Answer the question on the basis of following information.

Shown below is a layout of major streets in a city.

Two days (Thursday and Friday) are left for campaigning before a major election, and the city administration has received requests from five political parties for taking out their processions along the following routes.

Congress: A-C-D-E

BJP: A-B-D-E

SP: A-B-C-E

BSP: B-C-E

CPM: A-C-D

 

Street B-D cannot be used for a political procession on Thursday due to a religious procession. The district administration has a policy of not allowing more than one procession to pass along the same street on the same day. However, the administration must allow all parties to take out their procession during these two days.

Which of the following is not true?

  1. Congress and SP can take out their processions on the same day.
  2. The CPM procession cannot be allowed on Thursday.
  3. The BJP procession can only take place on Friday.
  4. Congress and BSP can take out their processions on the same day.

Best answer

Ans Should be D)

From the given clue "Street B-D cannot be used for a political procession on Thursday due to a religious procession."

1) we get idea that BJP which have route A--B--D--E taking out their procession only on friday . 

2) now we can compare route of congress which is A--C--D--E , here D--E route is same as BJP ROUTE A--B--D--E . so they will not at same day ( according to The district administration has a policy of not allowing more than one procession to pass along the same street on the same day)

so BJP on friday and Congress on Thursday . hence option c is correct .

3) given route of SP is A--B--C--E and route of BJP is A--B--D--E , Here A--B are common route so they will not be on same day . (according to The district administration has a policy of not allowing more than one procession to pass along the same street on the same day)  so SP also on taking out their procession on Thursday . hence " option A is also correct "

4) option B is also true , CPM ROUTE is A--C---D , And congress route is A--C--D--E  , here A--C is common so they cant do same day so CPM will do on friday ..

5) option D) which is NOT TRUE , due to common route as SP .

hence congress and sp on same day ( thursday ) and BJP , CPM AND BSP on friday
