101. Aman is standing in a line of boys at his annual sports meet and is 31st from the front. The coach asks everyone to turn around by 180Âº. Now Aman is 12th from the front. How many boys are there in the line?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:42
Explanation:
Aman's Position = 31st from the front.
When the coach asks them to turn by 180Âº, Aman becomes 31 st from the bottom.
In addition, he is 12th from the front now.
So, number of boys = 31 + 12 = 43 (Adding Aman's position from front & bottom)
However, his position has been counted twice so we subtract one.
Hence, there are 42 boys in the row.

Explanation:
Given:
Only two persons are shorter than S. T is shorter than S but taller than R.
S > T > R
So in the first and second place it may either P or Q. So the order will be like as follows,
P > Q > S > T > R
or
Q > P > S > T > R
It is given that second tallest is 158 cm. So Q is either 158 cm high or more than 158 cm.
Hence, the possible height of Q is 158 cm.
Only two persons are shorter than S. T is shorter than S but taller than R.
S > T > R
So in the first and second place it may either P or Q. So the order will be like as follows,
P > Q > S > T > R
or
Q > P > S > T > R
It is given that second tallest is 158 cm. So Q is either 158 cm high or more than 158 cm.

SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:Thursday, Friday
Explanation:
Common Explanation:
People: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon.
Gamma is as many days old to Alpha as Beta is younger to Epsilon.
Gamma - Alpha = Epsilon - Beta
Gamma's Birthday is on Wednesday
Wednesday - Gamma
Delta is two days older than Epsilon
So the order is like Delta - Epsilon - Beta; Gamma Alpha
From the statement, let us assume the difference between Gamma and Alpha is 1 day.
Therefore, the difference between Beta and Epsilon is 1.
The final arrangement can be:
People: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon.
Gamma is as many days old to Alpha as Beta is younger to Epsilon.
Gamma - Alpha = Epsilon - Beta
Gamma's Birthday is on Wednesday
Wednesday - Gamma
Delta is two days older than Epsilon
So the order is like Delta - Epsilon - Beta; Gamma Alpha
From the statement, let us assume the difference between Gamma and Alpha is 1 day.
Therefore, the difference between Beta and Epsilon is 1.
The final arrangement can be:
Day |
People |
Wednesday |
Gamma |
Thursday |
