    • A.

      Chore

    • B.

      Dirt

    • C.

      Soap

    • D.

      Germs

    • E.

      Shiny

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Soap is to CLEANING as MEDICINE is to CURING because soap is a product used for cleaning, just like medicine is a product used for curing illnesses. Both soap and medicine serve the purpose of eliminating unwanted elements - soap eliminates dirt and germs from surfaces, while medicine eliminates diseases and ailments from the body. Therefore, soap is the appropriate analogy for cleaning in this context.

    If the first two statements are true, is the final statement true? "Black haired people are kind. I am kind. I have black hair."

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Neither True or False (No rationale argument)

    Correct Answer
    C. Neither True or False (No rationale argument)
    Explanation
    The given statements do not provide enough information to determine the truth or falsehood of the final statement. The first statement states that black-haired people are kind, the second statement claims that the speaker is kind, and the third statement asserts that the speaker has black hair. However, there is no logical connection or rationale argument provided to support the conclusion that the speaker having black hair makes them kind. Therefore, the final statement cannot be determined as true or false based on the given information.

    5 cookies cost $0.30, how much will 30 cookies cost?

    • A.

      $1.50

    • B.

      $1.80

    • C.

      $2.80

    • D.

      $5.30

    • E.

      $30.00

    • F.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. $1.80
    Explanation
    If 5 cookies cost $0.30, then each cookie costs $0.30 divided by 5, which is $0.06. Therefore, if we want to find the cost of 30 cookies, we can multiply the cost of one cookie ($0.06) by 30, which gives us $1.80.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Sam and Edna have 56 marbles together. Edna has 6 times more marbles than Sam. How many marbles does Sam have?

    • A.

      8

    • B.

      12

    • C.

      32

    • D.

      46

    • E.

      49

    Correct Answer
    A. 8
    Explanation
    Edna has 6 times more marbles than Sam, so if we let the number of marbles Sam has be represented by x, then the number of marbles Edna has is 6x. Together, they have 56 marbles, so we can set up the equation x + 6x = 56. Combining like terms, we get 7x = 56. Dividing both sides by 7, we find that x = 8. Therefore, Sam has 8 marbles.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    A train travels 100 feet every 3 seconds. Approximately how far will it travel in 40 seconds?

    • A.

      3000 ft

    • B.

      900 ft

    • C.

      1300 ft

    • D.

      290 ft

    • E.

      1480 ft

    • F.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. 1300 ft
    Explanation
    The train travels 100 feet every 3 seconds, so in 1 second it travels 100/3 = 33.33 feet. Therefore, in 40 seconds, it will travel approximately 33.33 x 40 = 1333.33 feet. Rounded to the nearest whole number, the answer is 1300 ft.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

      24

    • D.

      88

    • E.

      42

    • F.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. 48
    Explanation
    The series is increasing by 4 each time. Starting with 24, adding 4 gives 28, adding 4 again gives 32, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series would be 44 + 4 = 48.

    Rate this question:

      17%

    • B.

    • D.

    • E.

      90%

    • F.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. 85%
    Explanation
    The percentage of lung diseases that are curable can be calculated by dividing the number of curable lung diseases (17) by the total number of lung diseases (20) and then multiplying by 100. Therefore, the percentage of lung diseases that are curable is 85%.

     Please fill in the blank in the middle of the series of letters with the set that makes the most sense. QPO NML KJI _____ EDC

    • A.

      HGF

    • B.

      CAB

    • C.

      JKL

    • D.

      GHI

    Correct Answer
    A. HGF
    Explanation
    The letters in the series are in reverse alphabetical order. Starting from Q, each subsequent letter is the one before it in the alphabet. Therefore, the missing set in the middle of the series should also follow this pattern. Among the given options, HGF is the only set that fits this pattern, as H comes before G, G comes before F, and so on.

      Leopard

    • B.

      Cougar

    • C.

      Elephant

    • D.

      Lion

    Correct Answer
    C. Elephant
    Explanation
    The word "Elephant" does not belong with the others because it is the only herbivorous animal in the group. The rest of the animals (Leopard, Cougar, and Lion) are carnivorous predators.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which word does NOT belong with the others?

    • A.

      Unique

    • B.

      Beautiful

    • C.

      Rare

    • D.

      Exceptional

    Correct Answer
    B. Beautiful
    Explanation
    The word "Beautiful" does not belong with the others because it is the only word that does not imply a sense of rarity or uniqueness. "Unique," "Rare," and "Exceptional" all suggest something that is not commonly found or is extraordinary in some way, whereas "Beautiful" is a more subjective term that can be used to describe a wide range of things.

    Rate this question:

      Spoon

    • D.

      Food

    Correct Answer

    • C.

      Uncertain

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    Assume that you are taking a telephone message for a co-worker who is not in the office at the time. Of the following, the LEAST important item to write on the message is the

    • A.

      Length of the call.

    • B.

      Name of the caller.

    • C.

      Time of the call.

    • D.

      Telephone number of the caller.

    Correct Answer
    A. Length of the call.
    Explanation
    When taking a telephone message for a co-worker, it is important to include the name of the caller so that your co-worker knows who the message is from. The time of the call is also important as it helps your co-worker understand when the call was made and prioritize their response. Additionally, including the telephone number of the caller is crucial for your co-worker to be able to contact them back. However, the length of the call is the least important item to write on the message as it does not provide any essential information for your co-worker to take action on the message.

      Your . . . your

    • D.

      Your . . . you're

    Correct Answer
    D. Your . . . you're
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the first blank should be filled with "your" because it is referring to the unit that Jack worked with, which implies possession. The second blank should be filled with "you're" because it is referring to the person who is doing a terrific job, which implies "you are."

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Choose the most grammatically correct and precise sentence.

    • A.

      The suspect said he had done nothing wrong.

    • B.

      The suspect said he hadn't done nothing wrong.

    • C.

      The suspect says he ain't done anything wrong.

    • D.

      The suspect says he done nothing wrong.

    Correct Answer
    A. The suspect said he had done nothing wrong.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The suspect said he had done nothing wrong." This sentence is grammatically correct and precise because it uses the past tense ("had done") to indicate that the suspect made the statement in the past. Additionally, it uses the negative form ("nothing wrong") to convey that the suspect claimed innocence.

    You have just finished typing a confidential letter from the director to the human resources office. The letter confirms that Musonda, your close friend and co-worker, has just been promoted to a new job. Musonda does not yet know of the decision. Which one of the following should you do?

    • A.

      Congratulate Musonda confidentially.

    • B.

      Inform just a few of Musonda's close friends.

    • C.

      Say nothing, and wait for the official announcement.

    • D.

      Inform Musonda's supervisor and start planning a luncheon.

    Correct Answer
    C. Say nothing, and wait for the official announcement.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to say nothing and wait for the official announcement. This is the most appropriate course of action in a professional setting, as it respects the confidentiality of the letter and allows for the official announcement to be made in a proper manner. Informing Musonda confidentially or informing a few close friends would breach confidentiality and could lead to rumors or misunderstandings. Informing Musonda's supervisor and planning a luncheon would also be premature without the official announcement.
