Hello Apoorva! 

From the first statement : 

B < C , D < A  , C < E 

From the second statement :

A > F , A > G , F > D  
and G > F . 

now , G was as old as B when A was as old as G . 

Hence , A = B . 

Combining the results we get : E > C > B = A > G > F > D . 

10. (B) E 

11. (B) D

12. (C) A and B 

13. (C) 



Sir please help me with this set. 



Sir please reply to this puzzle.






I found this solution 


 Let cheque amount be Rs X and Y paise.

The confused bank teller cashed Rs Y and X paise.

It is given that after buying a toffee for 50 paise, Shailaja is left with 3 times of the amount on the cheque.

Therefore, 3(X + Y/100) = (Y + X/100 – 50/100)

(299X + 50)/100 = (97Y/100)

Y = 3X + (8X + 50)/97

X = 18 gives an integral value of Y. 

Hence Option (D)

Correct answer combinations can be 5,4,3,2,1
or 5,3,2,1,0

when we check through 5,4,3,2,1..Then there should be atleast 2 people with 4 same answers. But there are no such 2 people

Hence correct answer combination will be 5 ,3 ,2 ,1, 0
now there there are 3 matches for nobita and shizuka, hence one of them answered 4 correctly.
Further we check then there is only one person who has 2 matches with shizuka and there is no such person for nobita, hence shizuka answered 4 of them correctly.
Now with shizuka's answer we can answer all other questions
