I : Village R is south east of Village T and there is no specific information about position of village P.

Thus, I alone is insufficient.

Similarly, in II, there is no specific information about position of R.

Thus, II alone is insufficient.

I & II : We know, that T is north of P and Q is south of P. Thus, T, P & Q are in a straight vertical line in that order.

There is still not specific info about position of P. P can be to the west or north-west or south-west of R.

Thus, I & II together are not sufficient.

I : E is shorter than only B.

=> B is the tallest and E is the second tallest. => B > E > A, C, D.

Since, we can’t find the third tallest, I alone is insufficient.

II : C is taller than only A.

=> A is the shortest and C is the fourth tallest. => B,D,E > C > A

Since, we can’t find the third tallest, II alone is insufficient.

I & II : From I and II, we get

B > E > D > C > A.

=> D is the third tallest.

Thus, I & II together are sufficient.

Since one of S and Q sit at the extreme, Q has to sit at the right end and S three places to the right of him. Now that Q is fixed, we can place E as shown in the figure. B and F can’t be at extreme and 2 people are sitting between them. Also, B faces the person who sits third to left of P. Thus, B, F and P can only be placed as shown in the figure. Now C sits second to the left of A. So, C is at the extreme and A second to the right of him. This means D is at the rightmost corner. So, R must sit adjacent to Q and T adjacent to R. The arrangement is as shown below- P and D sit at extreme ends of the rows

Since one of S and Q sit at the extreme, Q has to sit at the right end and S three places to the right of him. Now that Q is fixed, we can place E as shown in the figure. B and F can’t be at extreme and 2 people are sitting between them. Also, B faces the person who sits third to left of P. Thus, B, F and P can only be placed as shown in the figure. Now C sits second to the left of A. So, C is at the extreme and A second to the right of him. This means D is at the rightmost corner. So, R must sit adjacent to Q and T adjacent to R. The arrangement is as shown below- A faces S.

Since one of S and Q sit at the extreme, Q has to sit at the right end and S three places to the right of him. Now that Q is fixed, we can place E as shown in the figure. B and F can’t be at extreme and 2 people are sitting between them. Also, B faces the person who sits third to left of P. Thus, B, F and P can only be placed as shown in the figure. Now C sits second to the left of A. So, C is at the extreme and A second to the right of him. This means D is at the rightmost corner. So, R must sit adjacent to Q and T adjacent to R. The arrangement is as shown below- Two persons – S and T – are seating between V and R.

Since one of S and Q sit at the extreme, Q has to sit at the right end and S three places to the right of him. Now that Q is fixed, we can place E as shown in the figure. B and F can’t be at extreme and 2 people are sitting between them. Also, B faces the person who sits third to left of P. Thus, B, F and P can only be placed as shown in the figure. Now C sits second to the left of A. So, C is at the extreme and A second to the right of him. This means D is at the rightmost corner. So, R must sit adjacent to Q and T adjacent to R. The arrangement is as shown below- P faces the person who sits second to the left of A. S faces the person who sits second to the left of B. Similarly, T faces E who sits second to the left of D.

Now C sits second to the left of A. So, C is at the extreme and A second to the right of him. This means D is at the rightmost corner. So, R must sit adjacent to Q and T adjacent to R. The arrangement is as shown below- F faces V who sits second to the right of T.

From the information given, we can draw a family tree as shown below. We don’t know if F is G’s or D’s daughter. Hence, D has either 0 or 1 child.

From the information given, we can draw a family tree as shown below. Hence, D is C’s Aunt.

Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph will be :

where the numbers in the brackets is the distance between two points. B is in south-west direction from point D.

Thus, Ans – (B)

Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph will be :

where the numbers in the brackets is the distance between two points. If we, point W is 3 m to the north of point A

Distance between W and B = 3+25 = 28.

Thus, Ans – (A)

Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph will be :

where the numbers in the brackets is the distance between two points. As seen from above, distance between B and M = 10+7 = 17

Thus, Ans – (A)

Arrangement : 1 5 8 4 2 1 5 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 5 1 4 1 5 6 8 7 4

1’s which are immediately followed by a perfect square

= (1) (perfect square)

= 1 5 8 4 2 1 5 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 5 1 4 1 5 6 8 7 4

Thus, there is only one such 1.

=> Ans – (B)

Arrangement : 1 5 8 4 2 1 5 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 5 1 4 1 5 6 8 7 4

4’s which are immediately preceded by a digit which has a numerical value more than four = (>4) (4)

= 1 5 8 4 2 1 5 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 5 1 4 1 5 6 8 7 4

Thus, there are two such 4’s.

=> Ans – (C)
