(1 - 4):

 Person Gender Profession Dress P Male Engineer Brown Q Female Doctor Blue R Male Lawyer Brown S Female Engineer Black or Green T Female Teacher Blue U Male Lawyer Black or Green

1. 1; 2. 2; 3. 3; 4. 3

(5 - 8):

Chi na lee bee pi – Tom and Jerry are friends …..(1)

Ki bee lo tic – all friends plays crickets ……(2)

da ki chi – Tom plays Football ………..(3)

tic na da – Football and Cricket ………(4)

mo ki – player plays ……..(5)

From (1) and (3), - Tom

From (1) and (2), bee – friends

From (1) and (4), na – and

From (1), lee dpi – Jerry are ………(6)

Since neither Jerry not are is common with any other equation, we can’t find the exact code for Jerry. It may be either lee or pi

From (2) and (3), ki – plays

From (2) and (4), tic – Cricket

From (3) and (4), da – Football

Now, from (2), lo – all

From (5), mo – player

5. 4; 6. 3;

7. 1; only friends plays football

Fi bee ki da

8. 2; Jerry and friends are player

Na bee mo

From (6), lee pi – Jerry are

So, pi lee na bee mo is the required code.

9. 5; Given M < N < P > R > S < K

Comparisons is not possible

So, (1) is false.

Again, N < P > R > S.

Comparison is not possible

So, (2) is false.

(3) is also false. Even for the middle terms, comparison is not possible so, comparison of end terms will certainly not be possible.

Again,

M < N < P > R > S

Comparison is not possible, so (4) is also not true.

10. 2; Check for (1):

M = P < Q < R > S > Y < W < x

Combining

Y < X

So, this is not true.

Check for option (2):

M = P < Q < R > S > Y < W < X

Combining

M < Q < R > S > Y < X

Combining

M < R

So, this is true.

Check for option (3):

M = P < Q < R > S > Y < W < X

M = P < R

So, option (3) is not true. (4) is also not true.
