Answers


A, the professor is married to E and E is the sister of B.
The wife of the industrialist is D. The industrialist is seated to the right of C. Thus, A and C cannot be industrialists. Therefore, B is the industrialist and C is the business man.
Now, we come to the following deductions :

A – Professor B – Industrialist
C – Businessman D – Female, hence unemployed
E – Female, hence unemployed

1. (c) A is the husband of E and E is the sister of B. Hence, A is the brother-in-law of B.

2. (d) It cannot be determined, as no information has been provided in the paragraph about the sitting position of A.
3. (c) As deduced earlier, B is the industrialist.
4. (d) It cannot be determined whether the businessman is married or unmarried.
5. (b) As A is a professor, he must be a graduate.
