Direction (1-5) :

From statement II:

The difference in the test dates of Q and T is 2. Râ€™s test is on odd date. S is taller than Q and V.

From the given information,

The test dates of Q and T are 5th and 7th November but not necessarily in the same order or 6th and 8th November but not necessarily in the same order. Râ€™s test is on odd date i.e. 1st, 5th or 7th November.

So, statement II alone is not sufficient.

On combining I and II,

From the given information,

We get three different possibilities,

(i) P(10th) > S() > Q(6th) > _ (1st) > T(8th) > _ (7th)

(ii) P(10th) > S() > Q(6th) > _ (7th) > T(8th) > _ (1st)

(iii) P(10th) > S(6th) > Q(5th) > T(7th) > V(8th) > R(1st)

So, we cannot determine exactly that whose test is on 6th November and who is the shortest.

On combining I and III,

From the given information,

We get two different possibilities,

(i) P(10th) > _ > Q() > _(1st/7th) > _ (8th) > _ (7th/1st)

(ii) P(10th) > Q()> _ > _ > _(8th) > _

So, we cannot determine exactly that whose test is on 6th November and who is the shortest.

On combining II and III,

From the given information,

_ > _ > _ > _ > _ >_(Ã—T)

So, we cannot determine exactly that whose test is on 6th November and who is the shortest.

Combining all statements together we get:

P(10th) > S(6th) > Q(5th) > T(7th) > V(8th) > R(1st)

So, S has test on 6th November and R is the shortest.

Hence, the data in statement I, II and III together are required to answer the question.

Statement I:

Shefali may be travelling on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Hence, Statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement II:

Shefali may be travelling on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Hence, statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement III:

Shefali may be travelling on any day except Friday.

Statement I & II:

Shefali can be travelling on Thursday or Friday.

Statement I & III:

Shefali can be travelling on Thursday or Saturday.

Statement II and III

Shefali may be travelling on Wednesday or Thursday

Statement I, II & III:

Shefali is travelling on Thursday.

Hence, the data in all the statements I, II and III together is sufficient to answer the question.

According to given information:

Statement I. It is before 02:00 PM but after 06:00 AM.

Means Yoga is scheduled between 06:00 AM and 02:00 PM.

Statement II. It is not at 10:00 AM.

Means yoga is not scheduled at 10:00 AM

Statement III. 08:00 AM is scheduled for Breakfast and yoga is done before breakfast.

Means yoga is done before 08:00 AM

On combining statement I and II:

Statement I. It is before 02:00 PM but after 06:00 AM.

Statement II. It is not at 10:00 AM.

Here, we cannot conclude on which time the Yoga is scheduled.

On combining statement I and III:

Statement I. It is before 02:00 PM but after 06:00 AM.

Statement III. 08:00 AM is scheduled for Breakfast and yoga is done before breakfast.

We conclude that yoga is scheduled at 07:00 AM.

On combining statement II and III:

Statement II. It is not at 10:00 AM.

Statement III. 08:00 AM is scheduled for Breakfast and yoga is done before breakfast.

Here, we cannot conclude on which time the Yoga is scheduled.

Hence, both I and III are sufficient to answer this question.

Direction 4-7:

Step 1: a) Write each word in the reverse order.

b) Take the reverse alphabetical positional values of each letter.

c) If the positional value is two digit number, then take the sum of that number.

For E.g. 1) Mike â†’ ekiM â†’ 22 16 18 14 â†’ 4795

Step 2: Arrange all the numbers in the ascending order.

Step 3: a) Addition of first and last number in each value.

b) The 2nd and 4th digits in the each number represents the alphabets of their respective positional values.

For E.g. 4682 â†’ (4 + 2) = 6 â†’ 6FB

Step 4: a) If the positional value of the last letter of the word is an even number, then add +1 to that number.

b) If the positional value of the last letter of the word is an odd number, then write the square of that number.

Step 5: a) Here, the number gives the respective alphabet as per the alphabetical positional values, take the opposite letter of that alphabet.

For E.g. The letter which has the positional value of 3 is â€˜Câ€™. Henceforth, the letter which is directly opposite to the position of C is X.

b) Arrange all the letters in the reverse alphabetical order.

Similarly the data in the input is arranged.

Step IV: 09 25 03 05 01

Step V: Z X V R B

Direction (8-10) :

Let us first decode the given symbols and then draw a family tree.

Let us check each of the options;

1) P @ M # N % K

Here, this expression means,

M is the mother of P. N is the father of M. K is the sister of N.

The diagram will be as follows

Therefore, in this option K is grandaunt of P.

2) P # M # N % K

Here, this expression means,

M is the father of P. N is the father of M. K is the sister of N.

The diagram will be as follows

Therefore, in this option K is grandaunt of P.

3) P @ M @ N % K

Here, this expression means,

M is the mother of P. N is the mother of M. K is the sister of N.

The diagram will be as follows

Therefore, in this option K is grandaunt of P.

4) P @ M % N % K

Here, this expression means,

M is the mother of P. N is the sister of M. K is the sister of N.

The diagram will be as follows

Therefore, in this option K is the aunt of P.

Hence, option d is the one in which K is not grandaunt of P.

Expression F # T @ K % L @ O means that,

T is the father of F. K is the mother of T. L is the sister of K. O is the mother of L.

The diagram will be as follows

Therefore, clearly, O is the great-grandmother of F.

Let us check each of the options;

1) P # Q @ R * T

Here, this expression means,

Q is the father of P. R is the mother of Q. T is the brother of R.

The diagram will be as follows

Therefore, in this option T is granduncle of P.

2) P * Q # R % T

Here, this expression means,

Q is the brother of P. R is the father of Q. T is the sister of R.

Here, T is female, hence not possible.

3) P * Q @ R * T

Here, this expression means,

Q is the brother of P. R is the mother of Q. T is the brother of R.

The diagram will be as follows

Clearly, T is the uncle of P in this option.
