Sixteen patients in a hospital must undergo a blood test for a disease. It is known that exactlyÂ one of them has the disease. The hospital has only eight testing kits and has decided to poolÂ blood samples of patients into eight vials for the tests. The patients are numbered 1 throughÂ 16, and the vials are labelled A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. The following table shows the vialsÂ into which each patientâ€™s blood sample is distributed.

If a patient has the disease, then each vial containing his/her blood sample will test positive. IfÂ a vial tests positive, one of the patients whose blood samples were mixed in the vial has theÂ disease. If a vial tests negative, then none of the patients whose blood samples were mixed inÂ the vial has the disease.

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

The patients in

Vial A: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

Vial B: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Vial C: 5,6,7,8,13,14,15,16

Vial D:1,2,3,4,9,10,11,12

Vial E:3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16

Vial F:1,2,5,6,9,10,13,14

Vial G:2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16

Vial H:1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15

IfÂ vial C tests positive and vials A, E and H test negative thenÂ Patient 6 must have disease as all other patients in Vial C expect patient 6 are present in at least one of A, E, H.

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The patients in

Vial A: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

Vial B: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Vial C: 5,6,7,8,13,14,15,16

Vial D:1,2,3,4,9,10,11,12

Vial E:3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16

Vial F:1,2,5,6,9,10,13,14

Vial G:2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16

Vial H:1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15

Suppose vial A tests positive and vials D and G test negative then the patient who tested positive must be one of patient 13 or 15.

Patient 13 or 15 are not present in vial B. So, A is not the answer.

Both patients present in vial C. Even if tested positive or negative we can’t know who has got the disease.Â So, C is not the answer.

Both patients present in vial H. Even if tested positive or negative we can’t know who has got the disease.Â So, H is not the answer.

only patient 15 is present in vial E, if tested positive then patient 15 has the disease else patient 13 as disease.

Hence Option 2 is correct.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The patients in

Vial A: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

Vial B: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Vial C: 5,6,7,8,13,14,15,16

Vial D:1,2,3,4,9,10,11,12

Vial E:3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16

Vial F:1,2,5,6,9,10,13,14

Vial G:2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16

Vial H:1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15

If vials C and D negative then no patient could test negative. Hence A is correct answer.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let one of the patients, patient 1 or patient 16 has the disease and his blood is mixed with other them all 8 vials will tests positive. â‡’

8 has to be one of the answers.

If patient 2 and patients 16â€™s blood is mixed of one of them has the disease then 7 of the 8 vials will test positive. So 7 has to be there

in the option.

If 1 has the disease and 1, 7 are mixed then 6 out the 8 vials tests positive.

IF 1 has the disease and 1,9 are mixed then 5 of the 8 vials tests positive,

Now, let us assume that patient 1 has the disease if his blood is not mixed,

then 4 vials will definitely show positive.

Hence 3 is the correct answer.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The cumulative orders booked by 19th are 337 and that of 18th are 332=> No. orders booked on 19th are 5

Similarly we can find the orders booked on that day till 14th.

Number of orders lost that were booked on 12th = Cumulative orders lost till 14th-Cumulative orders lost till 13th =92-91=1

Similarly, the number of orders lost till 17th can be found out.

Number of orders delivered on 13th are 11 out of which 4 are orders which were booked in 11th so, 7 must be the orders which were booked on 12th.

Similarly, we can find the orders which took 1day and 2 days to get delivered till 17th.

Now, total number of orders booked on 12th will be 7+6=1=14.

Fraction of orders booked on 15th that were lost = 12/28

Fraction of orders booked on 16th that were lost = 2/25

Fraction of orders booked on 13th that were lost =2/31

Fraction of orders booked on 14th that were lost = 8/30.

.’. Option A is correct answer.

6)Â AnswerÂ (C)

The cumulative orders booked by 19th are 337 and that of 18th are 332=> No. orders booked on 19th are 5

Similarly we can find the orders booked on that day till 14th.

Number of orders lost that were booked on 12th = Cumulative orders lost till 14th-Cumulative orders lost till 13th =92-91=1

Similarly, the number of orders lost till 17th can be found out.

