**Solutions**

**S1. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. **

**From the above venn diagram we can infer that only conclusion II follows.**

**S2. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. The number of letters is the terms goes on leaving one letter after each set and the next set has one letter more than the previous one.**

**S3. Ans.(a) **

**Sol. The given numbers are sequence of prime numbers.**

**S4. Ans.(c) **

**Sol.1, 2, 5, 12, 27, 58, 121, ?**

**1 × 2 + 0 = 2 **

**2 × 2 + 1 = 5 **

**5 × 2 + 2 = 12 **

**12 × 2 + 3 = 27**

**27 × 2 + 4 = 58**

**58 × 2 + 5 = 121 **

**121 × 2 + 6 = 248 **

**∴ Missing number = 121 × 2 + 6 = 248 **

**S5. Ans.(d)**

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

**S6. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. Difference between letters is 2.**

**S7. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. **

**“S” = 03, 10, 22, 34, 41**

**“C” = 04, 11, 23, 30, 42**

**“E” = 01, 13, 20, 32, 44**

**“N” = 58, 65, 77, 89, 96**

**“T” = 59, 66, 78, 85, 97**

**S8. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. In Column 1**

**9 × 3 × 3 = 81**

**In column 2**

**11 × 4 × 4 = 176**

**Similarly**

**13 × 7 × 5 = 455**

**S9. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. The numbers are 1**

3

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

^{2}-1, 4^{2}-2,…**Missing number = 5**

^{2}– 1 = 24.

**S10. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. **

**S11. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. The numbers are 7 x 8, 8 x 9, 9 x 10, 10 x 11,11 x 12, 12 x 13. **

**So, 150 is wrong and must be replaced by (12 x 13) i.e. 156.**

**S12. Ans.(c) **

**Sol. The lady shall bake in an ‘oven’ but ‘oven’ is called ‘grinder’. So, the lady will bake in a ‘grinder’.**

**S13. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. **

**Now, it is obvious that Shikha is facing south. **

**S14. Ans.(b) **

**Sol. **

**(4)²-2=2 (the power is ignored) **

**(3)****²****-3=0 **

**(9)****²****-1=8 **

**(8)****²****-4=4 **

**S15. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. In TEA, the alphabetical positions of T, E and A are 20, 5 and 1. The positions numbers are multiplied to get the code as 100. And then divided by the number of letters(3)**

**So, The code is 100/3.**

**Similarly, MAT can be coded as 13×1×20= 260.**

**The code is 260/3 **
