Series ‘J’ Solutions

Section : General English

1. (d) The blank requires the possessive form of the pronoun ‘me’ to be used. Hence, ‘mine’ would be the correct answer. The blank requires a conjunction that would mean ‘upto the time of’. Hence, ‘till’ would be appropriate. ‘Since’ is used for any action that has taken place from the past till now. Therefore we use the present perfect tense with the word ‘since’. Hence, ‘has changed’ would be the correct answer. ‘Dias’ is the name of a Portugese navigator who was the first to round the Cape Of Good Hope.It cannot be a specific word. Therefore, this spelling is incorrect and the correct spelling is ‘dais’ which means a raised platform, as in a lecture hall, for speakers or honored guests. ‘Superintendant’, ‘seive’ and ‘alloted’ are all spelt incorrectly. Their correct spellings are ‘superintendent’, ‘sieve’ and ‘allotted’. Only, ‘dissipate’ is the word with the correct spelling. Page : 1 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

The preposition ‘in’ is used for the names of land areas such as towns, cities, countries etc. Similarly, the preposition ‘at’ is used for specific addresses. Hence, ‘in’ should be used for ‘Bangaluru’ which is the name of a city and ‘at’ should be used for ‘115, Richmond Road’ which is the exact address of the person. So, option(b) is correct. ‘Euphemism’ means an inoffensive or indirect expression that is substituted for one that is considered offensive or too harsh. Hence, ‘aurally challenged’ is the euphemism used for the word ‘deaf’. ‘Error’ means a deviation from correctness or a mistake and ‘fault’ means a defect or imperfection. Hence, option (b) is the correct answer. ‘Flouted’ means to treat with disdain, scorn or contempt and suits the first blank. ‘Flaunted’ which means showing off, ‘ignored’ which means neglect are not suitable for the first blank. ‘Broken’ is anyways used as an adjective and hence cannot be used. ‘Virtually’ which means practically or nearly is also fit for the second blank. ‘The Outback’ is the specific name of a part of Australia. Hence, it should be within inverted commas. In the sentence given, ‘Rima’ is being used as the name that the other person is talking to regarding her desire to drive. Hence, the name should be separated by commas. Hence, there should be a comma before ‘Rima’ and after ‘Rima’. ‘Veracious’ means truthful or honest. Hence, option(d) is the correct answer. ‘Perturb’ means to disturb or agitate in a strong way. Hence, option(c) is the correct answer. ‘With a high hand’ means in an arrogant or dictatorial manner. Hence, ‘oppressively’ would be close in meaning to this particular idiom. ‘rack one's brains’ means to think long and hard. Hence, option(d) is the correct answer. The idiom ‘to get cold feet’ means to become very nervous or to lose courage. Hence, option (c) is appropriate. ‘To eat one's words’ means to retract or withdraw what one has said. Hence, option(b) is correct. Both sentences (1) and (4) mean the same that ‘they should have checked the tickets’. All the given answer options are not the opposite of the word ‘benevolence’ and therefore we need the opposite of the word ‘magnanimous’ which means generous in forgiving an insult or injury. Hence, ‘mean’ would be appropriate. Page : 2 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

‘Biannual’ means occuring twice a year. Hence, option(c) is correct. (Note: Directions of questions number 19 and 20 states that the question statement is a sentence. However, question statement in question 130 is not a sentence. It should be considered independent of the directions given). ‘temporal’, ‘ephemeral’ and ‘transient’ mean temporary or for a short duration. ‘Eternal’ means forever and hence, is odd word ‘Intra’ as in intravenous means within the vein. ‘ ……down train ‘ down is an adjective that modifies train. Only answer choice ‘a’ has this combination. gall means bile (noun). It also means something bitter to endure. Only option ‘b’ has this combination ‘an’ in statement 5 ‘look above…’ above is used as an adverb. Only option ‘a’ has that combination. ‘Idly and sambhar’ are taken as individual units which constitute a dish. Hence we will use phrasal verb ‘make up ‘ instead of ‘make’. no error objective form of indefinite pronoun 'who' should be used. objective personal pronoun is required and hence correct statement is 2 statement 1 has an error of misplaced modifier. Statement 2 is correct simple present tense will be used. Statements 5 and 4 make a mandatory pair. Statement 1 and 3 make a mandatory pair. The Para should start with 5 Statements a, b, c are incorrect as they lack tense consistency ‘apt’ means appropriate. ‘Considered’ means viewed with. ‘Able’ means capable. ‘Likely’ means possible and hence is the best fit ‘he hardly cares’ means that he doesn’t care. In the given blank we require a phrase, which conveys opposite sentiment. Hence ‘does he’ is appropriate. direct comparison, Hence, option (b) is a simile. Death is talked of as a person. Hence, personification is the answer. ‘ A way to deal with Frozen Feelings’. Passage talks about dealing with negative childhood experiences. Hence, answer is ‘a’. ‘…’glitch in learning process’ signifies breakdown. option choice ‘b’ is taken directly from the passage. Refer to Para 3, line 4.

