Logical Reasoning - Artificial Language

Logical Reasoning

CAT exam is round the corner being conducted on 26th November 2017 and all aspirants must be engaged in tying the loose ends and mastering the subject matter. Here are few questions on Logical Reasoning for your practise.

Directions to solve Question 1 and 2:

First, you will be given a list of three “nonsense” words and their English word meanings. The question(s) that follow will ask you to reserve the process and translate an English word into the artificial language.

Question 1)

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.

  • Gorbflure means fan belt
  • Pixngorbl means ceiling fan
  • Arthtusl means tile roof

Which word could mean “ceiling tile”

A) Gorbltusl

B) Flurgorbl

C) Arthflur

D) Pixnarth

Answer: option D


Gorbl means fan; flur means belt; pixn means ceiling; arth means tiles; and tusl means roof.

Therefore, pixnarth is the correct choice

Question 2)

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.

  • Hapllesh means cloudburst
  • Srenchoch means pinball
  • Resbosrench means ninepin

Which word could mean “cloud nine”?

A) Leshsrench

B) Ochhapl

C) Haploch

D) haplresbo

Answer: option D


Hapl mean cloud; lesh means burst; srench means pin; och means ball; and resbo means nine.

Leshsrench (choice a) doesn’t contain any of the word needed for cloud nine. We know that ochmeans ball, so that rules out choice b and c. when you combine hapl (cloud) with resbo (nine), you get the correct answer.

Direction to Solve Question 3 to 5:

Translate from an imaginary language into English. Then, look for the word elements that appear both on list and in the answer choices.

Question 3)

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.

  • Gemolinea means fair warning
  • Gerimitu means report card
  • Gilageri means which report

Which word could mean “fair weather”?

A) Gemogila

B) Gerigeme

C) Gemomitu

D) Germita

Answer: Option A


Gemo means fair; linea means warning; geri means report; mitumeans card; and gilameans weather.

Thus, gemogila is the correct choice.

Question 4)

Here are some word translated from acritical language

  • Plekapaki means fruitcake
  • Pakishillen means cakewalk
  • Treftalan means buttercup

Which word could mean “cupcake”?

A) Shillenalan

B) Treftpleka

C) Pakitreft

D) Alanpaki

Answer: Option D


Pleka means fruit; paki means cake; shillen means walk; treft means butter; and alan means cup.

Therefore, alanpaki means cupcake.

Question 5)

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.

  • Mallonpiml means blue ligh
  • Mallontifl means blueberry
  • Arpantifl means raspberry

Which word could means “lighthouse”?

A) Tiflmallon

B) Pimlarpan

C) Mallonarpan

D) Pimldoken

Answer: Option D


Mallon means blue; pimlmeans light; tifle means berry; and Arpan means “rasp” in raspberry. The word piml, which means light, is required for word lighthouse. That rules choices a and c.

Arpan in choice b means “rasp”, so that rules out choice b. That leaves choice d the only possible answer.
