If A is selected, then C must be chosen.

C

If B is selected, then G must be chosen

D

C must be selected

Solution

## The correct option is B If B is selected, then D must be chosen.Option (A): If B is selected, then A and E cannot be selected. The other 3 must be from CDFG but D and F have to be together so the team will be B, D, F and any one of C or G. So D must be selected in the team, hence this Option is definitely TRUE. Option(B): If A is selected B cannot be chosen. The other 3 members can be any 3 from C, D, E, F and G. This Option is not definitely TRUE. Option (C): If B is selected, then A and E are ruled out. The other 3 can be chosen from C, D, F and G. Of this D and F must be chosen with the last member being either C or G. This Option is not definitely TRUE. Option (D): C need not be chosen on every team. If we select DFEG, this is a valid team without C. Option(A)DI and LR
