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 - Calculate the total number of boys needed to make it 50, if rank of a boy in that group is 7^{th} from the top and 28^{th} from the bottom.

Options :

Total number of boys now = (7 + 28) - 1 = 34

Extra boys needed = 50 - 34 = 16

Q 3 - The rank of Biswa in a group of students is 12^{th} from top and 16^{th} from below. What would be his rank from below, if he will be placed in 21^{st} place from the top?

Options :

In the first case the total number of students will be

= 12 + 16 - 1 = 27

Among 27 numbers of students, if Biswa will be placed in 21^{st} position from top, his rank from below will be

27 - 21 + 1

= 7

Q 4 - In a cinema hall, 35 viewers were sitting in a row. From the right hand side, the position of Kamal was 7^{th} whereas position of Sunil from the left hand side was 9^{th}. Manoj was sitting exactly in between Kamal and Sunil. Find the position of Kamal from Sunil.

Options :

Number of viewers sitting in between Kamal and Sunil can be calculated as

35 - (9 + 7) = 19

So we can say now that 9 viewers were present in between Kamal - Manoj and Manoj - Sunil. So the position of Kamal is 10^{th} from Sunil.

Q 5 - Among the list of 64 shortlisted applicants, rank of Suresh is 54 from top and rank of Radhika is 34 from bottom. How many candidates are present in between Suresh and Radhika?

Options :

Rank of Radhika from top = (64 - 34) + 1 = 31

Now number of candidates lying in between Radhika and Suresh are

= (54 - 31) - 1

= 22

Q 6 - In a queue, the rank of Sojoy from front is 10^{th} while from behind the rank of Deepak is 25^{th}. 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 :

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 8^{th} position and from front end his rank will be 18^{th}.

Q 7 - In a row of boys, the rank of Mannu is 6^{th} from the top and 12^{th} from the bottom. Similarly, in another row of boys, rank of Raju is 5^{th} from the top and 15^{th} from the bottom. Calculate the total number of boys present in the two rows.

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 - In a queue, the position of a person is 7^{th} from the left side and 6^{th} from the right hand side. How many persons must be removed to make it a group of 6?

Options :

Total number of persons from both the side is = 7 + 6 - 1 = 12

Now to make it a group of 6, we need to remove 6 persons.

Q 9 - Rank of Gopi is 13^{th} from the top in a group of 35 students. Find his rank from below if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.

Options :

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

= (35 - 13) + 1

= 23

Now as, 3 students will be added to the bottom of the list, the new rank of Gopi from bottom will be = 23 + 3 = 26

Q 10 - From top, rank of Tanmay was mistakenly written as 12^{th} out of 38 students but management found out that his actual rank is 14^{th} from bottom. What will be his new rank from top?

Options :

As the new rank from below is 13^{th}, then from top it will be

= (38 - 14) + 1

= 25
