Answers:

Directions (1-5):

1) Answer: A

3 * 4 = 12

12 * 5 = 60

60 * 6 = 360

360 * 7 = 2520

2520 * 8 = 10160

The wrong term is, 4

2) Answer: D

90, 86, 95, 79, 104, 68, 117

-4 +9 -16 -25 +36 -49

The difference is, – 2

^{2}, + 3^{2}, – 4^{2}, – 5^{2}, – 6^{2}, – 7^{2},…..
The wrong term is, 103

3) Answer: B

11 * 1 + 1 = 12

12 * 2 + 1 = 25

25 * 3 + 1 = 76

76 * 4 + 1 = 305

305 * 5 + 1 = 1526

1526 * 6 + 1 = 9157

The wrong term is, 304

4) Answer: C

The wrong term is, 24

5) Answer: E

1.5 * 4 = 6

6 * 4 = 24

384 * 4 = 1536

1536 * 4 = 6144

The wrong term is, 9

Directions (6-10):

6) Answer: C

The total number of students not participated in any sports from school A

= > 256 * (100/16) * (32/100) = 512

The total number of students not participated in any sports from school C

= > 1500 * (37/100) = 555

Required difference = 555 – 512 = 43

7) Answer: A

The average number of students studied in all the given schools together

= > [(256/16) * 100 + 1200 + 1500 + (240/24) * 100 + 2000] / 5

= > [1600 + 1200 + 1500 + 1000 + 2000] / 5

= > [7300 / 5] = 1460

8) Answer: B

Total number of students participated in badminton from school C and E together

= > 1500 * (25/100) + 2000 * (30/100)

= > 375 + 600 = 975

Total number of students participated in Cricket from school A and B together

= > (384 / 24) * 100 * (28/100) + 1200 * (18/100)

= > 448 + 216 = 664

Required % = (975 / 664) * 100 = 146.83 % = 146 %

9) Answer: B

The total number of students participated in Badminton from school A and D together

= > (448 / 28) * 100 * (24/100) + (1200/6) * 5 * (27/100)

= > 384 + 270 = 654

The total number of students participated in Volleyball from school B and C together

= > 1200 * (20/100) + 1500 * (21/100)

= > 240 + 315 = 555

Required ratio = 654 : 555 = 218 : 185

10) Answer: C

Total number of students studied in school E = 2000

Total number of students participated in Cricket from school B and C together

= > 1200 * (18/100) + 1500 * (17/100)

= > 216 + 255 = 471

Required % = [(2000 – 471) / 471] * 100 = 325 % more
