There's another problem which appeared in the paper..

5 people giving 5 different statements about no. of persons interested in the project. the statements were something like this:

person 1: none of us is interested in the project
person 2: exactly one is interested ..
person 3: exactly 2 are interested ..
person 4: exactly 3 are interested..
person 5: exactly 4 are interested ..

the person (s) interested in the project are only saying correct statement and others are bluffing. so find out no. of people interested in the project.

Ans: i guess 1.

The correct answer is "Exactly 1 person is interested"...And its the person who says so

Couldnt get u. Which one was the only possibility??

see, most of us have marked the answer as 10563 or watever AFAIk it was option 2 in the booklet series B. so what i am saying is that, it is the only possible answer in the first place. the question had asked for the max value. i hope u got it 😃

but there can be a scope of error too
