(A) 5, 1, 4, 2, 3
(B) 5, 1, 2, 3, 4
(C) 1, 4, 5, 2, 3
(D) 1, 5, 4, 3, 2

Solutions:

Ans.1(B)  Mr. Alex types X words in 1 minute.

Therefore, Mr. Alex will type 1 word in  1/X  minute.

And Mr. Alex will type Y words in 1/X×Y minutes.

Hence B is the correct option.

Ans.4(D)     We will solve it stepwise
(i) + is replaced by x⇒15 × 5 ÷ 3 x 1 -1 = ?
(ii) – is replaced by + ⇒15 × 5 ÷ 3 x 1+1 = ?
(iii) x is replaced by ÷ ⇒15 ÷ 5 ÷ 3 x 1+1 = ?
(iv)÷is replaced by – ⇒15 ÷ 5 – 3 x 1+1 = ?
Now Solve Final Equation
⇒15 ÷ 5 – 3 x 1+1 = ?
⇒ 3 – 3 + 1 = 1
Hence, option (D) is correct.

Ans.5(B)   Here, we add the cubes of both numbers present at left side to get the desired result.

Case 1: (4)3 + (3)3 = 91

Case 2: (2)3 + (5)3 = 133

Similarly,

Case 3: (7)3 + (1)3 = 344

Hence, option (B) is the correct answer.

Ans.6(A)    Here, second is the name given to the foot of the first.
The hoof of the horse is analogous to foot of the man.
Hence, A is the required answer.

Ans.7(B)   Here GALAXY: EYJYVW may be written as,

Hence, option B is the correct response.

Ans.8(D) In all other groups, the last letter is in capital form. Hence, option D is different from others.

Ans.9(B) Each of the numbers except 87, the difference between first digit and second digit of numbers is 7.
Option (A): 60 ⇒ 6 – 0 = 6
Option (B): 97 ⇒ 9 – 7 = 2
Option (C): 71⇒ 7 – 1 = 6
Option (D): 82 ⇒8 – 2 = 6
Hence, it is clear from above that option (B) is odd one out.

Ans.10(A) Order as per dictionary:
5. PHONE
1. PHYSICAL
4. PHYSICIAN
2. PHYSICS
3. PHYSIOLOGY
Hence, answer is 5, 1, 4, 2, 3.
