nice set.. felt happy.
in 8th question how option C…. here 44-16 = 28 i think, if ill wrong plz make me right.
See the positions, Car C will move 44 m east means upto car A and then 15 m north to reach point Z or car G
ausum set mam…..
i think puzzle needs correction coz violet colour is the name of ball but in the last line violet colour is use for box plz
let me clear my doubt if i m getting wrong
mam kindly explain ,how did u get the distance bw A &F,F&B?
AB = 60
and successive distance is a multiple of 4
only 28 + 32 makes 60
successive 28, and 32
24 + 36 = 60, but 24 and 36 are not successive multiples of 4
