### Questions from past CET papers (51 to 60):

**Directions (Q.51 to Q.55) Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below it**

**P, Q, R, S, T, V and W are sitting around a circle facing the centre. R is second to the right of T who is third to the right of P. S is third to the left of P and second to the right of V. Q is not an immediate neighbor of R.**

**51. Who is to the immediate right of S?**

(a) W (b) R (c) T (d) Data inadequate (e) None of these

**52. Who is second to the right of W?**

(a) P (b) V (c) Q (d) Data inadequate (e) None of these

**53. What is T’s position with respect to W?**

(a) Fourth to the left (b) Second to the left (c) Fifth to the left (d) Third to the left (e) Fifth to the right

**54. Who is to the immediate left of Q?**

(a) P (b) W (c) V (d) T (e) Data inadequate

**55. In which of the following combinations is the third person sitting between the first and the second person?**

(a) SRW (b) VTS (c) QVP (d) WPR (e) VST

Solution: Start with T, R is second to the right of T and P is third to the left of T. S will be between R and T. As Q is not R’s neighbor, W will occupy that position. Considering this, we will get the following arrangement:

**56. What approximate value should come in place of the question mark in the following question?**

**312 × 55 + 216 × 39 = ?**

(a) 28400 (b) 18500 (c) 20600 (d) 22500 (e) 25600

Solution: As one needs to find the approximate value, without getting into actual calculation, 312*55 will be close to 17000 and 216*39 will be close to 8000. Hence, answer will be close to 25000. Answer: 25600

**57. What should come in place of the question mark in the following question?**

**218 + (676)^1/2 × 25 = (?)^1/2 × 108.5**

(a) 64 (b) 8 (c) 25 (d) 16 (e) None of these

Solution: square root of 676 is 26 and 26*25 = 650 + 218 = 868. 108.5*8 = 868 and square of 8 will give you the answer. Answer: 64

**58. What should come in place of the question mark in the following question?**

**40% of 2600 + 35% of 2800 = ? of 4040**

(a) 100 (b) 50 (c) 40 (d) 60 (e) 80

Solution: 40* of 2600 = 1040 and 35% of 2800 is 980. Sum of these = 2020 which is 50% of 4040. Answer: 50

**59. What approximate value should come in place of the question mark in the following question?**

**25.14 × 14.46 – 5/6 of 31.25 = ?% of 8904.69**

(a) 13 (b) 11 (c) 9 (d) 3 (e) 7

Solution: 25.14*14.46 is approximately 365 and 5/6 of 31.25 will be around 26 which gives us 339 which can be approximated to 340. 340/8900 is around 3%. Answer: 3

**60. What approximate value should come in place of the question mark in the following question?**

**5.5 + 2/3 of 569 = 24.16 × ?**

(a) 12 (b) 18 (c) 16 (d) 20 (e) 22

Solution: 5.5 + 380 is around 385. 385/25 = 15.something. Answer: 16
