Free CJBAT Practice: Questions and Answers

CJBAT Written Comprehension Sample Question 1

Read the text and answer the following question.

Up until recently, the village of Ramdegi was a bustling farming community in central India's famous Tiger Reserve. Today, the village's human population stands at exactly zero. As part of an on-going effort to reduce human conflict with wildlife, the Indian government has been encouraging communities living in and around nature reserves to relocate for the sake of peaceful coexistence. Last month, everyone in Ramdegi did just that: some 200 families agreed to accept incentive packages and move beyond the reserve's borders, freeing the land to be reclaimed by the surrounding biodiversity.

A little over a month after the last human departed, Ramdegi is now home to herds of deer, antelope and boars - grazing on the meadows that were once cropland and cattle farms. Even a tiger has been spotted prowling the grounds of the empty village, free from dangerous and often deadly conflicts with humans that have driven the species to “endangered” status.

Question: Which one of the following best summarizes the main idea of the second paragraph?

A. It underlines the process of regeneration of the village's lands.

B. It describes the new inhabitants of the village.

C. It compares the number of predators to the number of herbivores.

D. It outlines the reasons for the village's relocation.

Solution

The correct answer is B - It describes the new inhabitants of the village.

The second paragraph describes the village following the departure of its human inhabitants. It does not outline the reasons for the relocation of the former inhabitant (this is given in the second paragraph), nor does it compare different types of animals or talk about regeneration of the land. Paragraph 3 merely describes the new village inhabitants - animals. Therefore, answer choice B is correct.


CJBAT Written Comprehension Sample Question 2

Read the text and answer the following question.

Whether you are experienced campers from childhood or first-time campers looking to save money, it would be wise to be prepared for this important adventure.

You should first make sure you have a place to camp. can find campgrounds just about anywhere, in cities or in national parks. You can also find cabin resorts that have spots set aside for campers; these are ideal for families who want a more socially active environment.


It is also important to bring with you proper supplies. You will need at least a good tent and some sleeping gear. When buying a tent, choose one that is easy to assemble. If the weather's warm, you can manage with standard sleeping bags or air mattresses with sheets and blankets. If you're heading to higher elevations it's worth investing in bags that keep you extra warm and dry out quickly when they get wet.


Safety is very important as well. Most ready-to-go first-aid kits are useful and affordable. In addition, know where the closest clinic or hospital is in case of a more serious injury.

Question: Which one of the following is an assumption made by the author in the third paragraph?

A. The weather is rainy in high altitudes.

B. Tents are typically easy to assemble.

C. Tents cost more than air matresses.

D. Camping is more enjoyable in warm weather.

Solution

The correct answer is A - The weather is rainy in high altitudes.

The third paragraph presents the following logic: If you are heading to higher elevations then invest in warm bags that dry out quickly when they get wet. The missing assumption here is that in higher altitudes there is rain (and colder weather) and that is why you need a sleeping bag that dries out quickly. If that is not the case, there would be no reason to buy a sleeping bag that dries out quickly. Therefore answer A is correct.

CJBAT Written Comprehension Sample Question 3

Read the text and answer the following question.

In the past, it was thought that individuals volunteered strictly for altruistic reasons: the Good Samaritan who went out of their way to aid a stranger, the soldier who went back to save an injured comrade. It was a noble thing for someone to lend a hand for the greater good of mankind. However, recent studies have indicated that most people have various reasons for volunteering, most of which are not at all altruistic. People volunteer to gain career experience and develop new skills, to build self-esteem, to meet new people and more.


Some people are uncomfortable with the notion that a volunteer works not only to benefit others but also to benefit themselves. Nevertheless, the best volunteering involves both motives. It is important to remember that even if the volunteer benefits from their work, so, too, do the people they are helping! This is a classic case of a reciprocal relationship.

Question: How many of the following are possible reasons people volunteer?

  • Helping others
  • Earning money
  • Learning new skills
  • Meeting people
A. One
B. Two
C. Three
D. Four
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The last sentence of the first paragraph details various reasons (other than altruistic ones) as to why people volunteer: ”People volunteer to gain career experience and develop new skills, to build self-esteem, to meet new people and more”. Apart from ”making money”, all the other reasons in the question appear in this sentence. Therefore the correct answer is C - Three.


