CAT 2017: Logical Reasoning Question 2 Venkatesan IIMB Alumnus

A study to look at the early teaming of rural kids was carried out in a number of villages spanning three states, chosen from the North East (NE), the West (W) and the South (S). 50 four- year old kids each were sampled from each of the 150 villages from NE, 250 villages from W arid 200 villages from S. It was found that of the 30000 surveyed feds 55% studied in primary schools run by government (G), 37% in private schools (P) white the remaining 8% did not go to school The kids surveyed were further divided into two groups based on whether their mothers dropped out of school before completing primary education or not. The table below gives the number of kids in different types of schools for mothers who dropped out- of school before completing primary education:

4200 4200 5100 13500 300 1200 300 1800 Total 5000 7300 5700 18000 NE 500 1900 300 2700 Total It is also known that: 1. 2. 3. In S, 60% of the surveyed kids were m G. Moreover, in S, all surveyed kids whose mothers had completed primary education were in school In NE, among the O kids, 50% had mothers who had dropped out before completing primary education The number of kids in G in NE was the same as the number of kids in G in W

Question No.:1 What percentage of kids from S were studying in P? A) 37% B) 6% C) 79% D) 56%

Question No.: 2 Among the kids in W whose mothers had completed primary education, how many were not in school? A) 300 B) 1200 C) 1050 D) 1500

Question No.: 3 In a follow up survey of the same kids two years later, it was found that all the kids were now in school. Of the kids who were not in school earlier, in one region, 25% were in G now, whereas the rest were enrolled in P; in the second region, all such kids were in G now; while in the third region, 50% of such kids had now joined G while the rest had joined P. As a result, in all three regions put together, 50% of the kids who were earlier out of school had joined G. It was also seen that no surveyed kid had changed schools. What number of the surveyed kids now were in G in W? A) 6000 B) 5250 C) 6750 D) 6300

CAT 2017: Logical Reasoning Question 3 Venkatesan IIMB Alumnus

Question No.:17 There are 21 employees working in a division, out of whom 10 are special-skilled employees (SE) and the remaining are regular skilled employees (RE). During the next five months, the division has to complete five projects every month. Out of the 25 projects, 5 projects are "challenging", while the remaining ones are "standard". Each of the challenging projects has to be completed in different months. Every month, five teams - T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5, work on one project each. T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 are allotted the challenging project in the first, second, third, fourth and fifth month, respectively. The team assigned the challenging project has one more employee than the rest. In the first month, T1 has one more SE than T2, T2 has one more SE than T3, T3 has one more SE than T4, and T4 has one more SE than T5. Between two successive months, the composition of the teams changes as follows: a. The team allotted the challenging project, gets two SE from the team which was allotted the challenging project in the previous month. In exchange, one RE is shifted from the former team to the latter team. b. After the above exchange, if T1 has any SE and T5 has any RE, then one SE is shifted from T1 to T5, and one RE is shifted from T 5 to T1. Also, if T2 has any SE and T4 has any RE, then one SE is shifted from T2 to T4, and one RE is shifted from T 4 to T2

Applicants for the doctoral programme of Ambi Institute of Engineering (AIE) and Bambi Institute of Engineering (BIE) have to appear for a Common Entrance Test (CET). The test has three sections: Physics (P), Chemistry (C), and Maths (M). Among those appearing for CET, those at or above the 80th percentile in at least two sections, and at or above the 90th percentile overall, are selected for Advanced Entrance Test (AET) conducted by AIE.

No one is below the 80th percentile in all 3 sections. 2. 150 are at or above the 80th percentile in exactly two sections. 3. The number of candidates at or above the 80th percentile only in P is the same as the number of candidates at or above the 80th percentile only in C. The same is the number of candidates at or above the 80th percentile only in M. 4. Number of candidates below 80th percentile in P: Number of candidates below 80th percentile in C: Number of candidates below 80th percentile in M-4:2:1.
