**Solutions**

**S1. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. Clearly, the individual letters of the terms of the given series follow the pattern shown below:**

**Thus, the missing term is ZKW. Hence, the answer is (b).**

**S2. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. Clearly, the correct sequence is:**

**2^3-1,3^3-1,4^3-1,5^3-1,6^3-1,7^3-1,8^3-1.**

**So, 28 is wrong and should be replaced by (3^3-1) i.e. 26.**

**Hence, the answer is (b).**

**S3. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. Trigonometry is the study of triangles. Similarly, mensuration is the study of areas.**

**S4. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. A ‘tractor’ is used to plough a field. But a ‘tractor’ is called ‘car’. So, a ‘car’ will be used to plough the field.**

**S5. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. In the first column, 4^2+2^2+1^2 = 21.**

**In the second column, 5^2+3^2+8^2 = 98.**

**∴ Missing number = 6^2+7^2+3^2 = (36 + 49 + 9) = 94.**

**S6. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. In 2nd row, 2 × 9 + 3 × 17 = 69.**

**In 3rd row, 2 × 13 + 3 × 11 = 59.**

**Let the missing number in the first row be x.**

**Then, 2x + 3 × 13 = 49 ⇔ 2x = 10 ⇔ x = 5.**

**S9. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. HANKER**

**S10. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. The new alphabet-series is:**

**Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F E D C B A**

**Required letter = 9 + 5 =14th letter = N**

**S11. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. I is the 8th letter in the word as well as in the English alphabet.**

**(12-14):**

**The villages are located as shown in the below figure.**

**S12. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. Clearly, A is in the middle of G and C.**

**S13. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. Clearly, F and B are the farthest from one another.**

**S14. Ans.(a)**

**Sol. Required distance = FE = FA + AE = FA + GD**

**= (2 + 2) km = 4 km**

**S15. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. Only daughter of woman’s father – woman herself. So, the man is woman’s husband.**
