3. In a hospital there were 200 diabetes, 150 hyperglycaemia and 150 gastro-enteritis patients.
Of these, 80 patients were treated for both diabetices and hyperglycaemia. Sixty patients were
treated for gastro-enteritis and hyperglycaemia, while 70 were treated for diabetes and gastro-
enteritis. Some of these patients have all the three diseases. Dr. Dennis treats patients with only
gastro-enteritis. Dr. Paul is a generalist. Therefore, he can treat patients with multiple diseases.
Patients always prefer a specialist for their disease. If Dr. Dennis had 80 patients, then the other
three doctors can be arranged in terms of the number of patients treated as:
1. Paul > Gerard > Hormis 2. Paul > Hormis > Gerard
3. Gerard > Paul > Hormis 4. None of these

5. Two boys are playing on a ground. Both the boys are less than 10 years old.  Age of the younger boy
is equal to the cube root of the product of the age of the two boys. If we place the digit representing
the age of the younger boy to the left of the digit representing the age of the elder boy, we get the age
of father of the younger boy. Similarly, if we place the digit representing the age of the elder boy to
the left of the digit representing the age of the younger boy and divide the figure by 2, we get the age
of mother of the younger boy. The mother of the younger boy is younger to his father by 3 years.
Then, what is the age of the younger boy?

announcement came, passengers of flight A left the hall and boarded the flight. Seating capacity of
each flight is two-third of the passengers who waited in the waiting hall for both the flights put
together. Half the passengers who boarded flight A are women. After boarding for flight A, 60% of the
