# Reasoning Ability Practice Test for NIACL Assistants

REASONING ABILITY PRACTICE TEST
Directions(1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions. Here some statements with some conclusions. You have to choose which conclusion is suitable for the given statements from the given five options.
a)if only conclusion I follows.
b)if only conclusion II follows.
c)if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
d)if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
e)if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow.

1.Statements:
F < R < L ≤ S > O
Conclusions:
I.F < S
II.O > R

2.Statements:
U ≤ C = N < Q ≥ J
Conclusions:
I.Q > J
II.C < J

3.Statements:
G ≥ R = O ≥ W
Conclusions:
I.G > W
II.W = G

4.Statements:
K > E ≥ R = A,
E < B
Conclusions:
I.K = A
II.A < B

5.Statements:
D = O < L ≤ P > H
Conclusions:
I.P < D
II.O > H

Directions(6-10): In each of the following questions, a group of numbers/symbols followed by five combinations of inter codes is given. You have to find out which of the combinations correctly represents the group of numbers/symbols based on the given coding system and the conditions and mark that combination as your answer.

 Numbers/Symbols Letter Code 6 F * M @ D 4 U 3 S & J + R # Y 7 A 9 Q % Z 2 L ^ P 5 C 8 U
Conditions:
(i)If the first and the third elements are symbols then their codes are to be interchanged.
(ii)If an odd number is immediately followed as well as immediately preceded ny a symbol then that odd number is to be coded as 'X'.
(iii)If the last element is an even number then the first element is to be coded as the code of that even number.
(iv)If the second element is symbol then the code of that symbol is to be interchanged with the code of first element.

Solution
1.F < R < L ≤ S > O
Conclusions:
I.F < S : True
II.O > R : Not true

2.Statements:
U ≤ C = N < Q ≥ J
Conclusions:
I.Q > J : True
II.C < J : Not true

3.Statements:
G ≥ R = O ≥ W
Conclusions:
I.G > W : Not true
II.W = G : Not true
G is either greater than or equal to W.
Therefore, either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.

4.Statements:
K > E ≥ R = A,
E < B
B > E ≥ R = A
Conclusions:
I.K = A : Not true
II.A < B : True

5.Statements:
D = O < L ≤ P > H
Conclusions:
I.P < D : Not true
II.O > H : Not true

6.Condition (iv) is applicable.

7.Condition (ii) is applicable.

8.Condition (i) is applicable.

9.Condition (i) is applicable.

10.Condition (iii) is applicable.
