Solutions

S1.Ans.(d)
Sol. Each set consists of numbers which are obtained by multiplying a certain number by 9, 7 and 5 respectively. Thus, in the given set, 63 = 7 × 9. 49 = 7 × 7 , 35 = 7 × 5.
Similarly, 81 = 9 × 9, 63 = 9 x 7, 45 = 9 x 5.

S2.Ans.(a)
Sol.  First is the remedy for second.

S3.Ans.(d)
Sol.  The numbers are 12 + 1,22 + 1,
32 + 1 and so on.

So. 64 is wrong. The correct term should be (82 + 1)

S4.Ans.(c)
Sol.  The series is abcd/aabbccdd/aaabbbcccddd.
Thus, each letter of first sequence is repeated two times in the second sequence and three times in the third sequence.

S5.Ans.(c)
Sol.  Each letter of the word is moved four steps backward to obtain the code.

S6.Ans.(b)
Sol.
‘sti nro kti’ -> ‘clouds pour down’    ……(i)
‘nro bsi mit’ -> ‘down he goes         ……..(ii)
‘bsi nro zpi’ -> ‘died down he’         …….(iii)
In (ii) and (iii), the common code word are ‘nro’ and ‘bsi’
So, ‘nro’/’bsi’ -> ‘down ‘/’he’
Thus, in (ii), ‘mit’ -> ‘goes’

S7.Ans.(b)

S8.Ans.(c)
Sol. The number of triangle = 12

S9.Ans. (a)

S10.Ans.(c)
Sol.   Number of students behind Tina in rank = (31 – 7) = 24.
So, Tina is 25th from the bottom.
Similarly, number of students behind Lina in rank = (31 – 11) = 20.
So, Lina is 21st from the bottom.
