sq.root of 4 square plus 3 square =  5.

Qn.6. 3; From I it’s obvious that P is either a son or a daughter of Q. All we now need to know is the sex of P. This can be known from either III (a husband is a male) or IV (a brother is a male).
Qn.7. 5; From I we know that Atul reaches on 16th July. Now all we need to know is the day on 16th July. But if we know the day of any other date (25th July e.g.) we can find the day on 16th July. Alternatively, from III and II we can easily friend that Atul reached Bombay on a Thursday.
Qn.8. 5 From I, X > Y.
From II, Z > M
From III, M > N
From IV, X > N.
We can’t compare X and Z by this data.
Qn.9 . 4; There are two unknowns (Sudha’s age and her mother’s age). We see that the two unknowns can be found if we have two information. Hence picking any two information from I, II, III and IV will suffice.
Qn.10. 4; Can be answered by II alone. Or else, I and III give Some gardens are wardens as conclusion by rule I + A = I of syllogism

Qn 11 to 15: I. From (ii) and (iii) we conclude that Tuesday to Sunday we have 8 hours work with each of the 8 doctors visiting for 1 hour each while on a Saturday we have 4 hours work with each doctor visiting for ½ hour each.
II. Let us now find the order of the doctors. From (iv) it is obvious that Q is the first and U is the eight doctor. From (v) it is obvious that W is the first after lunch, i.e. fifth in the overall order while R is the sixth. Now from (vi) we know that P comes in the afternoon session. So P must be the seventh (third in the afternoon) because fifth, sixth and eight positions are already occupied by W, R and U, respectively. Now S comes in the same order as P in afternoon session. S must be the third in the morning session. That we have the order (Q, ?, S, ?, W, R, P, U)
(The ? marks are occupied by T or V)
11. 2. On a Sunday, R is second after lunch. So, his visit will be over at 4 PM.
12. 3. If lunch is reduced by 15 minutes, lunch hour finishes at 1.45 PM. 1st visit after lunch finishes after next 45 minutes i.e. at 2.30 pm, second after next 45 i.e. at 3.15 pm, third after next 45 i.e. at 4.00 pm and forth i.e. visit of U at 4.45 pm.
13. 3. Visits are of half an hour on Saturday. Since T is either the second or the fourth to make his visit, his visit will end at O.00 am + 2 X 30 minutes or 9.00 am + 4 X 30 minutes. i.e., 10 or 11AM.
14. 4
15. 3 . S may be preceded by either T or V.

Qn. 16. 4; The letters are A, I, T and the word formed by them is TAIL.
Qn. 20. 2. Just as a ball moves all over the cricket filed, similarly a shuttlecock moves all over the badminton court.
Qn.21. 3 Quick Method: 18th letter to the right of the 26th letter from right = 26-18 = 8th letter from right = C.
Qn.22. 2. Quick Method: Now, 8th letter from right when second half (only) is reversed = (16-8)+1 = 9th letter from right when the series is not reversed. This is D.
Qn.23. 3; Counting 8th letter from the right we don’t come across any number, so there won’t be any effect of dropping numbers from the sequence.
Qn.24. 4; F or U1F goes to middle in 5FH. So, J from IHJ goes to middle in FJK. 1from U1F goes to first in 1HJ. So F from 5FH goes to first in FJK. Finally, K is at a gap of 2 letters from J; so K goes to third in FJK.

For Qns.26 to 29: The given data, can be tabulated as given below:

F I --

Qn.31. 4; Conclusion II follows from conclusion I itself. Conclusion III follows directly from the second statement while IV follows directly from the first.
Qn.32. 4; Conclusion III follows directly from the second statement.
Qn.33. 1; Conclusion II follows. Conclusion IV follows directly from the second statement by converting it
.
Qn.34. 4; First change the order of the sentences to align them:
No books are boys (Type E)
All boys are girls (Type A)
E + A = O reversed, we have: ‘Some girls are not books’ as conclusion. Hence, IV follows. Further, conclusions I and II make a complementary pair; hence either of them must be true.
Qn.35. 4; Conclusion I follows directly from the first statement (on conversion).

Qn. 36. 2 C I G A R E T T E --- I & E, R & T

Qn.37. 4; The letters are S, E, N and T which may be made into the words SENT, NEST, NETS AND TENS.

