 # 3i Infotech Reasoning Questions

DIRECTIONS for the question 1 to 3:
In each question below are two/three statements followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to take the two/three given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from commonly known facts 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.
Give answer (2)    if only conclusion II follows.
Give answer (3)    if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
Give answer (4)    if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
Give answer (5)    if both conclusion I and conclusion II follows.
1. Statement:No toffee is coffee. No sweet is toffee.
Conclusions: I. No coffee is sweet.
II. All sweets are coffee

Possible figures are: Conclusion I: No coffee is sweet
This statement is not true as is seen from the second figure shown above.
Conclusion II: All sweets are coffee.
This is definitely false
So, neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows
2. Statement:All medals are awards. All rewards are medals.
Conclusions: I. All rewards are awards.
II. All awards are medals. So all rewards are awards
So, conclusion I is true.
II. All awards are medals.
This is clearly false.
So, only conclusion I follows
3. Statement:Some phones are mobiles. All mobiles are wireless.
Conclusions: I. some phones are wireless.
II. All wireless are phones.

Only conclusion I follows. 4. Ajay walked 2m towards east, took a right turn and walked 7m. He then took a left turn and walked 5m before taking a left turn and walking 7m. He then took a final right turn and walked 1m before stopping. How far is Ajay from the starting point ?
1. 8m
2. 7m
3. 6m
4. 5m
5. 9m So distance from starting point is 8 m.
DIRECTIONS for the question 5-7:
Study the following information to answer the given questions:
Eight people are sitting in two parallel rows containing four people each, in such a way that there is an equal distance between adjacent persons. In row 1- A, B, C and D are seated (but not necessarily in the same order) and all of them are facing south. In row 2 - E, F, G and H are seated (but not necessarily in the same order) and all of them are facing north. Therefore, in the given seating arrangement each member seated in a row faces another member of the other row.
G sits second to right of E. The one who faces E sits to the immediate right of C. A faces the immediate neighbour of E. H sits to immediate left of the person who faces D. H does not sit at an extreme end of the line.
5. Who amongst the following faces G?
1. A
2. B
3. C
4. D
5. Cannot be determined

G sits second to right of E i.e. _ E _ G
The one who faces E sits to the immediate right of C i.e.
_ _ C _
_ E _ G
A faces the immediate neighbor of E i.e.
A_C_
_ E _ G
H does not sit at an extreme end of the line i.e.
A _ C _
_ E H G
H sits to immediate left of the person who faces D i.e.
A _CD
F E H G
Pattern is 1st row ABCD
2nd row F E H G
So, G faces D.
6. Which of the following is true regarding B?
1. B sits exactly between C and D
2. D sits second to right of B
3. B sits at an extreme end of the line
4. B is an immediate neighbour of the person who faces F
5. None is true

We have,
G sits second to right of E i.e. _ E _ G
The one who faces E sits to the immediate right of C i.e.
_ _ C _
_ E _ G
A faces the immediate neighbor of E i.e.
A_C_
_ E _ G
H does not sit at an extreme end of the line i.e.
A _ C _
_ E H G
H sits to immediate left of the person who faces D i.e.
A _CD
F E H G
Pattern is 1st row ABCD
2nd row F E H G
Only D option satisfies condition.
7. Four of the following five are alike in a certain way based on the given seating arrangement and thus form a group. Which is the one that does not belong to that group ?
1. E
2. D
3. F
4. G
5. A

We have,
G sits second to right of E i.e. _ E _ G
The one who faces E sits to the immediate right of C i.e.
_ _ C _
_ E _ G
A faces the immediate neighbor of E i.e.
A_C_
_ E _ G
H does not sit at an extreme end of the line i.e.
A _ C _
_ E H G
H sits to immediate left of the person who faces D i.e.
A _CD
F E H G
Pattern is 1st row ABCD
2nd row F E H G
All of them are at extreme positions except E.
So, correct answer is option A.
DIRECTIONS for the questions 8 :
Solve the following question and mark the best possible option.
Give answer (1) if only conclusion I follows.
Give answer (2) if only conclusion II follows.
Give answer (3) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
Give answer (4) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
Give answer (5) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follows.
8. Statements: B < A < C; A> D ≤ E
Conclusions: I. B ≤ E II. C > E

From the given statements, it can be concluded that B < A > D ≤ E. Thus, according to above, either B ≤ E or B > E.
Similarly, according to given statements E ≥ D < A < C, either C = E or C < E or C > E.As none of them is definite the answer will be fourth option.
9. How many such digits are there in the number 3124675, each of which will occupy the same position when rearranged in ascending order as in the number?
1. None
2. One
3. Two
4. Three
5. More than three
