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.

= 30

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