Solution

Suresh did not begin his homework with Maths or Physics. Also, he did Marathi after doing Geography.

Thus, he start the homework with Geography.

Also, he took rest immediately after Physics homework and English homework immediately after taking rest, and there was a gap of 2 hours between Maths and English.

=> He started doing Physics homework in the 3rd hour which is immediately followed by rest and English homework respectively and in the end he did Marathi homework.

Since, he started doing English homework at 2.00 p.m., thus he started doing homework at 10.00 a.m and finished at 4.00 p.m.

There is a gap of 3 hours between homework of Marathi and Maths.
