Study@Night: Reasoning Misc.
Directions (Q. 1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given question.
Amit, Arun, Ajay, Arvind, Amar, Amarjeet, Avinash and Ajit are eight friends studying in engineering colleges in different streams, viz Aeronautical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Technical Engineering, but not in the same order. All of them are seated around a circular table, facing away from the centre.
Amit sits third to the left of the person who studies Electrical Engineering. Only two persons sit between Amar and Avinash. Neither Amar nor Avinash studies Electrical Engineering. The person who studies Technical Engineering sits second to the right of Arvind. Arvind is not an immediate neighbour of Amit. Arvind does not study Electrical Engineering and Amit does not study Technical Engineering. The one who studies Aeronautical Engineering sits third to the left of Amarjeet. The one who studies Aeronautical Engineering and the one who studies Electrical Engineering are not immediate neighbours. Only one person sits between Arvind and the one who studies Chemical Engineering. The person who studies Electronic Engineering and the one who studies Computer Engineering are immediate neighbours. Only one person sits between Arun and the one who studies Civil Engineering. The one who studies Civil Engineering is an immediate neighbour of Ajit. Avinash and Arun are not immediate neighbours. Arvind does not study Computer Engineering.
1.How many people sit between Amar and the one who studies Civil Engineering (when counted in clockwise direction from Amar)?
2.Who studies Aeronautical Engineering?
3.Which of the following combinations is definitely true?
1) Arvind – Electrical Engineering
2) Ajay – Civil Engineering
3) Avinash – Chemical Engineering
4) Arun – Electronic Engineering
5) None of these
4.Who studies Chemical Engineering?
5) Can’t be determined
5.What is the position of the person who studies Mechanical Engineering with respect to Ajay?
1) Immediate left
2) Second to the left
3) Third to the right
4) Third to the left
5) Second to the right
Directions (Q. 6-10): In each question below are given two/three statements followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to take the given two statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance 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. Give answer
1) if only conclusion I follows.
2) if only conclusion II follows.
3) if either conclusion I or II follows.
4) if neither conclusion I nor II follows.
5) if both conclusions I and II follow.
Statements: No statement is a conclusion.
Some conclusions are assumptions.
All assumptions are arguments.
6.Conclusions:I.No argument is a conclusion.
II.No statement is an assumption.
7.Conclusions:I.All arguments being assumptions is a possibility.
II.All assumptions being conclusions is a possibility.
Statements:Some fabrics are cloths.
All fabrics are garments.
All plants are fabrics.
8.Conclusions:I.All fabrics being plants is a possibility.
II.No plant is a cloth.
9.Conclusions:I.All fabrics can never be cloths.
II.Any fabric which is a plant must be a garment.
10.Statements:Some villages are towns.
All towns are states.
No state is a world.
Conclusions:I.No town is a world.
II.Some villages which are states are not worlds.
