – 35x) = Rs. 35x

Amount invested = 14.28% of Rs. 35x = Rs. 5x

Amount invested in Government bonds = Rs. $\frac{3}{5} * 5x$ = Rs. 3x

It is given that, 3x = 2400

Or, x = 800

So, Amount spent on education = Rs. 30x = Rs. 24000

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (E)**

Let T1 be test 1, T2 be test 2 and so on.

The average marks scored by Ankur in Test 1 = the marks scored by Ankur in test 1 = 68.

The average marks scored by Ankur in Test 1 and Test 2 = 73

Thus, 73 = (marks scored in T1 + marks scored in T2)/2

Thus, marks scored by Ankur in T2 = 73*2 – 68 = 78.

The average marks scored by Ankur in Test 1 ,Test 2and Test 3 = 69

69 = (marks scored in T1 + marks scored in T2 + marks scored in T3)/3

Thus, marks scored by Ankur in T3 = 207-146 = 61

The average marks scored by Ankur in Test 1 ,Test 2,Test 3 and Test 4 = 70

70 = (marks scored in T1 + marks scored in T2 + marks scored in T3+marks scored in T4)/4

Thus, marks scored by Ankur in T4 = 280-207 = 63.

The average marks scored by Ankur in Test 1 ,Test 2,Test 3, Test 4 and Test 5 = 72

72 = (marks scored in T1 + marks scored in T2 + marks scored in T3+marks scored in T4+marks scored in T5)/5

Thus, marks scored by Ankur in T5 = 360-280 = 80

Similarly, we can calculate the marks scored by all the students in all the tests as shown below in the table format:-

Thus, Esha scored the highest marks in Test 3.

Hence, option E is the correct answer.
