In questions 1 to 5, four figures 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been given in each question. Of these four figures, three figures are similar in some way and one figure is different. Select the figure which is different.







In questions 6 to 10, a problem figure is given on the left side and four answer figures marked 1, 2, 3, 4 are given on the right side. Select the answer figure which is exactly the same as the problem figure.








In questions 11 to 15 there is a problem figure on the left hand side, a part of which is missing. Observe the answer figures 1, 2, 3, 4 on the right hand side and find out the answer figure which without changing the direction, fits in the missing part of the problem figure in order to complete the pattern in the problem figure.











In questions 16 to 20, there are three problem figures on the left hand side and the space for the fourth figure is left blank. The problem figures are in a series. Find out one figure from among the answer figures given on the right hand side, which occupies the blank space for the fourth figure on the left hand side and completes the series.









In questions 21 to 25, there are two sets of two problem figures each. The second set has a mark of interrogation (?). There exists a relationship between the first two problem figures. Similar relationship should exist between the third and fourth problem figure. Select one of the answer figure which replaces the mark of interrogation.


PART - VI  { Geometrical Figure Completion (Triangle, Square, Circle) }



In questions 26 to 30 one part of a square is on the left hand side as question figure and the other one is among the four answer figures 1, 2, 3, 4 given on the right hand side. Find out the figure that completes the square.

In questions 46 to 50 a problem figure is given on the left side and four answer figures, marked 1, 2, 3, 4 are given on the right side. Select the answer figure in which the problem figure is hidden/ embedded.






Section 2:  Arithmetic Test


The main purpose of this test is to measure candidate's basic competencies in   Arithmetic. All the Twenty-five questions of this test will be based on the following 15 topics


1.          Number and numeric system.

2.          Four fundamental operations on whole number.

3.          Fractional number and four fundamental operations on them.

4.          Factors and multiple including their properties.

5.          LCM and HCF of numbers.

6.         Decimals and fundamental operations on them.

7.         Conversion of fractions to decimals and vice-versa.

8.         Applications of number in measure length, mass, capacity, time, money etc

9.         Distance, time and speed.

10.        Approximation of expressions.

11.        Simplification of Numerical Expressions,

13.        Profit and loss.

14.        Simple interest.

15.        Perimeter, area and volume.


Note:- Emphasis will be more on testing of understanding and Application of the concepts and skills   involved. In order to provide some guidance to the candidates on the types of questions that are expected in Arithmetic lest, some examples are given below-


Example - 1 (Test of Understanding):


What is the prime factorization of 1000?

1.           10x10x10

2.           2x5x5x10

3.           2 x 2 x 2 x5 x 5

4.           2 x 2x 2 x 5 x5 x 5


A factorization of a number is said to be a prime factorization if (i) the product of the factors (taking a factor as many times as it occurs) is equal to the given number, and (ii) each factor is a prime number. Here only serial number 4 satisfies both the requirements. As such, serial number 4 is the correct answer.


Example 2 (Test of Understanding):


What is the average of first four odd numbers?

1.      2.5

2.      4

3.      5

4.      16

The first four odd numbers are 1.3.5 and 7.  Their average  (l+3+5+7)/4. As such, serial number 2 is the correct answer.



Example 3 (Test of Application):


A 1 km. long goods train is running at speed of I km. per 3 minutes, the time taken by this train to pass through 2 kms. Long tunnel is:



1 minute


3 minute


6 minute




The tunnel is 2 km. long and the train is I km. in length, the train will have to cover a total distance of 3 km. in order to pass through the tunnel running at a speed of 1 km, per 3 minutes, the train will take 9 minutes to pass through ibis tunnel and that is the correct answer. As such, serial number 4 is the correct answer.
