Directions (11-15): Each of the questions below consists of a question and three statements numbered I, II, III 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?

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 II by itself is sufficient to answer the question, but statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.
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 , M is not common only in that
particular word. 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.
Q14. Who sits immediate left of G, if all persons sit in a row are facing north? 
I. S sits third to the

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.

By combining both the statements together we
can find that S sits immediate left of G.

If statement II by itself is sufficient to answer the question, but statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.
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 statement I alone, Book A was sold on
Wednesday /Thursday/Friday /Saturday.
Using statement II alone, Book A was sold on
