Directions (1 â€“ 3):

Directions (4-7):

Note: None of the person born before 1962.

• If it mentions the person age is considered as last two digits of the person Birth year, then it will be at any sequence. For example, X age is considered as last two digit of Y birth year-1936, and then X age is either 36 or 63.
• F was born on 1968.
• The difference between the age of F and B was Five years. So B can be born in either 1973 or 1963. So we have two possible cases.

• Câ€™s age is two less than last two digit of Birth year of B. Here mention that Câ€™s age is equal to the last two digits of Bâ€™s birth year. In both the cases if we take last two digit of Bâ€™s birth year in given sequence,then we get C born before 1962. So if we take reverse of last two digits of Bâ€™s birth year then it satisfies the given conditions. So C was born on 1983 in Case1 and 1984 in case 2.

• Bâ€™s age is one less than the sum of Eâ€™s and Câ€™s age. We know that ages of B and C from that we can conclude the age of E as 11 and 22 in case 1 and case 2 respectively.
• A is three year elder than C. Hence the age of A is 38 and 37 in case 1 and case 2 respectively.
• Hâ€™s age is last two digit of Aâ€™s birth year. It may be 80 or 8 years in case 1 and 18 or 81 in Case 2. But from the note given above Hâ€™s age is fixing as 8 and 18 for case 1 and case 2.

• G is four year younger than H. From this G is 4 year old in case 1 and 14 years old Case 2.
• D is born Four year after G.Â Hence D is born on 2008 in case 2. But inÂ Case 1 we cannot conclude the birth year of D.Â HenceÂ Case 1 is eliminated.

Directions (8-10):

\$# – 5.45pm

• It takes 45 minutes travel to reach HR office from central bus stand. So, 5.45- 45 minutes = 5.00pm
• The person takes 25 minutes to reach bus stand from his House.
• So, 5pm -25minutes = 4.35miutes = &*

• She starts walking from point A at %@ = 2.40 minutes
• Suji walk at 10km speed per hour and covers a distance of 45km to reach point B. It means she takes 4hours 30 minutes to reach the point B.
• So, 2.40pm + 4hrs,30minutes = 7.10pm which is *%
