    Explanation:

    From I: P is niece of N, we cant say whose child N is (Q’s or M’s). So E can either be mother or mother-in-law of A.

Directions (5-6): Consider the following series to answer the following questions:

T V @ 2 ! 6 A 5 E $ 8 * K U 5 1 & L # D ^ 4 & M

  1. If the first three elements are interchanged with last three elements respectively, the next three elements are interchanged with the next last three respectively, and so on, which element is second to left of fourth from right of sixth element from left end?
    A) 1
    B) &
    C) L
    D) K
    E) *
    View Answer
    Option B
    Explanation:

    T V @ <=> 4 & M
    2 ! 6 <=> # D ^ and so on
    The series becomes
    4 & M # D ^ 1 & L K U 5 $ 8 * A 5 E 2 ! 6 T V @
    sixth element from left end is ^, fourth to its right is K, second to left of K is &
  2. If the first 7 elements interchanges with the last seven respectively, find the multiplication of the first three numbers is new series.
    A) 180
    B) 100
    C) 120
    D) 160
    E) 150
    View Answer
    Option D
    Explanation:

    The series becomes
    L # D ^ 4 & M 5 E $ 8 * K U 5 1 & T V @ 2 ! 6 A
    So first 3 numbers – 4, 5, and 8
    So required ans = 4 × 5 × 8 = 160
  3. There are 50 students in a class. Ravina is at 12th position from top. Rich is 2 places below Ravina and Vinita is 5 places below Richa. Find the position of Vinita from below in the class.

    B) 33
    C) 32
    D) 30
    E) 29
    View Answer
    Option C
    Explanation:

    Ravina at 12th, Richa at 14th, so Vinita at 14+5 = 19th
    So from below = (50 – 19) + 1 = 32
  4. Reena is sitting 6th to left of Shivani. Rani is 4th to left of Kavita. Richa is 5th to right of Shivani. There are 2 people between Rani and Richa. Let ‘n’ be the number of people between Reena and Kavita, then which of the following satisfies the value of ‘n’?
    A) 5 ≤ n ≤ 10
    B) 11 ≤ n ≤ 17
    C) 18 ≤ n ≤ 23
    D) 24 ≤ n ≤ 29
    E) n > 29
    View Answer
    Option B
    Explanation:

    Rani can be 2 places either left or right of Richa.
    If Rani at 2 places left of Richa:
    Reena _ _ _ 5 _ _ Shivani _ Rani _ _ Richa Kavita
    So 11 people between Reena and Kavita
    If Rani at 2 places right of Richa:
    Reena _ _ _ 5 _ _ Shivani _ _ _ _ Richa _ _ Rani _ _ _Kavita
    So 17 people between Reena and Kavita
    So B option
