Solutions: (1 to 5)

Clearly, I alone and II alone are insufficient as there is not sufficient data in each of these statements.
I & II : From the first statement, we get : P > N, T
From the second, we get : M > R, P
Combining the above two, we get : M > R, P > N, T
The youngest can be either N or T.
Thus, I & II together are not sufficient.

NOTE :- Position from left end + Position from right end = Total students + 1
I : Manoj is 12th from left end and 4th to the left of Hari.
=> Hari’s position from left end = 12+4 = 16th
We did not know the total no. of students from this.
Thus, I alone is not sufficient.
II : Hari’s position from right end = 8th
We did not know the total no. of students from this.
Thus, II alone is not sufficient.
I & II : Combining the above two conditions, we get
Hari’s position from left = 16th and from right = 8th
=> Total students = 16+8-1 = 23
Thus, I & II together are sufficient.

Clearly, I alone and II alone are insufficient.
Combining I & II together, the common word in both statements is red coded as ‘da’
Thus, I & II together are sufficient.

I : Village M is to the West of Village T which is to the South of Village R.
=> M is to the south west of village R, => R is to the north-east of village M.
Thus, I alone is sufficient.
II : Village M is to the South of Village B which is to the West of Village R.
=> M is to the south west of village R, => R is to the north-east of village M.
Thus, II alone is sufficient.
