Solution

If Ram is selected, Peter also has to be selected. If Kavita is selected, David also has to be selected. But, Peter and David cannot be selected together. So, option a) is false.

If both the women are selected, David has to be selected. If David is selected, Peter cannot be selected. So, Ram also cannot be selected. Shyam and Rahim have to be selected together but there is room for only one more person. So, option b) cannot be true.
