X$\leq$Y means X is daughter of Y. Y$\bigstar$Z means Y is mother of Z which means X and Z are siblings. Also, W is son of X which means Z is uncle/aunt of W and W is nephew of Z. Hence, correct option is A. 2) Answer (A) S is the mother of D. K is the brother of D. K is the only son of M. => M is husband of S and D is their daughter. M is the son of U. U is the husband of T. T is the mother of Y. => Gender of Y is unknown. ‘=’ represents married couple and ‘-‘ represents siblings. If D is married to X, then X is son-in-law of M. => Ans – (A) 3) Answer (D) From the intersection of the first two information, we can conclude that “nu” and “gi” will either “Risk” or “very”. From the intersection of the first and third information, we can conclude that “ta” will mean “associated”. From the intersection of first and fourth information, “nu” will mean “risk” and hence, “gi” will mean “Very” “ro” will be “large” and “fu” means also Hence, answer will be D 4) Answer (C) By observing the coding of ROSE and FIRST we get that, R= # O= 4 S= 3 E=$
T= 7

Hence, we can code STORE as 374#$. Option C is correct answer. 5) Answer (D) Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph are : where the numbers in brackets is the distance between the two points. Clearly, J, P and X lie on a straight line. Thus, Ans – (D) 6) Answer (D) Town R is to the South of town D. Town K is to the East of town R, => Town K is towards south-east of town D. => Ans – (D) 7) Answer (C) The pattern here followed is that the last word of the previous code becomes the first word for the next batch and the first and the second words shifted to the second and the third positions respectively. Again the seventh and the sixth words occupy the fourth and fifth positions respectively and then the third, the fourth and the fifth words of the previous code are written in the same order in the pass-code for the next batch. To summarize, if we use numbers in place of the words, the arrangement will be : Pass code for Batch I : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Pass code for Batch II : 8 1 2 7 6 3 4 5 Pass code for Batch III : 5 8 1 4 3 2 7 6 Pass code for Batch IV : 6 5 8 7 2 1 4 3 Pass code for Batch V : 3 6 5 4 1 8 7 2 Pass code for Batch VI : 2 3 6 7 8 5 4 1 =>Thus, we can write any required step from the given pass codes directly. Pass code for Batch III : night succeed day and hard work to for = 5 8 1 4 3 2 7 6 Pass code for Batch VI : 2 3 6 7 8 5 4 1 => work hard for to succeed night and day Ans – (C) 8) Answer (A) 9) Answer (A) From conditions I & II, there is only one common word ‘red’ – ew From II & IV, there are two common words ‘gate’ & ‘red’ either coded as ‘op’ or ‘ew’ Since, code for red is known, then code for ‘gate’ – op The word crash is not used in the above conditions, thus we need to find a solution with a code that is not used above and op Ans – (A) 10) Answer (A) The common words in first two statements are ‘economy‘ and ‘very‘ coded as = ‘jo’ or ‘pa’ The common word in first and third statements is ‘fast‘ coded as = ‘va’ => Only word left in first statement is ‘receiving‘ coded as = ‘ni’ The common word in second and last statements is ‘of‘ coded as = ‘su’ => Only word left in second statement is ‘essence‘ coded as = ‘lo’ The common words in last two statements are ‘in‘ and ‘banks‘ coded as = ‘bt’ or ‘ks’ => Only word left in third statement is ‘money‘ coded as = ‘gy’ Similarly, only word left in last statement is ‘industry‘ coded as = ‘dm’ Thus, the code for ‘essence’ = lo => Ans – (A) 11) Answer (E) G is fifth to the left of C and F is fifth to the right of A. Hence, there are two configurations possible: G A _ _ _ C F and A G _ _ _ F C As F is not at either end, only the second configuration is possible. As E is second to the left of D, the placement is as follows A G E B D F C Hence, D is the reporter. The Doctor is to the left of the Engineer and the Painter is 4th to the right of the Engineer. Hence, two configurations are possible: Doctor – Eng – _ _ Rep – Painter – _ or _ – Doc – Eng – _ Rep – Pain – _ As the Lawyer and Teacher are next to each other, the second configuration is impossible. Hence, the configuration is Doc – Eng – Tea – Law – Rep – Pain – Act A – G – E – B – D – F – C Hence, D is immediate left of Painter 12) Answer (C) Lets number the boxes from 1 to 12 as shown below to discuss the positions of the 12 people. S sits third to the right of Q and either of them sits at an extreme end. This is possible in 2 ways. Case 1) Sits in 1 and Q in 4 Case 2) S sits in 3 and Q in 6 In Case 1, E sits in box 8. Now, there are 2 people sit between B and F and neither B nor F sit at the extreme end. That is not a possibility. So, we proceed with case 2. So, we can confirm that S sits in 3, Q sits in 6 and E sits in 10. Positions of B and F create 2 cases. Case 3) B sits in 8 and F sits in 11 Case 4) B sits in 11 and F sits in 8 Case 3 is impossible because the immediate neighbor of B faces the person who sits third to the left of P. Even if P is sitting in 1, The immediate neighbor of B has to face 4. That is only possible if B is in 11 and P is in 1 or 3. Since S is already in 3, P should be in 1. C sits second to the left of A. So, C is in 7 and A is in 9. D is therefore in 12. R and T are immediate neighbors of each other. So, they should be in 4 and 5. T doesn’t face the immediate neighbor of D. So, T is in 4 and R is in 5. So, 2 is V. The diagram therefore is as shown below: That answers the question. 13) Answer (D) I : 65 11 12 Odd number ’65’ is followed by another odd number ’11’, rule (iv) is applied =$65+(11)^2=186$Thus, it becomes : 186 12 Even number ‘186’ is followed by another even number ’12’, thus according to rule (i) =$186+12=198$II : 15 3 11 Odd number ’15’ is followed by another odd number ‘3’, rule (iv) is applied =$15+(3)^2=24$Thus, it becomes : 24 11 Now, even number ’24’ is followed by prime number ’11’, rule (ii) is applied =$24\times11=264\therefore$Sum of the resultants of the two rows =$198+264=462\$

=> Ans – (D)

Series : CD FG JK ? UV

The pattern followed in each letter of the terms is :

1st letter : C (+3 letters) = F (+4 letters) = J (+5 letters) = O (+6 letters) = U

2nd letter : D (+3 letters) = G (+4 letters) = K (+5 letters) = P (+6 letters) = V

Thus, missing term = OP

=> Ans – (B)
