Question 19: Study the following information carefully and answer the question which follows : Farmers should use hydroponics for farming. Hydroponics is growing plants in liquid nutrient solution.

from the above statements following venn can be drawn

we can see from the above venn that no conclusion is true

from the above statements the following venn can be drawn

and hence we can say that both the given conclusions are true

Consider the given statements:
I > A ≥ N ≥ T; C ≤ I ≤ E

I is greater than A and E is greater than or equal to I. Hence, E is definitely greater than A. Hence, I is not definitely true. II is also not defnitely not true. Hence, option E is the correct answer.

We cannot get any direct relationship between S and I or L and D. Hence, neither of the two conclusions follows.

Numbers : 567 284 696 865 738

If ‘1’ is added to the last digit, then numbers : 568 , 285 , 697 , 866 , 739

Now, order of digits is reversed, = 865 , 582 , 796 , 668 , 937

After arranging in ascending order = 582 , 668 , 796 , 865 , 937

Thus, 4th from left = $865\equiv567$

=> Ans – (A)

Word – ‘PHYSICAL’

There are 2 pairs of letters which have as many letters between them in the word as they have between them in the English alphabetical series

= (P,S) , (I,L)

=> Ans – (C)

Arrange all the vowels and then consonants from left.

IOUFHLRS

Now all the vowels are replaced with previous letters and all the consonants are replaced by next letter.

HNTGIMST

Now third letter from right is M.

Hence, C is the correct answer.

6’s which are immediately preceded by 1 or 5 and immediately by 3 or 9 = (1/5) (6) (3/9)

2 6 3 7 5 6 4 2 9 6 1 3 4 1 6 3 9 1 5 6 9 2 3 1 6 5 4 3 2 1 9 6 7 1 6 3

Thus, there are three such 6’s.

=> Ans – (D)

All positions in this question will be from left end.

Total students in the row = 40

Vikas’s position = 26

Since, Kailash was shifted 10 places to the left of Vikas => Kailash position = 16

Three boys were sitting between Kailash and Sameer => Sameer’s position = 12 or 20

Sameer was 10 places to the right of Raman.

=> Raman’s position = 2 or 10

Thus, not sufficient data is given.

NOTE :- Position from front + Position from bottom = Total students + 1

Total no. of boys = 20

D’s position from front = 14th

F’s position from bottom = 9th

=> F’s position from front = (20+1)-9 = 12th

Since, D is at 14th and F is at 12th position, => there is only 1 boy between D & F.

Ans – (E)

As mentioned, ‘food was cooked and stored in the open space for almost 12 hours earlier’. Now, this may be the cause of food-poisoning as given in the second option.

=> Ans – (B)

The given statement indicates that parents who do not give proper attention to their children have affected the child’s performance.

The first, second and last options supports the above statement, the fourth statement is the consequence of above statement, but the third statement weakens the above argument as it states that a child can improve with good adjustment with his/her friends.

=> Ans – (C)

Meaningful English words that can be formed from CFAE :

FACE & CAFE

Thus, only 2 words can be formed.

Letters = M,A,S,T,E

2 meaningful words can be formed = Teams, Steam

=> Ans – (C)

Violin, Harp, Guitar, Sitar are all string based musical instruments while flute is air based musical instrument.

And the option is D.

Nest does not belong to the group.
All others are materials used by birds to make the nest.
Hence, the correct answer is option is D.

Number – 4671358

1st, 4th and 7th digits = 4, 1, 8

Now, if a number should be a perfect square of an odd number, then the number should also be odd, i.e. end with ‘1’ in this case.

Numbers ending with 1 = 481, 841

Now, $841=(29)^2$ and 481 is not a perfect square number.

Digit in 10th place = 2

=> Ans – (A)

Number – 38564927

Arranging all even digits in ascend order = 24683597

Now, arranging all odd digits in ascend order = 24683579

4th digit from right end = 3

=> Ans – (B)

The given statement supports the use of hydroponics among farmers.

The first option definitely weakens the statement as it mentions the high cost of hydroponics. Similarly, the second option also states the disease caused by the water used in hydroponics, it also weakens the given statement.

The fourth option mentions about the loss of crop due to this method and the final option talks about its limitations, thus both weakening the statement.

But the third option gives a choice for the farmers to use hydroponics and thus does not weaken the given statement.

=> Ans – (C)
