The given six friends marks in descending order are as follows
B > D > F > C > E > A
Since, B scored highest marks.
∴ B's marks = F's marks + 13 = 81 + 13 = 94Correct Option: C
Since, B scored highest marks.
∴ B's marks = F's marks + 13 = 81 + 13 = 94
D scored second highest marks. So, D's scored marks between 81 and 94.
Hence, D's possible marks = 89

According to question,
V always scored more than P.
V > P
P always scored more than Q.
P > Q
∴ V > P > Q
If R Score highest, we have
R >.......> T
If S Score highest, we have
S >.......> Q or S >.......> UCorrect Option: A
According to question,
V always scored more than P.
V > P
P always scored more than Q.
P > Q
∴ V > P > Q
If R Score highest, we have
R >.......> T
If S Score highest, we have
S >.......> Q or S >.......> U
If V ranks fifth, then P and Q coming after V will occupy sixth and seventh places respectively i.e., Q ranks the least. so, S Will score the highest.
 If R gets the most, V should be ranked not lower than

P always scored more than Q.
P > Q
∴ V > P > Q
If R Score highest, we have

If R gets the most, T ranks lowest and occupies seventh place. Since V always ranks above P and Q, so at the maximum, P and Q will occupy fifth and sixth places.
Hence, V Will not rank lower than fourth.
 If S is ranked second, which of the following can be true ?
