In this type of questions, some clues are given regarding the order of occurrence of certain events. The candidate is required to analyse the given information, frame the right sequence and then answer the questions accordingly.
Six plays -- A, B, C, D, E and F are to be staged, one on each day from Monday to Saturday. The schedule of the plays is to be in accordance with the following :
(i) A must be staged a day before E.
(ii) C must not be staged on Tuesday.
(iii) B must be staged on the day following the day on which F is staged.
(iv) D must be staged on Friday only and should not be immediately preceded by B.
(v) E must not be staged on the last day of the schedule.
Play D is between which of the following pairs of plays ?
Clearly, D must be staged on Friday. A must be staged before E i.e., order AE must be followed. But E cannot be staged on last day. Also, B must be staged immediately after F i.e., order FB must be followed. But B cannot precede D. So, F and B can be staged on Monday and Tuesday and A and E on Wednesday and Thursday. C, which cannot be staged on Tuesday shall be staged on Saturday. Thus, the order followed will be :
Play D is between E and C.
So, the answer is (d).
