2. (2) 65 âˆš2 m
3. (3) 70 m
4. (4) 140 m
5. (5) None of these

### Explanations

1. 3 In given period, there are 9 leap years and 28 nonleap years, so required number of odd days:
Hence, Hargovind’s 37th birthday was a Wednesday.

2. 5 As distances between the persons are not known, we can’t determine the answer.

3. 3
F(6) – 4 = B(2)
R(18) – 3 = O(15)
A(1) – 2 = Y(25)
C(3) – 1 = B(2)
T(20) + 1 = U(21)
I(9) + 2 = K(11)
O(15) + 3 = R(18)
N(14) + 4 = R(18)

Similarly,
G(7) – 4 = C(3)
E(5) – 3 = B(2)
O(15) – 2 = M(13)
M(13) – 1 = L(12)
E(5) + 1 = F(6)
T(20) + 2 = V(22)
R(18) + 3 = U(21)
Y(25) + 4 = C(3)

Hence, GEOMETRY will be coded as CBMLFVUC.

4. 2 After replacing the letters of the word ‘MIXTURE’ , we get ‘LJWSVQF’ and ‘FJLQSVW’ (by arranging the letters in alphabetical order). Hence, ‘L’ is the 5th letter from the right.

5. 3

318 – 6 Ã· 59 Ã— 47 + 3
= 318 Ã· 6 + 59 – 47 Ã— 3
(After interchanging the mathematical symbols)
= 53 + 59 – 47 Ã— 3
= 53 + 59 – 141
= 112 – 141 = – 29

6. 1

22 – 4 + 7 Ã— 76 Ã· 44
= 22 Ã· 4 Ã— 7 – 76 + 44
(After interchanging the mathematical symbols)
= 5.5 Ã— 7 – 76 + 44
= 38.5 – 76 + 44
= 82.5 – 76
= 6.5

7. 2

G(7) + 1 = H(8)
K(11) + 1 = L(12)
O(15) – 1 = N(14)
E(5) – 1 = D(4)
L (12) + 1 = M(13)
Y(25) + 1 = Z(26)
D(4) – 1 = C(3)
S(19) – 1 = R(18)
B(2) + 1 = C(3)
T(20) + 1 = U(21)
R(18) + 1 = S(19)
R(18) + 1 = S(19)
I(9) – 1 = H(8)
O(15) – 1 = N(14)
C(3) + 1 = D(4)
K(11) + 1 = L(12)
K(11) – 1 = J(10)
E(5) – 1 = D(4)
S(19) + 1 = T(20)
S(19) + 1 = T(20)

Here, the letters are increased and decreased in position number by one in alternate steps. Also, the first five and last five coded letters are reversed to find the code. Hence, code for ‘KEYSTROKES’ is ‘URZDLTDLNS’.

8. 3 TARE, RATE, TEAR

9. 4

He is heading in North-east direction with respect to his starting point.

10. 1

Minimum distance between the starting point and end point
