Questions and Answers

Q 1 - A group of dancers are standing in a line for their performance. Joseph tried to calculate his rank from the either side and found that his rank is 19th. Find the total number of dancers standing in that line.

Options :

A - 36

B - 37

C - 38

D - 39

Answer : B

Explanation

If we will count till Joseph from the left side, then he will be 19 dancer. Similarly, from right hand side, the total number of students till joseph will also be 19. Now adding both and subtracting 1 (dual occurrence of Joseph) we will get = 19 + 19 - 1 = 37.

Now, as 13 persons have been wrongly listed, so total number of persons present in the list are

50 - 13 = 37

Explanation

Sujay’s current rank from below in a group of 25 students is

25 - 21 + 1

= 5

Q 9 - Rank of Luna is 13th from the top in a group of 88 students. Find his rank from top if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.

Q 10 - Rank of Madhaba is 14th from the bottom in a list of 64 boys. What would be his new rank from the top if 3 new boys will be added to the bottom of the list?

Options :

A - 50

B - 51

C - 52

D - 54

Answer : B

Explanation

Total number of students in the row = 64

Rank of Madhaba from the bottom = 14

So, rank of Madhaba from top would be = (64 - 14) + 1 = 51

Now as adding of new boys to the bottom of the list will not affect the rank of Madhaba from top, hence; his rank will be the 51 from the top, even after the addition.
