Section-1: Complex Arrangement Solved QuestionLogical Reasoning Discussion

Common Information

There are five friends Amisha, Binaya, Celina, Daisy and Eshaan. Two of them play table tennis while the other three play different games, viz. football, cricket and chess. One table tennis player and the chess player stay on the same floor while the other three stay on floors 2, 4 and 5.

Two of the players are industrialists while the other three belong to different occupations viz. teaching, medicine and engineering. The chess player is the oldest while one of the table tennis players, who plays at the national level, is the youngest.

The other table tennis player who plays at the regional level is between the football player and the chess player in age. Daisy is a regional player and stays on floor 2. Binaya is an engineer while Amisha is the industrialist and plays table tennis at the national level.

Daisy plays cricket and football player stays on floor 4. Celina stays on floor 5. Only one of the friends is younger than Daisy.

 Q. Common Information Question: 4/5 Age wise, who among the following lies between Binaya and Eshaan?
 ✖ A. Daisy ✖ B. Amisha ✔ C. Celina ✖ D. Cannot be determined

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Let us tabulate the given information as shown below for the sake of convenience in collating the data in a structured manner as shown below.

Table below can be scrolled horizontally

Name of player Game Floor on which the player stays Occupation Age Level of game
Amisha Tennis   Industrialist Youngest National
Binaya     Engineer
Celina
Daisy Cricket 2   x oldest Regional
Eshan

This question can be solved using the options. Since, it is given in the data that Daisy stays on floor 2, only option 1 can be true as all other options have Daisy as one of the occupants of the floor. Thus, Amisha and Binaya stay on floor 3.

This gives us further data that we can use in order to solve other questions.

The table would now look as follows:

Table below can be scrolled horizontally

Name of player Game Floor on which the player stays Occupation Age Level of game
Amisha Tennis 3 Industrialist Youngest(1) National
Binaya Chess 3 Engineer Oldest(5)
Celina Table Tennis 5   (4) Regional
Daisy Cricket 2   (2) Regional
Eshan Football 4   (3)

From the table, we obtain that Celina lies between Binaya and Eshan when arranged age-wise.

Hence, option C is the correct choice.
