SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 13

Directions: The question consists of two statements, one labelled as Principle(s) and the other as Facts. You are to examine the Principle(s) and apply it/them to the given Facts carefully, and select the best option.

Principle: Everyone has a right to defend his or her life and property against criminal harm provided it is not possible to approach public authorities, and more harm than is necessary has been caused to avert the danger.

Facts: One day, Thomas Wayne was coming to his home from a night show with his wife Martha and his son Bruce in Gotham City. They encountered a thief Joe Chill in an alley who threatened them with a gun to submit all their valuables. Thomas got furious and snatched the gun from him to threaten him instead. Joe thought Thomas would kill him; so, in fear, he took out his another gun and killed Thomas and Martha.

Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 13
Chill cannot be said to be acting in self defence as he attacked Wayne first. So, he is liable for the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Moreover as the principle suggests that everyone has a right to defend his or her life and property against criminal harm provided it is not possible to approach public authorities, and more harm than is necessary has been caused to avert the danger. So, the correct answer is option 2 only.

Facts: A and B are joint jailors. A is B's senior. They have the charge of Z, a prisoner, alternately for six hours at a time. A and B, intend­ing to cause Z's death, knowingly co-operate in causing that effect by illegally omitting, each during the time of his attendance, to furnish Z with food supplied to them for that purpose. Z dies of hunger.

Who is/are responsible for the death of Z?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 16
Both A and B are guilty of the murder of Z because they had the intention to cause the death of Z by not giving him food, due to which he died of hunger, and when an offence is committed by means of several acts, whoever intentionally co-operates in the commission of that offence by doing any one of those acts, either singly or jointly with any other person, commits that offence. The fact that A is senior is not to be considered.
SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 17

Directions: In this question, one or more principles are given followed by some facts. Read the principle(s) carefully and apply it/them to the given facts and choose the most appropriate option.

Principles:

He appealed before the court to be protected under the amended provision for the same.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 17
The minor's appeal will be successful as it will result in lesser penalty, and the second principle does not put any bar on reducing the penalty.
SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 18

Directions: In this question, one or more principles are given followed by some facts. Read the principle(s) carefully, apply it/them to the given facts and choose the correct option accordingly.

Principle: Right to carry on any occupation, trade or business is a Fundamental Right under the Indian Constitution.

Facts: The State of X passed a legislation totally prohibiting cow slaughter. A butcher, trading in meat of all animals including cows, challenged this legislation as violating the fundamental right to carry on his business.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 18
The right to carry on any occupation, trade or business is subject to reasonable restrictions. Banning cow- slaughter is such a restriction to better animal husbandry production and it is within the power of State.

The fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution are not absolute and subject to reasonable restrictions imposed by the government. Banning cow slaughter is a reasonable restriction to better animal husbandry. This restriction is not something which absolutely prohibits the butcher to carry on his trade, he can trade in other meats except for that of cow.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 19

When the pineapples were served in a fruit salad, everyone got severe cough and sore throat because that kind of pineapple was unfit for fruit salad. However, the pineapple was fit for a variety of other purposes (such as juice, smoothies, etc.).

Applying the aforesaid principle, which of the following derivations is CORRECT in regard to remedy available to 'A' in the given situation?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 19
The buyer will not succeed as he did not specify the purpose for which he required the pineapples. Therefore, he is not entitled to any remedy.

As and when the orders are placed, it amounts to acceptance of the offer to that extent. The order of 250 packets is placed on 15th January. Decide.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 21
If an order for the supply of 250 packets of chips is placed on 15th January, there is acceptance of the offer to that extent. So far as the remaining quantity is concerned, this offer can be revoked just like any other offer. An offer is a standing offer if it is intended to remain open for a specified period and can be accepted at any time during that period. The tender or offer is called a standing, an open or a continuing tender or offer.

Who has/have committed the offence, as per the principle?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 23
Here, B may be guilty of no offence; but A has committed the offence of culpable homicide.

According to the principle above, 'Whoever causes death by doing an act with the intention of causing death, or with the intention of causing such bodily injury as is likely to cause death, or with the knowledge that he is likely by such act to cause death, commits the offence of culpable homicide.'

Here, A was well aware of the fact that Z was behind the bush, even then he induced B to shoot. This shows A's guilty intention.

Being a judge, decide the validity of the contract.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 24
The contract is invalid if it is considered from the point of view of judge as the offer was for full Rs. 40 lakh and not in instalments.

