Federal Air Marshal Test Sample Questions and Detailed Explanations

Logic-Based Reasoning Test Instructions:
Make sure to read the entire passage before answering the questions. Answer each question based only on the facts given, and assume all the facts to be true.

Passage 1

Starting a new family tradition, the Smith family has rented a summer house for four weeks. The Smith family includes Bob, Hannah, Paul, Carly, Ashley, Howard, Sarah, and Andrew. Each of the family members needs to visit the summer house, but they don’t need to stay the whole four weeks. But, when they visit, each person needs to stay for one week. There needs to be at least two family members at the beach house every week, but there can’t be more than five family members at one time. Bob and Hannah will stay at the summer house the first and fourth week.

Carly and Sarah need to be at the summer house at the same time.
Ashley, Howard, and Sarah are free to stay at the house any time after the first week.

Paul and Andrew will alternate their visits at the beach house beginning at week one. One of them will stay at the beach house each week.


True/ False/ Cannot be Determined Sample Question

1) If Sarah chooses to go to the beach house week four, then Ashley and Howard won’t be able to go that week.

  • True
  • False
  • Cannot be Determined

Correct Answer: True

The conclusion: "If Sarah chooses to go to the beach house week four, then Ashley and Howard won’t be able to go that week" is logically be true based on the facts provided. Several relevant facts contribute to this conclusion:

  1. Only five people can stay at the summer home in a given week.
  2. Bob and Hannah will both be at the house week four.
  3. Paul and Andrew will alternate their stay at the beach house from week one. One of them will stay at the house each week.
  4. Carly and Courtney must stay at the beach house together at the same time.

So we know that there will be 3 people staying in the house week four (Bob and Hannah, and either Paul or Andrew), leaving room for only 2 other people. So if Courtney is also in the house week four, that brings the total to 5, because Carly and Courtney need to be at the house together. That leaves no extra room for Ashley and Howard.

Multiple Choice Sample Question

During which week is it NOT possible for the vacation home to be filled to max capacity?

  1. Week 1
  2. Week 2
  3. Week 3
  4. Week 5

Correct Answer: 1) Week 1

There are a few key facts needed to determine that the vacation home can’t be filled to max capacity during the first week:

The maximum number of people at the vacation home is five people at once
Ashley, Howard, and Sarah are available to go to the house any time after the first week
Paul and George are going to alternate their visits at the summer house starting the first week

Meaning at least one of them will be at the beach house each of the weeks
Carly and Sarah need to be at the summer house at the same time.

This means that the the following people CANNOT be at the house the first week: Ashley, Howard, Sarah, and Carly (who needs to be at the house at the same time as Sarah). That leaves only Bob, Hannah, and either Paul or George (who alternate visiting the summer home)—a total of three individuals, below the maximum capacity of five:
