Answers

1. a;
? + 318 = 1518
? = 1200
? = (1200)2 = 1440000

2. d;
25% of 1200 = 300
? + 290 = 300
? = 300-290 = 10
? = 102 = 100

3. a;
40% of 80 + ? of 50% = 10% of 620
32 + ? of 50% = 62
? of 50% = 62 – 32  = 30
? = 60

4. c;

5. a;
92 + 91/2 = 81 + 3 = 84
? of 50% = 84
? = 168

6. a;
The series is +13
So, 35 is the wrong number.
7 should be subtracted from it to get the correct number.

7. e;
The series is +3, +5, +7, +9.
So, ‘32’ is the wrong number.

8. a;
The series is 22 + 1, 32 + 2, 42 + 3, 52 + 4, ….
So 22 is the wrong number. So the required ratio is 22: 22 = 1:1.

9. b;.
The series is +2, +4 , +6, +8, ……
So, ‘7’ is the wrong number.
The second number in the series starting with ‘7’ will be 7 + 2 = 9.

10. c;
The series is -14, -23, -32, -41.
