Question 3 Answer (4)

Question 4 Answer (4)

Question 5 Answer (3)

Clearly Farooq is heavier than Bubblo and Chitranjan but shorter than Aurbindo

Explanation:

In terms of height, we have

B<F,C<F,C<D,E<D,F<E,A<E,F <A.

So, C < F < E < D, B < F, F < A < E

Thus, the sequence becomes

B,C<C<F<A<E<D or B,C<F<A<E<D

In terms of weight, we have

 A< B, A < C, B < D, D < F.

So, A < B < D < F, A < C.

Thus the sequence becomes A<C<B<D<F or A<B<C<D<F or A<B<D<C<F.

Q1. Explanation: Clearly, Dwarka is the tallest

Q2. Explanation: The descending order of height is

D>E>A>F>B>C or D>E>A>F>C>B.

Clearly, A is third from the top.

Q3. Explanation: Clearly, Farooq, Bubblo and Chitranjan are shorter than Aurbindo.

Q4. Explanation: Data is inadequate as no clue regarding Enjalina's weight is given

Q5. Explanation: Clearly Farooq is heavier than Bubblo and Chitranjan but shorter than Aurbindo
