Contents | Name of Rooms |
---|---|

Two printers | Pashupatti |

Two computers | Chandrachud |

Two bags | Bagbahadur |

One printer and one computer | Purnachandra |

One bag and one computer | Biswachakra |

One day somebody in the institute changed the name plate of every room such that no room contains the name correctly explaining its contents.

Q. |
If it is known that the room named Purnachandra does not contain either any printer or any computer, the room named Pashupatti does not contain any printer and the room named Chandrachud contains one computer and one bag, then which of the following will definitely be true if only one of the remaining rooms is opened? |

✖ A. |
It will have at least one computer and printer. |

✖ B. |
It will have two printers. |

✖ C. |
It will have at least one computer. |

✔ D. |
It will have at least one printer. |

**Solution:**

Option(**D**) is correct

The room named Purnachandra does not contain either any printer or any computer, which means that it contains two bags (i.e. it is actually room Bagbahadur).

The room named Chandrachud contains one computer and one bag (i.e. it is actually room Biswachakra).

The room named Pashupatti does not contain any printer, which means this room is either room Chandrachud, or room Bagbahadur, or room Biswachakra. However, two of these three rooms are already taken. Hence, this is actually room Chandrachud and contains two computers.

The two remaining rooms are Pashupatti and Purnachandra (original name plates). Hence, one of the remaining two rooms contains two printers and the other room contains one computer and one printer. So, if only one of the remaining rooms is opened, it will have at least one printer.

Hence, **option D** is the correct choice.
