Solutions:
S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Using the correct symbols, we have:
Given expression =[{(5 – 10) + (16 × 4)} ÷ (15 + 9)] × 0 = 0
S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. All other groups consist of alternate letters.
S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Clearly, the order of letters in the word is reversed and then each letter is replaced by the numeral denoting its position in the English alphabet.
RED -> DER -> 4/5/18 -> 4518
GREEN -> NEERG -> 14/5/5/18/7 -> 1455187
S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. One drinks ‘water’ when one is thirsty. Since ‘water’ is called ‘air’ on the other planet, so one would drink ‘air’ when one is thirsty there.
S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Lady’s son’s father is lady’s husband. So, the lady’s husband is the son-in-law of Shruti’s mother i.e. the lady is the daughter of Shruti’s mother. Thus, Shruti is the lady’s sister. Hence, the answer is (b).
S6. Ans.(d)
S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Y = 25 implies that the letters have been numbered as per their position in the English alphabet.
Thus, A = 1, B = 2, ……, Z = 26.
Clearly, MEET = M + E + E + T = 13 + 5 + 5 + 20 = 43.
∴ HALT = H + A + L + T = 8 + 1 + 12 + 20 = 41.
S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. The words are HE, ART and LESS.
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Using the correct symbols, we have:
Given expression = 30 ÷ 2 + 3 × 6 – 5 = 15 + 18 – 5 = 28.
S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. 12 × 3 = 36 + 4 = 40
Similarly, 15 × 3 = 45 + 4 = 49
