There are four such pairs.
4.2;
The given number 7 5 2 4 6 9 3
2 3 4 5 6 7 9
5.4; The color of blood is red. In code lan-
guage pink means red.
6.3; and $
7.2; A
8.1; In all others the second element pre-
cedes the first and the third element fol-
lows the first.
9.1; 6
th
to the right of 15
th
from the right
= ( 15 < 6 ) 9
th
from the right = Q.
10.4; Move four elements forward to get the
corresponding element of the second
group.
11.5; Dropping all the numbers, we get the fol-
lowing arrangement :
# B G @ I L H A % D F K E
J Q V T U $ W
Now, 5
th
to the left of 11
th
from the left =
( 11 < 5 ) 6
th
from the left = L.
12.4; Move five elements forward to obtain
the corresponding element of every suc-
cessive group.
13.1; H ) T..... (i), T < L .... (ii), L = F .... (iii),
combining these, we get H ) T < L = F
Hence F > H and I follows.
But H < L and hence II (H ) L) does
not follow.
14.3; V > I ... (i), I * M... (ii), M ) Q ... (iii), from
(ii) and (iii), I and Q can't be compared .
But I and II make a complementary
pair. Hence either I (I ) Q) or II (I * Q)
follows.
15.2; P < W... (i), W * D... (ii), D > J....(iii)
From (ii) and (iii), W * D > J or J < W... (iv).
Hence II follows. However, from (i) and
(iv) we can conclude that J and P can't be
compared. Hence I does not follow.
16.4; E < U... (i), U = R... (ii); R > F... (iii)
From (i) and (ii), E < R... (iv). Now, from
(iii) and (iv), E and F can't be compared.
Hence neither I nor II follows.
17.4; T ) J... (i); J * I... (ii); I < W... (iii).
From (ii) and (iii), J and W can't be com-
pared.
Hence I does not follow.
From (i) and (ii), T and I can't be com-
pared.
Hence II does not follow.
18.1; K * D... (i); D > L... (ii); L < J... (iii).
From (i) and (ii), K * D > L or K > L... (iv)
Hence I follows.
However from (iii) and (iv), J and K can't
be compared. Hence, II does not follow.
19.5; Adding 1 to the middle digits, we get
396 762 971 583 849
Interchanging first and second digits, we get
936 672 791 853 489
Now, 489 is the smallest number and 9 its
third digit.
Quicker method: The number with the
smallest second digit will become the
smallest number. Among the given num-
bers, this 839 and 9 its third digit.
20.1; Look for the second largest third digit.
21.3; The largest number will be the one with
the largest first digit. Hence 961, which
will become 916 after the said inter-
change.
Now, 9 + 6 = 15.

Reasoning tests are designed to measure your ability to draw
logical conclusions based on the given information, and to
identify the strengths and weaknesses of those arguments.
Reasoning questions are normally considered to be very con-
fusing as the candidate can not easily decide on an answer
without taking some time and applying good analytical skills.
