Hence statement A alone is not sufficient.

there whose applications were approved.

Hence the missing number will be 38 + 8 + 3 = 49.

Hence statement B alone is not sufficient.

Option (b) is the correct choice.

Combining the two statements:

Total number of students who enquire = x

8. b Please note that only even number of pages can be

As a reader will select at least one of the four books,

we must have P(A) + P(B) + P(C) + P(D) = 1 –1 1 0 1

Since it’s an increasing A.P., d cannot take any negative 20. d Let HCF(a, b) = H.

value and the first 3 terms should be negative. For two numbers P and Q, which are co-prime to each

That means d = 2, 3, 4. other, we can represent a and b as:

If d = 1, them 4th term would be 0 a = H × P and b = H × Q

Which is not acceptable. So that (a + b)/x = HCF(a, b) = H

Three cases are possible

Or H

(P + Q ) =H

x

⇒ x = (P + Q)

Hence x can be represented as the sum of any two

numbers which are co prime to each other.

Clearly 1997 registered highest % change with respect ⇒ Total number of ways colors can be chosen

Hence option (a) Hence option (c) is the correct choice

40. b Average annual growth rate during 1997 to 2001 49. b For the three blades, the three colors can be selected

in 4C3 = 4 ways

(50 – 10) since all have to be of different colours. The blades

Hence, option (b). Now the 2 tube lights and one CFL can be chosen in 4

ways each

41. c The given condition is that When the river overflows, Now, the positions of the fan and the CFL can be

we can say atleast one thing ——— that the river Hence total number of ways

Option (b) is the correct choice.

42. c The statement implies that for Ravan to go to hell, it is

necessary that the Bat should crow. But it is not a 50. a Each binary code we send as input to the computer

If 0001 is given as input, computer will generate output

43. c The Car is given along with a watch. So if one is given as: a × 0 + b × 0 + c × 0 + 1 × d = d

a watch, one will definitely be given a Car. But the If 0010 is given as input, computer will generate output

condition is not ‘only’. So, the Car may be given in as: a × 0 + b × 0 + c × 1 + 0 × d = c

other situations also. The correct option is c If 0100 is given as input, computer will generate output

as: a × 0 + b × 1 + c × 0 + 0 × d = b

44. d Culture is a strong underlying factor in perceiving and If 1000 is given as input, computer will generate output

expressing emotions according to the paragraph. as: a × 1 + b × 0 + c × 0 + 0 × d = a

Hence, option d is correct. Hence the above 4 binary code as input is sufficient to

determine each of the number written on the 4 cards.

45. b The passage talks about little attention being paid to Decimal notation of 0001, 0010, 0100, and 1000 are 1,

non-scholastic abilities; the implication being that it 2, 4 and 8 respectively. Hence option (a)

should be given its due attention by teachers and

evaluation system. Hence, ‘b’ is the correction option. 51. d Binary equivalent of 15 is 1111.

‘a’ and ‘c’ are too definitive. ‘d’ digresses from the core If 1111 is send as input to the computer, it will generate

idea. the output as: 1 × a + 1 × b + 1 × c + 1 × d

According to the question,

46. d Option is not mentioned in the passage, all other options a + b + c + d = 25.

are mentioned directly or indirectly in the passage. Since it’s given that three numbers are even and one

of them is prime.

The only possible combination is 4, 6, 7 and 8.

Hence option (d).

52. d If 1111 is given as input, we get the 4 numbers as 4, 6, In each of the two groups, the first letter is exchange

7 and 8 (From above question) by the last letter, the second letter by the second last

If 1001 is given as input, he gets the output as 10. letter and so on. Thus we get:

It implies a + d = 10. PHILAN ⇔ NALIHP

Hence a, d = 4, 6 in any order. THROPY ⇔ YPORHT

We can conclude that the prime number is behind card

Similarly, the code for the word PLEBISCITE is obtained

“b” or “c”. Hence option (d).

as:

PLEBISCITE ⇔ PLEBI + SCITE

53. d C will occupy seat 3 and B will occupy seat 2. Now

A and D have their preferred seat already occupied PLEBI ⇔ IBELP and SCITE ⇔ ETICS

so they can randomly occupy any seat. E will have no Thus the code is IBELPETICS.

option but to occupy the leftover seat. So it effectively

becomes arrangement of 3 kids in 3 seats, which can 59. d Original Message: Come as you are

be done in 3! = 6 ways. Hence option (d). Step I: cpmf bs ypv brf

Step II: cPmF Bs yPV BrF

54. a Maximum three kids can get their preferred seats, Step III: FmPc sB VPy FrB

since there are clashes between A and B , C and D. Hence (d) is the correct answer.

All the kids A, C and E don’t have any clashes among

their preference, so they will occupy the seats 2, 3, 4

60. b Original Message: “Swim across to moon”

depending on their order of arrival. Option (c) is ruled

out , since He can occupy preferred seat of D i.e. 4.

Step II: swJm BcRPss TP mPPN

Hence option (a) 1, 2 and 4.

Step III: mJws ssPRcB PT NPPm

Hence (b) is the correct answer.

55. b The codes for different words are obtained by

summing up the individual letters’ corresponding place

61. b Every next term is obtained by adding the greater digit

of the previous number. Therefore the missing term

TABLE is 20 + 1 + 2 + 12 + 5 = 40

will be 35 + 5 = 40.

CHAIR is 3 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 18 = 39

Hence option (b) is the correct option.

Hence DESK will be coded as DESK = 4 + 5 + 19 + 11

= 39. Hence (b) is correct.

62. d The sequence consists of half of the prime numbers

in increasing order. Therefore the missing term will be

56. c The code for a word is obtained by replacing each

alphabet of the word by its immediate predecessor, in 13

= 6.5.

the alphabet series. Hence in the word ENJOYMENT, 2

E is replaced by D Hence option (d) is the correct choice.

N is replaced by M

J is replaced by I 63. c Observe that the numbers in the sequence are one

O is replaced by N less than a perfect square. For example 8 is one less

Y is replaced by X than 9, 24 is one less than 25. Therefore the missing

M is replaced by L term will be one less than 36 which is 35. Option (c) is

E is replaced by D the correct choice.

N is replaced by M

T is replaced by S 64. c Note that the numbers in the sequence are one more

Hence option (c) is the correct answer. than the cube of first ‘n’ natural numbers. Therefore

the missing term will be 53 + 1 = 126.

57. a The first and the last letters of the words are kept Hence option (c) is the correct choice.

coded word. Hence in the word NANDGAON, ANDGAO 65. a First term is 101 × 1, second is 101 × 11 , third is 101

correct.

Hence option (a) is the correct choice.

58. d The given word is broken into twp parts, each having

equal number of alphabets in it. Letter in each of these

two groups are interchanged as explained below:

PHILANTHROPY is broken in to two groups

i. PHILAN and

ii. THROPY
