Solutions with Detailed Explanation:
1). From I:
Hence Y is in the middle of the line.
From II:
Hence Y is in the middle of line.

2). From I:
We donโt know if R earns more than T. So I alone is not sufficient to answer the question,
From II:
Hence II alone is not sufficient.
3). From I:
Hence D is on the immediate left of C.
I alone is sufficient to answer the question.
From II:
Hence F or D is on immediate left of C.
Thus, II is not sufficient to answer.

4). From I:
Success is necessary evil -> 8 1 4 5 โฆ(i)
Evil is amongst us -> 3 8 7 4 โฆ(ii)
From (i) and (ii),
Evil/is -> 8/4 โฆ.(iii)
From II:
Marketing is magic mantra -> 4 6 2 9 โฆ.(iv)
Success mantra is marketing -> 2 5 6 4 ..(v)
From (iv) and (v)
Success -> 5
Hence only II is sufficient to answer the question.
5). From II:
L-5
K-4
J-3
H-2
I-1
Hence I lives on floor no. 1.

6). From I:
Hence only I is sufficient to answer the question.
From II: There is nothing say about A. Hence II is not sufficient to answer the question.
7). From both I and II.
Hence, both are sufficient to answer the question.
8). From I: A> P> M, R, K
From II. A, P> M> K
From I and II: A> P> R> M> K
Or A> P> M> R> K
Or A> P> M> K> P
Thus, either K or R is the lightest.
9). From I: L _ N O _ Q _ S
Only I is sufficient to answer the question.
10). From I:
We canโt compare between V and W.
From II:
Hence only II is sufficient to answer the question.
