2. A new species lays exactly 120 eggs out of which 50% are male and 50% are female. The female insect hatch and grow in a span of 20  days to lay eggs by themselves. On 1st May, 2019, an insect laid 120 eggs. How many eggs will be hatched, (approximately) by the end of June 2019?
(a) 216000
(b) 25920000
(c) 432000
(d) None of these
Ans.
(d)
Solution:
Eggs laid by insect on 1st May, 2019 are 120  eggs.
Number of males = (50/100) x 120 = 60
Number of females = × =  (50/100) x 120 = 60 Hence, total number of eggs hatched = 60 x 60 x 60 x 60 = 12960000

3. A + B means A is sister of B, A/B means A is  son of B, A = B means A is brother of B, A @ B means A is father of B.

4. In a certain code language, if INDIA is written as 95491, then JAPAN is written as
(a) 81815
(b) 11614
(c) 11715
(d) 101614
Ans.
(c)
Solution:
The alphabets from A to I are coded as numerals 1 to 9. The same trend starts from J to R and from S to Z. Hence, from the above codes, 5. If 1st June, 2013 is Saturday, then 1st June, 1981 is which of the following?
(a) Monday
(b) Tuesday
(c) Saturday
(d) Thursday
Ans.
(a)
Solution:
From 1st June, 2013 to 1st June, 1981 there are 32 years.
So, there are 32 odd days. The leap years between 1981 to 2013 are 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012
∴ Total = 8 years
Hence, the total number of odd days = (32 + 8) ÷ 7 = 40 ÷ 7 days = 5 odd days.
As 1st June, 2013 is Saturday. 1st June, 1981 will be 5 days behind Saturday that is Monday.

6. An unfolded dice is given above. Find the correct answer which can be formed by folding the unfolded dice.
(a) (b) (c) (d) Ans. (c)
Solution:
The opposite faces of the dice will be Hence, the dice formed will be 7. Fill in the missing block logically (a) 58
(b) 48
(c) 56
(d) 72
Ans. (c)
Solution:
63 – 43 = 216 – 64 = 152
23 – 13 = 8 – 1 = 7
53 – 33 = 125 – 27 = 98
43 – 23 = 64 – 8 = 56

8. Anurag’s grandfather has an old cuckoo clock. It takes 5 s for the cuckoo clock to chime 5 cuckoos. How long will it take to chime 10 cuckoos?
(a) 10 s
(b) 11 s
(c) 10: 25 s
(d) 11: 25 s
Ans.
(d)
Solution:
It takes 5 s for the cuckoo clock to chime 5  cuckoos. i.e. 1st cuckoo clock chimes at t = 0 s
5th cuckoo clock chimes at t = 5 s
Time interval = 5/4 s = 1.25 s
For the 9th chime = × = 9 x 1.25 = 11.25 seconds
Hence, the time taken to chime 10 cuckoos is  11: 25 s.

10. In a shouting game, Rohit and Shiv responded in the proportion of Ram and Shyam’s shouting.
Study the table and answer accordingly, what will come at the place of question mark(?) (a) 4
(b) 8
(c) 6
(d) 2
Ans. (c)
Solution:
At 9:00 am the ratio of shouting of Ram and Shyam is 1: 1, hence the responding of Rohit and Shiv is at a ratio of 1: 1. Similarly,  At 9: 15 am the ratio is 1: 2.
At 9: 30 am the ratio is 1: 3.
Hence, 1/3 = 2/x ⇒ x = 6

11. A statement is followed by two Courses of action I and II. Assume everything in the statement to be true. Decide which of the two given suggested courses of action logically follows for pursuing. Statement Since 2018, the bulk of India’s population has comprised of young working people, much more than the dependent population, children below 5 years of age and old people above 65 years of age. This trend will continue for the next 55 years.
Courses of Action
I. There will be a huge increase in the GDP of the country.

(a) None follows
(b) Only I follows
(c) Only II follows
(d) Both I and II follow
Ans.
(c)
Solution:

12. A clock gains 10 min a day. The clock was  corrected at 6:00 am. what will be the correct  time when the clock shows 11:00 am, following  day?
(a) 10: 48 am
(b) 11: 00 am
(c) 11: 45 am
(d) 10: 30 am
Ans. (a)
Solution:
Normal clock - in 24 h = 1440 min
Defective clock - in 24 h = 1450 min
From today’s 6 am to the following day 11:00 am. So, it will be 29 hours.
For the defective clock the minutes will be  29 60 1740  × = min Now, following the ratio pattern,
Normal clock – 1440      ?
Defective clock – 1450   1740
29 x 50   29 x 60
Ratio = 5 : 6
Making the equation:
5/6 = 1440/x
x = 1728 mins
1728 min = 28 h 48 min which will be 10:48 am.

