SBI PO and Clerk Exam 2019: Most Expected Questions

The first step has been obtained by multiplying the digits in input. The next steps are not obtained the same way. They are obtained by applying a certain logic. Numbers of step II have been obtained by using at least 1 digit of each number in step I. Each step is a resultant of previous step.

1-Find the multiplication of digits of all the numbers obtained in step
II ?

(A)22

(B)04

(C)24

(D)20

(E)14

Ans: (c)
Explanation:Multiplication of digits = 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 = 24.
1st step:
5 X 1 = 5
4 X 2 = 8, so 5 and 8
1 X 8 = 8, 4 X 2 = 8, so 8 and 8
3 X 3 = 9, 7 X 1 = 7 so 9 and 7 and so the next number.
Numbers of step II have been obtained by using at least 1 digit of each number in step I.
Step II: from step I, add the first digits = (5+8+9) = 22
Also from step I, add the first digits = (8+8+7) = 23
Now for step III:
2/2=1,3/2=1. 5
Step IV: 1.5 – 1 = 0.5

2-Each of numbers in step II are halved, then find the sum of
the numbers obtained.

(A)17.5

(B)18

(C)24.5

(D)22.5

(E)20

Ans: (d)
Explanation:Multiplication of digits = 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 = 24.
1st step:
5 X 1 = 5
4 X 2 = 8, so 5 and 8
1 X 8 = 8, 4 X 2 = 8, so 8 and 8
3 X 3 = 9, 7 X 1 = 7 so 9 and 7 and so the next number.
Numbers of step II have been obtained by using at least 1 digit of each number in step I.
Step II: from step I, add the first digits = (5+8+9) = 22
Also from step I, add the first digits = (8+8+7) = 23
Now for step III:
2/2=1,3/2=1. 5
Step IV: 1.5 – 1 = 0.5

Ans: (b)
Explanation:Multiplication of digits = 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 = 24.
1st step:
5 X 1 = 5
4 X 2 = 8, so 5 and 8
1 X 8 = 8, 4 X 2 = 8, so 8 and 8
3 X 3 = 9, 7 X 1 = 7 so 9 and 7 and so the next number.
Numbers of step II have been obtained by using at least 1 digit of each number in step I.
Step II: from step I, add the first digits = (5+8+9) = 22
Also from step I, add the first digits = (8+8+7) = 23
Now for step III:
2/2=1,3/2=1. 5
Step IV: 1.5 – 1 = 0.5

4-Find the difference of the two numbers obtained in step III ?

(A)2.5

(B)0.5

(C)1

(D)1.5

(E)2

Ans: (b)
Explanation:Multiplication of digits = 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 = 24.
1st step:
5 X 1 = 5

Now for step III:
2/2=1,3/2=1. 5
Step IV: 1.5 – 1 = 0.5

5-Find the difference between sum of numbers obtained in 1st step and
sum of numbers obtained in all other steps.

(A)183

(B)170
