Solutions -  Here, seven friends are: P, Q, R, S, T, V and W Seven destinations are: Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chandigarh and Jaipur. Let us proceed with the following direct information: R — Jaipur—Monday; Bangalore—Saturday; P — Chandigarh; S — Kolkata — Friday; W — Delhi

With the help of above information we get the following table:

1.

2. 
 
Bangalore 
 Sunday
3.  
Chandigarh

4.
S
Kolkata
 Friday
5.

Let us use indirect information. Since Q did not leave for either Hyderabad or Banglore, the above table helps us conclude that Q left for Chennai. Now, T left the next day of P’s departure and on previous day of W’s. According to the above table, P and W did not depart on Monday, Saturday or Friday. T did not depart on Monday or Friday. Now P can’t depart on Sunday or Thursday because T did not depart on Monday or Friday respectively. P can’t departure on Wednesday because W did not departured on Friday. Hence, by elimination, P left for Chandigarh on Tuesday, T left for its destination on Wednesday and W left for Delhi on Thursday.
Now look upon table II.
