During their school Silver Jubilee Reunion, four alumni were discussing their starting annual salaries back in 1981. The salaries in question were Rupees 40, 50, 60 and 70 thousand per year. Of course the present MD of a private company earned the most. Arvind earned more than Biswajeet, and the doctor earned more than Dhruv the engineer. Chinmay could not remember what he started on. Biswajeet the lawyer did not start on Rs.50,000, nor did Dhruv.

Question 132

# What was the Lawyer's starting salary?

Solution

It is given that

i) Current MD remembers that he earned the most(70,000)

ii) Biswajit and Dhruv did not start on 50,000

iii) Chinmay does not remember what he started on. ( It implies Chinmay was not earning 70,000). The following things are known

We know that Biswajit's profession is Lawyer and Dhruv is an Engineer. From above table we observe that Chinmay is not MD. Thus Arvind is the MD and Chinmay is Doctor

Since neither Biswajit nor Dhruv started their salary at 50,000, Chinmay starting salary was 50,000

Given Arvind's Salary$$>$$ Biswajit's Salary and Doctor's Salary $$>$$ Dhruv's Salary. We obtain the following

The lawyer's starting salary was Rs 60,000
