Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Except 72, All are cubes.
6= 216
7= 343
(10)= 1000

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. 463 – 11 = 452
452 – 13 = 439
439 – 15 = 424
Similarly
424 – 17 =  407

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol.

Shailesh’s starting point is A and its direction with respect to D is “west”.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Except in MST, difference in letters are 2.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. 12 × 3 = 36 + 4 = 40
Similarly, 15 × 3 = 45 + 4 = 49

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Order according to dictionary:
1. Scarf  , 2. Scene , 3. Shell , 5. Stream , 4. Survey

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. After changing sign:
= 36 × 56 ÷ 7 – 60 + 8
= 36 × 8 – 60 + 8
= 236

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. Number of triangle = 12

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol.
7 × 2 = 14
4 × 32= 12
6 × 42 = 24
Ignore powers.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. The last four letters of the word are written in the reverse order, followed by the first four
letters in the same order. In the group of letters so obtained, each of the first four letters is
moved one step backward while each of the last four letters is moved one step forward to get
the code. Thus, we have:
SHOULDER → SHOU/LDER → REDL/SHOU → QDCK/TIPV

S11. Ans.(d)
Sol. Using the proper notations in (d), we get the statement as:
24 ÷ 3 × 2 = 2 × 8 or 16 = 16, which is true.

S12. Ans.(c)
Sol.
 Original number                                               5  2  9  4  6  8  1  7  3 Number formed by arranging                      1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 digits in ascending order
digits in ascending order
Clearly, the positions of 2 and 4 remain unaltered.

S13. Ans.(b)
Sol.
“B” = 02, 11, 20, 34, 43
“O” = 01, 10, 24, 33, 42
“L” = 59, 68, 77, 86, 95
“D” = 00, 14, 23, 32, 41

S14. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Woman’s mother-in-law’s only son implies woman’s husband.
Now, the brother of the daughter of woman’s husband implies woman’s son.

S15. Ans.(d)
Sol.
‘Tree is very beautiful’ -> ka    na    da    ta  ….(i)
‘This is strong tree’ -> na    pa    sa    ka      …(ii)
∴ is  ⇒ na/ka
tree ⇒ na/ka
Clearly,
