GATE 2022 Aptitude Highlight Questions

From 5th February Session

The ratio of the speeds of P:Q in a 500m race is 3:4. When the race starts P is 140m ahead of Q. Find the distance between P and Q when P wins the race.

a) 40m b) 20m

c) 60m d) 80m


This question could be easily solved by knowing the concept of the speed-time-distance relationship.

Let the speed of P and Q be 3x and 4x respectively. P covers the remaining distance in time 't'. The distance which P has to cover to win the race is given by,

500 - 140 = 360m

By speed-time relation, time (t) = distance/speed. Therefore, t = 360/3x, which is equal to 120/x or,

x*t = 120

Distance covered by Q will be 4*x*t. As we know, x*t = 120. Therefore, the distance covered by Q is,

4*120 = 480m

The question doesn't end here, we must find the distance between P and Q, which is given by,

500 - 480 = 20m

From 6th February Session

The seating arrangement for six persons is based on the following conditions.

  1. P sits next to S and T

  2. Q sits diametrically opposite to P

  3. Shortest between S and R equal to the shortest distance between T and U

Then Q is the neighbour of _____

a) S and T b) S and P

c) U ant T d) R and U


This question requires knowledge of seating arrangements. In this particular question, the conditions for arrangement is fairly easy. The only tricky word to understand is "diametrically opposite" which simply means sitting opposite to each other in a circular seating arrangement. Therefore, getting the right seating arrangement will help in finding the answer.

The answer to this question for your reference is R and U.
