      Answers & Solutions
      1 .    
      Answer : Option D
      Explanation :
      Shyam is shorter than Madan as well as Rohit. In the other group, Vipin and Vivek are taller than Akash and Ahmed respectively. Now if Rohit or Vipin or Vivek do not occupy the first position it means it is Madan who is the tallest. Second is of course, Rohit. Beyond this we can’t proceed with certainty.

      Answer : Option B
      Explanation :
