**Directions (6 – 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.
