Solution:

From Statement I,
Only one person has less number of chocolates than T. Q has more number of chocolates than P but less number of chocolates than U. P do not have least number of chocolates. The four possibilities are
Case (i): U > Q > P > _ > T > _
Case (ii): U > Q > _ > P > T > _
Case (iii): U > _ > Q > P > T > _
Case (iv): _ > U > Q > P > T > _
R has more number of chocolates than Q. R is not possible in Case (i) and Case (ii). Hence Case (i) and Case (ii).
Case (iii): U > R > Q > P > T > S
Case (iv): R > U > Q > P > T > S
So Statement I is not sufficient to answer the question.

From Statement II,
Only one person has more chocolates than U. Number of people who has more chocolates than R is equal to the number of people who has less chocolates than S. The two possibilities are
Case (i): R/S > U > _ > _ > _ > R/S

e)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

Solution:

Statement I) Only two people are older than the one who is working in KMB.
>>(KMB)>>>
Number of people younger than U and older than T is the same. More than two people are younger than U.
Case(i) >>U(KMB)>T>>
Case(ii) >U>(KMB)>>T>
Case(iii) U>>(KMB)>>>T
The one who is working in BOB is younger than T.
In Case(iii), BOB is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.
In Case(i), BOB is possible in two places which are given below in Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b).
Case(i)(a) >>U(KMB)>T>(BOB)>
Case(i)(b) >>U(KMB)>T>>(BOB)
Case(ii) >U>(KMB)>>T>(BOB)
The number of people younger than the one who is working in BOB is one less than the number of people older than the one who is working in BOM.
In Case(i)(a), BOM is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.
Case(i)(b) >(BOM)>U(KMB)>T>>(BOB)
Case(ii) >U(BOM)>(KMB)>>T>(BOB)
Given information is not sufficient to get the answer.
Statement II) Q who is working in IDBI is younger than R who is not working in PNB. The number of people younger than R and older than P is the same. S is not working in BOM.
There is not any basic hint to connect the information. So this information is not sufficient to get the answer.
Statement I) & Statement II)
Q who is working in IDBI is younger than R who is not working in PNB. The number of people younger than R and older than P is the same.
Case(i)(b) R(xPNB)>(BOM)>U(KMB)>T>Q(IDBI)>P(BOB)
Case(ii) R(xPNB)>U(BOM)>(KMB)>Q(IDBI)>T>P(BOB)
S is not working in BOM.
In Case(i)(b), S is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.
R(SBI)>U(BOM)>S(KMB)>Q(IDBI)>T(PNB)>P(BOB)
We can obtain the answer after combining both the statements together.
Hence, option a is the correct answer.

Two people went to the zoo between J and B who went to the zoo immediately after F. More than three people went to the zoo between H and I who did not go in december.

a)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are sufficient to answer the question.

b)Â Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

c)Â Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

d)Â Either statement I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

e)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

Solution:

Statement I) L went to the zoo after august in any of the months which is having 30 days. Three people went to the zoo between L and H. The number of people who went to the zoo before L and after K is the same. E went to the zoo immediately before K. Two people went to the zoo between A and E. One person went to the zoo between A and B.
Here L is possible in two places which are given below in Case(i) and Case(ii).

The number of people who went to the zoo between B and H is the same as the number of people who went to the zoo between B and J. No one went to the zoo between J and I.
In Case(ii), I is not possible. So this case is eliminated.
In Case(i) I can be either in october or december.

We cannot get the answer from this information.

Statement II) Less than four people went to the zoo before E who went to the zoo in a month which has 31 days.
Here E is possible in two places which are given below in Case(i) and Case(ii).

The number of people who went to the zoo before E is one more than the number of people who went to the zoo after J. Two people went to the zoo between J and B who went to the zoo immediately after F.
In Case(i), J is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

One person went to the zoo between F and H.
In Case(ii), H is possible in two places which are given below in Case(ii)(a) and Case(ii)(b).

More than three people went to the zoo between H and I who did not go in december. I went to the zoo after F.

We can get the answer from this information.
Hence, option c is the correct answer.

Each of the questions below consist of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

Question 15:Â What is the code for â€˜thereâ€™?
Statement I) In a certain code language â€˜festival season startedâ€™ is coded as â€˜id ri jcâ€™, â€˜vegetable stall on festivalâ€™ is coded as â€˜op mp sv jcâ€™ and â€˜started stall thereâ€™ is coded as â€˜nb id opâ€™.
Statement II) In a certain code language â€˜eat vegetable startedâ€™ is coded as â€˜id sv wjâ€™, â€˜festival stall thereâ€™ is coded as â€˜op nb jcâ€™ and â€˜on button startedâ€™ is coded as â€˜nz id mpâ€™.

a)Â Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

b)Â Either statement I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

c)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

d)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are sufficient to answer the question.

e)Â Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Solution:

Statement I) In the first and the third phrase â€˜startedâ€™ is common. So the code for this will be â€˜idâ€™. Now in the second and the third phrase â€˜stallâ€™ is common. So the code for this will be â€˜opâ€™. Now only â€˜thereâ€™ is remaining in the third phrase which code can be determined easily.
This statement is sufficient to answer the question.
Statement II) Here we can only obtain the code for â€˜startedâ€™. From the given information, we are unable to get the required answer.

Hence, option e is the correct answer.