Number

of orders delivered on 13th are 11 out of which 4 are orders which were

booked in 11th so, 7 must be the orders which were booked on 12th.

Similarly, we can find the orders which took 1day and 2 days to get delivered till 17th.

Now, total number of orders booked on 12th will be 7+6+1=14.

The total number of orders placed on 13th = 21+8+2 = 31

FRom the table we can determine that among options, number of orders booked on 13th are maximum.

**7)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The cumulative orders booked by 19th are 337 and that of 18th are 332=> No. orders booked on 19th are 5

Similarly we can find the orders booked on that day till 14th.

Number of orders lost that were booked on 12th = Cumulative orders lost till 14th-Cumulative orders lost till 13th =92-91=1

Similarly, the number of orders lost till 17th can be found out.

Number

of orders delivered on 13th are 11 out of which 4 are orders which were

booked in 11th so, 7 must be the orders which were booked on 12th.

Similarly, we can find the orders which took 1day and 2 days to get delivered till 17th.

Now, total number of orders booked on 12th will be 7+6+1=14.

From the table we can determine that among options, number of orders booked on 13th are maximum.

For 15 the delivery ratio = 8/8 = 1

For 16 the delivery ratio = 13/10 = 1.3

For 13 the delivery ratio = 21/8 = 2.625

For 14 the delivery ratio = 15/3 = 5

Hence Option D

**8)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Similarly we can find the orders booked on that day till 14th.

Similarly, the number of orders lost till 17th can be found out.

of orders delivered on 13th are 11 out of which 4 are orders which were

booked in 11th so, 7 must be the orders which were booked on 12th.

Similarly, we can find the orders which took 1day and 2 days to get delivered till 17th.

Now, total number of orders booked on 12th will be 7+6+1=14.

FRom the table we can determine that among options, number of orders booked on 13th are maximum.

Average time can be calculated as follows

14 is the least

**9)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

There are 12 plots and each of them got even number of plots. So, possible cases are 4,4,2,2 or 6,2,2,2.

From 4, A and B got more plots than D. So, the only possible case is A, B each got 4 and C,D each got 2.

From 6, D has to get two adjacent plots and From 8, plots of C, D are nit adjacent to each other => D must have got plots in X3, X4.

C already has two plots in X1, Z2. So, the corner plot Z4 should belong to B.

From 7, B has a plot in each row and each column. So, X2 should belong to B.

Now, out of the remaining Y2, Y3, Y4 and Z3 three plots belong to A and one belongs to B.

Till now B hasn’t got any plot in Third column and 2nd row.

So, Y3 belongs to B and Y2, Y4, Z3 belongs to A.

Let the number of trees in Y4 be 4x from 3,Â number of trees in Y3, Y2 will be 2x, x respectively.

The number of teak trees=7x+21

.’. Number of mango trees=14x+42

The table now looks like:

Each plot had trees in non-zero multiples of 3 or 4 and none of the plots had the same number of trees and from 2, BÂ didn’t have the largest number of trees in a plot => x<8.

x can’t be 7,5,3,2,1 as for these cases at least one of x,2x,4x is neither multiple of 3 or 4.

x can be 6 or 4.

If x=6, number of Teak trees will be 63 and Mango trees will be 126 => Number of Pine trees= 205-126-63=16 but number of trees in Z3+Z4>16 so, x$\ne\ $6.

If x=4, Number of Teak trees=49 and Mango trees=98 => Number of Pine trees=58. Valid case.

Number of trees with A= 30+5x=50.

From 1, number of treesÂ with C, D= 30, 56 respectively.

So, number of trees in Z2= 18.

.’. Number of trees with B= 205-50-30-56=69.

From 2, largest number of trees in a plot is 32. They can be in the plot of either B or D. If they are from B, they have to be from X2 but in that case number of trees in Z1=1 which is neither a multiple of 3 or 4.

So, highest number of trees in a plot are with D and it is 32 -=> number of trees in X3, X4 are 32, 24 in any order.

