Read the below passage carefully and answer the following logic games questions:


The government of an island nation is in the process of deciding how to spend its limited income. It has $7 million left in its budget and eight programs to choose among. There is no provision in the constitution to have a surplus, and each program has requested the minimum amount they need; in other words, no program may be partially funded. The programs and their funding requests are:


* Hurricane preparedness: $2.5 million

* Harbor improvements: $1 million

* School music program: $0.5 million

* Senate office building remodeling: $1.5 million

* Agricultural subsidy program: $2 million

* National radio: $0.5 million

* Small business loan program: $3 million

* International airport: $4 million

Senators from urban areas are very concerned about assuring that there will be funding for a new international airport. Senators from rural areas refuse to fund anything until money for agricultural subsidies is appropriated. If the legislature funds these two programs, on which of the following could they spend the rest of the money?


A. the school music program and national radio
B. hurricane preparedness
C. harbor improvements and the school music program
D. small business loan program
E. national radio and senate office building remodeling

Read the below passage carefully and answer the questions:

 

At a small company, parking spaces are reserved for the top executives: CEO, president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer with the spaces lined up in that order. The parking lot guard can tell at a glance if the cars are parked correctly by looking at the color of the cars. The cars are yellow, green, purple, red, and blue, and the executives names are Alice, Bert, Cheryl, David, and Enid.

 

* The car in the first space is red.

* A blue car is parked between the red car and the green car.

* The car in the last space is purple.

* The secretary drives a yellow car.

* Alice's car is parked next to David's.

* Enid drives a green car.

* Bert's car is parked between Cheryl's and Enid's.

* David's car is parked in the last space.


Who is the secretary?
A. Enid
B. David
C. Cheryl
D. Bert
E. Alice

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option E

Explanation:

Cheryl cannot be the secretary, since she's the CEO, nor can Enid, because she drives a green car, and the secretary drives a yellow car. David's, the purple car, is in the last space. Alice is the secretary, because her car is parked next to David's, which is where the secretary's car is parked.

What color is the vice president's car?


A. green
B. yellow
C. blue
D. purple
E. red

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

The vice president's car cannot be red, because that is the CEO's car, which is in the first space. Nor can it be purple, because that is the treasurer's car, which is in the last space, or yellow, because that is the secretary's. The president's car must be blue, because it is parked between a red car (in the first space) and a green car, which must be the vice president's.
