Adriana, Bandita, Chitra, and Daisy are four female students, and Amit, Barun, Chetan, and Deb are four male students. Each of them studies in one of three institutes – X, Y, and Z. Each student majors in one subject among Marketing, Operations, and Finance, and minors in a different one among these three subjects. The following facts are known about the eight students:

1. Three students are from X, three are from Y, and the remaining two students, both female, are from Z.
2. Both the male students from Y minor in Finance, while the female student from Y majors in Operations.
3. Only one male student majors in Operations, while three female students minor in Marketing.

Solution:

Let Daisy and Amit are from some institute A . Adriana and Ded be from the some institute B. So Bandita and Chitra must be from same institute (let’s say C) but as only two females are from Z so Bandita and Chitra must be from Z. Now the given information can be tabulated as bellow –

 Name Gender Institute Major Minor Adriana Female B Bandita Female Z Chitra Female Z Daisy Female A O Amit Male A Barun Male Y O Chetan Male X F Deb Male B

From point 3) three female students minor in Marketing and Daisy minors in operations (O) so other three must have minored in Marketing (M)

From point 2) Female student from Y majors in operations so Daisy cannot be from Y so Daisy is from X so is Amit. So Adriana and Deb are form Y. Also Barun and Deb both will miner in Finance (F) and Adrina will major in Operation (O).

Now the table will look like ,

 Name Gender Institute Major Minor Adriana Female Y O M Bandita Female Z F/O M Chitra Female Z F/O M Daisy Female X F/M O Amit Male X F O/M Barun Male Y O F Chetan Male X F O/M Deb Male Y M F

Now all the questions can be answered.

2. c) Finance

3. a) Finance

4. b) operation
