2.Data SUfficiency (5 questions)
3.Coding (5 questions)
4.Cubes (5 questions)
5.Puzzle type (5 questions)

* A group is divided into three. The first group is persons of 5'6 height and second and third r 6'0 and 6'6 respectively. There r totally 130 peoples, 50 of them r 5'6 and 65 of them r 6'6, 10 of them r 5'6 and 6'6, 15 of them r 5'6 and 6, 20 of them r 6'6 and 6, and 5 of them r all the three.
1.(i) How many of them r 6 feet?
(Ans 70)

2.(ii) How many of them r only 6 feet?
(Ans 30)
(iii) How many of them are only 5'6?
(Ans 20)

3.(iv) How many of them are only 6'6?

v/.; Acube is cut into 64 equal cubes.... now from each side of the original cube, 2nd and 3rd small cube are removed...now the whole thing is painted black. i) no of cubes which are not painted ii) no of cubes which are painted 1 face iii) no of cubes which are painted 2 faces iv) no of cubes which are painted 3 faces v) no of cubes which are painted in more than 3 faces

Solution:-imagine the figure...2nd and 3rd cube from each side(edge) is removed...so total 24 cubes are removed...40 cubes r remaining.. . now if it is painted...32 cubes will be pained in 3 faces and 8 cubes will be painted in 6 faces...so the answers are...
i) 0
ii)O
iii) 0
iv)32
v) 8

There are 729 cubes and from the edges the 1st, 3'd,5th , i h and 9th pieces are removed and the remaining are painted in black.
1) Find the number not coloured black
2) Find the number with 2 sides Black
3) Find the number with 1 side black
4) Find the number with 3 sides black
5) Find the number with more than 3 sides black

First answer the last question its Zero since none can be colored with more than 3 sides.

Logic: 729 cubes means 9 X 9 X 9 cubes, so there are a total of B cuts on each perpendicular plane. Now on each plane you are removing the 1st,3rd,5th,7th and 9th.Just add on each side and remember the 1st and 9th will be same for two adjacent edges and now start counting.
