Solutions (6-10)
6. (3)
From statement I, if the first Sunday was on 5th of August, then the last Sunday will be on 26th of August
From statement II, If the last day i.e. 31th is Friday, then 26th August was last Sunday.
Hence either statement I or statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question
7. (4)
Using both statements, there are 21 children in the row. B is 11th from the left and A is 15th from the left. So there are three children between A and B.
8. (2)
First statement is not sufficient to find the answer.
From second statement we can say that A is mother of B.
9. (3)
From first statement, the order is C  _  A  B. Hence B is to the immediate right of A.
From second statement, the order is A B E. Hence B is to the immediate right of A.
Hence either statement I or statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question
10. (3)
From statement I, 3 is common between ‘32’ and ‘637’. Hence ‘3’ means ‘habit’ and ‘2’ means ‘harmful’.
From statement II, 4 is common between ‘64’ and ‘842’. So ‘4’ means ‘drinking’ and 2 means ‘harmful’. Thus ‘3’ means habit.
Hence either statement I or statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question
