Word –Â NURSING

There are 3 pairs of lettersÂ which have as many as letters between them in the Alphabet.

= (U,S) , (R,S) , (I,G)

=> Ans – (B)

The first three letters of the word are reversed. Thus PENCIL becomes NEPCIL.

Now add 4 to odd-positioned letter and subtract 2 from even-positioned ones.

Similarly, BROKEN becomes ORBKEN, then :

=> Ans – (E)

Series :Â DGK GKP ? PVC

The pattern followed in each letter of the terms isÂ :

1st letter : D (+3 letters) = GÂ (+4 letters) =Â KÂ (+5 letters) =Â P

2nd letter : GÂ (+4 letters) =Â KÂ (+5 letters) =Â PÂ (+6 letters) =Â V

3rd letterÂ : KÂ (+5 letters) =Â PÂ (+6 letters) =Â VÂ (+7 letters) =Â C

Thus, missing term =Â KPV

=> Ans – (B)

4th to the left of 13th from right.

= (13 + 4) = 17th from right = 10th from left = J

Now, in the changed sequence, GHIJKL becomes LKJIHG. Thus I takes the place of J.

=> Ans – (C)

3rd letter to the right of 18th letter from left.

= (18 + 3) = 21st letter from left = U

In the changed sequence, TUVWXYZ changes to ABCDEFG, hence B comes in place of U.

=> Ans – (C)

SeriesÂ :Â B U B D C E D B D E U B A D C B E A C D A E B A U A C D B C A C

20th from left end = D

8th to the left of ‘D’ = B

=> Ans – (D)

SeriesÂ :Â B U B D C E D B D E U B A D C B E A C D A E B A U A C D B C A C

1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th from left end = B,U,C,E

Only 1 meaningful word can be formed = Cube

=> Ans – (B)

Consonants which areÂ immediately preceded by a vowel and also immediately followed by a consonant

Thus, we need to findÂ : (vowel) , (consonant) , (consonant)

=Â B U B D C E D B D E U B A D C B E A C D A E B A U A C D B C A C

Thus, there are 5 such consonants.

=> Ans – (E)

SeriesÂ : B U B D C E D B D E U B A D C B E A C D A E B A U A C D B C A C

If all A’s are dropped, the new seriesÂ :

= B U B D C E D B D E U B D C B E C D E B U C D B C C

11th from right end = ‘E’

=> Ans – (A)

C U A B D B C E ‘D’ E ‘D’ U A ‘B’ U A C D E ‘D’ A D B C A B C E B’ A B

As shown in the above series, the consonants within ‘ ‘ are the ones that are preceded by a vowel and succeeded by a vowel. There are 5 such instances in total. Hence, option C is the right answer.

The alphabets at 2nd, 5th and 8th positions in the above arrangement respectively are : U, D, E

Meaningful word(s) formed from the combination of these 3 = ‘due’

Thus, only 1 meaningful word can be formed.

We need to find a vowel which is immediately followed by another vowel.

=> (vowel) (vowel)

There are 3 such vowels, each of which are ‘UA’

18th alphabet from the right end = B [UA B UA]

7th to the right of B = A

Thus, Ans- (E)
