Solutions:
S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Monica’s father’s only son – Monica’s brother.
So, Sahil is the son of Monica’s brother. Thus, Sahil’s mother is the wife of Monica’s brother i.e. Monica’s sister-in-law.
S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. In the given system of coding, a number x is coded as (10 – x).
Thus, 2 is coded as (10 – 2) i.e. 8, 3 as (10 – 3) i.e. 7 and 4 as (10 – 4) i.e. 6. So, 234 stands for 876.
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. The word formed by first even number place letters then odd number place letters.
So, ARKONAM ->ROAAKNM
S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. In all other pairs, the two numbers have 3 as the common factor.
S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. The series is aaaa/bbbb/cccc/dddd/cccc/bbbb/a.
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The series is ccacc/aabaa/bbcbb/cc.
S7. Ans.(c)