Contract is a legal document formed between two or more parties that legally bind the parties and it must include all legally required elements to be enforced under state and federal laws and to not be deemed invalid.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 25

The present ages of Ram and Karan are in the ratio 2 : 3. The ratio of ages of Ram and Arjun is 8 : 11. The sum of present ages of all three is 155 years. What will be the ratio of ages of Karan and Arjun after 20 years?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 25
Let the age of Ram = 8x

Age of Karan = 12x(a/b = 2/3)

Age of Arjun = 11x

Sum = 8x + 11x + 12x = 155

x = 5 years

Present age of Karan is 60 years and of Arjun is 55 years.

After 20 years, Karan's age = 80 and Arjun's age = 75

So, required ratio = 80 : 75 = 16 : 15

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 26

Find the wrong number in the given sequence.

3, 4, 13, 38, 87, 166, 289

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 26
The given number series is based on the following pattern

4 - 3 = 12

13 - 4 = 9 = 32

38 - 13 = 25 = 52

87 - 38 = 49 = 72

168 - 87 = 81 = 92

289 - 168 = 121 = 112

Obviously, 166 is the wrong number.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 27

Saket travelled from home to a resort at a speed of 55 km/h. While returning via the same route, he got stuck in traffic and his travelling time extended by half an hour. The speed at which he was returning was 66 km/h. Find the total distance covered by him.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 27
He travelled both ways on the same route.

Let the distance of each side be A km.

His time difference for both sides will be half an hour.

Therefore, A/55 - A/66 = ½

A/330 = (1/2)

A = 165 km

Total distance = 2 x A = 2 × 165 = 330 km

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 28

Directions: In the question below, a statement is followed by courses of action numbered I and II. A course of action is a step or administrative decision to be taken for improvement, follow-up or further action in regard to the problem, policy, etc. On the basis of the information given, you have to assume everything in the statement to be true and then decide which of the suggested courses of action logically follow(s) for pursuing.

Statement: The number of dropouts in the government schools has significantly increased in the urban areas over the past few years.

Courses of action:

I. Government should immediately close down all such schools in the urban areas, where the dropout goes beyond 20 percent.

II. The parents of all the students who dropped out of the government schools in urban areas should be punished.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 28
Closing down all such schools is not a good step as you cannot punish 80% for the fault of 20%. To punish the parents of all the students who dropped out is absurd.
SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 29

Directions: Study the following information carefully and answer the question given below.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a circle facing the centre. B is second to the right of D, who is third to the right of F. C is second to the left of A, who is second to the left of F. G is third to the right of E.

Who is third to the right of H?

B is second to the right of D, who is third to the right of F.

C is second to the left of A, who is second to the left of F. G is third to the right of E.

The diagrammatic representation of the given information is as shown. From the diagram it is evident that C is sitting third to the right of H. Thus, answer option 3 is correct.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 30

In a certain code language, '216' means 'give and take', '964' means 'bulbs give light' and '824' means 'take some bulbs'. Which digit stands for 'some'?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 30
give and take = 216 (Sentence 1)

(bulbs) give light = 964 (Sentence 2)

take some (bulbs) = 824 (Sentence 3)

'Take' and digit '2' are common in sentences 1 and 3; so 'take' = 2.

Similarly, 'bulbs' and digit '4' are common in sentences 2 and 3; so 'bulbs' = 4.

Therefore, 'some' = 8

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 31

Directions: In the following question, there is a relationship between the number pair to the left of : : and the same relationship holds between the number pair to its right. One term is missing. One of the four given options contains the missing term. Identify the correct option.

13 : 17 : : 25 : ?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 31
The relation is n : (n + 4).

(13 + 4) = 17

So, (25 + 4) = 29

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 32

Rohit is going towards South. He turns left, then left again and then, he turns right. In which direction is he going now?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 32

13, 27, ?, 78, 119, 173

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 33
The series is in the following pattern.

13 + 42 - 2 = 27

27 + 52 - 4 = 48

48 + 62 - 6 = 78

78 + 72 - 8 = 119

119 + 82 - 10 = 173

Thus, the missing number is 48.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 34

Directions: In the question below, a statement is followed by courses of action numbered I and II. A course of action is a step or administrative decision to be taken for improvement, follow-up or further action in regard to the problem, policy, etc. On the basis of the information given, you have to assume everything in the statement to be true and then decide which of the suggested courses of action logically follow(s) for pursuing.

Statement: In response to the published tender notice, company 'Z' has received 57 sealed tenders.

Courses of action:

I. The concerned department has to open the tenders and scrutinise them as per the procedure.

II. The purchase committee will meet and recommend to the management the parties identified for allotting tenders.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 34
Only I follows, as II does not follow the standard procedure and purchase committee ought not suggest or favour any buyer.

