Explanation:

The coding language used to code the given sentences should be decoded in three steps.

Step I: The first element of the code is the difference in the alphabetic positions of first and the last alphabets of the word.

Step II: The second element of the code is the symbol on the basis of the number of pairs of same letters in the words.

For 1 pair = #

For 2 pairs = ##

For 3 pairs = ###

Step III: The third element of the code is the middle alphabet/alphabets of the word.

For example,

APPRECIATE is coded as ‘4###EC’

Difference of A and E = 5 – 1= 4

Three pairs (AA, EE, PP) = ###

EC are the middle alphabets.

(Direction 1 – 5): In each of the following questions two rows of numbers are given. The resultant number in each row is to be worked out separately based on the following rules and the question below the rows of numbers are to be answered. The operations of numbers progress from left to right.
Rules:
i) If the odd number is following by a two digit even number then they are added to each other.
ii) If the odd number is following by a two digit odd number then the second number is to be subtracted from the first number.
iii) If the even number is following by a number which is a perfect square of a number then the second number is to be divided by the first number.
iv) If the even number is following by a two digit even number then the first number is to be multiplied by the second number.

1.What will be the answer if the resultant of the second row is subtracted from the resultant of the first row?
A. 144
B. 92
C. 129
D. 112
E. None of these

Correct option is: D

Explanation:

1. i) In first row 55 is an odd number and 45 is a two digit odd no. so apply condition 2→ 55 – 45 = 10Now 10 is an even no. and next 12 is a two digit even no. so apply condition 4→ 10 × 12 = 120 and 120 is the resultant of 1st row.ii) In 2nd row 25 is an odd no. and 10 is a two digit even no. so condition 1 is applied→ 25 + 10 = 35Now 25 is an odd no. and next 33 is a two digit odd no. so apply condition 2→ 35 – 33 = 2Now 2 is an even number and next 16 is a perfect square so apply condition 3

→ 16 ÷ 2 = 8 and 8 is the resultant of the second row

Now subtract resultant of 2nd from resultant of 1st row = 120 – 8 = 112.

2.What is the answer if the resultant of the first row is multiplied by the resultant of the second row?
A. 19
B. 30
C. 16
D. 20
E. None of these

Correct option is: B

Explanation:

• i) In first row 39 is an odd number and 35 is a two digit odd no. so apply condition 2→ 39 – 35 = 4Now 4 is an even no. and next 10 is a two digit even number so apply condition 4→ 4 × 10 = 40Now 40 is an even number and next 400 is a perfect square so apply condition 3→ 400 ÷ 40 = 10 and 10 is the resultant of 1st row.ii) In 2nd row 4 is an even no. and 12 is a two digit even no. so condition 4 is applied→ 4 × 12 = 48Now 48 is an even no. and next 144 is a perfect square so apply condition 3

→ 144 ÷ 48 = 3 and 3 is the resultant of the second row

Now multiply resultant of 1st and resultant of 2nd row = 10 × 3= 30.

• What is the sum of the resultant of first row and second row?

A. 22
B. 20
C. 18
D. 42
E. None of these

Correct option is: B

Explanation:

• i) In first row 30 is an even number and 60 is a two digit even no. so apply condition 4→ 30 × 60 = 1800Now 1800 is an even no. and next 3600 is a perfect square so apply condition 3→ 3600 ÷ 1800 = 2 and 2 is the resultant of 1st row.ii) In 2nd row 15 is an odd no. and 22 is a two digit even no. so condition 1 is applied→ 15 + 22 = 37Now 37 is an odd no. and next 19 is a two digit odd no. so apply condition 2→ 37 – 19 = 18 and 18 is the resultant of the second rowNow sum of resultant of 1st and 2nd row = 2 + 18 = 20.

