Q 1 - Raj and Shini are ranked 7^{th} and 11^{th} respectively from the top among 31 students. Determine their ranks from the bottom.

Options :

Total numbers of students present behind the rank of Raj = 31 - 7 = 24

Therefore Raj’s rank is 25^{th} from below.

Now calculating for Shini = 31 - 11 = 20

This means that Shini’s rank will be 21^{st} from bottom.

Q 2 - Number of girls are standing in a row. Between Sita and Gita, 4 number of girls are present. From the left hand side, the rank of Sita is 14 and from right hand side, the rank of Gita is 7^{th}. Calculate the total number of girls.

Options :

Q 3 - In a list, the rank of Mahesh was 16 from the top and whereas from bottom, the rank is 29. The list was about the passed-out students. Six students were failed due to non participation and 5 were failed. Find the total number of students present in the class.

Options :

Total number of passed out students including Mahesh is

= 29 + 16 - 1 = 44

Now adding the failed students into it = 44 + (5 + 6) = 55 is the total number of students.

Q 4 - Rank of Sujay is 14^{th} from the top in a group of 25 students. Find his rank from below if 3 new students will be added to the bottom of the list.

Options :

Sujay’s current rank from below in a group of 25 students is

= (25 - 14) + 1

= 12

Now as 3 students will be added to the bottom of the list, the new rank of Sujay from bottom = 12 + 3 = 15

Q 5 - Rank of Madhaba is 14^{th} from the bottom in a list of 64 boys. What would be his new rank from the top if 3 new boys will be added to the bottom of the list?

Options :

Total number of students in the row = 64

Rank of Madhaba from the bottom = 14

So, rank of Madhaba from top would be = (64 - 14) + 1 = 51

Now as adding of new boys to the bottom of the list will not affect the rank of Madhaba from top, hence; his rank will be the same 51 from the top, even after the addition.

Q 6 - Deepak’s progress report card showed that his rank is 10^{th} among 50 students. Calculate the rank of Deepak from below.

Options :

The rank of Deepak can be calculated as = (50 - 10) + 1 = 41

Q 7 - The rank of X is 6^{th} from left and rank of Y is 18^{th} from right hand side in a row of letters. Calculate the extra number of letters required to make it a group of 30, if there are 6 letters present in between X and Y.

Options :

As per ranking of Y and X and the presence of 6 letters in between them, the total number of letters in the row will be

= 6 + 18 + 6

= 30

Now we can see that it is already a group of 30 letters. Hence; no more letters are required to be added to the group.

Q 8 - Out of 50 students, rank of Sanjay is 23^{rd} from top. What will be his rank from below?

Options :

This can be simply calculated as = (total students - rank from top) + 1

Q 9 - If you are standing in a queue and found out that your rank is 6^{th} from the front, 25^{th} from the back and your father enquired about the total number of persons standing in the queue over the phone, what will be your answer?

Options :

You can answer your father like this,

Total number of persons in the queue

= your rank from the front + your rank from the end - 1

= 6 + 25 - 1

= 30

Q 10 - Rank of Snigdha is 15^{th} from the top in a list of 55 girls. What would be her new rank from the bottom, if 3 new girls will be eliminated from the back of the list?

Options :

Rank of Snigdha before elimination of three girls from bottom = (55 - 15) + 1 = 41

Now elimination of 3 girls from the bottom of the list will reduce the rank of Snigdha further by 3 from bottom. So, the new rank will be = 41 - 3 = 38
