Q.7 In the given Venn diagram, the ‘circle’ represents ‘ladies’, the ‘triangle’, represents ‘teachers’, and the ‘rectangle’ represents ‘unmarried persons’. The numbers given in the diagram represent the number of persons in that particular category.
How many married ladies are teachers?
1. 9
2. 11
3. 3
4. 6
 
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 3 
The require number will lie in the intersection of triangle and circle.
Q.8 Four number-pairs have been given, out of which three are alike in some manner and one is different. Select the number-pair that is different from the rest.
1. 39 – 72
2. 28 – 60
3. 42 – 12
4. 57 -38
The correct answer is option 3 i.e 57 – 38
The logic is:
1) 28 – 60 → (82 – 22) = 60
2) 42 – 12 → (42 – 22) = 12
3) 39 – 72 → (92 – 32) = 72
4) 57 – 38 → (72 – 52) ≠ 38
Hence, ’57 – 38’ is the correct answer.
Q.9  Select the option in which the words share the same relationship as that shared by the given pair of words.
Faculty : Teachers
1. Ants ; Flock
2. Fleet : Trucks
3. Galaxy : Apartments
4. Colony : Wolves
Correct Answer is option 2 i.e. Fleet : Trucks
Faculty : Teachers → The faculty is described as a group of teachers. (Collective noun)
Similarly,
1) Ants ; Flock → A group of ants is called a colony. So this is not an example of collective noun.
2) Colony : Wolves → A group of wolves is called a pack. So this is not an example of collective noun.
3) Galaxy : Apartments → A group of apartments is called a block. So this is not an example of collective noun.
4) Fleet : Trucks → A group of trucks is called a fleet. So this is an example of collective noun.
Hence, ‘Fleet : Trucks’ is the correct answer.

Q.10 Select the figure that can replace the question mark (?) in the following series.


1.


2.
3.
4.

The correct answer is option 4 
The first two figures consist a triangle, then the next two figure has square inside it, so the next figure will definitely have pentagon inside it.
Again the arrows present in the images at odd place is same. Again the arrow at even place is same. So, the next image in the series is at odd place, so the arrow will be similar to that in the 1st and 3rd image.
All these conditions is satisfied by option 4.
Q.11 Three different positions of the same dice are shown. Select the symbol that will be on the face opposite to the one showing ‘<’.
 

1.   #
2.  @
3.  &
4.  $
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. @
‘<’ is present in 3rd dice.
The common symbol in 2nd and 3rd dice is ‘%’.
So, keeping ‘%’ constant and then rotating in clockwise direction, we get the symbols opposite to each other:
%
@
$
#
&
 
So, ‘@’ is opposite to ‘<’.
Hence, ‘@’ is the correct answer.
Q.12  Read the given statements and conclusions carefully. Assuming that the information given in the statements is true, even if it appears to be at variance with commonly known facts, decide which of the given conclusion logically follows(s) from the statements.
Statements:
1. All dogs are lions.
2. No elephant is a lion.
Conclusions:
I. No dog is an elephant.
II. no lion is a dog.
III. Some elephants are dogs.
1. Only conclusion I follows
2. Only conclusions II or III follows
3. Only conclusions I and III follows
4. Only conclusion II follows.
 
The correct answer is option 1 i.e.only conclusion I follows
Drawing the Venn diagram for the given statements,
I. No dog is an elephant. → True
II. No lion is a dog. → False
III. Some elephants are dogs. → False
Hence, only conclusion I follows.
Q.13  Eight words have been given, out of which seven are alike in some manner and one is different. Select the odd word.
Monitor, HeadMphone, Mouse, Keyboard, Windows, Printer, Scanner, speaker
1. Mouse
2. Printer 
3. onitor 
4. Windows
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. Windows
Monitor, Headphone, Mouse, Keyboard, Printer, Scanner, Speaker → These are devices and are physical in nature.
Windows → It is an operating system and not physical in nature.
Hence, ‘windows’ is the odd one out.
Q.14  Select the option that is related to the third number in the same way as the second number is related to the first number.
2809 : 53 ∷ 1024 : ?

