**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

“After he finishes” is the correct grammatical construction.

=> Option A is the answer.

**2) Answer (D)**

‘Enervate’ means to make someone feel drained of energy or vitality. ‘Prostrate’ and ‘devitalize’ are words with similar meanings.

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**3) Answer (A)**

‘Dilettante’ means a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge. ‘Amateur’ is the word with the same meaning and ‘specialist’ is the word with opposite the meaning.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**4) Answer (D)**

‘Perspicacious’ means having a ready insight into and understanding of things. ‘Astute’ and ‘shrewd’ are words with similar meanings.

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (B)**

Bamboo is grass, others are trees.

**6) Answer (D)**

Let us assume that a,b,c are the current ages of A,B,C.

a-2:b-2 = 3:4 =>4a = 3b+2…………..(I)

c = b+11

a+c = 50

a+b = 50-11 =39…………….(II)

From (I) and (II)

we get a = 17 and b = 22

Hence the current age of B is 22 years.

**7) Answer (B)**

$\large\sqrt{6084}\div\sqrt[3]{2197}$ $+$ $\large\sqrt[3]{54872}\times\sqrt{225}\div\sqrt[3]{6859} =$ $\Large\frac{78}{13}$ $+$ $\Large\frac{38\times15}{19}$

$=$ $\large6$ $+$ $\large30$ $=$ $\large36$

**8) Answer (A)**

Let the number of students be ‘x’

Given that the average is increased by $\Large\frac{1}{3}$ due to the increase of $18$ marks ( $64$ $-$ $46$ $=$ $18$ marks )

Actual increase in marks $=$ $\Large\frac{1}{3}$ $\times$ x

$\Rightarrow$ $\Large\frac{1}{3}$ $\times$ x $=$ $18$

$\therefore$ Number of students(x) $=$ $54$

**9) Answer (C)**

In quantity 1 it is the power cycle of 3 i.e last digits are 3,9,7,1,3,9,7,1…

Remainder when 467*145 is divided by 4 is same as remainder when 3*1 is divided by 4 since 3 and 1 are the remainders when 467 and 145 is divided by 4. Therefore 3 is the remainder and so last digit is 7.

In Quantity 2 it is the power cycle of 2 i.e last digits are 2,4,8,6,2,4,8,6…

Remainder when the number 347*254 is divided by 4 is 2 and so last digit will be $2^2 = 4$

Therefore Quantity 1 > Quantity 2

**10) Answer (A)**

Work done per hour by P = $\frac{1}{16*5} = \frac{1}{80}$

Work done per hour by Q = $\frac{1}{24*2.5} = \frac{1}{60}$

Work done per hour if both work together = $\frac{1}{80} + \frac{1}{60} = \frac{140}{80*60}$

Number of hours taken to complete the work = $\frac{80*60}{140}$

Number of days taken to complete the work = $\frac{80*60}{140*12} = \frac{20}{7} $ days

Hence, option A is the right choice.

**11) Answer (A)**

A – B means that A is the spouse of B.

B + D means that B is the father of D. Therefore, A must be the mother of D.

D * C means that D and C are siblings. Therefore, C must either be the son or the daughter of A.

C + E means that C is the father of E. Therefore, C is a male. C must be the son of A.

Therefore, option A is the right answer.

**12) Answer (C)**

K has more pencils than N but less than L, => L > K > N.

M has more pencils than L, => M > L.

Combining above statements, we get : **M > L > K > N **

J neither has the most nor the least number of pencils.

Thus, N has the least number of pencils.

=> Ans – (C)

**13) Answer (C)**

The pattern which is being followed here is that the first letter is being replaced by the letter which comes next in English alphabets. The second letter is replaced by the one which comes second after this letter in english alphabets. Similarly, the third is being replaced by the one which comes third and so on. For example

B + 1 = C

R + 2 = T

I + 3 = L

G + 4 = K

H + 5 = M

T + 6 = Z

Using the same logic, we can find the code word for PEOPLE to be ‘QGRTQK’.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**14) Answer (A)**

From the figure, we can see that E is to the East of A

**15) Answer (D)**

There is an alternate sequence of white hexagon and black circle. As in the last figure we got a white hexagon, we should get a black circle next. Hence, it should be one of 3 or 4. The black circle in 3 is much larger than any shown in the previous figures. Hence, it breaks the pattern. Hence, option 4.
