Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. In all the numbers, the product of the first and last digits is a multiple of the sum of the middle two digits.
Thus, 4 × 8 = 32 is a multiple of (7 + 1) i.e. 8,
5 × 7 = 35 is a multiple of (6 + 1) i.e. 7 and so on.
So, in 5412, 5 × 2 = 10 and (4+1) = 5

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. The given series may be divided into 2 groups:
I. A, B, C, D, E, F, ?, ?   and   II. N, O, P, ?
Clearly, the given series consists of two terms of I followed by one term of II. The missing terms in I are G and H while the missing term in II is Q.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. PLEASE which cannot be formed using the letters of ENCYCLOPEDIA.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. In 2nd column:
6, 62 , 63
In 3rd column:
7 , 72 , 73
So, In 1st column :
5 , 52 , 53

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Using the correct symbols, we have:
=12 – 12 × 28 ÷ 7 + 15
= 12 – 12 × 4 + 15
= 12 – 48 + 15 = 27 – 48 = -21

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Clearly, every letter is assigned is numerical code obtained by adding 6 to the numeral denoting the position of that letter in the English alphabet.
Thus, A is coded as (1 + 6) i.e. 7, B as (2 + 6) i.e. 8, C as (3 + 6) i.e. 9, …., M as (13 + 6) i.e. 19, …., Z as (26 + 6) i.e. 32.
Since, D, A, N, G, E, R are 4th, 1st, 14th, 7th, 5th, and 18th letters in the English alphabet.
So, their respective codes are (4 + 6), (1 + 6), (14 + 6), (7 + 6), (5 + 6), (18 + 6) i.e. 10, 7, 20, 13, 11, 24. So, the code for DANGER is 10 – 7 – 20 – 13 – 11 – 24.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. In 1st column:
3 × 4 × 3 = 36
In 2nd column:
5 × 6 × 7 = 210
So, in 3rd column:
9 × ? × 2 =36
? = 2
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. The series is CABBAC/CABBAC/CABBAC. Thus, the pattern ‘CABBAC’ is repeated.
