Solution :

The given information can be analysed as follows :

(A) Mode of Transport : R travels by Car, Q by Aeroplane, 6 by Boat and T by Train.
Now, only P remains. So, P travels by Bus.
(B) Place of Travel : R goes to Bangalore, Q to Calcutta. Now, bus transport is not
available for Delhi of Chennai. So, P who travels by Bus goes to Hyderabad. S travels
by boat and hence, by (ii), did not go to Delhi. So, S goes to Chennai. Now, only T
remains. So, T goes to Delhi.

1. Clearly, the incorrect combination ia T — Aeroplane. So. the answer is (*).
2. Clearly, the correct combination for S is Chennai — Boat. So, the answer is (c).
3. Clearly, the incorrect combination is Delhi — Bus. So, the answer is (a).
4. Clearly, T travelled to Delhi by Train. So, the answer is (6).
