REASONING THE REASON

LEGAL REASONING

LOGICAL REASONING

ANALYTICAL REASONING

LEGAL REASONING

Legal Principal : Confession is an admission of the commission of an offence by a person before a Judicial Magistrate. A confession is made out of the free will of the person confessing. Based on confession alone, there can be conviction of the person confessing.

Factual Situation : Mr. Joseph was murdered on 1-4-2012. In this connection, the Police arrested five persons and charged them for the offence of committing murder. Out of the five, one Mr. Rakesh expressed his desire to confess. When he was produced before the Judicial Magistrate, he admitted that he had seen the four persons committing the murder, but he had not informed the police about it.

Decision:

(a) Mr. Rakesh's statement before the Judicial Magistrate amounts to confession

(b) Mr. Rakesh's statement before the Judicial Magistrate does not amount to confession.

(c) The Judicial Magistrate can convict the four persons mentioned by Mr. Rakesh.

(d) Mr. Rakesh's statement should not be believed by the Judicial Magistrate, as he seems to be telling lies

The answer is (b).

LOGICAL REASONING

1. Among A,B,C and D , B is heavier than A and C but C is taller than him. D is not as tall as C , while A is shortest. C is not as heavy as A. D is heavier than B but shorter than him. Who is the heaviest?

(a) A
(b) B
(c) C
(d) D

The answer is (c).

Study the following information to answer the given questions:

(i) Eight friends A, B,C,D,E,F,G and H are seated in a circle facing the centre.

(ii) D is between B and G and F is between A and H.

(iii) E is second to the right of A .

1. Which of the following is A's position?

(a) Left of F
(b) Right of F
(c) Between E and F
(d) Cannot be determined

The answer is (b).

2. Which of the following is C's position?

(a) Between E and F
(b) Between G and E
(c) Second to the left of B

ANALYTICAL REASONING

1. A study of former college athletes revealed that, as a group they are five times less likely to die before the age of fifty than are members of the population at large. The advice to derive from this is clear: Colleges should vastly expand their athletic departments so as to follow a greater proportion of all students to participate in athletics, thereby increasing the overall life expectancy of their student population.

Which one of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument above?

(a) Because participation in college athletics requires tremendous academic discipline, college athletes are better suited to succeed in society than are students who do not participate in college athletics.

(b) The students who voluntarily compete in college athletics are more pre-disposed to good health than are those who do not.

(c) Few colleges have the resources to increase spending on athletics, a non-essential University program.

(d) People who become active after leading sedentary lives can remarkably decrease their chances of contracting heart disease.

The answer is (d).

 

2. Contracts can either be in writing or oral. But contracts for the sale of immovable property must be in writing to be enforced in a court. When a judge refuses to enforce an oral contract for the sale of land, he does not deny the existence of contract. He refuses to recognize it because it does not satisfy a formal requirement of law.

The above statement is primarily concerned about the difference between

(a) sale and purchase
(b) seller and purchaser
(c) contract of sale of immovable and movable property
(d) an agreement and its written record

The answer is (c).

 

3. The Constitution gives the freedom of religion. People practice religion to satisfy their spiritual needs.

Which of the following statements has the same logic?

(a) Wealth gives power to enjoy material things. People enjoy wealth for physical pleasure.

(b) People have the right to live, but they die because they do not want to exercise that right

(c) Theft is a crime. People steal because they want to violate the laws

(d) None of the above

The answer is (a).
