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 RRB PO and Clerk 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): In each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and Give answer-

Q1. How is 'Name' coded in the code language?
Statements:
I. 'Jolly Kotak Norway’ means ‘@ # &' and 'Name Kotak Just’ means ‘\$ * #'.
II. 'Name Youth Sometime' means '* % !' and 'Just Norway Sometime' means '\$ @ !'.
If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
To get the code of Name we have to use both the given statements together.
From Statement I we can find that Name either coded as \$ or * but from Statement I and II we can clearly find the code of Name i.e. *.

Q2. Who among R, S, K, A, and M is exactly in the middle when they are arranged in ascending order of their heights?
Statements:
I. A is taller than both R and K but shorter than S.
II. M is shorter than S but taller than A.
If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
From I, we have: S >A > R/K> R/K.
From II, we have: S>M>A
Combining the above two, we have:
S>M >A > R/K> R/K.
Clearly, A is in the middle.

Q3. How is R related to N?
Statements:
I. Q is daughter in law of T. Q has only two child R and N, who is sister of R.

If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
From I,
From II,
By combining both the statements we cannot get the answer.

I. P sits second to the left of Q. Q faces the centre. R sits second to the right of P.
II. S sits third to the left of T. T faces the centre. Q sits on the immediate left of S. T is an immediate neighbour of Q.

If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
From Statement I- We can say that all are not facing the center.

From Statement II-We cannot define.
