**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

(A) : 12 A 6 B 3 C 4 D 3 = 14

$\equiv12+6-3\times4\div3=14$

L.H.S. = $12+6-(\frac{3\times4}{3})$

= $18-4=14=$ R.H.S.

=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (D)**

Consecutive odd numbers are added.

B (+5) = G (+7) = N (+9) = W (+11) = **H**

=> Ans – (D)

**3) Answer (D)**

Expression = 36 : 27 :: 196 : ?

The pattern followed is = $(n)^2:(\frac{n}{2})^3$

Eg :- $(6)^2:(\frac{6}{2})^3=36:27$

Similarly, $(14)^2=196$

=> $(\frac{14}{2})^3=(7)^3=343$

=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (A)**

(A) : Q (+1) = R (+2) = T (**+5**) = Y

(B) : B (+1) = C (+2) = E (+6) = K

(C) : F (+1) = G (+2) = I (+6) = O

(D) : T (+1) = U (+2) = W (+6) = C

=> Ans – (A)

**5) Answer (C)**

**6) Answer (D)**

L+1 = M

B+1 = C → MC

Next term:

M+2 = O

C+2 = E → OE

Next term:

O+3 = R

E+3 = H → RH

Similarly, Next term will be

R+4 = V

H+4 = L → VL

**7) Answer (C)**

Jug, Dupe, Quick, dazzle, ?

All the words have 3, 4, 5, 6 letters respectively.

Thus, the next term will be a 7 letter word i.e. puzzler.

**8) Answer (D)**

Italy, Situation,Spirit, Stride, Statistical,?

The position of the letter ‘i’ in each term is shifted one place to the right.

Eg : Italy (1st place) , Situation (2nd place) , Spirit (3rd place) , Stride(4th place), Statistical (5th place)

Thus, in the next term, ‘i’ will be at 6th position, and among the options, next word = Pristine.

**9) Answer (B)**

In the 1st term only A is present and in the next term 1 A and C is added and in the 3rd term 1 c and E is added and in the 4th term 1 E and G should be added and so the required answer is AACCEEG

**10) Answer (A)**

Expression = Wheat : Grain : : ? : ?

The first comes under the category of second, wheat is type of grain, similarly rose is a flower.

=> Ans – (A)

**11) Answer (C)**

Series : COT, DQU, ESV, FUW, ?

The pattern followed in each letter of the terms is :

1st letter : C (+1 letter) = D (+1 letter) = E (+1 letter) = F (+1 letter) = G

2nd letter : O (+2 letters) = Q (+2 letters) = S (+2 letters) = U (+2 letters) = W

3rd letter : T (+1 letter) = U (+1 letter) = V (+1 letter) = W (+1 letter) = X

Thus, missing term = **GWX**

=> Ans – (C)

**12) Answer (D)**

National game of India is Hockey and similarly for New Zealand it is Rugby.

**13) Answer (B)**

Promising : Pessimistic

Promising and Pessimistic are antonyms, thus the word with opposite in meaning as Ease is Aggravate.

**14) Answer (D)**

In this question each number is multiplied by its next number.

2*3=6

3*4=12

4*5=20

5*6=30

6*7=42

7*8=56

8*9=72

**15) Answer (B)**

Expression : 16 ÷ 4 x 8 – 10 + 14 = 12

(A) : x and –

L.H.S. = $16\div4-8\times10+14$

= $4-80+14=-62\neq$ R.H.S.

(B) : ÷ and x

L.H.S. = $16\times4\div8-10+14$

= $(2\times4)+4=12=$ R.H.S.

=> Ans – (B)
