Q.1 Which two numbers should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?
9 + 7 × 5 – 18 ÷ 2 = 3 × 4 – 10 + 45 ÷ 5
1. 18 and 45
2. 7 and 4
3. 2 and 5
4. 9 and 3
Correct Answer is Option 2. 7 and 4 
Interchanging the numbers and using BODMAS rule,
Option 3 → 2 and 5
9 + 7 × 2 – 18 ÷ 5 = 3 × 4 – 10 + 45 ÷ 2
9 + 7 × 2 – 3. 6 = 3 × 4 – 10 + 22. 5
9 + 14 – 3. 6 = 12 – 10 + 22. 5
23 – 3. 6 = 34. 5 – 10
19. 4 is not equal to 24. 5
Option 1 → 18 and 45
9 + 7 × 5 – 45 ÷ 2 = 3 × 4 – 10 + 18 ÷ 5
9 + 7 × 5 – 22. 5 = 3 × 4 – 10 + 3. 6
9 + 35 – 22. 5 = 12 – 10 + 3. 6
44 – 22. 5 = 15. 6 – 10
21. 5 is not equal to 5. 6
Option 4 → 9 and 3
3 + 7 × 5 – 18 ÷ 2 = 9 × 4 – 10 + 45 ÷ 5
3 + 7 × 5 – 9 = 9 × 4 – 10 + 9
3 + 35 – 9 = 36 – 10 + 9
38 – 9 = 45 – 10
29 is not equal to 35
Option 4 → 7 and 4
9 + 4 × 5 – 18 ÷ 2 = 3 × 7 – 10 + 45 ÷ 5
9 + 4 × 5 – 9 = 3 × 7 – 10 + 9
9 + 20 – 9 = 21 – 10 + 9
29 – 9 = 30 – 10
20 = 20
Hence, option 2 is the correct answer.
Q.2 Arrange the following words in the order in which they appear in an English dictionary.
1. Rightly
2. Rigidly
3. Righteous
4. Rigour
5. Rights
Options 
1. 3, 5, 1, 4, 2
2. 3, 1, 5, 4, 2
3. 3, 1, 5, 2, 4
4. 1, 3, 5, 2, 4
 
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 3,1,5,2,4
Explanation:

Righteous comes first in the order.

It is followed by Rightly.

Rightly is followed by Rights.

Rights is followed by Rigidly.

Rigidly is followed by Rigour.

The correct dictionary order is,

Righteous (3) → Rightly (1) → Rights (5) → Rigidly (2) → Rigour (4)

Hence, option 3 is the correct answer.
Q.3  Which of the option figure is the exact mirror image of the given figure when the mirror is held at the right side?

 

RST2PK9LOX

1.
2.

3.
4.

The correct answer is option 4

Explanation

The exact mirror image of the given figure when the mirror is held at the right side is,

 

Hence, option 4 is the correct answer.

 

Q.4 The ratio of the present ages of Asha and Lata is 5 : 6. If the difference between their ages is 6 years, then what will be Lata’s age after 5 years?

1. 35
2. 41

3. 45
4. 40

The correct answer is option 2 i.e. 41

Explanation:

According to the given information,

  • The ratio of present ages of Asha and Lata = 5 : 6

    Let the ages of Aha and Lata be 5x and 6x respectively. 

    Difference between their ages is 6 years

    6x – 5x = 6

    x = 6

    Then,

    Asha’s age, 5x = 5 × 6 = 30

    Lata’s age, 6x = 6 × 6 = 36

    Lata’s age after 5 years = 36 + 5 = 41

    Lata’s age after 5 years is ‘41’

    Hence, “41” is the correct answer.

Q.5  Select the option in which the numbers are related in the same way as the numbers in the given set.

(269, 278, 296)

 
1. (313, 322, 340)
2. (577, 586, 598)
3. (419, 430, 448)
4. (109, 118, 128)

The correct answer is option 1 i.e. (313, 322, 340)

(269, 278, 296) → 269 + 9 = 278, 278 + 18 = 296

Similarly,

Option 1 → (313, 322, 340) → 313 + 9 = 322, 322 + 18 = 340

Option 2 → (577, 586, 598) → 577 + 9 = 586, 586 + 12 = 598

Option 3 → (419, 430, 448) → 419 + 11 = 430, 430 + 18 = 448

Option 4 → (109, 118, 128) → 109 + 9 = 118, 118 + 10 = 128

‘(313, 322, 340)’ is related in the same way as the numbers in the given set.

