Answers and Explanations

Solution: For questions 1 to 3: It is given that Munna’s score = 4 + Lavina’s score. Since Lavina’s team didn’t score the least number of points, the points of Munna’s team and Lavina’s team will be 8 and 4 respectively. Since Munna will be in the group with a score of 8 and Sanjay and Lavina in the group with a score of 4, Tarun and Soniya will necessarily be in ‘Just Singing’. Now since Hadippa team had a score of 2 more than that team in which Ram is there so the score of ‘Hadippa Singers’ will be 4 and Ram will be in ‘Suhani couple’. Therefore, Sanjay and Lavina will he in ‘Hadippa Singers’. Wadia is in ‘Suhani couple’ as she is not in ‘Old singers’. Based on the inferences, the following table can be formed:

Answer 1: (E)

Answer 2: (D)
