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): In each question, a relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. The statements are followed by two conclusions. Study the conclusion for the given statement and select the appropriate answer.
Q1. Statements:
Z < L ≤ A = N ≥ X ≥ D; C ≥ N < O
Conclusions:
I. L ≤ X
II. Z < C
Only conclusion I is true.
Only conclusion II is true.
Neither conclusion I nor II is true.
Both conclusion I and II are true.
Either conclusion I or II is true.
Solution:
I. L ≤ X (False) II. Z < C (True)

Q2. Statements:
Y ≤ U = N ≤ O ≥ H > S; L ≥ D
Conclusions:
I. Y ≤ O
II. U > H
Only conclusion I is true.
Only conclusion II is true.
Both conclusion I and II are true.
Neither conclusion I nor II is true.

Directions (6-10): Study the given information carefully to answer the given questions.

P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W are sitting around a circle facing the centre but not necessarily in the same order. Q sits second to the left of W's husband. No female is an immediate neighbour of Q. S's daughter sits second to the right of U. U is the sister of V. U is not an immediate neighbour of W's husband. Only one person sits between P and U. P is father of V. W's brother S sits on the immediate left of W's mother. Only one person sits between W's mother and T. Only one person sits between W and V. V is the mother of R. V is not an immediate neighbour of T. V is niece of S.

Q6. What is the position of P with respect to his mother-in-law?
Immediate left
Third to the right
Third to the left
Second to the right
Fourth to the left
Solution:
This is a circular sitting arrangement of a family with blood relation.
U is the sister of V. P is father of V. V is the mother of R. Q sits second to the left of W's husband. S's daughter sits second to the right of U. W's brother S sits on the immediate left of W's mother. V is niece of S.

* First we have to draw blood relation tree from the mentioned information in puzzle:-

* W’s mother and S’s daughter is undefined (Q or T will be either W’s mother or S’s daughter).
* Now, we will go for circular sitting arrangement:
As, there is line in the sitting arrangement, only one person sits between W’s mother and T. It means W’s mother is not T. Then definitely Q will be w’s mother and T will be S’s daughter.
* So final blood relation tree will be:

* All the sitting arrangement will get clear with the help of Blood relation tree. So, as information given Final arrangement will be:

Q7. Who amongst the following is S's daughter?
Q
R
