Questions and Answers

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

Options :

A - 23 and 20

B - 25 and 20

C - 25 and 21

D - None of these

Answer : C

Explanation

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

Therefore Raj’s rank is 25th from below.

Now calculating for Shini = 31 - 11 = 20

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

Q 2 - A group of mountaineers were climbing a mountain. One of them started counting his rank and found that it is 9 from the top and 38 from the bottom. Calculate the total number of mountaineers.

Options :

A - 44

B - 45

Q 3 - In a list, the rank of Mahesh was 16 from the top and whereas from bottom, the rank is 29. The list was about the passed-out students. Six students were failed due to non participation and 5 were failed. Find the total number of students present in the class.

Options :

A - 55

B - 54

C - 53

D - 52

Answer : A

Explanation

Total number of passed out students including Mahesh is

= 29 + 16 - 1 = 44

Now adding the failed students into it = 44 + (5 + 6) = 55 is the total number of students.

Q 4 - Rank of Sujay is 14th from the top 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 :

A - 15

B - 11

C - 12

D - 13

Answer : A

Explanation

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

= (25 - 14) + 1

= 12

Now as 3 students will be added to the bottom of the list, the new rank of Sujay from bottom = 12 + 3 = 15

Q 5 - 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 same 51 from the top, even after the addition.

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.

Options :

A - 17

B - 18

C - 19

D - 20

Answer : B

Explanation

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

Ram lies in between these 15 persons. That means we can conclude that from Sojoy’s position, he will be at 8th position and from front end his rank will be 18th.

Q 7 - In a row of boys, one tree is ranked as 16th from left and 8th from right. Calculate the number of boys who should be removed to make it a total of 17.

Options :

A - 2

B - 3

C - 4

D - 6

Answer : D

Explanation

Total number of boys currently = (16 + 8) - 1 = 23

So, 6 numbers of boys should be removed to make it a total of 17.

Q 8 - In a row of 40 autos, the position of an auto from the top is 27 and similarly in a group of 30 cars, the position of a car from last is 13. Calculate the difference between the ranks of that auto from last and that car from 1st.

Options :

A - 16

B - 14

C - 15

D - 13

Answer : B

Explanation

The rank of that auto from the last = (40 - 27) + 1 = 14

The rank of that car from 1st will be = (30 - 13) + 1 = 28

Now the difference of rank is = 28 - 14 = 14

Q 9 - After the declaration of final result, Kumar found out that his rank is 6 below as that of Ashok, in a class having strength of 29. He also found out that from the last, his rank is 16th. Find out the rank of Ashok from the 1st.

Options :

A - 8th

B - 9th

C - 14th

D - 16th

Answer : A

Explanation

From below, the rank of Kumar is 16th. Now from the 1st, his rank will be

= (29 - 16) + 1

= 14

As Ashok is 7 rank ahead of Kumar, his rank will be (14 - 6 = 8th) from the beginning.

Q 10 - If the rank of Harish is 8th from the top in a group of 28 candidates and 2 new candidates are added just before and after him, what will be his new rank from bottom?

Options :

A - 23

B - 30

C - 28

D - 27

Answer : A

Explanation

Adding of candidates just before Harish will not change his rank from bottom. Before addition, the rank of Harish from bottom is

= (28 - 8) + 1 = 21

Now adding 2 candidates just after Harish will increase his rank by 2 positions. Hence; Harish’s new rank from bottom will be = 21 + 2 = 23
