Solution and Answers

Solution 1

If Anil has to give 1 rupee he needs a bag with Re.1 each or Re.2 bag .
To have minimum bags he has a bag with Rs.2.
Now with the two bags, he can give Rs.3.So next he will require a bag with Rs.4.
With these three he can give Rs.5, Rs.6 and Rs.7 and next bag will be one containing Rs.8 and so on. Thus he would have bags with Re.1,2,4,8,16,32. 
Sum of which is 63 and remaining 37 can be put in the last bag. So total number of bags is 7. Hence,(3).

Solution 2

The  number of digits written by Sachin can be divided into one digit, two-digit ,and three-digit numbers.
Thus, from 1 to 999 he has written 2889 digits 
Now, last three numbers till 999 are 997, 998,999. 
Thus, 2883rd digit will be 7. Hence,(3).

Solution 3

H.C.F. of the individual number of diamonds is 13.
Hence, the process should be repeated three times.

Solution 4

H.C.F. of the individual number of diamonds is 17. 
So they have 17( 3+5+6)=17*14=238 diamonds. 
238 is not a multiple of 3.
 So it is not possible to distribute them evenly. Hence, (4).

Solution 5

To divide according to the condition, the share each one will get
