Critical Reasoning Previous Year Questions (CAT) - Set 0013

  • Question 6

    I have been studying it, consciously and subconsciously, for 40 years and I still find men unaccountable; people I know intimately can surprise me by some action of theirs which I never thought them capable of or by the discovery of some trait which exhibit a side of themselves that I never even suspected.

    The idea in this sentence can be best summarised as

    a. men are inconsistent and therefore one should not be confident even about one's closest friends.
    b. men are unpredictable, one can never tell what they will do next; hence, one should be very careful in one's dealings.
    c. no matter how closely you know somebody there still exists an unknown facet of his personality.
    d. None of these     (CAT 1995)
