**Explanation** :

The captain wearing red jersey was the only captain sitting between the ones wearing yellow and pink jersey.

The player wearing yellow jersey is the only one sitting between the captains whose win rate is 68% and 72%.

One of the captains has 79% win rate. This cannot be the one wearing pink jersery because the percentage point difference in the win rate for the captain wearing blue and pink jerseys is 4% point.

∴ The captain wearing yellow jersery has 79% win rate.

Winning percentage of the captain wearing pink jersey is better that the captain wearing red jersey but less than captain wearing yellow jersey.

∴ Case 1 is rejected since Dhoni has a better winning percentage than Rohit.

The only possibility is:

Hence, 68.

**Explanation** :

The people are AL (Abrahim Lincoln), APJ (APJ Kalam Azad), VP (V Putin), EM (Emmanuel Macron) and BO (Barack Obama).

AL lived for 80 years. Hence AL = 630-710

Since VP was 12 years older than APJ, VP was born in 1709 and APJ was born in 1721. Hence, VP = 1709-1772 and APJ = 1721-1798.

This information, and some other information that is directly given can be tabulated as shown:

Since BO was not from India, APJ = India and BO = USA. Thus, the country of leadership of each president has been found.

Based on the above table, EM = 1638-1725 (87 years) or 1746-1787 (41 years)

Since EM had the longest life span, EM = 1638-1725. Hence, BO = 1746-1787. Thus, the life-span of each president has been found.

Also, India = Abolished Slavery. The given data can be shown as below:

The presidents from Russia and Portugal did not introduce Warsaw Pact. Hence, from the table, the president from France introduced Warsaw Pact. i.e. France = Warsaw Pact

Finally, AL and EM introdence Nuclear Armament and MNREGA, in no specific order. Thus, the final table is:

Thus, the life span of Barack Obama was 1746-1787.

Hence, option (e).
