Verbal Reasoning

Directions to SolveFind the statement that must be true according to the given information.

Q1: Ten new television shows appeared during the month of September. Five of the shows were sitcoms, three were hour-long dramas, and two were news-magazine shows. By January, only seven of these new shows were still on the air. Five of the shows that remained were sitcoms.

A Only one of the hour-long dramas remained on the air.

B Only one of the news-magazine shows remained on the air.

C Television viewers prefer sitcoms over hour-long dramas.

D At least one of the shows that was cancelled was an hour-long drama.

ANS:C - At least one of the shows that was cancelled was an hour-long drama.

If there were seven shows left and five were sitcoms, this means that only two of the shows could possibly be dramas. Choices a and b may be true, but there is no evidence to indicate this as fact. The fact that all of the sitcoms remained does not necessarily mean that viewers prefer sitcoms (choice d).
