### Answers and Explanations

**Solution for questions 1 to 4**: From the given mother data, we have

Q ⟵R

P P

R or V

S = Week 1 or 2

Week 3 = V

Week 3 = Product that is advertised twice.

**Answer 1 : (c)**

The two possible cases can be

Week 1 = Q, S

Week 2 = T, R

Week 3 = V, P

Week 4 = T, U

Or

Week 1 = Q, T

Week 2 = S, R

Week 3 = V, P

Week 4 = T, U

So option (C) is correct.

**Answer 2 : (b)**

R should come after Q so, (A) and (E) are eliminated. P cannot be with U, so (C) is also eliminated. (D) cannot be the correct choice as S is not present in the first 2 weeks. So option (B) is correct.

**Answer 3 : (a)**

P and Q as well as Q and R can never be together, so (B) and (C) are eliminated.

S and V cannot be together otherwise Vis in the third week and it is not the repeated element, hence (E) is eliminated.

Q and V cannot be together otherwise R would have to come before Q, hence (D) is eliminated.

Hence U and V can be together.

**Answer 4 : (b)**

R can occupy only 2th or 3th or 4^{th} weeks as it comes after Q.

Similarly, Q can occupy only 1^{st}, 2^{nd} or 3^{rd} week.

T is given to be in week 3.

S also can occupy only 1^{st} or 2^{nd} week.

Hence T becomes the suitable choice among the answer options.
