#### What term is the opposite of "ambiguity" in this list?

The opposite of "ambiguity" is "certainty." Therefore, among the options provided:

Certainty

This choice is most likely to be the opposite of "ambiguity."

#### It costs $50 to travel 300 miles on gas. What is the entire cost of petrol for him on a 1500-mile drive?

To find the total gas expense for a 1500-mile drive, you can use the proportion:

\text{Total Expense} = \left(\frac{\text{Total Miles}}{\text{Miles per $}}\right) \times \text{Cost per $}

In this case:

Total Expense=(1500/300)×50

Total Expense=5×50=250

Therefore, the total gas expense for a 1500-mile drive would be $250.

#### To finish the series, locate these numbers:

1.5,2,3,4.5,6.5,?,?,?,

1.5, 2, 3, 4.5, 6.5, 9, 12, 15.5,

To find the next number of the series: first add 0.5, then increase by additional 0.5 with every step. So, first 0.5, then 1, then 1.5, then 2, then 2.5, and so on.

1.5 + 0.5 = 2

2 + 1 = 3

3 + 1.5 = 4.5

4.5 + 2 = 6.5

6.5 + 2.5 = 9

9 + 3 = 12

12 + 3.5 = 15.5

#### As _____? ______ is to GENEROUS, ANCIENT is to MODERN.

The analogy here is based on the relationship between opposite concepts: ANCIENT and MODERN are opposites in terms of time, representing something old and something contemporary. Similarly, to find the opposite of GENEROUS, we are looking for a word that represents the opposite quality.

The opposite of GENEROUS, which implies a willingness to give and share, could be STINGY, meaning unwilling to give or spend.

So, the analogy is:

ANCIENT is to MODERN as STINGY is to GENEROUS.

#### What would the temperature be at 35,000 feet if the temperature drops by 2 degrees for every 1,000 feet of altitude attained and the temperature is 25 degrees at sea level?

Divide 35,000 by 1000 to find the number of increments of temperature decrease:

35,000 divided by 1,000 = 35

Now multiply 35 by 2 to find the number of total degrees of decrease:

35 x 2 = 70 degrees

Then subtract 70 degrees from 25 degrees at sea level:

25 - 70 = -45 degrees

#### Which of these values is the lowest?

Let us consider one option at a time:

1/3 + 3/6:

1/3 is the same as 2/6, making it easier to add the fractions:

2/6 + 3/6 = 5/6

4/2 – 3/6:

3/6 is the same as ½, making it easier to subtract the fractions:

4/2 – 1/2 = 3/2, or 1.5

1 – 1/10:

1 – 1/10 = 9/10

3 – 10/5:

10/5 is the same as 2, so:

3 – 2 = 1

We can see that the lowest value is 5/6, so the correct answer is: 1/3 + 3/6

#### Educators are to be in schools. _________ is the hospital.

The analogy is based on the relationship between a profession and the place where that profession typically works. A TEACHER works in a SCHOOL, and a professional who works in a HOSPITAL is a DOCTOR.

So, the answer is DOCTOR.

#### Mileage is the measure of distance. When mass is to

Miles are used to measure distance. Kilos are used to measure mass.

#### Reality

At the bar, the ten pals each ordered one drink.

A half placed a beer order.

A few placed a glass of wine order.

One had a tonic and gin.

A non-alcoholic beverage was had by those who did not have a gin and tonic, a glass of wine, or a beer.

In summary

A person placed an order for a non-alcoholic drink.

What is the conclusion based on the facts?

The evidence supports the validity of the conclusion.

The evidence refutes the conclusion.

The conclusion cannot be supported or refuted by the facts.

Ten friends ordered a drink.

Half of them (meaning 5) ordered a beer.

Five friends remain.

We know that one friend ordered a gin and tonic.

Four friends remain.

We know that a few of them ordered a glass of wine. But how many is a few? It must be at least two, but it could be three.

Since we do not know exactly how many friends ordered wine, we cannot tell how many had a non-alcoholic beverage.

#### What is the series' next number?

5000 , 1000 , 200 , 40 , _?_

The given series appears to be decreasing by a factor of 5 each time:

5000÷5=1000

1000÷5=200

200÷5=40

Following the same pattern, the next number in the series would be:

40÷5=8

So, the next number in the series is 8.
