Solutions S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. The words can be either MAGNET or NET but can’t be both because letters are repeated. Hence, only one word can be formed.

S8. Ans. (b)
Sol. Each letter is replaced by the letter of its opposite face value in the alphabetical series. For example, ‘A’ is replaced by ‘Z’, ‘B’ is replaced by ‘Y’ and so on. Hence, MOBILE is coded as NLYROV.

S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. Each letter is moved two places backward in the alphabetical series. Hence, LUXURY is coded as JSVSPW.

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given word: ‘OFFICER’
After rearranging them in alphabetical order from left to right in such a way that vowels are arranged first followed by consonants: ‘EIOCFFR’
Hence, there are three letters in between O and R after the arrangement.

S11. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given Series – 695 523 724 476 367 936
After adding 1 = 696 524 725 477 368 937
Numbers divisible by 3 = 696 477

S12. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given Series = 695 523 724 476 367 936
After rearrangement = 569 235 247 467 367 369

S13. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given Series – 695 523 724 476 367 936
After rearrangement = 965 532 742 764 763 963
Required difference = 963 – 742 = 221

S14. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given Series – 695 523 724 476 367 936
After interchange= 965 253 274 746 637 396
Required sum = 965 + 253 = 1218
