Options :

= 30

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

Total number of boys present in Mannu’s row = (12 + 6) - 1 = 17

D - 26

Answer : D

Explanation

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

Q 10 - Rank of Madhaba is 14th 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 :

A - 50

B - 51

C - 52

D - 54

Answer : B

Explanation

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 51 from the top, even after the addition.
