*solutions*
1. Ans. A.

59, 60 ,61 ,64 ,79 ,185 ,1129

The differences of the series is 1,3,15,106…..

This can be formed on the basis like
1×1,1×3,3×5,15×7..so on

Hence the wrong no. is 185.

2. Ans. B.

330, 80, 280, 120, 250, 130, 240

The difference of 330 and 80=250
The difference of 80 and 280=200

The difference of 280 and 120=160
The difference of 120 and 250=130

The difference of 250 and 130=120
And this difference will be 110,

so the wrong no. is
130

3. Ans. C.

291, 147, 75, 39, 22,12,7.5

The series is
291−147=144
147−75=72
75−39=36
39−22=17 but this difference will be 18

So the wrong no. is 22

4. Ans. C.

1, 3, 9, 31, 129, 652

The series is
1×1+2=3
3×2+3=9
9×3+4=31
31×4+5=129
129×5+6=651

Hence the no. 652 is wrong

5. Ans. A.

the series is
26+1^2−1=26 26+3^2−1=34 34+5^2−1=58 58+7^2−1=106 and so on…..

Hence wrong no. is 27

6. Ans. A.

15. Ans. A.

Total no. of employees in company D=
900×24/100 × 1/12 * 1.25−900×24/100 * 1.5 =297

16. Ans. E.

Quantity I:
Let speed of current=x
Speed of boat=x+5x
Downstream speed=63/7x
=3
X=3
Upstream speed=6x – x=5x=15kmph

Quantity II- 15 km/hr

Hence QuantityI = Quantity II or No relation

17. Ans. A.

Let no. be x,x+2,x+4,x+6…..

Quantity I = x+2+x+14=2x+16

Quantity II=x+4+x+10=2x+14

Hence
Quantity I > Quantity II

18. Ans.

A.
Qunatity1= x= −3,2

Qunatity11= y= −4,−3

Qunatity1> Qunatity11

19. Ans.

A.
Quantity I – Rs. 550

Quantity II – let Marked price of article=M
M×7/8 =1500
M= 1200/7

Hence Quantity I > Quantity II

20. Ans. A.

Quantity I =10 days

Quantity II=12 days

Hence Qunatity1> Qunatity11

27. Ans. E.

Ratio of profit of A, B and C in scheme S1
80000×2:30000×3:50000×5= 16:9:25

In scheme S1
Profit of A=×200000=64000
Profit of B=×200000=36000

Profit of C=×200000=100000