41. (b) To get the sum as 15 on the uppermost face of dice thrown thrice times, the number of possibilities are as follows. (4, 5, 6), (4, 6, 5), (6, 4. 5), (6, 5, 4), (5, 6, 4), (5, 4, 6), (5, 5, 5), (3, 6, 6), (6, 3, 6) and (6, 6, 3) Total possibilities = 10 Favourable possibility = 2 2 1 Required probability = = 10 5 Hence, option (b) is the correct choice. Given that, for a total distance of 30 kms, the boat spends 2 hours in downstream and 6 hours in upstream. Let ‘B’ and ‘R’ be the speed of boat in still water and stream respectively. So, we can written here 15 B+R= … (i) 2 5 B–R= … (ii) 2 Solving (i) and (ii), we get 2B = 10 ⇒ B = 5 kms/ hour. All the five-digit numbers, formed by using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 without repletion, divisible by 4 will carry their last two digits as 12, 24, 32, 52. When the last digits are 12, the number of such five-digit number will be = 3 × 2 × 1=6 Similarly, for the last two digits to be 24, 32, and 52, the number of such fivedigits number will be 6 for each. Total numbers = 6 × 4 = 24 Number of five-digit numbers formed by 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 without repetition = 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120 24 1 The required possibility = = 120 5 Hence option (a) is the correct choice. According to the question, we have 23 × 20 + (sum of deviation) Mean = 20 23 × 20 × 70 = = 26.5 20 Hence, option (d) is the correct choice.

The percentage of gold is 80% in 50 gms of alloy. Therefore, we have 40 gms of gold and 10 gms of silver. Now as per the condition given, Let ‘x’ amount of gold is added in the alloy. 40 + x = 0.9 50 + x ⇒ x = 50 gms Hence, option (a) is the correct choice. Ratio of incomes = 7 : 3 Ratio of expenses = 5 : 2 Since each of them saves Rs. 300 per week, therefore we can write 7x – 5y = 300 … (i) 3x – 2y = 300 … (ii) Solving (i) and (ii), we get x = 900 Therefore, income of first person = 900 × 7 = Rs. 6300 Hence, option (c) is the correct choice. Similarly, we have Expenditure (E1) 24 × C1 where C1 is the initial consumption Later, we have Expenditure (E2) 27 × C2 where C2 is the new consumption Now E1 = E2, therefore, we have C1 27 C 24 = ⇒ 2 = C2 24 C1 27 3 × 100 = 11.1% 27 Hence, option (d) is the correct choice.

r ⇒ 1 = 1 + 100 ∴ 4 − t = 0 or t = 4 years. Note: This solution is based if we assume that compound interest is taken into account. If we take simple interest, then none of the answer choices will match. 52. (d) At the start of a game of cards J + B = 4T or J + B + T = 5T 1 or T = (J + B + T) …(i) 5 From equation (1), we can see that T is having option (d) is the correct choice. 53. (a) T +B + J T +B + J Initially J had Rs and at the end of the evening, J had . 4 3 T +B + J T +B + J T +B + J Therefore J had won = − = 3 4 12 Hence option (a) is the correct choice. Initially B had 11 (Total) 20 5 Finally B had (Total) 12 11 5 of total − of total = 200 20 12 ∴ Total = 1500 B initially had 325 1 rd of total money. Hence, 5

