  • 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
OBPsyStatsCSRMOffEco

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
