Directions (6-10): Study the following information carefully and answer the following questions.
Twelve people i.e. A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, and L are sitting around two hollow square-shaped tables but not necessarily in the same order. One table is inscribed in another table. Four people are sitting at the corners of the inner table and face outside the table. Eight people are sitting at an outer table such that four people sit at the corner of the table and face inside the table and the rest sit at the middle of the four sides (one on each side) and face outside the table.
Note: If ‘A sits opposite to B’ or ‘A faces B’ that means both A and B sit on a different table at the nearest distance to each other. L sits third to the left of the one who faces A. B sits second to the right of A. B sits opposite to the one who sits to the immediate left of K. Two people sit between K and C. J sits adjacent to C. D sits opposite to the one who sits adjacent to J. One person sits between D and I. E sits second to the left of H. H sits adjacent to F. G does not sit adjacent to L. K and C are not an immediate neighbor.

(b) Three
(c) Four
(d) More than four
(e) None

Solutions

S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. I. A≥O(true)
II. H>K(false)

S2. Ans. (d)
Sol. I. G≥R(false)
II. K>G(true)

S3. Ans. (a)
Sol. The largest domestic airlines corporation has made the announcement that more number of flights in trunks routes are introduced because it assumes that more number of passengers may travel in trunk routes. So Assumption I is implicit. Assumption II is not implicit because no information is given about other airlines.

S4. Ans. (e)
Sol. Both the assumptions are implicit because the decision to hold a function is taken as company officials may be able to make all the necessary preparations for the silver jubilee celebrations and it can also be assumed that majority of guest invited by the chairman may attend the function.

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol. By decreasing the price of a product, its sale can be increased. So, Assumption II is implicit. Assumption I is not correlated with the statement, so it is not implicit.

Solution (6-10) S6. Ans. (b)
S7. Ans. (c)
S8. Ans. (b)
S9. Ans. (a)
