Answers and Explanations

For questions 1 to 5:

According to the given data provided in the question, direct inferences that can be made are:

  1. Only one college was rated as 3-grade and one as five grade.
  2. Birla college was rated as 5-grade.

It is also given that Ms. Rathore joined ‘Ajinkya Institute’ Since Sweety(Ms.) joined at Mundra Institute’, Mukul and Junaid are not Ms. So either Peehu or Sukanya has to be Rathore. Also, Mukul cannot study in Mudra, Ajinkya or Birla. So he joined either St. Xavier or Chemical.

It is given that Ms. Kuleika and Junaid joined a 4-grade college and Sukanya’s last name was not Chaitnya. Chemical college had a rating one less than that of the college where Shah joined. So it has to be either a 3-grade or a 4-grade college. But Mukul joined St. Xavier or Chemical, a 4-grade and Chemical as given to be a 4 grade collge. Birla is a 5-grade. St. Xavier, Mudra and Chemical are 4-grades.

So Ajinkya is a 3-grade and PeehuRathore joined Ajinkya. Shah joined a 5-grade rated college, so Sukanya should have joined there. Based on the infer­ences, the following table can be formed:

Answer 2 : (a)

Answer 3 : (b)

Answer 4 : (e)

Answer 5 : (b)
