**(1-3):**

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

**S1. Ans.(d)**

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

**S2. Ans.(c)**

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

**S3. Ans.(a)**

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

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

**S4. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**

**After changing signs according to the question, the new equation will be:**

**Here,**

**(a) 10 – 5 + 14 × 10 ÷ 15 = 14(1/3)**

**(b) 30 – 5 – 14 + 10 ÷ 15 = 11(2/3)**

**(c) 30 + 5 – 14 × 10 ÷ 15 = 25(2/3)**

**(d) 30 ÷ 5 + 4 × 10 – 15 = 31**

**From option (d),**

**30 ÷ 5 + 4 × 10 – 15**

**= 6 + 40 – 15**

**= 46 – 15 = 31 (True)**

**S5. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**

**S6. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. MEDIATE can be formed from the letters of RECOMMENDATION.**

**S7. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. Second is an enlarged form of the first.**

**S8. Ans.(d)**

**Sol. Series pattern : +8, +10, +12, +14**

**So, missing number = 40 + 14 = 54**

**S9. Ans.(c)**

**Sol. The pattern is + 0.05, + 0.10, +0.15,…**

**So, missing term = 0.8 + 0.20 = 1.**

**S10. Ans.(b)**

**Sol. SERMON can be formed from the letters of VENTURESOME.**

**S11. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**
