Q.1 Select the option that 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.
72 : 108 :: 84 : ? :: 102 : 153
1. 144
2. 126
3. 117
4. 135
Correct Answer is Option 2. i.e. 126
12 × 6 = 72, 12 × 9 = 108
Similarly,
14 × 6 = 84, 14 × 9 = 126
17 × 6 = 102, 17 × 9 = 153
Hence, ‘126’ is the correct answer.
Q.2 Shaan has a total Rs. 5,500 with him. He buys product ‘z’ at Rs. 5,000 from this sum and then sells it to another person, thus making a profit of 15% on it. With all the money he has now, he buys product ‘X’ and then sells it to another person making a profit of 25% on it. What is the total money Shaan has now?
1. Rs. 7, 812.50
2. Rs. 7, 815.50
3. Rs. 6, 325.00
4. Rs. 7, 187.50
The correct answer is option 1 i.e. Rs. 7, 812.50
Given:
Total Amount is Rs. 5,500.
Product ‘z’ bought at Rs. 5000.
Therefore, the remaining amount is 500.
Product ‘z’ sell at 15% profit.
SP = 5000\quad \times \quad \frac { 115 }{ 100 } =\quad 5750\quad
Now total amount is = 500 + 5750
= 6250
Now he buys product ‘X’ at Rs. 6250 and then sell it at 25% profit then the total remaining amount
= 6250\quad \times \quad \frac { 125 }{ 100 } =\quad 7812.50\quad
Hence, ’Rs. 7812.50’ is the correct answer.

13 × 5 = 65, 13 × 9 = 117
Similarly,
15 × 5 = 75, 15 × 9 = 135
Hence, (15, 75, 135) is the correct answer.
Q.10 Four position of the same dice are shown. Select the number that will be on the face opposite to the one showing ‘3’


1. 4
2. 5
3. 6
4. 2
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. 5
4 is adjacent to 2 and 3 in the first position of the dice.
3 is adjacent to 4 and 6 in the second position of the dice.
3 is adjacent to 6 and 1 in the third position of the dice.
3 is adjacent to 1 and 4 in the fourth position of the dice.
The only number left is 5.
Hence, 3 is opposite to 5.
Q.11 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 from the statements.
Statements:

2. Only conclusions I and II follow.
3. Only conclusions I and IV follow.
4. All the conclusions follow.
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. Only conclusions I and IV follow.
The least possible Venn diagram is as follows:
I. All parakeets are snakes. → True (All parakeets are cuckoos, All cuckoos are rabbits and, All rabbits are snakes.)
II. All snakes are cuckoos. → False(it is possible but not definite)
III. All rabbits are parakeets. → False (it is possible but not definite)
IV. All cuckoos are snakes. → True(All cuckoos are rabbits and All rabbits are snakes.)
Q.12 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.

3. 289 – 325
4. 225 – 241
The correct answer is option 4 i.e. 225 – 241
The pattern followed here is
1) 13= 169, 142  + 1 = 197
2) 112 = 121, 12+ 1 = 145
3) 17= 289, 18+ 1 = 325
4) 15= 225, 16+ 1 = 257 ≠ 241
Q.13 If each letter of the English alphabet is assigned an odd numerical value in increasing order, such as A = 1, B = 3 and so on then what will be the code of HONEY?
1. 132725747

3. 132725745
4. 152927947
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. 152927949
According to the question :
H = 15, O = 29, N = 27, E = 9 and Y = 49
Therefore, the code for ‘HONEY’ is ‘152927949’
Hence, ‘152927949’ is the correct answer.

Q.22 In the given Venn diagram, the triangle represents student playing table tennis, the rectangle represents students playing badminton, the circle represent female students, and the pentagon represents student playing football. The numbers given in the diagram represent the number of persons in that particular category.

How many female students play only both table tennis and badminton?

1. 22

2. 18
3. 7
4. 9

The correct answer is option 3 i.e. 7
Here, ‘7’ is common in only rectangle, circle and triangle.
So, 7 represent female students who play both table tennis and badminton.
Q.23 The two expressions on both the side of the ‘=’ sign will have the same value if two numbers from either side or both side are interchanged. Select the correct numbers to be interchanged from the given options.
3 + 5 × 4 – 24 ÷ 3 = 7 × 4 – 3 + 36 ÷ 6

2. 5, 7
3. 4, 7
4. 24, 36
The correct answer is option 2  i.e. 5, 7
2)  5, 7
3 + 7 × 4 – 24 ÷ 3 = 5 × 4 – 3 + 36 ÷ 6
3 + 7 × 4 – 8 = 5 × 4 – 3 + 6
3 + 28 – 8 = 20 – 3 + 6
23 = 23
Hence, ‘5, 7’ is the correct answer.
Q.24 Select the set of letterers that when sequentially placed in the blanks of the given letter series will complete the series.
f_ hg _ fh _ gf _ hg _ fh _ g
1. f, g, h, f, g, h

3. g, f, g, f, h, f
4. h, f, g, h, f, g
The correct answer is option 2 i.e. g, h, f, g, h, f
2) g, h, f, g, h, f → f g h/g h f/h f g/f g h/g h f/h f g → follows a pattern.
‘fgh’ repeats a cyclic pattern.
Q.25 In a certain code language, U is written as C, K is written as H, L is written as U, N is written as E, S is written as L, E is written as K, and C is written as N. How will ‘KNUCKLES’ be written in that language?
1. KECNKUHL
2. CHUECKN
3. HECNHUKL
4. HECNHULK
The correct answer is option 3 i.e. HECNHUKL
U → C, K → H, L → U, N → E, S → L, E → K, and C → N
So, ’KNUCKLES’ is written as ‘HECNHUKL’.
