As the situation demands it, using the veto and going ahead with the plan is the best option. Option c comes next but it may prove to be time consuming whereas the matter at hand is urgent. Going with the option a is next but it would show that you give up too easily. Option d is the worst choice as it will portray you as a quitter.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 32

You have been nominated the head of a committee that is incharge of setting up roads in a remote village area. This road will give the villagers connectivity to the closest town and aid transport of goods and services. However you notice that the local traders who fear competition from outsiders oppose this and threaten your family and you using the force of some local goons. You will

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 32

A crisis situation like this demands for immediate action. Since you are being threatened, the immediate action should be to report the matter to the local police and let the law take its course. Warning the goons would only worsen matters. Trying to convince the traders would be the next best choice as this would help them to see the bigger picture and long term benefits. Also, trying to get yourself removed from the Committee is incorrect and cowardly as it your duty to ensure that the roads are built in the village.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 33

Your subordinate does not share a very cordial relation with you. He/she has made an inadvertent mistake related to work, which has affected your work as well. Your superior has questioned you about this. You will​

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 33

Option c is the best choice as you are responsible for your subordinate and this action will not only pacify your superior but also ensure him/her that this kind of mistake will not happen in the future. Option b is the next best choice but taking the blame on yourself may only embolden your subordinate to make more such mistakes in the future. Option a comes next. However, pinning the blame on him/her just because he/she does not share a cordial relation with you will be unprofessional. Option d does not solve the problem of answering the query that has been made by your superior.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 34

You got a 2 month internship in the company of your choice and if you do well the company will offer you a job at the end of 2 months. Your boss has given you a project with a deadline to complete it in a month and has promised to provide 2 people for completing the project on time. Two weeks have passed and rather than giving you any more people to help with the project your boss keeps giving you other short term assignments to finish. Also, he/she is pressurizing you and saying that it seems unlikely that you will get the job if you do not complete the project within the given deadline. You will  

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 34

Since you had been promised help at the time of taking up the project, it is only fair that you should remind your supervisor of the same. Moreover, talking about the extra work that has been coming your way is also a valid point to ask for more help. Such a course of action would put your point of view across and at the same time would bring the expectations of your boss in line with the ground reality. Option d is the next best option. Since this is a short term internship and because you really want this job in your dream company you would compromise by working overtime to complete the task.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 35

You are the District Magistrate. There has been an incident in the government hospital. A mob went on a rampage in the hospital after a child admitted with head injuries died allegedly due to the negligence of the Medical Officer on duty. Now the medical officers have complained to you saying that it is impossible to work in such a threatening environment. You will   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 35

Assuring the locals that a proper investigation of the case will take place will help in pacifying them. Hence, option d is the best course of action. Since the medical officers are also agitated and are refusing the allegation, assuring them that the matter will be thoroughly investigated is the next best option. You cannot reprimand the medical officer as the death due to his negligence is the allegation at the moment. Thus, option b is negated. The medical officer's apology is welcome but it will not compensate their loss in anyway. Hence option c is also negated.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 36

You have just found that one of your colleagues has been using his official position to secretly demand gifts and favors from the vendors who supply materials to your organization, with the promise to finalize the contract in their favor. Given this situation you will,  

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 36

The best course would be to approach the Ethics Committee. Any proceedings of the committee would be part of official record and the committee would also have the authority to ensure compliance would also have the authority to ensure compliance with its decision. Moreover, since there is a clear company policy regarding such behaviour, you should follow the method prescribed in the policy for dealing with such a situation. The next best option would be to speak to your colleague directly. Ignoring the matter would not be in your interest of your organization. Similarly contacting the vendors would not deal with the root of the problem since the vendors are only responding to the other made by your colleagues in order to secure their own business.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 37

You have recently joined a cross functional team wherein you are supposed to work with an individual of another team with whom you are not on good terms. You would   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 37

Being a part of the team and maintaining as much contact as is necessary for getting the work done is the best choice, which is option d. Option a is the next best option available. It shows your honesty and willing to take your boss into confidence rather than going ahead and facing problems later on. Threatening the other person to withdraw his name would be an unprofessional conduct. Also, being part of the team to seek an opportunity for revenge is not the correct approach as it would strain your relations with the said individual further and hamper your work.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 38

You are working as an HR manager in an educational organization. The company is facing a financial crunch and as a consequence there are consistent salary disbursement delays. The training staff at one of the centers is highly agitated and refuses to take classes. You will  

