# Reasoning Ability Quiz For SBI Clerk Mains 2022- 27th December

Directions (1-5): Answer the questions based on the information given below. In every question two rows are given and to find out the resultant of the particular row you need to follow the following steps:
Step 1: If an odd number is followed by an odd number (not prime number), then the resultant will be the smaller of two numbers.
Step 2: If an odd number is followed by an odd/even prime number, then the resultant will be the product of two numbers.
Step 3: If an even number is followed by an even number, then the resultant will be the absolute difference of two numbers.
Step 4: If an odd number is followed by an even number, then the resultant will be the addition of two numbers.
Step 5: If an even number is followed by an odd number, then the resultant will be the remainder, when the greater number is divided by the smaller number.

Solutions

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 45.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 9.
Hence, required sum = 45 + 9 = 54.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 2.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 117.

S3. Ans. (b)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 12. So, K = 12.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 189.

S4. Ans. (d)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 2.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 4.
Hence, required multiplication = 2 x 4 = 8.

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 27.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 30.
Hence, required difference = 30 – 27 = 3.

S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. The given word – CONJUNCTIVELY
After dropping the letters ‘C’ & ‘N’ the new word is ‘OJUTIVELY’.
There are six such pairs i.e., IL, EJ, TY, TU, VY and TV, which have as many letters between them as in the alphabetical series.

S10. Ans. (a)
Sol. The given word – MORNING
After interchanging the vowels and consonants of the given word – LPQMJMF
Now, rearranging all the letters according to the English alphabetical series – FJLMMPQ
Hence, there are three number of letters between the third letter from the left i.e. ‘L’ and second letter from the right i.e., “P” in the English alphabetic series.

S11. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given number: 3687156492
After rearrangement we get: 3788166593
