a) UOFEDRN
b) UOFERDN
c) UOEFDRN
d) UOFEDNR

Correct Choice : a
Solution

First three letters of the word are written in reverse order followed by the second last letter of the word. Fifth letter (from the left end) is not unchanged. Last letter becomes the second last letter and fourth letter becomes the last letter, so FOUNDER is written as UOFEDRN.

Hence, option a.

14.  If a mirror is placed on the line OR, then which of the answer figures is the right image of the given figure?    Hence, option d.

15. Select the option that is related fifth term in the same way as the second term is related to the first term and the fourth term is related to the third term:
9643 : 11 :: 3278 : 10 :: 8976 : ?

17
14
15
13

Correct Choice: c
Solution

Second term is half the sum of all the digits of first term. i.e. Second term = ½ × (9 + 6 + 4 + 3) = 1/2 × 22 = 11. Fourth term is twice the sum of all the digits of third term.
i.e. Fourth term = 1/2 × (3 + 2 + 7 + 8) = ½ × 20 = 10. Sixth term is twice the sum of all the digits of fifth term, so Sixth term = ½ × (8 + 9 + 7 + 6) = ½ × 30 = 15. Hence, option c.
