Directions (6-10): 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 statement I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question
(e) If the data in both statement I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

Q6. J, K, L, M, N, O, P and R are eight friends sitting around a circular table facing the centre. What is the position of R with respect to O?
I. Neither P nor O is an immediate neighbor of K or L. L is fourth to the right of K.
II. R is second to the right of M and second to the left of J, who is not the neighbor of L.

S6.Ans.(d)
Sol.  From I and II.

Hence both the statement is not sufficient to answer the question.

Q7.Who among A, B, C, D and E is the shortest?
I. B is either taller or equal to C, and E is either shorter or equal to A.
II. D is taller than B and either taller or equal to E.

S7.Ans.(d)
Sol. From I: B≥C,E≤A
From II: E≤D>B
From Both I and II: A≥E≤D>B≥C
Hence both are not sufficient to answer the question.

Q8. How is N related to P?
I. Q is sister of N, who is brother of S. Q is mother of L, who is sister of P.
II. N is brother of K, who is husband of L, who is mother of G, who is sister of P.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. From I:

Hence N is maternal uncle of P.
From II:

N is uncle of P. Hence Either I or II is sufficient to answer the question.

Q9.What is the position of W with respect to J in a row of 22 students who all are facing north?
I. T is fifth from the left end and W is sixth from the right end. J is exactly between T and W.
II. W is seventh to the right of P, who is tenth from the left.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. From I:T is 5th from the left.
W is 6th from the right= 22-6+1=17thfrom the left
Students between T and W=22-(5+6)=11
J’s position from left is 11.
Hence W is 6th to the right of J.
Only I is sufficient to answer the question.
