Reasoning Quiz for SBI PO Mains 2015 - Set 16


Hello and welcome to ExamPundit. Here is a set of Reasoning Quiz based on Statement and Argument, Cause and Effect, Statement and Assumption, Statement and Inference.


Directions (Q. 1-3): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions that follows:

“Owing to lack of diesel options, once a market leader, Honda, is likely to discontinue its executive sedan Civic as it shifts its focus to compact cars like Brio and Jazz in the Indian market.”
These questions are based on the information given above and the sentences labelled (A), (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F) as given below:
(A) Compact cars like Brio and Jazz will compete in the Indian car market.
(B) Most of the Indian customers prefer non-diesel cars.
(C) The product of Honda’s competitor, Suzuki’s Swift Dzire, has recorded a good sale of its diesel variant as compared to non-diesel ones during the last three quarters.
(D) Most of the Indian customers prefer diesel cars over non-diesel ones.
(E) The price of petrol is relatively high as compared to diesel.
(F) Since Indian customers are obsessed with the mileage of any vehicle, be it 2-wheeler or 4-wheeler, it becomes very difficult for them to take decisions while buying.


1. Which of the statements numbered (A), (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F), if true, could strengthen the statement?
1) Only A
2) Both A and F
3) Only E
4) C, D and E
5) Only D




Solutions -Any statement that goes in favour of diesel will strengthen the statement.



2. Which of the statements numbered (A), (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F) can be concluded from the statement?
1) Only A
2) Only E
3) Only D
4) Only C
5) Only B




Solutions -It can be clearly concluded that people prefer diesel cars over non-diesel ones. 




3. Which of the statements numbered (A), (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F) has been assumed in the facts/information given in the statement? (An assumption is something supposed or taken for granted.)
1) Only A
2) Only E
3) Only B
4) Both D and E
5) Only F





Solutions - Since Honda is shifting its focus towards these compact cars, the basic assumption is that ‘Brio’ and ‘Jazz’ will complete in the Indian car market.




Directions (Q. 4-5): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions which follow.
“Even as opposition parties tore into the government’s big-bang decision to further liberalise in the insurance sector, industry players have shown a muted reaction.”

1) Only A
2) Only B
3) Only F
4) Only E
5) Only D





Solutions -Since it has been mentioned that opposition parties tore into the government’s decision, it can be inferred that they are not comfortable with the government’s decision
