Explanation:

Directions (Q. 1-3): B is the son of C but C is not the mother. So, C is the father of B. A is married to C. So, A is the wife of C and the mother of B. S is the daughter of A and hence of C and so she is the sister of B. T is the brother of C and U is the brother of B.

1). Clearly, B is the son of A and S is the daughter of A. So, A has two children.

2). There are two females only-mother A and daughter S.

3). S is the sister of B who is male. So, B is brother of S.

Directions (Q. 4-5): Refer to the following figure.

4). Total distance he travelled from his house = 10+2+4+16+64+256=352m

5). Point Y located in South-east direction with respect to his school.

6).D ≤ K, K > P, P≥ Q
Or, K≥D, K > P, P ≥ Q
Or, K > D, K = D> P, P ≥ Q
OR, K > P ≥ Q , K =D > P ≥ Q
Thus, I and II both are not true.

7).S > R , R = T, T<V
Or, S > R =T, V > R = T
Thus, conditions I and II both are not true

8).N<L, L = P, P≤ H
Or, L>N, L= P, H≥ P
Or,L = P > N,H≥P = L
Hence,

9).2A > 4C, 4A =6B => 4A > 8C,4A = 6B
Or,4A = 6B > 8C
i.e. B > C or C<B. Thus, C#B.
