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.

A - 5

B - 6

C - 7

D - 8

Answer : C

Explanation

In the first case the total number of students will be

= 12 + 16 - 1 = 27

Among 27 numbers of students, if Biswa will be placed in 21st position from top, his rank from below will be

27 - 21 + 1

= 7

Q 4 - In a cinema hall, 35 viewers were sitting in a row. From the right hand side, the position of Kamal was 7th whereas position of Sunil from the left hand side was 9th. Manoj was sitting exactly in between Kamal and Sunil. Find the position of Kamal from Sunil.

Options :

A - 10

B - 11

C - 12

D - 13

Answer : A

Explanation

Number of viewers sitting in between Kamal and Sunil can be calculated as

35 - (9 + 7) = 19

So we can say now that 9 viewers were present in between Kamal - Manoj and Manoj - Sunil. So the position of Kamal is 10th from Sunil.

Options :

B - 22

C - 23

D - 24

Answer : B

Explanation

Rank of Radhika from top = (64 - 34) + 1 = 31

Now number of candidates lying in between Radhika and Suresh are

Q 6 - In a queue, the rank of Sojoy from front is 10th while from behind the rank of Deepak is 25th. 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.
