Q:

There are eight poets, namely, A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H in respect of whom questions are being asked in the examination. The first four are ancient poets and the last four are modern poets. The question on ancient and modern poets is being asked in alternate years. Those who like H also like G, those who like D like C also. The examiner who sets question is not likely to ask question on D because he has written an article on him. But he likes D. Last year a question was asked on F. Considering these facts, on whom the question is most likely to be asked this year ?

Answer

Answer : C


Explanation : 


Since the examiner likes D, it means he must like C also, since the question states that those who like D like C also.


Since last year a question was asked on F, who is a modern poet, this year a question will be asked on an ancient poet which means A,B,C or D


Now the examiner is not likely to ask question on D because he has written an article on him. So he will ask the question on C since he likes C as well

Q:

What is the number of triangles that can be formed whose vertices are the vertices of an octagon but have only one side common with that of octagon?

A) 64 B) 32
C) 24 D) 16
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 32

Explanation:

  

 

When the triangles are drawn in an octagon with vertices same as those of the octagon and having one side common to that of the octagon, the figure will appear as shown in (Fig. 1).

 

   

 

Now, we shall first consider the triangles having only one side AB common with octagon ABCDEFGH and having vertices common with the octagon (See Fig. 2).Such triangles are ABD, ABE, ABF and ABG i.e. 4 in number.

 

 

 

Similarly, the triangles having only one side BC common with the octagon and also having vertices common with the octagon are BCE, BCF, BCG and BCH (as shown in Fig. 3). i.e. There are 4 such triangles.

 

This way, we have 4 triangles for each side of the octagon. Thus, there are 8 x 4 = 32 such triangles.

Q:

A dice is numbered from 1 to 6 in different ways.

If 1 is adjacent to 2, 4 and 6, then which of the following statements is necessarily true?

A) 2 is opposite to 6 B) 1 is adjacent to 3
C) 3 is adjacent to 5 D) 3 is opposite to 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 3 is adjacent to 5

Explanation:

If 1 is adjacent to 2, 4 and 6 then either 3 or 5 lies opposite to 1. So, the numbers 3 and 5 cannot lie opposite to each other. Hence, 3 is adjacent to 5 (necessarily).
