To help you get an idea about the type of questions asked in the **NPAT Entrance Exam**, we have provided a few sample questions for your reference here.

Q) The average age of 13 girls and their teachers is 15 years. If the teacher's age is excluded, then the average age is reduced by 2 years. What is the teacher's age?

- A) 39 years
- B) 41 years
- C) 36 years
- D) 43 years

**Answer: C) 41 years**

**Explanation:**

- Total number of people = 13 girls + 1 teacher = 14 people
- Sum of the age of 13 girls and a teacher = 14 × 15 = 210 years
- It is given that if the teacher's age is excluded, then the average age reduces by 2 years.
- The average in this case = 15 - 2 = 13 years
- Sum of age of 13 years = 13 × 13 = 169 years
- The age of the teacher = Sum of the age of 13 girls and a teacher - Sum of the age of 13 years
- The age of the teacher = 210 - 169 = 41 year

Q) A train 220m long running at a speed of 60km/hr. At what time will it pass a man who is running at 6km/hr in the direction opposite to that in which the train is going?

- A) 12 seconds
- B) 17 seconds
- C) 13 seconds
- D) 14 seconds

**Correct Answer: A) 12 seconds**

**Explanation: **

Step 1: Determine the speeds of the train and the man.

- Speed of the Train = 60 Kmph
- Speed of the Man = 6 Kmph

Step 2: Calculate the relative speed. Since they are moving in opposite directions, we add the two speeds.

- Relative Speed = Speed of the Train + Speed of the Man = 60 Kmph + 6 Kmph = 66 Kmph

Step 3: Convert the relative speed from Kmph to m/s by multiplying by 5/18.

- Speed per Second = Relative Speed * (5/18) = 66 Kmph * (5/18) = 55/3 m/s

Step 4: Calculate the time taken to cross each other. This is done by dividing the length of the train by the speed per second.

- Time taken to cross each other = Length of the Train / Speed per Second = 220 m / (55/3) m/s = (220*3)/55 s = 12 s

Step 5: Hence, the right choice is 5. This means it takes 12 seconds for the train and the man to cross each other.

Q) How many following numbers are divisible by 132?

264, 396, 468, 762, 968, 2178, 5184, 6336

- A) 4
- B) 5
- C) 6
- D) 7

**Correct Answer: A) 4**

**Explanation: **

Step 1: Identify the co-prime numbers.

- Here, 3, 4, and 11 are pairwise co-prime numbers.

Step 2: Calculate the product of the co-prime numbers.

- The product is 132, which is equal to 3 × 4 × 11. Also, 3, 4, and 11 are factors of 132.

Step 3: Understand the divisibility rule.

- If a number is divisible by 3, 4, and 11, the number will also be divisible by their product, 132. Conversely, if a number is not divisible by 3, 4, or 11, it is not divisible by 132.

Step 4: Check the divisibility of each number.

Number |
Divisible by 3 |
Divisible by 4 |
Divisible by 11 |
Divisible by 132 |

264 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

396 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

462 | Yes | No | Yes | No |

792 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

968 | No | Yes | Yes | No |

2178 | Yes | No | Yes | No |

5184 | Yes | Yes | No | No |

6336 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

Step 5: Conclude the answer.

- Hence, only 264, 396, 792, and 6336 are divisible by 132. So, the answer is 4. This means there are 4 numbers that are divisible by 132.

Q) A money lender lends out Rs. 25000 in two parts, one at 8% and the other is at 8.5%. If the total annual income on the amount is Rs.2031.25, the money lent at 8% is?

- A) Rs.12500
- B) Rs.6250
- C) Rs.10000
- D) Rs.18,750

**Correct Answer: B) Rs.6250**

**Explanation: **

Step 1: Define the unknown.

- Let the sum lent at 8% be Rs. x. Then, the sum lent at 9% = Rs. (25,000 – x).

Step 2: Calculate the total income.

