- 8 5
- 5 2
- 8 2
- 5 5

**Answer: 4**

**Solution: **

In this simple subtraction with repetition series, each number is repeated, then 3 is subtracted to give the next number, which is then repeated, and so on.

**2. A rainy day occurs once in every 10 days. Half of the rainy days produce rainbows. What percent of all the days do not produce rainbow?**

- 95%
- 10%
- 50%
- 5%

**Answer: 1**

**Solution: **

Two rainy days occur in 20 days. So, rainbow will occur once in 20 days. Rest 19 days will have not rainbow. % of not producing rainbows = 19/ 20 * 100 = 95%

**3. If 5 spiders can catch five flies in five minutes. How many flies can hundred spiders catch in 100 minutes?**

- 2000

**Answer: 4**

**Solution: **

One spider catches one fly in 5 minutes. 100 spider catches 100 fly in 5 minutes. In 100 minutes 100 × 20 = 2000 flies will be caught.

**4**. DIRECTIONS for Questions 4and 7 Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. In a local pet store, seven puppies wait to be introduced to their new owners. The puppies, named Ashlen, Blakely, Custard, Daffy, Earl, Fala and Gabino, are all kept in two available pens. Pen 1 holds three puppies, and pen 2 holds four puppies. If Gabino is kept in pen 1, then Daffy is not kept in pen 2. If Daffy is not kept in pen 2, then Gabino is kept in pen 1. If Ashlen is kept in pen 2, then Blakely is not kept in pen 2. If Blakely is kept in pen 1, then Ashlen is not kept in pen 1. Which of the following groups of puppies could be in pen 2?

- Gabino, Daffy, Custard, Earl.
- Blakely, Gabino, Ashlen, Daffy
- Ashlen, Gabino, Earl, Custard
- Blakely, Custard, Earl, Fala.

**Answer: 3**

**Solution: **

Consider option A: If Gabino, Daffy, Custard and Earl are in pen 2, then Ashlen and Blakely will be in pen 1 which is not possible according to the last

condition given. Therefore Option 1 is not correct. Consider option B: According to condition 3 both Ashlen and Blakely cannot be in pen 2 together.

Therefore Option 2 is not correct. Consider option C: In the second condition it is given that if Daffy is not kept in pen 2 then Gabino is kept in pen 1.

Therefore Option 3 is not correct.

**5. If Earl shares a pen with Fala, then which of the following MUST be true?**

- Gabino is in pen 1 with Daffy.
- Custard is in pen 2.
- Blakely is in pen 2 and Fala is in pen 1.
- Earl is in pen 1.

**Answer: 2**

**Solution: **

If Earl shares a pen with Fala, then Earl and Fala can both be either in pen 1 or in pen 2, Now, if Earl and Fala both are in pen 1 then one of Ashlen

and Blakely have to be in pen 2 as they both cannot be together in one pen. Therefore Custard has to be in pen 2. If Earl and Fala both are

in pen 2 then also one of Ashlen and Blakely have to be in pen 2. Then Gabino and Daffy will be in pen 1 with one of Ashlen and Blakeley.

Therefore Custard will be in pen 2. Therefore In both the cases Custard will be in pen 2. Hence, option B

**6. If Earl and Fala are in different pens, then which of the following must NOT be true?**

- Gabino shares a pen with Ashlen.
- Earl is in a higher-numbered pen than Blakely.
- Blakely shares pen 2 with Earl and Daffy.
- Custard is in a higher-numbered pen than Fala.

**Answer: 4**

**Solution: **

If Earl and Fala both are in different pens then there are two cases possible Case (i): Earl is in pen 1 and Fala in pen 2.

Case (ii): Fala is in pen 1 and Earl is in pen 2. Case (i) Earl is in pen 1 and Fala is in pen 2. Gabino and Daffy have to be together

in one pen and they cannot be in pen 1 as one of Ashlen and Blakely have to be in pen 1 and pen 1 can holds 3 puppies.

Therefore Gabino and Daffy will be in pen 2, and Custard has to be in pen 1. Pen 1 will have Earl, Custard and one of Ashlen and Blakely.

