Answer the questions based on the following information.

In a motor race competition certain rules are given for the participants to follow. To control direction and speed of the motorists, guards are placed at different signal points with caps of different colour. Guard with red cap indicates the direction of participantās movement and guards with green cap indicates the speed of the participantās movement. At any signal point presence of three guards, two guards and one guard with red cap means the participant must stop, turn left and turn right respectively. Signal points with three guards, two guards and one guard with green cap means the participants must move at 10, 4 and 2 km/hour respectively.

Kartikay, one of the participants, starts at a point where his car was heading towards north and he encountered signals as follows: at start point one guard with green cap; after half an hour two guards with red cap and two guards with green cap at first signal; after fifteen minutes one guard with red cap at second signal; after half an hour one guard with red cap and three guards with green caps at third signal; after 24 minutes two guard with red cap and two guards with green cap at fourth signal; after 15 minutes three guard with red cap at fifth signal.

Let us arrange the daughters in the decreasing order of height first.

Kalpana is shorter than Kriti but taller than Kranti.
Therefore, Kriti > Kalpana > Kranti.

Kamlesh is taller than Kriti.

KamleshĀ >Ā Kriti > Kalpana > Kranti.

Kamla is taller than Kamlesh. Kamla is not the tallest. Therefore, Kripa must be the tallest person.

Kripa > Kamla >Ā KamleshĀ >Ā Kriti >Ā Kalpana > Kranti.

Let us arrange the daughters in terms of their qualification.

The shortest person is the most qualified.
Therefore, Kranti must be the most qualified person among the 6 daughters.

Kalpana is more qualified than Kamlesh who is more qualified than Kriti.

Kalpana > Kamlesh > Kriti.

Kamla is less qualified than Kamlesh. Kriti is more qualified than Kamla. Kripa is the least qualified among the daughters.

Kranti > Kalpana > Kamlesh > Kriti > Kamla > Kripa.

Height (in decreasing order):
Kripa > Kamla >Ā KamleshĀ >Ā Kriti >Ā Kalpana > Kranti.

Qualification (in decreasing order):
Kranti > Kalpana > Kamlesh > Kriti > Kamla > Kripa.

Rank of Kamala in the increasing order of height is 5. Therefore, optionĀ B is the right answer.

The machine is arranging the numbers in the increasing order of the sum of the digits on the number.

Input:Ā 245 (11), 316 (10), 436 (13), 519 (15), 868 (22), 710 (8), 689 (23).

The number in the bracket indicates the sum of digits of the given number.

Step 1:Ā 710 (8), 316 (10), 436 (13), 519 (15), 868 (22), 245 (11), 689 (23).

ā“Ā The machine has swapped 710 (8) with 245 (11).

Step 2:Ā 710 (8), 316 (10), 245 (11), 519 (15), 868 (22), 436 (13), 689 (23).

Thus it has swapped 436 (13) with 245 (11).

Step 3:Ā 710 (8), 316 (10), 245 (11), 436 (13), 868 (22), 519 (15), 689 (23).

Thus it has swapped 436 (13) with 519 (15).

Step 4:Ā 710 (8), 316 (10), 245 (11), 436 (13), 519 (15), 868 (22), 689 (23).

Thus it has swapped 519 (15) with 868 (22).

Going by the logic mentioned above,

Input:Ā 655 (16), 436 (13), 764 (17), 799 (25), 977 (23), 572 (14), 333 (9).

Step 1:Ā 333 (9), 436 (13), 764 (17), 799 (25), 977 (23), 572 (14), 655 (16).

Step 2:Ā 333 (9), 436 (13), 572 (14), 799 (25), 977 (23), 764 (17), 655 (16).

Step 3:Ā 333 (9), 436 (13), 572 (14), 655 (16), 977 (23), 764 (17), 799 (25).

This is the required sequence which is achieved in Step 3.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

The given situation is:

The meaning of Cacology is to defectively produced speech; socially unacceptable diction. Thus, i-c.
The meaning of Ethology is the study of human character. Thus, ii-a.
The meaning of Misology is distrust or hatred of reason or reasoning. Thus, iii-d.
The meaning of Cryology is the study of snow and ice. Thus, iv-b
Thus, the sequence is- i-c, ii-a, iii-d, iv-b
Hence, option B is the correct answer.
