Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Except 91, all are prime numbers.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. The top left-hand number is obtained by adding the bottom two numbers. The top right-hand number is the result of dividing the bottom two numbers.
Thus, 12 + 3 = 15, 12 ÷ 3 = 4;
22 + 11 = 33, 22 + 11 = 2;
18 + 9 = 27, 18 ÷ 9 = 2.
So, 32 + X = 36 and 32 ÷ X = 8 or X = 4.

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. There is 2 series
I- 6, 17, 28,  (difference is 11)
II- 8, 19, 30, (difference is 11)
So, 28 + 11 = 39

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. The digits of the number inside the circle are the difference between the corresponding numbers above and below the circle.
In the first figure, 1 = (2 – 1), 3 = (6 – 3), 1 = (5 – 4)
In the second figure, 2 = (4 – 2), 4 = (6 – 2), 8 = (8 – 0)
Thus, the digits of the missing number are (7 – 5), (9 – 3) and (3 – 1) i.e. 2, 6, 2.
So, missing number = 262.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol.
