All the word pairs except Son – Friend, are pair of male and female. A friend can either be male or female.

$\therefore\$Son – Friend is the odd word pair among the given word pairs.

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Raj’s mother’s father’s only grandson must be Raj. Therefore, the person in the photograph is Raj’s daughter’s son. Therefore, Raj is the maternal grandfather of the person in the photograph.

Amphibians comprises of frogs, similarly, lizard are classified as reptiles.

=> Ans – (C)

In this language each letter is replaced with its value in alphabets as L=12, E=5, T=20 and similarly HIM and so for PAN we have P=16, A=1, N=14, and so correct answer are 16114.

G is the 7th letter from the beginning while T is the 7th from the end in English alphabets.
Similarly, R is 18th from the beginning while I is 18th from the end. The same pattern has been followed for each of the other letters.
The letter at the nth position from the beginning is replaced by the letter at the nth position from the end. Thus the code for CHAMPION would be XSZNKRLM.

From the Venn diagram, we can see that neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.

$\sqrt[3]{729} = 9$

$\sqrt[3]{125} = 5$

$\sqrt[3]{343} = 7$

But Option C is not a perfect Cube. Hence Option is an odd one.

$\sqrt[3]{1321} = 10.97$

We do exercise in a gym and eat in a restaurant.

=> Ans – (B)

Crocodiles and snakes are subsets of reptiles. Viper is a type of snake. Falcon is not a reptile. Therefore, there must be a large circle (reptiles) and a disjoint circle (falcon). Inside the large circle, there must be 2 non-intersecting circles (crocodiles and snakes) and one of these 2 circles must contain another circle (Vipers). Therefore, option C is the right answer.

Here Rajkot is inside Gujarat state. Kanpur is not related to them. So the best diagram for this will be given below.

Hence, option d is the correct answer.

Successive powers of 2 are being added in each consecutive term.
5 + 2 = 7
7 + 4 = 11
11 + 8 = 19
19 + 16 = 35
35 + 32 = 67
67 + 64 = 131

The values in column 2 have the same digits.
Value in Colum 1 – Units/Tens digit of value in Column 2 = Value in column 3.
Let the unknown number be $xx$
91 – $x$ = 86
$x$ = 5
$xx$ =55
The missing number is 55.
ption D is the correct answer.

Since Ram first traveled in the north direction and then in the east direction to reach the café. The café will be in the northeast direction with respect to Ram’s home. Hence, option A is the correct option.

Rotating above diagram such that West becomes North.

Then, North-East becomes South-East.

The correct order according to dictionary is
3.journalese
2.journalists
1.jovialities
4.judiciaries

Given : 3!5 = 30, 6!1 = 12 and 5!8 = 80

If we replace ‘!’ with ‘x’ and also multiply the final result with ‘2’, then we will get the desired result.

Eg :- $2(3\times5)=30$

and $2(6\times1)=12$ and $2(5\times8)=80$

Similarly, $2(2\times2)=8$

=> Ans – (C)

According to the question,

So, here the question mark will be replaced by 48.

Grass, plant and tree are all parts of natural habitat, hence land is the odd one out.

=> Ans – (D)

The correct order according to the dictionary is
Irrational
Irresistible
irresponsible
irritation

if we closely examine the pattern being followed in the question, we can see that the first figure is having a zigzag pattern initiating from upwards, in the second it’s starting from the rightwards direction, in the third figure, it’s initiating from downwards in the 4th figure it should be starting leftwards

According to the question,
The correct sequence is millimeter, centimeter, decimeter, decameter, and kilometer.
We have the measurements as a millimeter, centimeter, decimeter, meter, decameter, hectometer, kilometer, from smallest to largest.

Given in the question,

1. Hunger

2. Cry

3. Feeding

4. Child

5. Sleep

6. Mother

Now, the correct order of the above terms will be,

(4) Child   (1)Hunger   (2)Cry   (6) Mother   (3) Feeding   (5)Sleep

Hence, the correct order is 412635.
