Direction (Q. 6 - 10) : Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions based on it.
A, B, C, D, E and F are six persons of an organisation XYZ. They go to their office daily from Monday to Saturday. Of these six days, they use bike for five days and car for only one day for the purpose. No two persons use their cars on the same day. They use cars of different colours, ie blue, green, yellow, indigo, pink and white but not necessarily in the same order. Study the following clues and answer the given questions.
I. The colour of A's car is neither pink nor green.
II.. A and F do not go to office by car on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
III. One who goes by car on Wednesday uses white car whereas one who goes by car on Saturday uses pink car.
IV. B uses either blue or green car but D uses yellow car.
V. C goes by car on Friday. He uses the car having indigo colour.
Who among the following goes to his office by car on Tuesday ?
If E used his car on 2nd January 2002 then who among the following will use his car on the last day of the same year ? They follow the same routine throughout the year. (Assume the day is not a holiday.)
Since E uses his car on wednesday 2nd jan 2002 was wednesday. Therefore, 1st Jan 2002 was Tuesday. Again since 2002 is not a leap year, the last day of the year would also be a Tuesady we have no clear information about the person who uses his car on tuesday.
Weknow 2000 years has 0 odd days. The year 2001 is an ordinary year and consists of one odd day and again odd days up to July 1 = 3 (Jan) + 0 (Feb) + 3 (March) + 2 (April) + 3 (May) + 2 (June) + 1 (July) = 14 odd days.
Total number of odd days = 1 + 14 = 15 odd days. Again when 15 is divided by 7, we get one as remainder. Hence 1st July 2002 was Monday. On that day A uses Blue car.
