lecture F was not delivered on Thursday. Again, from clue (iv): Tuesday and
Saturday were not holiday. From direction part it is obvious that neither
Monday nor Sunday was holiday. So, by elimination holiday was either on
Thursday or on Friday.|
Now, from clues (iii) and (iv) we get the following orders of lectures of B and F X.
B * Holiday F Y.
Holiday F * * B
Reject the possibility ‘Y’ because according to it there must be at least four lectures after holiday. This is not possible even when the holiday is on Thursday. Now, use the possibility ‘X’. If holiday is on Friday, two lectures (B & E) need to be arranged on Wednesday, which is not possible.
Therefore, the holiday must be on Thursday. And the lectures B and F delivered on Tuesday and Friday respectively.