1. 31
2. 35
3. 32
4. 33

 

The Correct answer is Option 3 i.e. 32
The logic is:
2809 : 53 → 532 : 53
Similarly,
1024 : ? → 322 : 32
Hence, ‘32’ is the correct answer.
Q.15 Four letter-cluster have been given, out of which three are alike in some manner and one is different. Select the odd letter-cluster. 
1.  JMPS
2. BEHK
3. ADGJ
4. FHKM
The correct answer is option 4 
1) JMPS
Similarly, Options 2 and 3   (+3)
4) FHKM
Hence, ‘FHKM’ is the odd one out.
Q.16  In an exam of 80 questions, a correct answer is given + 1 mark, a wrong answer is given – 1 mark, and if a question in not attempted there are zero marks. If a student attempted only 80% of the question and got 32 marks, then how many questions did he answer correctly?
 
1. 32
2. 48
3. 16
4. 56
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. 48
Let us consider that the student answered ‘a’ answers correctly.
Now, the student attempted only 80% of the questions (given)
80% of 80 = 64
So, number of incorrect questions = (64 – a)
Also, the student scored 32 marks (given)
So, according to question:
a – (64 – a) = 32
→ a – 64 + a = 32
→ 2a = 96
→ a = 48
Hence, the student answered 48 questions correctly.answer.

1. 212
2. 209
3. 261
4. 122
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 261
The logic is:
1st row: 52 + 42 = 41
3rd row: 92 + 112 = 202
Similarly,
2nd row: 152 + 62 = 261
Hence, ‘261’ is the correct answer.
Q.19  Arrange the following words in a logical and meaningful order.
1. Hexagon
2. Nonagon
3. Pentagon
4. Heptagon
5. Octagon
1. 3 – 1 – 4 – 5 – 2 
2. 1 – 4 – 5 – 2 – 3 
3. 1 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 2 
4. 4 – 3 – 1 – 2 – 5
The correct answer is option 1 i.e. ‘3 – 1 – 4 – 5 – 2’
1. Hexagon → Six sides
2. Nonagon → Nine sides
3. Pentagon → Five sides
4. Heptagon → Seven sides
5. Octagon → Eight sides
Arranging the following polygons in ascending order:
3. Pentagon → Five sides
1. Hexagon → Six sides
4. Heptagon → Seven sides
5. Octagon → Eight sides
2. Nonagon → Nine sides
Hence, the correct logical and meaningful order is ‘3 – 1 – 4 – 5 – 2’.

Hence, ‘XXZ’ is the correct answer.
Q.21  
A + B means ‘B is the brother of A’;
A – B means ‘A is the mother of B’;
A × B means ‘A is the father of B’;
A ÷ B means ‘ A is the son of B’.
If, P + R × T – Q ÷ s + U, then how is S related to R?
1. Grandfather
2. Brother
3. Grandson
4. Son-in-law
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. Son-in-Law
P + R × T – Q ÷ S + U → P is brother of R, R is father of T, T is mother of Q, Q is son of S, S is brother of U.
 
S is son-in-law of R.
Hence,
Son-in-law’ is the correct answer.
Q.22

1. 23
2. 24
3. 22
4. 21
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 22 
The logic is:
1st row: 13 – 7 = 6
2nd row: 22 – 4 = 18
Similarly,
? – 15 = 7
? = 7 + 15
? = 22
Hence, ‘22’ is the correct answer.
Q.23  Which two signs should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?
36 ÷ 2 × 12 + 3 – 6 = 24
1. – and ÷ 
2. × and –
3. + and × 
4. ÷ and × 
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. × and –
3) + and ×
Given equation: 36 ÷ 2 × 12 + 3 – 6 = 24
After interchanging ‘+ and ×’, we get:
L.H.S = 36 ÷ 2 + 12 × 3 – 6
= 18 + 36 – 6
= 54 – 6
= 48 ≠ R.H.S
4) ÷ and ×
Given equation: 36 ÷ 2 × 12 + 3 – 6 = 24
After interchanging ‘÷ and ×’, we get:
L.H.S = 36 × 2 ÷ 12 + 3 – 6
= 6 + 3 – 6
= 3 ≠ R.H.S
1) – and ÷
Given equation: 36 ÷ 2 × 12 + 3 – 6 = 24
After interchanging ‘- and ÷’, we get:
L.H.S = 36 – 2 × 12 + 3 ÷ 6
= 36 – 24 + 0.5
= 12.5 ≠ R.H.S
2) × and –
Given equation: 36 ÷ 2 × 12 + 3 – 6 = 24
After interchanging ‘× and -’, we get:
L.H.S = 36 ÷ 2 – 12 + 3 × 6
= 18 – 12 + 18
= 36 – 1
= 24 = R.H.S
Hence, ‘× and –‘ is the correct answer..
