**Solutions**

**S1. Ans.(b)**

**S2. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**The series is abb/aaabbb/aaaabbbb/a. Thus the letters are repeated twice, then trice, the four times and so on.

**S3. Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**The words in each pair are synonyms of each other.

**S4. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**First provides protection from the second.

**S5. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**In all other pairs, (1st number -1 )/7 = 2nd number.

**S6. Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**O + 5 = T, T + 10 = D

P + 5 = U , N + 10 = X

**S7. Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**In each set, 2nd number = (1st number – 4)

and 3rd number = (2nd number – 8)

**S8. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**The relationship is x∶(x-119).

**S9. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**The relationship is x^2 ∶(x+1)^2+1.

**S10. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**The correct pattern is +5, +8, +11, +14, ……

So, 47 is wrong and must be replaced by (32 + 14) i.e. 46.
