A) None
B) One
C) Two
D) Three
E) More than three
D) Three
Explanation:

153826
In descending order – 865321
Pairs – 13, 58, 53

2. FIG : EGHJFH :: BIN : ?
A) CAJHOM
B) ACHJMO
C) ACJHMO
D) CAHJMO
E) None of these
B) ACHJMO
Explanation:

FIG – 6 9 7
F-1 = 5(E)
F+1 = 7(G)
I-1 = 8(H)
I+1 = 10(J)
G-1 = 6(F)
G+1 = 8(H)

3. If TRICKS is written as 299321 in a certain code language, then how is SYMBOL written in that code?
A) 174263
B) 188522
C) 123865
D) 917431
E) None of these
A) 174263
Explanation:

T = 20 = 2+0
R = 18 = 1+8
I = 9
C = 3
K = 11 = 1+1
S = 19 = 1+9 = 1+0

4. How many pairs of letters are there in the word REASONING, each of which have as many letters between then in the word as they have between then in the English alphabet?
A) None

5. Prerna is sitting 15th from the right end of a row of 25 girls facing south and Supriya is 19th from the left end. How many girls are sitting between Prerna and Supriya?
A) 9
B) 4
C) 5
D) 7
E) None of these
D) 7
Explanation:

Up to Supriya 19 people from left and up to Prerna 15 people from right.
Since 19+15 > 25, so find what is Supriya’s position from right and Prerna’s position from left.
Supriya is (25-19)+1 = 7th position from right. Prerna is (25-15)+1 = 11th position from left
So in between them 25-(7+11) = 7