The maximum length of a pencil = 102 + 22 = 2 26 cm Hence, option (c) is the correct choice. 58. (c) The number of people who read at least one newspaper = 8.7 + 9.1 + 5.6 – (1.5 + 2 + 3) + 0.5 = 17.4 Hence, option (c) is the correct choice. The number of people who read only one newspaper = 4.7 + 4.6 + 2.6 = 11.9 Hence, option (b) is the correct choice. Let x be Sonali’s monthly income. 30% of x = 12,750 ⇒ x = Rs. 42,500 Let ‘x’ kg of tea worth Rs. 25 per kg be blended with 30 kgs of tea worth Rs. 30 per kgs. So, we have 25x + 30 × 30 = 27.27 x + 30 ⇒ x = 36 kg Wrong question 0.85G + 0.7B = 0.75 (G + B) ⇒ 2G = B (i) Also G + B = 80 (ii) Solving (i) and (ii), given non-integral number of girls. Which is not possible. According to the question, 300 gm of salt solution has 120 gms salt and rest as liquid. Let ‘x’ gm be added to make 50% salt solution. So we have 120 + x 1 = ⇒ x = 60 gms 300 + x 2 Hence, option (b) is the correct choice. The required number = 192 = 24 8 Hence, option (d) is the correct choice.

The question mark will be replaced by ∆ of colour black slide the colour shifts in taken from the figure at the immediate right position. Also the triangle carries the ‘c’ denotion in all the rows. Hence, option (b) is the correct choice. All the five-digit number formed by 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 will be divisible by 3 since 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15 is divisible by 3. The number of such five-digit number = 5! = 120. Also, these five-digit numbers cannot be 0 and 3 at a time in a number. So, the number of such numbers = 4 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 96 Total such five-digit numbers = 120 + 96 = 216 Hence, option (c) is the correct choice. As per the condition given, we have 3 105 × 25 × 8 × m × 25 × 9 2 ⇒ m = 140 Additional men = 140 – 105 = 35 Hence, option (c) is the correct choice. A → 8 days B → 3 days LCM of (8, 3) is 24 (As B is demolisher) 4 day – A will complete 12 units 2 days – A and B will complete –10 units Therefore 22 units still need to be completed 22 Hence A will complete in days. 3 Hence, option (d) is the answer. Given that a – ar = 12 (1) 2 3 ar – ar = 48 (2) Dividing (1) by (2), we get 1− r 12 = 2 r (1 − r) 48 ⇒ r 2 = 4 ⇒ r = ±2 For r = ±2 , we get a = –12 or 4 The conditions satisfy for a = –12.

121. (b) Only the 'option b' satisfies the very first condition where 'A gives B and C a many tractors as they already have'. Analysing option b Step 1 : A gives B and C a many tractors as they already have So now A, B and C will have (in that order) 6, 42 and 24 tractors Step 2 : B gives A and C a many tractors as they already have So now A, B and C will have (in that order) 12, 12 and 48 tractors Step 3 : C gives B and A a many tractors as they already have So now A, B and C will have (in that order) 24, 24 and 24 tractors Clearly the option b satisfies. Option (a) is incorrect as it is not necessary that a desktop publisher career requires skills in reading, communication, and mathematics. It is general statement given about the new jobs. Following the same logic, we can reject option (c) as well. Option (d) is incorrect as it talks about all the new jobs. According to the question statement, it is true only for most of the ‘new jobs’ and not all the jobs. Option (b) is the correct answer as it represents the information given in the question statement correctly. The question statement clearly states that ‘without the use of crop ………………. by more than 50 percent’. But this does not imply that use of crop protection products to control insects, weeds and diseases, will ensure that production cannot fall below 50 percent. Hence, option (d) cannot be validly concluded. Options (a) is not the correct choice as it can be validly concluded from the information given in the question. In first line it is clearly given that ‘without the use of crop……………..more than 50 percent.’ Options (b) and (c) can be concluded from the question statement. It can be represented through following diagram:

Hence, option (b) is the correct answer Option (c) is incorrect choice, as if Evelyn is correct about Lou’s argument, this does not make Evelyn’s conclusion well supported. Option (d) is not the correct choice, as if Evelyn is mistaken about Lou’s argument, does not prove that Evelyn’s conclusion as false. Page : 12 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

