# New Pattern Reasoning Ability Questions for IBPS PO 2018

Direction (1 to 5): In every question two rows are given and to find out the resultant of a particular row you need to follow the following steps: -
Step 1: If an even number is followed by an odd (prime) number then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.
Step 2: If an odd number is followed by a perfect square then the resultant will be the subtraction of the square number from the odd number.
Step 3: If an odd number is followed by another odd number then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.
Step 4: If an even number is followed by an odd (non-prime) number then the resultant will be the subtraction of the odd number from the even number.
Step 5: If an odd number is followed by an even number then the resultant comes by multiplying the numbers.

 7 8 3 3 9 3

(E) 9

Ans1: (D)
In first row 1st number is even and next number is 15 which is an odd number (Condition 4 applied) = 18 – 15 = 3
Now 3 is odd number 6 is an even number (Condition 5 applied) = 6 × 3 = 18
Therefore resultant of first row is 18.
In second row first number is 8 which is even and next number is 5 which is an odd prime number (Condition 1 applied) = 8 + 5 = 13
We know that (54-18=36) is not a multiple of 13. Therefore it cant be an even number. It also cant be a perfect square since the difference would be negative which can't be the answer.
But as we know that sum of resultant of both row is 54
13 + X + 18 = 54
X + 31 = 54
X = 23 (which is as we assumed odd number)
Therefore, X = 23 is correct option.
Ans2: (A)
In first row 1st number is Odd and next number is 4 which is a perfect square. (Condition 2 applied) = 13 – 4 = 9
Now 9 is odd number 5 is a odd number (Condition 3 applied) = 9 + 5 = 14
Therefore resultant of first row is 14.
In second row first number is 1 which is odd and X = 14 is an even number (Condition 5 applied) = 1 × 14 = 14
Now 14 is an even number and 7 is prime odd Number(Condition 1 applied) = 14 + 7 = 21
Therefore resultant of 2nd row will be 21.
Ans3: (B)
43 is odd number and 36 is perfect square (Condition 2 applied) = 43 – 36 = 7
Now 7 is odd number and 2 is even number (Condition 5 applied) = 7 × 2 = 14
X is resultant of 2nd row therefore X = 14
Now in first row 14 is even number and 5 is prime odd number (Condition 1 applied) = 14 + 5 = 19
Now 19 is odd number and 16 is perfect square (Condition 2 applied) = 19 – 16 = 3
Hence resultant of 1st row will be 3
Sum of resultant of 1st and 2nd row = 3 + 14 = 17
Ans4: (E)
In first row 14 is even number and 9 is odd number (Condition 4 applied) = 14 – 9 = 5
Now 6 is an even number and 5 is odd prime number (Condition 1 applied) = 5 + 5 = 10
Therefore resultant of the first row is 10.
In 2nd row 21 is an odd number and 16 is a perfect square (Condition 2 applied) = 21 – 16 = 5
Now 5 is an odd number and 4 is a perfect square (Condition 2 applied) = 5 – 4 = 1
Therefore resultant of 2nd row is 1
Difference between resultants of the first and 2nd row = 10 – 1 = 9.
Ans5: (C)
In first row 7 is odd number and 8 is even number (Condition 5 applied) = 7 × 8 = 56
Now 56 is even number and 3 is odd prime number (Condition 1 applied) = 56 + 3 = 59
Therefore resultant of the first row is 59.
In 2nd row 3 is an odd number and 9 is a perfect square (Condition 2 applied) = 9 – 3 = 6
Now 6 is an even number and 3 is an odd prime number (Condition 1 applied) = 6 + 3 = 9
Therefore resultant of 2nd row is 9.
Difference between resultants of the first and 2nd row = 59 – 9 = 50.
