1. In a certain code language, ‘+’ means ‘*’, ‘*’ means ‘-‘, ‘-‘ means ‘/’ and ‘/’ means ‘+’. 9 + 4 – 6 * 6 / 8

A. 8.5
B. 8
C. 5.25
D. 0
E. 10

Solution:
‘+’ means ‘*’, ‘*’ means ‘-‘, ‘-‘ means ‘/’ and ‘/’ means ‘+’.
The given expression is
9 + 4 – 6 * 6 / 8
On converting this expression as per the directions, we get the expression
9 * 4 / 6 – 6 + 8
We simplify this expression using BODMAS rule,
9 * 4 / 6 – 6 + 8 = 36 / 6 – 6 + 8 = 8.

2. 36 : 343 :: __ : 1331

A. 81
B. 121
C. 100
D. 144
E. 169

Solution:
36 : 343 :: __ : 1331
(6)2 : (7)3 :: (10)2 : (11)3
Hence, 102 = 100 is the missing number.

C. if both the statements (A) and (B) are independent causes.
D. if both the statements (A) and (B) are effects of independent causes.
E. if both the statements are effect of some common causes.

Solution:
The statements are referring to different aspects of norms and guidelines. (A) refers to uses, while (B) refers to the negative side of it. Hence, they are effects of a common cause.

4. Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions:
A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement:
Input: 39 121 48 18 76 112 14 45 63 96
Step I: 14 39 121 48 18 76 112 45 63 96
Step II: 14 39 48 18 76 112 45 63 96 121
Step III: 14 18 39 48 76 112 45 63 96 121
Step IV: 14 18 39 48 76 45 63 96 112 121
Step V: 14 18 39 45 48 76 63 96 112 121
Step VI: 14 18 39 45 48 63 76 96 112 121
This is the final arrangement and step VI is the last step for this input.

If the second step for an input is as given below, what will be the fifth step for the same input?
Step II: 22 49 32 88 69 132 101 185

A. 22 32 49 88 69 101 132 185
B. 22 32 69 49 88 101 132 185
C. 22 32 49 69 101 88 132 185
D. 22 32 49 88 69 132 101 185
E. None of these

Solution:
Step I: The smallest number becomes first and the remaining numbers shift one position rightward.
Step II: The largest number among given numbers becomes last and the remaining numbers shift one position leftward.
The steps are repeated alternately till all the numbers get arranged in ascending order and that will be that last step for that particular input.
Step II: 22 49 32 88 69 132 101 185
Step III: 22 32 49 88 69 132 101 185
Step IV: 22 32 49 88 69 101 132 185
Step V: 22 32 49 69 88 101 132 185
Here, step III will be the same as step I and in step IV. As the largest number is already at the end, second largest will come in just one position ahead of the largest.

5. Should the director with political influence be preferred to the director with vast experience for the post of managing director?
Arguments:
I. Yes, now  a days, business becomes successful by exercising influence rather than using strategies.
II. No, strategies developed by an experienced businessman makes a business definitely successful.

A. if only argument I is strong.
B. if only argument II is strong.
C. if either I or II is strong.
D. if neither I nor II is strong.
E. if both I and II are strong.

Solution:
“Influence” may be interpreted in more than one way. Statement I says that “influences” is better than “strategies” but it is not referring directly to “political influence” which is what is given in the passage. Hence, this is a weak argument. “Experience” is to be constructed in only one way, that is experience in developing strategies which is a part of the job of a director. Hence this is a strong argument.

B. Septic

E. Sentiment

Solution:
Seclude, Section, Secure, Sentiment, Septic

The Indian Ministry of Defence has objected to the building of roads by Pakistan’s military close to the line of actual control (LOC), a corridor of width 2 km on either side of which has been declared as no military zone under a bilateral agreement between the two countries into Indian territory. However Pakistan argues that it enables its government to develop thickly populated tribal areas tucked close to the LOC on the side of Pakistan.

A. Roads built by Bangladesh government along the West Bengal state border have been effectively used by the Maoists to transport their cadre in to the forests in West Bengal and further down south.
B. Prime Minister of India should take up the matter with the head of the Pakistani government.
C. Terrorists cannot use these roads as these roads are well within the range of the Indian military radars. Even a slightest movement in this area can easily be detected and action can be taken very quickly.
D. A large area of forest cover has to be declared to lay these roads which would reduce the cover which is essential for the terrorists to infiltrate in to the Indian side.
E. These roads are being built at a distance less than 2 km from the LOC.
Which of the statements A, B, C, D and E mentioned above would best represents a course of action which can be taken by the Indian government to stall the laying of roads by the Pakistani military?

A. A
B. B
C. C
D. D
E. E

Solution:
Statement (A) is an example which would strengthen the apprehensions of the Indian government.
Statement (B) provides a way in which the Indian government should move to act upon the matter.
Statement (D) talks about the changes that would take place when these roads are laid.
Statement (E) talks about the distance at which from the LOC these roads are being laid.
The Indian government has to take up steps to see that the Pakistan army does not go ahead with laying of the roads.The statement does not indicate that the government of Pakistan is involved in laying of the roads. Hence, taking up the issue with the government is a diplomatic step towards resolving the matter. Hence, (B) is a logical course of action to be pursued.

66, 36, 18, (….)

A. 3
B. 6
C. 8
D. 9

12. In the 1966 Supreme Court decision Miranda v. Arizona, the court held that before the police can obtain statements from a person subjected to an interrogation, the person must be given a Miranda warning. This warning means that a person must be told that he or she has the right to remain silent during the police interrogation. Violation of this right means that any statement that the person makes is not admissible in a court hearing. This paragraph best supports the statement that

A. police who do not warn persons of their Miranda rights are guilty of a crime.
B. a Miranda warning must be given before a police interrogation can begin.
C. the police may no longer interrogate persons suspected of a crime unless a lawyer is present.
D. the 1966 Supreme Court decision in Miranda should be reversed.
E. persons who are interrogated by police should always remain silent until their lawyer comes.

Solution:
This answer is clearly supported in the second sentence. Nothing in the paragraph suggests that it is a crime not to give a Miranda warning, so choice a is incorrect. Choice c is also wrong because police may interrogate as long as a warning is given. There is no support given for either choice d or e.

13. Statement:
Should there be a complete ban on use of pesticides in agricultural sector?
Arguments:
I. Yes, this the only way to save the underground water from getting polluted with such dangerous chemicals.
II. No, this will adversely affect the agricultural production and the pests will damage the crops.

A. If only argument I is strong
B. If only argument II is strong
C. If either I or II is strong
D. If neither I nor II is strong
E. If both I and II are strong

Solution:
Argument I is not correct because of the word ‘only’ used in the argument. Hence, argument I is not strong. Argument II is strong because adverse impact on agriculture will debilitate the backbone of the economy.
