Practice Test for XAT - 4 - Question 1

Having a perceptive faculty is definitive of being an animal; every animal has at least touch, whereas most have the other sensory modalities as well. In broad terms at least, animals must have perception if they are to live. So, Aristotle supposes, there are defensible teleological grounds for treating animals as essentially capable of perceiving. If an animal is to grow to maturity and propagate, it must be able to take in nourishment and to navigate its way through the world. Perception serves these ends.

Q. Which of the following would be closest to the main idea expressed in the passage?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for XAT - 4 - Question 1

Solution: The main idea of the passage is expressed in the following line: "... there are defensible teleological grounds for treating animals as essentially capable of perceiving.”. A “teleological” explanation is an explanation for something in function of its purpose or goal. Therefore, the main idea here is that according to teleology, it can be argued that perception must exist in animals because in them, it serves the purpose of allowing them to nourish themselves and navigate- in short, it enables them to live. Option 1 captures this perfectly.
None of the other options touches upon the main idea of the passage. Option 3, in fact, distorts the intended meaning of a sentence in the passage. Option 2 brings up a minor point made in the passage. Option 4 does not mention perception at all. Option 5 makes a twisted inference on the basis of the passage. Hence, the correct answer is option 1.

Practice Test for XAT - 4 - Question 2

Read the following passage and answer the questions.

The hurt that I am feeling right now, I know that you can feel it inside. But I want you to remember that once it’s through, You’ll always be my big brother, Someone whom I will forever look up to.


Which of the following is NOT implied in the above? 

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for XAT - 4 - Question 2

Solution: There is no data in the poem to suggest that the speaker caused the hurt. It seems to be merely a moment of pain for both the speaker and the person spoken to (his big brother). The lines are a reassurance that the hurt will be over, and the speaker has high regard for his big brother.
Hence, the correct answer is option is 3.
