Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol.

Same pattern follow by MUSIC -> LWPMX

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.

Finally, in the code so obtained, the last letter of the word is inserted at the end.
Same pattern follow by LACK -> KBBLK
So, GRID -> FSHED

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Clearly, each letter is coded by a numeral which is 2 less than the numeral denoting the position of the letter in the English alphabet. The code for the word is obtained by joining together physically the number codes for the individual letters.
C,O,L are 3th, 15th and 12th letters respectively. So, their codes are 1, 13 and 10 respectively.
Thus, the code for COOL becomes 1131310.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Clearly, each word is coded by the numeral which is thrice the number of letters in the word.
So, RELATIVE = (Number of letter in RELATIVE) × 3 = 8 × 3 = 24.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. A girl will sleep on ‘Bed’ but ‘Bed’ is ‘Pipe’, So she will sleep on ‘Pipe’.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. A boy is ‘Dwarf’ but ‘Black’ is called ‘Dwarf’. So ‘Black’ is correct for Boy.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. The required region is the one which is common to all the four circles i.e. 8.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. The required common region of S(Science) and T(mathematics) is Union of regions  8,10,11 and 12.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. The required region is the one which lies inside circle C but outside circle W i.e. 6, 10 and 4.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. The required region is the one which is common to circles S, T and W but lies outside circle C i.e. 12.

S11. Ans.(b)
Sol. The required region is the one which is common to circle W and T but lies outside circle C i.e. 12 & 13.

S14. Ans.(b)
Sol. After changing sign
= 25 + 4 – 18 ÷ 3 × 7
= 29 – 6 × 7
= 29 – 42 = – 13

S15. Ans.(c)
Sol. After changing sign
= 45 – 10 × 75 ÷ 15 + 56
= 45 – 10 × 5 + 56
= 45 – 50 + 56
= 51
