Answers :

Directions (1 –5):

Step 1:

Difference between the product of first digits from both the blocks and product of second digits from both the blocks i.e. 6 × 7 = 42 and 3 × 5 = 15.

Difference between 42 and 15 is 27.

Same process is applied in all pair of blocks.

Step 2:

In this step, first digit of each block is added and then multiplied by 3 and the result is added to 18 i.e. (2 + 1 + 1) × 6 + 9 = 33

Same process is to be repeated (on second digits of all three blocks) to get the second block.

Step 3:

In this step, square of first digit of first block and square of first digit from second block is added and then product of first digit from both the blocks is subtracted from it i.e. 32 + 32 – 3 × 3 = 09.

Same process is done on second digits of previous blocks to get the second block of this step.

Step 4:

Difference between the sum of the blocks and difference of both the blocks is calculated to get the final answer i.e. 09 + 63 = 72; and difference between 63 and 09 is 54.

Finally, difference between 72 and 54 is 18.

Same procedure is applied for the given input:

1) Answer: A

2) Answer: A

3) Answer: B

4) Answer: D

5) Answer: E

Directions (6-8) :

6) Answer: D

7) Answer: E

8) Answer: C

9) Answer: C)

Rise in the fare, and being too much crowded give inconvenience to riders, hence are the reasons for the decrease in ridership by the Metro.

So, option (C) is the correct answer.

Option 2 represents positive-benefit of the metro, while Option 1 illustrates a quality of the Delhi metro.

10) Answer: E

Both I and II are actions that would reduce air pollution, and hence should be the courses of action.
