Character Puzzles Reasoning Syllabus and Questions

In such type of questions a figure or a matrix is given in which some numbers are filled according to a rule. A place is left blank. The candidate has to find out a number from the given possible answers which may be filled in the blank space.

Some examples are given below.


Which number will replace the question mark ?

Solution : From figure (a) :
 (3^{2})+(2)^{2}\:=\:13
From fig. (b), (4)+ (8)^{2}\: =\:80
Similarly in fig, (C), ? =  (1)^{2}+(5)^{2}\:=\: 1+25\:=\:26

Hence the number 26 will replace the question mark.

Example 2.

Which number will replace the question mark ?

Solution : From fig. (a),
6+4+8\:=\:18 \rightarrow\:18+2\:=\:20
From fig. (b),
7+9+8 \:=\: 24\:\rightarrow\:24+2 \:=\: 26
Similarly in fig, (c),
6+5+12 \:=\: 2\: \rightarrow\: 23+2 \:= \:25 \:=\: (?)
Hence the question mark will be replaced by 25.

Example 3.

Which number will replace the question mark ?

Solution : from (a),
 9^{2}+8^{2}+7^{2}+6^{2}\:=\:81+64+49+36\:=\:230
From (b),
 6^{2}+7^{2}+3^{2}+4^{2}\: = \:36+49+9+16\:=\:110

Similarly from (c),
 9^{2}+6^{2}+5^{2}+4^{2}\:=\:81+36+25+16\:=\:158

Hence the question mark will be replaced by the number 158.

Example 4.

Which number will replace the question mark ?
Solution : From (a),
 7\times 6+3\: =\:45
(b)  5\times 4+6\: =\:26
Similarly from (c),
7\times 3+8\: =\:29
Hence the question mark will be replaced by the number 29.

Example 5.

Which number will replace the question mark ?
Solution :  (4+3)^{2}\: =\: (7)^{2}\:=\: 49

(8+5)^{2}\: =\:(13)^{2}\:=\:169
(11+12)^{2}\: =\:(23)^{2}\:=\:529
(10+9)^{2}\: =\:(19)^{2}\:=\:361
Hence the question mark will be replaced by 361
