16. Read the following information and answer the questions (16-20) given below it: (1)Seven students P, Q, R, S, T, U and v take a series of tests. (2)No two students get similar marks. (3)V always scores more than P. (4)P always scores more than Q. (5)Each time either R scores the highest and t gets the least or alternatively S scores the highest and U or Q scores the least. If S is ranked sixth and Q is ranked fifth, which of the following can be true?

A.V is ranked first or fourth B.R is ranked second or third C.P is ranked second or fifth D.U is ranked third or fourth

Answer: D

Explanation:

In terms of scores we have : V > P, P > Q i,e V > P > Q. If R scores the highest, we have R > ---------- > T. If S scores the highest, we have S > ----------- > Q or S > ---------- > U. If S is ranked sixth and Q is ranked fifth, we have _ > _ > _ > _ > Q > S > _ In this case, R will rank the highest and thus T will rank the least. we have R > _ > _ > _ > Q > S > T Also, the order V > P > Q will be maintained i,e V and P will have second,third or fourth places.

17. If R gets more, V should be ranked not lower than:

A.second B.third C.fourth D.fifth

Answer: C

Explanation:

R > _ > _ > _ > Q > S > T. Again, if R ranks most, T ranks Lowest and occupies seventh place. Since V always ranks above P and Q so in the maximum, P and Q will occupy fifth and sixth places. Thus, V will not rank lower than fourth.

18. If R gets more, V should be ranked not lower than:

A.second B.third C.fourth D.fifth

Answer: B

Explanation:

R > _ > _ > _ > Q > S > T. Again, if R ranks most, T ranks Lowest and occupies seventh place. Since V always ranks above P and Q so in the maximum, P and Q will occupy fifth and sixth places. Thus, V will not rank lower than fourth.

19. If S is ranked second, which of the following can be true?

A.U gets more than V B.V gets more than S C.P gets more than R D.P gets more than V

Answer: A

Explanation:

If S ranks second, R ranks first and T ranks lowest.The order V > P > Q will be followed. So, the arrangement will be R > S > _ > _ > _ > _ > T.

20. If V is ranked fifth, which of the following must be true?

A.S scores the highest B.R is ranked second C.T is ranked third D.Q is ranked fourth

Answer: A

Explanation:

If V ranks fifth, P and Q coming before it will occupy sixth and seventh places respectively i,e Q ranks least. So, S will score the highest.

27. (Directions: 27-30). Each question given has a problem and two statements numbered 1 and 2 giving certain information. You have to decide if the information given in the statements is sufficient for answering the problem. Indicate your answer as A. statement 1 alone is sufficient, but statement 2 alone is not sufficient to answer the question B. statement 2 alone is sufficient, but statement 1 alone is not sufficient to answer the question C. both statements taken together are sufficient to answer the question, but neither statement alone is sufficient D. each statement alone is sufficient E. statements 1 and 2 together are not sufficient, and additional data is needed to answer the question How many ewes (female sheep) in a flock of 50 sheep are black? 1. There are 10 rams (male sheep) in the flock. 2. Forty percent of the animals are black.

A.A B.C C.D D.E

Answer: D

Explanation:

From (1) we know the ratio of male to female sheep, but nothing about the color distribution. So the answer cannot be A or D. From (2) we know that forty percent of the animals are black but nothing about whether they are male of female. So the answer cannot be B. Even putting the information together does not help because there is no way to tell what fraction of the female sheep re black.

28. Is the length of a side of equilateral triangle E less than the length of a side of square F? 1. The perimeter of E and the perimeter of F are equal. 2.The ratio of the height of triangle E to the diagonal of square F is 2√3 : 3√2.

A.A B.B C.C D.D

Answer: D

Explanation:

From (1) we can tell that a side of E is longer than a side of F, since 3 x side E = 4 x side F. Hence (1) is sufficient to answer the question and the answer must be either A or D. From (2) we could work out the ratio of the lengths of the sides (there is no need to do this, but since we are dealing with regular plane figures the geometry is quite simple), and although we cannot get the actual lengths, we can see from the ratio whether one is bigger than the other.

29. If a and b are both positive, what percent of b is a? 1. a = 3/11 2. b/a = 20

A.A B.B C.C D.D

Answer: B

Explanation:

Statement (1) tells us nothing about b and so the answer cannot be A or D. To find what percent a is of b we need to solve the expression (a/b) x 100. Statement (2) allows us to do just that: (a/b) = 1/20.

30. A wheel of radius 2 meters is turning at a constant speed. How many revolutions does it make in time T? 1. T = 20 minutes. 2. The speed at which a point on the circumference of the wheel is moving is 3 meters per minute.

A.A B.B C.C D.D

Answer: C

Explanation:

To find the number of revolutions we need to know the rate of turning and the time duration. Statement (1) gives us only the time, and so the answer cannot be A or D. Statement (2) tells us the rate at which a point on the circumference is moving, which, since we know the dimensions of the wheel, is sufficient to determine the number of rotations per minute. But since we do not know the time, B cannot be correct. But putting (1) and (2) together we have all we need, so the answer is C.

A.12 B.13 C.14 D.15

Answer: C
