Which number should come next in the series? 1,4,9,16,25
Correct Answer
C. 36
Explanation
The series is formed by squaring consecutive numbers. The first number 1 is squared to get 1, the second number 2 is squared to get 4, the third number 3 is squared to get 9, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series should be the square of the next consecutive number, which is 6. The square of 6 is 36.

A rancher is building an open-ended (straight) fence by stringing wire between posts 25 metres apart. If the fence is 100 metres long how many posts should the rancher use?
Correct Answer
D. 5
Explanation
To build an open-ended fence with wire between posts that are 25 meters apart, the rancher needs to determine how many posts are needed for a 100-meter long fence. Since the posts are 25 meters apart, dividing the total length of the fence (100 meters) by the distance between each post (25 meters) will give the number of posts needed. 100/25 = 4. However, since the fence is open-ended, an additional post is required at the end, making the total number of posts needed 4+1=5.

When the shape on the left is folded at the dotted lines which shape does it produce?
Correct Answer
C. C
Explanation
When the shape on the left is folded at the dotted lines, it produces shape C. This can be determined by observing the symmetry of the shape and imagining how it would fold. The dotted lines indicate the folding points, and when folded along these lines, the resulting shape matches shape C.

Joe was both 5th highest and 5th lowest in a race. How many people participated?
Correct Answer
B. 9
Explanation
If Joe was both the 5th highest and the 5th lowest in a race, it means that there were at least 4 people ahead of him and at least 4 people behind him. Therefore, the minimum number of participants in the race would be 9 (4 people ahead + Joe + 4 people behind = 9).

Which number should come next in the series? 3, 9, 6, 12, 9, 15, 12, 18
Correct Answer
C. 15
Explanation
The series alternates between adding 6 and subtracting 3. Starting with 3, we add 6 to get 9, subtract 3 to get 6, add 6 to get 12, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series would be obtained by subtracting 3 from 15, resulting in 12.

If two typists can type two pages in five minutes, how many typists will it take to type twenty pages in ten minutes?
Correct Answer
B. 10
Explanation
If two typists can type two pages in five minutes, it means that each typist can type one page in five minutes. Therefore, in ten minutes, each typist can type two pages. Since we need to type twenty pages in ten minutes, we will need ten typists, as each typist can type two pages in the given time frame. So, the correct answer is 10.

Correct Answer
C. 11-14
Explanation
The correct answer is 11-14. By counting the number of triangles in the diagram, there are at least 11 triangles that can be identified. However, there may be additional triangles that are not immediately obvious, hence the range of 11-14.
28.
Which number should come next in the series? 4,5,8,17,44,
Correct Answer
D. 125
Explanation
To find the next number in the series, we need to identify the pattern in the given numbers. The series is: 4, 5, 8, 17, 44.
Let’s look at the differences between consecutive numbers:
5 - 4 = 1
8 - 5 = 3
17 - 8 = 9
44 - 17 = 27
The differences between the numbers (1, 3, 9, 27) are all powers of 3 (3^0, 3^1, 3^2, 3^3).
If this pattern continues, the next difference should be 3^4 = 81.
So, the next number in the series would be 44 + 81 = 125. So, 125 should come next in the series.
29.
There are four equally spaced beads on a circle. How many straight lines are needed to connect each bead with every other bead?
Correct Answer
B. 6
Explanation
To connect each bead with every other bead, you would need to draw a line between each pair of beads. With four beads, there are six unique pairs, so you would need six straight lines. This is because the number of lines needed is given by the formula for combinations of n items taken 2 at a time, which is
2n(n−1)
where n is the number of items. In this case, n is 4 (the number of beads), so the calculation is
24(4−1)=6
. So, six straight lines are needed to connect each bead with every other bead.

How many straight lines are needed to divide a regular hexagon into 6 identical triangles?
Correct Answer
C. 3
Explanation
To divide a regular hexagon into 6 identical triangles, we need to draw lines from each vertex to the center of the hexagon. These lines will intersect at the center, creating 6 identical triangles. Therefore, 3 straight lines are needed to achieve this division.
