In CMAT 2020 “Logical Reasoning” section will have 25 questions comprising of 100 marks.
MBA aspirants who are appearing in CMAT being conducted in January 2020 may find following Logical Reasoning Question useful for practice:
Eight ants namely – P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W – are lying at the vertices of a square grid of dimensions 3 cm × 3 cm. The vertex is defined as the point of meeting/intersection of two perpendicular lines and each of them can accommodate at most one ant. It is also known that:
(i) The horizontal distance between V and S is equal to that of Q and W, which, in turn, is equal to 2 cm.
(ii) The horizontal distance between any two of V, R and P is zero.
(iii) The horizontal as well as the vertical distance between Q and P is 1cm.
(iv) P, R, T and U are lying at the vertices that lie inside the grid.
If the distance between R and T is equal to that of between U and W, then find the minimum possible distance between P and S
(a) cm (b) 4 cm (c) 2 cm (d) 3 cm
Solution : C
The given information can be depicted as shown below:
Hence, the minimum distance between P and S