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 38

A situation such as this, requires employees' support and cooperation. The best possible option is to keep things transparent so as to gain the employees' trust and commitment towards the organization. Hence option d is the best choice. Option a is the next best course of action as it clarifies to the employees that they are not alone in facing this problem and appeals to the sense of community and belonging with the others in the organization. Putting pressure on the finance department will not help resolve the issue because the company has no money in the first place. Moreover, releasing salaries for only one center can worsen the situation at other centers. Threatening the staff will aggravate the situation and not solve it as the company is at fault and not the employees. Thus options b and c are negated.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 39

You are a sessions judge at a district court where corruption is rampant. You have come across a case wherein an influential person has been accused of murder of a dalit. This has fired up the sentiments of the general public. However, a close relative of the accused has approached you and offered you a bribe in order to exonerate the accused. You will   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 39

Option b is the best option as it is necessary that the action be initiated against the man for offering you bribe and the ongoing enquiry will help ascertain the truth. Option d is the second best option as you can try and expedite the inquiry in an attempt to ensure justice for the victim's family. Option c is not correct as you should not approach a higher judge regarding this matter, as it would mean that you could not handle the situation on your own. Option a is not feasible as it is unethical of you to pass a judgement punishing the accused for the murder without giving him a fair trial.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 40

Your subordinate has been working for a month on an important presentation for a client, involving large number of facts and figures. The report has to be presented tomorrow morning in a meeting with the client. Due to a personal tragedy in his family, your subordinate has taken an unplanned leave from the office. Only your subordinate has the access to the presentation and you are unable to reach him through phone or mail. You will   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 40

Going ahead with the meeting without the presentation may result in a bad image in front of the client or worse a loss of the client. Also, preparing the presentation all by yourself, that too in a day's time, is not a plausible option. The presentation took a month to prepare as it dealt with various facts and figures and it would be impossible to replace it with a presentation prepared in a day. Asking the client for an extension by citing the actual reason is the best course of action as it is a genuine case and the client will understand as such a tragedy is out of everyone's control. Option c is the next best course as it enables you to get the said presentation and at the same time not pressure your subordinate at a time of personal tragedy.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 41

From II, we know that after walking, Sunny shall face towards left of Dinesh facing South i.e. East and a person walking southwards shall face East on turning to 'his left.

Thus, Sunny is facing the South.

Now, Divya's grandfather's only child is Divya's parent. So, from II, we conclude that Shaloo and Divya are daughters of the same parents i.e. Divya is Shaloo's sister.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 45

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 47

You have been appointed as the Chief Secretary in a state where a Nuclear Plant has been proposed. People vehemently opposed this project because not much has been done by the government for the victims of nuclear accidents in the past. Now, the onus lies on you to smoothly set up the Nuclear plant as it will help fulfill the urgent energy need of the country. You will-  

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 47

Option b is the best way to go ahead as it will ally the apprehensions of the locals and pacify them.

Option c is the next best option as educating the people in the area and clarifying their misconceptions regarding the nuclear power plants will help to ensure that such protests do not recur in the future. But it will take a lot of time, so next best to option b. Option d is incorrect as you cannot ask the government to scrap the project just because it is potentially dangerous for the local people, overlooking the fact that it will benefit many more people by fulfilling the energy needs of the country. Option a is incorrect as using the force to clamp down the protests will be inappropriate as the protesters are not violent.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 48

You are a director in the Land Revenue Department and responsible for probing illegal land deals. It has come to your notice through media reports that an influential politician's relative is connected with such an illegal deal. This has created widespread furore among the general public. You will   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 48

Option c is the best choice as initiating an inquiry is the procedural way to deal with the case. Option b is the next best choice and could be in a way be part of the inquiry mentioned in option c. Moreover, it also prevents the possible tampering of evidence by the accused but it would require a search warrant for raiding the place and this will take you some time to obtain, hence, this cannot be done immediately. Option a is incorrect as you are not a police officer and arresting the person merely based on the media reports will be inappropriate. Options d is incorrect as this would mean that you are trying to shun the responsibility at hand and compromising on your ethics.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 49

You head the commercial aviation arm of the government, which is not doing well financially. The reason for this is the laid back attitude of the employees of the company. The employees hardly bother about providing the services to the customer. You have been asked to turn around the organization and make it possible. You will-   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 49

