# ENHANCE REASONING SKILLS REASONING

For long, Reasoning is considered as the most puzzling section of the majority of the competitive exams. Thus candidates need to master this area through regular practice. Here are some questions for sharpening your reasoning ability...
1.Which of the following interchange of signs would make the equation correct ?
8×6+2 = 22
(a) +,×, 2 and 6 (b) +,×, 2 and 8
(c) +,×, 6 and 8(d) +,×, 2 and 22
Answer : (c) +,×, 6 and 8
8×6+2 = 22
6+8×2 = 22
6+16 = 22
22= 22
2. If ′–′ stands for addition, ′+′ stands for Subtraction, ′÷′ stands for multiplication and ′×′ stands for division, than which one of the following equation is correct?
(a) 50×5÷2–30+25= 25
(b) 50–30+5÷2×30= 25
(c) 40+35×2–50÷30 = 95
(d) 30×2–25+50÷5= 100
50×5÷2–30+25= 25
50÷5×2+30–25= 25
10×2+30–25= 25
20+30–25= 25
25= 25
3. If ′MONKO′ is coded as 57637, than How ′KLJMN′ be coded in he same code?
(a) 32456(b) 34256
(c) 35156(d) 32546
5763
Therefore, KLJMN 3425
4. If a number is greater than 5 but less than 9 and greater than 7 but less than 11, the number is

The number is greater than 5 but less than 9 ie. 6, 7, 8
The number is greater than 7 but less than 11 ie. 8, 9, 10
The common number is = 8

6. 6503 : 6003,7615 : 7115,8886 : ?
(a) 8136(b) 8536
(c) 8386(d) 8268
As,6503 – 500= 6003
7615 – 500= 7115
Similarly, 8886 – 500= 8386
