Which number should come next in the series?1-1-2-3-5-8-13
Correct Answer
C. 21
Explanation
The series is formed by adding the two previous numbers to get the next number. Starting with 1 and 1, we add them to get 2. Then, we add 1 and 2 to get 3, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series should be obtained by adding 8 and 13, which equals 21.

Mary, who is sixteen years old, is four times as old as her brother.
How old will Mary be when she is twice as old as her brother?
Correct Answer
B. 24
Explanation
Mary is currently 16 years old and four times as old as her brother. This means her brother is 16/4 = 4 years old. To find out how old Mary will be when she is twice as old as her brother, we need to double her brother's age. Since her brother is currently 4 years old, we double that to get 4 x 2 = 8 years. Therefore, Mary will be 8 years older than her brother when she is twice as old as him. Adding 8 years to Mary's current age of 16, we get 16 + 8 = 24 years. So, Mary will be 24 years old when she is twice as old as her brother.

Which one of the five choices makes the best comparison?Finger is to Hand as Leaf is to:
Correct Answer
C. Branch
Explanation
The best comparison between "Finger is to Hand" and "Leaf is to Branch" is that a finger is a part of a hand, just like a leaf is a part of a branch.

Choose the number that is 1/4 of 1/2 of 1/5 of 200:
Correct Answer
B. 5
Explanation
To find 1/4 of 1/2 of 1/5 of 200, we can start by finding 1/5 of 200, which is 40. Then, we find 1/2 of 40, which is 20. Finally, we find 1/4 of 20, which is 5. Therefore, the number that is 1/4 of 1/2 of 1/5 of 200 is 5.

John needs 13 bottles of water from the store. John can only carry 3 at
a time. What's the minimum number of trips John needs to make to the
store?
Correct Answer
D. 5
Explanation
John needs 13 bottles of water from the store and can only carry 3 at a time. To determine the minimum number of trips John needs to make, we can divide the total number of bottles by the number of bottles he can carry in one trip. In this case, 13 divided by 3 equals 4 with a remainder of 1. Since John cannot carry the remaining 1 bottle in the same trip, he needs to make an additional trip. Therefore, the minimum number of trips John needs to make to the store is 5.

If all Bloops are Razzies and all Razzies are Lazzies, then all Bloops are definitely Lazzies?
Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
If all Bloops are Razzies and all Razzies are Lazzies, it can be concluded that all Bloops are Lazzies. This is because if all members of a group (Bloops) are also members of another group (Razzies), and all members of that second group (Razzies) are also members of a third group (Lazzies), then it follows that all members of the first group (Bloops) are also members of the third group (Lazzies). Therefore, it can be determined that all Bloops are definitely Lazzies.

Ralph likes 25 but not 24; he likes 400 but not 300; he likes 144 but not 145. Which does he like:
Correct Answer
E. 1600
Explanation
Ralph's pattern of liking numbers seems to be that he likes numbers that are perfect squares. He likes 25 (5^2), 400 (20^2), and 144 (12^2), but not 24 (not a perfect square), 300 (not a perfect square), or 145 (not a perfect square). Therefore, he would like the number 1600 (40^2), as it is a perfect square.

What is the missing number in the sequence shown below?1 - 8 - 27 - ? - 125 - 216
Correct Answer
D. 64
Explanation
The sequence is formed by taking the cubes of consecutive numbers. The first number is 1, which is equal to 1^3. The second number is 8, which is equal to 2^3. The third number is 27, which is equal to 3^3. The fourth number is missing, but it can be found by taking the cube of the next consecutive number, which is 4. So, the missing number is 4^3 = 64. The sequence continues with 125 and 216, which are the cubes of 5 and 6 respectively.
