**Q1. In this question, choose that set of numbers from the four alternative sets, that is similar to the given set: (63, 49, 35)**

(a) (72, 40, 24)

(b) (72, 48, 24)

(c) (64, 40, 28)

(d) (81,63, 45)

**Ans.(d)**

**Sol. Each set consists of numbers which are obtained by multiplying a certain number by 9, 7 and 5 respectively. Thus, in the given set, 63 = 7 × 9. 49 = 7 × 7 , 35 = 7 × 5.**

**Similarly, 81 = 9 × 9, 63 = 9 x 7, 45 = 9 x 5.**

**Q2. Food is related to Hunger in the same way as Medicine is related to**

(a) Disease

(b) Miracle

(c) Growth

(d) Drought

**Ans.(a)**

**Sol. First is the remedy for second.**

**Q3. In this question, one term in the number series is wrong. Find out the wrong term.**

**2, 5, 10, 17, 26, 37, 50, 64**

(a) 17

(b) 26

(c) 37

(d) 64

**Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**

The numbers are l

and so on.

The numbers are l

^{2}+ 1,2^{2}+ 1, 3^{2}+ 1and so on.

**So. 64 is wrong. The correct term should be**

(8

(8

^{2}+ 1)**Q4. In this letter series some of the letters are missing which are given in that order as one of the alternatives below it. Choose the correct alternative.**

**a _ cd _ ab _ c _ dd _ aabb _ cccd _ d**

(a) bdbdaac

(b) bddcabd

(c) babcabd

(d) bbdacdc

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol. The series is abcd/aabbccdd/aaabbbcccddd.**

**Thus, each letter of first sequence is repeated two times in the second sequence and three times in the third sequence.**

**Q5. If JOSEPH is coded as FKOALD, then GEORGE will be coded as_____**

(a) CADMNO

(b) CAKNIT

(c) CAKNCA

(d) JAKINS

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol. Each letter of the word is moved four steps backward to obtain the code.**

**Q6. If ‘sti nro kti’ stands for ‘clouds pour down’, ‘nro bsi mit’ stands for ‘down he goes and ‘bsi nro zpi’ stands for ‘died down he’, which word would mean ‘goes’?**

(a) nro

(b) mit

(c) nro

(d) bsi

**Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**

**‘sti nro kti’ -> ‘clouds pour down’ ……(i)**

**‘nro bsi mit’ -> ‘down he goes ……..(ii)**

**‘bsi nro zpi’ -> ‘died down he’ …….(iii)**

**In (ii) and (iii), the common code word are ‘nro’ and ‘bsi’**

**So, ‘nro’/’bsi’ -> ‘down ‘/’he’**

**Thus, in (ii), ‘mit’ -> ‘goes’**

**Q7. These three figures are followed by four answer figures from which you have to choose a figure which would most closely resemble the unfolded form of figure.**

**Ans.(b)**

**Q8. Find the number of triangle in this figure?**

(a) 10

(b) 11

(c) 12

(d) 13

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol. The number of triangle = 12**

**Q9. Statements :**

**All bags are chalks.**

**All chalks are bottles.**

**Conclusions :**

**I. Some bottles are bags.**

**II. All bags are bottles.**

**III. All bottles are bags.**

**IV. Some chalks are not bags is a possibility.**

(a) Only I, II and IV follow

(b) Only I III and IV follow

(c) Only II, III and IV follow

(d) All follow

**Q10. Tina and Lina are ranked seventh and eleventh respectively from the top in a class of 31 students. What will be their respective ranks from the bottom in the class?**

(a) 20th and 24th

(b) 24th and 20th

(c) 25th and 21st

(d) 26th and 22nd

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol. Number of students behind Tina in rank = (31 – 7) = 24.**

**So, Tina is 25th from the bottom.**

**Similarly, number of students behind Lina in rank = (31 – 11) = 20.**

**So, Lina is 21st from the bottom.**

**Q11. In a group of six children, F is taller than E but not as tall as D. C is taller than B and A, but not as tall as E. Who is the shortest among them?**

(a) B

(b) A

(c) C

(d) Data inadequate

**Ans.(d)**

**Sol. On the basis of given clues, we get**

**D > F > E > C > B ≥ or ≤ A.**

**There is no information about B and A.**

**So, data are inadequate.**

**Again, since we do not get the exact answer therefore opt ‘Data inadequate’ is your answer.**

**Q12. Swati starts from a point walks 2 km towards North, turns towards her right and walks 2 km, turns right again and walks. In which direction is she going now?**

(a) North

(b) South-East

(c) South

(d) West

**Q13. In this question, a word is represented by only one set of numbers as given in any one of the alternatives. The sets of numbers given in the alternatives are represented by two classes of alphabets as in the two given matrices. The columns and rows of Matrix I are numbered from 0 to 4 and those of Matrix II from 5 to 9. A letter from these matrices can be represented first by its row and then the column number e.g. In the matrices for questions 11 to 15, M can be represented by 14, 21, etc; O can be represented by 20, 32 etc.**

**Similarly, you have to identify the correct set for the word “RADIO”**

(c) 89, 21, 32, 13, 01

(d) 89, 21, 32, 03, 01

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**

**‘R’ = 57, 66, 75, 89, 98**

**‘A’ = 03, 12, 21, 30, 44**

**‘D’ = 00, 14, 23, 32, 41**

**‘I’ = 04, 13, 22, 31, 40**

**‘O’ = 01, 10, 24, 33, 42**

**Q14. In this question, a number series is given with one term missing. Choose the correct alternative that will continue the same pattern.**

(a) 24

(b) 22

(c) 20

(d) 18

**Ans.(a)**

**Sol. The numbers are l**

4

^{2}-1, 2^{2}-2, 3^{2}-1,4

^{2}-2,…**Missing number = 5**

^{2}– 1 = 24.**Q15. In this question, various terms of a letter series are given with one term missing as shown by (?). Choose the missing term out of the given alternatives.**

(c) i n

(d) j m

**Ans.(b)**

**Sol. The series may be divided into groups as shown:**
