# 1. In a certain code, PATTERN is written as OTAETNR.

How is CORRESPONDENT
written in that code?
(A) DROERPSNOEDTN
(B) BROERPSNODETN
(C) BROERPSONEDTN
(D)BROERPSNOEDTN
(E) None of these
Ans: (D) BROERPSNOEDTN
Sol:
Clearly, to obtain the code, the first letter of the word PATTERN is moved one step
backward and the remaining letters are reversing in order, taking two at a time.

## Therefore, in CORRESPONDENT, C will be coded as B, and the sequence of the

remaining letter in the code would be ROERPSNOEDTN. Thus, the code becomes
BROERPSNOEDTN.

## 2. A is the brother of B & C. F is the mother of B. Gs son E is father of C.

Which of the following statement is definitely not true?
(A) A is the son of E.
(B) F is the wife of E.
(C) G is the grandfather of B.
(D) C is the father of F.
(E) B is the brother of C.
Ans: (D) C is the father of F.
Sol:

Here, A is the brother of B & C, F & E are mother and father of A, B & C. E is the son
of G but G may be grandfather or grandmother of A, B & C.

## Therefore, from the family tree:

A is the son of E definitely true.
F is the wife of E definitely true.
G is the grandfather of B May or may not be true.
C is the father of F definitely not true as E is the father of C.
B is the brother of C probability of being true.
Hence, the answer will be C is the father of F is definitely not true.

(A) G is ranked first or fourth.
(B) C is ranked second or third.
(C) A is ranked second or fifth.
(D) F is ranked third or fourth.
(E) E is ranked fourth or fifth.
Ans: (D) F is ranked third or fourth.
Sol: In terms of scores, we have:
G > A, A > B i.e. G > A > B.
If C scores the highest, we have C > . > E.
If D scores the highest, we have D > > B or D > > F.
If D is ranked sixth and B is ranked fifth, we have:
> > > > >B>D> .
In this case, C will rank the highest and thus E will rank the least. We have:
C > > > > B > D > E.
Also, the order G > A > B will be, G and A will have second, third or fourth places.
Thus only F is ranked third or fourth can be true.
21. If C gets most, G should be ranked not lower than:
(A) Second
(B) Third
(C) Fourth
(D) Fifth
(E) Sixth

Ans: C
Sol: In terms of scores, we have:
G > A, A > B i.e. G > A > B.
If C scores the highest, we have C > . > E.
If D scores the highest, we have D > > B or D > > F.
Again, if C ranks most, E ranks lowest and occupies seventh place. Since G always
ranks above A & B, so in the maximum, A & B will occupy fifth and sixth places.
Thus, G will not rank lower than fourth.
23. If C is ranked second and B is ranked fifth, which of the following must be true?
(A) D is ranked third
(B) E is ranked sixth
(C) A is ranked sixth.
(D) G is ranked fourth.
(E) F is ranked sixth.
Ans: B
Sol: In terms of scores, we have:
G > A, A > B i.e. G > A > B.
If C scores the highest, we have C > . > E.
If D scores the highest, we have D > > B or D > > F.
If C is ranked second, D will rank first and B or F rank lowest. But B ranks fifth. So, F
ranks lowest. Also, the order G > A > B will be followed.
So, the arrangement will be D > C > G > A > B > > F. Thus, the sixth place will be
occupied by E.