The argument given in the question statement can be weakened by proving that the planes are safer than the cars. Option (a) is not the correct choice, as more inspection of planes does not guarantee that planes safer than cars. Following the same logic, one cannot prove that the planes are safer than the cars. Option (d) is not the correct choice as even if the air traffic controller is at fault, this does not make the planes safer than the cars. Option (b) is the correct answer as it implies that the proportion of car accidents is greater than the proportion of planes accidents. From the chart it is evident that industry B and C contributes to company S. Industry B processes element 4, 5 and 6 which are also processed by other industries. It is not possible to determine the percentage share of industry B. So answer must be cannot be determined. Industry A processes all 6 elements. Total production of these 6 elements is 100,000. Decrease is an antonym of increase. Similarly, ascend is the opposite of descend. Hence, Option (b) ‘RB’ is the correct answer. The actual answer would be ‘BR’ but it seems that the test makers put it as ‘RB’ inadvertently. Modern and ancient are antonyms. Similarly, fashion as young and old are antonyms. Hence, option (a) ‘AQ’ is the correct answer. Part and whole are related in the similar fashion as class and school are. Hence, option (b) ‘BQ’ is the correct answer. Summit and apex have relationship of synonyms. Similarly, beautiful and pretty have relationship of synonyms. Hence, the correct answer is option (a) ‘AQ’. B E A U T I F U L 5 7 3 0 4 1 2 0 8 B U T T E R 5 0 4 4 7 9 Therefore, F = 2, U = 0, T = 4, U = 0, R = 9 and E = 7 Hence, code of FUTURE is 204097.

12 102 can be written as 17 × 2 10 So '?' must be 15 × = 75 2 336 can be written as 2 × 12 × 14 So '?' must be 2 × 15 × 16 = 480 From statement III we can conclude that G must be in the other boat as B is there in the given boat. One case that satisfies the given conditions is Boat 1 – F, B, D and C Boat 2 – A, E and G All other three options are false according to the above case. If E gets the boat with F then A must get the same boat (Statement I) Now G cannot be in the other boat as then both C and B will have to be in the same boat as E and F. (hence violating the condition by Statement IV) So correct arrangement must be Boat 1 – E, F, A and G Boat 2 – C, D and B 'option d' must be correct. From left figure to right figure, number of both horizontal and vertical lines are decreasing by one. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer. From left figure to right figure, dots remain at the same side but sticks go in opposite side and get inverted. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer. First letter of each term is increasing by 3 in position number. Similarly, 2nd, 3rd and 4th letters are increasing by 3 in position numbers. Therefore, MSYE is the 4th term. Hence, option (a) is the correct answer. For Mohan Cost due to STD calls = Rs. 45 to Rs. 60 Cost due to Local calls = 30(2) + 40(1) + 30(1) = 130 Overall cost ranges between Rs. 175 and Rs. 190. For Rohan Cost due to STD calls = Rs. 27 to Rs. 36 Cost due to Local calls = 36(1) + 48(2) + 36(1) = 168 Overall cost ranges between Rs. 195 and Rs. 204. So Rohan definitely would have spent more than Mohan Let us analyse each option 'option a' Initial cost = Rs. 38 × 1.5 = Rs. 57 Cost according to new SMS scheme = Rs. 35 + Rs. 38 × 0.60 = Rs. 57.80 'option b' Initial cost = Rs. 40 × 1.5 = Rs. 60 Page : 14 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

Series ‘J’ Solutions

Section : General English

1. (d) The blank requires the possessive form of the pronoun ‘me’ to be used. Hence, ‘mine’ would be the correct answer. The blank requires a conjunction that would mean ‘upto the time of’. Hence, ‘till’ would be appropriate. ‘Since’ is used for any action that has taken place from the past till now. Therefore we use the present perfect tense with the word ‘since’. Hence, ‘has changed’ would be the correct answer. ‘Dias’ is the name of a Portugese navigator who was the first to round the Cape Of Good Hope.It cannot be a specific word. Therefore, this spelling is incorrect and the correct spelling is ‘dais’ which means a raised platform, as in a lecture hall, for speakers or honored guests. ‘Superintendant’, ‘seive’ and ‘alloted’ are all spelt incorrectly. Their correct spellings are ‘superintendent’, ‘sieve’ and ‘allotted’. Only, ‘dissipate’ is the word with the correct spelling. Page : 1 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

