Verbal Reasoning - Data Sufficiency - Discussion

In each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and

Give answer

  • (A) If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question
  • (B) If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question
  • (C) If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
  • (D) If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question and
  • (E) If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

1. 

Question: How is 'No' coded in the code language ?

Statements:

  1. 'Ne Pa Sic Lo' means 'But No None And' and 'Pa Lo Le Ne' means 'If None And But'.
  2. 'Le Se Ne Sic' means 'If No None Will' and 'Le Pi Se Be' means 'Not None If All'.

[A]. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
[B]. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
[C]. Either I or II is sufficient
[D]. Neither I nor II is sufficient
[E]. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

In the two statements given in I, the common words are 'But', 'None', 'And' and the

common code words are 'Ne', 'Pa', ,'Lo'. So, 'Ne', 'Pa' and 'Lo' are codes for 'But', 'None' and 'And'. Thus, in the first statement, 'Sic' is the code for 'No'.

No, C will be the answer.

Alok Kaushal said: (May 13, 2018)  
I statement is correct, because there are some common values are coded in both but only one is there which is not common in both and that is NO, so No is coded with Sic.
