We draw the following tables to solve the question:

Using the preliminary information, we have the following table with respect to their stay location.

Using information given in the question, we know: The Postman and Surgeon do not stay as paying guest. That means Rahul and Kuldeep cannot be the Postman and the Surgeon. Thus, we can build table two now.

Now Rahul can only be the Teacher and we cannot determine the accurate profession of Kurtis or Aarti.

Kurtis can be the Postman/Surgeon.

From table 1, we know that Kurtis and Sanni are staying at the hotel.

Answer 3 : (d)

From Table 3, we know that Rahul is the Teacher.

Answer 4 : (b)

From table 1, we can derive the answer as option (b)
