DIRECTIONS for the following two questions: These questions are based on the situation given below: Ten coins are distributed among four people P, Q, R, S such that one of them gets one coin, another gets two coins, the third gets three coins and the fourth gets four coins. It is known that Q gets more coins than P, and S gets fewer coins than R.

Question 20

If the number of coins distributed to Q is twice the number distributed to P then which one of the following is necessarily true?


From the given passage, it is given that Q>P, R>S.

According to the information Q = 2 when P = 1 or Q = 4 when P = 2.

In first case R = 4 and S = 3 and in the second case R = 3 and S = 1.

In both the instances S is odd.
