**Wipro Logical Ability Questions**

**Q1) In the following questions, a pair of numbers that have a certain relationship is given. One of the pairs given in four options made (1) to (4) bears the same relationship, find that pair.**

36:1290

36:1290

A. 20: 580

B. 25: 120

C. 25: 620

D. 18: 645

**Answer -**Option C

**Explanation: **36: 1290

36*36 – 6 = 1290

Similarly

25*25 -5 = 620 hence option C

**Q2) In the following questions, the alphabets bear a Random Sequence Numbering. Find the Numerals that would be represented by the following words.**

If STREAM is written as 23 -24 -22 -9 -5 -17, how would you write BROOK?

If STREAM is written as 23 -24 -22 -9 -5 -17, how would you write BROOK?

A. 8 - 12 - 7 - 7 - 9

B. 6 - 22 - 19 - 19 - 15

C. 6 - 22 - 17 - 17- 7

D. 22 - 6 - 17 - 7 - 12

**Answer -**Option B

**Explanation: **

S T R E A M

23 -24 -22 -9 -5 -17

As per alphabet number S is 19+4 = 23

Similarly, T -20+4 = 24

R – 18+4 =22

E – 5+4 =9

A -1+4 = 5

M – 13+4 = 17

Similarly for BROOK will be coded as 6 - 22 - 19 - 19 - 15

**Q4) In each of the following questions, the terms follow a definite pattern.**

However, one term is wrong. Find the wrong term out of given options:

3,2, 8, 9, 13, 22, 18, 32, 23, 42

However, one term is wrong. Find the wrong term out of given options:

3,2, 8, 9, 13, 22, 18, 32, 23, 42

A. 8

B. 3

C. 22

D. 9

**Answer -**Option D

**Explanation: **The given sequence is a combination of two series:

I. 3, 8, 13, 18, 23 and II. 2, 9, 22, 32, 42

The pattern in I is + 5, and the pattern in II is + 10. So, in II, 9 is wrong and must be replaced by (2 + 10) i.e. 12.

**Q5) The terms given in the following questions follow a definite pattern and thus make a series. Find the missing number from the series out of the given options:**

20,19, 17, (--------)

20,19, 17, (--------)

A. 12

B. 13

C.15

D. 14

**Answer -**Option D

**Explanation: **20 -1 = 19

19 -2 =17

17 – 3 = 14, hence option D

**Q6) Five cars are parked in a row facing Eastward. E is parked to the left of A, B and C, B, C and A are parked to the left of D. C is parked between A and B. If B is parked fourth from the left, how far is A parked from the right?**

A. Fourth

B. Third

C. Second

D. First

**Answer -**Option A

**Explanation: **E is parked to the left of A,B and C,

Current Order: E ABC

B,C A are parked to the left of D

Current Order: E ABC D

C is parked between A and B.

Current Order: E A/B C B/A D

B is parked fourth from the left. Hence,

Current Order: E A C B D

A parked fourth from the right

QTX-- 17,20,24 {17+20+24= 61}

HKR-- 8,11,18 {8+11+18=37}

STE-- 19,20,5 {19+20+5 = 44}

except "STE”, other words produce odd results

**Q8) From the given choices select the odd one out.**

A. ADG

B. HKN

C. PSW

D. MPS

**Answer -**Option C

**Explanation: **A +3 – D+3 -G

H+3 – K+3 – N

P+3- S+4 – W

M+3 – P +3 – S

Only option C doesn’t follow the logic of +3, +3

**Q9) The question consists of a problem question followed by two statements I and II. Find out if the information given in the statement(s) is sufficient in finding the solution to the problem.**

**Problem question: How much time would a machine take to put caps on 300 bottles?**

**Statements:**

**I. It takes 8 hours to put caps on 300 bottles manually.**

**II. It takes 2 minutes lesser to put cap on a bottle using machine than putting it manually.**

A. Statement I alone is sufficient in answering the problem question

B. Statement II alone is sufficient in answering the problem question

C. Either of the statements taken individually is sufficient in answering the problem question

D. Both statements put together are sufficient in answering the problem question

E. Both the statements even put together are not sufficient in answering the problem question

**Answer -**Option D

**Explanation: **We have to find the time taken by a machine to put caps on 300 bottles.

The first statement gives the time taken to put caps on 300 bottles manually, but we have to find for a machine.

The second statement has a condition that states the time taken by a machine (a comparison of time taken).

So, we assume that we have to take both the 1st and the 2nd statement to find the required time taken by a machine.

Let's find the required time and see if our assumption is right or not.

It takes 8/300 hours = 480/300 minutes to cap a bottle, manually.

Then it will take (480/300 - 2) minutes = (480 - 600)/300 minutes = - 120/300 minutes to cap a bottle, using a machine.

Thus, it will take - 120/300 × 300 minutes = - 120 minutes = - 2 hours to cap 300 bottles.

Since time cannot be negative, then we can conclude that our assumption to determine time was wrong.

We understand that both the statements aren't sufficient to find the required time.

**Q10) From the given choices select the odd one out.**

A. AFB

B. MRN

C. KPL

D. RXS

**Answer -**Option D

**Explanation: **AFB --> 1, 6, 2 ==> {6-1=5, 6-2=4}

MRN --> 13, 18, 14 ==> {18-13=5, 18-14=4}

KPL --> 11, 16. 12 ==> {16-11=5, 16-12=4}

RXS --> 18, 24, 19 ==> {24-18=6, 24-19=5}

difference b/w 1st nd 2nd letter is 5 in all d words except "RXS"

**Q14) P is the father of R but is not his son. M is the spouse of R. How is M related to P?**

A. Son-in-law

B. Wife

C. Daughter-in-law

D. Uncle

**Answer -**Option A

**Explanation: **P is the father of R.

R is not his son. It means R is not a boy, but a girl. So R is his daughter.

M is the spouse of R; which means M is married to R. So M is a man and husband of R.

M being related to P. M has married the daughter of P. It means that M is the son-in-law of P.

Thus, the answer is: M is related to P as his son-in-law.
