II) Continuing the global crackdown on Pakistan and its terrorism exports, the United States has decided to impose travel restrictions on and limit the movement of Pakistani diplomats.

Directions (1-4) :

Train departs at a station at **->6.30 am. It takes 190 minutes to reach destination which means 3 hours 10 minutes. 6.30+3.10->9.40->@+

9.40 am+35 minutes=10.15 am=>&^

9.15am+20+10=9.15am+30=>[email protected]@

Departure time of train is 10.50 am.

He has to reach the station 5 minutes earlier which means that he should be in the station at 7.15 am->#^.

Directions (5-9) :

We have:

• Gopal sits third to right of Jetan, who sits second to right of one who visits Lucknow, who neither sits immediate neighbor of Gopal nor immediate neighbor of one who visits Patna, that means one who visits Lucknow and Jetan sits facing in same direction.
• Immediate neighbor of Jetan sits facing in same direction but opposite of Jetan. One who visits Chennai sits third to right of one who visits Raipur, who sits immediate neighbor of Gopal.
• One who visits Raipur sits facing center and sits second to right of Deepa.

Based on above given information we get two different cases:

Case 1: Jetan sits facing center.

Again, we have:

• Rajan sits immediate left of Jetan, who neither visits Delhi nor sits immediate neighbor of Ajay, that means Ajay doesnâ€™t visit Lucknow.
• Rinku, who neither visits Chennai nor sits immediate neighbor of one who visits Lucknow, sits third to right of Jeet.Rinku sits immediate right of Ajay. Thus case (1a) & (1b) is not valid.
• Menu sits third to left of one who visits Jaipur. Deepa doesnâ€™t visit Varanasi and one who visits Chandigarh sits second to right of one who visits Delhi, who sits facing in opposite direction to one who visits Jaipur.
• Number of person sitting between one who visits Patna and Chandigarh is same as one who visits Varanasi and Jaipur, that means Rinku must visit Varanasi. At least three person sits facing outward, that means Gopal must sits facing outward. Neither Rajan nor Rinku does not visit Delhi. Rinku does not visit Chandigarh. Rinku Is Not Visits Lucknow
• Thus, case (2a) is not valid.

Based on above given information we get:

Since the US imposed restrictions on Pakistan diplomats, Pakistan took a reciprocal restriction on the movement of US diplomats.

So, Statement II is the Cause and Statement I is the effect.
