II.Ram will try to prove his worth in the trial period

a)Only assumption I is implicit

b) Only assumption II is implicit

c) Either I or II is implicit

d) Neither I or II is implicit

e) Both I and II are implicit

Explanation:

The performance of the Ram has to be tested over a span of time as the statement mentions. So, I is implicit. The statement mentions that the Ram’s worth shall be reviewed (during trial period) before confirmation. So, II is also implicit.

The correct answer is Option E

2. Statement: It is suggested to put the child in school at the age of 4 or 5.

Assumptions:

I. The child reaches the appropriate level of development at age of 4 or 5 and is ready to get the education.

II. The schools do not accept children after seven years of age for admissions

a)Only assumption I is implicit

b) Only assumption II is implicit

c) Either I or II is implicit

d) Neither I or II is implicit

e) Both I and II are implicit

Explanation:

Since Statement I talks about the appropriate level of development at age of 4 or 5 which makes sense. So, I is implicit.

But we cannot conclude anything about admission after the age of 7 years as it is not mentioned in the statement. So, II is not implicit.

The correct answer is Option A

c) Either I or II is strong

d) Neither I nor II is strong

e) Both I and II are strong

Clearly, South Africa can export only the surplus and that which can be saved after fulfilling its own needs, to pay for its imports. Encouragement to export cannot lead to shortages as it shall provide the resources for imports. So, only argument I holds.

The correct answer is Option A

4. Statement: Should the medicines manufactured and patented in Western countries be tried out on sample basic in India first and then license for sale should be given?

d) Neither I nor II is strong

e) Both I and II are strong

It is evident that the health of the citizens is a major concern for the Government. So, a product such as medicines must be first studied and tested in the Indian context before giving license for its sale. So, the only argument I holds strong.

c) The data in both the Statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question

d) 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

e) The data either in Statement I alone or in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question

Explanation:

From statement I, we get Nilesh>Mohit>Kiran but we don't know the position of Jatin and Lokesh. So we can't conclude that who is the 2nd tallest.

From statement II, we get Lokesh>Nilesh and Jatin is not the tallest but again from this statement, we can't conclude anything about the 2nd tallest person

On considering both the statements, we get Lokesh>Nilesh>Mohit>Kiran only and Jatin can be anywhere in between Lokesh and Kiran.

So we can't conclude who is the 2nd tallest person Therefore, the data neither in Statement I nor in Statement II is sufficient to answer this question.

The correct answer is Option B
