IBPS RRB Clerk Prev Year Question Paper (2020 – memory based)
5. Rs.3240 Correct Option: 3 Let total salary = 100x Amount spend in Food = 35% of 100x = 35x Amount invests = 30% of 100x = 30x Savings = 100x - 35x - 30x = 35x Now, 35x = 4340 x = 124 Invested amount = 30x = Rs.3720 =========================== Q39.

1. 42 years
2. 48 years 3. 50 years 4. 60 years 5. 45 years
Correct Option: 3 Let the present ages of father and son be 'f' years and 's' years respectively. Age of father when son was born = f - s Given, f - s = 30 Age of father when son was 5 years old = f - s + 5 So, s + 15 = f - s + 5 => s + 15 = 35 => s = 20 => f = 30 + 20 = 50 ===========================
