DIRECTIONS for the following two questions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
Some children were taking free throws at the basketball court in school during lunch break. Below are some facts about how many baskets these children shot.
i. Ganesh shot 8 baskets less than Ashish.
ii. Dhanraj and Ramesh together shot 37 baskets.
iii. Jugraj shot 8 baskets more than Dhanraj.
iv. Ashish shot 5 baskets more than Dhanraj.
v. Ashish and Ganesh together shot 40 baskets.
Which of the following statements is true?
Let a,d,j,g be the shots put by Ashish, Dhanraj, Ganesh and Jugraj respectively.
According to given conditions we have ,
g = a-8; d + r = 37; j = d + 8; a = 5 + d; a + g = 40
Solving these equations, we have a = 24, d = 19 and j = 27 and r = 18. Hence option A is the correct answer.