CJBAT Written Comprehension Sample Question 4

Read the text and answer the following question.

Lots of people start running in their 30s or older, and it is one of the few sports in which you can improve with age. One example is the great Jack Foster, a self-styled "ancient marathoner”, who ran for the first time at the age of 32, and by the age of 40 found himself picking up a silver medal at the Christchurch Commonwealth marathon in 1974.

Of course, while we all may hold secret hopes of uncovering a latent talent, most of us are unlikely to progress to an elite level. But, whether we like to compete on a weekend or prefer to go on solitary excursions through the countryside, the message is that age is far less of a barrier in running than it is in other sports. With running, even if taken up later in life without any previous experience, it really is realistic to expect improvement with age.

Question: Which one of the following is definitely true regarding Jack Foster, based on the text?

A. He ran in his 20s.
B. He ran a marathon.
C. He is from Christchurch.
D. He is stylish.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is B - He ran a marathon.

In order to conclude which of the statements is definitely true, we must locate them in the text and find which one of them is explicitly mentioned there. In this case, it is easy to locate the section in the text corresponding to the answer choices, as the question provides us with a clue (”Jack Foster”) leading us to our answer. This is the section that refers to Foster:” One example is the great Jack Foster, a self-styled "ancient marathoner”, who ran for the first time at the age of 32, and by the age of 40 found himself picking up a silver medal at the Christchurch Commonwealth marathon in 1974”.

It is said that Foster: (1) ran for the first time at the age of 32 – this eliminates answer choice (a). (2) ran a marathon in Christchurch – however, we do not know if he actually lived there, thus eliminating answer choice (c). (3) he is a self-styled ”ancient marathonist”- which does not mean he is stylish, eliminating answer choice (d). Since the text states explicitly that Foster ran a marathon, answer choice (b) is thus the correct answer.

CJBAT Written Expression Sample Question 3

The following notes represent part of a working outline for a report for funding to launch a new Measles Vaccine campaign.

NOTES:

Highly contagious
Measles cases have decreased by 99.9% in the US
Still endemic in places around the world
All Americans are encouraged to be vaccinated against measles.
In 2013, 27 cases of measles were reported, highest amount of cases in 20 years.
Unvaccinated communities are at high at risk if they interact with someone who has been exposed to measles.

QUESTION: Which one of the following choices most clearly and accurately expresses the facts presented in the notes?

A. There is a need for a new Measles Vaccine campaign because measles is highly contagious and 2013 has more cases reported than in the past 20 years.
B. Unvaccinated communities are at high risk of contracting measles because it is still endemic in the US.
C. In 2013, there waere more cases reported than in the past 20 years. With measles being highly contagious, Americans need to be encouraged to be vaccinated so they do not die from this deadly disease.
D. Responding to the spreading endemic of Measles worldwide, Americans no longer need to be vaccinated as someone who has been exposed is already immune to the disease.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

Answer A: Correct. The answer provided correct information that was in the notes. Measles is highly contagious and there were more cases reported in the past 20 years.

Answer B: This answer is incorrect because it provides false information, the notes states that measles are endemic in places around the world; it does not say it is endemic in the US.

Answer C: This answer is incorrect because it provides additional information that could be inferred, but was not stated in the notes. The notes do not state that people "will die from this deadly disease." When writing these reports you must stick to the facts: who, what and where.

Answer D: This answer is incorrect because it provides contradictory information for the purpose of the question. These are notes to launch a new Measles Vaccine campaign, so by saying "Americans no longer need to be vaccinated" contradicts the purpose of the report. In addition it provides information not in the notes, "as someone who has been exposed is already immune to the disease."

CJBAT Deductive Reasoning Sample Question 1

Burns are classified as first-, second-, or third-degree, depending on how severe they are and how deeply they penetrate the skin's surface.

First-Degree Burns (Superficial)
Superficial first-degree burns affect only the epidermis, or outer layer of skin. In most cases, superficial first-degree burns are caused by mild sunburns or flash burns. The burn site is red, painful, and dry, but it will have no blisters. Long-term tissue damage is rare and usually consists of an increase or decrease in the skin color. Pain usually lasts 48 to 72 hours and then subsides.
Healing occurs in 3-5 days, with the injured epithelium peeling away from the healthy skin.
Treatment to manage the pain may include cold compresses, lotion, and antibiotic ointments (acetaminophen or ibuprofen). However, for most first-degree burns medical attention is rarely necessary.

