Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1).

Hence I is not sufficient to answer the question.

Hence II is not sufficient to answer the question.

Hence R is on the immediate left of P.

2).From I. A(+) โW
โ
D
We donโt know the gender of W. Hence I is not sufficient to answer the question.
From II. A(+) โW (-)ร E
โ
D (+)
Thus W is paternal aunt of D. Hence II is sufficient to answer the question.

3).From I.
Hence statement I is sufficient to answer the question.
From II.

Hence statement II is sufficient to answer the question. Hence either statement I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

4).

Hence statement I is not sufficient to answer the question.
Hence statement II is not sufficient to answer the question.
I and II contradict each other and canโt therefore be combined. Hence both statements are not sufficient to answer the question.

From (iv),(v) and (x), colour/ andโmi/joร (xii)

10).Check options one by one.
1)   S< P< R=T
Thus, S< T or T>S is true. Hence (T>S) does not follow
2)   T>R =U> S
Thus, T>S is true. Hence 2) follows
3)   Q= TK<S
Thus, T< S is true. Hence 3) does not follow.
4)   T<R =S. Thus, T<S is true. Hence 4) does not follow.
