SNAP December 16 exam alert: Be ready for questions on Logical Reasoning

MBA aspirants who are appearing in forthcoming SNAP 2012 exam on December 16, 2012 must be ready for Logical reasoning questions as all questions in this section, correct answers will  carry 1 mark each. 

 Here is one sample question : 
 
Punishment seems to direct child behavior by using pain or unpleasantness. But since it stops bad behavior just for the moment, punishment does not teach your child the behavior you want him to learn.Which of the following exhibits a pattern of reasoning similar to the one used in the argument above?
 
a. Learning from mistakes is more complex than carrying on in the same way as before. Learning
is possible only when one realizes what precisely went wrong and how it can be avoided in
future.
b. Punishment cannot be generic but has to be in keeping with the situation and should encourage
the desired behavior.
c. In the workplace, we often treat a permanent problem as a temporary one, and end up creating
processes that ultimately do not provide us solutions.
d. Drivers who are fined for speeding are at increased risk of receiving subsequent speeding citations,
suggesting that speeding citations have limited effects on deterrence.
 
Explanation 
 
Answer is  c
 
The argument says that although punishment deters the child from behaving in a certain way, it fails to teach him the behaviour that parents want the children to learn. This momentary deterrence is because of the fear of pain. Option (c) is similar in reasoning as it states that a temporary problem is treated as a permanent one at a workplace. Consequently such processes are designed which only manage to resolve the problem at hand but fail to provide permanentsolutions. Options (a) and (b) are not similar in pattern to the given argument. Option (d) is incorrect because it talks about increased risks of repeating the action, which is not indicated in the main argument.
