    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Directions for questions 7 to 9:  Each question below consists of a main statement followed by four numbered statements. From the numbered statements, select the one that logically follows the main statement. Whenever Arpita’s father is in town, she does not attend college and goes to her uncle’s house.

    • A.

      If Arpita has not abstained from college or she has not gone to her uncle’s house, it means that her father is not in town.

    • B.

      If Arpita has not abstained from college but her father is in town, then she will definitely go to her uncle’s house.

    • C.

      If Arpita has abstained from college but she has not gone to her uncle’s house, it means that her father is not in town.

    • D.

      Both (1) and (3) above.

    Correct Answer
    D. Both (1) and (3) above.
    Explanation
    If Arpita has not abstained from college or she has not gone to her uncle's house, it means that her father is not in town. This statement logically follows the main statement because it states that if Arpita has not done two specific actions (abstaining from college and going to her uncle's house), then it implies that her father is not in town. Similarly, if Arpita has abstained from college but she has not gone to her uncle's house, it also means that her father is not in town. Therefore, both statements (1) and (3) above logically follow the main statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Directions for questions 7 to 9:  Each question below consists of a main statement followed by four numbered statements. From the numbered statements, select the one that logically follows the main statement. If Ramesh leaves his job, then he will join an MBA course or an MCA course.

    • A.

      Ramesh has joined neither an MBA course nor an MCA course implies that he has not left his job.

    • B.

      Ramesh has not left his job implies that he will not join an MBA course and he will join an MCA course.

    • C.

       Ramesh has not joined an MBA course or an MCA course implying that he has not left his job.

    • D.

      Ramesh has not left his job implying that he will join an MBA course and he will join an MCA course.

    Correct Answer
    A. Ramesh has joined neither an MBA course nor an MCA course implies that he has not left his job.
    Explanation
    If Ramesh has joined neither an MBA course nor an MCA course, it means that he has not left his job. This can be inferred because the main statement states that if Ramesh leaves his job, he will join either an MBA course or an MCA course. Therefore, if Ramesh has not joined either of these courses, it implies that he has not left his job.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Directions for questions 7 to 9:  Directions for questions 7 to 9:  Each question below consists of a main statement followed by four lettered statements.

      If there is no college or I do go to Church, then that day is a Sunday.

    • D.

      Both B and C.

    Correct Answer
    D. Both B and C.
    Explanation
    The main statement states that if it is a Sunday, then there is no college and the person goes to Church. Statement B states that if there is college and the person does not go to Church, then that day is not a Sunday. This logically follows the main statement because if there is college and the person does not go to Church, it implies that it is not a Sunday. Statement C states that if there is not college and the person does go to Church, then that day is a Sunday. This also logically follows the main statement because if there is not college and the person does go to Church, it implies that it is a Sunday. Therefore, both statements B and C logically follow the main statement.
