A. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient

B. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient

C. Either I or II is sufficient

D. Neither I nor II is sufficient

E. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option E

Explanation:

As given in I and II, we have: G = V = K, V + K + A = 32 and A = V + K.

Putting V + K = A in V + K + A = 32, we have: 2A = 32 or A = 16.

Thus, V + K = 16 and V = K. So, V = K = 8. Thus, G = 8.

**Q2. Question:** In a certain code, ’13’ means ‘stop smoking’ and ’59’ means ‘injurious habit’. What do ‘9’ and ‘5’ mean respectively in that code ?

**Statements:**

‘157’ means ‘stop bad habit’.

‘839’ means ‘smoking is injurious’.

A. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient

B. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient

C. Either I or II is sufficient

D. Neither I nor II is sufficient

E. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

’59’ means ‘injurious habit’ and ‘157’ means ‘stop bad habit’ (from I). Thus, the common code number ‘5’ stands for common word ‘habit’. So, ‘9’ represents ‘injurious’. Hence, I is sufficient.

Also, ’59’ means ‘injurious habit’ and ‘839’ means ‘smoking is injurious’. Thus, the common code number ‘9’ stands for common word ‘injurious’. So, ‘5’ represents ‘habit’. Thus, II is also sufficient.,

**Q3. Question:** How much money do Vivek and Suman have together ?

**Statements:**

A. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient

B. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient

C. Either I or II is sufficient

D. Neither I nor II is sufficient

E. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

From I, we have: S = T – 20.

From II, we have: V = T + 30.

Thus, from both I and II, we have: V + S = (T + 30) + (T – 20) = (2 T + 10).

So, to get the required amount, we need to know the amount that Tarun has.

A. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient

B. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient

C. Either I or II is sufficient

D. Neither I nor II is sufficient

E. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

From I, we have: R>Q, R>T, S>R i.e. S>R>Q>T or S>R>T>Q.

From II, S is not the heaviest. So, P is the heaviest. Thus, we have: P > S > R > Q > T or P > S > R > T > Q. Hence, either T or Q is the lightest.

B. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient

C. Either I or II is sufficient

D. Neither I nor II is sufficient

E. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

From I, we have: P > M, P > K, A > P.

Thus, A > P > M > K or A > P > K > M. So, Akash is the heaviest.

From II, we have: P > M, A > M, M > K.

Thus, A > P > M > K or P > A > M > K. So, either Akash or Prabhakar is the heaviest.

C. Either I or II is sufficient

D. Neither I nor II is sufficient

E. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Statement I is merely an interpretation of the information contained in the question.

However, Vinod’s salary can be ascertained from II as follows : Let Vinod’s and Javed’s salaries be 4x and 3x respectively. Then, 3x = 4500 or x = 1500. Therefore Vinod’s salary = 4x = Rs. 6000.
