The part talks about things like figuring out what the numbers mean, simplifying them, getting close to them, quadratic equations, number series, profit and loss, time and work, time, speed, and distance, simple and compound interest, ratio and proportion, averages, mixtures and combinations, and probability.

Over the past few years, there have been some changes to the Quantitative Aptitude part of the IBPS RRB PO test. Here’s a quick look at the section’s main trends:

1. Level of Difficulty: The Quantitative Aptitude part has been moderate to tough in the past few years. The questions are meant to test the candidates’ ability to think critically and do maths. The difficulty level changes yearly, and applicants should be ready to handle any level.

2. Subjects: The Quantitative Aptitude part covers a lot of different subjects. Data Interpretation, Simplifying, and Approximating are the most common themes on the test, and they are worth more points. To do well on this part, candidates must know much about these things. Other important topics include quadratic equations, number series, profit and loss, time and work, speed and distance, simple and compound interest, ratio and proportion, averages, mixtures and alignments, and probability.

3. Managing Your Time: Managing your time is an important part of the IBPS RRB PO Quantitative Aptitude section. There are 40 questions in this part, and candidates only have 45 minutes to answer them. This means that candidates have less than a minute to answer each question.
