Sample Questions and Answers for BUA Foods Aptitude Test


1. Birds have been said to be descended from certain birdlike dinosaur species with which they share distinctive structural features. The fossil record, however, shows that this cannot be so, since there are bird fossils that are much older than the earliest birdlike dinosaur fossils that have been found. Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?
A. There are no birdlike dinosaur fossils that are older than the bird fossils but have not yet been unearthed.
B. It could not have been the case that some birds were descended from one of the birdlike dinosaur species and other birds from another.
C. The birdlike dinosaurs have no living descendants.
D. There are no flightless dinosaur species that have the distinctive structural features shared by birds and birdlike dinosaurs.
E. Birds cannot have been descended from dinosaur species with which the birds do not share the distinctive structural features.
The argument relies on the assumption that all birds descend from certain birdlike dinosaur species. Hence, option B gives the best assumption.
Answer: B

2. In Stenland, many workers have been complaining that they cannot survive on minimum wage, the lowest wage an employer 1s permitted to pay. The government is proposing to raise the minimum wage. Many employers who pay their workers the current minimum wage argue that if it is raised, unemployment will increase because they will no longer be able to afford to employ as many workers. Which of the following, if true in Stenland, most strongly supports the claim that raising the minimum wage there will not have the effects that the employers predict.
A. When inflation is taken into account, the proposed new minimum wage is not as high as the current one was when it was introduced.
B. Many employees currently being paid wages at the level of the proposed new minimum wage will demand significant wage Increases.
C. any employees currently being paid wages at the level of the proposed new minimum wage will demand significant wage Increased.
D. For any position with wages below a living wage, the difficulty of finding and retaining employees adds as much to employment costs as would raising wages
E. Raising the minimum wage does not also increase the amount employers have to contribute in employee benefits.
If when inflation is taken into account, the proposed new minimum wage is not as high as the current one when it was introduced, then the introduction of the new minimum wage won’t pose the problem of unemployment as pointed out by employers in the passage.
Answer: A

Which of the Following, if true, would most seriously weaken the argument above?
A. Less than 50 percent of the curriculum at most architecture schools is devoted to aesthetics.
B. Most buildings manage to stay In place well past their projected life expectancy
C. All architecture students are given training In basic physics and mechanics
D. Architects study as long and as intensively as most other professionals

B. Only recently have newspapers admitted to publishing Intentionally fraudulent stories.
C. Newspaper stories exposed as fabrications are a recent phenomenon.

6. There are Congressmen who say that the development of a space-based missile defence system will provide economic benefits only to military contractors. This claim is not true. A space-based missile defence system, even if it has no current applications for civilian businesses, will still benefit civilian businesses because those businesses will be able to find profitable uses for the government-developed technology in the future.

E. Space-based missile defence programs, although more expensive than traditional land-based systems, are theoretically more effective than traditional land-based systems.

Answer: C

7. Scientists have discovered a new species of butterfly that lives only in a small region of Central America and Is active only at night. During the day, it rests in treetops, where its green colour matches the foliage perfectly. Therefore, the scientists must have discovered the butterfly at night. The argument depends on which of the following assumptions?
A. The newly discovered butterfly is not related to any other species of butterfly.
B. The butterfly cannot survive In areas outside of Central America.
C. There Is no way for the scientists to detect the butterfly during the day.
D. The foliage in the butterfly’s habitat Is completely green.

8. Scientists have modified feed corn genetically, Increasing Its resistance to insect pests. Farmers who tend out the genetically modified corn last season applied less insecticide to their corn fields and still got yields comparable to those they would have gotten with ordinary corn. Ordinary
corn seed, however, costs less, and what these farmers saved on insecticide rarely exceeded their extra costs for seed. Therefore, for most feed-com farmers, switching to genetically modified seed would be unlikely to increase profits. Which of the following would it be most useful to know in order to evaluate the argument?
A. Whether the insecticides typically used on feed corn tend to be more expensive than insecticides typically used on other crops
B. Whether most of the farmers who tried the genetically modified corn last season applied more Insecticide than was actually necessary
C. Whether, for most farmers who plant feed corn, It Is their most profitable crop
D. Whether there are insect pests that sometimes reduce feed-corn yields, but against which commonly used insecticides and the genetic modification are equally ineffective
E. Whether the price that farmers receive for feed corn has remained steady over the past few years
Since the genetic modification is entirely based on the corn’s resistance to insect pests, the most useful factor to consider is the cost of insecticide of the normal corn when compared with the cost of the one used for the genetically modified corn.
Answer: A

9. Asthma, a chronic breathing disorder, is significantly more common today among adult competitive swimmers than it is among competitive athletes who specialize in other sports. Although chlorine is now known to be a lung irritant and swimming pool water is generally chlorinated, it would be rash to assume that frequent exposure to chlorine is the explanation of the high incidence of asthma among these swimmers, since following most logically completes the argument given?
A. young people who have asthma are no more likely to become competitive athletes than are young people who do not have asthma
B. competitive athletes as a group have a significantly lower Incidence of asthma than do people who do not participate In competitive athletics
C. µntil a few years ago, physicians routinely recommended competitive swimming to children with asthma, In the belief that this form of exercise could alleviate asthma symptoms
D. competitive athletes who specialize in sports other than swimming are rarely exposed to chlorine
E. many people have asthma without knowing they have it and thus are not diagnosed with the condition until they begin engaging in very strenuous activities, such as competitive athletics
Option E gives the most logical statement to complete the sentence.
Answer: E

A. Investors are unlikely to invest substantial amounts of capital in a company whose own managers are skeptical about the commercial prospects of a new technology they are developing.
B. The developers of a new technology are generally no better positioned than its potential buyers to gauge how rapidly the new technology can be efficiently mass-produced.
C. jf a new technology succeeds, the commercial benefits accrue largely to the producers, not to the buyers, of that technology.
