Question 13 In the following question, two statements are given each followed by two conclusions I and II. You have to consider the statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from commonly known facts. You have to decide which of the given conclusions, if any, follows from the given statements.

Statements:

Question 14 If the age of Rahul is 5 years more than his friend Ajay's age and the age of Rahul's wife is 6 years less than Rahul, and Ajay's wife is 1 year older than Rahul's wife, then which of the following statements is true?

(a) Rahul's age and Ajay's wife's age is same.

(b) Ajay's wife's age and Ajay's age is same.

(c) Rahul and Ajay are of the same age.

(d) Rahul and Ajay's age difference is 3 years.

Ans.:-b.

Explanation:-  Rahul = Ajay +5; -----(i)

Rahul’s wife = Rahul -6; ---------(ii)

Ajay’s wife = Rahul’s wife +1; --------(iii)

From eq.(i) and eq.(ii),

Rahul’s wife = Ajay -1;

Put this value in eq.(iii),

Ajay’s wife = Ajay;

Question 21 A word is represented by only one set of numbers as given in any one of the alternatives. The sets of numbers given in the alternatives are represented by two classes of alphabets as shown in the given two matrices. The columns and rows of Matrix-I are numbered from 0 to 4 and that of Matrix-II are numbered from 5 to 9. A letter from these matrices can be represented first by its row and next by its column, for example, ‘K’ can be represented by 22, 04, etc., and 'P’ can be represented by 77, 98, etc. Similarly, you have to identify the set for the word 'STRAIN’.
