Bhim has assembled a basket of fruit as a holiday gift for each of his friends- Santosh, Tarun, Ujjwal, and Varun. A total of fifteen pieces of fruits-five apples, five oranges and five pears are distributed among the four baskets according to the following conditions: Santosh , Tarun and Ujjwal will each receive exactly two different types of fruit. Varun will receive only apples. Tarun will receive more pieces of fruit than Santosh. Each basket includes at least three pieces of fruit.
1. If Varun’s basket contains more pieces of fruit than Tarun’s basket, then Tarun’s basket must contain: I. Four pieces of fruit. II. At least one orange. III. At least one pear.
(a) I only (b) III only (c) Botha I and II (d) Both II and III
2. If Ujjwal’s basket contains more pieces of fruit than Tarun’s basket, all of the following must be false EXCEPT:
Santosh , Ujjwal and Varun must each receive at least three pieces, but Tarun must receive at least four pieces. The maximum number of pieces that any person may receive is six ( 6 + 3+ 3+3 = 15 ), and only Tarun may receive six pieces. Ujjwal and Varun each may receive as many as five pieces, while Santosh may receive only four pieces at maximum. At least one pear.
2. Answer (c)
Varun may receive no more than five pieces and Tarun may receive no fewer than four pieces. As a result, if Varun receives more pieces than Tarun, then Varun must receive five pieces, and Tarun must receive four pieces. Thus, statement (a) must be true. Since Varun will receive five pieces, none of the other three friends will receive any apple, accordingly, each of the other three friends must receive at least one orange and at least one pear. Thus, statement (b) and (d) must be true.

The gas provider Centrica has seen its half-year profits fall by 20% to £992 million. Despite this it has decided to increase its dividend to shareholders to 3.9p per share. The rise in energy prices released before the announcement of Centrica's profits was designed, said the company, to restore "reasonable profitability". The chief executive, Sam Laidlaw, said, "We produced a good set of results in tough market conditions... we will continue to concentrate on improving customer service in British Gas..." This is an interesting statement given the record rise in prices to households. The announcement of profits which are not far off one billion pounds, a day after the announcement of the rise in price and the increase in dividend to shareholders, is likely to provoke angry reaction. Many will question the extent of the market power that Centrica possesses. There will also be those that will question what the phrase 'reasonable profitability' means in the context of profits of nearly one billion pounds.
Question: 1) Announcing large profits, soon after announcing price rises, is likely to provoke angry reaction.
Question: 2) Companies increase shareholder dividends when profits fall.
Question: 3) One way companies can restore profitability is to increase prices.
