### Ans. 1

Six
Pattern = Pair of preceded numbers whose product is more than the product of pair of succeeded numbers
53 8 24 = 15 8 8

Two
MARE, REAM

One
EXAMI
EI only one pair

### Ans. 4.

10th
Kalika’s rank from the top = (Total students – rank from the bottom) + 1
Kalika’s rank = (37 – 7) + 1
= 29th
Seema’s rank from the top = Ankur’s rank from the top + kalika’s rank from the top / 2
Seema’s rank from the top = 9 + 29/ 2
= 19th
Kalika’s position from seema = 29 -19 = 10th

Sa or da

### Ans. 6.

South
It is clear that Priyanka’s shadow fell towards left. So, she is facing north.
Therefore, Viral standing with his back towards priyanka will be facing south.

### Ans. 7.

Grandson
Man’s son’s sister = daughter of the man
Man’s daughter = mother in law of woman (speaker)
So, the woman (speaker) is married to man’s daughter’s son.
Therefore, woman’s husband is the grandson of the man in the photograph.

### Ans. 8.

Only either 1 or 4 follows
For conclusion 1 and 4, No + some = some not. Here, conclusion 1 and 4 make a complementary pair.
For conclusion2, No + Some = Some Not
For conclusion 3, All + No = No
So, both conclusion 2 and 3 do not follow

### Ans. 9.

If only conclusion 2 follows
Conclusion 1 does not follow because it is not directly related with the given statement.
Conclusion 2 follows because it provides a suitable explanation to the given statement as one should have some solutions.

### Ans. 10.

If only conclusion 2 follows
Voluntary organizations are not provided financial support by the government. The main problem is the sources of financial support.
So, logically the voluntary organizations should explore alternative sources of financial support.
Therefore, only course of action 2 is approximate and follows.
