Verbal Ability & Logical Reasoning


1.

Students from four sections of a class accompanied


by respective class teachers planned to go for a
field trip. There were nineteen people in all.
However, on the scheduled day one of the four
teachers and a few students could not join the rest.
Given, below are some statements about the group
of people who ultimately left for the trip.

One day, his subordinate Bhonsle requested that Kale, a


project manager, be transferred to the Chennai office from
the Mumbai office. In Chennai, Kale would work alone as a
researcher. Bhonsle gave the following reasons for his
request Kale is known to frequently fight with his
colleagues. Kale is conscientious and dedicated only when
working alone.
He is friendly with seniors but refuses to work with
colleagues, in a team. He cannot accept criticism and feels
hostile and rejected. He is over bearing and is generally a
bad influence on the team. Marathe called upon Gore,
another project manager and sought further information on
Kale. Gore recalled that a former colleague, Lakhote (who
was also Kales former boss) had made a few remarks on his
appraisal report about Kale. In his opinion, Kale was not fit
for further promotion as he was emotionally unstable to
work in groups though he had seven years of work
experience. Lakhote had described Kale as too authoritative
to work under anyone. Lakhote had further told Gore that
Kale had an ailing wife and an old mother, who does not
want to stay with his wife.

There is a lot of interest in the first five ranks for


Class XI students. One student guessed the rank
order as Ankita, Bhagyashree, Chanchal,
Devroopa and Esha. Later upon announcement of
the results, it was found that not only did he get
each student out off her true position, none of the
students in his ranking correctly followed her
immediate predecessor.
Another student guessed Devroopa, Ankita,
Esha, Chanchal and Bhagyashree. Even his guess
was wrong. It was found that he had got two
positions correct and two students in his ranking

and choose the best alternative.


Professor Vijya, the chairperson of the Faculty Academic
Committee (FAC), was trying to understand the
implications of decisions taken by the Student Placement
Committee (SPC) on placement issues.
It was alleged that Biswajit, a final year student, inflated his
grades in his bio data that was sent to the recruiters. The
President of SPC requested the FAC to debar Biswajit from
the campus recruitment process. When the matter was
brought up for discussion in FAC, one of the professors
remarked that Biswajit too should be allowed to defend
himself. When Biswajit arrived for the meeting the situation
became even more challenging.
Biswajit raised the issue that many other students who had
misrepresented grades to get coveted jobs had gone
scot-free. He alleged that these students were close to the
President of SPC and therefore no action was taken against
them. He stated that somebody has deliberately
manipulated his grades in the bio data. This allegation
confused the members and it was decided to adjourn the
meeting. Vijya was to decide on the next course of action.

Which of the following could be the most unlikely


reason for Vardarajans declining involvement in
the workplace?
(a) Vardarajan does not find the work challenging
enough as he has already achieved the best
performance award
(b) Others in the organisation have been trying to pull
him down, since he was declared best performer
(c) Vardarajan was not promoted after his superlative
performance, while another colleague, Sundararajan,
was promoted although he was not as good a
performer as Vardarajan
(d) After putting in lots of effort for the superlative
performance, Vardarajan felt burnt out
(e) Vardarajan was appreciated by his bosses for his
achievement last year

9.

If you were Vijya, what in your opinion would be


the most appropriate action?
(a) Debar Biswajit and the President of SPC from the
placement process as they have failed to uphold the
rules of the SPC
(b) Suspend Biswajit and the President of SPC
(c) Constitute a fact finding committee to investigate
the matter and ask them to submit a report to you
within a weeks time
(d) Apprise the corporate recruiters of the situation and
assure them that corrective actions will be taken
(e) Both c and d

Vardarajan did not find his work challenging


enough, given below are some steps that could be
taken to motivate him.

It was the end of performance review cycle for the year


2012, when you asked your subordinates about any
problems they were facing. Natrajan told you that an
important member of his team, Vardarajan, who had also
won the best performance award for the year 2011, was not
taking interest in work. Despite Natrajans counseling, no
change was noticed in Vardarajan, rather his attitude
deteriorated. You had also received such information from
other employees. You had not interfered hoping that
Natrajan, an experienced hand, would be able to solve the
problem. But, now that Natrajan himself brought this to your
notice, you decided to call Vardarajan and counsel him.

