Solutions:
(1 – 5):
1. Swimming is not scheduled on Monday
2. Shooting is scheduled on Thursday
3. Since Weight Lifting is scheduled immediately after boxing so Weight lifting cannot be on Friday
4. Since Shooting is scheduled on Thursday therefore Wrestling cannot be on Monday, because we are given by the statement that between Wrestling and Basketball there must be two games so if Wrestling is scheduled on Monday it will not possible for Basketball to schedule after three days
5. Boxing and Cycling are on the same day so both will be on the same day so they will be on either Sunday or Saturday, since Weightlifting is scheduled after Boxing Therefore Boxing and Cycling would be on Saturday and Weight Lifting would scheduled on Sunday
6. Wrestling cannot be scheduled on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday so Wresting is scheduled on Tuesday and Basketball would be scheduled on Friday
