Answers:

1. 3 
2. 1 
3. 5 
4. 3 
5. 1 

6. 4


7. 5

We can’t determine the positing of O with respect to R.

We can’t determine the position of O with respect to R. But, from I and II we can easily get the position of O with respect to R. Thus, Both statements I and II are necessary to answer the question.

8. 5

From I.
Possible birth day date - 21, 22
So I alone is not sufficient

From II.
Possible birthday date - 22, 23 & 24
So, II alone is not sufficient
But, from combining I and II
We get, 22 as birthday date.

So, both statemetns data are necessary to answer the question.

9. 1

From I.
We get total no. of students in class = 52
Seeta’s ranks from bottom is 23.
So, Seeta’s ranks from top = (52– 23) + 1 = 30
So, data in statement I is sufficient.

Form II.
We can’t determine the rank of seeta from statement two.

So, data in statement II is not sufficient.

10. 4

So, We can’t know that Rohit is in which direction of shilpa. So, data in statement I alone is not sufficient.

From II

So, data in statement two alone is not sufficient

From I and II
After combining statement I and II we don’t know the position of Rohit with respect to Shilpa.

So, data in statement I and II together. are not sufficient.

11. 4

From I:

Statement I alone is not sufficient

From II.

Statement II alone is not sufficient
From I and II


We can’t know the relationship between X and Y from statement I and II. So data in statement I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
