        E is sitting second to the left of D. Hence, data in statement II alone are sufficient to
        answer the question.
34. (b) From statement I, N > M > K
       From statement II,     L > N
       From both the statements, L > N > M > K
       But height of J is not clear.
       Thus, second tallest friend cannot be determined.
       Hence, data neither in statement I nor in statement II are sufficient to answer the
       question.
35. (a) From statement I,
       Number of students in the class  = 21 or 22 or 23 or 25 or 26
       From statement II,
       Number of statements in the class = 25 or 26 or 27 or 28 or 29 or 30
       Since, number of students can be divided into groups of 5 students, therefore number of
       students must be multiple of 5                                                          
       Number of students in the class = 25 or 30
       Combining statements I and II.
       Number of students in the class = 25
       Hence, the data in both the statements I and II together are necessary to answer the
       question.
