Humidity in Mumbai was lowest in week ____________

A. W3
B. W2
C. W5
D. W6

#### SOLUTION

Solution : A

To minimize the calculation, take baseline as 100. Make the table based on 100 as the bas evalue for both parameters in both cities. Taking W1=100, we can approximately calculate the values at all places.

C. 8:10
D. Indeterminate

#### SOLUTION

Solution : D

To minimize the calculation, take baseline as 100. Make the table based on 100 as the bas evalue for both parameters in both cities. Taking W1=100, we can approximately calculate the values at all places.

These are just a relative value and not the exact one. Hence answer option D

A good week is one when temperature decreases by 3% or more & humidity doesn’t change by more than 5% over the previous week. For how many weeks did Delhi experience a ‘good week’?

A. 0
B. 1
C. 2
D. 3

#### SOLUTION

Solution : B

Temperature decreases by 3% or more only in W4. For Delhi, humidity doesn’t change by more than 5% over the previous week only in W4. Hence answer = 1

If the humidity in Delhi & Mumbai was 60 in W1, then the no. of times the humidity was less than 60 in both cities from W2 to W6 is ____________

A. 0
B. 1
C. 2
D. 3

#### SOLUTION

Solution : C

Take it as 100, the value will make a difference, the conditions hold good for week 4 and 6 only in both cases.

Hence, option (c)

A. 13
B. 12
C. 11
D. 9

#### SOLUTION

Solution : D

Overall rank of Rohit is 11 and center rank of Rohit is 2. Therefore, the required difference is 11 - 2 = 9.