Directions (Q. Nos. 13-24) Read the following passages carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Passage 1
There are important differences in the situation models constructed for narrative and expository texts. A
situation model for a narrative text is likely to refer to the characters in it and their emotional states, the
setting, the action and sequence of events. A situation model for a scientific text, on the other hand, is likely to
concentrate on the components of a system and their relationships, the events and processes that occur during
the working of the system and the uses of the system. Moreover, scientific discourse is rooted in an
understanding of cause and effect that differs from our everyday understanding.
Our everyday understanding which is reflected in narrative text, sees cause and effect in terms of goal
structures. This is indeed the root of our superstitious behaviour - we (not necessarily consciously) attribute
purposefulness to almost everything! But this approach is something we have to learn not to apply to scientific
problems (and it requires a lot of learning). This is worth emphasising: science texts assume a different way of
explaining events from the way we are accustomed to use - a way that must be learned.
In general, narrative text (and ordinary thinking) is associated with goal structures and scientific text with
logical structures. However, its not quite as clear-cut a distinction as all that. While the physical sciences
certainly focus on logical structure, both the biological sciences and technology often use goal structures to
frame their discussions. Nevertheless, as a generalisation, we may say that logical thinking informs experts in
these areas, while goal structures are what novices focus on.
This is consistent with another intriguing finding.

In a comparison of two types of texts - one discussing human technology and other discussing forces of nature,
it was found that technological texts were more easily processed and remembered. Indications were that
different situation models were constructed -a goal-oriented representation for the technological text and a
causal chain representation for the force of nature text. The evidence also suggested that people found it much
easier to make inferences (whether about agents or objects) when human agents were involved. Having objects
as the grammatical subject was clearly more difficult to process.
There are several reasons why goal-oriented, human-focused discourse might be more easily processed
(understood, remembered) than texts describing inanimate objects linked in a cause-effect chain and they come
down to the degree of similarity to narrative. As a rule of thumb, we may say that to the degree that scientific
text resembles a story, the more easily it will be processed. Inference making is crucial to comprehension and
the construction of a situation, because a text never explains every single word and detail, every logical or
causal connection.
In the same way that narrative and expository texts have different situation models, they also involve a
different pattern of inference making. e.g. Narratives involve a lot of predictive inferences, expository texts
typically involve a lot of backward inferences. The number of inferences required may also vary.
A study found that readers made nine times as many inferences in stories as they did in expository texts. This
may be because there are more inferences required in narratives. Narratives involve the richly complex world
of human beings, as opposed to some rigidly specified aspect of it, described according to a strict protocol. But
it may also reflect the fact that readers dont make all (or indeed, anywhere near) the inferences needed in
expository text. And indeed, the evidence indicates that students are poor at noticing coherence gaps (which
require inferences).

13.

15.

Which of these statements is not associated with the


situation models?
(a) Situation model refers to characters and their
emotional states
(b) Situation model refers to the setting, the action and
the sequence of events
(c) Situation model concentrates on the components of a
system and their relationships
(d) It does not show the events and processes that occur
during the working of a system

14.

Which is the most optimal reason for easy


processing of the scientific text?
(a) Scientific text deals with the phenomenon that are
general to the normal course of life
(b) Scientific text when resembles with that of a story
then it procures lot more sense to the processing
(c) Scientific texts involve a different pattern of
inference making which is possessed by the
experts only
(d) Predictive and backward inferences make the
scientific text more processed

In the comparison of two types of texts - one


discussing human technology and the other
discussing forces of nature, which is the best
statement to support the view?

16.

How does inferences affect the processing of a


scientific text?
(a) Inference gives the readers an idea of the rich and
complex human world
(b) It lets the readers away from the definite protocol
of an expository text
(c) Inference arms you with the understanding of
coherency
(d) All of the above

(a) Logical thinking informs experts


(b) Goal-structured thinking may be done by the novices
even
(c) Technological texts are processed easily and
remembered
(d) Force of nature needs a causal chain

Passage 2
Endowed with significant natural resources, including ample fertile land, regular rainfall and mineral deposits,
it is thought that Uganda could feed all of Africa if it was commercially farmed. The economy of Uganda has
great potential and it appeared Uganda subsequently began implementing economic policies designed to
restore price stability and sustainable balance of payments, improve capacity utilisation, rehabilitate
infrastructure, restore producer incentives through proper price policies and improve resource mobilisation and
allocation in the public sector. These policies produced positive results. Inflation, which ran at 240% in 1987
and 42% in June 1992, was 5.4% for fiscal year 1995-96 and 7.3% in 2003 poised for rapid economic growth and
development.
The industrial sector is being rehabilitated to resume production of building and construction materials, such
as cement, reinforcing rods, corrugated roofing sheets and paint.
Domestically produced consumer goods include plastics, soap, cork and soft drinks. Major cement
manufacturers like Tororo Cement Limited caters to the need of building and construction material
consumers across East Africa.

