Critical Reasoning

Directions (10): Below are given two statements (I) and (II). These statements may be either independent causes or may be effects of independent causes or a common cause. One of these statements may be the effect of another statement. Read both the statement carefully and decide which of the following answer choice correctly depicts the relationship between these two statements.

11) Statements:

(I)Â The local administration has started various training programs to improve the literacy rate of the area.

(II)Â There are well trained and experienced doctors in a government hospital who save the lives of patients.

A) Statement I is the cause and statement II is its effect

B) Statement II is the cause and statement I is its effect

C) Both the statements I and II are independent causes

D) Both the statements I and II are effects of independent causes

E) Both statement I and II are effects of some common causes

Directions (1-5) :

• P, who sits third to left of one who receives 52 calls, sits at a gap of one who receives 36 calls. S sits third to left of one who receives 36 calls, who doesnâ€™t sit adjacent to one who receives 52 calls, that means we have two possible place for P, in case (1) P sits at corner and in case (2) P sits at edge.

Based on above given information we have:

Again we have:

• Only two people sit between S and V, who doesnâ€™t receives 36 calls.
• V, who doesnâ€™t receives 56 calls, sits third to one who receives 42 calls.
• W, who neither sits adjacent to P nor sits adjacent to S, sits third to left of the one who receives 32 calls.
• P neither receives 32 calls nor sits adjacent to the one who receives 48 calls, that means we have four different place for W, in case (1a) W sits immediate left of V, in case (1b) W receives 36 calls, in case (2a) W sits immediate left of V, in case (2b) W receives 36 calls.

Based on above given information we have:

Again, we have:

• U, who neither receives 42 calls nor sits adjacent to one who receives 64 calls, sits immediate left of Q.
• Only two person sits between Q and T, who doesnâ€™t receives 42 calls, that means in case (1a)& case (2a) U receives 36 calls and in case (1b) & (2b) U receives 52 calls.
• R, neither sits at corner nor sits adjacent to one who receives 72 calls but sits at a gap of two from one who receives 56 calls, that means case (2a) & case (2b) is not valid, in case (1a) R receives 52 calls, in case (1b) R receives 42 calls and as V doesnâ€™t receive 56 calls thus Q receives 56 calls.

Based on above information we have:

Again, we have:

• Difference in number of calls received by S and R is 4, that means case (1b) is not valid and in case (1a) S receives 48 calls.
• As, V doesnâ€™t receive 72 call, that means V receives 64 calls.

Based on above given information we have:

Case (1b) is not valid as difference in number of calls received by S and R is 4.

Directions (6-10) :

T > M â€“ 60kg > R > Q > F > NÂ  > S

M+Q=115 kg=>60+Q=115 kg=>Q=55kg

Weight of R is 55 kg to 60 kg.

T > M – 60kg > R >Â  Q > F > N > S

From statement I:

P is 3rdÂ from bottom and Q is 6thÂ from the top.

G is in middle of P and Q.

From statement II:

P is 7 places above G.

Q is 5thÂ from the bottom and 3 places below P.

There will be two persons in between Q and G and Below G there will be one person. It should be mentioned correctly in the diagram.)

Thus, by using either statement I or statement II we can get Gâ€™s position.
