SOLUTIONS TO ANALYTICAL REASONING

SOLUTION TO 41: Let the position of the shirts be as follows:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8 (from bottom to top in ascending
order of numbers)
It is given that Wills is 5th from top and Izod is 3rd from bottom, i.e. Wills is at 4 and
Izod is at 3.
Arrow is immediately above Levis. Also there are 3 shirts between Levis and Blackberry.
This situation can be seen in two cases as:
CASE 1: 1
Blackberry
Izod
Wills 5
Levis Arrow 8
CASE 2: Blackberry 2
Wills Izod
Levis Arrow 7
8
CASE 3: Levis
Arrow
Izod
Wills Blackberry

th
If Levis is 3 from top, the situation is of CASE1, then Provogue can be at 1 , 5 or 8th
position from bottom or 1st, 4th or 8th position from top. Hence, (d)
SOLUTION TO 42: If Levis is first from bottom , then CASE 3(above) is the situation.
CASE 3: Levis
Arrow Izod
Wills Blackberry
6
7
8
Shirts starting with same alphabets are not kept together, so Provogue and Peter
England can be at 6 or 8 in any order. This means, Lee is at 7. Hence (b)
SOLUTION TO 43: From statements (a) and (b) we dont get unique arrangement. But if
Lee shirt is placed exactly below two shirts, then Case 3 is the situation. Also, since
Provogue is immediately above it, we get unique arrangement as followsLevis Arrow Izad
Wills Blackberry
Lee
Provogue
Peter England
Hence, (c)
SOLUTION TO 44: Parul is next to Sonu and Tonu is not next to Sonu. Radha is on
extreme left and next to Kiran who is not next to Tonu. Thus arrangement is:
Hence, (a)
SOLUTION TO 45: If the group of size 4 consists of Prashant, Sohail, Dhiraj and Viswjit
then two more groups of size 3 and size 2 can be formed. From option (a), if Ashwini
and Nitin form group of size 2, then size 3 will consist of Sonu with Dilip which is not
possible. Option(b) is not possible as size 3 will consist of Dilip and Ashwini which is
not possible. Option(c) is possible. Hence, (c)

of any of the contents of this work is a punishable offence under the laws of India.

CP/16/MT01
SOLUTION TO 46: Option (d) is not possible as if Prashant , Sohail, Nitin and Viswjit
are in team of size 4, then size 3 would consist of Dilip and Ashwini which is not
possible. Hence, (d)
SOLUTION TO 47: If Abhinav and Sonu form a group of size 2, then only one of Dilip or
Aswini must be there in group of size 4. The following cases are possibleCase 1: If Prashant and Sohail are not in group size 4
In this case, Dhiraj-Nitin and Viswjit will be in group size 4. The fourth member is one
among Dilip and Ashwini. Thus, two such groups are possible.
Case 2: If Prashant and Sohail are in group size 4
In this case, the third member can be selected in two ways (i.e. between Ashwini and
Dilip) and fourth member can be selected in three ways (i.e. among Viswjit, Nitin and
Dhiraj). So, number of ways = 23 = 6 ways.
Thus, total ways of selection = 2 + 6 = 8 ways. Hence, (b)
SOLUTION TO 48: If Abhinav and Sonu are selected in team of size 4 while Prashant
and Sohail are selected in team of size 3, then the possible members of team of size 2
can be selected in these waysCase 1: if Dilip or Ashwini is selected.
The other player can be one of Viswjit, Nitin and Dhiraj i.e. ways of selection is 23 = 6 .
Case 2: If Dilip or Ashwini both are not selected.
The two players will be two of Viswjit, Nitin and Dhiraj. 2 out of 3 can be selected in
C(3,2)= 3 ways.
Total ways of selection = 6 +3 = 9 ways. Hence, (a)

SOLUTION TO 49: We need to keep in mind that Ashwini and Dilip cannot be in same
group and Sonu and Dilip cannot be in same group. (i) is not feasible as then Ashwini,
Sonu and Dilip will be in group of size 4. (ii) is not feasible as Ashwini and Dilip would
be in same group then. (iii) is not possible as Ashwini and Dilip will be together in same
group. (iv) is not feasible as Sonu and Dilip would be in same group. Hence, (d)
SOLUTION TO 50: Two M.As are selected, so at least one M.Stat should be selected.
So, options (d) is eliminated. Option(a) is not possible as two M.B.As cannot be
selected. Option (b) is eliminated as if one M.Stat is selected then M.Tech is not
selected. Hence, (c)
SOLUTION TO 51: Option (a) and (b) are eliminated directly. Option (c) is false as when
exactly two M.Stats are selected, two M.A.s can be selected to form a group. Option (d)
is correct i.e. if two M.C.As are selected then one M.A. and one M.B.A can be selected to
form a group. Hence, (d)
SOLUTION TO 52: If two M.Stats are selected, then two exactly M.As are definitely
selected. Thus, three M.As cannot be selected. Hence, (c)
SOLUTION TO 53: If none of two M.C.As are selected, the groups so formed can be

i.
2 M.Stats, 1 M.B.A, 2 M.A.s
ii.
3 M.A.s, 1 M.B.A, 1 M.Tech
Thus, options (a), (b) and (c) may be true. Option (d) is correct. Hence, (d)

SOLUTION TO 54: Some of the groups that can be formed arei.

2 M.Stats, 1 M.B.A, 2 M.A.s
ii.
3 M.A.s, 1 M.B.A, 1 M.Tech
iii.
1 M.Stats, 2 M.A.s, 2 M.C.As
From the above three groups, its clear that options (b), (c) and (d) are not definitely
true. Thus, option (a) is definitely true. Hence, (a)
SOLUTION from 55 to 59: From (i) and (ii), SKs car is at 6, SS car is at 1 and ABs car
is at 7. PCs car is behind SKs car, so it could be at 4 or 9 or 5. Now, from (iv) and (v)
we get, PC s car has to be at 4, SDs car is at 5 and IKs car is at 3. This also satisfies
condition (iii). From (v), AKs car is at 9. From (vi), KKs car is at 8 (perfect cube) and
EHs car is at 2 (prime number). Thus, the parking table is as follows 1- SS
7-AB
3-IK
6- SK
2-EH
8-KK
4-PC
9-AK
5-SD
Now all questions can be answered.
Q55: SDs car is parked at 5.
Q56: AKs car is immediately to the left of SDs car.
Q57: Cars at positions 2, 6, 8 comprise of Group C. It belongs to EH, SK and KK.
Q58: Prime number are 2 , 3, 5 and 7. The respective cars belongs to EH, IK, SD and
AB.
Q59: There are six cars (belonging to SK, EH, KK, SS, AB and IK) parked ahead of AKs
car.
Hence,
55. (d)
56.(b)
57.(b)
58.(a)
59.(d)
SOLUTION TO 60: Lets number positions as 1 to 5 from left to right. As P is second
from rightmost person, so P is at 3. M sits with P, so M could be at 2 or 4. But as N and
R are left of M, so M is at 4 while N and R are at 1 and 2 in some order. Since, there are
two persons between N and B, so N is at 2 and B at 5. So, N is at 1. This means, M is
sitting between P and B. Hence, (a)