Second-degree burns can be classified as partial or full thickness:

Second-Degree Burns (Partial Thickness Burns)
Partial thickness burns involve the epidermis and the upper part of the dermis layer of skin. The burn site appears red, blistered, and may be swollen. It can also appear wet and is usually painful. This type of burn should heal in several weeks (10-21 days) without grafting, and scarring is usually minimal.

Second-Degree Burns (Full Thickness Burns)
Full thickness burns involve the destruction of the entire epidermis and most of the dermis (second layer of skin). The burn site can be red or white in appearance, and it will appear dry and be very painful. This type of burn should heal in several weeks (21-35 days) without grafting, and scarring is usually minimal.

Treatment depends on the severity of the burn and may include antibiotic ointments, daily cleaning of the wound, and dressing changes one or two times a day. Pain treatment is the same as for first-degree burns.

Third-Degree Burns
Third-degree burns destroy the epidermis and dermis and may even go into the subcutaneous tissue (muscle, bones, etc.). The burn site may appear dry, white, or charred. Third-degree burns are not painful due to the serious damage done to the nerves. Third-degree burns are incredibly dangerous as they can lead to shock and ultimately death.
Third-degree burns require immediate emergency medical attention. Burn recovery will require sterile environments and intravenous antibiotics or antibiotic creams as the possibility of infection is high. Tetanus is one such infection and that is why aa tetanus shot is given. Even small areas may take months to heal. Scarring is a certainty, and in almost all cases of third degree burns it is necessary for the victim to receive skin grafts.

A second-degree burn that does not cover more than 10 percent of the skin's surface can usually be treated in an outpatient setting. The same does not apply to third-degree burns.


QUESTION: Larissa is at the hospital; her left palm was severely burnt this morning. The burn damaged not just the skin, but also muscle tissue. Therefore, Larissa received antibiotics and a tetanus shot. The burn involves less than 10% of body surface. The nurse in charge told Larissa that she will need to stay at the hospital. Is the nurse correct?

A. No. Larissa is suffering from first-degree burns.

B. No. It is possible to treat burns in an outpatient environment when 10% or less of body surface is damaged.

C. Yes. Third-degree burns can't be treated at home.

D. Yes. When a patient receives antibiotics they must stay at the hospital.

Solution

The correct answer is C.

According to the text, Larissa suffered from third-degree burns (there was damage to muscle tissue, not just skin) and was treated accordingly. Even if less than 10% of the body is burnt, third-degree burns cannot be treated outside the hospital. This applies only in the case of second-degree burns. Therefore, the nurse was right.

Answer choice A is incorrect. Larissa suffered third-degree burns.
Answer choice B is incorrect. According to the last paragraph of the text, this is only applicable to second-degree burns, not to third-degree burns.
Answer choice D is incorrect. This reasoning does not justify the nurse's claim. It is not because of the antibiotics that the patient should stay at the hospital, rather the severity of the burns and the proper way to treat them.


CJBAT Deductive Reasoning Sample Question 2

This question is based on the text from the previous one. 

QUESTION: A person is suffering from severe burns on his right foot. The doctor who treats him identifies his injuries as third-degree burns. What is necessarily true regarding the burns?

A. The damage was caused to the epidermis but not to the dermis.

B. They will leave scars.

C. They are very painful.

D. They will take less than a week to heal.

Solution

The correct answer is B - The extensive tissue damage caused by third-degree burns guarantees scarring.

Answer choice A is incorrect. This is the description of first-degree burns.
Answer choice C is incorrect. Third-degree burns don't cause pain due to the extensive damage to the nerves. It is second-degree full thickness burns that are described as very painful.
Answer choice D is incorrect. This is true only for first-degree burns. Third-degree burns take months to heal.

SHL Deductive Reasoning Test (Multiple Choice) Sample Question 3

Danny discovered the following facts while working on his geography assignment:
  30% of Georgia's inhabitants are Native Americans.
  50% of Georgia's inhabitants work in the service industry.
  20% work in agriculture and 60% drink Coke.

Danny drew four statements. Which statement must be true?

