Q:

If the gifts are passed on, the whole purpose of the gift is defeated. Therefore, the gift should be one that is useful and at the same time it attracts you, appeals to you and you retain it.

Conclusions : 

I. If gifts are retained , their utility increases.

II. Gifts are not meant for repeated change of hands.

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:   B) If only conclusion II follows



Explanation:

I is not hinted at. It is an invention of the concluder's mind. II follows  because if "the whole purpose of something is defeated", it loses its meaning.

Q:

Find which of the two conclusions I and II given below is/are definitely true from the the given statements.

 

Statements: I > W > T > N, I = F = G = C

 

Conclusions:    I. W > I                 

                         II. C > N

A) Only Conclusion I is true B) Only Conclusion II is true
C) Both conclusions I & II are true D) Neither conclusion I nor II is true
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Only Conclusion II is true

Explanation:

From the given Statements : 

 1. I > W > T > N
 
 2. F = G = C
 

Conclusions are : 

 I. W > I (False)

 II. C > N (True)

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.
