SECTION 1

Logical Reasoning and Problem Solving

Questions 1 – 44

For each question, decide which answer is correct based onl y on the information gi ven.

Question 1 In the aftermath of a worldwide stock-market crash, Country T claimed that the severity of the stock-market crash it experienced resulted from the accelerated process of denationalisation of many of its industries which occured shortly before the crash. 1 Which of the following, if it could be carried out, would be most useful for the evaluation of Country T ‟s assessment of the causes of the severity of its stock-market crash? A B C D Calculating the average loss experienced by individual traders in Country T during the crash. Using economic theory for predicting the next possible date of crash in Country T. Co mparing the total number of shares sold during the worst days of the crash in Country T to the total number of shares sold in Country T just prior to the crash. Co mparing the severity of the crash in Country T with those countries that are economically similar to Country T and have not experienced recent denationalisation.

Question 2 Kale has more nutritional value than spinach. But since collard greens have more nutritional value than lettuce, it follows that kale has more nutrit ional value than lettuce. 2 Any of the following, if introduced into the argument as an additional premise, makes the above argument logically correct EXCEPT A B C D collard greens have mo re nutritional value than kale. spinach has more nutrit ional value than lettuce. spinach has more nutrit ional value than collard greens. spinach and collard greens have the same nutrit ional value.

Question 3 Although custom prosthetic bone replacements produced through a new computer-aided design process will cost more than twice as much as ordinary replacements, custom replacements should still be cost -effective. Not only will surgery and recovery time be reduced, but cus tom replacements should last longer, thereby, reducing the need for further hospital stays. 3 Which of the follo wing must be studied in order to evaluate the argument presented above? A B C D The amount of time a patient spends in surgery versus the amount of time spent recovering fro m surgery. The amount by which the cost of producing custom replacements has declined with the introduction of the new technique for producing them. The degree to which the use of custom replacements is likely to reduce the need for repeat surgery when compared with the use of ordinary rep lacements. The degree to which custom replacements are produced with the help of new technique is more carefully manufactured than the ordinary replacements.

Mammoth Industries‟ average inventory of telephones awaiting shipment to retailers has declined slightly over the last year. Although the proposed improvements are indeed needed.

This period can be considerably shortened by disabling the female ‟s sense of smell or by remov ing the scent-producing glands of the pup. Question 13 Firms adopting “profit-related-pay” (PRP) contract pay wages at levels that vary with the firm‟s profits. [For reporting errors or discussing questions.co. A female rat that has given birth shows maternal behaviour towards rat pups. negotiating the introduction of PRP contracts is complex and time -consuming. most strongly supports the view that it would NOT be advisable to try to eradicate agricultural pests that go through a caterpillar stage by spraying croplands with the en zyme mentioned above? A B C D Most species of caterpillar are subject to natural predation. Many agriculturally beneficial insects go through a caterpillar stage. 14 Which of the follo wing hypotheses best exp lains the contrast described above? A B C D The amount of scent produced by rat pups increases when they are in the presence of a female rat that did not bear them. on the basis of the given evidences. Because introducing PRP contracts greatly changes an individual worker ‟s relationship with the firm. Under PRP contracts costs other than labour costs. it is argued that PRP contracts increase worker productivity.co. Many agricultural pests do not go through a caterpillar stage. make up an increased proportion of the total cost of each unit of output. 13 If. if true. In the metalworking industry last year. Since caterpillars of different species emerge at different times. would most seriously weaken that argument?

A B C D Deductive Inductive Presumptuous Hypothetical Questions 23 – 25 It is natural to believe that the world‟s leading cities would be found to be in a constant state of change. The passage is pessimistic regarding the likelihood of a hydrogen economy based on the dissociation of water.
