Q 1 - Kashyap’s progress report card showed that his rank is 9^{th} among 49 students. Calculate the rank of Kashyap from below.

Q 2 - In a ticket counter, 3 persons X, Y, Z are standing. In between X and Y there are 5 persons and in between Y and Z, there are 8 persons present. If ahead of Z there are 3 persons and 21 persons are standing behind X, what is could be the minimum number of persons in the queue?

Options :

Q 3 - In a row of 40 sheep, the position of a sheep from the top is 27 and similarly in a group of 30 buffalos, the position of a buffalo from last is 13. Calculate the difference between the ranks of that sheep from last and that buffalo from 1^{st}.

Options :

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

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

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

Q 4 - In a nursery, I saw a group of small rose trees arranged in a row. However, one rose tree caught my attention very much. I started counting its rank from the left hand side and found out to be 12. When I started counting from right hand side, it was again 12!! What is the total number of rose trees that were arranged in that row?

Options :

As the rank of the tree is same from either side, the total number of trees will be

12 + 12 - 1

= 23

Q 5 - Rank of Snigdha is 15^{th} from the top in a list of 55 girls. What would be her new rank from the bottom, if three new girls are removed from the back of the list?

Options :

Rank of Snigdha before removal of three girls from bottom = (5515) + 1 = 41

Now removal of 3 girls from the bottom of the list will reduce the rank of Snigdha further less by 3 from bottom. So, the new rank will be = 41 - 3 = 38

Q 6 - Deepak’s progress report card showed that his rank is 10^{th} among 50 students. Calculate the rank of Deepak from below.

Options :

The rank of Deepak can be calculated as = (50 - 10) + 1 = 41

Q 7 - The rank of X is 6^{th} from left and rank of Y is 18^{th} from right hand side in a row of letters. Calculate the extra number of letters required to make it a group of 30, if there are 6 letters present in between X and Y.

Options :

As per ranking of Y and X and the presence of 6 letters in between them, the total number of letters in the row will be

= 6 + 18 + 6

= 30

Now we can see that it is already a group of 30 letters. Hence; no more letters are required to be added to the group.

Q 8 - The rank of Soumya in a group of students is 11^{th} from top and 15^{th} from below. What would be his rank from below, if he will be placed in 21^{st} place from the top?

Options :

In the first case, the total number of students will be

= 11 + 15 - 1 = 25

Among 25 numbers of students, if Soumya will be placed in 21^{st} position from top, the rank from below will be

25 - 21 + 1

= 5

Q 9 - Harish’s rank is 14^{th} from the top and 13^{th} from the bottom in a group of boys. Similarly, in a group of girls, the rank of Sona is 16^{th} from top and 19^{th} from bottom. What is number of boys and girls respectively?

Options :

As per the rank of Harish, the total number of boys

= 14 + 13 - 1

= 26

As per the rank of Sona, the total number of girls will be

= 16 + 19 - 1

= 34

Q 10 - Rank of Vijay is 15^{th} from the top and 18^{th} from the bottom of the list that shows the qualified candidates. Total 35 candidates have not qualified. Find the total number of applicants.

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

So, total number of applicants is 67.
