Dear Aspirants,

### Reasoning Questions for IBPS SO 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 IBPS SO Prelims 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 questions which follow-
There are Six Professors A, B, C, D, E and F of different subjects i.e. Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Social Science, Hindi and English (not necessarily in the same order) taking classes from Monday to Saturday (not necessarily in the same order). There are two days gap between D’s class and chemistry class. E, who is the professor of Physics, take class on Saturday. A neither take class of Social Science nor English. There are as many classes take between Chemistry class and C’s class as between A’s class and C’s class. F, who is the Professor of Hindi, takes class just before C but not on Monday. Social Science class takes before English. A is not professor of chemistry.
