CAT DI LR section has become increasingly tough beginning from 2015. DILR used to have distinct Data Interpretation sets and Logical reasoning puzzles. It used to be about computation and ability to read charts, graphs and tables for the Data Interpretation and Logical reasoning used to have Family tree, grid puzzles, arrangement, tournaments, cubes as some standard forms of puzzles.Since 2015 this pattern has been broken. With passing years, even the distinction between DI and LR has come down significantly. All you get in that one hour, are 8 high quality puzzles, with more than a few of them being significantly tough. Between CAT 2017 Question paper and CAT 2018 Question paper, you get to solve 32 actual CAT puzzles. This page intends to provide you just that. So, head on and crack those puzzles!

A company administers a written test comprising of three sections of 20 marks each – Data Interpretation (DI), Written English (WE) and General Awareness (GA), for recruitment. A composite score for a candidate (out of 80) is calculated by doubling her marks in DI and adding it to the sum of her marks in the other two sections. Candidates who score less than 70% marks in two or more sections are disqualified. From among the rest, the four with the highest composite scores are recruited. If four or less candidates qualify, all who qualify are recruited.

Ten candidates appeared for the written test. Their marks in the test are given in the table below:

Some marks in the table are missing, but the following facts are known:

1. No two candidates had the same composite score.

2. Ajay was the unique highest scorer in WE.

A composite score for a candidate (out of 80) is calculated by doubling her marks in DI and adding it to the sum of her marks in the other two sections.

Ajay was the unique highest scorer in WE.

Danish, Harini, and Indu had scored the same marks the in GA.

Indu and Jatin both scored 100% in exactly one section and Jatin’s composite score was 10 more than Indu’s.

Indu and Jatin both scored 100% in exactly one section and Jatin’s composite score was 10 more than Indu’s.

Now, if Indu had scored 100% in DI, then her CS would be 20 × 2 + 8 + x = 60 or, x should be 12.

Now, this is a problem as Indu could have less than 70% in 2 sections and so would not have been selected.

So, x = 20.

Indu and Jatin are in. The highest CS Geeta can get is 54, so Ester is also in.

Ajay could not have scored 19 in WE as his CS would then become 51 same as Danish.

So, Ajay should have scored 20 in WE resulting in an CS of 52.

Geeta should have scored a CS of more than 52 so she should have scored 19 or 20 in WE. But Ajay was the unique highest scorer in WE.

So, Geeta should have score 19 in WE.

Options 1 and 2 are both true. Option 3 is not true.

Therefore Both 1 and 2

The question is **"Which of the following statements MUST be true?" **

Choice D is the correct answer.
