# Solution

Q1. Ans.(a)

From statement I:

11 → Suresh 4 ← 21 →  Mohan← 16

So, there are 21 students between Suresh and Mohan.

Using statement II:

Mohan’s name is not even mentioned in the given statement. So, we cannot find the answer using statement II alone.

Q2. Ans.(e)

Using either of the statements alone we cannot find the code for \$, but using both the statements together we can find that ‘#53′ is ‘good flowers are’. So, the code for \$ is ‘really’.

Q3. Ans.(e)

Using statement, I:

We cannot find the relation using this statement as J’s name is not even mentioned in it.

Using statement II: We can say that J is the mother of P but cannot decide whether P is the son or daughter of J.

Using both statements together: Q4. Ans.(d)

Using either of the statements alone we cannot find the code, and even by using both the statements together we can only find that ‘never ever’ is coded as ‘naja’ the code for ‘never’ cannot be uniquely determined even by using both the statements together.

Q5. Ans.(e)

Using either of the statements alone we cannot find the answer, but when we use both the statements together we can find the relation in terms of weight, ie

K>J>W>P>M,T

6.(e)

From I: P> Q, but T is not the tallest.

From II: R> P, but S is not the tallest.

From I and II: R > P > Q. Neither S nor T can be the tallest. Hence R is the tallest.

1. (e)

From II: From I and II: Point E is to the north-west of Point S.

1. (b)

From I: Possible months: January, February, March, April, May or June.

From II: Raman’s son correctly remembers that his father went on vacation after 31st March but before 1st May.

So his father went on vacation in the month of April.

Hence only II is sufficient.

1. (c)

Sol. From I: The possible day of exam is Wednesday.

From II: The third day of the week is Wednesday.

Hence, either statement I alone or statement II alone is sufficient.

1. (d)

From I: Two-digit marks is less than or equal to 20.

Possible marks: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.

From II:Sujit scored more than 9 marks.

Possible marks: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.

Hence, statement I and II together are not sufficient.