The preposition ‘in’ is used for the names of land areas such as towns, cities, countries etc. Similarly, the preposition ‘at’ is used for specific addresses. Hence, ‘in’ should be used for ‘Bangaluru’ which is the name of a city and ‘at’ should be used for ‘115, Richmond Road’ which is the exact address of the person. So, option(b) is correct. ‘Euphemism’ means an inoffensive or indirect expression that is substituted for one that is considered offensive or too harsh. Hence, ‘aurally challenged’ is the euphemism used for the word ‘deaf’. ‘Error’ means a deviation from correctness or a mistake and ‘fault’ means a defect or imperfection. Hence, option (b) is the correct answer. ‘Flouted’ means to treat with disdain, scorn or contempt and suits the first blank. ‘Flaunted’ which means showing off, ‘ignored’ which means neglect are not suitable for the first blank. ‘Broken’ is anyways used as an adjective and hence cannot be used. ‘Virtually’ which means practically or nearly is also fit for the second blank. ‘The Outback’ is the specific name of a part of Australia. Hence, it should be within inverted commas. In the sentence given, ‘Rima’ is being used as the name that the other person is talking to regarding her desire to drive. Hence, the name should be separated by commas. Hence, there should be a comma before ‘Rima’ and after ‘Rima’. ‘Veracious’ means truthful or honest. Hence, option(d) is the correct answer. ‘Perturb’ means to disturb or agitate in a strong way. Hence, option(c) is the correct answer. ‘With a high hand’ means in an arrogant or dictatorial manner. Hence, ‘oppressively’ would be close in meaning to this particular idiom. ‘rack one's brains’ means to think long and hard. Hence, option(d) is the correct answer. The idiom ‘to get cold feet’ means to become very nervous or to lose courage. Hence, option (c) is appropriate. ‘To eat one's words’ means to retract or withdraw what one has said. Hence, option(b) is correct. Both sentences (1) and (4) mean the same that ‘they should have checked the tickets’. All the given answer options are not the opposite of the word ‘benevolence’ and therefore we need the opposite of the word ‘magnanimous’ which means generous in forgiving an insult or injury. Hence, ‘mean’ would be appropriate. Page : 2 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

‘Biannual’ means occuring twice a year. Hence, option(c) is correct. (Note: Directions of questions number 19 and 20 states that the question statement is a sentence. However, question statement in question 130 is not a sentence. It should be considered independent of the directions given). ‘temporal’, ‘ephemeral’ and ‘transient’ mean temporary or for a short duration. ‘Eternal’ means forever and hence, is odd word ‘Intra’ as in intravenous means within the vein. ‘ ……down train ‘ down is an adjective that modifies train. Only answer choice ‘a’ has this combination. gall means bile (noun). It also means something bitter to endure. Only option ‘b’ has this combination ‘an’ in statement 5 ‘look above…’ above is used as an adverb. Only option ‘a’ has that combination. ‘Idly and sambhar’ are taken as individual units which constitute a dish. Hence we will use phrasal verb ‘make up ‘ instead of ‘make’. no error objective form of indefinite pronoun 'who' should be used. objective personal pronoun is required and hence correct statement is 2 statement 1 has an error of misplaced modifier. Statement 2 is correct simple present tense will be used. Statements 5 and 4 make a mandatory pair. Statement 1 and 3 make a mandatory pair. The Para should start with 5 Statements a, b, c are incorrect as they lack tense consistency ‘apt’ means appropriate. ‘Considered’ means viewed with. ‘Able’ means capable. ‘Likely’ means possible and hence is the best fit ‘he hardly cares’ means that he doesn’t care. In the given blank we require a phrase, which conveys opposite sentiment. Hence ‘does he’ is appropriate. direct comparison, Hence, option (b) is a simile. Death is talked of as a person. Hence, personification is the answer. ‘ A way to deal with Frozen Feelings’. Passage talks about dealing with negative childhood experiences. Hence, answer is ‘a’. ‘…’glitch in learning process’ signifies breakdown. option choice ‘b’ is taken directly from the passage. Refer to Para 3, line 4.

