### SBI PO Reasoning Quiz -5

Direction (Q. 1 - 5): Read the following information and answer the questions that follow:

Seven friends, M, N, P, Q, R, S and T, are studying in different branches of engineering - Mechanical, Chemical, Electrical, Electronics, Civil, Computer and Aeronautical— not necessarily in the same order. They study in three different colleges - A, B and C. At least two friends study in the same college. Q is studying in College A in Electrical Engineering branch. The one who studies Chemical Engineering is not studying in College C. S is studying Aeronautical Engineering in College B with only N. M is not studying Civil Engineering and is not from College A. R is studying Computer and is not from College A. T is studying Electronics but not from College A. No one studies Mechanical or Civil Engineering from College A.

1. Which of the following represents the group that studies in College C?

1) QN 2) PRT 3) MT 4) TRM 5) None of these

2. P is studying in which of the following colleges?

1) A 2) B 3) C 4) Cannot be determined 5) None of these

3. Which of the following combinations is true?

1) M - Civil-College C

2) N - Chemical - College B

3) P - Chemical - College C

4) T - Electronics - College B

5) None of these

4. N is studying which branch of Engineering?

1) Chemical 2) Mechanical 3) Civil

4) Cannot be determined 5) None of these

5. Who among the following is studying Chemical Engineering?

1) N 2) P 3) R 4) M 5) None of these

Direction (Q. 6 - 10): In these questions, the relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. The statements are followed by conclusions. Give answer

1) if only conclusion I is true.

2) if only conclusion II is true.

3) if either conclusion I or II is true.

4) if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

5) if both conclusions I and II are true.

6. Statements: H = W, W ≤ R, R > F

Conclusions: I.R = H II. R> H

7. Statements: M < T , T > K , K = D

Conclusions: I. D < T II. K < M

8. Statements: R < N, N ≥ F, F > B

Conclusions: I. F = R II. B ≤ N

9. Statements: H > W , W < M , M ≥ K

Conclusions: I. K < W II. H > M

10. Statements: R ≥ T, T = M, M > D

Conclusions: I. D < T II. R < M

1. 2;   2. 1;   3. 5;   4. 3;   5. 2;

6. 3; H = W, W < R

= H = W < R

So, H < R, ie R > H, ie either R = H or R > H

7. 1; T > K, K = D

= T > K = D. So, D < T and I is true.

M < T, T > K

= M < T > K. So, no relation can be established between K and M.

Ie II is not true.

8. 4; R < N > F

So, no relation can be established between F and R.

N > F, F > B

= N > F > B

So, B < N, ie II is not true.

9. 4; W < M, M > K

W < M > K

So, K and W can’t be compared, ie I is not true.

H > M, W < M

= H > W < M

So, H and M can’t be compared, ie II is not true.

10. 1; T = M, M > D

= T = M > D

So, D < T, ie I is true.

R > T, T = M

So, R > M, ie II is not true.
