CAT exam is round the corner being conducted on 25th November 2018 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 practice.

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”?

Answer: option D

Solution:

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.
