6. In which year was
Ratul born?

Statements:
I. Ratul at present is 25 years younger to his mother.
II. Ratul’s brother, who was born in 1964, is 35 years
younger to his mother.

Solutions -From both I and II, we find that
Ratul is (35-25) = 10 years
older than his brother, who was
born in 1964. So, Ratul was
born in 1954.
7. How many children
does M have?
Statements:
I. H is the only daughter of X who is wife of M.
II. K and J are brothers of M.

Solutions – From I, we conclude that H is the only daughter of M. But this
does not indicate that M has no
son. The information given in II
is immaterial.
8. The last Sunday of
March, 2006 fell on which date?
Statements:
I. The first Sunday of that month fell on 5th.
II. The last day of that month was Friday.

Solutions – From I, we conclude that 5th,
12th, 19th and 26th of March,
2006 were Sundays. So, the last
Sunday fell on 26th. From II, we
conclude that 31st March, 2006
was Friday. Thus, 26th March,
2006 was the last Sunday of the
month.
9. Question: What is
the code for ‘sky’ in the code language?
Statements:
I. In the code language, ‘sky is clear’ is written as ‘de ra
fa’.
II. In the same code language, ‘make it clear’ is written as

Solutions – The only word common to I and
II is ‘clear’ and as such, only the
code for ‘clear’ can be ascertained
from the given information.
10. Question: How
many children are there between P and Q in a row of children?
Statements:
I. P is fifteenth from the left in the row.
II. Q is exactly in the middle and there are ten children
towards his right.

Solutions – From II, Q being in the middle,
there are 10 children to his right
as well as to his left. So, Q is 11th from the left. From I, P is
15th from the left. Thus, from
both I and II, we conclude that
there are 3 children between P
and Q.
