The (11) of learning is a major issue and reports show that children are not (12) class-appropriate learning levels. According to Pratham’s Annual Status of Education 2013 report, (13) to 78 percent of children in Standard III and about 50 percent of children in Standard V cannot yet read Standard II texts. Arithmetic is also a cause for (14) as only 26 percent students in Standard V can do a division problem. Without immediate and urgent help, these children cannot effectively (15) in the education system, and so improving the quality of learning in schools is the next big challenge for both the state and central governments.

Solutions:
1. D)
Series pattern:
2 × 3 + 5 = 11
11 × 4 – 6 = 38
38 × 5 + 7 = 197
197 × 6 – 8 = 1174
1174 should come in place of 1172
1174 × 7 + 9 = 8227
8227 × 8 – 10 = 65806
Clearly, 1172 is wrong and will be replaced by 1174.
2. C)
Series pattern 4 × 0.5 = 2
2 × 1.5 = 3
3 should come in place of 3.5
3 × 2.5 = 7.5;
7.5 × 3.5 = 26.25;
26.25 × 4.5 = 118.125
Clearly, 3.5 is wrong and is replaced by 3.
3. B)
Series pattern 16 × 0.25 = 4;
4 × 0.50 = 2 2 × 0.75 = 1.5;
1.5 × 1.00 = 1.5
1.5 should come in place of 1.75
1.5 × 1.25 = 1.875
Clearly, 1.75 is wrong and will be replaced by 1.5
4. B)
5. D)
Series pattern = 0.5 x 2 + 0.5 = 1.5; 1.5 x 2 + 0.5 = 3.5; 3.5 x 2 + 0.5 = 7.5; so on
