 Question 10
A, B, C, D, E and F are sitting around a round table. A is between E and F. E is opposite to D and C is not in either of the neighbouring seats of E. The person opposite to B is
 A C B D C A D F
Mathematical-Reasoning       Seating-Arrangement
Question 10 Explanation:
A is between E & F = AEF
The final seating arrangement is represented in figure
The person opposite to B = F
 Question 11
The missing term in the series 2, 7, 24, 77, ?, 723 is
 A 238 B 432 C 542 D 320
Mathematical-Reasoning       Series-Test
 Question 12
In certain city the Taxi charges comprise of a fixed charge and the charge of the distance travelled. A person paid ` 156 for a journey of 16 km and another person paid ` 204 for the journey of 24 km. The amount paid by a passenger who has travelled 30 km is
 A 236 B 240 C 248 D 256
Mathematical-Reasoning       Distance-and-Time
Question 12 Explanation:
Fixed charge = ‘x’ Say
Variable charge = Rs y per km
⇒ x + 16y = 156 → (1)
x + 24y = 204 → (2)
By solving (1) & (2),
x = 60, y = 6
⇒ Cost for travelling distance of 30 km = 60 + 3y
= 60 + 3(6)
= Rs 240
 Question 13
In certain code HEALTH is written as KHDOWK. The code of NORTH will be
 A QRUWK B RQWUK C RWQUK D RWUKQ
