Q 1 - In a queue, the rank of Sanjay is 10^{th} from the front while the rank of Ajay is 25^{th} from behind. 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 Meera from the front.

Options :

Let’s find the total number of persons present between Sanjay and Ajay = 50 - (10 + 25) = 15.

Meera lies in between these 15 persons. That means we can conclude that from Sanjay’s position, she will be at 8^{th} and 18^{th} from the front end.

Q 2 - Number of girls are standing in a row. Between Sita and Gita, 4 number of girls are present. From the left hand side, the rank of Sita is 14 and from right hand side, the rank of Gita is 7^{th}. Calculate the total number of girls.

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

Options :

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 10^{th} from Sunil.

Q 5 - Ram’s rank was wrongly printed as 12^{th} from below instead of 13^{th}. What will be his rank from top if the total number of students is 27?

Options :

New rank from the top will be = (27 - 13) + 1 = 15

Q 6 - Total 52 students are present in a class. From below, Sameera’s rank is 17. What is her rank from the top?

Options :

Total number of students present ahead of Sameera is = 52 - 17 = 35

Hence; the rank of Sameera is 36 from top.

Q 7 - Rank of Deepak is 9 ahead that of Sandhya in a class of 32 students. The rank of Sandhya is 27. Now calculate the rank of Deepak.

Options :

Rank of Sandhya is 26 from top. That means the rank of Deepak from top = 27 - 9 = 18

Now Deepak’s rank from bottom = (32 - 18) + 1 = 15

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 - Rank of Gopi is 13^{th} from the top in a group of 35 students. Find his rank from below if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.

Options :

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

= (35 - 13) + 1

= 23

Now as, 3 students will be added to the bottom of the list, the new rank of Gopi from bottom will be = 23 + 3 = 26

Q 10 - 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 3 new girls will be eliminated from the back of the list?

Options :

Rank of Snigdha before elimination of three girls from bottom = (55 - 15) + 1 = 41

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