Reasoning Symbols & Notations Practice set 2018-2019

In this article, we are discussing Reasoning Section Topic **(Symbols & Notations)** for the SSC CGL 2018-2019. These are the most important and diverse range of question for SSC CGL & SSC CHSL.

**Q1. If ‘+’stands for division, ‘÷’ stands for multiplication, ‘x’ stands for subtraction and ‘-‘ stands for addition, which one of the following is correct?**

(a) 18 ÷ 6 - 7 + 5 x 2 = 20

(b) 18 + 6 ÷ 7 x 5 - 2 = 18

(c) 18 x 6 + 7 ÷ 5 -2 = 16

(d) 18 ÷ 6 x 7 + 5 -2 = 22

Option:b

Explanation:

**Option (a)**

18 + 6-7 + 5x2 = 20

**After conversion**

18 x 6 + 7 ÷ 5-2 = 20

108 + 7/5 – 2 ≠ 20

**Option (b)**

18 + 6 ÷ 7 x 5- 2 = 18

**After conversion**

18 ÷ 6 x 7 - 5 + 2= 18

or, 3 x 7- 5 + 2 = 18

or, 21-5 + 2=18

or, 23-5 = 18

or, 18 = 18

**Q2. If ‘–‘ stands for division, '+’ for multiplication, '÷’ for subtraction and ‘x’ for addition, which one of the following equations is correct?**

(a) 18 ÷ 3 x 2 + 8-6= 10

(b) 18 -3 + 2 x 8 ÷ 6= 14

(c) 18 - 3 ÷ 2 x 8 + 6= 17

(d) 18 x 3 + 2 ÷ 8 - 6= 15

Option:b

Explanation:

**Option (a)**

18 ÷ 3 x 2 + 8-6 = 10

**After conversion**

18 - 3 + 2 x 8 ÷ 6= 10

or,18 - 3 + 2 × 8/6 = 10

or, 18 – 3 + 8/3 ≠ 10

**Option (b)**

18 - 3 + 2 x 8 ÷ 6= 14

**After conversion**

18 ÷ 3 x 2 + 8 - 6 = 14

or, 6 x 2 + 8-6 = 14

or, 12 + 8- 6 = 14

**Q3. In an imaginary mathematical operation ‘+’ means multiplication, ‘x’ means subtraction, '÷’ means addition and ‘-‘ means division. All other rules in mathematical operation are the same as in the existing system. Which one of the following gives the result of 175 - 25 ÷ 5 + 20 x 3 + 10?**
