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.
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
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!
