__Solutions__

*Q1. Correct Answer is: b)*

*Priya’s rank from bottom = (35 – 7) + 1 = 28 + 1 = 29*

*Divya’s rank from bottom = (35 – 12) + 1 = 23 + 1 = 24*

*Hence, Priya and Divya’s ranks are 29 and 24 ^{th} *

*Q2. Correct Answer is: d)*

*The middle position out of 31 boys is 16*

*Hence, Prabu’s original position from left end is, 16 – 3 = 13*

*Hence, the original position of Prabu from right end is,*

*= (31 – 13) + 1 = 18 + 1 = 19 ^{th} *

*Q3. Correct Answer is: d)*

*D > B > C > A*

*Hence, D is tallest amongst all.*

* *

*Q4. Correct Answer is: a)*

*Total number of girls in row1 = 19 + 15 – 1= 33*

*Total number of girls in row2 = 14 + 22 -1 = 35*

*Hence, the total number of girls in both the rows = 33 + 35 = 68*

* *

*Q5. Correct Answer is: d)*

*D > C > A > E > B*

*Hence, both C and A are older than E but younger than D*

* *

*Q6. Correct Answer is: b)*

*Charu -> 25, 26, 27, 28*

*Charu’s sister -> 28, 29, 30*

*Hence, their father’s birthday is definitely on 28 ^{th} May.*

* *

*Q7. Correct answer is: c)*

*The Preethi’s position from end = 36 – 14 + 1 = 23*

*∴** Number of girls between Priyanka and Preethi is, (23 – 11) – 1 = 12 -1 = 11*

*Prithika is in between Priyanka and Preethi, So exact middle out of 11 girls is 6.*

*Hence, the prithika’s position from end is 17 .*

*∴** (23 – 17) -1 = 6 -1 = 5*

*Hence, there are 5 girls between Preethi and Prithika*

*There are two possibilities, either S is to the right of P or S is to the left of P.*

*Hence, data is inadequate to answer the question.*

* *

*Q9. Correct Answer is: b)*

*T > V > P > S > U > Q, R*

* *

*T >V > P > S > U > R > Q*

*The marks secured by Q is, 48-12 = 36*

* *

*Q10. Correct Answer is: a)*

* *

*The expected marks of P and S are 62 and 54 in given options*
