Directions (1 – 5): Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a circle facing the centre but not necessarily in the same order. Each of them has a relationship with A.

    Option D
    First use D, mother of A is sitting opposite to the sister of A. Daughter of A is sitting to third to right of sister of A. E is sitting to the immediate left of sister of A.
    After this
    Use B is sitting to the immediate right of wife of A. Remember E is male. We get 3 arrangements as:
    Next use: Brother of A is sitting third to right of B.
    Next we have only 1 position left for placing A in all 3 arrangements as
    Next, see In 3rd arrangement, A is sitting second to the right of daughter of E. But here E is 2nd to right of his own daughter. Then E should be wife of W. But in this arrangement, E and wife are different. SO cancel this arrangement.
    Next, see in 2nd arrangement: we have E who is a male is sitting second to the right of mother of C. But here E is second to right of brother who cannot be mother of C.
    So now we are left with only 1st arrangement.
    Now B or E can be father of A. G is sitting second to the left of father of A. So this gives that E is father of A, thus B his son. Proceed further. We get

        1. Let 3 yrs ago pop was x.
          So after 2 yrs. Pop is 125% of 125% of x
          After 3 yrs it is 125% of 125% of 125% of x which is given to b 1 crore
          Solve and find x
          Then find pop after 2 yrs and then difference

          1. Hemant ahuja?

            Ye to calculation hi jayegi. Bhut. Koi easy trick

          2. Yes.
            U know successive method ?

          3. For 2 yrs
            25 + 25 + 25×25/100 = 56.25%
            So pop in second yr is 56.25% of x

          4. Hemant ahuja?

            x meas 1 cr?

          5. No no
            X is population 3 yrs ago.
            2ys k liye
            156.25% of x
            3 yrs k liye
            56.25 + 25 + 56.25×25/100 = approx 95%
            So 195% of x = 1 crore
            Yahn se x aaega
            Then 2 yrs vala nikalo which is 156.25% of x
            Then difference

            OR
            use
            125% of 125% of 125% of x = 1 crore.
            So 5/4 × 5/4 × 5/4 × x = 1 crore
            X = 5120000
            Ab 2 yrs ki pop = 156.25% of 5120000
            Then difference.
