**SSC2MT1 – **In the following question, select the related word from the given alternatives.

Lion : Roar :: Owl : ?

- Gibber
- Chirp
**Hoot**- Quack

**Solution: **Roar is the Sound produced by the lion. Similarly, Hoot is the sound Produced by the Owl.

**SSC2MT2-**In the following question, select the related number from the given alternatives.

8743 : 44 : : 6545 : ?

**40**- 45
- 37
- 42

**Solution :**

In a pair second number is twice of the sum of digits of first number.

⇒ In 8743 : 44

⇒ (8 + 7 + 4 + 3) = 22 x 2 = 44

In the similar way

⇒ (6 + 5 + 4 + 5) = 20 x 2 = 40

**SSC2MT3- **In the following question, select the related letters from the given alternatives.

LAPTOP: OXSQRM:: SPIDER:?

- VMLAHP
- MVLAHO
**VMLAHO**- VMLBHO

**Solution :**

Let us first write down the alphabets and their corresponding positions in the English alphabetic series.

In the first pair: LAPTOP: OXSQRM

Alphabets at the odd position are increased by 3 and at even position are decreased by 3.

In a similar way, we can get the code for SPIDER

So, the code for the SPIDER is VMLAHO.

**SSC2MT4** – In the following question, select the odd word from the given alternatives.

- Constellation
- Galaxy
**Star**- Cluster

**Solution : **Constellation is a group of stars forming a recognizable pattern that is traditionally named after its apparent form or identified with a mythological figure.

Galaxy is a system of millions or billions of stars, together with gas and dust, held together by gravitational attraction.

A cluster is a group of similar things or people positioned or occurring closely together.

**SSC2MT5 – **In the following question, select the odd letters from the given alternatives.

- MNOP
**EFGI**- RSTU
- ZABC

**Solution :**

1. M+1 => N, N+1 =>O, O+1=>P

2. E+ 1 => F, F+1 =>G, G+2 =>I

3. R+1 => S, S+1 =>T, T+1 =>U

4. Z+1 => A, A+1 =>B, B+1 =>C

Clearly, the answer is EFGI. All other groups consist of four consecutive letters while this one doesn’t.

**SSC2MT6 – **

- Lion – Den

**SSC2MT7 – **

Arrange the given words in the sequence in which they occur in the dictionary.

1. Dramp

2. Drabbet

3. Dragbar

4. Draug

5. Drail

- 1, 3, 4, 5, 2
- 1, 3, 2, 4, 5
**2, 3, 5, 1, 4**- 4, 3, 1, 2, 5

**Solution :**

Here, the correct order is as follows:

2. Drabbet

3. Dragbar

5. Drail

1. Dramp

4. Draug

**SSC2MT8 – **

A series is given with one term missing. Select the correct alternative from the given ones that will complete the series.

PUR, SXU, VAX, YDA, BGD,?

- FGH
**EJG**- EGJ
- GHF

**Solution :**

Let us first write down the alphabets and their corresponding positions in the English alphabetic series.

Here the original series is PUR, SXU, VAX, YDA, BGD, ?

It can be represented as

P → U → R

+5 -3

Next Alphabet after R⇒S

S → X → U

+5 -3

Next Alphabet after U⇒V

V → A → X

+5 -3

Next Alphabet after X⇒Y

Y → D → A

+5 -3

Next Alphabet after A⇒B

B → G → D

+5 -3

Next Alphabet after D⇒E

in a similar way, next Alphabet after D⇒E

E → J → G

+5 -3

**Thus, EJG is required answer.**

**SSC2MT9**

A series is given with one term missing. Select the correct alternative from the given ones that will complete the series.

123456789, 23456789, 2345678, 345678, ?

- 45678
**34567**- 34678
- 45679

**Solution :**

The original series is 123456789, 23456789, 2345678, 345678,?

In the above series, the digits are removed one by one from the beginning and the end in order alternately so as to obtain the subsequent terms of the series.

Following the above logic, 34567 is the missing term.

**SSC2MT10**

- Father
- Brother
- Husband
**Father- in -law**

**Solution :**

Woman’s daughter-in-law’s father-in-law implies woman’s husband. Again, the father of woman’s husband implies woman’s father-in-law. Hence, the man is woman’s father-in-law.

**SSC2MT11**

From the given alternative words, select the word which cannot be formed using the letters of the given word.

AFFORESTATION

- FOREST
- TASTE
- ATTIRE
**EASTER**

**Solution :**

There is only 1 ‘E’ in the given word. Therefore, the word EASTER cannot be formed.

Hence option D is the right answer.

**SSC2MT12**

**8**- 6
- 7
- 5

**Solution :**

Here, we fist divide the larger number by smaller number then add the digits of the result obtained.

