Directions (11-15): Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I, II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

Q11. Who is tallest among five friends A, B, C, D and E?
I. D is taller than C but just shorter than E.

If statement either I or II is sufficient to answer the question.
If both the statements I and II taken together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If both the statements I and II taken together are sufficient to answer the question.
Solution:

Using both statements together, A is the tallest person.
From Statement I- E>D>C
From statement II- A>E>B
From both statements- A>E>D>C/B>C/B

Q12. How is B related to A?

If statement either I or II is sufficient to answer the question.
If both the statements I and II taken together are not sufficient to answer the question.
If both the statements I and II taken together are sufficient to answer the question.
Solution:

If we analyze the code of M in both the statement , we can’t find exactly since in both statement , Only M is not common in those particular words. But according to position of M in 1st statement, ‘Come’ having the 3rd position whose code is 4 and ‘Monkey’ having the 1st position of M, so code is 4.
Similarly in 2nd statement, according to position of M, tells that the code is 2. So, both are either sufficient.

Using statement I alone, the day on 9th December will be Wednesday.

So, there will be two possibilities and the day on 9th December will be either Wednesday or Thursday.
