### Answers and Explanations

Answer 1: (c) E gets in with two others and gets down alone after D and we know that D get down at station 3, so option c.

Answer 2: (d) Since we know that E gets in at station 3 alone and there was nobody who gets in from station 2, therefore D may be get in from station number 1 or base station. So, there is data inadequate so the answer should be d, because C and F get in either at Base station or station I.

Answer 3: (d) we know that B and D work in the same office and they get down together at station III. It means they cannot get in at station 3 so they also may get it from Base station or Station 1 . So none of these is the best answer, so option d.

Answer 4: (c) We know that E gets in with two others and gets down alone after D, B and D work in the same office and they get down together at station III . So E gets down after three stations. So the best answer for the question is E gets down after three stations (I, II And III).

Answer 5 : (b) We know that D gets down at the next station at which F gets down and E gets in with two others and gets down alone after D, B and D work in the same office and they get down together at station III. From this it is clear that E gets down after two stations at which F gets down.
