**GENERAL INTELLIGENCE & REASONING**

**Q.1. **Direction: In the below question one/two statements are given followed by two/three conclusions I, II and III. You have to consider the statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance with commonly known facts. You are to decide which of the given conclusions can definitely be drawn from the given statements.**Statements:**

I. All gloves are things.

II. Some gloves are warm.**Conclusions:**

I. All gloves are warm.

II. All warm are things.

III. Some warm are things.**(a) Only conclusion III follows****(b) Only conclusion I follows****(c) Only conclusion II follows****(d) None follows****Ans.** (a)**Solution.**

As is clear from the Venn diagram, only conclusion (III) follows. Hence, option (a) is the correct answer.**Q.2. If 42 + 74 = 66 and 35 + 17 = 64, what is 57 + 21?(a) 68(b) 36(c) 72(d) 44**

As (4 + 2) x (7 + 4) = 66 and (3 + 5) x (1 + 7) = 64 Similarly, (5 + 7) x (2 + 1) =

The young one of a baboon is called an infant while the young one of a beaver is called a kitten. Hence, option (A) is the correct answer.

(b) PMTKCJ

(c) PMTLBJ

(d) PNTKDK

Similarly,

The series in numerical form can be written as 1-3, 1 -2-4,5-7,5-6-8,9-11. So, the next term in the series will be 9-10-12, i.e., ijl.

(b) YZB, DFF

(d) YAC, EGI

The series is A(1) C(3) E(5), G(7) l(9) K(11), and so on. So, the required terms will be Y(25) A(1) C(3), E(5) G(7) l(9).

a_bab_aab_bcaa__abc

(a) bbab

(b) bcab

(c) abac

(d) acab

The series is a,ab,abc,a,ab,abc,...

(a) French Beans

(b) Gourd

(c) Pumpkin

(d) Jackfruit

Gourd, Pumpkin and French Beans grow on vines while Jackfruit grows on trees. Hence, option (d) is the answer.

1. Some constellations are stars.

2. All stars are galaxies.

**Conclusions:**

I. All constellations are galaxies.

II. Some constellations are galaxies.

III. All galaxies are constellations.**(a) Only conclusion I follows(b) Only conclusion II follows(c) Only conclusions I and II follow(d) Only conclusions I and III follow**

As shown in the diagram, only conclusion II follows. Hence, option (b) is the correct answer.

(a) Arun

(b) Charu

(c) Esha

(d) Divy

The sequence will be

Arun > Bhanu > Esha > Charu > Divya

Hence,

Arun is the eldest.

This analogy is about the idioms which are used to draw comparisons. The idioms are as sick as a dog and as busy as a bee. Hence, option (d) is the correct answer.

(a) 325

(b) 118

(d) 253

Sum of the digits of 272 is 11. While in rest of the three options, sum of the digits of the numbers is 10.

People succeed when they work hard.

I. Only hard work leads to success.

II. Honesty does not lead to success.

(b) Only conclusion II follows

(c) Both conclusions I and II follow

(d) Neither conclusion I nor II follows

The given statement shows a cause and effect relationship. It says that when people work hard, they succeed. Neither does the statement say anything about hard work being the only way to succeed nor does it say anything about any other way that will or will not lead to success. Therefore, we can say that none of the conclusions follow. Hence, option (d) is the correct answer.

a_bcabb_abc_aa_c

(b) bccb

(c) abac

(d) accb

The series is aabc, abbc, abcc.....

(a) Man

(b) Whale

(d) Seal

Animals in options (a), (b) and (d) are mammals while hen is a bird. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

(b)

(d)

(a) Solar energy

(b) Biomass

(c) Fossil fuel

(d) Radiant energy

Fossil fuel is the answer since it is a non renewable source of energy, while energy resources in options (a) , (b) and (d) are renewable energy sources.

1 and 5 are opposite but in option (a) they are adjacent. Similarly, 3 and 6 are opposite but in option (b) they are adjacent. Similarly, 2 and 4 are opposite but in option (d) they are adjacent. Hence, option (c) is correct.

(b) 961

(c) 57

(d) 52

Reversing the digits of the numbers in series, we get

1,9, 25, 49,81,75, 169

All numbers are squares of odd consecutive numbers except 75.

Hence, answer is 57.

Option (c) is the answer since the given word has a single ‘R’ while TROUSER uses ‘R’ twice.

(b) RACOON

(c) RANCOR

(d) CAVER

Option (d) is the correct answer since the given word does not have ‘E’, while CAVERN has an ‘E’ in it.

(a) Alfalfa

(b) Aloe Vera

(c) Bonsai

(d) Lavender

Out of the given options, only bonsai is not a plant. Bonsai is a Japanese art form using miniature trees grown in containers. Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.

Hence, A is in North with respect to B.

In column 1,

8 x 32 = 256 = 16

In column 2,

32 x 18 = 576 = 24

Similarly, in column 3,

27 x ? = 18

Similarly,

By reversing the digits of each term, the series will be:

27,64, 125, 216, 343.

The series is formed by the cubes of consecutive numbers starting from 3. Hence, the next term in the series will be 8

462 * 3 ⇒ 462 x 3 = 1386 → 1 + 3 + 8 + 6 = 18

564 * 2 ⇒ 564 x 2 = 1128 → 1 + 1 + 2 + 8 = 12

Similarly, 617 * 4 ⇒ 617 x 4