Pen 2 will have Fala, Gabino, Daffy and one of Ashlen and Blakely. Custard has to be in pen 1 Custard cannot be in a higher-numbered pen than Fala.

Similarly in Case (ii) Fala will be in pen 1 but Custard will also be in pen 1. Custard cannot be in a higher-numbered pen than Fala.

Option 5 must not be true. Hence, option 5

**7**. DIRECTIONS for Questions 7 and 12: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. Five colleagues pooled their efforts during the office lunch-hour to solve the crossword in the daily paper. Colleagues: Mr. Bineet, Mr. Easwar, Ms. Elsie, Ms. Sheela, Ms. Titli. Answers: Burden, Barely, Baadshah, Rosebud. Silence. Numbers: 4 down, 8 across, 15 across, 15 down, 21 across. Order: First, second, third, fourth, fifth. 1. Titli produced the answer to 8 across, which had the same number of letters as the previous answer to be inserted, and one more than the subsequent answer which was produced by one of the men. 2. It was not Bineet who solved the clue to ‘Burden’, and Easwar did not solve 4 down. 3. The answers to 15 across and 15 down did not have the same number of letters. 4. ‘Silence’, which was not the third word to be inserted, was the answer to an across clue. 5. ‘Barely’ was the first word to be entered in the grid, but ‘Baadshah’ was not the second answer to be found. 6. Elsie’s word was longer than Bineet’s; Sheela was neither the first nor the last lo come up with an answer. 7. Fifth one to be worked out was an answer to an across clue. What was Sheela’s word ?

- Baadshah
- Silence
- Rosebud
- Barely

**Answer: 2**

**Solution: **

=>In condition (I) it is given that the answer that Titli produced had the same number of letters as the previous answer and one more than the

subsequent answer. The answer given by Titli can be Rosebud or Silence. =>It is given that Barely was the first word to be entered. The word entered

after the answer given by Titli will be Burden. The order of these three words can be: Rosebud, Silence and Burden or Silence, Rosebud and Burden.

It is also given that Baadshah is not the second word. Therefore Baadshah has to be the fifth word entered. The order of answers will be: Barely,

Rosebud, Silence, Burden and Baadshah. OR Barely, Silence, Rosebud, Burden and Baadshah. =>From condition 4 we get that Silence is not

the third word. The order of answers will be: Barely, Silence, Rosebud, Burden and Baadshah. i.e. Rosebud was the answer given by Titli.

Therefore The arrangement till now can be represented in the form of table as shown below: Order Answer Colleague Number First Barely

Second Silence Third Rosebud Titli 8 across Fourth Burden Fifth Baadshah One of the men gave the answer after the answer given by Titli.

And from condition 2 we get that it was not Bineet who gave the answer Burden. Therefore the answer ‘Burden’ was given by Mr. Easwar.

=>From conditions 4 and 7 we get that ‘Silence’ and the Fifth answer are answers to across clues. Sheela was neither the first nor the last to

come up with the answer. Sheela must have answered the second clue. =>From condition 6 we get that Elsie’s answer was longer than Bineet’s.

Elsie must have answered the fifth clue and Bineet must have answered the first clue. It is given that Easwer did not solve 4 down.

Order Answer Colleague Number First Barely Bineet 4 down Second Silence Sheela across Third Rosebud Titli 8 across Fourth Burden Easwar 15 down

Fifth Baadshah Elsie across Now the number of the second and fifth answer is not known, only it is known that they were answers to across clues.

**13**. DIRECTIONS for Questions 13 and 15: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below: A and B are two sets (e.g. A = mothers, B = women). The elements that could belong to both the sets (e.g. women who are mothers) is given by the set C = A.B. The elements which could belong to either A or B, or both is indicated by the set D = AOB. A set that does not contain any elements is known as a null set, represented by @(for example, if none of the women in the set B is a mother, then C = A.B. is a null set, or C = @. Let ‘V’ signify the set of all vertebrates; ‘M’ the set of all mammals; ‘D’ dogs; ‘F’ fish; ‘A’ Alsatian and ‘P’ a dog named Pluto.

