(c) Only I, and either II or III are implicit
(d) All are implicit
(e) None of the above

Answer & Explanation

  1. Ans.(e)

Exp. Any advertisement highlights only the desirable qualities of the product. So, I is implicit. The ‘X’ brand has advertised its product in newspaper A. This implies that a large section of people reads advertisements in newspapers and that news-paper A too has a side circulation. So, neither II nor III is implicit.

Q2. Statement: These apples are too cheap to be good.
I. When the apple crop is abundant, the prices go down.
II. The lower the selling price, the inferior is the quality of the commodity.
III. Very cheap apples are also good.
(a) None is implicit
(b) Only I and III are implicit
(c) Only II is implicit
(d) Only II and III are implicit
(e) All are implicit

Answer & Explanation

  1. Ans.(c)

Exp. It is mentioned that the apples are so cheap that they cannot be good. This means that the prices of good apples are never too low and that very cheap apples are never good. So, neither I nor III is implicit. Assumption II clearly follows from the statement that apples are of inferior quality because they are cheap. So, it is implicit.

Q3. Statement: The employees’ association has appealed to the Managers of Company Z to introduce written examinations for clerical cadre recruitment to prevent selection of incompetent persons.

(c) Only I and III are implicit
(d) Only III is implicit
(e) None of the above

Answer & Explanation

  1. Ans.(a)

Exp. An appeal has been made to ‘introduce’ written examination. This means that so far written examination was not conducted. So, I is implicit. II follows directly from the statement and so it is implicit. However, nothing can be deduced about the mode of selection at higher level. So, III is not implicit.

Directions (4-6): In making decisions about important questions, it is desirable to be able to distinguish between “strong” arguments and “weak” arguments insofar as they relate to the question. “Strong” arguments are those which are both important and directly related to the question. “Weak” arguments are those which are of minor importance and also may not be directly related to the question or may be related to a trivial aspect of the question.

I. Yes, this will enable more and more people to get driving licenses.
II. No, this will increase the congestion of the vehicles on the road and will result in traffic jams too.

Q7. Statement: The decision of Microsoft to spend over $26 billion to buy LinkedIn, the “world’s largest professional network”, is an earnest attempt by the company founded by Bill Gates for continued relevance in a space that it once dominated, to the point of being a monopoly. That space – the technology sector – is nothing like what it was in the 1980s and 1990s, when Microsoft ruled. Over the last decade and a half, the rise of the Internet, social media and smart phones have dramatically altered the contours of this space, giving rise to new and more powerful companies such as Google, facebook and Amazon.
I. Virtual space as of today belong to search engines. Facebook is nothing more but a personalized search engine. For Microsoft, understanding this is the key factor; a $26 billion deal to buy LinkedIn may not result in substantial returns unless it is made relevant to common people and not just professionals.
II. The decision of Microsoft is somewhat a pragmatical acquisition and fruitful for its software business with the help of professionals linked in with LinkedIn on a global scale. Indeed it is a better buy than Nokia which is a shine losing brand in the midst of market flooding smart phone brands.

Answer & Explanation
7.Ans. (a);

Exp. I follows because Microsoft wants to continue its relevance in the space which suffered a setback due to the emergence of new companies. The conclusion gives us the route or the method, it must follow to achieve it. II does not follow because nothing is mentioned about the comparison between Nokia and LinkedIn in the statement.

I. Novak Djokovic is at the cusp of making another history. In the upcoming times, he has the opportunity to win the remaining two Grand Slams as well as the gold medal at Rio Olympics.
II. There is a lot of hard work and regimented life style behind his consistent performances on the tennis court. He is a product of immense talent, total dedication, rigors of daily training under equally gifted coaches and an insatiable hunger to achieve more.

Q9. Statement : Should India change its course from the economic reform process and look inward for all round economic development?
Arguments : I. No. There is no way to look backward after having started the process.
II. Yes. This will benefit India in the long run as the reform process borrowed from western countries will adversely affect our economy.

Answer & Explanation

  1. Ans.(d)

Exp. Clearly, any reform process may be changed, diverted or reversed at any stage, if it is to benefit the nation. Also, the idea of considering a process to be non-fruitful just because it has been borrowed from western countries, seems absurd. Thus, neither I nor II holds strong.

Hence, the answer is (d).

Q10. Statement : Should the admission to professional course in India be given only on merit without any concession to any particular group of students?
Arguments : I. Yes. This will improve the quality of the professionals as they will be able to complete the courses successfully.
II. No. This will keep a large number of socially and economically backward students out of the reach of the professional courses.

Answer & Explanation

  1. Ans.(e)

Exp. Clearly, professional jobs require quality and merit and so the students having the required talent can turn out to be better professionals than those who join the course on concession. So, argument I holds strong. However, it is these special concessions which make the professional courses affordable for certain talented students, belonging to socially and economically weaker sections, who otherwise would remain bereft of the same. So, argument II also holds strong.

Hence, the answer is (e).
