Mixed Reasoning Questions for Prelims Exams – Set 9

Reasoning Questions asked in prelims Exams – SBI, IBPS, RBI, NIACL, NICL, BoB, And other exams.

Directions (1-2): Point A is 7 m north of point B. Point F is 7 m north of point E. Point E is 3 m east of point D. Point G is 17 m south of point H. Point C is 8 m east of point B. Point D is 5 m south of point C. Point F is 6 m west of point G. Point H is 8 m east of point I.

  1. Find distance IA.
    A) 17 m 
    B) 10 m
    C) 12 m
    D) 15 m 
    E) Cannot be determined
    View Answer
     Option D
    Solution:

    Vertical distance = HG – [AB – (FE – CD)] = 17 – [7 – (7-5)] = 12 m

    Horizontal distance = BC + [DE – (IH – FG)] = 8 + [3 – (8 – 6)] = 9
    So IA = √(122 + 92) = 15 m
  2. A person starts from Point C in south direction. After walking for 8 m he took 2 turns to reach point G. Find the total distance covered by him.
    A) 24 m
    B) 25 m
    C) 27 m
    D) 26 m
    E) 28 m
    View Answer
    Option C
    He took 2 turns to reach to point G, so after 8 m south he took a left then, walked (3+6) = 9 m and then turned left again to reach point G (here he covered (3+7) = 10 m)
    So total distance = 8 + 9 + 10 = 27 m

Directions (3-4): P is brother of D whose son is F. J is brother of A whose daughter is B. R is father of P. P is father of G who is brother of B. M is married to R.

  1. How is M related to B?

    B) Maternal Grand Father
    C) Maternal Grand Mother
    D) Grand Mother
    E) Cannot be determined

    A) Sister-in-law
    B) Brother
    C) Brother-in-law
    D) Sister
    E) Cannot be determined
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:
    P is brother of D. So D is female (since M has 1 daughter and one son). So if E is married to D, he is brother-in-law of P.

Directions (5-6): Six friends – A, B, C, D, E and F have all different heights. D is taller than C. C is taller than only 2 friends. B is shorter than A but not the shortest. F is taller than D and A both. E is shorter than C. Height of A is 157 cm. The one who is shortest is 145 cm.

  1. If height of E is less than 150 cm, find the total height of E and A.
    A) 287 cm
    B) 316 cm
    C) 308 cm
    D) 302 cm
    E) 296 cm
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:
    The order is – F, D/A, A/D, C, B, E (in descending order of height)
    There are 2 people shorter than C. B is shorter than A and E is shorter than C, So B and E both are shorter than C. Since B is not the shortest, so E is the shortest. E = 145 cm, A = 157 cm
  2. If A is taller than D, then how many friends are taller than D?
    A) None
    B) 1
    C) 2
    D) 3

    D) Three
    E) More than three
    View Answer

Direction (9-10): Relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. Find if the conclusions also follow or not.

  1. A > B ≥ C = D < E; F > G = H ≥ E
    Conclusions:
    I. G > B
    II. B ≥ G
    A) only I follows
    B) only II follows
    C) either I or II follows
    D) neither I nor II follow
    E) both I and II follow
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    G ≥ E > C ≤ B
    So no relationship between G and B. So either G > B or G ≤ B. Also either G < B or G ≥ B
     
  2. A > B ≥ C = D; G = H ≥ J; G = E ≤ D > F
    Conclusions:
    I. J < B
    II. J = B
    A) only I follows
    B) only II follows
    C) either I or II follows
    D) neither I nor II follow
    E) both I and II follow
    View Answer
    Option C
    Solution:

    J ≤ G ≤ D ≤ B so J ≤ B, so either J < B or J = B
