Directions (11-15): Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statement are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and Given answer:

Q11. What is the code for ‘Banking’?
(I) ‘exam like paper’ is written as ‘Q2K L2V D2O’ in that code language.
(II) ‘events section important’ is written as ‘3%T 2@F 3%J’ in the code language.
If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
If the data even in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both statement I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
From I- Code for banking is – F2Y
From II- Code for banking- 2%H

Q12. Who among R, S, K, P and M is exactly in the middle when they are arranged in ascending order of their heights?
I. P is taller than S but shorter than M.
II. K is taller than S and M but shorter than R.
If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
If the data even in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both statement I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
From I, we have: M > P> S.
From II, we have: K > S, K > M, R > K.
Combining the above two,
we have: R>K>M>P>S
Clearly, M is in the middle.

Q13. How is Rita related to Nita?
I. Prem has only two kids, Rita and Nita. Prem is the mother-in-law of Queen, who is sister-in-law of Nita.
