What is the minimum number of guests that checking in on 7th and checked-out on 8th?

- A.
9

- B.
3

- C.
7

- D.
6

Answer: Option B

**Explanation** :

Total number of guests checking-in on 5^{th} and 6^{th} is 40 + 30 = 70.

Of these 70 guests, guests who have checked out on 6^{th} and 7^{th} is 25 + 23 = 48

∴ 70 - 48 = 32 guests staying till 8^{th} are those whose checked-in on 5^{th} or 6^{th}.

Now 35 guests leave on 8^{th}. To minimize guests checking in on 7^{th} and checking-out on 8^{th} we will maximize guests who checked out on 8^{th} but checked-in on 5^{th} or 6^{th}.

∴ Out of 35 guests checking out on 8th maximum 32 guests were from 5th or 6th.

⇒ Minimum, 35 – 32 = 3 guests who checked in on 7^{th} will have to check out on 8^{th}.

Hence, option (b).

What is the maximum number of guests that stayed for at least four months?

Answer: 12

**Explanation** :

We try to maximize guests who stay for four or more days.

Only those guests who checked in on 5th or 6th can stary for four or more days.

∴ We try to make these guests stay for as long as possible.

Refer the table below.

∴ At most 12 guests can stay for four months.

Hence, 12.

What is the minimum number of guests that stayed for at least two days?

Answer: 24

**Explanation** :

We try to maximize guests who stay for less than two days.

∴ Maximum guests should stay for only 1 day.

Refer the table below.

∴ Minimum (10 + 5 + 7 + 2 =) 24 guests stayed for at least 2 days.

Hence, 24.
