The service manager Cannot make an acceptable roster that assigns:

A. P to sector I and V to sector III
B. R to sector I and T to sector II
C. S to sector I and N to sector II
D. N to sector II and P to sector III

#### SOLUTION

Solution : A

As per option (A)the sector III will then have two special training technicians (N cannot go to III and every sector should have atleast one experienced person) .So the conditions given of having atleast one special training technician on all three teams won’t be fulfilled as there are only 3 such technicians .

Moreover, with the above setup, R  & S cannot go together.

If T is assigned to sector III, which of the following must be true?

A. P is assigned to sector I
B. R is assigned to sector II
C. T is N’s partner
D. N is V’s partner

#### SOLUTION

Solution : D

We know that R and S go together and N cannot go to III. We can conclude that P goes to III and N and V is a team. The following cases are possible.

Sector NamePerson with special trainingPerson with 5 years work exIV/R(S)N/R(S)IIR(S)/VR(S)/NIIITP

If P is assigned to sector II, which of the following must be true?

A. T is assigned to sector I
B. S is assigned to sector III
C. V is assigned to sector II
D. V is assigned to sector III

#### SOLUTION

Solution : B

Before solving the set we need to note that R is trained and also has the experience whereas S is not trained and does not have experience. From conditions (i) and (ii) we can conclude that R and S will always go together.

S will go to sector III, because if P goes to Sector II, only the following setup is possible

Sector NamePerson with special trainingPerson with 5 years work exINT/VIIPT/VIIIRS

If one day’s routine is A, B, V, S and T, each of the following could be the next day’s routine, except:

A. B, C, V, S, T
B. B, S, U, V, D
C. V, S, T, U, D
D. none of these

#### SOLUTION

Solution : A

A days routine must include exactly three of the exercises of the previous day. But in option (a) ,it contains four exercises from the set given in the question

Which of the following is true for any permissible routine?

A. A cannot be the third exercise
B. B cannot be the third exercise
C. C cannot be the fourth exercise
D. T cannot be the fourth exercise

#### SOLUTION

Solution : C

If C is the fourth exercise then U will be the fifth as per condition (iii). But as per condition (iv) only D or T can be the fifth exercise. Hence option (c).

If the pupil chooses C and V for the first day’s routine, which of the following could be the other three exercises chosen?

A. A, S, T
B. B, D, U
C. B, S, U
D. S, D,U

#### SOLUTION

Solution : D

If C is selected ,then U must be selected.So option A(a)is eliminated.Here, (b) cannot be the correct answer because if B is done then S would be compulsory as per the given conditions.Only D or T can be the fifth exercise. So atleast one among them has to be selected and hence option C is wrong. Option (d) satisfies all the conditions and hence the answer.

If C is the third exercise in a routine, which of the following cannot be the second exercise?

A. B
B. D
C. S
D. T

#### SOLUTION

Solution : A

If C is third, U has to be the fourth exercise. We can have only D or T as the fifth exercice.In such as case, B cannot be the second exercise as we cannot accommodate S in any slot after B.This goes against contion (i). Hence option (a).

If Socrates spent exactly eight days in the various cities of Gujarat, then which one of the following cannot be true?

A. He visited exactly two cities in Maharashtra.
B. He visited exactly two cities in Uttar Pradesh
C. He visited exactly two cities in Gujarat.
D. He visited more cities in Uttar Pradesh than in Maharashtra.

#### SOLUTION

Solution : C

Socrates spends 8 days in Gujarat which leaves him with 6 days.As per the conditions,he has to visit 6 cities.If he visits exactly two cities in Gujarat,he has to visit 4 cities from the other two cities which requires atleast 8 days and that is not possible.Hence C cannot be true.

If the city of Ahmedabad is in Gujarat and Socrates spent as many days as possible in Ahmedabad and as few days as possible in each of the other cities that he visited, then which one of the following must be true?

A. Socrates could not visit any other city in Gujarat.
B. Socrates could visit four cities in Uttar Pradesh.
C. Socrates could spend six days in Ahmedabad.
D. Socrates could not spend more than four days in Maharashtra.

#### SOLUTION

Solution : B

Total no. of cities that need to be visited except Ahmedabad = 5. Least possible no. of days of visit to these 5 Cities = 10. Thus, maximum possible no. of days in Ahmedabad = 4. Hence, the possibility is 1 city in Gujarat, 4 in UP and 1 in Maharashtra.
