Today one of our reader Alex Christo has shared some questions from last week SBI PO Prelims exam. It might be possible that some facts and figures might be different from the real exam.

REASONING
Linear Arrangement :

1. E F G H P Q R and S are eight persons sittiing in a straight line facing north but not necessarily in the same order. H sits fourth to the left of Q and either H or Q sits at the extreme ends of the line.. G sits third to the left of Q. E is second to the right of S and S is not a neighbor of Q.  F & P are immediate neighbors to each other and F doesn’t sit near G.

2. There are Eight persons ABCDSTUV sitting in a row facing north.. T is on the extreme left end and there are three person between T and S. only one person sit between S and A. B is second to the left of S. C is not on immediate neighbour of S and A. D is Second to the right of C. U is not at the extreme end.

Directions :  Point C is 35 kms to the west of point D. Point C lies 25 kms north of point A. Point B lies 60 kms east of point A. Point E and F lie on either side of B at a distance of 50 kms from each other with B in centre. Point E is to the north of B.  Point E is how many kms far and in which direction from point D??

Quantitative Aptitude Section:

1.  x^2 = 81 ; y^2 +18y+81=0
2. x^2 +15x+36=0 ; 5y^2+29y+36=0
3.  x^2-22x+117=0
4. 3x^2+14x+15=0

Number series :

Then wat will be the SI for certain years at certain rate of interest (My frnd couldn’t recollect the exact figures of the final question)
