Ten most important problems of Reasoning for competitive exam which includes missing numbers and missing terms and their solutions in reasoning analogy . These questions are very very important for upcoming competitive exams like SSC CGL ,SSC CHSL and RRB NTPC Etc

# Ten most important problems of Reasoning for competitive exams

Solution

6 is related to 29 in the same way 24 will be related to ? , It means we have to apply same mathematical operations to 24 to get ?.
So if we multiply 6 with 5  and then subtract 1 from result obtained in previous step like this ( 6 × 5 )  - 1 which will be equal to 29.
Same operation we have to apply  to 24.
( 24 × 5 ) - 1 = 120 - 1 =  119

So Correct  option is ( c ) 119

## Problem # 2

5  :  100   ::   7  :  ?

(a) 135   (b) 91   (c) 196  (d) 49

Solution

Because in 1st case if we take Square of  5 then multiply it with 4 we shall have 100.
5² × 4 = 25 × 4 = 100
Same procedure will be applied in 3rd number by taking square of 7 then multiply it with 4
7² × 4 = 49 × 4 = 196

Correct  option is  ( c  ) 196

Problem # 3

6  :  18   ::   4  :  ?

(a)4     (b)6     (c)8    (d)10

Solution

Divide  6² by 2
6² ÷ 2 = 36 ÷ 2 = 18
Similarly divide 4² with 2
i.e.  4² ÷ 2 = 16 ÷2 = 8
Divide the square of 1st number by 2 to get 2nd number. Similarly take square of third number and then divide it by 2 to to get the number equal to? Since square of 4 is 16 then divided by 2 to get it.
6² ÷ 2 = 36 ÷ 2 = 18

4² ÷ 2 = 16 ÷ 2 = 8

Correct  option is (  c ) 8

Problem # 4

18  :  30   ::   36  :  ?

(a)64   (b)  62   (c)54    (d) 66

Solution

(18 × 2 ) - 6  = 36 - 6 = 30
(36 × 2 ) - 6  = 72 - 6 = 66
Multiply 1st number (18) with 2 and then subtract 6 from it
18 × 2 =  36 - 6 = 30
Similarly Multiply 3rd number ( 36 ) with 2 and then subtract 6 from it ,

36 × 2 = 72 - 6 = 66

correct  option is ( d) 66

Problem # 5

12  :  20   ::   30  :  ?

(a)48  (b)42    (c)15   (d)35

Solution
Method 1

Split 12  =  3 × 4
Split  20  = 4 × 5,
Split  30 =  5 × 6,
Study these factors (3 , 4 ) , (4 ,5 ) ,(5 ,6 ) so next pair will be  ( 6 , 7 ) , It means ? Will be replaced by the number 6 × 7 = 42

Method 2

12 will be written as square of 3 plus 3 , 20 will be written as square of 4 plus 4 ,30 will be written as square of 5 plus 5, so next number will be written as square of 6 plus 6 which is equal to 42 , Therefore   required option will be 42.
Or
Make continuous factors 3 and 4  , 4 and 5 ,5 and 6 and 6 and 7 of 12, 20, 30 and 42 respectively
12 = 3 × 4  ,
20 = 4 × 5  ,
30 = 5 × 6 so
42 = 6 × 7

Add same number to its square to get next number
Or multiply next number to the number
9  = 3² + 3   ,
20 = 4² +4 ,
30 = 5² + 5
42 = 6² + 6
Correct  option is ( b ) 42

Problem # 6

12  :  54   ::   15  :  ?

(a)64   (b)69   (c)56  (d)67

Solution

{(1st number ) × 5} - 6 = 2nd number
(12 × 5) - 6 = 54
Multiply 3rd number with 5 then subtract 6 from it
{(3rd number ) × 5} - 6 = 4th  number
(15 × 5) - 6 = 69
Multiply first number ( 12 ) with 5 then subtract 6 from it to get 2nd number ( 54 ) ,   Similarly   Multiply third  number ( 15 ) with 5 then subtract 6 from it.
( 1 2 × 5  ) - 6 = 60 - 6 = 54
( 1 5 × 5  ) - 6 = 75 - 6 = 69
Correct  option is ( b) 69

Problem # 7

6  :  5   ::   8  :  ?

(a) 6      (b)10        (c) 2     (d)4

Solution
Add 4 to 1st number and divide it with 2 to get 2nd number( 6 + 4 )/2 = 5
Similarly in 2nd case Add 4 to 3rd number then divide the resultant with 2 to get 4th number
( 8 + 4 )/2 = 6
Correct  option is ( a ) 6

Problem # 8

29  :  319  ::    23 :  ?

(a)115  (b)252 (c)151  (d)46

Solution

Add both the digits of first number  i.e. 2 and 9 then multiply it with first number to get second number. similarly in the third number add both the digits I.e  2 and 3  and multiply it with 3rd number to get fourth number.
29 × ( 2 + 9 ) = 29 × 11 = 319
23 × ( 2 + 3 ) = 23 ×  5  = 115

So 253 is the right option (a) 115

Problem # 9

6  :  64   ::   11  :  ?

(a) 127      (b) 124     (c) 144    (d) 169

Solution

Add 2 to 1st given number and take its Square to get 2nd number. Similarly add 2 to 3rd number and take it square to get fourth number.
(6 + 2 )² = 8² = 64
(11 + 2)² = 13² = 169

Correct  option is ( d ) 169

Problem # 10

36  :  50   ::   64  :  ?

(a)70   (b) 82     (c)78      (d) 72

Solution

Take Square Root of 1st number and add 1 to it then add 1 to  its Square to get 2nd number.
Similarly take square root of 64 add 1 to its square  root and take it square and add 1  to get 4th number.
36 = 6² --->  (6 + 1)² + 1 = 50 ,

64 = 8² ------> ( 8 + 1)² + 1 = 82
√36 = 6 add 1 to it = 7 , square this number = 49 + 1 = 50
√64 = 8 add 1 to it = 9 , square this number = 81 + 1 = 82

So  Correct option is ( b ) 82
