Answer 1: (d)

In this case, since the application is done and it is to be passed by the ER, the tourist can go either on Monday or on Tuesday, get his approval and then deposit the form to get the final approval. His task will be completed within the same day.

Answer 2 : (c)

On Monday, he fills up the form.

On Tuesday, he gets the approval of the CLO.

On Wednesday afternoon, he deposits the application.

Answer 3 : (a)

If a tourist has to complete the task in a single day, the only option that he has is that he needs to complete it on Friday and get it approved by the CLO. There is no other way in which he can complete the task in a single day. Thus, statement (I) is incorrect.
