Q 1 - Raj and Shini are ranked 7^{th} and 11^{th} respectively from the top among 31 students. Determine their ranks from the bottom.

Options :

Total numbers of students present behind the rank of Raj = 31 - 7 = 24

Therefore Raj’s rank is 25^{th} from below.

Now calculating for Shini = 31 - 11 = 20

This means that Shini’s rank will be 21^{st} from bottom.

Q 2 - Total number of students in a class is 60 out of which 40 have been selected for a dance competition. The number of boys is half of those girls who are selected for dance competition. The rank of Harish from the top is 17^{th} and there are 9 girls ahead of him in that rank. Calculate the number of boys present after Harish.

Options :

As the number of boys is half of that girls, so out of 60, the only possible combination of boys and girls can be in the number of 20 and 40 respectively.

Now 9 girls are present ahead of Harish means that, the total number of boys till 17^{th} rank is 8(including Harish). So, the rest number of boys those are present after Harish are;

20 - 8 = 12

Q 3 - Rank of Kamla is 8 ahead that of Vidya in a class of total students 42. The rank of Vidya is 26. Now calculate the rank of Kamla.

Options :

Rank of Vidya is 26 from top. That means the rank of Kamla from top = 26 - 8 = 18

Now Kamla’s rank from bottom = (42 - 18) + 1 = 25

Q 4 - Rank of Sujay is 17^{th} from the bottom in a group of 25 students. Find his rank from below if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.

Options :

Simply it will add 3 more ranks to the current position of Sujay

= 17 + 3 = 20

Q 5 - Rank of Madhaba is 14^{th} 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 :

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 same 51 from the top, even after the addition.

Q 6 - In a line 40 boys are standing. Ratika got shifted to the 10 place right of Sambit and Mona got shifted 10 places left of Sambit. If the position of Sambit is 26 from the left and there were only 3 boys between Ratika and Sambit, who were shifting, find the position of Sambit in the row from right.

Options :

Here to solve this problem some more data is required.

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 - In a queue, from the front side, the rank of Amarendra is 10^{th} and Manas is ranked as 25^{th} from behind. Tanmaya is present in the middle of the two persons. If the total number of persons in the queue is 50, then calculate the rank of Tanmaya from the front.

Options :

Rank of Manas is 25^{th} from behind. Then from the front side Manas’s rank will be = (50 - 25) + 1 = 26

Between 10^{th} rank and 26^{th} rank, there are 15 students and the middle position will be 8^{th} one. Now, the rank of Tanmaya from the front side will be

= Rank of Amarendra from front side + 8

= 10 + 8

= 18

Q 9 - Rank of Luna is 13^{th} from the top in a group of 88 students. Find his rank from top if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.