13. Saddam takes 3 pills with a gap of 30 min. What is the minimum time by which Saddam will get rid of his pain?
(a) 90 min
(b) 60 min
(c) 58 min
(d) 100 min
Ans.
(b)
Solution:
Let the time at which pill is taken be ‘t’. So, first pill taken at t1 = 0 min, 2nd pill taken at t2 = 30 min  and 3rd pill taken at t3 = 60 min  Hence, after 60 min Saddam will get rid of his pain.

14. In a mobile manufacturing company 6 staff members packed 6 mobiles in 6 min. The management wants 60 mobile to be packed in 60 min. How many staff member in total are required?
(a) 60
(b) 360
(c) 600
(d) 6
Ans.
(d)
Solution:
M1T1/W1 = M2T2/W2
where, M = Number of men
T = Time taken for doing the work,
W = Work done
M1 = 6       M2 = k
T1 = 6 min T2 = 60 min
W1 = 6 mobiles W2 = 60 mobiles
∴ (6 x 6)/6 = (k x 60)/60
k = 6 staff members
Hence, 6 staff members in total are required to pack 60 mobiles in 60 min.

15. Choose the word that will complete the second pair in the same way as first pair.

16. Amar consumed 100 Sweets from Monday to Friday. Each day, he consumed 6 more Sweets than the previous day. How many Sweets did he consume on Wednesday?
(a) 12 Sweets
(b) 20 Sweets
(c) 24 Sweets
(d) 8 Sweets
Ans.
(b)
Solution:
The total Sweets consumed in the 5 days from Monday to Friday = 100
Let Sweets consumed on Monday = a
There is an increase of 6 Sweets in consumption from the previous day.
Therefore,
a + (a + 6) + (a + 12) + (a + 12) + (a + 18) + (a + 24) = 100
5a + 60 = 100
Sweets consumed on Monday is 8.
Sweets consumed on Wednesday =  8 + 12 = 20 Sweets

17. Find the missing term in the following series 0, 1, 2, 5, 20, 25,?,
157,
(a) 35
(b) 150

(c) 145
(d) 40
Ans.
(b)
Solution:
There is a pattern which is as follows:
0 + 1 = 1
1 x 2 = 2
2 + 3 = 5
5 x 4 = 20
20 + 5 = 25
25 x 6 = 150
Hence, option (b) is the answer.

22. Population of Honolulu (2 years ago) was 125000. Due to natural calamities people started migrating. So, population decreased at  the rate of 4% per annum. How many migrated  from this town in past 2 years?
(a) 115200
(b) 105000
(c) 9800

(d) None of these
Ans. (c)
Solution:
The population 2 yr ago = 125000
Decrease in population = 4% per annum
The present population of the town
(96/100) x (96/100) x 125000 = 115200
People migrated from the town in past 2 years = 125000 – 115200 = 9800

34. In a coded language LAUGH is written as 62 7 107 37 42, then SMILE will be written as (Note Do not include spaces in your answer.)
(a) 97 67 47 62 27
(b) 67 42 47 62 27
(c) 97 65 45 62 28
(d) 97 67 47 61 27

Ans. (a)
Solution:
LAUGH is written as 62 7 107 37 42 In the alphabetical series order.
L = 12 A = 1 U = 21 G = 7 H = 8
The pattern in this question is:
(n x 5) + 2
62 = 12 x 5 + 2
7 = 1 x 5 + 2
107 = 21 x 5 + 2
37 = 7 x 5 + 2
42 = 8 x 5 + 2
Similarly, S M I L E
S =19 M = 13  I = 9 L = 12 E = 5
19 x 5 + 2 = 97
13 x 5 + 2 = 67
9 x 5 + 2 = 47
12 x 5 + 2 = 62
5 x 5 + 2 = 27
Hence, the code for SMILE will be  97 67 47 62 27

35. If ‘+’ means ‘×’, ‘−’ means ‘÷’, ‘÷’ means ‘+’ and ‘×’  means ‘−’, then what will be the value of  16 ÷ 64 – 4 x 4 + 3 = ?
(a) 20
(b) 52
(c) 15
(d) 12
Sol.
(a)
Solution:
16 ÷ 64 – 4 x 4 + 3 = ?
16 + 64 ÷ 4 – 4 × 3  = ?
16 + 16 − 4 × 3 = ?
32 − 12  = ?
? = 20
