Set Theory

Some students appeared for a test having 4 sections: QA, LR, DI and VA. Every student clears the cut-off in one or more of these sections. 43, 42, 36 and 39 students cleared the cut-off of QA, LR, DI and VA respectively. Further it is known that:
I. 11, 12, 13 and 14 students cleared the cut-off in at least 2 more sections apart from DI, LR, VA and QA respectively.
II. The number of students who cleared the cut-off of QA and LR only is equal to those who cleared the cut-off of DI and VA only which is two more than those who cleared the cutoff of QA, LR and DI only.

III. The number of people who cleared the cut-off in QA and exactly one more section is equal to those who cleared cut-off in LR and exactly one more section but is 2 less than those who cleared cut-off in VA and exactly one more section.
IV. 15 students cleared the cut-off of QA only, 6 students cleared the cut-off of VA only, 4 students cleared the cut-off of LR and QA only whereas 6 students

1. How many students cleared the cut-off in more than 2 sections?

2. How many students cleared the cut-off in QA and LR but not in DI?

3. How many students cleared cut-off in all 4 sections?

4. What is the difference between the number of students who cleared cut-off in exactly one section and those who cleared cut-off in exactly 3 sections?

Number/Quant Based DI

Two brothers A and B are standing at a point P on a highway. They start playing a game with a die. The die is in form of a cube with integers 1 to 6 written on its six faces with one number on each face. Each one of them throws the die alternately. If the number appearing on the top face of the die is greater than the number appeared in the previous throw by the
same brother then he moves forward (towards point Q situated on the same highway) by the number of steps equal to the number that appears on the top face of the die. If the number appearing on the top face of the die by a brother is less than the number appeared in the previous throw on the top face of the die, then that brother moves backwards (towards point P) by the number of steps equal to the number that appears on the top face of the die . If the number appearing on the top face of the die in a throw by a
brother is same as that in the previous throw by him, then the throw is considered as cancelled and he throws the die again till a different number appears on the top face of the die. If after a throw, someone needs to take certain number of backward steps which prompts him to go even behind P, that throw is also considered as cancelled. In this case he has to throw the die again. In their first throw, these brothers move forward (towards Q) by the number of steps equal to the number that appears on the top face of the die (as they do not have any previous score to compare it with). Length of steps of these brothers is always same and constant. Round ‘n’ comprises nth throw of both the brothers.

What can be the maximum possible distance between the two brothers after the first 4 rounds?
(1) 24 steps (2) 18 steps (3) 12 steps (4) 10 steps

If the number appearing on the top face of the die in 6 consecutive throws by A are distinct and 6 appears in the third throw, then what can be the maximum possible distance (towards Q) covered by A in these 6 throws?
(1) 12 steps (2) 14 steps (3) 19 steps (4) 18 steps

If A reaches Q without taking any backward step ever, what can be the maximum distance between P and Q?

If there was at least one throw in which A moves backwards (towards P) and A traveled 27 steps in the forward direction (towards Q), then the minimum possible number of times A threw the dice is
(1) 12 (2) 8 (3) 9 (4) 7

In a particular throw by B, the number that appeared on the top face of the die was 1 and after that throw B was 14 steps ahead of A. Find the minimum possible number of throws required such that the distance between the two brothers becomes zero. A had got 1 on the top face of the die in his last throw.
(1) 3 (2) 2 (3) 5 (4) 4

Six students, named Ajay, Bharat, Chandan, Dinesh, Gaurav and Hitesh secured 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 marks in an examination (in no particular order). Names of their fathers were Ajit, Bhushan, Chandrakant, Dattaray, Gangadhar and Hari (in no particular order).
