nice to see someone's found the examples. but do each question in 60 seconds without a calculator. As thats what the aptitude tests do and you get marked down for the ones you don't answer.

I only gave myself thirty secs per question. Which explains why I only got half way through before the clock beat me

If I'm not beaten to it, I'll post an edit of QM's post with the correct answers later.

OK, thats QM's questions with added numbers to tie them in with my answers. Went through these with my brain, pen and paper, and it took one hour fifteen. Went through them with a calculator and checked everything, so these answers should be pretty accurate. If I've missed any, or messed them up let me know and I will edit the answer sheet. Enjoy!
