1. Answer.(d). From the statement I, we cannot say which one-third distance is covered.

From statement II also, we cannot say which two-thirds distance is covered.

Combining both the statements we cannot find the answer.

Hence it cannot be determined.

2. Answer.(b). Statement I, March 31 of (Z + 1) was Sunday, the March 7 must have been Thursday. So, if March 7 of (Z + 1) was Thursday, then March 7 of Z cannot be Monday.

The answer is no.

It does not matter whether Z or (Z + 1) is a leap year or not.

Statement I is sufficient to answer.

Statement II also is sufficient to answer.

3. Answer.(d). Even after combining both the statements, we cannot say surely who is the youngest.

All that we know is Anthony’s age = 49

(Amar’s age + Akbar’s age) = 4

It has to be either Amar 1 year and Akbar 3 years or Amar 3 years and Akbar 1 year old.

4. Answer.(d). Combining I and II,

In the second half

Brazil – 1, Argentina – 4 is the only option.

But in the first half

Brazil – 1, Argentina – 1

Brazil – 4, Argentina – 4 … and so on.

So, total goals scored by Argentina cannot be determined.

@admin-: I dont think that to find average speed, we have know that which one third distance is covered.

simply we can find avg. speed by-

avg. speed = total distance/ total time taken

if this is not true then give me more explanation about this please.
