26.  Question: In a row of five children A, B, C, D and E, who is standing in the middle ? Statements:


Answer: Option E Explanation: From I, we have the order: B, E, D. From II, B is at the extreme left of the row. Thus, considering both I and II, we conclude that among the five children, D is the third and hence the middle child in the row. 
27.  Question: How many employees of Bank Z opted for VRS ? Statements:


Answer: Option A Explanation: From I, we have: number of employees who opted for VRS = 18% of 950 + 6% of 1100 = 171 + 66 = 237. From II, we cannot get the required answer until and unless the number of employees in agegroup 51 to 56 and other agegroups is known. 
28.  Question: Among M, N, D, P and K, who earns more than only the least earner among them ? Statements:


Answer: Option D Explanation: From I, we have: N > M, N > P, D > N. Thus, we have: D > N > M > P or D>N> P>M. But, from II, M earns more than P i.e. D > N > M > P. Also, since P earns less than K and N earns less than only D, so we have: D>N>K>M>P or D>N>M> K > P. Hence, either K or M earns more than only the least earner i.e. P. 
29.  Question: What is Sachin's rank from the top in a class of 25 students ? Statements:


Answer: Option C Explanation: From I, We know that in a class of 25 students, Amit ranks 18th from the bottom and 8th from the top. Sachin is three ranks above Amit and so, Sachin ranks 5th from the top. From II, Deepti ranks 23rd from the bottom and hence, 3rd from the top. Sachin, being 2 ranks below Deepti, is, thus, 5th from the top.
