Directions (1-5): In the following questions, the symbols * , $, #, δ and % are used with the following meaning as illustrated below:
‘A $ B’ means ‘A is neither greater than nor smaller than B’.
‘A δ B’ means ‘A is neither greater than nor equal to B’.
‘A % B’ means ‘A is neither smaller than nor equal to B’.
‘A * B’ means ‘A is not smaller than B’.
‘A # B’ means ‘A is not greater than B’.
Now in each of the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusions I, II, III and IV given below them is/are definitely true and give your answer accordingly.

  1. Statements : H $ J, J δ Y, Y * K, K # P
    Conclusions:
    I. P % Y
    II. K δ J
    III. K # H
    A) None is true
    B) Only I is true
    C) Only II is true
    D) Only III is true
    E) All are true
    Answer
    A) None is true
    Explanation:
    H = J < Y ≥ K ≤ P gives
    No relationship between the given
  2. Statements: P * K, K % T, T δ O, O # N
    Conclusions:
    I. N % T
    II. P % T
    III. O % K
    A) Only I is true
    B) Only II is true
    C) Only I and II are true
    D) Only II and III are true
    E) None of these
    Answer
    C) Only I and II are true
    Explanation:
    P ≥ K > T < O ≤ N gives T < N, P > T
  3. Statements: F δ Q, Q $ V, V % B, B * P
    Conclusions:
    I. F δ B
    II. P δ V
    III. V % F
    A) Only I is true
    B) Only I and II are true
    C) Only II and III are true
    D) All are true
    E) None of these
    Answer
    C) Only II and III are true
    Explanation:
    F < Q = V > B ≥ P gives V > P, F < V
  4. Statements : Z % Q, Q # K, K $ M, M δ P
    Conclusions:
    I. M $ Q
    II. M % Q
    III.P % Q
    A) Only either I or II and III are true
    B) Only III is true
    C) Only either I or II are true
    D) Only I is true
    E) None of these
    Answer
    A) Only either I or II and III are true
    Explanation:
    Z > Q ≤ K = M < P gives Q < P
    Q ≤ K = M gives either Q = M or Q < M
  5. Statements : Q # K, K $ T, P % T, V * P
    Conclusions:
    I. T * Q
    II. P % K
    III. P % Q
    A) Only I and II are true
    B) Only II and III are true
    C) Only I and III are true
    D) Only II is true
    E) All are true
    Answer
    E) All are true
    Explanation:
    Q ≤ K = T < P ≤ V gives Q ≤ T, K < P, and Q < P
  6. Statement: To study the causes of the failure of just concluded summer monsoon in the country, the Meteorological Department has decided to hold a brainstorming session of the weather experts.
    Assumptions:
    I. The behavior of the summer monsoon was intriguing.
    II. Thorough scientific investigation will reveal the causes of failure of monsoon.
    III. Brainstorming sessions organized earlier could not produce fruitful results.
    A) All I, II, and III are implicit
    B) Only II is implicit
    C) None is implicit
    D) Only I and II are implicit
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    D) Only I and II are implicit
    Explanation:

    I. Behavior was intriguing, that’s y session is being organized.
    It is also assumed that the session will give results that’s y session is being organized.
    It cannot be assumed that earlier sessions proved no result that is y this session is organized.
  7. Statement: The high court of a state has directed the state government to issue a notification for all four wheelers to check high-speed driving.
    Assumptions:
    I. Such notification will put an end to accidents.
    II. Such notification will help in reducing the possibilities of road accidents.
    III. High speed of vehicles cause road accidents.
    A) All I, II, and III are implicit
    B) Only II and III is implicit
    C) None is implicit
    D) Only I and II are implicit
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    B) Only II and III is implicit
    Explanation:

    An end to accidents cannot be there but accidents can be reduced by the notifications.
    Notification is to check high speed driving so it can be assumed that high speed cause road accidents.

Directions (8-10): Study the following information to answer the given questions:
In a certain code, ‘school is far from here’ is written as ‘to ga di ba ni’, ‘here is the school bus’ is written as ‘ru to ni di zi’, ‘come from school’ is written as ‘ga ni mo’, and ‘is the bus late’ is written as ‘ru zi fa to’.

  1. What will the code ‘fa mo ba’ stand for in the given code language?
    A) come far late
    B) bus far late
    C) come far school
    D) some late from
    E) None of these
    Answer
    A) come far late
    Explanation:
    fa and late only present in last code
    come and mo only present in second last code
    far and ba only in 1st code.
  2. What may the code ‘ru mo di’ stand for in the given code language?
    A) the bus here
    B) come from here
    C) come the late
    D) come the here
    E) late is come
    Answer
    D) come the here
    Explanation:
    mo is come
    from 1st, 2nd and last – ‘is’ is ‘to’
    from 2nd and last – the bus – ru zi
    now if we see the options, come bus is not on any option. Come the is in two options, so one of them is answer and thus ‘ru’ is ‘the’
    di is present in 1st and 2nd code and from ‘late’ and ‘here’, ‘here’ is also present in both.
  3. What may be the code for ‘come this far’ in the given code language?
    A) ba mo ru
    B) mo ba zi
    C) jo mo di
    D) jo ba mo
    E) jo ba ni
    Answer
    D) jo ba mo
    Explanation:
    ‘come’ is ‘mo’, ‘far’ is ‘ba’. Now ‘mo’ and ‘ba’ in A, B, D options, from A, B, D options, ‘zo’ is not present anywhere in the codes, and ‘this’ is also not present.
