a) 8

b) 12

c) 20

d) 34

So, the next number will be 92=81-1=80.

Hence, the answer is 80.

4. A person is sixth in the queue from starting. If he shifts 2 positions forward, now he is sixth from the end. How many people are there in the queue?

Hence, the answer is 27840.

8. Complete the following series 4, 20, 29, 45, 70…?

a) 114

b) 94

c) 106

Hence, the answer is 5040.

10. In a row of 28 boys, when Samyak shifted five places towards the left, he become 11^{th} from the left end. What was his earlier position form the right end of the row?

a) 10^{th}

b) 11^{th}

c) 12^{th}

d) 13^{th}

View Answer

Explanation: Here, there are 28 boys and Samyak is in 11

^{th}position from left end after shifting. i.e. Sourav is in 16

^{th}position from left before shifting. So 28 – 16 = 12 i.e. there are 12 boys before Samyak, so his position was 13

^{th}from the right end.

Hence, the answer is 13

^{th}.
