Solution
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. A is codes a 1, B as 2, C as 3, as 4, …….., L as 12, M as 13,…….., Y as 25, Z as 26. So, the code for ALARM is 1-12-1-18-13.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. In the first and second statements, the common code-words are ‘ki’ and ‘ma’ and the common words are ‘is’ and ‘playing’. So ‘ki’ and ‘ma’ are the codes for ‘is’ and ‘playing’.
In the second and fourth statements, the common code-word is ‘kop’ and the common word is ‘tennis’. So, ‘kop’ stands for ‘tennis’.
So, ‘ja’ is Asha.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Rajiv’s son’s uncle – Rajiv’s brother.
So, the old man’s son is Rajiv’s brother i.e. the old man is Rajiv’s father.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Thus, the sequence:
N/Q, N/Q, M, P, O, R, S

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol.

The movements of Shalini are as shown in figure.
Clearly, EB = DC = 40 m
Shalini’s distance from the starting point A
= (AB – EB)
= (75 – 40)m = 35 m

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol.

A lies to the west of C.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. C is the 3rd letter in the word as well as in the English alphabet.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. The new number formed after rearrangement is 4 3 0 1 8 2 7 9 6 5
The seventh digit from the left end is 7. The third digit to the left of 7 is 1.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. P is 13th from the left end and R is 13th from the right end.
So, number of persons between P and R = 40 –(13+13) = 14

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. On interchanging 9 and 6, we get the statements as:
8 ÷ 2 × 5 – 11 + 6 = 9 × 2 – 5 + 4 ÷ 2 or
4 × 5 – 11 + 6 = 18 – 5 + 2 or 15 = 15, which is true
