1.LIST, L is defined as : L=( a,b,c ) so that,A(L)=a;

B(L)=(b,c) [where a,b,c are theitems ]C(L) & D(L) are
defined as 
C(L)= * if L=( )=A(L) if L!=( ) & B(L) = (
D(L)= ** if L=( )=A(L) if L=!( ) &
……….=…………=…………based on these ques. 1 to 8 
eg. L(a,(a,b),(b,c)) given then c( L) =? Or D(
second part is given choose the first part( compound

(3) (stream )-(a) mountain (b) straight (c) (d)
(4) (crash)- (a) course (b) stock3 anagram 
first find the anagram of the given word & then 
choose the meaning of the anagram from the options. 
1. latter ->rattle 2..spread 3.risque
4.dangled(ansjogged)…….may be4 series . 
(1) 2,11,22,121 ,? ans 242 (2)102,211,1020,1210,?7

string S=abc now substrings P=ab Q=ad such that 
if p->q, then S=adc (according to the
firstoccurance)based on these type 
(a) S=abcabc ;P->Q Q->R R->P what would be
theresulting S ,given P=ab, Q=ba R=bc 
(b) S=aaabbb; P->Q Q->P R->P (according to the
two questions on some figures given (see

L1 L2 L3 
L1 is reduced to L2 with mathematical operation find 
that operation and reduce L3 to L4 with same

L1(6,3,4,4,7,2) reduces to



There are totally 5 sections in the qp and each
section has 8 

NO. of questions = 40 
Time = 60 min 
Negative marking = 0.25 for each wrong answer 

SECTION 1(try this at last because it is very tough and time consuming) L1, L2 - lists 
M(L1,L2) = L1 + L2 
If , L = (a,b,c) 
A(L) = a (first term); B(L) = (b,c) (except the first

I] P(L) = L if L=( ), & B(L)=() 
P(L) = A(B(L)) if L <> ( ), and B(L)<>( ) B(B(L))=( )

P(L) = M(A(L)), M(A(B(L)), P(B(B(L))) if B(B(L) <>C) 

II] R(L) = L : B(L)=( ) 
R(L) = A(L) if L<>() 
R(L) = M(dont know), R(B(B(L)))if B(B(L)) <>( ) 

With the above instructions, find the following using
1. R(P(L)) where L=(a,b,(a,b),(b,a)) 
2. R(P(L)) where L=(a,(a),(b,b),b) 

where A(L)=(a) 
So, third condition is applicable 
So, P(L)=M(a,M(b,P((a,b),(b,a))) find this using the
same rule and 


Question and Answers don't know 
If GODG is a valid work, then the no. of valid words
in the 
string (GGODGG, 
(* Not aware of correct procedure) 


A 'TARGET' is a number and 'BRICK' has five numbers
as clue. 
Use only four 
numbers (only once each number) from 'BRICK' using

+,-,*,/,() and attain the 'TARGET' 
1. TARGET = 114 BRICK = 
2. TARGET = 19 BRICK = 8,11,5,5,2 
3. TARGET = 87 BRICK = 
4. TARGET = 146 BRICK = 
5. TARGET= 127 BRICK = 

Ans: for 2 questions 
19 = (8+11-5+5) 
so ans = (8,11,5,5)

SECTION I - 8 questions Series.

1. Interchange of letters in a word and the adjacent
letters are also to 
be changed. given letters series like [also few
If we apply 25 on this it means we have to
interchange the letters 
at positions 2 and 5, and we have to change the
adjacent letters 2 and 5 
from A to B and B to A. 
That is q's A B B A A B 
after Step 1 i.e interchange 2 and 5. 

now change adjacent elements of 2 and 5...finally
answer becomes 
Ans: B A A B B A 

//Hint: As per question papers 5 questions above like
but numbers 

6. To get AAABBD from BBBAAA what ot apply:- 
a) 25 b) 34 c)25 & 34 d) none 

1. Given the function f(n a b c ) = ac if n=1 
f(n a b c) = f( n-1 a b c) + f( 1 a b c) + f( n-1 b a
c ) 
if n > 1 
f( 2) = ? 
Ans: f( 2 a c b ) = ab + ac + bc. 

2. similar question in functions. 
3. [ based on function in 1.] f( 4 a b c ) the number
of terms is...? 
Ans: f( 4 a b c ) = f( 3 a c b ) + f( 1 a b c ) + f(
3 b a c ) etc. 
= 5ab + 5ac + 5bc. 
4. f( 5 a b c ) = ?
