Columbus and Leelavati, which are located in different states. One of the children is named Binod. Lancer school’s contestant did not come first. Leelavati school’s contestant’s name is Rahman.

Columbus school’s contestant’s name is not Badal. Which of the following statements is TRUE?


Rahman is from Leelavati. Since Badal is not from Columbus, he is from Lancer. Thus, Binod is from Columbus.