The actual problem in this situation is the laidback attitude of the employees. Only bringing a change in the attitude of the employees can solve this problem and option a aptly caters to this need in the long term and hence is the best option. Option b is the next best option as even though it cannot be considered a long term solution it will communicate to the employees your resolve to fix matters. Option d is not correct as it is impracticable of you to ask the government to cancel the license of other aviation companies for no fault of theirs. Option c is incorrect as any financial help will not help in the turn around of the organization until the employees have the right attitude to run the organization.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 50

You are a member of a Women's Rights Group campaigning against the practice of dowry. It has come to your notice that, at a certain wedding, the groom's family has demanded a huge dowry. You would  

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 50

Since the practice of asking for dowry is illegal, on getting to hear of such a demand it is incumbent on you to report the matter to the police. Thus option b is the best choice. The next best course for you would be to inform the District Magistrate of your district so that steps can be taken to institutionalize a preventive mechanism to deter such an event from happening in the future.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 51

You had rented out a tenement to a group of five labourers who claimed to be extremely poor and wanted a discount on the rent. You agreed to rent them the place for a very low amount keeping in mind their impoverished condition.

One day you found that the tenement is vacated and theses labourers are nowhere to be found and the rent for several months was due on them. You will   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 51

Option c is the best choice as for the labourers to deceive you in such a manner and leave without paying the money they owe you, is tantamount to theft and you should definitely inform the police.

Option a is incorrect as it would mean that you let yourself be wronged without taking any steps to rectify the situation. Option d is incorrect as it does not solve the problem at hand in any way.

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 52

Option b is the best choice as it is your duty to bring the matter to the attention to the authorities. Option d is the next best choice since, if for some reason, you are unable to escalate the matter to higher authorities, it would be best to bring the matter to light by taking recourse to the media.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 53

You think that you are quite competent in your work and your boss keeps on saying that you have a good potential. However, your boss promotes other colleagues of yours whom you think are worse off as compared to you in terms of competency. You will​   

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 53

Option b is the best choice as it is possible that you may be wrong in thinking that you are quite competent in your work. A self assessment and comparison may make you identity your weak areas and improve on them. Option a is the next best choices if your boss says that you have a good potential then you can ask your boss whether he is considering things other than merit to promote people. However this should only be done once you make a comparative analysis of yourself vis a vis other candidates who have been promoted. Option c is unethical s it amounts to use illegal means to get you promoted. Option d is incorrect as there is no need to go to the court for this trivial matter and this threat to the high authorities seems unnecessary and may only worsen the situation as it may result in a bad equation with your boss as well as the authorities that you approach.

Q. What is the shortest distance between Devipur and Durgapur?

II. Javed's salary is Rs 4500.

Q. Vinod's and Javed's salaries are in the proportion of4.3 respectively. What isVinod's salary?

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 57

 

Statement I is merely an interpretation ofthe information contained in the question.

However, Vinod's salary can be ascertained from II as follows: Let Vinod's and Javed's salaries be 4x and 3x respectively. Then, 3x = 4500 or x = 1500. Therefore Vinod's salary = 4x = Rs. 6000.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 58

Statements:

I. Suman has 20 rupees less than what Tarun has.

II. Vivek has 30 rupees more than whatTarun has.

Q. How much money do Vivek and Suman have together?

From II, we have: V = T + 30.

Thus, from both I and II, we have: V + S = (T + 30) + (T - 20) = (2T + 10). So, to get the required amount, we need to know the amount that Tarun has.

General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 59

Your supervisor gets all his work done by you and takes all the credit himself. Your senior manager is selecting a team for assigning a prestigious project. Being a part of this project guarantees growth in the organization. He selects your supervisor and not you. You feel that you deserved to be selected as you are more capable than your supervisor. You will  

Detailed Solution for General Tests: Mock Test - 10 - Question 59

A mail that draws attention to your achievements and performance in the past can persuade the manager to consider you for the project. Thus, it makes sense to directly approach your senior manager. Furthermore, a written communication is preferred over a verbal one. Option b, talking to your supervisor to make him aware of your dissatisfaction and plead with him to suggest your name would be the next best option. Since your supervisor knows of your capabilities his support would help your attempt to be selected as a part of the team. Quitting the job is not a wise option. Talking ill about your supervisor is not recommendable as you might not be able to prove the facts. Also his not being a part of the team does not assure your selection in the team.
