1. If D goes to the new office which of the following is (are) true?
I. C cannot go
II. A cannot go
III. H must also go
(a) I only
(b) II and III only
(c) I and III only
(d) I, II and III
2. If A is to be moved as one of the Managers, which of the following cannot be a possible working unit?
3. If C and F are moved to the new office, how many combinations are possible?
4. Given the group dynamics of the Managers and the recruitment agents, which of the following is sure to find a berth in the San Jose office?
5. If C is sent to the San Jose office which member of the staff cannot go with C?
From clues I & III we can conclude that B is always present and one only one of A & C is always present. Also note that when D goes than the only combination possible agents is D-E-G and from clues IV, in such a case A should be included.
3. b From clues IV & VI we conclude that F – G – H are the recruitment agents that should be included. Hence only one combination is possible.
5. b From previous solutions we know that F, G and B all can go with C.
It is a game based on the position you take in a clock. You are at the 1 O’clock position. You can move one step clockwise, 1 step anti clockwise or to a place that is diametrically opposite yours. For example, from 1 O’clock if you move clockwise you will be at 2 O’clock. As you start the game, you are at 1 O’clock position and your score is 1. If you move a step clockwise, add the value of the time in that position to your score to give you the new score. If you move a step anticlockwise, add the value of the time in that position and subtract 2 from your score. If you move a step diametrically opposite, add the value of the time in that position to your score and subtract 4 from your score to get the new score. You cannot get back to a position that you have already visited.
1. What will be your minimum score after the third move?
(d) None of these
2. What will be your maximum score after the second move?
3. If you had moved a step anticlockwise in the first move, you could not have reached one of the following positions in the third move.
(a) 10 O’clock
(b) 5 O’clock
(c) 7 O’clock
(d) 6 O’clock
4. What is the shortest number of moves that you require to reach the 5 O’clock position When you start from 1 O’clock position?
By moving a step anticlockwise in the first move, you reach at 12 O’clock. From here you can reach
(1) 10’O Clock through 12 – 11 - 10
(2) 5 ‘O clock through 12 – 6 – 5
(3) 7 ‘O Clock through 12 – 6 – 7. But you cannot reach 6 ‘O Clock.
A man said to a lady, “Your mother’s husband’s sister is my aunt.” How is the lady related to the man?
Your mother’s husband ⇒ your father.
Your father’s sister ⇒ your aunt.
So, the lady’s aunt is the man’s aunt ⇒ the man and the lady are brother and sister.
If P + Q means P is the brother of Q, P – Q means P is the mother of Q and P * Q means P is the sister of Q. Which of the following means M is the maternal uncle of R, if you can assume a third person K to be involved in establishing the relationship?
M is the maternal uncle of R means m is the brother of R‘s mother (say K) i.e., M + K – R.
