Answer key

Ans.1​​ ​​ b​​ 

conclusion​​ one talks about the assumption which fails to match with the context so one cannot be concluded,​​ the extremities could not stop free elections which implies that the government faced them adequately,​​ so second conclusion can be concluded.

Ans.2​​ ​​ d​​ 

nothing is mentioned about effluent people or about good fortune.

Ans3.​​ ​​ d​​ 

both conclusions are incorrect as nothing has been said about​​ inert​​ human organism and about the condition in which they react.

Ans.4 – b​​ 

“ubiquitous”​​ means present everywhere.​​ So​​ second conclusion​​ definitely follows as the main statements his that beauty is God’s gift and everything and everyone has beauty.

Ans.5​​ ​​ d​​ 

the phrase​​ “removes sloth”​​ does not implies that Indian are slow and slothful. We cannot conclude that India does not have time saving machines. It is possible that India has them but their number is insufficient.

Ans.6​​ ​​ d​​ 

the statements​​ do not say anything about India. Hence one is​​ negated.​​ second talks about the belief of rich and is beyond the scope of argument.

Ans.7​​ ​​ d​​ 

1 cannot be concluded as we do not know that the prime minister has absolute authority in the matter of confrontation.​​ Conclusion 2 is negated as​​ the​​ main statements​​ do​​ not​​ hint​​ that the two nations are neighbours.

Ans.8​​ ​​ d​​ 

none of the conclusions follow. One is incorrect because there could be another variety of animal which doesn’t have fur too.​​ So we cannot say that animal​​ X​​ qis from the poles. Second is out of scope as nothing has been said about polar bear skin.

Ans.9​​ ​​ d​​ 

conclusion​​ ​​ 1 is incorrect because the statement clearly said that there are two ways of procuring the form. So​​ she could not have chosen either of two.​​ Conclusion​​ 2​​ is​​ also​​ incorrect as people may prefer cash because it is safer​​ or faster or cheaper.

Ans.10 – d​​ 

none of the Conclusion is true. Committing a single act of moral offence cannot account for being called Immoral. So conclusion second is incorrect conclusion one does not follow because murder is one of the Immortal acts but may not be the only​​ immoral act.
