Directions (1–5): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below.

Five projects P, Q, R, S and T will be completed, only one project in one month, from January to June of the same year. Projects P will be completed immediately before T and project Q will be completed before S. Project Q and S will not be completed on the first month of the year. There will be a month in which no project is completed which is denoted by L. There will be a gap of two months between the months on which project S and Q will be completed. Project R will be completed immediately before the month in which no project is completed. The month in which no project is completed will not be the second and the fourth month of the year.

Q1. On which of the following month Project R will be completed?
(a) February
(b) April
(c) May
(d) can’t be determined
(e) None of these

Q2. How many months’ gap will be there between the months in which Project T and Q will be completed?
(a) None
(b) One
(c) Two
(d) Three
(e) None of these

Q3. Which of the following project will be completed on January?

(b) Q
(c) P
(d) T
(e) None of these

Q4. On which month will Projected S be completed?

(b) Project Q will be completed immediately after the month in which no project is completed.
(c) The month in which no project is completed is exactly between the months in which project S and R will be completed.
(d) All are true
(e) None of these

Directions (1-5):

Step 1: from the given conditions, Project Q and S will not be completed on the first month of the year. It means project Q and S will not be completed in January. There will be a gap of two months between the months on which project S and Q will be completed and Q will be completed before S. So, there will be two possible cases project Q either completed in February or in March.

Step 2: There will be a month in which no project is completed which is denoted by L. The month in which no project is completed will not be the second and the fourth month of the year. It means February and April are not the months in which no project is completed.  Project R will be completed immediately before the month in which no project is completed. By, using this condition case 2 has been eliminated. So, in case 1 May is the month in which no project is completed and is denoted by L and project R is completed in April. Projects P will be completed immediately before T. Hence, project P will be completed in January and Project T will be completed in February. We will get final answer.
