Solution

We have the following information: (Type, Colour)

1 and 4. B-R, D-R, E-R, B-R, D-R............ Red

2. A-Y, B-Y, C-Y............ Yellow

3. C-B, D-B, E-B.............. Brown

Now, we are left with 2 of A, 1 of C, and 1 of E.

We also have two yellow envelopes and two brown envelopes.

It is given that A has to be in yellow envelopes. Hence, both the remaining cards from A shall go to yellow envelopes.

This means. the left-out cards from C and E shall go to brown envelopes.

Red: B,B,D,D,E

Yellow: A,A,A,B,C

Brown: C,D,E,C,E

Option 2 is correct.
