questions.

each other. One row has 5 flats facing North and the other row has 5 flats facing South.

782
The second highest number is 782. Hence the required middle digit is ‘8’.
2-2; Since half of the remaining play both football and cricket, the remaining 10 who
play only cricket comprise the other half. Now, both the halves must be equal.
Hence, required no. of students = 10.

5-5; Here, the specified letters are M, E, A and N
Meaningful words made from these letters are
1. MANE 2. MEAN 3. NAME 4. AMEN
Since the number of meaningful words is more than one, our answer is ‘Z’.

(6-10): We have information that F’s flat is second to the right of J’s flat, which is
exactly opposite of C’s flat facing North. Thus, we get

Again, we have information that D’s flat is on the immediate left of J’s flat

Again, since B’s flat is on the right of C’s flat it implies that the flat of B is just

Again, since I and E have flats at the two ends of the same row. This implies
that the flats of both I and E can be in the same row in which the flats of B, C

and A are. Thus, we get two such cases
Case - I

Case - II

Now, we have been given that the flats of E and H are opposite each other.
Thus reject case I, because in that case E and F are opposite each other. Hence,
the positions of the ten flats are as follows.

11-1; We have to look for consonant-number-vowel sequence. But in the given
arrangement there is no such sequence.
12-1; The eighth element to the left of the seventeenth from the left end implies
(17 − 8) = 9th element from the left end, i.e, ‘M’.

15-5; In others, the first and the third element of each group are adjacent elements.
16-1; Statement (a) + statement (b) gives no conclusion [... I + I = no conclusion].

Hence conclusion III does not follow. Again statement (b) + statement (c) gives
no conclusion. Hence, conclusion I and II do not follow.
17-4; Statement (a) + conversion of statement (b) gives no conclusion [ ... A + I =
no conclusion]. Hence conclusion I and conclusion III do not follow. But these
two conclusions make a complementary pair. Hence either conclusion I or
conclusion III follows. Again from statement (b) and statement (c), we get
"All pens are papers" [ ... A + A = A] And conversion of "All pens are papers "
gives conclusion II. Hence conclusion II follows.
18-2; Statement (a) + statement (b) gives no conclusion [... A + I = no conclusion].

Statement (b) + statement (c) gives conclusion I [... I + A = I]. Again, statement

conclusion regarding ‘chains’ and mirrors. Hence conclusion III does not
follow.

19-5; Statement (b), statement (c) gives conclusion "Some hammers are rings"
[... I + A = I]. On conversion of "Some hammers are rings", we get conclusion
I. Again conversion of statement (a) gives conclusion II. And conversion of
statement (c) gives conclusion III.

20-5; Statement (a) + statement (b) gives conclusion "All hotels are belts".
[ ... A + A = A]. And conversion of "All hotels are belts" gives conclusion I.
Hence, conclusion I follows. Again conversion of statement (a) gives
conclusion II. Hence conclusion II follows. Again conclusion III follows from
conversion of statement (c). Hence conclusion III follow.
