3. A river flows west to east and on the way turns left and go in a semi-circle round a hillock, and then turns left at right-angles. In what direction is the river finally flowing?
A.
North
B.

Explanation The river initially flows west to east. Then, it turns left and goes in a semi-circle around a hillock, which means it is now flowing in the opposite direction, i.e., east to west. After that, it turns left again at a right angle, which means it is now flowing in a north to south direction. Therefore, the river is finally flowing in the south direction.

4.A clock seen through a mirror, shows quarter past three. What is the correct time shown by the clock?
A.
3.15
B.
8.45
C.
9.15
D.
9.45
Correct Answer B. 8.45
Explanation When we see a clock through a mirror, the hour and minute hands appear to be reversed. In this case, the mirror image shows the time as quarter past three. So, if we reverse the hands to their correct positions, the time would be quarter past nine. However, the only option that matches this is 8.45, which is the mirror image of 9.15. Therefore, the correct time shown by the clock is 8.45.

Correct Answer B. 4.00
