Following the study plan for SBI PO Preliminary Examination 2018, the fourth week ends with practice questions on Miscellaneous topics. To ensure proper preparation of the section we advise you to go through all the questions sincerely and try to attempt each one of them. Afterward, match your solutions and the approach with the one that would be provided later. Practice more and more questions on the same section to enhance your grip over the topics. Following is the Reasoning Ability quiz to help you practice with the best of latest pattern questions.

Directions (1-5): Study the given information carefully to answer the given questions:

Eight persons, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, and Q are sitting around a circular table facing the centre with equal distances between each other (but not necessarily in the same order). Each one of them is also related to N in some way or the other.
K sits third to the left of N. Only one person sits between N and Q. N’s sister sits to the immediate right of Q. Only two persons sit between N’s sister and N’s mother. J sits to the immediate right of N’s mother. P sits immediate right of M. N’s brother sits third to the right of P. N’s wife sits second to the left of N’s brother. Only three persons sit between N’s wife and L. N’s son sits second to the right of N’s father. Only two persons sit between N’s father and N’s daughter. O sits opposite to N.

Q1. Who amongst the following is the son of N?
(a) M
(b) P
(c) K

Sol(1-5): K sits third to the left of N. Only one person sits between N and Q. N’s sister sits to the immediate right of Q. From this there will be two possible cases-
Only two persons sit between N’s sister and N’s mother. J sits to the immediate right of N’s mother

P sits immediate right of M. N’s brother sits third to the right of P.
N’s wife sits second to the left of N’s brother. Further Only three persons sit between N’s wife and L.
Remaining O sits opposite to N. So, from this case-2 will be eliminated. Further, N’s son sits second to the right of N’s father. So, Q will be N’s son and O will be N’s father. Now, Only two persons sit between N’s father and N’s daughter. So, M will be N’s daughter. So the final arrangement is----

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

A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement.

Input: say to 12 by 29 all 71 same 53 81 above 61
Step I: above say to by 29 all 71 same 53 81 61 12
Step II: above same say to by all 71 53 81 61 12 29
Step III: above same say all to by 71 81 61 12 29 53
Step IV: above same say all to by 71 81 12 29 53 61
Step V: above same say all to by 81 12 29 53 61 71
Step VI: above same say all to by 12 29 53 61 71 81

Step VI is the last step of the above input. Now, the following questions are based on the given input.
Input:  toy 18 till 24 36 is of never 87 99 cut 73

Q6. Which of the following will be the penultimate step?
(a) Step VI
(b) Step V
(c) Step IV
(d) Step III
(e) None of these

Q7. What will be the position of ‘is’ in the last but one step?
(a) Seventh from the left
(b) Sixth from the right
(c) Sixth from the left
(d) Fifth from the left
(e) None of these

Q8. Which word/number would be the fourth from the right end in Step IV?
(a) cut
(b) 18
(c) 24
(d) 99
(e) 73

Q9. How many steps will be required to give the final output?
(a) Five
(b) Four
(c) Six
(d) Seven
(e) Eight

Q10. Which step would give the following output: ‘never till toy cut is of 87 99 73 18 24 36’?
(a) Step IV
(b) Step III
(c) Step II
(d) Step V
(e) There will be no such step

Directions (6-10):
The machine rearranges the words and numbers in such a way that the words are arranged according to the length (total number of letters in the word) of words in descending order from left and words of the same length are arranged in reverse English alphabetical order, while numbers are arranged in ascending order on the right end in each step.
Input: toy 18 till 24 36 is of never 87 99 cut 73
Step I: never toy till 24 36 is of 87 99 cut 73 18
Step II: never till toy 36 is of 87 99 cut 73 18 24
Step III: never till toy cut is of 87 99 73 18 24 36
Step IV: never till toy cut of is 87 99 18 24 36 73
Step V: never till toy cut of is 99 18 24 36 73 87
Step VI: never till toy cut of is 18 24 36 73 87 99
Step VI is the final step.
S6. Ans.(b)
S7. Ans.(c)
S8. Ans.(b)
S9. Ans.(c)
S10. Ans.(b)

(a) if only conclusion I follows.
(b) if only conclusion II follows.
(c) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
(d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
(e) if both conclusions I and II follow.
