# Mixed Reasoning Questions Set 1 (New Pattern)

We are providing you with the Reasoning New Pattern Questions type of which were asked in SBI PO 2016 and IBPS PO 2016. The type of first 5 questions were asked in SBI PO 2016 and Syllogism New pattern Questions were asked in IBPS PO 2016.

Directions (1-5): Each question below contains two rows marked by I and II. The resultant of each row can be found by the rules given below. Answer the question followed by the rows by finding the resultant with the help of following five rules:

1) If a perfect cube is followed by an odd number, then the numbers are needed to be added.
2) If an even number is followed by a prime number, then subtract the second number from the first one.
3) If an odd number is followed by a perfect square, divide the second number by the first one.
4) If an odd number is followed by a non-perfect square, multiply the two numbers.
5) If a composite number is followed by an even number, then the numbers are needed to be added.

1. I.  6  3  36
II. x  7   6
If x is equal to the resultant of the first row, then find the resultant of the second row.
A) 42
B) 45
C) 30
D) 36
E) 33
Option C

For row I –
From rule 2: 6 – 3 = 3
From rule 3: 36/3 = 12
Resultant of second row = 12
So, x = 12
For row II –
From rule 2: 12 – 7 = 5
From rule 4: 5 × 6 = 30
Resultant of second row = 30
2. I.    7    6   10
II. 10  17   35
Find the multiplication of the resultant of both rows.
A) 242
B) 423
C) 362
D) 260
E) 333
Option D

For row I –
From rule 4: 7 × 6 = 42
From rule 5: 42 + 10 = 52
Resultant of second row = 52
For row II –
From rule 2: 17 – 10 = 5
From rule 4: 35 ÷ 7 = 5
Resultant of second row = 5
So answer = 52 × 5 = 260
3. I.  4   4   15
II. 3   x    3
If x is equal to the resultant of first row, then find the resultant of second row.
A) 142
B) 207
C) 162
D) 160
E) 199
Option B

For row I –
From rule 5: 4 + 4 = 8
From rule 1: 8 + 15 = 23
Resultant of second row = 23
So x = 23
For row II –
From rule 4: 3 × 23 = 69
From rule 4: 69 × 3 = 207
Resultant of second row = 207
4. I.  5   100   4
II. 8    9      3
Find the total of the resultant of both rows.
A) 54
B) 75
C) 52
D) 60
E) 73
Option B

For row I –
From rule 3: 100 ÷ 5 = 20
From rule 5: 20 + 4 = 24
Resultant of second row = 24
For row II –
From rule 1: 8 + 9 = 17
From rule 4: 17 × 3 = 51
Resultant of second row = 51
So answer = 24 + 51 = 75
5. I.  9   5   25
II. 4  19  21
Find the multiplication of the resultant of both rows.
A) 182
B) 123
C) 168
D) 160
E) 175
Option E

For row I –
From rule 4: 9 × 5 = 45
From rule 3: 25 ÷ 45 = 5/9
Resultant of second row = 5/9
For row II –
From rule 2: 19 – 4 = 15
From rule 4: 15 × 21
Resultant of second row = 15 × 21
So answer = 5/9 × 15 × 21 = 175

Directions (6-10): Each questions below contain 2 conclusions followed by statements. Find from which of the statements given, both the conclusions given follow.

1. Conclusions: All lions are elephants is a possibility. Some cheetahs are lions.
STATEMENTS:
A) All lions are cheetahs. All cheetahs are tigers. No tiger is elephant.
B) Some lions are cheetahs. No cheetah is tiger. No tiger is elephant.
C) Some lions are cheetahs. All cheetahs are tigers. No cheetah is elephant.
D) All lions are cheetahs. Some cheetah is tiger. No cheetah is elephant.
E) None
Option B

You will have to check all the options to find out that which statements make both the conclusions follow.
