They traveled in a boat that went at a speed of 2m/s. when they are half a distance in the boat Sangeetha note there are 7 leg & 8 leg octopuses under the water. Ramu counted the total number of legs of octopuses and got 54. Sangeetha instantly said I know how many 7 leged octopuses are there under the water. They both reached the island after 20 min they left. How many seven-legged octopuses does Sangeetha calculate?

1. 4

2. 5

3. 6

4. 7

ANS: Total number of legs of both 7 & 8 legged octo bus

Find several 7 leged octopuses

Go from answer 

4(7 leged octobus) + X = 54.

5(7 leged octobus) + X = 54. Similarly, do for all. The x you get should be exactly divisible by 8. Only one answer will satisfy the condition.

Note: you may find a lot of nonsense stuff to test verbal ability. Just take the required data alone. From the next question onwards I post the necessary data only.

Q2. Total number of wheels of bicycles & 4-wheeled vehicles is 38. How many bicycles are there? ( This question has more than 6 lines to test your verbal ability)

ANS: similar to above.

Go from answer
