There are eight poets, namely, A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H in respect of whom questions are being asked in the examination. The first four are ancient poets and the last four are modern poets. The question on ancient and modern poets is being asked in alternate years. Those who like H also like G, those who like D like C also. The examiner who sets question is not likely to ask question on D because he has written an article on him. But he likes D. Last year a question was asked on F. Considering these facts, on whom the question is most likely to be asked this year ?

1. Last year Question was asked on F i.e. modern poet so this year question will be asked on ancient poet i.e. A,B,C,D.
2. Examiner likes D but who like D like C also so examiner like C.
3. Since examiner is not likely to ask question on D so he will ask on C.

Explanation :

Since the examiner likes D, it means he must like C also, since the question states that those who like D like C also.

Since last year a question was asked on F, who is a modern poet, this year a question will be asked on an ancient poet which means A,B,C or D

Now the examiner is not likely to ask question on D because he has written an article on him. So he will ask the question on C since he likes C as well

You have three boxes filled with candies. One jar is filled with banana candies, one jar is filled with lemon candies and one jar has apple candies.. All the jars are mislabelled (i.e. all the jars have wrong labels about what kind of candies they contain).

All the candies look very similar in shape, size and color and they even smell the same. The only way to distinguish them is by tasting.

You have to eat one and only one candy to determine the correct jar labels. You can eat that one candy from any jar you want as long as you eat only one in total.
