**Solutions**

**S1. Ans.(a) **

**Sol. Order of sitting:**

**DECAB**

**S2. Ans.(d) **

**Sol. **

**The movements of Sanjeev from A to F are as shown in figure.**

**Since CD = AB + EF, so F lies in line with A.**

**∴ Sanjeev’s distance from original position A **

**= AF = (AG + GF)**

**= (BC + DE) = (30 + 15) m = 45 m. **

**Also, F lies to the east of A. **

**S3. Ans.(b) **

**Sol. **

** **

**Pair ⇒ (A – E), (N – R) **

**S4. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. **

**xxyz/xyyz/xyzz**

**S5. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. In the first column, 23 + 13 + 33 = 36.**

**In the third column, 03 + 43 + 33 = 91. **

**∴ In the second column, missing number = 43 + 23 + 13 = (64 + 8 + 1) = 73. **

**S6. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. **

** **

**S7. Ans.(c) **

**Sol. **

**S8. Ans.(a) **

**Sol. C and D are children of A and B. B is mother of C and D. Therefore, B is sisters-in-law of E. **

**S11. Ans.(b) **

**Sol. **

**The actual positions of the directions are as shown in I while the changes positions of the pointer can be described by II.**

**Clearly, the direction of West shown by the pointer in wrong position (Fig. II) is actually south. **

**S12. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.The age of two daughters **

**= 22 × 2 = 44 years **

**∴ The age of their mother **

**= 44 + 6 = 50 years **

**S13. Ans.(d) **

**Sol. In a = 14(290) 15, 14 + 15 = 29 × 10 ⇒ 290 **

**In b = 16 (330) 17, 16 + 17 = 33 × 10 ⇒ 330 **

**∴ In c = 18 (?) 19, 18 + 19 = 37 × 10 ⇒ 370 **

**S14. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. **

**The movements of Rajeev are as shown in figure. (X to Y, Y to A, A to B, B to C.)**

**∴ Jai’sdistance from the starting point **

**= XC = (XY – YC) = (XY – BA)**

**= (80 – 70) m = 10 m. **

**S15. Ans.(c) **

**Sol.In the first column, 29 – 8 = 7 × 3 = 21; **

**in the second column, 19 – 7 = 4 × 3 = 12. **

**Let the missing number in the third column be x**

**Then, 31 – 6 = 5 × x or 5x = 25 or x = 5. **
