**1. Is it 5 o’clock?**

**I.**I’m looking at

my watch. From this moment on, the hour hand will take exactly twice as long as

the minute hand to reach the number six.

**II.**I’m looking

at my watch. From this moment on, the hour hand will take exactly three times

longer than the minute hand to reach the number six.

**2. In which month is**

my birthday?

**I.**I will

celebrate my birthday in a month which begins on a Friday and ends on a Friday

too.

**II.**I will

celebrate my birthday in the current month. The result of adding the date of

the last Monday of last month and the date of the first Thursday of next month is

38.

**3. Manisha and Ruchi**

a constant

**speed. How much faster is**

one car going than the other?

one car going than the other?

**I.**The distances

from A to B, B to C, and C to A are the same.

**II.**The cars

cross for the first time at point A, the second time at point B, the third time

at point C, and the fourth time again at point A.

**5. What was the score**

in each match of a three-team tournament in which the three teams (who

and 1 point respectively? 2 points are

awarded for a win

**and 1 for a draw.**

**I.**Each team

played once against each of the two other teams.

**II.**Each team

scored one goal.

**Directions (Q. 6-10): In making decisions about important questions, it**

is desirable to be able to distinguish between “strong” arguments and “weak”

arguments insofar as they relate to the question. “Strong” arguments are those

which are both important and directly related to the question. “Weak” arguments

are those which are of minor importance and also may not be directly related to

the question or may be related to a trivial aspect of the question. Each

question below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to

decide which of the arguments is a “strong” argument and which is a “weak”

argument.

**Give answer**

1) if only argument I is “strong”.

2) if only argument II is “strong”.

3) if either I or II is “strong”.

4) if neither I nor II is “strong”.

5) if both I and II are “strong”.

6.

Should Antipiracy Bill be brought in the Parliament?

**Statement**:Should Antipiracy Bill be brought in the Parliament?

**Arguments**:

**I.**Yes. This will

help the film industry to fight against piracy as a result of which the

industry will be financially strong.

**II.**No. We have

already provisions such as Copyright laws etc to fight against piracy.

7.

Should Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) be entitled to dual citizenship?

**Statement**:Should Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) be entitled to dual citizenship?

**Arguments**:

**I.**Yes. This will

bolster the intimacy of the NRIs with the Indian soil.

**II.**No. The move

will not be fruitful for all NRIs because there is lack of provision for dual

citizenship in many countries.

8.

Should reputed private driver training schools be allowed to issue driving

licences?

**Statement**:Should reputed private driver training schools be allowed to issue driving

licences?

**Arguments**:

**I.**Yes. This will

enable more and more people to get driving licences.

increase the congestion of the vehicles on the road and will result in traffic

jams too.

9.

Should a trouble-torn state like Jammu & Kashmir release separatist leaders

without any condition?

**Statement**:Should a trouble-torn state like Jammu & Kashmir release separatist leaders

without any condition?

**Arguments**:

**I.**Yes. Release

of separatist leaders will be useful as a goodwill gesture to make the

situation peaceful in the state.

**II.**No.

Unconditional release of the separatist leaders will aggravate the existing

situation because these leaders have not shown any flexibility in their views.

10.

Should power theft be made a cognizable offence?

**Statement**:Should power theft be made a cognizable offence?

**Arguments**:

**I.**Yes. People do

not use power honestly.

**II.**Yes. This

will be a wise decision and will reduce antisocial activities in society.

Solutions:

1. From I: Our answer is ‘Yes’

because from here, the minute hand will take 30 minutes to reach 6, and the

hour hand will take an entire hour.

because from here, the minute hand will take 30 minutes to reach 6, and the

hour hand will take an entire hour.

From II: Our answer is ‘No’.

There are two possible times in this situation: approx. 5 : 15 (the minute hand

takes 15 minutes to reach 6 and the hour hand takes 45) and approx. 3 : 45 (the

minute hand takes 45 minutes to reach 6 and the hour hand takes 2 hours and 15

minutes, which is 135 minutes.)

minutes, which is 135 minutes.)

2. From I: If a month starts and

ends with the same day of the week, it must have a complete number of weeks

plus one more day. The only possible month is a 29-day February.

ends with the same day of the week, it must have a complete number of weeks

plus one more day. The only possible month is a 29-day February.

From II: In order to add up to

38, it can only be the highest possible number for the last Monday of a month

(31) and the highest for the first Thursday of a month (7).

38, it can only be the highest possible number for the last Monday of a month

(31) and the highest for the first Thursday of a month (7).

Therefore, both last month and

the current must have 31 days. The only two 31-day months in a row in the same

calender year are July and August. If both the months are from the same

calendar year, August is our answer. But the statement does not say that the

both the months are from the same calendar year. Note that December and January

are also the months in a row which have 31 days each.

calendar year, August is our answer. But the statement does not say that the

both the months are from the same calendar year. Note that December and January

are also the months in a row which have 31 days each.

3. From I and II together: Every

player takes an odd number of matches per play. After the first player goes,

there will always be an odd number of matches left. After the second player

goes, there will always be an even number of matches left. Therefore, the

second player, i.e Manisha, is the winner.

second player, i.e Manisha, is the winner.

4. From II: The first crossing

took place at point A. Consider A as a new starting point. Do the same for

every crossing point. Since they drove at consistent speeds, the distances from

A to B, B to C, and C to A are the same. After point A, one car must have

driven twice the distance as the other to reach B at the same time. Therefore,

one goes twice as fast as the other.

5. From I and II together: The

team A could win 3 points only by winning one match and tying another. Since

they only scored one goal, the results must be 1-0 and 0-0. The team C tied one

and lost the other match. The scores must have been 1-1 and 0-1. Their tied

game must have been against the team B. So team A beat team C (1-0) and team A

tied with team B (0-0).

6. Only I is strong. II is not

strong because we do not know whether the existing provisions are sufficient or

not.

not.

7. I is strong because intimacy

of NRIs with Indian soil will be helpful for Indian economy. II is a weak

argument because a move can’t be restricted only because the move is not giving

benefit to all of a kind.

of NRIs with Indian soil will be helpful for Indian economy. II is a weak

argument because a move can’t be restricted only because the move is not giving

benefit to all of a kind.

8. I is weak because it is not

desirable. Moreover, is falsely assumes that govt authorities can’t cope with the

demand of driving hiences. II is weak because it is not logical. It wrongly

assumes that such a move will lead to a spurt in the number of vehicles.

desirable. Moreover, is falsely assumes that govt authorities can’t cope with the

demand of driving hiences. II is weak because it is not logical. It wrongly

assumes that such a move will lead to a spurt in the number of vehicles.

9. I is strong because it will

encourage non-violence and will make the environment conducive for peace. II is

also strong because effort from only one side will not necessarily usher in

desirable result. But the state can’t be both more and less peaceful at the

same time. Hence either I or II follows.
