1. A) Here, simply write the code as no rule applies.
Hence code for 1395470 is DAGLVNT.
2. D) Here, 1st rule applies i.e. first digit is even and the last digit is odd.
Hence code for 26350097 is \$RALTTG@.
3. C) Here, 2nd rule applies i.e. if the first digit is odd and the last digit is eventhey are to be coded as # and £ respectively.

(6 – 10):
Operators: Rohit, Sushil, Tanmay, Uday, Vinay, Arun, Chetan, Kushal and Shubham
Hour slot: 00:00 hrs, 04:00 hrs, 08:00 hrs, 12:00 hrs, 16:00 hrs and 20:00 hrs
Each operator work continuously for four hours. At least 1 operator required each slot.
Colleges: Birla, Vidyaniketan, Gupta, Oriental and Imperial.
Cities: Jamshedpur, Pune, Noida, Hyderabad and Mangalore
1. Operator(s) trained in Birla College will start working at 12:00 hrs. Only Uday and Arun Operate from Pune. The operator (s) from Jamshedpur, which has Gupta College, will start working at 0:00 hrs.

 Time slot Operator College City Condition Rohit No more from Pune. 12:00 – Birla, 00:00 – Jamshedpur. Jamshedpur = Gupta Sushil Tanmay Uday Pune Vinay Arun Pune Chetan Kushal Shubham
2. Shubham operates alone from a city other than Mangalore and Jamshedpur.
Uday and Arun are not trained in Gupta College. Rohit and Kushal are not from Mangalore.
The operator(s) trained in Oriental College operate from Hyderabad.
Three of the operators took training from Vidyaniketan College, and they operate from Noida.
 Time slot Operator College City Condition Rohit × Mangalore Same location as Kushal No more from Pune. 12:00 – Birla, 00:00 – Jamshedpur. Oriental = Hyderabad 3 from Sutnama = Noida Jamshedpur = Gupta Sushil Tanmay Uday × Gupta Pune Vinay Arun × Gupta Pune Chetan Kushal × Mangalore Same location as Rohith Shubham × Mangalore × Jamshedpur
3. No operator(s) will join at 20:00 hrs. Sushil, who alone operates from his location, was not trained in Oriental college, and will commence his duty four hours after the operator(s) trained in Gupta College
 Time slot Operator College City Condition Rohit × Mangalore Same location as Kushal No more from Pune. 12:00 – Birla, 00:00 – Jamshedpur. Jamshedpur = Gupta Oriental = Hyderabad 3 × Sutnama = Noida 20:00 slot = empty Gupta + 4hrs = Sushil. Sushil × Oriental Only person from his location Tanmay Uday × Gupta Pune Vinay Arun × Gupta Pune Chetan Kushal × Mangalore Same location as Rohith Shubham × Mangalore × Jamshedpur
4. Locations not possible for Shubham: Pune, Noida, [as 3 persons are from Noida and Shubham operates alone] Mangalore and Jamshedpur. So, Shubham is from Hyderabad.  Shubham studies @ Oriental.
Locations not possible for Sushil: Pune, Noida, [as 3 persons are from Noida and Shubham operates alone] Hyderabad, Jamshedpur [it starts at 00:00 while Sushil = Gupta + 4hrs} So, Sushil is from Mangalore.
3 are from Noida, 2 are from Pune, 1 is from Mangalore, 1 is from Hyderabad 2 are from Jamshedpur Rohith, Kushal are not from: Mangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Noida
Rohith and Kushal are from Jamshedpur. And, rest of the others are from Noida.
 Time slot Operator College City Condition 00:00 Rohit Gupta Jamshedpur No more from Pune. 12:00 – Birla, 00:00 – Jamshedpur. Jamshedpur = Gupta Oriental = Hyderabad 3 × Sutnama = Noida 20:00 slot = empty Gupta + 4hrs = Sushil. 04:00 Sushil Mangalore Tanmay Sutnama Noida Uday Pune Vinay Sutnama Noida Arun Pune Chetan Sutnama Noida 00:00 Kushal Gupta Jamshepur Shubham Oriental Hyderabad
5. Since, Sushil isn’t from Gupta, Oriental and Sutnama. So, he’s either from Birla or Imperial. As, Sushil is lone person from his city and the number of operator (s) trained in Imperial College = number of operator(s) trained in Oriental College = 1.
Rest are from Birla
 Time slot Operator College City Condition 00:00 Rohit Gupta Jamshedpur No more from Pune. 12:00 – Birla, 00:00 – Jamshedpur. Jamshedpur = Gupta Oriental = Hyderabad 3 × Sutnama = Noida 20:00 slot = empty Gutakal + 4hrs = Sushil. 04:00 Sushil Imperial Mangalore Tanmay Sutnama Noida 12:00 Uday Birla Pune Vinay Sutnama Noida 12:00 Arun Birla Pune Chetan Sutnama Noida 00:00 Kushal Gupta Jamshepur Shubham Oriental Hyderabad
6. Noida people don’t work in 16:00 hrs slot. Shubham works in 16:00 hrs slot and Noida people work in 8:00 hrs slot.
 Time slot Operator College City 00:00 Rohit Gupta Jamshedpur 04:00 Sushil Imperial Mangalore 8:00 Tanmay Sutnama Noida 12:00 Uday Birla Pune 8:00 Vinay Sutnama Noida 12:00 Arun Birla Pune 8:00 Chetan Sutnama Noida 00:00 Kushal Gupta Jamshepur 16:00 Shubham Oriental Hyderabad
6. B) A. At least three operates will be working between 04:00 hrs to 09:00 hrs True
B. At most five operates will be working between 04:00 hrs to 08:00 hrs False
C. At most three operates will be working between 12:00 hrs to 17:00 hrs true
D. At least 1 operates will be working between 16:00 hrs to 20:00 hrs true
Hence, ‘At most five operates will be working between 04:00 hrs to 08:00’ is the answer.
7. E) A. The only operator working between 8:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs is Sushil → False.
B. The Operators working between 8:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs are Sushil, Uday and Arun → False.
C. The operators working between 8:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs are Uday, Kushal and Arun → False.
D. The operators working between 8:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs are Shubham, Uday, Arun, Tanmay and Chetan → False.
E. The only operators working between 8:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs are Tanmay, Chetan and Vinay → True.
Hence, ‘The only operators working between 8:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs are Tanmay, Chetan and Vinay’ is the answer.
8. A) Clearly, Gupta college operators are from Jamshedpur working in 00:00 hours slot is true.
9. C) Clearly, 8:00 hrs slot people are from Noida and took training from Sutnama is true.
10. B) Hence, Shubham took training from Oriental College is true.
