Answer:

Question 1 Answer (2)

Question 2 Answer (4)

Question 3 Answer (4)

Question 3 Answer (3)

Question 4 Answer (1)

Question 5 Answer (4)

(1) Kunal stays close to school. So, the other three - Rohit, Ashish and John stay far from the school.

(2) Rohit, Kunal and Ashish do not study in class VI. So, John studies in class VI. Rohit and Kurial are not good at all subjects and John is in class VI. So, Ashish is good at all subjects and studies in class V. Clearly, Rohit and Kunal study in class V.

(3) If we consider the given information, we infer that Kunal is good at Hindi while Rohit is not, therefore for Q.1, option number (1) and (4) are ruled out. Also answer has to include Kunal, therefore 2nd option is the right answer which implies that Ashish is good at Hindi which further implies that he is good at all the subjects while John is weak in all the subjects.

(4) There is no information about which person is in which class except John who is in VI class. So now the table can be prepared and all answers can be obtained.
