Directions (1-5) : We have,

• E stays on the 4th
• Two persons stay between E and D.
• G stays adjacent to D. Again we have,

• Four persons stay between G and C, who doesn’t stays above E.
• Only one person stays between G and B.So case-3 gets eliminated. Again we have,

• As many persons stay above A is one less than the persons who stay below A.
• H stays neither at the bottom nor adjacent to C. so case-1 gets eliminated. I) I > L (I = S ≥ P > Q > L) –> True

II) G < P (G < V > Q < P) –> False

Only conclusion I follow

I) V ≤ X (V ≤ P < O ≤ X) –> False

II) E < Y (Y > X > R ≥ E) –> True

Only conclusion II follows.

I) Y > Q (Q < M ≤ P = N ≥ Y) –> False

II) J > M(M > Q > H > I < J) –> False

Neither conclusion I nor II follows.
