A. 44 

B. 45 
C. 46 
D. 47

Answer: Option C


The pattern is +5, +7, +9, +11 … 
Missing number = 33 + 13 = 46.

2. Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions: 

A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement:
Input: 39 121 48 18 76 112 14 45 63 96
Step I: 14 39 121 48 18 76 112 45 63 96
Step II: 14 39 48 18 76 112 45 63 96 121
Step III: 14 18 39 48 76 112 45 63 96 121
Step IV: 14 18 39 48 76 45 63 96 112 121
Step V: 14 18 39 45 48 76 63 96 112 121
Step VI: 14 18 39 45 48 63 76 96 112 121
This is the final arrangement and step VI is the last step for this input.

If the second step for an input is as given below, what will be the fifth step for the same input?

Step II: 22 49 32 88 69 132 101 185

A. 22 32 49 88 69 101 132 185 

B. 22 32 69 49 88 101 132 185 
C. 22 32 49 69 101 88 132 185 
D. 22 32 49 88 69 132 101 185 
E. None of these

Answer: Option E


Step I: The smallest number becomes first and the remaining numbers shift one position rightward.
Step II: The largest number among given numbers becomes last and the remaining numbers shift one position leftward.
The steps are repeated alternately till all the numbers get arranged in ascending order and that will be that last step for that particular input.
Step II: 22 49 32 88 69 132 101 185
Step III: 22 32 49 88 69 132 101 185
Step IV: 22 32 49 88 69 101 132 185
Step V: 22 32 49 69 88 101 132 185
Here, step III will be the same as step I and in step IV. As the largest number is already at the end, second largest will come in just one position ahead of the largest.

(B)  There are times when the enforcement of norms lead to conflicts.

A. if statement (A) is the cause and statement (B) is its effect. 

B. if statement (B) is the cause and statement (A) is its effect. 
C. if both the statements (A) and (B) are independent causes. 
D. if both the statements (A) and (B) are effects of independent causes. 
E. if both the statements are effect of some common causes.

Answer: Option E


The statements are referring to different aspects of norms and guidelines. (A) refers to uses, while (B) refers to the negative side of it. Hence, they are effects of a common cause.

4. Statement:

The government has decided to pay compensation to the tune of Rs. 1 lakh to the family members of those who are killed in railway accidents.
I. The government has enough funds to meet the expense due to compensation.
II. There may be reduction in incidents of railway accidents in near future.

A. If only assumption I is implicit 

B. If only assumption II is implicit 
C. If either I or II is implicit 
D. If neither I nor II is implicit

Answer: Option A


The decision taken by the government implies that the government must be assuming I. Note that no organisation/government/person takes decision to compensate the victim unless it assumes that it has adequate find to satisfy the expenses. II can’t be correlated. Hence, II is not implicit.

5. The Supreme Court in its land mark judgement gave women the right to terminate their pregnancy as a constitutional right.

Which of the following, if true, can go against the Supreme Court’s judgement?

A. In several other countries abortion is illegal. 

B. An unborn child should be treated as a person and every person has a fundamental right to live. 
C. The elected representatives of one of the states rejected the proposal to make abortion illegal in a 30-70 vote. 
D. If a foetus can be treated as a person, an enbryo from which the foetus is formed should also be treated as a person.

Answer: Option B


Choice (a) does not state that every other country considers abortion as illegal. There is a possibility that there are some countries which treat abortion legal. Hence (a) does not go against the judgement. 
If choice (b) is true, the judgement of the court goes against the fundamental rights. This makes the court’s judgement untenable. Hence (b) goes against the supreme court judgement.
According to choice (c), the elected representatives are in favour of making abortion legal.
Choice (d) does not state anything in favour or against the judgement. It is out of context.
Hence, choice (b) goes against the judgement.

6. Statement:

The police has served a notice to the residents with immediate effect to be careful of the antisocial elements wandering in their areas.
I. The local residents may pay heed to this notice.
II. The antisocial elements may ply to other areas.

A. If only assumption I is implicit 

B. If only assumption II is implicit
C. If either I or II is implicit 
D. If neither I nor II is implicit

Answer: Option A


The notice has been aimed at reducing criminal activities. How can the criminal activities be reduced without people’s participation? Hence, the police must be assuming I. But we are not sure about II. Hence, II is not implicit.

7. Flower is related to petal in the same way as a book is related to?

A. Rage 

B. Content 
C. Author 
D. Catalogue

Answer: Option A


A number of petals constitute a flower. Similarly, number of pages constitute a book.

Event (B): The bowlers of the Indian cricket team performed excellently.

A. If ‘A’ is the effect and ‘B’ is its immediate and principle cause. 

B. If ‘B’ is the effect and ‘A’ is its immediate and principle cause. 
C. If ‘A’ is the effect but ‘B’ is not its immediate and principle cause. 
D. If ‘B’ is the effect but ‘A’ is not its immediate and principle cause.

Answer: Option C


Here both the events are related events and chronologically (B) occurs before (A). But the excellent performance of the bowler is not the immediate and principle cause for the Indian victory. There may be other players (Batsman and fielders) who also need to play well for the Indian victory.

9. Statement:

Out of every hundred people who are blind, twenty people go blind because of the deficiency of Vitamin ‘A’. But this fact is not known to illiterates and it is neglected by the educated.

D. All follow

Answer: Option A


As people can be educated regarding vitamins.
