Q:

Gold demand has fallen in the first half due to rising prices and the trend is likely to continue in the second half.

Conclusions :

I. Customers are very price-sensitive

II. There will be no improvement in demand in the second half

A) If only conclusion I follows B) If only conclusion II follows
C) If neither I nor II follows D) If both I and II follow

Answer:   A) If only conclusion I follows



Explanation:

Fall of demand of gold is due to rising prices. Hence, I can be concluded. II cannot be concluded from the given statement.

Q:

Study the question and all the three statements given and decide whether any information provided in the statements are redundand and can be dispensed with while answering the questions.

Question : 

What is the rate of interest per year ?

Statements :

1. The amount invested is Rs. 6000.
2. The amount becomes Rs. 6741.60 in 2 years at compound interest.
3. The difference between compound interest and simple interest in 2 years is Rs. 21.60.

A) Only 3 B) Both 2 & 3
C) Any two of (1, 2 & 3) D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Any two of (1, 2 & 3)

Explanation:

Using Both 1 & 2 statements we get the rate of interest as in (1) we have given principle amount and in (2) compound interest for 2 years. By this data we get the rate%.

Using Both 1 & 3 statements we can get the rate% as we have principle amount & difference between compound interest and simple interest in 2 years.

Using Both 2 & 3 statements we get compound interest & simple interest by which we get principle amount. So that we can calculate %rate.

Hence by using any two of the three statements(1,2&3) we get rate of interest.

Q:

In the following question, two equations numbered 1 and 2 are given. You have to solve both the equations and determine the relation between a and b.

1.  

2.  

A) a >= b B) a <= b
C) a < b D) a > b
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) a > b

Explanation:

1. 

5a(a-3)-3(a-3) = 0

(5a-3)(a-3) = 0

a = 3 or 3/5

2. 

3b(b+2)-1(b+2) = 0

b = -2 or b = 1/3

Here when a = 3, a > b for b = -2 and b = 1/3

when a = 3/5. a > b for b = -2 and b = 1/3.

Hence it is clesr that a > b.

Q:

Assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the two conclusions A and B given below is/are definitely true.

Statements: C < T < L= P > Q,  N > C > Y

Conclusions:   A. P > Y       B. Y < P

A) only conclusion B is true. B) only conclusion A is true.
C) neither conclusion I nor II is true. D) either conclusion I or II is true.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) only conclusion B is true.

Explanation:

From given statements, we can conclude that

N > C < T < L= P > Q  .....(1)

Here given that C > Y but in eq(1) we got that C < T < T <= P => Y is definitely less than P.

So only conclusion B is True.

Q:

Read both the statements given below and answer the question.

Q : Which train did Harish catch to go to office ?

Statements :

A. Harish missed his usual train of 4.15 p.m. A train comes in every 15 minutes.

B. Harish did not catch the 4.45 p.m. train or any train after that time.

A) If statement B alone is sufficient but statement A alone is not sufficient. B) If statement A alone is sufficient but statement B alone is not sufficient.
C) If both statement together are sufficient, but neither statement alone is sufficient. D) If statement A and B together are not sufficient.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) If statement A and B together are not sufficient.

Explanation:

From both statements we cannot conclude the train catched by Harish

Since he missed at 4.15 and train coes at 4.30, 4.45, 5.00,...

But in B given that he didn't catch the train at 4.45 and after that.

So both statements A & B together are not sufficient to answer the question.
