One of the main reasons behind the lack of applicants for teachers' training/degree
programmes is that teachers have not experienced any improvement in working conditions
and their salaries have not kept pace with salaries in other professions.

applicants for teachers' training programmes.

teachers.

programmes.

other professions are reduced.
5) No direct relationship can be established between the work conditions of a particular
profession and preference for it among the qualified candidates.
43. Read the following information carefully and answer the question which follows.
Get more involved in our real world. Food inflation is a fantastic way to teach our children
mathematics. Try having your child plot a graph of how incomes have grown in India for
different jobs between, say, 1950 and today (Engineer, Doctor, Maid, Driver). Have them plot
how costs have grown in the same period; it will be a fun exercise. By the time they finish the
exercise, not only will your children learn a lot, but likely you too will realise that while our
incomes have zoomed 300 times in this period, salaries of maids have probably gone up only 50
times and costs have gone up 100 times. Your maid still has a seven-day week, with no paid
vacation or casual leaves. And realising just how lucky we are is often the first step towards
serious philanthropy. All the following can be inferred from the above except that

I) real-world problems are a good way to understand other subjects as


well as have appreciation for the real-world problem.
2)food inflation has affected very differently different
professionals over the years.
3) though there are huge salary differences for all the jobs/professions,
the increase has at least not been less than the rate of inflation over a
longer period of time.
4) when we realise that we have been lucky, we tend to think about
philanthropy and helping those who have not been so lucky.
5) not only children, even the parents and other adults need to understand
and sensitise themselves about the inequality.

ANSWER
I. 5: Obviously, it is assumed to be as a contagious disease and so in public interest this notice-
cum-warning has been issued. Therefore, I is implicit.
II is implicit because ward No.2 is meant only for ABC disease.
2. I; I is implicit, that is why in city Z people prcfer to buy car X instead of car Y. II isn't
implicit.
3. 5; I is implicit, Railway services are available for these destinations, that is why the mention
of not providing concession for travelling to these destinations.
As Railways docs not provide concession for travelling to these particular holiday destinations, it
means Railway provides concession to certain people for travelling to places other than these
holiday destinations. Therefore II is implicit.
4.2; I isn't implicit.
II is implicit. As the notice warns against travelling without proper ticket and proposes, penalty
for it, it makes it clear that an inspection may be done to check the tickets.
5. 5; The phrase only in Nigeria-makes it clear that the prices of petrol and diesel have changed
elsewhere in the world during those three years. Therefore I is implicit.
II is implicit.
6. I; I is a positive step that will motivate people to contribute in the development of the nation
through paying their tax honestly. /I is a negative approach.
7. I; I is a positive step that would help them be familiar with the good side. II is not tenable.
8. 5; Both these would address the problem of accountability.
9. 2; I is irrelevant. II will help developed a better healthcare infrastructure. Hence it follows.
(10 – 16)

10. 1; T faces D 11. 2;

13. 2; Except S, all others sit at an extreme end.


J4. 2; Two persons P and S. 15. 3; E is facing Q.

17. 5; Given

From I. There are two Possibilities.
Floor Person Floor Person
6 R 6 T
5 S 5 S
4 T 4 R
3 Unoccupied 3 Unoccupied
2 2
1 1
Thus I alone is not sufficient to find on which floor does T live.

From II There are two possibilities.

T Q

-- or --

-- --

Q T
From I and II together.
The only possible arrangement is
Floor Person
6 R
5 S
4 T
3 Unoccupied

Thus T lives on the 4th floor.
Therefore both I and II together are necessary.
18.4; From I. hope to see you 3692 ... (1)
do you see that 1973 ... (2)
From (I) and (2), you see 93
Can't deducte the exact code of 'see', so I alone is not sufficient.
From II. to pray and hope 0286 (3)
hope I do well 5467 (4)
Even from I and II together we can't find the exact code for 'see'.
19. 1; from I
D is sitting on the immediate left of A. So, I alone is sufficient
From II
Nothing is mentioned about A.
20. 5; From I. 'X and Y' are a married couple, We can't say exactly who between them is
husband or wife. Therefore r alone is not sufficient.
From II. R is only grandson of Y's mother .So, Y is the father of R.
From I and II together:
As Y is the father of R X is the wife of Y.
21. 5; From I. P > Q = R > T
Nothing is mentioned about S. So, we can't say which is the lightest. Thus I alone is not
sufficient.
From II. Q > S > T
Nothing is mentioned about P and R. So, II alone is not sufficient.
From I and II together:
P>Q=R>S>T Thus T is the lightest.
(22-23):
22. I; One of the possible Venn-diagrams is-

Thus only I follows.

23. 5; From the above Venn diagram both I and II follows.

44. 1; Given expression is L ÷ M x R -- P ÷ Q

L is grand daughter of Q.

45. 3; Q must be the son of R to be a nephew of T . So ‘-‘ will come in place of


question mark.

46. 5; E is the mother –in – law or father –in –law of C as E’s gender is not specified.
47. 4; Given I > J ≥ K ? L ≤ N = M

Check option (1) I > J ≥ K > L ≤ N = M combining

I > J ≥ K > L ≤ M Can’t compare M and K

Check option (2) I > J ≥ K < L ≤ N = M combining

I > K < L ≤ N = M Can’t compare I and L

Check option (3) I > J > K ≤ L ≤ N = M combining

I > K ≤ L ≤ N = M Can’t compare I and L

Check option (4) I > J > K -- L ≤ N = M combining

I > K -- L ≤ N = M Thus I > L is true

Again check: I > J ≥ K -- L ≤ N = M combining I > J ≥ K ≤ M.

Thus M ≥ K is also true.

47. 4; Given expression is P -- Q -- R --- S with the conditions that S > P definitely
true. And S = P definitely false.

We wouldn’t check option (1)

Because of > and ≥ symbols both lead to the possibilities of S < P or S ≤ P

Check option (2) P ≤ Q -- R ≤ S combining

P ≤ Q ≤ S combining P ≤ S So, option (2) is not right choice.

Check option (3) P > Q < R < S combining P > Q < S combining

Can’t compare P and S. Thus option (3) is not the right choice.

Check option (4) P < Q ≤ R ≤ S combining P < Q ≤ S combining

P < S Thus option (4) is the right choice.

Once there lived a widow named Mangala who became poor after her husband, a

said to him one day, "You ought to start a business like your father. Before, it is too
late, you better go to the rich merchant Deen Dayal, who' gives loans to promising
young men like you". The next morning when Guniram went to Deen Dayal's house,
he found him shouting at a young man, RamlaJ. "I gave you enough money to start a
good business. You have not made any profit. You have not saved enough to pay the
interest on the loan. You don't know how to do business". "No Sir." said Ramlal.
"Look! Even with that dead mouse as stock-in-trade", the merchant said pointing to a
dead mouse on the floor. "a clever man would be able to do business and make
money".
Guniram, who was hearing this, thought for a moment and picked up the mouse. "I
am taking this from you on loan," he said to the merchant and at this. Guniram. On
his way carrying the dead mouse was stopped by another merchant, who purchased
