    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 = 94

    Correct 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



Direction: Read the following information carefully and answer the question that follow.

    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

    Correct 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.

    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

    Correct Option: C

    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 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.

    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

    Correct Option: D

    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 S ranks 2nd, R ranks 1st and T ranks lowest. The order V > P > Q will be followed. out of all the given options, only the arrangement given as per option (d)i.e., R > S > U > V >P > Q > T is possible. Clearly, options (a), (b) and (c) cannot follow . So option (d) is correct.
