**Answers :**

**Direction (1-4):**

1) The last digit of the account number is divided by 3 but the digit is not 3.

That means the digit will be 6 or 9.

2) The difference of first and last digit is greater than 6.

That means the last digit is 9 and 1^{st} digit is 1 or 2.

3) The second digit of the account number is an even prime number.

4) The 2^{nd}, 3^{rd} and 4^{th} numbers are consecutive numbers starting from 2^{nd} digit.

5) The 5^{th} and 6^{th} digit are even numbers greater than 4 and 6 respectively.

It means 5^{th} digit is 6 or 8 and 6^{th} digit is 8.

6) The sum of 6^{th }and 1^{st} digit is greater than 9.

That means the 1^{st} digit is 2.

7) The 8^{th} digit is same as the 1^{st} digit and 7^{th} digit is sum of 1^{st} and 2^{nd} digit.

Hence 8^{th} digit is 2 and 7^{th} digit is 4.

8) The 9^{th} and 5^{th} digits are same and are more than 7.

It means 9^{th} and 5^{th} digits are 8 (ref **point (5)**)

**Hence Ajay account number is 2234884289**

**1) Answer: E**

**2) Answer: B**

**3) Answer: B**

**4) Answer: A**

**Direction (****5-7):**

P‘s position in eating competition was just above U but in drinking competition he was just below R.

S ‘s position in drinking competition was just above V but in eating competition, he was just below T. No persons were assigned positions between P and S in both competitions.

At least four persons got positions above P in eating competition and at least four persons are below him in drinking competition. R did not get the highest or the lowest position in any race. U‘s performance was better than V’s in both the competitions. So, the final arrangement is—

**5) Answer: A**

**6) Answer: D**

**7) Answer: C**

**8) Answer: D**

Virat faced 200 balls in the series and scored at the strike rate of 162.5.

(162.5% of 200 is 325, implies Virat scored 325 runs in the series at an average of 65.)

The average of Rohit in 5 matches is 8 more than Rahane but 5 less than Virat.

(Implies, average of Rahane is 13 less than Virat i.e. 52. Means, Rahane scored 260 runs in the series.)

**Hence, statement I and III are sufficient to answer the question.**

**9) Answer: D**

From the question, Renu has two month semester break at the end of each semester and we need to find which months she has semester break.

From the statement I, Each semester is of 6 months, her next semester starts in either the month of November or December.

Above statement does not give information about the start or the end of semester. It could be either November or December.

Hence, statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the Question.

From the statement II, Next semester start in a month of 31 days.

There are more than one month which have 31 days.

Hence, statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the Question.

From the statement I and II together, Each semester is of 6 months, her next semester starts in either the month of November or December.

From the statement II, Next semester start in a month of 31 days.

December has 31 days, so semester starts in the month of December, and ends after six months. So semester ends in May.

So, semester break will be in June and July.

So, both the statements are needed for finding the answer.

**10) Answer: B**

By using I and III statement we can see that all person are arranged in a circular table.
