MCQ

Some information is provided in the form of statements. On the basis of that information find the answer to the question which follows.

Coach Balkishen is trying to put together a team of four players for a tennis tournament. He has seven players available: males A, B and C and the females M, N, O and P. All players are of equal ability and there must be at least two males on the team. For a team of four, all players must be able to play with each other player.

• Player B cannot play with player M
• Player C cannot play with player P
• Player M cannot play with player O

If player O is selected and player B is rejected the team will consist of which foursome?

#### Options

• A, C, M and O

• A, C, N and O

• A, C, P and O

• A, N, P and O

#### Solution

A, C, N and O

Explanation:

If player O is selected and player B is rejected then
'A, C, M and O' and 'A, C, P and O' are straightaway discounted as these consist of combinations MO and CP respectively.

'A, N, P and O' is not acceptable as it consists of only a single male.

Only 'A, C, N and O' does not violate any restriction.
