Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 1

Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
Each of the six persons namely A, B, C, D, E and F took one ball from a box containing 300 balls of six different colours Blue, Black, Red, White, Green and Yellow. Also, the number of balls of each colour is the same. Following is the detail of three statements made by each of the persons. Exactly one of the statements made by each person is true and only one of the statements made about B is correct. Also, balls of two particular colours were not taken by any of the persons.

(2012)

Q. What is the colour of the ball taken by A?

Detailed Solution for Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 1

Taking the statements made by C, we can say that one of the two statements I and II must be true, which means that statement III is definitely false.
So,  A took a blue ball.

Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 2

Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
Each of the six persons namely A, B, C, D, E and F took one ball from a box containing 300 balls of six different colours Blue, Black, Red, White, Green and Yellow. Also, the number of balls of each colour is the same. Following is the detail of three statements made by each of the persons. Exactly one of the statements made by each person is true and only one of the statements made about B is correct. Also, balls of two particular colours were not taken by any of the persons.

(2012)

Q. What is the colour of the ball taken by C?

Detailed Solution for Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 2

Taking the statements made by C, we can say that one of the two statements I and II must be true, which means that statement III is definitely false.
Taking the statements made by E and A: Both statements II and III by E state that B took a blue ball and hence both are false as only one statement made on B is true. So statement I of both A and E are correct.
So, F took a red ball and B took a green ball.
Hence statement II by A was false.
So, C took a red ball.

Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 3

Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
Each of the six persons namely A, B, C, D, E and F took one ball from a box containing 300 balls of six different colours Blue, Black, Red, White, Green and Yellow. Also, the number of balls of each colour is the same. Following is the detail of three statements made by each of the persons. Exactly one of the statements made by each person is true and only one of the statements made about B is correct. Also, balls of two particular colours were not taken by any of the persons.

(2012)

Q. For how many of the mentioned persons, the exact colour of the balls taken by them can be determined?

Detailed Solution for Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 3

Considering the statements made by C , we can conclude that one of the two statements I and II must be true, which means that statement III is definitely false.
Considering the statements made by B: We know that statement I is definitely false as A took a blue ball. Also, statement III is false.
So, statement II made by B is true.
Considering the statements made by F: We already know that A took a blue ball and C took a green ball.
Hence, both the statements I and II are false and therefore statement III made by F is true.
So, neither D took a yellow ball nor did he took a red ball.
Consider the statements made by D: We already know that statement II is false as F took a red ball.
So, one of the statements I and III is true.
It is also given that balls of two different colours were not taken by any of the mentioned persons.
Case I: E took a yellow ball D must have taken a blue ball and balls of white and black colour are not taken by any of the mentioned persons.
Case II: D took a green ball E could have taken either a white or a black ball.
For four persons viz.A, F, C and B the exact color of the balls taken by them can be determined.

Test: Analytical Reasoning - 4 - Question 4

Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
Eight teams participate in the Indian Soccer League (ISL) in which they play one another exactly once. The winner gets three points while the loser gets no points from a match. Both the teams get one point each if the match results in a draw. It is known that not more than 3 matches resulted in a draw in the tournament. The teams are ranked in the following manner before the tournament starts:

The new ranks of the eight teams would be decided based on their performance in the ISL, with the team scoring the maximum points ranked 1 and so on. If two or more teams score equal points at the end of the tournament, their final ranks would be decided based on the total number of goals scored in the tournament, with more goals giving a team better rank.
