**5) Answer (a)**

let the number of children in each column be x.Thus, the number of children in each row is 1.125

given, total number of children=72=x(1.125x)

∴x=8.

thus, number of children in a row=1.125x=9

**6) Answer (b)**

There are 32 boys ahead of X and 26 ahead of Y. Since Y is also ahead of X, there are 31 other boys ahead of X. ie there are 5 boys between X and Y.

**7) Answer (b)**

22 boys are standing in front of Kunal in a Queue 12 boys are standing to the back of Rohit

Total boys = 30.

So, rank of Kunal in the queue is 22+1 = 23

Rank of Rohit in the queue is 30 – 12 = 18

Hence, the number of boys between Rohit and Kunal in the queue is 23 – 18 – 1 = 4
