Answers & Explanations:

For questions 1 to 8 :

  1. 3
  2. 4
  3. 5
  4. 2
  5. 4
  6. 2
  7. 5
  8. 4

For questions 9 to 12 :
The first statement suggests : B is now as old as C was in the
past. Therefore, B < C. Also sometime in the past, A was twice
as old as D. So A > D. C will be as old as E in future. Hence C
< E.
The second statement suggests : A > F. A was as old as G in
the past. Therefore, A > G. D will be as old as F in future. So F
> D. F will be as old as G now in future. This implies G > F. G
was as old as B, when A was as old as G. Hence, A = B.
Combining both the results, we get :
E > C > B = A > G > F > D (Note by A = B, it is meant that they are
of similar age group, not necessarily the same).

9. b It could be figured out that E is the eldest brother.
10. b D is the youngest brother.
11. c Only A and B could probably be twins.
12. c It could be figured out that only statement (c) is false as B has only 2 elder brothers and not 3.
