## Solution

Solution (1 to 5)

The one who lives on Yellow floor and B who lives on the Brown floor are male.
The person who likes Audi lives on the Brown floor.
Residents of Pink and Green floors are women.
The person who likes Lamborghini is not a male but lives on Red floor.

Table 1

 Floor Person Car Gender Orange Pink F Green F Yellow M Blue Red Lamborghini F Brown B Audi M

The persons who like Porsche and Mercedes have the same gender.
F likes Maserati.
The one who likes Ferrari is A and a woman.

Table 2

 Car Person Floor Gender Mercedes F Audi Ferrari A F Porsche F Rolls Royce Maserati F Lamborghini

G doesn’t live on Pink, Green or Blue floor.
A and B don’t live on Pink and Green floors.
The one living on Yellow is a male.

Table 1

 Floor Person Car Gender Orange Pink [C, D, E, F] F Green [C, D, E, F] F Yellow M Blue [A, C, D, E, F] Red Lamborghini F Brown B Audi M

Persons who like Porsche and Mercedes don’t live on floors Blue or Orange.
The person who likes Lamborghini doesn’t live on the Orange floor.
The person who likes Ferrari doesn’t live on the Red floor.
The person who likes Maserati and he doesn’t live on Green floor.
G doesn’t like Porsche or Ferrari.
The one who likes Ferrari does not live on Blue or Green floors.

Table 2

 Car Person Floor Gender Mercedes [Pink, Green, Yellow Red, Brown] F Audi Ferrari A [Orange, Pink, Yellow, Brown] F Porsche [C, D, E] [Pink, Green, Yellow, Red, Brown] F Rolls Royce Maserati F [Orange, Pink, Yellow, Blue, Red, Brown] Lamborghini [Pink, Green, Yellow, Blue, Red, Brown]

E is a Male.
The one living on Yellow is a male.
Combining Table 1 and 2, we get

 Car Person Floor Gender Mercedes [C, D, G] [Pink, Green] F Audi B Brown M Ferrari A Orange F Porsche [C, D] [Pink, Green] F Rolls Royce E [Orange, Pink, Green, Yellow, Blue] M Maserati F [Orange, Pink, Yellow, Blue] M Lamborghini [C, D, G] Red F

Pink and Green can only be occupied by C and D, so G must live on the Red floor.
The person who likes Mercedes is neither D nor E and she doesn’t live on Red or Green floors.
F like Yellow.

 Car Person Floor Gender Mercedes C Pink F Audi B Brown M Ferrari A Orange F Porsche D Green F Rolls Royce E Blue M Maserati F Yellow M Lamborghini G Red F
1. E
2. B
3. B
4. B
5. C
6. D
7. A

8. D
From statement I, P & Q have passed. But nothing about R & S. From statements II , ‘One among R and S has passed’ and this is false. This indicates ‘R and S both have passed or both are failed. Hence we get both only P and Q have passed or all P, Q, R, S have passed.

9. C
Using each statement alone, we can find that the last Sunday of March 2013 was on 26th March.

10. A
