{ (B) Given pattern - A number is obtained by summation of previous
two numbers. 13 = 8 + 5, X = 8 + 13 = 21, 21 + 34 = 55 and so on.}
27. The letters in the first set have certain relationship. On the basis of

29. In an examination 25% of the candidates failed in Mathematics

candidates appeared in the examination was
(A) 300 (B) 400 (C) 460 (D) 500 (Ans:-B)
{Fail% in maths=25%,fail % in english=12%
total fail%=(25%+12%)-10%=27%
total pass%=100%-27%=73%,let x be the total candidates
therefore total pass% of x=292
total pass%=73%,ie 73%×x=292, 73/100×x=292ie x=292×100/73
x=29200/73 , ie x=400}
30). If 5472 = 9, 6342 = 6 and 7584 = 6, what is 9236 ?
(A) 2 (B) 3 (C) 4 (D) 5 (Ans:-B)
{Here, every number is the sum of its digits (adding digits till we get
a number between 0–9)
5472 = 5+4+7+2 = 18 = 1+8 = 9
6342 = 6+3+4+2 = 15 = 1+5 = 6
7584 = 7+5+8+4 = 24 = 2+4 = 6
So, 9237 = 9+2+3+7 = 21 = 2+1 = 3
Hence, 9237 = 3}
