Test Five from the CLATGyan Test Series 2019 Published



We have released the Test Five from the CLATGyan Test Series 2019 and it will be accessible on the online test portal (details of which have already been sent to you on your respective email addresses). The fifth test is a sectional test from the Logical Reasoning section and the questions in the test are based on Syllogisms, Critical Reasoning, Statement-Assumptions and Statement-Conclusions.

For a sneak peak of the test, solve the following quiz.

Sneak Peak of Test 5 (Logical Reasoning):

1. Some dogs are cats. All cats are mice. Conclusions: I. Some dogs are mice. II Some mice are dogs. III. All mice are cats. IV. No cat is a dog.

2. Six statements are given followed by four answer choices. Each answer choice is a combination of three statements from the statements given below. Identify the answer choice in which the statements are logically related i.e. the third statement is a conclusion derived from the first two statements. A. All machines are controllable. B. All machines are definable. C. All devices need contraptions. D. All machines need instruments. E. All devices need instruments. F. All machines are devices.

3. Two paleontologists, Dr Tyson and Dr. Rees, disagree over the interpretation of certain footprints that were left among other footprints in hardened volcanic ash at site G. Dr. Tyson claims they are clearly early hominid footprints since they show human characteristics: a squarish heel and a big toe immediately adjacent to the next toe. However, since the footprints indicate that if hominids made those prints they would have had to walk in an unexpected cross-stepping manner, by placing the left foot to the right of the right foot. Dr. Rees rejects Dr. Tyson’s conclusion. The disagreement between the two paleontologists is over which one of the following?

4. Mary, a veterinary student, has been assigned an experiment in mammalian physiology that would require her to take a healthy, anesthetized dog and subject it to a drastic blood loss in order to observe the physiological consequences of shock. The dog would neither regain consciousness nor survive the experiment. Mary decides not to do this assignment. Mary’s decision most closely accords with which one of the following principles?

5. Photovoltaic power plants produce electricity from sunlight. As a result of astonishing recent technological advances, the cost of producing electric power at photovoltaic power plants, allowing for both construction and operating costs, is one-tenth of what it was 20 years ago, whereas the corresponding cost for traditional plants, which burn fossil fuels, has increased. Thus, photovoltaic power plants offer a less expensive approach to meeting demand for electricity than do traditional power plants.

The conclusion of the argument is properly drawn if which one of the following is assumed?

6. Statement: "Though the candidates have been instructed to bring pencils, yet provide some pencils with each invigilator." - An instruction to test administration staff. Assumption 1: Pencils are in short supply. Assumption 2: All the candidates will bring the pencil.

Before you decide on taking the test, make sure that you’re mentally prepared for it. That means you would be required to put aside two hours for just attempting the mock. Since you will be doing this from the comfort of your home, it would be better if you create an atmosphere that makes it conducive for an examination. Keep household chores on hold and the urge to check social media at bay.

Most crucially, attempt the tests as and when they are released. Keeping them pending because you think you will take them in the last month before CLAT is a bad idea. It goes against what mocks aim to do and that is, they give you a glimpse of what your preparation is like. If you figure that out now, you have room (erm, time) for improvement and you don’t have to go through all that trauma of wondering where you faltered.

A good score for Test 5 will be around 65 to 75 (out of 100). Do send your scores to your personal mentor we had allotted and ask him/her for advice on how to strengthen areas that you are weak in. Also remember that you can only benefit from a test if you understand why an answer of yours has turned out to be right or wrong. So, make sure you go through all the questions once you are done with the test.
