Look at this series: 58, 52, 46, 40, 34, . . .

What number should come next?

What number should come next?

This is a simple subtraction series.

Each number is 6 less than the previous number.

(58 - 6 = 52), (52 - 6 = 46), (46 - 6 = 40), (40 - 6 = 34),(34 - 6 = 28)

So the answer is B = 28..

The average of 6 quantities is 4. The average of 3 them is 3. What is the average of the remaining three numbers?

The average of 6 quantities is 4.

Therefore ,the sum of the 6 quantities is 6 Ãƒâ€” 4 = 24.

The average of three of these 3 quantities is 3.

Therefore, the sum of these three quantities = 3 Ãƒâ€” 3 = 9

The sum of the remaining three quantities = 24 - 9 = 15 .

Average of these three quantities = 15 / 3 = 5.

When a number is divided by 13, the remainder is 11. When the same number is divided by 17, then remainder is 9. What is the number ?

x = 13p + 11 and x = 17q + 9

13p + 11 = 17q + 9

17q - 13p = 2

q =(2 + 13p) /17

The least value of p for which q =(2 + 13p) /17is a whole number is p = 26

x = (13 x 26 + 11)

= (338 + 11)

= 349

In following questions, a sequence of groups of alphabets and numbers is provided with one term missing , Choose the missing term from options. J2Z, K4X, 17V, ?, H16R, M22P

The first letters in odd numbered terms from series J, I, H and in even numbered terms from the series K, L, M. The sequence followed by the numbers is + 2, + 3, + 4, + 5, + 6. The third letter of each term is moved two steps backward to obtain the third letter of the next term.

F, the accountant is the son of B and brother of E. C, the lawyer is the daughter in law of A. E is the unmarried engineer. A Is the grandmother of F. What is the profession of A.

C is the daughter in law of A who is the grandmother of F means C is the mother of F. But F is the son of B. So, B is C's husband. But C, the lawyer, is married to the doctor. So, B is the doctor. F, the accountant, will be the son of B and C. E is the unmarried engineer. So, the other married couple can be that of grandmother of F i.e, A and D. But D, the salesman, is married to the lady teacher. So, D, the salesman, is the grandfather of F, father of B and the husband of A, the lady teacher. A is the lady teacher..
