Sol. From statement I and II together:

Hence, the data in statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

S12. Ans. (d)
Sol. From statement I and II together, we can’t determine the code for survivor. Hence, the data given in statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

S13. Ans. (c)
Sol. From statement I alone:

Hence, the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.

S14. Ans. (a)
