Ifthe letters in the word ULTRAVIOLETare arranged in the alphabetical order and each letter is assigned numerical value equal to its serial number as in the English aiphabet, what is the difference between the sum of oddpositioned nos. and that of even-positioned nos. ?
ara hile chapra = Both are towns .... (i)
balia hile la = She accepts both .... (ii)
jila hile la = Both accepts beauty .... (iii)
Front (i) and (ii), we get hile - both .... (iv)
Front (ii), (iii) and (iv), la = accepts
Hence. from (iii), jila = beauty
Now using (i). 'ara chapra jila' is the code for 'towns are beauty'.
Direction (Q. 5 - 9) : In each question below is given a Statement followed by two assumptions numbered 1 and II. An assumption is something supposed or taken for granted. You have to consider the Statement and the following assumptions and decide which of the assumptions is implicit in the Statement.
Statement: With the entire administrative system of the country steeped in corruption, any attempt at diluting the powers of the CVC must be thwarted by all. and especially the media.
Assumptions: I. The media works as the most important instrument of control against the people in power.
II. CVC reputation is beyond reproach.
Statement: The emergence of acute competition because of fresh entry of companies benefits the consumer.
Assumptions: I. The monopoly of a Company in a specific sector is not good for consumers.
II. When competition among companies increases, the consumer get better quality, new technology, discounts and innovative sales schemes.
Statement: India suffers a huge loss of power annually. Technically described as transmission and distribution losses, this is a euphemism for largescale theft.
Assumptions: I. India has an adequate power generation capacity.
II. Large-scale transmission and distribution losses are not possible.
If there is a huge loss of power, it is being assumed that a lot of power is being generated. But one can't assume whether the generation or its capacity is adequate. Hence I is not implicit. II is assumed from the element of suspicion present in the Statement.
Statement: The most important quality a model should possess is confidence. One need not be conventionally good-looking to be a model.
Assumptions: I. To become a model what counts is not a good-looking face but confidence.
II. Good looks are no criteria for being a model.
I is a restatement Hence it is not implicit. Good looks are not the same as being conventionally good-looking. Confidence brings good looks even to the conventionally not-so-good-looking. Since good looks are being ruled out only in the conventional sense, II is not implicit
Statement: "The economic fortunes of the USA would determine the health of the Indian economy."— FICCI president
Assumptions: I. The Indian economy has no independent existence of its own.
II. The US economy influences the world economy.
The influence of one economy on the other does not imply that the latter has no independent existence. Hence I is not implicit. Just because the US economy influences the Indian economy, one can't conclude that II is being implied. The influence can be feit even if India's bilateral trade with the US is of alarge volume.
