## FCI Practice Set – Reasoning Ability | Set-2

Directions (1-5) : Following questions are based on the five three digit numbers given below

548      691      962      354      479

1. If the first and the third digits of each number are interchanged with each other, then what will be the difference between the highest and the lowest numbers?

A. 705
B. 778
C. 648
D. 5211

Given Series:

548      691      962      354      479

After interchanging 1st and 3rd digits of each number, we get

845      196      269      453      974

Here, 974 is the highest number and 196 is the lowest number.

Hence, their difference will be (974 – 196 = 778)

Hence, 778 is the correct answer.

2. In which of the following numbers is the subtraction of first digit from the third digit is the second lowest?

A. 354
B. 479
C. 691
D. 962

548      691      962      354      479

The subtraction of 1st digit from 3rd digit within each number is,

548 → (8 – 5 = 3)

691 → (1 – 6 = -5)

962 → (2 – 9 = -7)

354 → (4 – 3 = 1)

479 → (9 – 4 = 5)

Hence, the second lowest difference is -5 which is from the number 691.

Hence, 691 is the correct answer.

3. What will be the answer, if the third digit of the smallest number is multiplied with second digit of the largest number?

A. 20
B. 22
C. 24
D. 29

Given Series:

548      691      962      354      479

Smallest number = 354

Third digit of 354 (smallest number) = 4

Largest number = 962

Second digit of 962 (Largest number) is = 6

On multiplying both digits, we get, 4 × 6 = 24

Hence, 24 is the correct answer.

4. Which of the following numbers is divisible by 3 if 5 is added to each of them?
A. 548
B. 691
C. 962
D. 354

548      691      962      354      479

If 5 is added to each of them: 553      696      967      359      484

553 ÷ 3 = 184.3

696 ÷ 3 = 232

967 ÷ 3 = 322.33

359 ÷ 3 = 119.66

484 ÷ 3 = 161.33

Hence, 691 is divisible by 3 when 5 is added to the number.

5. If the first and the second digits of each number are interchanged with each other, then what will be the second smallest number?

A. 354
B. 479
C. 962
D. 548

Given number:

548      691      962      354      479

On interchanging the first and second digits of the numbers, we get

458      961      692      534      749

Hence, the second smallest is 534, which we get from 354.

Hence, 354 is the correct answer.
