Directions (1-3): Symbol represents certain time in a clock as:-
& – Either the hour or minute hand of clock on 9
\$ – Either the hour or minute hand of clock on 6
# – Either the hour or minute hand of clock on 11
@ – Either the hour or minute hand of clock on 12
% – Either the hour or minute hand of clock on 7

The first symbol represents hours and second symbol represents minutes.

1. Rajdhani express completes its journey in seven hours with usual speed of 100 km/hrs without stopping at any station in six days of a week, but on Sunday it has to stop for 5 minutes on each of the six stations between Lucknow and Delhi.  So at what time the train will reach Delhi with its usual speed every Sunday, if its departure time is #@ o’clock noon every Sunday.
A) #+
B) %*
C) %\$
D) +%
E) Can’t be determined
Option C
Explanation: 6×5=30 minutes late on Sunday.
#@ – 11 hours 60 minutes = 12 PM
Every day timing of arrival =#@+7hr=12 noon+7hr=7 PM
Now 30 minutes late. So
Sunday arrival =7.30 pm =%\$ pm
2. Distance between Kolkata and Ahmedabad is 800 km. An express train starts from Ahemdabad at <@ PM, now after covering half of distance in five hours, some technical fault comes in engine, after that train starts moving at 3/4 of its previous speed. Now at what time will it reach Delhi station?
A) &<
B)  <@
C) <#
D)  <<
E) Both C and O
Option D
Explanation: speed =400/5=80km/hrs
<@=9 pm+5 hr=2  am
After speed=80×3/4=60km/hrs
Next 400 km in= 4o0/60=6 hr 40 minutes
2 am+6.4o minuts=8.40 am
8.40 am represent by = < <
3. Distance between points P and B is 720 km. A car start from A with a speed of 120km/hr at %\$ AM, after one hr it increased speed by 7/6 of previous speed, after next one hr it increased 8/7 of previous speed, after next one hr increased speed by 5/4 of its previous speed, and last its speed decreased by 50% of previous speed. In what time will car complete its  journey?
A)  #\$
B)  @\$
C)  %*
D)  \$%
E) None of these
Option B
Explanation
1st hr=120, 2nd hr=120×7/6=140, 3rd hr=140×8/7=160, 4th hr=160×5/4=200, 5th hr=200×1/2=100
In 5 hr=120+140+160+200+100= 720 km
7.30am+5hr= 12.30 pm= @\$

Directions (9-10): Answer the questions on the basis of the information below.

@ represent West
# represent  South
& represent  North
\$ represent East
3 green light – 90 km/hr
2 green light -45 km/hr
1 green light -15 km/hr
3 red light – stop
+ means 5 minute, × means 9 minute, ÷ means 6 minute, – means 2 minute.

Example: product of (×-) means -9×2=18 mintutes total

A man gets a 3 green light signal from point A,turn \$ direction and walks, product of (×-) minutes and got 3 red light signal at point B. From point B he gets 2 green light signals and turn # direction and walks product of  (÷ -) minutes, and get a 3 red light signal at point C. From point C he walks 7 Km in @ direction, and gets a 3 red light signal at point D. From point D, he turns # direction and get a 1 green light signal, and walks for product of (4÷) minutes and finally at point E he gets a 3 red light signal and stops.

1. What is shortest distance between E and A?
A) 20km
B) 25km
C) 15km
D) 16km
E) None of these
Option B
Explanation:
90 * 18/60 = 27 km
45 * 12/60 = 9 km
15 * 24/60 = 6 km

AE = √[(15)2 + (20)2] = √625 = 25 km
2. Point B in which direction respect of point E?
A) North-west
B) North
C) North-east
D) East
E) None of these
Option C

2nd qustion me waha <@ PM ki jagah par &@ PM hoga plz update this

1. ayush

Thanks Chetan chaurasiya, it’s typo error, we will correct it soon.

1. Jeevitha Selvaraj

In qn(4-8)s,from step 4 to step 5,how 24q is coded as 7?

1. Jeevitha Selvaraj

I think 24q will be coded as 41i.e 24+17

1. Jeevitha Selvaraj

2. ayush

STEP IV logic-
number-last letter position
24-17 (q number is 17 in alphabet series)=7

3. Jeevitha Selvaraj

4-8 questions me …-9 kaise aaya???

1. ayush

Step III- logic- number-position of last alphabet in alphabet series
So 10-19=-9 ( S position in 19)