- Total income = (income from 8% + income from 9%). Given, total income = Rs. 2,187.50.

Step 3: Calculate the income from each part.

- Income from 8% = (8/100) x.
- Income from 9% = (9/100)(25,000 – x).

Step 4: Set up the equation for total income.

- Total income = (8/100) x + (9/100)(25,000 – x) = (8/100) x + (9/100) x – (9/100) x + 2,250 = (1/100) x + 2,250.

Step 5: Solve the equation.

- Given, total income = Rs. 2,187.50. Therefore, (1/100) x + 2,250 = 2,187.50.
- (1/100) x = 2,187.50 – 2,250.
- (1/100) x = – 62.50.
- x = – 62.50 x 100.
- x = Rs. 6,250.

Step 6: Hence, the sum lent at 8% is Rs. 6,250. This means that out of the total Rs. 25,000, Rs. 6,250 was lent at an interest rate of 8%.

Q) If 3/5 of a number is 23 more than 50% of the same number, then what will be the 80% of the number?

- A) 92
- B) 184
- C) 180
- D) 186

**Correct Answer: B) 184**

**Explanation: **

- Step 1: Let’s denote the number as ‘x’.
- Step 2: According to the given information, (3/5)x = (1/2)x + 23.
- Step 3: To solve for ‘x’, let’s isolate ‘x’: (3/5)x - (1/2)x = 23.
- Step 4: Simplify the equation: (6/10)x - (5/10)x = 23, which simplifies to (1/10)x = 23.
- Step 5: Now, multiply both sides by 10 to find ‘x’: x = 230.
- Step 6: Now that we know the value of ‘x’, we can find 80% of the number: 0.8 * 230 = 184.
- Step 7: Therefore, 80% of the number is 184, and the correct option is (a) 184.

Which of the words/phrases (1), (2), (3), and (4) given below should replace the phrase underlined in the given sentence to make the sentence grammatically correct? If the sentence is correct as it is and no correction is required, mark (5) as the answer

Q. Bad movies affect people living in today’s society more than they did in previous years.

- they had done
- they did those
- they had been done
- they would have done
- No correction required

**Correct Answer: No correction required**

**Explanation: **The sentence "Bad movies affect people living in today's society more than they did in previous years" is grammatically correct as it is. It uses the past tense "did" to compare the impact of bad movies in the past to their impact today.

Q. The reason he has been so fat is that he never takes exercises.

- that he has never taken
- that he would never take
- that he never takes
- because he didn’t ever take any
- No correction required

**Correct Answer: that he never takes**

**Explanation:** The sentence "The reason he has been so fat is that he never exercises" needs "never takes" to be grammatically correct. We're explaining a habitual action (not exercising) that has led to his current state (being fat).

- "That he has never taken" is grammatically incorrect because "taken" implies a single past action, not a continuous habit.
- "That he would never take" suggests a hypothetical future scenario, which doesn't fit the context of explaining his current weight.
- "Because he didn't ever take any" is awkward and less clear. "Never takes" is more concise and emphasises the ongoing lack of exercise.

- A. Only conclusion I follows
- B. Only conclusion II follows
- C. Only conclusion III follows
- D. Both conclusions I and III follow
- E. None of the conclusions follow

**Correct Answer: B. Only conclusion II follows**

**Explanation: **

- All those who like to watch football like to watch baseball. This is not necessarily true. The statement says that all those who like to watch basketball also like to watch football, but it doesn’t say anything about football fans also liking baseball.
- No one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch football. This could be true. The statement says that no one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch basketball, and all those who like to watch basketball also like to watch football. So, it can be inferred that no one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch football.
- Some of those who like to watch football like to watch baseball. This is not necessarily true. The statement doesn’t provide any information that suggests that some football fans also like baseball.

Q) **Direction: **Out of the five options given below, four are similar in a certain manner. However, one is not like the other four. Select the one which is different from the rest.

