PREVIOUS YEAR REASONING QUESTIONS | 10.06.2017


It’s always been good to learn from history since history repeats itself, similarly, it goes with the exam pattern we always try to find previous year questions to mentally prepare ourselves for upcoming hurdles in the exam and to check whether the level of our preparation is or is not up to the mark. Previous year questions give guidance to us and provide a base for the preparation of any competitive exam. It is always good to have an experience of how the level of exam varies from year to year. For every subject like in Reasoning Ability, we come to know the pattern of questions must be followed to prepare the examination.

1. Statement: A record of sort was created after the UP government, which advertised for 368 posts of peon in secretariat, got 23 lakh responses. The minimum qualification for the post of peon is that the applicant should be a class five pass out and know how to ride a bicycle. Grabbing the opportunity, opposition parties in unison attacked the SP-led state government over its promise of providing employment to youths in the state. Of the total 368 posts, 268 are for general category and the rest are for SC, ST and other reserved categories in the age group of 18 to 40 years. "When we categorized the applications viz. a viz. a qualification, we were surprised to find that 255 doctorates have applied for the job," a senior secretariat administration official said.

I. The decision is said to have come in the backdrop of the terror attack on the Pathankot airbase, with investigators suspecting that terrorists used Google maps to study the topography of the targeted area.

II. The concerns of the defence organizations should be taken into consideration.

III. India’s security and stability should be given prime importance.

IV. We in India are not mature enough to permit such exploratory things threatening national security. We have more enemies inside than outside.

(a) Only II and III (b) All except III

(c) Only IV (d) Only I and IV (e) None of these

Direction (8-12): Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

3. Six persons namely A, B, C, D, E and F teach one subject each, one after another viz., Reasoning, Quant, Banking, Computer, General awareness and English but not necessarily in the same order.

(b) If statement either I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

(c) If both the statements I and II taken together are sufficient to answer the questions.

(d) If statements I is sufficient to answer the question, but statement II by itself is not sufficient to answer the question.

II. Only two persons sit between Kapil and Sunil .

(b) If statement II by itself is sufficient to answer the question, but statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

(c) If statement either I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

(d) If statements I is sufficient to answer the question, but statement II by itself is not sufficient to answer the question.

(e) If both the statements I and II taken together are sufficient to answer the questions.

5. Eight friends A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting in a circle, but not necessarily in the same order. Four of them are facing outside and four of them are facing the centre. E faces outside. Both the immediate neighbours of E face the centre. H sits second to the right of E. B sits third to the left of E. How many people are seated between A and C (counting clockwise from A)?

(d) If statements I is sufficient to answer the question, but statement II by itself is not sufficient to answer the question.

(e) If statement II by itself is sufficient to answer the question, but statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.


SOLUTION - 

1. (d) The issue discussed in the statement is nowhere related to increase in unemployment, as the number of vacancies filled in will remain the same. Also, in a working place, it is the performance of the individual that matters and that makes him more or less wanted, and not his educational qualifications. So, neither I nor II holds strong. Besides, the needs of a job are laid down in the desired qualifications for the job. So, recruitment of more qualified people cannot augment productivity. Thus, IV also does not hold strong. However, it is the right of an individual to get the post for which he fulfils the eligibility criteria, whatever be his extra merits. Hence, argument III holds strong.

2. (c) All the options may be the probable reasons except option IV because the reason in that option is contradictory to the statement. We Indians are matured enough to permit such exploratory things threatening national security. So, this must not be probable reason.

Direction (3-5):

3. (c) Both I and II is required to answer the question.

4. (a) Neither I nor II is sufficient to answer the question.

5. (a) Neither I nor II is sufficient to answer the question