Uganda will host its first biggest international Mining Conference in the first week of October as the country
tries to revive the industry to its full potential. The Uganda Chamber of Mines and Petroleum (UCMP), the
body that links investors to government departments will hold the Mineral Wealth Conference from 1st to 2nd
October, drawing participants from East Africa and beyond.
In late 2012, the Government of Uganda was taken to court over Value Added Tax (VAT) that it placed on
goods and services purchased by a foreign oil company operating in the country, Tullow Oil. The court case will
be heard at an international court based in the United States and could have serious ramifications for Uganda
if lost; Ugandas membership at the World Bank depends on its maintenance of multi-lateral investments
treaties and associated guarantees.
There is also a possibility that the country could not be sanctioned any financial help by the World Bank if
found in breach of trade and the Uganda Government insists that Tullow cannot claim taxes on supplies as
recoverable costs before oil production starts.
Sources from within the government reveal that the main concern at present is the manner in which millions
of dollars have been lost in the past decade, money that could allegedly have stayed in Uganda for investment
in the public sector; a Global Financial Integrity Report recently revealed that illicit money flows from Uganda
between 2001 and 2012 totaled $ 680 million.
The investment agreements signed Tullow Oil is being represented in the court case by Kampala Associated
Advocates, whose founder is Elly Karuhanga, the President of Tullow Ugandas. A partner at Kampala
Associated Advocates, Peter Kabatsi, was also Ugandas Solicitor General between 1990 and 2002 and he has
denied claims that he negotiated contracts with foreign oil firms during his time in this role. The Uganda
Government has yet to see any result from another tax dispute involving the Canadian oil firm Tullow Oil and
British company Heritage Oil, this dispute dates back to Heritage Oils sale of rights to two oil blocks in
Ugandas Lake Albert region to Tullow Oil in July 2010. Uganda claims that Heritage Oil owes USD $ 435
million in capital gains tax arising from this sale, a claim that Heritage is currently disputing in a
London-based court.

Passage 3
Business is changing and with it elite business, education is also changing. As a recent article in the New York
Times suggests, MBA students in the data age are seeking something more than traditional corporate
strategy and finance. Increasingly, the business school brand seems to have fallen under the sway of Silicon
Valley. With MBA applicants reportedly shrinking by 1% in 2013 and applicants to graduate programmes in
computer science and mathematics growing by 11%, the article makes the case that business educators will
need to seek out inventive ways of keeping a pace with technology.

More and more applicants to business school now possess undergraduate training in science, technology,
engineering or mathematics. David B Yoffie, a professor at Harvard Business School (HBS) has observed an
extraordinary change in the talent pool, estimating that one-third of HBSs incoming class of 900 MBA
students have programming experience. Cornell Tech in New York City is one example of a top-ranked school
attempting to hybridise business with computer science. Business schools (B-schools) are a legacy industry
that is trying to adapt to a digital world, explained as associate Dean at the school. At the core of Cornell
Techs innovative curriculum is a recognition that data-driven skills now hold relevance across industries.
A similar outlook has been adopted at other top-ranked programmes in the United States with the introduction
of dual-degree programmes, entrepreneurship centres, start-up competitions and digitally focused courses. Of
the 150 elective courses offered at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (SGSB) this year, for instance,
28% are new. We are responding to the best practices we see in the outside world like A/B testing and working
with massive data sets, commented Stanford GSB Dean, Garth Saloner. We are adapting.
Maintaining a competitive edge in the digital economy may demand a pivot toward hard technical skills, but
as Greg Pass, Chief Entrepreneurial Officer at Cornell Tech and former chief technology officer at Twitter,
observes, demand also exists for a more integrated, broader view of things. Pass added that interdisciplinary
MBA programmes such as the one Cornell Tech offers are well positioned to nurture people with those wider
horizons, technical know-how and quick business reflexes, according to the Times article.
With MBA admissions offices releasing second-round interview invitations in a few weeks, we thought we
should explore an issue that brings endless paranoia to business school candidates scheduling interviews.
Many programmes will give applicants a significant window in which they schedule their interview.
So, does scheduling an interview early convey that you are being too aggressive and do not have any other
irons in the fire or instead that you are eager to act and impress the admission committee? Does scheduling an
interview later imply that you are less interested in the programmes or rather that you are highly sought after
and are interviewing at multiple schools?
The reality is that scheduling your interview to occur during the early days of the schools set time frame is
really not different from scheduling it near the end. Neither option confers any advantage or disadvantage (nor
does any day in between). The MBA admission committees recognise that you like all candidates, are busy and
that your schedule is in flux as a result of work, community and personal commitments. The committees focus
on the interviews themselves, not on when they are scheduled. So pick a date that works for you a day and/or
time when you know you can be comfortable and relaxed, not distracted and start preparing.

(d) All of the above

(a) Picking a date earlier means you are too eager and a

(b) Picking an earlier or posterior date does not have

10 yards

Sachin = b + g + d = 30 + 10 + 40 = 80
Sourav = b + g + f = 30 + 10 + 20 = 60
Dhoni = d + g + f + e = 40 + 10 + 20 + + 20 = 90

10 yards

All cricketers = 10 Sachin + Sourav


= b + g = 40 (30 + 10)

Sachin + Dhoni = g + d = 10 + 40 = 50

Then, turned his left in the direction of West and walked


10 yards. Now, he turned 45 to his right and walked 50 yards
straight in the same direction. Now, the direction of a man with
