Solutions (1-5):

(i). In an exam of  150 marks, six persons  P, Q, R, S, T, U got different marks. The  topper got  80% of the total marks i.e. the topper  gets 120  marks. Q gets three fourth of  the total marks that topper gets i.e. Q gets 90 marks. P got more marks than only  two persons.

(120)>- > - >P > - >-

(ii). T doesn’t get the highest or lowest  marks. Q got more marks than P  and T, but not the highest. R gets  two third of the total marks it means R gets 100 marks and  so R is not the topper. U does not get the least marks. From,  all these conditions ,  we understand that  Q got  more  marks than P and T and less than R as R gets 100 marks and Q gets 90 marks and U got the highest and S gets  the  least  marks and T gets the second least mark.

U(120) > R(100) > Q(90) > P > T > S
