 # Aspiring-Minds Reasoning Questions

DIRECTIONS for question 1 to 3: Read the given information carefully and answer the given question.
Each of the six friends, I, J, K, L, M and N working in an office handles different number of projects in a month. I handled the second lowest number of projects. K handles more projects than L and M but less than J. J did not handle the maximum number of projects. M did not handle the minimum number of projects. The one who handle the third highest number of projects handled 31 projects. L handled 12 projects.
1. How many projects did J possibly handle?
1. 28
2. 10
3. 36
4. 9
5. 15
N > J > K > M > I > L
K=31
L=12
From the options, J Possibly handles only 36. Because K handled 31 projects so that J must be greater than 31. So answer is 36.
2. If the number of projects handled by I + K is 4 times the number of projects handled by L, how many projects were handled by I?
1. 22
2. 17
3. 19
4. 9
5. 32
N > J > K > M > I > L
K=31
L=12
Given that I+K=4*L
So that, I+31=48,
I=17.
3. Which of the following is true regarding the number of projects handled by N?
1. No one handles more projects than N.
2. Only J handled more number of projects than N
3. N possibly handled 24 projects,
4. N handled more number of projects than only three people
5. The difference between projects handled by N and L is less than 18.
N > J > K > M > I > L
K=31
L=12
From the options, we conclude that No one handles more projects than N is correct.
DIRECTIONS for the questions 4 -6: Study the following information and answer the given question.
L is the mother of J. J is the only daughter of R. R is the son of D. D is the wife of K. K is the father of T. T is the wife of Y.
