Question Paper from: IBPS Clerk Mains 2016

 Five statements are given below, labelled a, b, c,d and e. Among these, four statements are in logical order and form a coherent paragraph. From the given options, choose the option that does not fit into the theme of the paragraph.


The mathematician Richard K. Guy is arguably best known for discovering a glider. Assuming that’s an intriguing-enough opening, let me explain. In 1970, the British mathematician John Conway invented a board game called, simply, “Life”


Life happens on a grid of squares that stretch in every direction (imagine an infinite chessboard). Each square, or cell, is either chessboard). Each square, or cell, is either


Now, this is not a game in the conventional sense: there’s no way to “win”, nor do you play against an opponent. In fact, Life doesn’t even need a player as it proceeds. You just set up an initial state and then watch what happens.


To start, you choose a certain number of cells to be live—at random, or in a pattern, whatever. Each cell now evolves according to a set of rules that considers its eight neighbours (left, right, above, below, and on the four corners).


This is the endlessly fascinating question Conway’s game raises, and this is why it was and remains today a much-discussed favourite among mathematicians and computer scientists.
