**Solutions**

**S1. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. **

**We infer from the venn diagram, Only either I or III follows.**

**S2. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. **

**We infer from the venn diagram, Only I and III follow.**

**S3. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. In 1**

column, 1

^{st}column, 1

^{2}+ 3^{3}+ 2^{1}=30.**In 2**

column, 5

^{nd}column, 5

^{2}+ 2^{3 }+ 4^{1}= 37.**Let the**

missing number be x. Then, in 3

missing number be x. Then, in 3

^{rd}column, we have:**1**

40

^{3}+ 6^{2}+ x^{1}=40

**x = 40 – 37**

= 3

= 3

**S4. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. We have: √36+√64+√25+√49=26; **

** √9+√25+√16+√81=21.**

**So, missing number = √25+√144+√36+√64 = (5 + 12 + 6 + 8) = 31.**

**S5. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. 1. Study -> 3. Examination -> 5. Apply -> 2. Job -> 4. Earn**

**S6. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. Using the correct symbols, we have:**

**Given expression = 19 + 148 ÷ 4 – 5 **

**= 19 + 37 – 5 **

**= 51.**

**S7. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. Number of girls in the row = (15 + 4 + 3) = 22.**

**C is just left of A. So, C is 14th from the left end.**

**Number of girls to the right of C = (22 – 14) = 8.**

**So, C is 9th from the right end of the row.**

**S11. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. Clearly, PQ = √(OP^2+OQ^2 )=√((300)^2+(400)^2 ) **

**=√(90000+160000) = 500 km.**

**Since R is the midpoint of PQ, so QR = 1/2 × PQ = 250 km.**

**S12. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. **

**Kashish is mother of Jai**

**S13. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. In the first and second statements, the common code-word is ‘nac’ and the common word is ‘green’. So, ‘nac’ means ‘green’.**

**In the second and third statements, the common code-word is ‘hor’ and the common word is ‘is’. So, ‘hor’ stands for ‘is’. So, in the second statement, ‘pic’ means ‘tomato’. **

**In the first and third statements, the common code-word is ‘bir’ and the common word is ‘tasty’. So, ‘bir’ stands for ‘tasty’.**

**S14. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. The groups of second and third letters and fourth and fifth letters in the word interchange places in the code.**

**S15. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. 31 is the only prime number in the group.**
