# SBI Clerk Mains Reasoning Ability Quiz: 30th July

Dear Aspirants,

### Reasoning Questions for SBI Clerk Main 2019

Reasoning Ability is a crafty section.It eventually affects the number of question one can usually attempt. But this section is based on logic and rules can be aced if practised well enough. The only way to achieve this ambitious goal is by practising continuously with dedication. So to prepare you with best tools for the finals, here is today’s Reasoning Quiz based on the study plan and the exact same pattern of questions that are expected to be asked in SBI Clerk Main 2019.

Directions (1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions.
Eight persons are sitting around a rectangular table some are facing centre while rest are facing outside the centre. Two persons sit on the each side of the table. The persons sit on each side sit exact opposite to the persons who sit on other side of table, no person sits on the corner of the table. The ones who like Cities face centre while the one who like colour face outside.
D likes pink and sits second to the right of E, who does not like colour. C is not an immediate neighbour of E and doesn’t sit opposite to E. The one who likes grey sits Second to the left of C. The one who likes grey is not an immediate neighbour of D. E doesn’t like grey. C doesn’t like colour. Immediate neighbours of C face same direction. B likes Pune and the one who likes Goa sits third to the right of B. A likes red and is not an immediate neighbour of D. No two persons can sit together according to alphabetical order (e.g. A can’t sit with B and b can’t sit with C and so on). Not more than two persons who sit together face same direction. B sits immediate left of D. The one who likes yellow sits second right of A. G likes blue. H sits third left of the one who likes Delhi. C and A does not sit on same side.

Directions (6-10): Study the following information carefully and 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 : stars 66 37 monsoon 19 wonder 53 inside 48 26 amount night
Step I : amount stars 37 monsoon 19 wonder 53 inside 48 26 night 65.
Step II : inside amount stars37 monsoon 19 wonder 48 26 night 65 54.
Step III : monsoon inside amount stars 37 19 wonder 26 night 65 54 47.
Step IV : night monsoon inside amount stars 19 wonder 26 65 54 47 38.
Step V : stars night monsoon inside amount 19 wonder 65 54 47 38 25.
Step VI : wonder stars night monsoon inside amount 65 54 47 38 25 20.
And step VI is the last step of the arrangement.
As per the above rule followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate step for the input given below;

Input: longer 57 24 suffer 74 trunk 35 without 89 42 rapid further

Q6. Which Step number would be the following output?

trunk suffer rapid longer further 24 without 90 73 58 41 36.

V
II
Solution:
Students let us understand the Logic behind this Question and let’s understand how to solve it. As a first step lets first understand the logic behind the Output. If you will see the final output, you will observe the following:
(i) For words - All the words are arranged in alphabetical series in descending order from left to right. That means the word which comes first in alphabetical series arranges first and so on till the last word arranges.
(ii) For numbers – The resultant number in each step of input is obtained by adding 1 if, the number is an odd number and subtracting 1 if, the number is an even number as per the given input. Thus, the numbers are arranged in ascending order from right to left. The largest number arranges first, followed by the second largest and so on till the smallest number which is arranged at the right end.
Input: longer 57 24 suffer 74 trunk 35 without 89 42 rapid further
Step I: further longer 57 24 suffer 74 trunk 35 without 42 rapid 90.
Step II: longer further 57 24 suffer trunk 35 without 42 rapid 90 73.
Step III: rapid longer further 24 suffer trunk 35 without 42 90 73 58.
Step IV: suffer rapid longer further 24 trunk 35 without 90 73 58 41.
Step V: trunk suffer rapid longer further 24 without 90 73 58 41 36.
Step VI: without trunk suffer rapid longer further 90 73 58 41 36 23.
