Directions (1-5): Find the missing character from among the given alternatives.
1.
(a) 7
(b) 25
(c) 49
(d) 129

2.
(a) P
(b) R
(c) S
(d) V
Ans.(b)
Sol. Putting A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, …..,
M = 13 ……, X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26,
we have:
In the first row, F + I = 6 + 9 = 15 = O.
In the second row, A + J = 1 + 10 = 11 = K.
So, in the third row,
missing letter = E + M = 5 + 13 = 18 = R.
3.
(a) 0
(b) 8
(c) 125
(d) 216

4.
(a) 6
(b) 9
(c) 12
(d) 18

5.
(a) 2
(b) 3
(c) 4
(d) 5
Ans.(c)
Sol. The
number inside the circle is obtained by multiplying the sum of the upper
number, the lower number and the number corresponding to the position of the
letter in the English alphabet, by the number on the right and then subtracting
the number on the left from the product.
Thus, we
have (2 + C + 5) × 3 – 4 = (2 + 3 +5) × 3 – 4 = 26;
(4 + H + 4)
× 5 – 10 = (4 + 8 + 4) × 5 – 10 = 70.
Let the
missing number be X.
Then, (8 + J
+ 6) × X-6  ⇔90
(8 + 10 + 6) ×

x = 96

X= 4