In case of 144 * 2 = 9,

⇒= 72

Adding the digits of quotient we get,

⇒ 7 + 2 = 9

In case of 312 * 3 = 5,

⇒= 104

Adding the digits of quotient we get,

⇒ 1 + 0 + 4 = 5

Similarly for 625 * 5 we get,

⇒= 125

Adding the digits of quotient we get,

⇒ 1 + 2 + 5 = 8

Hence, option A is the required answer.

**SSC2MT13**

- -17
**-2**- -19
- -14

**Solution :**

Original expression:-

8 + 2 ÷ 3 – 4 x 6 = ?

When symbols are replaced as per the table is given below.

New expression,

8 ÷ 2 – 3 x 4 + 6 = ?

Applying BODMAS rule we get,

4 – 3 x 4 + 6

4 – 12 + 6

10-12

=-2

**SSC2MT14**

- 126
- 64
**138**- 140

**Solution :**

When the letters of English alphabet is assigned an even numerical value, then letters of the given word i.e. MODERN may be represented as follows:

M ⇒ 13 x 2 = 26

O ⇒ 15 x 2 = 30

D ⇒ 04 x 2 = 08

E ⇒ 05 x 2 = 10

R ⇒ 18 x 2 = 36

N ⇒ 14 x 2 = 28

Total value of the letters for word MODERN = 26 + 30 + 08 + 10 + 36 + 28 = 138

Hence, C is the required answer.

**SSC2MT15**

- L
- D
- K
**N**

**Solution :**

The sum of the numerical value of the letters around each star is always 55.

1^{st} Figure

⇒L + P + U + A + E

⇒12 + 16 + 21 + 1 + 5 = 55

2^{nd} Figure

⇒K + N + D + S + G

⇒ 11 + 14 + 4 + 19 + 7 = 55

Similarly in 3^{rd} Figure,

⇒ O + C + ? + T + C = 55

⇒ 15 + 3 + ? + 20 + 3 = 55

⇒? + 41 = 55

⇒? = 14

Hence, N is the required answer.

**SSC2MT16**

- 6
- 7
- 9
**11**

**Solution :**

The figure may be labelled as shown.

The quadrilaterals in the figure are ABCD, ABDE, ABDF, ABDH, CDHA, CDEA, CDFA, DEAG, DEFA, FAGD and AGDH.

**SSC2MT17**

**Direction:**The question below, there is a statement followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true. Then consider the 2 conclusion together and decide which of them follows beyond a reasonable doubt from the information given in the statement.

**Statement:**The court has handed down many rulings that make legislators and holders of public office accountable for corruption.

**Conclusions:**

I. The court is now keen on establishing a time-bound and exclusive judicial mechanism.

II. To get as many possible votes from the public.

**Only conclusion I follows**- Only conclusion II follows
- Both conclusion I and II follow
- Neither conclusion I nor II follows

**Solution :**

There are elections held in courts hence, courts are not at all linked with public votes so, conclusion 2 is incorrect. Courts, taking exclusive steps for corruption tell us that court is trying to build exclusive judicial mechanism and this makes conclusion 1 reasonable. Hence, options A is the correct option.

**SSC2MT18**

Plastic, Bottle, Glass

**Solution : Answer B**

Some plastic can be glass and some glass can be bottle and some bottle can be plastic. Hence, option B is the correct response.

Hence, option (A) is the correct answer.

**SSC2MT24**

A word is represented by only one set of numbers as given in any one of the alternatives. The sets of numbers given in the alternatives are represented by two classes of alphabets as shown in the given two matrices. The columns and rows of Matrix-I are numbered from 0 to 4 and those of Matrix-II are numbered from 5 to 9. A letter from these matrices can be represented first by its row and next by its column, for example, ‘A’ can be represented by 00, 13 and ‘T’ can be represented by 56, 68,89 etc. Similarly, you have to identify the set for the word “**VIEW**“.

MATRIX I

MATRIX II

- 99, 66, 43, 04
**99, 24, 11, 14**- 99, 66, 11, 34
- 99, 42, 57, 44

**Solution :**

It’s best to solve this type of question by the elimination method, i.e. we will check each option and eliminate the wrong options.

The two matrices are as follows:

MATRIX I

MATRIX II

Remember that a letter from these matrices is represented first by its row and next by its column.

Option (A) 99, 66, 43, 04

99- V

66- I

43- E

04- B

Option (B) 99, 24, 11, 14

99- V

24- I

11- E

14- W

Option (C) 99, 66, 11, 34

99- V

66- I

11- E

34- L

Option (D) 99, 42, 57, 44

99- V

42- I

57- A

44- C

Hence, the correct option is (B).

**SSC2MT25**

**23 years**- 25 years
- 28 years
- 30 years

**Solution :**

Romeo’s present age = 10 years.

His mother’s present age = (10+20) years = 30 years.

Romeo’s father present age = (30+5) years = 35 years.

Romeo’s father’s age at the time of Romeo’s birth = (35 – 10) years = 25 years.

Therefore, Romeo’s father’s age at the time of marriage = (25 – 2) years = 23 years.
