**Directions (1-5): Study the information carefully and answer the questions given below**

**In a zoo there are six spots A, B, C, D, E, F which have inhabited different animals i.e. lion, tiger, chimpanzee, monkey, giraffe and bear and in different number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10. The zoo are divided equally in two categories Î± and Î².**

**E has giraffe. Î² category zoo does not has chimpanzee. C has the 2nd least number of animals. F is not Î± category zoo. C and E are in same category. The number of chimpanzee which is not an odd number, is equal to the sum of the number of lion and bear. Monkeys are in highest number. B and D are in same category. C and F do not belong to same category. B has 4 animals. A and the zoo which has giraffe belong to same category. The number of lion is more than the number of tiger. A and D does not have lion and bear.**

**Q1. What is the number of giraffe in zoo E?**

4

3

2

5

none of these

Solution:

E has giraffe. C has the 2nd least number of animals. F is not Î± category zoo So, F is Î². C and F do not belong to same category, so C is Î±. B has 4 animals

The number of chimpanzee, which is not an odd number, is equal to the sum of the number of lion and bear. Monkeys are in highest number. So only one possibility is there, Lion/bear- 2/4 and chimpanzee-6. So, either A can have monkey or D. A and D does not has lion and bear. So in case 1 D has chimpanzee and in case2 A has chimpanzee. In both the cases C has tiger and E has 5 giraffe. Case1-

Case2-

C and E are in same category. A and the zoo which has giraffe belong to same category. The number of lion is more than the number of tiger. B and D are in same category. So, lion are 4 in number. Case1-

Case2-

Î² category zoo does not has chimpanzee. So, case1 gets eliminated. The final arrangement is:

The number of chimpanzee, which is not an odd number, is equal to the sum of the number of lion and bear. Monkeys are in highest number. So only one possibility is there, Lion/bear- 2/4 and chimpanzee-6. So, either A can have monkey or D. A and D does not has lion and bear. So in case 1 D has chimpanzee and in case2 A has chimpanzee.

Case2-

Î² category zoo does not has chimpanzee. So, case1 gets eliminated. The final arrangement is:

**Q2. In which of the following zoo is tiger inhabited?**

E

F