II. The security guard posted at the gate may be able to stop the salespersons entering the society.

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 35
Assumption I is valid as it assumes compliance with the notice put up by the society.

Assumption II is also valid as it assumes that the security guard also follows the instructions provided in the notice in order to keep the salespersons from entering the society.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 36

Directions: Study the following information carefully and answer the question given below.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a circle facing the centre. B is second to the right of D, who is third to the right of F. C is second to the left of A, who is second to the left of F. G is third to the right of E.

Which of the following can be H's position with respect to B?

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 36
B is second to the right of D, who is third to the right of F.

C is second to the left of A, who is second to the left of F. G is third to the right of E.

The diagrammatic representation of the given information is as shown. From the diagram it is evident that the position of H with respect to B can be fourth to the right of B or fourth to the left of B. Thus, answer option 4 is correct.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 37

Direction: Read the passage given below and answer the question by selecting the correct/most appropriate options:
The other day I received an unusual and very gratifying gift: I was given a tree. Or rather, I was given half-a-dozen trees, which would be planted on my behalf. I had been invited to give a talk to an organisation. After such events, the speaker is usually given a token gift. Sometimes the gift is that of a pen, or something useful. Often, the gift is in the form of a plaque or similar commemorative token. However well-meant, such gifts are destined to gather dust in forgotten corners. This is why I was agreeably surprised to be given a scroll which attested that, in a designated plantation established for the purpose, six tress would be added in my name, as part of the ‘green’ movement being sponsored by the organization.

In an increasingly environmentally conscious world, the gift of a living tree or plant makes for a perfect present. The tradition of giving and receiving gifts has increasingly become a highly evolved marketing exercise. Apart from festivals like Diwali, Holi, Christmas, Eid and others, a whole new calendar of celebratory events has been created to promote the giving of gifts : Mother’s Day, Father’s

Day, Teacher’s Day, Valentine’s Day and so on and on.

What do you give to people - friends, relatives, spouses, children, parents, employees, clients, well-wishers who have more or less everything, or at least everything that you could afford to give them as a gift? Another shirt or kurta? Another bottle of scent or aftershave? Another box of chocolates? Another any other?

Q. The word ‘Destined’ means:

Detailed Solution for SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 37

The word ‘decided’ means to have clear opinions and the word ‘declined’ means to deteriorate or decline.
The word ‘departed’ means gone or lost or stray.
Here, the writer is talking about some gifts that are of no use to the receiver and hence they are kept in a corner of the house and lay there forgotten.

SLAT Mock Test - 1 (New Pattern) - Question 38

Direction: Read the passage given below and answer the question by selecting the correct/most appropriate options:
The other day I received an unusual and very gratifying gift: I was given a tree. Or rather, I was given half-a-dozen trees, which would be planted on my behalf. I had been invited to give a talk to an organisation. After such events, the speaker is usually given a token gift. Sometimes the gift is that of a pen, or something useful.

This is why I was agreeably surprised to be given a scroll which attested that, in a designated plantation established for the purpose, six tress would be added in my name, as part of the ‘green’ movement being sponsored by the organization.

In an increasingly environmentally conscious world, the gift of a living tree or plant makes for a perfect present. The tradition of giving and receiving gifts has increasingly become a highly evolved marketing exercise. Apart from festivals like Diwali, Holi, Christmas, Eid and others, a whole new calendar of celebratory events has been created to promote the giving of gifts : Mother’s Day, Father’s

Day, Teacher’s Day, Valentine’s Day and so on and on.

The art of academic writing is not easy to master. It is a formal skill, which requires precision and accuracy, and is perfected by continuous and dedicated practice. Academic writing is the skilful exposition and explanation of an argument, which the writer has carefully researched and developed over a sustained period of time. It is a time-consuming activity and demands patience and perseverance. But the joy of reading and sharing with others, one's succinctly composed piece of argument, is incomparable. Before beginning to write, the writer must ask himself a few questions - Why am I writing? What is it that I intend to share with others? What purpose will my writing serve? Have read enough about the topic or theme about which I am going to write? If one is hesitant to answer even one of the aforementioned questions, one better not write at all! Because academic writing is a serious activity
- it makes one part of a shared community of readers and writers who wish to disseminate and learn from well-argued pieces of writing. The structure of an argumentative essay should take the form of - Introduction (which should be around ten per cent of the entire essay). Body (it should constitute eighty percent of the piece) and the Conclusion (again, ten per cent of the essay). The introduction should function as the hook which draws the reader in and holds his attention, the body should include cogent and coherently linked paragraphs and the conclusion should re-state the argument and offer a substantial ending to the piece.