Qn.38. 3; Soldiers usually live in barracks, but in a battlefield they live in tents. Here tent is called igloo.

Qn.39. 2; The composer scores music for a song. In other words, he directs the song and is therefore also called music director.

(100 + r) 125
132. (3). Let 95% of x = 4598

Then x = 4598 ´ 100 = 4840.

133. (4). Matriculates = 40 x = 2x
100 5

Remaining = x - 2x = 3x
1. 5

Graduates = 50 ´ 3x = 3x
100 5 10

\ 2x + 3x + 180 = x Ãž x - 7x 180 Ãž x = 600

\ Graduates = 3 ´ 600 = 180

134. (3). n(A) = 40, n(B) = 50, n(A B) = 10
n( A B) = n(A) + n(B) - n(A Ã‡ B) = (40 + 50 - 10) = 80
n(not A and not B) = n(AC Ã‡ BC) = n(A Ãˆ B)C = 100 – n (A Ãˆ B) = (100 – 80) = 20

135. (3). S.P. = Rs.22600, gain = 13%.

C.P. = 100 ´ 22600 = 20000
113

\ Gain = Rs.(22600 – 20000) = Rs.2600

136. (3). Suppose he purchased 24 locks (L.C.M. of 8 and 12)

C.P. = 34 ´ 24 = 102, S.P. = 57 ´ 24 = 114
8 12

To gain Rs.12, locks purchased = 24

To gain Rs.900, locks purchased = 24 ´ 900 = 1800

137. (3). Let C.P. be Rs.x. Then,
115 x = 69 x 125 Ãž x = 75

138. (2). Let C.P. be Rs.x. Then,
(x – 895) = (955 – x) Ãž x = 925
\ Loss = Gain = (925 – 895) = 30

139. (3). Suppose they cross after x hours
Distance covered in Y in (x – 1) hours = distance covered by X in x hours
70 (x – 1) = 50 x Ãž x = 3 ½

140. (2). x + x + x = 47 Ãž 20x + 15x + 12x = 47 Ãž x = 1
3 4 5 60

\ Total distance = ( 1 + 1 + 1) km = 3km
141. (1). Let the distance between A and B be x km

Speed = x = 4x km/hr
(45/60) 3

New speed 4x - 5 = 4x - 15 km/hr
3 3

\ 48 ´ (4x - 15) = x Ãž 16x – 60 = 15x Ãž x = 60
60 3

142. (4). 1500 m/min. = 1500 m/sec. = 25 m/sec
60
90 km/hr = 90 ´ 5 m/sec = 25m/sec.
18
So, all the given speeds are equal.

147. Speed of the train relative to man = [ 125 / 10 ] m/ sec
= [ 25 / 2] m / sec

[ 25 / 2 x 18 / 5 ] = 45 kmph.

148. Speed of the train relative to man = [ 110 / 6 ] m / sec

= [ 110 / 6 x 18 / 5 ] kmph = 66 kmph

Let the speed of the train be x kmph

Then relative speed = ( x + 6 ) kmph

X + 6 = 66 or x = 60 kmph.

150. Let the speed of the second train be x kmph

Relative speed = ( x + 50 ) kmph

= [ ( x + 50 ) x 5 / 18 ] m / sec

[ 250 + 5 x / 18 ] m / sec

Distance covered = (108 + 112) = 220m

220 / (250 + 5x/18) = 6

250 + 5x = 660 x = 82 kmph.

ENGLISH

181. 4; Substitute ‘their’ by ‘its’ because ‘nation’ is being used as singular
182. 4; Replace ‘of’ by ‘to’
183. 2; ‘Rejecting’ should be replaced by infinitive ‘reject’ to keep it in tune with (1)
184. 1; Particular times are being talked about – the ones which lie ahead. So, (1) should be ‘In the times ahead’.
185. 3; ‘Socio-Historic’ should be replaced by ‘socio-historical’
186. 2; ‘Something’ should be replaced by ‘anything’. Note that it is the defenders who are talking about their faults. In the worst case, they might have to yield and then their line would be. “If at all we are at fault” or “If we can be faulted for anything”.
187. 1; substitute ‘were’ with ‘was’.
