InstructionsDirections : Each of the questions below consists of a question and three statements numbered I, II and III given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

b)Â Only II and either I or III are required to answer the question

c)Â Only II and III

d)Â All I, II and III are required to answer the question

e)Â All I, II and III are not sufficient to answer the question

From statement 1 or statement 2 alone, we cannot determine the position of Bhavna.

Using both the statements,

_ _ _ _ _ _ Sheetal _ Sandeep _ Anita _ _ Bhavna …

So, Bhavna’s position can be determined using both the statements together.

From statement 1 alone: R A N G E is the only possibility

From statement 2 alone: R/E A/G N G/A E/R is the possibility. So, the middle letter can be determined.

So, the question can be answered by using either statement alone.

From statement 1, the positions are as follows:

From statement 2, the positions are as follows:

So, the question can be answered by using statement 2 alone, but not by using statement 1 alone.

Downstream = boat + stream = $\frac{12}{2}$ + stream = 6 km/hr
Upstream =boat – stream =Â $\frac{12}{4}$ – stream Â = 3 km/hr
Solving the above equations we get boat = 4.5 km/hr and stream = 6 – 4.5 = 1.5
Speed of the stream =Â $\frac{1}{3}$rd of that of the boat in still river = 1.5

Length of the train = 240 m
Time taken to cross the pole = 24 seconds
Speed = $\frac{240}{24}$ = 10 m/s

Let x be the average age of students
Let y be the teacher’s age
$\frac{11x + y}{12}$ = 14
$\frac{11x + y}{12}$ = x + 3
Solving the above equations we get x = 11
y = 47

SI in 1 year = 600

for two years = 1200

Sum = 10 x 1200 = 12000

600 = 12000*r*1/100

r = 5%

Amount returned in two years = 12000(1 + $\frac{5}{100}$)2 = 13230

Length of the hypotenuse = 5 cm
Other two sides = 4cm ,3 cm (pythaogrean triples)
Area =Â $\frac{1}{2}$ x base x height =Â $\frac{1}{2}$ x 3 x 4 = 6cm2

Options 2 and 3 provide all the information needed to answer the question.

Using statement I alone: E > B > A

Using statement II alone: C’s rank is 3.

Using statement III alone: D’s rank is 5 and F’s rank is 6.

Using any two of the three statements, we cannot answer the question.

Using all three statements, C = 3rd rank, D = 5th rank, F = 6th rank; E = 1st rank, B = 2nd rank and A = 4th rank

Statetments 1 and 2 are sufficient to answer the question. Hence option 5 is correct as none of the options indicate this.

Suresh took leave on Wednesday doesn’t mean he visited Chennai on that day. Since Suresh’s mother visited him on neither Monday nor Thursday, she could have visited on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. It is given that Suresh visited Chennai the day after his mother’s visit. Since the exact day on which Suresh’s mother visited his house cannot be determined, the day on which Suresh visited Chennai cannot be determined. Thus, we cannot determine the answer exactly even by using all three statements.

From statements I and III, we can determine the code for ‘go’ as ‘ha’. So, I and III are sufficient to answer the question.

Based on information in the paragraph, the person in the highest floor lives on 6 (even number). P, Q and R live in even numbered floors. T lives above R =. So, R is not the answer. Q is not in the top floor. So, P is in the top floor. Information from all three statements is used to arrive at this solution.

Consider statements I and III:

The possibilities with the information given in statement I are A _ S _ E _ and _ A _ S _ E.

Using statement III, the only possibility is A N S W E R.

So, option b) is the correct answer.

The statements 1 and 3 ie. I) Point A is to the west of Point B. Point C is to the north of Point B. Point D is to the south of Point C.

and Â III) Point A is to the west of Point B. Point B is exactly midway between Points A and E. Point F is to the south of Point E. Point D

is to the west of Point F. provide information required to answer the question. They help the candidate identify the direction between

B and D. But statement 2 doesn’t provide any extra information useful to answer the question.

To figure out how “one” is coded in that encryption, we need to identify the codes for every other word in “one of its kind”. That information is available in each of the 3 statements provided. Hence the correct option is (e)

Each of the 3 statements individually statements that all four of them aren’t facing the centre. Hence choice (d) is the correct option.