A. Half of Georgia's coke-drinking inhabitants are Native Americans.
B. One-third of Georgia's coke-drinking inhabitants work in agriculture.
C. In Georgia, there are more Native-Americans working in the service industry than in agriculture.
D. Some of Georgia's service industry workers drink coke.
E. One-fifth of Georgia's inhabitants, who neither work in agriculture nor drink coke, are Native Americans.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is (D).
Some of Georgia's service industry employees drink Coke.

The key to solving this problem is to figure out the sums (percentages) for each statement. If the results are greater than 100%, we can identify an overlap between categories.
Answer (A) - Half of Georgia’s coke-drinking inhabitants are Native Americans. If 60% of inhabitants drink Coke, then the Native American inhabitants that drink Coke make up 30% of Georgia's total population. And 30% of Georgia's inhabitants are Native Americans, so the sum of the two groups is 60% (i.e. 30% + 30%= 60% < 100%) of the population. There isn't a definite overlap between the categories.
Answer (B) - One-third of Georgia's coke-drinking inhabitants is 20% (1/3*60) and 20% of Georgia's inhabitants work in agriculture (i.e. 20% + 20%= 40% < 100%). However, there is no indication of overlap between the two groups.
Answer (C) - Whether there is an overlap between Georgia's Native American inhabitants and the service industry and agriculture workers is unknown, as Georgia's Native American inhabitants constitute 30% of Georgia's population, and service industry and agriculture workers together constitute 70% of Georgia's population (i.e. 30% + 70%= 100%). Also, even if Native Americans are divided between working in the service industry and in agriculture, there is no way of knowing how they are divided among those jobs.
Answer (D) - According to the data provided, service industry workers constitute 50% of Georgia's population. Furthermore, cola drinkers constitute 60% of Georgia's population. This means there is a definite overlap between service industry workers and cola drinkers (i.e. 50% + 60%= 110% > 100%). Therefore, some of Georgia's service industry employees definitely drink Coke (at least 10% of them).
Answer (E) - Two extreme possibilities must be taken into consideration while testing the statement's validity:
1. There is no overlap between the agriculture workers and the coke drinkers - in that case they constitute 80% of Georgia's population, which means those who are neither agriculture workers nor coke drinkers constitute 20% of Georgia's population. One fifth of those 20% equals 4% which are claimed to be the percentage of Native Americans in Georgia's population. However, it is known that 30% of Georgia's population is Native American. Therefore, this option is invalid.
2. There is a full overlap between agriculture workers and coke drinkers - in that case they constitute 60% of Georgia's population, which means those who are neither agriculture workers nor coke drinkers constitute 40% of Georgia's population. One fifth of those 40% equals 8% which are claimed to be the percentage of Native Americans out of Georgia's population. However, it is known that 30% of Georgia's population is Native American. Therefore, this option is invalid.

SHL Deductive Reasoning Test (Multiple Choice) Sample Question 4

Scientists at L.L. National Laboratory are building a new supercomputer, called Sequoia, that will be the most powerful machine in the world once it is completed by the end of 2012, and at least two other machines of comparable power are in the works. There is one vital component missing, however. If a supercomputer is compared to a very fast racing engine then more drivers are needed to use those engines.
Writing software programs that can split work up among all of a supercomputer's hundreds of thousands of microprocessors is a daunting task and requires lots of specialized training. Therefore, when the supercomputers are completed, there will be a shortage of people who know how to make use of all this computing power.

Which one of the following is an underlying assumption of the above argument?

A. The Sequoia will be the first supercomputer in the world.
B. As much skill and training are required to harness the supercomputer's power as that of a powerful racing car
C. An insufficient number of people are being trained now on how to run the supercomputers when completed.
D. The training to run the Sequoia was beyond what the average computer science student gets.
E. Supercomputers are far more complex than ordinary laptop, desktop and server computers.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is C.

Remember that for questions of the type Identifying an Underlying Assumption of the argument, the correct answer will not appear in the passage. It is something that must be assumed to be true in order for the argument to be true. The argument in this passage is clearly the last sentence, beginning with the signal word Therefore: Therefore, when the supercomputers are completed, there will be a shortage of people who know how to make use of all this computing power. Before reading the answer choices, you know that you are looking for a sentence that will support the fact that there will be a shortage of sufficiently trained people. It can be found in answer choice C: An insufficient number of people are being trained now to run the supercomputers when completed. Therefore, the correct answer is C.