If P . A = @ and P U A = D, then which of the following is true ?

- Pluto and Alsatian are dogs
- Pluto is an Alsatian
- Pluto is not an Alsatian
- D is a null set.

- using 2nd statement only
- using both 1st and 2nd statement
- using 1st or 2nd statement
- Cannot be answered even by using both the statement

**Answer: 5**

** **

**Solution: **

Anil’s age was a prime number in 1996 and 1998. So Anil’s age in these two yeas can be a pair of such numbers which are prime, and differ by 2.

We have many such pairs – (3, 5), (5, 7), (11, 13)….. And it is not possible to arrive at a unique answer.

**24. How many different triangles can be formed? Statement 1. There are 16 coplanar, straight lines in all. Statement 2. No two lines are parallel.**

- using 1st or 2nd statement
- Cannot be answered even by using both the statement

**Answer: 5**

**Solution: **

Although it is known that none of the lines are parallel to each other, there might be the case wherein all the lines have exactly one point of

intersection, or eight lines with one point and the other eight with another point of Intersection. Unless something about the relative arrangement

of these lines is known, one cannot arrive at definite answer.

- using 1st Statement only
- using 2nd statement only
- using both 1st and 2nd statement
- using 1st or 2nd statement

**Answer: 3**

**Solution: **

In the case of compound interest, the period of reckoning or calculation of CI is very important. This information is given in statement (b).

The annual CI rate is 10%, so the rate for 4 months is (4/12) 10 = (10/3) %. So the total CI after one year, in terms of X, may be written

as: CI = X [(1 + ((10/3)/100)]3, because in a year, there are 3 terms of 4 months. This interest is followed by a tax of 4% paid by him which

ultimately fetches Lakhiram Rs. 1500. This data us to find the value of X, so the answer is (3).

**27. A, B, C, D, E are five positive numbers. A + B < C + D, B + C < D + E, C + D < E + A. Is ‘A’ the greatest ? Statement 1: D + E < A + B. Statement 2: E < C.**

- using 1st Statement only
- using 2nd statement only
- using both 1st and 2nd statement
- using 1st or 2nd statement

**Answer: 3**

**Solution: **

A + B < C + D B + C < D + E C + D < E + A D + E < A + B E < C Adding, A + 2B < 2A + B i.e. B < A

**28. A sequence of numbers a1, a2….. is given by the rule an 2 = an+1. Do 3 appear in the sequence ? Statement 1: a1 = 2 Statement 2: a3 = 16**

- using 1st Statement only
- using 2nd statement only
- using both 1st and 2nd statement
- using 1st or 2nd statement

**Answer: 4**

**Solution**:

Put n = 1 in an2 = an+1 a12 = a2, a22 = a3, a32 = a4 etc From statement 1: a12 = a2 i.e. 22 = a2 or a2 = 4 Now, a22 = a3

i.e. 42 = a3 or a3 = 16, etc Thus, a1 = 2, a2 = 4, a3 = 16, etc

**29. The average of 5 quantities is 6. The average of 3 of them is 8. What is the average of the remaining two numbers?**

- 6.5
- 4
- 3
- 3.5

**Answer: 3**

**Solution: **

The average of 5 quantities is 6. Therefore, the sum of the 5 quantities is 5 * 6 = 30. The average of three of these 5 quantities is 8.

Therefore, the sum of these three quantities = 3 * 8 = 24 The sum of the remaining two quantities = 30 – 24 = 6. Average of

these two quantities = 6/2= 3.

**30. The function f(x) = |x – 2| + |2.5 – x| + |3.6 – x|, where x is a real number, attains a minimum at?**

- x = 2.3
- x = 2.5
- x = 2.7
- none of the above.

**Answer: 2**

**Solution: **

Case 1: If x < 2, then y = 2 – x + 2.5 – x + 3.6 – x = 8.1 – 3x. This will be least if x is highest i.e. just less than 2. In this case y will be just

more than 2.1 Case 2: If 2.
