4) Answer: C

5) Answer: A

Directions (6-7) :

6) Answer: D

7) Answer: C

Directions (8-10) :

8) Answer: C

We have:

From I:

We have:

  • P sits third to left of A.
  • R, who neither sits adjacent to A nor P, sits second to the left of B, that means B sits second to the right of P.
  • Only one person sits between C and D.
  • A and S sits together, that means S sits to the immediate left of A.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, P sits immediate left of Q.

Hence, statement I is alone sufficient.

From II:

We have:

  • D sits third to left of B.
  • Only one person sits between B and Q.
  • C, who neither sits adjacent to Q nor D, sits facing S.
  • P sits second to left of S that means P sits immediate right of B.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, P sits immediate left of Q.

Hence, statement II is alone sufficient.

So, if the data either in Statement I alone or in Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

9) Answer: B

From I:

We have:

  • Only three boxes are kept above box S.
  • Box Q and S are kept together.
  • Only two boxes are kept between box Q and box U.
  • Only one box is kept between box T and box V.
  • Box P is neither kept at bottom nor adjacent to box Q that means box P is kept at top and box U is kept below box Q.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, we don’t know exact position of box T.

Hence, statement I is not sufficient.

From II:

We have:

  • Box R is kept second from top.
  • Only three boxes are kept between box U and box R that means box U is kept second from bottom.
  • Box S, which is neither kept adjacent to box R nor box U, which is kept at a gap of two boxes from P, that means box S is kept fourth from bottom.
  • Box Q doesn’t kept adjacent to box U but kept at any place below box P that means box P is kept at top.
  • Box T is kept at any place above box V that means box V is kept at bottom.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, only four boxes are kept above box T.

Hence, statement II alone is sufficient.

So,if the data in Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

10) Answer: A

We have:

  • R, who lives on odd numbered floor but not on floor marked 3, lives just above the one who likes White that means R lives on floor marked 5.
  • Only two person lives between S and the one who likes White, that means S lives on floor marked 1.
  • T, who likes Blue, neither lives adjacent floor of S nor on adjacent floor of R, that means T lives on floor marked 3.
  • One who likes Black lives on topmost floor.

Based on above given information we have:

From I:

We have:

  • U, who neither likes Black nor likes White, lives at a gap of two floors from the one who likes Red, that means U lives on floor marked 2.
  • Only two person lives between Q and the one who likes Green that means Q likes White.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, four person lives above the one who likes Yellow.

Hence, statement I is alone sufficient.

From II:

We have:

  • Q, who lives on adjacent floor of the one who likes blue, lives at a gap of two floors from the one who likes Green.
  • U, who doesn’t lives of top floor, lives just above the one who likes Green, that means U lives on floor marked 2.

Based on above given information we have:

Clearly, we don’t know the exact person ofone who likes Yellow.

Hence, statement II is not sufficient.

So, if the data in Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the question.
