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.(c)
Sol. Except T, all are vowels.
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Putting A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, ….. X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26, we have:
ZEBRA → Z/E/B/R/A → 26/5/2/18/1 → 2652181
COBRA → C/O/B/R/A → 3/15/2/18/1 → 3152181
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, ……, X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26
Then, M = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4;
O = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6;
B = 2; I = 9;
L = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
T = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2;
Y = 25 = 2 + 5 = 7
So, MOBILITY = 46293927.
Similarly, X = 24 = 2 + 4 = 6; N = 14 = 1 + 4 = 5.
So, EXAMINATION = 56149512965
S8.Ans.(c)