- A. Wheels A and D rotate in the same direction.
- B. Wheels A and C rotate in the same direction as wheels B and E.
- C. Wheels A and D rotate in the same direction as wheels B and C.
- D. Wheels B and C rotate in the same direction as wheels D and E.
- E. If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D and E rotate clockwise.

**Correct Answer: E. If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D and E rotate clockwise.**

**Explanation: **

- If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheel B will rotate counter-clockwise (because they are connected directly).
- Wheel B’s counter-clockwise rotation will cause wheel C to rotate counter-clockwise as well (because they are connected by a crossed belt).
- Wheel C’s counter-clockwise rotation will cause wheel D to rotate clockwise (because they are connected directly).
- Finally, wheel D’s clockwise rotation will cause wheel E to rotate clockwise as well (because they are connected by a crossed belt).

So, if wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D, and E will also rotate clockwise. Therefore, the correct answer is E. If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D, and E rotate clockwise.

Q) The average age of 13 girls and their teachers is 15 years. If the teacher's age is excluded, then the average age is reduced by 2 years. What is the teacher's age?

- A) 39 years
- B) 41 years
- C) 36 years
- D) 43 years

**Answer: C) 41 years**

**Explanation:**

- Total number of people = 13 girls + 1 teacher = 14 people
- Sum of the age of 13 girls and a teacher = 14 × 15 = 210 years
- It is given that if the teacher's age is excluded, then the average age reduces by 2 years.
- The average in this case = 15 - 2 = 13 years
- Sum of age of 13 years = 13 × 13 = 169 years
- The age of the teacher = Sum of the age of 13 girls and a teacher - Sum of the age of 13 years
- The age of the teacher = 210 - 169 = 41 year

Q) A train 220m long running at a speed of 60km/hr. At what time will it pass a man who is running at 6km/hr in the direction opposite to that in which the train is going?

- A) 12 seconds
- B) 17 seconds
- C) 13 seconds
- D) 14 seconds

**Correct Answer: A) 12 seconds**

**Explanation: **

Step 1: Determine the speeds of the train and the man.

- Speed of the Train = 60 Kmph
- Speed of the Man = 6 Kmph

Step 2: Calculate the relative speed. Since they are moving in opposite directions, we add the two speeds.

- Relative Speed = Speed of the Train + Speed of the Man = 60 Kmph + 6 Kmph = 66 Kmph

Step 3: Convert the relative speed from Kmph to m/s by multiplying by 5/18.

- Speed per Second = Relative Speed * (5/18) = 66 Kmph * (5/18) = 55/3 m/s

Step 4: Calculate the time taken to cross each other. This is done by dividing the length of the train by the speed per second.

- Time taken to cross each other = Length of the Train / Speed per Second = 220 m / (55/3) m/s = (220*3)/55 s = 12 s

Step 5: Hence, the right choice is 5. This means it takes 12 seconds for the train and the man to cross each other.

Q) How many following numbers are divisible by 132?

264, 396, 468, 762, 968, 2178, 5184, 6336

- A) 4
- B) 5
- C) 6
- D) 7

**Correct Answer: A) 4**

**Explanation: **

Step 1: Identify the co-prime numbers.

- Here, 3, 4, and 11 are pairwise co-prime numbers.

Step 2: Calculate the product of the co-prime numbers.

- The product is 132, which is equal to 3 × 4 × 11. Also, 3, 4, and 11 are factors of 132.

Step 3: Understand the divisibility rule.

- If a number is divisible by 3, 4, and 11, the number will also be divisible by their product, 132. Conversely, if a number is not divisible by 3, 4, or 11, it is not divisible by 132.

Step 4: Check the divisibility of each number.

Number |
Divisible by 3 |
Divisible by 4 |
Divisible by 11 |
Divisible by 132 |

264 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

396 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

462 | Yes | No | Yes | No |

792 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

968 | No | Yes | Yes | No |

2178 | Yes | No | Yes | No |

5184 | Yes | Yes | No | No |

6336 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes |

Step 5: Conclude the answer.

