# Statement and Conclusions Questions

A) None follows | B) Only 1 follows |

C) Only 2 follows | D) Only 3 follows |

Explanation:

Since each combination has of premises has 2 particular premises, so no defenite conclusion follows

A) None follows | B) Only 1 follows |

C) Only 1 and 2 follows | D) All follow |

Explanation:

Some hills are rivers. Some rivers are deserts.

Since both the premises are particular, no defenite conclusion follows.

Some rivers are deserts. All deserts are roads

Since one premise is particular,the conclusion must be particular and should'nt contain the middle term. Since it follows that 'Some rivers are roads'. 1 is the converse of this conclusion and so it holds.

A) Only either 1 or 2 follows | B) Only 1 and either 2 or 3 follows |

C) Only 3 and either 1 or 2 follows | D) All 1 ,2 and 3 follow |

Explanation:

1 is the converse of 2nd premise,2 is the converse of 3rd premiseand 3 is the converse of 1st premise and such, all the 3 follow

A) Only 3 | B) Only 1 |

C) Only 2 | D) Only 4 |

A) I only | B) II only |

C) I, II, and III | D) None of the statements is a fact. |

Explanation:

All baseball caps have brims, since baseball caps are hats (Fact 3) and all hats have brims (Fact 1). This rules out statement III—but it doesn’t follow that all caps, a category that may include caps that are not baseball caps, have brims (statement I). Statement II cannot be confirmed, either, since it is possible, given the information, that all baseball caps are black.

A) All a,b and c follows | B) Only a and c follows |

C) Either b alone or a & b follows | D) None |

Explanation:

From statement (b)

Average of 11 players = 11 x 28 = 308

Average of 10 players = 10 x 27.3 = 273

Age of captain = 308 - 273 = 35.

From the Statement (a) we can say that captain's age (C) = y + 11 ...(1) where y-youngers age

From the statement (c),the averge age of 3groups of 3players each was given,

It means total 9 players age was given indirectly,

1st group: 25 x 3 = 75

2nd group: 28 x 3 = 84

3rd group: 30 x 3 = 90

Total is 75 + 84 + 90 = 249

Now {C + Y + (9 players age sum)}/11 = 28

Y + 11 + Y + (249) = 28 x 11=308

2Y+260=308

2Y = 308-260 = 40 ==> Y=24 ==> C(captain's age)= Y+11 = 24+11 = 35

Therefore, statement b alone or a & c only is the answer.

A) Only A is sufficient | B) Only B is sufficient |

C) Both (A) and (B) are sufficient | D) None of the above |

Explanation:

From statement B,

As the value of L = 0, the value of KL = 0.

Hence only statement B is sufficient.

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. |

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.
