Directions(31-35): Let us tabulate the given information. No girl likes Mathematics or GK implies that those who like Mathematics and GK are males. S is a female because she is the sister of that student who likes Marketing. And one who likes Marketing is a male because there are two such students whose one brother each is there in the group. On similar basis one who likes Computer is a male. The Reasoning student is a female. U is a female and Q is a male. Now arrange the above information in the table given below. Note: M and F represent male and female respectively. S and U are females. Therefore, S and U do not like Mathematics, Computer, GK or Marketing. From the question part it is clear that S does not like English. Put cross marks (×) in corresponding cells. Note that S is the sister of the male who likes Marketing while one who likes Computer is the brother of the girl who likes Reasoning. What did you observe here? One of the persons in each pair is a male. Since Q is the brother of P, P is a female. Put a sign of F beside P in table. Thus Computer-Reasoning combination implies that P likes Reasoning whereas Q likes Computer. After putting tick mark and cross marks it becomes evident that S likes Banking. Once again put tick mark and cross marks in corresponding cells. What do you get now? U likes English. But we still do not know who like Mathematics, GK and Marketing respectively, among R, T and V. But these persons are male. Why? See the sign of M used beside these subjects. Put sign of M beside R, T and V
