Question 11: Six tailors T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6 are sitting around a circular table facing towards the centre (Not necessarily in the same order). T2 is second to the right of T1. T5 is to the immediate right of T3. T3 and T4 are facing towards each other. Three of the four given options follows a same logic. Which of the following does not follow that logic?

a) T2, T3

b) T4, T6

c) T1, T3

d) T6, T5

The word RANKING does not contain any ‘C’ or ‘T’, thus the term Acting cannot be formed.

=> Ans – (D)

The ranking list would be in the order A, B, C, D……., X, Y, Z. Now the A wins all his 25 matches, B wins 24 matches and lost to A. C wins 23 matches and lost to A and B. In this way N 12 matches and looses 13 matches to A,B,C,D….,M

Given that the rank of x is 15th from the top and total number of students in the class is 40

So there will be 25 students after x and rank of x from the bottom will be 26

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

Number of students who passed the exam = $(18+39)-1=56$

Total number of students = $56+10+4=70$

=> Ans – (D)

H3 and H1 are the immediate neighbours of H2.Given,

Five persons H1, H2, H3, H4 and H5 are sitting around a circular table facing towards the centre and H4 is third to the left of H2.

H5 is to the immediate left of H3.

Let the 5th number be x

Given numbers are 10, 15, 20, 25 and

Average of five numbers = 20

$\therefore \frac{10 + 15 + 20 + 25 + x}{5} = 20$

70 + x = 100 (or) x = 30

Arranging the numbers in ascending order – 10, 15, 20, 25, 30

Average of last three numbers = $\frac{20 + 25 + 30}{3}$

= $\frac{75}{3}$ (or) 25

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

As per the dictionary,

= Submerge -> Synarchy -> Syncretism -> Syphilis -> Syringe

$\equiv$ 5,4,3,2,1

=> Ans – (B)

Fractions : $\frac{3}{4},\frac{5}{12},\frac{13}{16},\frac{16}{29},\frac{3}{8}$

L.C.M. of denominators (4,12,16,29,8) = 1392

Thus, fractions are changed to : $\frac{1044}{1392},$ $\frac{580}{1392},$ $\frac{1131}{1392},$ $\frac{768}{1392},$ $\frac{522}{1392}$

Now the denominators are equal and fraction are arranged on the basis of numerators

= $\frac{522}{1392}<$ $\frac{580}{1392}<$ $\frac{768}{1392}<$ $\frac{1044}{1392}<$ $\frac{1131}{1392}$

$\equiv$ $\frac{3}{8}<\frac{5}{12}<\frac{16}{29}<\frac{3}{4}<\frac{13}{16}$

=> Ans – (B)

$\frac{3}{4}=0.75$

$\frac{5}{12}=0.42$

$\frac{13}{16}=0.81$

$\frac{16}{29}=0.55$

$\frac{3}{8}=0.37$

Descending order = $\frac{13}{16}>\frac{3}{4}>\frac{16}{29}>\frac{5}{12}>\frac{3}{8}$

=> Ans – (C)

Saurav is at third place and they are standing in descending order.

Bhim is between Sumit and Saurav while Sumit is not at the top end, => Sumit is at the bottom.

Also, position of Mukesh and Mohit is unknown.

Thus, the final arrangement is :

$\therefore$ Second place from top cannot be determined.

=> Ans – (D)
