### Quiz

Direction(1-2): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below.
If ‘M + N’ means M is the father of N If ‘M * N’ means N is the brother of M If ‘M – N’ means M is the wife of N If ‘M # N’ means N is the mother of M If ‘M % N’ means M is the son of N

1. What should come in the place of the question marks (?), to establish that D is father in law C in the following expression? A # C ? N * J ? B- D
A. %, # B. +, * C. -, # D. %, + E. None of these

2. Which of the following option is true if the expression E + A % C* B % D?
A. A is brother of B B. E is son of D C. C is father of A D. E is brother in law B E. None of these

Direction[3-5]: In every question two rows are given and to find out the resultant of a particular row you need to follow the given conditions: -
Condition 1: If an odd number is followed by an even number (non-prime) then the resultant will be the modules of difference of both the numbers.
Condition 2: If an even number is followed by a perfect cube then the resultant will be the addition of the both.
Condition 3: If an even number is followed by another even number then the resultant will be the multiplication of both the numbers.
Condition 4: If an odd number is followed by an even number (prime) then the resultant will be the subtraction of the even number from the odd number.
Condition 5: If an odd number is followed by an odd number then the resultant comes by multiplying both the numbers.
Condition 6: If an even number is followed by an odd number the resultant would be the double of the odd number.
3. Find the sum of the resultant of the two rows 2 8 4 3 6 6
A. 21 B. 37 C. 58 D. 43 E. 78

4. Find the resultant of second row if Z is the resultant of first row
A. 90 B. 120 C. 150 D. 180 E. 210

5. Fine the product of resultants of these rows
A. 13 B. 15 C. 17 D. 31 E. 21

Explanation -

Explanation -
First Row resultant
1) even followed by perfect cubeÃ 2 + 8 = 10
2) even followed by even Ã 10 * 4 = 40
Second Row resultant
1) odd followed by non-prime even Ã 6 – 3 = 3
2) odd followed by non-prime even Ã 6 – 3 = 3
Sum of resultants = 40 + 3 = 43
Explanation -
First Row resultant
1) Even followed by odd Ã 64, 9 = 9 * 2 = 18
2) Even followed by perfect cube Ã 18 + 27 = 45
Z = 45
Second Row resultant
1) Even followed by odd Ã 12,45 = 45 * 2 = 90
2) Even followed by even Ã 90 * 2 = 180
Explanation -
First row resultant
1) odd followed by non-prime even Ã 8 – 1 = 7
2) odd followed by non-prime even Ã 8 – 7 = 1
Second row resultant
1) even followed by perfect cube Ã 4 + 27 = 31
2) odd followed by odd Ã 31 * 1 = 31
Product of resultants = 31 * 1 = 31
Direction(1-5): Study the following information carefully to answer the given questions
Eight friends- A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a square table in such a way that four of them sit at corners of the table while the other four sit in the middle of the four sides. Those who sit in the middle of the four sides face the centre while those who sit at the corners of the four sides face outside. A sits third to the left of C, who does not sit at any of the corners and C is an immediate neighbour of G. E sits to the left but not on the immediate left of F, who is not an immediate neighbour of C and E. B and H are not the immediate neighbors of each other and H is an immediate neighbour of A and E. A and D are also not immediate neighbour of each other. D does not sit in the middle of any sides and at least two persons can sit between A and D. E and G sit opposite to each other but do not face each other. F cannot sit opposite C.
1. H sits third to the left of whom?
A. B B. F C. D D. C E. None of these

2. What is the position of B with respect of F?
A. Third to the left B. Third to the right C. Fourth to the left D. Second to the right E. None of these

3. Who among the following represent the immediate neighbors of F?
A. HG B. GA C. BE D. AH E. None of these

4. If they all are rearranged clockwise in alphabetical order starting from A (A retains his original position), which of the following would retain his original position?
A. H B. G C. D D. E E. None of these

5. Who among the following sits exactly between D and G?
A. B B. H C. F D. C E. None of these

Explanation [1-5]-
A sits third to the left of C, who does not sit at any of the corners and an immediate neighbor of G.

A and D are also not immediate neighbor of each other. D does not sit in the middle of any sides and at least two persons can sit between A and D.

Possibility 2 does not follow this condition.
E and G sit opposite each other but do not face each other. F cannot sit opposite C. E sits to the left but not on the immediate left of F, who is not an immediate neighbor of C. B and H are not the immediate neighbors of each other and H is an immediate neighbor of A and E. (Final Arrangement)
