Dear Aspirants,

Reasoning Quiz for Canara PO 2018

Reasoning Ability is an onerous section. With the increasing complexity of questions, it becomes hard for one to give it the cold shoulder. The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming banking exams like Canara PO Mains is to practice continuously with all your heart and soul. And, to let you practice with the best of the latest pattern questions, here is the Adda247 Reasoning Quiz based on the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

Directions (1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions below.

There are eight students i.e. A, B, C, D, P, Q, R and S sitting around a circular table and all are facing toward the centre. They all are belongs to different school i.e. E, F, G, H, T, U, V and W but not necessarily in the same order. They all like different subjects i.e. Social Science, Math’s, English, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. Not more than two students like the same subject.

The one, who likes English sits between the students, who both likes Math’s as a subject. B sits 2nd to the left of C and belongs to school E. R likes Physics as a subject. The one, who likes math’s sits opposite to the one, who likes Biology as a subject. S sits 2nd to the right of P, who belongs to school U. A belongs to school F and sits opposite to the one, who belongs to school E. The students, who sits 2nd to the right of C and 2nd to left of C, likes the same subject English. Student A sits on the immediate right of R. The one, who belongs to school W faces the one, who likes Physics. P does not like Math’s. Student D sits 3rd to the left of Q. D does not belongs to School G and School T. The one, who belongs to School G, sits opposite to the one, who belongs to School H. D likes Chemistry. Q does not belong to School V.

Q1. Who among the following likes Social science as subject?

A
C
P
Q
R
Solution:
Step1: From the given definite conditions: - The students, who sits 2nd to the right of C and 2nd to left of C likes the same subject English. The one, who likes English sits between the students, who both likes Math’s as a subject. B sits 2nd to the left of C and belongs to school E, So from these condition there will be two possible cases in which the student who sits 2nd to the right of C sits between the student who likes Math’s subject or the one who sits 2nd to the left of C sits between the student who likes Math’s as a subject.

Step2: From the some other conditions: - A belongs to school F and sits opposite to the one who belongs to school E. Student A sits on the immediate right of R. R likes Physics as a subject and the one who belongs to school W faces the one who likes Physics, so from these condition it is clear that A sits opposite to B and likes English subject. R sits immediate right of C and likes Physics. The one, who belongs to School W, sits on the immediate left of student B, so case 2 will be eliminated. Now, the one who likes math’s sits opposite to the one who likes Biology as a subject so one who likes Biology sits immediate right of A. S sits 2nd to the right of P, who belongs to school U hence from these condition it is clear that P likes biology and S likes math’s and sits on the immediate left of B. Student D sits 3rd to the left of Q. D does not belongs to either School G or School T. The one who belongs to School G sits opposite to the one who belongs to School H. D likes Chemistry, so from these conditions it is clear that D sits opposite to C, who belongs to School G and likes Social science as a subject. Q does not belong to School V, hence Q likes math’s as subject and belongs to school T and R belongs to School V. Hence we get final sitting arrangement.

P
Q
D
R
Solution:
Step1: From the given definite conditions: - The students, who sits 2nd to the right of C and 2nd to left of C likes the same subject English. The one, who likes English sits between the students, who both likes Math’s as a subject. B sits 2nd to the left of C and belongs to school E, So from these condition there will be two possible cases in which the student who sits 2nd to the right of C sits between the student who likes Math’s subject or the one who sits 2nd to the left of C sits between the student who likes Math’s as a subject.

Step2: From the some other conditions: - A belongs to school F and sits opposite to the one who belongs to school E. Student A sits on the immediate right of R.

Solution:

Q8.In which of the following expressions, ‘M < N’ and ‘O ≠G’ are definitely true ?
O < K > G < M = B ≥ N
O > K > G = M < B ≤ N
O = K < G > M > B ≤ N
O = K < G = M ≤ B = N
O = K < G = M > B = N
Solution:
By using option (b) in the statement, we can see that’ M<N' and 'OG' are definitely true.

Q9. Ram was returning to his home which is in front of him to the north. When his home was 100 metres away from him, he turns to the left and move 50 metres to visit his friend’s home. Then he moves in the same direction for 40 metres, then turns to his right and move 100 metres. How far is he away from his home?

Q10. Which of the following symbols should replace the question mark (?) in the given expression in order to make the expressions Z > U as well as V ≤ W definitely true?
Z > W ? U ≥ N = V
>
<
Either ≤ or <
Solution:
Z > W ? U ≥ N = V
When we put ≥ instead of ? sign then
Z> W ≥ U ≥ N = V In this expression Z > U and V ≤ W both are true.
