Answers:
1. 5;
From (i) mystery of better life - 53 97 79 21
From (ii) life is a mystery - 24 27 79 53
From (iii) she is playing better - 24 21 12 22
From (i) and (ii) life mystery – 79 53
From (ii) and (iii) is – 24
But, we cannot find the code for ‘life’ from combination
of all three.

2. 5;
111 – 21 ÷ 7 × 2 + 4 – 127 = ?
By changing the symbols, we get,
111 × 21 + 7 ÷ 2 – 4 × 127
= 111 × 21 + 7/2 – 4 × 127
= 2331 + 7/2 – 508 = (4669 - 1016)/2 = 3653/2

3. 4;
B O D Y G U A R D

4. 5; From I. Berth is father of Adil
Berth > Berth’s wife ...... (i)
Frank > Donna > Erik .....(ii)
Adil’s mother > Frank ....(iii)
Combining (i), (ii) and (iii); we get
Berth > Chandani > Frank > Donna > Erik
Clearly Chandni is Adil’s mother and Berth’s wife.
But Adil’s score is not mentioned. Hence I is not
sufficient alone.
From II. Nephew of Erik has lowest score.
From I and II together
Berth > Chandani > Frank > Donna > Erik > Adil
Bertha is the winner.
Hence, both I and II are required to answer.


5. 4
6. 3
7. 3
8. 2
9. 4
