Solutions:
1. D) Shobha turns left after walking 20 metres towards East. Now she walks 15 metres towards North. She turns right towards East again and walks 25 metres further. Finally turning right towards South, she walks 15 metres. The distance moved towards North and towards South is same, i.e., 15 metres. So, Shobha is 20 + 25 metres = 45 metres away from her starting point.

2. B) Total students = [Rakesh’s position from upwards + Rakesh’s position from downwards] – 1 = [9 + 38] – 1 = 46
3. E) ? = 540 ÷ 36 × 12 + 75 – 55
or ? = 15 × 12 + 75 – 55
or ? = 180 + 75 – 55 = 200
4. D) B = K …(i)
K < D …(ii) D > M …(iii)
From (i) and (ii), we get D > K = B …(iv)
From (iii) and (iv), no specific relation can be obtained between B and M. Therefore, B = M (Conclusion I) and B < M (Conclusion II) are not necessarily true.
5. B) H < N … (i) N > W …(ii)
W ≥ V …(iii)
From (ii) and (iii), we get N > W ≥ V …(iv)
From (i) and (iv), no specific relation can be obtained between H and V. Hence, H < V (Conclusion I) is not necessarily true. But V < N (Conclusion II) follows from equation (iv).
6. C) J ≤ D …(i)
Q ≥ D …(ii)
Q < M …(iii) Combining (i) and (ii), we get Q ≥ D ≥ J Q > J (Conclusion I) or Q = J (Conclusion II). Hence, either conclusion I or conclusion II is true.
