### Logic

These questions assess your logical reasoning and information analysis- Separating relevant and irrelevant information is a requirement to correctly solve the questions.

You may be asked to give the truth value of a statement, based on given prepositions. This is done using logical connectives (“not”-negation,  “and”-conjunction, “or”-disjunction).

You may also be asked to perform calculations using combinatorics (permutations, variations, combinations), and related principles.

In addition, you may be asked to solve set questions, which are based on set theory and elementary operations: unions, intersections and complements.

Logic Sample Question

Danny discovered the following facts while working on his geography assignment: 30% of Georgia's inhabitants are Indian, 50% of Georgia's inhabitants work in the service industry, 20% work in agriculture and 60% drink Coke. Danny drew four conclusions. Which of the four conclusions must be true?

These questions test your ability to read, understand and deduce from written passages. Sometimes you will need to find the answer as it is written in the text, and other times must infer based on what is written.

In the early 18th century, American traders came to Hawaii to exploit the islands’ sandalwood. In the 1830s, the sugar industry was also starting to prosper in Hawaii. In 1893, a group of American immigrants and sugar planters supported by a division of U.S. Marines have overthrown Queen Liliuokalani, the last reigning monarch of Hawaii. One year later, the republic of Hawaii was established as a U.S. protectorate. In March 1959, the U.S. government approved its statehood, and in June the Hawaiian people voted by a wide majority to accept admittance into the US.

Q- Approximately how many years passed between the first American visit to Hawaii to US admittance?