Given that, for a total distance of 30 kms, the boat spends 2 hours in downstream and 6 hours in upstream. Let ‘B’ and ‘R’ be the speed of boat in still water and stream respectively. So, we can written here 15 B+R= … (i) 2 5 B–R= … (ii) 2 Solving (i) and (ii), we get 2B = 10 ⇒ B = 5 kms/ hour. All the five-digit numbers, formed by using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 without repletion, divisible by 4 will carry their last two digits as 12, 24, 32, 52. When the last digits are 12, the number of such five-digit number will be = 3 × 2 × 1=6 Similarly, for the last two digits to be 24, 32, and 52, the number of such fivedigits number will be 6 for each. Total numbers = 6 × 4 = 24 Number of five-digit numbers formed by 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 without repetition = 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120 24 1 The required possibility = = 120 5 Hence option (a) is the correct choice.

The percentage of gold is 80% in 50 gms of alloy. Therefore, we have 40 gms of gold and 10 gms of silver. Now as per the condition given, Let ‘x’ amount of gold is added in the alloy. 40 + x = 0.9 50 + x ⇒ x = 50 gms Hence, option (a) is the correct choice. Ratio of incomes = 7 : 3 Ratio of expenses = 5 : 2 Since each of them saves Rs. 300 per week, therefore we can write 7x – 5y = 300 … (i) 3x – 2y = 300 … (ii) Solving (i) and (ii), we get x = 900 Therefore, income of first person = 900 × 7 = Rs. 6300 Hence, option (c) is the correct choice. Similarly, we have Expenditure (E1) 24 × C1 where C1 is the initial consumption Later, we have Expenditure (E2) 27 × C2 where C2 is the new consumption Now E1 = E2, therefore, we have C1 27 C 24 = ⇒ 2 = C2 24 C1 27 3 × 100 = 11.1% 27 Hence, option (d) is the correct choice.

Analysing option b Step 1 : A gives B and C a many tractors as they already have So now A, B and C will have (in that order) 6, 42 and 24 tractors Step 2 : B gives A and C a many tractors as they already have So now A, B and C will have (in that order) 12, 12 and 48 tractors Step 3 : C gives B and A a many tractors as they already have So now A, B and C will have (in that order) 24, 24 and 24 tractors Clearly the option b satisfies. Option (a) is incorrect as it is not necessary that a desktop publisher career requires skills in reading, communication, and mathematics. It is general statement given about the new jobs. Following the same logic, we can reject option (c) as well. Option (d) is incorrect as it talks about all the new jobs. According to the question statement, it is true only for most of the ‘new jobs’ and not all the jobs. Option (b) is the correct answer as it represents the information given in the question statement correctly. The question statement clearly states that ‘without the use of crop ………………. by more than 50 percent’. But this does not imply that use of crop protection products to control insects, weeds and diseases, will ensure that production cannot fall below 50 percent. Hence, option (d) cannot be validly concluded. Options (a) is not the correct choice as it can be validly concluded from the information given in the question. In first line it is clearly given that ‘without the use of crop……………..more than 50 percent.’ Options (b) and (c) can be concluded from the question statement. It can be represented through following diagram:

124. (b) Evelyn accepts that Lou’s premises are true. This justifies Lou’s conclusion. Hence, the conclusion that Evelyn gave is unwarranted. Hence, option (b) is the correct answer Option (c) is incorrect choice, as if Evelyn is correct about Lou’s argument, this does not make Evelyn’s conclusion well supported. Option (d) is not the correct choice, as if Evelyn is mistaken about Lou’s argument, does not prove that Evelyn’s conclusion as false. Page : 12 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

(b)

