Words :Â SHE AND TWO WIT GUM

If all the letters in each of the words are arranged in alphabetical order, then

= EHS , ADN , OTW , ITW , GMU

Thus, none of theÂ words will remain unchanged.

=> Ans – (E)

**2)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Word – ‘PROACTIVE’

If each of the alphabet is arranged in alphabetical order = ACEIOPRTV

Thus,Â position of none of the alphabets will remain unchanged.

=> Ans – (A)

**3)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Q is sitting third to the left of W and two persons are sitting between Q and P, => P is sitting 3rd to the left of Q.

R is sitting second to the left of S and S is not an immediate neighbour of W, => R sits to the immediate right of W and S sits to the immediate right of P.

T and U are immediate neighbours of each other and only one person is sitting between U and V, => T sits to the immediate left of W and U sits between T and Q. Thus, the vacant spot is taken by V, i.e. to the immediate left of Q.

If all the persons are asked to sit in a clockwise direction in an alphabetical order starting from P, the position of only V will remain unchanged.

=> Ans – (E)

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Correct order in descending orderÂ :

=Â Annual (1 year) -> BiÂannualÂ (6 months) -> MonthlyÂ (30 days) -> FortnightlyÂ (15 days) ->Â Weekly (7 days)

$\equiv$Â 5, 2, 4, 3, 1

**7)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the first number be $2x$

=> Second number = $x$

and third number = $4x$

Average of these numbers = $\frac{2x + x + 4x}{3} = 56$

=> $x = \frac{56 * 3}{7} = 24$

Numbers are = 2*24 , 24 , 4*24

= 48 , 24 , 96

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**9)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

We can clearly make out from the given table that there are 8Â Â schools in the list which have single digit rankings on at least 3 of the 4 parameters.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

We have to consider the ranking of that state that doesn’t change throughout or changes only once.

The rankings of the states are as follows:

So, the states West Bengal, Tamil Nau, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh do not change their rankings more than once. There are 5 states in total under the criteria.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Ranking of UP changed 2 times which is highest among other states.

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

**13)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Chatur is taller than only two persons => Chatur is third tallest.

Exactly one person is taller than Dileep => Dileep is second tallest.

Amar is taller than none of the other friends => Amar is shortest.

Bablu is the older than only Eisha => Bablu is second youngest and Eisha is youngest.

The youngest is not the tallest => Eisha is fourth tallest and Bablu is tallest.

Amar is older than only Bablu and Eisha => Amar is third youngest.

Chatur is older than Dileep => Chatur is oldest and Dileep is second oldest.

Dileep is 2nd in both height and age.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

From the table, we can see that room no. 302 is preferred by 3 managers. Hence, company will allocate room no. 302 to anyone of three managers namely M1, M2 and M4. Remaining two managers won’t able to get their best preference. The remaining two manager will get their second preference as shown in the table below,

Hence, the minimum sum = 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 = 7. Therefore, option C is the correct answer.

**15)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

From the table, we can see that 2 managers have preferred room no 301 and same is true for room no. 302. Hence, only one out of the two manager will get his/her preferred choice as room no. 301. The same is true for room no 302. Room no. 303 will be be straightaway allocated to M3. 302 can allocated to M4 and 301 can be allocated to M6. Then 304 and 305 can be allocated to M1 and M5 respectively.

Hence, the minimumÂ sum of the preference ranking allotted to all five managers = 1+1+1+3+3 = 9. Hence, option E is the correct answer.
