TEST I: REASONING ABILITY

This is a test to see how well you can think. It contains questions of various kinds. Here are some sample questions.
Directions : In each of the following questions, there is a group of letters or words given. Four of the five are alike in a certain way, while one is different. Find out the one which is different.
Q.1. (1) black (2) red (3) green (4) yellow (5) paint
Of the five, ‘black’, ‘red’, ‘green’, and ‘yellow’ form a group as they are names of colours. ‘Paint’ is not the name of a colour. Therefore (5) is the answer. Now try to solve the following question.

Q.2. (1) XZ (2) MN (3) PQ (4) BC (5) ST
Q.3. “Foot” is related to “Man” in the same way as “Hoof” is related to –––––
(1) Leg (2) Horse (3) Dog (4) Boy (5) Shoe In the above example, with which one of the five, “Hoof” has the same relationship as “Foot” has to “Man” ? The answer is “Horse”, which is answer number (2). Now try the following questions.

Q.4. “Day” is related to “Night” in the same way as “Kind” is related to –––––
(1) Cruel (2) Bright (3) Dark (4) Generous (5) Gratitude

Q.5. If the letters in the word TOPS can be rearranged to form a meaningful word beginning with O, the last letter of that word is your answer. If more than one such word can be formed, M is the answer and if no such word can be formed, X is the answer.
(1) T (2) P (3) M (4) S (5) XThere may also be questions in the form of figures, designs and drawings. These may be of three types :
1. Analogies 2. Classification and 3. Series

1. Analogies :
In these questions, there are two sets of figures. the ‘Problem Figures’ and the ‘Answer Figures’. The Problem Figures are presented in two units. The first unit contains two figures and the second unit contains one figure and a question mark in place of the fourth figure. You have to find out which one of the Answer Figures should be in place of the question mark. Study the following questions based on Analogies. Look at the first two Problem Figures. The second figure is related to the first figure in a certain way. The first figure is a square. In the second figure, the square has been bisected by a vertical line and the right half has been darkened. The third and fourth figures should have the same relationship as the first and the second have. The third figure is a circle, so in the fourth figure, the circle should be bisected by a vertical line and the right half should be darkened. Answer Figure 5 is related to the third Problem Figure in this way. Therefore the answer is “5”. Study the first and the second figures in the Problem Figures. The first figure is a darkened square and in the second figure, there are four squares, not darkened, arranged in a particular way. That means the elements in the second figure are four times the elements in the first figure and are not darkened. In addition, the four squares are arranged in specific way and are not touching one another. The third figure is a darkened circle. Therefore, the fourth figure should have four circles which are not darkened, arranged in the same way as in the second figure. Now look at the Answer Figures. You will find that figure 1 consists of four circles which are not darkened arranged in a similar way. Therefore, the answer is “1” For example, look at the example at Q. No. 11. Of the five figures, four figures are such that in each of them, there are two similar figures, one within the other. These four figures form a group. Figure 1 is unlike this and so does not belong to this group. Therefore the answer is “1”. Note that the number of arrows is increasing by 1 everytime and that they are gradually falling towards the left. In the sixth figure there should be six arrows and they should fall further and be lying flat, i.e. they should be horizontal. The answer, therefore, is “5”. Now solve the following questions. TEST II : NUMERICAL ABILITY - This Test is to measure how fast and accurate you are in dealing with numbers. Directions : In each of the following questions one number is missing. The place where the number is missing is shown by a question mark (?). You have to find out which one of the answers shown against 1, 2, 3 and 4 can replace the question mark. If none of these four can replace the question mark, you will indicate (5) i.e. ‘None of these’ as your answer.

Q.20. 42 + 73 + 137 = ?
(1) 352 (2) 252 (3) 242 (4) 142 (5) None of these

Q.21. 20 × 1 2 = ?
(1) 4 (2) 5 (3) 12 (4) 20 (5) None of these

The correct answer for Q. 21 is 10. But none of the 1, 2, 3, or 4 shows this answer. Therefore your answer is 5. Some of the questions may require arithmetical reasoning. For example :
Q.22. At 10 rupee each, how many rupee will 6 apples cost ?
(1) 6 (2) 10 (3) 60 (4) 61 (5) 610

Q.23. Which of the following can be exact multiple of 4 ?
