5. Which of the following combination is not true?

Answers and Explanations
1. Answer - Option D
Explanation [1-5]-
Final Arrangement:
Days Person
Sunday B
Monday E
Tuesday C
Wednesday XXXX
Thursday D
Friday F
Saturday A

• C has weekend on two days after B.

• Two persons has weekend between E and F.

• F has weekend on after C.

• E doesn’t have weekend before B.

• D has weekend on after Wednesday.

• Wednesday is not the weekend for C.

• Number of person has weekend on before B is as same as after A.

• From these above statements B should have weekend on either Sunday or Monday. If B has weekend on Monday then it won’t satisfy the second statement. So B should have weekend on Sunday. Then C has weekend on Tuesday. E has weekend on either Monday or Wednesday because F has weekend on after C. If E has weekend on Wednesday then F should has weekend on Saturday. In this scenario we cannot fix A. So E should not have weekend on Wednesday. Hence E has weekend on Tuesday. Two possible cases, case 1 and case 2. But in case 1 doesn’t satisfy second statement so this case is eliminated and case 2 will be the final arrangement.

Days Case 1 Person Case 2 Person
Sunday B B
Monday E E
Tuesday C C
Wednesday XXXX XXXX
Thursday F D
Friday D F
Saturday A A

Directions(4-5): Study the following information to answer the given questions
There are two rows given. To find out the resultant of a particular row we need to follow the following steps: –
Step 1: If an even number is followed by an odd number (prime number) then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.
Step 2: If an odd number is followed by a perfect cube then the resultant will be the difference between the cube number and the odd number.
Step 3: If an odd number is followed by another odd number (but not a perfect square) then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.
Step 4: If an even number is followed by an odd (not a prime number) number then the resultant will be the difference between the odd number and the even number.
Step 5: If an odd number is followed by an even number (not a cube number) then the resultant will be multiplying the numbers.
4. If X is double the value of resultant of the first row then what will be the resultant of the second row?
 4 7 4 6 7 X

A. 484 B. 2144 C. 1444 D. 1144 E. None of these

5. Which of the following is the resultant of second row?
 3 7 35 24 31 64

A. 81 B. 59 C. 9 D. 82 E. None of these

Answers and Explanations

L and J are not immediate neighbours.
S doesn’t like Sachin.
J doesn’t faces opposite to the centre.

2. Answer - Option A
3. Answer - Option E
4. Answer - Option D
Explanation -
 4 7 4 6 7 X

An even number is followed by an odd number (prime number) 4 + 7 = 11
The row is 11 4, an odd number is followed by an even number (not a cube number) 11 × 4 = 44(resultant of first row)
X is double the value of resultant of the first row, So X is 88.
 6 7 88

An even number is followed by an odd number (but not a perfect square) 6 + 7 = 13
The row is 13 88, an odd number is followed by an even number, 13 × 88 = 1144
5. Answer - Option C
Explanation -
 24 31 64

An even number is followed by an odd 33 + 21 = 55
The row is 55 64 , an odd number is followed by a perfect cube 64 - 55 = 9
