Directions: Study the information and answer the given question:

There are seven people A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. They all were born in different years viz. 1947, 1952, 1960, 1968, 1982, 1990 and 1997 but not necessarily in same order. But the date and month of birth of all these persons are same. The calculation is done with respect to the year 2017 and assuming months and date to be same.

G's age is in multiple of 5. The difference of age between A and D is double the difference of age between B and C. C was born in the even number of year. D is younger than A. G does not the oldest person. The age of F is exactly double the age of one of them. A does not born in 1960.

Refer the above for the Questions 81 to 80
81. Who among the following is the youngest?    




SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:B
Explanation:

Reference:
G's age is in multiple of 5. G does not the oldest person.
---> The age of G must be either 65 or 35 or 20.
Hence, there are 3 possibility cases, as follows:


Year

Age
Case 1 Case 2 Case 3
Person Person Person
1947 70
1952 65 G
1960 57
1968 49
1982 35 G
1990 27
1997 20 G

Reference:
The age of F is exactly double the age of one of them.
---> The age of F must be 70, so that 2*35 = 70, in which 35 is the age of one of the given person.

Given, A does not born in 1960.

1982 35 G
1990 27
1997 20 G

Reference:
The difference of age between A and D is double the difference of age between B and C.
D is younger than A.
C was born in the even number of year.
---> This implies that, the condition is age of {A - D = 2 (C - B)}
---> When we go through the ages, there are only two possibilities which satisfies the above condition:
Possibility 1: Let A’s age = 49, D’s age = 35, C’s age = 27, B’s age = 20
Then A - D = 2 (C - B)
----> 49 - 35 = 2(27 - 20)
----> 14 = 2 (7)
---> 14 = 14
Condition is satisfied in this case.

Possibility 2: Let A’s age = 57, D’s age = 27, C’s age = 35, B’s age = 20
Then A - D = 2 (C - B)
----> 57 - 27 = 2(35 - 20)
----> 30 = 2 (15)
---> 30 = 30
Given Condition is satisfied in this case also.
But, it is given that, A does not born in 1960, so age of A must not be 57. Hence, Possibility 2 is eliminated.

Thus, we can fill the result of Possibility 1 exactly in the case 1 only as follows. Hence case 2 and case 3 are eliminated.

Common Explanation:

Reference:

Eight persons – Nitin, Prakash, Anant, Gopal, Vishal, Manish, Jayant and Depak, were living on different floors of a building. There are eight floors in a building numbered 1 – 8 such that the bottom floor is numbered as 1, and top floor is numbered as 8. These persons earns a different amount – 2 lakhs, 3 lakhs, 4 lakhs, 6 lakhs, 7 lakhs, 8 lakhs, 10 lakhs and 12 lakhs but not necessarily in the same order.

Inference:

We will keep this information in mind while solving the puzzle.

Reference:

Manish lives on an even number floor below 5th floor.

Jayant lives just above Manish and earns in multiple of 4 but not 4 Lakhs.

Only one person lives between Jayant and Depak.

Jayant lives above Depak.

As we have already figured out that amount earned by Jayant is either 8 lakhs or 12 lakhs.

Here, we have two possible scenarios in which we can figure out the amount earned by these persons.

Possibility 1:

Jayant earns 8 lakhs.

If Jayant earns 8 lakhs then,



As none of the persons is earning 5 lakhs so we can say that this is a false possibility.

Possibility 2:

Jayant earns 12 lakhs.

If Jayant earns 12 lakhs then,



Here, the only possible scenario in which amount earned by Gopal can be made equal to 2 lakhs more than the sum of amounts earned by Anant and Prakash is when Anant earns 2 lakhs and then amount earned by Gopal is (4 + 2)+2 = 8 lakhs.



At this point we can say that the amount earned by Manish is 10 lakhs.

Common Explanation:

Reference:

Eight persons – Nitin, Prakash, Anant, Gopal, Vishal, Manish, Jayant and Depak, were living on different floors of a building. There are eight floors in a building numbered 1 – 8 such that the bottom floor is numbered as 1, and top floor is numbered as 8. These persons earns a different amount – 2 lakhs, 3 lakhs, 4 lakhs, 6 lakhs, 7 lakhs, 8 lakhs, 10 lakhs and 12 lakhs but not necessarily in the same order.

Inference:

We will keep this information in mind while solving the puzzle.

Reference:

Manish lives on an even number floor below 5th floor.

Jayant lives just above Manish and earns in multiple of 4 but not 4 Lakhs.

Only one person lives between Jayant and Depak.

Jayant lives above Depak.

Case 2:



Reference:

The sum of the amount earned by Nitin and Prakash is equal to amount earned by Vishal.

Amount earned by Gopal is 2 lakhs more than the sum of the amounts earned by Anant and Prakash.

Inference:

As we have already figured out that amount earned by Jayant is either 8 lakhs or 12 lakhs.

Here, we have two possible scenarios in which we can figure out the amount earned by these persons.

Possibility 1:

Here, the only possible scenario in which amount earned by Gopal can be made equal to 2 lakhs more than the sum of amounts earned by Anant and Prakash is when Anant earns 2 lakhs and then amount earned by Gopal is (4 + 2)+2 = 8 lakhs.



At this point we can say that the amount earned by Manish is 10 lakhs.
