### Answer : A

### Explanation

Before eliminating the wrongly listed names, the total number of persons present in that list will be

Options :

### Answer : D

### Explanation

Number of viewers sitting in between Kajal and Suresh can be calculated as;

35 - (9 + 7) = 19

So we can say now that 9 viewers were present in between Kajal-Meera and Meera-Suresh. So the position of Kajal is 10^{th} from Suresh.

Q 10 - If the rank of Harish is 8^{th} from the top in a group of 28 candidates and 2 new candidates are added just before and after him, what will be his new rank from bottom?

Adding of candidates just before Harish will not change his rank from bottom. Before addition, the rank of Harish from bottom is
