Answer & Explanation


  1. 1
  2. 3
  3. 2
  4. 3
  5. 5


  1. 1;

From I, U < S < V < T

Because it is given, S is only faster than U. Thus, S is second slowest.


  1. 5


  1. 4;

From I,

‘He knows about you’ —- ‘ 3 12 7 4’ … (i)

‘He knows everything’ —- 7 6 3 … (ii)

From (i) and (ii)

‘He knows’ —- either 7, 3 or 3, 7

We can’t find the code of ‘about’


From II,

‘It is about you’ —- 4 5 8 12


Hence, both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.


  1. 3;

Except triangle all are 3 dimensional.
