Math Word Problem Sample Question

Ariel, Alex, and Dana form a business agreement in which Ariel receives 20% of profits, Alex receives 70% of profits, and Dana receives the remaining 10%. The total profits for the month of June were $6,600. How much more would Dana receive if the profits were divided equally?

A. $1,540
B. $1,820
C. $1,900
D. $2,180
E. $2,200
F. None of these

The correct answer is (A).

Per the current agreement, Dana receives 10% of $6,600, which is $6,600*0.10 = $660.

If the profits were divided equally among all three people, Dana would have received one third of the total profits, which is $6,600/3 = $2,200.
Therefore, she would have made $2,200 – $660 = $1,540 more if the profits were divided equally.

Basic Arithmetic – Working with US Money Sample Question

Count the money. How much money is there?

A. $3.90
B. $3.95
C. $4.05
D. $4.10

The correct answer is (C).

If you add up each bill or coin with that match in type, you will get:

Dollars: 1 + 1 + 1 = 3

Quarters: 0.25 + 0.25 = 0.50

Nickels: 0.05 + 0.05 + 0.05 = 0.15

Dimes: 0.10 + 0.10 + 0.10 + 0.10 = 0.40

Add the sums of each bill or coin to find the entire sum: $3.00 + $0.50 + $0.15 + $0.40 = $4.05.

Grammar – Written Materials Analysis Sample Question

Answer the question that follows the passage:

  1.   Education of man does not begin at school, but at birth. It ends, not when
  2.   he graduates from the university, but at his death. Hence, education is a life-long
  3.   process. The child learns through his experience; it went on forever without any
  4.   break or barrier. Thus, education becomes an active and dynamic process. It is
  5.   much more than schooling, memorizing or learning a prescribed syllabus. When
  6.   the learner comes in contact with a real situation, he utilizes all his past
  7.   experiences that are relevant to it and gains new experiences. Therefore,
  8.   education is considered by educationalists as an active and dynamic process.

What change, if any, is needed in line 3?

A. Change "process" to "processes"
B. Add a comma after "forever"
C. Change "went" to "goes"
D. No change is needed

The correct answer is (C).

The sentence should read, "it goes on forever without any break or barrier." Though the sentence is grammatically correct, "went" is past tense, which is not suitable as the paragraph is written in present tense.
