21 .A power unit is there by the bank of the river 750 mts. A cable is made from power unit to power a plant opposite to that of the river at 1500mts. The cost of the cable below water is Rs. 15/- per meter ansd cost of cable on the bank is Rs. 12/- per meter. Then where they will cut ?

22. There were 2 series as well.

23. A Venn diagram & questions on it were asked in %. Some students just went for simple figures given but actually we have to take out % of it in almost all questions. SO read the quests carefully.

Critical Reasoning:

The passages were written repeatedly before asking each question. I think that was a trap to waste some time of the examinees before they realize the actual thing.

A) One syllogisms kinda passage:

All reds r greens

All blues r white

No yellow is a white.

Some blues r reds

Etc.

& then questions were asked like: which of the following is true: a red can be a blue but not yellow. And like that

B)  The red & brown marriage passage:

There are 2 groups named Brown and red. They can?t marry in the same group. If the husband or wife dies then the person will convert to their own group. If a person is married then the husband will have to change his group to his wife?s group. The child will own the mothers group.

From these a set of 4 questions were given like:

1.If the person doesn?t change his group even after he is a widower or divorcee then which of the following is necessarily true? Some sentences for checking here.

2.Brown?s daughter is red (False)

3.  If a person is red. Then his/her mother?s brother belong to which group if he is married
