Smitha moved a distance of 85 mts towards south, then turned to right and walked for 15 mts. She turned right again and walked 60 mts. Finally, she turned right at an angle of 45° and continued walking. In which direction was she moving ultimately ?
Correct Answer
B. North-East
Explanation
Smitha initially moved 85 meters towards the south. Then, she turned right and walked for 15 meters, which means she was moving towards the west. After that, she turned right again and walked 60 meters, which means she was moving towards the north. Finally, she turned right at an angle of 45 degrees, which would put her in the northeast direction. Therefore, the ultimate direction in which Smitha was moving is North-East.

One evening, A was standing facing a pole. The shadow of the pole fell exactly to his left. Which direction was he facing ?
Correct Answer
A. South
Explanation
A was facing north because the shadow of the pole fell exactly to his left. In the evening, the sun sets in the west, so the shadow of the pole would be cast towards the east. Since the shadow fell to A's left, it means that A was facing north, with the pole and its shadow on his left side. Therefore, the direction A was facing is north.

A starts walking straight towards B and midway he turns to his left and after covering half of the distance he take a 45° turn in the clock-wise direction. Which direction is he facing now ?
Correct Answer
C. West
Explanation
After A starts walking straight towards B, he turns to his left midway. This means that he is now facing in a direction perpendicular to his original direction. Then, after covering half of the distance, he takes a 45° turn in the clockwise direction. This means he is turning to his right. Since he was originally facing towards B, turning to his right would make him face in the opposite direction, which is West.

Find the next number in the series 2, 5, 8, 11, .........
Correct Answer
A. 14
Explanation
The given series is an arithmetic sequence with a common difference of 3. Each term is obtained by adding 3 to the previous term. Therefore, the next number in the series would be 11 + 3 = 14.
7.
Find the next number in the series 25, 225, 625, ............
Correct Answer
D. 1225
Explanation
The series is formed by squaring the previous number and adding 100. Starting with 25, the next number is obtained by squaring 25, which is 625, and adding 100, resulting in 725. However, this number is not given as an option. The closest option is 1225, which is obtained by squaring 35 and adding 100.

Find the Number 9 : 8::_____:125
Correct Answer
A. 36
Explanation
In the given analogy, the relationship between the numbers is that the first number is the cube of the second number. In the given analogy, 8 is the cube of 2 (2^3 = 8). Similarly, the number that is the cube of 5 (5^3 = 125) is 36 (6^3 = 36). Therefore, the correct answer is 36.
9.
Find the Number 3 : 12 :: 9 : ........
Correct Answer
A. 30
Explanation
In the given analogy, the relationship between the numbers is that the first number is multiplied by 3 to get the second number. Therefore, to find the missing number, we need to multiply 9 by 3. The result is 27. However, since 27 is not one of the options, we need to check if any of the options can be obtained by multiplying 9 by 3. The only option that satisfies this condition is 30. Therefore, the correct answer is 30.

Find Letter Series PRLN : XZTV :: JLFH : ?
Correct Answer
C. RTNP
Explanation
The given letter series PRLN : XZTV follows a pattern where each letter is moved 6 positions forward in the alphabet. Similarly, the letter series JLFH should also follow the same pattern. Therefore, starting with J, moving 6 positions forward gives the letter R. Similarly, L + 6 = T, F + 6 = L, and H + 6 = N. Thus, the correct answer is RTNP.
11.
Find the Letter Series ABC, ZYX, DEF, WVU, ___________
Correct Answer
C. GHI
Explanation
The given letter series follows a pattern where the first three letters are in alphabetical order (ABC, DEF) and the last three letters are in reverse alphabetical order (ZYX, WVU). Therefore, the missing term should have the first three letters in alphabetical order and the last three letters in reverse alphabetical order. Among the given options, only "GHI" satisfies this pattern, making it the correct answer.

In a certain code language if the word "COMFORT" is coded as CODFFRB, then how will the word "COMMODITY" be coded in that language ?
Correct Answer
A. CODMFDITG
Explanation
The given word "COMFORT" is coded as "CODFFRB" by shifting each letter one position backward in the English alphabet. Applying the same logic, the word "COMMODITY" will be coded as "CODMFDITG" by shifting each letter one position backward in the English alphabet.

If "MANGO" = 20 and "ORANGE" = 30 then what is the value of PINEAPPLE ?
Correct Answer
B. 44
Explanation
The value of each letter in the word is determined by its position in the alphabet. "MANGO" has a total value of 20 because M=13, A=1, N=14, G=7, and O=5. Similarly, "ORANGE" has a total value of 30 because O=15, R=18, A=1, N=14, G=7, and E=5. Therefore, "PINEAPPLE" would have a value of 44 because P=16, I=9, N=14, E=5, A=1, P=16, P=16, L=12, and E=5.

Find the Odd man out
Correct Answer
B. Piano
Explanation
The odd man out in this group is "Piano" because it is the only instrument that is played using keys, while the other three instruments are played using strings. The guitar, sitar, and violin all produce sound by plucking or bowing strings, whereas the piano produces sound by striking keys that are connected to hammers which hit strings inside the instrument.

Ramu aks Shamu, if a wall clock shows 9 hours 30 minutes, what time does it show in the mirror ?
Correct Answer
B. 2 hours 30 minutes
Explanation
When we look at a wall clock in a mirror, the reflection appears flipped horizontally. This means that the positions of the hour and minute hands are also reversed. Therefore, if the wall clock shows 9 hours 30 minutes, in the mirror it would appear as 2 hours 30 minutes.

The angle between the two hands of a clock is 100°, when the hour hand is between 4 and 5. What time does the watch show ?
Correct Answer
C. 4 hours 40 min
Explanation
The angle between the two hands of a clock is 100° when the hour hand is between 4 and 5. This means that the minute hand is pointing at the 8 on the clock face. The minute hand moves 360° in 60 minutes, so for every 1 minute, it moves 6°. To create an angle of 100°, the minute hand would need to move 100/6 = 16.67 minutes. Since we can't have a fraction of a minute, we round it up to 17 minutes. Therefore, the time shown on the watch is 4 hours and 17 minutes.

If 10th August, 1991 was a Saturday, then what day of the week will this day be after 3 years ?
Correct Answer
C. Wednesday
Explanation
If 10th August, 1991 was a Saturday, then after 3 years, the day of the week will shift by 3 days. Since there are 7 days in a week, adding 3 days will bring us to Wednesday. Therefore, the day after 3 years will be Wednesday.

What is the angle between the two hands of a clock, when the clock shows 4.30 p.m ?
Correct Answer
A. 45°
Explanation
At 4:30 p.m., the minute hand is pointing at the 6 on the clock while the hour hand is pointing at the 4. The angle between the two hands can be calculated by finding the difference between their positions. Since the hour hand moves 30 degrees per hour and the minute hand moves 6 degrees per minute, the hour hand has moved 120 degrees (4 hours x 30 degrees) and the minute hand has moved 180 degrees (30 minutes x 6 degrees). The difference between their positions is 180 degrees - 120 degrees = 60 degrees. However, since the question asks for the angle "between" the hands, we take the smaller angle between them, which is 60 degrees/2 = 30 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is 30°.
