### SAT Practice Questions on Quantitative Comparisons Part 2

SAT practice questions on quantitative comparisons are given below.
(Consider 1=a, 2=b, 3=c, 4=d for answers)
1. D + 5C >10
Quantity 1: 10D + 2C Quantity 2: 34
1. Quantity 2 is greater than Quantity 1
2. Both the quantities are equal
3. Quantity 1 is greater than Quantity 2 SAT Practice Questions
4. The relationship between the two quantities cannot be determined
Answer: (d)
Explanation:  D + 5C > 10
Hence, D > 10 - 2C
Multiplying by 5 to both sides of inequality,
5D > 50-10C
Hence, 5D + 10C > 5
Now Q1: 10D + 2C

2. 40 > v < 70, while 26 > a < 86
Quantity 1: v
Quantity 2: a
1. Value of quantity 2 is more than value of quantity 1
2. Value of quantity 1 is more than value of quantity 2
3. Values of both quantity 1 and 2 are equal
4. There is no relation between the 2 quantities
Answer: (d)
Explanation: As quantity 1 can be any number between 40 and 70, and quantity 2 can be any number between 26 and 86, option (d) is the right answer

3. E = the number of hours in 3 days
Z = the number of seconds in 10 minutes
1. Z is greater than E
2. E is greater than Z
3. There is no relation between E and Z
4. E = Z
Answer: (c)
Explanation: E = 3 x 24 =72
Z = 10 x 60 = 600
Therefore P is not equal to Z.

4. s is a negative integer
2/50 = s/g
Quantity 1: s/g
Quantity 2: 2
1. Quantity 2 is less than quantity 1
2. Quantity 1 is less than quantity 2
3. Quantity 1 is equal to quantity 2
4. No relation
Answer: (d)
Explanation: 2/50 = s/g
½ = u/p
Therefore there is no relation between 1 and 2

5. C + 3Z >10
Quantity 1: 3C + 6Z Quantity 2: 24
1. Quantity 2 is greater than quantity 1
2. Both the quantities are equal
3. Quantity 1 is greater than quantity 2
4. The relationship between the two quantities cannot be determined
Answer: (d)
Explanation:  C + 3Z > 10
hence, C > 10 - 3Z
Multiplying by 2 to both sides of inequality,
2C > 20-6Z
hence, 2C + 6Z > 20
Now Q1: 3C + 6Z
Q2: 24
Hence, there is no relation between these two.
Option (d) is the answer

6. F = 2/w + 2/c = 2/6
A = 2/w2 + 2/c2 = 7/9
1. F and A are equal
2. F> A
3. F< A
4. Relation not defined
Answer: (d)
Explanation: N = 2/w2 + 2/c2 = 7/9 = 1/w2 + 1/c2 = 7/18
M = 2/w + 2/c = 2/6 = 1/w + 1/c = 1/6
M2 = 1/w2 + 2/wc + 1/c2 = 1/36
M2 = 1/w2 + 1/c2 =1/36 - 2/wc
Therefore the relation between F and A is not defined.

Explanation: As quantity 1 is 70 = h + e and quantity 2 is h - e, option (c) is the right answer

13. Q = 2/f + 2/p = 2/6
C = 2/f2 + 2/p2 = 7/9
1. Q and C are equal
2. Q> C
3. Q< C
4. Relation not defined
Answer: (d)
Explanation: N = 2/f2 + 2/p2 = 7/9 = 1/f2 + 1/p2 = 7/18
M = 2/f + 2/p = 2/6 = 1/f + 1/p = 1/6
M2 = 1/f2 + 2/fp + 1/p2 = 1/36
M2 = 1/f2 + 1/p2 =1/36 - 2/fp
Therefore the relation between Q and C is not defined.

Hence, R > 10 - 2A
Multiplying by 5 to both sides of inequality,
5R > 50-10A
Hence, 5R + 10A > 5
Now Q1: 10R + 2A
Therefore there is no relation between both the quantities, the correct option is (d)

D= (c + 2)/4
1. D is greater than M
2. M is greater than D
3. Both M and D are equal
4. There is no relationship between M and D
Answer:  (d)
Explanation: Let x = 1
M = {(1 + 5)/6} - {(1 + 1)/8} = 1-(2/8) = (8 - 2)/8 = 7/8
D = (1 + 2)/4 = 3/4

2. 2 is greater than 1
3. 1 is greater than 2
4. There is no relation between 1 and 2
Answer: (b)
Explanation: As this is a right angled equilateral triangle, we apply the Pythagoras theorem.
Let GH = a, HI = b and GI = c
According to the Pythagoras theorem, a2 + b2 = c2
As the square of the third side is the sum of the squares of the other two sides, option (b) is the right answer.

W = (4 x 5 x 16)/(32 x 50)1/2
1. Z is greater than W
2. Z is equal to W
3. W is greater than Z
4. No relationship between W and Z
Answer: (d)
Explanation:  Z = (2 x 5 x 10)/(1500)1/2 = 100/32 = 2.5
W = (4 x 5 x 16)/(32 x 50)1/2 = 320/32 = 10
Therefore the answer is (d)
