21.     E   22.     C   23.      B   24.      A   25.      A  

 

 

 

1.  (b) As the Central Government faced financial loss on accounts of giving rebate on farming for the last few years, therefore, they declared to finish the rebate of farming. Hence, statement II is the cause while statement I is the effect.    

2.  (a) Since a huge truck overturned on the middle of the road last night, so, the police had cordoned off the entire area in the locality last morning for half of the day.    

3.  (b) As the awareness about health in the society is increasing particularly among middle-aged group of people, the importance of Yoga and exercise is being realized by all sections of the society.    

4.  (d) The prices of petrol and diesel being stagnant in the domestic market and the increase in the same in the international market must be backed by independent causes.    

5.  (c) The two statements discuss two separate statistical and generalized results.    

6.  (a) The man in the photograph is the son of the only son of Lata's grandfather i.e., the man is the son of Lata's father. Hence, the man is the brother of Lata.    

7.  (d) The man in the photo is the son of the sister of Bajpai. Hence, Bajpai is the maternal uncle of the man in the photograph.    

8.  (b) C and Q. are sisters and A is the son of C. Hence, C is the mother of A or Z is the mother Q. Hence, Z is the maternal grandmother of A. P is the son of Z. Hence, P is the maternal uncle of A.    

9.  (a) M is the father of N and N is the son of V.

Hence, V is the mother of N.

From statement 1, P is the brother of V

Therefore, M is the brother-in-law of P because V is the wife of M.

From statement 2, the daughter of N, is the granddaughter of V. From this we do not get any relation of M to P .  

10. (a)

F3M  F is the wife of M

M5K  M is the father of K

Therefore, F is the mother of K.    

11. (c) The correct order is: Arrival Introduction Presentation Discussion Recommendation

3 5 1 4 2    

12. (b) The correct order is:

Skull       Face       Neck      Shoulder              Hand     Chest    Stomach              Thigh     Knee     Heel

3              9              4                  2                       10           6              8                         7           5              1    

13. (a) The fact that Vincent and Thomas live on the same street indicates that they live in the same neighborhood. There is no support for any of the other choices.    

14. (c) 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 b). There is no support for choice (d).    

15. (c) Since Shruti's parents think a dog would not be happy in an apartment, we can reasonably conclude that the family lives in an apartment. We do not know if Shruti's parents dislike dogs (choice a) or if Shruit dislikes birds (choice b). There is no support for choice (d).    

16. (d) 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 (b) 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.    

17. (c) Since the paragraph states that Kajal is the younger cousin, Sara must be older than Kajal. There is no information to support the other choices.  

18. (e) From both 1 and II, we find that Rahul is (35 - 25) = 10 years older than his brother, who was born in 1964. So, Rahul was born in 1954.    

19. (c) From I, we conclude that weight of each pole = (4 x 5) kg = 20 kg. So, total weight of 10 poles = (20 x 10) kg = 200 kg. From II, we conclude that: Weight of each pole = (weight of 3 poles) - (weight of 2 poles) = 20 kg. So, total weight of 10 poles = (20 x 10) kg = 200 kg.    

20. (d) From I, we conclude that 1-1 is the only daughter of M. But this does not indicate that M has no son. The information given in II is immaterial.

21. (e) From I, total sale of product A = Rs. (8000 x 25) = Rs. 200000.From II, we know that the company deals only in product A. This implies that sale of product A is the total sale of the company, which is Rs. 200000.    

22. (c) From I, we conclude that 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of March, 2006 were Sundays. So, the last Sunday fell on 26th. From II, we conclude that 31st March, 2006 was Friday. Thus, 26th March, 2006 was the last ' Sunday of the month.    

23. (b) Since the ice cube had already melted due to the heat of a nearby furnace so after this ice cannot remain as ice cube.    

24. (a) When a car suddenly starts the lower part of the boy's body will be in the motion while his upper will be at rest. Hence, he will always experience backward force.    

25. (a) Early in the morning the sun is in the direction of east. If we are going towards the south, our face will be in the direction of South and our left hand will be in the direction of east. Hence, if we go early in the morning towards the south the sun will always be visible at our left.      

 

 

 

 

  • Inferring information involves an approach to reasoning and logical understanding.
  • It is a kind of verbal reasoning in which understanding and reasoning using concepts are framed in words.
  • It aims at evaluating ability to think constructively, rather than at simple fluency or vocabulary recognition.
  • Verbal reasoning tests of intelligence provide an assessment of an individual's ability to think, reason and solve problems in different ways.      

 

 

 

 

  • Inferring information relates to verbal tasks that might involve concepts, like concrete or abstract ideas; or internalized language-based reasoning.
  • Verbal tasks involve skills, such as the ability to listen to and recall spoken information; understanding the meaning of written or spoken information; solving language based problems of a literary, logical, or social type; understanding the relationships between language concepts and performing language analogies or comparisons; and the ability to perform complex language-based analysis.    

 

 

   

  • Inferring information speaks about verbal intelligence which is the ability to analyze information and solve problems using language-based reasoning.
  • Verbal reasoning is important in most aspects of school work. Reading and language arts tasks required verbal reasoning skills. Even the more abstract courses such as Math and Physics require verbal reasoning skills, as most concepts are either introduced orally by the teacher or introduced in written form in a text book.
  • Verbal reasoning is typically assessed in a full intellectual assessment of IQ.
  • Basic verbal reasoning may also be evaluated through brief in diligence tests and language assessment.
