Q 1 - In a dance competition, many dancers are standing in a single line. From both the sides, the rank of a dancer is found to be 19. How many dancers are there in the line?

Options :

Q 2 - Total number of students in a class is 60 out of which 40 have been selected for a dance competition. The number of boys is half of those girls who are selected for dance competition. The rank of Harish from the top is 17^{th} and there are 9 girls ahead of him in that rank. Calculate the number of boys present after Harish.

Options :

As the number of boys is half of that girls, so out of 60, the only possible combination of boys and girls can be in the number of 20 and 40 respectively.

Now 9 girls are present ahead of Harish means that, the total number of boys till 17^{th} rank is 8(including Harish). So, the rest number of boys those are present after Harish are;

20 - 8 = 12

Q 3 - Rank of Kamla is 8 ahead that of Vidya in a class of total students 42. The rank of Vidya is 26. Now calculate the rank of Kamla.

Options :

Rank of Vidya is 26 from top. That means the rank of Kamla from top = 26 - 8 = 18

Now Kamla’s rank from bottom = (42 - 18) + 1 = 25

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

Options :

There will be no change in the ranking list from the top, if we are adding students to the bottom of the list.

Q 5 - Rank of Saksi was mistakenly written as 12^{th} from top out of 28 students but management found out that her actual rank is 13^{th} from bottom. What will be her new rank from top?

Options :

As the new rank from below is 13^{th}, then from top it will be

= (28 - 13) + 1

= 16

Q 6 - A group of dancers are standing in a line for their performance. Snigdha tried to calculate her rank from the either side and found that her rank is 20^{th}. Find the total number of dancers standing in that line.

Options :

From the left side, if we will calculate till the rank of Snigdha, then it will be 20 students. Similarly from right hand side, the total number of students till Snigdha will also be 20. Now adding both and subtracting 1 we will get 20 + 20 - 1 = 39.

Q 7 - In a class, 28 students are there. The rank of Mitu and Radhika is 5^{th} and 10^{th} respectively from the top. Calculate their rank from the bottom.

Options :

If the rank of the person from the top is x.

Then rank of the person from below among total Y number of persons will be

= (Y - X) + 1

Q 8 - The rank of Sanjaya is 24^{th} from top and 26^{th} from bottom in a list. If 13 persons have been wrongly listed and will be removed, then what will be the total number of persons in the list?

Options :

Before eliminating the wrongly listed names, the total number of persons present in that list will be

= 24 + 26 - 1

= 49

Now, as 13 persons have been wrongly listed, removing them will make the list with number of people = 49 - 13 = 36.

Q 9 - Rank of Luna is 13^{th} 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.

Adding the list of disqualified candidates to it = 32 + 35 = 67

So, total number of applicants is 67.
