# Solutions

Q (1 – 5):

Q1. Ans.(e)

Q2. Ans.(a)

Q3. Ans.(d)

Q4. Ans.(d)

Q5. Ans.(b)

Q6. 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.

Q7. 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’.

Q8. 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:

Q9. 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.

Q10. 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
