Detailed Explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:
1.

There are four such pairs.
2.The first letter becomes the second; the second letter becomes the fourth; the
Third letter becomes the first; and the fourth letter becomes the third.
3. This is a shade rather than a colour.
4. The third, the fifth and the eight-digits are 2,8 and 9.The possible three are 289, 298, 829, 928 and 982. Of these, only 289 is a perfect square. It is the square of 17 and hence this will be the required two-digit odd number. Its second digit is obliviously 7.
5. All others are multiples of 6.
6. The given word: C A T E G O R Y
Alphabetically: A C E G O R T Y
We find that only Y maintains its position when the word is arranged in alphabetical order.
7. (i) Dividing the word into two halves, we get
MIST    AKEN
(ii) Now, code the letters of the first half one letter backward and those of the second half one letter forward. We get
LHRS    BLFO
(iii) Reversing the letters in each half, we get
SRHL      OFLB
Hence the final code is SRHLOFLB.
Now, let us apply the same steps to GROUNDED.
(i)           GROU  NDED
(ii)         FQNT   OEFE
(iii)        TNQF   EFEO
Hence the final code is TNQFEFEO
8. Interchanging the digits, we get the following rearrangement:
36478912
Clearly, 8 is the fourth digit from the right end.
9. Fish live in water. But here โMountainโ means โWaterโ.
Hence, โmountainโ.
10. nik ka pa=who are youโฆโฆโฆโฆ.(i)
Ka na tad a =you may come hereโฆโฆ. (ii)
Ho ta sa =come and goโฆโฆโฆโฆ.(iii)
From (i) and (ii), ka=you.
Eliminating this from (i),we get
Nik pa=who are, Hence nik means โwhoโ or โareโ.
