**REASONING ABILITY**

There are twelve friends sitting in two parallel rows containing six people each. In row 1, L, M, N, O, P and Q are seated and all of them are facing south. In row 2, Z, Y, X, W, V and U are seated and all of them are facing north. Therefore, in the given seating arrangement each member seated in a row faces another member of the other row.

P faces W, who does not sit at extreme ends. Z sits third to the right of W. Z does not sit at extreme ends. Q does not face Z, and he does not sit at either of the extreme ends. Q is not an immediate neighbour of P. Y sits at one of the extreme ends. Only two persons sit between Y and V. V does not face Q. Two persons sit between N and M. N is not an immediate neighbour of P. X does not face Q. L is not at an immediate neighbour of N.

**Answers:**

**1)d 2)a 3)d 4)e 5)a 6)d 7)a 8)b 9)c 10)b 11)c 12)b 13)d 14)a 15)b**

**Solutions:**

**1). d)**Let the speed of the train be S kmph

Relative speed while crossing first person = (S – 4)kmph = (5/18)(S – 4)mps

Length of the train = (5/18)(S – 4) × 8

Relative speed while crossing first person = (S – 8)kmph = (5/18)(S – 8)mps

Length of the train = (5/18)(S – 8) × 9

Since lengths is same in both cases.

(5/18)(S – 4) × 8 = (5/18)(S – 8) × 9 => 8S – 32 = 9S – 72 => S = 40kmph

**2). a)**Let the present ages of Sameer and Anand be 5x years and 4x years respectively.

Therefore, Anand’s present age = 4x = 4 × 6 = 24 years.

**3). d)**Whole work is done by A in 20 × 5/4 = 25 days

Now, [1 – 4/5] i.e, 1/5 work is done by A and B in 3 days

Whole work will be done by A and B in (3 × 5) = 15 Dys

A’s 1 day work = 1/25, (A + B)’s 1 day work = 1/15

Therefore B’s 1 day work = [1/15 – 1/25] = 4/150 = 2/75

So, B alone would do the work in 75/2 days = 37 ½ days

**4). e)**Let the distance be ‘x’ and the original speed be ‘y’.

=>x – 10y – 1200 = 0 ————-> (i)

1500/y + [(x – 1500) x 3/2y] = x/y + 5/2

=>x – 5y – 1500 = 0 —————> (ii)

From eqn (I) and (II), x = 1800 km

y = 60 kmph

**5). a)**The population will be 1200000 × 1.15 × 1.15 × 1.15 = 1825050

**(6– 10):**

**6). d)**

**7). a)**

**8). b)**

**9). c)**

**10). b)**

**11).**The appropriate word is ‘benefit’

**12).**The correct spelling is ‘allot’

**13).**The appropriate word is ‘accepted’

**14).**The appropriate word is ‘reason’

**15).**The appropriate word is ‘Limited’
