  1. Pawan Kandpal

    in question (5) how you have taken G and H in case 2..in question it is not mentioned..please explain

    1. But G and H are present in statements na

      1. Pawan Kandpal

        yes but not in case 2 as in 4th question also number of students are not mentioned in case 2 but mentioned in case 1 please explain

        1. In 4th q. We need to have number of students in class to know the rank. And so we cannot take number of children as 40 in case 2 as that is given for statement 1 only.

          In 5th question there is no extra information like that given. Only points are given so we can relate those points in both statements. Here in statement 2 we do not have any use of point H

          1. Pawan Kandpal

            so in question 5 we are not getting directly these points but we have to relate these points in above case ..so here we are assuming the given points for case 2 ..??

          2. No no we are not assuming
            We cant assume anything in questions.
            Q 5 k statement 2 me given hai ki person point K se chalke point F tak phauncha.