E â‡’ Q
F â‡’
F is not living in house house P, S and T.
A â‡’ P/S/T
B â‡’ R
C â‡’ P/S/T
D â‡’ P/S/T
E â‡’ Q
F â‡’ U
From this information, we cannot get the definite answer. So this information is not sufficient.
Hence, option e is the correct answer.

Question 17:Â Eight people P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W are sitting around a circular table. Each of them is facing the center of the table. What is the position of R with respect to U.
Statement I) U is third to the right of W. Q is second to the left of S. Three people are sitting between T and S. R is not second to the right of V. Neither S nor T is an immediate neighbour of U. R and S are not immediate neighbours.
Statement II) Three people are sitting between Q and U who is immediately to the right of P. S who is immediately to the right of W is second to the left of U. T who is not an immediate neighbour of U is immediately left of V.

a)Â Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

b)Â Either statement I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

c)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

d)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are sufficient to answer the question.

e)Â Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Solution:

Statement I) Q is second to the left of S. Three people are sitting between T and S. Neither S nor T is an immediate neighbour of U.

U is third to the right of W. R is not second to the right of V. R and S are not immediate neighbours.

After applying all the information given in the question, we have two possible answers. So the given information is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement II) Three people are sitting between Q and U who is immediately right of P.

S who is immediately to the right of W is second to the left of U. T who is not an immediate neighbour of U is immediately left of V.

This statement is sufficient to get the answer.
Hence, option a is the correct answer.

Instructions

Each of the questions below consist of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

Question 18:Â Six people A, B, C, D, E and F are living on six floors of a building in which ground floor is numbered 1 and till the topmost floor is numbered 6. C lives on which of the following floors?
Statement I: F lives on an odd numbered floor but not on the ground floor. Two people live between F and D.
Statement II: One person lives between D and E. A lives on the immediate floor above B.

a)Â Both Statement I and Statement II is not sufficient to answer the question

b)Â Only Statement II is sufficient to answer the question

c)Â Either Statement I alone or Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question

d)Â Both Statement I and Statement II together are necessary to answer the question

e)Â Only Statement I is sufficient to answer the question

Solution:

From Statement I and Statement II, there is no sufficient information to answer the question.
By combining both statements,
F lives on an odd numbered floor but not on the ground floor. Two people live between F and D. The two possibilities are

One person lives between D and E.

A lives on the immediate floor above B. A and B are not possible in Case 1. Hence Case 1 is eliminated.
The final arrangement is

$\therefore$ C lives on floor number 5.
Both Statement I and Statement II together are necessary to answer the question.
Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Question 19:Â What is the code for the word â€˜repeatâ€™?
Statement I: In a certain code language, â€˜once proper repeat againâ€™ is coded as â€˜fg kw bq nrâ€™ and â€˜closely repeat once hereâ€™ is coded as â€˜za nr ly kwâ€™.
Statement II: In a certain code language, â€˜here only right repeatâ€™ is coded as â€˜kw oe pz lyâ€™ and â€˜only right once hereâ€™ is coded as â€˜nr pz oe lyâ€™.

a)Â Only Statement I is sufficient to answer the question

b)Â Only Statement II is sufficient to answer the question

c)Â Both Statement I and Statement II together are necessary to answer the question

d)Â Either Statement I alone or Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question

e)Â Both Statement I and Statement II is not sufficient to answer the question

Solution:

From Statement I,
By comparing both the codes, the code for â€˜repeatâ€™ can be either â€˜kwâ€™ or â€˜nrâ€™.
So Statement I is not sufficient to answer the question.

From Statement II,
By comparing both the codes, the code for â€˜here only rightâ€™ is â€˜oe pz lyâ€™. Only repeat is remaining from the first code. So the code for â€˜repeatâ€™ is â€˜kwâ€™.
So Statement II is sufficient to answer the question.
Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Instructions

Each of the questions below consist of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

Question 20:Â Six people M, N, O, P, Q and R are sitting around a circular table such that the distance between any two immediate neighbours is the same. All of them are facing the center of the table. Each of them has a different number of toffees 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8. If all the people are arranged in alphabetical order starting from M in clockwise direction, then the position of how many people remain unchanged except M?
Statement I) O faces the one whose toffees are the multiple of three. Q is immediately left of M who is having 7 toffees. O sits exactly between R and Q. The number of toffees of R is a cubic number. The one who has 2 toffees faces the one who has 3 toffees.
Statement II) Q neither has 5 nor 6 toffees. N is not an immediate neighbour of R. P does not have 2 toffees.

a)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

b)Â Either statement I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

c)Â Both the statement I and statement II together are sufficient to answer the question.

d)Â Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

e)Â Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Solution:

For getting the answer, we need the position of all the people.
Statement I) O faces the one whose toffees are the multiple of three.
There are two possible cases which are given below in Case(i) and Case(ii).

O sits exactly between R and Q.
R and Q are possible in two places which are given below in Case(i)(a), Case(i)(b), Case(ii)(a) and Case(ii)(b).

Q is immediately left of M who is having 7 toffees.

The number of toffees of R is a cubic number. The one who has 2 toffees faces the one who has 3 toffees.

We did not get the places of all the people from this statement. So it is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement II) alone is also not sufficient to answer the question. Because of not any direct information to start the arrangement.

Statement I) and Statement II) together

Q neither has 5 nor 6 toffees.
In Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b), Q is not possible as per the above given condition. So these cases are eliminated.

N is not an immediate neighbour of R.
In Case(ii)(b), R is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

P does not have 2 toffees.

Hence, option c is the correct answer.
