    Hi, Zaffar

    You probably haven't gotten any replies yet b/c people feel overwhelmed when they see a ton of questions in one post! You'll get a better response if you start a separate thread for each question.

    Also, you say these questions are from "set 23" - can you be more specific about the source? I don't recognize "set 23" - and we do need you to post sources for the questions you post.
    Thanks!

    1. I think answer should be 8. Here we're talking about 3 different person. Lets suppose they are A, B & C.
    So different seating arrangements can be :-
    ABC 0
    AB C
    AC B
    BC A
    A BC
    B AC
    C AB
    0 ABC

    2. Perfect explanation.
    3.4 - NOt clear
    5. Agree on E. because stmt A says about tax rate and Stmt B says abt tax that he has to pay. So answer is not possible.
