 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

It is clear that $C + F + H + B + S + V = 18$

Also, from the bar – graph, the value of $C, F, B, H$ and $V$ is $3, 2, 5, 2$ and $4$ respectively.

Therefore,

$S = 18 – (3 + 2 + 5 + 2 + 4) = 2$

Since, the number of siblings who chose Basketball is 5 and there are exactly three sports that have not been chosen by Aslam as well as Ahmad (Additional information II), therefore, Aslam as well as Ahmad chose Basketball.

Also, form additional information II, Aslam and Azhar chose Cricket and Swimming.

Since, the number of siblings who chose Volleyball is $4$, therefore except for Ahmad and Azhar, every other sibling chose Volleyball. Since, Armaan did not choose Basketball and there is one sport that has not been chosen by Armaan but is chosen by Atif, therefore that sport is Basketball.

Also, the three sports chosen by Armaan are Football, Hockey and Volleyball.

where did this come from C + F + H + B + S + V = 18

" Also, from additional information II, Aslam and Azhar chose Cricket and Swimming. " This statement is not correct. It should be aslam and ahmad instead of aslam and azhar.
