Q 1 - Raj and Shini are ranked 7^{th} and 11^{th} respectively from the top among 31 students. Determine their ranks from the bottom.

Options :

Total numbers of students present behind the rank of Raj = 31 - 7 = 24

Therefore Raj’s rank is 25^{th} from below.

Now calculating for Shini = 31 - 11 = 20

This means that Shini’s rank will be 21^{st} from bottom.

Q 2 - A group of mountaineers were climbing a mountain. One of them started counting his rank and found that it is 9 from the top and 38 from the bottom. Calculate the total number of mountaineers.

Options :

Again it is simple. Just add the top and below rank and subtract 1 to get the total number of mountaineers.

Q 3 - In a list, the rank of Mahesh was 16 from the top and whereas from bottom, the rank is 29. The list was about the passed-out students. Six students were failed due to non participation and 5 were failed. Find the total number of students present in the class.

Options :

Total number of passed out students including Mahesh is

= 29 + 16 - 1 = 44

Now adding the failed students into it = 44 + (5 + 6) = 55 is the total number of students.

Q 4 - Rank of Sujay is 14^{th} from the top in a group of 25 students. Find his rank from below if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.

Options :

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

= (25 - 14) + 1

= 12

Now as 3 students will be added to the bottom of the list, the new rank of Sujay from bottom = 12 + 3 = 15

Q 5 - Rank of Madhaba is 14^{th} 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 :

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 same 51 from the top, even after the addition.

Q 6 - In a queue, the rank of Sojoy from front is 10^{th} while from behind the rank of Deepak is 25^{th}. Meera is present in the middle of the two. It is given that the total number of persons is 50. Then determine the rank of Ram from the front.

Options :

Let’s find the total number of persons present between Sojoy and Deepak = 50 - (10 + 25) = 15

Ram lies in between these 15 persons. That means we can conclude that from Sojoy’s position, he will be at 8^{th} position and from front end his rank will be 18^{th}.

Q 7 - In a row of boys, one tree is ranked as 16^{th} from left and 8^{th} from right. Calculate the number of boys who should be removed to make it a total of 17.

Options :

Total number of boys currently = (16 + 8) - 1 = 23

So, 6 numbers of boys should be removed to make it a total of 17.

Q 8 - In a row of 40 autos, the position of an auto from the top is 27 and similarly in a group of 30 cars, the position of a car from last is 13. Calculate the difference between the ranks of that auto from last and that car from 1^{st}.

Options :

The rank of that auto from the last = (40 - 27) + 1 = 14

The rank of that car from 1^{st} will be = (30 - 13) + 1 = 28

Now the difference of rank is = 28 - 14 = 14

Q 9 - After the declaration of final result, Kumar found out that his rank is 6 below as that of Ashok, in a class having strength of 29. He also found out that from the last, his rank is 16^{th}. Find out the rank of Ashok from the 1^{st}.

Options :

From below, the rank of Kumar is 16^{th}. Now from the 1st, his rank will be

= (29 - 16) + 1

= 14

As Ashok is 7 rank ahead of Kumar, his rank will be (14 - 6 = 8^{th}) from the beginning.

Q 10 - If the rank of Harish is 8^{th} from the top in a group of 28 candidates and 2 new candidates are added just before and after him, what will be his new rank from bottom?

Options :

Adding of candidates just before Harish will not change his rank from bottom. Before addition, the rank of Harish from bottom is

= (28 - 8) + 1 = 21

Now adding 2 candidates just after Harish will increase his rank by 2 positions. Hence; Harish’s new rank from bottom will be = 21 + 2 = 23
