1.
What should come next in the sequence;
1, 3, 5, 7,?
Correct Answer
D. 9
Explanation
The given sequence follows a pattern of adding 2 to each number to get the next number. Starting with 1, adding 2 gives 3, then adding 2 again gives 5, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the sequence would be 7 + 2 = 9.
2.
Which should come next in the sequence;
28 , 19 , 10 , ?
Correct Answer
C. 1
Explanation
The sequence is decreasing by 9 each time. Starting from 28, subtracting 9 gives 19, subtracting 9 again gives 10. Therefore, subtracting 9 from 10 would give 1 as the next number in the sequence.
3.
Which should come next in the sequence;
A, C, E, G,?
Correct Answer
B. I
Explanation
The sequence follows an alphabetical pattern, with each letter being skipped. Starting with A, the next letter is C, then E, then G. Following this pattern, the next letter should be I.
4.
Which should come next in the sequence;
1 , 3 , 6 , 10 , ?
Correct Answer
D. 15
Explanation
The sequence follows a pattern where each number is obtained by adding the next consecutive number in the sequence. Starting with 1, add 2 to get 3, add 3 to get 6, add 4 to get 10. Therefore, the next number should be obtained by adding 5 to 10, resulting in 15.
5.
Which number should replace?
1 , 4 , ? , 7
Correct Answer
B. 6
Explanation
The given sequence is 1, 4, ?, 7. Looking at the pattern, it appears that each number is increasing by 3. Therefore, the missing number should be 4 + 3 = 7. However, this contradicts the last number in the sequence which is already 7. Hence, the missing number should be the average of the previous two numbers, which is 5.5. Therefore, the correct answer is 5.5.
6.
Which set of letters and numbers would follow the same logic as the ones listed below?
[A25]
[H18]
[Z0]
Correct Answer
B. [P10]
Explanation
The logic behind the given set of letters and numbers is that the letter represents the position in the alphabet, and the number represents the number of letters in the word. For example, A is the first letter in the alphabet and there are 25 letters in the word "twenty-five," so it is represented as [A25]. Following the same logic, the letter P is the 16th letter in the alphabet and there are 10 letters in the word "ten," so it would be represented as [P10].

If 3 apples and 1 banana cost 70 pence, and 3 bananas and 1 apple cost 50 pence, then what are the price of 1 apple and 1 banana?
Correct Answer
A. 30 pence
Explanation
Let the price of 1 apple be A pence and the price of 1 banana be B pence.
From the given information, we can form the following equations:
3A + B = 70 (Equation 1)
A + 3B = 50 (Equation 2)
To solve these equations, we can multiply Equation 1 by 3 and Equation 2 by 1, and then subtract Equation 2 from Equation 1:
9A + 3B = 210
-(A + 3B = 50)
-----------------
8A = 160
Dividing both sides by 8, we get:
A = 20
Substituting the value of A into Equation 1:
3(20) + B = 70
60 + B = 70
B = 10
Therefore, the price of 1 apple is 20 pence and the price of 1 banana is 10 pence.

312:: 5
543:: 23
329:: 15
Which analogy below follows the same logic?
Correct Answer
B. 213 :: 5
Explanation
In the given analogy, the first number in each pair is reversed and the second number is the square of the sum of the digits of the reversed number. Applying the same logic to the answer choices, we find that reversing 213 gives 312, and the sum of its digits is 2+1+3=6. The square of 6 is 36, which matches the second number in the analogy. Therefore, the analogy 213 :: 5 follows the same logic as the given analogy.

(111) (248) (3927) (41664) (?)
Replace?
Correct Answer
B. 525125
Explanation
The pattern in the given sequence is that each number is obtained by multiplying the digits of the previous number. In the first number, 1*1*1 = 1. In the second number, 2*4*8 = 64. In the third number, 3*9*2*7 = 378. In the fourth number, 4*1*6*6*4 = 1536. Therefore, the missing number should be obtained by multiplying the digits of the fourth number, which is 5*2*5*1*2*5 = 1250.
