2. A pie can be cut into more than seven pieces by making four diameter cuts.
Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
By making four diameter cuts in a pie, each cut divides the pie into two halves. Therefore, the first cut divides the pie into two pieces, the second cut divides each half into two pieces (totaling four pieces), the third cut divides each quarter into two pieces (totaling eight pieces), and the fourth cut divides each eighth into two pieces (totaling sixteen pieces). Therefore, it is possible to cut a pie into more than seven pieces with four diameter cuts. Hence, the answer is true.

If ‘PAINTER’ is coded as ‘3528617’ which is the correct code for ‘TANRPEI’?
Correct Answer
A. 6587312
Explanation
The given code for 'PAINTER' is obtained by assigning a unique number to each letter based on its position in the English alphabet (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.). Applying the same logic, the code for 'TANRPEI' would be '6587312'.

If ‘MADRAS’ is coded as ‘56’, how can ‘CALCUTTA’ be coded
Correct Answer
C. 81
Explanation
The code for 'MADRAS' is obtained by assigning each letter a number based on its position in the English alphabet (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.) and adding up the numbers for each letter. So, M=13, A=1, D=4, R=18, A=1, S=19. Adding these numbers gives us 13+1+4+18+1+19=56. Applying the same logic to 'CALCUTTA', we have C=3, A=1, L=12, C=3, U=21, T=20, T=20, A=1. Adding these numbers gives us 3+1+12+3+21+20+20+1=81. Therefore, the code for 'CALCUTTA' is 81.

The next digit in the series 6, 4, 3, 12/5, will be:
Correct Answer
D. 2
Explanation
The series follows a pattern where each subsequent number is obtained by dividing the previous number by 2 and then adding 1. Starting with 6, we divide by 2 and add 1 to get 4. Then we divide 4 by 2 and add 1 to get 3. Continuing this pattern, we divide 3 by 2 and add 1 to get 12/5. Therefore, the next number in the series would be obtained by dividing 12/5 by 2 and adding 1, which equals 2.
