## SOLUTION

1. E

Explanation:

Statement 1: The production of Company B is more than that of Company A but not more than that of company E.

Inference:    E > B > A

Statements 2: Production of Company C is more than the production Company B but not as much as that of company D.

Inference:  D > C > B

Statement III: Production of E is not as much as the production of company D.

Inference:  D > E

Taking statements I and II together, we get that there are three possibilities, as show below:

Possibility 1: E > D > C > B > A;

Possibility 2: D > C > E > B > A;

Possibility 3: D > E > C > B > A

Taking all three statements we get that there are two possibilities, as show below

Possibility 1: D > C > E > B > A

Possibility 2: D > E > C > B > A

Here we get that D’s production is highest.

1. B

Explanation:

Statement I. Kavita correctly remembers that her brother’s birthday is before fifteenth April but after twelfth April.

According to Kavita, her brother’s birthday → 13th or 14th April.

Statement II. Kavita’s father correctly remembers that his son’s birthday is before seventeenth April but after ninth April.

According to Kavita’s father, his son’s birthday → 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, or 16th April.

Statement III: Kavita’s mother correctly remembers that Kavita’s brother’s birthday is before sixteenth April but after thirteenth April.

According to Kavita’s mother, Kavtia’s brother’s birthday → 14th or 15th April.

From statement I and III, we get:

Kavita’s brother’s birthday is on 14th April.

1. D

Explanation:

Statement I. If Rohit who is currently facing North-East, turns 90° clockwise, he would face the same direction as Devesh.

As per the figure,

Rohit who is facing North-East, turns 90° clockwise. Thus, he will be facing South-East.

It is given that he would face the same direction as Devesh.

Hence, Devesh will also be facing South-East.

Hence, the question can be answered using Statement I alone.

Statement II. If Vaibhav who is currently facing North-West, turns 135° anticlockwise, he would face the direction 45° clockwise to the direction Devesh is facing.

Vaibhav who is facing North-West, turns 135° anticlockwise. Thus, he will be facing South Direction.

It is given that he will face the direction 45° clockwise to the direction as Devesh.

Hence, Devesh will be facing South-East

Hence, the question can be answered using Statement II alone.

Therefore, the question can be answered using either statement I alone or statement II alone.

1. C

Explanation:

Statement I: I Q was standing between R and P. S was standing at the right end of the line.

S was standing at the right end of the line.

As it is given shortest one is sitting at extreme left and highest one is sitting at extreme right end and given reference is that S was standing at the right end of the line. So, S will be standing at extreme right end.

_ < _ < _ < _ < S

Q was standing between R and P.

With this piece of information, we can clearly see that there are two cases possible.

Case 1:

_ < R/P < Q < P/R < S

Case 2:

R/P < Q < P/R < _ < S

Hence, Statement I is not sufficient

Statement II: T did not have the greatest height of all. P had more height than only R and Q.
P had more height than only R and Q.
T did not have the greatest height of all.

R/Q < Q/R < P < T < _

Hence, only II statement is sufficient.
Statement III: R, Q, P all were shorter than T.
R, Q, P all were shorter than T.
R/Q/P < Q/P/R < P/R/Q < T
Combining statements I and III, we get:
R/P < Q < P/R < T < S
Hence, statements I and III are sufficient..

1. A

Explanation:

Statement I: Q is to the immediate left of O, who is an immediate neighbour of M. P is an immediate neighbor of N and R.

Hence, statement I is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement II: O is facing R.

O is to the immediate right of P.

Hence, statement II is not sufficient to answer the question.

Direction (6 to 10): Logic: Firstly the words get arranged according to the vowels from the left end in increasing order and the even numbers are arranges on the right end in increasing order. Then the words starting with consonants gets arranged on the right end (after arranging the words starting with vowel first) in the decreasing order and the odd numbers are arranged on the left end in increasing order from right to left.
