- Question 1 of 80
##### 1. Question

Logical Reasoning**Read the given information carefully and answer the following questions.**In a jungle, eight animals – Giraffe, Elephant, Goat, Lion, Crocodile, Snake, Bear and Rat are categorized as Herbivore, Carnivore and Omnivore. The rank of Carnivore is greater than Herbivore but lower than Omnivore. The animals of each category are further ranked based on the food they eat. Thus, each animal has an overall rank and a category rank.

The omnivore that eats grain has lesser rank than the one that eats meat. The carnivore that eats fish has greater rank than the one that eats eggs but lower than the one that eats meat. The herbivore that eats grass has lower rank than the one that eats fruits. The herbivore that eats green plants has the highest rank in that category. Bear is an omnivore who does not eat grains. Lion gets the highest rank among carnivore category and snake gets the lowest rank among carnivore category. Elephant gets the second rank in the herbivore category. Rat is neither a carnivore nor a herbivore. Neither giraffe nor goat is a carnivore. Snake does not eat fish. Goat did not get the highest rank in any category.

**Q.1 : What is the overall rank of lion?**Correct**Solution :**Decoding the puzzle Corresponding Inference 1) The omnivore that eats grain has lesser rank than the one that eats meat. 2) The carnivore that eats fish has greater rank than the one that eats eggs but lower than the one that eats meat.

3) The herbivore that eats green plants has the highest rank in that category.

4) The herbivore that eats grass has lower rank than the one that eats fruits.

(These four statements imply that there are two omnivores, three carnivores and three herbivores)

Quantitative AptitudeRahul travels 30% of his journey by train at the speed of 60 km/hr, 4/7 of the remaining journey by bus at 30 km/hr and remaining by car at 90 km/hr. Find his average speed over the journey.

Correct**Solution :**Let the total distance be 10x

Distance travelled by train = 30% of 10x = 3x

Distance travelled by bus = 4/7 × (10x – 3x) = 4x

Distance travelled by car = 10x – 3x – 4x = 3x

Average speed = Total Distance/Total time.

Time taken by train = 3x/60 = x/20

Time taken by bus = 4x/30 = 2x/15

Time taken by car = 3x/90 = x/30

Time = x/20 + 2x/15 + x/30 = (3x + 8x + 2x)/60 = 13x/60

Average speed = 10x/ (13x/60) = 600x/13x = 600/13 km/hr

Incorrect**Solution :**Let the total distance be 10x

Distance travelled by train = 30% of 10x = 3x

x = 10800 × (20/3) = Rs 72000

Salary of F = (100 + 11.11)% of 72000 = (1 + 1/9) × 72000 = Rs 80000

Savings of F = (8 + 2.4) × 1000 = Rs 10400

Expenditure of F = salary – savings = 80000 – 10400 = Rs 69600

∴ Required percentage = (69600/80000) × 100 = 87%
