(a) AKNUARRANKA
(b)KAANRAURNAAK
(c) NKKRANKRAUK
(d) RURNKAAUNAK
Ans.(b)
Sol. Divide the word into six sets of two letters each and label these sets from 1 to 6. Then, code contains these sets in the order 4, 3, 5, 2, 6, 1 with the letters of sets 3, 2, 1 written in a reverse order. Thus, we have :

Q2. In a certain code, MONKEY is written as XDJMNL. How is TIGER written in that code?
(a) QDFHS
(b) SDFHS
(c) SHFDQ
(d) UJHFS
Ans.(a)
Sol.  The letters of the word are written in a reverse order and then each letter is moved one step backward to obtain in code.

Q3. The number of boys in a class is three times the number of girls. Which one of the following numbers cannot represent the total number of children in the class?
(a)48
(b)44
(c)42
(d)40
Ans.(c)
Sol. Let number of girls = x and number of boys = 3x.
Then 3x + x = 4x = total number of students.
Thus, to find exact value of x, the total number of students must be divisible by 4.

Q4. If you write down all the numbers from 1 to 100, then how many times do you write 3?
(a)11
(b)18
(c)20
(d)21
Ans.(c)
Sol.  Clearly, from 1 to 100, there are ten numbers with 3 as the unit’s digit – 3, 13, 23, 33, 43, 53, 63, 73, 83, 93; and ten numbers with 3 as the ten’s digit – 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39.
So, required number = 10 + 10 = 20.

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 given in each question.

Q10. Maya starts at point T, walks straight to point U which is 4 ft away. She turns left at 90° and walks to W. which is 4 ft away, turns 90° right and goes 3 ft to P, turns 90° right and walks 1 ft to Q, turns left at 90° and goes to V, which is 1 ft away and once again turns 90° right and goes to R, 3 ft away. What is the distance between T and R?
(a) 4 ft
(b) 5 ft
(c) 7 ft
(d) 8 ft
Ans.(d)
Sol. The movements of Maya from T to R are as shown in figure.
∴ Distance between T and R
= TR = TU + UR
= TU + PW + QV
= (4 + 3 + 1) ft
= 8 ft.
