# Reasoning Quiz For IBPS Clerk Mains 2023-11th October

Directions (1-4): There are two rows given and to find out the resultant of a particular row, we need to follow the particular steps:
Step I: If an even number is followed by an odd number, then resultant will be the difference of both the numbers.
Step II: If an odd number is followed by an even number (but not square of any number), then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.
Step III: If an odd number is followed by a square number (but not odd number), then the resultant will be the multiplication of both the numbers.
Step IV: If an even number is followed by another even number which is greater than 8, then the resultant will be the difference of both the numbers.
Step V: If an odd number is followed by another odd number, then the resultant will be the smallest number among the both the numbers.

Solutions

Solution (1-4):
S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 60.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 43.
Hence, required difference = 60 – 43 = 17.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. In row1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 8.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 23.
Hence, required multiplication = 8 x 23 = 184.

S3. Ans. (b)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 19.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 17.
Hence, required sum = 19 + 17 = 36.

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 11. So, Y = 11
In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 11.

Solution (5-8):
S5. Ans. (a)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 70.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 64.
Hence, required difference = 70 – 64 = 6.

S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 92.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 90.
Hence, required sum = 92 + 90 = 182.

S7. Ans. (c)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 40.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 160.
Hence, required half of the sum = 40 + 160 = 200/2 = 100.

S8. Ans. (a)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 39.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 63.
Hence, required multiplication = 39 x 63 = 2457.
