Solutions

S1.Ans.(b)
Sol.

S2.Ans.(a)
Sol. The first, second, third, fourth, fifth, ….. letters of the first group are moved one, two, three, four, five, ….. steps forward respectively to obtain the corresponding letters of the second group.

S3.Ans.(b)
Sol.  The relationship is x:(7x/2).

S4.Ans.(a)
Sol. 121 is the only perfect square number in the group.

S5.Ans.(b)
Sol.   After changing signs according to the question, the new equations will be:
Here,
(1) 5 ÷ 2 + 1 < 3 ÷ 14 × 11
Or 3.5 <2 5/14 (Incorrect)
(2) 5 × 2 + 1 = 3 × 4 – 1 (Correct)
(3) 5 + 2 – 1 = 3 – 4 + 11
or, 9 = 10 (Incorrect)
(4) 5 – 2 + 1 > 3 × 4 + 11
or, 4 > 23
from option (2)
5 × 2 + 1 = 3 × 4 – 1
= 11 = 11 (True)

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. AVERT = A+V+E+R+T = 66

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. OPINION can be formed using the letters of the COMPANIONSHIP.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. By reversing the letters of THOUGHT we get THGUOHT. Similarly, THROAT -> TAORHT.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. 100+5−10×250÷200 = 100
After changing sign
100 × 5 ÷ 10 + 250 – 200
50 + 250 – 200
100

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. 2*3 = (6) – (2+3) = 1
3*4 = (12) – (3+4) = 5
Similarly
7*9 = (63) – (7+9) = 47