4.What is the difference between the resultant of the first row of numbers and the second row of numbers?
A. 20
B. 210
C. 69
D. 54
E. None of these

Correct option is: C

Explanation:

• i) In first row 6 is an even number and 36 is a perfect square so apply condition 3→ 36 ÷ 6 = 6Now 6 is an even no. and next 36 is a perfect square so apply condition 3→ 36 ÷ 6 = 6Now 6 is an even no. and next 12 is a two digit even number so apply condition 4→ 6 × 12 = 72 and 72 is the resultant of 1st row.ii) In 2nd row 15 is an odd no. and 11 is a two digit odd no. so condition 2 is applied→ 17 – 13 = 4Now 4 is an even number and next 12 is a two digit even no. so apply condition 4

→ 4 × 12 = 48

Now 48 is an even number and 144 is a perfect square so apply condition 3

→ 144 ÷ 48 = 3 and 3 is the resultant of the second row

Now difference of resultant of 1st and 2nd row = 72 – 3 = 69.

5.What is the answer if the resultant of the first row is multiplied by the resultant row?
A. 248
B. 364
C. 192
D. 148
E. None of these

Correct option is: C

Explanation:

1. i) In first row 21 is an odd no. and 19 is a two digit odd no. so apply condition 2→ 21 – 19 = 2Now 2 is an even no. and next 16 is a perfect square so apply condition 3→ 16 ÷ 2 = 8 and 8 is the resultant of 1st row.ii) In 2nd row 25 is an odd no. and 23 is a two digit odd no. so condition 2 is applied→ 25 – 23 = 2Now 2 is an even no. and next 12 is a two digit even no. so apply condition 4→ 2 × 12 = 24 and 24 is the resultant of the second row.Now product of resultant of 1st and 2nd row = 8 × 24 = 192.

Directions (1-10): Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Paragraph 1: Seen in terms of historical time, and of the lived experience of communities, as well as the upholding of liberal and secular values of our Constitution, the Ayodhya judgment of November 9 appears to suffer from serious limitations. The one positive outcome of the judgment of course is that while it can never snuff out debate and discussion around itself, it does have the effect of ruling out agitations and violence that came to be associated with this religion-based tangle in the past, most notably on December 6, 1992, if we are to take a strictly legal and constitutional view. It is necessary to underscore this as such a view was clearly not taken in 1992. Indeed, in the forefront of the action in Ayodhya that year, rightly deemed criminal by the Supreme Court, were some of the senior most and respected members of the political class, one of whom later became

Paragraph 2: Union home minister and deputy PM, besides UP state, whose Chief Minister had given the court a written undertaking that he would not permit the status quo at the site to be altered. If we assume such an upheaval won’t occur as a result of the November 9 judgment, then the parties whose position was not upheld by the Supreme Court can at best decide to go for a review or move a curative petition, which — given the circumstances of the case — isn’t likely to be successful. Nevertheless, for the sake of the record, some may deem this option a necessity. The most unfortunate aspect of the judgment is that it tallies one hundred and ten per cent with the views and ambitions of the anti-Babri Masjid and “temple reconstruction at that exact spot” campaign undertaken by the RSS-BJP and their cohorts and which excited mob violence to gain their purpose. This lot are now pleased and preach gracious acceptance of the judgment.

Paragraph 3: The judges were adjudicating the title dispute based on laws that were brought into being centuries after the religious structure/ shrine in question became the subject of controversy. Instead of being humble about this, and conceding that the evidentiary value of the material on record was sketchy at best, the Constitution Bench led by Chief Justice of India RanjanGogoi drew firm conclusions from these days before the CJI’s retirement. Worse, the bench incorporated in its judgment a 116-page addendum which, quite irrelevantly, dilates on the question of the faith and belief of Hindus about Ayodhya being the birthplace of Lord Ram. This does raise suspicions on a commonsense basis. There are other unanswered questions when the judgment seeks to establish that the exact spot of Lord Ram’s birth lay under the domes of the demolished Babri Masjid. Interestingly, the ValmikiRamayan does not lay down an exact spot. Even the shaky ASI findings do not suggest that a temple was demolished by those who built the mosque that was in Babur’s name.
