**11. c15 Look carefully at the sequence of symbols to find the pattern. Select correct pattern (Image)**

A.1 B.2 C.3 D.4

Answer: A

Explanation:

Look carefully at the number of dots in each domino. The first segment goes from five to three to one. The second segment goes from one to three

to five. The third segment repeats the first segment

**12. c14 Look carefully at the sequence of symbols to find the pattern. Select correct pattern (Image)**

A.1 B.2 C.3 D.4

Answer: D

Explanation:

This sequence concerns the number of sides on each figure. In the first segment, the three figures have one side, and then two sides, and then three

sides. In the second segment, the number of sides increases and then decreases. In the third segment, the number of sides continues to decrease.

**13. Look carefully at the sequence of symbols to find the pattern (Image)**

A.1 B.2 C.3 D.4

Answer: A

Explanation:

Look at each segment. You will notice that in each, the figure on the right and the figure on the left are the same; the figure in between is different.

To continue this pattern in the last segment, the diamond on the left will be repeated on the right.

**14. Look carefully at the sequence of symbols to find the pattern. Select correct patternc12 (Image)**

A.1 B.2 C.3 D.4

Answer: B

Explanation:

Notice that in each segment, the figures are all the same shape, but the one in the middle is larger than the two on either side. Also, notice that one

of the figures is shaded and that this shading alternates first right and then left. To continue this pattern in the third segment, you will look for a

square. Choice b is correct because this choice will put the large square between the two smaller squares, with the shading on the right.

**15. c11 Look carefully at the sequence of symbols to find the pattern. Select correct pattern (Image)**

A.1 B.2 C.3 D.4

Answer: C

Explanation:

This is an alternating series. In the first segment, the letter "E" faces right, then down, then right. In the second segment, the letters all face down.

To follow this pattern, in the fourth segment, the letters must all face up

**16. Read the following information and answer the questions given below it:**

**(1)Seven students P, Q, R, S, T, U and V take a series of tests.**

(2)No two students get similar marks.

(3)V always scores more than P.

(4)P always scores more than Q.

(5)Each time either R scores the highest and t gets the least or alternatively S scores the highest and U or Q scores the least.

If S is ranked sixth and Q is ranked fifth, which of the following can be true?

(2)No two students get similar marks.

(3)V always scores more than P.

(4)P always scores more than Q.

(5)Each time either R scores the highest and t gets the least or alternatively S scores the highest and U or Q scores the least.

If S is ranked sixth and Q is ranked fifth, which of the following can be true?

A.V is ranked first or fourth B.R is ranked second or third C.P is ranked second or fifth D.U is ranked third or fourth

Answer: D

Explanation:

V > P, P > Q i,e V > P > Q. If R scores the highest, we have R > ---------- > T. If S scores the highest, we have S > ----------- > Q or S > ---------- > U. If S is ranked

sixth and Q is ranked fifth,we have _ > _ > _ > _ > Q > S > _ In this case, R will ran the highest and thus T will rank the least. we have R > _ > _ > _ > Q > S > T Also,

the order V > P > Q will be maintained i,e V and P will have second, third or fourth places. So, statements (a), (b), (c), (e) cannot follow.

Thus (d) is the answer. T is ranked fourth or fifth.

**17. If R gets more, V should be ranked not lower than:**

A.second B.third C.fourth D.fifth

Answer: C

Explanation:

If R ranks most, T ranks lowestand occupies seventh place. Since V always ranks above P and Q so in the maximum, P and Q will occupy fifth and

sixth places. Thus, V will not rank lower than fourth

**18. If R is ranked second and Q is ranked fifth, which of the following must be true?**

A.S is ranked third B.T is ranked sixth C.P is ranked sixth D.V is ranked fourth

Answer: B

Explanation:

If R is ranked second, S will rank first and Q and U lowest. But Q ranks fifth. So, U ranks lowest. Also, the order V > P > Q will be followed.

So, the arrangement will be S > R > V > P > Q > _ U. Thus , the sixth place will be occupied by T.

**19. If S is ranked second, which of the following can be true?**

A.U gets more than V B.V gets more than S C.P gets more than R D.P gets more than V

Answer: A

Explanation:

If S ranks second, R ranks first and Tranks lowest. The order V > P > Q will be followed. So, the arrangement will be R > S > _ > _ > _ > _ > T.

Clearly, statements (b), (c), (d) and (e) cannot follow. so the answer is(a).

**20. If V is ranked fifth, which of the following must be true?**

A.S scores the highest B.R is ranked second C.T is ranked third D.Q is ranked fourth

Answer: A

Explanation:

If V ranks fifth, P and Q coming before it will occupy sixth and seventh places respectively i,e Q ranks least.So,S will score the highest.

**21. This problem consists of a question and two statements, labeled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to decide whether the data given in the statements are sufficient for answering the question, using only the data given in the statements and your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts (such as the number of days in July or the meaning of counterclockwise).**

**26. If C E J Q is coded asX V Q J , then B D I P will be coded as ..............**

A.KRYW B.CGMP C.NOPS D.YWRK

Answer: D

Explanation:

The first 13 letters of the alphabet are coded by the 13 letters of the alphabet in reverse, I.e.= A B C D E F G H I J K L M (first 13 letters)=Z Y X W V U T S S R Q P O N(13 in reverse)

It is obvious from the above coding scheme that: B=Y,D=W and K=P.... Therefore BDIP will be coded as YWRK

**27. Which code should be replaced in the question mark? MILD:NKOH :: GATE : ?**

A.IBVJ B.HCWI C.KDXK D.ICWA

Answer: B

Explanation:

Here, letters are coded by skipping letters in alphabetical order, I.e.., M=N (no skipping) I = (j) K (letters in the bracket are one\'s skipped)L =

(mn) OD = (efg) H The skipping pattern is -1, -2 and -3 Therefore , G A T E will be coded as H C W I

**28. If SPTFA stand for BLADE, how will you code BALE?**

A.RUQC B.SPAT C.STAP D.STPA

Answer: D

Explanation:

BLADE has been coded as SPTFA. You will see that all letters in the word BALE, which have to be coded are also there in the word BLADE.

Hence all that need to be done is to choose the relevant code letters from the code word SPTFA. Thus B becomes S, A becomes T, L becomes P,

and E becomes A. Therefore BALE will be coded as STPA.

**29. If MAILED is coded as NBJMFE, how will you code the word ACTED?**

A.BDUGF B.CDUFE C.BDVFF D.BDUFE

Answer: D

Explanation:

Here each letter stands for the next letter in the sequence. Therefore ACTED becomes BDUFE.
