Sol. From statement I alone:
L > I > K > J > M > N
Hence, data given in statement I alone is sufficient to answer.

S2. Ans. (d)
Sol. From both statements, we can’t get the answer. So, data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer. S4. Ans. (a)
Sol. From statement I and II together, we find that “acquire” is coded as “cp”. So, data given in both statements I and II together are sufficient to answer.   S8. Ans. (d)
Sol. From both statements, we can’t get the answer. So, data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. From statement II alone:
P/N > N/P > Q > O > M
Hence, data given in statement II alone is sufficient to answer.

Solution (10-12):
S10. Ans. (d)
