Answer the following question based on the information given below.

You have to decide whether the data given in the statements is sufficient to answer the question. Read all the statements carefully and find which of the statement(s) is/are sufficient to answer the given question.
What is Mohit’s rank from the top in an annual appraisal of a FMCG Company comprising of 70 sales executives?
I. Mohit is 5 ranks below Rashmi from the top
II. Rashmi’s rank from the bottom is 44
III. Mohit is 5 ranks above Rashmi from the bottom
Any two of the three
Only II and III
Only I and either II or III
Only II and either I or III
Answer: Option D
Note that none of the options have a single statement as the answer. So, there is no point evaluating individual statements alone.
Also, statements I and III contradict each other w.r.t. Mohit’s position. Hence, only I and III cannot provide the answer. Hence, options 1 and 3 can be eliminated.
Since it is known that there are 70 executives, statement II fixes Rashmi’s position as 44th from bottom (or 27th from top).
Now, statement I (or III) provides Mohit’s position w.r.t. Rashmi. Hence, Mohit’s rank from the top can be found.
Hence, only statement II and either statement I or III are sufficient to answer the question.
Hence, option 4.
