10. How many sisters does D have?

II. K and T are brothers of E.

Answers:

1. (e) If the government has made a plan to provide relief to the farmers, it must be assuming that the plan can be executed. The objective can’t be fulfilled without I and II. Hence, both I and II are implicit.

2. (d) The principal must be assuming that the students will abide by the instruction. Note that if a person instructs someone or a group of persons, the former assumes that the latter will abide by it. Hence, both I and II are not implicit.

3. (a) The initiative taken by the railway authority has been aimed at making the service-customer friendly. Hence, I is implicit. II may nor may not be an assumption. Hence, II is not implicit.

4. (b) From the advertisement, it is obvious the advertiser must be assuming II. Hence, II is implicit. I goes rather against the statement. Hence, I is not implicit.

5. (d) The step taken by municipal corporation has been aimed at good entertainment for the local residents during the holidays. The municipal corporation must be assuming that local residents may participate in the fun fair with great fanfare. Since I and II go against the abvoe assumption both I and II are not implicit.

6. (d) I alone is not sufficient as it lacks the details of R and M. II alone is not sufficient as it lacks details of N and T. Even both I and II together are not sufficient because the comparative details of N, T and R are still lacking

7. (e) From both I and II, Total number of children in the row = 12 + 4 + 8 – 1 = 23. Hence both I and II together are sufficient.

8. (e) Codes of the words are not necessarily in the same order as the words are. Hence neither I alone nor II alone is sufficient to answer the question. Again, from I and II we get that the code for ‘red’ is ‘da’.

9. (c)

10. (d) From I, we do not get information regarding the number of brothers or sisters of D. Hence, I alone is not sufficient. II lacks information regarding D. Hence, II alone is not sufficient. Using both the statements together, we do not get the information regarding the gender of E. Nor is there any connection between the two statements. Hence, both statements even together are not sufficient.
