The following diagram displays the number of flowers in the gardens of 100 citizens in Berkshire.  Every home has at least one flower.

2 Which of the following statements must be true?
7
2

## Explanation

Gardens with Roses

= 9 + X + Y + 6 + 8 + 3

= 26 + X + Y

Gardens with Tulips

= 2 + 3 + 6 + 8 + X + Y

= 19 + X + Y

The second easiest to rule out is B because we just have to add up the numbers that are not in overlapping regions. Adding up 4 + 3 + 7 + 6 = 20 – B is false.

Looking at these statements, the easiest to rule out is C because we just have to check if there is a region that has all four circles overlapping or not. There is no such region, so zero gardens have all four flowers – C is false.

Gardens with Daffodils

= 4 + 2 + 9 + X

= 15 + X

C is also correct because the calculation of gardens with all 4 flowers is exactly zero.

This diagram shows information on a group’s favourite topping on pancakes.

3 Which of the following statements must be true?
2
7

## Explanation

The values for each are as follows:
Chocolate – 7+x+y, Banana – 11+x, Strawberry – 12+y.
This means that if x is two greater than y then banana will be more popular than strawberry.
E.g. for x = 3 and y = 1, banana = 14 and strawberry = 13.

If x is two bigger than y means that, X could be 2 and banana 1. But the example given says 3 for X and 1 for y. This would be three times bigger, not 2.

If x=2 and y=1 then they are equal thus not filling the requirement of the answer

Why isn't C the correct answer?

banana= 5+2+4+(2)-presuming x is only 1 bigger than y. This equals 13. strawberry= 6+2+4+(1)=13. both are the same therefore there must be a mistake with the answer...???

The answer should be C because it said chocolate only Why does no one reply here

Anon Medicmind Tutor

Mon, 09 Aug 2021 13:20:18

The answer can not be C because chocolate only is 3, while banana and strawberry is 2. So banana and strawberry is the least favourite topping (of the values that we know, but x or y could also be less than 3)

x>y could be x=1 and y=0 which would make banana=11+1=12 and strawberry=12+0=12. As a result answer A is incorrect

A group of applicants for interpreting jobs at a Czech company were asked to list which foreign languages they had a working proficiency in. The four most common were French, German, Spanish, and English.

French is represented by the rhombus.

Spanish is represented by the triangle.

German is represented by the oval.

English is represented by the rectangle.

4 Which of the following statements is correct?
6
21

## Explanation

The total number of English speakers is 42.

Five sixths of this number would be 5/6 x 42 = 35 people.

Within the rectangle for English, we can see that 6 people do not speak another language.

Therefore, 36 people who speak English also speak another language, and option B is correct.

I now know that b is correct, because the total speakers of English are 42, and 42x 5/6 is 36 which is 42 minus the number of English-only speakers which is 6

How is B right? The total is 42 and multiplied by 5/6 = 35 and then 42-35 = 7 not 6. Shouldn't the right answer be D?

Chip Medicmind Tutor

B is right as the questions says at least 5/6. Of the 42 English speakers if 5/6 were to speak another language then we need at least 35 that can speak another language. Upon adding 36 speak at least another language therefore is B :)

How is 42*5/6=36??? Medicmind Tutor

QG magazine did a survey of their readers to assess their knowledge of Black-Tie attire brands. They asked if individuals were aware of four brands:

• Hoge Bess, represented by the heart.
• Tap Mon, represented by the hexagon.
• Sleeters, represented by the trapezium
• Heckitt, represented by the Square.

5 Which of the following statements is correct?
2
23

## Explanation

Statement 3 is the correct answer. Here, it’s worth noting on your whiteboard the numbers included in the square (representing Heckitt) and at least one other. The keyword ‘at least’ tells us we should include overlaps with more than one other shape as well. This is 6 + 2 + 8 + 4 + 8 + 4 + 6. In total, this gives 38 people who know of both Heckitt and at least one other company. Overall, 60 people were surveyed which gives us a total of 38/60, which is a little less than 2/3 which would be 40/60.

Statement 1 is incorrect. We see that overall 31 people had heard of Tap Mon, but of these 17 had heard of Hoge Bess which is just over half.

Statement 2 is incorrect. Overall, 25 people had heard of Sleeters. There are only 8 that had heard of all 3, which is less than a third.

Statement 4 is incorrect. From previous analysis we know that overall 60 people were surveyed, and we see that only 17 knew of only one brand. This is more than 15, a quarter of 60.

The total number of students is 30. 20% of 30 is 6 and the students who are only after acute is 6 as the pentagon does not overlap with any other job, hence the correct answer is C.

A small school makes a diagram of the talents of a number of all Year Seven pupils.

7 Which of the following statements is incorrect?
0
18

## Explanation

The answer is D. Be careful – this was asking for the statement which is incorrect. There are 84 individuals in the year. One third of this is 28. There are 33 individuals who are in just one shape. This means that greater than a third have just one talent and this answer is the incorrect statement.

A is incorrect. There are 48 individuals in the rectangle showing musicality. This is more than any of the others (Heart/Sporty = 35, Parallelogram/Artistic = 37, Crescent/Academic = 29).

B is incorrect. There are 48 musical pupils. 16 (or 1/3rd) possess just this talent so 32 (2/3rds) possess at least one more. This means that this statement is true.

C is incorrect. There are 84 pupils. The overlap between the heart and the parallelogram is equal to 10 + 7 + 6 = 23. This is more than ¼ of 84 so this statement is correct.

i'd like an explanation for this please.

Keshavi Perera Medicmind Tutor

Wed, 06 Jan 2021 03:22:12

This is what I think; I might be wrong though so feel free to correct me. A is correct because it has 48 kids in comparison to the other ones which have less (i honestly just guessed because it had 16). B is correct because 48-16(only musical) = 32 and 32/48 is two thirds C is correct because 23 kids satisfy being sporty and artistic among other qualities and this is more than 84(total number of kids)/4 This leaves only D to be incorrect therefore the right answer :)

8 Which of the following is not true of X?
6
0

## Explanation

The answer is B. X is within the circle and therefore must earn over £100k. This means that they cannot have the income of £25,000 so this is the statement which is not true for X. Initially C might be tempting. However, the statement states that do not have a policymaker role so this is true for X.

9 Which of the following statements about J is correct?
6
1

## Explanation

C is the answer. Whilst there is overlap between qualified doctors and qualified dentists, J is not in the overlap. He is therefore not a qualified dentist and so is not doubly qualified.

10 Hettie is job-hunting for a role with four criteria. She has found a job advertisement from Company B. Which of the following is true of the job?
1
3

## Explanation

The answer is C. “Long-term basis” is a synonym for the permanent role and “location of preference” maps to desired location. Job B is in an overlap of these two criteria and therefore this is true.

Mary has categorised her recipes. Included in this is her Challah recipe (C).

11 Which of the following statements about Challah is true?
5
5

## Explanation

D is the answer. Challah is in the overlap between all four of the shapes. Therefore, it does need an oven to be cooked and also needs yeast. It is Jewish so cannot be Arabic nor not a Jewish type of bread. It is oven-cooked rather than fried.

12 Which of the following statement is not true of car V?
3
23

## Explanation

The answer is A. It is an electric car. However, it is priced less than £45,000 rather than less than £40,000. This might raise questions about option D. However, option D offers a threshold greater than that in the key. If it is less than £45,000 then it is by definition less than £50,000.

It couldn't be B as its top speed is 100 or less. 99 is less than 100, but the question is asking what is *not* true.
