Question 1 of 5
1. Question
If 2, a, b, c, d, e, f and 65 forms an Arithmetic Progression, find out the value of ‘e’.
Correct
Solution (b)
Given that 2, a, b, c, d, e, f and 65 are in an AP.
We know that in AP nth term is given by an = a1 + (n1) d
There are 8 terms in the series hence n = 8
65 = 2 + (81) d, d = 9.
In the series, e is the sixth term
Therefore, e = 2 + (61)*9 = 2+45 = 47.

Question 2 of 5
2. Question
The number of ways in which a mixed double tennis game can be arranged amongst 9 married couples if no husband and wife play in the same game is:
Correct
Solution (a)
There are 9 married couples. Therefore, there will be 9 men and 9 women.
First, let us select the 2 men.
2 men can be selected in 9C2 = 36 ways.
Now, the wives of these 2 men cannot be selected. Therefore, we have to select 2 women from the remaining 7 women.
2 women can be selected in 7C2 = 21 ways.
We have selected 2 men and 2 women. A team should consist of one man and one woman. Therefore, the 2 teams can be formed in 2 ways.
Therefore, the total number of ways in which the team can be selected is 36*21*2 = 1512.

Question 3 of 5
3. Question
ABCDE play a game of cards. A tells B that if B gives him five cards, A will have as many cards as E has. However if A gives five cards to B then B will have as many cards as D. A and B together has 20 cards more than the cards held by D and E together. B has four cards more than C and total number of cards is 201. How many cards does B have?
Correct
Solution (d)
Let ‘a’ be the number of cards with B. If A gives five cards to B then B will have as many cards as D.
Hence, the number of cards with D = ‘a+5’.
B has four cards more than what C has. Hence, the number of cards with C = ‘a4’.
Let us assume that the number of cards with A = ‘x’. It is given that if B gives A five cards the A will have as many cards as E has. Hence, the number of cards with E = x+5.
It is also given that A and B together have 20 cards more than the cards held by D and E together. Hence, (a+x) – (a+5+x+5) = 20.
Data given in the question is insufficient to answer this question. Therefore, option d is the correct answer.
Incorrect
Solution (d)
Let ‘a’ be the number of cards with B. If A gives five cards to B then B will have as many cards as D.
Hence, the number of cards with D = ‘a+5’.
B has four cards more than what C has. Hence, the number of cards with C = ‘a4’.
Let us assume that the number of cards with A = ‘x’. It is given that if B gives A five cards the A will have as many cards as E has. Hence, the number of cards with E = x+5.
It is also given that A and B together have 20 cards more than the cards held by D and E together. Hence, (a+x) – (a+5+x+5) = 20.
Data given in the question is insufficient to answer this question. Therefore, option d is the correct answer.

Question 4 of 5
4. Question
The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, and 4) given in this question, when properly sequenced, forms a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper order for the sentences and key in this sequence of four numbers as your answer.
Consider the following:
 Selfmanagement is thus defined as the individual’s ability to manage the symptoms, treatment, physical and psychosocial consequences and lifestyle changes inherent in living with a chronic condition.
 Most people with progressive diseases like dementia prefer to have control over their own lives and healthcare for as long as possible.
 Having control means, among other things, that patients themselves perform selfmanagement activities.
 Supporting people in decisions and actions that promote selfmanagement is called selfmanagement support requiring a cooperative relationship between the patient, the family, and the professionals.
Choose the correct code
Correct
Solution (a)
1 states that ‘selfmanagement is ‘thus’ defined as the individual’s ability to manage…’ Therefore, some details about selfmanagement should have been provided before sentence 1.
Sentence 2 states that people with dementia prefer to have ‘control’ in their lives. Sentence 3 states what ‘having control means’. Therefore, sentences 2 and 3 form a mandatory pair.
Sentence 1 should follow sentence 3 since sentence 3 states that ‘having control means to perform selfmanagement activities’ and sentence 1 defined selfmanagement activities. Sentence 4 should be the last since it states what selfmanagement support is. Selfmanagement support can be defined only after defining what selfmanagement is.
Sentences 2314 form a coherent paragraph. Therefore, option a is the correct answer.

Question 5 of 5
5. Question
The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, and 4) given in this question, when properly sequenced, forms a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper order for the sentences and key in this sequence of four numbers as your answer.
Consider the following:
 It was his taxpayers who had to shell out as much as $1.6bn over 10 years to employees of failed companies.
 Companies in many countries routinely engage in such activities which means that the employees are left with unpaid entitlements.
 Deliberate and systematic liquidation of a company to avoid liabilities and then restarting the business is called phoenixing.
 The Australian Minister for Revenue and Services discovered in an audit that phoenixing had cost the Australian economy between 2.9bn and 5.1bn last year.
Choose the correct code
Correct
Solution (c)
3 should be the opening sentence since it introduces the concept of phoenixing. Sentence 2 logically continues sentence 1 by stating that companies in many countries engage in such activities (Phoenixing). Sentence 2 should be followed by sentence 4 since it moves to a specific instance (Australian minister’s discovery) from general statements. Sentence 1 should follow sentence 4 since it states that it was his taxpayers (Australian Minister’s taxpayers or Australian citizens) who had to foot the bill. Sentences 3241 form a coherent paragraph. Therefore, option c is the correct answer.
