**5) Answer (A)**

Income is considered Profit; Similarly, Expenditure is considered Loss.

**6) Answer (E)**

A lives on 3rd floor.

E lives on a floor above G whereas G lives on a floor above I.

Thus, E lives on 3rd floor, G lives on 2nd floor and I lives on 1st floor.

C and B live on the same floor

Already 2 people live on 3rd floor. Thus, B and C either live on 2nd or 1st floor.

F live in 1A and already I lives on 1st floor.

Thus, B and C must live on 2nd floor.

Thus, F and I live on 1st floor, B, C and G live on 2nd floor and A, E live on 3rd floor.

D and H live in 1st and 3rd floor in any order.

Thus, the table is:-

We cannot determine who lives in a B house without any further information.

Hence, option E is the correct answer.

**7) Answer (D)**

A lives on 3rd floor.

E lives on a floor above G whereas G lives on a floor above I.

Thus, E lives on 3rd floor, G lives on 2nd floor and I lives on 1st floor.

C and B live on the same floor

Already 2 people live on 3rd floor. Thus, B and C either live on 2nd or 1st floor.

F live in 1A and already I lives on 1st floor.

Thus, B and C must live on 2nd floor.

Thus, F and I live on 1st floor, B, C and G live on 2nd floor and A, E live on 3rd floor.

D and H live in 1st and 3rd floor in any order.

Thus, the table is:-

Thus, if H and I have the same lettered house then they must live on different floors.

Thus, H lives on 3rd floor.

Thus, D must live on 1st floor and more particularly in 1B.

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**8) Answer (B)**

A lives on 3rd floor.

E lives on a floor above G whereas G lives on a floor above I.

Thus, E lives on 3rd floor, G lives on 2nd floor and I lives on 1st floor.

C and B live on the same floor

Already 2 people live on 3rd floor. Thus, B and C either live on 2nd or 1st floor.

F live in 1A and already I lives on 1st floor.

Thus, B and C must live on 2nd floor.

Thus, F and I live on 1st floor, B, C and G live on 2nd floor and A, E live on 3rd floor.

D and H live in 1st and 3rd floor in any order.

Thus, the table is:-

Thus, we can determine the floor on which a person lives for 7 people.

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (C)**

The number of friends with more car then Conan is the same as the number of people with less cars than him.

Thus, Conan has 4 cars.

The number of cars with Divya is a perfect square. Thus, Divya has either 1 or 4 cars.

But, Conan has 4 cars. Thus, Divya has 1 cars.

The number of cars with Esha is an even number less than 6.

Thus, Esha has 2 cars.

The number of cars with Abhay is a prime number.

Thus, Abhay has 3, 5 or 7 cars.

The number of cars with Fawad is the average of the number of cars with Abhay and Divya.

Thus, the number of cars with Fawad can be 3 or 4.

But, Conan has 4 cars. Thus, Fawad has 3 cars.

Abhay has 5 cars.

The number of cars with Bhushan is more than the number of cars with Gillespi

Thus, Bhushan has 7 cars and Gillespi has 6 cars.

Abhay has 5 cars. Thus, we can say that 2 people have more number of cars than Abhay.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (C)**

The number of friends with more car then Conan is the same as the number of people with less cars than him.

Thus, Conan has 4 cars.

The number of cars with Divya is a perfect square. Thus, Divya has either 1 or 4 cars.

But, Conan has 4 cars. Thus, Divya has 1 cars.

The number of cars with Esha is an even number less than 6.

Thus, Esha has 2 cars.

The number of cars with Abhay is a prime number.

Thus, Abhay has 3, 5 or 7 cars.

The number of cars with Fawad is the average of the number of cars with Abhay and Divya.

Thus, the number of cars with Fawad can be 3 or 4.

But, Conan has 4 cars. Thus, Fawad has 3 cars.

Abhay has 5 cars.

The number of cars with Bhushan is more than the number of cars with Gillespi

Thus, Bhushan has 7 cars and Gillespi has 6 cars.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**11) Answer (C)**

From the diagram, we can see that All crows can be pigeons and All bats can be black.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**12) Answer (E)**

From the diagram, we can see that all batsmen being all rounder is a possibility and some wicket keepers can be all rounders.

Hence, option E is the correct answer.

**13) Answer (A)**

From the diagram, we can see that all blades can be stainless and all pins can be stainless

Therefore, option A is the correct answer.

**14) Answer (E)**

From the diagram, we can see that some cones can be spheres. Hence, conclusion I doesn’t follow.

From the diagram, we can see that some cubes can be cones. Hence, conclusion II doesn’t follow.

Therefore, option E is the correct answer.

**15) Answer (B)**

From the diagram, we can see that no carrot is a tomato. Hence, conclusion I doesn’t follow.

From the diagram, we can see that some all radishes can be carrots. Hence, conclusion II follows.

Therefore, option B is the correct answer.

**16) Answer (A)**

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{2} – T _{1} = 4 – 2 = 2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{3} – T _{2} = 7 – 4 = 3$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{4} – T _{3} = 11 – 7 = 4$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{5} – T _{4} = 16 – 11 = 5$

Here we can see the pattern that difference between consecutive terms are in A.P. and it is increasing by 1. Therefore,

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{6} = 6 + T _{5} = 6+16 = 22$

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**17) Answer (C)**

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{1} = 9 = 5^2 – 4^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{2} = 27 = 6^2 – 3^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{3} = 45 = 7^2 – 2^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{4} = 63 = 8^2 – 1^2$

Hence, we can say that $\Rightarrow$ $T_{n} = (n+4)^2 – (5-n)^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{5} = (5+4)^2 – (5-4)^2 = 81$

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**18) Answer (D)**

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{1} = 3 = 2^2 – 1$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{2} = 8 = 3^2 – 1$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{3} = 15 = 4^2 – 1$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{4} = 24 = 5^2 – 1$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{5} = 35 = 6^2 – 1$

Hence, we can say that $\Rightarrow$ $T_{n} = (n+1)^2 – 1$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{6} = (6+1)^2 – 1 = 48$

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**19) Answer (E)**

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{1} = -3 = 1^3 – 2^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{2} = -1 = 2^3 – 3^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{3} = 11 = 3^3 – 4^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{4} = 39 = 4^3 – 5^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{5} = 89 = 5^3 – 6^2$

Hence, we can say that $\Rightarrow$ $T_{n} = n^3 – (n+1)^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{6} = 6^3 – 7^2 = 167$

Hence, option E is the correct answer.

**20) Answer (B)**

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{1} = 9 = 2^2 + 5$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{2} = 12 = 2^3 + 4$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{3} = 19 = 2^4 + 3$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{4} = 34 = 2^5 + 2$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{5} = 65 = 2^6 + 1$

Hence, we can say that $\Rightarrow$ $T_{n} = 2^{n+1} + (6 -n)$

$\Rightarrow$ $T_{6} = 2^{6+1} + (6 – 6) = 128$

Hence, option B is the correct answer.
