Answers:
1. b;
2. c;

3.d;      5     4     3     2     7     6     1     8
                          ↓                   ↓            ↓
            1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8
Hence, there are three numbers.
4. a;     X is the 20th from the back.
The position of W from the back is (20 – 5 =) 15th. Hence the position of W from the front is (34 – 15 + 1) = 20th
5. c;     Except c) all are synonyms.
(6 - 10)
6. d                  7. d                  8. c                  9. a                  10. a
11. e;   There is no negative statement. Thus the possibility in I exists. Hence conclusion I follows. All caps are pencils (A) → conversion → Some pencils are caps (I). Hence conclusion I follows.
12. b;   No bag is a glass (E) + Some glasses are not cups (O) = E + O = No conclusion. Hence conclusion I does not follow.
Again, No bag is a glass (E) → conversion → No glass is a bag (E). Hence conclusion II follows.
13. e;   Some flowers are red (I) + No red is a tree (E) = I + E = O = Some flowers are not trees. Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, No red is a tree (E) → conversion → No tree is red (E). Hence conclusion II follow as an implication of No tree is red.
14. e;   All boxes are copies (A) + No copy is a book (E) = A + E = E = No box is a book. Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, All boxes are copies (A) → conversion → Some copies are boxes (I). Hence conclusion II follows.
15. d;   No cloth is a cover (E) + No cover is a wrap = E + E = No conclusion. Hence neither conclusion I nor II follows.
16. e;   43, 93, 93, 43, 43
            Hence there are five 3’s which are preceded by a perfect square.
17. b;   New arrangement
            1 5 7 5 3 9 3 9 3 9 3 5 5 5 3 7 1 3 5
            Thirteenth from the left end is 5.
18. a;   6 4 2
19. b;   Seventh to the left of the twenty fifth from the left = (25 – 7 =) 18th from the left, i.e. 3.
20. c;   3   2   7   6   1   4
21. a;   Given statement:
            Hence only conclusion I is true.
22. b;   Given statement:
            Hence only conclusion II is true.
23. a;   Given statements:
            Hence only conclusion I is true.
24. d;  
            Hence neither conclusion I nor II is true.
25. e;  
            Hence both conclusions I and II are true.
26. e;   From I and II.
           
            F is on the immediate left of B.
27. d;   From I. According to Poonam’s mother, possible dates are 23, 24, 25.
            From II. According to her father, the possible dates are 22, 23, 24
Hence Poonam was born either on 23rd or 24th of September. Hence neither conclusion I nor II is sufficient to answer the question.
28. a;   From I.
           
            Thus, B is husband of C. Hence only I is sufficient to answer the question.
29. e;   From I. _ < _ < _ < J < N
                         K > M, L
From II. M _ _ _
From I and II. L < M < K < J < N
30. d;   From I and II.

            We can’t find how many brothers Y has.
