GIVEN:
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 7Â PersonsÂ â€“ P, Q, R, S, T, U and V
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 7 ProfessionsÂ â€“ ENT, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Neurologists, Ophthalmologist, Radiologist and Oncologist
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 4 daysÂ â€“ Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 1Â orÂ 2Â (not more than 2)Â doctors visit the clinic on these 4 day
SOLUTION:
These types of questions can be best solved by the tabulation method
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â If persons / days are mentioned in the question then the first column of the table will always be persons/days
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Here both persons and days are given therefore persons comes 1stÂ followed by days
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Here there are 7 persons, then theÂ 1stÂ columnÂ will be persons
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 2ndÂ column will beÂ daysÂ and theÂ 3rdÂ column will beÂ medical field
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q R S Friday RadiologistÂ âœ— T U V

CLUE 1: S visits on Friday with Radiologist
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â It shows that theÂ Radiologist visits on Friday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â S is not Radiologist
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Maximum 2 doctors visit the clinic on each of the given days
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Therefore onlyÂ 3 daysÂ are remaining
Â
CLUE 2: Oncologist U visits alone on Tuesday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â So no other doctors visit on Tuesday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Now only Wednesday and Saturday are remaining
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Tuesday â€“ U â€“ Oncologist
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q R S Friday RadiologistÂ âœ— T U Tuesday Oncologist V

CLUE 3: Q visits on Wednesday and he is not Pediatrician
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q Wednesday PediatricianÂ âœ— R S Friday RadiologistÂ âœ— T U Tuesday Oncologist V

CLUE 4: R visits on Wednesday
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q Wednesday PediatricianÂ âœ— R Wednesday S Friday RadiologistÂ âœ— T U Tuesday Oncologist V

CLUE 5: Neurologist visits on Friday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â From theÂ clue 1, it is clear that the S and Radiologist visit on Friday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Not more than 2 doctors visit on a single day
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Therefore, S is the Neurologist
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q Wednesday PediatricianÂ âœ— R Wednesday S Friday RadiologistÂ âœ— NeurologistÂ âœ“ T U Tuesday Oncologist V

CLUE 6: Pediatrician neither visit on Saturday and nor with T and V

Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â We know that Pediatrician does not visit on Friday, Tuesday and Saturday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â ThereforeÂ Pediatrician visits on Wednesday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Doctors Q and R visits on Wednesday and we also know that Q is not a Pediatrician
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Therefore,Â R â€“ Pediatrician
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q Wednesday R Wednesday Pediatrician S Friday Neurologist T U Tuesday Oncologist V

CLUE 7: Pediatrician visits with ENT specialist
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Therefore, Q is the ENT specialist who visits on Wednesday
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q Wednesday ENT R Wednesday Pediatrician S Friday Neurologist T U Tuesday Oncologist V

CLUE 8: V is not Radiologist
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â So, V will not visit on Friday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The only remaining day is Saturday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Therefore, V visits the clinic on Saturday
 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Q Wednesday ENT R Wednesday Pediatrician S Friday Neurologist T U Tuesday Oncologist V Saturday RadiologistÂ âœ—

CLUE 9: P is neither Orthopedics nor Radiologist
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â P is not Radiologist.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â So he will visit the clinic on Saturday
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â This leavesÂ TÂ to be theÂ RadiologistÂ who visits the clinic onÂ FridayÂ along with S
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Now P is not Orthopedics.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Therefore,Â P is the OphthalmologistÂ andÂ V is Orthopedics
Â

 PERSON DAYS FIELD P Saturday Ophthalmologist Q Wednesday ENT R Wednesday Pediatrician S Friday Neurologist T Friday Radiologist U Tuesday Oncologist V Saturday Orthopedics
The above is the final schedule of the doctors
