What is C’s favourite subject?

a) Economics
b) Biology
c) English
d) Geography
e) None of these

Solution


Eight students are studying in three standards VI, VII and VIII. Each student have different favourite subject. Following the question line by line,  D likes Chemistry and studies in Std. VIII with only H. This means that D like Chemistry and studies in same standard as H, VIII and ‘only’ means that there is no other student studying in VIII standard with them. VIII → D, H  B does not study in Std. VII. This means B studies in VI standard as only two students D and H studies in VIII standard and B does not study in VII.  E and A study in same Std. but not with B. This means that A and E studies in VII standard. VII → A, E  C and F study in the same Std. It means that C and F studies with B in VI standard as according to the condition not more than three students study in same standard. Standard VIII is already full with only two students and Standard VII already have A and E and if C, F are included the strength becomes four which is not following the condition. So C and F studies in VI standard. VI → C, F and B Only one person is left G and standard VII has two students, so G studies in VII standard. VII → G  F likes Physics. The one who studies in Std. VIII likes English. A’s favourite subject is Marathi F → Physics, A → Marathi and H → English (there are only two students in VIII and D like Chemistry, so clearly E likes English)  Those who study in Std. VI do not like Mathematics or Biology. C does not like Geography. G does not like Biology. VI (B, C, F) →  Biology, Mathematics and G →  Biology This means only person left is E → Biology and G → Mathematics Now, C → Geography means B → Geography and C → Economics (only subject left)
Students Standard Subject
A VII Marathi
B VI Geography
C VI Economics
D VIII Chemistry
E VII Biology
F VI Physics
G VII Mathematics
H VIII English
6) Answer: a) Economics Explanation: From the above table, C studies in VI standard and C’s favourite subject is Economics. The correct answer is option (a)
