Q1. How is P related to Mr X?

I. P is the grandson of X’s father.
II. X has no sisters but has several friends and each of his friends is the only son in his respective family.
If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question
Solution:
From I: We get P is either nephew or son of Mr. X so we can’t say the exactly relation between P and X.
From II: The information does not give the clue to reach answer.
So both I and II is not sufficient to answer the question.
Q2. In which direction was the tourist train XYZ running?

If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question
Solution:
We do not have any information about the position of sun and also the position of the person gives no clue about the direction of moving train.

If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
If the data in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question
If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question

From I: The symbol >, *, = and have been used with some other symbols while coding STRIP, MAPRO and ASTER, Note that these word do not consist of the letter X obviously the code for X is the symbol ‘)’.
From II: The four letters M, I , E and R are present in both the words MIXER and MISER and the four symbol which are common in the codes of both the words are > , * , = and . Thus we can conclude that code for the letter is the symbol ‘)’ .

If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question
Solution:
From both I and II we get that P is (35-25) = 10 years older than his brother,
Who was born in 1964, So, P was born in 1954.
