Answers :

Directions (1-5):

  • C has weekend on two days after B.
  • Two persons has weekend between E and F.
  • F has weekend on after C.
  • E doesn’t have weekend before B.
  • D has weekend on after Wednesday.
  • Wednesday is not the weekend for C.
  • Number of person has weekend on before B is as same as after A.
  • From these above statements B should have weekend on either Sunday or Monday. If B has weekend on Monday then it won’t satisfy the second statement. So B should have weekend on Sunday. Then C has weekend on Tuesday. E has weekend on either Monday or Wednesday because F has weekend on after C. If E has weekend on Wednesday then F should has weekend on Saturday. In this scenario we cannot fix A. So E should not have weekend on Wednesday. Hence E has weekend on Tuesday. Two possible cases, case 1 and case2. But in case 1 doesn’t satisfy second statement so this case is eliminated and case 2 will be the final arrangement.
