## SET-2:- *Fortune Teller*

A fortune teller has a unique way of predicting his customer’s fate. He has kept three parrots in three different

cages. Each cage also has three cards with a single digit non-zero number inscribed on every card. No two cards

have the same number and no cages contain two cards with digits summing to ten. Further the total of the

numbers on the three cards in the first cage is greater than the second by two and the third cage by four. When

a customer asks for his prognosis, the fortune teller lets out the three parrots which randomly pick one card out

of their respective cages. Before the prognosis is made, the fortune teller totals the digits on the three cards

picked out and charges the customer the same number of rupees as the total of the cards. One day a customer

paid seven rupees for his prognosis.

## SET-3:- *6 Gamblers*

Six gamblers A, B, C, D, E, F go to a casino every evening and sit around a circular table and play teen-patti

together. Every evening they sit around the circular table such that they sit on different seats from the previous

evening and they sit neither adjacent nor opposite to the seat they sat on the previous evening.

- If seats are numbered from 1 to 6 , and on the first day, A sits on the 1st seat and E sits on the 3rd seat and all the gamblers came to the casino and played teen-patti for 10 consecutive evenings, then how many times would A and E sit adjacent to each other during these 10 evenings?
- If they came to the casino and played teen-patti over seven consecutive evenings and on the VIth evening the order they sat in was B, E, C, F, A, D in the clockwise direction, then how many possible combinations are available for the number of ways they could have sat on the first day?
- Now, if they came to the casino on 10 consecutive evenings, then at least how many times would C have to sit at the same place?
- Again, if they came to the casino on 11 consecutive nights, then at most how many times would A have to sit at the same place?
- If seats are numbered from 1 to 6, in clockwise direction and D cannot sit in seat 6 and B cannot sit in seat 3. If the order they sat on the 1st evening was E, D, C, A, B, F in seats 1 to 6 respectively, then who sat on seat 5 on the 3rd evening?
