#### Reasoning and General Intelligence – Venn Diagrams

TYPE-1

Case-1:

here IA represents only A

IB represents only B

IIAB represents A and B

– represents student passed in English

– represents student passed in Reasoning.

1 – represents student passed in English only.

2 – represents student passed in Reasoning only

3 – represents student passed in both English Reasoning both.

1  – represents P only

2 – represents Q only

3 – represents R only

4 – represents Q and R (not P)

5 – represents P and Q (not R)

6 – represents P and R (not Q)

7 – represents P, Q and R

1 → Engineer

2 → Doctor

3 → Farmer

4 → Doctor who is farmer also

5 → Engineer who is doctor also

6 → Engineer who is farmer also

7 → Person who is Engineer, doctor and farmer.

EXAMPLE 1: In the following venn diagram identify the number which denotes Doctor    who know both swimming and dancing.

(a) 5                             (b) 3

(c) 4                             (d) 6

Sol. (c) Area 4 which is common to ∆ 0 and represents the required condition.

TYPE-II

Note I-When one class of items is completely included in the another class of item and is represented by the given diagram.

eg: I – Mango

II-Fruit

Here all mango are fruit

Note 2: If two classes of item are completely different from each other but they all are completely included in third class then the relationship is represent of the diagram.

eg: I- represent potato

II – represent onion

III- represent vegetable

Note 3: If two group of items having some common relationship and both of them are all included in third class then the relationship is represented by the diagram.

Ex;-Brother, Father, Male.

II → Father

III → Male

Some Brother may be Father and all are male.

Note 4: When one class of item is completely included in another group while third is not related to both of them then such conditions are diagrammatically represented by

EXAMPLE 3: ‘Triangle’ represents young persons, ‘circle’ represents uneducated persons and ‘rectangle’ represents employed persons.

Give the answers of the following questions:

• Which region represents young, uneducated and employed persons?
• Which region represents educated, employed and young persons?
• Which region represents young, educated and unemployed persons?
