In the table below is the listing of players, seeded from highest (#1) to lowest (#32), who
are due to play in an Association of Tennis Players (ATP) tournament for women. This
tournament has four knockout rounds before the final, i.e., first round, second round,
quarterfinals, and semi-finals. In the first round, the highest seeded player plays the
lowest seeded player (seed # 32) which is designated match No. 1 of first round; the 2nd
seeded player plays the 31st seeded player which is designated match No. 2 of the first
round, and so on. Thus, for instance, match No. 16 of first round is to be played between
16th seeded player and the 17th seeded player. In the second round, the winner of match
No. 1 of first round plays the winner of match No. 16 of first round and is designated
match No. 1 of second round. Similarly, the winner of match No. 2 of first round plays
the winner of match No. 15 of first round, and is designated match No. 2 of second
round. Thus, for instance, match No. 8 of the second round is to be played between the
winner of match No. 8 of first round and the winner of match No. 9 of first round. The
same pattern is followed for later rounds as well.
1. If there are no upsets (a lower seeded player beating a higher seeded player) in the first
round, and only match Nos. 6, 7, and 8 of the second round result in upsets, then who
would meet Lindsay Davenport in quarter finals, in case Davenport reaches quarter
2. If Elena Dementieva and Serena Williams lose in the second round, while Justine
Henin and Nadia Petrova make it to the semi-finals, then who would play Maria
Sharapova in the quarterfinals, in the event Sharapova reaches quarterfinals?
1. Dinara Safina
3. If, in the first round, all even numbered matches (and none of the odd numbered ones)
result in upsets, and there are no upsets in the second round, then who could be the lowest
seeded player facing Maria Sharapova in semi-finals?
1. Anastasia Myskina 2. Flavia Pennetta
4. If the top eight seeds make it to the quarterfinals, then who, amongst the players listed
below, would definitely not play against Maria Sharapova in the final, in case Sharapova
reaches the final?
1. Amelie Mauresmo 2. Elena Dementieva 3. Kim Clijsters 4. Lindsay Davenport
Two traders, Chetan and Michael, were involved in the buying and selling of MCS shares
over five trading days. At the beginning of the first day, the MCS share was priced at Rs
100, while at the end of the fifth day it was priced at Rs 110. At the end of each day, the
MCS share price either went up by Rs 10, or else, it came down by Rs 10. Both Chetan
and Michael took buying and selling decisions at the end of each trading day. The
beginning price of MCS share on a given day was the same as the ending price of the
previous day. Chetan and Michael started with the same number of shares and amount of
cash, and had enough of both. Below are some additional facts about how Chetan and
Michael traded over the five trading days.
Each day if the price went up, Chetan sold 10 shares of MCS at the closing price.
On the other hand, each day if the price went down, he bought 10 shares at the closing
1. If Chetan sold 10 shares of MCS on three consecutive days, while Michael sold 10 shares only once during the five days, what was the price of MCS at the end of day 3? (1)Rs 90
