**Answer the following questions based on the information given below:**

In a coaching class, some students register online, and some others register offline. No student registers both online and offline; hence the total registration number is the sum of online and offline registrations. The following facts and table pertain to these registration numbers for the five months – January to May of 2023. The table shows the minimum, maximum, median registration numbers of these five months, separately for online, offline and total number of registrations. The following additional facts are known.

1. In every month, both online and offline registration numbers were multiples of 10.

2. In January, the number of offline registrations was twice that of online registrations.

3. In April, the number of online registrations was twice that of offline registrations.

4. The number of online registrations in March was the same as the number of offline registrations in February.

5. The number of online registrations was the largest in May.

**Answer the following questions based on the information given below:**

There are only three female students – Amala, Koli and Rini – and only three male students – Biman, Mathew and Shyamal – in a course. The course has two evaluation components, a project and a test. The aggregate score in the course is a weighted average of the two components, with the weights being positive and adding to 1.

The projects are done in groups of two, with each group consisting of a female and a male student. Both the group members obtain the same score in the project.

The following additional facts are known about the scores in the project and the test.

1. The minimum, maximum and the average of both project and test scores were identical – 40, 80 and 60, respectively.

2. The test scores of the students were all multiples of 10; four of them were distinct and the remaining two were equal to the average test scores.

3. Amala’s score in the project was double that of Koli in the same, but Koli scored 20 more than Amala in the test. Yet Amala had the highest aggregate score.

4. Shyamal scored the second highest in the test. He scored two more than Koli, but two less than Amala in the aggregate.

5. Biman scored the second lowest in the test and the lowest in the aggregate.

6. Mathew scored more than Rini in the project, but less than her in the test.

**Answer the following questions based on the information given below:**

An air conditioner (AC) company has four dealers – D1, D2, D3 and D4 in a city. It is evaluating sales performances of these dealers. The company sells two variants of ACs – Window and Split. Both these variants can be either Inverter type or Non-inverter type. It is known that of the total number of ACs sold in the city, 25% were of Window variant, while the rest were of Split variant. Among the Inverter ACs sold, 20% were of Window variant.

The following information is also known:

1. Every dealer sold at least two window ACs.

2. D1 sold 13 inverter ACs, while D3 sold 5 Non-inverter ACs.

3. A total of six Window Non-inverter ACs and 36 Split Inverter ACs were sold in the city.

4. The number of Split ACs sold by D1 was twice the number of Window ACs sold by it.

5. D3 and D4 sold an equal number of Window ACs and this number was one-third of the number of similar ACs sold by D2.

6. D2 and D3 were the only ones who sold Window Non-inverter ACs. The number of these ACs sold by D2 was twice the number of these ACs sold by D3.

7. D3 and D4 sold an equal number of Split Inverter ACs. This number was half the number of similar ACs sold by D2.

**11. CAT 2023 LRDI Slot 3 | LR - Selection & Distribution**

How many Split Inverter ACs did D2 sell?

Answer: 14

**Explanation** :

We can make the following table based on the conditions given in the question.

Number of Split Inverter ACs sold by D2 = 14.

Hence, 14.

Workspace:

**12. CAT 2023 LRDI Slot 3 | LR - Selection & Distribution**

What percentage of ACs sold were of Non-inverter type?

- A.
33.33%

- B.
75.00%

- C.
20.00%

- D.
25.00%

Answer: Option D

**Explanation** :

We can make the following table based on the conditions given in the question.

Total non-Inverter ACs = 6 + 9 = 15.

∴ Required % = 15/60 × 100 = 25%

Hence, option (d).

Workspace:

**13. CAT 2023 LRDI Slot 3 | LR - Selection & Distribution**

What was the total number of ACs sold by D2 and D4?

Answer: 33

Join our Telegram Group for CAT Preparation.

**Explanation** :

We can make the following table based on the conditions given in the question.

D1 and D3 sold a total of 27 ACs.

Hence, D2 and D4 sold a total of 60 - 27 = 33 ACs

Hence, 33.

Workspace:

**14. CAT 2023 LRDI Slot 3 | LR - Selection & Distribution**

Which of the following statements is necessarily false?

- A.
D1 and D3 sold an equal number of Split ACs.

- B.
D1 and D3 together sold more ACs as compared to D2 and D4 together.

- C.
D2 sold the highest number of ACs.

- D.
D4 sold more Split ACs as compared to D3.

Answer: Option B

**Explanation** :

We can make the following table based on the conditions given in the question.

D1 and D3 together sold 27 ACs whereas D2 and D4 together sold 33 ACs.

Therefore, option (b) is false.

Hence, option (b).

Workspace:

**15. CAT 2023 LRDI Slot 3 | LR - Selection & Distribution**

If D3 and D4 sold an equal number of ACs, then what was the number of Non-inverter ACs sold by D2?

- A.
7

- B.
5

- C.
6

- D.
4

Answer: Option B

Join our Telegram Group for CAT Preparation.

**Explanation** :

We can make the following table based on the conditions given in the question.

D3 and D4 sold equal number of ACs i.e., each of them sold 12 ACs.

For D3: 12 = 2 + 0 + 7 + (4 - c)

⇒ c = 1

∴ Number of non-Inverter ACs sold by D2 = 4 + 1 = 5

Hence, option (b).
