(d) LCUOD

Solutions:
S1.Ans.(d)
Sol. 8 x 1 – 2 = 6
6 x 2 – 3 = 9
9 x 3 – 4 = 23
23 x 4 – 5 = 87
87 x 5 – 6 = 429 …
S2.Ans.(c)
Sol. Changing the sign as per question,
9 × 8 + 8 ÷ 4 – 8 = ?
= 72 + 2 – 8 = 66
S3.Ans.(d)
Sol. 6^2 + 7 = 36 + 7 = 43
Similarly
5^2 + 7 = 25 + 7 = 32
S4.Ans.(b)
Sol. First term = (6)^2 + 6= 42
Second term = (7)^2 + 7 = 56
Similarly
Fourth term = (11)^2 + 11 = 132
Third term = (10)^2 + 10 = 110
S5.Ans.(a)
Sol. babbc, this condition fulfill the sequence
S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. The word is GARNISH meaning ‘Decorate’.

So, ‘deep’ – 2
S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. The the fourth, the sixth and the seventh digits of the number 187642539 are 6,2 and 5 respectively. The perfect square of a two-digit odd number, formed using these digits, is 625. And, 625= 25^2
So, the required odd number is 25. Clearly, its units digits is 5
S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. TREATMENT cannot be formed by using the letters of ESTRANGEMENT.
