South east

• B.

South west

• C.

North

• D.

A. South east
Explanation
Roy's house is located 200 meters away in the northeast direction from Gopal's house. Since Gopal's house is located 200 meters away in the south east direction from Joseph's house, and Joseph's house is located 200 meters away in the south west direction from Rahim's house, it can be inferred that Roy's house is located in the south east direction from Babu's house.

### A cube has the following figures drawn on its five faces. The top surface is blank. The ellipse is between the cross and the triangle. The square is on the right of the triangle. The ellipse and the square are opposite to each other. Which face is the circle on?

• A.

On the top

• B.

Opposite to ellipse

• C.

Opposite to triangle

• D.

At the bottom

D. At the bottom
Explanation
Based on the given information, we can deduce the following:

1. The top surface is blank, so the circle cannot be on the top.
2. The ellipse is between the cross and the triangle, so the circle cannot be opposite to the ellipse.
3. The square is on the right of the triangle, so the circle cannot be opposite to the triangle.
4. The ellipse and the square are opposite to each other, which means the circle cannot be opposite to the square.

Therefore, the only remaining option is that the circle is at the bottom face of the cube.

### If 841 = 3, 633 = 5, 425 = 7 then 217 =?

• A.

6

• B.

7

• C.

8

• D.

9

D. 9
Explanation
In this pattern, the first digit of each number represents the number of digits in the second digit. For example, in 841, the second digit is 3. This means that the number 841 has 3 digits. The second digit of each number represents the position of the number in the sequence of prime numbers. For example, in 841, the second digit is 3, which means that 841 is the 3rd prime number. Applying this pattern to 217, the second digit is 7, which means that 217 is the 7th prime number. The 7th prime number is 17, so the answer is 9.

### The following equations follow a common property. Find out the correct value to complete D:A = 51 (714) 14;B = 61 (915) 15;C = 71 (1136) 16;D = 81 (?) 17

• A.

(1377)

• B.

(1378)

• C.

(1356)

• D.

(1346)

A. (1377)
Explanation
The given equations follow the pattern D:A = 51, B = 61, C = 71, D = 81. The numbers on the right side of the equation are formed by adding the digits of the number on the left side of the equation. For example, in the equation D:A = 51, 5+1=6, so the number on the right side is 6. Applying the same logic to D = 81, 8+1=9. Therefore, the correct value to complete the equation D = 81 (?) 17 is 9, resulting in (1379).

### 25 * 2 * 6 = 4 * 11 * 0 which set of symbols can replace *?

• A.

X, -, x, +

• B.

+, -, x, +

• C.

X, +, x, -

• D.

X, +, +, x

A. X, -, x, +
Explanation
The given equation is 25 * 2 * 6 = 4 * 11 * 0. By simplifying both sides of the equation, we get 300 = 0, which is a true statement. This implies that the symbol "*" represents the operation of multiplication. The first and third symbols in the set are "x", which is commonly used to represent multiplication. The second symbol is "-", which is not typically used for multiplication. The fourth symbol is "+", which is used to represent addition. Therefore, the set of symbols that can replace "*" in the equation is x, -, x, +.

Explanation
Peter initially walked 8 kms west, which means he moved 8 kms to the left of the starting point. Then, he turned right and walked 3 kms, which means he moved 3 kms upwards. Finally, he turned right again and walked 12 kms, which means he moved 12 kms to the right. If we draw a diagram, we can see that Peter is now 5 kms away from the starting point, forming a right-angled triangle with sides of 8 kms and 3 kms. The distance from the starting point is the hypotenuse of this triangle, which can be calculated using the Pythagorean theorem as sqrt(8^2 + 3^2) = sqrt(64 + 9) = sqrt(73) â‰ˆ 8.54 kms. However, since the answer choices are integers, the closest option is 5 kms.
