15+6=21

21+10=31

31+14=45

45+18=63

1. 4

39+9=48

48+18=66

66+27=93

-0*.5, -1*.5, -2*.5, -3*.5

1. 3

×3+3, ×3-4, ×3+5, ×3-6

1. 1

Let the two numbers be 6x and 7x.

From statement A, we get

LCM = 42x = 462

x = 11

Two numbers are 66 and 77.

1. 1

From statement A, we get

t = 4

A = 2P

SI = (2P – P) = P

Rate = (SI * 100)/(P * T)

= (100 * P)/(P * 4)

= 25%

1. 5

Data together in both the statements are not sufficient to ancwer the questions.

1. 4

Let boat’s rate upstream be x and boat’s rate downstream by y.

Distance covered in 640 min =  = Disance covered in 280 min

x * 640 = y * 280

16x =  7y

Required Ratio = (y + x)/2 : (y – x)/2

= (y + 7/16y) : (y – 7/16y) = 23 : 9

1. 1

Distance = 48 * 6 = 288km

Speed of Himanshu = 288/4 = 72 km/hr

Time taken by Disha after increasing average speed

= 288/(48 + 8) = 5 1/7 hr

Time taken by Himanshu after increasing average speed

= 288/(72 + 4) = 3 15/19 hr

Required difference = 36/7 – 72/19

(684 – 504)/133 = 180/133 hr = 1 47/133 hr

1. 5

Let total student be 100

Interested in Football = 8/100 * 100 = 8

Interested in cricket = 100 * 4/5 = 80

Interested in basketball = 100 * 10/100 = 10

Remaining = 100 – (8 + 80 + 10) = 2 students

Total students = 100/2 * 20 = 1000

Directions: Study the given information carefully to answer the given questions:
Seven participants Amit, Arjun, Deepak, Hari, Gaurav, Nilesh and Pawan from seven different countries, viz. Algeria, Australia, Belize, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cuba and Fiji, but not necessary in the same order, participate in a dance competition. All of them perform seven different dance style, viz Chhau, Bush, Brukdown, Samba, Horo, Rumba and Gavotte. The one who perform Brukdown does not belong to Bulgaria. Arjun is from Belize and does not perform Samba. The one who is from Brazil performs Chhau. The one who is from Australia performs neither Samba nor Horo. Amit is from Fiji. Gaurav is from Algeria and perform Rumba dance. Deepak performs Gavotte but he is neither from Cuba nor from Bulgaria. Hari perform Bush and Pawan performs Brukdown

Q6. Who performs Samba?
1) Nilesh               2) Pawan               3) Gaurav               4) Amit               5) Deepak

Q7. Which of the following combination is true?
1.Algeria – Bush              2. Bulgaria – Horo             3. Cuba – Brukdown            4. Cuba – Rumba               5. Other than given options

Q8. Arjun performs which of the following dance?
1) Samba                 2) Chhau            3) Horo              4) Rumba            5) Gavotte

Q9. Who is from Australia?
1) Nilesh                2) Deepak            3) Amit             4) Pawan             5) Hari

Q10. Nilesh is from which country?
1) Algeria                 2) Belize               3) Fiji               4) Brazil                5) Cannot be determined

1. 5;

From (i) mystery of better life – 53 97 79 21

From (ii) life is a mystery – 24 27 79 53

From (iii) she is playing better – 24 21 12 22

From (i) and (ii) life mystery – 79 53

From (ii) and (iii) is – 24

But, we cannot find the code for ‘life’ from combination

of all three.

1. 5;

111 – 21 ÷ 7 × 2 + 4 – 127 = ?

By changing the symbols, we get,

111 × 21 + 7 ÷ 2 – 4 × 127

= 111 × 21 + 7/2 – 4 × 127

= 2331 + 7/2 – 508 = (4669 – 1016)/2 = 3653/2

1. 4;

B O D Y G U A R D

1. 5; From I. Berth is father of Adil

Berth > Berth’s wife …… (i)

Frank > Donna > Erik …..(ii)

Combining (i), (ii) and (iii); we get

Berth > Chandani > Frank > Donna > Erik

Clearly Chandni is Adil’s mother and Berth’s wife.

But Adil’s score is not mentioned. Hence I is not

sufficient alone.

From II. Nephew of Erik has lowest score.

From I and II together

Berth > Chandani > Frank > Donna > Erik > Adil

Bertha is the winner.

Hence, both I and II are required to answer.
