5. In a class of 30 students, Rashmi secured the third rank among the girls, while her brother Kumar studying in the same class secured the sixth rank in the whole class. Between the two, who had a better overall rank? A: Kumar was among the top 25% of the boys merit list in the class in which 60% were boys. B: There were three boys among the top five rank holders, and three girls among the top ten rank holders. Solution: Statement A: Nothing can be said. Statement B: Since there are 3 boys in the top 5 rank holders, the other two are girls and Rashmi is not one of them. As Kumar is ranked sixth, Rashmi is either seventh or below. Hence, statement II alone is sufficient. Answer: Option (1)

6. Zakib spends 30% of his income on his children's education, 20% on recreation and 10% on healthcare. The corresponding percentages for Supriyo are 40%, 25%, and 13%, who spends more on children's education? A: Zakib spends more on recreation than Supriyo. B: Supriyo spends more on healthcare than Zakib. Choose 1 if the question can be answered by using one of the statements alone but not by using the other statement alone. Choose 2 if the question can be answered by using either of the statements alone. Choose 3 if the question can be answered by using both statements together but not by either statement alone. Choose 4 if the question cannot be answered on the basis of the two statements.

6. Zakib spends 30% of his income on his children's education, 20% on recreation and 10% on healthcare. The corresponding percentages for Supriyo are 40%, 25%, and 13%, who spends more on children's education? A: Zakib spends more on recreation than Supriyo. B: Supriyo spends more on healthcare than Zakib. Solution: Let incomes of Zakib and Supriyo be Z and S respectively. Statement A: 20% of Z > 25% of z >-s Now, Zakib spent 30% of his income on education-> 30% of Z >--x-S From this we cannot say if 0.3 Z is greater than or less than 0.4S. Hence, statement A alone is not sufficient. 0.375 S Statement B: 13% of S > 10% of Z Multiplying both sides by 3, we get, 39% of S > 30 % of z so 40% of S is definitely more than 30% of Z. Hence, statement B alone is sufficient. Answer: Option (1)
