## Ranking Test

#### Ranking Test

Direction: Read the following information carefully to answer the questions that follow.
I. Anita, Mahima Rajan, Lata, and Deepti are five cousins.
II. Anita is twice as old as Mahima.
III. Rajan is half the age of Mahima.
IV. Anita is half the age of Deepti.
V. Rajan is twice the age of Lata

1. Who is the eldest ?

1. Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.

##### Correct Option: A

Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.
Now we have the following arrangements in descending order
Deepti > Anita > Mahima > Rajan > Lata

Deepti is eldest

1. Which of the following pairs of persons are of the same age ?

1. Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.

##### Correct Option: D

Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.
Now we have the following arrangements in descending order
Deepti > Anita > Mahima > Rajan > Lata

There are no two persons of the same age as per the given information.

1. Anita is younger than whom ?

1. Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.

##### Correct Option: C

Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.

Now we have the following arrangements in descending order
Deepti > Anita > Mahima > Rajan > Lata

Anita is younger than Deepti.

1. If Mahima is 16 yr old, then what is the age of Lata ?

1. Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.

##### Correct Option: A

Let Age of Mahima = x.
Age of Anita = 2x.
Age of Rajan = x/2.
Age of Deepti = 4x.
Age of Lata = x/4.

Mahima's age = 16 yr
∴ Lata's age = 16/4 = 4 yr

1. The age of Amit is same as Sumit because they are twins, Richa is younger than Sumit, Richa is younger than Jyotsana but elder than Saurabh , Sumit is younger than Jyotsana. Who is the eldest among them ?

1. The age of Amit is same as Sumit
Amit = Sumit,
Richa is younger than Sumit
Sumit > Richa
Richa is younger than Jyotsana
Jyotsana > Richa
Sumit is younger than Jyotsana
Jyotsana > Sumit

##### Correct Option: B

The age of Amit is same as Sumit
Amit = Sumit,
Richa is younger than Sumit
Sumit > Richa
Richa is younger than Jyotsana
Jyotsana > Richa
Sumit is younger than Jyotsana
Jyotsana > Sumit
Finally
Amit = Sumit, Sumit > Richa
Jyotsana > Richa > Saurabh
Jyotsana > Sumit
On arranging the above data, we get
∴ Jyotsana > Sumit= Amit > Richa > Saurabh
So, Jyotsana is eldest among them.
