Choose the answer option that arranges the given set of words in the 'most' meaningful order. The words when put in order should make logical sense according to size, quality, quantity, the occurrence of events, value, appearance, nature, process, etc.
1. Cotton
2. Plant
3. Cloth
4. Yarn
5. Shirt
Correct Answer
C. 2, 1, 4, 3, 5
Explanation
The most meaningful order of the given set of words is 2, 1, 4, 3, 5. First, the word "Plant" comes before "Cotton" because cotton is derived from the plant. Next, "Cotton" comes before "Yarn" as cotton is processed into yarn. Then, "Yarn" comes before "Cloth" as yarn is used to make cloth. Finally, "Cloth" comes before "Shirt" as cloth is used to make a shirt. This sequence follows a logical progression from the source material (plant) to the final product (shirt).

Find the missing term in the series.
8, 8, 15, 23, 38, ___
Correct Answer
A. 61
Explanation
The given series follows a pattern where each term is obtained by adding the previous two terms. Starting with 8, the next term is obtained by adding 8 and 15, resulting in 23. Similarly, the next term is obtained by adding 15 and 23, resulting in 38. Continuing this pattern, the missing term can be found by adding 23 and 38, resulting in 61.

The question consists of a problem question followed by two statements I and II. Find out if the information given in the statement(s) is sufficient in finding the solution to the problem.
Problem question: Among five friends A, B, C, D, and E, who is the tallest? Statements:
I) B is taller than A, but smaller than D and E
II) C is smaller than B
Correct Answer
D. Both the statements even put together are not sufficient in answering the problem question
Explanation
From statement I, we know that B is taller than A, but smaller than D and E. However, we do not have any information about the heights of C and D. So, statement I alone is not sufficient to determine who is the tallest among A, B, C, D, and E.
From statement II, we know that C is smaller than B. But again, we do not have any information about the heights of A, D, and E. So, statement II alone is also not sufficient to determine who is the tallest.
When we combine both statements, we still do not have any information about the heights of A, D, and E. Therefore, both statements together are not sufficient to determine who is the tallest among A, B, C, D, and E.

There are 4 questions based on the same puzzle. Answer the questions based on the given information: (i) P, Q, R, S, T, and U are six students procuring their Master's degree in six different subjects English, History, Philosophy, Physics, Statistics, and Mathematics. (ii) Two of them stay in the hostel, two stays as paying guest (PG), and the remaining two stay at their home. (iii) R studies Philosophy does not stay as PG. (iv) The students studying Statistics and History do not stay as PG. (v) T studies Mathematics and S study Physics. (vi) U and S stay in the hostel. T stays as PG and Q stay at home. Which of the following pairs of students stay one each at the hostel and at home?
Correct Answer
B. SR
Explanation
The question provides information about the subjects each student is studying, their accommodation type, and their accommodation location. From the given information, we can deduce that R studies Philosophy and does not stay as a paying guest. Additionally, T studies Mathematics and S studies Physics. U and S stay in the hostel, T stays as a paying guest, and Q stays at home. Therefore, the only pair of students that stay one each at the hostel and at home is SR.

Study the given information carefully to answer the given questions. Six books — A, B, C, D, E, and F, each of different thickness, are kept on a table. F is thicker than B but thinner than C. A is thinner than both B and E, but not thinnest. E is thinner than F The second thinnest book is 7cm thick and the second thickest book is 13 cm thick. (Note: The thickness of all the books is in whole numbers.)
The thickness of E can be__?
Correct Answer
D. 9cm
Explanation
Based on the given information, we know that F is thicker than B but thinner than C, and E is thinner than F. We also know that A is thinner than both B and E, but not the thinnest. Additionally, we are told that the second thickest book is 13 cm thick and the second thinnest book is 7 cm thick.
Since E is thinner than F, and F is thicker than B, it means that E cannot be thicker than 13 cm. Since A is thinner than E, and the second thinnest book is 7 cm thick, it means that E cannot be thinner than 7 cm.
Therefore, the only remaining option is that the thickness of E is 9 cm.

(Note: The thickness of all the books is in whole numbers.)
Find the thinnest book.
Correct Answer
B. D
Explanation
The thinnest book can be determined based on the given information. It is stated that A is thinner than both B and E, but not the thinnest. Since A is not the thinnest, it means that B is thinner than A. Additionally, it is mentioned that E is thinner than F. Therefore, the thinnest book must be D, as it is the only book left that has not been compared to any other book in terms of thickness.

Statements:
No kite is a flight
Some flights are planes
Al planes are copters
Conclusions:
I. Some flights are copters
II. No kite is a copter
Correct Answer
A. Only I follows
Explanation
The conclusion "Some flights are copters" can be inferred from the given statements because it is stated that "Some flights are planes" and "All planes are copters". This implies that there is a possibility for some flights to be copters. However, the conclusion "No kite is a copter" cannot be inferred from the given statements as there is no direct or indirect information about the relationship between kites and copters. Therefore, only the first conclusion follows.
