    Good points, guys. Let’s take them up today start of our session.

  • shashwat jha says:

    Hi Guys! 🙂
    ID 1: I don’t get why 3 is incorrect and 7 is correct! i mean correctly or incorrectly inferred.
    Can someone throw please some light?

  • Rishabh Kakkar says:

    Could you please explain how 10 can be inferred? It’s possible that Lalaland has only 1 man above the age of 18 years old.
    Also, isn’t 7th a bit ambiguous? It does not clarify if we’re talking about (men + women) =<18 or women + men =<18

  • Chhavi Keswani says:

    I had a doubt in the inference drill 1.
    The answers given on the page are 7 and 10.

    The statement given is: In Lalaland every man above the age of 18 can vote.

    Option 7 says that if someone cannot vote, they must be either a woman or a man who’s 18 or younger.
    I don’t understand how we can infer this from the given statement. The statement merely says that all men above 18 can vote. It doesn’t provide any information about who cannot vote. Also, it says ‘every man’, it doesn’t say that ‘only’ men above 18 can vote.

    According to me the answer should be 10 only.
    Could you please clarify this doubt?

    Inference drill 2: 1

  • Kushal says:

    DRILL – 1. NONE
    DRILL – 2. 3

  • Rishabh Kakkar says:

    Inference 1 – None
    Inference 2 – 3

    • Rishabh Kakkar says:

      In my opinion,
      1 could have been inferred if we were informed that Mac is a man.
      7 could have been inferred if we had a comma after ‘woman’.