- Hence, only 264, 396, 792, and 6336 are divisible by 132. So, the answer is 4. This means there are 4 numbers that are divisible by 132.

Q) A money lender lends out Rs. 25000 in two parts, one at 8% and the other is at 8.5%. If the total annual income on the amount is Rs.2031.25, the money lent at 8% is?

- A) Rs.12500
- B) Rs.6250
- C) Rs.10000
- D) Rs.18,750

**Correct Answer: B) Rs.6250**

**Explanation: **

Step 1: Define the unknown.

- Let the sum lent at 8% be Rs. x. Then, the sum lent at 9% = Rs. (25,000 – x).

Step 2: Calculate the total income.

- Total income = (income from 8% + income from 9%). Given, total income = Rs. 2,187.50.

Step 3: Calculate the income from each part.

- Income from 8% = (8/100) x.
- Income from 9% = (9/100)(25,000 – x).

Step 4: Set up the equation for total income.

- Total income = (8/100) x + (9/100)(25,000 – x) = (8/100) x + (9/100) x – (9/100) x + 2,250 = (1/100) x + 2,250.

Step 5: Solve the equation.

- Given, total income = Rs. 2,187.50. Therefore, (1/100) x + 2,250 = 2,187.50.
- (1/100) x = 2,187.50 – 2,250.
- (1/100) x = – 62.50.
- x = – 62.50 x 100.
- x = Rs. 6,250.

Step 6: Hence, the sum lent at 8% is Rs. 6,250. This means that out of the total Rs. 25,000, Rs. 6,250 was lent at an interest rate of 8%.

Q) If 3/5 of a number is 23 more than 50% of the same number, then what will be the 80% of the number?

- A) 92
- B) 184
- C) 180
- D) 186

**Correct Answer: B) 184**

**Explanation: **

- Step 1: Let’s denote the number as ‘x’.
- Step 2: According to the given information, (3/5)x = (1/2)x + 23.
- Step 3: To solve for ‘x’, let’s isolate ‘x’: (3/5)x - (1/2)x = 23.
- Step 4: Simplify the equation: (6/10)x - (5/10)x = 23, which simplifies to (1/10)x = 23.
- Step 5: Now, multiply both sides by 10 to find ‘x’: x = 230.
- Step 6: Now that we know the value of ‘x’, we can find 80% of the number: 0.8 * 230 = 184.
- Step 7: Therefore, 80% of the number is 184, and the correct option is (a) 184.

Which of the words/phrases (1), (2), (3), and (4) given below should replace the phrase underlined in the given sentence to make the sentence grammatically correct? If the sentence is correct as it is and no correction is required, mark (5) as the answer

Q. Bad movies affect people living in today’s society more than they did in previous years.

- they had done
- they did those
- they had been done
- they would have done
- No correction required

**Correct Answer: No correction required**

**Explanation: **The sentence "Bad movies affect people living in today's society more than they did in previous years" is grammatically correct as it is. It uses the past tense "did" to compare the impact of bad movies in the past to their impact today.

Q. The reason he has been so fat is that he never takes exercises.

- that he has never taken
- that he would never take
- that he never takes
- because he didn’t ever take any
- No correction required

**Correct Answer: that he never takes**

**Explanation:** The sentence "The reason he has been so fat is that he never exercises" needs "never takes" to be grammatically correct. We're explaining a habitual action (not exercising) that has led to his current state (being fat).

- "That he has never taken" is grammatically incorrect because "taken" implies a single past action, not a continuous habit.
- "That he would never take" suggests a hypothetical future scenario, which doesn't fit the context of explaining his current weight.
- "Because he didn't ever take any" is awkward and less clear. "Never takes" is more concise and emphasises the ongoing lack of exercise.

