Solution

(i) Assume that the three statements given by A are in the order True, False, True.
Then we get the following arrangement:

  I II III Organization
A T F T IBM
B T F T Infosys
C F F F Microsoft
D       Oracle

Here, all the three statements given by C become false, hence, we'll try the second combination.
(ii) Assume that the three statements given by A are in the order False, True, False.
Then we get the following arrangement:

  I II III Organization
A F T F (x IBM)
Microsoft
B F T F (x Infosys)
Oracle
C F T F (x Microsoft)
Infosys
D T F T IBM

Hence, here we get a definite arrangement.
B works with Oracle.
