Dear Reader,

Big **IBPS Exams** are starting very soon (RRB in Sep, PO in Oct, tentatively.) Below you will see a recent type of ‘ordering’ problem (Reasoning) from PO exams of the last year. The biggest **advantage** of learning this types is that you can **easily score** in these problems. Below you will see an example question and solution.

**Example Question:**

*Read the below ***passage** carefully and answer the **questions** that follow:

In a classroom, there were 6 children, namely, Kavi, Niki, Vini, Pavi, Rishi, and Rakhi. The teacher distributed answer sheets of a particular subject. Rakhi scores higher than both Vini and Pavi, but lesser than Kavi. Kavi is not the highest scorer and Niki scores higher than Kavi. Rishi scores only lower than two children. The top score is 80 and the lowest is 30. Also, the difference in marks between the marks of any two students in 10.

1) Which student has scored the second lowest mark?

2) Find the top scorer.

3) Find the score of Rakhi

**Solution:**

Let us try to order the marks by students based on the given conditions.

**Condition:** “Rakhi scores higher than both Vini and Pavi, but lesser than Kavi.”

**Inference:** Based on the above condition, we can easily write: **Kavi > Rakhi > Vini > Pavi **

**Condition:** “Kavi is not the highest scorer and Niki scores higher than Kavi”

*Inference:* If Niki scores higher than Kavi, we can place him in front of Kavi.

**Niki > Kavi > Rakhi > Vini > Pavi**

**Condition:** “Rishi scores only lower than two children.”

*Inference:* Rishi should have ranked third after the first two.

**Niki > Kavi > Rishi > Rakhi > Vini > Pavi **

**Condition:** “Highest marks is 80 and lowest is 30 with a difference of 10 marks between each other”

*Inference:* Based on the above condition, we can write down the marks as follows:

**Niki (80) > Kavi (70) > Rishi (60) > Rakhi (50) > Vini (40) > Pavi (30)**

Let us now **answer** the 3 questions one by one. (See the questions below the original passage for reference.)

*So our ***answers** are:

1. **Vini** would have scored the second lowest marks.

2. **Niki** would be the top scorer.

3. Rakhi’s score is **50**.

Hope the above solution is helping you. All the very best!
