Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 22 The marriage once performed is valid. Therefore, Mahesh here in this case cannot take the excuse of marriage being void.He has to pay for the maintenance.

SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 28

The ratio of the present ages of Seema and Mohan is 2 : 5 and of Farah and Seema is 6 : 2. After 5 years, the ratio of the ages of Seema and Farah will be 3 : 7. What is the present age of Mohan?

Conclusion (III) follows because unless jobs were available, opting for them would be absurd.

SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 30

The ratio of boys to girls in a class is 4 : 3. 30% of girls are good in Mathematics, whereas 60% of boys are poor in Mathematics. What % of boys are good in Mathematics out of the total students?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 32 Let the number of boys = 4x

Number of girls = 3x

Number of girls good in Mathematics = 30% of 3x = 0.9x

Number of boys good in Mathematics = 40% of 4x = 1.6x

Total number of students = 7x

% of boys who are good in Mathematics out of all the students = (1.6x/7x) x 100 = 22.86%

SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 34

Directions: In making decisions about important questions, it is desirable to be able to distinguish between `strong` arguments and `weak` arguments. `Strong` arguments are those which are both important and directly related to the question. `Weak` arguments are those which are of minor importance, and they are directly related to the question 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 given arguments is/are `strong` argument(s).

Question: Should the public sector undertakings be allowed to adopt hire-and-fire policy?

Arguments:

I. Yes, this will help the public sector undertakings to get rid of non-performing employees and will also help to reward the performing employees.

II. No, the management may not be able to implement the policy in an unbiased manner and the employees will suffer due to the high-handedness of the management.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 34 Argument I is strong because it will enhance efficiency of public sector undertakings. Argument II is strong as this policy is susceptible to corruption and high-handedness. Because both the arguments, though strong, are contrasting to each other, only one of them can be picked at a time.
SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 35

Directions: In the following question, a statement is followed by assumptions. An assumption is something supposed or taken for granted. Consider the statement and the following assumptions, and choose the correct option.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 36 Speed of train 1 = 200/10 = 20 m/s

Speed of train 2 = 200/15 = 13.33 m/s

The trains travel in opposite directions.

Therefore, relative speed = 20 + 13.33 = 33.33 m/s

Now, time taken by the trains to cross each other =

SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 37

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the question given after it.

Some statements are routinely issued by the government of the day and they become news. They become news not necessarily because they are newsworthy, but because they are headlined by the newspapers. Let us examine some of these statements. No one will be allowed to take law into his own hands; the corrupt will be dealt with firmly; indiscipline will not be tolerated whether it is in a campus or in a political outfit; India will not compromise on its principles and so on and so forth. These have been spoken on innumerable occasions and have been heard on umpteen occasions and will continue to be spoken and heard. They have become so routinely stale that they have ceased to convey any meaning to anyone. These statements are necessary evils of non-governance or ill-governance. Yet they make news and we have the mortification of having to encounter them every morning in bold prints. What do they actually mean when they say that they will not allow anyone to take law into his own hands? Law, in its various forms, is not only taken into hands, but is also wantonly disregarded. This is not only tolerated, but is often given respectability too. If it were not so, we would not have been seeing the mushrooming of people with dubious character on the ascendancy right in our midst. Today, words speak, actions do not.

Q. According to the passage, why is the author mortified by what he encounters every morning in bold prints?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 37 The gap between what is said by the politicians and what they do makes the statements in the newspaper a daily anguish for the author.
SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 38

SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 39

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the question given after it.

Some statements are routinely issued by the government of the day and they become news. They become news not necessarily because they are newsworthy, but because they are headlined by the newspapers. Let us examine some of these statements. No one will be allowed to take law into his own hands; the corrupt will be dealt with firmly; indiscipline will not be tolerated whether it is in a campus or in a political outfit; India will not compromise on its principles and so on and so forth. These have been spoken on innumerable occasions and have been heard on umpteen occasions and will continue to be spoken and heard. They have become so routinely stale that they have ceased to convey any meaning to anyone. These statements are necessary evils of non-governance or ill-governance. Yet they make news and we have the mortification of having to encounter them every morning in bold prints. What do they actually mean when they say that they will not allow anyone to take law into his own hands? Law, in its various forms, is not only taken into hands, but is also wantonly disregarded. This is not only tolerated, but is often given respectability too.

SLAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 41

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the question given after it.

India's national flower, the lotus, is known by various names such as the Indian Lotus, Sacred Lotus, Bean of India or simply the lotus. In India, it is associated with several Hindu mythological deities such as Brahma, Saraswati and Lakshmi and is used for many religious purposes. Botanically speaking, it is an aquatic flowering plant which flowers for one or more years. It is often mistaken for a water lily which has a completely different structure. The water lily is majorly white in colour with slight hues of other colours too.

Another interesting fact about this splendid flower is that the common Egyptian ''white'' lotus is actually a water lily. The white lotus opens when the sun sets, while the blue water lily opens in the morning. The white lotus is a plant growing in wetland areas with water of two meters in depth which blooms in the night. The lotus flower symbolises awakening to the spiritual reality in Hinduism.

One thing which is worth noting about the lotus flower is that it is unstained even though it grows in the mud, which has become a metaphor for many Indians who battle many hardships and adverse circumstances to attain success and prosperity.

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the question given after it.

An earthquake is a tremor of high intensity in the earth's surface caused by the action of the end-genetic forces of the earth. It causes immense damage to life and property of the region if its intensity is measured as being above 7 on the Richter scale. Studies have shown that over 80% of our country's area comes under the moderate and high seismic zones.

In the past, a number of devastating earthquakes have occurred. Earthquakes measuring more than 7 on Richter scale in the sea bed may produce high sea waves called tsunamis. Such tsunamis were caused due to the earthquake near Sumatra coast on 26th December, 2004, which led to a loss of more than 5 lakh people in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India. In India, heavy damage to life and property was caused in Andaman-Nicobar islands and Tamil Nadu coast. Severity of the tsunamis was a little minimised along the coasts having wider continental shelves and luxuriant growth of mangrove forests. Since Andaman area lies in the high seismic zone, the recurrence of tsunamis cannot be ruled out if there is a high-intensity earthquake. The need is early warning system, planting of mangroves and building of protection walls.
