According to question,
A's weight is twice as much as of B.
1. A = 2B.
B's weight is four and half times as much as of C.
2. B = 4.5C
C's weight is half times as much as of D.
3. C = D/2.
D's weight is half as much as of E.
4. D = E/2.
E weight is less than A but more than C.
5. A > E > C
from 1 and 2
6. A = 2B = 9C
from 6 and 3
7. A = 2B = 9C = 4.5D
from 7 and 4
8. A = 2B = 9C = 4.5D = 2.25E
so from 8 and 5
A > B > E > D > CCorrect Option: B

 In a row of boys, Rajan is 10th from the right and suraj is 10th from the left. When Rajan and Suraj interchange their positions, Suraj will be 27th from the left. Which of the following will be Rajan's position from the right?

View Hint View Answer Discuss in Forum
Total number of boys = (10 + 27  1)
= 37  1 = 36Correct Option: E
Total number of boys = (10 + 27  1)
= 37  1 = 36
So, Rajan's position from the right
= (36  10) + 1 = 26 + 1 = 27
