Intelligence Questions in NUST Entry Test
Intelligence Questions in NUST Entry Test : In Medical, Architecture and Engineering tests there are 10 Mcqs from this portion while in business studies there are 40 Mcqs. Most of the students who are naturally good at math are able to score full marks in this portion. Others can also get full marks if they practice.
In IQ you’ll basically face 4 types of questions which will be asked in different ways:
3) Odd one out
4) Find the missing number
Odd One Out:
This portion tests your intelligence and your general knowledge. In most of the questions General knowledge is tested. Now these questions can be about anything that exists including the people. Moreover such questions can have multiple answers depending upon the reader. Everyone thinks in his own way.
Questions may include 3 countries of Asia and a 4th one from Africa. You may be given 3 parts of a specific structure and a 4th one from some other source. Questions may include animals, birds, and books. Also a common question in which some months are given and you are to select the odd one. This is done on basis of number of days in them usually, however their can also be some different logic. To master this portion you need practice.
Questions from this category can give you hard time, but if you just follow the steps it will be an easy task.
An example question:
Maths moved 5km north, turned right and moved 4km straight, again turned right and moved 5km. What is his position with respect to the starting point?
- Most Repeated English Words in NETSolution:
Step 1: Draw the direction axis first of all. I.e. North, south, east and west.
Step 2: Consider origin as the starting point.
Step 3: Plot the distance moved as lines on the paper. i.e from origin a line towards north will show 5km, then a line on right 4km, then line on another right 5km. This is
the final point.
Step 4:the direction of the final point. Check the distance of this point from the origin. You can also be asked
This type has some further sub-types.
a) Substitution based questions:
e.g.: If “earth” is coded as 23456 then how the word “heart” will be coded as? Note the word Earth and Heart are made from the same set of alphabets. In this case each alphabet corresponds to a specific number. In this case 2 for e, 3 for a and so on. So you’ll use this knowledge to construct the new number from the given word i.e heart. In place of the number (23456) you can also be given another word. Then each alphabet will correspond to some other alphabet.
b) Each alphabet is moved forward or backward to give the new word: This method might seem lengthy apparently but once you get used to it, you will solve the questions within few seconds. Consider a question.
Q: If BAT stands for CDQ then PEN stands for?
Write all the alphabets from A to Z on a rough paper. You’ll be given pages during NET for rough work. Next write the numbers below these alphabets i.e. 1 for A, 2 for B, 3 for C, so on
and 26 for Z.
A B C D E ……….. Z 1 2 3
4 5 ……….. 26
Now convert the alphabets you have to numbers. i.e.
B A T will be 2 1 20
C D Q will be 3 4 17
Now from the second list of figures subtract the first one, one by one: 3 – 2 = 1
4 – 1 = 3
17 – 20 = -3
Now convert PEN into digits.
It will be 16 5 14
Add the differences you got above in these, i.e. 16 + 1 = 17 5 + 3 = 8
14 + (-3) = 11 So new word will be:
17 8 11
Convert it back to alphabets.
Q H K
And this is your answer.Some more examples:
- If MADRAS can be written as ARSARS, how can ARKONAM be written in that code?
The word is first written twice and the letters at the even positions in the word so obtained from the code.
- In a certain code, COMPUTER is written as RFUVQNPC. How is MEDICINE written in the same code?
- None of these
The letters of the word are written in a reverse order and each letter, except the first and the last one is moved one step forward, to obtain the code.
- If in a certain language FASHION is coded as FOIHSAN, how is PROBLEM coded in that code?
The first and the last letters of the word remain as such and the remaining letters are written in a reverse order, to obtain the code.
- If BOMBAY is written as MYMYMY, how will TAMIL NADU be written in that code?
- None of these
The letters at the third and sixth places are repeated thrice to code BOMBAY as MYMYMY. Similarly, the letters at the third, sixth and ninth places are repeated thrice to code TAMIL NADU as MNUMNUMNU.
- If CIGARETTE is coded as GICERAETT, then DIRECTION will be coded as
- None of these
The word in divided into groups of three letters each and then the letters in each group are written in a reverse order to obtain the code.
- According to a military code, SYSTEM is SYSMET and NEARER is AENRER. What is the code for FRACTION?
The letters in the first half and the latter half of the word are separately reversed to obtain the code.
- In a certain code, TRIPPLE is written as SQHOOKD. How is DISPOSE written in that code?
- None of these
Each letter in the word is moved one step forward and the first letter of the group. so obtained is put at the end, to obtain the code.
- If in a certain language KINDLE is coded as ELDNIK, how is EXOTIC coded in that code?
The letters of the word are written in a reverse order to obtain the code.
- In a code, CORNER is written as GSVRIV. How can CENTRAL be written in that code?
- None of these
Each letter of the word is moved four steps forward to obtain the code.
Finding the missing number
Find the number which replaces the question mark. 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13,?
In these questions you have to detect which operation is performed on first number to get next number, or which operation is performed on first two numbers to get 3rd number.
E.g. in this series 1, 2, 4, 8, 16… every number is being multiplied by 2 to get next number.
However in the first example, two numbers are added to get the next number. 1+2 = 3 2 +3 =5 and so on…
You have to search for any such operation. It can be multiplication, division, addition, a combination of two operations. In these questions you need to use ur brain.
As you’ll solve the questions you’ll get to know about different possibilities/operations which can be performed.
