Directions (Q. 1 - 2) : In each of the questions below are given four Statements follovved by three conclusions numbered I, II and III. You have to take the given Statements to betrueeven if they seem to beatvariance 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.
Statements: All sofas are tables.
All tables are telephones.
All telephones are cell phones.
No cell phone is a Computer.
Conclusions : I. All cell phones are tables.
II. Some sofas are Computers.
III. No sofa is a Computer.
All tablcs arc lelcphones + All telephoncs are cellphones = A + A = A = All tables arc cell phones → conversion → Some cell phoncs arc tables (1). Hence I does not follow. All sofo$ are tables + All tables are telephones + All lelcphones are cell phones + No cell plione is a Computer - (A + A) + A + E = (A + Al -i- E = A + E = E = No sola is a Computer llence III follows white II does not.
Statements: Some mountains are hüls.
All hüls are mountains.
All mountains are rivulets.
No rivulet is acanal.
Conclusions : I. All mountains are rivulets.
II. Some hüls are canals.
III. Some rivulets are canals.
A repetition cannot bc a conclusion Hence I does not follow. Since the only Statement containing 'canal' is a negative type, no positive inlercnce with 'canal' can be true. Hence neither II nor III follows.
Direction (Q. 3 - 7) : An arrangement machine, when given an input line of words, rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is the Illustration of the input and the Steps ol'arrangement:
Input: I was not present at the spot
Step I: I spot not present at the was
Step II : 1 at not present spot the was
Step III: at I not present spot the was
Since the words are already arranged. the machine stops after this step. Otherwise the machine may carry on its logic untü the words get fully arranged. Study the logic and answer the questions that follow:
Input: The employees of Peregrine are on tenterhooks Which of the following will be the last step for the given input ?
In put: The employees ol pcrcgrine are on tenterhooks
Stepl: lenlerhooks employees of l'eregrine are on
Step II : On employees of Peregrine arc tenterhooks the
Step III : On employees ol arc l'eregrine tenterhooks the
Step IV: Are employees of on Peregrine ten terhooks the
Note that Step Iii has only the last ihree words arranged. Which implies none of the last three words were in their place in the input So (1) and (3t are not probable Now. try others tili one of them makes you reach the answer.
Input: Both firms confirmed there were certain difficulties
Step I: Both firms confirmed there difficulties certain were
Step I I : Both firms confirmed certain difficulties there were
Step I I I : Both difficulties confirmed certain firms there were
Step IV: Both certain confirmed difficulties firms there were
Thus step III will be the penultimate one
Direction (Q. 8 - 10) : Read the following Information and answer the questions given below it.
i) Seven buses M. N, O, P. Q, R and S are run by a Company every day. Each bus makes a 4-hour trip.
ii) From Monday to Friday the following schedule is followed: the first bus leaves at 8 a.m., the second after 45 minutes, the next one 30 minutes later, another one after another 45 minutes. followed by the next 35 minutes later, and so on.
iii) On Saturday and Sunday the first bus leaves at 7.30 a.m. and the remaining buses at intervals of one hour each.
iv) 0 leaves immediately after M and is followed by S.
v) No bus leaves after O.
vi) R leaves immediately before M but not immediately after P.
When P is about to Finish its trip on Sunday, which bus is about to leave ?
