Solutions:
S1.Ans.(c)
Sol. Each letter in the word is moved one step forward to obtain the corresponding letter of the code.
S2.Ans.(d)
Sol. Each letter in the word is moved thirteen steps forward to obtain the corresponding letter of the code.
S3.Ans.(b)
Sol. Each letter in the word is replaced by a set of two letters – one preceding it and the other following it – in the code. Thus, P is replaced by OQ, R is replaced by QS and so on.
S4.Ans.(d)
Sol. Thus, A is coded as 1, B as 2, C as 3, D as 4,
….,L as 12, M as 13, …., Y as 25, Z as 26.
So, the code for PLANT is 16-12-1-14-20.
S5.Ans.(c)
Sol. The pattern is +2, +2, +4,+4, +6, +6
So, missing term = 12 + 6 = 18
S6.Ans.(c)
Sol. The pattern is ÷2 × 4, ÷ 2, × 4, ….
So, missing term = 192 ÷ 2 = 96
S7.Ans.(c)
Sol. The given sequence is a combination of two series:
I. 13, 24, 35, 46, 57 and II. 32, 43, ?, 65, 76
The pattern in both I and II is + 11
So, missing term = 43 + 11 = 54
S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. grjjk/grjjk/grjjk
S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. 879 = 8+7+9 = 24 -> 2+4 = 6
625 = 6+2+5 = 13 -> 1+3 = 4
586 = 5+8+6 = 19 -> 1+9 = 10
Similarly
785 = 7+8+5 = 20 -> 2+0 =2
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Except pascal, all are units of distance.
