Q4. Which one of the four interchanges in signs and numbers would make the given equation correct?
3 + 5 – 2 = 4
(a) + and -, 2 and 3
(b) + and -, 2 and 5
(c) + and -, 3 and 5
(d) None of these
Q5. Mohini went to the movies nine days ago. She goes to the movies only on Thursday. What day of the week is today?
Q6. The positions of the first and the fifth digits in the number 83256479 are interchanged. Similarly the positions of the second and the sixth digits are interchanged and so on. Which of the following will be the third to the right of the seventh digit from the right end after rearrangement?
(d) None of these
Q7. If the following series is written in the reverse order, which number will be fourth to the right of the seventh number from the left?
7, 3, 9, 7, 0, 3, 8, 4, 6, 2, 1, 0, 5, 11, 13
Q8. Rearrange the letters given below to form a meaningful word and select from the given alternatives the word which is almost opposite in meaning to the word so formed.
R B A N O E H C E R
Directions (9-10): In each of the following questions, various terms of an alphabet series are given with one or more terms missing as shown by (?). Choose the missing terms out of the given alternatives.
Q9. Z, U, Q, ?, L
Q10. A, CD, GHI, ?, UVWXY
Sol. The pattern is -66, -55, -44, -33, -22, ……
So, missing term = 105 – 11 = 94
Sol. The pattern is ×3, +4, ×5, +6, ×7, …..
So, missing tem = 1127 + 8 = 1135
By making the interchanges given in (a), we get the question as 2 – 5 + 3 = 4 or 0 = 4, which is false.
By making the interchanges given in (b), we get the equation as 3 – 2 + 5 = 4 or 6 = 4, which is false.
By making the interchanges given in (c), we get the equation as 5 – 3 + 2 = 4 or 4 = 4, which is true.
So, the answer is (c).
Sol. Clearly, nine days ago, it was Thursday.
∴ Today is Saturday.
Sol. The new number formed after rearrangement is 6 4 7 9 8 3 2 5
The seventh digit from the right end is 4. The third digit to the right of 4 is 8.
Sol. The given series when written in the reserve order becomes:
13, 11, 5, 0, 1, 2, 6, 4, 8, 3, 0, 7, 9, 3, 7
Then 7th number from the left is 6. The 4th number to the right is 6 is 0.
Sol. The letters, on rearrangement, form the word ‘ABHORRENCE’ meaning ‘Hatred’, the opposite of which is ‘Liking’.
So, the answer is (a).
Sol. Each term consist of consecutive letters in order. The number of letters in the terms goes on increasing by one at each step. Also, there is a gap of one letter between the last letter of the first term and the first term letter of the second term; a gap of two letters between the last letter of the second term and the first letter of the third term; and so on. So, there should be a gap of three letters between the last letter of the third term and the first letter of the desired term.
So , The answer is = MNOP
In the last month i.e. in May daily we will provide you with a test of the previous years’ question papers, this will increase your confidence of solving the real exam and will make you familiar with the real-time exam.
