**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

ExpressionÂ : J + H / R x L

J is the wife of H, and H is the brother of R.

Also, L is the father ofÂ R, => H is the son of L.

Thus, J is the daughter-in-law of L.

=> Ans – (B)

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**4)Â AnswerÂ (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 getÂ : **M > L > K > N Â **

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

Thus, N has the least number of pencils.

=> Ans – (C)

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

ExpressionÂ : $P(P-3)<4P-12$

=> $P^2-3P-4P+12<0$

=> $P^2-7P+12<0$

=> $(P-3)(P-4)<0$

=> $P<3$ andÂ $P>4$

=> Ans – (A)

**6)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

given that P denotesÂ Â `+â€™: â€˜Râ€™ denotes â€˜Ã·â€™: T denotes â€˜-â€˜ and Wâ€™ denotes â€˜Ã—â€™

we need to find value ofÂ **40 R 8 W 10 T 12 P 16**

=> Ans – (B)

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

GivenÂ : $W>R$ and $E \geq S$

Now, for above statements to be true, the expressionÂ :

$W>E=A\geq R\geq S$

=> Ans – (A)

**13)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

ExpressionÂ :Â V < E > B = H â‰¥ N â‰¥ P

=> $E>B=H\geq N\geq P$ and $E>V$

Thus, the only true statement is = $P\leq B$

=> Ans – (A)

**14)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

The fourth option mentions about the loss of crop due to this method and the final option talks about its limitations, thus both weakening the statement.

But the third option gives a choice for the farmers to use hydroponics and thus does not weaken the given statement.

=> Ans – (C)

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Given inequality, $3(x^{2} – 4x + 4) < x$

=> $3x^{2} – 13x + 12 < 0$

=> On solving the equations we get x = 3, 4/3

On the checking for the value of the equation in 3 regions, we see that it is negative only for $ \frac{4}{3} < x < 3$

so option c is correct

**18)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Number –Â 4671358

1st, 4th and 7th digits = 4, 1, 8

Now, if a number should be a perfect square of an odd number, then the number should also be odd, i.e. end with ‘1’ in this case.

Numbers ending with 1 = 481, 841

Now, $841=(29)^2$ and 481 is not a perfect square number.

Digit in 10th place = **2**

=> Ans – (A)

**19)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Number –Â 38564927

The criteria to qualify the examination is that a student has to getÂ :

(a)Â :Â $\geq50\%$ marks separately in any **four** subjects.

(b) :Â $\geq35\%$ marksÂ in each of the **six** subjects.

Since, only 25% students have qualified in the examination, then these students definitely gotÂ at least 35% and above marks in each of the subjects as given in the fourth option.

=> Ans – (D)

**23)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Ravi is standing 12th from the back. So, there are 13 students ahead of him. So, Raviâ€™s position is 14th from the front.

**24)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Arrange all the vowels and then consonants from left.

IOUFHLRS

Now all the vowels are replaced with previous letters and all the consonants are replaced by next letter.

HNTGIMST

Now third letter from right is M.

Hence, C is the correct answer.

**25)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

NumbersÂ : 567 284 696 865 738

IfÂ â€˜1â€™ is added to the last digit, then numbers :Â 568 , 285 , 697 , 866 , 739

Now, order of digits is reversed, = 865 , 582 , 796 , 668 , 937

After arranging in ascending order = 582 , 668 , 796 , 865 , 937

Thus, 4th from left = $865\equiv567$

=> Ans – (A)
