Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. E is the 5th letter in the word as well as in the English alphabet.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. The series is AABCC/BBCAA/CCABB/AABCC. Thus the letters move in a cyclic order and in each group, the middle letter occurs only once.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Except TS, there is a difference of 2 between letters.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol.
‘D’ = 00, 14, 23, 32, 41
‘O’ = 01, 10, 24, 33, 42
‘M’ = 58, 67, 76, 85, 99
‘E’ = 56, 65, 79, 88, 97

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Kiran’s new position is 17th from the left and 13th from the right.
So, number of children in the row = (16 + 1 + 12) = 29.
Now, Himanshu’s new position is Kiran’s earlier position which is 9th from the left.
Number of children to the right of Himanshu = (29 – 9) = 20.
Hence, Himanshu’s new position is 21st from the right.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol.
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. The pattern is + 0.05, + 0.10, +0.15, +0.20…
So, missing term = 0.65 + 0.15 = 0.8

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. External, Extra, Extraction, Extraordinary

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Arranging the letters in alphabetical order, we have:
A D E G I K N N R T U. Clearly, R is at the 9th position from left.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. Using the proper notations in (c), we get the statement as:
15 ÷ 3 – 5 + 8 + 2 = 10 or
5 – 5 + 8 + 2 = 10 or 10 = 10, which is true.

S11. Ans.(c)
Sol.
69- 25-12 = 69 – 37 = 32

S12. Ans.(c)
Sol. Number of triangle = 12

S13. Ans.(c)
Sol. So, the order is: N, O, P, Q, R, S, T.
Clearly, R is at the 5th position from left.

S14. Ans.(c)
Sol. Second is the S.I. unit of first.
