Kris, an undercover agent, wanted to create a password for his mail account. The password is to be made from 5 letters – P, Q, R, S and T. The following are the conditions that he considered while making the password:
(a) None of the letters can be repeated, except R.
(b) If Q is used, T is also used.
(c) If R is in a password, it must be repeated.
(d) P cannot be the first or the last letter of the password.
(e) If T is used, then Q is also used.

20     Which of the following cannot be used on a 2-letter password?
A :R
B :T
C :Q
D :S
Solution
R can be used as RR.T can be used with Q and vice-versa. It is only S which cannot be used on a 2 – letter password. Since the only possible letter to go with S is P, but then P will have to be either the first or the last letter, which is not allowed.D

21     Which among the following can be a single-letter password?
A 😛
B :Q
C :S
D :T
Solution
P cannot be first or last hence cannot be used as a single –letter password. Q and T must be together, hence cannot beused as a single letter password. Hence, S alone can be used as a single letter password.C

22     If R and S are the first and the last letter respectively of a five letter password, then which of the following cannot be included in the password?
A 😛
B :Q
C :T
D :Cannot be determined
Solution
R _ _ _ _ S
R must be repeated, then at most only two places are vacant.
These two places must be filled in by T and Q. P cannot beincluded as the other letter will be either T or Q. none of which can be included alone.A

These questions consists of six statements followed by four sets of three statements each. Select as your answer the set in which the statements are logically related.

23 (A) Some spades are not clubs.
(B) No diamond is a spade.
(D) Some clubs are not diamonds.
(F) Some clubs are diamonds.
A :AFC
B :DBE
C :BAF
D :DEA
Solution
A: AFC : All the three choices are particular hence no logical relation can exist between them, hence incorrect.
B: DBE : No rule is violated, hencecorrect.
C: BAF: The only order can be BFA and in that the term “Clubs” is not distributed in the premises but it is distributed in the conclusion, hence incorrect.
D: DEA : The term “Clubs” is present in all the three statements, hence incorrect.

24 (A) All batsmen are bowlers.
(B) No bowler is a keeper.
(C) Some bowlers are batsmen.
(D)Some keepers are bowlers.
(E) All keepers are batsmen.
(F) Some batsmen are not keepers.
A :AEC
B :BFD
D :FCB
Solution
A: AEC : The term “Batsman” ispresent in all three statements, hence incorrect
B: BFD : The term “Keepers” is present in all three statements, hence incorrect.
C: ADF : Only one statement is negative, hence incorrect.
D: FCB : The correct order is BCF and no rule is violated, hence correct. D

25 (A) All numerals are numericals.
(B) All numerators are numerals.
(C) All numericals are numerators.
(D) All numericals are numerals.
(E) All numerators are numericals
(F) All numerals are numerators.
A :BCA
B :DFA
C :BEF
D :BDC
Solution
A: BCA: The correct order could be BCA, BAC or ACB but all of them violate the given rules hence are incorrect.
B: DFA: The term ‘Numerals’ is present in all the statements, hence incorrect.
C: BEF: The term ‘Numerators’ is present in all the statements, hence incorrect.
D: BDC : The correct order is BCD and it does not violate any of the given rules.
D The letters N, O, P, Q, R, S and T are coded by taking seven consecutive integers between 1 and 10. Also, the following information is known:
(i) Q is three less than N.
(ii) The number whose difference with the first number is same as that with the last number is O.
(iii) S is as much less than O as P is greater than Q.
(iv) T is greater than S.

26 Which letter is such that the difference of its integer-code with the integer-code of T is the same as that between the integer-codes of N and S?
A :N
B :O
C 😛
D :Q
Solution
Observing the arrangement incase (i):
2 3 4 5 6 7 8
R S Q O P N T
N – S = 7 – 3 = 4
T – x = 8 – x = 4
⇒ x = 4 = Q.

27 If N = 7, then the sum of R and T is
A :8
B :10
C :12
D :14
Solution
As N = 7 in the above arrangement, hence
R + T = 2 + 8 = 10

In a zoo, twelve animals, Elephant. Wolf Deer, Bear. Gorilla, Tiger. Antelope, Giraffe, Lion, Chimpanzee, Horse and Zibra are locked in twelve different cages from 1 through 12 (not necessarily in that order.) These cages are on either side of the path. Cages 1 through 6, in that order, are on the left side of the path and the cages 7 through 12, in that order, are on the right side of the path. Cage 1 is opposite Cage 7, Cage 2 is opposite Cage 8 and so on.
The arrangement of the animals is as follows.
1. The Elephant is in the P1 cage and is diagonally opposite to the Wolf which is opposite to theChimpanzee.
2. The Bear is opposite to the Giraffe which is exactly in between the Gorilla and the Antelope.
3. The Deer is opposite to the Lion which is exactly in between the Wolf and the Tiger.
4. The Horse is diagonally opposite to the Chimpanzee.

28 If the Tiger is not opposite to the Gorilla, then which animal is adjacent to the Elephant?
A :Antelope
B :Horse
C :Gorilla
D :Cannot be determined

29 In how many ways can the animals be arranged in the cage?
A :One
B :Two
C :Three
D :Four

30 Which animal is exactly in between the Giraffe and the Deer?
A :Antelope
B :Giraffe
C :Gorilla
D :Cannot be determined

31 If the Elephant is shifted to 12th cage and the Deer is adjacent to the Gorilla then which animal is opposite to the Tiger?
A :Antelope
B :Lion
C :Gorilla
D :Deer

32 Question :
Five items A, B, C, D and E are kept in five different boxes numbered 1 to 5. Exactly one item is kept in each box. C’s box number is as much less than E’s box number as E’s box number is less 1
than A’s box number. D is in box number 4 but not next to E. Then B is in box number
A :3
B :1
C :5
D :4
