Directions (1 – 5): In each of the questions below, statements are given followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to take the given statements to be true, even if they seem to be at a variance with commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements, disregarding commonly known facts.

1. Statements: All pages are links. All boxes are pages. No chart is a link.
Conclusions:
II. Some pages being charts is a possibility
A) only 1st follows
B) only 2nd follows
C) either 1st or 2nd follows
D) neither 1st nor 2nd follows
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
A) only 1st follows
Explanation:

If some pages are charts, then some links will be charts, which is not possible acc. to 3rd statement.

2. Statements: Some pages are tables. All tables are charts. Some charts are caps.
Conclusions:
I. All charts being pages is a possibility.
II. Some charts are tables.
A) only 1st follows
B) only 2nd follows
C) either 1st or 2nd follows
D) neither 1st nor 2nd follows
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
Explanation:

There is no negative statement, so possibility statement follows definitely.

3. Statements: All gliders are shapes. No shape is symbol. All symbols are pictures.
Conclusions:
I. No picture is a glider.
II. Some shapes are not pictures.
A) only 1st follows
B) only 2nd follows
C) either 1st or 2nd follows
D) neither 1st nor 2nd follows
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
D) neither 1st nor 2nd follows
Explanation:

All shapes being pictures is a possibility, so Some shapes are not pictures does not follow

4. Statements: No table is link. Some links are pages. All pages are glass.
Conclusions:
I. Some tables are not pages.
II. Some pages are not tables.
A) only 1st follows
B) only 2nd follows
C) either 1st or 2nd follows
D) neither 1st nor 2nd follows
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
B) only 2nd follows
Explanation:

All tables are pages is a possibility, so I does not follow.
There is no possibility that all pages are tables(because this will make some tables are links – not possible), so II follows.

5. Statements: Some cats are tigers. All lions are tigers. No dog is a cat.
Conclusions:
I. Some tigers are not dog.
II. All lions being dog is a possibility.
A) only 1st follows
B) only 2nd follows
C) either 1st or 2nd follows
D) neither 1st nor 2nd follows
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
E) both 1st and 2nd follow
Explanation:

All tigers being dog is not a possibility, so I follows.
II is a possibility.

6. In a certain code language ‘this is not done’ is written as ‘ja di za pa’; ‘done case is not’ is written as ‘ga za ja pa’ and ‘no one as done’ is written as ‘da ge pa za’. What does ‘di’ stands for?
A) is
B) done
C) one
D) this
D) this
Explanation:

From all codes, ‘this’ and ‘di’ only present in 1st code.

7. How many such pairs of digits are there in the number 153826 each of which has as many digits between them in the number as when the digits are rearranged in descending order within the number?
A) None
B) One
C) Two
D) Three
E) More than three
D) Three
Explanation:

153826
In descending order – 865321
Pairs – 13, 58, 53

8. Rupa turned to her left after walking 12 m and then walked another 12 m. Now she turned to her left again and walked for 10 m, after this she turned to her right and after walking for 5m she reached her destination. Now she is facing east direction. In which direction did Rupa start her journey?
A) West
B) North-west
C) East
D) South-east
E) South
E) South
Explanation:

To solve this, we will start from opposite.
She is facing east now, and before that she had taken a right turn – this means she was walking in north direction, then took right turn and is in East direction finally.
Now before moving in north direction, she had taken a left turn – this means she was coming in east direction, took left turn and then she is in north.
Now before moving in east direction, she had taken a left turn – this means she was coming in south direction, took left turn and then she is in east.
So finally we have got that she started in south direction.

Directions (9 – 10):
‘P + Q’ means ‘P is the sister of Q’.
‘P × Q’ means ‘P is the wife of Q’.
‘P – Q’ means ‘P is the son of Q’.
‘P ÷ Q’ means ‘P is the mother of Q’.

1. What is the relation between ‘B and A’ in the expression ‘A × Q – M ÷ B + P’?
A) B is the mother-in-law of A
B) A is the aunt of B
C) B is the husband of A
D) B is the sister-in-law of A
E) None of these
D) B is the sister-in-law of A
Explanation:

A is the wife of Q and Q is the son of M, so A is daughter in law of M. Now M is mother of B, since A cannot be wife of B so A is sister in law of B.

2. What will come in the place of question mark, if ‘B is the daughter-in-law of A’ in the expression ‘B ÷ P ? Q – A’?
A) ×
B) +
C) ÷
D) –
E) × or –
D) –
Explanation:

Q is son of A, B is mother of P, so P should be child of B and Q, for B to be daughter in law of A.
