The scheduled time for class was 7:00 am with maximum permissible delay of 20 minutes.

Mr. Singh didn't teach on Thursday. Calculus was taught in the class that started at 7:20 am. Mr. Chatterjee took the class on Wednesday, but the didn't teach probability. The class on Monday started at 7:00am, but Mr. Singh didn't teach it. Mr. Dutta didn't teach ratio and proportion.
