Drawing a venn diagram from above information, we get :

(A) : No jungle is an estate = FALSE, it is a possibility.

(B) : No jungle is a farm = FALSE, some of the jungle is definitely farm.

(C) : All estates being houses is a possibility = FALSE, because in this case ranch will have to be a part of jungle.

(D) : No farm is a ranch. = TRUE

(E) : All ranches being houses is a possibility = FALSE, because in this case ranch will have to be a part of jungle.

=> Ans – (D)

The given figure represents one scenario when neither of the conclusions follow. Hence, option E.

Numbers : 567 284 696 865 738

If ‘1’ is added to the last digit, then numbers : 568 , 285 , 697 , 866 , 739

Now, order of digits is reversed, = 865 , 582 , 796 , 668 , 937

After arranging in ascending order = 582 , 668 , 796 , 865 , 937

Thus, 4th from left = $865\equiv567$

=> Ans – (A)

7’s which are immediately preceded by 5 and not immediately followed by 8 : (5) (7) (not 8)

2  3   5   7   8   9   3   4   5   7    6    1   9   3   5   7   4   8   3   2   5   7   8   8  9   2  5

Thus, there are two such 7’s.

=> Ans – (C)

Series : XBF UDK RFO OHR ?

The first letters of the above series are decreasing by a factor of 3. Thus the first letter = O – 3 = L

The second letters are increasing by a factor of 2, => Second letter = H + 2 = J

The third letters are increasing by a factor of (+5,+4,+3), => Third letter = R + 2 = T

$\therefore$ LJT is next in the series.

=> Ans – (C)

All positions in this question will be from left end.

Total students in the row = 40

Vikas’s position = 26

Since, Kailash was shifted 10 places to the left of Vikas => Kailash position = 16

Three boys were sitting between Kailash and Sameer => Sameer’s position = 12 or 20

Sameer was 10 places to the right of Raman.

=> Raman’s position = 2 or 10

Thus, not sufficient data is given.

NOTE :- Position from front + Position from bottom = Total students + 1

Total no. of boys = 20

D’s position from front = 14th

F’s position from bottom = 9th

=> F’s position from front = (20+1)-9 = 12th

Since, D is at 14th and F is at 12th position, => there is only 1 boy between D & F.

Ans – (E)

The criteria to qualify the examination is that a student has to get :

(a) : $\geq50\%$ marks separately in any four subjects.

(b) : $\geq35\%$ marks in each of the six subjects.

Since, only 25% students have qualified in the examination, then these students definitely got at least 35% and above marks in each of the subjects as given in the fourth option.

=> Ans – (D)

Except the third statement, i.e. a private builders scheme which has come up on the adjacent plot is overbooked in spite of higher cost and 100% advance payment, all may be reasons for not going for the flats by the people. The third option has no connection with the statement.

=> Ans – (C)

Meaningful English words that can be formed from CFAE :

FACE & CAFE

Thus, only 2 words can be formed.

Word – DEPARTMENTAL

1st, 5th, 7th, 8th and 11th letters = D,R,M,E,A

Only 1 meaningful word can be formed = Dream

Thus, first letter of the word = D

=> Ans – (B)

Violin, Harp, Guitar, Sitar are all string based musical instruments while flute is air based musical instrument.

And the option is D.

Nest does not belong to the group.
All others are materials used by birds to make the nest.
Hence, the correct answer is option is D.

Number – 4671358

1st, 4th and 7th digits = 4, 1, 8

Now, if a number should be a perfect square of an odd number, then the number should also be odd, i.e. end with ‘1’ in this case.

Numbers ending with 1 = 481, 841

Now, $841=(29)^2$ and 481 is not a perfect square number.

Digit in 10th place = 2

=> Ans – (A)
