EI only one pair

Ans. 4.

Kalika’s rank from the top = (Total students – rank from the bottom) + 1
Kalika’s rank = (37 – 7) + 1
= 29th
Seema’s rank from the top = Ankur’s rank from the top + kalika’s rank from the top / 2

It is clear that Priyanka’s shadow fell towards left. So, she is facing north.
Therefore, Viral standing with his back towards priyanka will be facing south.

Ans. 7.

Man’s son’s sister = daughter of the man
Man’s daughter = mother in law of woman (speaker)
So, the woman (speaker) is married to man’s daughter’s son.
Therefore, woman’s husband is the grandson of the man in the photograph.

Conclusion 1 does not follow because it is not directly related with the given statement.
Conclusion 2 follows because it provides a suitable explanation to the given statement as one should have some solutions.
