Given the information presented, the only statement that could be considered true is that the fruit should not be eaten because it is poisonous. There is no support that taxol is poisonous or that taxol has cured anyone (choices a and c). There is no support for choice d.

Erin is twelve years old. For three years, she has been asking her parents for a dog. Her parents have told her that they believe a dog would not be happy in an apartment, but they have given her permission to have a bird. Erin has not yet decided what kind of bird she would like to have.

Solution:

QUESTION: 19

Tim's commute never bothered him because there were always seats available on the train and he was able to spend his 40 minutes comfortably reading the newspaper or catching up on paperwork. Ever since the train schedule changed, the train has been extremely crowded, and by the time the doors open at his station, there isn't a seat to be found.

Solution:

The passage tells us that Tim's commute didn't bother him because he was always able to sit down and comfortably read or do paperwork. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that Tim's commute has become less comfortable since the schedule change, because it is very crowded and he can no longer find a seat. There is no information given that supports choices b, c, and d.

QUESTION: 20

When they heard news of the hurricane, Maya and Julian decided to change their vacation plans. Instead of traveling to the island beach resort, they booked a room at a fancy new spa in the mountains. Their plans were a bit more expensive, but they'd heard wonderful things about the spa and they were relieved to find availability on such short notice.

Solution:

The first sentence makes this statement true. There is no support for choice a. The passage tells us that the spa vacation is more expensive than the island beach resort vacation, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the spa is overpriced; therefore, choice d cannot be supported. And even though the paragraph says that the couple was relieved to find a room on short notice, there is no information to support choice c, which says that it is usually necessary to book at the spa at least six months in advance.

QUESTION: 21

Ten new television shows appeared during the month of September. Five of the shows were sitcoms, three were hour-long dramas, and two were news-magazine shows. By January, only seven of these new shows were still on the air. Five of the shows that remained were sitcoms.

Solution:

If there were seven shows left and five were sitcoms, this means that only two of the shows could possibly be dramas. Choices b and c may be true, but there is no evidence to indicate this as fact. The fact that all of the sitcoms remained does not necessarily mean that viewers prefer sitcoms.

QUESTION: 22

On weekends, Mr. Sanchez spends many hours working in his vegetable and flower gardens. Mrs. Sanchez spends her free time reading and listening to classical music. Both Mr. Sanchez and Mrs. Sanchez like to cook.

Solution:

Because Mr. Sanchez spends many hours during the weekend working in his vegetable garden, it is reasonable to suggest that he enjoys this work. There is no information to suggest that he does not like classical music. Although Mrs. Sanchez likes to cook, there is nothing that indicates she cooks vegetables. Mrs. Sanchez likes to read, but there is no information regarding the types of books she reads.

I. Other airline companies may also hike the passenger fares.

II. The demand for seats of X-Airlines may remain unchanged even after the hike of fare.

Solution:

Clearly, such decisions are taken only after making sure that it will not affect the company's business adversely. So, II is implicit. However, the impact of this increase on other airlines cannot be ascertained. So, I is not implicit.

Assumptions:
I. Those who are not punctual at present may get motivated by the announcement.
II. The productivity of the company may increase.

Solution:

Announcing incentives for punctual and sincere employees would surely motivate more and more employees to be punctual, and this will ensure productivity. So, both I and II are implicit.

Assumptions:

I. Anonymous message is not likely to be hoax call.

II. Anonymous message is likely to be a hoax call.

Solution:

Why was the airport was put on a full alert? The authority must be assuming I. Hence, I is implicit but II is not. Again, to put the airport on a full alert indicates that the authority must be assuming III also.

Assumptions:

I. People were not expecting such an encouraging response for service sector.

II. Service sector is not managed properly in India.

III. Media is always very positive towards service sector.

Solution:

Since the response was 'surprising', so I is implicit. Nothing about the real management of service sector can be deduced from the statement. So, II is not implicit. Also, the statement talks of the media's response to only a particular session on service sector and not all in general. So, III is also not implicit.
