Arithmetic is a branch of mathematics that consists of the study of numbers, especially the properties of the traditional operations on them—addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Arithmetic is an elementary part of number theory, and number theory is considered to be one of the top-level divisions of modern mathematics, along with algebra, geometry, and analysis.

Test is not original. Questions, answer options and explanation were taken from existing sources.
E.g.: "In a division sum, the divisor is ten times the quotient and five times the remainder. If the remainder is 46, then find the dividend.

OR "If it is Saturday on January 1, 2000, then January 1, 2001 would have been" <= https://books.google.de/books?id=Wy7oDwAAQBAJ&lpg=PA132&ots=Oo-i5Uk0uo&dq=%22If%20it%20is%20Saturday%20on%20January%201%2C%202000%2C%20then%20January%201%2C%202001%20would%20have%20been%22&pg=PA132#v=onepage&q=%22If%20it%20is%20Saturday%20on%20January%201,%202000,%20then%20January%201,%202001%20would%20have%20been%22&f=false

The quiz has a lot of questions with a too short time to solve it without the use of a calculator.

Also:
Question "In a divison sum, the divisor is ten times the quotient and five times the remainder. If the remainder is 46, then find the dividend." is a typo, it should be "In a division sum..."

Question "12.49% of 839.859=?" is totally insane to do without a calculator. Also it states that:
12.49% of 839.859 = 12% of 840 = 100
And that's not true.
I did the math with a calculator and 12.49% of 839.859 is approximately 104.9 so technically the answer is nearest to 105 than to 100.

Question "What will be the compound interest on a sum of 50000 after 3 years at the rate of 12% per annum?" there are two equals answers "70246.40" one of them is correct and the other one is wrong. This shouldn't happen.

Question "In how many different ways, can the letters of the word 'INHALE' be arranged?" has an error in the explanation; it says:
6!=8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1
and it should be:
6!=6x5x4x3x2x1