So, number of trees in X2= 98-56-12=30

.’. Number of trees in Z1=69-30-28-8=3.

The final table will look like:

.’. Number of Mango trees=98.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

There are 12 plots and each of them got even number of plots. So, possible cases are 4,4,2,2 or 6,2,2,2.

From 4, A and B got more plots than D. So, the only possible case is A, B each got 4 and C,D each got 2.

From 6, D has to get two adjacent plots and From 8, plots of C, D are

nit adjacent to each other => D must have got plots in X3, X4.

C already has two plots in X1, Z2. So, the corner plot Z4 should belong to B.

From 7, B has a plot in each row and each column. So, X2 should belong to B.

Now, out of the remaining Y2, Y3, Y4 and Z3 three plots belong to A and one belongs to B.

Till now B hasn’t got any plot in Third column and 2nd row.

So, Y3 belongs to B and Y2, Y4, Z3 belongs to A.

Let the number of trees in Y4 be 4x from 3, number of trees in Y3, Y2 will be 2x, x respectively.

The number of teak trees=7x+21

.’. Number of mango trees=14x+42

The table now looks like:

Each plot had trees in non-zero multiples of 3 or 4 and none of the

plots had the same number of trees and from 2, B didn’t have the largest

number of trees in a plot => x<8.

x can’t be 7,5,3,2,1 as for these cases at least one of x,2x,4x is neither multiple of 3 or 4.

x can be 6 or 4.

If x=6, number of Teak trees will be 63 and Mango trees will be 126

=> Number of Pine trees= 205-126-63=16 but number of trees in

Z3+Z4>16 so, x$\ne\ $6.

If x=4, Number of Teak trees=49 and Mango trees=98 => Number of Pine trees=58. Valid case.

Number of trees with A= 30+5x=50.

From 1, number of trees with C, D= 30, 56 respectively.

So, number of trees in Z2= 18.

.’. Number of trees with B= 205-50-30-56=69.

From

2, largest number of trees in a plot is 32. They can be in the plot of

either B or D. If they are from B, they have to be from X2 but in that

case number of trees in Z1=1 which is neither a multiple of 3 or 4.

So, highest number of trees in a plot are with D and it is 32 -=> number of trees in X3, X4 are 32, 24 in any order.

So, number of trees in X2= 98-56-12=30

.’. Number of trees in Z1=69-30-28-8=3.

The final table will look like:

Sequence of trees received by Abha, Bina, Chitra and Dipti is 50,69,30,56.

11)Â AnswerÂ (A)

There are 12 plots and each of them got even number of plots. So, possible cases are 4,4,2,2 or 6,2,2,2.

From 4, A and B got more plots than D. So, the only possible case is A, B each got 4 and C,D each got 2.

From 6, D has to get two adjacent plots and From 8, plots of C, D are

nit adjacent to each other => D must have got plots in X3, X4.

C already has two plots in X1, Z2. So, the corner plot Z4 should belong to B.

From 7, B has a plot in each row and each column. So, X2 should belong to B.

Now, out of the remaining Y2, Y3, Y4 and Z3 three plots belong to A and one belongs to B.

Till now B hasn’t got any plot in Third column and 2nd row.

So, Y3 belongs to B and Y2, Y4, Z3 belongs to A.

Let the number of trees in Y4 be 4x from 3, number of trees in Y3, Y2 will be 2x, x respectively.

The number of teak trees=7x+21

.’. Number of mango trees=14x+42

The table now looks like:

Each plot had trees in non-zero multiples of 3 or 4 and none of the

plots had the same number of trees and from 2, B didn’t have the largest

number of trees in a plot => x<8.

x can’t be 7,5,3,2,1 as for these cases at least one of x,2x,4x is neither multiple of 3 or 4.

x can be 6 or 4.

If x=6, number of Teak trees will be 63 and Mango trees will be 126

=> Number of Pine trees= 205-126-63=16 but number of trees in

Z3+Z4>16 so, x$\ne\ $6.

If x=4, Number of Teak trees=49 and Mango trees=98 => Number of Pine trees=58. Valid case.

Number of trees with A= 30+5x=50.

