b)Â 45

c)Â 15

d)Â 30

Observing the question we can deduce the analogy that the alphabets at the extremes are increasing by 1 and “/A” remains constant.
Therefore O + 1 = P , E + 1 = F
P/AF

52Â + 2 = 25 + 2 = 27
92 + 2 = 81 + 2 = 83

$\frac{6}{12}=\frac{10}{a}$
So, $a=\frac{10*12}{6} = 20$

Analogy – Alphanumeric series

So A = 1 , B = 2 , E = 5
A + B + E = 8
Therefore Â K = 11 , L = 12 , O = 15
K + L + O = 38

Pig lives in a sty and Cow lives in a Byre

First ensures the second

Patrol ensure security, similarly insurance ensures protection.

A + 4 = E
D + 4 = H
B + 4 = F
C + 4 = G

Following the same analogy
I + 4 = M
L + 4 = P
J + 4 = N
K + 4 = O

The pattern is abbn
So the first two blanks in a_b_ should be filled with b and n
The next two blanks a_ _ n should be filled with b and b
The next two blanks in _bb_ should be filled with a and n.
So the required letters are b,n,b,b,a and n.

The relation between 6,30 and 90 isÂ $6 \times 5 = 30 , 6\times \frac{6}{2} \times 5 = 90$
So verifying option D, we get $8 \times 6 = 48, 8 \times \frac{8}{2} \times 6 = 192$

Sum of the alphabets in each of the number is
1+2+6 = 9
9 + 8 = 17 , 1 + 7 = 8
7 + 0 = 7
4 + 1 = 5Â â‰  6
1 + 4 = 5

Hence fouth number is the odd one in the series and option D is the right choice.

Everything begins with the day.
We go to work and get exhausted by night. Then go to sleep.

Hence the order is 3,5,1,2,4.

975 – 111 = 864 , 864 – 111 = 753, 753 – 111 = 642, 642 – 111 = 531

The pattern in $8 \times 3 = 24, \frac{24}{2} = 12, 12 \times 3 = 36, \frac{36}{2} = 18, 18 \times 3 = 54$

So 36 should come in place of the question mark and option B is the right choice.

Let Ashok’s present age be A and his mother’s present age be M
Five year ago they are A-5, M-5
So M – 5 = 3(A – 5)
M + 5 = 2(A + 5)
Subtracting both the equations above we get A =15
Substituting A = 15 in equation 1 we get, M = 35

M is the son of P and O is the husband of O, therefore M is the son of O.

After interchanging position 12th position from right will be 22nd position from left
Hence total no. of students will be 22+11 = 33

In option C, letter V couldn’t be available from letters of word IMPASSIONABLE.

Only in option D,Â HIPPOPOTAMUSÂ , all the letters are available in wordÂ MUSPOPAPOTIH

$1^2 = 1$
$3^2 = 9$
$5^2 = 25$
$7^2 = 49$ not $50$
$9^2 = 81$

let’s say intially men were $x$ so women will be $\frac{x}{2}$
After getting in and leaving bus men will be $x-10$ and women will be $\frac{x}{2} +5$
soÂ $x-10$ =Â $\frac{x}{2} +5$
or $x$ = 30 (men) and women will be 15
