    Make yourself cool in the exam. because questions contains lot of bogus things, you have to avoid it home preparation of avoiding may be result a good one. So prepare it.


    First see what answer they want that must be in the last line read it first and then go upwards and take necessary data for that and the solve it, read the data not the lines.

    Some other questions:  

    1.6 persons standing in queue with different age group, after two years their average age will be 43 and seventh person joined with them. hence the current average age has become 45. find the age of seventh person?
    Ans: Let x be current average age of first 6 persons in queue and current age of seventh person be y.  Then 6x will become the sum of those 6 persons age.
                 Now, let compute the sum of those 6 persons after two years, 6x+12 (as each and individual increase their age by 2). hence its average become

    (6x+12)/6 = 43



    Let now we compute y, ((6*41+y)/7) = 45,
    y= 69

    2. Horse started to chase dog as it relieved stable two hrs ago. And horse started to ran with average speed 22km/hr, horse crossed 10 mts road and two small pounds with depth 3m, and it crossed two small street with 200 mts length. After traveling 6 hrs, 2hrs after sunset it got dog. compute the speed of dog?
    Ans: As we have speed and travel time of horse, we can get distance travelled by it...  
    Hence d = 22*6 = 132km,
    Exactly this 132km was travelled by dog in 8 hours (as it started two hours earlier).
    Hence speed of dog = 132/8 = 16.5km/hr
    Ans: 16.5km/hr.

    3. 3, 22 , 7, 45, 15, ? , 31
    Solution: here let group alternate terms 3,7,15,31 (3+4 =7, 7+8 =15, 15+16=31)
    Similarly for second group (22,45,? (22+23 = 45, 45+46 = 91) hence ans is 91.

    rat lies on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and rest of the ............................
    rat and lion said one day that yesterday only i lied
    on which day they said




    5. If we subract a number with y, we get 4 increase of number, once it got divided by y itself.. Find that number??
    Ans: 12 (we can easily predict from options, as we take y as 6)
