Logical reasoning questions which were once prominent in tough exams like CAT are now increasingly finding their place in placement papers and interviews. As the section title "Logical Reasoning" clearly indicates, one has to be really good at timely decision making applying logical thinking. Below are three questions for your practice.
Read the following paragraph carefully.
"The supreme court has said that it has authority to oversee legal cases if the case is too critical in the context of national interest. The CBI has the option of asking the supreme court to monitor high profile cases. The parliament is answerable to CBI if and only if directed by the supreme court. However it is the parliament that should ask for a supreme court monitoring of a case of national interest"
Now, try answering the following questions.
Reasoning Question 1
Supreme court can oversee every case it feels is critical and is of national interest. State True or False.
False. According to the last line of the passage, the court can monitor only on direction by the parliament.
Reasoning Question 2
Which appears to be the most powerful body of the three among parliament, CBI and Supreme Court ?
Based on the passage, Parliament seems to be the most powerful body as it has to direct the Supreme Court which in turn can direct CBI.
Reasoning Question 3
Should all the critical cases necessarily be monitored by Supreme Court ?
No, it is optional and only if parliament directs supreme court to monitor, the court can do so.
