IBPS EXAM Guru

1 . Directions (1-2) : Study the following information to answer the given questions:

Twelve people are sitting in two parallel rows containing six people each such that they are equidistant from each other. In row 1: P, Q, R, S, T and V are seated and all of them are facing South. In row 2: A, B, C, D, E and F are seated and all of them are facing North. Therefore, in the given seating arrangement, each member seated in a row faces another member of the other row

S sits third to the right of Q. Either S or Q sits at an extreme end of the line. The one who faces Q sits second to the right of E. Two people sit between B and F. Neither B nor F sits at an extreme end of the line. The immediate neighbour of B faces the person who sits third to the left of P. R and T are immediate neighbours. C sits second to the left of A. T does not face the immediate neighbour of D.

Q: Which of the following is true regarding T?

 A.   F faces T B.   V is an immediate neighbour of T C.   F faces the one who is second to the right of T D.   T sits at one of the extreme ends of the line

8 . Directions (8-10): Study the following information to answer the given questions:

A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement. (All the numbers are two-digit numbers and are arranged as per some logic based on the value of the number.)

Input : win 56 32 93 bat for 46 him 28 11 give chance

Step I : 93 56 32 bat for 46 him 28 11 give chance win

Step II : 11 93 56 32 bat for 46 28 give chance win him

Step III : 56 11 93 32 bat for 46 28 chance win him give

Step IV : 28 56 11 93 32 bat 46 chance win him give for

Step V : 46 28 56 11 93 32 bat win him give for chance

Step VI : 32 46 28 56 11 93 win him give for chance bat

Step VI is the last step of the arrangement of the above input.

As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate steps for the given input.

Input for the questions:

Input: fun 89 at the 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68

(All the numbers given in the arrangement are two-digit numbers.)

$Q.$ Which of the following would be step II?

 A.   89 fun at 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68 the B.   35 53 28 68 16 89 the here fun camp base at C.   16 89 at fun 28 camp base 35 53 68 the here D.   None of these

1 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : 2 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : There is a difference of one in all the rest
3 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : From statement I:Q > R, S > T > PQ is the heaviest.From statement II:Q > R > S, T, PQ is the heaviest
4 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : 5 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation :  6 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : From statement I:If the time is 9 o'clock now then after 30 minutes ie at 9:30 the angle between the minute hand and hour hand cannot be 90. So, now the time is not 9 o'clock.From statement II:If the time now is 9 o'clock then 15 min before the hour and minutes hand of the clock can never coincide with each other. Instead they will have an angle of 7.5. So, the time now is not 9 o'clock.

 Answer : Option D Explanation : \N
8 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : The word and number arrangement machine rearranges the input with the logic that in step I, it shifts the largest number to the left-most place and the last word coming in English alphabetical series to the rightmost place. In step II, it shifts the smallest number to the leftmost place and the next word (in reverse alphabetical order) to the rightmost.In step III 2nd largest number is shifted to the leftmost place and so on.Input:fun 89 at the 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68Step I: 89 fun at 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68 theStep II:16 89 fun at 28 base camp 35 53 68 the hereStep III:68 16 89 at 28 base camp 35 53 the here funStep IV:28 68 16 89 at base 35 53 the here fun campStep V:53 28 68 16 89 at 35 the here fun camp baseStep VI:35 53 28 68 16 89 the here fun camp base at
