Solution

Solutions (1-5): S1.Ans.(d)
S2.Ans.(c)
S3.Ans.(e)
S4.Ans.(a)
S5.Ans.(b)

Sol.(6-8):
Sol. Following logic/operations were performed to obtain the output.
For triangle 1- according to given logic for triangle 1 total number of letters between F and X is 17 which is a odd number so fax is changes to xaf.
For triangle 2- according to given logic for triangle 2 the addition of the given two digit is 5 so there is no change in the digits as it is equal to 5.
For triangle 3- according to given logic for triangle 3 total number of letters between J and Y is 14 which is an even number so joy is changes to ojy.
For triangle 4- according to given logic for triangle 4 difference between given two digits is 5-2=3, which is more than 2 so the number changes to (25-4)= 21. S6.Ans.(e)
Sol. There is no such meaningful word of six letters can be made using ‘xaf’ and ‘ojy’.
S7.Ans.(b)
Sol. The difference is (32-21)=11

S8.Ans.(a)

S9.Ans.(e) S10.Ans.(c)
Sol. From Statement I, Romil rank is 27th from the left and Jugail rank is (40-21+1)= 20th from the left. Then Romil is seven ranks to the right of Jugail.
Now, From statement II, Jugail rank is (45-22+1) = 24th from the left. Romil rank is (27+1) = 28th from the left, So Romil is four rank to the right of Jugail.
S11.Ans.(b)
Sol. From Statement II, it is given that G is the brother of R. K is the sister of N. A is married to K. J is only child of A and is married to G. So, we can say that G is son-in-law of K. Sol.(12-14):
Sol. S12.Ans.(b)
S13.Ans.(d)
S14.Ans.(e)

S15.Ans.(d)
Sol. For I: Yes, it can be assumed as it is mentioned clearly in the statement that SSC aspirants have decided to move towards banking field after getting fade up by paper leak of SSC, it means clearly that SSC management has not taken any proper action.
For II: Yes, it can be assumed as aspirants move to banking field by supposing that there will be no paper leak in banking examination.
For III: No, It cannot be assumed because this is regarding career in banking field which is not discussed in statement.
