Solutions

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. To make the expressions A β€ D and E > H definitely true,
A β€ B = C β€ D < E > F β₯ G β₯ H
Clearly, β€, β₯ will come in place of question mark (?).

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. To make the expressions P β₯ S and S < U definitely true,
P β₯ Q = R β₯ S β€ T < U = V
Clearly, β₯, β€ will come in place of question mark (?).

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. Conclusions: I. R = C β False
II. R < C β False
Hence, either conclusion I or II follows.

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. Conclusions: I. C < X β False
II. C = X β False
Hence, either conclusion I or II follows.

S5. Ans.(b):
Sol. Conclusions: I. G > R β False
II. Y < C β True

S6. Ans. (d)
Sol.

S7. Ans. (c)
Sol. Let we arrange β893642β in ascending order we get: 234689
Hence we observe that one number 6 retain its position when β893642β is rearranged in ascending order.
Let we arrange β893642β in descending order we get: 986432
Hence we observe that one number 2 retain its position when β893642β is rearranged in descending order.

S8. Ans. (e)
Sol. Meaning full word = sect
So, third letter of the meaningful word is C.

S9. Ans. (e)
Sol.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. TRANSDUCE β SQBMRCVBF
Hence, option (b) is the correct answer.

S11. Ans. (c)
Sol. If all the symbols are dropped, we will get:
A 5 D G 2 J E G N 1 7 L J 5 1 6 K P 2 4 V 5 6 2 S 5 M 6 P
Now, if starting thirteen elements are reversed, we will get:
J L 7 1 N G E J 2 G D 5 A 5 1 6 K P 2 4 V 5 6 2 S 5 M 6 P
Now, βGβ will be sixth from the left end.

S12. Ans. (b)
Sol. Two symbols are there which are immediately preceded by a digit and immediately followed by a letter =@ and &
A 5 @ D G # 2 J % \$ E G N 1 7 @ & L J 5 1 @ 6 K P & 2 \$ 4 V 5 6 @ 2 S 5 & M 6 P

S13. Ans. (c)
Sol. Third element from the left end = @
βEβ is 8th to the right of β@β.
β2β is 4th to the left of βEβ.

S14. Ans. (d)
Sol. If number 5 is inserted after every fifth element we will get seven letters which are immediately followed by 5.
A 5 @ D G 5 # 2 J % \$ 5 E G N 1 7 5 @ & L J 5 5 1 @ 6 K P5 & 2 \$ 4 V5 5 6 @ 2 S 5 5 & M 6 P 5

S15. Ans. (a)
Sol. Now, β@β is the sixth element from the left end of the arrangement. βGβ is the ninth element from the right end of the arrangement.
