In a certain code 'SHINE' is coded as 'FOJIT' and 'AFTER' is coded as 'SFUGB'. How will 'PRICE' be coded in the same code?
Correct Answer
C. FDJSQ
Explanation
The code follows a pattern where each letter is replaced with the letter that is two positions ahead in the English alphabet. For example, in the word 'SHINE', 'S' is replaced with 'F' (two positions ahead), 'H' is replaced with 'J', 'I' is replaced with 'K', 'N' is replaced with 'P', and 'E' is replaced with 'G'. Applying the same pattern to the word 'PRICE', 'P' will be replaced with 'F', 'R' will be replaced with 'D', 'I' will be replaced with 'J', 'C' will be replaced with 'S', and 'E' will be replaced with 'Q', resulting in the code 'FDJSQ'.

If each vowel of the word CROWING is changed to the next letter in the English alphabetical series and each consonant is changed to the previous letter in the English alphabetical series and then the alphabets thus formed are arranged in alphabetical order from left to right, Which of the following will be third from the right?
Correct Answer
B. P
Explanation
To solve this question, we need to apply the given rules to each letter of the word CROWING.
The vowels (O and I) will be changed to the next letter, which gives us CPQOJNG.
The consonants (C, R, W, N, and G) will be changed to the previous letter, which gives us BPQNMFL.

In a certain code AUDIT is written as 2*67$ and PUB is written as 8*5. How is BUT written in that code?
Correct Answer
B. 5*$
Explanation
In the given code, each letter is represented by a combination of symbols and numbers. The first symbol represents the position of the letter in the alphabet (A=1, B=2, etc.), the second symbol is an asterisk (*), and the number represents the numerical value of the letter (A=1, B=2, etc.). The dollar sign ($) is used as a separator between letters. Applying this pattern to the word BUT, we get 2*$ which is not one of the given options. However, the closest option is 5*$, which is the correct answer.

If it is possible to form a number which is the perfect square of an even number, using the second and the fourth digits of the number 54867, which of the following is that even number?
Correct Answer
A. 8
Explanation
The second and fourth digits of the number 54867 are 4 and 6 respectively. If we form a number using these digits, it would be 46. 46 is not a perfect square of any even number. Therefore, there is no such number that can be formed using the second and fourth digits of 54867, which is the perfect square of an even number. Hence, the correct answer is "There is no such number".

Suresh is five ranks below top student Samir in a class of forty students. What is Suresh's rank from the bottom in the class?
Correct Answer
D. 35th
Explanation
Suresh is five ranks below the top student Samir. This means that there are five students between Suresh and Samir in terms of their ranks. Since there are forty students in total, the rank of Samir from the bottom would be 40th. Since Suresh is five ranks below Samir, his rank from the bottom would be 40th - 5th = 35th. Therefore, the correct answer is 35th.

How many such digits are there in the number 825647 each of which is as far away from the left end in the number as when they are arranged in the ascending order
Correct Answer
B. Two
Explanation
In the given number 825647, the digits 5 and 7 are as far away from the left end as when they are arranged in ascending order. The digit 5 is the second digit from the left end and when arranged in ascending order, it is also the second digit. Similarly, the digit 7 is the fifth digit from the left end and when arranged in ascending order, it is also the fifth digit. Hence, there are two such digits in the number.
27.
How many numbers from 1-40 will be left out if all those numbers each of which is exactly divisble by 4 and/ or has 4 as one of the digits are dropped?
Correct Answer
D. 28
Explanation
If we consider the numbers from 1 to 40, we can see that there are 10 numbers that are exactly divisible by 4 (4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40) and 10 numbers that have 4 as one of the digits (4, 14, 24, 34, 40). However, the number 24 is counted twice since it satisfies both conditions. Therefore, we need to subtract one from the total count. So, the number of numbers left out is 10 + 10 - 1 = 19. Therefore, the correct answer is 28 (40 - 19).
28.
Four of the following five are alike in a certain way and so form a group. which is the one that does not belong to that group?

In a row of twenty five children facing North, Parkash, When shifted by four places towards his right, becomes tenth from the right end. What was his original position from the left end?
Correct Answer
E. None of these
Explanation
Since Parkash is 10th from the right end after shifting 4 places to the right, this means that there are 9 children to the right of Parkash. Since there are 25 children in total, this means that there are 25 - 9 = 16 children to the left of Parkash. Therefore, Parkash's original position from the left end was 16th.

Correct Answer
B. FE
Explanation
The group consists of pairs of letters that are immediate neighbors of each other in the circle, except for FE. In the given information, it is stated that E sits second to the left of C, which means that F cannot be an immediate neighbor of E. Therefore, FE does not belong to the group.

C is an immediate neighbour of both G and A.E sits second to the left of C.
two people sit between E and H.
B is an immediate neighbour of G.only one person sits between B and F.
Who sits second to the left of A?
Correct Answer
C. D
Explanation
D sits second to the left of A. We know that C is an immediate neighbour of both G and A. Since C is not sitting second to the left of A, it must be D. Additionally, E sits second to the left of C, so D must be the one sitting second to the left of A.

In a certain code GIVE is written as'51@$' and FAIL is written as'%219'.How is LEAF written in that code?
Correct Answer
B. 9$2%
Explanation
The code follows a pattern where each letter is replaced by a symbol and a number. The symbol and number represent the position of the letter in the English alphabet. For example, in the word GIVE, G is the 7th letter, so it is replaced by the symbol '@' and the number '7'. Similarly, E is the 5th letter, so it is replaced by the symbol '$' and the number '5'. Applying the same pattern to the word LEAF, L is the 12th letter, so it is replaced by the symbol '9' and the number '12'. E is the 5th letter, so it is replaced by the symbol '$' and the number '5'. A is the 1st letter, so it is replaced by the symbol '%' and the number '1'. And F is the 6th letter, so it is replaced by the symbol '2' and the number '6'. Therefore, LEAF is written as '9$2%' in that code.

STATEMENTS:
All lines are circles.
some circles are squares.
conclusions:
No square is a line.
some squares are definitely not circles.
Correct Answer
C. Neither one or two follows
Explanation
The given statements state that all lines are circles and some circles are squares. From these statements, we cannot conclude that no square is a line (conclusion one) because there is a possibility that there are squares that are not circles. Similarly, we cannot conclude that some squares are definitely not circles (conclusion two) because there is a possibility that there are squares that are also circles. Therefore, neither conclusion one nor conclusion two follows from the given statements.

This means that there is no overlap between gliders and kints, implying that some gliders are definitely not birds. The second conclusion, "at least some birds are kites," can be inferred from the first statement which states that "all kits are birds." This means that there is a possibility of some birds being kites, although it is not explicitly stated.
