The difference between the ages of B and F is 10 years.
Therefore, B and F can be born in (1992,2002), (1993,2003), and (1995, 2005) in any order.
Difference between the ages of A and E is 7 years.
Therefore, A and E can be born in (1995,2002) and (1998,2005) in any order.
Difference between the ages of E and B is 1 year.
Among the pairs obtained so far, only (2002,2003) satisfy this condition. E could not have born in 2003. Therefore, E must have born in 2002 and B must have born in 2002. A must have born in 1995 and F must have born in 1993.

Difference between the ages of D and F is 1. Therefore, D must be born in 1992.

The difference between the ages of C and G is 8 years.
The difference between the ages of G and H is 7 years.
Only 3 years – 1990, 1998 and 2005 are remaining. Therefore, C must be born in 1990, G must be born in 1998 and H must be born in 2005.

The final arrangement is as follows:

1990 – C
1992 – D
1993 – F
1995 – A
1998 – G
2002 – E
2003 – B
2005 – H

C is the oldest person in the group. Therefore, option A is the right answer.

The difference between the ages of B and F is 10 years.

1992 – D
1993 – F
1995 – A
1998 – G
2002 – E
2003 – B
2005 – H

Let the age of H be x.
=> Age of B = x+2
It has been given that x+x+2 = 10
x = 4 years.

Age of H = 4 years.
=> Age of G = 4+7 = 11 years.
Therefore, option C is the right answer.

Total number of coins are 39. Hence we can say thatÂ Â A, B, C, D, E and F have 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 coins with them not necessarily in the same order.

In statement 1 it is given that the number of coins with C is a perfect square, hence C can have either 4 or 9 coins. By statement 5 we can say that A has either 6 ot 7 coins with him. But in statement 2 is is given that theÂ number of coins with A is a prime number hence we can say that A has 7 coins and C has 9 coins.

TheÂ difference between the number of coins with D and E is 4 hence we can say that they have 4 and 8 coins in any order. Hence we can say that B and F have 5, 6 in any order.

Let us assume that B has 6 coins then F will have 5 coins. By statement 3 we can see that E must have 7 coins with him but A has 7 coins hence this case is not possible.

Let us assume that B has 5 coins then we can say that F has 6 coins. Also by statement 3 we can say that the number of coins with E is 4. Consequently D will have 8 coins.

4 – E

5 – B

6 – F

7 – A

8 – D

9 – C

From the arrangement we can see that F has 6 coins. Hence, option C is the correct answer.

Total number of coins are 39. Hence we can say thatÂ Â A, B, C, D, E and F have 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 coins with them not necessarily in the same order.

In statement 1 it is given that the number of coins with C is a perfect square, hence C can have either 4 or 9 coins. By statement 5 we can say that A has either 6 ot 7 coins with him. But in statement 2 is is given that theÂ number of coins with A is a prime number hence we can say that A has 7 coins and C has 9 coins.
TheÂ difference between the number of coins with D and E is 4 hence we can say that they have 4 and 8 coins in any order. Hence we can say that B and F have 5, 6 in any order.

Let us assume that B has 6 coins then F will have 5 coins. By statement 3 we can see that E must have 7 coins with him but A has 7 coins hence this case is not possible.

Let us assume that B has 5 coins then we can say that F has 6 coins. Also by statement 3 we can say that the number of coins with E is 4. Consequently D will have 8 coins.

4 – E

5 – B

6 – F

7 – A

8 – D

9 – C

From the arrangement we can see that the difference between the number of coins with C and B = 9 – 5 = 4. Hence, option A is the correct answer.

Total number of coins are 39. Hence we can say thatÂ Â A, B, C, D, E and F have 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 coins with them not necessarily in the same order.

In statement 1 it is given that the number of coins with C is a perfect square, hence C can have either 4 or 9 coins. By statement 5 we can say that A has either 6 ot 7 coins with him. But in statement 2 is is given that theÂ number of coins with A is a prime number hence we can say that A has 7 coins and C has 9 coins.Â  TheÂ difference between the number of coins with D and E is 4 hence we can say that they have 4 and 8 coins in any order. Hence we can say that B and F have 5, 6 in any order.

Let us assume that B has 6 coins then F will have 5 coins. By statement 3 we can see that E must have 7 coins with him but A has 7 coins hence this case is not possible.

Let us assume that B has 5 coins then we can say that F has 6 coins. Also by statement 3 we can say that the number of coins with E is 4. Consequently D will have 8 coins.

4 – E

5 – B

6 – F

7 – A

8 – D

9 – C

We can see that only option B is correct. Number of coins with F is 6 which is divisible by 6.

The number of coins with B is a prime number, but it is not 3. Thus, the number of coins with B can be either 5 or 7.
3 people have more number of coins than B but less than E. This is possible only when B has 5 coins and E has 9 coins.
Sum of the number of coins with B and A is equal to the number of coins with G. Since, B has 5 coins A can have 3 or 4 coins and accordingly G will have 8 or 9 coins.
But G cannot have 9 coins. Thus, G has 8 coins and A has 3 coins.
The number of coins with C is the average of the number of coins with A and E. Thus, the number of coins with C is 6.
Since F has odd number of coins he should have 7 coins and D should have 4 coins.
Thus, E=9, G=8, F=7, C=6, B=5, D=4 and A=3.
Therefore, E has 9 coins
Hence, option A is the correct answer.

The number of coins with B is a prime number, but it is not 3. Thus, the number of coins with B can be either 5 or 7.
3 people have more number of coins than B, but less than E. This is possible only when B has 5 coins and E has 9 coins.
Sum of the number of coins with B and A is equal to the number of coins with G. Since, B has 5 coins A can have 3 or 4 coins and accordingly G will have 8 or 9 coins.
But G cannot have 9 coins. Thus, G has 8 coins and A has 3 coins.
The number of coins with C is the average of the number of coins with A and E. Thus, the number of coins with C is 6.
Since F has odd number of coins he should have 7 coins and D should have 4 coins.
Thus, E=9, G=8, F=7, C=6, B=5, D=4 and A=3.
As can be observed, A, B, F and E each has odd number of coins whereas D has even number of coins.
Thus, D is the odd man out.
Hence, option C is the correct answer.

The number of coins with B is a prime number, but it is not 3. Thus, the number of coins with B can be either 5 or 7.
3 people have more number of coins than B, but less than E. This is possible only when B has 5 coins and E has 9 coins.
Sum of the number of coins with B and A is equal to the number of coins with G. Since, B has 5 coins A can have 3 or 4 coins and accordingly G will have 8 or 9 coins.
But G cannot have 9 coins. Thus, G has 8 coins and A has 3 coins.
The number of coins with C is the average of the number of coins with A and E. Thus, the number of coins with C is 6.
Since F has odd number of coins he should have 7 coins and D should have 4 coins.
Thus, E=9, G=8, F=7, C=6, B=5, D=4 and A=3.
Thus, the required difference = 7-4 = 3
Hence, option E is the correct answer.

S is the shortest.
3 people are taller than U but shorter than T and R is not one of them. Thus, T and U can be 2nd and 6th tallest or 1st and 5th tallest.
If T and U are 1st and 5th tallest then R is 6th tallest. This is not possible as R is taller than at least 2 people.
Hence, T and U are 2nd and 6th tallest whereas R is the tallest.
P is taller than V but shorter than Q.
Hence, the heights in the decreasing order is R>T>Q>P>V>U>S.
Thus, 6 people are shorter than R.
Hence, option A is the correct answer.
