CAT 2017 – Slot 2 – Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation – A tea taster was assigned to rate teas from six different locations

A tea taster was assigned to rate teas from six different locations - Munnar, Wayanad, Ooty, Darjeeling, Assam and Himachal. These teas were placed in six cups, numbered 1 to 6, not necessarily in the same order. The tea taster was asked to rate these teas on the strength of their flavour on a scale of 1 to 10. He gave a unique integer rating to each tea. Some other information is given below: 1. Cup 6 contained tea from Himachal. 2. Tea from Ooty got the highest rating, but it was not in Cup 3. 3. The rating of tea in Cup 3 was double the rating of the tea in Cup 5. 4. Only two cups got ratings in even numbers. 5. Cup 2 got the minimum rating and this rating was an even number. 6. Tea in Cup 3 got a higher rating than that in Cup 1. 7. The rating of tea from Wayanad was more than the rating of tea from Munnar, but less than that from Assam.

Q. 1: What was the second highest rating given?

Q. 2: What was the number of the cup that contained tea from Ooty?

Q. 3: If the tea from Munnar did not get the minimum rating, what was the rating of the tea from Wayanad?
A) 3
B) 5
C) 1
D) 6

Q. 4: If cups containing teas from Wayanad and Ooty had consecutive numbers, which of the following statements may be true?
A) Cup 5 contains tea from Assam
B) Cup 1 contains tea from Darjeeling
C) Tea from Wayanad has got a rating of 6
D) Tea from Darjeeling got the minimum rating

 

Q1: 7

Q2: 4

Q3: Option (B)

Q4: Option (B)

There can be only two even numbers in rating.

Assam > Wayanand > Munnar (Ratings)

 

Q1 As per the table, we can see that the second highest rating is 7 (Himachal, Cup number 6)

 

Q2 As per the table, the cup from Ooty has number 4.

 

Q3 If tea from Munnar did not get the minimum rating, then tea from Darjeeling got the minimum rating (2)

The remaining ratings are 5, 6, 3

The only possibility is

Assam (6, Cup 3) > Wayanand (5, Cup 1) > Munnar (3, Cup 5)

So, the rating of tea from Wayanand is 5.

Option (B)

 

Q4 The choices are Cup 3 (Rating – 6) and Cup 5 (Rating – 3), Assam can’t be Cup 5 because it has a higher rating than Wayanand. So, Wayanad will be Cup 5. Munnar has a rating lesser than Wayanand. So, the only choice for Munnar is Cup 2 (Rating – 2). Assam can be Cup 1 or 3 and Darjeeling can also be Cup 1 or 3.
Option (B) seems fit.
