## CLAT Sample Questions for Quantitative Techniques

The CLAT Quantitative Techniques questions will be preceded by short sets of facts, propositions, graphs, or other textual/pictorial/diagrammatic representations of numerical information. Candidates will have to thoroughly go through the given passage/information, derive information from it, apply mathematical operations and then answer the subsequent questions. Check an example of the Quantitative Techniques questions as given in CLAT sample papers:

### How candidates should attempt CLAT Quantitative Technique questions:

Now, for the question given above, the following tricks should be applied:

Solving the question: Length of the bridge = 200 m
Let the length of the New Delhi Shatabdi Express be ‘L’ and its speed be ‘S’.
L 200 = 35 x S
S = (L 200) / 35
L = 25 x S
S = L / 25
L / 25 = (L 200) / 35
35L = 25L 5000
10L = 5000
L = 500 m
Therefore, speed S = 500 / 25 = 20 m/s
(20m/s x 18) / 5 = 72 km/h
Distance between the 2 cities = 200 km
Speed of New Delhi Shatabdi Express = 72 km/h
Speed of Hazrat Nizamuddin Singrauli SF Express = 58 km/h
Since, the trains are moving towards each other the speed of the trains will be added up to compute the time taken for the trains to cross each other.
Therefore, Total Speed = 72 58 = 130 km/h
Distance = Speed x time
200 = 130 x time
Time it will take for the two trains to meet = 200/130 = 1.54 hours. Therefore, the trains will meet 1.54 hours after starting from their respective locations.
Distance from Agra = 1.54 hours x speed of Hazrat Nizamuddin Singrauli SF Express (Starts from Agra) = 1.54 x 58 = 89.32 km
Distance from Delhi = 1.4 x New Delhi Shatabdi Express = 1.54 x 72 = 110.88 km
