**Q15. Identify the diagram that best represents the relationship among classes given below:**

**ELEPHANTS, WOLVES, ANIMALS**

**SOLUTIONS**

**S1. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**

**S2. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**DISTANCEcannot be formed by using the letters of CIRCUMSTANCES.

**S3. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**In the first row, (263 – 188) × 4 = 300

∴ In the second row, missing number = (915 – 893) × 4 = 22 × 4 = 88.

**S4. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**

**S5. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**Pattern : 2nd , 3rd, 1st

**S6. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**

**S7. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**48 -5 × 8 +10 ÷ 2 = 13

**S8. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**In 1st column:

72 + 42+ 22 = 69

In 2nd column:

32 + 92+12 = 91

Similarly, in 3rd column:

22 + 62 + 52 = 65

**S9. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**

**S10. Ans.(a)**

**Sol**. Letters are in reverse order.

**S11. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**

S12. Ans.(d)

**Sol.**The movements of Pooja 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.

**S13. Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**There is no “E” in CONSULTATION, So SALUTE can’t be formed.

**S14. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**Let the age of Arun = 4x

And Deepak’s age = 3x

After 6 years Arun’s age

4x + 6 = 26

x = 5

So Deepak’s age = 3 × 5 = 15 years

**S15. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**
