Mixed Reasoning Questions – Set 32 (for Mains Exam)

Direction (1-3): Read the questions carefully and answer the following questions.

More than 10 people were sitting in a circular row facing the centre. R is 3rd to the left of L. 2 people are sitting between S and R. P is 2nd to the right of Q. 1 people sitting between L and Q. Less than 2 people are sitting between S and P.

  1. How many people are sitting in the circular arrangement?
    14
    16
    12
    18
    None of these
    Option C
    Explanation:

     

  2. What is the position L with respect to P?
    Third to the left
    Third to the right
    Fourth to the left
    Fifth to the right
    None of these
    Option C

     

  3. How many people are sitting between R and P in anti-clockwise direction?
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    Option B

     

(4-6): Read the following information carefully and answer the following question:

You have to assign 1- 8 numbers to the consonant letter. For example B is assign to 1, C is assigned 2 upto the K is assigned 8. Again start from L assign to 1 and so on. Following are the rules, apply in the letter according to the given condition and coded accordingly:
i) If word contain vowel in starting and ending both end then replace both vowel with * and # respectively.
ii) If word contain 3 or more vowels then first two vowel are replaced with % and * and opposite other vowel/s.
iii) If there are immediate vowels then interchange its position and opposite the letters and increases its letter coded value by 2 numbers
iv) If there are two vowels in the word but not immediate then interchange its position and opposite both letter.

  1. The code for the word ‘shortcodes’?
    76%682*337
    76%682*327
    76%682*217
    76%682*317
    None of these
    Option D
    Explanation: Rule (ii) will be applied.
    B = 1, C = 2, D = 3, F = 4, G = 5, H = 6, J = 7, K = 8, L = 1, M = 2, N = 3, P = 4, Q = 5, R = 6, S = 7, T = 8, V = 1, W = 2, X = 3, Y = 4, Z = 5
    In Shortcodes, 3 vowels are there, so ‘o’ and ‘o’ as % and * resp, and ‘e’ as reverse , from reverse e = v = 1.
    So shortcodes = 76%682*317

     

  2. Which of the following is the code for ‘used pages’?
    1733 41557
    1743 41457
    1743 41557
    1743 42557
    None of these
    Option C
    Explanation: There are 2 vowels in each word and not immediate, so last rule will be applied. used will be coded as esud.
    If see we reverse, a = z = 5, e = v = 1, similarly, i = 6, o = 1, u = 4,
    so used = esud = 1743.
    Similarly, pages = pegas = 41557

     

  3. What is the addition of all independent numbers in the word ‘your major tools’?
    65
    64
    62
    66
    63
    Option C
    your and tools – rule (iii)
    major – rule (iv)
    your = 4+6+3+6 = 19
    major = 2+1+7+5+6 = 21
    tools = 8+3+3+1+7 = 22
    Add all, 19+21+22 = 62

     

Directions (7-8): In the following questions, the symbols %, @, #, $, & and * are used with the following meaning as illustrated below:

P % Q → Q is wife of P
P # Q → Q is daughter of P
P * Q → P is younger than Q
P $ Q → Q is parent of P
P & Q → P and Q are siblings

  1. Given that H*C, and B&A%D#C&H, which of the following is definitely true?
    A#H
    H*B
    H$A
    B*D
    None of these
    Option C
    Explanation: Definitely that A is parent of H which is in Option C.

     

  2. Given R*S#T&V and S&R$P%Q, if age of T is 24 years, then what can be the age of Q?
    62
    15
    10
    Cannot be determined
    None of these
    Option A
    Explanation: Since Q is grandfather/grandmother of T, so Q’s age should be greater than T.

     

Direction (9-10): Read the questions carefully and answer the following questions.

P@Q: P is to the west of Q; P is either 2 or 12 km west of Q.
P#Q: P is to the east of Q; P is either 2 or 12 km east of Q.
P$Q: P is to the North of Q; P is either 5 or 9 km north of Q.
P&Q: P is to the south of Q; P is either 5 or 9 km south of Q.
P@$Q: P is to the north west of point Q. (Note: Distance between P and Q is not known).
P&#Q: P is to the south east of Point Q. (Note: Distance between P and Q is not known).

  1. P@Q, R&#P, Q$R. If the distance between P and R is 13 find the distance between Q and R? (Given that QR < PQ)
    12
    2
    5
    9
    None of these
    Option C

     

  2. U @Q, U$T, T#S, R#T, which of the following cannot be the distance between S and R?
    14
    24
    4
    16
    None of these
    Option D
    Explanation: ST = 2 or 12, TR = 2 or 12, so SR can be (2+2) or (2+12) or (12+12), so 4, or 14 or 24.
