Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. No meaningful word is formed with the letter ‘A, B, T and K’.

S2. Ans. (c)
Sol. 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th letters of the given word are E, L, F and U.
So, two words can be formed – FLUE, FUEL

S3. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given Number – 3861574

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol.

S5. Ans. (a)
Sol. As per conditions, all consonants are written as their preceding letter and all vowels are written as their succeeding letters.
R E A S O N I N G – Q F B R P M J M F; We can see in new word, there is no vowel. Hence, required answer is none.

S6. Ans. (e)
Sol. Total pairs in PERCEIVED are more than four in both directions.

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given Number – 64793258
If 1 is subtracted from first four digits of the number and 1 is added to last four digits of the number – 53684369
Clearly, 3 and 6 are repetitive.

S8. Ans. (a)
Sol. Meaningful words ending with E = Perfume, Perfuse, Presume, Repulse, Supreme

S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. All the letters of COLD and FILE moved two places backward as in English alphabet. So, the word JUDICIARY is written as HSBGAGYPW.

S10. Ans. (a)
Sol. Digits in descending order = 87664421
3rd from left end = 6 and 4th from right end = 4
So, product = 6×4 = 24

S11. Ans. (c)
Sol. Only one word can be made from ITGLYU = GUILTY

S12. Ans. (a)
Sol. There is no pair.

S13. Ans. (d)
Sol. Specified letters are: S, T, R and I
Meaningful word: STIR
Hence second letter from the right end is I.

S14. Ans. (c)
Sol. First and the second letters are interchanged, third and the fourth letters are interchanged and then fifth and sixth letters are interchanged in the given word. Then letters at the even places are interchanged with their immediate succeeding letter to obtain the corresponding codes.
So, GROWNS = RHWPSO

S15. Ans. (b)
Sol. Meaningful words using T, R, R, P, O and E = Porter and Report
Word beginning with R = Report
So, 5th letter of the word = R
