National Institute of Design Entrance Exam SAMPLE QUESTION:

Answer the following questions: (5×2=10)


A train 125 m long passes a man, running at 5 km/hr in the same direction in which the train is going, in 10 seconds. The speed of the train is:
A.45 km/hrB.54km/hr
C.54 km/hrD.55 km/hr

Answer- B

Speed of the train relative to man= (125/10) m/sec

= (25/2) m/sec

= (25/2 * 18/5) km/hr

=45 km/hr

Let the speed of the train be x km/hr. Then, relative speed = (x – 5) km/hr.

 x – 5 = 45          x = 50 km/hr.


A, B and C can do a piece of work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. In how many days can A do the work if he is assisted by B and C on every third day?
A. 12 daysB. 15days
C. 16 daysD.18 days

Answer- B

A’s 2 day’s work = (1/20 *2)= 1/10

(A + B + C)’s 1 day’s work = (1/20 + 1/30 + 1/60)= 1/10

Work done in 3 days = ( 1/10 + 1/10)= 1/5

Now, 1/5 work is done in 3 days,

Whole work will be done in (3 x 5) = 15 days.


The average weight of 8 person’s increases by 2.5 kg when a new person comes in place of one of them weighing 65 kg. What might be the weight of the new person?
A.76 kgB.76.5 kg
C.85 kgD.Data inadequate
E.None of these

Answer- C

Total weight increased = (8 x 2.5) kg = 20 kg.

Weight of new person = (65 + 20) kg = 85 kg.


A man buys Rs. 20 shares paying 9% dividend. The man wants to have an interest of 12% on his money. The market value of each share is:
A.Rs. 12B.Rs. 15
C.Rs. 18D.Rs. 21

Answer- B

Dividend on Rs. 20 = Rs.(9/100*20)= 9/5

Rs. 12 is an income on Rs. 100.

So, Rs 9/5 is an income on Rs.(100/12 * 9/5)= Rs. 15


The percentage increase in the area of a rectangle, if each of its sides is increased by 20% is:

A. 40%                      B. 42%

C. 44%                      D. 46%

Answer- C

Let original length = x metres and original breadth = y metres.

Original area = (xy) m2.

New length = ( 120/100 x) m = (6/5 x) m

New breadth = ( 120/100 y) m = (6/5 y) m

New Area = ( 6/5 x * 6/5 y) m^2= ( 36/25 xy) m^2

The difference between the original area = xy and new-area 36/25 xy is

= (36/25)xy – xy

= xy(36/25 – 1)

= xy(11/25) or (11/25)xy

Increase % = ( 11/25 xy * 1/xy * 100) = 44%
