In an election several candidates contested for a constituency. In any constituency, the winningÂ candidate was the one who polled the highest number of votes, the first runner up was the one whoÂ polled the second highest number of votes, the second runner up was the one who polled the thirdÂ highest number of votes, and so on. There were no ties (in terms of number of votes polled by theÂ candidates) in any of the constituencies in this election.Â In an electoral system, a security deposit is the sum of money that a candidate is required to pay to theÂ election commission before he or she is permitted to contest. Only the defeated candidates (i.e., oneÂ who is not the winning candidate) who fail to secure more than one sixth of the valid votes polled in theÂ constituency, lose their security deposits.

The following table provides some incomplete information about votes polled in four constituencies: A, B,Â C and D, in this election .

The following additional facts are known:

1. The first runner up polled 10,000 more votes than the second runner up in constituency A.
2. None of the candidates who contested in constituency C lost their security deposit. The difference in votes polled by anyÂ pair of candidates in this constituency was at least 10,000.
3. The winning candidate in constituency D polled 5% of valid votes more than that of the first runner up. All the candidatesÂ who lost their security deposits while contesting for this constituency, put together, polled 35% of the valid votes.

The Humanities department of a college is planning to organize eight seminars, one for eachÂ of the eight doctoral students - A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H. Four of them are from Economics,Â three from Sociology and one from Anthropology department. Each student is guided by oneÂ among P, Q, R, S and T. Two students are guided by each of P, R and T, while one student isÂ guided by each of Q and S. Each student is guided by a guide belonging to their department.Â Each seminar is to be scheduled in one of four consecutive 30-minute slots starting at 9:00Â am, 9:30 am, 10:00 am and 10:30 am on the same day. More than one seminars can beÂ scheduled in a slot, provided the guide is free. Only three rooms are available and hence atÂ the most three seminars can be scheduled in a slot. Students who are guided by the sameÂ guide must be scheduled in consecutive slots.

The following additional facts are also known.

1. Seminars by students from Economics are scheduled in each of the four slots.
2. Aâs is the only seminar that is scheduled at 10:00 am. A is guided by R.

Instructions

A shopping mall has a large basement parking lot with parking slots painted in it along aÂ single row. These slots are quite narrow; a compact car can fit in a single slot but an SUVÂ requires two slots. When a car arrives, the parking attendant guides the car to the firstÂ available slot from the beginning of the row into which the car can fit.

For our purpose, cars are numbered according to the order in which they arrive at the lot. ForÂ example, the first car to arrive is given a number 1, the second a number 2, and so on. ThisÂ numbering does not indicate whether a car is a compact or an SUV. The configuration of aÂ parking lot is a sequence of the car numbers in each slot. Each single vacant slot isÂ represented by letter V.

For instance, suppose cars numbered 1 through 5 arrive and park, where cars 1, 3 and 5 areÂ compact cars and 2 and 4 are SUVs. At this point, the parking lot would be described by theÂ sequence 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. If cars 2 and 5 now vacate their slots, the parking lot would now beÂ described as 1, V, V, 3, 4. If a compact car (numbered 6) arrives subsequently followed by anÂ SUV (numbered 7), the parking lot would be described by the sequence 1, 6, V, 3, 4, 7.

Answer the following questions INDEPENDENTLY of each other.