From 1, number of trees with C, D= 30, 56 respectively.

So, number of trees in Z2= 18.

.’. Number of trees with B= 205-50-30-56=69.

From 2, largest number of trees in a plot is 32. They can be in the

plot of either B or D. If they are from B, they have to be from X2 but

in that case number of trees in Z1=1 which is neither a multiple of 3 or

4.

So, highest number of trees in a plot are with D and it is 32 -=> number of trees in X3, X4 are 32, 24 in any order.

So, number of trees in X2= 98-56-12=30

.’. Number of trees in Z1=69-30-28-8=3.

The final table will look like:

Number of PIne trees received by Chitra = 18.

12)Â AnswerÂ (B)

nit adjacent to each other => D must have got plots in X3, X4.

C already has two plots in X1, Z2. So, the corner plot Z4 should belong to B.

From 7, B has a plot in each row and each column. So, X2 should belong to B.

Now, out of the remaining Y2, Y3, Y4 and Z3 three plots belong to A and one belongs to B.

Till now B hasn’t got any plot in Third column and 2nd row.

So, Y3 belongs to B and Y2, Y4, Z3 belongs to A.

Let the number of trees in Y4 be 4x from 3, number of trees in Y3, Y2 will be 2x, x respectively.

From point 3, D1>D2>D3

D scored 2 points till round R3 and D1>D3>D2 the possible scenarios are :

Case D1: 3,2,-3

In this case the points of A in R1, R3, R2 will be -1,2/-2, 1 in any

possible combination the sum will not be 6. So, this case is invalid.

Case D2: 2,1,-1

In this case the points of A in R1, R3, R2 will be 2/-2, 1/-3, -1/3

so, if the points in R1, R3, R2 are 2,1,3 the case is valid and no other

cases are possible.

Case D3: 3,1,-2

In this case the points of A in R1, R3, R2 will be -1, 1/-3/1, 2/-2

in any possible combination the sum will not be 6. So, this case is

invalid.

.’. Points of A,D in (R1,R2,R3) are (2,3,1) and (2,-1,1) respectively.

Since A got +3 in R2, he is only the one to bid h in R2 and points of B and C in round 2 are -1,-1 i.e they bid L, L.

Since A and D got 2 points each in R1, C and B must have got -2, -2 i.e they bid L, L.

Since A and D got 1 point in R3, C and B must also have got 1 in R3 i.e they bid L, L.

With this data, the table now looks like:

No information is given about the individual scores in R4, R5, R6.

Given In exactly two out of the six rounds, Arun was the only player who bid Hi.

Let R.x, R.y, R.z represent R4, R5, R6 in any order.

Let A bid H in R.x=> B,C,D bid L.

The table now looks like:

For A, R.x+R.y+R.z=1 => R.y+R.z=-2

For B, R.x+R.y+R.z=1 => R.y+R.z=2

For C, R.x+R.y+R.z=-3 => R.y+R.z=-2

For D, R.x+R.y+R.z=-3.=> R.y+R.z=-2

(R.y, R.z) for A can be (-3,1) or (-1,-1)

Case A1:

If for A, (R.y, R.z)=(-3,1)

Since for both C,D: R.y+R.z=-2

We can’t get any combination such that the total points of B,C,D are obtained.

Case A2:

If for A, (R.y, R.z)=(-1,-1).the (R.y, R.z) of B,C,D can be (3,-1), (-1,-1), (-1,-1) and they must have bid (H,H), (L,H), (L,H) respectively while A must have bid (L, H)

Hence this case is valid.

The final table looks like:

Number of schools with only F1 and F4 be ‘d’

From the information given in the question we will get the following Venn diagram.

From 5, b+141+3x=313 => b+3x=172….(i)

From 8, b+x+40+x=162 => b+2x=122….(ii)

(ii)-(i) gives x=50 => b=22

From 9, 237+3x+c+d=279+3x=d => c=42

Total number of schools =600 => 313+25+c+x+d+26+24+20+80=600 => d=20.

The final table looks like:

The total number of schools having only F1 and F3= c=42
