Answers :

Directions (1-4) :

1) Answer: D

From I:

We have:

  • Geography is kept at bottom having pink cover.
  • Math is at second position from top.
  • Book having Red cover is kept at the top.
  • History book is just placed below math book.
  • There is a gap of one place between English and Hindi, who has cover of Green color.
  • English having Blue cover is above Hindi, that means English book is kept just below History book.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, no exact position for science book is known.

Hence, statement I is not sufficient alone.

From II:

We have:

  • Science is kept third from bottom just below English having Blue cover.
  • GK book is kept on top at a gap of one place from History book.
  • Science book having Black cover is kept at any place below Math book.
  • Geography book having Pink cover is kept at any place below Hindi book, that means Geography book is kept at bottom.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, exact position Yellow covered book is not known.

Hence, statement II is not sufficient alone.

From I and II:

After combining statement I and II we have:

Clearly, exact position of Yellow covered book is not known.

Hence, statement I and II together not sufficient.

Hence, option D is correct choice.

2) Answer: E

From I:

We have:

  • U sits third to right of T, who likes Singing.
  • S sits immediate left of U.
  • The one who likes Football sit in-front of the one who likes Badminton, who sits third to left of T, that means the one who likes Football sits immediate left of S.
  • Q having Boxing as hobby sit second to right of R, who sit third to right of S, that means R likes Badminton.
  • P sit third to left of Q.
  • V sit third to right of one likes Dancing, who sit second to right of P, which means V likes Football.
  • The one who likes singing sits second to left of the one like Drawing, that means S likes Drawing.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, we don’t know exact position of the one whose hobby is Cricket.

Hence, statement I is not sufficient alone.

From II:

We have:

  • Q sits third to left of S, who sits second to right of the one who likes Singing.
  • P sits third to left Q, who like Boxing.
  • The one who likes Football sit third to left of P.
  • U sits second to left of R, who sits second to left of the one who likes Boxing.
  • The one likes Boxing sits immediate right of W.
  • T likes Singing and sits third to left of the one who likes Cricket, that means U likes Cricket.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, we don’t know hobby of the R, who sits second to right of the one who likes Cricket.

Hence, statement II is not sufficient alone.

From I and II:

After combining both statements we have:

Clearly, R (Badminton) sits second to right of U (Cricket).

Hence, Statement I and II together sufficient.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

3) Answer: D

From I:

  • S sits third to right of R.
  • Neither S nor R sits at end of the row, that means we have two possible place for S, in case (1) S sits second from left end, in case (2) S sits second from right end.
  • Two person sits between Q and P, who neither sits at end nor sits adjacent to R.
  • T sits second to left of P and sits facing opposite direction of S.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, direction of facing of T, S, U and Q is not known.

Thus, required result can’t be determined.

Hence, statement I is not sufficient alone.

From II:

We have:

  • P sits second to right of T.
  • Either of them sits at end of the row, that means we have we have four possible place for P, in case (1) P sits at left end, in case (2) P sits third from left end, in case (3) P sits at right end, in case (4) P sits third from right end.
  • S sits third to right of R, who sits facing south, that means R sits second from right end.
  • U sits second to left of Q, who sits immediate left of R, that means case (3) & case (4) are not valid.
  • U and P doesn’t sit together, that means case (2) is not valid.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, direction of facing of P, S and U are not known.

Thus, result can’t be determined.

Hence, statement II is not sufficient alone.

From I and II:

Clearly, both the statements are independent statement as P sits on end of row in statement II which contradict statement I.

Thus, we can’t compare both statements.

Hence, statement I and II together are not sufficient.

Hence, option D is correct choice.

4) Answer: A

From I:

We have:

  • The one who works in TCS is unmarried sister of H, who works in Wipro.
  • The one who works in RBI is married to H and is sister-in-law of P, that means P works in TCS.
  • The one who works in HP is married to J and is daughter-in-law of M.
  • The one who works in SBI is son of J, as only six members are there in family, that means M must be married to H and J is son of M.
  • D is one of the married member of the family, that means D must married to J.
  • As, only left organization is PNB, thus J must works in PNB.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, J works in PNB, who is father of the one who works in SBI.

Hence, statement I alone is sufficient.

From II:

We have:

  • J is father of W and is married to the one who works in HP, that means the one who works in HP is mother of W.
  • J is only child of the one who is brother of P.
  • M is sister-in-law of P, who works in TCS, that means M must be mother of J.
  • The one who works in HP is mother of the one who works in SBI, that means W works in SBI.
  • W is grandson of the one who works in RBI.
  • H is married to M.
  • H neither works in RBI nor PNB, that means M must work in SBI.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, organization of J is not known.

Hence, statement II alone is not sufficient.

Directions (5-7):

We have:

  • B has 121 coins, she takes 18 coins and give remaining to her only son, who likes Mango, that means B is mother of the one who likes Mango.
  • M, who likes Mango takes 12 coins and gives the remaining to his nephew H, that means number of coins to H is 95.
  • H takes 8 coins and gives the rest to his father who likes Litchi, that means number of coins to the one who likes Litchi is 83.
  • The one who likes Papaya is married to B and takes remaining 72 coins from the one who likes Litchi, since B is married to the one who likes Papaya, that means the one who likes Papaya is father of M and remaining coin with the one who likes Litchi is 11.
  • The one who likes Cheery is only married child of B, who likes Banana, since the one who likes Cheery is only married child of B and M is only son of B, thus the one who likes Cheery is mother of H.

Based on above given information we have:

Again, we have:

  • The one who likes Apple is sibling of R, who is mother of the one who likes Orange.
  • R gives 2/3rd of coin to her daughter-in-law.
  • The one who likes Guava is married to the one who likes Orange, as only three married couples are there in family of eight members, thus R must likes Cheery and H likes Orange.
  • K gives 56 coins to G, who is unmarried member of the family, that means G must likes Apple and K likes Papaya.
  • Since K gives 56 coins to that means K has 16 coins remaining.
  • The one who likes Cheery takes 3/8th coin from G, that means remaining coin with G is 35.
  • Since, R gives 2/3rd of coin to her daughter-in-law, that means the one who likes Guava has 14 coins.
  • Difference of value of coin from K to E is less than 4, that means E must have 14 coins.
  • P is one of the male member of the family, that means P must married to R.

Based on above given information we have final arrangement as follow:

5) Answer: E

Clearly, the one who has 8 coins is Nephew of the one who likes Apple.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

6) Answer: E

Clearly, total coin to the one who likes Papaya = 16.

Thus, required square root = √16= 4.

The one who likes papaya is father-in-law of P.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

7) Answer: A

Clearly, E is daughter-in-law of the one who likes Cheery.

Hence, option A is correct choice.

Directions (8-10):

8) Answer: B

We have: “H7J5UQE2”.

After applying condition II, we have:

H7$5%QE2

Again, after applying condition V, we have:

&Y$Z%Y^B

Thus, required code = “&Y$Z%Y^B”.

Hence, option B is correct choice.

9) Answer: E

We have: “E3V8AH9Q”.

After applying condition IV, we have:

E3V₹AH9Q

Again, after applying condition V, we have:

EXV₹AX9Q

Again, after applying condition VI, we have:

£XV₹AX9£

Thus, required code = “£[email protected]₹#XT£”.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

10) Answer: D

We have: U2HVEP59

After applying condition IV, we have:

U2H₹EP59

Again, after applying condition V, we have:

UBH₹EB59

Thus, required code = “$B&₹^BZT”.

Hence, option D is correct choice.
