Q1. Towards which direction was Harsh facing as he stopped walking? I. Harsh walked 30 meters towards West, took a left turn and walked 20 meters. He again took a left turn and stopped after walking 30 meters. II. Harsh walked 30 meters towards East, took a right turn and walked 20 meters. Then he took a left turn and stopped after walking 30 meters.

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 given in both the statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If the data in both the statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
Solution:
From I
Harsh is facing East as he stops walking.
Thus, only I is sufficient.
From II
Harsh is facing east as he stops walking.
Thus, Only II is sufficient.

Q2. Who among A, B, C, D and E each of a different age, is definitely the oldest? I. C is younger than only E and A. II. B is younger than E but not the youngest.
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.

Solution:
From I, rain is sure good 5 3 9 7
From II he is sure there 3 6 8 5
Combining I and II,
The code for ‘is/ sure’ ---3 / 5
Thus, we can’t find the exact code for ‘sure’.
Therefore, both I and II together are not sufficient.
