Using given statement, we can write (1/4)*(2/5)*(20/100)*X = 40

X = 40*(4/1)*(5/2)*(100/20)
= 40*10*5
X = 2000

40 percent of X = (40/100)*X = (40/100)*2000 = 800

Without calculating X we will get the answer in the following way.
(1/4) x (2/5) x (20% of X) = 40
(20% of X) = 40 x ( 4/1) ( 5/2) = 400
so 40% of X = 2 x 400 = 800

I am also solving ibps po previous year question papers from a long time, But I still don't have good speed.

I take too much time to solve quantitative aptitude section & English passages.

How can I improve my speed?

(1/4)*(2/5)*(1/5)*X=40

So 40% of a number is equal to 2/5

Now

(2/5)*(1/20)*X=40

(2/5)*X=40% of X= 40*20=800

Thus the simple way to find the number
