Question 192

# Which colour is sponsored by Company ‘R’ ?

Solution

Ramesh wears Pink tie and works in company ‘Q’ and Shailesh works in company ‘U’. Also, Lokesh works in company P.

The one wearing Green tie works in company ‘P’, => Lokesh wears green tie.

Hitesh does not work in company ‘R’ or ‘T’ and Nilesh does not work in company ‘T’, => Dinesh works in company T and Nilesh in company R.

The one wearing Blue tie works in company ‘S’, => this only leaves Hitesh who is working in company S, and is wearing blue tie.

Purple colour tie is not sponsored by company ‘R’ and ‘T’, => it is sponsored by company U.

Company ‘T’ does not sponsor Yellow coloured tie, => it is sponsored by company R and this leaves company T with red coloured tie.
