Q 1 - A group of dancers are standing in a line for their performance. Joseph tried to calculate his rank from the either side and found that his rank is 19^{th}. Find the total number of dancers standing in that line.

Options :

If we will count till Joseph from the left side, then he will be 19 dancer. Similarly, from right hand side, the total number of students till joseph will also be 19. Now adding both and subtracting 1 (dual occurrence of Joseph) we will get = 19 + 19 - 1 = 37.

Q 2 - In a class, total 31 students are there. The rank of Bitu and Kikku is 7 and 11 respectively from the top. Calculate their rank from the bottom side.

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 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 - Rahim arranged different colours of balls on the floor in a row. The red colour ball is placed 14^{th} from the left and white colour is placed 7^{th} from the right. There are other four colours of ball were placed in between them. How many different colours of ball did Rahim arranged?

Options :

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

= (rank of white colour ball) + (rank of red colour ball) + Total number of balls present in between them

= 7 + 14 + 4

= 25

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 - Rajshri and Shinde are ranked 8^{th} and 12^{th} respectively from the top among 31 students. Determine their ranks from the bottom.

Options :

Total number of students present behind the rank of Rajshri = 31 - 8 = 23

Therefore Rajshri’s rank is 24^{th} from below.

The rank of Shinde is = 31 - 12 = 19

This means that Shinde’s rank will be 20^{th} from bottom.

Q 7 - Calculate the total number of dancers needed to make it 60, if rank of a dancer in that group is 8^{th} from the top and 27^{th} from the bottom.

Options :

Total number of dancers now = (8 + 27) - 1 = 34

Extra dancers needed = 60 - 34 = 26

Q 8 - The rank of Sanjaya is 24^{th} from top and 26^{th} from bottom in a list. If 13 persons have been wrongly listed and will be removed, then what will be the total number of persons in the list?

Options :

Before eliminating the wrongly listed names, the total number of persons present in that list will be

= 24 + 26 - 1

= 49

Now, as 13 persons have been wrongly listed, removing them will make the list with number of people = 49 - 13 = 36.

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 - Rank of Vijay is 15^{th} from the top and 18^{th} from the bottom of the list that shows the qualified candidates. Total 35 candidates have not qualified. Find the total number of applicants.

Options :

Total number of qualified candidates will be = (15 + 18) - 1 = 32

Adding the list of disqualified candidates to it = 32 + 35 = 67

So, total number of applicants is 67.
