**Question 1:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 29

b)Â 27

c)Â 30

d)Â 24

**1)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Along the rows, the second number is obtained by dividing the first number by 6 or dividing the third number by 4 as shown below

$\frac{150}{6}=25$ Â or Â Â $\frac{100}{4}=25$

$\frac{132}{6}=22$ Â or Â Â $\frac{88}{4}=22$

Similarly, the required number =Â $\frac{162}{6}=27$

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Instructions**

In the following questions, select the missing number from the given responses.

**Question 2:Â **

a)Â 64

b)Â 69

c)Â 65

d)Â 68

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

13 $\times$ 2 +Â 4 = 30

15 $\times$ 4 + 5 = 65

12 $\times$ 5 + 8 = 68

**Question 3:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses

a)Â 17

b)Â 1

c)Â 19

d)Â 7

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

From the table along the rows,

1 + 5 = 6

6 + 7 = 13

Third number is equal to first number and second number along the rows.

Similarly along the third row,

The missing number = 8 + 9 = 17

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

**Question 4:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses.

a)Â -6

b)Â 1

c)Â -1

d)Â 14

**4)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

From the table along the rows,

7 – 4 = 3

1 – 5 = -4

Difference between the first number and second number along the rows is equal to the third number.

Let the missing number = a

Similarly along the second row,

4 – 10 = a

$\Rightarrow$Â a = -6

$\therefore\ $The missing number = -6

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

**Question 5:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses

a)Â 2

b)Â 10

c)Â 7

d)Â 11

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

From the table along the columns,

2 – 2 = 0

7 – 9 = -2

Difference of first number and second number is equal to third number along the columns.

Let the missing number = a

Similarly along the second column,

4 – a = -6

$\Rightarrow$Â a = 10

$\therefore\ $The missing number = 10

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 6:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses

a)Â 10

b)Â 8

c)Â -6

d)Â 6

**6)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

Along the second column and third column,

6 – 3 = 3

6 – 1 = 5

Difference of first two numbers in a column is equal to the third number in the column.

Let the missing number = a

Similarly from the first column,

2 – 8 = a

$\Rightarrow$Â a = -6

$\therefore\ $The missing number = -6

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

**Question 7:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses

a)Â 21

b)Â 14

c)Â 6

d)Â 3

10 + 2 = 12

7 + 2 = 9

Sum of first number and second number is equal to third number along the columns.

Let the missing number = a

Similarly along the third column,

4 + 10 = a

$\Rightarrow$Â a = 14

$\therefore\ $The missing number = 14

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 8:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses.

a)Â 1

b)Â 9

c)Â -1

d)Â -9

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

From the table along the columns,

8 + 9 = 17

2 + 8 = 10

Sum of the top two numbers is equal to the bottom number in a column.

Let the required number = a

Similarly, 10 + a = 19

$\Rightarrow$Â a = 9

$\therefore\ $The required number = 9

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 9:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses:

a)Â 1

b)Â -1

c)Â 15

8 + 5 = 13

Sum of first number and second number is equal to third number along the column.

From the second column, the required number = 7 + 8 = 15

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

**Question 10:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses

a)Â 6

b)Â 14

c)Â 1

d)Â 17

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

From the table,

1 + 7 = 8

4 + 5 = 9

Along the rows, sum of first number and second number is equal to the third number.

Similarly, the required number = 4 + 10 = 14

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 11:Â **Select the missing number from the given responses

a)Â 14

b)Â 24

c)Â 30

d)Â 28

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

$\frac{299 +Â 100}{21} =Â \frac{399}{21}$ = 19

$\frac{296 + 100}{18} = \frac{396}{18}$ = 22

Similarly,

$\frac{348 + 100}{32} = \frac{448}{32}$ = 14

$\therefore$ The correct answer is option A.

**Question 13:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 4

b)Â 3

c)Â 5

d)Â 6

**13)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

$\frac{29 + 3}{8} = \frac{32}{8} =Â 4$

$\frac{71 + 6}{11} = \frac{77}{11} = 7$

$\frac{67 + 3}{14} = \frac{70}{14} = 5$

$\therefore$ The correct answer is option C.

**Question 14:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 27

b)Â 28

c)Â 29

d)Â 25

**14)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

The logic here is

$\left(10-3\right)\times2=14$

$\left(49-15\right)\times2=68$

Along the rows, twice the difference of first number and second number is equal to third number.

Similarly from the third row, the required number = $\left(33-19\right)\times2=28$

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 15:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 217

b)Â 203

c)Â 199

d)Â 195

**15)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

The logic here is

__Along first row__

11 + 2 = 13

13 + 4 = 17

__Along second row__

33 + 2 = 35

35 + 4 = 39

Along the rows, second number is the sum of first number and 2, third number is the sum of second number and 4.

Similarly,

__Along the third row__

189 + 2 = 191

191 + 4 = 195

$\therefore\ $The required number = 195

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 16:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 71

b)Â 77

c)Â 63

d)Â 59

**16)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

(7 $\times$ 3) – (7 + 3) = 21 – 10 = 11

(4 $\times$ 9) – (4 + 9) = 36 – 13 = 23

Similarly,**
(11 $\times$ 7) – (11 + 7) = 77 – 18 = 59
**$\therefore$ The correct answer is option D.

**Question 17:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 268

b)Â 166

c)Â 164

d)Â 162

**17)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

(28$\times 36)\div 4 = 1008/4 = 252$

(30$\times 32)\div 4 = 960/4 = 240$

Similarly,

(36$\times 18)\div 4 = 648/4 = 162$

$\therefore$ The correct answer is option D.

**Question 18:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 150

b)Â 145

c)Â 180

**18)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

(50 $\times 56) \div 8 = 2800/8 = 350$

(48 $\times 32) \div 8 = 1536/8 = 192$

Similarly,

(30 $\times 40) \div 8 = 1200/8 = 150$

$\therefore$ The correct answer is option A.

**Question 19:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark(?) in it.

a)Â 83

b)Â 71

c)Â 79

d)Â 81

**19)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

14 $\times$ 4 – 7 = 49, 49 $\times$ 4 = 196 – 7 = 189

17 $\times$ 4 – 7 = 61, 61 $\times$ 4 = 244 – 7 = 237

Similarly,

22 $\times$ 4 – 7 = 81, 81 $\times$ 4 = 324 – 7 = 317

$\therefore$ The correct answer is option D.

**Question 20:Â **Study the given pattern carefully and select the number that can replace the question mark (?) in it.

a)Â 14

b)Â 16

c)Â 10

d)Â 18

**20)Â AnswerÂ (B)**
