• 8
• 4
• 9
32X54=1728. 1740-1728=12 😀

THE QUESTION WAS WRONG 😐
yes the question is wrong. i spend more time in it 😔
• Gurjeet Singh
so please i think q 21: that should not be count in question as people confused ,and please verify the question 47 as well..(Who is sitting at the extreme left? answers should be MONU )but marked as TINU there?
• Kaustubh Katdare
We verified. The Answer is 'SOUTH'. Looks like

Regarding Question #21 -

The question was actually 17[SUP]40[/SUP] Divided by 32. The HTML editor didn't convert the 'raised to' part and showed the number as 1740. Darn! 😡

We'll have to take care of such issues in future tests!
• ISHAN TOPRE
cooldudeiet
and please verify the question 47 as well..(Who is sitting at the extreme left? answers should be MONU )but marked as TINU there?
Q 47 IS CORRECT. BOTH QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ARE CORRECT.

46. Six boys - Sonu. Monu, Tinu, Chiku, Ramu and Tyagi are sitting in a row facing the same direction. Sonu is not adjacent to Chiku but adjacent to Ramu. Tyagi is adjacent to both Monu and Tinu. Neither Sonu nor Ramu is sitting at the extreme ends and Tinu is to the left of Sonu but not to the right of Monu. Who is sitting at the extreme right?
• Monu
• Tinu
• Tyagi
First condition:
So it should be Sonu Ramu or Ramu Sonu

Second condition
Tyagi is adjacent to both Monu and Tinu
So it is A Monu Tyagi Tinu or B Tinu Tyagi Monu

Third condition:
Neither Sonu nor Ramu is sitting at the extreme ends
So
Sonu and Ramu are sitting somewhere IN BETWEEN

Fourth condition:
Tinu is to the left of Sonu but not to the right of Monu
So
Tinu is sitting at the LEFT of both Sonu and Monu

So from the the condition
B is true.

So we have
A Tinu Tyagi Monu Ramu Sonu or BTinu Tyagi Monu Sonu Ramu

This leaves Chiku to the EXTREME RIGHT.

So the final positions are
Tinu Tyagi Monu Ramu Sonu Chiku 😀 or Tinu Tyagi Monu Sonu Ramu Chiku 😀

47. Who is sitting at the extreme left?
• Monu
• Tyagi
• Chiku

For question 5, I'm getting 40 as the answer. But the answer is given to be 18. Please check.

Other than that, I think everything is fine. And that 17[sup]40[/sup] question is real bad luck.. It's a good question.

If there are any doubts about any question, feel free to ask here. I'll try to answer them. 😀

5. The diagonals of a rhombus are 12 cm and 16 cm. Find the perimeter of the rhombus.
• 20
• 40

Diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

So from Pythagoras theorem each side equals 10 units. and the perimeter is 40 units. 😀
• andenagaveni24
hey can anybody explain me the solution for Q.36
• andenagaveni24
this is simple ....write all the prime numbers from 41 to 73
they are 41,43,47,53,59,61,67,71,73.....the series given in Q.9 is 41,47,59,67,73.....the logic here is the alternate prime no.s ..so our ans will be the second successive prime number after 73...that is 83 is the answer...
• Ankita Katdare
Solution to question no. 36:
I have a sum of Rs. 4 in 5 paise coins. The total number of coins with me, cannot be:

• 17
• 35
• 26
5x + 50y = 400
OR
x+ 10y = 80
All the other values of (x+y) (except 30) give unique solution to the equation.
