Each of the six buildings - E, F, G, H, I and J - has different number of floors. Only three buildings have more number of floors than J. G has more number of floors than I but less than E. I has more number of floors than J. F does not have the least number of floors. The building having least number of floors has 5 floors. The building having third highest number of floors has 26 floors. F has 14 floors less than the number of floors in I.

Refer the above for the Questions 73 to 72
73. How many floors does building J possibly have?

Correct Ans:22
Explanation:
References:
Only three buildings have more number of floors than J.
G has more number of floors than I but less than E.
I has more number of floors than J.

E > G > I > J

References:
F does not have the least number of floors.
So, remaining is H which has the least number of floors.

E > G > I > J > F > H

References:
The building having least number of floors has 5 floors.
The building having third highest number of floors has 26 floors.
F has 14 floors less than the number of floors in I.
Therefore, F = 26 - 14 = 12 floors.

J must have more than 12 but less than 26 floors. So, by the options, 22 is the possible answer.

Correct Ans:G
Explanation:
References:
Only three buildings have more number of floors than J.
G has more number of floors than I but less than E.
I has more number of floors than J.

E > G > I > J

E > G > I > J > F > H

References:
The building having least number of floors has 5 floors.
The building having third highest number of floors has 26 floors.
F has 14 floors less than the number of floors in I.
Therefore, F = 26 - 14 = 12 floors.

75. If the number of floors in building G is less than 38 and is an odd number which is divisible by 3 but not 7, how many floors does G have?

Correct Ans:27
Explanation:
References:
Only three buildings have more number of floors than J.
G has more number of floors than I but less than E.
I has more number of floors than J.

E > G > I > J

Directions: Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given beside.
A certain number of persons were sitting in a row facing north such that number of persons on the right of Anu was same as the number of persons on the left of Devi. Devi sits on the left of Anu. Varoni sits exactly in the middle of Anu and Devi, and number of persons between Varoni and Anu were twice the number of persons on the right of Anu, who was 58th from the left end.

Refer the above for the Questions 78 to 77
78. What is the position of Varoni from the right end of the row?

Correct Ans:35th
Explanation:
References:
The number of persons on the right of Anu was same as the number of persons on the left of Devi.
Devi sits on the left of Anu.
Varoni sits exactly in the middle of Anu and Devi.

Let the number of persons on the right of Anu and left of the Devi be 'X' persons and then number of persons between Anu and Varonie and Varonie and Devi be 'Y' persons.

References:
Varoni and Anu were twice the number of persons on the right of Anu, who was 58th from the left end.

Position of Anu from left end = 58
Number of persons between Varonie and Anu were twice the number of persons on the right of Anu, Y = 2X.

Therefore, Number of persons on the left of Anu = X + Devi + 2X + Varonie + 2X
57 = X + 1 + 2X + 1 + 2X
57 = 5X + 2
55 = 5X
X = 11 persons

Position of Varonie from right end = 11 + 1 + 22 + 1 = 35th position.

79. How many person(s) were there in the row?

Correct Ans:69
Explanation:
References:
The number of persons on the right of Anu was same as the number of persons on the left of Devi.
Devi sits on the left of Anu.
Varoni sits exactly in the middle of Anu and Devi.

Let the number of persons on the right of Anu and left of the Devi be 'X' persons and then number of persons between Anu and Varonie and Varonie and Devi be 'Y' persons.

References:
Varoni and Anu were twice the number of persons on the right of Anu, who was 58th from the left end.

Position of Anu from left end = 58
Number of persons between Varonie and Anu were twice the number of persons on the right of Anu, Y = 2X.

Therefore, Number of persons on the left of Anu = X + Devi + 2X + Varonie + 2X
57 = X + 1 + 2X + 1 + 2X
57 = 5X + 2
55 = 5X
X = 11 persons

Hence, number of persons in the row = 11 + 1 + 22 + 1 + 22 + 1 + 11 = 69 persons.

80. Which of the following statement is false with respect to the given information?

Correct Ans:C scored 320 marks

Reference:
D scored more than B but less than E. B scored 320 marks.
E > D > B(320)

Reference:
C scored more than only A.
E > D > B(320) > C > A

Also given, the maximum mark is 390 and minimum mark is 320.
E(390) > D > B(320) > C > A(320)

Here, C didn't score 320 marks. So option B is false statement.
