**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The first term of the first row is replaced by the resultant of the second row. So, the first row will become 113 16 42 25

113 16 – an odd number is being followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 113 and 16 which is 97.

97 42 – an odd number is being followed by a non-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the product of 97 and 42 which is 4074.

4074 25 – an even number is being followed by an odd-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 4074 and 25 which is 4059.

Thus, the new resultant of the first row is 4059.

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**2)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

9 17 4 36

9 17 – an odd number is being followed by a non-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the product of 9 and 17 which is 153.

153 4 – an odd number followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 153 and 4 which is 149.

149 36 – an odd number followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 149 and 36 which is 113.

Thus, the resultant of the second row is 113.

Hence, option E is the correct answer.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

8 16 42 25

8 16 – an even number is being followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the sum of 8 and 16 which is 24.

24 42 – an even number is being followed by a non-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the product of 24 and 42 which is 1008.

1008 25 – an even number is being followed by an odd-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 1008 and 25 which is 983.

Thus, the resultant of the first row is 983.

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Resultant of the first row is 89

So new second row is – 5 89 4 31

An odd number is followed by a non-perfect square number, so, 5 89 will have resultant as 84

In 84 4 31

An even number is followed by an even perfect square, so, 84 4 will have resultant as 88

In 88 31

An even number is followed by a non-perfect square number, so, 88 31 will have resultant as 57

Hence, option A is the right choice.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

5 16 4 31

An odd number is followed by an even perfect square, so, 5 16 will have resultant as 80

In 80 4 31

An even number is followed by an even perfect square, so, 80 4 will have resultant as 84

In 84 31

An even number is followed by a non-perfect square number, so, 84 31 will have resultant as 53

Hence, option D is the right choice.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (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.

**7)Â AnswerÂ (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.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (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.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

From the diagram, we can see that some cones can be spheres. Hence, conclusion I doesnâ€™t follow.

From the diagram, we can see that some cubes can be cones. Hence, conclusion II doesnâ€™t follow.

Therefore, option E is the correct answer.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

From the diagram, we can see that no carrot is a tomato. Hence, conclusion I doesnâ€™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.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

We know Y = J, J should be equal to E.

Also, S > L for L < C either S = C or S < C.

Hence, option D is the right choice.

**12)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

We know, K â‰¥ W for K â‰¥ Q either W = Q or W > Q.

Further Q < T for P > Q either P = T or P > T.

Hence, option E is the right choice.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Writing the two give expressions together,

T â‰¥ L # M > N â‰¥ P $ K

To have M > K, P must be greater than or equal to K. So, â€˜$â€™ must be replaced by â€˜>â€™ or â€˜â‰¥â€™ or ‘=’.

To have T > N, L must be greater than or equal to M. So, â€˜#â€™ must be replaced by â€˜>â€™ or â€˜â‰¥â€™ or ‘=’.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Writing the two give expressions together,

P > Q # R â‰¥ T â‰¥ K â‰¥ M $ O and T > J

For P > J, Q must be greater than or equal to R. So, â€˜#â€™ should be replaced by â€˜>â€™ or â€˜â‰¥â€™ or ‘=’

For R = O, M â‰¥ O or M = O. So, â€˜$â€™ should be replaced by either â€˜â‰¥â€™ or â€˜=â€™

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**15)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Five words formed are

HPB IJQ USZ MFH QVU

Three vowels are present in them.

**16)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Letters of five words after arranging in alphabetical order becomes

AGO HIP RTY EGL PTU

3 letters changed in GOA.

0 letters changed in HIP.

2 letters changed in TRY.

3 letters changed in LEG.

2 letters changed in PUT.

Hence, positions of 10 letters changed in the given words.

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Five words will change into

OGA IHP RTY ELG UPT

RTY is the word in which letters are in alphabetical order

**18)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Five words will change into

AOG PIH YRT GEL TUP

Hence, There are no meaningful words in newly formed words.

**19)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Five words will change into

HOA IIP URY MEG QUT

Each and every word has at least one vowel in it.

**20)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Five words formed are

UBC CFU EJF GPH KBX
