Qn.6. 3; From I it’s obvious that P is either a son or a daughter of Q.  All we now need to know is the sex of P.  This can be known from either III (a husband is a male) or IV (a brother is a male).
Qn.7. 5;  From I we know that Atul  reaches on 16th July.  Now all we need to know is the day on 16th July.  But if we know the day of any other date (25th July e.g.) we can find the day on 16th July.  Alternatively, from III and II we can easily friend that Atul reached Bombay on a Thursday.
Qn.8.  5    From I,  X > Y.
From II, Z > M
From III,  M > N
From IV,  X > N.
We can’t compare X and Z by this data.
Qn.9 . 4; There are two unknowns (Sudha’s age and her mother’s age).  We see that the two unknowns can be found if we have two informations.  Hence picking any two informations from I, II, III and IV will suffice.
Qn.10.  4; Can be answered by II alone.  Or else, I and III give Some gardens are wardens as conclusion by rule I + A = I of syllogism

Qn 11 to 15:  I.  From (ii) and (iii) we conclude that Tuesday to Sunday we have 8 hours work with each of the 8 doctors visiting for 1 hour each while on a Saturday we have 4 hours work with each doctor visiting for ½ hour each.
II.  Let us now find the order of the doctors.  From (iv) it is obvious that Q is the first and U is the eight doctor.  From (v) it is obvious that W is the first after lunch, i.e. fifth in the overall order while R is the sixth.  Now from (vi) we know that P comes in the afternoon session.  So P must be the seventh (third in the afternoon) because fifth, sixth and eight positions are already occupied by W, R and U, respectively.  Now S comes in the same order as P in afternoon session.  S must be the third in the morning session.  That we have the order  (Q, ?, S, ?, W, R, P, U)
(The ? marks are occupied by T or V)
11. 2.  On a Sunday, R is second after lunch.  So, his visit will be over at 4 PM.
12.  3. If lunch is reduced by 15 minutes, lunch hour finishes at 1.45 PM.   1st visit after lunch finishes after next 45 minutes i.e. at 2.30 pm, second after next 45 i.e. at 3.15 pm, third after next 45 i.e. at 4.00 pm and forth i.e. visit of U at 4.45 pm.
13.  3.  Visits are of half an hour on Saturday.  Since T is either the second or the fourth to make his visit, his visit will end at O.00 am + 2 X 30 minutes or 9.00 am + 4 X 30 minutes.  i.e., 10 or 11AM.
14.   4
15.  3 .  S may be preceded by either T or V.

Qn. 16. 4; The letters are A, I, T and the word formed by them is TAIL.
Qn. 20. 2.  Just as a ball moves all over the cricket filed, similarly a shuttlecock moves all over the badminton court.
Qn.21. 3 Quick Method: 18th letter to the right of the 26th letter from right = 26-18 = 8th letter from right = C.
Qn.22. 2. Quick Method:  Now, 8th letter from right when second half (only) is reversed = (16-8)+1 = 9th letter from right when the series is not reversed.  This is D.
Qn.23.  3; Counting 8th letter from the right we don’t come across any number, so there won’t be any effect of dropping numbers from the sequence.
Qn.24. 4; F or U1F goes to middle in 5FH.  So, J from IHJ goes to middle in FJK.  1from U1F goes to first in 1HJ.  So F from 5FH goes to first in FJK.  Finally, K is at a gap of 2 letters from J; so K goes to third in FJK.

Qn.31. 4; Conclusion II follows from conclusion I itself.  Conclusion III follows directly from the second statement while IV follows directly from the first.
Qn.32. 4; Conclusion III follows directly from the second statement.
Qn.33.  1; Conclusion II follows.  Conclusion IV follows directly from the second statement by converting it

.
Qn.34. 4; First change the order of the sentences to align them:
No books are boys (Type E)
All boys are girls    (Type A)
E + A = O reversed, we have: ‘Some girls are not books’ as conclusion.  Hence, IV follows.  Further, conclusions I and II  make a complementary pair; hence either of them must be true.
Qn.35. 4; Conclusion I  follows directly from the first statement (on conversion).

