From Statement-II,

S11. Ans.(b)

S12. Ans.(b)
Sol. Original Word- VIOLENCE
Obtained word- U J P K F M B F
After arrangement- B F F J K M P U

Solutions (13-15):
S13. Ans.(b)
Sol. Clearly, providing the existing Medical Colleges with modern and more sophisticated infrastructure can help them produce more and much learned doctors, as they can then cater to more students and provide quality education. So, only argument II holds strong while I does not.
Hence, the answer is (b).

S14. Ans.(d)
Sol. Clearly, any reform process may be changed, diverted or reversed at any stage, if it is to benefit the nation. Also, the idea of considering a process to be non-fruitful just because it has been borrowed from western countries, seems absurd. Thus, neither I nor II holds strong.
Hence, the answer is (d).

S15. Ans.(e)
Sol. Clearly, professional jobs require quality and merit and so the students having the required talent can turn out to be better professionals than those who join the course on concession. So, argument I holds strong. However, it is these special concessions which make the professional courses affordable for certain talented students, belonging to socially and economically weaker sections, who otherwise would remain bereft of the same. So, argument II also holds strong.
Hence, the answer is (e).
