**Directions (6 â€“ 10): Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.**

There is a rectangular sheet pasted on a wall with 8 unequal divisions (in height) vertically. Its dimensions are 16*64 sq. cm. Top division is numbered 1, then 2, and so on. Each division contains different number of small square sheets pasted in them. The side of these small square sheets is 4 cm each. One layer inside a division can contain only 4 sheets and remaining sheets are kept above these 4 in layers accordingly (The second layer can be started to fill with sheets only after filling the first layer with 4 sheets, and so on). So height of a particular division is according to the number of layers in respective divisions. Each division contains different colored sheets – pink, blue, white, yellow, red, grey, silver, green but not necessarily in the same order (If division 1 contains blue colored sheet, then all sheets in division 1 are blue colored)

There are 2 divisions between the division with 4 sheets and red colored sheets. The sum of sheets in division number 1 and 6 is 14. If the sheets in division number 4 are combined to form a large square, they form a 8*8 sq. cm square. Height of division number 7 is 12 cm. The division carrying yellow colored sheets is next in number to division carrying red colored sheets. The division leaving 3 divisions from division carrying red colored sheets is 4 cm in height. No division carries less than 2 sheets. There are 3 divisions between the division with 7 sheets and blue colored sheets. The division with red colored sheets contains 6 sheets. 3 of the divisions have same height (in cm) and number of sheets in them respectively. There is 1 division between the division with 8 sheets and white colored sheets. There are 3 divisions between the division with 10 sheets and silver colored sheets. There are more than 2 divisions between the division with silver colored and white colored sheets. The division with blue colored sheets does not contain 8 sheets. There is 1 division between the division with 5 sheets and green colored sheets. The division with grey colored sheets is above the division with green colored sheets. The division with pink colored sheets is below the division with grey colored sheets. There are total 54 sheets to be pasted on the rectangular sheet.

- How many sheets does division 7 contain?

A) 8

B) 11

C) 10

D) 12

E) 9

- Division 6 contains which colored sheets?

A) grey

B) white

C) blue

D) green

E) pink

- What is the total height of divisions 2, 6 and 8?

A) 28 cm

B) 26 cm

C) 24 cm

D) Other than those given in options

E) 20 cm

- Which of the division numbers satisfy the condition – 3 of the divisions have same height (in cm) and number of sheets in them respectively?

A) 2, 3, and 6

B) 3, 4, and 6

C) 2, 3, and 5

D) 2, 4, and 6

2nd question ka logic samaj nhh aaya….PLZ tell me

In the instructions it is given that more than 2 consecutive people cannot face same direction.

After this read the explanation

Mam I mean 2nd wali PUZZLE

Start from here

If the sheets in division number 4 are combined to form a large square, they form a 8*8 sq. cm square.

Then

There are 2 divisions between the division with 4 sheets and red colored sheets.

so 2 possibilities now.

Next yellow just below red

Next

The division leaving 3 divisions from division carrying red colored sheets is 4 cm in height.

Proceed now

THANKU MAM

mam

how to fix height of Dv-1,3 & 8 rest of them i arranged but little doubt abt height of division 1,3 & 8

mam

now i got the height concept

Div – 1 is 6 sheet so it is below 8 and above 4 so that we fix 8 ( incase that is above 8 ex.9 we will fix the hgt – 12

is it correct?

Yes correct.

4 sheets in one level.

One level means 4 cm height.

If sheets 5-8 then 8 cm height

txs

.If the sheets in division number 4 are combined to form a large square, they form a 8*8 sq. cm square â€“> means â€“ a 8*8 square means length 8 and breadth 8, means 2 sheets below, and 2 sheets above these 2 sheets to form a 8*8 square, means division 4 contains 4 sheets thus height = 4 cm

@@viveknvr:disqus isme ,2 sheets above and 2 sheets below bethaye h, toh iska height 8 kyu nhi as ek layer ki lenght toh 4 ha na why height 4

and mam isme vse 2 sheets ko upar and below kyu bethaye h as ek layer m toh 4 aa skte h

please explain?

mind blowing:))))))

mam i have started with the given condition a facing outside then only 2 possiblites arise which gets cancelled out while further solving….????????

A se solve karke dekhna pdega

@mod

qsn 2nd

…… how to divide 14 sheets between division number 2 & division number5.?

m nt able to getting ur point form ” So div 2 must contain 12 sheets. Now total number of

sheets is 54, so div 5 will contain 2 sheets.”………..how div 2 must contain 12 sheet…..it might be 10 or 11…!! plz clear my doubt _/_

Its dimensions are 16*64 sq. cm.

So height = 24 cm

At last only division 12 will be left

Add the height of all other divisions, it will be 52 cm

so div 2 will be 64 – 52 = 12 cm

Next given , 3 of the divisions have same height (in cm) and number of sheets in them respectively. -………………….(1)

4th div is 4 cm 4 sheets

6th div is 8 cm 8 sheets

2 divisions are done

so 1 more left for condition (1)

so 12 cm means 12 sheets

so div 2 –> 12 cm 12 sheets

now total sheets 54

and find for div 5

ab aaya shi se smj….. thnq _/_

1 more qsn….what if i put 4 sheets on 5th division & 10 sheets to 2nd division…

it also make condition correct that “3 of the divisions have same height (in cm) and number of sheets in them respectively”

4th div is 4 cm 4 sheets

6th div is 8 cm 8 sheets

5th div is 4cm 4 sheets

See this

Each division contains different number of small square sheets

mam

how fix E ( inside ) in 1st seating arrangement que?

pls explain

why not?

E ( Out )

B ( In )

G ( Out )

Because they didn’t specify the direction of ( E,B & G )

Ok mam

now i clear

only 4 inside & 4 outside

i got it

WOULD ,you like to explain .

i didn;t get its logic

@mod..is d 2nd puzzle pattern came in sbi mains exam??

No it did not come in SBI PO

Its self made

Yes.

B and G are not facing same direction. – missed

Ok thank you mam

solved 1st qwestion

Mam check this possibility for the first puzzle, @Shubhra_AspirantsZone:disqus
