The simplest triangles are AKI, AIL, EKD, LFB, DJC, DKJ, KIJ, ILJ, JLB, BJC, DHC and BCG i.e. 12 in number.
The triangles composed of two components each are AKJ, ALJ, AKL, ADJ, AJB and DBC i.e. 6 in number.
The triangles composed of the three components each are ADC and ABC i.e. 2 in number.
There is only one triangle i.e. ADB composed of four components.
Thus, there are 12 + 6 + 2 + 1 = 21 triangles in the figure.

Q:

Observe the dots on a dice (one to six dots) in the following figures. How many dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots?

A) 2 B) 3
C) 6 D) Cannot be determined
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 2

Explanation:

We shall assume the dice in fig. (ii) to be rotated so that the 5 dots appear at the same position as in fig. (i) i.e. on RHS face (i.e. on face II as per activity 1) and 1 dot appears at the same position as in fig; (i) i.e. on Front face (i.e. on face I). Then, from the, two figures, 2 dots appear on the top face (i.e. on face V) and 4 dots appear on the Bottom face (i.e. on face VI).

 

Since, these two faces are opposite to each other, therefore, two dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots.

Q:

What will be the number at the bottom, if 5 is at the top; the two positions of the dice being as given below:

A) 1 B) 2
C) 3 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2

Explanation:

From figures (i) and (ii), it is clear that 4, 1, 3 and 6 he adjacent to 2. Therefore, 5 must lie opposite 2. Thus, if 5 is at the top, then 2 must be at the bottom.

Q:

Count the number of triangles and squares in the given figure.

A) 36 triangles, 7 Squares B) 38 triangles, 9 Squares
C) 40 triangles, 7 Squares D) 42 triangles, 9 Squares
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 40 triangles, 7 Squares

Explanation:

The figure may be labelled as shown 

 

 

Triangles :

 


The Simplest triangles are BGM, GHM, HAM, ABM, GIN, IJN, JHN, HGN, IKO, KLO, LJO, JIO, KDP, DEP, ELP, LKP, BCD and AFE i.e 18 in number

 

The triangles composed of two components each are ABG, BGH, GHA, HAB, HGI, GIJ, IJH, JHG, JIK, IKL, KLJ,LJI, LKD, KDE, DEL and ELK i.e 16 in number.

 

The triangles composed of four components each are BHI, GJK, ILD, AGJ, HIL and JKE i.e 6 in number.

 

Total number of triangles in the figure = 18 + 16 + 6 =40.

 

Squares :

 


The Squares composed of two components each are MGNH, NIOJ, and OKPL i.e 3 in number

 

The Squares composed of four components each are BGHA, GIJH, IKJL and KDEL i.e 4 in number

 

Total number of squares in the figure = 3 + 4 =7

Q:

A university library budget committee must reduce exactly five of eight areas of expenditure—I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P—in accordance with the following conditions:

If both I and O are reduced, P is also reduced.
If L is reduced, neither N nor O is reduced.
If M is reduced, J is not reduced.
Of the three areas J, K, and N exactly two are reduced.

 

Question :

If both K and N are reduced, which one of the following is a pair of areas neither of which could be reduced?

A) I, L B) J, L
C) J, M D) I, J
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) J, L

Explanation:

This question concerns a committee’s decision about which five of eight areas of expenditure to reduce. The question requires you to suppose that K and N are among the areas that are to be reduced, and then to determine which pair of areas could not also be among the five areas that are reduced.

The fourth condition given in the passage on which this question is based requires that exactly two of K, N, and J are reduced. Since the question asks us to suppose that both K and N are reduced, we know that J must not be reduced:

Reduced         ::      K, N
Not reduced   ::      J

The second condition requires that if L is reduced, neither N nor O is reduced. So L and N cannot both be reduced. Here, since N is reduced, we know that L cannot be. Thus, adding this to what we’ve determined so far, we know that J and L are a pair of areas that cannot both be reduced if both K and N are reduced:

Reduced        ::      K, N
Not reduced  ::      J, L

Answer choice (B) is therefore the correct answer.
