Hello and welcome to exampundit . So here is the Abhinav’s Reasoning Challenges for Bank PO Exams 2016.

The rules are same as the fighter’s puzzle challenges(which is coming back soon).

Directions (Q. 1-10): 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.
