Instructions: Four friends A, B, C and D study in the same class in St. Theresa Public school. The first four ranks in the class were obtained by these four students. They also were the top 4 rankers in Mathematics. The following observations are made based on their overall class ranks and ranks of each subject.

(i) The one with the lower rank in Maths between A and B had the least class rank
(ii) The one with the higher class rank between D and C had the least Math rank
(iii) The one with the lower class rank between B and C, had a better Math rank than exactly two other friends
(iv) The one with the lower Math rank between B and D, had the highest class rank
(v) The one with lower class rank between A and C had the highest Math rank

Note: A lower numerical rank is considered as a higher rank

Answers & Solutions for Logical Reasoning Puzzles for CAT Set-2 PDF:

Answers & Solutions (1 – 5):

First let’s write down the conditions given for Class rank and Math rank separately. We see A and B are present in both the columns. Thus, making assumptions based on them will yield the most result. Let’s first assume A has a lower Math rank than B.

From I, A has the least class rank. Thus, from IV, A has the highest Math rank. This contradicts our assumption. Thus, A definitely has a higher Math rank than B.

Thus, from I. B is 4th in Class rank. From V. B is the second in Math. Since A has higher Math rank than B, A will be the 1st in Math. Applying II, we get D is the 1st in the Class. Further using conditions III and IV, the following table can be formed. 1) Answer (A)
