Mixed Reasoning Questions Set 4 (new Pattern)

Directions (1-5): Each question below contains two rows marked by I and II. The resultant of each row can be found by the rules given below. Answer the question followed by the rows by finding the resultant with the help of following five rules:

Step 1) If an even number is followed by an odd (prime) number, then the resultants will be additions of two numbers.

Step 2) If an odd number is followed by a perfect square, then the resultants come by subtracting smaller number from greater number.

Step 3) If an odd number is followed by another odd number, then the resultants will be additions of two numbers.

Step 4) If an even number is followed by an odd (non-prime) number, then the resultants come by subtracting smaller number from greater number.

Step 5) If an odd number is followed by an even number, then the resultants come by multiplying the numbers.

Note: For each resultant start from step 1. So for each operation priority will be given to Step 1, then step 2 and so on.

    View Answer
    Option C

    For row I –
    From rule 3: 9 + 5 = 14
    From rule 1: 14 + 7 = 21
    Resultant of first row = 21
    For row II –
    From rule 2: 16 – 7 = 9
    From rule 3: 9 + 3 = 12
    Resultant of second row = 12
    HCF of (21 and 12) = 3
  2. I.  18    9     4
    II. 15    x     2
    If x is the resultant of first row, find the highest factor of the resultant of second row.
    A) 7
    B) 2
    C) 3
    D) 4
    E) 5
    View Answer
    Option A

    For row I –
    From rule 4: 18 – 9 = 9
    From rule 5: 9 × 4 = 36
    Resultant of first row = 36
    So x = 36
    For row II –
    From rule 2: 36 – 15 = 21
    From rule 5: 21 × 2 = 42
    Resultant of second row = 42
    Factors of 42 = 1 × 2 × 3 × 7
    So 7 is the highest factor
  3. I.  10     7      4
    II. 22    15     5
    Find the total of the resultants of the two rows.
    A) 72
    B) 70
    C) 62
    D) 80
    E) 99
    View Answer
    Option D

    For row I –
    From rule 1: 10 + 7 = 17
    From rule 5: 17 × 4 = 68
    Resultant of first row = 68
    For row II –
    From rule 4: 22 – 15 = 7
    From rule 1: 7 + 5 = 12
    Resultant of second row = 12
    So Answer = 68 + 12
  4. I.    3     8     15
    II.  20    9      4
    Find the multiplication of the resultants of both rows.
    A) 54
    B) 75
    C) 52
    D) 63
    E) 73
    View Answer
    Option D

    For row I –
    From rule 5: 3 × 8 = 24
    From rule 4: 24 – 15 = 9
    Resultant of first row = 9
    For row II –
    From rule 4: 20 – 9 = 11
    From rule : 11 – 4 = 7
    Resultant of second row = 7
    So answer = 9 × 7 = 63
  5. I.  21    9       5
    II.  x     8      27
    If x is the resultant of the first row, find the resultant of the second row.
    A) 122
    B) 109
    C) 118
    D) 90
    E) 99
    View Answer
    Option B

    For row I –
    From rule 2: 21 – 9 = 12
    From rule 1: 12 + 5 = 17
    Resultant of first row = 17
    For row II –
    From rule 5: 17 × 8 = 136
    From rule 1: 136 – 27 = 109
    Resultant of second row = 109
  6. In a row, Asha is sitting at 6th position from the left end of row and Binita is sitting at 11th position from the right end of row. If there are 5 students sitting between Asha and Binita, find how many students are sitting in the row.
    A) 20
    B) 22
    C) 21
    D) 24
    E) 23
    View Answer
    Option B

    There will be 6 + 5 + 11 = 22 students
  7. Ruchika is sitting at 7th position from left end of row and Sahil is sitting at 8th position from right end of row. If both of them interchange their position, then Ruchika gets sit at 16th position from left end of row. Find the total students in the row.
    A) 25
    B) 24
    C) 21
    D) 22
    E) 23
    View Answer
    Option E

    Ruchika will be at 16th from left end and 8th from right end. So total = (16 + 8 – 1) = 23
