The rank of Kashyap can be calculated as = (49 - 9) + 1 = 41

Q 2 - While counting, Ajay found that his rank from the left hand side and right hand side are 4^{th} and 12^{th} respectively. Calculate the minimum number of boys that should be added to the line to make it 28.

Options :

Let’s 1^{st} calculate the total number of boys.

It will be = (4 + 12) - 1 = 15

Now extra boys needed = 28 - 15 = 13

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 - Ram’s rank is 15^{th} from the top and 12^{th} from the bottom in a group of boys. Similarly, in a group of girls, the rank of Daisy is 17^{th} from top and 18^{th} from bottom. What is number of boys and girls respectively?

Options :

From both side of rank of Ram, the total number of boys

= 15 + 12 - 1

= 26

From both side of rank of Daisy, the total number of girls will be

18 + 17 - 1

= 34

Q 5 - 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 numbers of 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.

Q 6 - In a dance competition, many dancers are standing in a single line. From both the sides, the rank of a dancer is found to be 29. How many dancers are there in the line?

Options :

Total number of boys present in Mannu’s row = (12 + 6) - 1 = 17

Total number of boys present in Raju’s row = (15 + 5) - 1 = 19

Total boys in 2 rows = 17 + 19 = 36

Q 8 - Out of 50 students, rank of Sanjay is 23^{rd} from top. What will be his rank from below?

= 8 + 12 + 5

= 25
