**6** A man had returned after a day’s bird-shooting. He was asked how many birds he had in the bag. He said “they are all sparrows but six; all pigeons but six and all doves but six”,

How many birds had he in all ?

(1) 18

(2) 9

(3) 27

(4) 64

(5) None of these

**Ans : (2)**

**Explanation :** Let the no. of birds be x

∴ (x – 6) + (x – 6) + (x – 6) = x

∴ 3x – 18 = x

⇒ 2x = 18 ⇒ x = 9.

**7 I**f HKUJ means FISH, what does UVCD mean ?

(1) STAR

(2) STAK

(3) STAL

(4) STAB

(5) None of these

**Ans : (4)**

**8** Supply the missing figure :

2, 6, 12, 20, 30 … 56

(1) 42

(2) 38

(3) 46

(4) 56

(5) None of these

**Ans : (1)**

**Explanation :** The series is 1^{2} + 1, 2^{2} + 2, 3^{2} + 3, 4^{2} + 4, 5^{2} + 5, 6^{2} + 6 ……

Hence missing figure : 6^{2} + 6 = 42

**10.** Supply the missing figure :

1, 4, 9, 16, 25 …. 49

(1) 27

(2) 36

(3) 64

(4) 81

(5) None of these

**Ans : (2)**

**Explanation :** The series is 1^{2}, 2^{2}, 3^{2}, 4^{2}, 5^{2}, 6^{2}, 7^{2} ……

∴ Missing figure = 6^{2 }= 36

**11.** A Shephered had 17 sheep. All but nine died. How many did he have left ?

(2) 2000

(3) 2101

(4) 2100

(5) None of these

**Ans : (1)**

**14.** If A = 1, B = 3, C = 5 and so on, what do the numbers 3, 9, 7 stand for ?

(a) BID

(b) BAD

(c) BED

(d) CAR

(5) None of these

**Ans : (3)**

**Explanation :** A → 1st position → 1

B → 2nd position → 2 + 1 = 3

C → 3rd position → 3 + 2 = 5

D → 4th position → 4 + 3 = 7

E → 5th position → 5 + 4 = 9

Hence, 3, 9, 7 stands for B, E, D.

**15.** Which choice provides the answer : If 2 + 3 = 10, 6 + 5 = 66, 7 + 2 = 63, 9 + 7 = 144 then, 8 + 4 = ?

(a) 48

(b) 144

(c) 96

(d) 55

(5) None of these

**Ans : (3)**

**Explanation :** By the rule 2 + 3 = 10

6 + 5 = 66

7 + 2 = 63

We see that two numbers are added first and then multiplied by first number. For, example see 7 + 2 = 9 then 9 * 7 = 63

∴ Here 8 + 4 = 12

then 8 * 12 = 96.

**16.** Which choice provides the answer in the following : If 2 * 3 = 36, 5 * 4 = 400, 6 * 2 = 144, 3 * 3 = 81; then, 5 * 5 = ?

(1) 255

(2) 625

(3) 10

(4) 25

(5) None of these

**Ans : (2)**

**Explanation :** As 2 * 3 = 6 But here the rule framed as

2 * 3 → 6^{2} → 36

5 * 4 → 20^{2} → 400

3 * 3 → 9^{2 } → 81

∴ 5 * 5 → (25)^{2} → 625
