In the following questions, read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.

It is strange that, according to his position in life, an extravagant man is admired or despised. A successful businessman does nothing to increase his popularity by being careful with his money. He is expected to display his success, to have a smart car, an expensive life, and to be lavish with his hospitality. If he is not so, he is considered mean and his reputation in business may even suffer in consequence.

The paradox remains that if he had not been careful with his money in the first place, he would never have achieved his present wealth. Among the two income groups, a different set of values exists. The young clerk who makes his wife a present of a new dress when he hadn’t paid his house rent, is condemned as extravagant. Carefulness’with money to the point of meanness is applauded as a virtue. Nothing in his life is considered more worthy than paying his bills. The ideal wife for such a man separates her housekeeping money into joyless little piles, and she is able to face the milkman with equanimity and never knows the guilt of buying something she can’t really afford.

Solution:

The venn diagram for above statements is :

Also, American scientist = Horizontal lines , Indian scientists working in America = Vertical lines and Dots represent talent.

Conclusions :

I. None of the Indian scientists is talented. => This isn't true as part of the rectangle is covered with 'Dots'.

II. Some talented Indian scientists have migrated. => This is true as vertical lines part of rectangle represent Indian scientist working in America, and that part is 'dotted'.

III. All talented scientists are in America. => This isn't true as the whole square is not dotted.

IV. Some Indian scientists are talented. => This is true as some part of rectangle is covered with 'dots'.

Thus, conclusions II and IV follow.

QUESTION: 135

In each the following questions, which one of the given responses would be a meaningful order of the following?

1. Book
2. Pulp
3. Timber
4. Jungle (Forest)
5. Paper

Solution:

Timber (wood) is obtained from forest. Thus, forest will be at first position, then pulp is extracted. Then it is used to make paper, and books are formed by papers.

Thus, correct order is : Forest -> Timber -> Pulp -> Paper -> Book

≡ 4, 3, 2, 5, 1

Thus, Population -> Pollution -> Disease -> Death

≡ 2, 1, 4, 3

QUESTION: 137

Which number is wrong in the given series?

12439, 23549, 34659, 45769

Solution:

here we need to find the wrong number in 12439, 23549, 34659, 45769

as we will add the digits of every number

12439 : 1+2+3+4+9 = 19

23549 : 2+3+5+4+9 = 23

34659 : 3+4+6+5+9 = 27

45769 : 4+5+7+6+9 = 31

As we can see that in very case the sum of digits of number is a prime number except in case of 34659 and hence 34659 is the odd one out

QUESTION: 139

Identify the number at the bottom when the top is 5 in a dice.

Solution:

From the both positions of dice, it is clear that-
No. 6 has 2,3,4,5 as its adjacent faces.
Hence, 1 is opposite to 6.
Rotating the first dice along face containing No. 6, we get Second position of dice.
Hence, 4 is opposite to 3 and 2 is opposite to 5.
Hence, When 5 is at the top, 2 is at the bottom.
Therefore, Option A is correct.

QUESTION: 150

A word is represented by only one set of numbers as given in any one of the alternatives. The sets of numbers given in the alternatives are represented by two
classes of alphabets as in two matrices given below. The columns and rows of Matrix I are numbered from 0 to 4 and that of Matrix II are numbered from 5 to 9. A letter from these matrices can be represented first by its row and next by its column, e.g., ‘A’ can be represented by 01, 14 etc. and T can be represented by 55, 68 etc. Similarly, you have to identify the set for the word PERSON’.

Solution:

From matrix I and matrix II,
87=P.
11=E.
22=R.
24=S.
67=O.
04=N.
Hence, Option D is correct.

QUESTION: 151

A train travels 500 m in first minute. In the next 4 minutes, it travels in each minute 125 m more than that in the previous minute. The average speed per hour of the train during those 5 minutes will be

Solution:

Distance travelled by the train in the first minute = 500m

In the second minute = 500+125 = 625m

In the third minute = 625+125 = 750m

Similarly in the 4th and 5th minutes distance travelled will be 875m and 1000m respectively.

Total distance travelled = 500+625+750+875+1000 = 3750m = 3.75 km

QUESTION: 163

The distance between the centres of the two circles of radii r1, and r2 is d. They will touch each other internally if

Solution:

The distance between centres of two circles = d

Radius of both circles = r1 and r2

For the circles to touch each other internally,

Here, AC = r1 and BC = r2

Distance between their centres = AB = d

Now, clearly AB = AC - BC

=> d = r1-r2
