1. 7, 9, 12, 48, ?, 890

A. 128
B. 190
C. 172
D. 168
E. None of these

Explanation:
Series Pattern

7 × 1 + 1 × 2 = 9

9 × 2 – 2 × 3 = 12

12 × 3 + 3 × 4 = 48

48 × 4 – 4 × 5 = 172

172 × 5 + 5 × 6 = 890

2. 47 58 71 79 95 ?

A. 108
B. 107
C. 105
D. 109
E. None of the above

Explanation:
Series Pattern

47 + (7 + 4) = 58

58 + (5 + 8) = 71

71 + (7 + 1) = 79

79 + (7 + 9) = 95

95 + (9 + 5) = 109

1. If 2 is added to the first digit of every even number and 1 is subtracted from the first digit of every odd number, what will be the difference between the 2nd largest and 2nd smallest number?

A. 455
B. 211
C. 559
D. 317
E. None of these

Explanation
The given sequence:
657 412 568 413 672

The new sequence:
557 612 768 313 872

The sequence in ascending order:
313 557 612 768 872

The 2nd largest number = 768

The 2nd smallest number = 557

The required difference = 768 – 557 = 211

2. If all the digits in each of the numbers are arranged in descending order within the number, what will be the square of the sum of the digits of the largest number?

A. 361
B. 441
C. 324
D. 400
E. None of these

Explanation:
The given sequence:
657 412 568 413 672

Clearly, if the digits in each of the numbers are arranged in descending order, the largest unit digit among all will become the largest number after the rearrangement.

If we observe, we find that the largest unit digit we get in the number ‘568’ and if we arrange its digits in descending order the number becomes: 865

Sum of its digits = 8 + 6 + 5 = 19

Square of 19 = 361

Thus, it has 1 odd day only.

The day on 8th April, 2005 will be 1 day beyond the day on 8th April, 2004.

Given that, 8th March, 2005 is Monday.

8th March, 2004 is Sunday (1 day before to 8th March, 2005).

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

Jan. Feb. March April May

(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 1) = 121 days 2 odd days.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 2) = 2

On 1st May, 2001 it was Tuesday.

In May, 2001 Thursday falls on 3th, 10th, 17th and 24th, 31st.
