DIRECTIONS for questions 1 - 2: The question below has either two or three statements followed by two or three conclusions.
You have to take the given statements to be true and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements, disregarding the commonly known facts.
1. Statement:
All alphabets are numbers, some alphabets are digits
Conclusions:
1. At least some digits are numbers
2. No digit is a number
1. Either conclusion I or II follows
2. Neither conclusion I nor II follows
3. Only conclusion II follows
4. Only conclusion I follow
5. Both conclusions I and II follow
From the given statements, we get the following relation: Therefore,

Conclusion I: At least some digits are numbers is true
Conclusion II: No digit is a number is not true
So the correct option is 4th
2. Statement:
Some wins are losses, All trophies are losses.
Conclusions:
1. All trophies are wins
2. All losses are trophies
1. Either conclusion I or II follows
2. Both conclusions I and II follow
3. Only conclusion II follows
4. Only conclusion I follow
5. Neither conclusion I nor II follows
From the given statements, we get the following relation:
Therefore,

Conclusion I: All trophies are wins is not true.
Conclusion II: All losses are trophies is also not true. Some losses are trophies
So the correct option is E
DIRECTIONS for questions 3 - 5: Solve the following question and mark the best possible option.
If A + B means A is the father of B
If A × B means A is the sister of B
If A $B means A is the wife of B If A % B means A is the mother of B If A ÷ B means A is the son of B 1. What should come in place of the question mark, to establish that J is the brother of T in the expression? J ÷ P % H ? T % L 1. × 2. ÷ 3.$
4. Either ÷ or ×
5. Either + or ÷

From the figure, we can tell that if T is the brother or sister of H, then J will be the brother of T. Hence, symbol x is the correct option.
2. Which among the given expressions indicate that M is the daughter of D?
1. L % R $D + T × M 2. L + R$ D + M × T
3. L% R% D + T ÷ M
4. D + L $R + M × T 5. L$ D ÷ R % M ÷ T
In the expression L + R $D + M x T, we can make the following figure From above it is clear that M is the daughter of D. Hence answer is B option. 3. What should come in place of the question mark, to establish that T is the sister-in-law of Q in the expression? R % T × P ? Q + V 1. + 2. % 3. × 4.$
5. Either \$ or ×

Form the figure, If P is the wife of Q, then T will be the sister-in-law of Q. Hence answer is D option
DIRECTIONS for questions 6 : Solve the following question and mark the best possible option. In a certain code,
‘very large risk associated’ is written as ‘nu ta ro gi’
‘risk is very low’ is written as ‘ gi se nu mi’
‘is that also associated’ is written as ‘ta mi po fu’
‘inherent risk also damaging’ is written as ‘fu nu di yu’
(All the codes are two letter codes only.)
1. What does the code ‘di’ stand for?
1. Either ‘damaging’ or ‘inherent’
2. Inherent
3. Also
4. low
5. risk
‘very large risk associated’ is written as ‘nu ta ro gi’-(1)
‘risk is very low’ is written as ‘ gi se nu mi-----(2)
‘is that also associated’ is written as ‘ta mi po fu’----(3)
‘inherent risk also damaging’ is written as ‘fu nu di yu’---(4)
From statements 1 and 3, we have ‘associated’ as the common word and the common code is ‘ta’
From statements 3 and 4, we have ‘also’ as the common word and the common code is ‘fu’
From statements 2 and 4, we have ‘risk’ as the common word and the common code is ‘nu’
From statements 2 and 3, we have ‘is’ as the common word and the common code is ‘mi’
From statements 1 and 2, we can conclude that the code of ‘very’ is ‘gi’
Therefore, from statement 1, the code of ‘large’ will be ‘ro’
Similarly, from statement 2, the code of ‘low’ is ‘se’ and from statement 3, the code of ‘that’ is ‘po’
 Word Code very gi risk nu is mi also fu low se large row that po associated ta inherent d/yu damaging d/yu
‘di’ can either be ‘damaging’ or ‘inherent’. Hence option A.
DIRECTIONS for questions 7 : Solve the following question and mark the best possible option.
Point A is 30m north of point B
Point C is 25m east of point B
Point D is 10m north of point C
Point E is 10m west of point D
1. How far is point E from point A ?
1. 25m
2. 20m
3. 15m
4. 28m
5. 18m

AE2 = 152 + 202;
AE2 = 625;
AE = 25
DIRECTIONS for questions 8 : The question below consist of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it.
You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and mark
1. How many students are there in the class?
1. There are more than 20 but less than 27 students in the class.
2. There are more than 24 but less than 31 students in the class. the number of students in the class can be divided into groups such that each group contains 5 students
1. The data in both the Statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question
2. The data neither in Statement I nor in Statement II are sufficient to answer the question
3. The data either in Statement I alone or in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
4. The data in Statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question
5. The data in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question
From statement I, the no of students can be 21,22,23,24,25 or 26. So no certain answer is obtained.
From statement II, the no of students can be either 25 or 30. So again no unique answer is obtained.
On combining the statements, we get 25 as the unique answer.
Therefore, the data in both the Statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question. Hence option A.
DIRECTIONS for questions 9 and 10: Solve the following question and mark the best possible option.
1. Statement:
K > I > T > E; O < R < K
Conclusions:
1. R < E
2. O < T
1. Neither conclusion I nor II follows
2. Both conclusions I and II follows
3. Only conclusion II follows
4. Either conclusion I or II follows
5. Only conclusion I follows
Statement: K > I > T > E; O < R < K
Conclusion I: R < E is false because no relationship can be established between R & E.
Conclusion II: O < T is also false because no relationship can be established between O & T.
Thus, neither conclusion I nor II follows. Hence option A.
2. Statement:
C < L < O = U = D > S > Y
Conclusions:
1. O > Y
2. C < D
1. Neither conclusion I nor II follows
2. Both conclusions I and II follows
3. Only conclusion I follows
4. Only conclusion II follows
5. Either conclusion I or II follows
