**Answers :**

**1) Answer: D**

In a club of 30 people, all of them belong to at least one group – chess, Drama and Art.

6 people belong only to the Art group.

5 people belong to all the three groups.

2 people have joined the Chess and the Art group but not the Drama group

15 people belong to the Art group.

Number of people who belong to Art and Drama group but not Chess group

= 15 – (6 + 2 + 5) = 2

2 people have joined only the Chess group.

3 people have joined only the Drama group.

Number of people who belong to Chess and Drama group but not Art group = 30 – (2 + 2 + 5 + 3 + 2 + 6) = 30 – 20 = 10

Number of people who belong to the Chess group = (2 + 10 + 2 + 5) = 19

**2) Answer: A**

Number of people who have joined the Chess and the drama group but bot the Art group = 10

**3) Answer: C**

Number of people belong to exactly one group = 2 + 3 + 6 = 11

**4) Answer: C**

Young one of deer is called fawn.

**5) Answer: A**

765429, 765419, **765319**, 764319, **654319**

**6) Answer: C**

V – 2 = 20

A – 2 – 25

L – 2 = 10

U – 2 = 19

E – 2 = 3

Similarly,

F – 2 = **4**

O – 2 = **13**

R – 2 = **16**

E – 2 = **3**

I – 2 = **7**

N – 2 = **12**

**7) Answer: B**

BOA, COB, DOC, EOD, FOE, GOF, HOG, IOH, AOC, EOC, EOG, GOI

**8) Answer: A**

The ratio of fathers age to his son’s age is 11 : 5.

Let their ages be measured in terms of a.

So, age of father is 11a and that of son is 5a.

According to question:

11a × 5a = 1375

→ a^{2} = 1375 ÷ (11 × 5)

Therefore, a^{2} = 25

So, a = 5

Age of father after 3 years = (11 × 5) + 3 = 58

Age of son after 3 years = (5 × 5) + 3 = 28

Ratio of their ages = 58 : 28 = 29 : 14

**9) Answer: A**

5 × 45 – 15 + 31 ÷ 41 = 5

After replacing ‘÷ and –‘, we get:

L.H.S = 5 × 45 – 15 + 31 ÷ 41

= 5 × 45 ÷ 15 + 31 – 41

= 5 × 3 + 31 – 41

= 15 + 31 – 41

= 5

**10) Answer: D**