Qn. 36. 2         C I G A R E T T E   ---  I  & E,   R & T

Qn.37. 4; The letters are S, E, N and T which may be made into the words SENT, NEST, NETS AND TENS.

Qn.38.  3; Soldiers usually live in barracks, but in a battlefield they live in tents.  Here tent is called igloo.

Qn.39.   2; The composer scores music for a song.  In other words, he directs the song and is therefore also called music director.

Qn.40.  3; The first three letters are written in reverse order and so are the last three.  The fourth letter moves one-step ahead and fifth one step backward

Qn.41. 2; I is a weak argument.   In fact, the argument highlights its own weakness by using the words “ in certain conditions”,  which means the theories do not have a universal acceptance.  Hence they cannot be fully believed.
II is a strong argument because it pinpoints the inherent weakness in economic theories.
Qn.42.  2; I is not strong; weather conditions are not determined by the government.  How can you blame someone for something that is beyond his control?
II is strong because it tells us that the present predicament is not entirely of this government’s doing.  Hence the blame is unjustified.
Qn.43. 3; I is strong because such a desirable effect is most welcome.  II is strong in  its own right as well because doing something at the cost of efficiency is sheer stupidity.
Qn.44. 4; I is weak because the arguer seems not to have understood the meaning of “self-centered”.  If a man helps others, how can he be called self-centered?  It is a vague argument.
Qn.45  2; I is not strong because ‘hiding’ is not the same as ‘undoing’.  Such short-term benefits often boomerang in the long run.
II is strong because even that ‘long run’ has not become very, very short.  The internet age has the following message: “ You shall get caught.  And very soon.”.

For Qns.46 to 49:  The given data, can be tabulated as given below:

Name                            Performance Order         Popularity Order

A                                              V                                  II
B                                              II                                   --
C                                              VI                                 --
D                                              IV                                 VI
E                                              III                                  III

For Qns. 50 – 53:     Please draw diagram as given in the problem.
Q50. 1;  2+ 2 + 2+ 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 = 10 cubes will have only one colour.   Other sides are painted  since they are hidden inside.
Q.51. 2;   Two cubes cut out of wood lying inside will have no colour.(hidden inside)
Q.52. 4;   4 x  2 = 8 cubes will have all the three colours.  (cubes cut out of top/bottom wood on all four sides.)
Q.53. 3;  Similarly 2 +2+2+2+4+4 = 16   cubes will have two colours.

For Qns. 56-60:  Following rules are followed to generate the password in order to visit a particular section.
For Section II, first and last words of pass word for section I are interchanged, and so also the second and third words.
For Section III, first and second words are inter changed third and fourth words, and sixth and seventh words of the password of Section II.
Passwords for other sections may be obtained by repeating the above steps alternately.
Q.56.  Given password for Section I as ‘me no pit je try ole sy’
According to the above assertions, other passwords would be as follows:
Section II:          sy pit no je try ole me
Section III:         pit sy je no try me ole
Section IV:     ole je sy no try me pit
Section V       je ole no sy try pit me
Section VI:        me no ole sy try pit je
Section VII:       no me sy ole try je pit
Section VIII:       pit sy me ole try je no
Hence the visitor wanted to visit Section VIII.
Section VI:        fu rye it che can pecha si
Section V:         si it rye che can pecha fu
Section IV:        it si che rye can fu pecha
Section III:         pecha che si rye can fu it
Section II:          che pecha rye si can it fu
Hence, the password for Section I is  fu rye pecha si can it che
Q.58. From the given password for Section IV, passwords for other sections are:
Section V:         two ear rye it sit wu he
Section VI:        he rye ear it sit wu two
Q.59. From Q 56, it is clear that the first two passwords for Section III repeat in the same sequence in the password for Section VIII.
Section III:         mew ne six fu also ga bet
Section IV:        bet six ne fu also ga mew
Section V:         six bet fu ne also mew ga
Section VI:        ga fu bet ne also mew six

Q.61. 3; We ‘write’ on a ‘table’.  We ‘cook’ on a ‘stove’.
Q.62. 2; A’s brother’s only sister-in-law = A’s wife
