Rounds 1 to 6:

The points that Amita scored till Round 6 is 8. Among the rounds 1 to 6. he participated only in Round 1 and Round 6. Hence, he must have scored 7 and 1 points in Round 1 and Round 6 in any order.

Since Bala scored 2 points till Round 6, he must have scored 1 point in Round 1 and 1 point in Round 2.

Since Bala scored 1 point in Round 1. Amita could not have scored 1 point in Round 1. Hence. Amita must have scored 7 points in Round 1 and 1 point in Round 6.

Gordon scored 17 points in Rounds 2 to 6. It is given that from Round 1 to Round 6. Gordon did not score consecutively in any two rounds. Since it is not possible to score 17 points in two rounds. Gordon must have scored 17 points in three rounds - Round 2, Round 4 and Round 6.

In these three rounds, he must have scored 7, 7 and 3 points, in any order.

Joshin scored 14 points in Rounds 5 and 6. Hence, he must have scored 7 points in each of these two rounds. Since Joshin scored 7 points in Round 6, Gordon cannot score 7 points in Round 6. Hence, Gordon must have scored 3 points in Round 6 and 7 points in each of Round 2 and Round 4.

Ikea scored 2 points till Round 6. In the first 6 rounds, he played in only Rounds 4. 5 and 6, of which he scored 0 points in Round 6. Hence, he must have scored 1 point each in Round 4 and Round 5.

Hansa scored 1 point in the first 6 rounds. He played in only Rounds 3 to 6. Of these rounds, he did not score any point in Round 6. In Rounds 4 and 5. Ikea scored 1 point. Hence. Hansa could not have scored 1 point in Rounds 4 and 5.

Therefore, Hansa must have scored 1 point in Round 3.

Eric scored 3 points in the first 6 rounds. He could have scored 1 point in each of three rounds OR 3 points in one round. He participated only in Rounds 1 to 5. Of these rounds, Bala scored 1 point each in Round 1 and 2. Hansa scored 1 point in Round 3, while Ikea scored 1 point in Round 4 and Round 5. Hence. Eric could not have scored 1 point each in three rounds. Hence. Eric must have scored 3 points in one round.

Similarly. Fatima cannot score 7. 1. 1, 1 point in four rounds (among the first 6 rounds) and must have scored 7 points and 3 points in two rounds.

Given that Eric and Fatima both scored in one round. In the round that both of them scored. Eric must have scored 3 points, while Fatima must have score 7 points (since both of them cannot score the same number of points in a round).

Among the rounds that both Eric and Fatima played (i.e.. Rounds 1 to 5), the only round in which Fatima could have scored 7 points is Round 3. Hence, in round 3. Fatima must have scored 7 points and Eric must have scored 3 points. Eric should have scored 0 in all the other rounds from rounds 1 to 6.

Chen must have scored 3 points in one of the rounds, while David must have scored 3 points in two rounds each. Irrespective of which round Chen scored 3 points, David must have scored 3 points in Round 4. In the first two rounds, Chen and David must have scored 3 points in any order. Hence, Fatima could have scored 3 points only in Round 5.

Rounds 7 to 10:

In rounds 7-10, Chen must have scored 3 points (since he scored 6 points in total, after Round 10). Since Chen played 3 rounds from 7-10 and he scored in three consecutive rounds among these rounds, he must have scored 1 point each in Round 8, Round 9 and Round 10.

Ikea scored 15 points in Rounds 7 to 10. Since he played only in Rounds 7, 8 and 9. he must have scored 7, 7 and 1 points in these three rounds, in any order. Since Chen scored 1 point each in Rounds 8 and 9. Ikea could have

scored 1 point only in Round 7. In Rounds 8 and 9, he must have scored 7 points each.

Joshin scored 3 points in Rounds 7 to 10. He could not have scored 1 point in each of three rounds (since Ikea and Chen are the only persons who scored in three consecutive rounds and no one else scored in any two consecutive rounds).

Hence, Joshin must have scored 3 points in one round. Since it is given that Joshin scored in Round 7, he must

have scored 3 points in Round 7 and no points in the other rounds.

In Round 7, Ikea scored 1 point and Joshin scored 3 points. The only person who could have scored 7 points in Round 7 is Amita.

Hansa would have scored 3 points in Round 8 (since he scored 0 in Round 7).

Eric scored 7 points in Rounds 7 to 10. Among the rounds that he played (Rounds 9, 10), he must have scored 7 points in Round 10 (since Ikea scored 7 points in Round 9).

David did not score any points in Rounds 7 through 10.

Amita must have scored 3 points in Round 10 (since Amita scored in Round 10) and Bala must have scored 3 points in Round 9.

The table below provides the points scored by all the players in all the rounds. An X' indicates that the player did not participate in that round.

INSTRUCTION

In the table below the check marks indicate all languages spoken by five people: Paula, Quentin, Robert, Sally and Terence. For example, Paula speaks only Chinese and English.

These five people form three teams, Team 1, Team 2 and Team 3. Each team has either 2 or 3 members. A team is said to speak a particular language if at least one of its members speak that language.

The following facts are known.

  1. Each team speaks exactly four languages and has the same number of members.
  2. English and Chinese are spoken by all three teams, Basque and French by exactly two teams and the other languages by exactly one team.
  3. None of the teams include both Quentin and Robert.
  4. Paula and Sally are together in exactly two teams.
  5. Robert is in Team 1 and Quentin is in Team 3.

Question 5:
Who among the following four is not a member of Team 2?
  1. Quentin
  2. Paula
  3. Sally
  4. Terence
Question 6:
Who among the following four people is a part of exactly two teams?
  1. Sally
  2. Robert
  3. Paula
  4. Quentin
Question 7:
Who among the five people is a member of all teams?
  1. Sally
  2. No one
  3. Terence
  4. Paula
Question 8:
Apart from Chinese and English, which languages are spoken by Team 1?
  1. Arabic and Basque
  2. Arabic and French
  3. Basque and Dutch
  4. Basque and French
Correct Option:

From (1) and (5), the persons in Team 1 speak English. Chinese. Arabic and French. (Robert speaks both Arabic and French).

From (1) and (5), the persons in Team 3 speak. English, Chinese and Dutch. (Quentin speaks Dutch and English). Since each person speaks two languages and each team speaks exactly four languages, we need to find one person for Team 3. who speaks one language among English, Chinese and Dutch and a different language apart from these three.

Since, Paula and Sally together speak Basque, Chinese and English and they are together in exactly two teams, they cannot be in Team 1. They must be in Teams 2 and 3.

Hence, from (5) and the above, Paula, Quentin and Sally, (Basque. Chinese. Dutch and English) are in Team 3. Since there are three persons in Team 3. Teams 1 and 2 should also have three persons each. Team 1 speaks, English, Chinese, Arabic and French. Robert (Arabic and French) is one of the team members. Now, two more persons, who speak languages among the above four are to be selected. It is possible only with Paula and Terence.

From (2) Basque and French are spoken by two teams. Hence, Team 2 speaks these two languages. Paula and Sally are there in Team 2 (Basque, Chinese and English). We need to find one more person, who speaks one of these three languages and French. It is possible with only Terence.

A large store has only three departments, Clothing, Produce, and Electronics. The following figure shows the percentages of revenue and cost from the three departments for the years 2016, 2017 and 2018. The dotted lines depict percentage levels.
