In making decisions about important questions, it is desirable to be able to distinguish between ‘strong’ arguments and ‘weak’ arguments so far as they relate to the question. ‘Strong’ arguments are those which are both important and directly related to the questions. ‘Weak’ arguments are those which are of minor importance and also may not be directly related to the questions or may be related to a trivial aspect of the question. The question below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.

Give answer a: if only argument I is strong

Give answer b: if only argument II is strong

Give answer c: if either I or II is strong.

Give answer d: if neither I nor II strong.

Give answer e: if both I and II are strong.

General Knowledge Questions & Answers PDF

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

The logic followed here is (n + 9). Hence, the code for GAFT will be,

G + 9 = P, A + 9 =J, F + 9 = O, T + 9 = C.

Similarly, the code for WORS is,

W + 9 = F, O + 9 = X, R + 9 = A, S + 9 = B.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**2) Answer (C)**

$84 = 8^2 – 4^2 = 64 – 16 = 48$

Using the same logic,

$73 = 7^2 – 3^2 = 49 – 9 = 40$.

Therefore, option C is the right answer.

**3) Answer (A)**

By putting % in the blank,

P & Q → P is husband of Q

Q % R → Q is daughter of R

R & S → R is husband of S

S @ T → s is sister of T.

Here, P is husband of Q who is niece of T.

Hence, P is son-in-law of T.

**4) Answer (C)**

By checking Option C,

A & B → A is husband of B

B % C → B is daughter of C

C # D → C is father of D

D @ E → D is sister of E

E % F → E is daughter of F

Here, E is sister of B who is A’s wife.

Hence, E is sister-in-law of A.

**5) Answer (C)**

Let us assign H a corner and work our way from there. The person sitting opposite to H is from New Delhi. This means that H cannot be from a metro. The person sitting third to the right of A who is from Chennai, is from New Delhi which means that the person sitting third to the right of the person from New Delhi is A from Chennai. Now the arrangement will look like this :

H is from Jaipur and person sitting third to the left of H is from Indore. G sits opposite to the person from Indore. The person from Hyderabad is second to the right of G. Now the arrangement will look like this :

B from Chandigarh and F from Kolkata face each other which means that they must sit on the corners. This means that G is from Mumbai as one out of pair of people sitting opposite to each other is from a metro. We also know that the person from Indore is C. Since D faces the table, we know that D is sitting on one of the corners. Since only one corner is left, we know that D is the person from New Delhi. This also means that the person from Hyderabad is E. Now the arrangement will look like this :

From the figure, we can see that from the given options, G the person from Mumbai does not face the table.

**6) Answer (B)**

Let us assign H a corner and work our way from there. The person sitting opposite to H is from New Delhi. This means that H cannot be from a metro. The person sitting third to the right of A who is from Chennai, is from New Delhi which means that the person sitting third to the right of the person from New Delhi is A from Chennai. Now the arrangement will look like this :

H is from Jaipur and person sitting third to the left of H is from Indore. G sits opposite to the person from Indore. The person from Hyderabad is second to the right of G. Now the arrangement will look like this :

B from Chandigarh and F from Kolkata face each other which means that they must sit on the corners. This means that G is from Mumbai as one out of pair of people sitting opposite to each other is from a metro. We also know that the person from Indore is C. Since D faces the table, we know that D is sitting on one of the corners. Since only one corner is left, we know that D is the person from New Delhi. This also means that the person from Hyderabad is E. Now the arrangement will look like this :

From the figure, A is from Chennai who faces away from the table. Thus, H from Jaipur is left of A.

**7) Answer (C)**

The given statements can be combined and expressed as $ C = A > B < D \leq E = F$.

$F \leq C$ can be written as $ A \geq E$.

The 2 conclusions, state that $ A < E $ or $ A \geq C$.

One among these 2 conclusions must definitely follow.

Therefore, either conclusion I or conclusion II follows. Therefore, option C is the right answer.

**8) Answer (E)**

The given statements can be combined as $R = S < T > Q \geq P$.

$T$ is greater than $Q$. Therefore, $T$ is definitely greater than $P$. Conclusion I is false since it states that $T \geq P$.

No relationship can be established between $R$ and $Q$ since there is a change in the sign of the inequality. Therefore, conclusion II does not follow.

Neither of the conclusions follow. Therefore, option E is the right answer.

**9) Answer (B)**

18 can be written as 16+0+0+2+0 = $\blacktriangle\circ\circ\blacktriangle\circ$

**10) Answer (D)**

$\blacktriangle \blacktriangle\blacktriangle\circ$ = 8+4+2+0 = 14

**11) Answer (D)**

The logic can be explained as follows.

First, it is checked whether the input is less than 0. If it is not, then we increment ‘n’ by 3 and recheck whether the given number is less than or equal to ‘n’. The process is repeated till ‘n’ becomes equal to or greater than the input.

Finally, the input is subtracted from ‘n’. Thus, we get the number that must be added to make the given number divisible by 3.

Hence, option D is the right answer.

**12) Answer (E)**

The logic can be explained as follows.

First, it is checked whether the input is less than 0. If it is not, then we increment ‘n’ by 3 and recheck whether the given number is less than or equal to ‘n’. The process is repeated till ‘n’ becomes equal to or greater than the input.

Finally, the input is subtracted from ‘n’. Thus, we get the number that must be added to make the given number divisible by 3.

So, when k=5, n=6. If n+k is displayed as the output, then 5+6 = 11 will be the output.

**13) Answer (A)**

From I, B is younger only to one person. B’s age is the average of C and D. D is the eldest as C is neither the youngest nor the eldest.

II – There are as many people as old as E as there are younger to him. The age of B is twice that of E.

Nothing can be concluded from II.

**14) Answer (B)**

From II,

We can conclude that only such possibility is that R lives on 5 and T on 3.

Thus, option B is the correct answer.

**15) Answer (A)**

Once the trails are over, the best availability of material managerial and other resources is necessary to maintain production schedule. Hence III follows.

As mentioned in the statement, ‘model M is its first product’, so it is necessary to finalise the network of dealers and all matters regarding the sale of the product. Hence I follows. II has no connection with the statement.

Thus, only I and III follow.

=> Ans – (A)

**16) Answer (D)**

**17) Answer (B)**

The below diagram can be drawn using given statements.

Shortest distance between his home and his office $= \sqrt{28^2 + 45^2} = \sqrt{784+2025} = \sqrt{2809} = 53$ metres

**18) Answer (B)**

The below diagram can be drawn using given statements.

Shortest distance between his home and his office $= \sqrt{12^2 + 35^2} = \sqrt{144+1225} = \sqrt{1369} = 37$ metres
