SOLUTIONS: NTS QUANTITATIVE PRACTICE
1. (C) 2. (D) 3. (C) Multiply the element with 4 and then subtract 5 to obtain the next term 4. (A) The base of the triangle (in shade) is 8 cm, and the height is 4 cm, hence  5. (B)
Here, total distance = 300+240=540 km, and total time = 3 hour 20 minutes + 2 hour 40 minutes = 6 hour. Hence,
