Number System SSC CGL Math Project 400 Questions

I will post 400 MCQ on Maths for SSC-CGL. These 400 questions are unique. There are variety questions. I will call these questions as “Project 400 Questions”. These questions are developed on the basis of research. If any SSC CGL aspirant become proficient in these 400 questions I am sure he will score always 40+ score in maths in tier 1 and 180+ in tier 2. Keep in mind along with these representative questions a lot of practice is required.

I am posting 20 varieties questions on ‘Number System’. This is considered as important chapter. Generally 4-5 questions can be asked in Tier 1 and 8-10 in Tier 2. This chapter will have direct link with other chapters also.

32. answer of q 19 is wrong

33. answer of q 19&4 is wrong

34. plz explain q no 15

35. any short trick for q. 4

36. Answer to Q19 should be (b), that is, the remainder is 3.

37. 9/13, 17/26, 33/52 can be written as 36/52, 34/52, 33/52. Obviously,33/52 is smallest among the three.Comparing 33/52 with 28/29. Now smaller the difference between numerator and denominator, higher will be the fraction. Hence 28/29 > 33/52.
Therefore, lowest fraction is 33/52.

Let the number be N
Dividing this first by 4, we have :
N = 4Q + 1 — (i)
Bcoz the quotient from first division is divided by second number 5,
Q = 5X + 4 — (ii)
Substituting value of Q in (i),
=> N = 4(5X + 4) + 1
=> N = 20X + 17
=> N = (20X + 15) + 2
=> N = 5(4X + 3) + 2

If this number is divided by 5 first, the remainder is 2. Looking at the options, (c) is the only option where first remainder is 2.

39. Q5 : Let the number be ‘N’

Number = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder
N = 899Q + 63
N = (31 x 29)Q + (2 x 29) + 5

If this is now divided by 29, the remainder would be 5.

40. Q7 : Divisibility rule for 1001, 7, 11 & 13

1001 = 7 x 11 x 13

Take the number and group them into three digits starting from units place.
Take alternate groups and sum them.
Take the two sums and find their difference.
If the difference is divisible by 7, 11 or 13, the number is divisible by 7, 11 or 13.

Taking the number 256256, we group them as 256|256
Difference of the sum of the two alternate groups is 0 which is divisible by 1001, 7, 11 & 13.
Hence the number is always divisible by 7, 11, 13 & 1001.

Anser : Option (d)

41. Q14 : Let the second number = LCM(1,2,3) = 6
Then first number = 3 and third number is 2
Difference between first and third number = 3 – 2 = 1
Average of three numbers is (3+6+2)/3 = 11/3
If average = 11/3 ====> Difference = 1
If average = 1 ====> Difference = 1/(11/3) = 3/11
If average = 44 ====> Difference = 3/11 * 44 = 12

42. Q16 : 81 x 82 x 83 x 84 x 85 x ……….. x 89
In this series, we have 82 & 85 as two elements, the product of which is a multiple of 10 and will always end in 0. Therefore, the product of all 9 elements in the series will be a multiple of 10 and will always have units digits as 0.

43. Q20 : x = 0.39393939… (i)
100x = 39.39393939… (ii)
Subtracting (1) from (ii), we have :
99x = 39
x = 39/99 = 13×3/33×3 = 13/33

Short Cut :
-> See what number is repeating. It is 39.
-> See how many digits are repeating. It is 3 & 9 => 2 digits
-> Write repeating number in numerator and put as many 9s in denominator as the number of repeating digits. => 39/99
🙂

44. Q2 :
Since the two numbers differ by 5, the possible combinations of unit digits of two numbers can be :(1,6), (2,7),(3,8) & (4,9)
Since unit digits of the product of the two numbers is given as 6 ( units digit of 336 ), the only combinations possible is (1,6) or (4,9).

Taking sum of both combinations, the units place is either 7 or 3.

Looking at the options, only 37 satisfies the condition. There is no option where units digit is 3 🙂

45. Q4 :

9/13, 17/26, 33/52 can be written as 36/52, 34/52, 33/52.
Obviously,33/52 is smallest among the three.
Now Compare 33/52 with 28/29.
=> Now smaller the difference between numerator and denominator, higher will be the fraction.
Hence 28/29 > 33/52.
Therefore, lowest fraction is 33/52.
