Q 1 - Forty students are sitting in a row. From left, the position of Ram is 13^{th}. Find the rank of Ram from the right end.

Options :

Total number of students is 40.

From the right hand side, the rank of Ram can be written as

Total + left - 1

= 40 - 13 + 1

= 27 + 1

= 28

Q 2 - In a row of students, the position of Ram is 7^{th} from the left hand side and that of Shyam is 12^{th} from the right hand side. Now for some reason, they interchanged their positions. Now, 22 is the new rank of Ram from the left hand side. Calculate the total number of students present in that row.

Options :

Earlier the rank of Shyam was 12^{th} from the right hand side. Now at the same position the rank of Ram is 22^{nd} from left hand side. Hence adding both side students and eliminating the repeated person, the total number of students will be

22 + 12 - 1

= 33

Q 3 - Out of 46 students, rank of Shiva is ranked as 12^{th}. What will be his rank from below?

Options :

This can be simply calculated as = (total students - rank from top) + 1

So 46 – 12 + 1

= 34 + 1 = 35

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 - If the rank of Hari is 8^{th} from the top in a group of 35 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 Hari will not change his rank from bottom. Before addition, the rank of Hari from bottom is

= (35 - 8) + 1 = 28

Now adding 2 candidates just after Hari will increase his rank by 2 positions. Hence; the new rank of Hari from bottom will be = 28 + 2 = 30.

Q 6 - 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 29. How many dancers are there in the line?

Options :

Total number of dancers will be = 29 + 29 + 1 = 59

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 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 - Raju arranged different colours of books on the floor in a row. The red colour book is placed at 12^{th} from the left and white colour is placed at 8^{th} from the right. Other books of 5 colours were placed in between them. Calculate total how many different colours of books did Raju arrange?

Options :

As we have already solved this type of problems earlier, we can directly write, the total number of different coloured books will be

= (rank of white colour book) + (rank of red colour book) + Total number of books present in between them

= 8 + 12 + 5

= 25

Q 10 - Kashyap’s rank was wrongly printed as 11^{th} from below instead of 12^{th}. What will be his rank from top if the total number of students is 37?

Options :

New rank from the top will be = (37 - 12) + 1 = 26
