Confirmed subjects are shown in BOLD.

  • Psychology is immediately after Organisational Behaviour
  • One day prior to the schedule of Economics there is no lecture
  • there is one day gap between Statistics and Research Methods
  • Statistics is not on Friday
We also have an important condition
  • Psychology is immediately after Organisational Behaviour
So we have three pairs <Off-Eco>, <Stat-X-RM> and <OB-Psy> and these cover the 7 days. So, CS is the X between Stat and RM. 
 
Now, Stat can come on Tue, Wed or Thu based on given condition for CS and Stat.
Off-Eco cannot come on Mon. 
So, <Stat-CS-RM> <Off-Eco> takes 5 out of 6 days from Tue-Sun. But we need 2 continuous days for <OB-Psy>. So, it is clear <OB-Psy> must be on Mon-Tue, and <Stat- CS- RM> starts on Wed and <Off-Eco> starts on Sat. 
 
 
MonTueWedThuFriSatSun

So answers are as follows:
1. Economics.
2. None of these (5-1), 5 days before and 1 day after the offday
3. None of these
4. Three
5. Thursday

Now, Stat can come on Tue, Wed or Thu based on given condition for CS and Stat.

why Stat cannot be taught on Sat or sunday?
Because after stat, we have 2 more subjects and this is not a cyclic arrangement. So if stat comes on SAT, we can have only one more sub after it.
i mean to say   RM-X- Stat is it not possible?
If we go by word meaning it is possible. But since the arrangement is not cyclic, "there is one day gap between Statistics and Research Methods", we can take Statistics -X - RM is the only possibility.
