Common solution for the set: State 3 contains Engineering institute and state 6 contains a business institute. State 6 cannot contain an Engineering institute and also states 1, 4 and 5 cannot contain an Engineering institute as they share the common boundary. Therefore, state 2 contains an Engineering institute. From the given information and above conclusions the following diagram can be drawn.
Answer 1: (D) Because dental institute can only be in 2, 4 and 6 states as per the condition, it cannot be in 1,3,5. The correct option is (D).
Answer 2: (E) Engineering institutes are already assigned to state 2 and 3. So option A,C and D can be eliminated. 2 cannot be assigned business institute as per condition. The correct option is (E).
Answer 3: (C) 2 and 3 states cannot have business institute as per condition. So, option B and E can be eliminated. Rest state can be assigned Business institute. The correct option is (C).
Answer 4: (D) For the common solution for this set, refer to solution of Question 1. According to the condition, there is a Dental institute in state 4 The correct option is (D).
