Solution:
Directions (Q. 1-5):
India provide financial help  pa li ka sa (i)
help for other country  sa ri jo sh (ii)
provide for poor country   jo ri ha pa ... (iii)
Pakistan needs financial help  to sa si li ... (iv)
From (i), (ii) and (iv), help - > sa (v)
From (i) and (iii), provide  pa ... (vi)
From (i), (iv) and (v) financial  li (vii)
From (i), (v), (vi) and (vii), India  ka... (viii)
From (ii) and (iii), for/country  jo/ri ... (ix)
From (ii), (v) and (ix) other  sh (x)
From (iii), (vi) and (ix) poor  ha ... (xi)
From (iv), (v) and (vii) Pakistan/needs  ta/si  …(x ii)

6). c) Since Divi and Pavi exchange places, so Pavi’s new position is the same as Divi’s earlier position. This position is 17th from the right and 10th from the left. Therefore Number of girls in the row = (16 + 1 + 9) = 26.
7). d). Saran’s new position is 15th from the right as well as the left end of the row.
Therefore number of students in the queue = ( 14 + 1 + 14 ) = 29.
8). d). Number of students behind Ruban in rank = ( 49 - 18 ) = 31.
So, Ruban is 32nd from the last.
9). c) Number of students in the class = ( 4 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 7 ) = 24.
10). c). Clearly, number of boys in the row = ( 6 + 10 + 8) = 24.
