**Directions (Q.4-6)**** **The following questions are based on the five three digit numbers given below.

394 632 783 576 895

**4.** If the positions of the first and the second digit within each number are interchanged, which of the following will be the second highest number ?

**(1)** 632

**(2)** 783

**(3)** 576

**(4)** 895

**(5)** 394

**Ans : (5)**

**Solutions :** Interchanging the first and second digits of each number,

934 362 873 756 985

Hence, the second highest number is 394.

**5.** If the first and second digits of each of the numbers are added the resulting sum of which of the following numbers will not be exactly divisible by 3 ?

**(1)** 895

**(2)** 394

**(3)** 576

**(4)** 632

**(5)** 783

**Ans : (1)**

**Solutions :** First and second digits of each of the numbers are added,

12 9 15 12 17

17 cannot divisible by 3. Hence, the number is 895.

**6.** If 2 is added to the last digit of each number and then the positions of first and the third digits are interchanged, which of the following will be the highest number ?

**(1)** 576

**(2)** 895

**(3)** 783

**(4)** 394

**(5)** 632

**Ans : (1)**

**Solutions :** If 2 is added to the last digit of each number then,

394 + 2 = 396,632 + 2 = 634,

783 + 2 = 785,576 + 2 = 578,895 + 2 = 897

Now interchange the position of first and third digit.

693, 436, 587, 875, 798

Hence, the highest number ― 576.

**7.** If ‘A’ is coded as 1, ‘B’ as 5 and so on, which of the following is the numerical value of the word ‘FAZED’ ?

**(1)** 81

**(2)** 79

**(3)** 77

**(4)** 80

**(5)** None of these

**Ans : (2)**

**Solutions :** Given code is

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N

1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27

O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

29 31 33 35 37 39 41 43 45 47 49 51

So F A Z E D = 11 + 1 + 51 + 9 + 7 = 79

**8.** Which of the following pairs of words have the same relationship as FAN : HEAT ?

**(1)** Water : Drink

**(2)** Light : Night

**(3)** Teach : Student
