CSE Logic Reasoning Test

Sponsored Links

This CSE Logic Reasoning test is comprised of 15 questions in multiple-choice format. But before that, let’s have a quick refresher about solving verbal logic. That is just in case you haven’t read our Civil Service Logical Reasoning Reviewer and Tutorial.

When taking the verbal logic portion of the CSC Eligibility test, you are usually provided with a passage of information. You are then required to evaluate a set of statements about that passage by selecting one of the following possible answers:

  • True (The statement follows logically from the information in the passage)
  • False (The statement is logically false from the information in the passage)
  • Cannot Say (Cannot determine whether the statement is true or false without further information)

CSE Logic Reviewer

The Civil Service Logic Exam is no different and will have you read a passage of text. After that, you need to assess whether a given statement related to that text is true, false, or if you cannot say. Some of these CSE Logic practice test questions will have long passages of text to read through and multiple questions per passage. Others may have very short passages, but only one or two questions on each. The way to approach them is identical: read the text carefully and thoroughly, and then assess the given statement.

Civil Service Exam Logic Mock Test

Here is the CSE Logic practice test I mentioned earlier. There is no time limit but I strongly suggest you put on a time limit for yourself. Doing so will get you accustomed to the time limitations when it comes to the actual Civil Service Logic Exam. Simply select one answer from the given choices and don’t forget to write it in a sheet of paper so you can check it later.

Read the following passage and then answer the CSE Logic Reasoning Test questions no. 11-15.

Instituted in 1979 as a temporary measure to limit population growth, China’s one-child policy remains in force today and is likely to continue for another decade. China’s population control has attracted criticism because of the manner in which it is enforced, and also because of its social repercussions. Supporters of the Chinese government’s policy consider it a necessary measure to curb extreme over-population, which has resulted in a reduction of an estimated 300 million people in its first twenty years. Not only is a reduced population environmentally beneficial, but it also increases China’s per capita gross domestic product. The one-child policy has led to a disparate ratio of males to females – with abortion, abandonment, and infanticide of female infants resulting from a cultural preference for sons. Furthermore, Draconian measures such as forced sterilization are strongly opposed by critics as a violation of human reproduction rights. The one-child policy is enforced strictly in urban areas, whereas in provincial regions, fines are imposed on families with more than one child. There are also exemptions to the rules – for example, ethnic minorities. A rule also allows couples without siblings to have children – a provision applies to million of sibling-free adults now of child-bearing age.

11. China’s one-child policy increases the country’s wealth.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot say

12. The passage suggests that two-child families will dramatically increase, as sibling-free adults reach child-bearing age.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot say

13. The main criticism of China’s one-child policy is that it violates human rights.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot say

14. Families with more than one child are more common in China’s rural areas.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot say

15. The general preference among Chinese parents is for male babies.

  1. True
  2. False
  3. Cannot say
