Reasoning Quiz For Upcoming 2016-17 Exams


1. If ‘+’means ‘minus’, ‘x’ means ‘divided by’, ‘÷’ means ‘plus’ and ‘-‘means ‘multiplied by’ then which of the following will be the value of the expression 252 x 9 – 5 + 32 ÷ 92 = ?
(a)  95                   
(b) 168                       
(c) 192             
(d) 200
putting the proper signs in the given expression,
We get: 252 ÷9 x 5 – 32 + 92 = 28 x 5 – 32 + 92 = 140 – 32 + 92= 232 – 32 = 200.
          
2. If ‘+’ means x, x means -,÷ means +,and –means ÷ , then which of the following gives the result of 175 – 25 ÷ 5+ 20 x 3 + 10 = ?
(a) 77                   
(b) 160                       
(c) 240           
(d) 2370
Using the proper signs in the given expression,
We get: 175 ÷ 25 + 5 x 20 – 3 x 10 = 7 + 5 x 20 – 3 x 10 = 7 + 100 – 30 = 107 – 30 = 77.

3. If L stands for +, M stands for  – , N stands for x, P stands for ÷, then 14 N 10 L 42 P 2 M 8 =?
(a) 153                 
(b) 216                       
(c) 248           
(d) 251
Using the proper signs,
We get: 14 x 10 + 42 ÷ 2 – 8 = 14 x 10 + 21 – 8 = 140 + 21 – 8 = 161 – 8 = 153.

4. If ‘+’ means ‘divided by’, ‘-‘ means ‘added to’, ‘x’ means’ subtracted from’ and ‘÷’ means ‘multiplied by’, then what is the value of 24 ÷  12 – 18 + 9 ?
(a) -25                 
(b) 0.72

5. If + means ÷,÷ means -, – means x , x means + , then 12 + 6 ÷ 3 – 2 x 8 = ?
(a) -2                   
(b) 2                           
(c) 4               
(d) 8
Using the correct symbols, we have:
Given expression: = 12 ÷ 6 – 3 x 2 + 8 = 2 -6 + 8 = 10 – 6 = 4.

6. If + means – , – means x, ÷ means + and x means ÷ , then 15 – 3 + 10 x 5 ÷ 5 = ?
(a) 5                     
(b) 22                         
(c) 48             
(d) 52
Using the correct symbols, we have:
Given expression = 15 x 3 – 10 ÷5 + 5 = 45 – 2 + 5 = 50 – 2 = 48.

7.If  x means ÷, – means x, ÷ means + and + means -, then  (3 – 15 ÷ 19) x 8 + 6 =?
(a) -1                   
(b) 2                           
(c) 4               
(d) 8
Using the correct symbols, we have:
Given expression = (3 x 15 + 19) ÷ 8 – 6 = 64 ÷8 – 6 = 2.

8. If + stands for x, – for ÷, x for – and ÷ for + , find the value of 26 + 24 – 4 x 5 ÷ 2.
(a) 220                 
(b) 376                       
(c)153             
(d) 155
Using the correct symbols, we have:
Given expression = 26 x 24 ÷ 4 – 5 + 2 = 26 x 6 – 5 + 2 = 156 – 5 + 2 = 151 + 2 = 153

9. If Q means ‘add to’, J means ‘multiply by’, T means’ subtract from’ and K means ‘divide by’ then 30 K 2 Q 3 J 6 T 5 =?
