Solutions:
S1.Ans.(c)
Sol. Star is related to Telescope, similarly Ship is related to Periscope.
S2.Ans.(a)
Sol. FUN = F × U × N
6 × 21 × 14
=1764
S3.Ans.(b)
Sol. ELIGIBLE cannot be formed using the letters of LEGIBILITY, because it does not contain 2 “E”.
S4.Ans.(d)
Sol. Meaningful sequence
4. Measure , 3. Mark, 1. Cut, 5. Tailor , 2. Put on
S5.Ans.(c)
Sol. 25 + 5 ÷ 3 = (25 × 3) – (5 × 3)= 60 ,
and 35 + 5 ÷ 3 = (35 × 3) – (5 × 3) = 90 ,
then 45 + 5 ÷ 3 = (45 × 3) – (5 × 3) = 120
S6.Ans.(b)
Sol. 284 ÷ 4 = 71
Similarly, 576 ÷ 4 = 144
S7.Ans.(c)
Sol. Using the proper notations in (c), we get the statement as:
5 × 2 ÷ 2 < 10 – 4 + 8 or
5 × 1 < 18 – 4 or
5 < 14, which is true.
S8.Ans.(d)
