A man went to Toronto by car from Cambridge. He made his midway mark at Brighton, where he stopped for coffee not long after crossing Easter. Which distance is the longest?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation: Easter to Toronto is the furthest distance. This is because the man's initial portion of the journey—the drive from Cambridge to Easter—was made by car. He pulled over at the halfway point, Brighton, and drove on to Toronto. The distance between Easter and Toronto is therefore greater than the distance between Easter and Cambridge or Brighton.

The house where a group of friends reside is split up into one apartment per level. Madeleine lives in the apartment above Sara, while Shawn lives below Claudia. Claudia resides with Roger, while Sara resides in the apartment underneath Shawn. The top floor is occupied by Peter. Are there any other roommates?

Correct! Wrong!

Let's now examine the options for shared apartments: As a result, Shawn and Madeleine are the only ones who could potentially live together among the options provided. While everyone else is either living alone or on different floors, they might both be on the second story together.

On the playground, Martha, a student, is playing marbles with her pals. a) Martha participates on the summer marbles team. c) The playground is where Martha is. c) on the summer, people play marbles on the playground. c) A few students are playing marbles on the playground.

Correct! Wrong!

The right answers are B & D.
B. Martha is in the playground: The phrase ""Martha is playing marbles with her friends in the playground"" clearly implies this.
D. There are some students playing marbles on the playground: Although Martha and her friends are clearly playing, the text makes no mention of other students participating.

From left to right, Janet, Eric, Marcus, Joan, Emmanuel, Andrew, and Angela are seated in this sequence. Eric swaps places with Marcus after Janet swaps places with him. In the row, who is at the right end?

Correct! Wrong!

Following the first placement revisions and the following order: Janet, Eric, Marcus, Joan, Emmanuel, Andrew, and Angela. First, Janet swaps places with Eric, so Janet, Marcus, Joan, Emmanuel, Andrew, and Angela are now in order. Subsequently, Eric switches places with Marcus, resulting in the following order: Marcus, Janet, Eric, Joan, Emmanuel, Andrew, and Angela. After these adjustments, Angela is now at the right end of the row.

The people seated in a row from left to right are Joan, Emmanuel, Marcus, Andrew, Janet, Eric, and Angela. Janet switches places with Eric, then Eric switches places with Marcus after that. Who is at Eric's left side?

Correct! Wrong!

From left to right, in initial order, are Janet, Eric, Marcus, Joan, Emmanuel, Andrew, and Angela.
Following Janet's switch with Eric, the order is now: Andrew, Angela, Emmanuel, Janet, Marcus, Joan, and Marcus.
Following Eric's switch with Marcus, the following is the final order: Janet, Eric, Joan, Emmanuel, Andrew, and Angela.
After Janet, Eric, and Marcus trade places, Angela is positioned at the right end of the row in the final configuration.

The house where a group of friends reside is split up into one apartment per level. Madeleine lives in the apartment above Sara, while Shawn lives below Claudia. Claudia resides with Roger, while Sara resides in the apartment underneath Shawn. The top floor is occupied by Peter. In the lowest flat, who is it?

Correct! Wrong!

After analyzing the remaining options, we can determine who is likely to occupy the bottom apartment by dissecting the hints and determining that Sara is the only one. Based on the indications provided, all other inhabitants are positioned on upper floors, leaving Sara to live in the bottom apartment with confidence.

John outpaces Jody in running. a) Cisco was declared the champion runner. b) John is faster than Cisco at running. b) John has the same top speed as Cisco. b) Cisco has a quicker speed than Jody.

Correct! Wrong!

Starting with the premise that "John runs faster than Jody," we can analyze the following statements:
a) "Cisco is the champion runner": This statement doesn't directly relate to the comparison between John and Jody. It lacks context regarding Cisco's running abilities and the criteria for being a champion.
b) ""John can run further than Cisco"": There's no direct link between running speed and the ability to cover distance. Just because John is faster than Jody doesn't necessarily mean he can cover more distance than Cisco.
c) ""John can run as fast as Cisco"": This is true because the original statement only establishes John's speed relative to Jody, leaving Cisco's speed undetermined. Therefore, it's possible for John and Cisco to have equal speed.
d) ""Cisco can run faster than Jody"": This statement is also valid because if John is faster than Jody and we lack information about Cisco's speed relative to John, it's plausible that Cisco could indeed be faster than Jody.
In conclusion, only options C and D can be valid conclusions based on the given information. The information provided doesn't allow us to confirm if Cisco is the fastest (a), if John can outrun Cisco (b), or if John and Cisco have the same speed (c). However, we do know that John is faster than Jody, and Cisco could potentially be faster than Jody, making options C and D both valid deductions.

Fifty applicants took the test. Twenty applicants provided responses to less than half of the questions. b) There were ten failures in the examination. c) Thirty candidates responded to more than half the questions. d) Forty applicants were approved.

Correct! Wrong!

The combination of true statements that is most likely to occur is B & D. Although we cannot confirm either one without knowing the specifics of the exam, let's analyze the reasoning: Since the question only asks for the most likely scenario, and assuming a reasonable passing threshold of approximately half the questions, these two statements seem to be the most likely outcomes.
