O is immediately below G and only one box is kept below O. Less than two boxes are kept below F. Fâ€™s height is an even number and more than G. F is not immediately above C. Height of F is less than 40 cm.Â  Sum of box immediately below F and immediately below D is 113 cm. As many boxes below F as below D. Only three boxes are kept between B and E. E is kept at the bottom but not at the Stack 3. Height of box at the top of the Stack 1 is 50. G is not kept in the same stack in which B kept.Â  Number of boxes above G is same as below G. Only one box is kept between J and M. M is not at the top. More than one box is kept between X and Z. Height of Z is 63 cm. Number of boxes above X is same as number of boxes above W. U is one of the boxes. Height of U is same as height of W. N is not placed at the top. Difference between the height of box C and G is 25 cm. Height of box C is greater than G. Height of M is 15 cm less than height of E. Sum of top and bottom box of stack 2 is 153 cm. Difference of A and D is 8 cm. Height of D is more than that of A. N height 16 more than Dâ€™s height. Height of X is 3 cm more than height of A.

C) Three

D) Six

E) Five

Directions (1-3) :

Here in code of word

1) First element is number that represent of total number of letters in the word.

2) Middle element is symbol that represent first letter of that word.

3) Last element is a letter that is first letter of word.

Ex. â€˜Johnâ€™ will be written as â€˜[email protected]’.

Where â€˜@â€™ â†’ represent first letter of word which is â€˜Jâ€™

â€˜4â€™ â†’ represent number of letter in that word

â€˜Nâ€™ â†’ represent last letter of that word

Thus, the code Language â€˜Johnâ€™ is â€˜[email protected]â€™, â€˜lovesâ€™ is â€˜5!Sâ€™, â€˜sportâ€™ is â€˜5#Tâ€™

Hence the code for the first letter of the words:

J â€“ @

L â€“ !

S â€“ #

M â€“Â \$

B â€“ %

G â€“ &

A â€“ ^

TheÂ World Design OrganizationÂ is all set to launch its newÂ global programme World

Design ProtopolisÂ in Bengaluru. It is aimed at implementing holistic progress in

megacities across the world and thus making them sustainable. Assumption I tell

about the persons involving in the programme. So, only assumption II follows.

Directions (5-9) :

1) Two boxes are placed between A and C. C is kept at the bottom of Stack 2.

2) Only three boxes are kept between B and E.Â  E is kept at the bottom but not at the Stack 3.

3) G is not kept in the same stack in which B kept.Â  G is not kept in the same stack in which A kept.

4) Height of G is 36 cm.

5) O is immediately below G and only one box is kept below O. Number of boxes above G is same as below G. (We can conclude only 5 box are there in each stack)

6) Height of box at the top of the Stack 1 is 50.

7) Less than two boxes are kept below F. F is not immediately above C. (This conclude F is either in stack 1 or stack 3 and either one or no box is kept below F)

8)Â  As many boxes below F as below D.

By statement 7) and 8) we can conclude only one box is placed below D and F. In stack 3 O is placed so we place F in stack 1)

9) Only one box is kept between J and M. M is not at the top.

10) More than one box is kept between X and Z.

11) Number of boxes above X is same as number of boxes above W.

12) N is not placed at the top.

13) Height of Z is 63 cm.

14) Fâ€™s height is an even number and more than G. Height of F is less than 40 cm. (Height of F is 38 cm)

15) Height of box at the top of the Stack 1 is 50.

16) Difference between the height of box C and G is 25 cm. Height of box C is greater than G. (C â€“ G =25 We know height of G so C â€“ 36 = 25 â†’ C = 61)

15) Sum of box immediately below F and immediately below D is 113 cm. (E + C = 113 so E + 61 = 113 so E =52

16) Sum of top and bottom box of stack 2 is 153 cm. Â ( J + C =153 so J + 61 =153 So J=92)

17) Height of M is 15 cm less than height of E. So M=37

18) Difference of A and D is 8 cm. Height of D is more than that of A. ( D + A = 110 , D â€“ A =8)

19) N height 16 more than Dâ€™s height.

20) Height of X is 3 cm more than height of A.

Note: For height of W =Â  300 â€“ 215 = 85 cm

21) Height of U is same as height of W

Finally, Height of O = 300 â€“ 238 = 62 cm
