Input : 25 93 as hill stamp bolt 45 34 63 total 13 alter rise
Step I : alter 25 93 as hill stamp bolt 45 34 63 total rise 13
Step II : alter as 93 hill stamp bolt 45 34 63 total rise 25 13
Step III : alter as bolt 93 hill stamp 45 63 total rise 34 25 13
Step IV : alter as bolt hill 93 stamp 63 total rise 45 34 25 13
Step V : alter as bolt hill rise 93 stamp total 63 45 34 25 13

1) Fifth from the left end 2) Seventh from the left end 3) Sixth from the left end 4) Sixth from the right end 5) Seventh from the right end

9. Which of the following is fifth from the left end of step V in the above arrangement?

2.1; From I.Priya > Pooja and Punam
From  II. Pinki  >  Padma  >  Priya  and  Pinki  is  not  the tallest.
From III.Pooja is not the shortest.
From I and II.
Pinki > Padma > Priya > Pooja, Punam. Since Pinki is not
the tallest, it must be  Pushpa who is the tallest.
Thus, only I and II together are sufficient.
From II and III,
No definite  relationship.
From I and III.We can’t say who is the tallest as nothing is mentioned about Pushpa, Pinki and Padma.

3. 4; Statement  III  has  no  relation  either with  statement  I  or with  II.  In  statement  III, Q  is  not  being  talked  about. Similarly, in statement I and II, R is not being talked about. Hence  all  the  three  statements  even  together  are  not sufficient

4.5; From I.  According to Manish, possible dates are 15, 16,
17, 18.
From II.According to Manish’s sister, possible dates are
17, 18, 19, 20.
From III.  According  to Manish’s  brother,  possible  dates
are 17, 18, 19, 20, 21.
Combining I, II and III,
Possible dates are 17, 18
Thus, we can’t find the exact date.

5. 2; From I.Tanuja didn’t score the highest number of goals.
From II.Tanuja = Mohit = Karuna
From III.Mohit + Rinki + Karuna = 12 goals
Rinki = Mohit + Karuna
Rinki scored 6 goals and Mohit and Karuna together scored
6 goals.
From I and II,
We can’t find how many goals Tanuja scored.
From II and III,
Mohit and Karuna together scored six goals.
Mohit + Karuna = 6
Tanuja = Mohit = Karuna = x
x + x = 6
or x = 3
Tanuja scored three goals.
Thus, II and III together are sufficient.

(6 to 7)