The argument given in the question statement can be weakened by proving that the planes are safer than the cars. Option (a) is not the correct choice, as more inspection of planes does not guarantee that planes safer than cars. Following the same logic, one cannot prove that the planes are safer than the cars. Option (d) is not the correct choice as even if the air traffic controller is at fault, this does not make the planes safer than the cars. Option (b) is the correct answer as it implies that the proportion of car accidents is greater than the proportion of planes accidents. From the chart it is evident that industry B and C contributes to company S. Industry B processes element 4, 5 and 6 which are also processed by other industries. It is not possible to determine the percentage share of industry B. So answer must be cannot be determined. Industry A processes all 6 elements. Total production of these 6 elements is 100,000. Decrease is an antonym of increase. Similarly, ascend is the opposite of descend. Hence, Option (b) ‘RB’ is the correct answer. The actual answer would be ‘BR’ but it seems that the test makers put it as ‘RB’ inadvertently. Modern and ancient are antonyms. Similarly, fashion as young and old are antonyms. Hence, option (a) ‘AQ’ is the correct answer. Part and whole are related in the similar fashion as class and school are. Hence, option (b) ‘BQ’ is the correct answer. Summit and apex have relationship of synonyms. Similarly, beautiful and pretty have relationship of synonyms. Hence, the correct answer is option (a) ‘AQ’. B E A U T I F U L 5 7 3 0 4 1 2 0 8 B U T T E R 5 0 4 4 7 9 Therefore, F = 2, U = 0, T = 4, U = 0, R = 9 and E = 7 Hence, code of FUTURE is 204097.

12 102 can be written as 17 × 2 10 So '?' must be 15 × = 75 2 336 can be written as 2 × 12 × 14 So '?' must be 2 × 15 × 16 = 480 From statement III we can conclude that G must be in the other boat as B is there in the given boat. One case that satisfies the given conditions is Boat 1 – F, B, D and C Boat 2 – A, E and G All other three options are false according to the above case. If E gets the boat with F then A must get the same boat (Statement I) Now G cannot be in the other boat as then both C and B will have to be in the same boat as E and F. (hence violating the condition by Statement IV) So correct arrangement must be Boat 1 – E, F, A and G Boat 2 – C, D and B 'option d' must be correct. From left figure to right figure, number of both horizontal and vertical lines are decreasing by one. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer. From left figure to right figure, dots remain at the same side but sticks go in opposite side and get inverted. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer. First letter of each term is increasing by 3 in position number. Similarly, 2nd, 3rd and 4th letters are increasing by 3 in position numbers. Therefore, MSYE is the 4th term. Hence, option (a) is the correct answer. For Mohan Cost due to STD calls = Rs. 45 to Rs. 60 Cost due to Local calls = 30(2) + 40(1) + 30(1) = 130 Overall cost ranges between Rs. 175 and Rs. 190. For Rohan Cost due to STD calls = Rs. 27 to Rs. 36 Cost due to Local calls = 36(1) + 48(2) + 36(1) = 168 Overall cost ranges between Rs. 195 and Rs. 204. So Rohan definitely would have spent more than Mohan Let us analyse each option 'option a' Initial cost = Rs. 38 × 1.5 = Rs. 57 Cost according to new SMS scheme = Rs. 35 + Rs. 38 × 0.60 = Rs. 57.80 'option b' Initial cost = Rs. 40 × 1.5 = Rs. 60 Page : 14 Corporate Head Office Career Launcher India Limited.

Cost according to new SMS scheme = Rs. 35 + Rs. 40 × 0.60 = Rs. 59.00 'option c' Initial cost = Rs. 60 × 1.5 = Rs. 90 Cost according to new SMS scheme = Rs. 35 + Rs. 60 × 0.60 = Rs. 71.00 'option d' Initial cost = Rs. 59 × 1.5 = Rs. 88.50 Cost according to new SMS scheme = Rs. 35 + Rs. 59 × 0.60 = Rs. 70.40 A person sending 38 local SMS (option a) a month won't benefit. 144. (d) From option b Cost due to STD calls = Rs. 48.50 Cost due to local calls = Alt least Rs. 55 Cost due to price of plan = Rs. 99 Total bill must be more than that of Rs.199/Month. 20% of his ISD bill came from calling ‘USA, Canada, Europe (Fixed Line)’ and ‘Gulf, Europe (Mobile), SAARC’ combined. Between the two it cannot be determined to which ISD call for the minimum duration were made. Average demand of five companies = 3000 + 600 + 2500 + 1200 + 10600 = 2120 5 Average production of five companies = 1500 + 1800 + 1000 + 2700 + 9200 = 1840 5 Required difference = 2120 – 1840 = 280 147. 148.
