DIRECTIONS for question 1 to 4:Refer to the graph and answer the given question:
1. What is the difference between the total number of scarves sold by store M in 2003 and 2004 together and total number of scarves sold by store N in 2005 and 2006 together?
1. 160
2.  100
3.  140
4.  150
5.  120
Answer: Option E.
Total Number of scarves sold store M in 2003 and 2004= 190+320= 510
Total Number of scarves sold store M in 2005 and 2006=260+370= 630
Difference between the total Number of scarves sold store M in 2003 & 2004 and Total Number of scarves sold store N in 2005 and 2006 is = 630 – 510 = 120.
2. Number of scarves sold by store M decreased by what percent from 2004 to 2005?
1. 40 5/8
2.  45 3/8
3. 42 3/8
4.  30 3/8
5.  35 5/8
Answer:  Option A
1.  430
2. 450
3.  420
4.  460
5. 440
Answer: Option E.
Ratio between total number scarves sold by stores M & N together in 2002 and that in 2009 is 15:11.
Total number scarves sold by stores M & N together in 2002 = 240+360 = 600
According to question, 600/X= 15/11
Or, x = 440
Total number scarves sold by stores M & N together in 2009 = 440.
• If the total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2008 is 10% more than that in 2006, what is the total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2008?
1. 638
2. 406
3. 414
4. 396
5.  408
Answer: Option A.
Total number of scarves sold by stores M & N in 2006 = 210+370 = 580
Total number of scarves sold by stores M & N in 2008 = 580×110/100 = 638
DIRECTIONS for question 5 to 7:Study the given information carefully to answer the given question.
R is 15m west of Q. J is 6m north of Q. W is 2m west of J. L is 10m south of W. K is 6m west of L.
• If F is 4m to the south of R and V is 2m east of K, how far is Point F from Point V?
1. 8m
2. 11m
3. 5m
4.  9m
5.  4m
Answer: Option D.
The following diagram can be formed with the given information.
Now, FL = RQ – WJ = 15 – 2 = 13m
Further, FV = FL – VL = 13 – 4 = 9m

• Kabir walks 10m towards south from Point J, takes a right turn and walks for 3m. How far will he be from Point K?
1.  4m
2. 10m
3.  9m
4.  6m
5. 5m
Answer: Option E.
As shown in the diagram, if Kabir walks 10 m towards south from point J, he will reach at point Y. Then, moving 3 m to the right side, he will finally reach point X.
Now, XL = XY – LY = 3 – 2 = 1 m
And distance between X and K = KL – XL = 6 – 1 = 5m
• In which direction is R with respect to J?
1. West
2.  South east
3. North east
4. North
5. South west
Answer: Option E.
As per the diagram, it can be observed that R is towards South-west with respect to J.
DIRECTIONS for question 8 to 10:What will come in place of question mark (?) in the given number series?
• 700  457  376  349  340  ?
1. 266
2. 329
3. 304
4. 337
5. 307
Answer: Option D
Given series is:
700                  457                          376                          349                     340                  ?
Pattern is 700 – 457 = 243, 457 – 376 = 81, 376 – 349 = 27, 349 – 340 = 9
Thus, the next term is 340 – 3 = 337
• 1  2  6  21  88  ?
1.  425
2.  475
3. 295
4.  445
5.  395
Answer: Option D.
Given series is:
1             2            6           21          88           ?
Pattern is 1×1+1= 2
2×2+2= 6
6×3+3=21
21×4+4= 88
88×5+5= 445
So the next term of the series is = 445
• 19  20  16  25  9  ?
1. 45
2. 55
3. 59
4.  34
5.  81
Answer: Option D
Given series is:
19         20          16         25          9            ?
Pattern is 19 – 20 =  -1
20 – 16 = 4
16 – 25 = -9
25 – 9 = 16
So, next term of the series is = 9 – (-25) = 34
