Happiness

Explanation
All the words in the set (happiness, pleasure, enjoyment, satisfaction) are related to positive emotions or feelings. However, "impulsiveness" stands out because it does not fit into this category. Impulsiveness refers to acting without thinking or planning, which is not necessarily associated with positive emotions.

### If the first two statements are true, is the final statement true? "Black haired people are kind. I have black hair. I am kind."

• A.

Yes

• B.

No

• C.

Neither True or False (No rational argument)

C. Neither True or False (No rational argument)
Explanation
The final statement cannot be determined as true based solely on the first two statements. While it is stated that black-haired people are kind and the person making the statement has black hair, there is no logical connection between having black hair and being kind. Therefore, the final statement cannot be deemed true or false without further evidence or reasoning.

This sentence is written most correctly because it uses the correct preposition "to" after the verb "rush" and the correct preposition "to" before the noun "his village." It also uses the adverb "immediately" correctly to describe the urgency of the situation.

### After being dropped a certain ball always bounces back to 2/5 of the height of its previous bounce. After the first bounce it reaches a height of 125 centimeters. How high (in centimeters) will it reach after its fourth  bounce?

• A.

20

• B.

27

• C.

8

• D.

35

• E.

3.2

C. 8
Explanation
The ball reaches a height of 125 centimeters after the first bounce. Since the ball always bounces back to 2/5 of its previous height, after the first bounce, it will reach a height of 125 * 2/5 = 50 centimeters. After the second bounce, it will reach a height of 50 * 2/5 = 20 centimeters. After the third bounce, it will reach a height of 20 * 2/5 = 8 centimeters. Therefore, after the fourth bounce, it will also reach a height of 8 centimeters.

Husband and two sons

• D.

Everyone was at home

• E.

Since the question states that all the ladies were invited to a dinner and both sons went out to play, it implies that none of the family members were at home. Therefore, the correct answer is "Nobody was at home."

### A, B and C can do a piece of work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. In how many days can A do the work if he is assisted by B and C on every third day?

• A.

12days

• B.

15 days

• C.

16 days

• D.

10 days

B. 15 days
Explanation
A can do the work alone in 20 days. On every third day, A is assisted by B and C. This means that A works alone for 2 days, and then works with B and C on the third day. Since B and C can complete the work in 30 and 60 days respectively, their combined efficiency is 1/30 + 1/60 = 1/20. This means that on the third day, A's effective efficiency is doubled. Therefore, the work done by A in 3 days is equivalent to the work done by A alone in 6 days. So, in 15 days, A will complete the entire work.

### A father said to his son, "I was as old as you are at the present at the time of your birth". If the father's age is 38 years now, the son's age five years back was:

• A.

14

• B.

33

• C.

19

• D.

38

A. 14
Explanation
When the father says "I was as old as you are at the present at the time of your birth," it means that the age difference between the father and son is the same as the son's current age. If the father is currently 38 years old, then the son's age is 38 - 5 = 33 years. Therefore, the son's age five years back was 33 - 5 = 28 years. The correct answer is 14.

Explanation
The first statement states that all offices on the 9th floor have wall-to-wall carpeting. The second statement states that no wall-to-wall carpeting is pink. Therefore, it can be concluded that none of the offices on the 9th floor have pink wall-to-wall carpeting. Hence, the third statement is true.

Explanation

### Cake is to party as bed is to

• A.

Sleep

• B.

• C.

The analogy between cake and party suggests that cake is a component or a necessary element of a party. Similarly, the analogy between bed and room implies that bed is a component or a necessary element of a room. In this analogy, sleep, nightmare, and dream do not necessarily have a direct relationship with bed, whereas room does. Therefore, the correct answer is room.

Both courses of action follow because they address the problem of the large number of people suffering from fatal malaria in ward X. Course of action I suggests that the city municipal authority should carry out extensive fumigation in ward X to control the mosquito population and prevent the spread of malaria. Course of action II suggests that the people in the area should be advised to take steps to avoid mosquito bites, which can help reduce the risk of contracting malaria. Both actions are necessary to effectively address the problem and prevent further cases of malaria.
