Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. The pattern is -1,×10+1,-1,×10+1,-1,×10+1,……
So, missing term = 100 × 10 + 1 = 1001.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol.

S4. Ans.(b)

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. In all other pairs, 2nd number = (1st number × 4) – 10.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol.

So, D is the father of B.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. In terms of age, we have: B < A, E < C, E < D, B < C.
Since E lies between A and C, the sequence becomes:
B < A < E < C < D or B < A < E < D < C.
Clearly, whichever may be the case, E is elder to B. Hence, (d) is necessarily true.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. The movements of Avinash  are shown in Figure (P to B, B to C, C to D and D to Q).

Clearly, distance of Q from P
= PQ = (DQ – PD) = (DQ – BC)
= (40 – 30) m = 10 m.
Also, Q is to the West of P.
Q is 10 m West of P.
