Answer key

 

1 - B Solution: All except HNLJ has one vowel. So the odd letter group is option (B)

2 -A Solution: First, the letter of word written in reverse order and then each alphabet moves 1 step backward I.e. ELPMET- DKOLDA ​​ Similarly, PIHSROW- OHGRQNV

3-​​ D Solution:7+6=13, 13+8=21 Similarly, 2+6=8, 8+8=16

4-​​ A Solution : endurance, stability and persistence means the state of being stable. And Tendency relates to the ability of a person to do something. Hence, the odd word is (a) tendency.​​ 

5-​​ B Solution: Sun is the source of heat. Likewise, fruit is the source of vitamin. Therefore, the correct option is(B)

6-​​ C Solution: C = 3, A = 1, B =2 The code is given by the multiplication of these place values. CAB = 3 x 1 x 2 = 6 Similarly, BED= 2 x 5 x 4 = 40 Therefore, HAD = 8 x 1 x 4 = 32

7-​​ B Solution: Except FGHJ, all other options are having first two letters in​​ reverse order. Hence, option (B) is different from the rest.

8-​​ D Solution: The sum of all the numbers in the given number set is even 5 + 13 + 12 =30  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ So, the given options 13 + 17 + 11 = 41 (odd),11 + 15 + 9 = 35 (odd), 15 + 19 + 13 = 47 (odd), 6 + 10 + 8 = 24 (even)

9-D Solution: M-1=L,N+1=O,O-1=N,P+1=Q ​​ Similarly, F-1=E,G+1=H, H-1=G, I+1=J option (D) EHGJ

10-D Solution: Series is increasing by 3, 6, 9, 15, 18(multiple of 3)​​
