8 : 39 :: 72 : ?
» Explain it
C
The antecedent; 8 is first getting multiplied by 5 and then it is getting subtracted by 1 as 8 is the first multiple of 8. (8 = 8 × 1)

⇒ 8 × 5 – 1 = 39

Similarly,

We’ll first multiply 72 by 5 and then subtract 9 from it as 72 is the 9th multiple of 8. (72 = 8 × 9)

⇒ 72 × 5 – 9 = 351.

Hence, option C is correct.
2
123 : 4 :: 726 : ?
» Explain it
D
 123 ⇒ 12 = 4 3

Similarly,

 726 ⇒ 72 = 12 6

In this question, first two digits of the given number are divided by the third one.

Hence, option D is correct.

3
09 : 81  ::  04 : ?
» Explain it
A
9 ⇒ 92 = 81

4 ⇒ 42 = 16

Hence, option A is correct.

4
* 3 : 4  ::  6 * 5  :  ?
» Explain it
C
8 – 3 = 5; 5 – 1 = 4

Similarly;

6 – 5 = 1; 1 – 1 = 0

Alternatively,

8 × 3 = 24 : Its unit’s digit is 4.

6 × 5 = 30 : Its unit’s digit is 0.

Hence, option C is correct.

5
25 : 175 :: 32 : ?
» Explain it
