Advice & Insight From TSA Specialists
The first section of the TSA can be challenging for candidates, as it is strictly an aptitude test, rather than a test of knowledge. Here, we present 10 difficult questions from our question bank. We’ve removed the multiple choice options to make these questions even more difficult – all questions in our bank include four options to choose from.
In direct proportion, when one quantity increases, the other increases by the same factor. So we need to find the factor of increase in the number of units and apply that same factor to the cost.
The increase in production from 500 units to 800 units is a factor of 800/500 = 1.6.
We multiply the original cost by this factor to get the new cost: Â£10,000 * 1.6 = Â£16,000. Therefore, the cost of producing 800 units is Â£16,000.
This is equivalent to 0.55 * 1000 = 550, then multiply by 0.3. This gives 165.Â
A quick way to find the solution to this question is substitute values.
Distance Travelled = Speed x Time Taken
In 30 minutes, Bill will have travelled 15 km (30 x 0.5) and Jasper will have travelled 7.5 km (15 x 0.5).
In 1 hour, Bill will have travelled 30 km (30 x 1) and Jasper will have travelled 15 km (15 x 1). Since Bill and Jasper will both be 30 kilometres away from Ordinaryville at 2.00 pm, the answer must be 2pm.

The conclusion of the argument is: “Advertising shapes societal norms in ways that promote consumerism and create unrealistic expectations.”
The argument is discussing the role and effects of advertising. It begins by stating a fact about advertising, then acknowledges a positive aspect, but the conclusion is introduced with “it also shapes societal norms,” which is the author’s primary assertion about advertising. The phrases following this main point (promoting consumerism and creating unrealistic expectations) are support for the main conclusion. It’s the author’s final analysis or judgment of the subject at hand, which is what typically defines a conclusion in an argument.
The conclusion of an argument is the claim that is supported by the preceding information or premises. Here, the statements about Jane’s love for animals and her degree in zoology are the premises, used to support the claim that she would make an excellent zookeeper. This claim is therefore the conclusion.
The conclusion of an argument is the claim that the other statements are intended to support or justify. Here, the information about doctors’ opinions on exercise and the benefits of regular exercise are premises, used to support the conclusion that everyone should incorporate regular exercise into their routine.
Eating Brazil nuts may not be the only source of selenium.
According to the text it is the inclusion of selenium in a personâ€™s diet that decreases the risk of cancer. Therefore, if others sources of selenium are available then it is not irresponsible to not eat Brazil nuts.
The logical flaw in this argument is an overgeneralisation. The argument incorrectly assumes that every lawyer, including John, always lies. Overgeneralisation involves drawing a broad conclusion based on a small number of cases, which is not logically sound.
The most reasonable inference from the statement is that Mike answered more questions correctly than anyone else in the class. We know that Mike scored the highest mark, which suggests that he answered more questions correctly than his classmates.
The most reasonable inference is that the government supports the increased use of electric vehicles in City X.Â
