**Directions (6-10): Study the following information carefully to answer the given questions.**

M, N, O, P, Q, R and S are seven different friends who are going to buy fruits on different days of week. They buy different fruits on different days of a week starting from Monday to Sunday (of the same week) not necessarily in same order. They buy fruits of different types. The number of fruits are bought by the Seven friends in seven different days are 13, 21, 16, 7, 14, 10 and 28 (not necessarily in the same order).

i. R buys fruits on one of the days after the friend who buy 7 fruits. M buys fruits on one of the days after Friday. On Wednesday, the numbers of fruits bought are 13.

ii. The difference between the number of fruits bought on Monday and Friday is the multiple of the number 7. There are two friends who buy fruits between the R and the Friend the one who buys 7 Fruits.

iii. N buys fruits on one of the days immediately before the Friend who buys 10 Fruits. There are two friends who buy fruits between N and S.

iv. There are three friends who buy fruits between the R and P. O does not buy the least number of fruits. The sum of fruits which are bought on Wednesday and Saturday is more than ten and the sum equals to one more than the number of fruits which are bought on Friday.

v. The difference between the number of fruits which are bought by N and S is less than five. The friend who buys 10 fruits does not buy on Friday.

vi. The friend who buys more than 13 fruits (not an even number) is immediately after the one who buys 13 Fruits. R buys more number of fruits than P.

**Q6.Which of the following number of Fruits are bought by M and N together?**

20

26

21

10

13

Solution:

It is given that the number of fruits are bought on Wednesday is 13.The number of fruits which are bought on Thursday is more than 13 and an odd number so it is 21.M buys fruits either on Saturday or Sunday.so there can be two possibilities (1) or(2).

It is given that The difference of the fruits which are bought on Monday and Friday is a multiple of 7 so the number of fruits can be 7,14 or 28.It is also given that the sum of fruits which are bought on Wednesday and Saturday is one more than the number of fruits which are bought on Friday. So the sum can be 8, 15 or 29. The sum of number of fruits which are bought on Wednesday and Saturday can be only 29 so The number of fruits which are bought on Saturday is 16.Hence the number of fruits which are bought on Friday is 28 and which are bought on Monday is 7 or 14.

It is given that N buys fruits on the day just above the day on which 10 fruits are bought.so N buys fruits on Monday in (1) case .It is given that There are two persons who bought fruits between N and S and the difference between the fruits bought by N and S is less than five. In (1) case, it can’t be possible so (1) possibility will be cancelled out.

In (2) case, N buys fruits on Saturday and the number of fruits which are bought on Sunday is 10.R cannot buy fruits on Saturday as there are three persons who bought fruits between R and P. It is given that There are two persons who buy fruits between R and the person who buys 7 fruits.so 14 fruits are bought on Monday and 7 fruits are bought on Tuesday. R buys fruits on Friday. O does not buy 7 fruits so O buys fruits on Thursday.

Nine people Priya, Queen, Ria, Seema, Tisha, Uma, Veena, Vani, and Babita live on different floors of a 9-floors building. Ground floor is numbered 1, first floor is numbered 2 and so on until the topmost floor is numbered 9. Each one is playing different games i.e. Cricket, Disc Throw, Polo, Kabaddi, Golf, Hockey, Bowling, Badminton, Football but not necessarily in the same order.

Veena is not playing Kabaddi. Uma lives immediately below the one who is playing Disc Throw. Only one person lives between Priya and the one who is playing Hockey. Tisha lives immediately above Ria. Only two people live between Queen and the one who is playing Golf. Vani is playing Badminton and lives on floor no. 8. The one who is playing cricket does not live immediately above or immediately below Queen. The one, who is playing Disc Throw, lives on an even numbered floor. The one, who is playing Golf lives below the floor on which Queen lives. Seema does not live immediately above or immediately below Priya. Only five people live above the floors on which Priya lives. Babita is playing Football and lives immediately above Vani. Only three people live between the ones who are playing Hockey and Polo. Tisha is not playing Polo.

The one, who lives immediately below Veena, is playing Disc Throw.

Veena lives on floor no. 7.

Veena lives immediately below Tisha.

Veena lives on the lowermost floor.

None of these

Solution:

From the conditions, Vani is playing Badminton and lives on floor number 8. Only five people live above the floors on which Priya lives. Only one person lives between Priya and the one who is playing Hockey, it means the one who is playing Hockey lives either 2nd floor or 6th floor. Only three people live between the ones who are playing Hockey and Polo. Uma lives immediately below the one who is playing Disc Throw. The one, who is playing Disc Throw lives on an even numbered floor, so only one place is left for who is playing Disc Throw now it is clear that Priya is playing Disc Throw. Babita is playing Football and lives immediately above Vani now it is clear that Babita lives on topmost floor.

Only two people live between Queen and the one who is playing Golf. The one, who is playing Golf lives below the floor on which Queen lives. So there is only one possibility that Queen will live on 6th floor.

Tisha lives immediately above Ria. Tisha is not playing Polo, From this condition case-2 will be eliminate. Because in case-2 there is no places for Tisha and Ria. Only case-1 will be continued with the remaining conditions.

With the rest conditions, the one who is playing Cricket does not live immediately above or immediately below Queen it means Ria is playing Cricket. Seema does not live immediately above or immediately below Priya so Seema will live on 7th floor. Veena is not playing Kabaddi so Seema will play Kabaddi. It will be fixed that Veena lives on 5th floor and is playing Bowling. We will get final answer.

**Q12. Who amongst the following lives on floor no. 3?**
