Explanation [1-5]-

Explanation -
One person is sitting between Pihu and Quba.
Explanation -
Both Sunny and Vicky
Explanation -
immediate left
Explanation -
Sunny is sitting immediate right of Wadra and in the same case, Riah is sitting immediate right of Pihu. So, following the same pattern, Vicky will be related to Uber.
The seating arrangement, (all facing east) , is as-
Direction(1-5): Study the following information carefully to answer the given questions.
Six friends I, J, K, L, M and N made a row with respect to their heights in ascending order from left to right. The heaviest one is of 90 kg.
● N is heavier than J and K, who are neither tallest nor shortest.
● The tallest one weights immediate less than J and K weights less than the tallest one.
● Only M is heavier than I.
● N stands in the row just before K.
● Two people are standing between J and N, I is not one of them.
● The lightest weight of the person is 59 kg, who is the fourth tallest person too.

1. If considering weights J + M = 160 kg, what is the probable weight of L?
A. 78 B. 40 C. 63 D. 58 E. 45

2. How many people are standing between I and M?
A. one B. two C. three D. more than three E. None

3. If these people are made to stand in alphabetical order and compared with the previous row, How many of them have changed their position?
A. one B. two C. three D. four E. None of these

4. Find the false option with respect to N.
A. N is shorter than M B. N stand third from the left of J C. I weights more than N D. N may weight 80 kg E. None of these

5. Who is the tallest among them all?
A. N B. L C. I D. J E. None of these

Explanation [1-5]-
Given,
Six people: I, J, K, L, M and N.
Heaviest one weights 90 kg.
N is heavier than J and K, who are neither tallest nor shortest.
J, K < N
The tallest one weights immediate less than J and K weights less than the tallest one.
K < Tallest < J < N
Only M is heavier than I.
I < M
Arranging them according to their weights,
 K Tallest(L) J N I M

So, the tallest one will be L.
Now arranging them with respect to heights in ascending order as given in the information.

N stands in row just before K, N is shorter than K.
N K
Two people are standing between J and N, I is not one of them.
(there will be two conditions can form) J _ _ N M K ----Ã condition 1
N K _ J -> condition 2
Condition one will not follow because according to that K will become the tallest.
In condition 2, I and L cannot be in between J and N, So
N K M J
The lightest weight of the person is 59, who is the fourth tallest person too.
K is the lightest among them and K is 4th from right so, I will be the shortest.
Summing them all we get,
 I N K M J L

There are two people standing between I and M.
Direction(1-2): In the following questions, the symbols , @, #, & and % are used with the following meaning as illustrated below:
• ‘A @ B’ means ‘A’ is greater than B’.
• ‘A % B’ means ‘A is equal to B’.
• ‘A # B’ means ‘A is either equal to or smaller than B’.
• ‘A & B’ means ‘A is either equal to or greater than B’.
• ‘A * B’ means ‘A is smaller than B’.

Now in each of the following questions. Assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the two conclusions I and II given below them is/ are definitely true?
1. Statements: S% A, A & D, D * J Conclusions: I. D # S II. A * J
A. Only conclusion I is true. B. Only conclusion II is true. C. Either conclusion I or II is true. D. Neither conclusion I nor II is true. E. If both Conclusion I and II are true.

2. Statements: Q @ F, F % C, N * C Conclusions: I. Q @ C II. F * N
A. Only conclusion I is true. B. Only conclusion II is true. C. Either conclusion I or II is true. D. Neither conclusion I nor II is true. E. If both Conclusion I and II are true.

3. Vincent has a paper route. Each morning, he delivers 37 newspapers to customers in his neighborhood. It takes Vincent 50 minutes to deliver all the papers. If Vincent is sick or has other plans, his friend Thomas, who lives on the same street, will sometimes deliver the papers for him.
A. Vincent and Thomas live in the same neighborhood. B. It takes Thomas more than 50 minutes to deliver the papers. C. It is dark outside when Vincent begins his deliveries D. Thomas would like to have his own paper route. E. None of these

4. If A + B means A is the brother of B; A - B means A is the sister of B and A x B means A is the father of B. Which of the following means that C is the son of M?
A. M - N x C + F B. F - C + N x M C. N + M - F x C D. M x N - C + F E. None of these

5. Introducing a boy, a girl said, "He is the son of the daughter of the father of my uncle." How is the boy related to the girl?
A. Brother B. Nephew C. Uncle D. Son-in-law E. None of these

Explanation -
A @ B = A > B
A % B = A = B
A # B = A ≤ B
A & B = A ≥ B
A * B = A < B
From the question,
S% A = S = A
A & D = A ≥ D
D * J = D < J
Therefore, S = A ≥ D < J
Conclusions:
I. D # S = D ≤ S (True)
II. A * J = A < J (Not true)
Explanation -
A @ B = A > B
A % B = A = B
A # B = A ≤ B
A & B = A ≥ B
A * B = A < B
From the question,
Q @ F = Q > F
F % C = F = C
N * C = N < C
Therefore, Q > F = C > N
Conclusions:
I. Q @ C = Q > C (True)
II. F * N = F < N (Not true)
Explanation -
The fact that Vincent and Thomas live on the same street indicates that they live in the same neighborhood. There is no support for any of the other choices.
Explanation -
M x N → M is the father of N
N - C → N is the sister of C
and C + F → C is the brother of F.
Hence, M is the father of C or C is the son of M.
