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)**

**14) Answer (A)**

**15) Answer (C)**

Lowest number = 216.

Third digit of 216 → 6

Highest number = 964

First digit of 964 → 9.

Required product = 6*9 = 54

**16) Answer (D)**

Second lowest number of the given numbers = 323

Sum of squares of 3, 2, 3 $= 3^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 = 9+4+9 = 22$

**17) Answer (B)**

From statement 1, 2, and 7 we can gather the following information:

Now, as per statement 2 Tanya will be interviewed either on Tuesday or Thursday and Sachin will be interviewed on either Saturday or Sunday.

If Tanya is interviewed on Thursday and Sachin is interviewed on Saturday then Gayatri must be interviewed on Sunday since statement 5 says at least a one day gap is required between Mahima and Gayatri’s interview. So, Abhinav will have to be interviewed on Tuesday. [Case 1]

Similarly, If Tanya is interviewed on Thursday and Sachin is interviewed on Sunday then Gayatri must be interviewed on Saturday since statement 5 says at least a one day gap is required between Mahima and Gayatri’s interview. However, Gayatri is asked questions on Indian Bankruptcy Code (IBC) (from statement 6) while the person interviewed on Saturday is asked admin law (statement 1) so this case is not possible.

If Tanya is interviewed on Tuesday and Sachin on Sunday then Gayatri will have to be interviewed on Thursday since she is asked about IBC and not admin law.

From statement 4 we know that the ones wearing blazers must be on consecutive days apart from the weekend. Also, Digivijay does not wear a blazer (statement 1) so the ones wearing a blazer can either be on Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday. From statement 3 we know that the ones carrying files are interviewed before Thursday, so on any two of the days among Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Even if one of the days is Wednesday, at least one person must carry a file on Monday and Tuesday. So, the ones wearing a blazer must be on Thursday and Friday.

In Case 1, upon placing the information we get the following:

However, as per statement 8, this is not possible. So, this case can be eliminated.

Similarly we can eliminate other cases. The only possible way, all the conditions are followed is:

So, Option B is correct.

**18) Answer (D)**

From statement 1, 2, and 7 we can gather the following information:

Now, as per statement 2 Tanya will be interviewed either on Tuesday or Thursday and Sachin will be interviewed on either Saturday or Sunday.

If Tanya is interviewed on Thursday and Sachin is interviewed on Saturday then Gayatri must be interviewed on Sunday since statement 5 says at least a one day gap is required between Mahima and Gayatri’s interview. So, Abhinav will have to be interviewed on Tuesday. [Case 1]

In Case 1, upon placing the information we get the following:

However, as per statement 8, this is not possible. So, this case can be eliminated.

Similarly we can eliminate other cases. The only possible way, all the conditions are followed is:

Option D is correct.

**19) Answer (C)**

From the diagram, we can see that All crows can be pigeons and All bats can be black.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**20) Answer (E)**

From the diagram, we can see that all batsmen being all rounder is a possibility and some wicket keepers can be all rounders.

Hence, option E is the correct answer.