Hence, “(313, 322, 340)” is the correct answer.

Q.6  Four letter-clusters have been given, out of which three are alike in some manner, while one is different. Select the odd letter-cluster.

How many female executives are there in the organisation?


1. 10
2. 5
3. 15
4. 11

The correct answer is option 2 i.e. 5

Conclusions:
I. Some animals are tigers.
II. No tiger is an animal. 
1. Only conclusion I follows
2. Either conclusion I or II follows
3. Neither conclusion I nor II follows
4. Only conclusion II follows.
 

The correct answer is option 2 i.e.“either conclusion 1 or conclusion 2”

Drawing the Venn diagram for the given statements,

Conclusion 1: Some animals are tigers → False (Possible but not definite)

Conclusion 2: No tiger is an animal → False (Possible but not definite)

But,

The given conclusions form a complementary pair.

Hence, “either conclusion 1 or conclusion 2” follow.

Q.13 Two positions of the same dice are shown. Select the number that will be on the face opposite to the one showing 6.

And,
222 = 484, 484/ 2 = 242
Similarly,
18= 324, 324/ 2 = 162
‘162’ is related to the third number in the same way as the second number is related to the first number and the sixth number is related to the fifth number.
Hence, “162” is the correct answer.
Q.20  Select the option in which the words share the same relationship as that shared by the given pair of words.
Clock : Time

1. Ammeter : Current
2. Taseometer : Wind
3. Balance : Scale
4. Anemometer : Strains
The correct answer is option 1 i.e.  Ammeter: Current
Clock is a mechanical or electrical device for measuring time, indicating hours, minutes, and sometimes seconds by hands on a round dial or by displayed figures.
Similarly,
Option 4 → Anemometer is a device used for measuring wind speed and direction.
Option 2 → Taseometer is an instrument used to measure strains.
Option 3 → Balance is an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.
Option 1 → Ammeter is an instrument used to measure current in a circuit.
‘Ammeter: Current’ share the same relationship as that shared by the given pair of words.
Hence, “Ammeter: Current” is the correct answer.

The pattern followed is,
(1st Number × 3rd Number) – (3rd Number) = 2nd Number
For Column 1:
(6 × 8) – 8
48 – 8 = 40
For Column 2:
(21 × 25) – 25
525 – 25 = 500
Similarly,
For Column 3:
(14 × 7) – 7
98 – 7 = 91
Hence, “91” is the correct answer.

62 – 67 + 76 = 83
 
1. 67 – 76 + 43 = 100
2. 76 – 75 + 77 = 56
3. 62 – 67 + 76 = 83
4. 78 – 68 + 66 = 59

The correct answer is option 1 i.e. 

Interchanging ‘ + ’ and ‘-‘ and ‘6’ and ‘7’,

Option 3 :

72 + 76 – 67 = 83

148 – 67 = 83

81 is not equal to 83

Option 4 :

68 + 78 – 77 = 59

146 – 77 = 59

69 is not equal to 59

Option 2:

67 + 65 – 66 = 57

132 – 66 = 57

66 is not equal to 57

Option 1:

76 + 67 – 43 = 100

143 – 43 = 100

100 = 100

Hence, option 1 is the correct answer.

Q.25 Select the figure that can replace the question mark (?) in the following series. 

1.
2.
3.
4. 

The correct answer is option 1 
The pattern followed is,
The symbols in the given image are rotating by 900 and the symbols circle and diamond when facing north and south direction are painted.
In the first image, the circle symbol is facing north, then it is rotated anti – clockwise by 900 in the second image and in the third image it is facing south, in the next image it is facing east.
In the first image, the diamond symbol is facing west, then it is rotated clockwise by 900 in the second image and in the third image it is facing east, in the next image it is facing south.
In the first image, the ‘ + ’ symbol is facing south, then it is rotated anti – clockwise by 900 in the second image and in the third image it is facing north, in the next image it is facing west.
The image which will come next in the series is,