**Direction: **Rearrange the given sentences in a proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph.

**Explanation: **

- It all began during high school when Aisha moved to a hostel. (This introduces the setting and a significant event in Aisha's life)
- Neither Aisha nor her parents expected that her life would take such an unfortunate turn. (This builds on the previous sentence by highlighting the unexpected nature of the following event)
- Not long after this, Aisha was diagnosed with blood cancer so she had to leave school and focus on her treatment. (This reveals the unfortunate turn and its consequences, directly following the foreshadowing)
- She was grateful that she had the support of her family to help her through this difficult time. (This provides closure by showing a positive aspect despite the challenges, and connects back to the initial mention of family support)

**Options: **

- DBAC
- CDBA
- CBAD
- CADB
- ABCD

**Correct Answer: ABCD**

**Explanation: Here's why this order works best:**

- Machu Picchu is a citadel situated on a 7,970 ft mountain ridge in southern Peru. (This sentence introduces Machu Picchu and its location, providing context.)
- According to archaeologists, Machu Picchu was an estate built for Pachacuti, the emperor of the Inca kingdom. (This sentence delves into the history of Machu Picchu, explaining its purpose and origin.)
- It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. (This sentence highlights the cultural significance of Machu Picchu and its recognition by UNESCO.)

Q) **Direction: **Select the conclusion that best follows from the statement given below.

Statement: No one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch basketball, and all those who like to watch basketball also like to watch football.

Conclusions:

- I. All those who like to watch football like to watch baseball.
- II. No one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch football.
- III. Some of those who like to watch football like to watch baseball.

Options:

- A. Only conclusion I follows
- B. Only conclusion II follows
- C. Only conclusion III follows
- D. Both conclusions I and III follow
- E. None of the conclusions follow

**Correct Answer: B. Only conclusion II follows**

**Explanation: **

- All those who like to watch football like to watch baseball. This is not necessarily true. The statement says that all those who like to watch basketball also like to watch football, but it doesn’t say anything about football fans also liking baseball.
- No one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch football. This could be true. The statement says that no one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch basketball, and all those who like to watch basketball also like to watch football. So, it can be inferred that no one who likes to watch baseball likes to watch football.
- Some of those who like to watch football like to watch baseball. This is not necessarily true. The statement doesn’t provide any information that suggests that some football fans also like baseball.

Q) **Direction: **Out of the five options given below, four are similar in a certain manner. However, one is not like the other four. Select the one which is different from the rest.

- A. Cold
- B. Chilly
- C. Frosty
- D. Freezing
- E. Sensitive

**Correct Answer: **

**Explanation: **

A. Cold, B. Chilly, C. Frosty, D. Freezing all refer to different degrees of coldness.

- A. Cold - Mildly cold
- B. Chilly - More noticeably cold
- C. Frosty - Very cold, often with frost present
- D. Freezing - Extremely cold, at or near the freezing point of water
- E. Sensitive describes a characteristic of a person or thing, not a temperature.

Therefore, "Sensitive" doesn't fit the category of describing temperature and is the different option.

Q)** Direction:** Based on the given image, which of the following options must be true?

- A. Wheels A and D rotate in the same direction.
- B. Wheels A and C rotate in the same direction as wheels B and E.
- C. Wheels A and D rotate in the same direction as wheels B and C.
- D. Wheels B and C rotate in the same direction as wheels D and E.
- E. If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D and E rotate clockwise.

**Correct Answer: E. If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D and E rotate clockwise.**

**Explanation: **

- If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheel B will rotate counter-clockwise (because they are connected directly).
- Wheel B’s counter-clockwise rotation will cause wheel C to rotate counter-clockwise as well (because they are connected by a crossed belt).
- Wheel C’s counter-clockwise rotation will cause wheel D to rotate clockwise (because they are connected directly).
- Finally, wheel D’s clockwise rotation will cause wheel E to rotate clockwise as well (because they are connected by a crossed belt).

So, if wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D, and E will also rotate clockwise. Therefore, the correct answer is E. If wheel A rotates clockwise, wheels B, D, and E rotate clockwise.
