# TCS aptitude questions

The TCS NQT exam is intended to assess applicants' knowledge and skills in various areas comprising aptitude levels. The aptitude questions of TCS include numerical aptitude, verbal aptitude, logical reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, and situational judgment tests. The questions are usually multiple-choice, and the candidates must choose the correct answer from the given options. Here are a few examples of TCS aptitude questions and solutions to help you clear the test. So, let's get started!

1. A radio, when sold for Rs. 2360 , earned a profit of 18% . What is its cost price then ?

• Cost price = 100 %

• Selling price = Cost price + 18% profit

$\Rightarrow$2360 = Cost price + 18%

118 % of cost pice = 2360

• Cost price = $2360 \times\frac{100}{118}$ $= 20\times100 = 2000$.

1. What is the value of $x$ if $4, 8, x$ is in ratio?

$\frac{4}{8}$ =$\frac{8}{x}$

x =$\frac{8 × 8}{ 4}$

x = 16

1. The square root of the sum of two consecutive integers is 7. Find the two integers?

• Let first number be x

So second number = x + 1

So, as per question,

$\sqrt{x+x+1}$ = 7

$\sqrt{2x+1}$ = 7

• Now, on squaring both sides.

$2x+1 = 49$

$2x = 49-1$

x =$\frac{48}{2}$

$x =24$

• So the two integers are 24 and 25

1. Walking at $\frac{4}{5}$ of his usual speed, a man covers a distance 9 min late. Find his usual time to cover the journey ?

• $\frac{4}{5}$th of his usual speed leads 9 min late

• Speed is inversely proportional to time.

• Then time = $\frac{5}{4}$ of usual time

• Hence change in time= $\frac{5-4}{4} \times$ usual time = 9 min
Hence usual time= $4 \times 9 =36$

1. If the cost price of a product is 120 rupees and selling price is 138 rupees, what is profit percentage ?

$= 138 - 120= 18$
\therefore Profit Percentage = $\frac{profit}{cost price}\times100$
=$\frac{18}{120}\times100 = 15$%
