**Direction (1-3): 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 statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and give answer****(a)**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.**(b)**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.**(c)**if the data**either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient**to answer the question.**(d)**if the data in**both statements I and II together are not sufficient**to answer the question.**(e)**if the data in**both statements I and II together are necessary**to answer the question.**Q1. Statement: Six boys J, K, L, M, N, O are there in a classroom each of them is of different weights. Who among the following is the lightest?****I.**M is lighter than only N and K. J is lighter than M but heavier than O.**II**. M is heavier than only three boys.**Q2.

E sits immediate right of C.**II.**E sits third to the right of D. Only one person sits between E and A. F sits to the right to E. C is an immediate neighbor of E.**Solution (1-3):**

**S1. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**

**From I**- N\K > N/K > M > J>O > __ OR N/K > N/K > M > __ > J > O OR N/K > N/K > M > J >__> O , So from I we are not able to decide where L placed.

**From II**- M is heavier than only 3 people from this also we cannot know who is the lightest as there is a possibility .

From both I and II we cannot get who is the lightest boy.

**Solutions (7-10):**

**Directions (11-15): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:**

Seven boxes A, B, C, D, E, F, G are kept one above the other containing different number of chocolates. Not more than three boxes are kept below A. Two boxes are kept between A and the box containing 41 chocolates, which is kept above Box A. D contains thrice the number of chocolates than box B. Box C contains 50 number of chocolates.

Only one box is between the box containing 50 chocolates and the one which contains 39 chocolates. Two boxes are between the box containing 50 chocolates and the one which contains 64 chocolates. The number of boxes between C and D is same as the number of boxes between C and the box which contains 13 chocolates. Box F contains 80 chocolates. One box contains 83 chocolates.

(e) All are true

**Q15. Which among the following boxes is kept immediately below box B?**(a) G

(b) C

(c) A

(d) No One

(e) none of these

**Solution (11-15):**

**Sol. (i).**From the conditions, Not more than three boxes are kept below A. Two boxes are kept between A and the box containing 41 chocolates, which is kept above Box A. Only one box is kept between box containing 41 chocolates and the box which contains 39 chocolates. Only one box is between the box containing 50 chocolates and the one which contains 39 chocolates. Box C contains 50 number of chocolates. Two boxes are between the box containing 50 chocolates and the one which contains 64 chocolates. The number of chocolates in box G is a cube of a number So, it contains 64 chocolates. From all these statements, we get three possible cases.

**(ii).**From conditions, D contains thrice the number of chocolates than box B, so D contains 39 chocolates and B contains 13 chocolates. The number of boxes between C and D is same as the number of boxes between C and the box which contains 13 chocolates, So from this statement case 2 and case 3 gets eliminated as there is no place for box B to be placed. Box F contains 80 chocolates, so it gets placed just above B. One box contains 83 chocolates, so A contains 83 chocolates and box E contains 41 chocolates. We will get the final solution.
