Directions (1-5): Study the following information to answer the given questions:
In a certain code, ‘always go with ideas’ is written as ‘ba ri dib gi’, ‘ideas and with approach’ is written as ‘ta gi ma ri’, ‘go approach and insights’ is written as ‘ma jo ba ta’, and ‘with and better mind’ is written as ‘ki ri to ta’.

  1. What is the code for ‘ideas’?
    A) dib
    B) ba
    C) gi
    D) ma
    E) Cannot be determined
    Answer
    C) gi
    Explanation:

    E) mind
    Answer

    B) go and innovate
    C) ideas and approach
    D) go with mind
    E) always better ideas
    Answer
    B) go and innovate

    From que 2, ta – and
    ba – go from 1st and 3rd code
    lo and innovate not present anywhere, so lo can be innovate
  4. What is code for ‘with’?
    A) ki
    B) ri
    C) to
    D) ta
    E) ba
    Answer

    D) to dib jo
    E) dib to ba
    Answer
    D) to dib jo
    Explanation:

    Insights – jo, always – dib,
    Better is ‘ki’ or ‘to’
    So code should be ‘jo dib ki’ or ‘jo dib to’. ‘jo dib to’ is present in options

Directions (6-10): In all the questions that follow, relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. The statements are followed by two conclusions. Give answer accordingly.
(A) only 1st follows
(B) only 2nd follows
(C) either 1st or 2nd
(D) neither 1st nor 2nd
(E) both 1st and 2nd

  1. Statements: Z > B ≤ G = C, G ≤ P ≤ T, C ≤ M
    Conclusions:
    I. T > M
    II. T ≤ M
    Answer & Explanation
    (C) either 1st or 2nd
    Explanation:

    T ≥ G = C ≤ M, this gives both T and M less than equal to F
    So either T will be > M or T will be ≤ M
  2. Statements: W ≥ S > K, S > F < C, P > W
    Conclusions:
    I. W > F
    II. P > C
    Answer & Explanation
    (A) only 1st follows
    Explanation:

    W ≥ S > F, so W > F
    P > W ≥ S > F < C, so relation cant be determined between P and C
  3. Statements: N > V < B ≤ C, P ≤ M ≤ V, G < M
    Conclusions:
    I. C > G
    II. P < N
    Answer & Explanation
    (E) both 1st and 2nd
    Explanation:

    C > V ≥ M > G, so C > G
    P ≤ V < N, so P < N
  4. Statements: H > M, M < N, N ≥ K
    Conclusions:
    I. K < M II. H > N
    Answer & Explanation
    (D) neither 1st nor 2nd
    Explanation:

    K ≤ N > M, so no relationship between K and M
    H > M < N, both H and N less than M so no relationship between H and N
  5. Statements: D ≥ E ≥ J, R < P, P > Q
    Conclusions:
    I. Q > E
    II. D > P
    Answer & Explanation
    (D) neither 1st nor 2nd
    Explanation:

    Q < P > R ≤ E, so relation cant be determined between Q and E
    D ≥ R < P, so relation cant be determined between D and P
