(e) None of these

Answers:

1 (d)     2 (1)      3 (d)     4 (e)     5 (d)
6 (a)     7 (d)     8 (a)     9 (b)    10 (c).


Explanations:

1. I alone is not sufficient because it lacks information regarding K. II alone is not sufficient because it does not give information about the number of sons (of K).
From I and II: we get that M and T are sons of K. Thus, K has either two or more than two sons. Since our answer is not clear, both I and II even together are not sufficient.

2. From I:


Hence, It was prakash who reached the office first.
From II: Either Mohan or Prakash reached the office first.

3.
I alone is not sufficient because it lacks information regarding P. II alone is not sufficient because it lacks information regarding M.
Now, from I and II, we get



Still, we do not have clear picture. We have no information regarding the gender of M. Hence, both the statements I and II even together are not sufficient.

4. I lacks information regarding N and Q. Hence, I alone is not sufficient. II lacks information regarding M. Hence, II alone is not sufficient. Now, from I and II, we get that T is the youngest.

5. I alone is not sufficient because it is not certain that the codes of the words are in the same order as the words are in the sentence. Similarly, II alone is not sufficient. Now, from I and II: in the code part there must be two codes common in both I and II. But we get only one code ‘na’ common in both. Thus, the given question is not rational.

6. Here we have
K < T …………… (i)
T ≥ B …………… (ii)
B ≤ F ……………(iii)
From (ii) and (iii), we can’t relate F with T. Hence, conclusions I and do not follow. Similarly, from (i) and (ii), we do not get any specific conclusion regarding B and K. Hence, conclusion II does not follow.

7. Here we have
R ≤ D …………… (i)
D > W ………….. (ii)
B ≥ W ……………(iii)
From (i) and (ii), we do not get any specific conclusion regarding R and W. Hence, neither conclusion I (W < R) nor conclusion III (W ≥ R) follows.
But these two conclusions make a complementary pair. Hence, either conclusion I or conclusion III follows (ii) and (iii) , we cannot get any specific conclusion regarding B and D. Hence, conclusion II (B > D) does not follow.

8. Here we have
Z < F ………. (i)
R ≤ F ………(ii)
D > R ……….(iii)
From (i) and (ii), we cannot relate Z with R From (ii) and (iii), we cannot related F with D. Hence, neither conclusion I (Z < R) nor conclusion II
(F < D ) follows. On the basis of the given information, we cannot get any specific conclusion regarding D and Z. Hence, conclusion III (D > Z ) does not follows.

9. Here we have
M > R ………(i)
R = D ………(ii)
D ≤ N ……….(iii)
From (i) and (ii), we get
M > R = D …….. (iv)
From (ii) and (iii), we get
N ≥ D = R …… (v)
Form (iv) and (v), we do not get any specific relation between M and N. Hence conclusion I ( N > N ) does not follow.
Form (v), we get N ≥ R ( conclusion II ). Hence, conclusion II follows.

10. Here we have
H ≥ V ………. (i)
V = M ……… (ii)
K > M ………(iii)
From (i) and (ii), we get H ≥ V = M ………(iv)
From (ii) and (iii) , we get
K > M = V ……….(v)
Now from (v) we get K < V ( conclusion I). Hence , conclusion I follows. Again from (iv) , we get M ≤ H ( conclusion II) . hence conclusion II follows. But from (iv) and (v), we cannot get any specific relationship between h and K . hence conclusion III (H > K ) does not follow.
