Q.1 Four letter-clusters have been given, out of which three are alike in some manner and one is different. Select the odd letter-cluster.
1. HMRV
2. BGLQ
3. KPUZ
4. OTYD
Correct Answer is Option 1. ‘HMRV’
The pattern followed is,
All follow the same pattern, except ‘HMRV’.
Q.2 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 conclusions logically follow(s) from the statements/
Statement:
1. All prizes are medals.
2. Some prizes are certificates
Conclusions:
I. Some certificates are prizes
II. Some medals are prizes
III. Some certificates are medals.
 
1. Only conclusions I and II follow
2. Only conclusions I and III follow
3. Only conclusions II and III follow.
4. All conclusions I, II and III follows
 
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. All conclusions I, II and III follows
Hence, “all conclusions 1, 2 and 3” follow.
 
Q.3 Select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in the following series.
87, 89, 92, 97, 104, 115, ?, 145
1. 133
2. 132
3. 125
4. 128
The correct answer is option 4 i.e.  128
The pattern followed is,
The series is obtained by adding prime numbers.
Hence, “128” is the correct answer.
Q.4 Select the option that is related to the third number in the same way as the second number is related to the first number.
7 : 239 ∷ 9 : ?
1. 728
2. 743
3. 711
4. 1029
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 711
The pattern followed is,
For,
7 : 239
2 + 3 + 9 = 14, 14 is divisible by 7
14 / 7 = 2
Similarly,
Option 3 → 711 → 7 + 1 + 1 = 9, 9 is divisible by 9
Option 1 → 728 → 7 + 2 + 8 = 17, 17 is not divisible by 9
Option 4 → 1029 → 1 + 0 + 2 + 9 = 12, 12 is not divisible by 9
Option 2 → 743 → 7 + 4 + 3 = 14, 14 is not divisible by 9
‘711’ is related to the third number in the same way as the second number is related to the first number.
Q.5 Select the option in which the words share the same relationship as that shared by the given pair of words.
Calendar : Date
 
1. Food : Vegetarian
2. Class : Group
3. Weight : Kilogram
4. Clock : Time
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. clock : time
Calendar is a chart or series of pages showing the days, weeks, and months of a particular year.
Similarly,
Clock is a mechanical or electrical device for measuring time.
‘Clock : Time’ share the same relationship as that shared by the given pair of words.
Hence, “clock : time” is the correct answer.
Q.6 Which two signs and two numbers should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?
17 + 11 – 12 × 36 ÷ 6 = 80

1. × and – ; 17 and 12
2. × and – ; 17 and 11
3. + and – ; 6 and 12
4. × and – ; 6 and 12
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. × and – ; 6 and 12
Interchanging the two signs and two numbers and using BODMAS rule,
Option 4 → × and – ; 6 and 12
17 + 11 × 6 – 36 ÷ 12 = 80
17 + 11 × 6 – 3 = 80
17 + 66 – 3 = 80
83 – 3 = 80
80 = 80
Option 3 → + and – ; 6 and 12
17 – 11 + 6 × 12 ÷ 6 = 80
17 – 11 + 6 × 2 = 80
17 – 11 + 12 = 80
29 – 11 is not equal t0 80
Option 2 → × and – ; 17 and 11
11 + 17 × 12 – 36 ÷ 6 = 80
11 + 17 × 12 – 6 = 80
11 + 204 – 6 = 80
215 – 6 is not equal to 80
Option 1 → × and – ; 17 and 12
12 + 11 × 17 – 36 ÷ 6 = 80
12 + 11 × 17 – 6 = 80
12 + 187 – 6 = 80
199 – 6 is not equal to 80
 
Q.7 In a certain code language, ‘DEPEND’ is written as ‘EPHTJJ’. How will ‘TRAVEL’ is written as in that language?
1. MGZEXZ
2. NGYFWZ

3. (14, 210, 276)
4. (12, 180, 228)
The correct answer is option 4 i.e (12, 180, 228)
The pattern followed is,
1st term × 15 = 2nd term
1st term × 19 = 3rd term
(11, 165, 209) → 11 × 15 = 165, 11 × 19 = 209
Similarly,
Option 4 → (12, 180, 228) → 12 × 15 = 180, 12 × 19 = 228
Option 2 → (17, 245, 323) → 17 × 15 = 255 not 245, 17 × 19 = 323
Option 1 → (15, 225, 275) → 15 × 15 = 225, 15 × 19 = 285, not 275
Option 3 → (14, 210, 323) → 14 × 15 = 210, 14 × 19 = 266, not 276
‘(12, 180, 228)’ are related in the same way as are the numbers in the given set.
Q.9 In a certain code language, ‘SERVANT’ is coded as ‘192182211420’. How will ‘MAGNIFY’ be coded as in that language?
1. 1317143625
2. 1426693625
3. 1417139625
4. 1316143522
Correct Answer is option 1 i.e.“1317143625” 
Vowels are A, E, I, O and U
A → 1, E → 2, I → 3, O → 4 and U → 5
The pattern followed is,
Similarly,
Hence, “137143625” is the correct answer.

‘3’ is facing opposite ‘5’
And,
‘1’ is facing opposite ‘4’
The figures which can be formed by folding the given sheet are ‘B’ and ‘C’.
Q.12 A + B means ‘A is the father of B’;
A – B means ‘A is the sister of B’;
A × B means ‘A is the brother of B’;

If, U + H × L – Q ÷ R – Y, then how is L related to Y?
1. Mother’s brother
2. Mother’s sister
3. Maternal grandmother
4. Sister
 
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. mother’s sister
Drawing the diagram for ‘U + H × L – Q ÷ R – Y’,
L is Mother’s sister to Y.
Hence, “mother’s sister” is the correct answer.

Q.16 The total of the ages of Amit and Suvarna on 1 January 2015 is 61 years. Amit is three years younger than Suvarna. What was the age of Suvarna on 1 January 2010?
1. 32 years
2. 24 years
3. 27 years
4. 29 years
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 27 years
According to the given information,
Total ages of Amit and Suvarna on January 1st 2015 is 61 years.
Let the age of Amit be ‘x’ and Suvarna be ‘y’.
x + y = 61
Amit is three years younger than Suvarna
x = y – 3
Substituting it in ‘x + y = 61’
y – 3 + y = 61
2y – 3 = 61
2y = 64
y = 32
So,
Suvarna’s age = 32 and Amit’s age = 32 – 3 = 29
Suvarna’s age on 1st January 2010 is 32 – 5 = 27 years
Q.17 If the following words are arranged as per their order in the English dictionary which of the following words will come third in the sequence?

The correct answer is option 4 Isologs
Isolate comes first in the order.
Isolate is followed by Isoline.
Isoline is followed by Isologs.
Isologs is followed by Isomer.
Isomer is followed by Isonomy.
Isonomy is followed by Isotope.
The correct dictionary order is,
Isolate (4) → Isoline (2) → Isologs (5) → Isomer (1) → Isonomy (6) → Isotope (3)
The word which will come third in the sequence is ‘Isologs’.

The pattern followed is,
Option 1 → 11 : 118 → 11 : 112 – 3
Option 3 → 21 : 437 → 21 : 212 – 4
Option 4 → 33 : 1085 → 33 : 332 – 4
Option 2 → 35 : 1221 → 35 : 352 – 4
All follow the same pattern, except ’11 : 118’
