Answers :

Directions (1-5) :

From the given statements, the following inferences were made.

1) Answer: B

a2 + b= c -> √ [(18+6+7)+ (6+13+3)2] = Distance between D and G

√ (31+ 222) = Distance between D and G -> 17√5m

2) Answer: D

3) Answer: B

4) Answer: E

From I:

We have:

The sum of ages of O and K is equal to the age of L. The age of N and P is an even number. Based on above given information we have:

From the above information, we cannot find the difference between the ages of K and O.

Thus, statement I is not sufficient alone.

From II:

We have:

Based on above given information we have:

The difference between the ages of Q and K is the age of 8 but Q born before K.

From the above information, we cannot find the difference between the ages of K and O.

Thus, statement II is not sufficient alone.

From I & From II:

After combining above statements we have:

From the above information, we can find the difference between the ages of K and O is 3.

Thus, statement I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

5) Answer: B

From I:

We have:

One kid was born between D and E. Two kids were born between A and B. B was born after E.

Based on above given information we have:

One kid was born between D and E.

Two kids were born between A and B. B was born after E.

From the above information, we cannot find how many of them are older than B.

Thus, statement I is not sufficient alone.

From II:

We have:

C was older than atleast three kids. B was born immediately after C. Two kids born between B and A.

Based on above given information we have:

C is older than atleast three kids.

B was born immediately after C.

Two kids were born between B and A.

From Case 2, clearly, we can determine one kid is older than B. B was born in Tuesday.

So, the data in Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Directions (6-10):

All the persons are sitting along the circumference of the circle at equal distance between them. The radius(r) of the circle is 56m and the circumference of the circle is 2πr. Hence the circumference the circle is 352m and therefore distance between successive people is 44m.

Santhosh sits 88m away from the left of one who works in Infosys. There are two person sits between one who works in Infosys and one who works in IBM.

The one who works in HCL sits 132m away from the right of IBM.
